Black Prophets

Posted on October 23, 2009 at 5:30pm 2 Comments

I am going to make the rather radical statement that Science Fiction as a genre is "modern" prophesy. It is prophetic because it states with great accuracy who men and women will react when the changes caused by new technologies alter our environment. Whether it be faster-than-light space travel, meeting new species, or facing god-like decisions that new technology made possible.

If you doubt the importance of Sci-Fi in the creation of prophecy all you have to do is look at history.… Continue

Hello Mr. Grimmett,

I appreciate your aspect of the profile regarding how main stream media has generally ignored the creative ideas and inventions of black people. Fortunately, "main stream" is now becoming more diversified. When I was in elementary school during the 1960's, we were taught mostly European and Caucasian American history. And of course, the only advances made by black people were how to be better slaves.

A few months ago, I stumbled onto a magazine entitled American Legacy. I was utterly blown away by the rich cultural heritage as well as the phenomenal advances made by black people in American history-events that were never mentioned when I was going to school.

As a lover of accurately portrayed history, I have appreciated over the decades the contributions by people of all races, especially minorities. Now we're breaking down walls in the science fiction genre. Please do not get me wrong. I am quite fond of science fiction movies like Star Trek, Star Wars, Star Gate SG-1 and Star Gate Atlantis.

But I have a plan too. They are called the Anatahn Military Alliance. These “brothers from outer space” will be far more menacing than any Borg.

The Perfect Fluid...

If collisions between small projectiles -- protons (p), deuterons (d), and helium-3 nuclei (3He) -- and gold nuclei (Au) create tiny hot spots of quark-gluon plasma, the pattern of particles picked up by the detector should retain some 'memory' of each projectile's initial shape. Measurements from the PHENIX experiment match these predictions with very strong correlations between the initial geometry and the final flow patterns.

Peace. As the post title says, (inspired by Rakim's greatest opening lines), this marks somewhat of a return. I have not posted in a long while, so here I am. I hope everyone whom I have not communicated with; are doing well. 

I will be checking in more often than not.

The Diversity Track & Black Science Fiction Society Back For Dragoncon 2019

I just got news this week that the Diversity Track will be back for 2019 at DragonCon. I'm excited to be invited back for another groundbreaking event. Everyone associated with the first one this year knocked it out of the park! I could not ask for better volunteers, guests, photographers, moderators and participants.

Assault of the Mainstream

Posted by Turtel Onli on December 6, 2018 at 8:10am 1 Comment

Now that the Mainstream has tried and failed to take the life force outta the growing indie-Black age movement with its "afro-futuristic" blockbuster along with its here today-gone tomorrow great token Hero of Harlem, who among us is really about winning at  this challenge and profiting from the opportunities it presents?

Their best efforts to corner and control the Black Age is my proof that we are actually winning in this war for minds and market shares.....inspite of addictive  brand loyalty...the Black On Black boycott....and culturally based anti-intellectualisms.  I often present on panels.....over the years since San Diego,,,,,Wizards.......C2E2.....on the Black Age or diversity....  Usually with a lame unprofessional uninformed person in charge.  Each time some hater stands up to taut how racist the Black Age is and how he of she gets so much more outta Manga/Anime'.

Sort of like all of the Black folks that spent 8 years complaining about…

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
