The Burning Monk- Thich Quang Duc (1963) sat down in meditation position at Saigon. He then poured gasoline all over his body and set himself alight. He maintained his calm meditative position and did not even make a sound while his body burned and then within a few minutes toppled over. His body was consumed but his heart remained intact. It was placed in the Reserve Bank of Vietnam and is called the Symbol Of The Holy Heart.

He wanted to show people that we can do incredible things when we practice mindfulness. He also wanted to show the world the injustice that was being perpetrated on the Buddhist religion and community by a repressive regime. Needless to say, it worked pretty well and the government softened up on the Buddhist. He is a remarkable symbol of the incredible power the mind holds.

Wow this is focus and faith

Most of the time I can’t stand Kanye, but he does inspire me to want to be greater at my craft.

MEET FASHION ARTIST/ILLUSTRATOR PAPA OPPONG 

"I’ve always loved the idea of designing clothes. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been drawing fashion figures and styling them myself on paper. I remember how I would get into so much trouble in primary, junior and senior high school for drawing on the school desks, my class work and homework books. I grew up in a home where everyone was generally very fashion conscious. My mum Cynthia and her sister, my aunt Stella were very trendy women who wore very fashionable clothes. Even when I was younger, my mum and aunt would ask me what I thought of their outfits and sometimes even ask me to make fashion suggestions. As time went by, I became more and more fascinated with fashion and art and would go on to watch a lot runway shows and study designers that I admired." (read more on vlisco)

My Last Buzzing Post and My Following Inboxes

Fam my last post was not me. I should’ve stated it wasn’t and I apologize but most of my followers know that i’m a male and I didn’t think it would be so popular. It was a fb friend that i’m currently trying to convince to share and share any other similar encounters that her and the other two black families in her neighborhood has had to deal with. In a couple hours there are I think at this moment over 13,000 notifications. I decided not to share her name and location until I get permission from her. Now my inboxes has been one major case of polarity. People thinking it was me has shown respect and have been highly disrespectful! Most of the ones being sincere are White, women wanting to know if the children are safe and if they’re alright. Black and anons have been showing love too and that is awesome  but ones are using ridiculous language calling this person a liar and darting stupid insults. Black People, Really?  I have not responded to anyone yet but for the ones disrespecting you are the black reincarnations and new seeds who have kept African Americans in the lowest state of consciousness in these days. Ones are just setting the foundations and we just carry out the mental and physical annihilation. We say that black people can’t be racist when we are racist to our own. We have the means and have been keeping ourselves in our current state. I don’t like to use the race category but that’s what kind of times we are in and we have systematically kept our own race down! We are a bunch of fucking racist and we are in denial further making the situation much worse. 50 years from now there will be women doing the same to protect their families because we have allowed ones like he KKK to survive and have a fucking website to promote and convert smh. African Americans will always be in the state we are in and worse. Africans don’t even respect us. I live in DC and they can’t stand us especially the elder Ethiopians. I still truly love them though. Anyways, I can’t get a fucking cab from a black man in broad daylight much less after a night of fun. Whites are initiating gentrification especially on famous Georgia Ave. where Howard University is and the black businesses are so excited the whites are coming in. Redecorating the venues, being so polite that it’s corny, black images coming down off of venue walls different music etc. Excited that Massa is coming to town. We are racist to ourselves! Thank You Willie Lynch!! The downhill trot continues.

"I live in a neighborhood where my husband & I are 1 of the 3 Black families that live here.. Tonight the KKK knocked on our door!!! I was already looking out the window and seen them coming down my driveway. I screamed for my children to come upstairs in my room and into my master bath. . As I seen there faces in fear.. my mind flash back to Malcom X. My oldest understand but not the rest. My husband prides his self on teaching his wife & family self defense when he not home…. My heart was pounding! Palms sweating! Voice weak.. I look at my son.. And my mind drifted to Micheal Brown, Treyvon.Martin, Shawn Bell. WE legal over here.. everything registered! As the knocks kept coming .. I mustard up the voice strength to say just a minute! My body weak.. but my mind strong! I open the door.. Scope on! Beam on! Safety off!!! WHAT CAN I DO FOR YALL!!! Cause you at THE WRONG HOUSE! #FacesPriceless!! I will Protect. My Home, My Children, MY LEGACY!!!"
