Racism in the United States HMM

In Afrian American Twitters, African American Bloggers on March 13, 2015 at 5:01 am

There are people always eager to tear down black people and the black race sometimes even me.  However as you think about the actions of white people in America you know why modern day black people want to confine themselves to being entertainers.  The quiet fact is that white people just don’t want people other then themselves to be anything.  There are even white women challenging black women for skin and butts at this point in the history of the U.S. and white people and black people are letting them win.  I saw one white woman who was caught while pregnant and she is white as a sheet and maintains a tan that keeps her looking like a latino with black roots. ANYWAY

I have spoken in this blog before about the Atlanta Race Riots of 1906, when white people thought that blacks were so affluent that they killed and burned down everyone and everything they could in a jealous rage.   It is rumored but not confirmed that Charles Drew the inventor of blood plasma died in a whites only hospital because whites refused to work on him. This has been refuted but his treatment was probably delayed until they realized who he was. There have been numerous black inventors of things like peanuts, the filament for the light bulb, traffic lights many items that are essential to everyday functioning.  As far as Africa goes it is not deepest darkest Africa and metallurgical work pioneered  by the Yoruba used for centuries was not figured out by the west until the mid to late part of the twentieth century.

I say all of the above to say I really don’t understand the racism in the air. Honestly, in Atlanta I can really feel hate for me emanating from some whites and a lot of people who are immigrants.  It’s like they want to take a knife and stab me in the back.  Ironically, there is one race of people where I felt their scorn and rage and something happened to one of their race.  I was appalled one day when one rolled her eyes at me snapped her back at me and than the next day I turned on the news and one of her race had been run over by a dump truck.  I felt guilt, but I am illustrating the palatable hate in the air towards black people.  It is almost psychic and there is something psychic going on with me guided by my obsession with karma and trying to be a good person and not negative. When I was falsely accused of taking my daughters glasses at visionworks and even after this was proven wrong the police took me to jail anyway for disorderly conduct two officers were killed the next day at an apartment complex.  So when I say this woman had an almost how dare you walk into this farmers market attitude and it was followed up with an unexplained tragedy to her race I know by the karmic actions that happened that I was not paranoid and the ugly attitude she showed was real. ANYWAY

Back to the Atlanta Race Riots and a little history, as stated earlier blacks have been intimidated into being anti-intellectual because whites don’t like it and all of those blacks are not going to be hired if they were not…. Well with the advent of the millennium under President Bush in the government it looked like the tide had changed for black people who had persevered and networked.  Under a republican there appeared the first black secretary of state and the first black national security adviser. The republicans had shown a willingness and an openness to give people what they earned.

As a result in the next major election cycle meaning after President Bush finished with his two cycles.  The democrats “managed” to find and I mean managed to find an articulate, handsome, very educated black man to run for president.,  He ran. He won, but not without the first quote un quote black president Bill Clinton who was really white telling him he was living a fairy tale for running.  He won!

This is when we come to the Atlanta Race Riot moment from republicans. In the twenty first century we have white individuals whose envy of one man is pathological.  For the record there have only been 44 presidents it is highly unlikely that President Barack Obama took their spot and for them to think so is truly ludicrous. The pathology and the Atlanta Race Riot moment can be pinpointed to the night President Barack Obama was being inaugurated and these individuals pledged that they were going to make sure the president got nothing accomplished and would be a one term president. Fortunately it did not work out for them that way.

