Finding Equity

mihir_kelkar

Being Black is not synonymous to anger

Being Black is not synonymous to danger

 

Being Black is not synonymous to poverty

Being Black is not synonymous to tragedy

 

Being Black is common with perseverance

Being Black is common with cultural adherence

 

Being Black is common with ten thousand languages

Being Black is common with twenty thousand ethnicities

 

The color Black absorbs all

The color Black doesn’t fade at all

 

The color Black dominants the landscape

The color Black penetrates the sunrays

 

Black is when you are suffer-free

Totally operating in autonomy

Creating new waves in a laboratory

Pixelating new additions on life’s movie screen

Cosmos-inspired textile mosaics reign supreme

 

Eyes’ vision 8th dimension that affects impact

Lives of truth genuinely smile back

Rites of passage prepares responses of tact

Deep touches of moans felt along spine, back

Incomparable is the definition of Black

Respect as the Disguise

One of the biggest media reports this week was the visit of President and First Lady Obama to Saudi Arabia. The controversy is that First Lady Michelle Obama did not cover her hair, in compliance with cultural tradition.  Although her garments fully covered all areas of skin (except the neck), this was considered disrespectful.  It is very interesting that an Arab-run, Islamic country would deem something/someone culturally disrespectful.  Let us assess the Sudanese invasion by Islam/Arabs.

First, the name is Sudan is Arabic.  The original name of the nation was Khush (Kush).  Both names mean “land of the Blacks”.  Khush (Kush) is culturally correct.  ‘Sudan’ is the result of colonialism.  There are countless examples of how Arabs have exercised cultural imperialism, in name of religion.  How about the entire North African region (to include Eritrea)?  If you look at the average Eritrean, you can clearly see strong Arabian connection (genetically).  Why was it necessary for Eritrea to break away from Ethiopia? Why was it necessary for South Sudan to break away from the remainder of the nation?  Why was Darfur such a long-running, “successful” war?  The answer is within the common denominator…Arab presence! Respect is cyclical.

You can proclaim peace until you turn blue, green and orange, simultaneously.   The fact of the matter is peace is a state of being/existence.  It does not turn off because one decides not to follow traditions that apply to a respective ethnic group.  Although I am well aware of President Obama’s Islamic upbringing, I am glad that First Lady Michelle Obama did what she did.  I am certain that the intention was without disrespect.

Note:  I used an article posted by Washington Post for the sake of credibility to some of Easpoet’s blog followers.  The views in the article do not necessarily reflect those of E as Poetlove Water.

The purpose of the blog is to examine the nuances within current society (which usually has a historical stem).  I like to provide enough rhetoric and information that serves as a catalyst for one to further examine the subject-matter.  I do not claim to be an expert.  I do claim to be an imaginative realist.  One of the personal focuses I have had on life is to get to the core of any/every issue that directly and indirectly affects me and my people.  I would urge you to explore the dynamics of living for indigenous peoples in Arab/Islamic-colonized communities.  The torturous aspects of the religion are not only played out through terroristic-suicidal missions, but disparities in education, lack of food and enslavement.

Let’s not allow the corporate-controlled media outlets (Fox, CNN, BBC, Al-Jazeera, MSN, etc.) to be our brain!  Until next time…

SPECIAL REPORT: From the desk of E as Poetlove Water

Greetings Great Folks!

Normally, I do not write any type of reactive literature in response to a current event.  But, I am this time.  I must forewarn the readers that there will be harsh language and truths to come forth.  Not for the faint of heart/spirit.  Also, this blog post will be primarily directed towards the Afrikan Diaspora.

NOW….Ferguson, as it is called for being the setting of yet, ANOTHER, unarmed melanated brother being shot in “self-defense” (according to the shooter/assailant/perpetrator of crime/cop).  Rest In Power Mike Brown!  You have been elected to be a matryr in this war of humanoid invaders against hueman beings that belong on Mother Goddess Earth (Gaia).  I am certain that your soul is not at peace.  You have the power and opportunity to come back into the Earth realm!  While you have transitioned, please take the time to gather your spiritual artillery to fuck shit up in the spiritual and physical realms! YOU HAVE THE POWER!!!!

Message to the Earthlings:  While you guys were wondering why I did not engage in youthful carelessness and build up spiritual essence, you should have been finding out what I was doing exactly.  Because of the inner works and reconnection with Divine Mother-Father Source and the Ancestors, I have been protected from numerous attempts to take away my civil liberties/life.  From laced blunts to “random” harassment by the cops to brothers on the street with self-hatred to a plot by the chief of security at Federal Reserve Bank, I WAS NEVER TOUCHED!  You wanna know why?!?!?!  I was tapped into Source and the Ancestors provided guidance of when/where/why to go and do, at any given time.  This is the power that my Ancestors possessed!

Instead of bitching about discrimination, moaning of pain, begging for justice and sucking unmentionable body parts, RETUNE into our formerly common frequency!  I will say “the eye of Horus”.  Call on the mighty spirit of Mama Harriet Tubman and Baba Nat Turner!  Whenever a mission of freedom was to take place, the spirit of the Ancestors were invoked. Some call it convulsing or somewhat epileptic, but Mama Harriet knew where to go without ANY cartography (map). NOTHING/NOBODY supercedes Spirit or is beyond reproach.

The Calls of the Drums

In many minds and many cultures, the drum is considered “the heartbeat”.  The bass is considered “the pulse”.  Drumming is innate to Afrakan and Indigenous peoples worldwide.  The drum is the instrument and conduit to the Spirit World.  The world that some beings can see in clear view.  Others, not so much.  The beats of the drum affords all to benefit from the entrance (or re-entrance) into the spirit realm.  Taking a journey into many segments of the Cosmos for refreshment, reverence, praise, honor, communications, release.  Whether it is a Voudun ceremony in Benin/Togo, Eskista dance in Ethiopia, Zulu ceremony in South Africa, Santeria in Cuba or Christian worship service at Black/African Pentecostal churches in the USA, we have an inherent need to express our spiritual heritage through dance/movement.
