Herman Cain aka “This nigga”

Greetings, kids. As promised I’ll contribute something every Wednesday… I’mma discuss Herman Cain’s ass because he entertains the hell outta me and he won’t take long as I have studying to do.

The fifty eleventh woman has come forward and says she has had an affair with him. Now, if 2 women accuse you of sexual abuse, they could just be hating and plotting ya downfall.. But when 4 or 5 from different areas of the country come forward, you deflee been smashing. These women just can’t keep coming forward and you just can’t keep denying it, bruh. You a nigga with money, I’m sure the poon was getting thrown at you on the regular… you were catching it… and your wife knows, but she’s just staying for the money or something.

This would all be an issue if the nigga was running a good campaign. I think its an insult to the party and the American people that this dude is running. He doesn’t know how the Government works and he doesn’t know shit about foreign policy. Not to mention, he’s arrogant as hell.

Barack Obama’s in the white house, yall gotta come harder than Rick Perry not knowing what programs he wants to cut, Michele Bachman saying black people had a better family structure during slavery and Herman’s dough tossing ass calling Libya “Lydia”… Who the hell is Lydia..

Alright, yall. Back to studying. More topics to come during the break. Peace

Racism at Makers Mark

I’m pretty racially insensitive. I chalk it up to being a black woman under attack all the time. Well, I call myself racially insensitive but I’m quick to point out when something’s racist. So maybe I’m racially sensitive.

I live in Louisville, KY. I frequent 4th street live. I was at Maker’s Mark on Saturday. A friend of a friend was Djaying there. I notice that all the white female employees were dressed as ‘Indians’… I noticed the ‘thanksgiving theme’ when a dude was behind the bar dressed as a turkey and a waitress was dressed as a (VERY SEXY) pilgrim.

“How racist.” I thought with my cranberry and vodka in hand… I got on myself and maybe thought ‘maybe i’m being too sensitive’…It’s Saturday night, loosen up and have fun… but thats just the thing.. By loosening up and having fun the racism goes un-addressed and therefore tolerated.. So, as I was leaving the bar, I pulled a black male employee to the side and told him that employees dressed up as “indians” was a bit offensive.

He didn’t get it.

I told him it was racially insensitive.. he said “how?” I was high and tipsy. I couldn’t explain and he needed way more guidance than I was available to give. The thing is, I doubt anyone can properly discern whether or not a Native American was in the bar… therefore, how do you know who you’re offending? They know better than to dress up making fun of Blacks or Jews cause you can easily point those out.. but someone with Native American blood may not look how we think a Native American looks.. For example, the woman I was named after was a Blackfoot. But you’d look at me and see a black girl… my little brother’s great grandmother is a Cherokee, but you’d look at him and see a lightskin black boy.

and that’s not even the point. Wrong is Wrong. We can’t keep tolerating shit ’cause of free drinks or good music.

But I let him know, and he’ll let someone know… and maybe the managers at Makers Mark may think twice by the time Kwanzaa comes around..

White people are so unaware, and I just wanna help ’em out.

What do you think?

“Every nigga that gets locked up ain’t Mandela.. ”

Whats up yall? Hope this Hump day finds you Happy and Humped.

Today I’m going to talk about how we get real tolerant of certain crimes when they’re singers, actors or athletes.

The latest figure that I guess inspired this week’s topic is the crew at Penn State. While Paterno wasn’t involved in any of the abuse, he did know and therefore got fired. I wasn’t surprised that “JoePa” knew about abuse or that he didn’t tell anyone, I’m surprised that hundreds of students got mad enough to go riot. I love sports.  I go to UofL so I know how important college sports are… but if Charlie Strong was caught doing something like Sandusky was, I’m not rioting for his job just because he wins football games. He abused a child…

Are sports more important than the mental and physical well being of children in that community? At what point do we say ‘ok, enough is enough.. i’m a fan, but that sh-t was fucked up’… Sandusky was a grown ass man butt naked in the shower with a CHILD. JoePa new about it and tried to cover it up. We know the reasons for him covering up were selfish but what if he had gone and told? His legacy would look ALOT better right now, #imho

Example #2.

Chris Brown. He fucked Rhianna UP. Her face was horrible when he got done with her. That nigga twit pic’d his domestic violence class certificate and bitches was all proud of him. #noand! Chris has plenty of female fans Rhianna’s age and younger and all of the sudden people learn what forgiveness is when he beats her like she’s a man? I’m a Christian so I do believe in forgiveness and second chances, but we also believe in consequences to actions.

Rihanna's face after Chris

I enjoy Chris Brown’s music. My vagina called his name when he did that performance with Ciara on the BET awards. But what he did was wrong and forgiveness should’ve been WAYYY delayed. Too many excuses were made for Chris and Rhianna took wayy too much of the blame. The fans should’ve been able to identify with Rhianna more than with Chris… and THEN when he threw a temper tantrum on Good Morning America? What a big baby! THATS when I knew we had let Chris off the hook too soon.

