Curtis Mayfield – Right On For The Darkness

curtis may album-back-to-the-world

Dead Presidents may be the first reminder for some of this song but not for me. My father was big on music and would at times lock himself away with a j (blunt) playing classics. This was one of those classics, full of that 70’s soul Curtis speaks with conviction about America, the real America.Curtis Mayfield – Right On For The Darkness

Double Impact

This weekend I got a chance to watch a classic through the good people at Youtube. It seems Youtube is offering free full length movies provided by Crackle. I know most people by now know how to get anything they want off the net illegally but for the shook ones this is highly recommended. The movie I discovered was a gem from my childhood, Double Impact. The film was cutting edge allowing Van Damme to play dual roles side by side w/himself. The movie is about 2 brothers (Van Damme) who are separated as babies when their parents are killed off violently. One gets taken to America to live the privileged life while the other grows up in the streets of Hong Kong. 25 years later they meet for the first time and team up to avenge their parent’s deaths. Van Damme does an excellent job playing both roles, showing both a darker and lighter side to him. They don’t make em like this no more, pure action with extra blood! HHTT APPROVED Watch Double Impact Now!

Rev. Barack Obama

obama-faith-outreach-na02-wide-horizontal1

Much props and respect goes to Obama for winning the presidency and giving America hope. All that aside I’m sick and tired of the comparisons to JFK, Obama is young and bitches feel him but his swag is totally different from Kennedy. Kennedy loved to fuck bitches and America knew it. When Obama speaks, word to Allah he sound like a god damn preacher. Now I know people are going to come against me, but it’s true. When Rev. Obama gives a speech (slash sermon) he sounds like he bout to anoint a nigga.

 

JFK may have been the man with the bitches, but Obama is the man period. America needs to get over the race thing and embrace Barack as the president and not “the 1st black president”.

HHTT Invades Barnes & Noble Pt. I (Black History Month)

black-history-at-bn

This past weekend Rev and I got up at Barnes & Noble to meet and discuss business. Barnes & Noble provides an excellent atmosphere to work and gives the serenity of a czar’s palace. Ok enough of the flattery, tell me why the fuck in the prime of black history month one of Americas #1 booksellers only has two tables dedicated to African American history?? I went into the muthafucka happy to read books and shit then realized it’s the same bullshit.
All that aside we had a excellent time peep the clip.

Manifest Destiny (Blood by Expansion)

american_progress

America has always had the belief to expand to the west by any means necessary. America therefore embraced the manifest destiny idea; some so wild even to include the total absorption of all North America. Advocates believe this is good and used “Manifest Destiny” to justify the move and slaughter of indigenous people. The term was first thrown around in the 1840’s to promote the annexation of the Western U.S. What gets me is how Americans moved to a land not of there own, set a flag in the ground and decided it was destiny to push all those off the land by force (if needed) to expand. The slaughter of the Indigenous people is one of the biggest tragedies in American history that is never fully explained in history books or after school specials. I know there are some who will go with the religious side of the doctrine, saying that it is our duty to enlighten the world with Christ and all that, but to me its simply blood by expansion. The slaughter and movement of Native Americans onto reservations reached its height in the late 19th century. The government intended to destroy tribal governments and break up Indian reservations under the progressive Manifest Destiny Doctrine. The pure arrogance of this doctrine was embodied in Albert T. Beveridge when he spoke before the senate.


God has not been preparing the English-speaking and Tectonic peoples for a thousand years for nothing but vain and idle self-admiration. No! He has made us the master organizers of the world to establish system where chaos reigns… He has made us adepts in government that we may administer government among savages and senile peoples. Theodore Roosevelt, John Cabot Lodge, and John Hay, each in turn, endorsed with a strong sense of certainty the view that the Anglo-Saxon [Americans] was destined to rule the world. Such views expressed in the 19th century and in the early 20th century continues to ring true in the minds of many non-Indian property owners. The superiority of the “white race” is the foundation on which the Anti-Indian Movement organizers and right-wing helpers rest their efforts to dismember Indian tribes.”

And for those holier than thou, justify this.

President Barack Hussein Obama

 

HISTORY HAS BEEN MADE……

barack-obama-2

When I found out Barack won I cried, I cried because I thought about all the pain, all the hurt America has been through. I pictured MLK finally smiling seeing his dream come to fruition. So many emotions ran through me, I thought about Rosa to Tommie Smith to Huey Newton to Brother Malcom to Marcus Garvey, so many have died, so many have struggled. I’m so happy I can tell my sons yes, you can truly be anything you want when you grow up. I never thought I would live through something so paramount not just for African Americans but for AMERICANS as a whole.

SPACE ELEVATOR

This shit is sick how could I not write on this!  Japan Space Elevator Assoc (JESA) is working on an elevator that would start on earth and extend to a space docking station, allowing humans and other things to be transported through. A carbon nanotube would be used to wire the elevator lift and they predict to begin construction around 2030 but it might be later. Can you imagine hopping in a high-powered elevator and actually being beyond the night sky? The future is real son, HOVERBOARDS DON’T FLOAT ON WATER UNLESS YOU GOT POWER!!!!

 

And yes this is real talk.
