See Bob Run, See Bob Jump

This is more old news that I am just getting the time to write about. Matter of fact I am writing this while sitting in business class on a flight from DFW to Seattle. My job is sending me up there for 2 weeks for a leadership class.  I hate to be all late and wrong, but I am a busy man trying to turn my little 'ole 15 cents into that coveted dollar, I know you understand.


A southern White man wants to start the very first White Only Basketball league.
He says that he wants Basketball to return to it's "fundamentals".
When I first heard this I was like what the fuck? But then I got to thinking about it and I realized that I can't be mad at 'ole Moose.

I mean, why not have a White Only Basketball League?
Who is it going to hurt?
Blacks have the NFL, the NBA,  the AND 1 league, Boxing and Tennis. Well maybe the winning people in Tennis. I would say Golf also, but we all know that the dude that currently holds all the records does not identify himself as black, so I will let the White Folks that are hell bent on destroying him for having carnal relations their women, have him.

Why not a White League?

There are some bad White Boys in college. I have wondered for years why these dudes don't get courted by the NBA like their Black counterparts do. I mean some of these White Boys are the truth in College, but they never get drafted. Why is that? The same goes for football. Why don't those big corn fed country boys get drafted like 'ole Jamaal from south Philly?

I always thought it was because White families know that they have more options out here in the mean 'ole world than dribbling and throwing a ball. While Black families hopes are more limited. We think that sports are the only way for us to leave South east D.C., South Central LA or South Dallas. (Has anybody ever wondered why all the "hoods" are on the south side of town? I think that might need to be researched further.)

I always thought that White families stressed education over all else, while Black families stressed get yours by any means necessary.

So in my humble opinion, if a White man is getting tired of working hard to achieve the American Dream like the rest of his fundamentally sound natural born White Americans, why not let him throw his hat into the ring of multi-million dollar contracts given to kids that have no idea what to do with them, multiple babies mama's in every major city, platinum jewerly, tattos, bringing guns to work and of course Hip Hop music contracts, then I ain't mad at him.

Let him have at it.

Maybe this will wake up some Black People that sports are supposed to be played for fun, not so Jamaal can feed his 10 half brothers and sisters. Sports are supposed to be a stress reliever, not an obligation. Sports were not meant to be a way out. Education  was supposed to be the ultimate get out of jail free card, not Basketball.

Well at least this dude is not trying to start the first all white Soul Food chain.

Then I might just have a problem.

Win or go home, Mr. President

So Big O's Health care plan may go up in smoke because the woman that was picked to replace Uncle Kennedy got her ass handed to her the other day.

This is what the Dumocrats get.

They have been in the majority for what, 3 years now?

What have they accomplished?

The American voters gave them the majority in a historic fashion, and what did they do with it?
The voters even elected the first Negro to be the face of the country to show their displeasure with the way things were and what has been done?

Can somebody tell me one thing that the "majority" has done since they were given the keys to the vault?

They have been bickering amongst themselves since the beginning.

 It is a damn shame that these fools have been handed the whole pie and they let it sit on the window sill too long cooling.

So I ain't mad at the Rethugs.

The Dumocrats are weak. They expect people to just continue supporting their "let's be nice to everyone" bullshit.
The American people want action, not promises of tommorow will be better than today.

The Dumocratic party had to know that this woman was not qualified to take over Uncle Kennedy's seat. Did they even campaign for her while she was ahead in the polls? Or did they just assume that just because ole Unc held it down for 50-leven years, that people would automatically vote for a Democrat?

Now these fools are stuck looking stupid because they have lost the majority that they took for granted.

It serves them right.

They have done nothing to support the President, and if I can put in my two cents, I believe that this was a planned slap in the face to the President. None of those old White men and some of those old Slave catchers in the Democtatic party want things to change. Can anybody explain why Healthcare is taking so long to pass, when supposedly the majority rules?

