With the racism that is running rampant in this country, I'm always amused when I hear white people tell black people to "go back to Africa", when black people cite and oppose racism. You hear it alot from white people concerning NFL players taking a knee to protest police brutality & racial injustice. For one thing, the great majority of black people in this country were born HERE in this country, and have never even been to Africa...so how can you go BACK to someplace you've never been? Also, these ignorant people need a serious history/geography lesson...NOT ALL black people came to this country on slave ships from Africa. A VERY LARGE number of us were already here long before 1492 when Columbus supposedly "discovered" (he didn't discover sh*t) America. This is not my opinion, this is FACT, it is documented. There are several books written on this subject. 💯 Now, if you research the origin of white people, you'll find that they trace back to Europe. Hence the name "Europeans", as in the first settlers that arrived when Columbus came. More specifically, many originate from the Caucasus mountain region, where the term "Caucasian" derives from, located between Europe and Western Asia, between the Black Sea & the Caspian Sea. Therefore, white people have ZERO RIGHT to tell anyone else to leave a country, that they themselves are not Native to. 💯
As influencers, famous bloggers, celebrities, why must you bring other women down? • Why must you talk about their choice of clothing and their looks? •
Why must you make it harder for women to bring up their experiences of sexual harassment? Why not take the tine out instead to listen and learn? •
If you are the target of unnecessary comments, why must you reply with “its your problem you don’t have a hot body like I do”. Why resort to body shaming?
Recognise the privilege and power you have as a social media influencer - and be careful of what you say. Because, even if you don’t want that responsibility, millions of people look up to you and care about your opinions and hold them as their own. And you have to be more careful with, more respectful, more understanding, more empathetic.

I’ve had kind of a rough couple of weeks. Something was in the air or some energy needed to move through. Something. I didn’t listen to my normal number of pods because I missed some gym days and on the other days, I just needed to stare at my phone a bit. It’s all good. Energy moves. Emotions (e-motions) move. Grateful for the opportunity to move stuff out that no longer serves me and make room for grace and dignity. Dignity. Good word. Good practice. #thepowerofpod#podcastrecommendation#jackkornfield#dignity#grace#selfworth#listenandlearn
I have so many different things that I am working on right now and The Goal Digger Workshop is one of them!
I started this workshop back in May to show people how easy it was to visualize your dreams. I’ve been creating my own vision boards every year for the past 3 years and it actually works! I’m sure some of y’all are non-believers but it’s hard not to believe when you see your life shifting right before your eyes. Yes, your mindset is a very important part of it but as a visual learner, I have to see it right in front of me.
Join me and @thegoaldiggerworkshop on Sunday, October 21st for a day of listening and learning, honing in on your true purpose and bringing your vision to life ✨
The greatest miracle Christianity has achieved in America is that the black man in white Christian hands has not grown violent. It is a miracle that 22 million black people have not risen up against their oppressors – in which they would have been justified by all moral criteria, and even by the democratic tradition! It is a miracle that a nation of black people has so fervently continued to believe in a turn-the-other-cheek and heaven-for-you-after-you-die philosophy! It is a miracle that the American black people have remained a peaceful people, while catching all the centuries of hell that they have caught, here in white man’s heaven! The miracle is that the white man’s puppet Negro ‘leaders’, his preachers and the educated Negroes laden with degrees, and others who have been allowed to wax fat off their black poor brothers, have been able to hold the black masses quiet until now.
