Dear Beautiful Brickhouse...You're Mighty Mighty, Just Lettin' It ALL Hang Out! Thanks to Chicago Artist Amanda Williams @awstudioart I just found my mantra for 2018...I'm A MF Brickhouse! I'm Lettin' It ALL Hang Out...You Can't Blow Me Down! Spent yesterday in the city @mcachicago and while I saw some really cool art throughout the gallery Amanda's exhibit blew me away. Trying to explain it won't do it justice you have to see it for yourself. Let's just say these bricks have a story. If you head in go to @farmhousechicago for Brunch and sit upstairs in the sunshine...food is fresh and amazing! #newyearnewmantra #2018mantra #amandawilliams #museumcontemporaryartchicago #museumcontemporaryart #adayinthecity #chitown #chicago #chicagoartist #farmhousechicago #lesleyarlaskybrandographer #lesleyarlaskyphotography

How The News Media Distorts Black Families.

As it has been ever thus, and yet still not solved. How long?

*

For some reason, they are ennobled in the media mindset - unlike, say, poor black people, who get what they deserve.

*

Part of the problem.
