Why are there so many different divisions of Black Folk? I'm in Atlanta,

GA, yet all over the country, there are certain “divisions” of Black Folk.

You have the metaphysical/spiritual/occult community, you have the

black conscious (angry) community, you have the "esquires," “the

graduates,” and “suma cum lawdees” of the HBCUs and more well

known to society, Universities. You have the commercial community

who just go any way the wind blows, can't wait till Friday, praise Jesus

on Sunday, Goddammit it's Monday community. You got the dressen’

like the rappers on Bet, really Bout Dat Life community. You have the

entrepreneurs who figured it out (money 💵)community. You also have

a combination of these elements within the various income levels of

lower class, middle class and upper middle class.

I do not even bother to include the “wealthy” of the Black Folk”

because I have yet to read or see a video or see with my own eyes, any

member of the generational Black wealthy class, make themselves

known in a very visible and substantial way that has a meaningful and

long lasting impact within the Black community. A recreation center,

which seems to be a common contribution or tax write off, for the

most part, only provides a place that caters to only athletic pursuits

and not the economic, entrepreneurial, spiritual, academic and healthy

well being of the surrounding neighborhood and is not doing much.

Taking money for your physical presence and not offering the above,

let alone a job that can take you above a check to check existence is

not worth much…hmmm… kind of like what the local


Yet, as I originally stated, none of these communities have ever worked

together. If they have, I do not know about it and I seriously doubt they

work together know. What's up with that...(crickets)



Jassiri Nassor


Welcome to Thought Elevation Ola, a starting place for the seeker of the deeper questions of life and the serious self evaluator. My name is Jassiri Nassor. I am a Spiritual/Reality based Thinker and Creative Writer. I specialize in higher level thought. I enjoy helping myself and assisting individuals connect life's dots through the sciences of Metaphysics, Occultism, Common Sense, and Unadulterated NERVE. Over the past six years my study of the aforementioned systems have helped me tremendously in my personal growth and understanding of myself and the world around me. 

The purpose of this blog is to share my personal stories and insights on daily life in a manner that is relatable and based on the FACT that changing the world is irrelevant until you first change YOURSELF. Acknowledging and conquering the negative features of yourself and your flaws is the ultimate victory. Most people need inspiration to do such a thing, well... you have found the right place. I have found that a well rounded person is balanced in the areas of Mental, Spiritual, Physical and Financial pursuits. I do not have all of the answers , yet I share what I have learned on my personal exploration. Through my sharing, I am sure we can find common ground.

Though we are seeking answers together, it doesn't have to be always serious. Laughter and just being a plain smart ass is good medicine for the soul. TRUTH is a excellent truth serum as well. I usually publish new blog post two times per week and I always deliver content to make you think and laugh. Thus, if you do not mind getting a smile on your face and top grade gas in your tank, sign up for the latest blog post and updates on myself Jassiri Nassor and Thought Elevation Ola.
