Abornewords Books: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie On Feminism And Thoughts On Childish Gambinos Viral Video

May 11, 2018


(L to R) Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Oprah



In an interview conducted by Rich Fahle, after Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (CNA) released her latest book, the Author helped me to make the connection between her ideas of feminism and a topic Blogger and Model, Leah Vernon asked her followers to weigh in on. For now, I digress elaborating on the specific topic, in order to share more about her interview and ideas of feminism. "We Should All Be Feminist" said Adichie. Highlighting that feminism should involve men also helped me to realize the magnitude male support can have on the movement and it is easy to understand that women should not be the only voices rallying the cause. Refusing to be bound is how the Author describes her Grandmother and her vision of feminism calls on words and actions that are disruptive and loud, inclusive of disagreements. Like feminism, racism, violence and inequality create a political tug-a-war and are often shared in the news by media powers daily. Those issues are likely happening in our environment to someone in someplace everyday.

Those ideas are a perfect segway to more on Blogger and Model Leah Vernons request to her followers. The request? Weigh in on Childish Gambinos video for This Is America. Yes, it is trending and it did go viral so it warrants a discussion. Here it is. Though I have only heard of its impact via a CBS News Segment, my understanding immediately shifted away from focusing on inequality, violence, and racism. My personal and professional experience has taught me, I must be humble and that attribute requires a certain level of tolerance and patience, especially if I am to embrace it properly. I realize, I do not have to be first, be the loudest or be given any authority by someone else to have an impact. I can contribute, share and I still have a purpose, even if I am last and have less.

My title or skin color does not make me equal or more entitled. With those ideas in mind, I also understand, I do not always have to be assertive and not being assertive does not mean I am a doormat. There is chaos in our world, affecting all of us in different ways and we should not need a video to remind us of whats happening around us. Still, having it may help us to reflect a lot more attentively. By watching the news, videos, and also realizing our political tug-a-wars, we can keep talking while staying engaged in some way. "This Is America" makes me appreciate Childish Gambino's art and mode of expression and I choose to let that be my focus more than the political tug-a-wars that divide us. You can watch Chimamanda's Interview here, if you are interested. 

That's all. Kudos....

Abornewords Delicious: Kelis Demonstrates How To Make Mac & Cheese Without The Chemicals

April 4, 2018


According to Roni Caryn Rabin, chemicals called phthalates migrate their way into the powdered cheese from the package and equipment used during manufacturing. Mom's beware!
