  • The Natural Mentoring Experience-Jenga, derived from Swahili; "to build"

    in Relationships

    Mentoring, to me, means to build. Jenga, is an African word derived from Swahili that means “to build”.   When we share our experiences, knowledge and ideas we are building.  Because many of us are at different levels of experiences and knowledge, and based on our ages, we may need to listen at times and speak at other times during the Jenga.   So we may learn from each other regardless of any obstacles.  This is very promising, as well as very important.  For Black people in America, it is imperative we engage in the building dialog process with each other, in order to break the spell of white racist supremacy cast on us since our ancestors were brought here to America and put in slavery.  Here in America, people of color and Black people, in particular, have been victims of  unethical,  physical and mental injustices and death on a daily basis which still persist since the days of slavery, and left many of us with no hope of ever regaining our true identities of a proud Black people, with a proud Black Heritage from Africa.  Please join Bro Jesse, that's me, each Thursday at 6:00 PM/EST or 5:00 PM/CST, by calling 1-914-803-4571, at The Initiative Radio Network, where we can build bridges together as Black people and educate our children in an effort to save their lives as well as our own and demand justice for our people.

    Ochlocratic Report - Ochlocratic Review

    in Religion

    Isaiah 45:1 Thus saith the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;

    2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:

    3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

    4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.

    5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

    6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

    7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I theLord do all these things.

    8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.

    9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?

    Join the Hot Mess Express as they break down an ugly Packers win. Aaron Rodgers had a rough day - which some quarterbacks would give their left nut for. Rollins is boss, with a pick-6 and another regular pick (almost as good as a pick-6 but not quite). Clay Matthews terrorized the Rams offense - especially the quarterback - for the whole day. And the Packers are 5-0, but we still aren't saying the S word, and we never will because JINX! Join us.
