Black History month



In 1958 Tracy Morrow broke free from his mother’s womb and gave a giant middle finger to the world. At 26 years old he was the only rapper to be cast in the movie Breakin’ and its sequel Breakin 2: electric bugaloo. From then on it was a parade of hos, crip walking, and money making as Tracy, now known as Ice-T , made a name for all light skinned black men across the land. Thanks to Ice-T the paler negro was no longer seen as less hard, more confused, and lacking the essence of blackness. Ice-T showed not only black America, but all of America that piss colored negroes could be scary as well. For these accomplishments as well as for Leprechaun in the Hood, we name Ice-T one of the heroes of black history month.




P.S: Anyone else beginning to take Black history month about as seriously as Kwanzaa?

You stop, Afrogeek. Black History Month and Kwanzaa happen to be two of my favorite festivals of Blackness, not to be topped, however, by the Missouri Black Expo and New Years Eve!
Plus, everyone knows the light skinned kids always got something to prove.
Happy Valentine's Day. Can we get a Black History Shout Out for The Love Below?

You do realize that Kwanzaa was created out of whole cloth 40 years ago by a violent felon, don't you?

Here's a link that explains it in good detail:
