Beauty is only skin deep


If this story was not so typical of today's world then it would be really sad.

You have to admit,the woman in the picture above is finer than a pair of legs would be to a quaddroplegic.

However...

Her story makes me think of the way people are treated because of their looks.

The better you look, the better you will be treated in today's world.

A famous beauty pageant winner getting caught up with drug dealers and gang bangers?

Who would have thunk it?

Would she have made the headlines if she was ugly and poor?

I think not.

Now I must admit that I consider myself to be a decent looking man. There are some things I want to get fixed, like my teeth, I need braces, I also need to get in better shape, I lost my 2 pack about 10 years ago, but other than that, I have no problem getting attention from the ladies that I encounter on a daily basis.

I get told on the regular that I am a very sexy Black Man.

But I have to ask...

What is real Beauty?

Why is it so hard to see real Beauty?

Looks are the first thing a person notices when they encounter someone, but why do people (me included) automatically assume that because a person is fine that they are above reproach?

Why do we assume that a good-looking person can do no wrong?

Personality is not what gets attention, it is looks.
When you first meet a person you could give a damn about personality, all you see is how attractive you think they are.

Most ugly people do not stand a chance in this world if they have nothing else to fall back on.

I fall into this category of judging people based on the way they look.
It is wrong and I try everyday to change my attitude, I am getting better at it, but It is hard to look at a person for what they are instead of what they look like.

Besides, I cannot see myself waking up next to a woman that might have a nice personality, but whose face looks like ten miles of a Mississippi dirt road, with all the bumps clearly outlined.

Lord forgive me, but I'm just saying....

Another example of the JUST-US system

This is some straight bullshit.

I was over at my man's Rippa's site and there is a petition going that I think everybody that demands equal justice for every American needs to sign.

This is the type of shit that makes me want to go back to my 'trying to be a gangsta' days.

There is no excuse for this type of behavior.

NONE!!!

Some people seem to forget that we ( American Black People) are humans too.

We bleed, cry, laugh and love just like the rest of the people that we share this planet with.

Most of the problems that we (American Black People)are faced with in this "great" country of ours are problems of our own making.

We have access to education, but some of us choose to remain ignorant.
Some of us refuse to accept the responsibility of raising our children, which in turn forces our children to raise themselves.
Some of us live dangerous lives,(i.e having unprotected sex), which in turn effects the only people that are trying to hold this thing of ours together, (Black Women).
Some of us refuse to accept the responsibility that comes with being men, which forces the only people that are trying to hold this thing of ours together (Black Women)into positions that God did not make them for.
Some of us refuse to work for what we want, so some of us resort to the fast way, street life, which in turn fills up our nations prisons, which is glorified by ignorant-ass rappers, who are glorified by ignorant-ass youngins, Thus completing the cycle of ignorance.
So see, 75% of all of our problems are problems of our own making.

But the remaining 25% is shit that we do not have any control over.

Shit like the story Rippa blogged about.

Why are the people in this story not being featured on all the news outlets in the country? Nothing about any of this is right. Innocent people were wounded and killed by a bunch of rednecks, and all the media had the nerve to talk about during Katrina were looters?

Give me a fucking break.

Like I pointed out, most of the problems in our communities can be fixed.

By us.

But this shit here cannot be fixed by us.

It can only be fixed by people that care about this country and all that it is supposed to stand for.

So I am asking all the readers of my blog to sign the petition so those Rednecks down in New Orleans can be brought to justice.

A lot of people either read blogs or have their own, so if we can come together for this, maybe, just maybe this miscarriage of justice can be dealt with and corrected.

The more things change, The more they stay the same


There are a lot of things wrong in this great country of ours.

This is one of them.

Barack the Magic Negro.

What the fuck is this shit?

My man Zack wrote about this also, but I feel the need to elaborate on my little brah's comments.

This is some straight BULLSHIT!!

And if you need 3 guesses on where this originally started, well, on second thought, fuck it... All you need is one... Rush I want to get High Limpdick was the originator.

Why?

This man is Twenty Four odd days away from moving into the big white house on 1600 Penn. Ave, and this is the respect he gets?

Was there ever a song entitled 'I'm losing it' when that racist, piece of shit, fake Cowboy from Calfornia was elected?

Or what about 'It's hard out here for a pimp' when sweet-dick Bill was elected?

Or what about 'Move Bitch, Get out the way', when Jr. got elected?
Twice?

Why does Big O get to be the first one to have his own 'national anthem'?

And the racist fuck (he is a leading contender to head the RNC) that sent this shit out as Christmas Gifts to all his Rethuglican partners said he meant it to be satire?

This was supposed to be funny?

Really?

Damn.

And here I thought that Big O's election was the turn-around-point on race relations here in the good ole US of A.

Silly me.

Well I guess it has turned around.

Now it is considered to be funny to be an ignorant, racist, red necked, motherfucker.

Disrepecting the President elect of the United States of AmeriKKKa is now viewed as being satire.

