black excellence

No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.
Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.
Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.
So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.
As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”
Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information, including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.
When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.

The thing that’s so disgusting about the murders of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Sean Bell etc (a very long list) is that it’s not like we’re trying to figure out who killed them. We know perfectly well. We’re just trying to figure out if that black kid deserved to die. They’re humanity is put on trial, like being a person wasn’t enough. Black people literally have to prove that we’re worthy of living.

My last retwist was rough.  My boyfriend had to talk me through it and stop me from combing out my hair.  Then, more recently, I came to the decision that I should write down all the reasons why I am locing. Yeah….I gotta do that. ASAP. Especially since the next retwist is coming and I get incredibly frustrated. 

I feel like all the new growth I gained since day one of my journey is NOT locked. As much as my hair is budding, after every wash it completely falls apart. And yet, I cannot NOT wash my hair. No fucking way. 

This journey is nothing but a rollercoaster.  This week I was feeling AWESOME. They styles, the way my hair laid, and spritzing my hair didnt make it unravel.  Progress? I dont even know anymore but fuck it. 

They gettin fat and there is major handtime. Whooo hoooo! I’m approaching month #3 (October 1st).  

Next retwist: I am thinking of doing it with water and oil only.  Maybe aloe vera gel (small amount into a mixture).  I have been using eco styler gel but I fear that I may have buildup.  I use Dr. Bronners Peppermint soap to wash by diluting it in a spray bottle.  Next wash, I will most likely add the soap directly to my hair without diluting. 

The process though 😩🙊 @lil_miss_congeniality @nicole_sal_art

I literally crave affection. It’s not about sex. I crave somebody to cuddle with me, and to lay their head on my lap. I crave kisses, holding hands and running my thumb across theirs. Just looking at someone and thinking “how did I get this lucky”.
