tarenguy (See link in bio) See why I say "F*ck Society's Standards" in black beauty! There's no reason for us to even speak life into these so called standards anymore! Beauty is PERSONAL, not societal! Watch the replay on #Periscope now @ TarenGuy! 🏽 4d
  •   landyoganyc Caught a chunk. You were preaching! Blessed to have you as a teacher and friend! 4d
  •   950kev @tarenguy - I would love to have you on my Show #950Lounge to discuss this topic. If there's an interest please let me know. 4d
  •   tamerakayshell Loved the periscope! I hate how every hood has an Asian running a beauty supply store and an Arab running every corner store in America and we can't benefit from that money. I understand that they have to feed their families too but its time we bring our money back into our community! 4d
  •   stephanievilliers Your scopes are always so thought provoking. Excited about your new channel. 4d

tarenguy There's beauty & struggle in this. Keep spreading your beautiful "poems" yet misunderstood messages to the world! They'll stick eventually... -- Personally I've been on a recent journey of semi silence and recalibration to a large degree (from my social platforms) for this reason. I'm still digesting all of what's been downloaded this past year. New lessons, great lessons, heavy lessons, simple lessons, and some exposure to what's been hidden in plain sight. The next level which is the expression of what's been digested, will come when it's ready. Always speak your poetic truth... Even to a world that may never understand. #OldSoul (Pic #rp @m_eye_nd) 6d

tarenguy I feel the awakening in the air and loving every minute of it. In due time, but we are moving in the right direction. -- Side Note: shout out to #SpikeLee for speaking up on his behalf on live television! They will not speak to us any kind of way without logical response and refute! 6d

tarenguy Amazing filmmakers here!! I had the pleasure of attending the premiere of #TheFilmBlackFriday (@thefilmblackfriday) it was MIND BLOWING!! It tells the story of how we as Black Americans spend our money. I was blown away by the statistics and at how integration took part in feeding us the mentality of consumerism. -- So deep! EVERY black household should buy this DVD!! Please support! 7d
  •   cozy_croshea That is my good friend husband's movie "Hey Brad" "Hey Kia". Thanks for supporting!! 7d

Interesting read
・・・
A psychologist puts 5 monkeys in a large cage. High up at the top of the cage, well beyond the reach of the monkeys, is a bunch of bananas. Underneath the bananas is a ladder.

The monkeys immediately spot the bananas and one begins to climb the ladder. As he does, however, the experimenter sprays him with a stream of cold water. Then, he proceeds to spray each of the other monkeys.

The monkey on the ladder scrambles off. And all 5 sit for a time on the floor, wet, cold, and bewildered. Soon, though, the temptation of the bananas is too great, and another monkey begins to climb the ladder. Again, the experimenter sprays the ambitious monkey with cold water and all the other monkeys as well. When a third monkey tries to climb the ladder, the other monkeys, wanting to avoid the cold spray, pull him off the ladder and beat him.

Now one monkey is removed and a new monkey is introduced to the cage. Spotting the bananas, he naively begins to climb the ladder. The other monkeys pull him off and beat him.

Here’s where it gets interesting. The experimenter removes a second one of the original monkeys from the cage and replaces him with a new monkey. Again, the new monkey begins to climb the ladder and, again, the other monkeys pull him off and beat him – including the monkey who had never been sprayed.

By the end of the experiment, none of the original monkeys were left and yet, despite none of them ever experiencing the cold, wet, spray, they had all learned never to try and go for the bananas.

I bet that if we could ask the monkeys why they beat up the one that climbs the ladder, they'd answer "I don't know, that's just how things have always been around here"

Bottom line; Question everything! Customs, beliefs, morals, etc. THINK !
