Katt Williams: Dave Chappelle Is Funnier Than Me

Yooooooo this shit gets deep

Damn damn damn …

damn …

real REAL deep

Oh.My.God. This is really scary when you think about it, and the more I think about it, the more I’m getting pissed off.  You guys need to see this

Damnnnnnnn……. 😱

don’t sleep him. he was preaching

I’ve always thought Katt was deep. One of the few comedians from this generation from that can speak about politics and racism and make his audience understand it. Most like Richard Pryor in my opinion.

#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

Sigh…once again Hollywood don’t love us (black girls). I wonder if Aaliyah’s family had a say. So ya’ll really couldn’t find a brown girl, idc if Zendaya is mixed it’s not recognizable unless someone told you.
Apparently (see link) she will be playing Aaliyah in the upcoming biopic.

"People, I Just Found Out The Loss Of Spiritual Mother, The Late, Great Ruby Dee. I’m Crushed By This Bad News And I Know Ruby Has Already Been Embraced In A Warm Loving Hug From Her Life Partner Of 57 Years, Mr. Ossie Davis.

It Has Been One Of My Great Blessings In Life To Work With Two Of The Finest Artist And Activist. Ruby And Ossie Were In The Battlefields With Paul Robeson, Malcolm X And Dr. Martin Luther King. Ruby And Ossie Served As A Living Example That One Could Be An Artist And A Activist Too,That One Could Be An Artist And Still Deal With What It Means To Be A Black Woman And A Black Man In These United States.

God Bless You Ruby Dee. God Bless You Ossie Davis.

The Both Of You Told Us ‘To Always Do The Right Thing’.”

Spike Lee

The side of Michael Jackson they don’t show you: his ACTUAL RACE.

On 6th February 1984, after winning an unprecedented number of AMA awards Michael spoke to black publication JET magazine about people in his life he was thankful for; Stevie Wonder, who expresses pride of race in his music.

“That’s why I love Stevie Wonder’s album called Songs in The Key of Life… He had a song called Black Man and I just jumped up screaming when I heard that record because he’s showing the world what the Black man has done and what other races have done… He named it Black Man and all these people who have got the album sing it. And that’s the best way to bring about the truth.”
