“To all the women who quietly made history”
Tonight, Tyra Banks responded to a three-year-old tweet from Janet Jackson. Unbelievable.
Tyra is such a bitch!
Does practicing yoga force you to turn in your Black card? Why are there so few of us at yoga studios? Maybe we’re at home doing yoga by watching a free online class. Yeah right! As much as I want to believe that, I don’t think so. I’m not attempting to answer either of those questions. It feels…
I hate yoga studios. Too much privilege and pomp in most, and that’s the antithesis of yogic practices. There are a few here where the energy is good, but for the most part I practice in my home or at the park.
We’re out here tho. I do believe a majority of yogis and yoginis are poc,agood amount being Black.
March and Rally at the White House
Saturday, April 13
Lafayette Park -1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
The following is an excerpt from the article through the link:
The targeting of Africa and its vast natural resources by the Pentagon and CIA is in full swing.
Having killed thousands of people through U.S. drone strikes in the Middle East, Central Asia and the Horn of Africa, the U.S. government is now putting all of Africa in the crosshairs.
The Pentagon is establishing a drone base headquarters in Niger and a network of drone bases throughout the continent.
In late December 2012, the United States announced a plan to send military missions to as many as 35 countries on the African continent.
After engaging in centuries of colonial plunder and the kidnapping of millions into slavery, the U.S. and European powers are bringing a new wave of militarism to Africa.
Under the guise of “fighting terrorism” or “saving civilians,” the United States, France and Britain are invading and bombing African countries.
Now they will step up their campaign of killing African people by the employment of Pentagon and CIA drone aircraft located in a network of bases being established by the Pentagon throughout the continent.
The U.S. functions as a death squad government, permitting the president and military leaders to create secret “kill lists” of people who have been selected for assassination. There is no due process, no trial, no evidence – the individuals are selected to be murdered and they are killed, and many civilians who are nearby also die. Drones are the weapon of choice.
Over 3,000 people have been murdered by U.S. drone strikes in the last few years, including a large number of children among the many civilians who have been slaughtered by these robotic killing machines.
Sitting in offices thousands of miles away from their targets, U.S. operators routinely decide to “push the button” and kill their unsuspecting targets on the ground with hellfire missiles fired from unseen drone aircraft. In Pakistan and Afghanistan, villagers have staged mass protests against drone strikes after their kids were incinerated while they were collecting firewood or farming in nearby fields.
In the 19th century, it was a common tactic of imperialists to use gunboats to move around the world and assert their will, answering challenges to their authority with bullets and cannon shot. The use, or threat of the use, of naval force was used by Britain, the United States and other imperialist nations to force exploitative terms of trade and political accommodations on various political entities around the world.
The United States government’s drone program serves the same general purpose as gunboat diplomacy. It enables the United States to extend its military power over any country that lacks the ability, or will, to shoot down the aircraft.
Join us at the White House for a march and rally on Saturday, April 13 to let the world know that the people of this country are demanding “Drones Out of Africa and Everywhere!”
If you are unable to attend the protest, please sign the online referendum at the site provided below to petition against drone strikes and assassinations.

For some reason I thought there were Wegman’s in Cali (cause my friend from Santa Maria aka the middle of nowhere said they had them over there), but I just looked and got no results. Though I think there MIGHT be one in San Francisco (aren’t you in the Bay area?) don’t quote me tho. I’ll check around for you. But while I was in Oakland I loved the Grocery Outlet but I doubt they have anything like that in there so yea maybe Wholefoods is the best bet. I don’t like them because they are too elitist tho. Try the Berkeley Bowl too! My hippie friends used to LIVE there and they found a bunch of good stuff in there. Hope that helps. Much love.
