What Can We Do?

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on June 3, 2020 at 3:38 pm

Earlier this evening about 17 minutes after 5 —
President O made BREAKING NEWS and he did it “live.”

Did you see it? Did you see it? Big Leo speaks truth
when he says the future will very well be delivered by our youth.

It always has.
Rev. MLK started marching as a lad…

President Obama reminded us of that.
Via our youth, we can get our mojo back.

The children demand that we “reimagine the police.”
He also encouraged our finest (career servants of peace)

to continue to engage with civilians that consist in every hood.
Because when we all work together we produce the most good.

President O still believes in us as we still believe in change.
Change takes place through voting; here’s his bullet point lane:

WHAT CAN WE DO?

headscratcher

We can figure this out.
Baby Scratching GIF from Baby GIFs

#1. We know there are specific evidence based reforms that if we put in place today would belter us up and save lives, would not show any increase in crime – those are included in the 21st Century Policing Task Force Report. You can find it on Obama.org.

#2. A lot of mayors and local officials read and support the task force report and then there wasn’t enough follow through. Today I am urging every mayor in this country to review your use of FORCE POLICIES with members of your community and commit to report on planned reforms. What are the specific steps that you can take? I should add, by the way, that the original task force report was done several ago – since that time we’ve actually collected data in part because we implemented some of these reform ideas. We now have more information and more data as to what works. And there are organizations like Campaign Zero and Color of Change and others that are out there highlighting what the data shows, what works and what doesn’t in terms of reducing incidents of police misconduct and violence. Let’s go ahead and start implementing those. So we need mayors, county executives, others who are in positions of power to say this is a prior – this is a specific response.

#3. Every city in this country should be a MY BROTHERS KEEPER commune. Because we have 250 cities and tribal nations who are working to reduce the barriers and expand opportunity for boys and young men of color with programs, policy reforms and public and private partnerships. So, go to our website and get working with that because it can make a difference.

“And let me just close by saying this — I’ve heard some people say that ‘You have a pandemic then you have these protests, this reminds people of the ’60’s and the chaos and the discord and distrust throughout the country… I have to tell you though I was very young, you had the discord and assassinations back in the ’60’s. I know enough about that history to say there is something different here.

You look at those protests — that was a far more representative cross section of America out on the streets peacefully protesting and who felt moved to do something because of the injustices that they had seen. That didn’t exist back in the 1960’s. That kind of broad coalition.

The fact that recent surveys have shown that despite some protest having then been marred by the actions of some; a tiny minority that engaged in violence; that despite (as usual) it [violence] got a lot of attention and a lot of focus — the majority of Americans still think that the protest was justified. That wouldn’t have existed 30-40 years ago.

There is a change in mindset that is taking place; a greater recognition that we can do better. That is not as a consequence of speeches by politicians, it’s the not the result of spotlights in news articles — this is a direct result of the activities & organizing and mobilization & and engagement of so many young people across the country who put themselves out on the line to make a difference.

So, I just have to say THANK YOU to them for helping to bring about this moment and just make sure that we now follow through. Because at some point, you know, attention moves away; at some point protests start to dwindle in size. It’s important for us to take the momentum that has been created as a society, as a country and say Let’s use this to finally have an impact. Alright?

Thank you ever body. I’m proud of you guys.  I know that we’re going to be hearing from a bunch of people who have been on the front lines of this who know a lot more than I do about it. ‘Proud of you. ”  – President Obama

Leadership

leadership

What does leadership have to do with entertainment? The name of this site is Qui Entertainment Magazine, so then why are we always creating content that plays off of, parallels,  and reflects world views? Because multimedia producers are leaders. My line of work is global and requires me to create relative content responsibly. Research and think tanks are my jam.

Leadership is needed on every level. We need it in sports, we need it in combat, we need it in the E.R., we need it in church or else that one sister will sing all of the praise & worship songs during her testimony. Leaders set boundaries that support purpose. Stating that each testimonial is yielded to 3-minutes will keep most folk from going into the second verse on that hymn that describes their sentiment perfectly and will leave enough time in the service for others to express themselves as well. Leadership is needed, or we’d all be singing a different tune; not acknowledging or even hearing the messages of others that may contain life saving wisdom.
  Can I get an Amen?

Leaders are visible, like Governor Cuomo in New York.
Divvying life saving information is a patriot’s sport.

