"This stuff sounds so orchestrated. They are doing all they can to divide the communities and have them fighting among themselves. If this event was real, it was a staged to get a certain effect, and this approach to dividing the masses has been…"
NB Commentary: Personally, I don't think it's about race. I am sure they will be hard pressed to find a jury that either didn't hear about the allegations or never heard of Bill Cosby. I mean next to Oprah and Barack Obama, what other internationally known Black person have we heard of coming out of Hollywood…See More
NB Commentary: Bill Cosby is about to be back in the news. After a little over a year or so, the media attention will be focused on him once again. Unless of course they give us something else to focus on. Which is quite likely.I am going to create a video playlist… and hopefully I won't get too distracted from this project. But I…See More
About Me:(Generous response attract more interest)
My birth name is Sybil. Most of my life I wondered why my mother would give me such a name, as I was teased endlessly by my peers. Additionally, my last name was Fequa(fee cue). Now with a strange first and last name, I barely had a defense. In time I came to understand the powerful significance of my birth name and so much more. I also learned that my last name represented my Creole roots from Louisiana.
I was raised Catholic, a devout Catholic till I joined the Nation of Islam. NOI forced me towards my African roots in a strong way, but not strong enough to link me to the rudimentary spirit of my African Ancestors. I saw it in the church, somewhat in the mosque, but it was not until I connected to Ausar-Auset, Vodun, Yoruba and Akan communities, that it all came together for me.
I am a revolutionary and am surrounded by revolutionaries. Or they pretend to be, just for the sake of conversation. When I step out there, I am a spirit woman first, a Gatekeeper, and then I am everything else.
I completely love my African Roots and Culture and its many manifestations across the Diaspora, good and not so good. I once wondered about my many religious travels, but through them I have learned to appreciate the tolerance, patience and understanding it has afforded me when meeting others who manifest their spirituality differently then I do.
