Oftentimes there’s a dispute between Team Droid and Team Apple. We hold allegiance to brands that do not benefit us. While I often argue for Team Droid, I know that the manufacturers want our loyalty which lead to us spending our hard earned cash with them. This results in abundant profits for all manufactures and contracting funds for all of us consumers.
This blog is pointing out how Apple manipulated their consumers with the “No hacking hardware and software”. See the link below explaining what Apple said about the vulnerability of ALL of their iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers.
This is just food for thought, instead of arguing minutiae, let’s use our critical thinking and argument skills for improvement of more important issues.

Life sometimes gets in the way. A few days passed us by, but alas, I’m baaack!! Was I missed? Was the everyday Black History missed? Well, I’m ready to rock-and-roll again.
Until recently, I’ve not heard of Carlota Lukumi. So, let me share a life of what I learned. If you know more, please share.
She is also known as La Negra Carlota. She was forced into slavery in Cuba after being kidnapped from West Africa as a child. In 1843, she led a raid that freed dozens of slaves from captivity. Does she remind you of anyone?
She was captured a year after the revolt began. However, she was able to liberate slaves from many different plantations in the area.

You learned about Harriet Tubman, Frederic Douglass, and Sojourner Truth; but, have you learned about Martin Delany? He was an abolitionist, journalist, physician, writer, and arguably the first proponent of Black Nationalism.
If you are or have ever been a member or interested in Black Nationalism, you have him to thank. He joined integrated militia to help defend the Black community against White mob attacks.

Do you remember learning about the Olmecs in World History? Did itcrossyourmind that theymayhave been Black? Well, prepare to have your mind blown!
Urban Intellectuals added the Olmecs to Volume 1 of the Black History Flash Cards. They were the first great Mesoamerican civilization. Mesoamerica is present day Central America.
They were believed to be of African ancestry by African scholars and are heralded as one of the foundations of the book of Ivan Van Sertima entitled “They Came Before Columbus. The distinctly African features of a broad nose and thick lips led many to these conclusions.

Have you heard of wearable art? Well, Sister Jennah, the owner and operator of Tranquility Wearable Art creates one of a kind wearable pieces of clothing. These swimsuit pieces were hand crocheted.

Sister Jennah crafts great scarves and hats; gloves and socks. When I came across these pieces I felt compelled to share with others. Please visit and like the page.
