A Path to Regaining the Idea of Black Citizenship in the U.S.

I recently watched an incredibly engaging interview of Bevelyn Beatty which I thoroughly enjoyed and in passing, and a question came up about how she became who she is today, how she came to know what she knows about American history, politics and race. She mentioned that a man by the name of David Barton was an inspirational teacher for her. Being the curator that I am, I immediately wrote down his name and began to look up videos of his talks. As a side note, I'd like to mention that I finally got a taste of Google censorship that I have heard so much about. When I input his name in Google search, the first page was filled with articles that debunked David Barton. I realized that Google wanted to discourage anyone from further researching him. But you know me. I did just that. Res...

The Black ‘Community’ versus Upwardly Mobile People Who Happen to be Black

By The.Pinnacle.Housewife As my family continues to move up in life, and our reality becomes more distant from the black collective's, we are realizing (if not already experiencing) that we are paying a great price. A price that most black folks don’t want to pay for the sake of staying with “their kind”. Here are some prices I’m seeing that your elevated black family will pay; and if you’ve been here long enough with me, you’ve personally witnessed at least one of these prices to be true. 1.) The black collective will ostracize you. “You’re acting white.” “You’re still a ni**a in their (white man’s) eyes”. Or they will call you other derogatory names to try to demean you, put you back in “your place”. If you’re not poor, a victim and scared of the big white man like them, you...

Join me on Patreon: The Bus Transfer

I am so excited to announce the launching of my new Patreon page called, 'The Bus Transfer'. I aim to answer the call of my supporters for a space where they can work through their transition from Leftist politics and ideologies. Notice I did not insert any political party of group. This space is all about those waking up from the Radical Liberal agenda. It's for everyone, ALL races and it's an acknowledgement that it is time to fill the void that happens when one #walksaway from the agenda. It's not easy to do and this is why I want to provide my input and advice on how I have made it through this process. What is a Bus Transfer?"A transfer allows the rider of a public transportation vehicle who pays for a single-trip fare to continue the trip on another bus or train." - Wikiped...

ODD and the Black ‘Community’

The other day I received a text message that was a message being shared/forwarded from person to person and it was a warning about a series of upcoming White Supremacist group initiations which would entail the sacrificing of black boys as part of their rituals. The purported sacrificing that was to take place was to be brutal, ruthless and chillingly murderous. The warning admonished black parents to watch over their children in the coming days and not to allow them to travel alone or engage with anyone that they did not know. The warning also exhorted women to be vigilant when out in public to be sure they don't get kidnapped by rabid white supremacists.This viral warning was professed to be written by the NAACP. The NAACP released a statement on July 5, 2020 denying having author...

Black Rednecks and White Liberals by Thomas Sowell

A summary written by Ikram Hawramani "The most interesting aspect of this work is his study of “redneck” culture. According to Sowell, redneck culture originated in Britain and was characterized by high criminality and violence, a lack of interest in education, pride, grandiosity and sexual promiscuity. Redneck migrants from England brought their culture with them and established themselves in the American South, repeating the same behaviors that they were famous for in Britain. Since nine tenth of black slaves lived in the South, they had the unfortunate fate of being acculturated to this redneck culture. Therefore according to Sowell, things that we consider to be “black” culture today (such as gangster rap and a low opinion of education) are actually the redneck culture of Brit...

A Firm Mindset to Reach Your Goals

Here's a firm mindset message that will most probably be considered CONTROVERSIAL. If your goal is to be a happily married woman, stop identifying with happily single women or unhappy married women. If your goal is to lose weight and be a healthy fit goddess, stop identifying with happily obese women. I know a lot of folks won't like this message but this is the realness of change and progress. The mind is a powerful and wonderful gateway to success but it can also be a powerful trap. That which you identify with is what your brain and energy will create more of in your life. If you make excuses for yourself, you cannot cry about your results. When you commit to a goal there is no opt-out option. This is how you win.And I can honestly say, I needed this self pep-tal...

Elizabeth Bartholet, Harvard Professors Calls for Ban on Homeschooling

Article curated here A Harvard University law professor has sparked controversy after calling for a ban on homeschooling. Elizabeth Bartholet told Harvard Magazine that it gives parents “authoritarian” control over their kids — and can even expose them to white supremacy and misogyny. “The issue is, do we think that parents should have 24/7, essentially authoritarian control over their children from ages zero to 18? I think that’s dangerous,” Bartholet said. “I think it’s always dangerous to put powerful people in charge of the powerless, and to give the powerful ones total authority.” Bartholet’s comments were met with backlash from homeschooling parents who said she unfairly stereotyped the practice. “Aside from its biting, one-sided portrayal of homeschooling fami...
