Rest in peace Joan Rivers and Robin Williams! It makes me so sad but they taught me that one of the most important things in life is to laugh and they both caused a MASSIVE amount if it, not only at life but at themselves too. They both have inspired me and everyone around them to find the funny things in life even when life is not so funny. Their legacies will live on forever in our hearts and inspire more people to be themselves and to freely express that with freedom #legends #liveforever #tolaughterandbeyond ❤️

Dr. King's Dream was about Integration, but.... Are the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons of the world perpetuating segregation and oppression?_____________ It seems that WE as a People have moved past that era, but they haven't. As Black Americans we are now the cause of our own demise, and the civil rights "leaders" are NOT focused on the REAL problems at hand... WHY? Because it doesn't make the news? In addition to the rallies, protests, marching, and vigils... WE need to move past the segregation era, and focus & act on the real problems that are affecting the Black community and NOT wait on THEM to do it for us. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr has done his job, now let's do ours by ending Black on Black crime and making the family bond strong.
