HERSTORY

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.

POWER-LESS

Big bad man, where can you be?
I’m locked inside. It snowed, you see.
I’ve no machine to stop the snow,
So, when it falls, inside I go.

Inside? You mean you run away?
From little flakes, you ran, today?
Oh, yes, I’m strong, all winter long
Until the chill turns into snow.

Then, with a flash, I dive inside.
Imagine how it hurts my pride.
The Stock Exchange can’t see me, now.
Dow Jones would think I am a cow.

But what about the little men
You push all year? What of them?
Shhhhh, don’t you say I ran away
To those I bullied, yesterday.

My big machines and mighty dollar
Make little men jump and holler.
Well, can’t your Diner’s Club card
Stop the sky from snowing hard?

It can’t, you see, because snow is free
And credit cards won’t do the job.
A gun, I’m sure, would stop the stuff
Plug up the sky. Point, shoot and puff.

I tried a gun. Just made it rain
And, then, last year, it snowed, again.
You’ve one more chance to kill that snow.
Use propaganda. That’ll make it go!

Yeah, maybe that would do something.
With no more snow, I could still be king.
Big bad man, I pulled your leg.
You can’t stop snow with words that beg.

I must admit, it is a blow.
Ha! Even you can’t stop the snow.
You’re beat, big man, by tiny flakes
They stop your show with no breaks,
The same way you do little men
With big machines and your money, friend.
Big bad man, snow is just for you
So, you could feel empty-handed, too.

Sam’s Club CEO Under Fire From White Men For Insisting on Diversity

rosalindbrewster-Sams-club-ceo

Rosalind Brewster, President & CEO of Sam’s Club since 2012

America is a corporation based on free enterprise, meaning that anyone, white, black, brown, yellow, or red can start their own business. Blaming others for your failure is nonsensical. Each of us, every human being on Earth has a gift that is uniquely theirs.

It costs less than $100 to incorporate a business in any state in the United States. I’m not sure what it costs in other countries. But the corporate tax per year is $150 before May 1 in the U.S. So for $100 plus $150 per year, you’re in business. Your target market can be anyone or just the people in your particular group. Advertisement is the key to doing business – letting people know you offer a product or service.

The problem is that people do not educate themselves on entrepreneurship. They are lazy and would rather get a J-O-B working to make somebody else (usually white men in business) RICH! The moment you take a job, you have placed a value on your time.

  • If you are not getting paid what you think you are worth, who’s fault is that?
  • If you don’t get the necessary degrees to increase your worth, who’s fault is that?

Stop blaming somebody else for your own shortcomings. Evidently Rosalind Brewster did the work to make herself valuable to Sam’s Club. She’s right about the importance of diversity. But how many women and people of color have done the work she has to be in the position she is in?

Either get an education or start your own business or do both. That is the solution in my opinion.

Racism Is White Supremacy

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.

20151001_165427-1

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!

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.”)

The TV “cameras” are…

The Enemy

Good article. We need change in this country.

The Enemy © 2015

Written By: Arelia Johnson

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.
