“African spirituality” emerging as a new pseudo denomination ultimately an extension of Eurocentric exoticifcation of Africa. We see the loose generalization...

Africa’s History did not start with Slavery

It takes more than a horrifying transatlantic voyage chained in the filthy hold of a slave ship to erase someone’s culture–Maya Angelou

  • First Alcohol Prohibition, Now Marijuana Prohibition

    Pro·hi·bi·tion – is the illegality of the manufacturing, storage, transportation, sale, possession, and consumption of thing, or a period of time during which such illegality is enforced.
    First Alcohol prohibition now, Marijuana Prohibition. The 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution, the supreme law of the land, was the law that declared it illegal. However, the Volstead Act created exceptions for medicinal and religious uses, sounds familiar to me. During the times of prohibition, Rumrunners and Bootleggers were looked at as “Gangsters” and “Criminals”, while Drug Stores like Walgreens were free to sell alcohol because they categorized it as Medicine which allowed them to sell it to patients who had prescriptions from their physician.

    Today there is Marijuana Prohibition in the United States. Many African American families have been imprisoned because of marijuana prohibition and are targeted by the government through the so called “War on Drugs,” which entire goal was the Mass Incarceration of African Americans. Today’s “Drug Dealers” are yesteryears’ Rumrunners and Bootleggers. Knowing this begs one to ask “Should America End Marijuana Prohibition?” I mean how fair is it for Entrepreneurs to be punished with imprisonment while Pharmaceutical Companies, Big Businesses, and Wall Street are free to operate as a Dispensary, Sell Stock, and profit off of Marijuana?