In any event this outrage has spread to all black people fueling the koch brothers to pass legislation where it is literally legal to kill a black person without punishment. Any police officer can kill a black person and no one particularly cares. It is open season on black people and even the immigrants know it.  Someone from Texas told me that signs for the klan in Northern Georgia are open about klan meetings and THEY were shocked.  White people are operating in pseudo segregation it’s there, it’s happening.  The insidiousness of it all came when a fraternity was splashed all over the TV talking about a nigger would never be admitted into their fraternity. I am vaguely familiar through attending two black college campuses on what black fraternities do and I seriously doubt that most black men don’t want to get drunk and sleep in the snow all night what one friend long ago told me happened at her campus.  She said you don’t believe how drunk white people get, they get so drunk they fall asleep in the snow and wake up in the morning and go about their business.  I asked her don’t they get hypothermia. No she replied emphatically and we all laughed.  For me as a college student I remember greeks as stepping and performing. I remember marveling at how high one jumped even though when I arrived on campus everyone whispered to me that he was gay and they had hid his girlfriend in a closet to see him being done by another man. In any event he could still jump.  ANYWAY

As we watched these guys chant they did not want a nigger in their fraternity, I tweeted wow these are UT rejects and trust me Texas has created a unique talented tenth option that is really wonderful if you graduate in the top ten percent of your class you are automatically admitted to flagship Texas universities.  So they are not the best Texas has to offer.  But as I tweeted this the NEWS said oh well they do this at other fraternities even in Texas at UT.  At that moment I began to think that televising frat guys talking about niggers was some coded way of telling other white people it’s OK to be racist. We are moving to a new error of white supremacy.  As far as other fraternities using the N word if you can’t prove it it never happened and I hope they stick to this story so we will not usher in a new age of racism in the U.S.

I never edit… hopefully it’s readable.

Oh yeah one more thought one of the guys hollering about Niggers was jewish… honestly though black people in america have never been slotted to be exterminated wholesale. White people lynched blacks and vented on blacks but knew and know they could not at one time live without our labor and did not want to live without our culture.  All modern music genres in the United States have come out of an African American tradition, modern casual clothing in the U.S. is highly influenced by black people. We are america! If you don’t think so look at this a productive greek sorority practicing a black tradition of stepping much more productive than getting drunk and sleeping in the snow….

Tiger Woods: Minitruth, Delete tweet, Time Traveler Elin Woods AMY PART II

In Afrian American Twitters, African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, african american twitters, Assassination, celebrities, culture, current events, elin nordegren, elin woods, entertainment, ethnic twitters, female blogger, female bloggers, politics, Race, Race and Class, relationships, Sex, sports, The Police, tiger woods on February 23, 2010 at 3:37 am

Tiger Woods  made a statement and expects the world to believe him.  First of all I don’t care about Tiger Woods and am very resentful he knocked more relevant news off of the air like an assassination of a Hamas Leader, a jobs bill, a healthcare bill, and other more worthy coverage.  Tiger Woods is trying to manipulate me as a viewer of the news and a follower of current events.  The honest truth is I will not be manipulated. 

I suppose making a statement is standard fare for athletes at this point, but the statements regarding domestic violence and the lack of it in Tiger and Elin’s marriage is little hard to believe and frankly are not credulous statements.  In my mind and just my mind Elin Woods is like the Alabama shooter an accident waiting to manifest and if the world and Tiger Woods continue to cover up her actions she will eventually do something horrible.  I am not one to judge, I have done things I have regretted in the past but the one characteristic that I’ve had is the realization that I was wrong, apologetic, and it happened.  As Tiger Woods knows from his statement the first step in any recovery is acknowledging you have a problem.  As long as it is not acknowledged that Elin Woods busted out THREE SUV windows because she was angry, did confirmed extensive damage to the inside of the house because she was angry she has a problem and is dangerous to herself and others. 

The pretend  world that Tiger and Elin Woods are living in is a world insulated by billions of dollars and can probably protect Elin a lot ; but as friends, loved ones, and people who have knowledge of Amy Bishop know that when or if Elin Woods loses all of her marbles the damage may be so horrific that people will question WHY was this problem  allowed to fester so long.  The big question for me is does Elin realize that she destroyed her own home, chased her husbands SUV while in a golf cart most likely running him off the road and definitely knocking out three windows the side one and was it two back ones?  Does she remember doing 60,000 dollars worth of damage to a house that she and Tiger  lived in while he was on a PGA tour?  Do Elin and Tiger Woods honestly believe the lies that were fed to the media?