There are so many other leaders, I am sure, who are stepping up to the plate
to prove that they have the capacity to think, discern and contemplate.

It’s called governing and leaders are stepping up.
That’s great because virus cases are revving up.

We got this. Schumer is on the House floor right now talking sums
that equate to employers paying employees to stay home for 4 months.

We can do this. We can hit this head on and come out stronger.
We should act now – not in 12-more days; no need to be a prolonger.

Let’s first lead at home. Lead the family to wash their hands.
Then stay inside of your homes and admire your manicured land.

If your land is un-manicured, you don’t have to worry about being bored.weed-pulling
During your time at home, you and the fam can do team building with chores.

Make necessary work fun again.
Post weed-pulling pics on social media for friends.

Why not?
The weather is fair and not too hot.

Okay, maybe weed-pulling isn’t “a thing,”
especially if you’re in more of a city scene.

Leaders in your hood
are best equipped to tell you what’s good.

As for me and my household, we are full of hope.
Are we going to the mall and eating out as usual? Nope.

We have calibrated our to and fro
follow-the-leader_ducksto give the world time to figure things out, yo.

We are doing our best to be educated heed’ers.
We are doing our best to be in-home leaders.

Leadership should begin at home.
Line the fam up and get in a zone.

Together we can fight this.
Leadership is necessary but doesn’t feel like bliss.

That’s okay. Via united leadership we will all come out strong,
I’m Qui
Good morning to the leader in thee; prepare your fam to survive long.

Way To Go with The Vote

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on March 11, 2020 at 5:53 am

I hear you America, your vocals are strong.
Do what feels right because you understand what’s wrong.

Yesterday’s primary turn-out had it going on. I’m proud of you.
Michigan rose to the occasion to do what they needed to do,
and came through.

I slept like a baby and dreamed quite vivid.
Good energy is up while the low energy is livid.

Unity requires a standard of respect and respect has been at lack.
Rise this morning, smile in the mirror and get your unity back.

libra.jpgAmerica is a Libra today; the balance of her positive scale looks not so low.
The world is at a better starting-point today, because of the American vote.

Atta’ boy! Enjoy the self-pat on you head
and jam the headline video of what UMI SAID.

As for that nasty-boy Covid19
the blood of Jesus can cover you from that scene.

Divine favor from your maker is real.
Someone that you know tested positive? They can heal.

Atoms and energy composes us all.
Angels are protecting you; illnesses fall.

When life presents us with a situation that has swollen out of our control
God steps in with biological winds that avert ill-will from His children’s souls.

I’m a girl of Science. I think Science is tops.
I’m a supernatural girl; I believe in God.

I’m a storyteller; you know me,
I’ll always champion the good of WE.

Last night the world saw our intentions; may the markets honestly rise,
I’m Qui
Good morning sweetheart, there’s divine help beyond the skies.

NEWS PURUSE – Chatting It Up

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on February 19, 2020 at 4:30 am

NEWS PERUSE_GossipNow that I’m watching the race a little closer – I turned the television back on
to see Mike Bloomberg on ‘The Bloom’ and his campaign growing strong.

I’m a forgiving lady, still I wanted to know more
about Mr.Bloomberg, his word, and his Mayoral score.

So I called up my cousins ex sister-in-law in Brooklyn, to ask her to divvy
me the goods on when Bloomberg governed over New York City.

Y’all, it wasn’t pretty and only  because I really do care
I promised her I’d Griot the info and drop it here, to share.

She said quite a bit and I wasn’t recording the call,
but thanks to ROLLING STONE Mag, this piece says it all:

Bloomberg-and-Black-Folk
https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/political-commentary/mike-bloomberg-audio-recordings-stop-frisk-trump-951302/

It was eye-opening among other things.
He, too, prefers to govern like a king:

The New Yorker remarked that when Bloomberg was Mayor she pushed through jeers;
the weight of not getting a raise from her city employed-gig for about 8-years.

Uh-uhn. I don’t think I’m ready to swallow. I am not interested in another play date.
I do not want to babysit another rich guy in the White House; I’m looking forward to the debates.

The ladies and I are hooking up this eve. We will be watching.
We’re keeping score cards on who and what’s clocking.

There are several campaigns that we are watching; we’re not interested in lies.
We know Bloomberg is a target-market genius – we’ll look past his eyes.

