'God help u if u are an ugly girl, 'course 2 pretty is also your doom cuz everyone harbors a secret hatred 4 the prettiest girl in the room. God help u if U are a Phoenix and u dare 2 rise up from the ash, a thousand eyes will smolder in jealousy while u are just flying past..." - Ani di Franco
i was clappin on that one. Toomany times as women we gotta supress our wants/needs/desires and enjoyment of sex. I think women might even enjoy it and are most likely better at it than men. We dont need no erection and have endurance and stamina but because we are taught not to be sexually out right we surpress it and it seeps out on occasion and then we get labels freaks, sluts and so on! Tracey is such a strong woman I think she is awesome!
Nuwb or "blackness" is supreme balance before the chaos was introduced. It was a state of sound, right reasoning. That darkness was triple darkness, which is what you would call the absence of consciousness, or the state of being awoke. In actuality, the dream state is more real and peaceful than the chaos you meet once you are awake. A form of spiritual darkness responsible for the spark that turned on the light that is the life and intellect of all who breathe and think. When the light is turned on again, the chaos begins. The differentiation begins. The separation begins. The rights and the wrongs, the goodness and the badness; the supreme balance is broken and the ego begins to verse the "I."

I just picked this up on a recommendation from one of my few literary friends whose opinion I respect (it's a rarity). Unfortunately, I won't be diving in until the end of this semester... classes right now have me reading 150 pages a night during the week...

"The Farming of Bones" by Edwidge Danticat "Miseducation of the Negro" by Carter G. Woodson "Black Genius: African American Solutions to African American Problems" by Walter Mosley(Introduction), et al "The Isis Papers" (Yssis Papers/Keys to the Colors) by Frances Cress Welsing
"From the futurescapes of music of Timbaland and the Neptunes to Destiny's Child's sisterhood anthems, black music is currently all about clamoring for attention, demanding to be heard. Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill, D'Angelo, and their like may offer an alternative but often this is predicated on a romanticized sense of the past, as though what's modern and futuristic can't compare to the analogue and organically grown." Eskow Eshun (From the Sade article in The Fader Winter 2000)
i particularly liked the conversation she had with his lying ass...lol. Relationship LONG OVER and he STILL can't admit that he was cheating. What does he think will happen? She'll leave him again?!?!? LOL
but the only thing i don't agree with is that most men have a special affinity for lying. I know firsthand that women lie just as much as men do, but the difference is that we are WAAAAAAAY more skillful at keeping that shit underwraps. Our conniving skills are so much more advanced than men. And I'm not saying that its something we should be proud of...just pointing out that men and women are equal in the penchant for lying department.
For the most part, lying is a natural human thing to do. We all do it in some form or another but we justify it most of the time. We call out 'sick' knowing we're not really sick...we lie to unemployment office and say we haven't found a job yet...we lie to our parents, to policemen, in courts...we tell our friend that we're busy when we're really not cuz we don't feel like hanging out...whatever. Lies are lies and we all tell them. Its really just the degree of the deceit that matters...
...like i said u have as much culture as a bathroom sponge. ostrich boy, take u're head out the sand and step outside the realm of okayplayer culture and recognize that there's a whole new world (c) regina out there.
