When I met this man I called him a #lovewarrior on sight...
I stand with that statement and his character and the energy and light he brings to the world...
Abbay was arrested for defending his roommate from an abuser, and is facing charges.
Please contribute if you can to the #crowdfunding#love for @hailesupreme
He is probably one of the most non- violent people I’ve ever met, FRR...so if he used #force it was for the good of another human being...and his honour and character should be defended..
#share#repost#contribute#redistribute#makeofferings#prayers and #visions for the charges to be dropped and that he get the legal team he needs to fight the charges properly
#uplift this beautiful human and don’t allow the #justhis JUSTHIS system to take the #freedom of someone defending a woman from abuse and brutality.
His contribution to the world of #music#art and #livelove are literally unparalleled ....
#support#hailesupreme and his beautiful life...

We have to do a better job of supporting each other. There are plenty of us who go out of our way to support each other, but there also a lot of us who just want to make money off of the culture. We live in a Global world that isn’t just Black or White. It’s very important to learn other languages like Chinese and have business skills so that our best interest isn’t left out and other people can’t capitalize off of our contributions. There are good in bad in all people and making necessary deals with the right people is not the same as being pushed out of Jamaica, but the wrong ones will take everything . Honestly Black American and Jamaican Culture are the most commercialized cultures. People who are not of the culture feel that fake Rasta caps with fake locs are acceptable cause anything for profit . At some point we have to be gate keepers and say no. You can’t write for Iggy Azalea on one hand and then complain about prejudice on the other.
Yesterday was our first offering for @thesanctuaryinthecityclt.
It was more than I could have imagined. When Christy Lee and I first met for breakfast to talk about a shared pull to create healing spaces for POC, I could not have imagined the joy and gratitude that would have filled me yesterday. .
We have been building our vision for over a year now. And we have so much more unfolding to make manifest AND yesterday was the proof that it has not been in vain. It was the first glimpse of building something new for us, by us.
We are still in the work of fundraising, curating offerings and moving through this creation. Please consider supporting our efforts and vision in any way you can. More at thesanctuaryinthecity.org
Today is our first offering from @thesanctuaryinthecityclt . We are grateful for the support that has flowed in since we began this work over a year ago. It has been divine and we only see more and more on the horizon. If you are a POC in Charlotte consider joining us on Sunday at 12pm until 4pm for an afternoon of workshops, restorative yoga, meditation, gentle yoga class & community activities. It is completely free. Childcare is provided.
