To My Uncle Larry..... Pt 5

Well Uncle Larry, your Foreskins got one today.

My hat is off to you.

I have to admit Washington came into this game ready.

They were determined to win.

I can't be mad at that.

My Cowboys on the other hand looked liked shit.

But oh well.

They are Division Champs.

They do have a first round bye.

They also have home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

So, they played this game exactly how they should have. It was a meaningless game played against a meaningless team.

Until next year Unc.

Be advised.... If the 'Boys make it to the Superbowl, I will be coming to Maryland for the Superbowl party that my Aunty (your wife) said she was going to throw. So I expect a huge rendition of Hail to the Cowboys the minute I step off the plane at BWI.

But if they don't make it that far, they still got further than your Foreskins!!!!

How 'bout them Cowboys!!!

10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 Happy New Year!!!!!


Well another year has come and gone. My Grandma told me once that the older you get, the faster time flies.


Ain't that the damn truth?


I guess it is time for me to make some resolutions for the upcoming year.


So here goes my resolutions.


I would like to get to the gym more, because my midsection is not what it was a year ago. But we will have to see what my work schedule looks like. I would like to go back to school and work on my Masters this year, but again I have to see what my work schedule looks like. I also would like to finish the book I started to write 6 months ago. (I only have written maybe a half chapter so far), but again it depends on my work schedule.


If yall have not noticed a pattern in this post yet, I think maybe I should come on out with it. I pattern my whole life around my job, or trying to find another job that is better than my current job . (My current position is just that, a "job". Even though I have been doing it for the past 5 years. I really don't have a career. Yet.)


I still thank the lord up high every morning for my "job", because it is paying my bills, and keeping my head above water. But I feel that it is time for me to change directions. I am a very smart young man. I have been reading and writing since the tender age of 3, thanks to my moms starting me out early. I even skipped 1st grade and went straight to 2nd. So there is no limit to what I can accomplish if I am in the right situation. So far I don't think that I have been in the right situation. I have made a lot of very stupid mistakes that has kept me away from the right situation.
But hey, I might be smart,but I am also very human.


I have a few ideas on where I were I want to be. I have a few ideas on how I am going to get there. But as of this moment all I have are ideas.


My resolution for the upcoming year is not to get rich. I don't want to be rich. I would like to be comfortable. My resolution for this year is not to kill myself in the gym to get a body like a pro football player. I no longer have a 6 pack, but from the looks I get from the ladies every time I step out... well... let me stop right there. (I am still happily married. I love you Baby!!) Back on subject.


My resolution for this year does not include something outrageous like climbing Mt Everest, or sky diving, swimming the English Channel or bungee jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge.


My resolutions for 2008 are pretty simple.


I am going to try to be a better man. I am going to try to get that career that I deserve. I am going to try to limit the mistakes I make that are keeping the right doors locked that I need opened to start that career. I am going to try to enjoy the life that God has blessed me with, instead of bitching about the life that I wish I had. I also am going to start seeing the beauty of the world around me instead of focusing on the negatives.


I am also going to take the advice of Tina Turner and Maya Angelou, (see my sidebar on Inspirational Qoutes by Inspirational People).


All of my resolutions for this upcoming year are not that far fetched. I think I can accomplish everything I resolve to do in 2008.

But if I fail on something, there is always 2009.


God willing.


Happy New Year to all the people out there in the blog-o-sphere that read my thoughts.

I just hope that it is a Happy New Year, for the whole year.

The Bush Legacy....What?!

What will the Bush Legacy be? How will America remember it's 43rd president? Ed Henry, a journalist on CNN.com asked this question in his article about Jr.'s last year in the big seat in the big office in the big white house on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I guess that depends on who you ask. But if I were asked, I don't think Jr. and the people pictured in the above illustration would like what I had to say.

Why you may ask?

Where do I begin?

Well, Dirty Red how about at the beginning?

O.K.

1. The 2000 elections.
The majority of America voted for Al Gore. But thanks to Jr's brother down in Florida, and the United States Supreme Court, Jr. was crowned king of America. This became known in all "hoods" in America as the biggest jack move known to man. The only man in U.S. HIS-story to jack a whole damn country.

