Big #shoutout to @ephsykes for the support! Rarely do I get to post people in the #snapbacks. They are rather hard to spot but this one jumped off my timeline. .
From the description: (WARNING: #realtalk ahead)
“Negus is a royal title in the Ethiopian Semitic languages. The word negus is a noun derived from the South Semitic (Ge'ez) root N-G -Ś (Negus Ge'ez.png) meaning "to reign." The hat is inspired by the scene in #DjangoUnchained when Dr. King Schultz was seeking a "fighting nigger"

Calvin Candie: Where I part company from many of my phrenologist colleagues is I believe there is a level above bright, above talented, above loyal that a nigger can aspire to. Say, one nigger that just pops up in ten thousand, the exceptional nigger.”

“CNSTRCTD” as a title owes it’s inspiration for it’s vowel-less name to the Hebrew Language and one of the ways they would refer to the name of their God “YHWH”. I have always felt that the “construction” of us was actually the “Building” of us. The elevation of us. We are gods and goddesses.

(I say that in my @angelarye voice)
4 years ago Mike Brown was murdered. His killer made over a half million dollars in DONATIONS to “support” him and his new family.
.
“An anonymous woman who reportedly started three pro-Darren Wilson Facebook pages — "We Are Darren Wilson," "I Support Officer Wilson" and "Support Darren Wilson" — told The Daily Mail that her backers have raised around $500,000 for the former police officer. However, this number was just a "conservative" estimate, she said. She added that when all is said and done, that number may easily jump into the seven figures.”
.
This makes me sick to my stomach now as much as it did then.

Today marks the amount of time Black women have to work into 2018 from 2017—A whole 7 extra months with often higher education and credentials —to earn what what their white male counterparts made in 2017. Equal pay for equal work. Always. This is an extension of the racist practice of redlining and freezing black families out homeownership, not enabling black families to build wealth and create financial legacies...#BlackWomensEqualPayDay

This kid grew up fast on me! .
When I first moved to Bed-Stuy 10 years ago, Maliq was a little kid hanging in his pops (@markaj35 ) barbershop. (The legendary Headhunters on Bedford and Lexington)

Bonus! Keep a look out for Maliq in Episode 8 of Power...ohhhh boy .
Bonus Bonus!: I was developing a capsule called “The Injustice League” that was to be part of my second collection but I couldn’t source a shirt with quality enough. Here are some grabs. It may still happen.

Big #shoutout to @allison.1drlnd (I just got your handle btw) for this amazing comment. I saw this on a post by @girlpowersupply and I was like “yep. Yep. That too.

This is heartbreaking. I hate to say we have come to expect this. The war against black and brown bodies has been renewed with sign off from the top. .
From @the.root:
“‪ Letifah Wilson, 26, who was also stabbed in the neck but survived the assault, described Cowell’s demeanor immediately following the attack to ABC 7 News. “I looked back, and he was wiping off his knife and stood at the stairs and just looked — and from there on, I was just caring for my sister. I was in shock. ... I didn’t know I was cut because I was paying more attention to my sister. But he just stood there, like it was nothing.”.
.
As the Washington Post reports, the Wilson sisters didn’t normally ride the BART train, but opted to take it that night on the way home from a family gathering.

Wilson’s mother, Alicia Grayson, told the East Bay Times that Nia didn’t like the BART. “She was scared of the BART,” Grayson said through tears. “Now I see why.”

The end of #truth. I posted this right around #election2016. This word was not being used a lot then. I don’t think we have ever been done this way so blatantly before. Big #shoutout to #sister @angelarye always giving #facts on @cnn about the #stateofthings.
.
From Wikipedia: #Sociopaths and #narcissists frequently use gaslighting tactics. Sociopaths consistently transgress social mores, break laws, and exploit others, but typically are also convincing liars, sometimes charming ones, who consistently deny wrongdoing. Thus, some who have been victimized by sociopaths may doubt their own perceptions. Some physically abusive spouses may #gaslight their partners by flatly denying that they have been violent.

