With the scale of Ma'at, let's put feelings, emotions and fandom aside and weigh the legacies of 2 giants of music history respectably. Ma'at represents justice and truth. MJ was never accused of harming the Black community. The Pied Piper has notoriously been followed by allegations of sexual, verbal and mental abuse over Black girls and women for decades. MJ used his music to inspire and reach the people in a positive way i.e. " They Don't Care About Us" His "Do You Remember The Time" Video is the ONLY depiction...

This post has been sitting in the mental chamber for a bit cause I actually thought this insult would get tired. I remember when the the term first bubbled up a few years ago, my curious mind googled the origin of the derogatory context of the word. It led me to an Instagram post created by 2 black females who had a podcast or a blog. Something told me to save the page but I didn't! You'll have to take my word for it but the origin of this...

Yesterday, I was travelling home from work downtown on the lovely TTC. The bus pulls up to the subway station and I'm about to get off until I hear yelling. Some middle age man was yelling and pointing at the bus driver who happened to be a Black woman. She was trying to calm him down on her own but he was continuing to talk over her getting to loud for a Sunday morning. Long story short, I decided to interrupt. I came at him with the same aggression he...

2018 is going to be an interesting year for crypto currencies. Bitcoin was at 1K this same time last year sitting on doubt about it's future. Currently BTC is at 10k after a huge dip from 20k highs in December, mostly due to the exploding interest into the Godfather of Crypto. Bitcoin may be down but it still solidified itself as an OG, the general leading the charge to pave the way for digital revolution. Several other crypto currencies have been flourishing behind the shadow of Bitcoin and...

So I’m just minding my own business, working myself towards greatness and I’m interrupted by a letter from my bank. To summarize the yada yada yada, they want me to open a chequing account that returns %1 cashback on all my purchases, which I receive at the end of the year. Based on their calculations, I could receive $300 cashback every year. They’re also offering me $300 to open the account, so potentially I could have $600 by the end of next year……     I’m not even shocked they tried to...

This is the topic everybody loves to hate but whatever your thoughts are on the subject, I only care about preserving Blackness first. This piece is as real as it gets, it will require open mindedness, a touch of patience and strong mental fortitude to continue. If you catch feelings or your emotions become to fragile to continue reading…..  Naturally, heterosexuals have always been the majority in society. LGBTQ peoples are produced from heterosexuals and never the other way around, so logically, remaining the majority is guaranteed. I know...

The one drop rule was manifested out of hate, a reaction towards Black bi-racial brothers and sisters. This hate can only be described as animalistic and no surprise this definition emerged from the Amerikkkan south. These animals couldn’t possess the knowledge and the irony of their own rule, which happens to be the key to their own existence.  If you haven’t seen this video of Craig Cobbs, this illustrates my point above exactly. Now Cobbs actually took a second DNA test and apparently, he claims it read 100 %...

*Kwame Ture formerly Stokely Carmicheal So there I was, sitting at the front row for Afrikan Liberation Day which was well under way. I wished my Keynote was first so I could really enjoy the program that I helped organize. Representatives of the Harriet Tubman Organization and the Afrikan Union Region 6 in Toronto had already given their solidarity statements which were both powerful. I talked myself multiple times into believing that I wouldn't be nervous...

I had the pleasure of writing, preparing, practicing and finally delivering a keynote speech for Afrikan Liberation day last weekend. This is a yearly event I help organize and I manifested the keynote after our original speaker we had pulled out due to scheduling issues. The funny thing was I initially turned down the opportunity. I didn’t see myself as a public speaker *yet*. I didn’t feel like I reached my full potential as an organizer, I didn’t feel like I was anywhere near the level of the great...
