"You can’t go on like you’re going to start really living one day, like all this is some preamble to some great life that’s going to magically appear. I’m a firm believer that you have to create your own miracles. Don’t hold out that there’s something better waiting on the other side. It doesn’t work that way."
up working on music and my stomach is making music on its own
Watching this advertisment on old school love songs and I’m like where is the love? Todays music is filled with hate and disrespect. I just want atleast a balance back. The result of capitalism. I often hear “this is what the people want” no this is what people have grown a tolerance for. You know those songs you can not stand when you hear it at first but it plays so damn much that you actually grow a liking for it? Exactly. It’s not that I expect things to be how they were before. Everything changes, change is good with change we witness new creations. However, I just want a balance. Change is good when it is for the better not the worst. I can go on and on about this but I’ll stop there.
One of the central rituals was initiation into seven successive levels. Contemporary sources indicate this included ablutions (or baptism), purifications, chastisements, fetters and liberation, and ceremonial passwords. Frescoes at Capua (Italy) show the initiates blindfolded and kneeling. A simulated death and resurrection was probably part of the ceremony, as the ascent through the initiation grades was seen as prefiguring the ascent of the soul after death.
Mithraic initiates were ranked in a series of seven grades, each named and each under the protection of one of the planets:
- Raven (Mercury)
- Nymphus (Venus)
- Soldier (Mars)
- Lion (Jupiter)
- Persian (Moon)
- Heliodromus (Sun)
- Father (Saturn)
Easy Watermelon Sorbet
This recipe is amazing, just two ingredients : frozen watermelon & water. Actually it’s just one ingredient if you don’t count water as a ingredient. Best part? It’s fast, easy, delicious and totally healthy and without all the usual guilt. Because watermelons are usually sweet by itself, you don’t need to add any sweetners at all.
Besides, no ice cream maker is needed. Now now, you better get going and make this for yourself.
Totally going to make this!
I prefer him darker.
probably photoshop if not shoot that motherfucker…..oh and stop calling your wretched self Jamaican as u ain’t……#noblackpride
bleacher boy smfh
Yea you shitty for changing your whole skin color to be accepted
It’s never that serious.
sometimes niggas is hurt and tired
you couldn’t imagine how serious it is yo
I wouldn’t bleach my skin, but I know where homey is comin from
I considered it when I was younger
life is ruthless if you aren’t light skin
man, I’m not gonna pretend like I didn’t notice that lighter skinned people got preferential treatment over darker skinned people…
at the end of the day, it’s his life, if he’s happier this way then good for him
I’m saying, even if you don’t agree with his actions you can’t pretend like colorism isn’t super real out here
He looked better before.
Colorism is a major issue among jamaican people. To be a “brownin” is a great compliment apparently. Skin cancer is a rising medical issue there because of all the bleaching that’s happening. There are niggas out there thinking if his wife ups here bleaching process when they have a baby it’ll come out “nice and brown”. It’s really sad and not something people should make fun of. Unless we’re talking about vybz cartel…
wow some of these posters above this ^^ response are some of the most unsympathetic assholes man. colorism is real just as ashr says. he looked better darker? that’s not the fucking point. clearly enough people didn’t think so for him to feel he needed to lighten himself so much. and he is NOTICING A DIFFERENCE.
we gon deny that? shit, if i can know when i lose weight more men and people treat me better why can’t this person truthfully recognize that he is being treated qualitatively BETTER BECAUSE HE IS NOW LIGHTER.
like it’s sad he did that and yea, he gotta deal with the internalized shit. but he even acknowledged why he did it and it’s actually paying off. to be honest that says more about other people than it does about him. truly. these reactions are similar. like wtf? really?
It’s just sad that skin color changes how you’re treated and your opportunities in life.
And people don’t think it’s a problem. Wake up!!
People are treating people with light skin better… so much better than others are willing to risk skin cancer to get lighter skin. That’s a major issue! Stop sleeping.
He’s a little too ‘perfect’ but.. 💜 #luvyourmane #humpday
