More of a public intelligence analyst so i like to dub myself as one. Mostly i believe that nothing is for certain even after proven it is always subject to change. As long as there are government secrets, there is no reason to fully trust and always reason to look beyond the surface. Of course, this can be applied to various situations, but as a citizen in this wayward country….i would just be plain stupid to accept all the BS that’s fed to us daily.

Most white wealth in the US is held in the form of real estate and this is how they got it.
It goes without saying that once they stole the land and killed or drove out former inhabitants, the structures erected on that land to continue to generate wealth — buildings, plowed fields, irrigation systems, sewage systems, kitchens, furnaces, mills, workshops — were built by enslaved artisans and craftspeople kidnapped from overseas.
This is the story of US American wealth creation. No secret here.
I was one of those students. Not for as long but impacted just the same. Thank you soooo much Ms. Nancy for all you do and continue to do!
White people have certain things that they expect from black musicians. It goes all the way back to slavery days. That’s when Uncle Tomming got started because white people demanded it. Every little black child grew up seeing that getting along with white people, meant grinning and acting like a clown. It helped white people to feel easy about what they had done to blacks, and it’s still going on today. When it comes to black musicians, white people want you to do more than play your instrument. They want you to entertain them with grinning and dancing. I’m not an entertainer, and I damn sure ain’t no Uncle Tom. I won’t do it”
