Divided We Stand, United We Fall: Will This Be The Sad Legacy Of The Black Race?
(ThyBlackMan.com) It’s no surprise that I speak about race and how unnecessarily divided Black people are a whole lot.
To some, I speak on it far too much in a manner that eclipse my other obvious talents and abilities.
You should hear what they say to me…….

“What happened to you in your life to make you so angry?”

(ThyBlackMan.com) Have you ever said something and then reflected on it and later thought to yourself, “I should not have said that?” The new term I’ve created for this phenomena, is… “I shouldna”, as in “I should not have” said that.

Parents, schools and communities are constantly encouraging young people to stay away from drugs such cocaine, meth, ecstasy and even marijuana.

ThySistas – Sisterhood through action – Posts…
