The voices of women are raising in an alarming quantity. Women poets. Women musicians. Women speakers. Women teachers. Women with messages that must be heard are stepping in the limelight beautifully.

For centuries, it’s been “a man’s world”. The tide is changing and the voices of women are rising with a message of harmony, sanity and peace. Violence by hand, gun, chemical, pure neglect is diminishing. We are happy people on Earth, again.

According to Herstory, things are as we make them. We make them peaceful. We make them harmonious. We make things from abundance that surrounds us. We are co-Creators with the Universe. It is ours to create within. We create happiness and peace.

100 African Cities Destroyed By Europeans

This is an amazing article I feel compelled to share.   The biggest, best kept secret on the planet is the TRUTH ABOUT AFRICANS and AFRICAN CIVILIZATIONS.

After you read this article you will be able to answer the one burning question  black and African people all over the world have asked for centuries:

Why do the most powerful whites and their white foot soldiers hate black and African people?

Which leads to four other questions that must be asked–and answered:

  1. Why do the most powerful whites want to control Africa and its people?
  2. Why are the most powerful whites committing mass genocide against blacks and Africans via man-made, genetically-designed viruses (like HIV/AIDS and Ebola),  manufactured tribal conflicts, and GMO-infected foods that cause long-term sterility and illness?
  3. And why are the vast majority of black images in TV, music, and film degrading images designed to infect us with a sense of…

Back in Florida!

After being uprooted from my lakeside apartment in Oakland Park, Florida, in February 2013, moving three times, with the last one being to Atlanta with my daughter, I am finally back in my beloved South Florida.

On the road home.

On the road home. When I crossed the state line from Georgia to Florida, something magical happened!

20151001_125910Now, that I’m back I know why I missed Florida so much.

First, there is the beach! The Atlantic Ocean was calling to me in Atlanta and I could not wait to get there. So, my first morning back, I got in my car, emptied of its cargo into the tiny bedroom given me by my generous brother. I drove over the Intercoastal to Palm Beach and immediately, I was caught up by the sea, sand, and sky. The beautiful clouds beckoned me to the seashore but I was not to be distracted by this dreamy moment because I was destined to arrived at the place where my second reason for moving back to Florida was.


For almost 2 years, while living in Atlanta, I only saw my Dad (96) three times. I spoke with him almost every day. But this was not enough. I needed to see, touch, hug, and kiss my Dad.

Although he’s 96, he is alert, mindful, and reminiscent of decades gone by. He always asked me where I was, what I was doing, and how I was feeling. He always tells me to take good care of myself. Truthfully, it is my father’s counsel that has kept me from ever being depressed.

Upon returning to South Florida, I am able to visit him two or three times a week, now. This is such a blessing and I am ever grateful for having the ability to make this choice to return.

The thir20151003_140229-1d reason that I’m so happy to be back home is seeing so many of my friends. Lisa invited me to a luncheon with women the first Saturday I was home. I drove to Hallandale and really enjoyed meeting these progressive women.

The Real Message Behind the HIGHLY PUBLICIZED Racist Incidents Against Black People


Significant insight into the matter!

Originally posted on Racism Is White Supremacy:

What is the real message behind the recently HIGHLY PUBLICIZED MEDIA COVERAGE of racist assaults and murders against black people?

It is NOT  what some people might think. This is my take on it–and you are free to agree OR disagree:

I believe these incidents are being PUBLICIZED not because the media is exposing injustice. It is NOT being done to “shame” white people, white society, or the individual whites responsible for the assaults and murders. It is NOT being done to discourage the violence OR to reduce the odds that this will happen again. Actually, it is just the opposite:

Keep in mind that as the economy winds down, and the social, financial, and psychological instability and fears expands within the white and non-white U.S. populations, the goal is to KEEP THE FOCUS ON BLACK PEOPLE — and other non-white people (aka “Muslims” and “Hispanics.”)

Good article. We need change in this country.

Capitalism is an ideology or concept that is predicated on the exploitation and manipulation of the human race. The maintenance and survival of this concept is central to mass political, social, and economic control represented within the contexts of fear, indifference, and radical individualism. The byproducts of a system, based on ideologies contrived to sustain this infrastructure, makes a fictional enemy of everyone and everything associated with it. Hysterical paranoia, a social delusion, is embedded in and a result of years of psychological conditioning through mediums of propaganda and media influence. Groups, formulated through shared cultures and social contexts, are taught to fear and suspect other groups that are different from their own. These groups are also taught to suspect and castigate “in group” members when any action or behavior can be seen as a violation of social and class norms.

Wal-Mart Sucks

In 3 days, I’ve been to 3 Wal-marts in Atlanta, GA. The first time at Cascade. The second time on Cleveland Avenue to exchange goods that were torn or incorrectly packaged that I bought at Cascade. The third time on Hwy 85 top exchange goods incorrectly packaged that I bought at Cleveland Avenue. At the final location, Hwy 85, I used the restroom. 1 out of 4 stalls was working and that one was covered with toilet paper and other debris. What did I learn? Walmart is NOT the store for me. The managers at the last two stores were courteous but the staff was rude and provide extremely POOR customer service. Now, all you Walmart shoppers out there, I get it. You have no consideration for your personal service. You could care less about product quality. You’ll buy anything cheap. Walmart distributes goods made in El Salvador, Thailand, Honduras, and China. I got NOTHING made in America. This is why you cannot make a living here because you’re just a consumer with no sense of quality control. You get what you pay for. Therefore, I will refrain from ever entering another Walmart. I’ll let you ignorant consumers fill the bank accounts of the Walton family that spends your money and sits around their board table laughing at your stupidity.

