The Right Thing To Do, Part 2


b2ap3_thumbnail_Act1-.Still008.jpg
Peace.      Yo, I'm back with part 2 of my blog on the "The Right Thing To Do".  Instead of a brotha writing another article I decided to produce a documentary film on police brutality and due process reform. At first I was going to leave the subject alone.  I put in my 2 cents on how people should conduct themself with the cops but in March of this year I met a sista, Antwynette Houston of Louisville Kentucky.  I read her article on another social media site.  After reading her story I was shocked to find out how serious her case was.  What looked like a local parking infraction turned into an attempted abduction from an off duty Louisville Police officer.  Mrs. Houston suffered a seriously dislocated shoulder injury from the officer.  It's been over a year and she's still in litigations with Louisville Metro Police.      ...

The price of Eurocentrism for non-Europeans

Yes, that is a supermodel...whatever the hell that is. Once again on another social site this pic of "supermodel" Naomi Campbell was posted with the title of "Unbeweavable" in the caption. At first I thought it was a Haitian refugee being rescued from another earthquake but no that's Naomi Campbell. I was like wow, my girl done turned into a Shaolin Monk or something but no, that's her taking a dip. Some pictures the paparazzi take should really be distributed and published in good taste. God DAMN!!! Right about now I know some of y'all are thinking "If this muthafucka says something else, so help me..." Good. My last blog talks about successful Black men now let's talk about the sistas this time. A dog is a dog. Yeah, that's what I wrote. A dog is a dog . Now think about it for a second. Calm down, calm down. A...

The Right Thing To Do

    The "Right" Thing to Do.Part 1      Yo, for the past 8 months the frequency of so-called police brutality incidences in this country has become very alarming.  Young men and women are getting beat up while the old men and women are getting abused.  What's even more disturbing is violent crime is still the highest form of crime in this country.  You got more people afraid of the po-po than Ebola outbreaks!  Damn!  You would think after all this "publicity" law enforcement officials are receiving in public view it would cause some type of civil unrest.  It's like the law enforcement departments in this country secretly declared a war on its citizens.  Really though!  C'mon yo!  Look at Baltimore City Police officer Vincent Cosom, that dude sucker punched Kollin Truss!  Have you seen the footage!  But guess what?  It's NOT police brutality.  Yeah I'm saying it!  Here it...

SAGGIN': NIGGAS spelled backwards, but going in the same direction.


Eugenics strikes again...        85% of the public thinks this fashion statement is something new & original...bullshit!  No it's not original and it's part of a far more bigger plan than people do not wish to believe.  A friend on another social site made a post about Men wearing sagging pants and how it disturbs her.  She posted it 1 day  ago when this has been going on since the early 90's.  Remember Easy E's track "We Want Easy"?  Y'all know that was Easy's & The D.O.C's (yeah it's true) baby mama R&B vocalist Michell'e asking the famous line "Easy, why you wear your pants like that?"  Y'all know Easy is not turning over in his grave, he's digging his way out to pull the pants up on all these men today!  Or maybe he was trying to tell us something.  He did die of AIDS and Dr. Dre...

Still Cooning: If the Real Jim Crow would have known then

     I ain't gone lie, that Leslie Jones bit on SNL was hilarious!  Seriously, that shit was funny as hell and well performed but most important...truthful.  Be that as it may, it was still COONING.  What's so sad about it is that it still shows and proves that my people still have not got it together.  We still are a "broken-in" people whose future seems to be obviously the cause of the next amendment to be repealed which is the 13th. Every damn time, seems like it'll never change or at least get better.  This brings me to the question; what would the real Jim Crow would have done to Thomas Rice if he'd known this would be his legacy.  I believe it's safe to say he would have killed Rice.  Can you blame him?      Yes, Jim Crow was a real brotha who grew up in New Orleans...
