Old School Friday
What a week this has been. Last week I was searching for some inspiration. This week I think I wore myself out! I don't know how to quit you!
This week's theme is SOUL TRAIN. Everybody do the intro together now...
Wasn't it just providence that I mentioned the demise of Soul Train and other key aspects of our African-American heritage? Once these jewels are gone they're gone for good. We MUST preserve our unique contributions of "Blackness" to the world. It seems increasingly that so many OTHER people want to cop our style and pass a watered down version of it as theirs..and we LET THEM.
Ok, I'm trying to keep it light. There was enough tough love talk this week. I'm going to go back to "beating up" white people and politics, lol! Have a great weekend.
One of the best segments of Soul Train was the dance line. Show offs! All the things we take for granted because we assume the circumstances will always be ideal. I've really come to appreciate Old School Fridays because we're archiving some of the best parts of ourselves in a manner of speaking by honoring and remembering significant cultural touchstones.
