Ok I’m soooo sorry.
This blog is not taking off like we planned it to. I’m busy with classes and Saameri has her internship. I thought that this summer we’d have time to update this and kick it off strong because we hadn’t intiatally planned on being busy this summer. I still have photos to add from the natural hair convention last month. But I promise as soon as I can I will find time.
Sometimes I hate to think about those sad love songs a poems I wrote.
Usually they were inspired by false prophets
Shiftless niggas in kings clothing
It disgusts me that I cried until the snot ran ran
They don’t deserve my boogers.
The loss of sleep
The crumpled pages in my notebooks
Scribed with trembling hands
As my pen mourned with me

THE BIG LIE ABOUT CAPITALISM IS THAT EVERYONE CAN BE RICH. THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE. CAPITALISM WORKS ONLY IF THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION ARE KEPT POOR ENOUGH TO NEVER QUIT WORKING, ARE KEPT POOR ENOUGH TO ACCEPT DISTASTEFUL JOBS SOCIETY CANNOT FUNCTION WITHOUT. IF EVERYONE WERE A MILLIONAIRE, WHO WOULD EMPTY THE TRASH OR REPAIR THE SEWERS? IT FOLLOWS THAT THE POORER THE GENERAL POPULATION IS MADE, THE GREATER THE WORTH OF THE MONEY HELD BY THE WEALTHY, IN TERMS OF THE LIVES WHICH MAY BE BOUGHT AND SOLD WITH IT.
Can’t remember whose blog I took this off but I found it captivating.

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, he said:
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
