“Last year, Renisha McBride was fatally shot by Theodore Wafer, as the 19-year-old unarmed, lost and frightened Black women sought help after a car accident in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn Heights, MI. Wafer’s tral for 2nd degree murder and manslaughter is set to begin on Monday, July 21. Now is the time to demonstrate that Renisha has supporters across the country who are counting on Wayne County Prosecutor, Kym Worthy, to deliver justice.”

Fidel receives the President of the People’s Republic of China 

The historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, held a fraternal meeting on Tuesday with President of China Xi Jinping,who is leading a large delegation on an official visit to Cuba. 

The exchange of views was characterized by a climate of friendship, expressive of historical ties between our parties, governments and peoples.

Fidel and Xi Jinping reflected on various issues of international interest, in particular, the huge dangers and challenges facing humanity and the significance of the Declaration adopted on July 15 by the countries of the BRICS group.  

President Xi Jinping presented the gift of a bronze bust in the likeness of the young Fidel.

SIX BLACK SUPERFOODS The darker the food, the more powerful it is in nutrients. 1. Black rice Brown rice is good for you, but black rice is even better. That’s because the bran hull contains significantly higher amounts of vitamin E, which bolsters the immune system and protects cells from free radical damage. In fact, black rice contains more anthocyanin antioxidants than blueberries, according to a study from the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center. 2. Black lentils These legumes are loaded with iron: One cup has about 8 milligrams, getting you almost halfway to the daily requirement of 18 milligrams for women. Lentils also boast high levels of soluble fiber, which may not only lower your cholesterol, but could also improve immune function, according to a new University of Illinois study. 3. Blackberries Polyphenols found in dark berries may help reduce cognitive decline in older age by cleaning up cells that impair brain function, researchers at the Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging in Boston say. Blackberries are also hugely fiber-rich—one cup has almost 8 of the 25 grams you need daily. 4. Black beans The dark skins of these beans are packed with bioflavonoids—potent plant-based nutrients that may protect against cancer, research out of Cornell University reveals. 5. Black soybeans Move over, edamame. A Korean study found that eating black soybeans can help reduce the risk of thrombosis—a type of blood clot that’s potentially fatal—even more than yellow or green soybeans. And all soybean oil contains alpha-linolenic acid, a type of omega-3 fatty acid that may reduce the risk of heart disease. 6. Black tea Green and white teas get all the health hype, but good old black tea has its perks, too. It contains Theaflavins—antioxidants that a study from Rutgers University in New Jersey suggests may improve recovery from muscle soreness after intense exercise. Drinking black tea may also lower your risk of having a heart attack.

Personally I would pass on the soy…

SIX BLACK SUPERFOODS

The darker the food, the more powerful it is in nutrients.

1. Black rice
Brown rice is good for you, but black rice is even better. That’s because the bran hull contains significantly higher amounts of vitamin E, which bolsters the immune system and protects cells from free radical damage. In fact, black rice contains more anthocyanin antioxidants than blueberries, according to a study from the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center.

2. Black lentils
These legumes are loaded with iron: One cup has about 8 milligrams, getting you almost halfway to the daily requirement of 18 milligrams for women. Lentils also boast high levels of soluble fiber, which may not only lower your cholesterol, but could also improve immune function, according to a new University of Illinois study.

I’m white and I hate my hair. But I will not be denied a job for my hair. I will not have random people wanting to touch my hair. I will not be asked if I have a weave. I will not be kicked out of school for my hair. I may hate my hair, but will not be persecuted because of if. White people do not need the natural hair movement.

MESSAGE.