My oh my, we sure have come a long way from the colored fountains, water hoses and police dogs, have we not?

If Big O happens to get hurt or killed (That racist motherfucker and all his boys sure better hope not), forget CNN, you had better tune in to Comedy Central.

Merry New Year


Today is Christmas.

Jesus' Birthday.

Supposedly.

I am not a religious person. I believe in God and his son Jesus, but I just do not trust religion. Who can really say what religion is the right one? There are so many relegions out there, which one can really say they are the one true way to get to God?

I believe in heaven but I have doubts about Hell. I believe that we are living in Hell right now. I do not see anything that is worse than where we are. All the pain, hatred, despair, immorality and all the depraved conditions that we as humans have become so desensitized to, as if it is the norm, cannot be the way it was meant to be.

What can be worse that turning on the news and seeing a report on how a little kid was murdered by his own mother? What can be worse that looking at CNN and learning about the problems in Africa?

Besides, if you read the Bible, it says that Satan was banished to the Earth to rule it for a short time, not that he was banished to some furnace beneath the Earth. He was given the whole Earth, not whatever it is under the Earth. Satan and his goons are walking among us. They are eating with us, sleeping with us, laughing with us and maybe even crying with us.

I think everything we have been taught is a lie. Especially the story about Jesus' birth.
No where in the bible does it mention the exact date of Jesus' birth.

And if you do your research about where Jesus was born (Bethlehem), you will find out that their seasons are pretty much the same as our seasons. Meaning that if it is cold here in December, then it is cold there in December. Meaning that there is no way that any Shepard would be out in the fields at night, in cold ass December, grazing sheep. The sheep would have been in a pen and the Shepard would have been curled up next to a fire.

I also believe that Jesus said it does not matter about his birth, his death is what is significant. His death is what freed us from our sins, not his birth.

And if you do your research, you will find that Christmas was not intended to be a celebration of Jesus birth, it was started as a celebration of different Sun Gods.

So I do not get into the whole Christmas thing.

I believe it started out as a Pagan holiday that has nothing to do with my God or the son of my God.

I also do not like how for one day out of the year everyone is supposed to be so festive and full of good cheer. If you are an asshole, then be who you are all year. If you want to be helpful to your fellow man, then be helpful the whole year.

I am pretty sure that the homeless man that you see everyday going to work really appreciates the free Christmas dinner that you serve him every year to show how much you "care", but don't you think he will be hungry and cold tomorrow? (The day after Jesus' B-day).

And another point I would like to make is that in all my 30 some odd years, I have never seen a Fat white man slide down any chimneys in my hood delivering anything to any poor Black or Hispanic kids. If we saw a fat white man in our hood on Christmas morning, it was either an Insurance salesmen, a Jehovah's Witness or the Police.

And none of them was greeted with warm cookies or milk.

The ignorance among us

While I was cruising the list of blogs that I try to read at least once a day, I saw several things that really bothered me. This is one. Those two little heffas need their asses beat. There is no excuse for that type of shit. What kind of world do we live in were you can see another human being get ROBBED and then SHOT, and you think that shit is funny?

WTF?

Damn Niggas!!
I swear if the rest of us Black Americans do not do something about these ignorant-ass niggas that we have living amongst us, we are all going to hell.

These next two links that I am about to share do not have anything to do with any of my distant niggerish cousins, they are about my equally distant melanin deprived cousins(white folks).

These next two links are full of hate and ignorance. (Which can be attributed to the first link as well).

This type of ignorance, and especially this shit does not surprise me at all, because I have seen it and dealt with it my entire life.

But that does not make it less disturbing.

I do not understand any of this. All three of these links boggle my mind.

What kind of person is so evil that they will sit by and laugh at another person that is getting robbed and then shot?

What kind of parents would name their children after one of the most hateful and despicable people that ever walked the face of the earth, and then not understand why people are upset about it?

What kind of person writes a blog that degrades other people, people that have done nothing to them personally, just because of something you might have read somewhere else? And then what kind of people read such blogs and leave comments that agree with the author?

It is shit like this that make me want to go live on an Island all to my self.
How can the majority of Americans say that they are "Christians" when they sit by and allow such hate and venom to walk side by side with them?

I wonder if the people in the sites I have linked actually think that their behavior is accepted by whatever God they claim to represent?

Things that make you go Hmmmm.....

I see Pink Elephants and Purple Dinosaurs


Yesterday afternoon while I was sweating to some Big Daddy Kane at my office gym, I noticed something that, well, for lack of a better term, made me think about this great country that we live in.

On 3 of the 4 50 inch Plasma's that are right in front of the treadmill I was on, was ESPN's All Madden championships.

For those of you that don't know what this is, it is a championship for the best player of the Madden08 NFL football game. The winner was some kid from somewhere that I don't remember. He won $100,000.

$100,000 DOLLARS for playing a video game. (Lord I am in the wrong business.)

Anyways...

