Black History: Once Upon A Time In America

Years after slavery, African-Americans are still struggling to be real Americans

Elizabeth Ann Eckford, a student, and a key figure at the Little Rock Central High School is pictured being followed, booed and yelled at by a mob of whites. She was among the group of the nine African-American students famous for having desegregated the school in 1957. A closer look at the lady on the right, you can see the chilling, unreasonable dislike in her eyes. This reflects on the history of Apartheid Education in America.

In the deep sea, the big fish has no sympathy for the helpless small fish. They intimidate the small ones and always try to eat them up. That was once the hostile situation in America years back, in every sector, including the educational sector, against African-Americans. 

It’s very embarrassing to see such images in America, a country that  believes in democracy, above all they say: In God We Trust.

The more disturbing factor is, America provided  a “safe haven” in the United States for Nazis criminals and their collaborators after World War II, yet subjected African-Americans to abuse, discrimination, lynching, experimentation, and slavery.

Abolition of slavery is a fact recorded in history, but the reality is, it still exists in many places around the globe, including America today because we live in a violent and corrupt society.

How many years now did America start fighting against an illegal drug entering its sovereignty? Because of corruption, the country is plagued by cocaine and other dangerous drugs, drastically taking its toll on many citizens.

There was a time, if you are an honest hard worker, with distinguished achievements in the society, you will be awarded, but now those who commit serious crimes against humanity are those that receive that awards, including the Nobel Prize. Among the ring of liars, if you want to remain different and live in truth, you will eventually become an enemy.

Do you feel this world is okay? Are you happy about the turmoil and the path of doom the world has taken? Why politicians fighting for power when they don’t have any means to save this world? Nothing in this world seems to be going better or doing well. Everything has taken the wrong path.

Whether Africans were used as Guinea pigs in testing drugs, whether Aids, Ebola, Lassa and other deadly diseases, were bio-weapons against Africans to depopulate the continent, or whether African-Americans were used for experimentation, the Black man has survived today. That power wasn’t strong enough to wipe out the black race.

Black history is a sad song and a rough road. Even though it’s like an image hanging on the wall, the Black man should change that sad song to a happy song and straighten up that rough road ahead of him. We should let go hatred, jealousy, racism, racial discrimination and hypocrisy to embrace love in our community.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” —I Corinthians 13:4-8a.

She Has No Wings But Wants To Fly

Bitter relationships

A bitter relationship is like a toothache in the middle of the night, the experience is sleepless nights.

“None of my boyfriends stayed with me longer than a year. I have already dated five men, but all of them are gone and still I’m single at  thirty-five.” That’s the statement that pretty lady said to her friend. 

Her friend listens to her with emotions, because she could clearly see how the destructive love life of Tamma, has taken its toll on her best friend. Yes! Tamma has been Paulina’s best friend for over a decade but both have problems they weren’t ready to give up. Pride!

There is no gentleman ready to date a lady full of pride and arrogance. Many don’t know how pride can be destructive. Even though men like to date beautiful ladies, they pray to meet someone humble and submissive.

That doesn’t mean that they want someone weak to dominate. Men can’t stand women that are not ready to accept the mistakes they do. Men are not perfect too and ready to accept mistakes, but many times women are not prepared to accept mistakes because of pride.

It’s a big mistake if you think the dress you wear makes you a lady. Humbleness, respect, smile and good character, are some of the qualities men looking for in women.

Believe me, if you are a woman and don’t have any of these qualities, you are bound to face many obstacles in your relationship. Don’t let your beauty deceive you. You will surely get the man you are looking for today, but you’ll find yourself alone on bed tomorrow.

No matter how beautiful and intelligent you are, don’t let pride overtakes you. Without wings, you may feel like a bird flying high, but at the end of the day, you’ll find yourself at the same place you started. Do away with pride and arrogance and enjoy a better relationship.

How Do You Envisage Your Future In 2016?

Happy New Year

What do we learn in every old year to live better in the new year?

Within a relatively short period from December 31, 2015, to January 1, 2016, many people couldn’t make this cross-over. Through various reasons, including sickness, they lost the battle to see the year 2016.

There is no doubt that we all had both  positive and negative experiences last year, but since you’ve made it to the new year, what are your hopes, dreams, and aspirations? I strongly believe that your dreams can be a reality in the year 2016.

How prepared to improve the soured relationship with the members of your family? How prepared to change your bad habits to enjoy your professional career? How prepared to be humble and respectful, to get the right gentleman or lady as your partner?

How prepared to make this world a better place for our present and future generation, in a world many think violence, crime, and terrorism, are the only solutions for common problems? We can’t remake the world, but our good deeds can change it.

There is every reason to be happy among those that made it to the new year. Your success, happiness, destiny and good health, are in your own hands. Don’t commit any crime when you know that you will be punished and don’t live in the realms of destructive drugs when you know may affect your health.

Instead of blaming others for the destruction of the world, we should take it upon ourselves to restore our nation’s dignity. “Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.” 2 Corinthians 13:11.

Who Says Michelle Obama Can’t Rap?

