Trump Who? Here's Why I Don't Give a Damn.

I know that we as a nation are on the heels of a presidency that was unfavored by over 50% of the voting population. I also know that we as a nation are going to wake up in mourning because the Obamas are leaving the white house. It sucks. There is really no right way to say it. We will miss them for who they are and what they stand for. We can also remember how every time Barack walked off of Air Force or stepped to the podium behind the presidential seal, dreams were no longer deferred. It is okay to grieve. Not for long, because quite frankly, there isn’t much time to do so.

The world is changing fast! Tomorrow what we knew about how the government worked could be a recent memory.. I am not here to fear monger, it is just the truth. Healthcare is changing, the stock markets are fluctuating, protests are looming and all throughout this process children are watching. Capt Twitter Fingers, The President of Scam University, Alleged Rapist, Mr. Pussy Grabber is going to be the 45th President of the United States. TOMORROW.

He is going to be boarding the same plane that the OBAMAS did, sleeping in the same bedroom, with just as much access to the military that he or any other president had. He is “our leader” now. (Excuse the vomit). I know everyone is saying,” Oh he is not my President.“ but guess what? Go visit another country after tomorrow and they will dispute your theory.. These are the undeniable facts.

So what do we do now? I have a few theories. Since it is also the same week as Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday, The Birth of Nation film was released this week, and Hidden Figures is number one in the box office; I can’t help but notice the symbiotic echoes of unity, change, and forward progression from our forefathers and former leaders.

We cannot give up. Our children (literally and figuratively in my case), still need our help. Our blood is still in the streets and our souls are still broken. We cannot, sit down and throw our hands up because an orange man is supposed to be our representation now. We have the tools be the change, to build our wealth, and to be our own leadership. More than we ever did, we can do this for ourselves.

We don’t have to to sit and be shocked. Shocked for what?? When are people are losing love for themselves? When our median average of annual salary is approximately $8k and $71k among White Americans. We have spent too much time being shocked and feeling sorry for ourselves. Try a new thing! Create, Inspire, be an example. Invest your money, stop buying takeout food, jewelry and shit we do not need. Feed the homeless. APOLOGIZE WHEN YOU ARE WRONG. Please. USE CONDOMS. Be a leader. Do not let the dried blood on the leaves of our ancestors and our children be in vain.

Truthfully, this has nothing to do with white people, or any other nationality for that matter. It has everything to do with us and what is urgent for our communities. No one will ever give us anything.

This is a call to action as much as it is a plea for my people to be great. BLACK is amazing. There is no limit to that and it is about time we stopped watching the world lap us.

Perk Up Buttercup

By Capt SistaGurl  On the very worst days of our lives, we tend to revert to the lower versions of ourselves. “This is happening to me because I must’ve done something to deserve this. “ I’m being mistreated because I forgot to xyz. “ Fun fact: every action does have an equal reaction. However, all wrongdoing doesn’t necessarily stem from your poor deeds. It can often occur based on your poor mindset.  Picture me saying this loud and reverently like Eric Thomas. Bad things happen to good people all the time, it’s not about what happened to you, it’s about YOUR behavior afterwards. (Y’all can hear him right?)  Let’s proceed still in that voice, you get to choose how and if you will survive something.  You are granted the right to look at yourself in the mirror and say, man this sucks but I GOT ME, and I got this. I can and will overcome this.  Back to my voice, you can also say nothing to yourself in that mirror, forgo it and showers, and wallow. I want to be clear every now and again a

Ladies, Make Him Act Right! (From a man's perspective)

So ladies, we have a tendency to get advice from women about MEN far more than we should. So I have a special treat today. We're going to get some advice on how to entice, encourage, and exalt a man from you guested it.. A MAN. I picked one, who speaks with the sole purpose to educate. So some of his language may be a bit harder than you're used to but.. you will not be disappointed. Capt SistaGurl Out!  Introducing Tikko Brohey  Ladies do you feel like “dudes ain’t shit” or “dudes don’t act right?” Have you ever thought about the things you do that contribute to that? The answer is probably not.  Now granted there are dudes out there who just ain’t shit, and that’s just what it is. Majority of men are good men. But his partner can often determine just how good he'll actually be. Every woman deserves to be treated like a queen, as every man deserves to be treated like a king. The disconnect comes from when there’s an argument all the King and Queen shit is out the
