We Were Created to Express Ourselves

Today in our society, there is a stigma associated with expressing one’s thoughts and opinions, especially if you are a part of the Black & Latino community. I was inspired by a conversation with a friend of mine that explained to me the Kaepernick situation that took place. A simple bodily gesture done during a symbolic ritual that caused an uproar in the nation. Whether you agree with his statement is not for me to argue. However, I will argue that he does have the right to EXPRESS himself.

#TakeAKnee

My personal schedule has been hellacious recently managing classes, personal health, and writing. I have about six posts that I’ve started and not finished that are things I just desire to express myself on. So, I pledge to continue to post as often as I can. The most relevant today is the protest, my good brother, Colin Kaepernick started in fall of 2016.

Hurricane Irma: Dancing with the Storm continued…

Packing my suitcases was the most extremely stressful part of this experience. Time was escaping me and I grew frantic trying to think of everything I had to do. My blue suitcase contained my valuables: Passport, Social Security Card, My mother’s gold necklace, pictures of me as a child and of my family, and my Xbox of course!

H.E.R. Vol 2 & H.I.M. Vol 2

The music business is a fickle industry. The way to attack marketing and creation of music is a very fluid in approach and can easily fail horribly. After my last review of H.I.M. and H.E.R., I enjoyed both projects but was unsure of the places H.E.R. and H.I.M. would fill. Less than six months later, I feel confident that both H.E.R. and H.I.M. have potential to be here to stay.

Kenneka, Domestic Abuse, and Forgotten Black Women

I’m just writing this because it has been sitting on my heart. I’ve been reading over the past few days about Kenneka Jenkins and her death (Link at the Bottom). The saddest part about this story is that it is not surprising or new the details to culminated in her death. To avoid posting graphic images or talking about unknown things until more information is revealed, I want to talk about some recent thoughts on some serious topics. [Trigger Warning]
