This has been my life over the years accused of being "bougie" , a "nerd" and everything but a child of Jesus! I tell ya! Anyway sometime late in the spring of 13 on twitter I found them!
That's right those known as BLERDS! Or Black Nerds aka Black Geeks MY PEOPLE! And now on Thursday nights I connect with THEM! And I eat lemon martini cupcakes and it's just freaking awesome! We talk about everything from Technology, News,Angela Davis, Maya Angelou, Thundercats, Gem and my new word & thing Afrofuturism! Not sure what the heck that is check out the definition below! Finally at almost 50 I found my people other blacks who reject living the stereotyped Boys in the Hood/Wire lifestyle! This is ME doing "Black" MY way they BLERD way!
For me #AfroFuturism is depictions of the future involving the participation + contributions of the African diaspora #blerdchat
