I wish you safety and security. As much as I’ve focused on the ills that our race! This is a pride push while these accomplishments are over shadowed by the negatives that were impairing our sense of worth. Beyond the heroics of our past, we are still in the mode and on the road to everyday contributions to American life! We, as a race, have not just stopped or slowed our creativity. You just have to sift through the traffic of information that’s every where. We have made ground breaking and major accomplishments in recent years and “Awareness” is the true Major Key in these times. More important is how you made room for reflection of our covered past and our journey of equality and justice. Today, we bare a burden that few races endure!


Back on our train of awareness of the “Black Thought” despite our recent political blow. We shall survive, such a blow only slows our progression reminds us for our plight. The reality is we are a long way from racial equality. White America was so offended about the two terms of Obama and the attitude of African Americans the arrogance and joy blacks displayed. African Americans know how to exist in the face of extreme race tensions. We have built our African Americans Heritage in the shadows of Jim Crow laws and Governmental oppression. The fight drains our souls and slows personal growth, yet the obligations of racial contribution is now highly visible and on our shoulders. So take pride in our daily grind the burdens like no other race as we continue the acknowledgement for respect. Or is the question we as a whole must seek the acknowledgment and pride in our accomplishments in ourselves. Dedicated to the plight and cause Join us!

Our most pressing issue at the B.A.F. is to inform our audience with positive dignity. To give updated accounts of daily occurrences. To give concise reports of topics that are imperative to the unity of black culture. So, now we will give rapid fire, short of some of the most recent accomplishments of African Americans since 2000. Take a moment to the let pride soak in. Walk in the day with knowledge of your race’s ability to be a force of positive accomplishments.

Please, if any of these race giants move you, do deeper research on them. Educate yourself about yourself!
