“'Money is Power' is probably the biggest thing that we are doing wrong right now, worshiping people just because they make a lot of money. You have cats, rappers included, who run for photo ops with Warren Buffett while Maya Angelou was alive and never ran for that photo op. 
Like when Jay [Jay-Z] said, “I couldn’t help the poor if I was one of them.” Thank God Harriet Tubman didn’t think that way. Thank God Sojourner Truth didn’t think that way,Malcolm didn’t think that way, Martin Luther King didn’t think that way, Assata Shakur didn’t think that way.”

It’s only been a week. I’m ahead in my classes. But I kinda already miss having lots of idle time on my hands. And day time television.

the connections between the african american big band era and the cuban orchestra era are not explored as fully as they should be either …how shit kept getting carried back and forth. or why funk and soul ended up so salsa influenced, and salsa, so jazz influenced. 

the ways we have dialogued in the diaspora have been largely erased.

Netflix needs to stop playin and add Black movies section

this overt feminism phase Bey is giving us is a direct result of where the youth is rn

if there weren’t a million and one think pieces, if people weren’t making names for themselves on social media and beyond for their strong views I doubt she’d be doing all this

i’m sure she is and probably always has been a feminist but it’s profitable now and that’s the bottom line

My wife make yo bitch look like precious!
