So PROUD of YOU!!!! 😍😍😍 #Repost @conradricamora ・・・ !!!CLICK ON THE LINK IN MY BIO TO BUY MY FIRST EVER SINGLE ON ITUNES!!!! I can’t explain what this moment means to me. When I was a little boy I used to sing. And then at a certain age, society shamed me (the way it does to all boys who try to express themselves) and told me I was wrong. So I stopped singing. For years. NOW...to be able to release my first ever single feels like I’m reclaiming that joy and freedom that little boy had and lost. So here’s my first ever single. ❀️ thanks to @kinglouie_official on piano and @konsciousstudios for the amazing studio and @ricardobirnbaumphotography for the beautiful album cover.

πŸ‘‡πŸΎπŸ‘‡πŸΎπŸ‘‡πŸΎ #Repost @seekellymccreary ・・・ β€œWhen comparing all men and women who work full time, year round in the United States, women are paid 80 cents for every dollar paid to their male counterparts. But the wage gap is even larger when looking specifically at Black women who work full time, year round: they are paid only 63 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. This gap, which amounts to a loss of $21,698 a year, means that Black women have to work more than a year and a half (19 months) to earn as much as white, non-Hispanic men in the previous 12-month calendar year. Over time, the wage gap has a compounding effect on Black women’s ability to build wealth (such as liquid savings, retirement savings, investments, real estate or business assets). Recent data shows that single Black women have a median wealth amounting to $200, which is paltry compared to what single white women ($15,640) and single white, non-Hispanic men ($28,900) own. The wage gap plays a pivotal role in contributing to this wealth gap, and is an obstacle to Black women’s economic security over the course of their lifetimes.” - National Women’s Law Center

I couldn’t be more proud to call you my friend @mattmcgorry and thank you to all the other men out there that understand that women aren’t the only ones that need to engage in this conversation and action to make a change! Repost @mattmcgorry I can’t overstate how proud I am to be part of @wearemanenough, and in particular, this episode. (Swipe for trailer) * It should not solely have to be on women to call out sexual harassment and misogyny. Men need to take up this burden as well. So far women & specifically women of color have led the global movements in regards to battling sexism and gender inequality, but we as men have barely entered the conversation. This has to change. We need to do some serious self reflection. And then we have to ACT. In order to be a part of the solution, there are a number of principles that I strive to live my life by now (having made plenty of mistakes in the past & undoubtedly with more to come in the future). Three of those core principles are to Listen, Amplify, and Unlearn. On #ManEnough, we discuss negative mindsets that can be improved upon and in doing so how we can change negative patterns of behavior, create culture-shifting dialogue and in turn, move towards a better future. We do this because we know that so many of the harmful pressures of what it means to be a β€œreal man” in our culture also leads us away from being true allies and accomplices to women and non-binary people. And we know that no one is free until we are all free. Through conversation, honest dialogue, and real-time action we hope to redefine what it means to be men in both The United States America and globally. Please join us on this journey. * Tag a friend and join me for the premiere TODAY of the @wearemanenough #MeToo episode on Facebook Watch. * I am proud to be both a participant and a producer of #ManEnough * http://bit.ly/2JQosiq (link in bio) * Featuring @justinbaldoni, @mattmcgorry, Jamey Heath, @lewishowes, @scooterbraun, Tony Porter, @advertisi

These words continue to move me... β€œbreathe and PUSH” ...Now is the time to Push! #Repost @valariekaur ・・・ I woke up this morning to this stunning art and the words of a prayer I gave the day after the election. Any nourishment my words gave you, you returned to me today ten-fold, artist @kimothyjoy. . A SIKH PRAYER FOR AMERICA ON NOV 9, 2016 . In our tears and agony, we hold our children close and confront the truth: The future is dark. . But my faith dares me to ask: . What if this darkness is not the darkness of the tomb, but the darkness of the womb? . What if our America is not dead but a country still waiting to be born? What if the story of America is one long labor? . What if all the mothers who came before us, who survived genocide and occupation, slavery and Jim Crow, racism and xenophobia and Islamophobia, political oppression and sexual assault, are standing behind us now, whispering in our ear: You are brave? What if this is our Great Contraction before we birth a new future? . Remember the wisdom of the midwife: . β€œBreathe,” she says. Then: β€œPush.” . Now it is time to breathe. But soon it will be time to push; soon it will be time to fight β€” for those we love β€” Muslim father, Sikh son, trans daughter, indigenous brother, immigrant sister, white worker, the poor and forgotten, and the ones who cast their vote out of resentment and fear. . Let us make an oath to fight for the soul of America β€” β€œThe land that never has been yetβ€” And yet must be” (Langston Hughes) β€” with Revolutionary Love and relentless optimism. And so I pray this Sikh prayer: . Nanak Naam Chardi Kala, Tere Bane Sarbat Da Bhalla β€œIn the name of the Divine within us and around us, we find everlasting optimism. Within your will, may there be grace for all of humanity.” . Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

NOPE πŸš΄πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ . Did I stop several times along the way and take breaks? Obviously. . ...At the end of the day all that matters is that I tried, bonus was making it to the top, triple bonus was the exhilarating ride down.