We’ll be checking out Elizabeth Warren, Bernie and Amy Klobachar, too.
We are black and have love for Biden. It’s the patriotic thing to do.

go-vote.gifWe absolutely love this country.
To congregate over anything but – is to be funky.

And this ain’t a time to be funky.
The DNC needs funding but all money ain’t good money, honey.

Not if it costs you: your peace.
I’m just chatting-it-up with you for a little community release.

Is that okay?
I think communing with you is a great way
to start my day.

What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear your say.
Especially after tonight’s debate.

Life is a ballgame – are we ready to play?
The world is in sitting in the bleachers to hear your convey.

Let us show up and create a good story to tell,
I’m Qui
Chatting in my community about which candidate sells.

Tonight, be informed.
Tonight comprehend well.

Voting Matters in NEVADA

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on February 16, 2020 at 4:53 am

yellow-brick-road_daisy-animated-gif-.gifNevada, Nevada we see your intent.
You guys hit early voting, like stellar tenants paying rent.

Thank you for choosing to civilly vent through diligence.
People are waking early to stand in line and change events.

Last night we heard a rumored mention
stating BLOOMBERG may be looking at CLINTON

and the world got a shade brighter.
It energized my solarplexus; I’m a writer.

Could Bloomberg jump to the front as an exciter?
Clinton is no shabby choice; she’s a fighter.

I say “today is a wiser day… go for it.”
The contest is rough but Bloom-Hill can score it!

The ladies and I were cocktail’ing when we heard the news.
Cell phones lit up because Bloomberg is a numbers dude

and we wanted to weigh-in with our views.
So, weigh-in we did. We like the risk hue.

Nevada, Nevada: this weekend is about you.
Thank you for your insistence in following through.

This could be the beginning – of turmoil ending.

The world is watching you. beating-heart
May the Sabbath usher in new truths

about who we are as a people.

Attuned

attuned-optical-illusion.gif

One thing that I am not into is fear.
God is real and I hold His word dear.

So, while the impeachment show dominated all screens –
I kept my mind focused on the one true King.

I did. I really did.
And the view of satellite news hit the bin.

Shame so deep; senators whose faces should be hid.
I will study them not. “A better life,” is my bid.

Honey child/beloved kid: please don’t get caught up
in between the clutches of folks kissing other folks butt’s.

No balls and all nuts. I have been keeping tabs
on the game of “hockey with our democracy” and the constitutional jabs.

Republicans, dear Republicans what do you stand to win
by supporting ‘no support for yourself’ and an admin that isn’t your friend?

Most of its roster ends up behind bars.
That type of cameo paints no one a star.
Oh no, child. Not by far.

Take a deep breath and think about your life.
Are you refreshed or stressed when you open your eyes

in the morning? To be alive is a blessing
please don’t spend it “status-quo” stressing.

Time is non-refundable and no one knows when they will die.
One thing I don’t do is wait; I stay in search of my best life.

I think about you and I and I’m inspired to write.
I turn the television off for more attuned insight.

So how’s it going with you? Are you feeling alright?
I’m finally turning-in
from last nights editing gig –
‘and don’t want the sun to catch my eyes.alice-in-wonderland-curtsey-bow.gif

I just didn’t want to turn-in before checking in with you
and say: “this week of impeach – I’m happy to bid adieu.”

As for our future and what it may hold —
I encourage us all to be vigilant and vote.

I enjoyed-not the senators show
and I am aware that we can change it with our vote.

So let’s do it; keeping this moment in mind.
Utilize your DVR and often rewind.

Reality was unkind. Please give all concerns to God. He rocks.
A man’s expand is limited to land and will always be in a box

if he intends to harm and/or oppress.
I’m always asking you to pray, now I’m asking you to not stress.

This moment is only a test.
Serious about your spirituality? Then be your best.

Energy is real.
Isolate it or become physically ill.

Consider using this weekend to disconnect and unplug,
surround yourself with good people and give them a hug.

When you kneel to pray, ask God to fill-up your cup
with the fruits of the spirit and a double-dose of love.

Don’t forget to request of God in all of His givin’
that He bless you and I with an abundance of wisdom.

You deserve it. I believe that I do, too.
I’m Qui
Have a fantastic weekend and don’t forget that I love you.

Control the narrative of this story by taking daily notes
and paint a clear picture when next you go to the poll.

The Climax is About The CLIMATE

Copulation.

Wanna turn me on? Quit the fuel and ride a bike.
I’m an ecological kind of girl; I’m clear on what I like.

