positive black news

Sometimes I wonder why no one has ever celebrated me - like really promote and adore me. I always spill my soul into everyone I know - everyone I love, and I never receive the same love in return. sometimes I wonder if anyone has ever bragged about me - like started stories with “idk man.. I think I found the one” and ending stories like “nobody in here compares.” I’m always quick to wear my lovers on my sleeve - show everyone how and why they’re meant for me. I always wonder if anyone has ever prayed for me - to stay. like I prayed for them. Sometimes I wonder how long till I can stop wandering - and wondering about love.

As a black person this makes me really proud but at the same time it really frustrates me because the news never focus on the positive qualities of blacks which in reality actually out weighs the negatives but the media only focus on the negatives.. why does a 4 year old black boy cussing makes huge media headlines but a 4 year black girl genius does not……that’s what really frustrates me.

I love a good jacket, but what I love even more, is smiling and having a good time with friends. So thankful that I can finally call my agents friends. It’s a tough business to be in, so it’s nice to have people who you care about and that care about you back.

WOW. Has anyone noticed obsidian vipera/hypnotic on female ridgebacks? I was idly scrying Udun when I saw this - it looks like the clipping mask got inversed or something. It’s almost definitely an art error, but I dig it. I checked with all other breeds and genders, and they don’t seem to be affected.

Mo'Ne Davis makes Little League World Series history in three-hit shutout

Mo'Ne Davis isn’t your typical youth baseball player. The 13-year-old became the first girl to toss a complete game shutout in a Little League World Series-clinching contest Sunday thanks to a three-hit, six-strikeout effort for the Taney (Pa.) Dragons in an 8-0 victory over Newark (Del.) National. Davis hit 70 mph on the radar gun and fooled boys her own age.

Davis told The Today Show she tried softball when she was younger but eventually switched to baseball. The right-hander’s talent has earned her the respect of her male peers. “I end up striking them out and I look at my teammates and they’re laughing,” Davis said. “So I just laugh with them.” She added her baseball dreams won’t end at the LLWS. “I’ll probably either be the first female in the MLB or in the NBA,“ said the pitcher.

She’ll be the 17th girl to play in the Little League World Series in 68 years. Taney’s first game in the LLWS is Friday at 3 p.m. against South Nashville, which is representing Tennessee.

Did y'all peep this flex though? Sorry Monica Wright McCall!!! Is there anything Black girls can’t do?!

Bangladesh in Positive Light

№ 14 | news feed (unsurprisingly, today many in Bangladesh receive news  through the internet. but a lot of people continue to dive into the pages of their dailies and weeklies as soon as those are delivered in the morning. in addition to radio and television newscasts, newspapers continue to offer topics for day-long discussions and disagreements to a vast audience. it’s hard to imagine this tradition of consuming news from print media will dramatically decrease in Bangladesh any time soon, but that is of course a topic for an engaging debate)
