LEGENDARY | D’Angelo Shocks The World With The NUMBER ONE Album In 40mins #BlackMessiah Trending @TheDangelo LOOK:


10801482_808384622554807_7277683512156175632_nWHAT A BREATH OF FRESH AIR! D’Angelo is back! For years the world has been waiting to hear new music from the King of Neo-soul. In 2012 he made his long awaited televised debut on B.E.T and millions tuned in as he blessed us with the song “Sugah Daddy” blowing everyone away!

Days before the release of “Black Messiah” he released the mp3 version; “Sugah Daddy” and Broke The Internet, as they say. Now, in less than 40mins of release, yes, at 12:40am today, “Black Messiah” climbed to the number one spot on the R&B charts!! (Now beating out Nicki Minaj for the number one spot ALL ALBUMS not just R&B that’s already two number ones for the King) Still trending since before 12am today, D’Angelo is proving, no matter how long you stay away, regroup, and grow, good music will carry you, and your fans will wait to hear from you. And he did not disappoint! 6

The album is absolutely amazing! It is a heavy instrumental based album. I am not surprised by that as D’angelo is a multi-instrumentalist, and handles a guitar with so much smoothness you’d think he was singing through the strings! The album is a movement, a piece, not just music, but a message, everything we can expect from D’Angelo. It is the kind of album you get LOST IN!

GRAMMYS: The 2015 Grammy Nominations ARE IN! @TheGrammys See WHO’S NOMINATED LOOK:



grammy          It looks like the 2015 Grammy Awards are piping up to be something magnificent! With surprising, yet well deserving nominations from veterans like Ledisi, Toni Braxton & BabyFace and Erica Campbell, and new comers like the talented Luke James, Aloe Blacc, and Lecrae hopefully this coming Grammys represents true talent. Last years disappointing show resulted in many top categories, that featured mostly Afrikan Americans, not being televised. And there was an obvious lack of…colour that hit the stage to perform. Hopefully that tragedy will change this year! It seems like this will be the year for veteran rapper/producer Pharrell Williams with multiple nominations, surely he will win at least…two! Ha! I’m excited, aren’t you? Let me know if you agree with the predictions below,

Happy ThanksGiving? | National Day Of Mourning The Truth About Thanksgiving And The Indigenous People Of America


         Preseason your turkeys, marinade your chicken and wash those collard greens well, for it’s thanksgiving! Settle at your beautifully decorated kitchen table topped with colorful placemats and shiny silverware, look to your left at your glowing grandmother, the matriarch of the family sitting beautifully underneath the warm light of the glistening chandelier. Now, turn to your right and look deep into the past of small pox, murder, enslavement, and forced cultural redefining of the Indigenous people of America. Ahh, this is what Thanksgiving is all about!

thanksgiving

It’s simple. We’ve been lied to. Hopefully I can break it down to you to help you understand the truth the lies, and why you shouldn’t feel guilty for celebrating Thanksgiving.


1. Myth: Thanksgiving is portrayed in the History books, in films, commercials, and through conversation as if the very first thanksgiving was the same as today. Often times people dress up as Pilgrims and “Indians” on thanksgiving and show a loving relationship between the two over a nice turkey with loads of sweet foods, drinks, laughter, and warmth.

     The Truth: There were years of countless battle between the Indigenous people and the European settlers. Many Indigenous people were already dead and gone by the time the settlers came due to the wide spread disease. It’s reported that about 90 percent of the Indigenous population were killed because of this, however there were still millions of them alive and well enough for the greedy European settlers to enslave, sell and murder. The foods most certainly weren’t the same. So all your cakes and pies turkeys and hams, try some fish and rain water and see if your thanksgiving is as happy.


2. Myth: Christopher Columbus discovered America

     The Truth: Have several seats Chris and who ever made that lie up! How in God’s name can you discover some shit that was already full of people!? That’s like me going to NYC Times square and shouting; “I hear by claim this land DISCOVERED!!!” Yea right, they’d probably lock my coloured ass up, or worse shoot me and leave me for dead in the middle of Times Square for four hours. It’s said that the Vikings “discovered” America having traveled there and received a thorough ass kicking by the Indigenous people who basically said; “Da fug? *grabs bow and arrow*”. Simply put the Indigenous people discovered America. What’s most interesting is that the European settlers had no idea of how to survive and the Indigenous people taught them to hunt, fish, grow and crop, and what poisons to stay away from…and then they killed them off and claimed the land. #iCant

