Book of the Day "The Epic of Gilgamesh"

Image
As mentioned in the video, "A Christian Calls Atheist Kweli Kush in the Lion's Den" this exciting new take on one of the oldest epics in the world is a literary feat. Translator and best-selling author Stephen Mitchell breathes life into a 3,700-year-old tale, delivering a work  that shows how startlingly alive and filled with intelligence and beauty  Gilgamesh is.
    It is the story of literature's first hero, an historical king of Uruk in Babylonia, and his journey of self-discovery. Along the way, Gilgamesh discovers that friendship can bring peace to a whole city and that wisdom can be found only when the quest for it is abandoned.

Man Served 8 Years in Solitary for Reading This Book... 23 Years for Joyriding

Image
Kenneth Oliver was freed Monday June 3, after serving 23 years of a life sentence for a joyriding case. 8 years of which he spent in solitary confinement for possessing a book written by Black Guerilla Family co-founder George Jackson!

  His attorneys say, "it’s unconscionable that he was set to die in prison for nonviolent crimes."

  Oliver, now 52, was given the life sentence at 29 under California’s strict “three strikes” sentencing law for repeat felons.

Although the law was modified in 2012 to allow life sentences only when the third strike is for a serious or violent felony, Oliver was not eligible for a new sentence because he was found with a book called “Blood In My Eye.”

 The state has now expunged Oliver's gang-affiliation record and paid him a $125,000 settlement for his time in solitary.

  “It’s almost impossible to believe that what happened to Ken happened here in California. You know, people think of this as an enlightened state and both the sentence an…

Book of the Day "White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide"

Image
When black people get angry after an unarmed black person is murdered and broadcasts all over tv and the internet, white people ten to call these moments of "black rage." But is it black rage or white rage that is at work in these types of moments?

  Since 1865 and the passage of the 13th Amendment, every time African Americans have made advances towards full participation in this democracy, white reaction has fueled a deliberate and relentless rollback of their gains.
  The end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with the Black Codes and Jim Crow; the Supreme Court's landmark 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision was met with the shutting down of public schools throughout the South while taxpayer dollars financed segregated white private schools; the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 triggered a coded but powerful response, the so-called Southern Strategy and the War on Drugs that disenfranchised millions of African Americans while…

3 More Facts That Disprove the Bible

Image
Once again I will preface this article by reminding you that it is not necessary to disprove a thing that has not met its own burden of proof. If the claims in the bible are true, these claims must be proven before belief in them is warranted.

   However per request from a subscriber, I have compiled 3 additional facts to continue to my article, 3 Facts That Disprove the Bible !!! Here goes...


1. Irrefutable DNA evidence that there were NEVER only two humans alive at any point in time. And likewise, there is zero support for a simultaneous genetic bottleneck of all animal species, including humans, about 4,000 years ago due to being restricted to a single wooden boat.

2. The bible claims that the sky is a solid shell — a firmament separating the "waters" of the sky from the waters of the earth. Only scientifically illiterate people believe this.

3.  “The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and af…

Book of the Day "White Fragility: Why It's so Hard for White People to Talk About Racism"

Image
"The New York Times best-selling book exploring the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged and how these reactions maintain racial inequality."   White Fragility is a "vital, necessary, and beautiful book," Michael Eric Dyson.
 Anti-racist educator Robin DiAngelo shines a light on white fragility and "allows us to understand racism as a practice not exclusive to "bad people."

  Referring to the, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt and by behaviors including argumentation, silence, and other defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially. These behaviors, in turn, prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue.

   In this in-depth exploration, the author examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.

Image
Jay-Z  has won the race to become the first official billionaire in hip-hop!!! Beating the likes of moguls such as Sean 'Diddy' Combs and Dr. Dre to the threshold, according to a new cover story published in Forbes. This also makes Jay-Z the fifth African American in the country to reach this milestone.

  Forbes says Jay,  “has accumulated a fortune that conservatively totals $1 billion!”
   How'd he do it?
  It's all thanks to his business acumen and diverse portfolio of investments, acquisitions, and deals.   
  “Jay-Z’s steadily growing kingdom is expansive, encompassing liquor, art, real estate (homes in Los Angeles, the Hamptons, Tribeca) and stakes in companies like Uber.”

“To calculate his net worth, we looked at the artist’s stakes in companies like Armand de Brignac champagne—applying our customary discount to private firms—then added up his income, subtracting a healthy amount to account for a superstar lifestyle,” states the report.
  Here is a breakdown…

Image
New York Attorney General Letitia James, the first black woman to be elected to statewide office in New York, announced Wednesday that her office received a report alleging that a teacher at The Chapel School in Bronxville simulated a “slave auction” with black students in two fifth-grade social studies classes in March.

  “This type of problematic instruction won’t be tolerated here in New York,” Attorney General Letitia James said.




   The 4th grade teacher in a Watertown, New York school district has been placed on administrative leave after having white students bid on black classmates in a mock slave auction.

  The district declined to identify the teacher,but claims she/he has been placed on leave during a district investigation launched after parents complained that she "exercised poor judgment in teaching a recent lesson."

  A mother of one the students had this to say...
“He and another Black child were put up in the middle of the class and told they were now slaves…
