mistaperales With 2/3 finals complete, I'm exhausted. Many of you know how tough it is to muster the energy for the last one. Last week I ordered a book I had been putting off since it's publication(2012), mostly because I don't have time to read much of anything other than textbooks. Today I received this book and my energy levels have been replenished. It is an absolute honor to be in the acknowledgements of Professor Antonio 'Tony' Lopez's book. Some of you have sat in his English class(es) at GWU and experienced his enthusiasm and how well he can relate to us millennials. He's loud, extremely well-read, and will take your initial thoughts about a reading and turn them upside down leaving you thinking about his words for the remainder of the day. I'm happy to say he and I still keep in touch and I cannot wait to read his book titled Unbecoming Blackness: The Diaspora Cultures of Afro-Cuban America. Congratulations, Tony. #GWU #latino #cuba #diaspora #afrolatino
PS - this book and the rich history of Afro-Latinos is open to everybody, you don't have to be a minority to understand and evaluate society's shortcomings regarding racial tensions.

Food for thought... We can do so much more together than as separate entities. Our greatest downfall as a people is our strength/weakness of being emotionally/spirituality subjected to certain situations... With that being said. Nothing is worse then for our people to continually reenact the 'crab in a bucket' scenario. Its only a matter of time before we have to take a look in the mirror and really ask ourselves if we really are making a positive difference amongst our people. We have to ask ourselves if we have the guts to put our egos aside to seek the positive progressive movement of our fellow brothers and sisters.
In regards to the recent situation involving @black_world_order many people took a negative view of his decision to not integrate to contributions of other groups of people into the BUILDING stage of his project. In any other stage of black economics it is logical to involve other groups of people in black economics...(i.e. consuming/customer) But as far as building the original foundation of black economics; it is imperative that it be amongst blacks and blacks only. After the solidity of the foundation is set then doors can open to others to help grow the black foundation. Otherwise, you leave yourself and the foundation open to exploitation, espionage, and miscommunication of the foundational vision; which would be related to the perspective culture of the people in that foundation.