Rounding out my @diangelorobin block, I wanted to hit you with this one. This is the first article I referenced at the start of this block. I came across this in the conceptualizing stages of Black On Black. It has always stuck with me.
.
This is a excerpt from the back cover her book-
What Does It Mean to Be White?: Developing White Racial Literacy: "What does it mean to be white in a society that proclaims race meaningless yet is deeply divided by race? In the face of pervasive racial inequality and segregation, most whites cannot answer that question. Robin DiAngelo argues that a number of factors make this question difficult for whites miseducation about what racism is; ideologies such as individualism and colorblindness; defensiveness; and a need to protect (rather than expand) our worldviews. These factors contribute to what she terms white racial illiteracy. Speaking as a white person to other white people, Dr. DiAngelo clearly and compellingly takes readers through an analysis of white socialization. She describes how race shapes the lives of white people, explains what makes racism so hard for whites to see, identifies common white racial patterns, and speaks back to popular white narratives that work to deny racism. Written as an accessible introduction to white identity from an anti-racist framework, What Does It Mean To Be White? is an invaluable resource for members of diversity and anti-racism programs and study groups and students of sociology, psychology, education, and other disciplines.”

.
Why don't we as a nation designate “Juneteenth” as a NATIONAL HOLIDAY? It is THE day ALL people of America was liberated. Is it because by doing so it forces the nation to confront its horrible past?
.
45 of the 50 US. states and the District of Columbia already have recognized Juneteenth as either a state holiday or ceremonial holiday, a day of observance. States that do not recognize it are Hawaii, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation - which had become official January 1, 1863.
.
Later attempts to explain this two and a half year delay in the receipt of this important news have yielded several versions that have been handed down through the years.
One of General Granger’s first orders of business was to read to the people of Texas, General Order Number 3 which began most significantly with:
"The people of Texas are informed that in accordance with a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and free laborer.”

Full Disclosure: As I writing this post I did a quick fact check and the more accurate number is 53% of white women voted 45 into office. I stand corrected.
.
I have been thinking about this statistic a long time. Especially when I keep hearing “This is not the America I know. This is not who we are.” .
Voting records begs to differ.
.
By Julie Kohler
"To understand the “white woman story,” we must first acknowledge that white supremacy remains the prevailing force in electoral politics—that, as @mhpshow - Melissa Harris-Perry noted, “there is a race [voting] gap of enormous proportions and a gender gap of very slim margins in this country…. gender politics is a secondary game, not the main show.” Data consistently support this statement; the race gap between black and white voters in modern elections runs 40–50+ points, whereas the gender gap runs about 10. That said, white women are not a monolithic voting bloc, and their voting behavior is highly related to the interplay of several factors: heterosexual marriage, education, and religion. There was a 20-point gap in support for Hillary Clinton between college-educated (56 percent) and non-college-educated (36 percent) white women in 2016.”
.
UPDATE: Slide labeled 2 is actually the last slide of the group. 😬 .

I concur wholeheartedly with @luvvie and her sentiment. I heard the audio of the kids crying for their parents. My girls call me “papa”. Those voices sounded a lot like my girls and it was heartbreaking and sickening. But WE know that this country has always been capable of these actions. .
And don’t let this administration tell you it’s been done before...

This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and free laborer.”

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of #slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the #Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now #free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation - which had become official January 1, 1863.
Later attempts to explain this two and a half year delay in the receipt of this important news have yielded several versions that have been handed down through the years.

Did ya’ll see that bathroom scene in “The Last O.G.” Season finale? I think it was @cthagod that said she was a national treasure and must be protected at all costs. Truer words have never been spoken. My claim to fame will be “@tiffanyhaddish was once dancing in front of Charlamagne while he was wearing my t-shirt”. .

