I usually don't get involved with politics, but the things I'm hearing coming from my community (black) is just sad and disturbing!
So let me explain something quickly in the 16th black servants were boarding slaving ships to England. Late 19th century slavery in a period of small scale was abolished 🙄World War One black people were used.
World war 2 same thing.
Britain needed working class citizens no no no they couldn't get the hand dirty so since most of the black immigrants died in wars they need to get new shipping therefore around the late 40s early 50s our parents/ grandparents came to the UK one of the ship was called the empire Windrush voluntarily to help Britain. We became the Britons wow thanks mate! 🙄🙄
That doesn't mean they accepted black people.
Now we got a similar issue BREXIT! And you black slaves descendants you have to nerve to support that moment!! No shame it's just so embarrassing! guessing deep down you still like to please your massa!
WAKE THE HELL UP!!

3rd of 3 sessions of the Fall 2018 Dharmanar - we’ll be finishing up with Ignorance at the Buddhist Church of Oakland this Saturday November 17 from 2-4 pm!
#Earlier this #week someone asked me how can you believe that #humans come from #monkeys
And #Adam and #Eve are false?
To answer that you should consider the fact you don't age 30 years older in one night but you age in 30 years 30 years older, homo spaiens are around 5000 years old but with didn't just appear in one night it took 5 #million years to become humans , we changed a lot through the natural #selection form something similar to chimpanzee in about 5 million years we become what we are because of #natural selection ..
Please just open your eyes and don't believe anything that is in your holy book , Maybe #Truth is not sweet as a lie but , truth opens your eye and only truth can #enable a life with #peace
Believe in things that are scientifically proven and correct and not any lie with #Logic of #ignorance

You have an ugly heart so ain’t no smile or Sephora gonna change that....grow up...you a mother...I’m farrrrr from perfect but I ain’t nuthin’ like you and I’m super ok with that....#disgustingbehavior#ignorance#andidontneedyourapproval
Something you #never want to see... Bite Quarantine💔😥 Poor Otis is on his 2nd, 10 day BQ. Both preventable, both because of human ignorance. This one set me back a bit😡 Most of us were taught at a young age to not put your fingers in an animals cage because you could get bit, right?!! So why do people still do it? Something I will NEVER wrap my mind around is people not only do it, but when they do and get bit, they then go tell🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ This blatant act of #ignorance in a blink of an eye changes everything for these dogs. Otis was just starting to respond to the work I was doing with him and now this😕 Well I’ve got news for you Otis, you’re not gonna mentally check out on us on my watch. You maybe quarantined to that kennel, it doesn’t mean your learning has to stop💪🏼Today, I went in after the shelter opened on purpose to use the foot traffic from people and dogs going in and out to teach Otis while he’s in his kennel. This giant goof is at the end that gets the most foot traffic going by. To know Otis is to know his brain is on go pretty much all the time when things around him are happening🤪 Look at him today learning to relax as both people and dogs go past him😍 Not only was I super proud of him, you can see it in his face he was proud of himself and relaxed❤️🐾 #otis#notgivingup#shelterdog#trainable#stilllearning#bethechange#onedogatatime#dog#dogs#dogbehavior#teach#show#train#bmod#behaviormodification#stateofmind#relax#mentalexhaustion A4111020
Anyone noticing a trend here? Because I certainly am. I know that this is a very small insignificant detail in the story, but why can they not get a simple fact straight? Being a large news company, you would think something as simple as counting blocks would be easy, but I guess not. I wonder how many other details have been ~distorted~
We live in the shadows
Where the songbird sings and the bells ring to bring us home
The lights that guide us go astray and the rope that binds us snaps
We guide ourselves in the blind
We discover ourselves in the night
Voicing our struggles to the wolf and the sheep and elephant and the mouse
To the roach that never peeps
And we weep
As we guide ourselves into the night blind
Ignorant people are dumb cowards. Why? Because they fear what they don’t understand, and refuse to do so. As a handicapped person I have always stood for those that couldn’t. I held my tongue today and it hurt. It reminded me of all the times as a kid that I was told I was “deaf and dumb”, “retarded” because I couldn’t understand what was said to me. Had it not been for my family I would not be here today, strong and smart and helping others. Ignorance and prejudice should never be tolerated, though you make have to pick your battles wisely. Had I not needed my job I surely would have packed my things and walked out, but not before lambasting this horrible, horrible person for their comments. Had they been directed at me I am not sure I would have held back. The older I get the less I am apt to let things be unsaid, no matter what residual damage it causes me. But I decided it was better to do a right than add to the wrongs. Www.ndss.org is an organization that provides assistance and advocacy for people with Down Syndrome. I chose to make a donation to them and would ask you if you wouldn’t mind doing the same. Thank you.
The Rule of Law is the supremcy of the law of any state or Nation above all entities of life, be it man, be it woman,be it positions and organizations(both Governmental and Non Governmental organizations).its the power that subjects all man to an enacted Law of a place equally, that's to say their is no difference between you (a civilian/a citizen of your place) and the Governor of that place, and the Senators... Etc
Do you actually know that we have the power to enforce this Rule of Law in our State(IMO STATE) and in our Nation NIGERIA... HOW WOULD THIS BE
It can only be done by your #Votes because come 2019 we must not be careless to vote in criminals into Government, men with criminal records... HOW THEN CAN WE RECONGNISE THIS CRIMINALS...
1.) Do not #vote any man that goes about sharing money in all their visits to both rural and urban areas... #WHY ...This because when they go into Government, they will first forget you because they have settled you.
Secondly they have to clear the agreement from where they have loaned the #millions and #billions thereby splitting away the National cake and reserving a bigger portion for themselves from what they spent on Campaigns and Election... By the #STATISTICS of #FACTS ... Let's imagine those #Politicians that have been spending money for years now and kept failing and let's take for insance, Politician A spent #10billion Naira in his first attempt to Rule in Government and lost and he tried again with reinforcements of #20billion Naira in his second attempt and wins... Do you actually think he won't first recover his #30billion Naira with calculated interests from the written agreement from the Loans and interest of maybe another #30billion Naira with their #Church_mind ... And now in that #30billion Naira is the wages Teachers, to civil servant to pensioners etc...
Pls #NIGERIANS don't you ever make the mistake of our father that happened in #wickedness and #ignorance ...
I heard from my mentor "that a Generation that does not know History will always repeat History". ~#Rev_Barr_Ikenna_Emmanuel

