Healthy eating has definitely become a privilege to those who, one can afford to buy that food and number two, people who have the ability to research and look into all these things. I think it’s done on purpose. It’s made hard to educate yourself on being healthy in order to keep the gaps in society the way they are. It’s like they don’t want people to be healthy and be happy. Maybe they look at it from the point of view that it would be harder to control healthy, happy people; they’d question things more. If people were more educated, people would be questioning everything in this country.

Happy Father’s Day to my Husband, The coolest Rasta Dad ever. So laid back! He just let the women of his life run wild. He certainly knows how to deal with his wild and crazy daughter “Ziggy” I guess that comes from growing up in a house with 6 sisters. I love this man so much although almost everyday I wear him out about something. Sorry Boo I guess it’s the little SE DC girl in me ;-) Love you Baby Happy Father’s Day and yes I will go half on another little Rugrat soon!!!!!!!!!!

I came across Kent’s images some time ago and was drawn particularly to his capture of black bodies, often minimal but yet beautifully highlighting dark hues.
