I thought in 8 years, President Obama would speak out and implement something close to reparations, race relations programs and making sure AmeriKKKa takes care of it's own (as well as those they don't claim). I could've swore he said no more troops were going overseas to fight? I'm not sure what he's doing now and he's so caught up with making sure Israel is protected and financially fit that AmeriKKKan citizens are being murdered by those we thought were here to protect and serve us.
Just to clarify: I have several white friends and they, along with the white folks sympathetic to and active for the eradication of the injustices we've witnessed in the past few months, are NOT who I'm talking to.
I'm talking to the racists - the white folks who don't believe the Bible was based in Africa or that it depicts African (black and brown-skinned) people as Prophets. I'm talking to the racists who don't believe Africans built AmeriKKKa and the ones who want to ignore and erase slavery from books, thus erasing the very savage practice of it. (Don't try to hide your savage ways, now... The Most High and Karma are still watching...)

I personally want to thank Ariel for giving us Sutra and running it like a 'home' spot and not a VIP/Bottle Service/Mandatory Dress Code spot. It was always comfortable and inviting. And thank you to Da Beatminerz for being at the DJ helm at almost all the parties I've enjoyed there, even when it was Bar XVI... I will miss this unique combination and I know I'm not alone. This is the end of an iconic era of NYC nightlife. Peace and Love!

Downstairs were appetizers, drinks and an awesome band called Red Sahara. The lead singer has a beautifully tuned voice giving me Karen Carpenter one minute and Cassandra Wilson the next.

Friday, 8-15-14, I was blessed to see my Grand-babies perform at Restoration, under the tent, for the closing ceremony of The Cyber Camp. The Cyber Camp has been in Brooklyn for years, educating our youth from just walking to young adults, building computers, social networking, computer basics, with nutritious breakfast, lunches and snacks, field trips, and reading, making it fun and exciting for our children to learn and want to learn.
After the dancing and seeing B. Polite, Nina, Alyson, and Lioness, I ran into Stacey Muhammad, writer and director of "For Colored Boys: Redemption". So good to see her and talk. The series is DOPE! I was fortunate to be at the right place and time to burn a pot or two for the cast and crew. Thank you, again, Cynical!
Stacey was showing a 30-minute clip of FCB at Restoration, so I stayed. It needs to be seen on a big screen, not my laptop! I got my FCB tee, a big hug from Stacey and I let her know if she needs me to cook again, I'd be honored. Me and Lioness broke out, brought some Jamaican plates of goodness and proceeded to eat, chill and catch up! Been too long, Sis...
|DJ SYLK ROCKIN OUT!|
Came through to Frank's to check my brother, DJ Sylk get it in. My sister, Soulflower, met me there and we jammed to the sounds of Sylk downstairs and we enjoyed DJ Pinky Tuscadero upstairs, playing House. Again, Happy Healthy Birthday, Shameeka!!! My men, Fred and Craig came through, too. Between them and Sylk, my drinks were flowing all night. And my cab was free! LOL
Getting my lawyer/paralegal on... I needed to get out after this move, so I met my sisters at Cielo... So glad I went!
We had fun dancing and catching up. Saw two sisters I haven't seen in a while. I thought it was great to see them out and chilling. They both had a problem with me and didn't say anything, so I talked to both of them. Hindsight is a mother phukka but don't let your hurt interpret your shit. Analyze yourself before you start acting funny-style to others, especially if you're not on point from the gate... #TripHerAndLetHerFallDown! LOL
Check my Instagram: themamawize...
They played dope funk and soul, Hip Hop and BoogieBlind played Rock Lobster! If you don't know what that is, that's cool. I loved it! When I heard, "Turn Down For What?" All I could see were my grandchildren dancing to it last week at Restoration. I wound up sitting down to laugh til I cried heartfelt tears! LMAO! To me, at that very moment, until the record went off, that crowd was a bunch of 2 to 6 year olds getting their break dance on. Turn down for what... smh.

Friday August 22nd, I got wind of my man, Touray, spinning at DBA. I heard of DBA but I've never been there. Since my cable and Internet been off, since Monday, why not check the spot out. It's in my hood, too...
I had no idea these brothers got down so hard with their musical selection. I heard a lot of great music... And they blend chune dem! Reggae, Hip Hop, Soul, etc. I was pleasantly surprised and I'll be back! DBA is the old Laila Lounge, for my WillyB heads!
I realized at 1:30am, I had confirmed my attendance at Bushwick Bizarre to catch DJs EMAN, Oskar Fuller and C-Boogie. Hopped on Thia and we were out to Bushwick from Clinton Hill. Straight ride down Myrtle Avenue. I love Brooklyn!
We walked down Fulton St, cracking jokes and laughing about everything. I found a spot that still sells singular Backwoods... The smoke shop right on the corner of Fulton and Nostrand. We parted ways at Fulton St and Bedford Ave.
I chilled with Jah Beanz for a minute and officially met DJ Johnnie-GoFigure. I sipped my Moscato and jetted to Afro Punk after my phone charged. Off me and Thia go...
I got to Afro Punk but my lil sis, Taj had already rocked there the entire day. She needed to be outta there. I stayed for D'Angelo and thank you Sis, for the ticket! I saw a long time soul who I've known and who's energy was always love, chillin with her girl... Great to see long ago faces...
My man, Touray and his homie, Courtney were chillin, listening to D'Angelo in the area to the right of the stage, where they sold alcoholic beverages. Touray left to relieve himself and came back to be told, he can't come back in. I enjoyed D'Angelo's set but the politics inside were real wack.The black security dude said to us: "Listen! They don't want you here. They told us if anybody leaves, that's their final exit. You can't come back in even if you were in here ." I asked, "Did you tell him that when he left?" He said I'm just doing my job. They want you all out of the park and there's nothing I can do. Me and Courtney high-tailed it up outta that area. I said thanks, Brother. Do your job.
