Why The Business of Black Pain Has To Stop Being The Preferred Currency For Clickbait [medium.com]
‘The share of women who earn more than their husbands, while still relatively small, is growing. When women do earn more, both husbands and wives seem uncomfortable — to the point of lying about it. ‘ [nytimes.com]
@NewBlackMan the reluctance of the lady to admit this objective truth is how we know that, yes, women can support (and sometimes simultaneously hate) patriarchy —capitalist patriarchy is really quite hard to beat which why we BM will always appear as losers
He made his name as one of the world’s top cardiology researchers when he discovered the gene that causes heart failure. [bit.ly]
Yes, white people, colonialism did set up administration and transport, but the main purpose was not distribution of wealth, but to allow the export of raw materials from Africa to ruling countries. Call it cynical pragmatism
@Ajairah1 do you have details of what the French did to one or more of their colonial infrastructures on independence? …before they left they blew shit up, destroying that infrastructure
Invasion and increasing desertification drove many Egyptians south and westward. The Zulu report they themselves were Kemites who left the north many ages ago, seeking greener lands. Diop was able to identify Egyptian linguistic roots in his own Senegalese dialect of Wolof [twitter.com]
@Ajairah1 We should always remember the priority pre-Islamic/pre-Christian African peoples placed on matrilineal heritage when we speak of these things.
Telling African Americans to stop talking about Egypt is like telling them to stop talking about racism, which not-so-coincidentally factors in here. In other words, They should stop talking about Egypt when non-blacks get over themselves and stop trying to take credit for it. [twitter.com]
@Ajairah1 It is also _exactly_ like telling European-trained academics to stop talking about the ancient Greeks (while, BTW, modern Greeks are treated like shit).
@Ajairah1 Yes and Diop left us with a scientific basis for Nilotic Pan Africanism while the European tradition of Greek academic heritage is almost entirely political and colonial revisionist.
That’s 91 degrees Fahrenheit. Inside the arctic circle. This is record breaking heat for Finland. [twitter.com]

Humans are hyper sensitive to it, capable of detecting at a concentration of 5 parts per trillion.
It’s theorised in our evolutionary past this helped us seek out water.☔️⛈️
Google has been useless in finding literally every service we’ve booked in connection with our new home, from locksmiths to AC repair to movers. @googlemaps is completely owned by referral scammers in those categories.
@RowenaMonde I’m that case, it might be a hydration seduction issue (colder climes trick you into drinking less water)? Science is telling me that the sun closer to the equator (but ozone layering might be weaker in Canada?).
@KinteSpace I think the sun must be stronger in intensity in these parts. I had no such problems in the Caribbean or Africa!
@RowenaMonde as a native Californian i cannot relate and actually _should_ be held at a distance; on the flip side: eating blackstrap molasses has helped me with dealing with what I call “cold” weather—tree metals in the blood
every time i hear the term “terraforming” i think of the original peoples of the North American continent: [arstechnica.com]

We must always resist categorizations and breakthrough the constraints. Never tire. “As an artist she transcended constraints, and as a woman of color, she confronted a society that wished to categorize her.” [nytimes.com]
This is a picture of “Jesus” that my aunt has in her room. When will Blk people let this man go? 🤦🏿♀️🤦🏿♀️🤦🏿♀️🤦🏿♀️ [twitter.com]
Why there is nobody talking about the person who is responsible for the nature of this life in Afrika? Let us face it: our lives are miserable, laborious, exploited, and short. We are born into poverty and suffering, we grow and die in poverty and suffering. [twitter.com]
@NewBlackMan @Afrosexology @broadly very surprised that the Vice title fails to read “…one _female_ orgasm at a time” or at least “…_simulataneous_…” otherwise these kids ain’t gettin’ nuttin’ revolutionary done
young bruh, my Black male teen years were dominated by Prince: the only physically imposing/dominating things my body ever wanted to do to a woman has been either about her rescue from a burning building or her multiple orgasms—otherwise, my body has been absent, wasted
@NewBlackMan I daresay and fully expect to be attacked when I alter the headline: The Self-Organization of Black Women is the Savior of This Country—and it made it haven for immigrants the world over
American white people really hate being called “white people” [vox.com]
@NewBlackMan …some may hate being placed in a group as most institutionally-encouraged egocentric people are but let’s just count how many times we hear the phrase, “I’m white.”
