Some businesses are 100% Black-owned and operated, like this platform. These brands outright identify as having Black founders and CEOs. Brands I love like Capital City Mambo Sauce, Uncle Ray's Products, and clothes from Black Vibe Tribe or hair care products from Black Naps (Natural and Proud Sistas).

 

Then some brands are majority-owned. Consider Tristan Walker who sold his multimillion-dollar men's grooming brand Bevel to Procter & Gamble in 2018 yet still remains the company's CEO. Rockstar

Certain smells and scents can literally impact my mood. The part of our brain that processes smell just so happens to also stores our memories. The scent of sugar cookies reminds me of my Nannie. Woodsy earthy scents are sensual and remind me of a certain ex. Just like a fond memory can change your mood, an aroma can also change the atmosphere. The scent that lingers in my home is so important to me. More than just a way of eliminating odor, home fragrance is also a means of self-expression.

White racists hate black people and the knee-jerk reaction is to hate them back. This is the typical reaction  that our culture produces. Wait a minute. We are in a very desperate situation and as such knee-jerk reactions should give way to carefully thought-out  strategy.

The sad fact is that these racists are nothing but pawns of the notorious 1% that dominate American politics. One percent is a very small number, so how can such a small number dominate American politics? Of course, they have b

American Holocaust

 

One of the main defenses Germans made in their defense of allowing the atrocities committed by Hitler against the Jews is ignorance. “We did not know…..”. Well right now America is committing atrocities worldwide and most Americans know but do not seem to care.

War crimes are being committed without war. It is a war crime for a country to deliberately kill hundreds or thousands of innocent civilians to overcome the enemy.  America is killing thousands of innocent men, women and children all over

They are not working because these killings are because of the accepted killing culture that we have established in which killing is fun.

When my grandson was only seven, he was killing over 20 villains per day in video games. I remember as a kid, we played marbles, checkers and scrabble. Now, instead kids are addicted to

When, in 2019, a non-governmental and non-profit organization - Citizens Quest for Truth Initiative, came on stream, not a few persons consigned her future to the dustbin. One of the reasons stemmed from the fact that people knew next to nothing about the vision and mission of the NGO. Another being that, to most of such initiatives, political colouration won't allow them to stand the test of time.

 

This later group of persons therefore spared nothing in their avowed commitment in seeing that eve
