Just because my eyes are slanted and skin is a little darker doesn’t give you a reason to label me a disease
She grabbed her daughter, talking about “Get away from her she looks like she has Covid-19”
I wasn’t about to let that lady slide so I put down my phone and opened my big mouth
Told myself over and over, “Crystal breathe, please don’t shout”
And as soon as she noticed my phone out
Ol’ lady wanted to play the victim role as I predicted
Here we go with the “I didn’t say that” card, it was all too scripted
When I was just minding my business
Blind sided by another Karen infected by the illness
An illness more infectious than the Rona, SARS, Ebola two point O
A virus that destroys it’s target individuals including its host
A disease manifested in families, colleagues, and communities
So we protest in big groups to be heard – herd immunity
Got Elijah McClain in his last breathes apologizing for being different
George Stinney Jr. executed at 14 years old then later proven innocent
George Floyd screaming for his mother, while he was held down by a knee
Can somebody tell me WHY Breonna Taylor’s murderers are still out there living free?
And where is Vanessa Guillen, whatever happened to “No soldier left behind”
Would it have taken 2 days instead of 2 months if the color of her skin was white?
This isn’t a wake up call, they were just pressing the snooze button a million times
Would the outcome be different if I wasn’t standing in that aisle?
Cause in the end, the only person infected was the racism which had manifested
in that hate filled mother who just taught her child that it was okay to spread it
And what’s sad about it, is that she meant it when she said it
Racists thinking it’s a joke placing nooses in Oakland, Cali’s Lake Merritt
Racism and oppression has always been a pandemic, ain’t no curves getting flatter
But at the end of the day, all lives don’t matter, until Black Lives Matter.
On Friday, March 27, 2020, I will be launching my first Limited Edition “ADK” shoes from my upcoming All Day Kreative Shoe Collection.
The shoes that I will showcase in my upcoming collection were inspired by East and West coast flavors integrated into one.
The shoe is 100% handcrafted in Le Marche, Italy, also known as The Shoe Valley. The ADK’s features a classic high top look, pristine quality black leather, a gold sole and comfortable to wear, and eye catching. The insoles are carefully designed and made out of organic cotton and leather. It will also arrive in its own custom box. Shipping is free.
Excerpt from my bio on AliveShoes.com:
“As a kid, I wanted to be a fashion designer. I used to take my crayons and draw sketches of different outfits on construction paper. Not sure why I didn’t pursue my dream at the time, I guess you can say, I grew up and lost sight of it. However, my inner love for fashion has never left me. Plus I’ve always been a sneaker junkie. I always tell people that I’ll be wearing sneakers until I’m 80 years old. Moving forward, I travel coast to coast. For me, New York breeds everything fashion. But so does California. My designs are a fusion of two styles into one — it’s like mixing peanut butter and jelly but I also love being experimental like adding cranberry juice to my ginger ale…” – All Day Kreative, Crystal Tolentino
Eating snacks is cool and all but what about dinner?
I’m currently on Day 3 of “Lockdown” and Trump announced this morning that drugs used to treat malaria and severe arthritis, were approved by the Food and Drug Administration to test as a COVID-19 coronavirus treatment. We’ll see how that goes. I’ve been struggling to adjust to this new lifestyle and it’s tough staying indoors all day especially when you’re a naturally outgoing person.
Anyway, I went to the grocery store yesterday and I noticed that chicken seemed to be popular during quarantine since the poultry section was cleared out. So I walked over to the beef section instead — low and behold, I found a small pack of drumsticks waiting for me next to the ground beef. Score! I grabbed the pack of chicken and a few other things then checked out as fast as I could. The store wasn’t as crowded but it was apparent that people didn’t understand what social distancing meant.
Fast forward, I want to share an easy marinade recipe with you. You can use chicken thighs or chicken drumsticks. But like I said in my previous post, I am not a fancy chef nor did I go to culinary school. Growing up with two younger brothers, I had to learn how to cook so I could feed my brother and myself while my parents were at work or out “gallivanting”.
This recipe is for 5 large chicken drumsticks. I know, I know…this was all I could find at the grocery store.
Honey Garlic Marinade
- 5 Chicken thighs or 5 Large Chicken Drumsticks
- 3 cloves of garlic — chopped
- 1/4 cup of vinegar, I used Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/4 cup of soy sauce
- 3 tbsp of honey
- 1/8 cup of water
- Ground pepper (optional)
Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix.
Add the chicken, cover up the bowl, place it in your refrigerator and allow it to marinate for 30 minutes to an hour. I normally marinate my chicken for more than an hour. It’s up to you.
And there you go, a quick and simple marinade for chicken. After it’s done marinating, remove the chicken from the bowl and discard the liquid. You can either grill the chicken or bake it. If you choose to bake it, place the marinated chicken in an oven safe baking pan or glass baking dish at 350 degrees for an hour.
I find this recipe helpful to people that normally don’t cook at home. Be safe out there!
