Baller Alert, Black History Month, and Memes: Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts- blogged by- @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that RubyBridges, now 62 and the first African American child to attend an all-white public school, was born the same year that the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decided to desegregate the schools? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Ruby was in kindergarten, she was one of many African-American students in New Orleans who were chosen to take a test determining whether or not she could attend a white school. It is said the test was written to be especially difficult so that students would have a hard time passing. The idea was that if all the African-American children failed the test, New Orleans schools might be able to stay segregated for a while longer. Ruby lived a mere five blocks from an all-white school, but attended kindergarten several miles away, at an all-black segregated school. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1960, Ruby Bridges' parents were informed by officials from the NAACP that she was one of only six African-American students to pass the test. Ruby would be the only African-American student to attend the William Frantz School, near her home, and the first black child to attend an all-white elementary school in the South. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The image of this small black girl being escorted to school by four large white men (pictured above) inspired Norman Rockwell to create the painting "The Problem We All Must Live With," which graced the cover of Look magazine in 1964.

Assassination, Future, and Malcolm X: Today is the 52nd anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X. He lost his life fighting for justice and equality in America. It was yesterday but so what. Malcolm X quotes mean just as much now as they did 50 years ago "Concerning nonviolence: It is criminal to teach a man not to defend himself, when he is the constant victim of brutal attacks. It is legal and lawful to own a shotgun or a rifle. We believe in obeying the law." "It doesn't mean that I advocate violence, but at the same time, I am not against using violence in self-defense. I don't call it violence when it's self-defense, I call it intelligence." "Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today." "Look at yourselves. Some of you teenagers, students. How do you think I feel and I belong to a generation ahead of you - how do you think I feel to have to tell you, 'We, my generation, sat around like a knot on a wall while the whole world was fighting for its hum an rights - and you've got to be born into a society where you still have that same fight.' What did we do, who preceded you ? I'll tell you what we did. Nothing. And don't you make the same mistake we made...." "Our objective is complete freedom, justice and equality by any means necessary." "The day that the black man takes an uncompromising step and realizes that he's within his rights, when his own freedom is being jeopardized, to use any means necessary to bring about his freedom or put a halt to that injustice, I don't think he'll be by himself." "If violence is wrong in America, violence is wrong abroad. If it is wrong to be violent defending black women and black children and black babies and black men, then it is wrong for America to draft us, and make us violent abroad in defense of her. And if it is right for America to draft us, and teach us how to be violent in defense of her, then it is right for you and me to do whatever is necessary to defend our own people right here in this country." "I am not a racist. I am against every form of racism and segregation, every form of discrimination. I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color." -Malcolm X chakabars

Community, Memes, and Too Much: Them: Why Do You Post So Much "Black Stuff" My Answer @the original people Happy earthday Nina Simone. Are you being useful to your people, your culture and yourself? Are you nourishing your temple with alkaline, electrical life foods. Are you teaching others what you know, not just for a fee, because the divine knowledge bestowed upon you didn't cost you anything. Are you building with your people, or are you only investing in other communities, we aren't all one big happy community, if we were then Africans wouldn't have and own the least money, resources and power globally. Are you practicing health care not sick care... don't only eat well when you are sick, food is medicine, medicine is food. If you aren't part of the solution you are part of the problem. What are you doing to better yourself so that you can be useful to your culture? Are you practising group economics? Are you practicing self (knowledge of) education. What are you going to leave behind for your children, they can't eat Instagram pictures. Having a "good body" is not a good enough reason for existing, who are you uplifting. Do you spend too much time on your phone and not enough time bettering yourself. You know you need to stretch, you know you need to workout more, you know you need to meditate, you know you need to work on your relationships with your family. Are you going to have an amazing year? It won't just happen, you need to be proactive. What are you doing for the people where you live? Are you going to stop having sex with random, trying to find love without spirituality. Are you trying your hardest to be the best human being you can be? I am, that is why I am always happy ❤ chakabars
