I was featured on free-think-her.com !! I’m honored. Many people talk a good game on social media but their movements don’t match the rhetoric. It’s important we promote & support people doing positive things and the @freethinkmvmt is definitely championing all things pro-woman and POC. Be sure to check it out, follow, visit their website and Check out my feature at free-think-her.com #freethinkHER #freethinkmovement #dopewomeninspire #sisterhood #afrocenchick #ypoc #locloveliveshere #youngpeopleofcolorinc

We can’t control what happens to us but we can damn sure control how we handle it and whether or not we are part of the problems or the solutions in our own lives. Be proactive in all your affairs, personal, professional and spiritual. You only have one life to live. Be sure it counts!

Sending so much love and light to @byp100 for their latest endeavor #TheAgendaToKeepUsSafe which serves as a comprehensive manifesto geared toward helping law enforcement, policy makers, activists & everyday folks aware of how they can not only hold law enforcement accountable, but be accountable in a more substantial way than being a body in a sea of protesters or a vote on a ballot. Some of the suggestions made include the creation of civilian led law enforcement monitoring groups, the enforcement of human rights legislation and a mandate to equip all police with body cameras to document civilian interaction. I don’t know about you but I see/hear this and it lets me know we aren’t a lost generation/ people at all. The masses and even a lot of our own simply choose to focus on those of us who have not yet been found. I salute the young people over at #theblackyouthproject #blackyouthproject #byp100 and I want you all to support their movement by following them on social media and checking out their website. This is what should be going viral. Not fight videos. #WeInThisTogether #ChangeYourEnergy #ChangeYourLife #blacklivesmatter #decriminalizeBlack

YPOC Saturday Seminars in full swing starting November 1st in NYC

Young People of Color Incorporated is a grassroots movement founded by education major, step & dance instructor, published model, community activist, writer and mother of two, Tajh Sutton in order to foster empowerment, creativity and critical thinking in youth POC. A 10 lesson curriculum that emphasizes academic readiness as well as the importance of honing creative skills and understanding our place within our communities and the world at large was created in 2012 while Tajh was attending Brooklyn College as an education major with a concentration in English.

The YPOC Saturday seminars will feature workshops on nutrition, fashion, beauty and self esteem, music and singing, step and dance and finance, all through a lens of critical analysis and empowerment. It will be an educational experience that still allows participants the opportunity to be imaginative and free, all the while freeing themselves from the generalizations and restrictions society tries so hard to weigh them down with. Parents are welcome to attend with their children. There are no age restrictions and everyone is welcome. Workshops are FREE to attend. Small fees may apply depending on specific components of individual seminars. Donations are welcome.

So…

Fox News Reporter said… “We must NEVER forget 9/11. We must not say ‘it’s in the past. Let’s get over it.” 

Black Man said… “But we must also remember that planes were used to killed Black people in Tulsa, Oklahoma.”

Reporter said… “what does that got to do with 9/11?”

I just gave up afterwards.

Yah Quanell X held his ground against that dude. Ya’ll see how uncomfortable yts get when they hear the truth. They know it’s right but that cognitive dissonance is a bitch ain’t it?

EDUCATE THEMMMMMMMM!!!!!
