How many of you have heard Latasha Harlins?
*everyone is silent*She was killed by Korean store owner Soon Ja Du, which set off the LA Riots. Ice Cube did a song about her called Black Korea, predicting that riot in fact. Some of us know. And no, I didn’t have to look her up. I remember. I read the Final Call.
She was murdered over a damn bottle of orange juice that store owner thought she was going to steal. There were eye witnesses and security camera footage.
The store owner still got no jail time!
It’s not just an inconvenience to be followed around the store. You can be murdered if the store clerk decides to stand their ground. If you’ve been followed around a store before, let Harlins tragedy serve as a reminder of why you shouldn’t go back.
Don’t spend money where you are not welcomed!
In general, people are not drawn to perfection in others. People are drawn to shared interests, shared problems, and an individual’s life energy. Humans connect with humans. Hiding one’s humanity and trying to project an image of perfection makes a person vague, slippery, lifeless, and uninteresting.

Every time I see this I laugh … So silly ~
one of my faves.
The weakest living creature, by concentrating his powers on a single object, can accomplish something. The strongest, by dispensing his over many, may fail to accomplish anything. The drop, by continually falling, bores its passage through the hardest rock. The hasty torrent rushes over it with hideous uproar, and leaves no trace behind.

Weak is the new strong

What’s so strange about the Olmec heads is that they are not found naturally covered by earth through time.
Archeologists can tell that these heads & other Olmec artifacts where purposely buried. Some,…. Wait for it…..with their noses missing. Sound familiar? So someone made a concerted effort to hide the Olmec legacy. Oh well.
I’m not surprised at all.
White people weren’t the first people to have boats and there is enough evidence throughout the world to prove black people traded and travelled with every continent containing humans.