This is not the first case of operatives of Tiger Woods attempting to lie to the media.  Ronda Storms a state representative of Florida tried to drum up rumours that there were false reports of child abuse connected to the Tiger Woods Home and that the state of Florida was looking to prosecute someone; while according to Florida Newspapers the Attorney General of Florida had not received one complaint from Family Services that a false report had been made.  What my sources said was that the POLICE referred the case to Family Services because of the condition of  Tiger Woods face and by law they were required to report the incident.    This is what I initially heard prior to this state representative making these obviously false statements and wasting not TIGER WOODS BILLIONS BUT TAXPAYER MONEY WITH FALSE CLAIMS UNSUBSTANTIATED BY THE ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE OF FLORIDA. 

The Tiger Woods Farce is just endemic of the society we live in.  Tiger Woods obviously thinks the world is a time machine where history can be rewritten ie.  the book in his car dealt with physics that can lead to time travel,  a 1984 Tiger Woods is BIG BROTHER and has directed the Ministry of Truth (minitruth) to redirect what happened between He and his wife to be rewritten where the truth becomes a lie, or maybe he thinks his life is a tweet and he can delete the tweet and what was done never happened.  Whatever, I wish he would just play golf and leave me out of his personal life what needs to be known, I know he’s not the source, and a sometimes complicit  media can not be trusted.

Hey isn’t Tiger Woods the celebrity caught having sex in the  church parking lot with a waitress and got the media to take a pass on reporting this even though they had pictures, WOW!! If I were caught in the church parking lot having sex you know what would happen to me, I would go straight to jail.  TIGER WOODS = NO SYMPATHY NONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!  As for ELIN WOODS DOES SHE HONESTLYY BELIEVE SHE DOES NOT HAVE A PROBLEM OR BUSTED OUT THREE WINDOWS TO GET TIGER WOODS OUT OF THE CAR IF SHE DOES WE HAVE AMY BISHOP PART II AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN!!!!

Tiger Woods Fool of the Decade

In Afrian American Twitters, African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, african american twitters, athletes, black blogger, black bloggers, black twitters, Black Women Bloggers, current events, elein woods, elin woods, entertainment, rachel uchitel, sports on December 29, 2009 at 10:31 am

As an African American Woman I have extremely conflicting emotions towards Tiger Woods.  There is my gut feeling that turns my stomach at the way that he’s treated his wife and his family, and there are the sane rational feelings that tell me no matter what Tiger Woods has done he’s the master of his craft and what I should be studying are his mental strengths and characteristics that allowed him to be the Master of the Masters, that allowed him to be the first nonwhite person to ever win the Masters.  These are qualities worth embracing and loving but lately the stomach turning has not stopped.

Daily there is a new story about Tiger Woods character that literally makes me dislike him and think that he’s a rotten egg.  The tales of mistresses are not enough to make me hate him, he’s married he’s a billionaire his wife can have literally anything in this world she wants except the fidelity of Tiger Woods, not bad for a woman that’s gone from working in a boutique and being a nanny to being the wife of a billionaire.  However the manner upon which he conducted his last affair with Rachel Uchitel,  Joy Behar had to apologize to for saying Uchitel she’s a Hooker, has been startling.  The careless text messages have been jaw dropping Tiger writes the following to Rachel Uchitel,

“I get it. It f—–g kills me, too. I finally found someone I connect with…..”someone I have never found like this. Not even at home.”

