Facts, Food, and Growing Up: A teaspoon of honey represents the life work of 12 bees. rainnecassidy: congenitalprogramming: cotestuck: montypla: meloromantics: appropriately-inappropriate: audreyvhorne: sttinkerbelle: vmpolung: knowledgeandlove: Photo source Fact check source #and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work. That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will. This is why honey is not vegan. The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus. The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc. Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival. It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly. literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey Beekeepers- Provide a home for the bees Keep that home warm in the winter Keep the bees well fed, negating the need for honey, which the bees would make anyways Still do not take all the honey, just in case Protect the bees from predators Monitor the hives for any signs of the parasites, diseases, etc. that cause colony collapse disorder Their bees- Provide a valuable and reliable source of pollination for plants in the area, both wild and crops Help keep the local ecosystem healthy Honey- Is one of the healthiest things you can eat Is able to keep for a EXTREMELY long time (Millennia even), making it more valuable than many perishable foods without being full of preservatives Can be used to soothe sore throats, nauseau, etc. Has been eaten by humans since at least Ancient Egypt (We’ve found STILL EDIBLE honey in tombs) Is a great tool in cooking, adding sweetness without raising the sugar content much Is a staple food in many people’s diets Honey is amazing you can put it on or in pretty much everything I goddamn love it and you should too. Honey is also a natural antimicrobial that has been used medicinally since time out of mind on external wounds like edible neosporin. Particularly useful in the treatment of dermal abcesses. “oh no we steal it from the bees!”*has no problem benefiting from exploited migrant farm workers* ^^^

Cars, Church, and Clothes: Drake Sends Haitian Mother From Miami On A $10,000 Shopping Spree @balleralert Drake Sends Haitian Mother From Miami On A $10,000 Shopping Spree-blogged by @worldwidekeege ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Drake went to Miami and blew a bag, but not on jewelry, clothes and expensive cars as most would think. It was all in charitable efforts, in fact. We all saw his school jersey uniform and scholarship blessing to the Miami school. Then topping it off with paying the tabs for an entire grocery store full of customers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now the Miami Herald reports that the 6 god showered a Haitian maid from Miami, Adelie Paret, with a $10,000 Shopping Spree. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Miami Herald recently told the story of the mother of 5, who takes 2 buses to work at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, and must clean 14 rooms per shift to provide for her loved ones. Drake read her story and was inspired alongside Pittsburgh Steelers player, Antonio Brown, to adorn her like the Queen she was. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A woman called and told her that someone had made arrangements for her to get a massage, followed by an elegant dinner with a limo ride. She was unaware who had done so but decided to go along with the day of pampering. The finale of it all was a Saks & 5th Ave shopping spree. Drake and Brown met Paret there in an empty store that had been closed for just herself, and 2 other women to have the shopping experience of a lifetime. They had 45 minutes in the store with no spending limit. Imagine the possibilities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She got an $800 pair of flats for church, a $2,000 Valentino purse, a $6,000 18-karat gold necklace with diamonds, and a couple of perfumes for the road. Although speechless at the beginning of the shopping spree, the Miami Herald noted that she thanked Drake so much. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Look at Drake spreading joy all over the world. Swipe left to see Drake’s reaction to it all.

Head, Saw, and Struggle: FRANCE MILITAIRE Incendie de la Plaine du Cap Massacre des Blancs par le Noirs todayinhistory: January 1st 1804: Haitian independence On this day in 1804 French rule officially ended in Haiti, making the country the world’s first black republic. As a French colony, Haiti was largely populated with slaves and ruled by a slaveholding minority, and resentment brewed among the enslaved black majority. Inspired by the French Revolution of 1789, white planters began to push for independence from French rule as they felt underrepresented and over-taxed, thus setting the stage for an independence movement. In 1791, in one of the most remarkable events in history, slaves in Saint-Domingue (the colonial name for Haiti) seized this momentum and began a revolution which became the only successful slave rebellion in history, as it toppled the white minority rule and led to the abolition of slavery in the country. The revolution was led by former slave Toussaint l'Ouverture, nicknamed ‘the Black Napoleon’, until his death in a French prison in 1803. After a bitter struggle which saw many thousands lose their lives, the slaves of Haiti achieved their goal, defeating the French and seeing Haiti become an independent nation at the beginning of 1804. Independence was declared, and the nation was renamed ‘Haiti’, by military general and former slave Jean-Jacques Dessalines, who replaced l'Ouverture at the head of the revolution. The success of the Haitian revolution challenged the remaining slave systems of the world, especially that of the United States, as it refuted racist pro-slavery ideology that suggested African slaves were content in bondage and were incapable of political agency.

Africa, Beautiful, and Dating: What is a Queen wthout her nj My daughter will be African, her mother is going to teach her to love her natural beauty, from the moment she is born. I will teach her the same, not just by what I tell her, but what I show her. Her mother will be African & practice natural beauty as a way of life just by being true to her ancestors & her beautiful African culture. We will raise her eating organic, natural electrical alkaline soul food. There will be no superficiality, she will be home schooled or schooled in a pan African school run by Africans & taught an Afrocentric curriculum. I went to European school, run by Europeans, that had a European curriculum. It was miseducation. It's fine for Europeans but not for Africans. We will make sure she knows Herstory not just the story of men. We will inform her about all religions & show her the reality of man & how regardless of his preaching, his actions negate his fantasies. We will teach her about MA'AT, food combining, circadian rhythms of the body, police brutality, transatlantic & trans Saharan slavery, colonialism, Kemet, Kush, the dogon, the himba, the Gerzeans, Badarians & Nagadans, because many of the Neolithic African cultures were matriarchal, she will learn this when I teach her about the people at Merimde & how the Africans called the Natufians were the first peoples in Palestine 10,000 years ago. I will teach her how using radiocarbon dating, the Archaeologists Alison brooks & John Yellen have uncovered artefacts that highlight advanced Katandan & Ishango cultures in east central Africa, that date back as old as 70,000 years ago. This level of advancement was not achieved out of Africa until at least 54,000 years later. I will teach her about the Queens, the farmers the freedom fighters and the mothers of civilisation. How it was an African woman Fatima Cécile Fatiman, who was the spiritual leader of the Haitian revolution, she organised the Voodoo ceremony at Bois Caïman which was the starting point for the only revolution in human history, where the enslaved population have overthrown the oppressive goverment & become the goverment. I will teach her that she matters & is a Goddess & original creator of life. chakabars
