BLACK WOMEN OOOO!-“BACK WOMEN REALLY ARE….AN ARCHITECTURAL TRIUMPH….”-A POEM BY MENELIK CHARLES-FROM FACEBOOK

“BLACK WOMEN REALLY ARE…AN ARCHITECTURAL TRIUMPH…”-A POEM BY MENELIK CHARLES OOOO!-ON FACEBOOK

Black women really are…

An architectural triumph, aren’t they? I mean, whether slim, medium or large, they consistently declare themselves the very model of what women of all races ought to look like…but don’t.

Every time I do a status on Black women’s aesthetic, sensuality or their physical form, I run the risk of sounding like a scratched record…well,
so shall it be.

If the mainstream media will not speak of their hallowed status then I sure-
as-hell will! There is much about Black women’s attitude which is often quite repugnant…I get that.

But only a liar, a fool or a blind man would deny them (and all Black women) their true status as the world’s most astonishingly beautiful women.

So yeah…the record maybe scratched
but I’ll keep right on playing it!

MENELIK CHARLES ON BLACK SKINNED BEAUTIES AND COLORISM-FROM FACEBOOK

BLACK SKINNED BEAUTIES FROM GHANA-MENELIK CHARLES COMMENTS OOOO! -ON FACEBOOK

Please look away now…

If you’re not a man with a passion for dark-skinned Black women then you’ll probably never fully appreciate how scintillatingly sexy these women in the picture are!

People are entitled to ‘their opinions’, I guess. But when those ‘opinions’ have been corrupted by colorism, and poisoned by prejudice, then they are not opinions at all but perceptions distorted and infected by white supremacist, psycho-social, conditioning.

So if you’re here too politely ‘like’ this status…while privately retaining a bias towards the pale and the beige skin tones…then may I suggest you go some place else to register your ‘like’?

You see, colorism cannot be successfully disguised by a ‘like’ any more than my appreciation for the gorgeous light-skinned model, Cocaine Lorraine, can disguise my overall preference for chocolate-skinned women like Kelly Rowland.

It is my contention, therefore, that attractive dark-skinned Black women have a grace and beauty, sensuality and sweetness, unequalled among women of other races! Indeed, and as I’ve written elsewhere, these sisters are so sweet that I imagine they shit sugar, and piss orange juice!

Ethiopia to give ID cards to Rastafarians long stateless

July 30, 2017 by

ADDIS TIBEB

Ethiopia will issue national identity cards for the nearly 1,000 Rastafarians who long have been seen as stateless in the East African nation, the government announced Thursday.

The decision means they can enter without visas and live without residence permits. The move also affects Ethiopian Jews and foreign nationals who have made positive contributions to the country.

rastacommunityinshashamane“These individuals have long been unable to enter and leave the country easily,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Meles Alem told The Associated Press. “In the case of Rastafarians, we have three generations of people residing here that have blended well with our citizens. But sadly they were neither Caribbean nor Ethiopians so were somehow stateless. This national ID will address this problem.”

Close to one thousand Rastafarians live in Ethiopia, especially in the capital, Addis Ababa, and a southern town called Shashamane. Ethiopia’s last emperor, Haile Selassie, granted land for the Shashamane settlement for…