The gaslight is real ya’ll. It’s so blatant as well.
From Wikipedia:
Etymology - The term originates in the systematic psychological manipulation by the main character of a victim in the 1938 stage play Gas Light, known as Angel Street in the United States, and the film adaptations released in 1940 and 1944. In the story, a husband attempts to convince his wife and others that she is insane by manipulating small elements of their environment and insisting that she is mistaken, remembering things incorrectly, or delusional when she points out these changes. The original title stems from the dimming of the gas lights in the house that happened when the husband was using the gas lights in the attic while searching for hidden treasure. The wife accurately notices the dimming lights and discusses the phenomenon, but the husband insists she just imagined a change in the level of illumination.
.
The term "gaslighting" has been used colloquially since the 1960s to describe efforts to manipulate someone's sense of reality. In a 1980 book on child sexual abuse, Florence Rush summarized George Cukor's 1944 film version of Gas Light, and writes, "even today the word [gaslighting] is used to describe an attempt to destroy another's perception of reality."
.
Sociopaths and narcissists frequently use gaslighting tactics. SOCIOPATHS CONSISTENTLY TRANSGRESS SOCIAL MORES, BREAK LAWS, AND EXPLOIT OTHERS, BUT TYPICALLY ARE ALSO CONVINCING LIARS, SOMETIMES CHARMING ONES, WHO CONSISTENTLY DENY WRONGDOING.
Thus, some who have been victimized by sociopaths may doubt their own perceptions. Some physically abusive spouses may gaslight their partners by flatly denying that they have been violent.

From USA TODAY:
“Here is a list of the 6 of the other 19 shootings at schools this year resulting in deaths: (The list of the other 13 was too long for Instagram)
March 20: Lexington Park, Md. - Austin Wyatt Rollins, 17, opened fire at Great Mills High School — about 65 miles south of Washington, D.C. — shooting two students before an armed school resources officer intervened. Rollins was killed and one of his victims, Jaelynn Willey, 16, was later taken off life support. .
March 7: Birmingham, Ala. - A female student, 17, was killed when a 17-year-old student shot her in a Huffman High School classroom in what appeared to be an accidental shooting. The suspect, who shot himself in the leg while trying to leave the scene, was charged with manslaughter. .
March 2: Mount Pleasant, Mich. Police said James Eric Davis Jr., 19, fatally shot his parents at a Central Michigan University dorm. .
Feb. 24: Savannah, Ga. - A man was shot multiple times on the Savannah State University campus and later died from his injuries. Neither the suspect nor victim was a student at the university, officials said. .
Feb. 14: Parkland, Fla. - Nikolas Cruz, 19, killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., with an AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle. .
Jan. 23: Benton, Ky. - Two students were killed at rural Marshall County High School when a 15-year-old opened fire, injuring more than a dozen other students. The suspect was charged with two counts of murder and a dozen assault charges.

I have always felt that #blacklivesmatter didn't have a symbol and I understand the power of symbology as a designer.

So I decided to create one. This is a visual symbol that states the following: "We built this nation. With our hands. With our spirits. With our culture. With our creativity. With our ideas. On our backs. We are embedded into the fabric of this nation. You can't get rid of us. America can't define itself without including us."

The colors of the Pan-African flag are used to articulate that black people just want liberation and justice in this country and the world just like every other American and human being.

Why don't we as a nation designate “Juneteenth” as a NATIONAL HOLIDAY? It is THE day ALL people of America was liberated. Is it because by doing so it forces the nation to confront its horrible past?
.
45 of the 50 US. states and the District of Columbia already have recognized Juneteenth as either a state holiday or ceremonial holiday, a day of observance. States that do not recognize it are Hawaii, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

I was scrolling my feed a little while ago and I came across a post by @majtoure. I clearly understood what he was trying to say with his straightforward statement - “It’s OPEN SEASON on masculine men.” In my opinion statements like that simply lack a lot of nuance that I believe this discussion needs. I was having a long discussion with a developer of a mentorship program about this very topic last Sunday. These are my top line thoughts on one area of nuance that is missing.
.
By no means is this me coming at @majtoure - just putting a little meat on the bones of an idea and adding a varied perspective.

I am so proud of @suiteladyoro and the team of @offiicialmuterkelly for starting the #muterkelly movement. Like Oronike, I have always heard the stories. I read the articles as well. There were countless attempts to do something about this problem in #chicago by many investigators. Then he took his show on the road to Atlanta. .
Big #shoutout to @timesupnow #woc for supporting and amplifying this problem.

#welldone ladies for staying with this and making sure the cries of the many scarred black girls and women are NOT MUTED. .
