    Dreadlocks & Afro Controversy

    in Entertainment

    Why is there still such a huge controversy & discrimination against afros & dreadlocks? What's the big threat about those particular hairstyles? Did you know it was an European man who created "perms" for Africans to make their hair straight like European women & men? Certain people's hair textures aren't a choice at birth. Why do society discrminate so much against what's natural for certain nationalities or race of people, but they are quick to want to steal their ideas & concepts to capitalize on them without giving them proper credit, acknowledgment nor compensation? Tune in to hear what we have to say about this matter. Feel free to follow us on Twitter & Instagram @zhemagazine and join us on Facebook @ZHEMAGAZINEPAGE. Our website is www.zhemagazine.com.

    Sammy Watkins' best comparable dreadlocks

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 125: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion recommends trading Jarvis Landry. 


    PlayerProfiler's Best Comparable Player is based on the iteration of that player's athleticism when he entered the NFL. 


    Dwayne Bowe actually had great size-adjusted speed and agility when entering the league.


    Just because they both had dreadlocks, doesn't mean Sammy Watkins and Julio Jones are comparable. 


    Pierre Garcon is an extremely close comparable to Tre McBride.

    Chronicles of the Revolutionary Nerd 1

    in Pop Culture

    A discussion with Andre Batts about the changing complexions in Comics, Sci Fi and the New trend known as Afrofuturism and His own Brand Urban Style Comics which features his characters Dreadlocks, Lucas a.d.2166,BlackWatch and Mizraiim.


    Andre L. Batts born May 4, 1966, grew up on the west side of Detroit. Andre had a close knit family with his Mom, Dad, Brother and his many Cousins and of course Aunts and Uncles. They were all like Brothers and Sisters, but there was one difference, Andre was the only one that had a love for comic books. Growing up during the 70’s other kids would say to him, Man why are you always reading comic books. Andre had a love for comic books such as Dr. Strange, the X-men and the Avengers. He was a self taught artist, who learned to draw by looking at the images that were in the comics that he had been reading. Through time Andre stopped drawing due to becoming a teenager and discovering girls, at this time period Andre still occasionally picked up comics that he generally read as a child. He no longer bought his comics at the neighborhood store, but now Andre had to buy his comics at comic book specialty shops outside the urban Detroit area. It seemed to Andre that they were trying to keep African Americasn from having access to these comics, unless they had the means to go into the suburbs. STAY TUNED!!!!!
