I got called afrocentric today like it was something to be ashamed of. I told them others have called me that but I identify as black &conscious. Mind you, this came from the same light skinned black man who didnt want to admit to being half Haitian #blackrage  #selfhatred #black #conscious

Forgive me sisters, brothers, and others, but I am completely skeptical of things like this. I like the idea; I really do.  But has it, in recent memory, ever worked? We constantly read this stories about the spending power of black people in the United States, but have we ever united in a way that makes that power impactful for our own benefit? Have we ever wielded this power politically in a way that liberated us or present us as a force to be reckoned or bargained with? Have we ever done anything with our economic engine other than attempt to embrace Whiteness? If we didn’t boycott, divest, and sanction the United States, from within the United States, when that cop murdered a sleeping 8-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones during the filming a S.W.A.T. reality series, I have zero faith that we will do so in the memory of a black kid who stole a pack of cigarettes. We know and do nothing like we know and do social apathy and political lethargy.  This comes from community member BM Williams:"Nationwide Protest ***Blackout Monday*** September 8, 2014 Will not patronize any business that is not black-owned and operated. This means do not spend ANY money in person or online. Blackout Monday September 8, 2014 Wal-Mart, K-Mart, BJ’s, Sam’s Club, Costco, Home Depot, Lowes, Best Buy, Shell, BP, or any gas stations and convenience stores, etc. No fast food restaurants or sit down restaurants unless they are black owned and operated! Continue to go to work and school, just don’t spend any money. The black dollar will make an impact. There’s power in numbers! In remembrance of Mike Brown and all killed unjustly! We will hit them where it hurts: their pockets!”

7 lies we have to stop telling about African-American female students

There is a myth that African-American girls generally fare better than African-American boys — that they somehow have it easier. This creates a potentially damaging narrative that may ultimately prevent society from truly empowering these young women.

Here are seven myths that we need to stop repeating when it comes to African-American women and the achievement gap.