I know if I have 20 of my boys going against 15 of your boys, who do do think is going to walk away? There is strength in numbers.(If all the numbers are really on your side, that is).

I think that the Prez needs to show Congress, the Senate and the world whose nuts are swinging.

Stop all this bipartison bullshit. Stop trying to accomadate every damn body.

YOU are the boss, President Obama. Not Nancy Pelosi with her crypt keeper looking ass. Not Harry Reid and his "articulate negro" ass. Not Emannaule what's his name. And especially not Hill-Billy.

The people elected one Barrack Obama to lead the country. So let your nuts hang.
We need to see this change you that beat into the ground while you were interveiwing for the job that WE gave you.

I think that it is time for the Nigerian side of our President to surface.

If it doesn't, then the party of Rush Limdick, Fixed News, that crazy bitch from Alaska and Hip Hop Mike is going to kick your ass out of the house that was built by MY ancestors for THEIR ancestors.

It was not named the WHITE House for nothing.

And they are doing their best to make sure that the name doesn't change. You living there now is only a temporary set back.

The ramblings of a Fantasy Team Owner

I am some what of a sports connoisseur.

I enjoy all sports. I played all 3 major sports in school and I still dabble a little bit now.
My favorite NBA team is the Lakers. I like the New York Yankees and my on again off again NFL teams are the Carolina Panthers and the Dallas Cowboys. I do not follow any team religiously, because as I said on this blog before I like to have options. I cannot just follow any one thing blindly, through thick and thin. If  my teams are not playing the way I think they should be playing, I am the first to say that they need to shape up or ship out.

An example of this would be the way I handle my fantasy football players. This season I must have went through 50 or 60 different players. If I drafted a player or picked up a player through a trade and that player did not perform for me the way I was fooled into believing he could, I dropped his ass and went on to the next player.

My league was always joking me about this. The way I see it is if you are getting payed MILLIONS of dollars a year to play a childs game, then you play that Childs game with everything you have. There is no excuse for not performing, barring a serious injury or death. If you are able to do the basics of your job through an injury, then get your ass on the court, football field, Soccer pitch, Hockey ice or Baseball Diamond and do your damn job.

If I picked a player to be on my Fantasy team and they did not perform, then, adios amigo. C-ya.

That is why I could not be an Owner for real. I expect the best for my money and if I don't get the best, then I got a problem.

An example would be Josh Howard of the Dallas Mavericks.
This dude has not played a full season (82 games) since he was brought to Dallas about 6 years ago. But he still makes about 8 or 9 MILLION dollars  a year.

This guy has been nursing the same damn bum ankle for YEARS. Don't these teams have the best doctors money can buy? How can this dudes ankles be so damn weak? And groin injuries?

 Come on Son. Don't these cats stretch before the game and during the week? What the hell do these cats do during the off season?

In football if a guy happens to get seriously injured, he is back on the field in about 3 or 4 weeks.

You might not see the guy for 1 or 2 years! Can anybody say Tracy Magrady or Yao Ming?

These are two more dudes that have been hurt damn near their whole careers, but they are still some of the highest paid players in the world.

I don't understand it.

And don't get me started on dumb ass niggas like Gilbert Arenas.
You bring 4 guns to work, point one at a fellow workmate and the most that your employer does is SUSPEND you?

Yeah I know that the fool is going to jail and all, but after he does his 3 or 4 months and makes some appearances at inner city schools, teams will be lining up to give him his job back.

Not I said the Fantasy Team Owner.

This fool would not work another day in Basketball if I had my way.
I could not even bring a water pistol to my job and expect to come back in 3 or 4 months to my old cubicle like nothing ever happened.
I would not work in my choosen field again. I would probably have to change my name and move to a third world country in order to feed my family.

Anyways, thanks for reading my little rant.

God Bless you and Good night!!!!

There is nothing better than a bag full of dark chocolate Hershey's kisses

I know that this happened last week and all but I have been busy doing other shit and I have not had time to come here and write about it. Matter of fact this is the first time in about 2 weeks that I have felt like even looking at my blog, so please forgive me for being all late with this.

