Family is Forever

Me.Myself.BlckGirl

The Black family is legendary. A family that stands stronger together through love and prayer, but also knows how to sit back and “kick it”. A family is the basis for any person. They teach you the basics of life. From the time you start walking you become a piece of a never-ending puzzle because family is forever. I just came from a family BBQ with music, good food, and just love. I mean it was amazing how the energy from being around family can really just uplift your spirits.

But there’s something special about being apart of a black family. and you never really understand how much of a blessing it is until you are truly a part of one. I mean lets just break it down as if this were a banana split. For a banana split you have to have two bananas, and metaphorically this is the…

The fear of being the “angry black woman at work” 

AngielopesUK

Time and time again at work, I hear my fellow (few) black colleagues with fear of being labeled angry black women, when something goes wrong.

Is like a non-written rule, not fruit of paranoia or acting out the race card but of years of constant everyday racism examples of just simple ignorance and constant stereotyping about everything about us from our bodies being fetishized, to our minds being diminished or considered volcanic, to even the way we walk and dance.

Can you blame us that we snap at times after enduring this on a daily basis?

Even if we are right in feeling angry because someone was simply a bitch, said or done something against us, often times we don’t speak up for fear of our fellow white British colleagues making a comment or given us a look that we could be angry and hot tempered because we are black.

Young father gets flooded with donations after returning $1.2k accidentally sent to him

GOOD DEED: Gerrell McAllister 

A YOUNG father’s good deed has been rewarded after he returned $1,200 mistakenly given to him.

Gerrell McAllister has been inundated with generous donations after returning the large sum that was accidentally paid into his PayPal account.

The 28-year-old, father to a five-year-old daughter, said he got a notification from the money transfer service alerting him to the fact.

“It said, ‘You’ve got money!’” he told BuzzFeed. “So I’m thinking, ‘You’ve got jokes!’”

The funds were sent by 30-year-old Melissa Trusler’s father as a birthday present to help her with the sofa she recently purchased. McAllister noted returning the funds was painful, but he knew it was the right thing to do, despite falling on hard times since the death of his mother last year.

“To me, it was kind of a no-brainer,” Gerrell told The Independent. “I knew it wasn’t mine. Nobody would send that…

Summer Solstice 2017 Meditation Ritual

diaryofanegress

Image result for wednesday june 21 2017 calendar

This summer, on June 21, join me for a Melanin Rich meditation session. Events tend to take place in the summer affecting blacks due to our enemy’s intimate knowledge ( and our insistent ignorance)  of our powers. Every once in awhile, Yurugu is compelled to tell the truth about what we can do:

Yes, Black Family, ALL superhero movies are about YOU.

Celebrity Deaths will occur, tragedies will mysteriously happen and people that we know, or thought we knew, will begin to act “weird”. This  all because Spirits are being conjured to pummel us, fight us, invade us, confused us, sex us ( incubi mostly during sleep) and further divide us.

Why do we fall prey to this?

Because of our insistent ignorance and lack of knowledge. While we watch mindless TV, our enemies are planning what steps to take next.

For those of us that wish to fight back…

Understanding The Myth Of The Angry Black Woman

by/C.SMITH

The Angry Black Woman is a phrase used to refer to a bitter, sassy, ill-mannered, African American woman with a quick temper and sharp tongue. The Angry Black Woman has become a stereotypical character in many television and movie portrayals. Come on – will you ever forget the hilarious, Angela, from the Why Did I Get Married movies?

The Angry Black Woman is also a stereotypical insult. Many black women are tagged with this title when they unapologetically express their own views or stand, often publicly, on the courage of their convictions. The media frequently portrays women who speak out as the Angry Black Woman. Here are a few reasons you must dig deeper than media portrayal and try to understand her.

  1. Anger is a human emotion. Moreover, it’s a normal human emotion and everyone is entitled to feel it and…

White Women Weaponize Black Men Against Black Women

Nothing but the truth.

Keep Ypsi Black

This is not at all to take away any accountability from the Black men who also willingly perpetuate this misogynoir.

Black men allow this, and should be held fully responsible. I am also not condemning interracial dating.

This is just to briefly address the white women who continue to get away with weaponizing Black men, and interracial dating against Black women.

It is not uncommon to witness white women in interracial relationships with Black men. And those Black men often have terribly problematic views about Black women.

That Black women are “too dark,” “too angry,” “too hostile,” “not feminine enough,” “too strong willed,” “nappy headed,” “ugly,” and their biggest complaint is that Black women won’t submit to them.

In comparison, white women are supposedly “trophy wives,” “beautiful,” “classy,” “agreeable,” “feminine,” “docile,” and they make better partners.

Many of these interracial relationships are built only with the intention to spite Black…