Rachel Uchitel

When reading the text messages that Tiger Woods wrote to Rachel Uchitel and connecting them with the persona of Rachel Uchitel  my heart takes over and I feel extreme disgust for Tiger Woods.  Infidelity is wrong but when it appears to be with a a woman who looks like she’s done the whole golf team or helped the whole golf course be unfaithful to their wives, my head cannot reconcile me to the genius athlete that Tiger Woods is.  While I don’t believe that hitting someone in the head with a golf club is the right thing to do, and I do think that Elin  should have seen the inside of a jail at least overnight, I do believe the circumstances that led Elin Woods to clunk her husband on the head could definitely be called a justifiably out of her mind moment. Tiger Woods is alleged to have spent Thanksgiving Day frantically texting Rachel  Uchitel the woman above with her mouth on another woman’s thigh, and with the five guys, he forgot to erase one picture and left his “smart” phone at home with a picture of a naked uchitel on it that she had sent to him that day with the full knowledge that it was the First Thanksgiving of Wood’s nine month old and two is such a precious age for  the other  child, Uchitel chose that day to spend it sending naked pictures to Woods while he was at least trying to be a family man, what a woman!  In any event the wife of Tiger Woods become so enraged by the way that Tiger Woods was treating her and over the picture,  she hit him in the head with a golf club and you know the rest of the saga.

The point to be made here is I am an avid twitterer and texting while with a date, loved ones, and people that you like and respect and have taken the time to be with you is so disrespectful.  I have even twittered that the world did not lose much of a man when AJ  or RJ of  The Real Housewives of Atlanta was killed because I saw one episode of Atlanta housewives and observed whatever his name texting the whole time he was at a party.  If I felt this way watching RJ/AJ I can only imagine my feelings towards watching Tiger woods texting the woman above with her mouth on another woman’s thigh and with the five guys, texting her the whole Thanksgiving Holiday.   I know I would want to clunk tiger on the head too because every time I think of the Atlanta housewives episode with RJ or AJ I get really angry that someone would treat someone like that.

While my head still admires Tiger Woods, my heart is just not with him.  While my head says Elin no longer has to hang clothes on a rack or wipe the nose of someone elses snotty nosed children my heart says nobody should text their mistress in front of their wife. Mistress time is mistress time and home time is home time the two should not mix.  Tiger Woods should have shown some  sort of decency in his dealings with his family and all for what the woman who made Joy Behar apologize to her for saying Uchitel its a Hooker.

The author of this post has nothing against divorce and does not believe marriage should be a life term in the penitentiary, but she does believe that when someone can no longer be the majority of the person the other one married they should be honest and call it quits.  I have no clue what Tiger Woods prenup says but if it says he has to give Elin Woods 300 million dollars if he leaves her then he should have swallowed it and left instead of being the FOOL of The Decade.  Elin Nordgram Woods deserved more so much more than what she got a heartless Prince that drove her insane.

The United States of Chicago, Oprah Queen of the World

In Afrian American Twitters, African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, african american twitters, black twitters, International Relations, politics, Poverty, Race and Class on October 1, 2009 at 8:26 am

While the United States faces amazing obstacles that the president inherited from the previous administration, unemployment, foreclosures, bank closures, and social upheavals the president of the United States has demoted himself to the President of Chicago, winging him up is Oprah Queen of the world.  One wonders if the bid for the Olympics is a true desire for the city of Chicago or just a power play to see if Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama can be crowned King and Queen of World Influence.

While Oprah and Barack seek to be anointed King and Queen of the world ie. First Black President of the United States and Richest Black woman in the world , one wonders why the concept of solving very real problems in the city they call home is one challenge that they seem not to be too interested in solving.  Currently Barack Obama seems to be not too interested in solving Americas problems but getting the Olympics to Chicago, just like he did not seem to be too interested in solving Chicago’s problems but being president of the United  States .

The Quest for the Olympics  seems to be very fake and shallow when there are young men and women beating each other to death on the streets of Chicago.

The quest for the Olympics seems to be a facade when a cold winter is approaching and there are  individuals who may not have heat to heat there homes in Chicago or in Barack Obama’s case the United States.

These are problems that effect all cities not just Chicago but these are problems that Chicago seems not to be interested in taking care of.  To the King and Queen of the World the very real problems of Chicago do not exist for they are essentially saying to the poor of Chicago “LET THEM EAT THE OLYMPICS”

Finally the caveat in the Chicago quest for the Olympics is that they are not that major of a city.  For some of the Olympians this will be there first and only trip to the Olympics.  Honestly now where would you want to be in the summer of 2016 in the mean streets of Chicago or on a Sunny beach in RIO.  Ask the fallen flight of RIO to Paris where they would have rather been.  RIO to PARIS. Straight Shot………..

