He was an inspiration to generations of young people. Rest in paradise, Sir Royston O. Hopkin. May your family endure. RIP.

The History of Violence & Ethnological Discrimination in Europe

08/14/2022 No Comments

I said this in one of my recent blogs talking about transforming victimhood to heroism. Ever since I moved to Europe, I’ve spent a lot of time visiting museums, historical landmarks, and taking in their history. When you step back and look at it, Caucasian history is overflowing with thousands of years of ethological based ferocity and violence.

DJ Mike Stoan: Hmmmmm why not join all of them then? Freddy Will: Tracing your ancestry to Africa is the easy part bro. Once you get in Africa, the lineage goes even further back. My entire family consists of Loko, Mende, Fula, Temne, and Mandingo tribes. Due to intermigration, intermarriage, tribal wars, and adoption, the […]

African Identity Stripped from Black Folk – A Facebook Discussion with DJ Mike Stoan II

08/14/2022 No Comments

Our dialogue proceeded as I made my best effort to reassure every black person reading the post. It doesn’t matter if you are Afro-European, Afro-Asian, African American, Caribbean or wherever your parents had you. If you return to Africa, your people will receive you warmly, and reintegrate you into African society. Some may worry about […]

African Identity Stripped from Black Folk – A Facebook Discussion with DJ Mike Stoan

08/14/2022 No Comments

This conversation began when DJ Mike Stoan posted a meme on his wall. The meme read: “Black people were stripped of our identity when we were brought here, and it’s been a quest since then to define who we are.” – Spike Lee. Fascinated (as I always am with many of DJ Mike Stoan’s posts) […]

What is African? And What is Considered Africa?

08/14/2022 No Comments

I will define Africa as the land of many kingdoms. I believe this is one of the leading components of our motherland. What makes it even more uncommon is the evidence. Every region of the continent holds people from different ethnic groups. For example, there are 500 different tribes in Nigeria alone. Each one possesses […]

A Discussion about What it’s Like to be Black in Canada

08/14/2022 No Comments

In my opinion, racism is a lot subtle in Canada. But once you look past the subtlety, you begin to see that it’s right in your face. Keep in mind that in Canada, a lot of white people are first, second or third generation European. If you didn’t know you should become aware that not […]

A Discussion about What it’s Like to be Black in Germany

08/14/2022 No Comments

African people are expressing similar concerns in Europe as they are in other parts of the world. Showing that racism is systemic on a global basis. It’s not just a few white people who are ignorant of blacks and immigrants. It’s a systemic fabrication that a Caucasian-dominated society has deeply entrenched in the culture of […]

In 3000 BC, Egyptians believed in a mystical character. His named was Horus. They thought a virgin named Mary gave birth to him on December 25.

The Black Man

08/14/2022 No Comments

Racists do not realize how ignorant they are. They victimize others by keeping annals against the victim’s situation. Racists have no remorse for the horrendous crimes their race has committed against the Aborigines, Africans, Arabs, Asians or the Indian people. And they cling to the idea that those whom they berate are deserving of it. […]

Grenada (The Introduction)

08/14/2022 No Comments

I have a lot to learn about the origin of this great civilization. Therefore I may not be the most prudent narrator of the account of an island in the Caribbean.  I will approach this as a student of this culture. I am someone who marvels at the customs of the Aboriginal peoples. That has […]

Emancipation & Repatriation

08/14/2022 No Comments

For the most part, the United States, Great Britain, and France enslaved West Africans. Religious groups and abolitionists launched demonstrations charging that slavery is a crime against humanity. That tumultuous moment in history ended after the global effort for some Blacks to return to Africa. Despite that, many Whites still supported slavery. Many who benefited […]

A Tribute to the Artist Known as Prince

In the last decade, we’ve lost enough icons | from the United States | to where it’s not as shocking when the news breaks. James Brown, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Natalie Cole, Bobbi Kristina Brown, B. B. King, Robin Williams, Prince, Abe Vigoda, Phife Dawg, Cathriona White…  It used to be that when an icon […]

Black History Month / Bai Bureh

When the British settled in Freetown, it was a piece of land sold to them by the natives of Romarong. However, after the repatriation of some freed slaves, the British appointed a “crown colony” and soon began to sign treaties and policies that they can assume authority over areas of influence in the hinterlands. The […]
