Gay people have the right to be misarable just like everyone else


This was a historic week here in the Good ole US of A.

Well, it was a historic week in California.
Gay people can now get married in the Golden State!!

Hoorah!

Somebody please wake me up and tell me that this is a dream.

I never thought I would see the day here in this country with all the "Jesus freaks" in Congress, that 2 people that happen to be of the same sex and that happen to love one another, could publicly and legally share their love with the world for all to see.

I mean everyone knows that marriage is supposed to be between a man and a woman.
Ain't that what the bible says?

Was this Great country not founded on what the Bible says?

Does "In God We Trust" ring any bells with anyone?

Americans all believe that marriage is sacred, right?

I mean if our "leaders" did not think that Marriage is sacred, would Congress allow T.V. shows like The Bachelor, Who wants to marry a millionaire, The Flavor of Love or the new show that came on tonight, Swing Town?

If our "leaders" thought that marriage was so sacred would Congress allow so many divorces every year?

If our "leaders" are so against Gay Love, why have they not put a stop to all the Catholic Priests that have been caught molesting little boys?

I mean they can put a stop to steroids in baseball, but they cannot stop something that goes against the very grain of what this great country was founded on?

I am a firm believer in the Bible. I believe in God with everything I am. I also believe that a person (or country)should not compromise it's beliefs for anyone or anything.
How can you take anyone or (any country) seriously that constantly shows the world how hypocritical it is?

I have no problem with Gay people getting married. They deserve all the happiness that everyone else in the world takes for granted. I cannot judge anyone, God is the only and the final Judge. I know what I believe and what I will allow in my life, and I refuse to compromise what I believe and what I hold dear. But this is only me. When my time comes to account for all my sins, I will only be held accountable for my sins, not my neighbors sins.

So I hope that every couple that exchanged vows this past week has a lasting and love filled marriage.

Besides, the way the world is now a days, a person should take any type of love and happiness they can get.

That being said, I personally think that my country should grow a pair and either change the constitution all together to fit today's world, or live by what they say they hold so sacred.

A Tribute to Charles King

This post is a little late because I had to get my mind right before I wrote it.

This past weekend was Father's Day weekend. This Holiday never really meant much to me because I did not have a real conversation with my father until I was 28 years old.

He was never around.
It was not all on him though. My Mom and my Father never had a healthy relationship. I must admit that he did try to be active in my life over my younger years, but my Mom always blocked him. So to be blunt, my Mom denied me the joy of having a Father. So my Pops was not a dead-beat Dad per-say, he just didn't have the balls to stand up to my Mother.

Anyways...
I finally grew a set of balls of my own and contacted him through one of my Aunty's and I flew out to North Carolina to see him. The resemblance was striking. The only difference was that I am about 2 inches taller than him. After that initial get together, we talked on the phone all the time and whenever I could, I would fly out to North Cacalac to see him.

He was a cool dude.

A lot like me.

My father died from complications from diabetes late last year.

The pain of that is still... well it hurts.

Like Hell.

I miss my father terribly. I tried to cram 28 years into the past 6 or 7, and I don't think I did it. He never let on how sick he was. He never told me anything about his illness. Every time we talked he was always up-beat and laughing, and threatening to disown me if I did not hurry up and give him a grandson.

After 28 years of not having a father in my life, I finally had a Father and a friend.

Charles King was my Father.

Charles King was my Homie.

Charles King was my Dude.

He never got to see his grand-child since I have not had a child yet,(I think I am the oldest living straight Black-Man in America with no kids. But Wifey and I are still trying.)
I have to be a father.Even if we have to adopt, I WILL get the satisfaction of knowing that I had a positive impact on a child's life.

So this is to all the Charles Kings in America. He was living proof that not all Black Men leave their children.

He maybe showed up late in my life, but he was right on time.

Gas or Food? Which one Today?


As I have stated on my blog before, I live in a suburb about 15 minutes south of downtown Dallas, Tx. My job is about 18 miles north of downtown. So I am driving about 33 miles 1 way to work everyday. As with the rest of America I am feeling the pain every time I go to fuel up my truck. Well I was feeling the pain, I am in the market for a new vehicle now because my truck was stolen 2 weeks ago. Right out of my fucking driveway! But that is a subject for another post.

Anyways....

There are about 6 or 7 (give or take a couple) gas stations within a 3 mile radius of my neighborhood. There is a Min-yards market fuel stop, 2 Exxons, 3 Chevrons, and 2 SuperWal-Marts. Every one of these gas stations have different prices. Even the two Wal-Marts.

FYI...
Do not go to a Wal-Mart to get gas. Their gas is always cheaper than everyone else, but you get what you pay for, ya dig?

Here is my problem...

How in the hell can all these different places have different prices even though they are the same damn company? Every one of the Chevrons have different prices for their whip juice, even though 2 of them are right beside each other! It is the same with the Exxons. The Wal-Marts have a little distance between them, but the prices are still different.

Now this is just my opinion, but even though I am sure that each of these establishments are owned by somebody different, they still operate under the same flag. So should it not be company policy that if you operate under let's say... Exxon, your prices should be the same as all the other Exxons? Is that not good business?

Is this not an example of price gauging?

I can go to any Wal-Mart in the country, and if I want to buy a 6 pack of socks, the socks will be the same price no matter what Wal-Mart I am in. Believe me, I have checked. I should buy stock in Wally-World I am in one so much.

