A womans voice is the first thing we hear. What women say is so important. What women hear is important too.
As I think about one day having more children or attempting to once again share my life with someone, I’ve learned to pay attention to what women talk about. Whats in your sentence?
What is your conversation?
What are you “spelling”?
Who is she listening to?
Does she know every reality TV personality and nothing about finance or current events?
Does she have 50-500k followers because shes beautiful and her body is amazing yet is clueless of how to use her platform to benefit anyone besides herself?
THERE IS NO HUMAN THAT DIDNT COME FROM A WOMAN. They are God on earth.
Real talk. This aint “G”.
But what kinda God ARE you?
Think about it.

Link is in @KngHenryIV bio👆
This producer is one of my favorites. My song #BlackBette is on this album also. #TheWilliamsProject is dedicated to those that came before us (an old family photo of his on the cover) and those coming next, blending soul music elements with modern hip hop. Besides for my song, there are so many other dope joints, i like that #PhilWade Good Intentions a lot!
Good dude, good music, moved to NYC from Houston to follow his passion and i fck wit that!
Just a friendly reminder they dont NEED to be Loubs, Choos, Giuseppe’s or anything crazy.
We kinda notice but dont care.
Get you a good Carlos Santana, Jessica Simpson, Nine West, or splurge a lil on Stuart Weitzman, or somethin and call it a day.
If you just GOTTA have the high end shit, make sure its TOTALLY for YOU. Dont do it to “look like a bad chick” or to appear kept or that some dude who is like your personal “Mr Big” found your vagina and time Sooooo valuable that he showers you with gifts.
Doesnt it feel empty in two weeks after you spend 1400 on shoes and cant pay your bills?
Oh, No ashy ankles please.
Happy friday. Love yourself more.
Fellas, i am NOT saying that its okay to front like you want somethin long term so you can get the best of her and then dip, relying on the fact that “theres a next dude waitin anyway”. THATS NOT MY POINT.
Im just lettin you know that theres other cats out there doin all their homework and gettin their paperwork ready and if youre not ready you just gotta accept the fact that she might wanna choose someone else, so dont think there isnt.
The difference is shes not entertainin them like we would be. Shes just lettin em sit there until shes ready. She might fuck one erry NOW and then, totally on her terms. But its one. And she can dead him at the drop of a hat. Wont talk for weeks.
All im sayin again is. : DONT BE MAD if a woman you like gives someone else the opportunity to do what you didnt seem like you wanted to do. Its not a fact that she was juggling the two of you while she was getting to know you. He coulda been there before you, just on ice, patiently.
Dont force shit cause you dont wanna “lose her”. Just understand how the process goes. Ok?
He is raised to be realistic and practical. Which means he believes its very real to acquire practically ANYTHING he dreams of.
And he still has a book in his hand. (at Gansevoort Park)
#Repost from @najamatthews with @repostapp —- On this day August 28th in the year 1955 (Emmett Louis Till) was murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman. Till was from Chicago, Illinois, visiting his relatives in Money, Mississippi, in the Mississippi Delta region, when he spoke to 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, the married proprietor of a small grocery store there. Several nights later, Bryant’s husband Roy and his half-brother J. W. Milam arrived at Till’s great-uncle’s house where they took Till, transported him to a barn, beat him and gouged out one of his eyes, before shooting him through the head and disposing of his body in the Tallahatchie River, weighting it with a 70-pound (32 kg) cotton gin fan tied around his neck with barbed wire. His body was discovered and retrieved from the river three days later.
Till was returned to Chicago and his mother, who had raised him mostly by herself, insisted on a public funeral service with an open casket to show the world the brutality of the killing. Tens of thousands attended his funeral or viewed his casket and images of his mutilated body were published in black magazines and newspapers, rallying popular black support and white sympathy across the U.S. Intense scrutiny was brought to bear on the condition of black civil rights in Mississippi, with newspapers around the country critical of the state. Although initially local newspapers and law enforcement officials decried the violence against Till and called for justice, they soon began responding to national criticism by defending Mississippians, which eventually transformed into support for the killers.
The trial attracted a vast amount of press attention. Bryant and Milam were acquitted of Till’s kidnapping and murder, but only months later, in a magazine interview, protected against double jeopardy, they admitted to killing him. Till’s murder is noted as a pivotal event motivating the African-American Civil Rights movement. RP by @coolbreezenyc

Dont go astray…
Trust me. Don’t.
Which means fellas: stand your ground. If you dont want a relationship because you dont like commitment, say that. You run the risk of no physical intimacy IF THATS WHAT YOU WERE THERE FOR, but you should just say that from the beginning. Dont fake a relationship for some ass. Not worth it. Feels shitty and the world is getting smaller and more petty. You should see the texts women send with screenshots if you just take a pic at a party, let alone out on a date.
It also means ladies: i know your sister has a dude and its nice to see your girl just got married but that doesnt mean you try to make every dude your “man” JUST TO SAY YOU HAVE A MAN so that you seem wanted and cared for and valuable. That comes from within. STOP hearing what you wanna hear and ignoring what men say about what theyre looking/not looking for… thinking that if you sleep with him and make him a meal thats gonna change his mind. Every woman has a vagina like every man has a penis. Your pussy aint your TRUE power. DONT LET THESE MAGAZINES, REALITY SHOWS, HEAVILY SCHEMED CELEBRITY RELATIONSHIPS fool you into thinking youre missing something.
If you want something real it takes time and effort of BOTH. The only time you can “change” a male is when theres a diaper involved.
Cherish and be cherishable.
I do not want to know what it feels like to be soaked in my own sweat and tears as I watch my son, who was savagely killed like an animal and left in the street for four hours, be lowered in the ground forever.
Good Morning America
They didnt come from the most wealthiest zip code with a history of the town rallying around a little league team. The critics said they wouldnt get past the regional rounds.
The Chicago based #jackierobinsonwest team members are the US Little League Champions.
These faces could be lined up like this for other types of stats that arent positive. Im so happy to see them here in this light. I wish them the best.
In light of whats happened to young black men in this country, i would like to congratulate these guys from #jackierobinsonwest for being the United States Champions in The Little League World Series.
They’re from Chicago. Lets hope this makes news. Lets hope they can keep growing and competing and have wonderful lives.
