politics

i tend to NOT want to discuss politics and the like to much on my blog...i find that i much rather use this as a forum for my release...

HOWEVER, i have come acros SEVERAL blog posts that have been EXTREMELY enlightening and informative...so i wanted to just link em up so that you can go and look for yourselves...

i think that at this time in our lives, in this country, its time to take a stand...i for one have been hollerin to anyone who will listen to me for the past couple of years that the revolution will not be televised...meaning or basically stating that its time for us as a people of African descent to reclaim ourselves, our lives, our communities-our humanity and take a stand for the improvement... (yea its time for TC to get her PhD in history/african american studies) its time for me to make and take a stand and do something for my community (other than Kiamsha blog to follow)

with all that being said

check these out:

eighter from decatur
a picture says a million words
racism in my feminism...you don't say?

all of these posts are really informative and thought provoking so i urge you to check them out...

it has gotten me to think deeper about a lot of issues, one being, am i a woman or black first...and i don't think that i can separate the two...i am a black woman, my race and my gender go hand and hand in this modern society...but like Oprah said, "don't play me small"

peace people

I haven't been by your blog in like forever...mainly cause I stopped blogging for a while, but I'm back now. I usually try not to get too deep into politics either because we are so bombarded by that daily. But thanks for posting those links, I'll definitely be checking those out.

I agree lately politics are everywhere...which makes it a little hard to not get involved... I guess I am opening an ear slightly too.
