What’s Poppin In Atlanta? #WildCardWednesdays at Royal South Central

What to do? What to do? Atlanta is certifiably the city of stars! There’s lights, glitter, fame, and parties all throughout the city. There’s a party on every block and a friendly face at every party. Atlanta is known for the night life!   One of the biggest downfalls of partying in Atlanta is that most parties are exactly the same. There’s nothing that sets them apart from one another….

I can laugh about it now. Little chuckles escape me when I think of how bad it could have all been and how the devil is indeed a liar.  And how my grandma didn’t raise a fool.  I wonder just how gullible people think I am at times when I can stare blankly at them in some way, form, or fashion and “see right through them”.  But then again, some…

@realdeal_lock

Edited by: BlaqKharma and ATTICA LUNDY COOPER The 4th Quarter is a special time for the music industry. The elites release music for stamped cult-like fan bases.

Love without Monogamous Restrictions: A poly perspective on polyamory

Edited by Attica Lundy Cooper Most hear the word polyamory and think of a man or woman being allowed to sleep with as many people as they like without restrictions.

The year 2001 was a year, that if you look and listen to Jackson himself, he was nothing but a black man ringing the alarm about racism in…

You know, the song that made him a “one hit wonder”?…. Moment of silence before I go in…. We tend to embrace imagery of murder. We tend to talk about taking life, killing life, and dividing life…. We…