2. 911.
Do I blame Jr. for the towers falling? No!! There are a lot of conspiracy nuts out there that will disagree with me, but I don't think the White House had anything to do with it.
I do think that his reaction on that day was very strange. He could have showed a little more emotion to me. I don't like how he let the Saudis fly out of the country when Americans where grounded and stuck like chuck at every airport in the country.

3. The war in Afghanistan.
To me this war was justified. If the reports were correct, Bin Laden is guilty as hell. But again, if the reports were correct.

4. The war in Iraq.
A total fabrication and lie from the beginning to now. I don't think I need to say any more on that subject.

5. The wire tapping of American Citizens.
Well, I believe that this has been going on since J. Edgar Hoover was diddling with little boys. But at least the government had the decency to keep it somewhat hidden. In comes Jr., and what was the best known secret in Washington, became the the most known blunder in Washington.

6.Hurricane Katrina.
Just the name says it all.

7. Alberto Gonzales.
I don't have enough room on this page to start on this guy.

8. Dick Cheney
I believe that he shot someone in the face, and the man that he shot apologized to him for being in the path of the shotgun that was used to shoot him. Now that is definitely Gangsta!

9. Donald Rumsfield
The "architect" of the Iraq mess.

10. Now this has nothing to do with Jr., but it did happen on his watch.
All the Republican scandals. Which one do I start with?

11.Karl Rove
The genius behind Jr.'s political successes.

12. Haliburton and Blackwater
Billions of dollars have gone to these companies and for what?

I can go on and on and on.
So what should his legacy be?
Is this the type of President that all of Americans can be proud of?

What has this President did to benefit the people that put him in office?

Who has he helped?

Hmmmm...

People are losing their homes at an alarming rate due to sub-prime mortgages given out by crooked mortage companies looking for a profit.
The American education system is a joke.
Gas prices are through the roof.
Insurance companies are scamming people left and right.
More companies are getting U.S. tax breaks to move their operations overseas.
The lie that is Iraq is costing U.S. taxpayers a whooping $4,000,000,000,000 (that is billion with a B) a month.
Our biggest trading partner China is sending us poisoned goods.
The United States no longer has a good foreign standing.
And last but not least the United States is so far in debt that Jr. is asking other countries to buy some of our debt!!
All of this and more has happened on the current President's watch.

So how will HIS-story write Jr.'s legacy?

Is it right to blame one man for all the problems that America is faced with today?

No, I don't think that is fair.

However, if a sports team has a losing season, then the coach that was supposed to be the leader of the team gets the blame and he losses his job.
There are no glowing reports on what went right(if anything did go right since the team did have a losing season) while the coach was in charge. The players don't get the blame of why the season went down the toilet. There are no ceremonies. There is a press conference and the ex-coach gives a speech and apologizes to the fans for letting them down and he thanks the owner for the opportunity to lead his organization and he leaves with no fan-fare. (He is usually escorted off the teams property under guard).

So do you think we will get an apology from our current "coach"? Do you think he will apologize for letting all of us down? Do you think he will thank us for giving him the opportunity to lead our "team?"

Well, I would not hold my breath waiting and neither should anyone else.

Don't believe the Hype!!!


