Knowledge is Power….Enforce it…

…

Peak ankh shit
why is she naked?
why are the women in these always naked?
the infant who’s gender is not yet determined, but it looks like the artist is leaning toward male is covered
what I take from this is once again is black women are never to be covered  or protected, even as their sole purpose to ankhs as the manufactures of their sons, sons who are to be protected and covered at all costs
Open your third eye to that.

True, but how do you know it’s not homage to the male artist’s mother? Maybe his mom read while pregnant with him and to him and he felt it played a huge role in the man that he became. I haven’t read too far into “ankh shit” but outside of those extremist that make ridiculous memes, it’s actually very intriguing, from what I have read. As far as her being naked what would you rather? It seems to me that you’re dissecting the piece by the surface level qualities of nudity and gender. I take it as the recognition of power of the transference of energy. Sure it would’ve been nice if there was a set of twins in there, I guess. Also, there are “girls” who have low-cuts and wear glasses so the gender up to you to assume lol (even though I’m sure his intention was for the offspring to be seen as a boy)

he couldn’t put clothes on his own momma?
With illustrations such as these the womans face is either half way or partially missings
she is always naked
she is always thin yet her belly is always full with child and her breasts perky and a boy is always inside
it’s not about celebrating women as much as it is the pornification of black women.

all ankh images have a black woman not dark skinned, with an afro, naked or close to naked where you can see her thin waist and thighs, usually being the major foundation of her family or the black community, never next to a black man in a partnership way, just either leaning on him, or her carrying him, but never equal. that don’t mean shit. people been drawing that since the 70’s and nothing’s changed for black people yet. 
I’ve only ever seen one positive image of black love done by an afrocetric man (mshindo9) where it wasn’t some covert sexist imagery (see it here I think it’s dope : http://mshindo9.deviantart.com/art/Blood-Of-The-Titans-cover-fin-278317031) . 

Thank you for pointing him out. He is one of the few doing it right.

i was so bothered when i first saw this picture 

Yea nah, if she can wear jewelry, she can wear clothes.  An Afro is not the only natural hair style.  I know a bunch of misogynistic “Afrocentric” guys and it’s actually disheartening to feel that they only value their knowledge as a means of being exotic.  Many of them aren’t powerful or uplifting or forward thinking at all.  They just want to look “conscious”.

People need to understand that the results of the doll test and tests like it are consistently anti-Black.. that one little girl is a symbol for the children that attribute bad features to Blackness, she isn’t a stand-out case at all.. It’s not “her individual problem” with Blackness at all.

today, my school hosted an exhibit for suicide awareness day. the exhibit included 1,100 backpacks in representation of the number of lives that are lost to mental illness each year on college campuses. many of these backpacks were donated by the families that lost loved ones and had their stories attached. i’m so proud of my school for bringing attention to such a serious issue.

An Emotional Second Marriage in Tennessee

Toni Withers and Samuel Stewart, Jr. were both widowed after having been married for many years, but when they met at a friend’s karaoke party there was instant chemistry.  They discovered that they were both very family-oriented and loved karaoke, music, and dancing.

After a period of dating, Toni and Samuel were positive that true love had found them again, and they had a beautiful, standing room only wedding in front of over 300 family members and friends.
