BAD FOR BLACK BUSINESS

"Here is a news flash to black people: NOBODY OWES YOU ANYTHING!!!

Mark Jeffrey

What did he just say?

That is the same and exact attitude black people take to their graves leaving behind no business for their children to inherit and no trust funds to help ease their way.

When black children grow up in the struggle with the attitude that "nobody never gave me nothing" it is because of the legacy left behind. by.....

"Here is a…

Stop hating on black people ~"Get your own act together before you work on someone else!!!"

Is “hating” and “attacking” the only emotion black people know to call upon for every human situation and interaction because there is something else….. It is called tough love

 

Tough love makes it impossible to "get your own act together before you work on someone else!!! Because… we are all intertwined in “ all for one and one for all” and “a chain is only a strong as its weakest link.”

For example

If you are living together under the same roof with 4…

BE THANKFUL I TOLD YOU THIS....

If black people should be thankful for anything be thankful I told you this….

The worst mentality to have is to be thankful to have a job because there will always be work and for those out of work it is just a matter of pinpointing what it is you are good at doing and people will pay you for it.

Make it pay. Go get some business cards stating this is whom you are and this is what I do…. I took my own advice.

One day I was driving along and came upon a red light. As I…

LOUISIANNA WITH THE 2ND LARGEST BLACK POPULATION IN THE UNITED STATES ABOLISHES PUBLIC EDUCATION IN 2013

The program was signed into law by Gov. Bobby Jindal in April and takes effect immediately. For example, the school offering the most open slots to voucher students, “has a top-ranked basketball team but no library.

Students spend most of the day watching TVs in barebones classrooms. Each lesson consists of an instructional DVD that intersperses Biblical verses with subjects such chemistry or composition.

~ YOU HAVE TO KICK ASS TO GET RESPECT ~

If Black Americans are addicted to breathing then it is very final because we are in the end game of the struggle where winner takes all, you lose you pay with your life. Without funding black America is defeated for lack and inability to sustain life by way of food, shelter, clothing and transportation.

 

It is final but it isn’t over because they print money everyday and when it comes to not having any money the line starts to the right. The challenge is to strategy a plan…

YOU ARE BEING ERASED!

FROM:Bougie Black Girl

Biracial Danish actress, Jaqueline Fleming stars as Harriet Tubman in the new movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. No offense to Ms. Fleming but she in no way resembles Mother Tubman. There are millions of Black actresses out there. Why choose this one? I believe Hollywood seems much more comfortable with women who like her than Black women who look like Mother Tubman.

The most powerful thing we must do is control our image. And since money is power the…

SOMETIMES IT IS A SHAME AND EMBARRASSMENT TO BE A BLACK PERSON

DEAR BLACK AMERICA 2012 AND BEYOND

It is a shame and an embarrassment to be a black person because every time you look around black people are crying, and whining because someone hurt their feelings or insulted our infantile intellect:

"Toyota insulted us by putting those "thank you ads" in White newspapers and refusing to address Black consumers in Black newspapers,"

Walter Smith,

Publisher of the New York Beacon…

KNOW WHO IS COOKING UP YOUR DINNER AND SHOW.......DID YOU KNOW ?.

"Every month African-American women rely on Essence for editorial content designed to help them move their lives forward personally, professionally, intellectually and spiritually. Essence must think that African-American women will be moved forward spiritually by Planned Parenthood, because the largest abortion provider in the United States, one that kills 300,000 American babies annually, is sponsoring the 2012 ESSENCE Music Festival in New Orleans."

Would you build your house the same way you’ve built your life? Could it last for years to come?

Would you build your house the same way you’ve built your life? Could it last for years to come?

I know that most of you would look at these two questions and answer, “Of course not!” We all would have someone with experience…….. a contractor, a plumber, an electrician. Someone who would have the knowledge and ability to utilize the proper equipment, and advise us of possible problems we may face. They would leave their card and reassure us they would only be a phone call away. Once…

Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.
