It have been a rough few weeks, maybe a month with optimizing the platform as we were experiencing increased growth which slowed down the site immensely.
We are also working to improve the mobile application as there were some major issues.
It's not an easy road when there's little support, usage and resources to push these platforms out there but we are committed and would hope that our users are committed as well.
This journey is not a short one but with the necessary support, we will get there faster.
i made it! time flew and i didn't realize it. so what exactly did i make?
i made 200 videos on youtube!
i can't believe i already did this and in completing 200 videos i've overachieved this milestone already early in my youtube career.
recap with me the journey from video 100 to 200 and the things that have changed within my creating them. see my growth, new additions, and future goals. the goth life includes being really excited and engaged to do your part to keep the movement growing.

Does anyone find it problematic that we have the word black in the title all of most of our organizations just to find each other or to let others know that its fubu? We make it easy for outsiders to infiltrate and to seek and destroy our progress. We need an innocuous "La Raza" type term that we recognize but lacks the racial charge. That way the bulk of our growth and progress as a people can form like an iceberg under water.

AND another note , I wish we as people stop putting this negative stigma to teachers because they "dont make money" ... ONE.. ITS NOT ABOUT MONEY! .. YES , we want to be able to support ourselves but we have to stop steering our youth away from being in our community activly through a teaching carrer because it does pay as well ... you gain so much more from being in the education system money cant buy you.. i have joy knowing im shaping my youth and seeing thier growth is so rewarding !
Black is the exception under white supremacy because everyone else benefits, EXCEPT Black.
This has been the standard practice throughout history and it continues because our value is less than their crumbs.
You see, if we value going against the status quo, then that status quo no longer exist for us. It exist because we choose to live under it for we know that living above it, requires us to work harder than white supremacy who are working hard to keep us stagnant.
A community without growth makes it easy for other communities to bully us and it's the Black reality.
Self-love is more than facials, massages, and nice dinners. It’s more than eating well, working out, and splurging. Self-love, most importantly, is turning the search light on your own soul and cleaning the garbage out. It’s admitting where you have been toxic and where you have been breaking your own heart. It’s recognizing the trauma, acknowledging the pain, and processing it piece by piece. Self-Love is releasing bitterness and resentment as defense mechanisms and embracing your authentic self at every level of growth.
