    The Black body, more so of women, have stood on the opposite side of the narrow Eurocentric standards of beauty. Black hairstyles have defiantly rebelled against and even when straightened added creative magic of Blackness and Boldness. 

    Black hair, whether relaxed or natural, locked or shaven is beautiful. Black women are beautiful.

"I’m embarrassed to say this, but I’ll say it. I’ve had a really hard time finding work, so I’ve been living with my grandmother. And she’s told me recently that she doesn’t have the money to feed me. So I’ve been eating at my friend’s house. I go over there, and I’m too embarrassed to ask for anything, but his dad always insists. He says: ‘Why aren’t you eating? Please, eat!’ This has really caused my idea of ‘family’ to widen. I’ve learned that your family can be anyone."

    I’m at this point in my life where I am truly lost. I don’t know where to go or where to start. I’m really starting to question my true purpose on earth. Everything is coming so fast yet so slow at the same time. Everyday is the same routine.

    I’ve come accustomed to feeling a sort of loss. To me it means the heart desires more, the mind is begging for focus and understanding. Find things, even little things to please you. Eliminate those people who bring you no good no matter their past relevancies. Literally write down your goals and dreams. Know that none of them have to happen, but go for them anyway. We shouldn’t waste our twenties thinking what we should be doing instead of just living and loving and learning ourselves. Just be, look for yourself in every little corner.

    "14-year-old Parkview High School Freshman, Caleb Christian was concerned about the number of incidents of police abuse in the news.  Still, he knew there were many good police officers in various communities, but had no way of figuring out which communities were highly rated and which were not.  

    So, together with his two older sisters: Parkview High School senior Ima Christian, and Gwinnett School of Math, Science, and Technology sophomore, Asha Christian, they founded a mobile app development company– Pinetart Inc., under which they created a mobile app called Five-O.

    Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer.  It also allows them to rate that officer in terms of courtesy and professionalism and provides the ability to enter a short description of what transpired.  These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured.

    Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”

    It has been less than two months since I started a new job and moved away from St. Louis, Missouri. The murder of Michael Brown and the attacks on others in Ferguson, Missouri have been devastating to read about this week. I have thought time and again of the semester that I taught Invisible Man…

  10. Every time I’ve tried to calculate my worth in this world some body has corrected me. “You’re acting white, where’s your gay pride, what do you have to be unhappy about; and the popular ‘you’re black.’” I don’t want to tell you who to be and calculate if I’m satisfied thereafter. I want sense, communication, justice, and reciprocation without tallies. Worth should cease at tangible things, of which the human heart is not. Tagging worth to people is ceasing essence of the spirit and pricing the priceless.

  11. I despise the work because I’m compelled to do it, daily. It’s a constant reminder of what I am not and where I remain. I admire the work because it provides mental stimulation and financial support for things still in my mind.

This is disgusting as hell. It’s the saddest thing ever.
