but it’s not about race right?
indians light clay oil lamps, known as diyas or deepas, in celebration of the third day of diwali. known as the festival of lights, diwali, which begins this year on october 21 (a day earlier in south india), lasts for five days.
what originated as a festival to mark the last harvest of the year and seek the divine blessing of lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, has over the centuries become a national festival enjoyed by most indians regardless of faith. (consider that india is the second most populous muslim nation on the planet)

Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover
Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?
Can we honestly discuss this. Look at this beautiful accurate portrayal of an Ancient Kemit (Egyptian) Queen. She looks like an Ethereal Goddess.
Reasons why we need to cast Black People as Black People.
There was a lot of talk today about the media’s failed coverage [read: non-coverage] of the 234 Nigerian girls, thus came the #234WhiteGirls hashtag.
No, none of us wants any white girls to go missing. We just want these Nigerian girls to get the same amount of coverage that white girls get (or would get), because EVERY girl matters.
Wearing anklets is a sign of the marital status in many Hindu cultures and is considered to be a symbol of good luck for herself and her husband.
A scientific reason given for wearing anklets is that by wearing the anklets, one’s energy is not wasted but re-vibrated back to one’s own body. Also, since the woman wears a lot of gold jewellery in any Hindu religion, a lot of electricals currents are produced in the body. To counter these currents and to keep the positive energy flowing in the body, the practise of wearing Silver anklets is established.
But why you doing interviews spewing these 'interpretations' as fact tho…?
Just something to keep in mind for those still planning to watch this ‘movie’…