ITS RIO BABY

Race and Skin Tone Among Black Americans A Losing Game

In African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, Black Women Bloggers, celebrities on March 31, 2009 at 6:03 am

I have spoken briefly about race on the blog with the basic statement that as it relates to skin tone for blacks in the United States it’s a losing and a very conflicting game.  The issue of skin tone came hurling to the front of my thoughts this Sunday night while exploring Black Planet’s website.    They had done an article on P Diddy and his casting call request which read as follows:

The management company for Diddy’s Ciroc-Imperative Talent Management-sent out a casting call and they were very clear about their requirements:

After seeing this ad two things occurred to me, Brown and Black girls are not allowed and after meeting all of these requests of height, skin tone and color, and size these girls would only get $35.00 and hour.  Looking at this I recalled my conversation with a retired black prostitute formerly married to a retired dead SF police officer.  Wow these girls will give sex away for anything she said, they’ll give out sex for a ten dollar crack rock.  I used to go to Vegas and make thousands in a weekend, she said, I don’t understand.   Diddy’s call and his pay was an insult to dark toned black women as well as an attempt to play all women short in terms of pay and what the going rate for a model is which I hope is more than $35 an hour. The cost of Ciroc Vodka is $30.oo a bottle.  8 bottles of ciroc is $240.00.  I would hope these women would regognize that they are worth a great deal more than 8 bottles of Vodka.

In any event this post is not about model pay.  It’s about race in the black community.

My first experience with race came at an Air Force Base Fair when my mischievous father challenged our next door neighbor to go to the kissing booth and kiss the “white” women at the kissing booth.  Our next door neighbor who was a quiet man who I had hardly ever heard talk was pretty doubtful of the idea but my father egged him and taunted him on so eventually he gave in.  They walked over and kissed the woman on the lips and that was it.

The Fallout

I don’t know how it got back to our neighbors wife but I still can remember her coming to our house discussing the issue with my mom.  I can hear her loud shrill voice saying the following: As light as I am, and she was very light she was about ten shades lighter than a paper bag and could go easily for Jewish,  anyway I remember her saying as light as I am he’s going to have the nerve to go and kiss a white woman.  I’m leaving him.  I then listened to her talk about his very dark family even his momma.  I’m getting a divorce she said and she left him after many years of marriage.

She immediately moved off base and filed for divorce, all because of an innocent kiss with a white woman. “this was an extreme racial reaction probably in response to their private conversations where this man blacker than the silkiest of black cats probably told her in Diddy fashion, baby I love your skin etc. etc. etc.  What probably went through her mind was he wants to go even lighter to whiter and she left.  Diddy’s casting call is essentially what went through this very light skin women’s mind am I black enough, if he wants me this light he may eventually go over to another race.  The very innocent kiss was like a bell in her head.  He wants something else.  Hypothetically but not realistically she could have been right as one commenter on Black Planet stated Diddy has gone from very dark skin women all the way up to white women and so has 50 cent.

The Reaction

80739-82

I suppose anyone reading this may wonder how could someone else’s divorce traumatize me.  I suppose being a witness to everything that occurred could have traumatized a little girl seeing the kiss, hearing the reaction, and watching the woman move out could have alerted me to the strange  nature of race.   However this was not all, this was not all.   The quiet man who hardly ever spoke was so upset about losing his wife and family that he went to his wifes job, the Pentagon, met her in the parking lot and stabbed her fourteen times with gigantic scissors one more stab and she would have been dead.  This was my first real experience with the peculiar nature of race in the United States and it’s consequences.

