Happy Friday blogs. The post today is about a forgotten gold medalist, who just like our beloved little Gabby D deserves our adulation and love. She took a road less traveled and knocked out her competition in the process. Congrats to Claressa Shields! She made history too and just isn't getting as much media attention as our other talented sis. She's bad.

I won't apologize for not posting in a while. Life happens, I'm a thug in my own mind. Deal wit it homie. The following two things have respect and black folk in common. Other than that...nothing links them. Don't judge me. First. On this day in 1831 Nat Turner led his rebellion. It ended in a bloody massacre of both blacks and whites. He was hung for it. Justice was not served but freedom was tasted that day. *Fist raised, afro big and heart full of pride.* I won't forget what his death means. Freedom is a gift and shouldn't be taken for granted. Second. I just wanted to pop in and link you all to a fabulous writer and her refreshing interaction with a respectable brother. Enjoy!