We as Black people in America often get mad over the wrong shit. We get all in an uproar over some shit that a white person says or another Black person says that we all know is based on facts, but because someone decides to talk about it in a public manner, we call for "apologies," sanctions, firings or resignations.
I am talking about Harry Reid.
If you are Black in this country, then you know the difference between light and dark skinned people.
I am dark skinned and I used to hate my skin color.
I used to sit in the tub when I was little and scrub my skin with a brillo pad because I hated being dark.
The girls in my school did not even look at me because I was considered "too black" for them. But then they all had problems when I said fuck em and starting dating latinas.
I was told by members of my family that I would never be nothing because I was Black and ugly.
So everythig that Harry Reid said about Obama having a shot at the presidency because he is light skinned, is true. He might have said it in a fucked up way, but it is true. If I decided to run for the Presidency, I would not stand a chance because I would have to change everythig about who I am as a person in order for the masses (white people) to accept me.
And I couldn't/wouldn't do that.
I have been told by people at my job that when I first started working for my company that they thought I was a Black militant. All because I spoke my mind, I have kept a shine head for years and I know how to carry an intelligent conversation with the White bosses.
I was told by a Mexican dude that the only thing he was afraid of was a big, Black, Bald man.
I fit all those catagories. I am 6'2, I weigh 220 pounds, I am dark skinned and like I said, I have kept a shine head for years.

Now the high yella people that work with me never had that misconception placed on them. They were the ones that were invited to all the office luncheons. Now that my coworkers know that I could care less, even though I do see color and that I am probably more qualified than half of them, I am "accepted", some what.
Now if I was born light skinned, would I have these sterotypes placed  on me?
I doubt it. I would be considered a "credit to my race" and handsome and all that "white" shit.
Have none of you ever noticed that whenever a white dude says he would date a Black woman it is always the Halle Berry looking women and not the Gabrielle Union looking women?
Or if White women talk about Black men it is always the Shamar Moore looking niggas and not the Don Cheadle looking dudes?
It is very fucked up, but it is America.
I love my dark skin now. I would not want to be anything else. Matter of fact I wish I could get darker. I am one sexy-ass dark creamy chocoloate ass Negro.

And to all the people that consider me ugly, uneducated, thuggish and a "Black militant" just because my African/Haitain roots are pure and untainted, remember the old saying, Chocolate melts in your mouth bitches, not in your hand.
In other words, in "negro dialect", you can eat a big black dick bitches.
Yeah I said it.

"Bitch is the new Black"? Naa ain't nothing new about Bitches

I am going to talk about something that I read today over at my man's RIPPA'S spot. He is going to be on some show tonight and I suggest that if you got time check him out. The topic that he said he will be discussing will be very interesting.

It is that topic that I am going to talk about now......

Why are single successful Black Women still single?

There has been some discussion lately centered on a book entitled "Bitch is the new Black."

This is a book that focuses on successfull Black women that cannot find a successfull Black man to copulate with.

I think it is all bullshit.

Successfull Black women cannot find a successfull Black man because they are not looking for a MAN. They are looking for  BOY that they can mold into the man they think they want.

Let me explain.....

In today's world women are moving up the corporate ladder at a much higher rate than men. Women outnumber men in most colleges 12 to 1.
They are stuck on that "independant" woman bullshit.

They constantly talk that shit about how they want a man to be a man but when they meet a man who is a man, they constantly demean his man-hood by talking about all that she can do without him.
They constantly throw up the fact that they make more money than them and they don't need a man for nothing.
They constantly talk about what they think a man is supposed to do, but they neglect to research what it is a woman is supposed to do.


