16 May What does Mel Jackson think about politics?

"We have to stop looking for white saviors."

 Dr. Umar Johnson
By this blog, you probably have an inkling as to where I stand when it comes to race and politics. Dr. Umar Johnson does an amazing job further expressing my opinion on this issue. I don't trust our government. This country was built on oppression and those who are in power have done a lot to sustain our role as minorities.

Purchasing power is a license to purchase power.

Raoul Vaneigem

Last year was a very exciting year for Black Americans and minorities, in general. It was a year of struggle and triumph, a year to evaluate the lack of diversity, and a year of open dialogue on how we can change our underprivileged circumstances. Minorities are more popular and more influential than they’ve ever been. Something in the air smells like change and we’re very confident that we will see this change in 2016.

29 Mar Beyond Black History Month

Cheering for diversity

Black History Month is a great symbol of race relations in this country. For centuries, we've always had to belittle our experiences for the sake of Caucasian comfort.

  • We ignore racism because we don't want whites to feel guilty for what they did to our people. 
  • We deny our culture and assimilate to satisfy the white standard of how one should act.
  • We allow ignorance and generalizations so that we don't offend their ignorant perspectives.

29 Mar Keys to Success: Reading for Pleasure

 

Malcolm X

One of the most influential books that I've ever had the pleasure to read is the The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley.  While, I appreciate Spike Lee for his incredible interpretation of the life of Malcolm X, it was this book that brought his story full circle. It has to be one of the top  non-fiction stories of our time, describing the complexities of a man who had to discover his activism.  The media tries to portray him as a deviant who was angry and filled with violence but through this book, you learn about how he grew and learned from his experiences. Prior to his death, he was extremely enlightened. I learned from this book as soon as I opened the first chapter and am indebted to it's knowledge and historical importance. 

It's interesting because everyone wants to know the key's to success. This book was my first key. It's unlike what everybody else considers success because it's not based on material but the success of the mind and self empowerment. In fact, my keys offer self awareness and fulfillment in life, two things that can create a sturdy foundation and enough confidence to be successful both financially and mentally.

If you want to ride with me on this success train than join me in the path that we can create together. Read below and unlock your first key.
