I watched Them when it first came out with no context. This is for my american brothers and sisters were you as disturbed by the show as I was or do you think this something that should be celebrated? I ask because in my opinion the show could have done without all the gruesome scenes i am legit seeing so many ppl saying go watch this show so we are casually promoting black trauma...OK
Watch the whole video and check out their socials and you'll discover that#vitaelondon are really helping to create the change we want to see more of in the world.
"Vitae London’s goal is to combine classic and beautiful design with social justice. Their stylish watches don’t break the bank, but each one sold makes a huge difference to children in Africa whose limited access to school uniform and other basic equipment is an obstacle to enriching their experience in education."
Check out Finnlondon It's a UK black owned Neobank (I have been waiting for something like this to be created for years). Consider this to be our own version of monzo/revolut. It's looking to be launched later this year.
Do your research on Finn and those behind it and hopefully you come to the same conclusion I have, that this is looking promising and more of us need to hear about this and jump on board.

The President that refused to take covid vaccinations and treated the sickness with the herbal remedie covid organics from Madagascar. (Did you know, Artemisia is also good to treat Malaria?)
I remenber when i read the news that President Magufuli announced that private and other persons buying cashews in the country had to pay fair prices to the farmers or else the government will buy all cashews (as chashew production is an important sector of tanzanias economy). Some time later I read that he send out the military to buy all cashews available. i was impressed.
It's nice to see a lot more active people on here I was never really on twitter but the jokes im starting to see on here are really cracking me up. Anything we get are hands on we can fully make popping and blow. Keep sharing and getting everyone you know on here.

'Cause it's a war going on outside on the corner
It's a war on your TV screen every morning
Not the war with the bombs and the helicopters swarming
BUT THE WAR FOR YOUR S-O-U-L, THAT'S WHAT EVERYONE'S IGNORING
It's a war going on'
Im just trying to maintain my inner peace and balance because paying too much attention to whats happening outside in the world could drive anyone insane. Practise self love in abundace and look out for those you cherish and those who appreciate you.
Once a man has vanquished fear he is free from it for the rest of his life because instead of fear he has acquired clarity which is also the 2nd enemy. A clarity of mind which is so hard to obtain dispels fear but also blind. He will fumble with learning until he winds up incapable of learning anything more. He must defy clarity and use it only to see and a moment will come when he understands that it will not be only a point before his eyes. It will be true power. Power is the strongest of all enemies. His enemy will have turned him into a cruel, capricious man continued below...
I joined a black owned credit union earlier this year and already on a waiting list to joining a blackowned neobank (Super excited for this as its a much needed and modern alternative to conventional banking). It's been a struggle to find a black owned bank that offers great modern services. I'm trying to see whose really about black empowerment because we can all be on this platform and support our businesses which is fine but there is so much more we can do. I am aware of there being many black owned banks out in the states. So I would like to know who here is banking black?
This is one of my local favourite black owned munches. These are the kind of businesses we need to continue to support and uplift. Those that work with others to help give back to the community. Share this around.

You have free will to question the works of man, especially ones that DO NO have our best interest, as seen from history.
If someone have been lying and oppressing you for hundreds of years, it should not take us a few years to start believing them.
If you pay attention, you will see that what's going on now, is focused against the Black community and no others. There's a reason, we are more rebellious than other cultures and it's NOT because our culture is bad.
I got to watch a special virtual screening of His House last night followed by a nice Q & with the director Remi Weekes and both leads Sope Dirisu and Wunmi Mimosaku.
This is a unique take on the haunted house genre. It's a great debut for the director and definitely worth watching in my opinion.
