TNFro Is Reading…Reflecting on the meaning of Juneteenth, Reading and commenting on the Emancipation Proclamation and the TX Diss

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-iia5p-1253d30

The Emancipation Proclamation
January 1, 1863
By the President of the United States of America:
A Proclamation.
“Whereas, on the twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit:
“That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.”
How far we are from the totality of these words, still fighting for our right to exist and participate fully in American society. African Americans were bought here as slaves, forced to toil and build a country that hates us for it and refuses to back wages, reparations, restrict our right to vote, and any infraction real or imagined met out with an instant death sentence without a trial. Yet, we thrive and live to create in a world still trying to figure out if we have a place in it…ain’t that a bitch.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-dqqyv-1241bbd

Reading or Listening to Memphis The Audible and renaming my online bookstore Far From Beale St. Books

      I listen to the character Miriam in Memphis and Dealing with her domestic abuser and all I can hear are the lyrics to Lizzo’s, Truth Hurts,

“Why men great ’til they gotta be great?
Wooh
I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that bitch

You coulda had a bad bitch, non-committal
Help you with your career, just a little
You’re supposed to hold me down
But you’re holding me back
And that’s the sound of me not calling you back” GIRL?!??

Quarks Bar Pop Culture Shenanigans

       The Jubilee is Finally Integrated

       Hate Watching 90 Day

        P-Valley Musings

Side Eye Side Bars and the stupid-ish people say The Donkey of Week Award goes to Rep Long of Ohio

Episode 282 TNFro Is Reading Feeling Safe for 5 Minutes, Black Excellence, Trash TV and Regrettable Viewing, Quark’s Bar and Popular Culture Shenanigans

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-32yqk-1238a75

I recorded this episode and sent it for editing prior to the Uvalde School Shooting and right after the Buffalo Domestic Terrorist Shooting…I am back to “head-on-swivel” and not wanting to go outside. Some of that is cured by my Black and Deck Bug Zapper, but even being strapped I still am weary to trust any of ya’ll. 
In this episode I wax poetic about being home in VA and back in TN and feeling safe, that lasted 5 minutes, because Jose and they went crazy at the elementary school in TX…my reaction to the talking heads Abbot, Cruz, Rubio check out previous episodes 58 and 59.
I have watched lots of trash TV because I can’t stand this news cycle…And of course, I talk books because after all this is TNFro Is Reading…
StarTrek_DS9_QuarksBarVintageLogo-Womens_Rela...
My comments on pop culture seem lame now…but let me know what you think…
Always remember to be kind…
I used to scoff at people making this statement. Maybe because of its simplicity or maybe because it sounded more like an admonishment that I was being everything but kind. But then when I started investigating it for myself that’s when I realized, that I was confusing politeness with kindness. Politeness is a fake superficial manner in which required no investment no self-reflection. But being kind is an adjective, it is an action. If you are kind to yourself first it’s like exercise memory you will continue and will be kind to others. Let that sit with you for a while. I am being kind to myself. I’ll be kind to others. Very simple. Repeat.
Lean into the spirit of the New Year by counting your blessings, giving to others, and spreading happiness! I know I will!
It is the beginning of a New Year so be kind to your mind and others. Give love to receive love.

Episode 273 TNFro Is Reading…It must be a quota because no Black Woman Can Be that brilliant(Boils My Blood)…My personal rage at the ongoing War Of Mediocrity

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-8zwnz-11d9dbb

It’s still Women’s History month in this episode I will be celebrating the lives of Dr. Corbett of vaccine fame as well as Judge Brown-Jackson, The first African-American woman nominated and will probably become the first black female justice on the Supreme Court. These African-American women who have excelled are still questioned because of their amazing intellect the higher they climb the more people will question because they can’t believe it because of their own limitations. Another product of white supremacy is people like the mediocre Chump family and the Tucker Carlson’s of the world. These wagers in mediocrity only want an even playing field if they are given the advantage and it makes me sick.
The COVIK-panorama still wages on the numbers are down but China is having its own omicron surge Western Europe is now seeing another surge and there is a new variant called the Delta -Cron which seems to be some weird Delta-Omicron Franken-Rona mash up.

IMG_3886.jpeg

I also talk about what I’m watching when I’m reading and what I’m writing and also going on about tomfoolery in the world.
