Nothing happens by accident including the opiod epidemic….

Flipmode Album Update ¦ Hypocrisy Of “Trans” Movement

Since revealing that Flipmode Squad has reassembled to record a 20-year anniversary album, the anticipation from fans of hiphop has been off the charts. Rah Digga whet the appetite further by dropping a snippet of a track on Instagram with her verse.

Something less appetizing, however, is the genetically-modified and fake food that has been slowly creeping into our food chain with videos showing all manner of products from cabbage and lettuce to eggs and beef being made and sold to unsuspecting consumers.

Lord Jamar also highlights a recent episode of Dr Phil on which a Black woman claimed to be white; as people were quick to ridicule her and brand her crazy, how is she any different to people who claim to be transgender? Continue reading

How the EPA and the Pentagon downplayed a growing toxic threat 

I’ve been consciously moving away from these products but I’m probably already poisoned like most of you are…

The chemicals once seemed near magical, able to repel water, oil and stains.

By the 1970s, DuPont and 3M had used them to develop Teflon and Scotchgard, and they slipped into an array of everyday products, from gum wrappers to sofas to frying pans to carpets. Known as perfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, they were a boon to the military, too, which used them in foam that snuffed out explosive oil and fuel fires. Continue reading

» 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

The all-Black Utopian Ghost City that Lost its Soul

6782324748_3fa939147f_b

I never heard of this place and it’s a damn shame how YT did it…

In the heart of what was North Carolina’s old tobacco and cotton-field industry, lies the remains of Soul City, an unrealised utopia born in the midst of America’s 1970s urban crisis, intended to encourage black empowerment in a new all-African American planned community. Bankrolled by Nixon’s Republican government, “built by black people and for black people”, Soul City was projected to have 44,000 inhabitants by the year 2004. As you’re about to see from photographs of the half-empty town, things didn’t exactly go as planned… Continue reading

First Evidence that Microplastics Travel Up the Food Chain and Into Seal Bellies

Those folks want to kill everything off in their fight against nature…

You’re familiar with the food chain: little fish eats plankton, bigger fish eats the little fish, then a seal eats the bigger fish, thus consuming the energy from all three smaller animals. But what if the little fish had also eaten an indigestible piece of plastic? New evidence demonstrates the plastic could make it all the way up the food chain into the seal. Continue reading
