I don't live in Chicago and don't want to come off as some expert of the Windy City. However, I've been noticing recent rhetoric from plenty of people about the ongoing situation in Chicago. Rhetoric that's in the right place but I feel like it's a bit misguided because the complexity of the situation is not fully overstood. The biggest platform I've seen so far was Boyce Watkins channel, one of my favorite channels. There are old videos going around of wypipo imitating Black people to commit crimes with...

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...

1. Stop caping, Stop cooning, Stop tap dancing, Stop catering and last but not least Stop falling head over heels for wypipo. Don't go out of your way to give them any remorse or sympathy. Time to practice apathy because one day, these same people who say they are not racist but keep the white power structure intact will have to decide if they want to ignore the problems of Black people or tip toe around Black issues while clinging on to their privilege. 2. Stop defending Black celebrities. They are just as...

Black Family, Dating / 26.07.2017

First things first, I didn’t always believe in Black Love…… At an early age I fell victim to brainwashing, bombarded with eurocentric beauty standards growing up. This programming affected the way I approached non-black women compared to Dark skin women, when I grew older. I ended up convincing myself that all women are beautiful and color didn’t matter but that was a clever lie… In my mind, white women were always number 1 when it came to approaching and dating women. In my last committed relationship, I thought that...

Utopia from John Pilger on Vimeo. If you plan to watch on your mobile, the video automatically goes full screen when you press play. I've always heard Australia was the most racist country in the world. Before I watched this documentary, I had very little knowledge, so I never had an informed opinion. I never doubted that Australian whites were racist and this documentary showed me how open, blatant, delusional and comfortable they were about the treatment of the original inhabitants. The creator of the documentary is a white Australian...

*Click on the pic to see the original Press release. With the wide range of subjects I write about, I have to continually remind my readers about the objective of a unified Africa. I'm continually reminded with the political education, organizing for our community I participate in, here in Toronto. Whether I post about police brutality, a book or movie, end of the day it's all about Liberation of Africa for the people. All the problems we are facing as a collective is related to the challenges Africa is facing....

EDUtainment / 27.01.2016

The return of Star War was a fan fiction roller coaster for many people across the globe. The Force Awakens, after its release last December, broke several records and has already become the most successful movie of all time. Months before the release, some fans voiced their feelings behind John Boyega, who is of british born, African descent actor being one of the lead characters. #BoycottStarWarsVII brought out the racist, ugly side of sci-fi fandom for the first time I have ever seen. All that confidence can be credited...

I read this story recently about Kyle Lydell Canty, which only gave the idea of this post more ammunition. He is a US citizen who resided in a Vancouver homeless shelter. He went through the process of claiming refuge from police brutality. He personally prepared and presented his case on October 23rd. He cited the UN who condemned the States in 2014 on the issue of police brutality. Naturally he gave his own examples and experiences during police interactions and he also talked about well-known cases like Michael Brown and Eric...

Education / 28.12.2015

Self-Education is a revolutionary tactic because you’re acquiring knowledge that will increase your sense of self-worth, not only for yourself but future generations as well. Knowledge of self is easily translatable to love of self. My first post was "The Importance of Self-Education." I wrote this short guide so I’m not just preaching the importance but laying out concrete steps. When you first begin and continue this journey, it can be difficult without the pressure from teachers or professors making deadlines for assignments. There are no consequences for...
