They actually started to listen to the sloppy, ill-crafted alt-right gibberish the campaign writers were feeding Donald Trump.

It is important as sistahs, mothers, and partners in our community that we don’t allow anything to cause us to lose site of the reality that we are facing.

Tweet ( American citizens over the age of 18 are entitled to vote. It is written in The Constitution how the country would vote.

Staying Sane During the “Black Lives Matter” Movement.

Repetition for retention is a great tool to help people remember important events and matters.  Political movements like “Black Lives Matter” are not going away anytime soon.  Do not let the search for justice make you go crazy.  You are no help to anyone if you are physically sick or mentally checked out. Know that it is ok to have your stance and to have your peace of mind. Oh…and the 66 books of the bible.

Malcolm X Started Me on the Quest for Humanity.

It’s not simply color, or lack thereof, that white people see…the problem is they don’t acknowledge what they see is a human being. This may seem off to some because we tend to be able to accept that in this world bad people do bad things to people. However, even in those situations the humanity as in physical state of being is usually never the issue. For black people in America it I’ve come to believe it is the primary issue; it is at the root of the war we are fighting. I have Malcolm X to thank for putting me, through his work, on the road to that understanding.

Stop Giving Stupidity Ammunition.

At the same time, we have to stop thinking that “sharing is caring”.  I know many childhood shows encouraged us to do this so we could think of more than ourselves, but sometimes we take it too far. We all know one person that would take Trump’s statement to heart. We all know someone who turn it into a joke. We all know a person whose hate for government is more than their love for society. Since we know people like this, we know that this information in their hands is not productive.  Common sense should tell you that some things do not need to be repeated.  It is giving stupidity a chance to run amuck more than it already is. 

Yes, Biden Has My Vote.

However, I know I will contribute my vote to the cause of ending this current administration. Think about it, the leader of this nation has yet to truly talk to the nation about what we are facing. He hasn’t offered comforting words. Some of us would rather listen to just about any other person except the sitting president. There was not enough compassion in this man to address the fear of his people. He is devoid of leadership…I’ll take my chances into Biden.