There is a gigantic misconception going around AmeriKKKa these days that is meant to demean and degrade the way the world sees Black Men. This misconception is that there are more Black Men in prison than in college. Well, this is as my wife's late great Aunt used to say, "a black-ass lie".
The main people spreading this rumor is the Amerikkkan media.
I always thought that the Amerikkkan media started this rumor. So I refused to believe what was being broadcast on CNN and Faux News 24 hours a day.
Until I heard a sound bite from presidential hopeful John Edwards. He was going on about how poverty needs to be addressed in this country and how this is the main problem for all the crime in the good 'ole US of A. Well, it doesn't take a scientist on the government's payroll to see that. To me that is common sense. If I need money to feed my family and keep a roof over my head, and I can't find a job that pays enough to do that, well... you know what comes next.
I am not saying that I condone doing anything illegal, but I understand what would drive someone to it. Whoever said money is not everything, has never been broke.
Anyway, Mr Edwards starts talking about how the Black Man is facing extinction in this country. He says the now famous line that "there are more black men in prison than in college".
Well I started thinking about that, so I decided to do a little research. This is what I found. this is an article that was written by Michael Dobbs from the Washington Post.
"According to 2005 Census Bureau statistics, the male African-American population of the United States aged between 18 and 24 numbered 1,896,000. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 106,000 African-Americans in this age group were in federal or state prisons at the end of 2005. See table 10 of this report. If you add the numbers in local jail (measured in mid-2006), you arrive at a grand total of 193,000 incarcerated young Black males, or slightly over 10 percent.
According to the same census data, 530,000 of these African-American males, or twenty eight percent, were enrolled in colleges or universities (including two-year-colleges) in 2005. That is five times the number of young black men in federal and state prisons and two and a half times the total number incarcerated. If you expanded the age group to include African-American males up to thirty or thirty five, the college attendees would still outnumber the prisoners.
"
So, I got to thinking.
If I can find this information in about 30 minutes by using Google, why can't a United States Presidential hopeful, with millions of dollars in his coffers and thousands of people on his payroll find this same information?
But wait it gets better. Here is another article I found by using Google. This is posted on a site called Infoplease.
Education
80% Among blacks
age 25 and older, the proportion that had at least a high school diploma in 2005. In states such as Colorado, the proportion was even higher—90%.
17%Percentage of blacks age 25 and older who had a bachelor’s degree or more in 2005. In many states, the rate was higher. Twenty-six percent of blacks this age in Colorado, for instance, had this level of education.
1.1 million Among blacks age 25 and older, the number who had an advanced degree in 2005 (e.g., master’s, Ph.D., M.D. or J.D.). Ten years earlier—in 1995—only 677,000 blacks had this level of education.
2.3 million Number of black college students in fall 2004. This was an increase of roughly 1 million from 15 years earlier.
So....
Where is Senator Edwards and all the other socially conscious people in this country getting their information?
I think I can answer that.....
Faux News, CNN, MSNBC, and all the other "news"outlets. In other words, The Amerikkkan Media!!!
I know that the number of Black Men in prison is staggering. Black Men do outnumber all other races in prison. It is a problem within our communities and our "Justice" (or is it the Just-Us) Department, and it needs to be addressed. But why fudge the numbers? What is to be gained by lying? If you were white in this country, and you heard a honorable ex Senator and Presidential Hopeful make a claim like that, what would you think?
You would probably cross the street if you saw 2 or 3 young black men coming towards you. You would lock your car doors if you happen to drive through a black neighborhood. You would design a T-shirt with the logo of a Black Baby with the comment under the picture, "Lock up all black babies, before they grow up to be criminals." (remember that from a few years ago?) You would disown your daughter if she brought a Black Man home to meet you. You would blame a Black Man for kidnapping and killing your kids to cover up your own crime.
Do I need to give anymore examples?
I said it once before on one of my first posts when I started this blog.
The AmeriKKKan media is a Black Mans biggest enemy.
And I think that I have proved my point.

Habla Espanol?


This shit here really pissed me off. Don't get me wrong this is not going to be a racial rant. This is going to be a political rant.
So brace yourselves....
The Rethuglicans hosted a debate on the Spanish T.V. network Uni vision the other night. There is nothing wrong with that. Spanish speaking people are rapidly becoming the majority. Their main topic was illegal immigration. Again nothing wrong with that. Illegal immigration is a very hot topic now a days. I guess the Rethuglicans felt they need to pander to the Hispanic population. Again, there is nothing wrong with that. In the immortal words of Too Short, "Get in Where You Fit In".
What got me upset with this whole Spanish Debate thing was this......
How many times have these assholes refused to address or even attend a debate , function, dinner, car-wash, or lemon aid stand that was sponsored by somebody black?
How many times has the NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, Urban League and any other black themed organization asked these motherfuckers to come and sit down with them and talk about issues that concern Black Americans? How many times has the tired excuse of 'scheduling conflicts' been given?
But now all of a sudden these bastards can go on a network that is specifically targeted towards the Hispanic population and debate in a language that not one of these fake motherfuckers speak?
Am I the only one of the 36 million blacks in this country to get offended at that?
Where the majority of us (blacks)not born here?
Don't all of us speak English?
So what the fuck is the problem, Mit "I believe In Jesus" Romney?
Does my vote not count Rudy "Save the World from Terrorists" Giuliani?
What about you, Pastor Reverend Doctor Huckaby?
I guess that my vote is not important to you, huh, John "POW" McCain?
And you, Fred "Law and Order"Thompson, I actually liked you, but I guess I was getting your TV persona mixed up with the real you. Or was I?
But I guess my people have not been through enough in this country for all of you to realize that we are still here. Or is that the problem? We are still here. All 36 million of us. And we are not going anywhere.
So to all my brothers and sisters that vote Rethuglican.....
I really think you need to rethink your loyalties.
I am not endorsing the Dumocrats, but hey, at least they do talk a good game and put on a good show for those of us out here struggling in these fields.

