To All The Girls…

Categories: Blog, Multi Media Gallery, Video | Posted by: TastyKeish

What a time to be alive Black Girl.

It’s 2016 and you are finally being heralded.

It’s 2016 and they can hear you say “No don’t touch my hair!”

It’s 2016 and you come in brown, chocolate, dark chocolate, ebony, caramel, and cafe au lait.

It’s 2016 and you call on spirits and make noise and rumble the Earth when you walk.

It’s 2016 and you suck your beautiful teeth and roll your brown eyes because you can.

It’s 2016 and we love each other Black Girl.

It’s 2016 and we will not be unseen.

On Black Pride and the Internet… (My Beyonce Post pt 2)

Categories: Blog, Media, Uncategorized | Posted by: TastyKeish

The internet is helluva place.

People are constantly debating about how much more right they are than everyone else at any given time. I always feel weird about facebook shares like the one that went viral because in my mind it’s just me speaking common sense.

Then you realize that not everyone measures their common sense with the same ruler. You also realize that perhaps you have a voice for people that can’t speak up or won’t. A repost or like could be their way of showing support if they are at a conservative job or their pages are overrun by over zealous family members.

You never know. 22,000 Likes and almost 4,ooo shares can’t be wrong.

So, I speak up more about topics of Black pride, LGBTQ issues, mental health, self- care and anything else that’s important to me. And when you get a chance to take the conversation off of facebook to a national news outlet like the Huffington Post, you do just that. Writer, Shanita Hubbard asked me some follow up questions that allowed me to delve deeper into racism, feminism, activism and more in the aftermath of Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance.

Other news this week in #peakBlackness, Kendrick Lamar’s performance at the 2016 Grammy Awards solidified this as the best Black History Month that ever existed. To which I shared on facebook:

 

James Brown , Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar, Public Enemy, and to all my artists friends using their platforms to shake up the the status quo.

I don’t care what led you to do it.

I care that you did something at all.

Thank you.

My Beyonce post…

Categories: Blog, Media | Posted by: TastyKeish

After doing the morning show today, I had more thoughts about this whole Beyonce/Superbowl thing. I was miffed AF at people that couldn’t see a Black Warrior Woman in all her glory celebrating the beauty of Black culture.

People worried about modes of dress, language, what she does with her money, white people want to boycott, black people are divided (she’s not doing enough or she’s trying to hard, etc).

To all that I say:

Here is my original post from my personal fb page on 2/8/16:

I don’t know what ya’ll want from anyone. 

Powerful Black Woman uses her image to bring unapologetically Black images and statements to a usually White forum. That’s not enough.
Makes a fund for the children of Flint, MI. That’s not enough.
Has been making financial contributions to#BlackLivesMatter and other movements. (How do you think Deray and them get to go all over the country to be the mouth pieces??) But, that’s not enough.
Celebrates girl power in a patriarchal world while in heels and spandex. That’s not “right/proper” or enough.
Makes millions of us feel good about ourselves daily. That’s not enough.
Is the epitome of hard work and persistence. That’s not enough.
Exposed millions to the 50th Anniversary of the Black Panthers movement. That’s not enough.
She might not be your cup of tea.
She might not be doing it how you prefer.
But she is ENOUGH.
 
PS: I don’t care if you like/don’t like her music. Save that for your own timeline. I’m from Brooklyn. I deal in #facts.

You know you that bitch when you cause all this conversation.
