I went to get my hair done. It cost me 60 dollars. I got my hair braided in circles. I love thie style. Its new and different.
Ofcourse Some white people are quick to dismiss the black man’s talents.
Now if you know black history, you know us black people do it and we
do it better. We do it big. We are the meal, the snack, and the cake with
icing and sprinkles and a nice drink to go with it. We just outdo ourselves.
More black people should help other black people. It’s really a competition
with white people and black people. It’s not black people and black people.
That’s just how it’s set up.
Moving onto the story. The little people thought that African American
engineers were not skilled and industrious as White people. This is so not true. It was an
experiment done with white men and black men to work on the same
project. They did not want African Americans to work in cold climates.
Black men and white men worked on the same highway. Yet,
it was still segregated. The African American engineers were not
allowed to have bulldozers and other machinery. The 95th Engineer
Regiment, who was the final African American unit transferred to
the highway, had more experience operating equipment. Yet,
the all white people of the 35 regiment was given the machinery.
African Americans were given hand tools. You see how backwards
some people are? But the brilliant and bold African Americans
are so magnificent they can get something done with pure labor.
On October 25, 1953, an African American soldier and
a white bulldozer driving soldier shook hands. This was the
final link of the Alaska Highway! They were photographed
as equals coming together to beat the Axis Powers.
It was now 1942, when the highway was completed.
The engineers who had labored so hard and were transferred to
other arenas in the war, including the South Pacific
and Europe. There, thirty men died during the construction
of the highway. Memorials for the veterans are spread
throughout the highway, including the Black Veterans
Memorial Bridge, which came into effect in 1993.
Thus, it was truly hard work to work on this project.
This is just one instance of black people and white people
Infatuated with those curls? Obssessed with curls? Looking at the lady in the
magazine wondering how can I get those curls? Ask a beautician and then you
tell me. I want to know, too! I’m not a hairstylist. I’ve done women’s hair before
but my work is so basic. I know I can’t work with hard to style hair. I wish I could. I wonder
if I should become a beautician. That will take away a lot of my hair problems.
I would just be chilling, relaxing all care free. But I myself would make sure my
hair is done. Anyways, I want to give tribute to a black woman who changed
the hair game for the better. Her name is Marjorie Joyner.
She was introduced to Madame C J Walker, a black hair care products
entrepreneur. Walker owned about 200 hair salons. She died in 1919 and
Marjorie headed the Madam CJ. Walker Beauty Colleges. In the 1920s, black
women had serious issues with their hair. If they wanted to straighten
their tightly curled hair, they would have to use a stove heated
curling iron. Then, Marjorie comes along and speeds up the process
and also makes it easier as well as more efficient.
Her vision was of serveral curling irons above a woman’s head
that would work in unison to straighten her hair all at once. Joyer abruptly
had this idea In her head. Joyner said “It all came to me in the kitchen
when I was making a pot roast one day, looking at these long thing rods that
hld the pot roast together and heated from the inside. I figured you could
use them like hair rollers, then heat them up to cook a permanent
curl into the hair.”
Therefore, she straightened and curled in a very easy manner.
She approached this solution by putting 16 rods adjacent to each other.
They were connected to the electric cord inside of a drying hood. A customer
would wear the hood for a certain amount of time. Thus, the hair was either
straightened or curled. She started working on her invention in
1926 and after two years of trial and error, it was all finished. In
1928, she got a patent for her device named the Permanent
Waving Machine. This device was bestselling and auspicious (successful).
The curl stayed in the hair for days. On the other hand, a curl from as
single iron would last only a day.
THerefore, she was a success just like her inventions. We all want
that hairstyle that’s on point to match our nice outfit. We never
want to walk around with half the look. Even on a casual day,
when we wear our hair nice, we look nice! Hair is the first thing
Instead of taking a bike or a car,this man decided to run
and he ran this race and took over!!!
A black man is the fastest man on earth. In the words of Alicia Keys
song Unbreakable,” Clap your hands everybody, um, clap your hands..
Well black people are known for doing the best in everything. This internet
could never be thorough enough to explain it…Charisma, talent, beauty,
soul, spirit, giving,intelligence, inventions, black people are the best
in all areas no matter how good others are in areas. They say everybody
has talent but black people take it to the extreme.
Jamaica’s Usain Bolt is the speediest man in the world. He has
won the men’s Olympic 100 meters with such power. He went
even further than his former record of 9.72 seconds. He finished
the race in only 9.69 seconds, which is a new world record
he has set. Some Trinidadian gentleman named Richard Thompson
got 2nd place and won silver medal. He finished the race in 9.89 seconds.
American Walter Dix went home with bronze medal for 9.91 seconds.
This gentleman from Jamaica is quoted as saying” I came here to prove
I’m the best. I could even be 9.60.” His name and his high level
of achieving in running has deemed him worthy of the media nickname
“Lightning Bolt”. And in the words of Muhammad Ali, Fly like a butterfly,
sting like a bee. We know how that applies to this man’s speedy race.
