Kate Beckinsale: When Over 40 Looks Better Than 20! ***messymandella***

          Women spend thousands of dollars on  cosmetics and skin care lines, with the sole purpose and effort to look more youthful,to hide their age.
We have a billion dollar industry in aging products alone,because being older is deemed less attractive.
When men go through their mid-life crisis, they search for any signs that they are still attractive,and it is a plus if the woman is the closer to the age of the daughter vs. the age of the mother.

        According to the tabloids and infomercials,we must eliminate any signs of skin maturity and nature taking it’s course, right?
No!
Angelina Jolie is breath-taking, the older she gets the increasing of her natural aging process taking place.

       She looks organically elegant,and she still raises her children and lends her time to charity work. Angelina, didn’t get her cheeks higher, duck lips,or an obvious eye lift.
Gabrielle Union is a doll,and we can’t forget Stacey Dash, and they all our over the age of 40 years old. All of these women’s age complimented their beauty.
         We can hide behind our own insecurities if we assume younger is gorgeous, and over 40 years older is just aging well...
Aging and weight are always issues with any women and allurement is always comparative, even before mental strength.
        However, we sometimes get better with time, if we let our natural beauty become enhanced. We don’t need to remodel our faces until we look unrecognizable.

      As a mother and an actress Kate has to compete with models that are 20 years younger, because according to standards we have set as a society, younger is better. If you enter a room with LisaRaye Mccoy Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, or  that age is simply a number. Glamour is more evident when self-confidence is part of the question.

           We must become more at ease and finally accept that women will go through an abundance of plastic surgery to compare with a younger generation. If you put Kate Beckinsale in a room full of women 20 years younger, she will steal the spot light and prove that real women age, like fine wine.

Martin Luther King Jr. Died On April 4th, 1968 In Memphis, Tennessee! ***messymandella***I HAVE A DREAM

Martin Luther King Jr. held on to the virtues of patience and “turning the other cheek” when his enemies wanted him to cease his marching and liberation for all people. In 1955 Montgomery residents of color endured mistreatment and physical abuse but stayed obedient to law enforcement to risk lynching or other arrest in a bias system. Martin Luther King created the blue print for the “Montgomery Bus Boycott” in the year of 1955 in which feminist Rosa Parks legacy and life’s work is forever linked to in our history books and Civil Rights Movement history.

MLK,the activist that instilled the legend of freedom in us still reside in our lives and family plans,if we just listen. I assume have to be shaking their heads in disgust. These people marched. were bitten by dogs, sprayed with hot fire hydrants, falsely arrested, and had crosses routinely burnt on their yard, but they didn’t stop fighting for us!

 I have told you guys  this story before, but here we go again. My great, great Grandfather Ned was a mulatto and he was a farmer who acquired land and his own garden to have the deed for a make a living off his hard work and vegetables he produced. The Klu Klux Klan in South Carolina showed up on his land and burned a cross right in his garden. They came “looking for him.” My Granddaddy had to hide in a barrel of sweet potatoes that entire night that his wife, my grandmother covered him up in so her husband,my grandaddy would not get lynched.

On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for fighting for inequality and resisting the urge These families and ‘s blood is on are hands if we are killing each other and disrespecting his life by turning our streets into a death trap for young adults and innocent children.
A rapper,Doe B, whom recently succumbed to gun shots lost his life recently in Alabama but the news also reported 48 other gun related deaths in just that area alone the same years. King marched to give us a chance to educate and be a part of history and the rebuilding of America. King died protecting our rights and to creating unity among all races and sexes.

With all the historical landmarks that Martin Luther King traveled by pounding the pavement, in and in the end dying for us.

Do you think he would be proud that we are killing each other?
Can you envision King being ecstatic that his legacy has accomplished and celebrated even though the racist in this case, has the exact color of skin as the intended victim?
Instead of marching forward we have taken ten steps back.

I love my music and movies that have obscene or derogatory language.

       I would be lying If I said I didn’t,and you consistent readers know I feel horrible about how Bobby Shmurda was treated by Epic Record.

It appears some of us don’t understand we can move mountains and live our life and still love our art from struggle from pain and oppression.We are suppose to grow from it, not repeat it!

We have to imagine the strength MLK had also understand and remember when Malcolm X was murdered he changed his militant views and embraced people of all races.

He lived for us to live as respectful human beings not savages to make a difference, and some of us don’t remember or acknowledge the fact he was murdered TODAY!

Are WE better?

Bobby Shmurda is a product of his environment, now when he has a chance to reunite with his family on the outside. Bobby will have the chance to make that difference.

If he decides to stay in the negative light and stereotypes of our men, he has no one to blame but himself. He deserves a chance, and prayers. We don’t know everything, and you don’t give up on our men unless they don’t learn from their  15th incarceration!

WE CAN ALL BE MORE!

 

 

        If we don’t live by the doctrine of betterment for our livelihood and families, King was assasignated for no reason and we are spitting on his legacy.

        My goal is to live as if Martin Luther King Jr. was looking over my shoulder,and I am sure he would tap me on my shoulder because of my temper.

I still strive to make a difference and make him proud!

Right now as I look around Chicago, Detroit, and other neighborhoods we have ruined with gang violence I am 100% ashamed and I know we have failed his legacy.

The truth is we spit on his death every time we put that colored bandana in our back pocket, and take the safety off the gun, to murder someone who would have marched beside us, if Martin Luther King Jr. had lived.

For Real***messymandella*** #SoulfulSunday

If you are willing to jump, can you jump into the unknown?

Can you step outside of your element,  and give it a chance?

I have always been a very stubborn person, that is probably why God gave me such strong intuition.

 I can feel emotions for someone,  that the public would assume is emotionless.

I  view people not by their title, or what other people think they are…

NO, I almost made that mistake , but that feeling is deep and if you are intrigued follow that feeling. Ask for respect and privacy,because they would expect that.

Some things you just can’t explain, and maybe you can’t because it is too powerful.

It is not about a kiss, or any sexual act.

The mental and spiritual connection is magnetic and so powerful, that you can’t just let it go!

Journeys and discovery take bravery and that spiritual connection.

You will never be able to explain it, unless you are chosen to feel it!

Then, You will know it is real…

NC-17 GRAPHIC- Hidden History-The Lynching Of Laura Nelson And Her Son LD In 1911***messymandella***

We discuss racism and our sole mission to unify the races.

However, to become familiar with our ancestors, it is mandatory to know why women with a strong voice, were not appreciated then, and are a constant thorn in an average man’s mind-frame.

We will  retrieve a piece of our history that society did not deem of importance and would never have a rally to clear her name of wrong doing. Of course when Laura was murdered those  pictures and whispered historians  that haunted the families and the neighbors were the proof. However the families that ended her life,  remain unmoved about the legend of Laura Nelson, that most remain hidden. Laura’s life was an uncomfortable truth, but history should never be ignored.

After shaking and crying watching  12 Years A Slave, and witnessing  Lupita Nyong’o ,with her interpretation of the molested and domestically tortured slave, “Patsy”  I  researched other female slaves. Our society must learn  the value of all women.

 

Now, we pay  homage to the woman who became  “Strange Fruit.” 

 

Here is the truth about a woman who ended up on  a lynching postcard, and lost her life unjustly just for being a  well spoken woman, with a sense of pride.
