    8 Reasons Why Black People Should Resist #45

    400C7465-7B60-47C4-8590-4C428820809A
    1. Donald Trump was a racist realtor in the 70’s. He was charged with Housing Discrimination and here is the kicker, he was found guilty by a court of law.  2.  Donald Trump took a full page ad out in a New York paper calling for the execution of the Central Park 5; five teenagers falsely accused of...

    She Sat Like Rosa Parks

    7FDA6AEE-02BE-4291-BA6C-E3F26072A40D
     Therese Okoumou was not only bold in her actions but fearless in her efforts to take down #45 and this systematic racist system that put immigrant babies in cages. When unintelligent people have nothing to say, they name call and Donald Trump of course called her a clown for her heroics. But to me she is a refreshing rememberence wh...

    I Wrote

    CB0BBF29-CD28-47C9-AFA1-B03931E7A4C4
    I was humiliated into my business. I was shamed into being the “boss”, with haters waiting for my failure. Nobody wanted to stand side by side with Dearest. I was taunted, mocked, thrown away by a whole circle of people that I called family, so I wrote. I wrote in the small bedroom of my mother’s house after losing everything to love . . ...

    Chris Brown Arrested

    5A065773-70FD-41E4-B0E5-DA738422A330
    ​I have to be honest, I am not a huge Chris Brown fan. Although many can let go of the brutal assault on Rihanna, since then me and Chris have not been the same. But I am a huge fan of justice. So when Chris Brown goes to Palm Beach to perform and gets arrested for outstanding warrants from last year, I just wonder, who the hell you got on you...

    I Love Everything About You but Your Mouth

    0D4FD414-6B29-476D-97F8-23ABFDBEDA1A
    ​Black Women, vulgarity, articulate, outspoken, relationships My husband use to tell me that he loved everything about me except for my mouth. Really? I’m a preacher and I use this mouth to edify, build up, encourage and to praise God amongst other things but he wasn’t referring to that mouth. I am a very romantic woman. I use this m...

    The Other Face of Immigration

    887DE284-264E-4D62-B28C-38940B66A904
    While some of us smoked up the grill yesterday and watched the annual fireworks show,  Therese Patricia Okoumou climbed up the Statue of Liberty in protest of our demonstrative immigration laws here in the US. Watching the CNN coverage from my phone, gave way for our dear citizens to make hateful comments about a person tha...

    Independence Day

    29BDB638-B12B-41AF-8DD6-AF0F5920D3B9
    Author, bestseller, prison, love, depression Liberating Eve -  I write my best when everyone is asleep and I am completely alone. In those moments I don't worry about being wrong or right. In those moments I have an armor for the pain and my tears only serve as the lubricant to press through all of the buffoonery that I allowed . . . that I al...

    Depression is Real

    3BC4D214-5B3F-4EAE-8445-46C442F3E1A8 Tina Turner and her son Craig Raymond
    When I was going through a really dark place in my life, I would consistently make the post "Depression is Real" on Facebook. I would do this because I didn't want to let the demons take me out. All I needed was just one person to make a post of agreement that what I was feeling was real. Sometimes it would be just a positive word to snap me out of...

    The 4th of July Mirage

    "Let this be the teaching day to show what ideology you will play, teaching our children that they will never be "boss", when it's half of our race that is certainly lost." Today some will celebrate, the country we forgot to liberate. The land of the free, forgot to see me. The term liberation is "the act of setting someone free from impr...

    Some

    03CF164D-A24C-4E1A-BC23-A4182582AAD6
    Someone said I do not say enough about how Black females fall short and I'm quick to jump on Black men. I slept on this last night and my reasoning has been that some Black women have been deaf for a long time and I felt hopeless dealing with some of my sisters. The betrayal that comes out of this village for me has been grievous to say the least. ...

    Shut’em Down

    2FF38E77-3E6E-4E7D-91AE-BAC6C5725911
    ​I’m not CNN, just the mother of a son.  Studies show that one person is murdered every 60 seconds on our planet. That’s too much for news coverage, too much to film, too much to go on FB Live, too much to feel. So if you’re murdered, to catch the attention of most, it must be epic. Your life won’t even be tweeted if you do...

    June 19, 2019 will be the 154th anniversary of Juneteenth. This is the final celebration of Emancipation from the confederacy in Texas.  Abraham Lincoln, reluctantly issued the Emancipation Proclamation on September 22, 1862. Slaves transmitted this information through the grapevine, abandoning plantations, s...

    Prison Photograph Tore my family apart yet it was only love I sought. I traveled the 4 hour ride, each week to be by his side. I gave up my life, just to be his wife. As many years went by, I just knew he wouldn’t lie. Introducing him to my seed, a love they would never need. Putting my own life on hold, not ...

    AA5F5EC7-882B-4F12-BAD8-9B111202709F
    ​I had a spiritual epiphany about my business and all I could think about was the scripture from Proverbs 18:16; “Your gifts will make room for you.” I scrambled all day, taking conferences with aspiring authors and clients. I read excepts from several books. I guided my coaches because they are the “dream makers” for these...

    Mother Mamie Till said keep that casket open so the world can see what they did to my son. A woman whose name I will not mention, accused our beloved Emmet of something that we would probably create a meme for today. A child never living to tell the story, never able to laugh at how ridiculous this ugly woman’s lies were. You see the...

    Black Darlington

    Black Darlington
    What a beautifully, exquisite, dark, mortifying past Darlington has. I didn’t grow up in the region but both my mommy and daddy have the stamp of Darlington on their birth certificates and the majority of my genealogy spans in the roots of Darlington. So, I take great pride in writing about Amy Spain, one of our ancestral heros. She was a 17 year o...

    Dearest Diaries
    I don’t like writing two blogs in one day but none of my authors would take the task of writing about the late, beloved Malcom X, although all my authors are currently male. I guess the royal wedding was just all too consuming. Well, Malcolm X, born Malcom Little, transforming to Malik Shabazz, was my hero. His autobiography made me fall in love wi...

    Dearest Diaries

    Dearest Diaries
    I wanted to write about the royal wedding because it is truly sentimental to me, as a Black Woman growing up in beautifully segregated Long Island. To see this brown sister with similar hues as mine walk up the palace steps was truly amazing. Yet, the universe gave this momentous event the ugly backdrop of the ever present shootings in the states a...

    Dearest Diaries
    ​Some may ask, “what’s holding me up?” Well as a preacher I quickly respond, “God”. Then they might continue with, “how is God doing this?” For the longest, I couldn’t answer that. I was moving but I couldn’t derermine what was holding me up after my husband asked for a divorce in the most humiliating fashion or when illness fell upon my dearest da...
