I didn’t just realize just how much I enjoy writing, especially if it’s about things I believe everyone should know about.
So, here I am, more eager than ever to get writing again after studying people. I have a lot to learn, but I also have a lot to explain, just as I think most of us need to.
It’s true that while we should support our business and communities, before any of that we need to have some serious discussions with each other. What the hell have any of us (including me) been doing while our employment rates get lower, as our wedlock rates stays high, while we suffer high blood pressure, and all while we were under a black president?
It’s clear we haven’t been communicating to each other very well, and that it’s about time we do. Besides, with high standards of living within these western countries declining, along with our 2.2 trillion black dollar, it’s clear that something mentally and spiritually have been going wrong with us, yet we maintained our livelihood (still being detained) somehow. It’s not enough to survive, we must thrive now.
There is a conversation to be had, things to be said that are still being unsaid. It shouldn’t be that way, which is why I’ll continue to blog. I’m feeling better after having prayed and meditating. I recommend yoga to everybody, especially black women; we have some serious Black Girl Magic to tap into, so now you’ll know it’s true.
So, I’ll have some new post coming in within a few weeks!
I wanna talk about our miseducation that’s been happening within our schools with white teachers (but also on our television screen). They haven’t just learn to turn us off so we don’t learn, they’ve also learned how to turn us on so we watch too much TV (including many UNTRUE representations of our people aka angry black women & black thugs). It’s time we start living, instead of watching the world go by, because it’s not helping us survive, just as it’s not helping us thrive as people.
I also plan to make some adjustments, while improving the language within the use of this blog (Swahili, Zulu, anyone?) because it is scary how knowing English, yet not learning our OWN language meant for our native tongues, has got so miseducated! And then ones again, we’re having issues talking and communicating to each other within our community, could it be that not knowing how to speak in our native tongues as african-american could be causing this? Of course it is, Ameriklan would say. It even hinders me to this day. This is also another reason why it’s important that as black Americans we become bilingual or we miss out on the progress that is going on in Africa (OUR motherland), Central America, South America. and even Europe (french is very popular among some African people groups and countries).
Have any other ideas on what I could write about or suggestions for this blog, here’s your opportunity to tell me so in the comments!
Thanks for reading, because I’m going to continue writing for all of you! We all need help, and less hate in our community. Here goes…
In the meantime, I recommend reading: Yurugu by Marimba Ani
