Dang, bruh! RIP Mac Miller [SALUTE!]

Upset about needing to show proper respects in Reblogging for the wrong reason.

Props since you popped on the tellie with my folks, Anderson .Paak…But when I heard/saw him flowing the “Hip 2 Da Game” track by Lord Finesse, I knew he was official hip hop with it.

“…original Black man…” …

when I was in the DMV for graduate school at Howard University (M.A. in History, Africa focus) I felt fresher than most bumpin’ OC, Lord Finesse + De La Soul + Omar Lye Fook (my favorite singer after Stevie Wonder of all-time — and they have performed to gether so check him out)

I knew he was dope on the mic even more so when I heard him with Kendrick Lamar bringing the lyrical goods

– way to leave so thoughtful word play—

“…in an instant I’ll be gone…”

Yup smh with respect.

Man this sucks I dug Mac Miller and was proud of him as an artist. He had dexterity in his flows. Got me flashing back after that Lord Finesse beat having track came on. I had forgotten I had even heard that a longer time which further confirmed his dopeness to me. I am a Lord Finesse since like 1994-5 and worn out his album as a newbie to the Eastern seaboard.

‘Why I’ll never stand again for ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ (SALUTE!)

– Thom Hartmann’s valuable comments start at the 7:10 mark.

KING: Why I’ll never stand again for ‘The Star-Spangled BannerĀ by Sean King

Thank you Thom Hartmann for being soĀ EXPLICITLY CLEAR as is routine in your handling of knowledge.

So Colin Kaepenick KNOWS ‘THAT OF WHICH HE TALKS’ AND WILL NOTĀ  STAND FORĀ  and instead chose to kneel about honorably!

Francis Scott Key was WACK (a mild understatement)!

Higher!(WOW!)

So COMPLETE a work of Art as Informative

 

JUST YESTERDAY I gave an 8 minute teaching demonstration that included my breakdown of the rise of Mass Culture as a key root of good and bad cultural developments in the 1920s

Directly in reference to the inspiring lyrical content.Ā  Bravo, more please!

Camus’ ‘The Stranger’ (YE TUMI ACADEMY)

ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOK I READ IN HIGH SCHOOL…so much so that I LONG considered ‘Mersault’ as a middle name for my son, if I ever had one…yeah that ‘Deep’
the-stranger-by-albert-camus-Mersault
…you all are lucky to have it read to you yet I suggest that you read it yourselves…Enjoy however you choose to experience this great work.

This video presentation explains why I was so impacted by The Outsider (Stranger) when I read it in high school. As an inner-city born, agnostic-minded youth that excelled at sports.

At near age 45 it all makes since in my personal development and aspects of that which I want to share with others for their possible personal development.

After you get past what I think of but have never uttered “Assholisms” (which typically = over the top male bravado…I hope folks do not miss that this is a ‘Song of Resistance’ in way too many ways’ to the dominant socio-cultural and political-economic ‘norms’ in way too many spaces and places of Life.

Combining terms… to help pinpoint a description (which is fitting in this current domestic socio-political era)

Fasces-DT-Brittanica

“The fasces was carried by theĀ lictors, or attendants, and was characterized by an ax head projecting from a bundle of elm or birch rods about 5 feet (1.5 metres) long and tied together with a red strap; it symbolized penal power. When carried insideĀ Rome, the ax was removed (unless the magistrate was aĀ dictatorĀ or general celebrating a triumph) as recognition of the right of a Roman citizen to appeal a magistrateā€™s ruling. The discovery of a miniature iron set of fasces in a 7th-century-BCEĀ EtruscanĀ tomb at Vetulonia confirms the traditional view that Rome derived the fasces from the Etruscans. The Roman emperors, beginning withĀ AugustusĀ in 19Ā BCE, had 12 fasces, but, afterĀ Domitian(reigned 81ā€“96Ā CE), they had 24; dictators, 24; consuls, 12; praetors, 6; legates, 5; priests, 1. Lowering of the fasces was a form of salute to a higher official.

Benito Mussoliniā€™sĀ Fascist PartyĀ of Italy was named for the fasces, which the members adopted in 1919 as their emblem. The Winged Liberty dime, minted in theĀ United StatesĀ from 1916 to 1945, depicts the fasces on its reverse side.” Source:Ā https://www.britannica.com/topic/fasces

 

LIFE ANTHEMS! ~ Games Begin

I love my friends!

One of my MOSST MEANINGFUL favorite Life Anthems.

Since, BUT Only for, this Post-Stroke Rehab period, AFRISPORA has turned into only a blog/vlog.

Appreciate my real world and online folks that have ‘Held Me Down’ as I probably me first heard Q-Tip say in a verse. It radiated a MEANING then almost 30 years ago.

It is easy yet hard to explain but should one have to…? As Jalen Rose puts it, “It’s ‘Cultural!’ Yup, I agree bruh.

SALUTE! ~ Black Panther’s director: ‘Brotha Kofi’ Ryan Coogler

Kofi is Ryan Coogler’s Akan Day Name. Like mine is Kwame (Saturday born), Kofi indicates that he was born on a Friday in 1986 in his case. Each day carries a variety of attributable spiritual (thus behavioral) traits.

He is symbolically my/our folks now, so he gets a nickname as a term of endearment.

Asante bruh!

See something just came of falling asleep while listening to news including the disturbing occurrences…you then wake up to what looks to be a credible documentary and Chinese folks accurately stating how American approaches to empire are way different than those of the government in China.