They say ignorance is bliss but who are they anyway?
Sure it feels good to know but the truth is we often don’t know. We are all ignorant about something and it is only by becoming aware of our ignorance that we can start to wake up.
Ignorance is a part of our existence but it becomes problematic when we feel we might be wrong but we continue to pretend to be right. When we don’t question any of our ideas, thoughts, beliefs or ways of living is when we truly become ignorant. -
There are some studies that indicate the more self dellusional someone is the more likely they are to be happy. Maybe this is true to some extent because becoming more aware is often painful. It means admitting you were wrong in certain situations and recognizing your flaws. -
Maybe if you’re goal is to be happy then you shouldn’t strive to become more aware but I don’t beileve this is true happiness. I believe true bliss can be found deep down inside us once we peel all the bullshit layers off.
Unreasonable joy is possible and I have experinced glimpses of it. This is the experience of being happy for no reason. The only way I can explain this is that peace, love & happiness is our most pure original state. It is our thoughts and stresses that cause this harmonious state to become lost and out of balance.
We can run away from life by over eating, over drinking, consuming mindless programming and of course indulging in our own ignorance. Or we can learn to sit with discomfort and uncertainty. We can learn to embrace the unknown and find deeper peace within. -
Hey but what do I know, maybe Ignorance is bliss. Afterall this is only an idea, a potentially ignorant one. 👁
Today I'm giving a shout out to YOUNG honest and good MEN. Those who have crossed my path and made kind and genuine impacts in my heart. I see your hustle. I see you striving. Young men with little or no start up given. Young men with start up funds given but maintaining and growing it. People make a fuss about people left inheritance but it's one thing to be given a kick start and another thing to maintain and grow what one has been given or inherited.
Today I'm thinking of young men without start up fund but hustling their way through every legal opportunity. I see you. My heart is thinking deeply of you today because few days ago I wondered how difficult it is to start from little or nothing in certain societies and yet smile as you journey through; and yet have laughter to share. I have been truly blessed to share space and cross path with some kind young men. To be in a society where you are expected to figure it all out because you are a man yet give your time and resources because many expect you to provide.
Today I'm thinking of my friends, the young men who have made me realise the difficulty in bearing that name - men. I'm thinking of honest young men who truly want to succeed to be a blessing.
This is for young men my age and a little bit older and a little bit younger not having all they wanted because they don't have all they need yet they still thrive and survive. .
