    BLACK OR AFRICAN AMERICAN

    in Current Events

    IN Observance Of Black History Month "LET'S TALK BLACK!"


    A Series on why WE SHOULD BE CALLED “BLACK” AFRICAN AMERICANS, “BLACK” HEBREWS, “BLACK” CHRISTIANS, “BLACK” MUSLIMS, “BLACK” MASONS, “BLACK” MOORS, ETC., KEEP IT “BLACK!!!!!


    In order to enslave us the slave master first destroyed our knowledge of ourselves, he changed our names, destroyed our religion, Our religion was “One” with nature and “One” with things that are natural to us, and he gave us his names and his religions.  He even changed our language to his.  When you take away one’s language you take away one’s history!  Next he divided us into opposing camps by arming us with false knowledge.  Then an incident was provided that would cause us to fight and weaken ourselves.


    We have always been lead to think that we are not who we are until we get an approval on paper from our oppressor.  “YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE!" So Join us for a journey “Black” to the future!

    in History

    Hello Every One Thanks for Listening!


     It's been extremely busy and crazy as we all have "grinded" through the month of January 2016, and I ask myself: "did we just celebrate Christmas and New Year of 2015!"  Now here we go again- lather, wash, and rinse.  And ofcourse, we are celebrating and honoring Black History Month.  I don't know about ya'll, but I feel like I'm in the Twi-lite Zone! 


    I encourage you to join me as I share with you some Great History, Fun Facts and Trivias for the whole family to enjoy!  Everyone has a "history" and this includes you and I.  Have you ever stopped to think or consider how your life or "history" may have inspired others or how you may have impacted someone elses life in a very profound way?  WOW, many times, I thank GOD for allowing positive and influential "people" to come into my life and help shape me into the Woman I am today.  I believe  all of us have something to contribute to our History and Culture, so let's not forget to Honor and Celebrate those individuals who have "paved" the way and made great contributions and Sacrifices for our Land.  Celebrating Great History is fun...


     


    Yours Truly,


    D'Luv

    Black History who is a Hero / Shero

    in Politics Progressive

    Who do you admire in the history African Women and Man of Earth? 


    I dont know much about Black History so for me this information instills pride in a people.


    Descendants of former African enslaved people needs to know that history to restore that pride. With pride come respect and honor. When you don’t know who you are and where you come will leave you open to except distorted facts about who you are. It is important you know where you can from so you know where you are going.


    Seeking more knowledge reduces the amount of self-hatred within the people the share my features. Stacey Dash recently let black folks know she is with white folks in destroying who she is mainly coz they are paying her.


    For the month of February, in order to bring back True Black Power / True Africa Pride for the Month of February my show will be devoted to Nationhood and our Elders that pushed this message from Marcus Gravy.  We must refine the message for today and still push for Nationhood today!

    The non sequitur nation of African History

    in Radio

    The re-hashing of historical fact oftens conflicts with prevailing notions of rationality, science, or even common sense No where is irony more prevalent than discourse around African history Many scholars take the position the slave trade was a direct result of Western capitalism; thus justifying violent exuberance Recently, other scholars have refuted such claims exclaiming  the reverse is is more palpable In other words, more recent scholars reject the social conventions expressed adnauseam by their peers that capitalism served as catalyst for the U.S enslavement of Afrikan people.Thses scholars take the position slavery created the impetus for Western capitalism Amassing great wealth for themselves, Western leaders' motivations were inspired not by the pursuit of materialism but the pursuit of power of power which precludes capitalism ethics that is- the pursuit of wealth Clearly, wealth opportunity abound within the borders of Europe but Western excursions took place outside the boundaries of Europe. Copious amount of wealth needed to venture into foreign lands was not only risky but cost ineffective This begs the question: If capitalism is really about maximizing profits, what motivation would justify transgressions in a foreign land where the variables are unknown More importantly, any success would be fraught with danger and the human cost astronomical Is the motivation money or is there a deeper motivation? What do you think?
