Being Alone, Children, and Fresh: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Talks 'Black Panther' with Ryan Coogler: "If You're Black, You'll Leave With a Straighter Walk, a Gratitude For Your African Heritage, and a Superhero Whom Black Children Can Relate To" @balleralert Read more: www.balleralert.com Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Talks ‘Black Panther’ with Ryan Coogler: “If You're Black, You'll Leave With a Straighter Walk, a Gratitude For Your African Heritage, and a Superhero Whom Black Children Can Relate To” - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘Black Panther’ isn’t just another film; it’s a moment of cultural celebration and appreciation, especially for the mainstream representation of blacks in Hollywood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here you have a traditional superhero film spearheaded by a predominantly black cast and Mr. RyanCoogler, a black man who not only directed, but also co-wrote it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That alone speaks volumes, particularly in today’s pop culture climate.

Family, Friends, and Google: ALLI WANT IS PEACE OF MIND. Peace of mimd? What is it? Is a state of mental and emotional calmness, with no worries, fears or stress. In this state, the mind is quiet, and you experience a sense of happiness and freedom. (Google definition) Now, how can you bring more peace of mind into your life? You might also ask, whether it is possible to turn it into a habit, and enjoy it always and under all circumstances. Actually, there are a few things you can do to enjoy more peace in your life, and in time, you might gain the ability to experience it quite often. ✔️Minimize the time you spend on reading newspapers or watching the news on TV. Since most of the news are negative news, and you cannot do anything about them, why should you think about them and feel stressed and anxious? ✔️Stay away from negative conversations and from negative people. You don't want their thoughts and words to sink into your subconscious mind and affect your moods and state of mind. ✔️Don't hold grudges. Learn to forget and forgive. ✔️Don't be jealous of other people. Jealousy means that you have low self-esteem, and therefore, consider yourself inferior to other people. ✔️Learn to be more patient and tolerant with family, friends, co-workers, employees, and everyone else. - Inner peace eventually, leads to external peace. By creating peace in your inner world, in your mind, you bring it into your external world, and into other people's lives. And of course… IF you didn’t know, now you know 😉 - peace mind peaceful millionairementor

Luis is a fellow Bruin, an activist and a fighter! Through his advocacy, Luis has helped thousands of young immigrants in California apply for DACA despite not being eligible to apply himself. Luis attended LA Mission College and began his activism in the early 2000s. He played an important role in the early fight for the CA Dream Act, the Federal DreamAct, DACA, and other pro-immigration legislation. Luis did not qualify for DACA because he aged out but that didn't discouraged him from continuing to fight for the immigrant community. I remember the first time I heard the story of an undocumented student studying law at @UCLA and thinking to myself "if we can learn the law, then we can definitely change the law, represent our people in court, and bring about greater change". Luis was one of the reasons why I decided to transfer to UCLA - I knew that it was the breeding ground of undocumented student leaders and organizers. Luis is an inspiration to so many of us and it was an honor to attend his swearing in ceremony!
