Who here remembers Black people STARTED Social Media with "Black Planet"? All were welcome but if you started drama and you were an "other" people would call you out. That led the way for "MySpace" I direct BITE of BP where "others" would feel more. comfortable. Then came "FaceBook" which was originally for college students. It differed from MS by asking people to use real names so people could track you down. Then came Twitter to put a limit on some of them long ass post. Then instagram cause who reads anymore anyway. I could go on but you get the point.#ORIGINATORS

Hi Tiffany, I too am a small business owner. Remember, people who don't understand what you need generally aren't trying to go in the direction that you are going! Stay focused! My wife just checked out your website & subscribed to your newsletter. She loves candles.
There are many small business owners on this platform and i'm sure they can help motivate you when you need it. Stay positive and motivated.
As a black small business owner i swear it can be lonley sometimes. your friends dont understand the motivation you need sometimes because they dont understand what you are doing. With thay being said i need some business buddies.
We as Black people have only been slapping at White Supremacy ever since we got civil rights. Not to take away anything from anybody who has fought for the freedoms I have today, my appreciation is a understatement, because back then I would have been on a soap box on a street corner, where the enemy would have heard my rhetoric and possibly plotted on me. But today I come to you humbly and with much RESPECT.
To Say Now is Our time, past due in fact for for us to close our hand into the Mighty Fist we really are as a race because we are truly in last place in the world except in the prison system/justice in USA which is the new Jim Crow. We should really unite to get Silver, Gold, Green(Land) Rights that is in debit to us and the many other looted rights in not only In the USA but at home too in Africa.
There's a distinct difference between RACISM & REALISM... REALISM is backed by TRUTH & STATISTICAL DATA!!! It is critical that we establish & maintain a BLK MEDIA, especially as we see the assault against the 1st amendment when it comes to us & the dramatic leftist propaganda geared at coaxing is into implosion & insolvency!
Today is a MAGICAL day as Saturn and Jupiter align for the first time since the Middle Ages! Save 50% off on the MAGICAL story of the Queen of Heaven.
Who is the Queen of Heaven mentioned in Jeremiah 44:17? No one knows. Black matriarchs with superpowers were murdered and erased from history. Why? A secret hidden over 3,000 years. Revealed in my epic, Ashira's World: The Queen of Heaven Returns.

Caribbean Blacks who are living in the United States, we have to get away from being solely self-interested and resentful to African Americans not grasping towards the opportunitues we are utilizing.
There's a reason why we have more access to all these opportunities and African Americans, access to little.
There's a difference in treatment of Caribbean Blacks and African Americans. At the end of the day, White Supremacy lumps us all in the same category of oppressed people.
So choose your fight, wisely. Research and understand.
