The side of Michael Jackson they don’t show you: his ACTUAL RACE.

On 6th February 1984, after winning an unprecedented number of AMA awards Michael spoke to black publication JET magazine about people in his life he was thankful for; Stevie Wonder, who expresses pride of race in his music.

“That’s why I love Stevie Wonder’s album called Songs in The Key of Life… He had a song called Black Man and I just jumped up screaming when I heard that record because he’s showing the world what the Black man has done and what other races have done… He named it Black Man and all these people who have got the album sing it. And that’s the best way to bring about the truth.”

Say Michael wasn’t black to my face and we fighting.

“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”

Will reblog everytime

Many Blacks don’t know the importance of our Melanin. Melanin converts the sun’s ultra violet Sunrays into vitamins for the body.  In other words BLACKS actually use the Sun’s light as POWER for the body. Meanwhile some Black people are actually out here bleaching their skin to rid themselves of the “curse of melanin.” That is because their whitewashed and white supremacy is one hell of a drug. 


There isn’t much mainstream research on the significance of melanin why? Because Whites lack Melanin and therefore to promote Melanin would to be to acknowledge the Superiority of Blacks. However this post isn’t to discuss who is “superior or inferior” people get loss in that. This post is to acknowledge the gifts that blacks have when they are in control of their mind, body, and spirit.  These gifts built great civilizations. The civilizations that influenced that rest of the word. Melanin is POWER. Africans are the most spiritual people because Melanin allowed us to tap in the spiritual realm. Before we were religious why do you think Africans were so spiritual? It has to do with Melanin. Melanin gives LIFE. Lack of Melanin makes one closer to death.  Our Pineal Gland is important to our beings.
Black people the first humans, first civilizations, we are the children of the sun.

10 Myths/Facts About Introverts

psych-facts:

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down.”

Got this from @myleik! Had no clue where this lady was going with this but it was an absolute blessing and reminds me of just how I should handle worry, stress, and doubt. Still working on it.
