Limitless Creation, Limitless Power

One thing I talk about in my book Success Strategies for Black People, and one thing I have taught my students, is the Law of Increase. Whatever we focus on, concentrate on, increases. We can focus on the problem or the solution.  Whatever we give our energy to, we experience more of.  

In ancient times, only the privileged had access to the Law of Increase.  That was how they maintained their their power and privilege and that was how they increased it.   But we live in the information age now, and we have access to, and can use, these universal laws.  
What we give out, we get back.  Whatever energies we put out, be they negative or positive, the universe gives us back. 

Many people have an attitude of “leave it to god”. It's been called "learned helplessness". Given our experience over the last 500 years, it's understandable that people feel that way. But it's time to break out of that mentality now.  It's time to recognize our true power and our true worth. 

We have enormous power, but we don't use the power we have.  In fact, we have forgotten the power we have.  

SRT is just one way to enjoy our power.  For more information, check out Black Success:  How to Get Clear, Precise Answers.

You’re Fired! Company Terminated Employee Who Called Cops On Black Man at Swimming Pool

white woman at swimming pool
Some of us may be glad this happened.  At least, some kind of justice has been done.  A white woman was fired from her job after she phoned the police when a Black man wore socks at a swimming pool.  But it really should not have come to this. 

This is just the latest of similar stories about places such as Starbucks and Denny's. 

We are not allowed to hold meetings at Starbucks.  Nor can we stop at a gas station to buy drinks for children after a nonviolence demonstration.  Not without some white employee calling the cops on us.  But at least we can wear our socks in the pool. 

It should never come to this.  We MUST Learn to treat each other with respect. 

Niecy Nash received some very interesting responses to the spoof telephone helpline she created for racists

And then there's the Ryanair incident.  (Warning:  this contains offensive language.)  Yep, we definitely gotta avoid flying anywhere with Ryanair. 

And remember the nail shop incident? 

This nonsense really has to stop.

Interview with the Archbishop of York

John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York
The Rt. Rev. John Sentamu, Archbishop of York, is the first Black Church of England Archbishop to be ordained within the United Kingdom.  

Here, he talks about the importance of nonviolence for him as a Christian.

Z:  How are you personally affected by the violence in the world today?   

JS:  Saddened (and angry!) because:
  • Violence seems so often to be a knee-jerk reaction to either fear of personal threat or manipulation by vested interests combined with social media.
  • Targeted violence designed for maximum collateral damage hitting bystanders to the arguments, often those who have least resilience
  • Even more collateral damage to society in general – disruption of governance, daily life, resources with an undermining of trust, truth and community.  
Please can you give me one or two examples of how you practise nonviolence in your own life?

Jesus said, “blessed are the peacemakers”. Making peace means action, not passivity. With that in mind, I try to give young people a goal to aim for: that is God’s Kingdom. You can find some of the components in Matthew’s Gospel, Chapters 5 – 7. But we humans need more than good advice and good examples, so I also share with them the good news about Jesus Christ himself, who is the Prince of Peace. He gets to work within us, putting right what is wrong and through the Holy Spirit giving us dness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Surely this is how we all want to live?  

Many parents are struggling with issues around violence today. Young people are shooting and stabbing each other – I am sure you are aware of the fact that violence is increasing, both in London and across Britain. What practical advice or suggestions can you offer to parents about how to protect their children from violence, and how to prevent violence? 
  • encourage them to have a circle of trusted friends who are not all like them
  • be interested in their interests, feelings, hopes and don’t work so hard there’s no time for children
  • relax together. Don’t put children under so much pressure – positive support is better than negative sanctions
  • surround them with adults, other than family, who will be protective of them, who they can learn to trust and go to when they get to the “asserting independence” phase of their lives (role of godparents!)
  • watch age-appropriate news and other programmes with them
  • encourage them to read stories – a wonderful way of learning about the world, universe and everything else (especially themselves) and to see things in perspective.
  • there are some excellent books for children and young people about difficult topics, eg the children’s version of I Am Malala with lovely illustrations, and Michael Morpurgo’s books.
Please add any further remarks you would like to make.

Because of my Christian faith, for me, it is a privilege to belong to a church family that breaks down barriers between people of different places, cultures, backgrounds. I want young people to be able to celebrate diversity whilst also knowing we all belong together - different, but one family, sisters and brothers together.

White Woman Calls Cops 911

Shopping While Black News:  A white woman has called the police on 911 when a group of Black/African American anti-violence protesters stopped to buy drinks at a gas station.

In yet another instance of racist stupidity, the white woman, identified as "Brenda", called the cops when a group of anti-violence protesters, many of them children, ended their demonstration outside a gas (petrol) station in North Charleston, South Carolina.  The demonstrators planned to buy drinks for the children there.  Let's hope they did not spend any money at the gas station. 

Go here for more info.

As far as I am aware, the demonstrators were not arrested, as were several people in two different Starbucks several months ago.

Shopping while Black is becoming increasingly interesting.

Black History: New Revelations about Emmett Till

Okay, it's not exactly a revelation, but the white woman whose accusaion sparked the brutal murder of Emmett Till in 1955 has now, AT LAST, admitted that she lied.

The 14-year-old whistled at a white woman - that much has been made clear by his cousins,, who were present at the time of the incident.

But he DID NOT touch her inappropriately.  This white woman has FINALLY admitted that.  So she will not take that secret to her grave.

Of course, Ida B. Wells researched this many decades ago and proved that these allegations that Black men had touched or, indeed, attacked white women were completely erroneous.  They were simply a pretext, used to justify the lynching of Black men, women and children.

Go here for my blog post about Ida B. Wells.
