So as a black person,you go to church,you look at all the christian cathedrals and works of art. You see a white jesus and white angels.

Yet they sell you the idea that the god behind the religion used to colonize and enslave your mind,made you in his image,and you believe it.

They have taken the chains off your neck,hands and feet but the most restrictive of all the shackles,the one on your mind is regularly maintained and greased by you.

Just how free can you ever aspire to be when all your thoughts are filtered through a colonized mind?

What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

Did y’all know about this?

It’s good to know even though it’s extremely horrible to read/see….And people wonder why the African continent is so behind….

The Story of Cosmetics (2010)

The Story of Cosmetics, released on July 21st, 2010, examines the pervasive use of toxic chemicals in our everyday personal care products, from lipstick to baby shampoo. Produced with Free Range Studios and hosted by Annie Leonard, the seven-minute film by The Story of Stuff Project reveals the implications for consumer and worker health and the environment, and outlines ways we can move the industry away from hazardous chemicals and towards safer alternatives. The film concludes with a call for viewers to support legislation aimed at ensuring the safety of cosmetics and personal care products.
