BLACK-SKINNED WOMEN: QUEEN MOTHERS OF THE BLACK RACE AND ALL BEAUTY!
Why do I sing Praises of your Beautiful, Black, ebony,velvet skin,”Blacker than the sky at midnight”{1},your full mushroomed mouth, your beautiful broad nose, your generous “Congo hips” {2}and full-flowered backside? Because for too long many of the Black Race have abused, dishonored you, degraded and denied you your crown, Queen of Queens,Queen Mother of the Black Race, Black Beauty Supreme! From you all the beauty of the Black Race springs forth.In fact all the world’s beauty springs from you,Mother of all beauty of all the races of the world! Your Black midnight,licorice,dark black chocolate,beauty, is Blackness concentrated in your beautiful “Black-blueberry”{3} face!

First in the order of creation is always given respect by Afrikan tradition. The 1st wife, the 1st elder, the 1st kingdom, the 1st original inhabitants, of the earth-all are considered with honor. So it should be with Black Beauty-our darkest -skinned Sisters are the 1st Mothers of the Universe-Black as a color came before all the many tones of brown,red,yellow and white. But for too long our Dark-skinned Queens have not been given the respect and place of honor they deserve. IN FACT THE WHITE BOY HAS INTIATED the cycle of reversing the true order of things by turning upside down the pyramid of Beauty, and placing white-light on top and relegating the most beautiful Black-skinned Beauties to rock bottom!

So Black people have been taught well how to deny our most

beautiful one her crown, taught how to reject our Blackest, most Afrikan features, full lips and nose and mouth and woollest hair, for the weaker characteristics of the white race. Shame on Black people! When will we wake up to this Black Beauty concentrated, from whence all our lesser beauty comes. When will we give the crown of crowns,the throne of thrones, to the Blackest Queen of Queens?

Most of us who suffer from”mulatto-mentality” and “yellow fever”, as Fela, our great Nigerian Musician calls it, will go on and on about what about us lighter queens-aren’t we/they beautiful too, yet you/we should be aware that such queens have gotten all the play in the past and that even in Black Egypt one of the reasons for its downfall was the allowing the lighter ones of the race, to place themselves above the rest of us in the name of lightness and pride of light-closer/to/whiteness. So if we’re yellow,to light brown/red, then we should give respect where respect is due and not live off of the artificial white thrill of having “white features” as if it is an advantage. Where would you be without your BLACKEST great Grandmother? We should honor the Blackest part of ourselves, thus giving us true pride of Blackness, not verbal signifyin’ but real testifyin’ that BLACK is beautiful! If the Blackest, most Afrikan-featured Sister isn’t respected as the Supreme Beauty of the Race,the Black woman’s beauty is not really respected at all for what it really is(only in terms of how closer to white we look). We all reflect the strengths of this concentrated beauty in ourselves, all the manifestations of how Blackness can present itself are seen in our faces. Down to the milk-lightest of us, our Blackness is what dominates us whether physically or mentally. But the Mother is greater than the child and so the Blackest is greater than all the other tones of the Black Race. If we don’t respect our Blackest Queen, we don’t respect our True Black selves. We must have a Black value for BLACKNESS in features and skin tone. We must have a Black Standard of Beauty based on the Black-skinned woman. ALL PRAISES DUE TO OUR BLACK-SKINNED QUEEN-MOTHERS!

BLACK DOLLS!-THIS GREAT YORUBA MAN CREATED GREAT BLACK DOLLS IN HIS “QUEENS OF AFRICA” DOLL LINE IN NIGERIA!- SUPPORT HIM NOW! -BLACK DOLLS FOR BLACK CHILDREN!-FROM DAILYMAIL.CO.UK

FROM DAILYMALL.CO.UK

Nigerian doll created by man who couldn’t find a black toy for his niece is so popular in his country that it’s outselling BARBIE

  • In 2007, Taofick Okoya, created a doll that Nigerian girls could identify with
  • 43-year-old based his Queens of Africa dolls on country’s biggest tribes
  • They cost roughly £4.50 and aim to promote strong feminine ideals
A man who couldn’t find a black doll in the shops as a gift for his niece decided to take matters into his own hands.
In 2007, Taofick Okoya, 43, created his own doll that Nigerian girls could identify with by recreating their skin colour and style – and it is now so successful that it is outselling Barbie.
The doll, which is called Queens of Africa, comes with traditional outfits and accessories and costs around £4.50.

