BE-AWARE (T.V.)

watchshitthinkshit

A lot of you teens may not realize your eyes are a portal and they record information, the same is true with your ears and mouth.

It is important to watch what you are listening to and watching on TelLIEvision! A lot of the new “reality” shows like Love & Hip Hop, Bad Girls Club, Real House wives & all that other Bullsh*t may be entertaining & full of drama but it is also damaging and programming your mind. You attract what you think & if you are tuned in to nothing but BULLSHIT soon all you will think about or entertain is BULLSHIT!!

If you are going to watch this foolery just try to do it in moderation! There is nothing wrong with a little ratchetness every once in a while but keep a balance!!

Inspirational Quote Of The Week

knowyourvalue

When YOU understand your self worth YOU accept YOUR perfections and flaws and learn how to make them work for your greater good. When YOU learn to accept YOURSELF others will learn to accept YOU for who you are. Then there is no need to send a representative of YOURSELF pretending to be someone else to gain others approval of you. Value YOURSELF and others will follow suit!

JUST BE YOU, EVERYONE ELSE IS ALREADY TAKEN!!! ;)

dorthydandrige

The picture above is Dorothy Dandridge as Melmendi, Queen of Ashuba in the 1951 film, Tarzan’s Peril.

Dorothy Dandridge broke down racial barriers and set the path for Black Actresses. Queen Dorothy was the FIRST Black female to be nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Actress category for her role in the movie Carmen Jones. Queen Dorothy was also the first Black Woman to appear on the cover of Life magazine.

We know how society was back then so most people were unable to fully appreciate her during her lifetime simply because she was a Black Woman. Queen Dorothy is a LEGEND , and she will forever remain the epitome of Beauty and Grace!!

Dorothy Jean Dandridge born November 9, 1922 and died September 8, 1965 under mysterious circumstances at the age of 42 was an African-American film and theatre Actress and Popular Singer.

The Beautiful Dorothy Dandridge performed as a vocalist in venues such as the Cotton Club and the Apollo Theater. During her early career, she performed as a part of The Wonder Children, later The Dandridge Sisters and appeared in a succession of films, usually in uncredited roles. In 1954, she was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in Carmen Jones, and, in 1959, she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Porgy and Bess. She is the subject of the 1999 HBO biographical film, Introducing Dorothy Dandridge. She has been recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
