Wondering where this blog came from? What is it’s purpose? What in the world does intellution (hint, it’s in the title of this inaugural post) even mean? Well this is where I outline the exact purpose of this blog…which is nothing different from any other blog, considering that it is a collection of opinion pieces and commentary on any and everything in this world of ours. But first, what’s in a name?
The basic idea of the blog is to discuss any and everything while infusing our intellect and humor, similar to when we were all roommates back at the greatest HBCU to have every existed, Xavier University of Louisiana. The idea of a revolution stuck out the most to me. Not necessarily in the militant black man sense, but more so encouraging our readers to think freely, not bound by the constraints of what society tells you to think. And we will do this through any means necessary, because we didn’t land on Plymouth Rock, Plymouth Rock landed on US! Uh…sorry, got a tad bit carried away.
The idea of the name came from talking with Supreme Soul and The Audacity of Dope! (exclamation mark is apart of the name), but it wasn’t the first name to come up. Courtesy of Dope!, here are a few of his suggestions: n*ggaplease.com, toocoolforschool.com, with the title being “Too Cool for School, but my mama made me go anyway,” and phatblacknatgeo.com (Phat Black National Geographic). Needless to say, the good Lord blessed Soul and myself with the common sense to always question whatever Dope! has to say at any given moment. However, with their help (more so Soul’s than Dope!’s as you can see from his suggestions), theintellution.com was born. If it wasn’t obvious, the site’s name is an amalgam of The Intellectual Revolution.
So that is a brief history of the site’s conception. We hope y’all enjoy the site and comment often! Viva La Revolucion!!!