My wife is always talking about what a man is supposed to do. We are supposed to take out the trash, wash the cars, mow the grass and all that shit, but she don't say nothing about what a woman is supposed to do when there is nothing in the house to eat or there are dishes in the sink, the floor needs to be swept, or clothes need to be washed. Her excuse is "I work all day. I am tired. I am not one of those hood rats you used to fuck with that sit around all day and collect a check. I am an "independent woman." She forgets the fact that I work all day too. But according to her that is what a man is SUPPOSED to do.

Now I am not saying that I think a woman is SUPPOSED to do all those things, but some women think that a man is SUPPOSED to do all the things she wants done. I have no problem with cooking cleaning or washing clothes. Matter of fact I do all the above. My moms taught me well just so I will not need a woman to do those things for me.

The point I am trying to make is that women talk that shit about not being able to find a good man, when there are usually 3 or 4 good men in their face at any given time that they ignore because they consider themselves "independent".

They use the tired excuse that Black men are insecure about being with a woman that makes more money than them. In some cases this might be true, but in most cases, it is not the MONEY that chases the man off. It is the WOMAN.

Why the hell would I waste my time on a woman that "can do bad all by herself?"

Why would I open doors for you or switch sides with you on the sidewalk so I will be the one that will get hit first if a car jumps the curb if you claim to be so "independent"? If you are "independent" why do you need me?

Some women got the game fucked up.

You can't have it both ways.

It is cool that women are moving at such a fast pace. I truly admire a woman that holds it down in today's world. There is nothing sexier than a woman that is out there doing her thang in a man's world.

But what works in the board room will not work at home.

This is why these women are still single.
It is not because there is a shortage of Good Black Men.
It is because there is a shortage of Good Black Men that will put up with their "independent" bullshit.

So all you single, "independent", "Bitch is the new Black" women bring it.
I can't wait to hear your "independent" excuses on how I am fucked up by writing this.

Resolutions?! I don't need no stinking resolutions!

This is my first post for 2010.

There  are a lot of things on my mind and I really don't know where to start this post off.

I am not going to make any resolutions for this year because I think New Year Resolutions are bullshit.
I can only talk about shit I know I am GOING to do. Not shit I tell myself I WANT to do.

I am going to do everything I did last year, except I am going to do it better. I am going to continue working on my 2nd degree. I am going to continue to keep my body and my mind in shape. I am going to continue to try to find my place in the Corporate world.

I am going to try to continue to be a husband, but that is becoming more and more difficult. Sometimes people grow apart, You know? But if God is listening to my prayers I will see another year as a married man. But if not, well......

I know what I am not going to do though.

I refuse to stay at my current job for another year. It is time for me to move on. I have accomplished everything I can accomplish in my current position and there is no longer any incentive for me to keep doing what I do. Besides there is no room for growth. And I am sick and tired of the piss poor leadership of the people claiming to be my "superiors". I am sick of the lies they tell and the way our feelings about how shit is don't matter. I am sick of giving suggestions about things that I feel would improve the morale of my department, only to be shot down.
So in other words I need a change and I am going to do everything within my power to implement the change I need.

I am tired of Texas. I want to be closer to my family.
I am the only member of my Klan to live in Texas. That shit is getting old.
My wife loves it here though. She has told me numerous times that it has always been her childhood dream to live in Dallas. Well, she has accomplished that dream.

As for me, well.....

Dallas is cool and all but it is not home for me. I feel out of place here. I thought I was getting accustomed to being here, but then we went back to Maryland 2 weeks ago for my Uncles 50th Birthday party being there just brought back everything I don't like about Texas. This may sound stupid, but I like Dallas, I just don't like Texas.

I am not saying I am moving anytime soon though. I am just venting. There are a lot of things going on in my life right now that I do not like. Living here is one of the many.

But this post is not about making any stupid promises about doing shit that I know good and damned well I ain't gonna do. This post was about doing the shit I have been doing, only doing that shit better.

So good luck to me.

I just hope that I don't have to go lay on somebodies couch for $200 a hour and "talk" about my problems. But I might just need to do that, before I end up being that guy that flips out and pulls a columbine.

Life is a bitch huh?
