Quote of the Day

Mistaking ignorance for fact is the epitome of blatant stupidity.

- @ReesonableDoubt

Being ignorant doesn't make someone dumb. It's accepting that ignorance that reflects a persons intelligence. The moment you close your mind to incoming knowledge is the moment you become a dumbass.

The Rose That Grew From Concrete

Did u hear about the rose that grew from a crack
in the concrete
Proving nature's laws wrong it learned 2 walk
without having feet
Funny it seems but by keeping its dreams
it learned 2 breathe fresh air
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else even cared!

If Life wasn't a struggle, there would be nothing to accomplish or overcome. The struggles in your life are positive

- @KingJames

Success means more when you've worked for it. Be able to tell your story. 
Nothing that's worth something is easy to achieve.

Art Appreciation: "Runaway"

Salute to Kanye West. This was simply a complex genius work. 
The film touches my heart.

Who will survive in America?

Quote of the Day

Iight, cut the blunts vs papers shit ppl. Get high, be happy

I know I've made my preference clear, but let's not be like the rest of the world and create a divide between our counterculture. Marijuana brings us together, and that's what makes us special.

Random Thought

I'm watching the newest (I guess third) X-men movie, and I'm squirming in my skin. I never have been a fan of super violent films... and right now all I see is mutants killing each other over and over again... yet all of them are still alive in the end.

It just came to me.. Lo says the Phoenix girl is super powerful, like this bald one thats everywhere at one time..

My response..
What fun is all those powers if all you can do is destroy?

If I ever get super powers, they won't be generic ones, like x-ray vision and flight abilities. My glasses are thick enough and I fly everyday. They'll be the ones people would least expect. Like language translation and speaking powers so that my communication with the world isn't limited. I think it 'd be sweet being able to speak to anyone in any language. Plus, right now I suck in foreign language. I think I'm unteachable.

I wanted to watch Private Parts... guess I'm the only sicko who likes Howard Stern...
we're watching Katt Williams.

He's trapped under a motorcycle.

"Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny."

Legalize Gay, 'cuz being Gay is Illegal RIGHT??
- Nana

If being gay is a choice, then so is being straight. It pains me to see society treat people like foreign creatures over something as personal as their sexual orientation, especially in today's day and age. To save face as the world's "freedom and liberty for all"-pledging nation, America has composed the "Legalize Gay" campaign.... but since when has being gay made someone a criminal? Way to add insult to injury. The reason I never purchased or sported one of American Apparel's t-shirt stamped with the phrase.

It's funny how people will say they don't support gays, yet have no problem with females dating one another. I understand the difference, but I don't support he reasoning. The world will never be fully accepting of homosexuals unless they stop treating them like the elephant in the room. And if they won't accept gays, then they can't except bisexuals, neither men nor women. Take us all, or have none of us at all.

The suicides result from tormenting. Tormenting is empowered by ignorance. Ignorance is instilled by our government. 

I Wanna Transfer to PCU!

A hilarious "subculture vs society" film. Stoners throw a party and subsequently reek havoc on college administration. Why haven't I seen this before?!

Quote of the Day

Throughout history it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph.

Whip My Hair

Yes, I do flip my hair.

This little girl is amazing, and it's not because she's the daughter of Will and Jada. I found it hard to believe I was watching the music video of a 9-year-old child.

**I pray that Willow Smith, if she decides to pursue this career path, grows to be a sensible, successful young woman. God-willing she will not fall to the corrupting affects of fame,


Tis my message to the young Black women of my community.

"You wonder why we call you bitch." We've heard it from one of the realest men to grace this earth. As women, we should be ashamed of ourselves and the current condition of our minority. It seems these days that all we are good for is making babies. Housework has become foreign to us, and we seem to be too good or fragile for manual labor. What is a woman good for if she can't take care of herself? We would rather fall for a boy that's in love with our bodies, instead of appreciate a man who is in love with who we are. We would rather have things done for us, than to do for ourselves.

Respect starts within! We cry and pout when we get played, yet we allow ourselves to be degraded and mistreated. Know your worth. Lower your standards and you lower yourself. As long as you have that reproductive organ between your legs, you can get a man. But that doesn't mean you have to use it to get one. No man in his right mind wants the girl that has more miles than a Subaru. No one wants a woman who is a mere girl, looking for a "sponsor" to pay her way through the mall.

As a young Black woman I take pride in knowing that when it is time for me to start a family, I will be able to care of them. I will never look for a man to do the things I am capable of doing on my own. The day I need a crutch will be the day I lose my strength. And if it's one thing I know, it's that a Black woman need be strong-minded and independent.. It's in our blood.

We are so much more than what we have become. 
It is time for us to act as such.

The BitterSweet Truth

One thing about photographic journalism, once you miss a shot it's gone forever.
No moment can be captured twice.

You're fooling no one but yourself. Twitter, Facebook, no social networking site can recreate who you are.

Bouncin' Like a Fool

I never saw anyone beat their feet like this before.

I just died laughing and went to bounce beat heaven. I need some choppin' lessons from little man here.

What's Real?

The majority of us claim it. Half really get it. Less than that really are.

Everyone wants to be real, but do y'all really know what the word means? Dictionary.com says:

Being real isn't about what you seem to be to others. It's about who you actually are. We're ourselves when no one is looking. The true test is who you become when people are looking. If you have to state 10 times a day "I'm the realest nigga," chances are, you're not. You can't convince the world that you're real, and you can't fool the ones who know you. 
Live a lie and lose who you are. 

What is it to me?

Quote of the Day

"Football on Sundays was America's greatest idea."

The day of leisure, when no one does anything but go to church, rest, and eat a damn good dinner. The only thing that makes it better is being able to sit back and watch football games all day. I am currently wrapped up in my Snuggie watching the Saints hold on to a lead against the Carolina Panthers, and it feels right. Sunday is God's chosen day of rest, and I think it was for this reason. Because who doesn't enjoy a pigskin special?

*Carolina just scored.*

Please wake me when I'm free
I cannot bear captivity
where my culture I'm told holds no significance
I'll wither and die in ignorance
But my inner eye can c a race
who reigned as kings in another place
the green of trees were rich and full
and every man spoke of beautiful
men and women together as equals
War was gone because all was peaceful
But now like a nightmare I wake 2 c
That I live like a prisoner of poverty
Please wake me when I'm free
I cannot bear captivity
4 I would rather be stricken blind
than 2 live without expression of mind

-Tupac Shakur