Judge Not

On Tue, Jun 30, 2015 at 11:11 AM, Joan Cartwright wrote:

The “judge not” mantra is ripping me in two. This country’s system is based upon judgment of people who are locked up ad infinitum. I’m sick of the biblical JOKES played on the people. And we never believe anything until the white man says it. So, share this with the Non-believers.

DINZULU-GENE-TINNIE words of wisdom

The following response is from artist, author, educator, and mystic Dinizulu Gene Tinnie:

According to W.E.B. DuBois, if I may paraphrase, everything in America rips us in two (his famous “twoness” experienced by the American Negro), so it is not surprising that you, like most of us, feel divided regarding “Judge not…”

For one thing, just for starters, the words come out of the current English translation of the Bible, which raises enough questions on its own even before one translation led to another (like the game of “telephone” at a party, where each repetition brings about some change, and that’s using the same language!)

An elder sister/mentor/friend/colleague of mine, many decades ago, shared the concept that for us to survive in this society, we have to “Reverse everything” that our self-declared enemies say.  If they say something is hot, it’s cold.  If they say it’s bad, it’s good.  Etc., etc.  I questioned the “everything” part of that, but she said, yes, absolutely everything.  As you see, I’ve never forgotten it because I have applied it so many times and gotten clarity from doing so.

That’s why I reject the whole “racial” paradigm that this society is built on because it is a contrivance that serves “them,” not us.  There is a HUMAN race, and we go from there.  At the same time, because we live amongst pathological criminals who consider our skin color to be a military uniform in a war that they have declared, I have no illusions as to how relevant that myth of “race” is to my survival.

And so it goes: The Twoness.

Regarding “Judge not…” my whole interpretation of that comes from reversing “their” ideology and tapping into our wisdom.  Long, long before these people invaded our lives, we had the wisdom of knowing to “hate the deed, not the doer,” or, in this case, to judge the deed, not the doer.  “Judge not,” to me refers to not making judgments like labeling or demonizing individuals or groups of people, because nobody is permanently good or bad or anything else.  We can start with ourselves for ready proof of that simple truth.  However, we do not deny the existence of deeds and actions that can be downright demonic and evil, causing destruction, pain, suffering, misery, divisiveness, confusion, and all the rest.

By not buying into the labels and convenient divisive categories of PEOPLE that our adversaries would want us to use, we are liberated from the deception and focused on what is real.  Individuals, including ourselves, are held accountable second by second for our actions.  No easy way out by thinking that belong to this or that group automatically makes us good or bad.  A lot more challenging proposition, more demanding, and more in tune with life and therefore more rewarding.

Not easy.  We rely on the wisdom of elders, like the old man in Alabama who said that one way to know the difference is to try not to do anything we are ashamed of while we are doing it.  Another friend offers the notion that “in life we are always confronted with two choices, and the more difficult of the two is ALWAYS the correct one.”

The list goes on and I have probably shared a few of those gems with you in the past, along with those notions about not knowing what trauma or emergency causes the driver next to us to be driving crazy, or what preoccupation made someone not return our greeting that morning, and so forth.

I find the traditional knowledge systems — African, other Native — to be reliable sources to help us negotiate the “twoness” thing on our terms.  When we learn from those traditions that there isn’t even any such thing as “us” or “them,” we are even more liberated from the madness — which is comprised of human actions, not necessarily tied to any particular human except at the time they are happening, and even less to any artificially contrived group.

I heard that the Human Genome Project showed the closest relationship between any two groups of people identified by their DNA was between Finnish Lapplanders and Australian Aborigines.  Go figger.  Even more to the point, 98.2% of human DNA is absolutely identical, so ALL of our perceptible differences are accounted for by 1.8% of who we are genetically.

WE are the ones who have to lead the march back to sanity.

See the poem below by Abby Lincoln.

Thanks for the Jordan Maxwell video.  Very interesting and informative.  Following his own advice, there’s quite a bit to question there, but he is one of many who are on the track of awakening us to think more and fear less.  No surprise that he is a friend and disciple of Dick Gregory.

Peace & Blessings,


Where are the Afrikan Gods?

jc-abbeyBy Abbey Lincoln

Where are the Afrikan Gods?
Did they leave us on our journey over here?
Will we know them,
When they “suddenly” appear?
The ones “dismissed with
“rock and roll”
“all that jazz”
“jungle” mumbo jumbo and
“razz ma tazz”

Where are the Afrikan Gods
Who will save us
From This

Where are the Afrikan Gods
Will we find them
When we “pray”
“In jesus name?”

Where are the Afrikan Gods
Who Lived and
Set Us Free

WE are the Afrikan Gods
You Know
YOU and ME

I am in the process of being what I AM.

Perfection is in every second of my being.

It is a perspective that I have about myself.

Outward critique bears no weight upon who I AM.
