SORT BY Relevancy
There is a glaring narrative that continues to worsen; Intentional Misrepresentation across both social & mainstream media at large, the ongoing & self destructive ‘Gender War’ within the ruins of the Black Community, economic atrophy, the collateral damage created by Sexual Irresponsibility, external & internal negative influences, Mental Internment Camps renown as the Hall of ‘Higher Learning’ and so on...
Therein remains a legion of questions and unedited discussions that demand to be addressed in the 1st of an ongoing series. Especially with the season of Summer set upon us. What good is a people that remains overtly ignorant of their history nor the will to embrace it nor improve upon it via their own & unified merits? What is the importance of an established mindsets to create & preserve earned legacies versus the hallow claim of self professed ‘regal status?’ What is the importance of creating, sustaining, protecting and solidifying the most powerful keystone which is the Family Unit? The necessity of Self Esteem? Self Worth? Knowledge of Self?
Naturally, there will be those whom will fear the gathering of both the Awakened & those undecided upon dismissing or content with hitting the proverbial ‘Snooze Button’. However, this discussion needs to be had and WILL be revisited as it is necessary. Join us as the Platinum Queens West Family gather around for another one...Feel free to call in (347) 884-8239 3Pm PST/6pm EST
For a long time, I thought that race was just a euphemism for the class issues we face, which I still believe to some extent. However, race has morphed into an animal all it’s own. As one of my friends stated while watching this, “whether you rich or poor, you are still a n–ga.” That really struck a chord with me, because for all the struggle and progress, trials and tribulations we face, it is still in the back of your mind.
Another thing that struck me, is the variety we have in our immediate families. One family had a lawyer, a barber and a college student in the same house. And one still found a way to get arrested and put on probation, when his brother was a DA. That is how quick the tables turn for a black man, no matter where you from. I think this is something that you will only find in the households of people of color.
Inevitably, my thoughts began to wonder to the “Black Flight” phenomenon. I began to wonder if other “blacks” or “the ills of the ghetto” (dunh-dunh-dunh) chased middle class blacks away. If people are shooting around my house, and I have a family, I would probably move. It is an unnecessary distraction. I work too hard to provide for my family to put them in harm’s way in order to “keep it real.”

"What do you want to eat?" It's a loaded question in Prince George's County where 70% of the restaurants are fast food. National Harbor, various town centers, and some stand alone restaurants offer promise but, in the meantime, how does a resident eat authentic? Where do you go for dining when you just don't feel like driving into DC? What does the county have to offer and what would you like to see here? Let's talk about it Tuesday night at 7:30pm. Ceemac of PGC Blog, Kent S. Digby, Vice President, National Harbor Operations, Quianne Perrin of FLYCANDY Communications Agency and Taste of Prince George's, and Tonia Wellons, founder and managing director of Prince George's County Social Innovation Fund bring you information and invite you to join in a discussion on dining options in the county.

This week, the Black Geeks review "The Rover" directed by Aussie auteur David Michod. "The Rover" is the story of one unnamed man's desperate attempt to track his stolen car through the Australian outback in a dystopian near future. Along the way, the man, played by a terrifying Guy Pearce, meets a disparate assemblage of unsettling characters all just as desperate as him. His relationship with Rey, an almost unrecognizable Robert Pattinson, begins as a hostile alliance and develops into something much more. The film culminates in a surprising and touching end. This is not George Miller territory though the comparisons seem unavoidable. Tune in to find out if you need to see this movie in the theatres RIGHT NOW, or if you can just pop in your copy of Mad Max and call it a night.