Who’s a good third example…

We could talk about all these rappers that we trying to ‘free’. It was Boosie’s birthday yesterday. #FreeBoosie popped up on my newsfeed and time lines once again yesterday. There are a few problems with these rappers who get locked up… You have money and influence, why’re you still doing broke nigga shit? That’s the thing. You hafta take the hood out of a nigga, while taking that nigga out of the hood. I’m digressing…

Futhermore, these niggas break the law. Wayne, T.I. and Boosie all broke the law. What about those of us who know people in jail that have been wrongly convicted, or those of us who have had friends murdered and their murderers didn’t see any consequences?  As a part of both of these groups, I think its offensive to scream Free Boosie when he was involved in someone’s murder, and when I have a close relative in jail right now simply because he could’t afford a good attorney.

We have to think about what we support when we continue to support people who have murdered, abused children and men who’ve beat women. What is that saying about what we’ll tolerate? Murder’s cool long as it isn’t one of my friends. Fuck all the little boys you want as long as you have a successful football program. Beat ya girl all you want as long as you can dance…

Wrong is wrong is WRONG!

Yall have any other examples for me? What about females that we elevate and tolerate just because they’re attractive? Kim K, Amber Rose? Flood my comments!

Willie Lynch letters

Have you all ever read Willie Lynch’s letters? I think its very important for black people my age to really take a look. It really shows how proactive these guys were in psychologically breaking the Africans that they enslaved. It is also very relevant today.

For example, he speaks of Africans like they are animals and compares breaking them to how horses are broken, and using physical characteristics to put the light skin slaves and dark skin slaves against each other. You all really should check them out. Link below.

A Wednesday post is coming.. on, well Wednesday. LOL. Not sure what topic I’ll tackle. Any suggestions? I may talk about the stuff white people do that shows that they don’t have enough problems. That’ll be one for strictly laughs tho. You know how people get. Anywho. House is on and its storming. I’m scurred.

Peace, yall.

The Plight of Black Women and No Good Black Men. Don’t Believe the Hype

Greetings, loves. I hope this Hump Day was well for you. As for me, I ain’t do shit today. I did’t sleep well, so I was sleep on and off all day, battling sinus issues and allergies. Pray for me. Can’t complain too bad though. Anywho, today I came to talk about the media always talking about successful black women not being able to find a man and black men that’re no good.

I’m not going to give you a history lesson. But I find it interesting how the family structure of black people has been proactively under attack since our arrival from the middle passage, and then a couple hundred years later, everyone has all these questions about the plight of black people. You can’t intentionally f-ck up people’s community for 500 years and then wonder why the pieces aren’t still picked up 200 years later.

Personally, I think black people and their families could be doing alot worse. My grandparents celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary yesterday and there are plenty of couples around my city I know that’re their age that have been married for decades. #Shoutouts to those couples because this country is NOT made for a black family.

Anywho, I think the media’s articles and stories on black people is just another ploy to destroy us. If we as young black women and men keep on reading these articles about how we’ll never get married, get a job, end up in jail, get abortions more than everyone else, not take care of our kids, die of diabetes or AIDS then we’ll do it. It’s called self-fufilling prophecy.

At the same time, I refuse to believe that all black people personalize everything the media throws at them… cause hey 98% of those images are pretty shitty.

I’m a young black woman, I’ll have a degree if its in the Lord’s will soon, I’m in college. I know plenty of beautiful, smart, sexy black women that’re happy, single or otherwise. It’s 2011, marriage is a beautiful institution, but black women don’t NEED to be married anymore for financial stability… It’s not always because we’re intimidating. I get approached by men of all different colors… and know 3 men good men with jobs that’ll marry me tomorrow.

I also know plenty of sexy, smart black men that’re doing what they’re supposed to do, not in jail and raising their children.

Maybe I’m around the talented tenth that DuBois spoke of, but the media’s depiction of us isn’t always accurate in all circles. The problem is that the media groups black people as if we all have the same experience. We live in this big ass country, why would we all have the same values, morals, beliefs and opinions?

It’s not that I don’t want to be grouped with all black people, I just don’t think its very accurate.

I’m writing this because I see alot of black media outlets feeding into this single successful black woman that needs dick myth.. and the rhetoric of the ‘no good black men’… I don’t expect much from white people, but I get disappointed when black people start contributing to the attacks on our culture.

The facts are there, alot of our black men are in jail, alot of our black women are mothers that have never  been and will never be wives. We should create a society where brown people will have more choices instead of constantly writing articles and doing stories about ’em.

We also have a lot of working black people with degrees that’re taking care of their children and contributing to society, just because articles aren’t being written about them, doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

Don’t believe the hype, yall.

Solo Gratia..