Puma is the sponsor company. After he won the 200 meters race in
World Junior Championships in Jamaica in 2002, Puma signed Bolt.
To advertise Bolt’s chances for 100 meters race in Summer Olympics
in Beijing, China, Puma has released a collection of videos showing
off Bolt’s world record setting run in the Reebok Grand Prix to his
preparations for the Olympics. Even during the Beijing 2008 100
meters final, Bolt display his golden Puma spikes that read
Beijing 100 meters Gold.
Oh yes people, I probably should have kept running. I did run a lot
when I was a kid. I never got into racing, but when I was a kid
mom said I was the fastest runner on my block. And doesn’t
running give people a rush? It’s great excercise, pumps
that heart, challenges you. What more could you want?
- The Importance of each city in Black History
Well, we all know that each city in America ended slavery in different years.Every city had a special role and was peculiar. What did our black people go through during this time era? What are the statistics?
In 1910, about 50 years after the Civil War, 89% of all black people resided
in the South. 80% of these are in rural areas. By 1913, a collection of
tragedies destroyed the cotton crop. World cotton prices went down
like cold weather temperatures. Boll weevils infested large areas and
in 1915 brutal floods took over the Mississippi Valley.
Farmers Lost Everything they had.
While under Jim Crow laws, many African American sharecroppers and
tenant farmers dove deeply into debt or lost what they had. Simultaneously,
World War I had slowed down foreign immigration to the northern cities
while the demand grew for industrial goods. Therefore, producing
a severe labor shortage in both northern and western cities.
Mass Migration went North
The Great Migration was a major event that involved black people move
in search of urban jobs. During the periods of 1915-1920, a million
black people moved to northern cities. Another million joined them
in the decade that came later. In addition to that, tens of thousands
of blacks went west, specifically California, while 700,000 black
people moved down south.
The Great Migration slowed during the Depression, with one fourth
of all blacks lived in North or West during the year 1940. The pattern
continued during and after World War II. By the year 1960, 40% of
all blacks lived outside the South, and 75% of all blacks lived
in cities. More black people transformed their rural southern
backgrounds to fit their new urban homes and that in turn created
a new black culture.
Atlanta’s Role in Black History
African AMericans did not heavily flow into Atlanta until after the
Civil War. In the late 1800s, nearly half of Atlanta’s residents
were black. The City, however stayed racially polarized. In 1915,
Atlanta became the area for the KKK. By the 1960s, Dr Martin
Luther King Jr, showed as the leader of the civil rights movement
making the city even more prominent. The Martin Luther King jr
National Historic Site, is the King Center for Social Justice,
and the Ebenezer Baptist Church.
Birmingham’s Role in Black History
IN 1963, Birmingham became an horrific chapter in civil
rights movement when four young black girls attended Sunday
school and got killed by a bomb. It exploded at the 16th street
Baptist Church. There, Martin Luther King was arrested and jailed
during the anti-segregation protests and that’s where he wrote
his famous Letter from Birmingham CIty Jail, talking about
people having the right to disobey unjust laws. The horrible
images of Bull Connor’s police dogs attacking black marchers
helped alert people to southern racism.
Boston’s Role in Black History
In Boston, they had the abolitionist movement by 1700 and it was
an important slave port in the 1600s. THe Commonwealth of Massachusetts
ended slavery in the year 1783 and in the 1830s era Boston had
become the center of American abolitionist sentiment. The 54th,
Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteer Infantr, a black unit from
Boston, fought in the Civil War. Yet, the Great Migration
had little affect on Boston, the city has received substantial
immigration from the Carribean in recent decades.
In closing, here’s a little quote: “The past is important because it
produces the present.
How many styles are there in the world?
How many angles can you form these styles? What do these styles remind you
of. Let’s start off with Saxygurl’s hairstyle.
Saxygurl is the hippest, most creative and
beautiful woman. She has the longest hair.
I wish my hair was her length. I would walk
many miles for hair like that. In the above
video, she is braiding her hair bottom to top.
It’s like the cornrow updo. I really enjoy
this updo. I even do my updos too. I have
the face for them and as you can see from
the video, so does she. Saxygurl does her
cornrowing. Then she pins it
up. It’s like a combination of roses, and one
of the those really gorgeous instruments.
She wears it so well, with the most
elegant and jazzy accessories. She is the
style, beauty, dress icon, and modeling
everything to the T. Much applause to this
beautiful woman. She’s got alot of great
ideas. After all, that’s why I’m subscribed to
her. Like her, I do my own hairstyles. I
admire this about her. Oh, what I could do
with hair that length? I do alot with my
length,but her length is something to ride
home about. It’s definitely an attention
Once you see her hairstyles, the image
will be locked in. I’m such a fan.
I really feel this song. It is like the best remix.
I visualize myself in a video for this. I love this song
so much. It’s catchy, on point, the perfect song.
One time I put this song to the thunderstorm
background when it was all rainy. It takes my
mind to new levels. It’s like a 3dimensional.
It is pure genius.
