african gangsters and their hyenas and baboons
fuck wit afrika
Ahhhhh! FUCK U TUMBLR!!!
They are not “gangsters”. These men travel around Nigeria using the animals pictured above in performances. Its a tradition passed down through the generations.
They have had an impact on keeping certain aspects of Nigerian culture active as well as bringing herbal remedies, including those to treat malaria, to the areas they perform in.
This is a supplemental business, used to help their families stay afloat when not farming.

And here’s a video.
yep. This was actually a ‘program’ started by the Fascist/Catholic regime in Spain during Franco’s dictatorship. The idea was to steal babies from ‘left leaning’ parents, poor single mothers and sell them to right wing parents. The Spanish Catholic church has been quiet about this, but there have been dozens of protests and lawsuits. Investigations are still going on. There’s a really interesting documentary on this, I’ll have to find it.
This is another reason why I have zero respect for the Catholic Church in Spain, or Franco sympathizers.
…yeah just. You don’t see a lot of English-speaking people talking about the horror that was the Franco regime. It was unironically one of the darkest chapters of my country’s history. Do not research if you don’t have a strong stomach.
"I don’t really like people, but it’s difficult to get comfortable with loneliness. I mean, I’ve tried to have friends, but it never works out. And I’m tired of going out alone. I’m ok staying in at my place. It smells good when I burn incense and I have a lot of records and I can just play video games.”
The bus she was waiting for arrived. “Do you need to go?”
"It’s ok. Another one will come in ten minutes… But then, you know, sometimes I just want a partner— a relationship. It would be nice to share this part of my life with someone. I’ve been single for years, and you know, there are people I could call if I wanted to. But people always end up saying things that rub me the wrong way, or if I open up to them, suddenly they want me to be their best friend, and I don’t want people to have expectations of me. I don’t want to waste anyone else’s time if I’m not interested in being close to them."
Another bus came and went while she told me about the loneliness, wiping tears from her eyes. Then another. “I’m sorry, I’ve talked too long.”
"It’s really ok. Sometimes we just need to connect."
"Yeah, I forget that sometimes."
I feels her.
i feel this
i really really do
Man…. I feel this so fucking much.

A source close to Kelly further told us that there’s been discord in the singer’s inner circle lately, and further secrets about him are “starting to float to the surface about the millions he paid out over the years to a wide variety of women.”
Kelly was acquitted on the child porn charges. But veteran music writer and Kelly chronicler Jim DeRogatis said last year that there have been “dozens of girls — not one, not two, dozens — with harrowing lawsuits
He has been a despicable predator and the black community did not and still does not come for him like it should. Not at all. How do you put on songs you know he wrote about teenagers and still two step?
This is old news. Before Aaliyah, R. Kelley had a rep for hanging around the middle schools and high schools in Chicago.
He’s been a predator since day one and the lack of action against him is one of the most ain’t shit aspects of the black community I have ever been unfortunate enough to witness.

I’d just like to give honor to this young lady for changing the game. You need to recognize that she inspired Elmo to perform this song and dance. ELMO! Elmo is like elementary school student’s Beyoncé!
Why do they give you a biography on black folk acting nutty on the evening news, but I don’t know this little girl’s name? Everybody knows this Vine, recreates this Vine, and/or mixes it into a trap beat. Someone needs to give this girl a trophy. Pay for her dance classes. Give her tickets to The Carter tour! KNOW HER! SHE IS LEGENDARY!