My first real insight into men like Diddy came with the reading of  ablack woman’s autobiography.  I thought it was Anne Moody but it’s been so long ago since I read the book I forgot the title of the book but I did not forget the contents.  The writer of the book went into detail about what it was like to be black but almost white in the United States.  She said she met a man married him and fell in love with him but there was a caveat he did not know she was black.  She said she discovered that he thought she was white after they were married when he and his friends started having white women black men parties only.  She said she was shocked at the things that she heard black men saying about black women and then when she went with the white women alone she said she was surprised with what they said about the black men.  She states they said terrible things.  The author of the book finally states that she got fed up with the dinner parties and started screaming my momma is black you better stop talking about black women.  I’m black.  The reaction was her husband beat her up and threw her down the stairs and kicked her out the house.

On the other hand as a brown woman I have been the victim of being not light enough and not black enough. Personally the men who love dark skin women are the creepiest.  They make their discrimination ceremonial.  If you are with a group they will have the darker women at the center of attention, and will drip on her every word.  A perfect example is in one of  John Legend’s live Videos he went out of his way to put a darker skin women on this video.  He grinded all over her publicly he treated her like he was really into her and this was the type of woman he liked.  Actually at the time his girlfriend was not even black.

While Diddy may be irritating he said what he wanted and we know where he’s coming from, the really irritating ones are the pretenders, pretend you like very dark skin women and then you’re caught in the corner with someone totally different.  This is so disappointing.

4 Things You Must Know About the Rihanna Beating

In Afrian American Twitters, African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, black twitters, Black Women Bloggers, celebrities, entertainment, ethnic twitters, female blogger, female bloggers on March 15, 2009 at 5:51 pm

I have been discussing the Chris Brown and Rihanna beating in a vacuum without knowing the true facts of the incident.  There are several things that I have said that have been just wrong and uninformed.  Honestly I have been taking my information concerning Chris Brown and Rihanna from the Television Media and not the online media blogs, newspapers etc that I take political news from.  However I corrected this today by just being nosy and wondering about the 39 year old woman that it is alleged that Chris Brown had an affair with I found out that the Chris Brown and Rihanna incident is horrific.  If everyone is speculating that Chris Brown will one day kill Rihanna the honest truth is he has already attempted to kill her.  With that let’s begin the list of what really happened so we can have an intelligent conversation with children about the incident.  Every parent in Boston should be ashamed that 50% of their teens believe that Rihanna is at fault for what happened to her.  

Here are the supposed Facts that Show Rihanna was in no way responsible for what happened to her.

Fact #1 Chris Brown is Guilty of Attempted Murder

The following two sources are stating that Chris Brown left Rihanna in the middle of the street unconscious bruised and battered. 

The Huffington Post

“He put his hands around her neck and, according to the insider, said, “I’m going to kill you!”

According to the source, the 20-year-old “Disturbia” singer told police that she lost consciousness, and when she awoke, Brown had fled.”

New York Daily News
It was the first time she hit the town since cops found her battered, alone on a dark street and willing to identify Brown as her attacker the morning before the Grammy Awards.

EurWeb

According to the E! Online source, “He reportedly exited the car and tried in vain to find the keys, then grabbed Rihanna’s neck and began choking her, saying, ‘I’m going to kill you!'”

There are no gray areas here.  If Chris Brown choked Rihanna until she was unconscious and left her in the middle of the street unconscious.  He thought he killed her and left her there.  This is without a doubt attempted murder.  While LA is famous for letting women get killed by superstars ie. Phil Spector  and the Actress Lana Clarkson.  Rihanna is a huge superstar and the charges of attempted murder should have been attached to Chris Brown’s name. 

Fact # 2 Rihanna tried to get out of the car, Chris Brown pulled her back in and beat her. 

I am guilty of saying the following about Rihanna could  have gotten out the car.  According to a New York Daily News report Rihanna did get out the car Chris Brown pulled her back in and beat her.

The New York Daily News

Says the Following:

“They started to argue. She got out of the car. He wanted her to get back in, so he grabbed her. She pulled away. That’s when she’s told people he hit her.”

EurWeb Says the following: 

   The Daily News source explained: “She got out of the car. He wanted her to get back in, so he grabbed her. She pulled away. That’s when she’s told people he hit her.”      