That is not what got me to thinking. I am happy for the brother. He did the damn thing and he did it legal. I ain't knocking this KID'S hustle. Get your paper by what ever way you can.

What got me to thinking was all the grown ass men that were there cheering this KID on. They were yelling and high-fiving each other like they were at the SuperBowl.

Me personally, I don't find any enjoyment playing video games. They bore me. I do however like the Nintendo WII, and I intend on getting me one soon. That is only because I can actually interact with the game. I can get a good work-out playing the WII.

But sitting on a couch with a bunch of other grown ass men does not appeal to me at all. I would rather be on a court, field or golf course doing that shit for real.
I don't see the purpose of pretending to be a commando, or a medieval knight. I don't get the sensation of pretending to kill zombies or jack cars in Malibu.

And that is the purpose of this post.

Americans like to fantasize. We like to pretend that we are somebody else, or that we have more money than we actually do, or that we were born with DD tata's. We like to pretend that our eyes are blue or that we were born naturally blond or that our hair was born straight cascading down our backs.
We like to pretend that America is just and fair to all of it's citizens.
We like to pretend that the people that we elect to represent us actually do have our best interests in mind.

Most Americans are a bunch of pretenders.

That is what I was thinking about as I watched those grown ass men cheering those kids on for pretending to play in the NFL.

Pretending.

I guess pretending to be real is the new reality.

A tale of Two "Brothers"



As you all know by now the Supreme Court threw out the case that a lawyer from New Jersey brought up concerning whether or not Obama was born in the good ole US of A, or whether he was born in Kenya.
The lone Supreme that pushed this bullshit was none other than Black America's favorite uncle, Clarence Thomas. Another brother, Alan Keyes tried this same shit California. He was trying to get the Cally Supremes to take back the Electoral College Votes that Obama won there under the guise that he is not an America citizen.

Now I really don't know anything about either one of these guys, so I decided to wikipedia them.

What I learned surprised me.

Clarence Thomas was born poor in back woods Georgia. According to his upbringing, he should be the main person leading the civil rights movement. With him being a Supreme and all, he is in a perfect position to put it down for the cause.

But we all know he has not and probably will not. The same programs that got him where he is, he disowns now.

He says we don't need them. He has gotten so comfortable living in the big house, that I think he has forgotten the struggles that he went through.

Alan Keyes on the other hand, was not born poor in some field in the South. His parents were military, so he probably never saw the racism that Uncle Clarence did. He grew up in a very diverse environment. To me this guy is a religious nut. He is one of the few Black people in this country that thinks that America really cares about people of color.

What is the purpose of this post?

Well...

I just cannot for the life of me understand how anybody, Black, White, Asian or Hispanic could hate themselves so much that they disown everything about themselves and their culture. How in the world can any Black Man not be proud of Obama? You don't have to agree with his politricks, because he is a politician, but damn what does a brother have to do to get a little respect?

Are they jealous, or are they so enveloped in self hatred that they will not acknowledge the fact that Obama has made history?

I guess that is the $64,000 question.

Trouble in Paradise


There are a lot of things in this world that I share with 7 or 8 billion people that really pisses me off.

People driving slow in the fast lane during rush hour is one of them.

Getting cold fries at a fast food joint is another one.

The damn Cowboys choking again in final 5 minutes of a game that was being handed to them is something that really makes me want to grab the Jammy and flat blast anyone that is within 10 feet of me.

How bout them Cowboys?

Damn they piss me the hell off.

Romo and his inconsistent ass, the defense choking when it counts and T.O. complaining about not getting the ball is getting very old.

The Cowboys have the best roster that money can buy. On paper there is not another team in the NFL that should be able to step on the same field as them and walk away winning.

But we see that is not the case.

There is something going on in that locker room that is not right.

There is no plausible explanation on why they lost that game last night.

NONE.
There is one silver lining however....

The Deadskins got their asses handed to them last night, so I guess all is not lost in the world.

I'm a Nigga, You a Nigga, We some Niggas, Wouldn't You like to be a Nigga too


First Soldier Boy showed how ignorant and young he is with his 'shout out to the slave masters' quote, and now that one hit wonder Jim Jones wants to replace the word Nigga and Bitch with Obama and Michelle.

Yep you read that right. This bamma wants to call people Obama and Michelle instead of calling them a bitch or a nigga.


Most of the rappers out today are not artists. They are a bunch of CB4 types.

But this shit right here is straight ignorant.

All I can say is What the Fuck is this fool thinking?

When will the buffoonery and homie the clown ass clown shit stop?

You would think that seeing a Black family about to pull up in a U-Haul in front of the whitest house in America's History would be enough for fools like these to want to stop being and acting like Niggas.

To me it would make them to want to stop wanting to associate with and be seen with Niggas.

Being Niggas is the one thing that my people just can't seem to want to stop wanting to be.

I don't understand it.

I swear before Allah and 9 more Niggas, I just don't understand it.

(Just kidding folks. I know Allah is not a nigga. Just a little Jokey joke)

Lighten up People!!