3. Myth: Indians are Native Americans Are Indians Are Indigenous People Of America Are American Indians are Natives….

     The Truth: If you’re confused reading myth 3, you should be! Let me break this bullshit down to you. Christopher Columbus sailed across the ocean. As the kid-song goes “…the waves grew higher, and higher and over…1 2 3 independence…” As ignorant as this kid-song is, its widely excepted that Christopher happened upon America after a hard sail through the ocean. When it’s more likely that Christopher had an easy sail. Chris landed on what he thought was India, saw the Indigenous people there and called them Indians. Now how the hell can you land somewhere and just call muthafuckas whatever name you want? That’s like me going to the City Hall of Newark NJ to change the name of  Mayor Ras Baraka to D’s nuts. No shade, but that would be ridiculous no?! And for years after his retirement and death everyone would know him as the great mayor of Newark NJ D’s Nuts! So, when thinking of an Indigenous person or commonly known as Native American vs an Indian person, here’s a little help:


Indigenous – originating or occurring naturally in a particular place; native.

Native – a person born in a specified place or associated with a place by birth, whether subsequently resident there or not.


FACT: IN THE IMAGE BELOW ON THE LEFT IS A BEAUTIFUL INDIAN MAN FROM INDIA. IN THE IMAGE BELOW ON THE RIGHT IS A BEAUTIFUL INDIGENOUS MAN NATIVE OF AMERICA.

IndianMan               NativeAmericanMan


To help you understand demographic and how disrespectful it is to call an Indigenous person an Indian look at how far away on the map these two origins are.

difference

Native Americans are derived from the founders of America the Indigenous people (who are coloured people by the way often dipicted as white, just another white lie!) America is highlighted yellow above. Indians are from India highlighted Red in the picture above. So, Indians are not Native Americans they don’t have the same culture, food, style of dressing, maybe even ideals. Even though older Native Americans still consider themselves American Indian the truth is they’re not, but hey it’s American history for a white man to set a precedent that we blindly follow without question why else do we often consider ourselves black? I hope you think twice the next time you decide to dress up on Halloween  with your feathered hat strapped with a bow and arrow hopping around patting your mouth calling yourself an INDIAN! When you should really have a dot in the middle of your head draped in beautiful garment.

       I truly do hope this has cleared up some confusion. But I urge you, don’t feel guilty, much like the oppression of the Afrikan people in America we now celebrate and give thanks to those who’ve died for us, particularly around February, but often everyday from most. Thanksgiving is a time for celebration, even then, however it wasn’t all happy. So, instead of simply giving thanks to why you are here with your family, give thanks to those Indigenous people who fought, taught, and help raise this country to be what it is today. If you want to find out more on how American schools systems have lied to us simply visit the sites below and read until your breath stank! Ha!

#Ferguson #MichaelBrown | Ferguson Grand Jury Announces Decision On Michael Brown’ Shooting And We Have The Verdict HERE:


MichaelBrownMichael Brown was murdered August 9th 2014 by a white cop and left dead in the middle of the street. It sent an outrage through the United States.


Ferguson, Missouri went through a terrible downfall as many people in rage over Michael’s murder looted, and destroyed Ferguson to make a point to the government and the people of the United States that killing our youth, killing our race is NOT ok. Many disagreed about this approach thus many anti-violence marches, and protest commenced and still many were shot, gassed, and abused by white cops in Ferguson. Read More…


Tonight the verdict is in, After a long drawn out speech NBC NEWS reported LIVE and the decision is made. The white cop that murdered Michael Brown for no other reason than racial profiling and stereotyping….NO INDICTMENT! BASICALLY A WHITE COP GOT AWAY SHOOTING AND KILLING A BROWN BOY LEFT DEAD FOR HOURS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET.

They found no probable cause to convict the white cop that shot Michael Brown. Other than the fact that he was unarmed and running for his life…hunted is more like it. This is crazy!

What’s sad is either way millions are tuned in and somewhere some white man or woman is laughing collecting money from the ratings….#icantdeal 


Many took precautionary measures to make sure their businesses do not get destroyed based on this verdict. Many believed the looting and destroying of the city had no effect, but clearly it did! If it didn’t there would be no precaution, no consideration, but it was, and will continue to be because of the looting and destruction of Ferguson. Hopefully this change wakes America up! Everyone needs to wake up and understand that race is still a serious issue in this Country and this unfortunate event is just one of too many examples of that fact.

The fact that a white supremacy group taunted, and protested against the Afrikan American peaceful protesters for Michael Brown is a huge example of what needs to end! The fact that white supremacy groups are even still allowed in America is a huge issue, one that must be tackled. I could go on and on about the disrespect, the degradation, and the murder of my people, but I’ll leave you with this. Be encouraged, let this event and many like it uplift your spirit to do the RIGHT THING and help each other become a more peaceful place. It can happen. We can do it! #UNITY
