The Difference Between Rev Martin Luther King Jr and Barack Hussein Obama

One man served as a humble servant of the people and this nation. The other thinks he’s the king of humbled servants, this nation, and the world.

Decepticons: The Jason Collins Story and Wasting Years of Your Life Waiting on Him

Long-winded title, but hoping you get the point. Maybe you’ve heard about it. Maybe you’ve been blissfully unaware of the hullabaloo that’s dominated the mainstream media for a couple of days. See, what happened is an NBA baller (snicker) earned his 15 minutes of fame by declaring that he is – wait for it – wait for […]

What Kind of Black Woman Are You?

I thoroughly enjoyed the following comment by Stacey, so I decided to make it a post. By the way, the post title is a general question, not aimed specifically at Stacey. The following continues the discussion originating in the Black Actress Review: Just Wright – Big Boned Gurl Gets Good Guy Balla post. Stacey says: Ok, I must […]

Wayne Brady vs Bill Maher: How a Good Brotha Fights A Bad White Man

He does it by talking about the black women (of questionable repute) that the “bad white man” dates. Say What? Apparently, Wayne Brady (WB) got plenty tired of Bill Maher (BM) using his name to lament President Obama not being hardcore or thuggish enough to suit him. Perhaps both should search YouTube for that video […]

Media Watch: Black Women and The Blind Side

I sorta liked this movie. Yet, I was also disturbed by it. I happen to like Sandra Bullock, even though her taste in men is dreadful. 🙂 So my criticism is of the film itself, and not her as an actress. Also, I’ve learned not to expect anything meaningful from Hollywood, especially with movies including […]

Tips for Today’s Negroes: A Lesson in Manners

Who’s Your Daddy? Yeah, yeah, I know a lot of you did not have Fathers to teach you how to be a gentleman. And the likelihood is high that your Mothers probably didn’t have the time, inclination, or interest in teaching any of y’all manners. Maybe everybody thought that lil man ShayQuan being rude and […]

NSFW: Dave Chapelle – Black Bush

Prescient. And rather hilarious. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Long Version Short Version Short Version   “The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.” Barack Obama, 2007.

The Next Disaster: Will It Be Us?

Does tragedy come in threes? fours? a score or more? I am certainly not wishing for it. I’ve been briefly taking in the news on Japan, because I don’t want to take it up to “disaster porn” level. I’m hoping that the Nuke Reactors get under control, and nothing worse happens. Are You Ready For […]

Tears of a Clown: Keith Ellison’s Manhood Goes on Sale

Remember back when John F. Kennedy swore that the Pope didn’t make his decisions for him? (On September 12, 1960, he said, “I am not the Catholic candidate for President. I am the Democratic Party’s candidate for President who also happens to be a Catholic. I do not speak for my Church on public matters […]

Rape of Young Black Girls: Do We Ever Learn Anything From These Stories?

I would like to know. Frankly, I’m sick of knowing about these stories.* The reason is my feelings about what should happen to the perpetrators would fall under extreme cruel and unusual punishment. I’m all for sterilization, hangings, the electric chair, and putting the criminals to sleep like any animal that needs to be put […]

I Have to Support President Obama, Because He’s a Black Man

At least, according to Miss Jina: @Blog author and Bellydancer WOW..You are on here saying what has Obama done nothing for you? Wow..What the f*** did the other forty or so white presidents do for you? This is why black people can’t get ahead. Some people in the group always want to tear each other […]

To The Black Women Who Defend Barack Obama (or Any Black Male)

Shellacking November 2nd was a shocker wasn’t it? Wow, that was some election. Where did all the progressives and liberals go? Are they only in California, Connecticut, Delaware, and New York? I know a lot of you think that the sole and most important reason for the Republican and Tea Party takeover of the House […]

Rant: I Need My Own Cyrano De Bergerac

Granted, I can be a decent writer when I’m angry or in an especially good mood. I think my writing is even superb when I work at it. But I’m thinking there’s something off when I write a personal ad or even a resume. It’s odd how I put those two together, but they both […]

For Black Women: When Your Choices Make Other People Or Your “Friends” Mad

The following comment, and question, was sent to me by the intelligent and lovely Chocolatestar: I wanted to send you this video and get your thoughts on this. I’m not sure if it’s just me and my strong opinionated personality, but i’m quite tired of black women bashing other black women, who call black men […]

Braindump Thursday: It’s June Already?

Goal Setting I feel like I am behind the curve, or far from the goal posts. I always have a couple of goals I want to achieve, but I’m not even half way there, and half the year is almost gone! Tweets I signed up for Twitter.com, although for the life of me, I still […]

Tis the Season: Monday Random Thoughts

I love, and hate, this time of year. I actually like the cold weather, although the cold weather may not like me. I’m pleased to limit my personal exposure to this seasonal emphasis of, “Be Happy! Be Happy! Spend! Spend! Spend! Until you don’t have a nickel to lend!” Consumerism does not enrich the spirit, […]

Cynicism

Cynicism is not a sign of intelligence, sophistication, a necessity, or a useful adherence to something called “keepin’ it real.” All creatures with a smidgen of gray matter learn from painful mistakes. Among primates learning comes from doing and watching. Human are able to learn from listening, reading, watching, and doing. They can retain a […]
