The Black College Experience

Being a college graduate from a HBCU I felt that I had to shed light on all of the positive things that tend to get overlooked when people speak on the topic of Historical Black Colleges!  I also wanted to show that true we may not all agree on everything but that still does not mean we should not find a way to work together and I feel that these pictures I snapped while attending my former university's homecoming weekend events show unity and a sense of love at its best on an HBCU's Campus!

Check out some of my work!

Creative Flow

Even-though I've been crazy busy it has not stopped my creative flow here are some pics of my latest work!

A pic of me that I shot and edited prior to the hair cut and removing my dread locs, this one is all about fighting with self, your are constantly in conflict with the right thing you should do and the thing that you want to do! And how even choosing the right thing can make you appear as a villain to those who don't understand your choices! "The Hero or the Villain"

A pic of me that I shot and edited "My Self Portrait"

The Color Of Unconditional Love

 Morning Family I know I've been away for a while but its been a super busy fall for me so I do apologize! But as you may already know I have been one of the contributing writers for the "Romance" section in OliveCoco Magazine now for some time.  If you haven't already checked out OliveCoco Magazine you need to do so asap! Follow the link and there you will find a plethora of my other columns.  Today I wanted to share with you one of my most recent columns because I thought this was a great topic and Im interested in hearing you all's thoughts on the topic of Unconditional Love and the many shades of gray that it operates in.

When I say we live in shades of gray what’s the first thing that comes to mind?  Most would say that it means we live in a world where nothing is simply black and white!  Others may say that it simply means that we chose to acknowledge something’s and ignore others and use the shades of gray as a way of justifying our biases!  Then you have those that would say there is no such thing as living in shades of gray everything in life is either black or white!   Well, to answer the question accurately we may need to ask ourselves another question first which might appear initially to be totally unrelated.  This brings me to my follow up question do we, better yet are we capable of loving someone unconditionally?  Now before you answer that question think about it long and hard!  To love unconditionally and all that, that entails is something not to be taken lightly!  From birth we are groomed to love! We come out of the womb yearning to be comforted and to have our presence be acknowledged as to say we matter too.

Thirst For Something Different!

Water is the life source of everything!  Without the physical manifestation of water here on earth nothing could or would survive! Two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen are the building blocks to this dynamic blessing called water!  We humans are a lot like water!  Shoot the majority of our metaphysical makeup is water!  And just like water we are products of our enviorment! We can be physically changed and or manipulated by our envioroments! Water can be poured into and depending on just what you pour into the water that determines rather or not if that water is no longer healthy for people to consume. Are you healthy for others to be around is your presence healthy for others to consume?

Good Morning Family!  I hope that with all of you gearing up for fall that you have not forgot about you business styling basics! I know the summer vacation and break from classes has allowed you to become a little relaxed in your wardrobe choices, but as every year we must be prepared to take it from the beach back to the boardroom!

Now I have tackled this topic before but I know that some of us men folk won't listen unless we hear it from a woman's mouth! We all have said this to ourselves plenty of times before "yeah I heard what my boi said but as long as the ladies like it I could care less!"  With that being said I felt that if you're not going to listen to me then just maybe you will listen to the phenomenal, the very fashion-forward and just as equally attractive June Ambrose!  Fellas, pull out you pen and paper and take notes!

Men Of Color In Color!! "Where Color Is Always In Season!"

Good Day Family!!! Today is all about my Latino, Black, Asian and Biracial brothers.  For some of you this may be a shocker and for others you may already be well aware of this fact, which is, men of color look good in color. 

 So with that being said all of my family member's who are still hanging on to those white tees like they are some type of stock and bond, let them go!  True Jeezy and Jay-Z maybe trying to cultivate this new all black trend but fact is that color still captures more attention then the absecne of it the proof is in the pudding! The time is now to walk out of the black and white era into steaming color.

1.) COLOR YEAR ROUND:  Yes color year round is cool!  The old school fashionistas will tell you

What up Family hope all is well! Today I’m going to speak to all of you all who feel that the world of fashion should fit in your little box. I’m going to speak to those who get comfortable in one trend or fashion movement and when a new one comes along you have problems digesting the new!  Wake Up!!!! Fashion essentially is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  The only thing that may change is the functionality and or fabrication but at the bare roots of it all is still all the same!  I lead off with this because I am going to tackle one of the biggest issues with new and old hip-hop heads as well as with new and old fashionistas!  The topic “MEN IN SKINNY JEANS,” other wise know as the tight jeans!  The reason I’m addressing this is because enough is enough! People, the skinny jean for men are nothing new, and at one point YES MEN OF COLOR TOO wore the tight jeans/pants! Need proof?  

Grandmaster Flash!!!!
