Karma's WORLD On Netflix is a Provocative And Entertaining Series

Review by nZinga Austin

Karma's World is another African American character on Netflix.  My father asked "are there any more Black cartoons on Netflix?" 

This animation reminds me of Motown Magic because it has music in the cartoon.  Ludacris, the hip hop star turned actor is the creator of this cartoon.  I don't know this show that well but Karma Grant, is one of the main characters in the show and also her brother Keys Grant.

Despite The Rich Storytelling Heritage of Rappers Coming From Our African Griot Legacy Too Many Are Dying Young

By Dr. Charles L. Singleton, The Family Journal, USA & Overseas

Griots of West Africa told reportorial stories during multiple centuries dating back to the 13th century, and long before Spain’s slavery colonization of the Caribbean in the 15th century, and the Spanish and Portuguese (Brazilian 1550s) sugar plantations (18th, 19th, and 20th centuries). Also, these gifted orators and performers existed before America’s enslavement of African captives on The White Lion English privateer ship, August 20, 1619, Jamestown, Virginia and thereafter: 17th and 18th centuries of American colonization. --- Written Sources
 
The griots were traveling musicians, singers, poets, and oral family historians. Their inherently gifted knowledge and cultural influence (rhythmic beats, verbiages, dialects, etc.), throughout the Americas, helped us to create our language and music today from the list below:

Slave Ships “Drumless Backing” Utterances (painful grunts, agonizing groans, and mournful suicides), Haiti's Creole Songs Since 1492: Caribbean 15th Century Songs; the Jamaican "Patwa," an English-based Creole West African Language (1533-1807: Rocksteady & Reggae Music 1960s - 1980s, Bob Marley (1945-1981) and various artists ), and the United States 17th and 18th Centuries’ Hambone Song, "Pattin' Juba," Calypso Afro-Caribbean Music (mid 19 century/mid-20th century: Trinidad, Tobago, Antilles, and Venezuela).

Yes, Gullah Geechee Talk (cumbaya or Kumbaya, okra, tote, obuh yuh, yent, ynnah, yenna name, buckruh, cootuh), and Geechee Songs; Cotton Field Songs, Underground Railroad Songs, African American Work Songs and Hollers; Hymn Choir Songs, Spirituals and Gospel Music; Instrumental and Vocal Praise & Worship Songs; “Say Yes, Say Yes” (West African Style and Afrobeat), Blues and Jazz Songs, Rhythm and Blues, Rock and Roll Music (1940s - 1950s), Soul Music (1950s - 1960s), the 1960s Funk Music and 1970s Hip-Hop Music, and Rap Songs; Dap: “Juba” or Hamboning-Like Fashion, Gestural-Rhythmic Greetings, “Five on the Black Hand Side,” 1960s -1970s, by Black G. I. s (African American Communities, Vietnam and other Asia-Pacific Countries: APAC). In addition, the Soulful Dance Steps of James Brown (1933-2006), Michael Jackson (1958-2009), Football Touchdown End Zone Dances of NFL, College, High School Football Players, and Youth Football League Players.  And the 1970s - 1980s Poetic Words and Soul Music of Gil Scott-Heron (1949-2011), "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised." ---Oral and Written Sources, 187 Years of Recorded History, The Family Journal, USA & Overseas Archives, 2005-2021

Did The Justice System Fail Fred Harris, A 19-Year Old Black Youngster With Special Needs Brutally Murdered In A Texas Jail Cell? 

Written By nZinga And Kamau Austin, Co-publishers Scoop Publications

Fred Harris was a 19 year old boy with special needs.  It has been reported by friends and family that he was a friendly and liked young man despite his mental challenges. It was claimed in some media sources that Harris was in a group home.

For some reason supporters claim Fred had a knife in his hand and seemed to feel threatened by someone.  It may be that he was afraid of something and maybe somebody bullied him in our experience.  Many times people with special needs are made fun of and often bullied.

This happened in ironically Harris County, Texas near Houston.  The police were called on Fred Harris, and they arrested him and took him to "a holding cell on the third floor of the 1200 Baker Street jail around 11:16 p.m" according to Click 2 Houston local news.  Different media sources give various details on where actually Harris was arrested.  But it is claimed he was brought into jail October 11th.  See The Family And Legal Press Conference for Fred Harris below...
