"The Goddess archetype was erased and substituted with the "son" who came through her womb. The son replace Her as the God of Love. Sometimes represented as a boy with an arrow shooting at a butt.

Am I not here? I am your mother.
Ezili Danto is the irreducible essence of the divine mother, love, justice and the female principle. Remnants of the worship of the mother of creation is everywhere on planet earth either as the Black Madonna and child given a whitening or the heart with a dagger going through used every Feb 14th in the US on Valentines Day but with Greek pederasty's cupid shooting a butt arrow substituted as the love divinity. " --Ezili Danto, Vodun, the Light and Beauty of Haiti

At one point in the video, a hand pops out holding out a Final Call (NOI) newspaper with a photo of Dr. King. The caption reads "The Truth: More than A Dreamer." The graffiti on one wall reads, "Stop shooting us."

You could say Queen Beyonce puts Minister Farrakhan, Malcom X and Dr. King on one platform. Black on Black violence at the highest levels squashed. Slay, to slay the team has to get in formation, move as one. We're not killing each other, but looking outwards together. There's more.

At the most feted U.S. knucklehead sports event, in front of the largest audience in the world, Beyonce took a huge chance. Wrapped in a Michael Jackson jacket, she sacrificed the banal for substance. Saw through her own Black points of references. Nixed what W.E.B Dubois calls our double consciousness - white eyeballs forced over Black eyes. Jeopardized her pop career for the greater good. Like an "albino alligator." Deep irony there. The tragic mulatto. Dr. Frances Cress Welsing's Isis Papers and fear of a Black planet and revenge of the albino alligator on the African parent. There are many stories, twists, confluences and contradictions to unravel.

There's how Black people without in_formation continue to conjure up Michael Jackson's defacement not just of his nostrils but his melanin, and in broader context, the unwholesome wish for melanin recessive genes on a Moon planet lit by the Sun. We're killing ourselves. Our very foundation and foundational creeds are underwater, lies. Rebirth awaits, denial won't help. The Black metaphors, identity, visuals and symbols abound. Black women recognize themselves, this energy.




Old man Rudy Giuliani got on Fox News to say her Super Bowl performance was an attack attack on police who "put their lives at risk to save us." Argh! Why that fool giving me work? Black love and pride equals an attack on white policemen? Is not "decent and wholesome entertainment" for Superbowl halftime?

Does Giuliani think he's Bill Clinton 1992 and Beyonce is Sistah Souljah to take down because she artistically lifts up Black power? The question for Giuliani is why is showing Black love and a historical consciousness a criticism of systemic U.S. racism? Uhmmmm?

It's no longer Giuliani time. Haiti revelers happily celebrated the last two days of carnival after shutting down the carnival king.



See the 2016 carnival videos (here, here, here and here) of Haiti revelers on February 8 and 9, 2016."

Yeah, this is the country, these are the people, Empire and its media minions want to image as grossly violent and dangerous because of their "power vacuum."