The dolls’ look is modelled on three of the country’s biggest tribes and aims to promote strong feminine ideals, like love, peace and endurance.
The doll is now so popular that, according to Reuters, it is selling up to 9,000 units a month – a staggering 15 per cent of the country’s toy market.
But the Queens of Africa aren’t just selling in their home country.
Thanks to the doll’s online presence, customers are coming from as far as America, Brazil and Europe.

Taofick Okoya explains why ‘Queens of Africa’ are so important

Speaking to ELLE about his dolls out-selling Barbie in his native Nigeria, Okoya said: ‘My mission is to make the Queens of Africa a symbol of hope, trust, and confidence by promoting African history, culture, and fashion.’
One person that Okoya really hopes the dolls will have a positive impact on is his daughter, who, he explains, once wished she was white.
Okoya said: 'I don't believe Mattel sees the Nigerian market as a priority, yet their product has great influence on the psyche of the children here and affirms certain values contrary to our society'

Okoya said: ‘I don’t believe Mattel sees the Nigerian market as a priority, yet their product has great influence on the psyche of the children here and affirms certain values contrary to our society’
He explained that even though they live in Nigeria, there was a lot of Western influence. He said: ‘[This] might have been responsible for her wishing she was white. It made me aware that I needed to make her proud and happy being a black African girl, and not limit it to her alone as this was a common trend among the younger generation. The Queens of Africa became a platform to achieve this.’
Unfortunately, Okoya has been told that he won’t be able to sell the dolls on the shelves of mainline stories in America and will have to limit his business to specialist stores.
But he is determined to see the decision overturned, he said: ‘I am looking to prove them wrong.’

“Women on 20s” Organization Pushing U.S. Treasury to Replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the $20

May 14, 2015 by

Originally posted on GOOD BLACK NEWS:

A group that wants to kick Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replace him with a woman has, after months of collecting votes, chosen a successor: Harriet Tubman.

Tubman, an abolitionist who is remembered most for her role as a conductor in the “Underground Railroad,” was one of four finalists for the nod from a group of campaigners calling themselves “Women on 20s.” The campaign started earlier this year and has since inspired bills in the House and the Senate.

The other three finalists were former first lady and human rights activist Eleanor Roosevelt; civil rights figure Rosa Parks; and Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation. Now that voters participating in the campaign have chosen Tubman, Women on 20s will bring a petition with the people’s choice to the White House.

Originally posted on politics from the eyes of an ebony mom:

We are all a product of our experiences and we often share it with the people in our circle. When you are the First Lady your circle is much bigger. Mrs. Obama is coming under fire from the right for sharing her experiences with racism. She was speaking to a majority black audience who identified with her narrative. She was passionate as she shared her life story, but that passion is being misidentified as anger. This is so familiar to so many of us. too often when a black woman shows passion she is called angry or intimidating, but when her white counterpart reacts the same way she is showing passion and confidence. The Obamas are nearing the end of their tenure in the White House and they are feeling a new sense of freedom. They are now speaking frankly about race the third rail. The movie A Few Good…

It is more than past time to get the racist/butcher/genocidist Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill.

The following is an article from NPR News on the Women on 20s Campaign to get Ms. Tubman on the $20 bill. The founders of the campaign are hoping to put a woman’s portrait on the $20 bill by 2020 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining voting rights in the United States.

Okay, President Obama, the ball is now in your and the United States Federal Treasury Secretary Jack Lew’s court.

BALTIMORE OOOO! #2

Originally posted on politics from the eyes of an ebony mom:

it was a big week for Baltimore. The Freddie Gray tragedy played out on tape. We don’t know everything about this case but we do know what we saw was heartbreaking. The screams of Gray as he is dragged away are wrenching. The riots and the protests drew the attention of the national press. Some of the press drew well deserved attention to the case and the state of affairs in that part of Baltimore.  In a 24/7news cycle you often see things that we shouldn’t see. We saw reporters surrendering their microphones to almost anybody and everybody. We heard many tales of police abuse, but we only had the account of the supposed victim. The claims were accepted and unchallenged and that can not be described as good journalism, but is good journalism the same as good news? No good journalism requires fact checking and good news simply generates…