I keep it clean and convey clear, because I want you to see.
I pick up trash anywhere and everywhere around me.

You feel me? Do you like it?
We can go tit-for-tat and get excited.

You wanna do that?
The CLIMATE is in trouble and our temps are Climaxed.

Did you know that we can combat that?
We cannot stop it but we can roll it back.

If we re-instate regulations put in place by President 45
we can work hard to repair Earth and sustain our lives.

Young Greta Thunberg isn’t intimidated by age at all,
she showed up yesterday and let the world feel her gall.

I appreciate her, y’all and I was deeply moved.
The world is in a funk – it’s time to change our groove.

Stella Got Her Groove Back and now Earth want’s hers.
We have had our conveniences too long; it’s time they hit the curb.
Ya heard?
To ‘be fruitful and multiply‘ is still #Word.

Trying to be fruitful and multiply is not being effectively spent,
because Gen’s X, Y, and Z are having trouble paying the rent.

Speaking of Generations, who’s the genius that labeled today’s children: Generation Z?
You thought you were clever, you’re going to hate the next scene:

You get old and fate is mean…
Plant a tree and pray that our land remains green.
The youth are awake, wiser and keen.
You’re not really a luster if you have no sheen;
not much at all without a Middle Class steam.

MAW Has Vision

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on September 16, 2019 at 4:45 am

Lois-Lane-Xray-Vision.jpgI am sure that I am not the only one who knows that Mother Nature and your Mother have superior vision over a host of mysteries that plague a young mind. As long as you live on Earth you will be an adolescent to Mother Nature; not ever an elder. Global Warming has been a thorn in her atmosphere for a very long time and her immune system is fighting back.

Earth will heat up to whatever degree it needs to eradicate her issue. I think our fuel convenience and animal farming is a large part of her issue. I enjoy a chicken sandwich and a hamburger as much as the next American, but to what enth of a degree?

Did your mother ever say to you, “Don’t cut off your nose to spite your own face?” Could you imagine doing such a thing? It sounds silly.

Q: Who would cut off their nose, as if they do not need it on their face? It’s ridiculous. Worst than that, who poison’s the world’s oxygen knowing full well that they, themselves need oxygen to breathe and stay alive?

A:  Humans.

When I was an adolescent and my mother was away from the house and things would go awry between my siblings and me, if I was victimized I’d be the first to say, “I’m telling Mom!”  Mom is a term of respectful endearment but is synonymous with Mama, Mommy, Ma’dear, and even MAW. She gives birth; life. She is for her children’s future – even when their vision is short or tunneled.

Earth is being victimized and I think we need to listen to MAW: Marianne Williamson before we unknowingly burn down our home. Respect Mother Earth and vote to live in a world that offers fresh air to breathe and clean water to drink and respect for every human — because YOU DESERVE IT. The love that a mother has for her children is often misunderstood, but in most cases, she without thought would give her life to save yours. I am only asking for your vote. I am a mother, I love you, and I just want you to live.

comic-book-divider1

What will it take to get you to see
that a maternal love may be the key?

Why not?
Afraid that she’ll wipe our snot?

Do you really prefer a nose full of boogers?
Crystalized mucus is not the same as sugar.

Daddy didn’t tell you because he didn’t know.
Mom grabs a tissue, your nostrils and to town she goes.

It doesn’t feel good, but you look and breathe much better.
Mind you much if she takes a go at healing the weather?

We may not like what she will prescribe…
She will apply the RX to sustain our lives.

Look alive and stay alert. I need you on this.
You may be over 35, but what about the rest of the kids?

Don’t let ill-intentions be hidden, as if we can control burning only half of the house down.
Thinking like that is as archaic as dinosaurs; dinosaurs are no longer around.

If you feel me give me a pound and check out MAW today.
You don’t have to be for #GirlPower to want to live another day.

Just be: For Life.

When I read about the fires in California and the Amazon’s all over the world,
It became quite obvious to me that we may need to listen to a girl…

Her name is EARTH.

Are you listening? Because she’s talking to us all,
I’m Qui
a part of Earth’s “WE” and I truly believe it’s time to listen to MAW.

Have you the gall?

ALTERED CARBON

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Politics, Science, Self Improvement on August 24, 2019 at 6:51 am

Let’s talk about NETFLIX and all of their streaming…
let’s talk about ALTERED CARBON and it’s layered meanings…

I can’t begin to tackle the narrative series with certain clarity
because I just found it’s broadcast and the concept is “altering.”

