Badass Misty Knight

Recently, I read a comic about what I thought would be the best tie in for the Marvel universe to include an Afro American character. The woman is named Misty Knight and for the life of me I cannot understand why she isn’t in more episodes. Her story stems from a risky job, which was being a New York City Bomb Detective; to a grueling life juggling love and super-abilities. Her character is both strong and beautiful, which is why I needed to give her a little coverage.Mistyknight0.png Her story immediately takes a sharp turn when her arm is blown off due to a terrorist bomb and she’s forced to leave her job, and her once normal life. Misty is then left in the care of Charles Xavier where she rooms with Jean Grey and receives a Cybernetic arm courtesy of Iron Man.

She fought and had a draw with Ironfist, which resulted in them seeing each other in a different light. The two started dating. Their relationship was rocky at best, which led to her on-again-off-again relationship with Powerman aka Luke Cage. Luke Cage is being picked up by Netflix right now and will begin running shortly……so go catch it! Hahaha I couldn’t resist.

If you’re into comic books, Marvel, or sexy women comic figures dressed in scantily clad suits, like Misty, then you should check out WorldofBlackHeroes or  BlackGirlNerds for more of her story.

I was so moved by this character that I decided to make a little video on her life story. I am placing it on Youtube so that maybe more will learn something and gain strength in themselves. With that being said…..heres a link to the video.   Afro Girls Need Love Tooooo Thanx!

Who’s America is this?

“My Rights”

I’m raising my hand because I don’t understand. Please teacher I have a question.
You know whatever I have to say will tear away the fabric that you try to mask over our eyes.

image

You don’t want to call on me I know
but everyone else is silent.
Everyone else is waiting for your instruction, hopelessly.
Wishing, hoping you’ll just give them the answer and feed them whatever version of the truth you can muster up!
I see through this ohhhh I see through this.

With a college education I am armed with  knowledge so I can stand up for myself.
I know for one that I have the freedom of speech and can assemble anywhere to converse with like minded people.
So Teach, if you don’t call on me its cool cuz I can start a club after school.

We have a right to protect ourselves people.
And we should do so by arming ourselves with information.
Build a militia around knowing our rights and protecting our youth.
Don’t allow them to be seized for stupid stuff.
Search their book bags and their memories.
Redirect them from being a statistic.
Don’t give the cops “probable cause”, we’re too smart for that.
And they like to issue warrants so be aware.

Don’t relish in jeopardizing your freedom because you feel as though someone is infringing on your God given right of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
No let’s get to the bottom of it Brooklyn.
Let’s hold our heads high cuz we say no to cruel and unusual punishment.
No to excessive Bails and fines
And all my right are coming with me even if they weren’t all listed here.
Because I am me and I stand firm for all of us.

New Heights

Flutes of champagne

Take the road less traveled n b sure to take in the sights
Cuz ur on the road to greatness n wonderous new heights
U may wander off the deep end but dont get caught up in the breeze
You are right here for a reason so dont make like a tree and leave
I wish you another year in the snuggly arms of who love u most
May they be here, same place, next year for another blissful toast.

The multifacets of love

image

There’s a certain twinkle in your eyes
I can see it when you smile
When you’re talking about things you haven’t thought of in a while
You have the strangest fascination with the multifacets of love
You’re waiting for gods sign
For him to send you from above
I can b ur beaming light n ill walk u
Thru the dark
Bark like a scolded dog if i sense any harm
U have the patience of an owl and
The strength of a lions herd
I really need you wit me to lead us
Thru this world

Help is on the Way

If you find yourself living in a shoe box of an apartment in the city, chances are you may have experienced maintenance issues in your building. Usually a result of the supers’ lack of care. But  sometimes, without provocation an emergency can change a person’s living situation forever. Sadly, enough the story doesn’t end there.

If a person experiences a fire, flood or other natural disaster and are rendered homeless a donation based program known as the Red Cross comes in to pick up the shattered pieces. They are limited in what they can do but offer many resources for those who have lost everything. Registration upon arrival allows a survivor to receive medical treatment, housing for a few days, and a small stipend which is placed on a prepaid debit card.

The Red Cross is volunteer based and works completely off of the graciousness of others. From the outreach team that are dispatched as soon as they are alerted about the disaster to the  advisor  who helps contact legal offices on behalf of the survivors are all volunteer participants. Even the money used in order to operate this program is donated and granted.

The Red Cross is a not for profit organization that has several locations, including one in Brooklyn at 4th Avenue in Park Slope. redcross
