THE GODDESS, QUEEN, PHARAOH

My name is Erika but you will often see me go by Anaiis. I'm a graduate student majoring in Museum Studies and soon will be attending somebody's school for Egyptology. I am Afrocentric, a natural sista, a positive indivdual, etc. I love NeoSoul and R&B music, African and African American Art and Culture, etc. Also just in case you are wondering, I refer to myself as THE GODDESS because I believe I am a DIVINE individual and carry myself as such. We are all Gods and Goddesses in our own right. I hope my first blog can be entertaining, insightful, helpful, and encouraging to the masses...Anyway, enjoy

My grandmother Daisy left me with some wisdom this morning that I wanted to share in the wake of her mother, my great grandmother, Mae’s passing. She said, the secret to a long life is to get yourself up out the house and go out and do something. She attributes her longevity (74) as well as the longevity of my great grandmother (98) to always getting up to work and never remaining idle for too long. My grandmother is still working and my great grandmother stopped working at the age of 95. Don’t let life pass you by. Rest in power Mae, job well done in this life and all the best in your ancestral transition. I love you.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

People defend capitalism by saying that capitalism is the only system that works. Ask someone who’s homeless how capitalism is working for them or those in sweatshops or those unable to get adequate healthcare or education. Capitalism is continuing the destruction of our earth, creating economic inequality, perpetuating classism, racism, ableism, child labor, and so much more. Capitalism doesn’t work, it kills.
