Set Us Free

Best Blogger Tips

Often times, it is the imagined lifelines that hold us in place. Stifles our freedom. It binds us. Sometimes it takes an outsider to help us know how we can be free. They remove the unnecessary lifeline we cling to.

TO BE FREE~ Once there was a king who received a gift of two magnificent falcons. They were peregrine falcons, the most beautiful birds he had ever seen. He gave the precious birds to his head falconer to be trained.

Months passed, and one day the head falconer informed the king that though one of the falcons was flying majestically, soaring high in the sky, the other bird had not moved from its branch since the day it had arrived.

The king summoned healers and sorcerers from all the land to tend to the falcon, but no one could make the bird fly.

He presented the task to the member of his court, but the next day, the king saw through the palace window that the bird had still not moved from its perch.

Having tried everything else, the king thought to himself, “May be I need someone more familiar with the countryside to understand the nature of this problem.” So he cried out to his court, “Go and get a farmer.”

In the morning, the king was thrilled to see the falcon soaring high above the palace gardens. He said to his court, “Bring me the doer of this miracle.”

The court quickly located the farmer, who came and stood before the king. The king asked him, “How did you make the falcon fly?”

With his head bowed, the farmer said to the king, “It was very easy, your highness. I simply cut the branch where the bird was sitting.”

We are all made to fly — to realize our incredible potential as human beings. But at times we sit on our branches, clinging to the things that are familiar to us. The possibilities are endless, but for most of us, they remain undiscovered. We conform to the familiar, the comfortable, and the mundane. So for the most part, our lives are mediocre instead of exciting, thrilling and fulfilling. Let us learn to destroy the branch of fear we cling to and free ourselves to the glory of flight!

Why You Mad Though? It's a Card Game, Right? #BeadsOnAString #racecard #racerelations #lifenotagame #growup

Best Blogger Tips

For those who don't know, this is my rant blog. I try not to visit it often, but...
Humph, saw this picture on a friend's post and had to laugh. So, this what THEY think the card looks like? Well, of course "they" do. They are the designer of the deck. Remove that qualifier (If Person of Color & the O.J) and it can be for the White race,too. I can definitely see the resemblance. And we all know, people have died for the Black card.
To those who feel superior, but are just plain old prejudice, racist- why you mad, though?
Why, when we join in the game, y'all get mad?
 Why,  when we pull out that card, y'all gave us- y'all try to shut us down by shouting out "Here comes the race card!"  "Somebody always trying to make it about race? " -Because it usually is about race.

F'ck yeah,  we gonna play the card. Slap it in your face with the quickness. Let you see where it's the appropriate time to show you your face. Let you know, we hear, read, and see the bull, the bias, the double standard and we're calling you out on it. Consider it your "go fish card, " your second chance to dig in your deck and get it right.
How you ignore the fact you have your own card?  Whether it's believed or not, privilege reigns. Doesn't mean it makes you rich, but it definitely gives a free pass or an easy road to somethings. Isn't that a part of life. 

That's not our black a**es you're seeing, it's the mirror reflecting your prejudice and ignorance. You filled our hands with these cards,  while you've scrambled to hold every other card, to your advantage. And now, you're afraid you're losing.
So, why you getting mad, though? We didn't start the damned game, pre-label the cards- hell even ask to play.
We were dragged here, slapped in the middle of the game and then given(what you have falsely believed was the worst hand) the cards to play. Oh, as an addendum to this game-that card y'all keep tossing in the air about Your People SOLD you; tear that sh*t up. Whitewashed history. Any fool making themselves feel good about that lie is...  a fool. You can't sale what no one buys. JUSTIFICATION-DENIED!

Ignore and belittle it if you want, but it's everywhere. That disregard. In every area, where we as Blacks have caught up, reworked,  invented, mastered (with ease and dignity) - some whiny assed, ego dragged racist "in the guise of shedding light," or in pure hatred and jealousy- tries to destroy it.
When it comes to media and the Internet, whether we succeed, fail, or make a mistake in judgement - we are illuminated with the biggest light, chased with pitchforks, and torn to shreds. And then you want to tell us to leave OUR country!! I love when I hear that ignorance.
Wait for it, because here comes the biggest race card ever SLAVES, BLACKS, POC, BUILT THIS COUNTRY. BAAM !! - why would we leave OUR country we were born in, died for, and built? Y'all can tear that sh*t filled card up, too.

