  1. I rarely watched her stories or anybody else’s really. Her last tweet had over 32k likes because that dance went viral earlier in the summer and that song has been played all over Africa this summer. It’s a very popular song. It’d be awesome if she actually did the dance to draw more attention to it.
  2. I honestly love this video but she’s got to have more engaging captions and promote herself. I admittedly don’t pay too much attention to her Sunday motivation messages, because... she can do better.
  3. I honestly haven’t seen the footage. I just heard about it because I don’t have the heart to see it. It’s just like with Elijah McClain. I only read about his last words and it was enough to seriously upset me. I just need a break from having that imagery in my head. And yeah, Chadwick’s passing moved me. I really appreciate what he did to leave an imprint in such a short period of time.
  4. I don’t blame you. In some ways it’s a coping mechanism.
  5. After Jacob Blake, I finally decided to take a day off work. It was nice. I got to do yoga and meditate.
  6. WTF?! This is a throwback.
  7. Lipstick Alley. Granted the creator of the thread did give credit to this forum.
  8. This thread is being mentioned on another forum... interesting.
  9. I think it’s an old picture. Regardless, it’s good to see her.
  10. Cute! I can see Aimetoons did the drawing. I love her work.
  11. 365 Days F for plot but that’s not why I watched it
  12. I’m so glad you kept your sense of humor lmaooo. I did get tested because I felt a sore throat but luckily I didn’t have anything. However I no longer travel to keep myself safe. I may see family if I start to see the curve flattening but I’ve been living very natural. I had a colleague almost lose a spouse and he’s still recovering so it’s very sobering to hear stories.
  13. She looks so much like Mama K-Jacks here. I love the braids.
  14. I’m not going to lie. I tested up reading your post. I’m sooo grateful that you’re still here with us. How are you feeling? I know of a people that have had a long road to recovery. And you’re right: this is not to play with. I haven’t seen my family yet because of the spike in cases and I’d hate to either get it or get my parents sick.
  15. OMG! I’m so glad to hear that you’re recovering. When did you start feeling off?
  16. She wouldn’t be the first artist to do this. I’m 100% sure Beyoncé went on tour in 2013 months before she dropped her self-titled album. It’s not new for artists to phase it in while on tour. It could be a myriad of reasons: not having the album finished yet, still working through a promo schedule, etc. Those things could’ve been in work while touring.
  17. Got my cancellation notification today. Totally understand why. I hope she puts out a statement though.
  18. I would agree with this. I’ve limited the amount of news I’ve watched just to guard my own sanity. And then at times I’ve watched shows like The Office or 90 Day Fiance to remind myself to laugh. I may start journaling.
  19. I’ve seen your activity on Facebook and I genuinely appreciate it. We will see how this all plays out with the officers because while I’d like to believe they’d go to jail, I’ve seen this movie too many times. It’s been interesting and fascinating to see more White people advocate and explain racism to other White people. Far too often it has been the plight of the oppressed to talk to the oppressor and that never made sense to me. I think you have to balance your activity with your self-care. For example, Tuesday was a bad day for me in terms of being emotionally spent. So much so I forgot to
  20. Yeah. I think I’m going to take a mental health day soon to just recharge. Yesterday was heavy. I had friends/allies reaching out and we had some very emotional conversations. A lot weighing on me right now but I honestly hadn’t expected this kind of reaction. It just feels different. And that helps.
  21. I’m in Chicago now and it’s a mess over here as well. I live in downtown Chicago and safety has been an issue. Last weekend was wild! There was some looting a couple of blocks from me. It’s a mess but in some weird ways, it’s encouraging.
  22. I pretty much like you, and in that I am a lone wolf. I missed seeing my family but my parents are over 60 and I didn’t want to risk getting on a flight and potentially exposing them. I went outside for my own sanity. I will say that I’m grateful to still have a job and not going out has helped me to save money so I’m appreciative of it. With all of the killings, I was doing a great job of compartmentalizing but Breonna Taylor’s killing was the first major crack in my facade and then George Floyd was the final tipping point. It’s really hard to work when there’s such a huge burden we
  23. I know this forum isn’t as active anymore. But I wanted to check in to see how everyone is doing with what’s going on in the world today.
  24. I’ll admit it: I was pissed when Obama said it. I do think when it came to race relations he had a fine line to walk but he did disappoint me at times when it came to race. It’s why I think there are some chinks in his armor with younger Black Millennials and Gen Z because at times he played it too safe with a group of people that were never going to accept him.

    It is crazy to think about it. This forum and the people that are a part of it mean a lot to me. I’ve been part of the online Janfam community for almost 19 years which is insane. I couldn’t imagine not knowing y’all.
