One of the biggest issues when it comes to the perception of Americans is that we come off as obliviously arrogant. If it has nothing to do with our issues, we have a tendency to not care. Also, we will blindly disagree with something to the point of self-loathing and parody levels of ignorance. […]
As I begin this 52 book journey, I knew I had to start off with something interesting. So, picking up the book Blockbusters was a win/win. For one, I would be reading something informational about entertainment. Another reason is that I would get an informed opinion about business decisions I didn’t always necessarily agree […]
Recently, within the “Twittersphere”, Azealia Banks rolled through her usual antics of saying stuff filled with controversy. However, this time was a little different. Instead of saying something to “make herself look like a child”, she went for the “pseudo educational commentary on society” angle. With what she said, she would have been correct if […]
I don’t know why I do this to myself. Wait, I lied: I do it for you all. I do it for the “fans” that I imagine I have. I also do it for the sake of doing it. This pays no money. Most people don’t pay me any mind. But for those that […]
The Trayvon Martin case has left a polarizing atmosphere within the conscience of America. On one side, you have demands for justice (especially in Florida). On the other hand, you have issues with personal responsibility within the Black community. Both issues are quite important and seemingly can’t fully mesh in order to bring any […]
As usual, I take some of Diggame’s questions and answer them. Nothing more. Nothing less. He brings up great rhetorical questions. I just think that they shouldn’t be so rhetorical. And that is where the fun starts!!!
1.) Will America have a real discussion about racism or just talk around it?
At what point in our […]
George Zimmerman was found not guilty.
On one hand, this doesn’t shock me one bit. The fact that this case even went to trial for so long kind of led me to believe that Zimmerman would get off easy. The prosecution team did spotty at best. Some of the witnesses for Trayvon were off to […]
Judge me if you want to, but this song does the job for me. The production is on that computerized madness. The topic: technology and the female. The bigger issue: there was a concern with how technology disrupts the connection between people. Or, you can consider how people are mindwarped by technology’s uses. Whatever […]
“Ooooooo, Paula Deen used the word nigger!” many people have said as I work my way through Twitter and Facebook so I can increase my time of snappy put downs and unadulterated slander. I was too busy trying to avoid this conversation. Yet, all I kept hearing (and keep hearing) about is Paula Deen […]
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 […]
