Love things that are beautiful to my eyes. I repost what I admire

"A few years ago, I got a call on my cell phone from a twelve year old child from my village. He was calling me from a bus stop. He’d taken a bus into the city alone, and he was calling me to ask if I could help him find a way to go to school. Both of his parents had died of AIDS, and he had no money for tuition. I told him to stay where he was, and left work immediately to pick him up. At first I was very mad at him. He should not have travelled alone. But then I looked at him and I saw myself. I’d also been desperate to go to school after my father was killed, but we had no money. So even though I was suffering myself, I told him I would try to help him. My salary was not enough, so I tried many things to get the money. After work, I went to the landfill to hunt for recyclables. But after I paid to have them cleaned, there was no money left. Now I’m trying to make bricks. I have a small operation in the village to make bricks, and I sell them in the city. It doesn’t make much money, but it’s enough to pay tuition for the boy and three of his siblings.” (Kampala, Uganda)

A carefully researched account of “one of the nation’s least known racial tragedies” - the lynching of three young black men in Duluth, Minnesota in 1920. Six black men had been arrested and held in the investigation of the rape of a young white woman, when a mob of between five and ten thousand people stormed the jail and lynched three of the prisoners - two 19 year old boys, the other just 20. This book looks not only at the event itself but of the circumstances surrounding the formation of the mob in the first place.

I seen many having a good time laughing at Floyd Mayweather’s reading skills,however does bear in mind what Neely Fuller said which are four basic Black people need to stop doing in our community he calls it Show-Offisms
1 Showing Off, to each other, the things that white people have allowed them to obtain.
3 Showing-Off to each other their ability to belittle each other.
In Neely Fuller’s Book he puts it this way:
"This ‘show-offism’ serves no constructive purpose. It only helps non-white people to become more pitiful, primitive,stupid, and / or silly in comparison to the activities of the White Supremacists, and/ or in comparison to white people in general." see page 41.
"Niggerized Fun- Anything said or done by non-white people under White Supremacy, that is for the purpose of  “showing off” to each other, mistreating each other, and or directly or indirectly “poking fun” at each others weaknesses and /or misfortunes.” see page 290.

Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.
