Blog post about blog posts.

I’ve got a dilemma. I’ve got Unknown Fruit’s blog sitting quietly in a corner waiting my say so to move. Why exactly? 

I don’t know what the fuck to blog about.

And that’s sad because I’m running three blogs right now.

  1. itsatokz.com (Currently Under Construction)
  2. My Tokzik World (This one, obviously. Partially under construction.)
  3. Ottotokzadventures.com (Currently waiting for me to not be too busy to edit the last set of New Jersey snow photos.)

Well, I’m kinda running three blogs. I’m a little behind, which is why I’m in the midst of organizing my topics. This blog is gonna remain my personal with a few reblogs here and there, but I plan to have a few things that I post every week. You know, wishlists, art updates, life updates, shit like that. Then, on my portfolio, I’ll be posting creative diaries to jog my creative mind, freebies like wallpapers, shop updates, and updates on other art projects I’m working on. I’ll also do a learning section where I post my colour studies, font combinations, and moodboards from projects.

"That’s all fine and dandy, Tokz, I don’t exactly see your dilemma.."

Well, you see, that doesn’t exactly free up much space of what to blog about with Unknown Fruit. I’ve decided that I would feature a new artist every month with a few interview questions and some of their art that might follow a specific theme of that month. But that’s one blog post a month. There’s no way anyone would come back every month for just one post. A few ideas I’ve come up with so far?

  • Music I like/What matches the brand (I’ve already got this feature on two out of three blogs. Plus, doesn’t everyone do that?)
  • People who changed the world by being different? (An every monday inspiration segment about being yourself, of course.)

That’s about it. I keep waiting for it to come to me and I’m drawing a huge blank. Perhaps a written blog isn’t the way to go? What about a visual blog of just pictures? Does that even fit the message I’m trying to get across? How exactly do I convey that message anyway?

What does it mean to be African American?

A friend of mine that I’ve known since about Middle School, asked me to check out this vlog he made for a group he started called The African American Collective. After a few history classes, he realized something.

"We as an African American Community have lost our identity — through all the things we’ve gone through over the years.."

-Nicholas Ubiera

To be Black in America to me, means too many things to just pinpoint. What do I mean by that? America is made of almost every race across this entire earth. With that being said, we all come in different shades and tones. We don’t ask “What does it mean to be White in America?” and apply only one set of rules to an entire tone in which several races (English, Russian, German, etc.) inhabit. This isn’t to say that we shouldn’t have a sense of identity. To me, especially in this country, I feel we should look past race in its entirety and simply ask, who are you as an individual? The more we realize the common strands we all share, we’ll be able to look past this racial issue. By placing a label on ourselves with questions like these, we divide our community even more. When we show the common similarities, we’ll be able to change minds. Yes, we have hair curlier and a bit thicker than those of other tones and shades. But by educating each other on our similarities, we’ll all be able to appreciate the individual traits that makes everyone different.

At the same time, though, ignorance is an all around human trait. Sometimes, the amount of education you give can never compensate for an ignorant mind. In that particular case, to be black in America means to be strong. To hold your head up and push for a better cause through the bullshit. Even with our past and everything we have gone through (and some of us continue to go through) we have to be strong and push forward for a better world. Make sure our voices are heard, clearly and intelligently when things are morally wrong instead of just racially wrong. The more we continue to be strong through the terrible circumstances that tend to happen, we may just help someone else change their mind.
