A Day Out In Brooklyn

A Couple months back I received an Email that had me blushing for quite sometime. It was from an Atlanta based writer(Andrea Dwyer) who wanted to do an Interview on me. Little old me a girl from Brooklyn who could barely wake up on time for work. Why would anyone ever want to interview me? Anyways, I agreed. I mean who would turn down getting asked questions about their life, what’s so interesting?! I enjoyed the suspense and the little attention I got from someone wanting to know more about my life. 

The day arrived and I met with the photographer due to the wonderful below degree weather and snow storm that New York experiences the writer’s flight got delayed but the photographer managed to weather the storm and meet.

The Photographers name is Brianna Roye, what surprised me the most about her was her youth, well I’m not so old if you think being 28 is old. Well sometimes I feel it. But I tend to get nervous in front of the camera a bit but she was most welcoming with the lens.

I hate to blab a lot so lets allow the images to speak. As well as please if you do have the chance check my interview out on Superselected.com

For more information on the photographer slide over to her tumblr:

Why isn’t anyone talking about this?

Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.

"

When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation.

But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him.

Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people.

"

True, anyone who’s been paying attention knows this. The only time you can get gun control passed in this country is when politicians start seeing POC walking around freely with guns.

When they started giving Purple Hearts to soldiers who committed friendly fire?

If never

Why those who admit they’ve done it
Now get put on pedestals that are higher

I mean
How we,
Go from catching bodies bout a week ago
To then ,all of the sudden catching feelings

Was it cuz,
the hand that deserves the credit wasn’t the same complexion
Or is it the crabs in the bucket are the only ones in competition
Yet by whose composition
Has us written off or down as only victims

Never included that this too is part of the system

Blacks say “black on black”crime is just called that because the black community is where we living

Yet, we are the only community that Praises the soul that spits his confession in rhythm

Yet the sound of the one two is just the foot steps of those shuffling along
I dare a nigha to step out of line and look at the system

See no difference between the cop and thug
Besides one just has permission
The other thinks this is just the rules of living

You probably still can’t see the difference

There is none
Besides one does 25 to life
The other does 25 retires and adds extra stripes
Both slaves to master
We just get hung at different heights

So
I caught body bout a week ago
Yet nobody knows who did it
Scream at the police to release the name
Yet in our hood there’s no snitching

We went from hands pulling finger triggers
To hands up don’t shoot
Not realizing the finger motions don’t mean shit
Cuz we been playing like we had tools

Now who’s building

Besides project buildings
That feel just like home
Cuz I
just got out of prison

Remember I caught a body bout week ago
Went to jail bout a week ago
Got bodied became someone’s bitch bout a week ago
Aint a damn body came seen me or write
For bout a week a so

Came home saw my five year old son singing
I caught a body bout a week ago
Already knows to keep hoes in a trap house
What happen to sand box?
It was all good just a week ago!

(To be continued……)

THIS IS WHY I’LL NEVER BUY ANOTHER HIP HOP ALBUM UNTIL I HEAR A SONG CALLED “FUQ THA POLICE” FROM ONE OF THESE NO-BASS-IN-THEIR-VOICE-NEW-AGE-RAPPERS!

It’s not hard to see why Mike was thought of as a “gentle giant.” RIP, my brother. #staywoke #neverforget #farfromover

Tony Hansberry II was a ninth-grader. The new sewing technique he has developed helps to to reduce the risk of complications and simplifies the hysterectomy procedure for less seasoned surgeons.His goal is to attend medical school and become a neurosurgeon. For Tony, it all began in school. He attends Darnell-Cookman School of the Medical Arts, a medical magnet school for middle and high schoolstudents. As part of its integrated medical curriculum, students receive medical instruction, but are also exposed to medical professionals who demonstrate advanced surgical techniques with specialized equipment. His lead medical teacher, Angela TenBroeck, told the Florida Times-Union that Hansberry is a typical student, but is way ahead of his classmates when it comes to surgical skills “I would put him up against a first year medical student. He is an outstanding young man,” she said.During his summer break, Tony volunteered at the University of Florida’s Center for Simulation Education and Safety Research (CSESaR) at Shands Jacksonville Hospital. He was supervised by Dr. Brent Siebel, a urogynecologist, and Bruce Nappi, the administrative director. Together they worked with Tony exploring the mannequins and simulation equipment that physicians and nurses use in training. He became quite interested in invasive surgery and using laparoscopic instruments. As the story goes, one day an obstetrics and gynecology professor asked the group to help him figure out why no one was using a particular surgical device, called an endostitch for hysterectomy suturing procedures. This long medical device has clamps on the end, but Tony used the instrument in a new way allowing for vertical suturing, instead of the traditional horizontal method. After two days, Tony had perfected and tested his new technique. He soon developed a science fair project comparing the suturing times of the vertical endostitch closures vs the horizontal closures using a conventional needle driver instrument.His results showed he was able to stitch three times faster using this new method. Use of this inventive technique may lead to shorter surgical times and improved patient treatment. Found on http://www.oshpd.ca.gov/
