everything-bass:

Dear Palestine, dear Syria, dear Burma, Dear Afghanistan, and dear every other oppressed country - do not think that Allah does not know what you are going through. Do not think that Allah cannot see what is happening. Do not think that Allah does not care. He does. He is just waiting to show them how He is far greater than all of their rockets, bombs, rifles. He’s giving them time to show their “strength” so that He can then show them how they are nothing, absolutely nothing compared to Him. Allah will recompense all that you’re going through. Have patience, victory is coming.

"Being  black is not a matter of pigmentation - being black is a reflection of a mental attitude.”
“Black Consciousness is an attitude of the mind and a way of life, the most positive call to emanate from the black world for a long time.”
"Merely by describing yourself as black you have started on a road towards emancipation, you have committed yourself to fight against all forces that seek to use your blackness as a stamp that marks you out as a subservient being."
“The most potent weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.”
“The basic tenet of black consciousness is that the black man must reject all value systems that seek to make him a foreigner in the country of his birth and reduce his basic human dignity.” 

- Stephen Bantu Biko

Mysogyny in Hip Hop: These Hoes aint loyal?

theafrikahnpoet:

girls: i sing loyal in the club. Its not a big deal. Its catchy. boys: wait so you guys sing it which makes it okay. U acknowledge it? ….
Shaking my head to all these women shackled into thinking and confidently bashing me for trying to dismantle their perpetually derogatised mindset like”its a catchy song, Lethabo. Its not that deep”
sad to see the acceptance of mysogynist culture in Hip Hop by young women

Let the church say Amen!!!

Linda: What advice do you have for girls?

Dr. Angelou: To laugh as much as possible, always laugh. It is the sweetest thing one can do for oneself and one’s fellow human being. When people see the laughing face, even if they’re jealous of it, their burden is lightened. But do it first for yourself. Laugh and dare to try to love somebody, starting with yourself.

stories-yet-to-be-written:

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 

Rest in peace Maya Angelou