So what is the difference with gas?

How can my government explain this to me? Is there not some sort of Government regulation that covers this? How can these big-wig oil executives fix their mouths to say that they do not engage in price gauging, when the evidence is right there for everyone with a vehicle to see?

Well, I guess that is enough bitching for now. I mean what will it change?
I have to drive to get to work. I have to drive to get food. I have to drive to do anything, since the DART (DALLAS AREA RAPID TRANSIT)does not come out here where I live.

This is one of the biggest reasons I miss the East. I would not drive at all if I was back home. I would be on the Metro everyday with a big smile on my face.

But ol well...

Which Chevron will it be today?

The $ 3.98 one or the $ 3.96 one?

Another Black Girl Thrown Under the Bus


R-Kelly.
The Pied Piper of R&B.
The self proclaimed King of R&B.
Kells.

I don't know about the rest of you out there in Blog-land, but I am kind of upset right now.

The jury in this Negro's child-rape case had the nerve to acquit this motherfucker. He is on a tape of his own making having sex with a girl that is obviously under the age of 18, doing stuff to this girl that the good working class folks in West Virginia would not do to their own cousins, and at the end of this tape of his own making,he does the ultimate act of disrespect...He urinates on the girl.

The jury was privy to all this sick shit. They saw the tape. The only defense that this negro had was, "IT WAS NOT ME".

Give me a fucking break!!

Stevie Wonder saw the tape and he said 'yep that IS that nigga'. And this Jury could not see that?

Let me flip the script the only way that I can. Yes, I am going to turn this into a Black, White thing, that is what I do.

Let's say that 'ole Kells directed a tape of him having sex with 14 year old Becky White. Lets say that in this production of child porn, Mr. Pied Piper of R&B had the nerve to stick his head in between young Ms. Whites butt-checks, and commences to move his head around like he was at a state fair bobbing for apples. Let's say that in this sick amateur film The King of R&B had his penis lodged in young massa Becky's mouth. And then at the end of this masterpiece Mr. "You remind me of my Jeep", climaxes all over Becky's back, turns her over and then urinates in her face.

What would you think that America would say once this tape got out?

Why was Black America not enraged over this?

Millions of my "brothers and sisters" still support this sick, twisted motherfucker.
They were all at the court house offering support to this NIGGA.

Now don't get me twisted, this is not all on "Mr.Hair Braider".
The tape does not show any evidence of rape. It was consensual. This was not the first time that this little slut did this.

In the tape she looked like she was enjoying it... but anyways, that is not the point.

The point I am trying to make, is that a Black life (male or female)has less value than a white life here in the good ole US of A.

Even some of my own "brothers and sisters" feel this way. If they did not, this sick pedophile would be on his way to Juliet State Prison in Illinois right now.

Let me ask this question...

What are your feelings on this shit?

Do you think this fool got off because of who the victim was, or who he is?

If he was one poor blogger named Dirty Red, that was not world famous and worth millions of pesos (I say Pesos because that is what the current dollar is worth right now)would the jury have acquitted him?

Or if the young girl in the tape was white, would the jury have locked this fool up?

Or am I over dramatizing this whole thing?

I am sick of writing about shit like this. To me this is an injustice to ALL women not just Black women, but since I am a Black Man and this site is called A BlackMans View, I can only see this mess through my eyes.

Every woman in America should boycott this Negro.

Every man in America should boycott this fool,(if they consider themselves men), since he disrespected not only Black Queens, but White Queens, Hispanic Queens and Asian Queens.

Or maybe I am a member of the small society of men here in America that knows the value of women, self respect and self dignity.

Sometimes it damn sure seems that way.

The Price of Fame




I saw a very interesting story on CNN this morning about how the city leaders of Malibu, Ca has asked Kenneth Starr to help them in drafting some kind of legislation to help them put the "stalkarotzi" in check. Why they asked Mr. Starr to help them I have no clue, (since they do not need to find any stains on any celebrity's clothing or undergarments.) I guess they think Mr. Starr has something to offer... Anyways I digress... Back on Topic.

The paparazzi is and has been in my opinion a very dangerous organization. They do some outlandish s%^&t to get the "money shot" of any Mrs.or Mr. "I'm hot right now". They block off intersections, they jump on cars, they hide in trees, anything to get a picture to sell to the tabloids. I don't understand it. And the s#@$%T is getting worse.

To me this should be considered invasion of privacy, which is a crime, but it is not.

I believe that celebrities have the same rights as the rest of us common folk here in America.

What gives these stalkers with cameras the right to make money off of someone Else's discomfort? Why does the city of Malibu have to go and hire a camera loving freak like Kenneth Starr to spend millions of dollars of tax-payers money to write a 30 minute report on how bad the paparazzi is?

Is this not common sense? I mean there has got to be a law somewhere in the State of California that prohibits the kind of stunts the paparazzi pull.

I have seen pictures of how these stalkers have totally surrounded a celebrity's car to the point that the guy could not drive off without fear of running someone over. I have seen pictures of how these fools have chased celebrities cars through busy intersections and how they gain access to some celebrity homes illegally.

Is any of this not against the law in California?

I'll bet you a tank of gas, that if a celebrity shoots and kills one of these idiots, they would hang the guy by his nuts off the top of MGM studios.

All in the name of the 1st amendment.

America, you gotta love it!!
