One of my mentors at Yale, the great anthropologist and art historian Robert Ferris Thompson, has documented that three of the most important words, and thus, concepts, brought to these (and other) shores via Africans are Cool, Funky, and Hip. My argument follows: you can no more separate Black from Cool than you can separate French cooking from France, or yoga from India. Cool has African roots, period. We, Black people, bring the aesthetic of Cool to the table of global culture, and should be recognized intellectually and economically for doing so.

Anonymous asked: How do you begin to heal from being cheated on? Especially if he cheated on you with your own sister..
I’m so sorry you’re going through this. Every hood ounce of me wants to say, “they gotta die twice.” However, that’s not the answer. The one thing you can begin doing is stop blaming yourself and beating yourself up about it. This has nothing to do with you. I will suggest taking time out to seek some sort of therapy, primarily surrounding the family issue…and also taking time to meditate and pray. Good luck and peace to you.
