With this weekend’s opening of Marvel’s Black Panther I am excited 😃 for my people’s jubilation for the awe inspiring, positive, visual representation of so called “black people” in a world that constantly feeds us a negative one. But at the same time we must be vigilant. Brothers and sisters… one’s STYLE should be a representation of one’s HERITAGE, TRADITIONS, & CULTURE and not merely an illustration of one’s fantasies.
“A man may be known by his look, and one that hath understanding by his countenance, when thou meetest him. A man’s attire, and excessive laughter, and gait, shew what he is.” Ecclesiasticus 19:29-30 KJV 1611

To all the tribes of the earth (Matthew 24:30 KJV 1611) separate from my own (Tribe of GAD/JUDAH, Nation of ISRAEL)… I’m not “Racist.” And I know that most of you aren’t. But for those of you who are in ignorance… it’s the information age, arm yourself with KNOWledge (Hosea 4:1-5 KJV 1611)… there are 18 nations in that Bible (The Bible isn’t connected to the internet so you don’t have to worry about it crashing or being corrupted) in the back window of your car. Which one do you belong to? In the words of Lex Luthor, “GOD is TRIBAL. If HE is indeed all powerful then HE cannot be all love and if HE is all love then HE can’t be all powerful.” I’m not “Racist.” I’m just AWAKE.

JOE LOVE DA’ CHILDREN!!! LOL Had to stop by and support some of my students at the Mayor’s Art Show yesterday at the Frist! There was so much traffic that I ended up taking Optimus (my car) home and taking Jacob (my bike) instead. The above picture with the monster eye in the middle of the street is a 5th grader. He has a few anger issues, but we’re working on it! LoL As you can see, there is a LIGHT at the end of the road! The future belongs to the children!
3 Piece Suit.
So if you follow me on The IG then you know that yesterday I vowed to share my latest INVESTMENT… with you. Well, HERE IT IS! This is a $500 ELEVENTY (WARNING: Their site is SO RUDDY!) vest which I caught slippin’ at UAL (Shout Out) for $50!!!
Sometimes thinking can be a bad thing! LoL I didn’t hesitate. Remember fellas, “Versatility is KEY!” It’s actually made of Polyamide which is surprisingly warm but also light weight and everyone knows it repels water like a duck’s back! Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Why are you so excited Joe!?” You see, men knew the importance of a good vest back in the days. They didn’t just roll out, they put in some thought & dear lord, EFFORT.
You see the PINSTRIPES!!! LOL And NO, that is NOT a random picture of the late, great Josephine Baker… okay maybe it is… but who better to illustrate how the ladies will be lookin’ atcha’ fellas? Yea… Jo’ approves so I’m good! LoL *Sigh* I crack myself up. Get used to this Breastplate of Righteousness, because you’re going to be seeing ALOT of it!
