Featured In A Music Video

Hey guys, so Azza and I took a philosophy of the African American Experience class two semesters ago. It was taught by the most amazing professor ever (Devon Johnson) and possibly the most important and enlightening course of our entire college careers. He asked us to be students in his upcoming music video, check it out. We are so excited and proud to be part of his amazing journey and glad for all the knowledge he bestowed upon us lol.

So there I was, just minding my business in the movies when I saw a really huge poster for the movie "The Help". I was transfixed in one spot for a good 2 minutes staring at it. Then some kids walked by and started laughing at the poster and making jokes. I thought to my self, the impressions this movie leaves on people will stick with them for a long time.I then went home and saw the trailer....

Okay. My thing is, NO MATTER WHAT, when anyone leaves that movie, (children, older people, whatever) images of minstrel wild black people and soft beautiful white people will be dancing in their heads. And even though I KNOW it is a movie about overcoming the shit, it still inceptions ideas of subordinate and lower status blacks and dominant white people (whether it is due to them repressing or one of them trying to save blacks) in people’s minds. As in, ideas that white is up and other is down. And this movie (there is one every year)
has the old white person saving helpless races. Damn there are enough of these damn movies already. I like stuff like The Great Debaters because it promotes images of educated black people helping themselves. The way that a lot of black people used to act all wildly and uneducated and subordinate to white people was already mostly due to the repressive white segregative, dehumanizing system, the least that can be done is to try not to give the next impressionable generation these images of blacks all the damn time for them to add to their repertoire of black behavior cause it will affect how this generation blacks navigate in the world. Its hard for me to explain by writing. It probably didn’t make sense.
On another note, that damn mythological volt Disney is always referring to when it comes to their re-releases......that is where most movies like this belong. Or the nearest trash receptacle. Don't forget to recycle

Love These Pants

I got these really comfortable pants from Zara a while ago and I love them so much. They have the same comfort level as sweatpants. I can wear many types of shirts with them. They cost a pretty penny, but to me it was worth it because I wear them so much. Also, sis was in town that day. Love her!! 
Check out her blogs

Rollin' Around

Ivie and I have pretty much made it a habit to skate everyday, because it's just good practice and always fun. Here's us rollin' through Temple's campus, which is great over the summer, because it's pretty chill and empty. Great for taking photos!