The linguistics that encompass this show reflect a united world.
I like it – I won’t lie; I’m a linguistic and futuristic girl.

The protagonist in this piece
is an Asian guy wearing a white sleeve.

Looking like Rick Flag from SUICIDE SQUAD
with Jackie Chan’s moves and BLADE’s old bod.

Yes, Joel Kinnaman plays the series protagonist
who’s been re-bodied and remains on a shortlist

of ENVOY walkers.
Their bodies are weapons – they’re not big talkers.

Hand-to-hand combat scenes that look like video games
and the constant flashes of life before and after – are insane.

Have you seen such a thing?
The concept of avoiding death by dawning a new sleeve?

The body gets old, it can be injured and die,
but future technology is looking to re-home your essence of life.

Kind of like the concept of THE SIXTH DAY,
Joel is like Arnold Schwarzeneggar, in a way –

as in he has been re-bodied
and prefers a brew over yesterdays sake.

The writers have got me; I’m watching Season 1 in a binge.
I’m also concerned about mother Earth and her surface singe.

Fossil fuel is yesterdays rule and must come to an end.
Unless we want to be like the dinosaurs and cause Earth to start over again

without us inhabiting her land. For that would be a problem.
Earth is being mistreated by human issues. We can solve them.

At current, there is a 3-week old fire burning in the AMAZON
set by human beings — so it won’t bring the Apocalypse on,

but it will release MORE CARBON emissions into the air – a fatal falter.
Our air quality on Earth will degrade; our lives forever ALTERED.

But we’re not quite like the Netflix show.
We only have this life and this one body sleeve, yo.

What are we doing?
Earth is not the woman that we want to be screwing.

She is willing to be silent and let you burn and die off.
Thinking about space travel? Today it is not yours to be bought.

PUT THE FIRE OUT. Cease and desist on the idea of making a profit.
God gave the Earth to all of us – before you destroy it, He’ll stop it.

He won’t come back as in bursting through the clouds,
because man has put forth plans to burn mother Earth to the ground.

But He will continue to look after His children who remain fair
and secure a pit for those who support Earth’s fiery land snares.

It’s simple. Think about it for just one minute.
When folks set traps for others, they, themselves fall in it.

It’s old news, its life news. There’s nothing new about this story.
So if you’re wondering if Jesus is on his way? This is no invitation to glory.

This is a tale being told by a man.
If you’re a praying person, God has a plan.

Get in it and get busy caring for your Earth.
Selfish money hoarders, there’s a pit for your girth.

Pray for the world – yes! And remember God is mightier than Gibraltar,
I’m Qui
Up early thinking about CARBON emissions and things being ALTERED.

The bed you make will be your own.
To burn down the AMAZON is to burn down your own home.

YOU LIVE ON EARTH!

At current — this Thursday is parched
with the thirst of the public’s revelation – at its start.

Right Now that’s what’s going on.
No more singing the “blind clarity” song.

Did you see via Robert Mueller’s lenses?
Words were legal but there were no minces.

He said, in the report ‘that if he could, he would
have told us that the prez was innocent and that all was good

then he said, ‘but the report didn’t state that,’
because that wouldn’t have been a revelation of the facts.

What you say? And um, do what?
Right Now the White House’s lawn looks rough.

So far, so far
[we are] from the word salad of Barr.

Hardy-har-har? I don’t think it’s funny at all.
For the low-hanging “i-word” – many are mid-call.

The speaker of the house resides in a decision-stall. It isn’t easy.
She still remembers what happened to the Repubs when they impeached Bill Cleezy.

Bill Clinton was impeached for lying — one time.
Congress needs to step up and put it all on the line.

Don’t be scared this time.
Follow the constitutions etch and all will be fine.

I will be honest with you,
I’m a bit on-the-fence too.

‘Not overly optimistic about pulling anyone out of position.
I’d rather see our current course just cease;
put the country’s degradation in remission.

That’s all.
To take a breath; an intellectual stall

like the speaker of the house.
Wisdom at the highest levels is still allowed.

Yes-boom pow!
Let’s all reassess, Right Now.

Be not hasty in making any moves.
Adhere to the constitution for leading grooves.

At current — this Thursday is looking kind of parched
with thirst from the public’s inquisition at its start.

Now what? And how now brown cow?
