ADOS Its origins, troublesome ties and fears it’s dividing Black folk in the fight for reparations

I believe the ADOS thing is very divisive and only serves to divide and conquer the Afrikan diaspora and keep us from coming together economically and politically… big ups to the Final Call for this article…

There are many organizations and individuals who have spent decades of their existence, and lives, advocating for reparations to be given to the descendants of enslaved Africans in America, during the more than 500 years Black people have spent living in this country and subjected to physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, educational, chemical and medical abuse and mistreatment.

» Black People and the Crowd Economy

One viable way to economically empower ourselves on the low…

I read Antonio Moore’s article Black Wealth Hardly Exists, Even When You Include NBA, NFL And Rap Stars and found it to be spot-on in its analysis of the current situation of the average Black family and their lack of wealth the dearth of Black home ownership and a true path forward. One of the first things that struck me in his article was the fact the so many Black celebrities fame and wealth are talked about in the news and on social media, but only upon in-depth research are you able to find the reality of Black social and economic daily life. I think about the Black people that I know are on the front line of this battle for economic empowerment and the pursuit of the American dream of home ownership. Continue reading

Black Love in 2018 – A Model of Love during Economic Scarcity

Attorney Antonio Moore discusses the layout of love in the African American community as we enter 2018 and the shrinking of black wealth nationally.

Drakism And Our Emotional Breakdown https://allhiphop.com/2013/10/14/drak…

The larger question is have our relationships fell prey to emotions that are out of control entirely? In-between all of the the Instagram selfies and Facebook self portraits, has the development of the identity of ME and pseudo self dependence created a clash with our ability to connect with one another intimately? To understand the argument you must first start with an understanding of intimacy, not the physical cuddling or emotional coddling. The part where you are open enough to care to your core for someone else as a mate. I see an emotional gap between people in modern American relationships across race, whereby we did not just lose functional roles with the casting away of many social values over the last 30 years. We had an emotional break where (in some cases) as framed within Drake’s lyrics, men sadly now shed more tears than women when it’s decided it’s over, and more often than ever women fight far too little to get the connection back.

Kwanzaa’s Ujamaa and Ujima | Grassroots Economic Organizing

Some good ideas here…

Kwanzaa is an African-inspired holiday practiced by millions of African Americans from December 26 – January 1.  African values, which are geared toward care of the whole or the collective rather than the individual, are remembered during this 7-day celebration.  Seven principles or values make up the foundation of Kwanzaa—they are listed at the end of this article.
