Shakka Ahmose “The Codex-Game Over- Revisited; 56 Arrows-Horus has RISEN-Day 2″

rapgod

Greetings Shakka. I hope this message finds you in great health! This is day two of 56 Ahau em pedjet em Madjai.  Today 11/3/2015 I am up early looking over excerpt #2 from your work The Codex-Game Over, Utterance 388 681a.   I am delighted today because my examination of your second excerpt feels much like a minimum day in grade school! I do not have alot to write today because my analysis was cut short when I noticed that you are in great error (again) comparing Utterance 388 681a “Horus has Risen” to 1 Corinthians 15:20 “Now Christ has Risen”. It would take a person skilled in Medu Netcher, or maybe just a researcher armed with only the propensity to check an authors source material to find out that excerpt 2, “Horus is RISEN” IS NOT IN THE PYRAMID TEXT AT Utterance 388 681a. See the photo below Shakka (do…

If All Lives Matter, Why Is My Shirt Bothering You?

Since the death of Michael Brown, our country has been embroiled in one of the most sustained national debates about race and racism since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.  This debate seems to have crystallized into two mantras.  One side insists “Black Lives Matter” while the other side retorts, “All Lives Matter.”  I can’t help but notice that both sides of the debate believe not only that they are on the side of justice and equity, but that their opponents are not.

A few weeks ago, while visiting some college friends in Richmond, VA, I set out to try and provide some clarity to this debate. I packed my “Black Kids Matter” t-shirt and prepared for a social experiment.

Happy Birthday, James Baldwin! An Inside Look At The Life Of One Of America’s Greatest Wordsmiths

News One

baldwin-rustin

Novelist, essayist, and playwright James Baldwin (pictured) stands out as one of America’s most-treasured wordsmiths, notable for his bold ruminations on race, sexuality, and other subjects considered too controversial for the time of his creative peak.

As a homosexual man, some of Baldwin’s work focused on not only the complexities of the role of Blacks in America, but also that of gay men who faced atrocious criticism and prejudice during his climb in to the literary ranks.

Baldwin and his mother, Emma, moved to Harlem, leaving behind his father who
struggled with drug abuse. She would marry preacher David Baldwin and the family lived under harsh conditions.

Baldwin’s stepfather was said to be abusive to both him and his siblings, and when he died in 1943 while James was a teen, Harlem rioted on the day of his funeral – an event that shaped much of Baldwin’s writing style.
