SORT BY Relevancy
Yeah so we are doing a social studies unit on our ancestors. We’ve done some version of this for as long as I can remember…more than 15 years? The students are asked to talk to family, interview relatives, make a family tree, and identify one of their countries of origin. (You know…not the U.S.A. unless they are indeed a Native People of this country)
Ok. So, our units are language rich and it’s my job to come up with some of the daily vocabulary. There I was picking words: ancestor, traditions, relationship, immigrant…hmm…immigrant…
So, all of a sudden I am thinking…for the FIRST TIME …because white privilege…SLAVERY.
I have had Black students. None this year, but usually I have a child with ancestry that very very likely includes slavery. And it’s never occurred to me to deal with this. Sigh. Well, there it is. And here we are.
I was debating whether to enter this word into the Google doc all the other teachers at my grade level will access. I was thinking they won’t like it. They will object. They’ll question my judgement. They’ll think it’s inappropriate. I was afraid. This is uncomfortable.
Now, I am of the mind that when something bothers me, it’s time to act. It means I know the right thing to do and I’m afraid.
Right then, one said colleague walks in and we talk. We are much more like-minded. I tell him about it. He affirms its validity. This helps. I decide. I do it. SLAVERY is one of our words. It is right between immigration, emigrate, migration, and refugee. Even if the other teachers might not utilize it, I will. It needs to be discussed outside the context of Black History. This is family history. This is the history of my students. Even if they aren’t Black…

Have you ever sat in church or at a church event and saw people trying to OUT-DO each other? What about preachers trying to OUT-PPREACH one another. What about people trying to OUT-MINISTER to someone? Have we gotten so bold that we OUT-PRAISE, OUT-SHOUT and OUT-DANCE one another? Or worse, having to OUT-GIVE, seeing who can OUT-TITHE who? Why do we do this? Why do we have an attitude of ungratefulness in the church? Why are being ungrateful to God? We have a sense of "smelling ourselves" because we think we have it all together and know everything. God is not pleased with this attitude and He will deal with us accordingly. I don't know about the rest of yall, but I am sick of "one-up" people!

Mariea Antoinette is bringing an entirely unique sound to R&B and contemporary jazz: her soulful harp. Offering a Straight From The Harp:” seduces and sways with refreshingly distinctive sounds placed in a seldom heard context that will change your perception of the ancient stringed instrument. Antoinette partnered with Emmy-winning and two-time Grammy-nominated producer-songwriter Allan Phillips
The exotic mid-tempo original “Fly Away” introduces Antoinette’s thesis that the ethereal harp can bring exciting new sonic dynamics to urban-jazz grooves. Phillips and Antoinette sped up the cadence on “Rock Wit ‘Cha” while adding celebratory harmonies. Another original, “Slick urban nuances propel Curtis Mayfield’s inviting “Give Me Your Love.” Vocalist Chanel Fields penned “A Single Dance,” an R&B vocal cut decorated with gossamer strands of Antoinette’s sparkling harp riffs. Saxophonist Reggie Codrington contributed a couple tunes to the record, including “Spend Some Time (With You),” a romantic overture that he wrote with Phillips. The ‘70s classic “Boogie Nights” starts with a swinging jazz ride before rampaging through a sweltering workout of exultant booty shaking. “Journey” is the first of two mystical solo harp mediations with the title track being the other. Syncopated R&B rhythms provide the flowing undercurrent for Antoinette to float funky harp flourishes on Barry White’s “I’m Gonna Love You.”.
ASA, Family ,,,,, WE are Fired up and Ready to Go ! #JusticeOrElse? --These are tragic events in South Carolina, but what is even more tragic is the tragic saga of fear and capitulation and the buck dance of "negro" mis-leaders who step-n-fetch for the powers that be in South Carolina. To the white wealthy elite and old money families who waxed rich on slave-labor and still control it today; the architects of white supremacy---you all are reaping what you have sown. You sown the winds of wickedness & now you are reaping the ...world winds carrying your destruction. The God of the oppressed don't fight like you, the oppressor.
The Calamity that hit South Carolina is tragic, but we must face the truth, that this is the Hand of Allah (God) placing judgment here. Some of you may think it is insensitive of us who say the floods are the wrath of God against those who rejected the Hon. Minister Louis Farrakhan from coming here.
Some of you are simply uninformed about the time and the presence of God in this hour in America. Allah (God) has always used the forces of nature as weapons in the war against His enemies. Believe or disbelieve-He is talking through His actions and may His actions touch His enemies and spare His elect.
