Thank you @ulysses.terrero @newyorkcitysauce for inviting me out to perform for y’all. It’s such a generous platform and it was a great night full of great artists.

Black women will always be ‘too loud’ for a world that never intended on listening to them. But  I swear I’m gonna make them listen. My black pride is something that’ll never leave me and I’m grateful for my parents creating such a beautiful black soul. ✊🏾🐐❤️ #happyblackhistorymonth #blackpower #wakandaforever #morelife #blacklivesmatter #stayblessed.

This pairing has such a connection to my life in relation to my passion for shoes and food, but the greatest parallel is my travel through life as a bi-racial man. As Black History Month comes to a close, I want to celebrate this shoe, along with the great man behind it; not excluding Nike, their support for the culture and the voices of the athletes that represent it.
.
When you’re bi-racial things are far from black and white. It’s more complicated to find where you’re really accepted. At times I didn’t feel “black enough” or “white enough.” I struggled to find people to help me navigate the world being mixed. I learned to become a chameleon; my color didn’t change, but I could change your perception of my color in order to try and fit in. The other added layer was having interracial parents who couldn’t completely identify with my struggle, though they experienced their own form of rejection for staying together during a time when it was much less accepted. We’ll be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary next year!
.
Though different colors, you need both of these shoes to make a pair, as I needed both my parents to become the man I am today.
.
More than ever, the divide is evident. Our differences shouldn’t make us fearful, but rather stronger. Progress towards greater diversity should be lead with love and understanding. In an interview the other day, my daughter said, “You can’t be what you can’t see.” This was the first time I had heard/read this. The change starts at home in how we raise our kids. #bethechange

The tallest man ever in medical history for whom there is irrefutable evidence is Robert Wadlow, who when last measured on 27 June 1940 was found to be 2.72 m (8 ft 11.1 in) tall. He remains the tallest person in the world, ever.
 He would continue to grow throughout his tragically short life and at the time of his death (at the young age of 22), he stood a towering 8’11 and weighed over 400 pounds. Wadlow had maintained good health in his life but often had little feeling in his feet, which would sadly be his downfall. Unable to feel his feet chaffing until wounds formed, one such wound became infected and ended up poisoning his entire body.
During his brief life, Wadlow managed to garner a fair amount of celebrity and his funeral was attended by tens of thousands of admirers. His body was returned to Alton and buried in a solid concrete grave to avoid any tampering.
