In Case You Missed This Headline…

In Case You Missed This Headline…

‘Hunger Games’ actress Amandla Stenberg — remember little Rue from the first movie — appeared in a video online earlier this week called “Don’t Cash Crop On My Cornrows.”

The video, which was made with a classmate, starts out talking about black and black culture.

“Black women have always done their hair, it’s just a part of our identity; braids, locks, twists and cornrows, etc.,” she said.

The young woman, 16, shows her maturity by explaining the functionality of the different hairstyles for black women.

“You can see why hair is such a big part of Hip-Hop and rap culture,” she adds, explaining how rap and Hip-Hop culture eventually became popular and a crossover phenomenon when the likes of white rappers like Eminem hit big in the early 2000’s.

As the 2000’s became the 2010’s, Stenberg, 16, cited how other celebrities began wearing clothing, hair styles and accessories associated with Hip-Hop.

“By 2013, the fashion world had adopted cornrows as well,” she explains. “Pop stars and icons adopted black culture as a way of being edgy and getting attention,” citing Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry.

The purpose of the actress’s video was to explain cultural appropriation.

While new white Hip-Hop artists like Iggy Azalea were excelling, “at the same time, police brutality against black people came to the forefront,” she added.

Michael Brown and Eric Garner, among others, are brought up as examples by Stenberg. She said that some white artists that cashed in on Hip-Hop have failed recently to speak out about racial injustice.

“That itself is what is so complicated when it comes to black culture,” Stenberg said. “But here’s the thing. Appropriation occurs when a style leads to racist generalizations or stereotypes where it originated, but is deemed as high fashion, cool or funny, when the privileged take it for themselves.”

She added that appropriation happens when the person taking on the culture is not aware of the deep significance of the “culture they are partaking in.”

To close, Stenberg posed a question: “What would America be like if we loved black people as much as black culture?” she said.

11 Ways to Boost Your Lymphatic System for Great HealthPositiveMed | Stay Healthy. Live Happy

11 Ways to Boost Your Lymphatic System for Great HealthPositiveMed | Stay Healthy. Live Happy

Glands, lymph nodes, the spleen, thymus gland, and tonsils create the lymphatic system, which cleans our body’s cells and carries the body’s cellular sewage away from tissues to the blood where it can be filtered by two of the body’s main detoxification organs: the liver and kidneys.

The main symptoms of lymphatic problems are felt in your shoulder and neck area. If you have been suffering from injuries, excess weight, cellulite, or pain disorders like arthritis, bursitis, headaches, or any other chronic pain, a sluggish lymphatic system may be playing a role.

1. Breathe deeply-
Breathe in the sweet smell of healing oxygen, breathe out toxins. Our lymph system relies on the action of deep breathing to help it transport toxins into the blood before they are detoxified by the liver.

2. Get moving-
Exercise daily to ensure the lymph system flows properly.

3. Drink plenty of water
To help ensure the water is readily absorbed by your cells add some fresh lemon, or oxygen or pH drops.

4. Forget the soda, trash the neon-colored sports drinks, and drop the fruit juices-
These sugar, color, and preservative-laden beverages add to the already overburdened workload your lymph system must handle.

5. Eat more raw fruit on an empty stomach-
The enzymes and acids in fruit are powerful lymph cleansers

6. Eat plenty of green vegetables-
Green vegetables give you adequate chlorophyll to help purify your blood and lymph system.

7. Eat raw, unsalted nuts and seeds-
They are packed with fatty acids that power up your lymph nodes.

8. Add lymph-boosting herbal tea-
Astragalus, echinacea, goldenseal, pokeroot, or wild indigo root tea are beneficial to your lymph system.

9. Dry brush your skin before showering-
Brush your skin in a circular motion upward from feet to torso and from fingers to chest. The lymph flows towards the heart, you should work in the same direction.

10. Alternate hot and cold water in the shower-
Heat dilates blood vessels and the cold causes them to contract.

11. Get a gentle massage
There are few things more relaxing than a good massage, and it can be healing as well, studies show a gentle massage can push up to 78% of stagnant lymph back into circulation. Try a lymph drainage massage, it’s a special form of massage that specifically targets lymph flow in the body.

Side Chicks Beware!

Side Chicks Beware!

Be careful, if you’re a side chick, the main chick or wife in this situation can get you back for all them gifts and stuff you get.

Remember Donald Sterling and his racist remarks?  Well, the culprit behind the tapes that got Sterling in trouble, V. Stiviano, aka Side chick of the Century, is in more of her own trouble nowadays with Mrs. Sterling!

Looks as though Donald caked her to death when they were “friends”.  During their “friendship”, he bought her a $1.8 million duplex, Range Rover, 2 Bentleys and a Ferrari to name a few gifts.  Why do you need 2 Bentleys though?  That’s just greedy.

Mrs. Sterling is going after all of it, and she doesn’t even need the stuff back.  There was no mention of any jewelry or vacations V received.  How does Mrs. Sterling sue for the food and sex they ate and had though?  How much do you think each sexual encounter costed?  LOL!!!

I don’t feel sorry for V.  She knew what she was doing and that this man was married.  You go Mrs. Sterling!  Get yo money back!  All $2.6 million of it if you can.

Good luck shopping at Aldi from now on V.  ha ha!

Petition For Baby’s Name

Petition For Baby’s Name

This couple has gone viral with their fight over their unborn child’s name.

They don’t even know if the baby is a boy or a girl yet but this name drama has hit an all time high.

Well, Nicholas and Kseniya Soukeras are battling over the name of their child if it’s a boy.  Nicholas wants to name him, get this, SPYRIDON! after his father.

OMG!  That is absolutely horrible, like some of the celebrity names for babies.

Why would you want your child to have a name like that this day in age?  I mean, it sounds like a character from a PS4 game or a line out of the Hobbit.  “Spyridon perches on a ledge to pounce on Legalas once he enters the forest to look for Tauriel”.  LOL

Nicholas has gone so far as to petition the internet to support him in his quest but I want to start one to not support that name because it’s horrible.  Hi son will be teased endlessly after 5th grade.  For the first 5 years it will be cool and all the other kids will want to change their names to super heroes cause that’s what they will think of Spyridon’s name at those ages.  My, oh, my what a battle it will be after that.

I mean what would you call him for short?  Spy or Don?  Both are terrible.  Ok, what about Spryi?  Nope.  The only one I can come up with is SP like Nicki Minaj’s ex SB.  That’s as cool as I can get close to.

What do you think about the name?

To Spyridon or not to Spyridon, that is the question.  haha

🙂 Phee