Now Hiring Young Black Males. See Your Local Grand Wizard for information!


I was reading a post that Jason Whitlock wrote about the Sean Taylor murder tonight, and I actually agreed with him. He said that Mr. Taylor was killed by the Black KKK. This might sound ridiculous to some, but it is true. Blacks have killed more Blacks in the past 30 or 40 years than the KKK did in it's entire sad history. We are exterminating ourselves at an alarming rate, and no one seems to care. There really is no need for a white KKK any more, because young black males have taken the black KKK to a whole new level.
Example # 1 ....
A childhood friend of mine was killed 2 weeks ago by a "number 1 male". ( number 1 male is a slang "politically correct"term for young black male that the police in Baltimore use)He was shot in the face close range by a 16 year old, while his two partners (17 and 19 years old) watched. My friend was 34 years old. He was married with 3 kids.
Example # 2 ....
A couple of weeks ago at a strip mall here in Dallas, 2 "number 1 males" were video taped shooting at each other in between some clothes racks. Of course they missed each other, but they did manage to hit and kill an innocent bystander.
Example # 3 ....
A minister was at a corner gas station in a suburb of Dallas when he saw a "number 1 male" going into the store with his pants down around his knees. The minister approached the guy, and told him to pull his damn pants up. The "number 1 male" proceeded to pull out a gun, cock it and aim at the minister. The only thing that saved the minister's life was a car pulled into the parking lot. I guess the young monster didn't want any witnesses, so he got in a car, (with 3 other "number 1 males") and sped out of the parking lot. According to witnesses all the occupants of the car, including the gunman were in their teens.
This is only 3 examples of the thousands that can be talked about every day.
I have no idea why young black males hate each other this way. Hate is the only word that can describe this inhuman behavior. What is it about being black that cause people (including ourselves)to hate us so much? You know it is bad when you hate yourself so much that you want to kill anyone that reminds you of you.
Is it the poison that is being passed off as rap music?
Is it the "mindless entertainment" that is being passed off as video games?
Is it the violence that is being shown in theatres, or on TV?
Is it the history of discrimination this country is known for?
Or is it bad parenting?
Or maybe it is a combination of all of the above.
Can we really get mad at a white person that crosses the street if a group of "number 1 males" are approaching him/her?
Am I wrong for getting a little nervous when I go into the "hood"?
Why is it that our black "leaders" can stage a protest outside the justice department, but they say nothing about the violence on the streets of our neighborhoods? Why do they raise hell when a white person says the word nigger, and demand loudly that an apology be given, but they stay sinfully quiet when a 16 year old kills another 16 year old 10 blocks from the " rally" they held at the justice department?
If you kill the male in any species, the species dies.
That is what is happening here in AmeriKKKa.
Young Black Males are killing each other for no reason other than hate. This is exactly what the "original" KKK was doing to black males 60 or 70 years ago.
I think that the "original" KKK should hold their next rally in Harlem. Their membership would probably triple. Black males are already killing each other for nothing. So why not give them a cause?
Maybe the "original" KKK can go to the HSBC's and start their own Greek Chapter. At least then the killing would be sanctioned and controlled.
