I knew this situation was coming. I knew I would get into a circumstance where I feel the inspiration to acknowledge some madness that I have seen on the internet. I know that many people felt a certain way about race and race relations. I also figured that there would be more people out […]

Too Close to Home: The Dangerous Epidemic of Date Rape Drug Usage

When women took offense to Rick Ross’s lyric about spiking drinks with drugs, some thought they were overreacting. To be honest, it IS a rap lyric. However, for many people it is a reality that is all too real and scary as all hell. Many of us don’t think that we are even close […]

Take the Time to Realize You Love Someone – Plain Truth 98

 

Sometimes, there are situations where your significant other seems to be “trippin’ out”. Maybe they aren’t acknowledging the obvious. Or, maybe you aren’t realizing the truth of the situation.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is an Igbo author that has written a few books in her time. A few months back, she did a TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) talk recently.

Tommy Sotomayor Sounds Bitter!!!

As I peruse around Facebook (half sleep from a long work week), I am introduced to a video by Tommy Sotomayor. Tommy is an Atlanta radio host known for his controversial views.

Oral Sex is Performed by Men: Three Reasons

Now, whether or not you agree with the subject matter of this song is up to you. Yet, one must agree that this song rung alarms on the radio in the late 90’s. The clubs fell in love with it due to its addictive chorus and highly potent sexual content. Although it covered risqué […]

Men That Do Not Know What They Want Out Of Life – CCL 74

Growing up, my father made sure that I did things in his image of “being a man”. Whether it was “taking care of family” to “paying your bills on time”, he was particular about what he felt men were responsible for. Even when it came to relationships, he has a few ground rules. Things […]
