Africa
by Maya Angelou

Thus she had lain
sugar cane sweet
deserts her hair
golden her feet
mountains her breasts
two Niles her tears
Thus she has lain
Black through the years.

Over the white seas
rime white and cold
brigands ungentled
icicle bold
took her young daughters
sold her strong sons
churched her with Jesus
bled her with guns.
Thus she has lain.

Now she is rising
remember her pain
remember the loses
her screams loud and vain
remember her riches
her history slain
now she is striding
although she had lain.

Ferguson Police Department
Are the Police at War with African Americans?

"The Police Department is like a crew it does whatever it wants to do" - KRS-ONE

The cold war between Police Departments across America and African Americans can now be deemed a hot war. Where daily instances of black citizens committing no crimes are being shot, punched, tazered, murdered, and otherwise terrorized at the hands of police departments. This is 2014 not 1914. There is a Black President and a Black Attorney General and yet these instanced persist uniformly throughout the United States without any repercussions for the perpetrators of these crimes.

The police officer who killed Michael Brown remains free today. He is not in jail awaiting trial. He is a free man. Despite clear reports from witnesses that say he murdered an unarmed teenager with his hands in the air. See http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/11/us/ferguson-michael-brown-shooting-witnesses/ Two white construction workers who witnessed the shooting were in clear disbelief of what they saw. They saw a police officer shoot a teenager with his hands up. (Of course in post Dred Scott America the word of black witnesses are not enough.).

The cops and the 9/11 caller who got a black man killed in Walmart for carrying around an unloaded BB gun in a store that sells BB guns and actual guns, remain free uncharged with any crime. Not murder, not manslaughter, not negligent homicide. Nothing. Nada. Eric Garner was killed by NYPD via a choke hold for allegedly selling illicit cigarettes. A kid in Utah was recently killed for carrying around a fake sword. He was shot in the back and killed. (See http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/darrien-hunt-carrying-toy-sword-shot-and-killed-utah-police) Jonathan Ferrell killed in North Carolina while seeking help after being in a car wreck. No charges filed against the police. WTF! CONTINUE

Nelson Mandela
BlackState's Person of the Year: Nelson Mandela. For His Contributions to Planet Earth

Text of Nelson Mandela's Inauguration Address May 10, 1994
Your Majesties, Your Highnesses, Distinguished Guests, Comrades and Friends:

Today, all of us do, by our presence here, and by our celebrations in other parts of our country and the world,confer glory and hope to newborn liberty.

Out of the experience of an extraordinary human disaster that lasted too long, must be born a society of which all humanity will be proud.

Our daily deeds as ordinary South Africans must produce an actual South African reality that will reinforce humanity's belief in justice, strengthen its confidence in the nobility of the human soul and sustain all our hopes for a glorious life for all. CONTINUE


Nelson Mandela
Nelson Mandela Rivonia Trial Speech

I am the First Accused.

I hold a Bachelor`s Degree in Arts and practised as an attorney in Johannesburg for a number of years in partnership with Oliver Tambo. I am a convicted prisoner serving five years for leaving the country without a permit and for inciting people to go on strike at the end of May 1961.

At the outset, I want to say that the suggestion made by the State in its opening that the struggle in South Africa is under the influence of foreigners or communists is wholly incorrect. I have done whatever I did, both as an individual and as a leader of my people, because of my experience in South Africa and my own proudly felt African background, and not because of what any outsider might have said. CONTINUE


President Obama and President Putin
President Obama On Syria

My fellow Americans, tonight I want to talk to you about Syria, why it matters and where we go from here. Over the past two years, what began as a series of peaceful protests against the repressive regime of Bashar al-Assad has turned into a brutal civil war. Over a hundred thousand people have been killed. Millions have fled the country. In that time, America has worked with allies to provide humanitarian support, to help the moderate opposition and to shape a political settlement. CONTINUE





Colin Powell Prostate Cancer Survivor
Black Men Baldness and Prostate Cancer

A new study has indicated a correlation between baldness in African-American men and Prostate Cancer. The Study titled Relationship of Early-Onset Baldness to Prostate Cancer in African-American Men. The study found that the early-onset baldness has been linked to prostate cancer; however, little is known about this relationship in AfricanAmericans who are at elevated prostate cancer risk. The authors further “ observed significant associations between early-onset baldness and prostate cancer in African-American men. Interactions with age and smoking were suggested in these associations.” CONTINUE


African Sculpture
African Sculptures

Traditional African art comes from the central and western regions of this amazing continent. It includes figures, jewelry, domestic articles, masks, paraphernalia, and regalia. African masks and figurines mostly have a ritualistic significance besides their spiritual and aesthetic appeal, which adds to their value and allure. On delving deep, the true meaning of these African sculptures comes to the fore, making these articles some of the most wonderful additions to the look of any home. Websites like afridesia.net offer an amazing variety of these art pieces for you to choose from. Therefore, if you wish to buy African sculptures for use in the décor of your space, use this guide to discover their types and significance. Abstract representations When one considers abstract representations in traditional African art, the first name that comes to the mind is the Nok Sculpture. These terracotta figurines from North-West Nigeria can range from small 10 cm works of wonder to life-sized pieces. They have a specific appearance with a comparatively large and conical head, simplified faces, and tubular, short bodies. The mouth of the figurine contains wide lips with flattened noses. Initially their use was for placement in shrines and graves as a part of burial rituals. The original Nok figurines date back to 1st Century! In the contemporary setting too, sculptors continue to make terracotta figures in this style for use in home decor. CONTINUE
