This is from March of 1989 and was on the #3 rated show in the country. I’m having a hard time imagining anything similar today because so many people are committed to the myth that this lesson has been learned.

kohthefacedealer:

*long suffering sigh*
By Raven saying that she was “not African American” and perceived herself as “colorless” she joined the coalition of black people who feel that they have “moved past race” and they “don’t believe labels”. These New Blacks (term coined by Pharrell, a New Black himself) deny their blackness. The reason why this is so problematic is because African Americans have been told for centuries that who we are, what we are, where we come from doesnt matter. We’ve been stripped from our backgrounds so much already, why would you want to distance yourself further from from something that big a part of you?

…and no further explanation need.

Having insomnia last night, I started scrolling through my Twitter favorites and came across a Flickr link from @evanbrockett’s account. It’s Kylie at about 3 months old. I remember this day, in TriBeCa. Her dad was trying to record and shoot some of his own projects at DD172 (thank you Dame, Coodie and Chike!) and we took a few hours to go to the park and take photos. Those days were magical looking back. I think my first IG photos is Kylie sleep in the studio with Dame Dash’s daughter. I’m forever grateful for those experiences. 🙏🙏
