The Jeremy Lin Show

NBA: Same Ol’ Same Ol’ It has been years since I’ve followed sports, basketball in particular. I watched the Knicks when Ewing played for them, that’s how long ago it’s been. And if you want to know how out of it I was, I’ve never watched Michael Jordan play. I’ve never tuned into his games. […]

I like Queen Latifah (Dana Owens), so I am willing to sit down and watch her movie(s). Long Descriptions Ahead Did I like Just Wright? To be honest, I dunno.

For Black Women: Please Have Sex With White Men

That got your attention, didn’t it? Apparently, my old, old post Why White Men are a Better Choice was interpreted (by the mentally handicapped and functionally illiterate) as a heartfelt plea for black women everywhere to sex it up with all the nearest and available white men.
