Let me explain why this is really important:  Because it takes a lesson every other show teaches you and corrects it.

Most shows will say “Be yourself!  Then girls will love you for you and you will have so many girlfriends!  So many!”

It’s another disappointing message to young boys that teaches them they are entitled to women.  That “hey just be you and you get girls, neat!”

Tino’s mom takes the time to say “No, be yourself because yourself is who you should be.  It won’t necessarily get you girls, some of them still won’t be interested but the most important thing is you like yourself.”

That’s a great message and if he follows through with it, it is likely to make him far more interesting as a romantic partner.

I was too young for this show. Lol

Maiherpri, Buried at Thebes, Valley of the Kings, New Kingdom 18th Dynasty, 1427-1392 BC 
Maiherpri was buried in the sacred burial sites, with other Egyptian kings at Thebes in the Valley of the Kings.
Question: How much longer will the Egyptians (the people of Kemet) be portrayed as White? 

Had to reblog to pass on some knowledge

Looks like Barkhad Abdi

LOOK AT ME. I AM DE PHARAOH NOW

The thing though is that this guy was Nubian, not a native Egyptian.

And, what *exactly* is a native Egyptian? 
Apparently being an Egyptian noble and being buried in the Valley of Kings isn’t enough to be considered Egyptian now. Lol. Ok.
I must have stepped out of line. Excuse me. Go ahead… yes native Egyptians were the first whites in Africa. They must have migrated there across the Mediterranean Sea from Whitesenburg, Europe. Race mattered in ancient history… and Maiherpri must have gotten in the Valley of Kings as apart of an affirmative action program. 

I cannot breathe

A Look at Black Chicago in the 1970s

The Atlantic’s In Focus blog is doing a great photo series on America in the early 1970s. Last week they took a look at documentary photographer John H. White, who went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Photojournalism in 1982. Here’s a quick look at the series, and you can see the whole thing over at The Atlantic.
