When I first saw this video of Treasure Richardson, I knew from the start it had to be a set up, a hoax, a scam or some such thing as that. In the ensuing days after the airing of this segment, with a little ground work and exposure by Treasure's Sister, Nina, it has come to light, that it is simply a scam for ratings and notoriety, perpetrated by a young woman and her mother who come from a very painful home life experience.

Now, this video will be a bit of a departure from my usual research in that it started off with a dream that I decided to research for its historical context and ended up in a very deep and interesting rabbit hole.
To begin, I am a prolific dreamer. I dream stories. I would say that I time travel in my dreams, some may say I astral project and all of that, but I have had some dreams that have
Born in Harlem New York and raised partially in the Bronx New York and later Teaneck NJ, by a struggling single mother, Kamal was almost naturally entangled in a world where it seemed that everything was against him. His world was a dangerous one. With his mother fainting and having nervous breakdowns due to overwhelming stress, Kamal was left to
According to Fashion Designer Diane Linston, fashions should always be high-key, up beat and fashionably fun. Sequins fashions is still a hot trend for the 2017 fall season and Linston has her finger on the pulse of glitz and glamour with style creations that transcend from business casual to red carpet glamour. If you still think that sequins are only good for a night out, then Diane Linston, creative director of Style of Imagi
NB Commentary: I attended a predominately white high school and college. Them white folks loved to say they were French, German and Italian mixed. They knew their mother's lineage and their father's. They would tell you that before they would even say "American". They were proud of their heritage even if they had been here four or 5 generations. Some of them knew their names before they changed them to more Anglo names, particularly the Polish, Russian and Germans.
NB Commentary: Okay Folks, this is one topic I really hesitated to weigh in on. But as usual, I get signs from the Universe as to what should be the next topic of my YouTube videos. It's quite magical how it works and I simply go with the flow.
I am not sure how long this video will end up being. I would like to say that this will be a short video, but I doubt that I can keep to that promise. I hope that you all will stay with me and follow my train of thought all the way to the conclusion.
Interesting twist on this rumor of Michelle being born a man. Blurring of gender lines is an interesting topic that I want to tackle in my own video. But suffice it to say, there is still a level of naiveté' on your part as it relates to body types, and what's feminine and what's masculine. I can see your point about branding, but, I am not too sure if I agree with it to the extent that you are portraying in this video.
Third generation physician and author of the Isis Papers, Dr. Frances Cress Welsing passed a
way in January 2016. Weeks before her transition she told her Cress Welsing Institute students that Donald J. Trump would be the next president of the United States. Her clairvoyance was a a product of her scientific brilliance and her unparalleled understanding of Racism/White Supremacy. It is a colossal loss not having her with us to dissect the results and take a bow for extra-ordinary forecast.
NB COMMENTARY: There's a rumor going around that Barack Hussein Obama may be elected into the Office of Secretary General come this December, 2016. Now wouldn't having Obama as Secretary General of the UN, just bust a lot of buttons??!! Obama would be the perfect choice, as he is most in alignment with the type of puppet they need. But wouldn't that be some history right there, the 1st Black President, and the first African American to be Secretary General of the UN!!! OMG, I see stars, I se
In April 1960, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, then led by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., established the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Ella Baker, at the suggestion of Dr. King, was the primary organizer (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), 2013). This student movement was one of a few Black Power organizations that changed its philosophy from being a civil rights organization, embracing the strategy of non-violence, to a Black Power organization th
In order to raise the consciousness of our African brothers and sisters, we must understand and apply the Akan concept of Sankofa, which means that in order to move forward we first have to take a step back. In other words, before we can be prepared for the future, we must comprehend the past. Therefore, here is a partial list of just some of the thousands of past (and present) inventions, patents, improvements, discoveries, creations, and innovations by and pertaining to

NB Commentary: When the now President Obama was running for election back in 2007 he made a lot of promises and gave people the adage that Hope and Change were in the offing. It was time and "Yes, We Can" rang out through the media and the entertainment world took it up and splattered every media outlet with this adage. I even remember myself feeling anxious about the election and wondered if he really would win. He appeared to be anti-everything that his predecessor was openly for.
I recently saw a documentary of the Black Panther Party that aired at the E Street Cinema in Washington, DC. It was the most compelling and accurate portrayal of the organization that I have seen. Many have sought to demonize the young Black activists and their efforts have gone largely unrecognized. The documentary is a collection of news clips and interviews with authentic voices. It puts to rest the contention that the Black Panther Party was a terrorist organization and/or a hate group. I
