Quemela thoughts to @flight23white about this video
After seeing this video, I just had to dish out some knowledge to you my young brotha.
She don’t understand what”Black History Month” is about. She’s looking at it as a racial thing. Maybe she was taught the wrong meaning of “Black History Month” by her parents.
Many of you young folks don’t understand that “Black Negro Month was created in 1926 to celebrate the success of Black People so they can be proud of their achievements and success. Then in 1976 it was changed to “Black History Month”
Now somewhere over centuries and years and along the way, someone decided to make ” Black History Month a racial thing. White folks always complaining about what Blacks have and don’t want them to come up, but that’s only to keep our Black Children down where they won’t be able to learn.
But just know and remember my young brotha, our Ancestors slaved hard and fought for not only their rights and success but ours too.
BUT!!! She’s right about one thing, We are not the Minority.
In my opinion we never were. Wish all blacks understood that, but some don’t and some live in fear every day.
Don’t let folks throw you off my brotha. It has nothing to do with racism, but everything to do with KNOWLEDGE!!! ALSO We’re not the Minority and have never been. Keep that in mind always!!!
HERE’S A LINK ….CHECK IT OUT
Btw love your shows and channels.
Keep up the great work.

Family obligations jeopardize the aspirations of a psalmist (Deitrick Haddon) who dreams of becoming a gospel
Initial release: 2010
Director: Joel Kapity
Initial DVD release: July 27, 2010
Deitrick Vaughn Haddon (born May 17, 1973) is a Gospel singer, songwriter, music producer, pastor, and actor. He is best known for progressive gospel, and contemporary styles of music.
He is also one of the cast members in Oxygen’s reality television show Preachers of L.A..
Haddon launched his solo career as a Christian R&B vocalist with the Lost & Found on Tyscot/Verity in 2002. The set peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Charts and received wide critical acclaim and spawned the hit “Sinner’s Prayer” which received heavy spins on gospel and mainstream R&B radio stations.
The 70’s-leaning Crossroads followed in 2004, led off by the upbeat single “God Is Good”. In an uncharacteristic move for marketing a gospel album, Detrick made an appearance on the long-running syndicated series Soul Trainperforming the single as well as the title track from the album.
Haddon appeared to be pushing his Gospel artistry further into the ranks of mainstream venues with 7 Days, released October 10, 2006. 7 Days was produced almost entirely by R&B producers Tim & Bob Balancing out the contemporary bulk of the album is the traditional gospel flavored lead single “Heaven Knows” which Deitrick produced himself.
Haddon and his brother Gerald also produced the comeback album Brand New Day for veteran gospel vocalist Vanessa Bell Armstrong. Deitrick Haddon & Voices Of Unity’s Live The Life won Gospel Music Workshop of AmericaExcellence Awards for “New Artist of the Year—Urban Contemporary” and “Album of the Year—Urban Contemporary”.
On September 2, 2008, Deitrick Haddon released another album called “Revealed”. This album includes the popular single, “Love Him Like I Do” (featuring Mary Mary and Ruben Studdard). On July 27, 2010 Haddon made his film debut in a movie released directly to DVD called “Blessed and Cursed.”
On January 25, 2011 Deitrick Haddon released the much anticipated “Church On The Moon”, his fifth album with Verity Records. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboards Top Gospel charts and #65 on the Billboard 200.
Haddon is currently part of the cast of the reality television show Preachers of L.A., which chronicles the lives of six Los Angeles preachers, including Haddon. The show began airing on October 9, 2013 and currently airs on the Oxygennetwork in the United States.
His first marriage to Damita Haddon of 15 years ended in divorce in 2011. He is currently married to Dominique McTyer-Haddon and the couple are the parents of daughters born in 2011 and 2014, and they have a son born in late 2015
I just found out on Ancestry that my Grandfather Willie John-otis Pittman was drafted in World War II. This is totally surprising to me. I even found his draft card.
I also found out my great grandfather Thomas Bowens who is the father of my Grandmother Gertrude Bowens Pittman served in the British Army World War I. He was 34 at the time. Wow he actually had papers from England of Wales and his address in England is also listed. Found his draft card on Ancestry too.
Now I’m really nervous and excited to learn even more about my grandfather. Curious to know where my bloodline leads.
If you’re a family member and love to know more. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add you. You Providing proof we’re really related.
I was just visiting Ancestry and saw that my deceased baby brother was born on this day. He was born Feb 3, 1966 and died the same day due to complications my mom was having during delivery. Sad I never got to know him, I was only a year and a month older then him. I was just a baby myself, when he died. WOW….R.I.P MY BROTHER MARVIN GREGORY DUNN- FEB 3, 1966 – FEB 3, 1966. Miss You Dearly!!!
My Brother Rudolph Dunn Jr was born 11/11/66 and died the next day 11/12/66, he also died of complications my mom were having during her pregnancy with him. So sad. R.I.P my brother I truly miss you and wish I had gotten the chance to meet you.
So I’m continuing my research on my Ancestors as this research gets interesting by the minute. If you’re a family member and want access to my tree for more info and images.
