It's Because I'm Young

Blackness. Jazz. Rap. Politics. History. Religion. When I'm stressed I turn to Coltrane and when I'm angry it's Mingus. James Baldwin is my favorite writer and Yasiin Bey my favorite rapper.  “I am black; I am in total fusion with the world, in sympathetic affinity with the earth, losing my id in the heart of the cosmos -- and the white man, however intelligent he may be, is incapable of understanding Louis Armstrong or songs from the Congo. I am black, not because of a curse, but because my skin has been able to capture all the cosmic effluvia. I am truly a drop of sun under the earth.” - Frantz Fanon
I get asked why i post pictures like this and it’s simple….I refuse to allow myself to forget for one second the history of this countries treatment of my People. This is something i had to research for myself since my “History” classes were very brief on the part of AMERICAN History. Never forget that freedom for Blacks did’t happen in 1865

    The grin on the little girl’s face is frightening. To find entertainment in such a thing is sickening.
