Black Vegans Rescue Soul Food From Hungry Appropriators

They do it because they understand fully the importance of protecting one’s foundation.  How can you build it you dont have a foundation, and how can your building stand if the foundation is destroyed? Black Vegans and Holistic Practitioners definitely understand that their roots are based in Soul Food cooking – I’m talking about the…

My Herb and Tomato Plant Children

The herbs are growing wild.  They still seem to be healthy.  All I’m doing is watering them with my fruit and flower formula.  One tablespoon in a gallon of water, then drench the plants with it, especially the tomato.  I figure since tomatoes are made up of mostly water, the plant would need more as it grows bigger.  So I water it daily,…

Erykah Badu Speaks Healing

Like I’ve said before, Erykah Badu tried to tell you!  She ain’t no joke. On and on, and on and on My cipher keep moving like a rolling stone… She and her cipher still messing people up.  It’s all good though.  But right here in this clip, she’s on a mundane tip – trying to teach the Creator’s righteous…

My New Herb Plant Babies!

These are my little babies.  I’ve been watching over them and doting on them since they were young.  In the above photo, I think I’ve had them for about two weeks.   They started their lives at Home Depot in Emeryville (next to Oakland)  and I came along and adopted them.  I’ve mothered them and will continue…

Deltas, Black Women, Love, Power and Respect

There was a mash up between the Honorary Delta  Rae Lewis-Thornton and the Delta Sigma Theta Leader Rose McKinney.  In the end Sister Rae was booted out of the honorary membership.  As I listened to the video that Sister Rae posted, I got the feeling that I understood what may have happened, even though I don’t know the…

Urban Children Given the Opportunity To Learn About Nature

For the past month, I’ve embarked on a new natural lifestyle.  I have been walking around my neighborhood, for health and beauty’s sake, I’ve been eating more natural food, and eliminating junk food bit by bit.  I’ve been doing more studying of our black culture and have been uplifting my life in general, with God’s…

Defiling God’s Temple

I have been working on my eating habits for the last three weeks and it has been quite a blessing.  On April 8th, Resurrection Sunday, I made the pledge to start eating a healthy diet that builds and sustains my life.  I want to be strong and live as long as God has given me…

Food Porn Ponderings

Go ahead, cheat on butter! When I’m watching tv, I’m amazed and amused by the way food is advertised, especially to women.  It’s interesting to observe the  lengths (no pun intended) to which the corporate  food overlords will go, trying to bait me to lust after velvety smooth Yoplait yogurt, or sinfully rich Dove chocolate bars.  They pull out all the stops as they…

White Business Partners – Can You Truss ‘Em?

Oh, how racism and jealousy can destroy a good thing!  If your business partner is white, make sure he’s not easily influenced by racists.  Find out if his friends are racists, and whether they can sway him against you.   It’s been said that you can tell much about a person by the company he keeps.  Do a background check to…

Venus Williams Announces That She Suffers From Sjogren’s Syndrome

  Venus Williams has withdrawn from the 2011 U.S. Open. She recently found out that she has been suffering all this time with a debilitating autoimmune disease, Sjogren’s Syndrome, that causes symptoms of aching joints, dry eye and dry mouth and fatigue, but affects the body in more serious ways.  It’s amazing that she has been playing at what appeared…

Albinism – Lack of Melanin Can Be Hazardous To Your Health

Black folks have had a long love/hate affair with melanin.  We have desired to crush it under our feet, to deny its existence, to cover it up with makeup or just languish in resignation as it followed us around our entire lives.  Or we have desired to brag about its super powers, set it up…

Maurice Copeland, Relentless Honeywell Whistleblower, Powerful Revolutionary

It’s too bad that so many political and social activists aren’t getting the media attention that their particular battles merit.  They are struggling for the rights of the people.  They have seen inequity, unfairness, and downright heinousness–in their workplaces, their communities and in the world!  Rather than turn a blind eye, they have raised their hands and proclaimed “Here…