When the name of the game is and has always been Bash, Eliminate, Hold Back the Ni**er, the deck is stacked with all the tiny easily debunked white lies, the trump card is dealt and every color of the rainbow pulls up a chair and joins the game. The goal- well, we already know the name of the game.
 I'm not even gonna say anything about the other POC at the table who know damn well they have the same race card tucked between those silent fingers. Some even have the dagger card, they use to try and poke holes in the back of the Black man's card in order to make themselves look better and feel better-it's an illusion. 
They let you play along and then take it away with a few slight of hand tricks. I like to think of it as, the dumbass  or the two faced card. You people are killing yourselves. Instead of uniting and fighting for a common goal, ending discrimination, you try sharing cards with people who could care less about you.

So, y'all stop being mad,  because you can bet- we're gonna use that  card as our Ace in the hole. Society may see the black ass of a donkey or feel safe believing they've doled us a joker, but they're wrong. We hold nothing but Kings and Queens. And, even though you can't see it, because you're focusing on all the negative, swallowing (by the crab filled bucket) what media feeds you, we fight for every success we achieve and win every time.

If you want to see racism end,
  • STOP pretending it isn't there. 
  •  STOP holding on to the deck so hard and toss every last one of the cards. Unlabel, take away that hyphen between every race of American.
  • STOP pretending racism is confined to one race and that we don't all have a play in it. 
  • STOP labeling entire groups of people by the negative actions of individuals who happen- by luck of birth,  to live in the same skin tone. Because if you're going to see and treat me as a parasite, I'm going to see you as a white sheet wearing, pedophile/rapist, mass murderer of women and children.
So, you see- that race card can be pulled by anyone in the game- why you mad, though? Get over it, stop playing games, and grow up.

In case you haven't heard, This is Beads on a String, America's only multiracial history book to celebrates the contributions of ALL races/ethnicity to America's growth.
 "In all sincerity I have to say it is a work of subtle genius.This is the story of the heroes of our collective past. What is incredibly moving is that so many of these heroes have gone unsung for so long. "- Johnathan Ellis

History is written in more than black and white.

Releasing her first creative non-fiction American History book Ey Wade takes you through time and life stories to show you the multitude or races who helped make America the great country it is. Where in history can you find people from every ethnicity combined and having the story told of how they contributed to America? Beads on a String, America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History lauds loudly the accomplishments of all people who helped make America the great country it has become. Beads on a String is America’s first multiracial history book. Sometimes we forget history is for the formation of the future.

Why did I write Beads on a String- America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History?

It started off as a home-schooling Black history month project with my youngest daughter. One day my daughter and I were on the subject of Black History Month. We were irritated and frustrated (as a lot of people are) about the fact history of such a great race is illuminated once a month and on the shortest month and then she asked "When is White history month?"
"Everyday," I answered. Then (as children do) she started asking for the month of each race and the book where they were all included...there were none. We decided to make one. We should all be celebrated and recognized on the daily.

Beads on a String-America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History book is the first and only book to bring America's racial history together within one binding. My desire is to encourage unification in our understanding of contributions and worthiness of all races. I think it is way past time Americans realize history was written in more than Black and White and help our children learn this daily. Words can either hurt or heal and either way their effect can last an eternity.
My belief is:
I feel that we as Americans are all equal and held together by a common thread.  Like a treasured beaded necklace of different colors held together on a string, we are held together by our necessities and our circumstances and our humanity.  Every color helps to make the necklace beautiful. We can never be a totally separate entity! Americans of all colors are so integrated that if we hurt one, we hurt all. Just like that necklace of treasured beads, leave one out and the gap is seen. Break the chain and many of us are lost.~Ey Wade

Goober Abbott is such a hypocrite- the vote didn't make you God.
 He speaks "religious rights" for believers then wants to say who is a true believer. "It is not acceptable that people of faith be exposed to such abuse," he continued. "Displays of hate and intolerance against people of faith should be denounced by all people of good will and spark concern among anyone who believes in religious liberty and freedom for all." Your own words prove you're a moron.

Faith is believing in a substance unknown. God/Jesus is unknown. A belief you believe in your spirit, heart, soul, mind...whatever.

HIS word- written and rewritten by man, taught by man, believed by man, interpreted by man, followed by man. Man said, God said "Love," Above all else love. Nothing greater than Love. No if ands or buts... Religion says BUT...
Gonna be a mighty sad day when all the saints get to Heaven and the sign says,  ENTER IF YOU LOVED ALL, WITHOUT A BUT.

Have your opinions, make sure it doesn't effect your heart. Cuz I heard, and I'm not one to spread false rumors, but God said, He judges the heart of man.

There are some really good people in the world- Your daddy, brother, sister, cousin,auntie, black, red, yellow, white,man, woman, single mother, co-worker,best friend- who you stab in the heart- when you bash their race, religion, sex, and orientation. And then you want to turn around and love on them. Hypocrite.

If I heard wrong and religion/Faith is not about love, please let me know. There are a lot of damned people I can turn my back on right now. Loving some of those fools is hard work.
