Stand Up- RIP Trayvon Martin

If you haven't been following the news let me catch you up. 17 year old Trayvon Martin of Miami, FL was murdered in cold blood because of racial profiling in February.(We won't discuss how long it's taken for the mainstream media to get hold of this.) Meanwhile, the killer, George Zimmerman has yet to be arrested. This is beyond crazy. This man was not a police officer he had no right to follow this young man. On the 911 tapes you can clearly hear Trayvon's cries for help. Trayvon could be anyone of our brothers, nephews, cousins,etc. Trayvon deserves justice.We need to stand together no matter your race. A young black man's life is just as valuable as anyone else's. The following video is of US Representative Frederica Wilson as she explains what needs to be done. STAND UP. A link to one of the 911 calls follows the video. Sign the petition. 911 call

Joseph Kony 2012

This is was brought to my attention and I knew I had to share. This troubles my soul. It should trouble yours too. It's a sad shame that this is the first time that I'm hearing about this. I'm down for the cause. Joseph Kony HAS TO BE STOPPED. I hope that you watch this short film and make the same pledge. We can bring about change.

Happy Women's History Month

Greetings and Salutations, It's March so that means it's Women's History Month. Naysayers be silent. Women are the central part of all societies. Respect is to be shown. The video that follows is from one of my favorite YouTubers, Whoissugar. She lists the 10 things she feels all women should know. If you're so inclined feel free to comment below as to what YOU think all women should know. Males your input is more than welcome too. "If you are in a country that is progressive, the woman is progressive. If you're in a country that reflects the consciousness toward the importance of education, it's because the woman is aware of the importance of education. But in every backward country you'll find the women are backward, and in every country where education is not stressed its because the women don't have education." -Malcolm X
