"Whenever I use BLACK it relates to some history of Africans in that particular place. It’s the idea of the color BLACK as a metaphor, or as a representation of African-Americans. It’s the notion of BLACK- BLACKNESS - and all its other meanings in relation to the history of race..."

- Fred Wilson

"Most of my fortitude to continue doing the work comes from the moral outrage I feel about the injustices that Black people endure disproportionately daily."

- N. Abdul-Wakil

"In the end, what matters is not skin shade but pan-African consciousness. Loving your complexion, your nose, lips, hair length and texture, no matter what the politics or trends decide, and simply be. That's the problem with us (African folks). We're still learning how to love ourselves. So used to glorifying others and putting others first..."

It's About Time We Forgot 9/11...
By Wise Senator (An EXCERPT)

It's About Time We Forgot 9/11...
by Wise Senator (EXCERPT)

No, I’m not kidding. Nor am I trying to be provocative. We need to forget about September 11, 2001.

I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of seeing those planes hit the Twin Towers, year after year after year.

In ten years, “remembering” 9/11 has produced two wars, massive debt, national paranoia, Islamophobia, legislative fiat to violate our civil liberties, and media hysterics. “Remembering” 9/11 isn’t about honoring those innocent lives that perished; it’s about flexing our emotionally and politically reactionary muscles. It’s about maintaining the pain.

Our media and elected officials have used this “remembrance” in order to manipulate our heart-strings and exploit our fear. We can not allow them to continue to profit from our grief. It is time to forget 9/11.

We don’t need to “remember” a tragedy in order to take care of business. For years it’s been argued that keeping 9/11 in mind should be a fundamental element of our foreign policy. As a result, we’ve heavily invested in wars overseas which at first seemed to give the American people an emotional fix, but quickly descended into full-blown affliction. The war rationale is now as transparent as Plexiglass.
