"Ask God for anything you want, but be content with what he gives you"-Joyce Meyer (via lvckydvcky)
When people say be careful for what you ask for I think that’s definitely true. Because God might give you what you want but not before you have to go through some things to get there.(via daniellemertina)
Tis the season to TURN UP
him so fine
We should know by know the Media doesn’t want to show us positive black stories so we do our best at SanCopha League To share as many as possible. Meet Stephen R. Stafford.
"At just 16 years old, Stephen R. Stafford II has accomplished more than most of the general population.
He is currently earning credits toward his triple major at Morehouse College —pre-med, mathematics and computer science.
The genius has yet another achievement to add to his list. He made “The World’s 50 Smartest Teenagers.”
Stephen started at Morehouse College at 11 years of age because his mother, who was homeschooling him, could not keep up with his potential. The college student is also a talented classical pianist; he began to play the piano at the age of two. When asked about his exceptional abilities, the teen replies: “I’m just like any other kid. I just learn very, very quickly.”
Georgia law requires a student to be 16 before they can graduate from high school. Because of this, Stephen will receive his college degrees just one year after he graduates high school. His plans are to attended Morehouse School of Medicine, where he is expected to graduate from the school at 22.”

Would reblog if he were fucking white. This is amazing for anyone.
^^^ why is that even necessary?
I actually watched this last night
Happy Beyoncé Day! Wondering where that powerful sample in the middle of “Flawless” came from? That would be author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED Talk, We Should All Be Feminists. Her beautiful, acclaimed novel AMERICANAH is out now and is Beyoncé-approved.
YES IM WITH IT
I’m just going to take a moment to appreciate the shit out of this woman right here. Now listen, this - if you don’t know - is Tina Muthafuckin’ Turner aka Anna Mae Bullock from Nutbush, Tennesse. She is the definition of badass. Not only is she the QUEEN OF ROCK, who has sold more concert tickets than any other entertainer ever (as of now), but she is a domestic violence survivor.
SHE IS A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SURVIVOR.
SHE GOT OUT OF A 14 YEAR HELLISH MARRIAGE AND TOOK NOTHING BUT HER NAME AND THE DEBT FROM CANCELLED SHOWS.
BUT DID SHE LET THAT STOP HER? HELL NO.
SHE GOT HER HEAD RIGHT, GOT HER SHIT TOGETHER,
AND SHE WENT ON TO A BIGGER CAREER THAN HER EX-HUSBAND EVER DREAMT OF, AND TRANSCENDED AGEISM IN A YOUTH DOMINATED INDUSTRY.
SHE JUST TURNED 74 YEARS OLD THREE DAYS AGO, AND I’M SO GRATEFUL THAT SHE’S AROUND AND IS STILL SLAYING.
This is the woman who inspired Queen Bey, ya’ll. If you don’t love Tina Turner, I don’t know who you are.
She’ll forever have my adoration.