Michelle 2Original article published in ‘Huffingtonpost’ by Samantha Guff

As if we didn’t already think Michelle Obama was the chillest FLOTUS yet, her new rap video will make you love her even more (and want to go to college).

The first lady teamed up with “Saturday Night Live” comedian Jay Pharoah to drop a beat about the benefits of higher education.

“If you wanna fight crime, you should go to college/If you wanna write rhymes fill your head with knowledge/If you wanna stare at grass don’t go to college, but for everything else you should go to college,” Obama expertly raps alongside Pharoah, from a recording studio that appears to be inside the White House.

The video, fittingly produced by College Humor, is for Obama’s “Better Make Room” campaign that aims to inspire teens aged 14 to 19 to go to college. Only question is, what do Sasha and Malia think about this one?

When Will I See You Pippi Longstocking?

Images of the beautiful chapters of Pippi Longstocking’s life

One of the favourite children’s program channeled worldwide under different languages is Inger Nilsson, alias Pippi Longstocking. The cute little redheaded girl from Sweden, moves into her father’s cottage Villa Villekula, and meets her next door neighbours Tommy and Annika.

The face of wonderful little Pippi, is still shown all over the world, but one will be surprise to see the beautiful chapters of Pippi’s life, as she grows from little naughty girl to a real lady and then to her ripe age.

As an adult, I love watching Pippi too wuth the children. She has a wonderful horse, mouse and monkey, but what I like most about her, is her pointed rough old shoes. The above photographs are some of Pippi’s from a young girl to adulthood.

She is still beautiful, do you agree with me? If I get the opportunity one day, I would love to visit her to get a portion of her magic wand, to lift up heavy objects, since she could lift up a whole horse. 

Mugabe in Artificial Hair And Ear Rings?

Mugabe 2

Taking a first look at the picture, one may think the president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, is in artificial hair or wig. In fact, the president is not in any false hair, there is a lady close behind him whose hair  has completely swallowed the head of the president. Have a Happy Weekend.

What Will You Do When A Married Woman Is Interested In You?

“How would you judge it, when a married woman wants to sleep with you,  a blessing, evil or temptation?”

About fourteen years ago, I made an advert in a local newspaper in Antwerp, Belgium, looking for a job as a cleaner because cleaning is one of the easiest jobs to get if one wants to be financially independent as quickly as possible. (Later the Belgian government noticed it and blocked the illegal work by introducing cleaning payment cheques through work agencies) I had a good response and started working for four married women.

When a man is around a woman, one needs to be conscious, because some women are very attractive and tempting. The beautiful dress they wear and the expensive perfumes they use, add glamour to their beauty, which could sweep a man off his feet if you are not the type hard to fight temptation. There is no way a fowl can pass maize without swallowing it. I don’t blame Bill Clinton, Jeffery Archer, Mike Tyson, Tiger Woods and many others for their inability to resist the taste of the juicy fruit. All came crashing down because of a woman.

One of the women I was working for, husband works outside Antwerp. Being a housewife, she thought she could cheat on her husband with me. It may be that I am completely wrong, she hadn’t those intentions. Probably she was just trying to see if I would yield to her demands to determine if I am a dangerous man in her house, in order to kick me out immediately. In the first week, I started cleaning her house, there isn’t a single day passing by without her touching my buttocks. She comes very close behind me touches my butt and leaves.

Saskia (not her real name) was a very beautiful and attractive lady. It’s hard to resist the temptation of giving her what she wants. I stood firm not to enter into her tempting ‘Golden box,’ yet I was scared to death to tell her to stop touching my buttocks. Besides, her husband was very friendly to me, there is no way I’m going to do this. It’s completely wrong to sleep with another man’s wife. I would not be happy if someone does that to me. After the continuation of ‘buttocks touching’ for two weeks without response, she stopped.

I gave a big sigh of relief, unknowing she has other plans. On the first floor of the building was a library. Usually, I take all the books and dust the shelves in the cleaning process. She knows that I clean the bookshelves every week, so she printed a colored photograph of a man inserting his manhood into a lady’s ‘golden box’ and hid it at a place where I can easily reach when cleaning the books. More than dozen times, I took the picture and watched, asking myself, Lord what a temptation? I refused to sleep with her.

The third temptation happened on a very sad day, September 11, 2001, when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center. While I glued myself to the corner of the sitting hall listening to the shocking news, she invited me to join her on the sofa and I declined. “You are a married woman who wore a ring,” I told her. From that day I gained my freedom. We became good friends and she liked me more like a brother.

She gave me a key to her house to clean weekly without disturbing her if she is in bed. But one day something went terribly wrong. Saskia forgets that she has given me a key to her house. She wakes one morning and finds a dark figure in her kitchen. I have no words to explain what followed. She screamed calling God to come to her rescue. This is a woman who doesn’t even believe in God. I was sad and upset. I gave back her key that very day.

I worked for her for five years and quit because I got a full-time work and it became difficult to handle both. She was highly disappointed when I decided to leave. I want her to be happy, so I went to her place with a friend to work for her. She rejected him outright. I took another friend and she also opposed him. I gave up but she didn’t take it kindly. She sent me a disappointing mail of neglecting her, calling me a bad person, after all, that she has done for me. I apologized and everything became normal.