Fact #3  Chris Brown had beat Rihanna Before

According to ABC

“If Brown did hit Rihanna early Sunday morning, it might not have been the first time. According to TMZ.com, the 20-year-old pop star told police that Brown had abused her before the weekend attack that reportedly left her bruised and bloodied and that the violence was getting progressively worse. ”

Us Weekly magazine also quoted unnamed sources close to Rihanna who claim this isn’t the first time Brown’s beaten and bruised her.

According to Fox News

” The problem with that, Greta — well, there are several, but one of them is she told cops he did it to her before and it was escalating violence”  

Fact #4 Rihanna is suffering from Battered Wifes Syndrome. “

We all blame Rihanna for going back to Chris Brown but she is suffering from Battered Women’s Syndrome.  This syndrome can ultimately end up in her death as it almost did the night of the Grammys.  There is no where to go but down.  If  Rihanna stays with Chris Brown and he’s not locked up he will eventually kill her. 

Resources for reading up on battered women’s syndrome can be found here: 

Global Oneness Battered Women’s Syndrome

Canadian Medical Journal Battered Wife Syndrome

Finally I’ve done a paper on the Battered Wife syndrome and the thing that any person needs to know is  if a person hits you once in a threatening manner they will hit you again.

 

I am finished with this issue.  I can only pray now. 

 

 

 

 

Rihanna’s Assault Sheds Light on Hip Hops Illusatory Power

In Afrian American Twitters, African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, african american twitters, black blogger, black bloggers, black twitters, Black Women Bloggers, celebrities, entertainment, ethnic twitters, female blogger, female bloggers on March 14, 2009 at 8:48 am

Hip Hoppers are fond of imitating Gangsters in their videos.  Some even imitate the Italian Mafia.  However with the recent beating of Rihanna by Chris Brown.  Many are questioning the depth and the breadth of Hip Hops ability to be self policing and in the least have the ruthlessness to control star talents such as Chris Brown who not only harm  his bottom line when he beats up women but harm the whole industry.  Actions such as P Diddy in inviting Chris Brown to his home after Rihannas beating further shed light on the falseness of the ruthlessness facade of toughness and Gangsterism.

If the Black Hip Hop world were truly like the mafia the consequences of beating such a big star and money maker as Rihanna would have resulted in swift justice for Chris Brown such as a broken leg or in the least a black eye.  Instead the woman ended up with the black eye almost fueling fire to the homoeroticism rumours swirling around hip hop artists.  Furthermore Rihannas mentor though issuing lip service to his disgust concerning the incident  seemed to be powerless to do anything substantial before the publicly aired beating or after.  The manner in which Rihanna quickly returned to Chris Brown leads me to believe that this was not Rihanna’s first time being beat at the hands of  Chris Brown.  If this is true this further sheds light on the weak individuals that are in the hip hop industry and are Rihanna’s friends and lovers.   Even if Rihanna  chooses to go back to Chris Brown it seems like someone in the tough guy hip hop industry does not have the balls to tell Chris Brown if you hit her one more time you’re going to be gone from this earth.  It just goes to show cash does not always translate into power.

A southern father in a small town has more power than these wealthy hip hoppers.  In my early twenties I took a cross country trip on the greyhound bus and sat next to a man who had just gotten out of jail.  He wanted to talk and seemed to think that he had been framed by a southern gentlemen because he cheated on his daughter.  He seemed to think someone had planted drugs in his car and sent him off to jail for three years making Bob Barker shoes.  Whether this story was true or not this Southern Father did what it took to defend his daughters honor.  In the meanwhile hip hoppers are getting Prissy on the runway and kissing each other in the mouth.  You know who you are.  They seem to have forgotten who the girl is.  Are they beating on women to indicate to their secret lovers that the straight life is just a facade.

I have learned something about Anderson Cooper, whenever the producers of his show decide to air something controversial or distasteful that he does not want to be associated with he manages to not be on his own show Anderson Cooper 360 and hands the dirt bag to Soledad Obrien who as far as black people go will say anything distasteful, stereotypical or just plain out rotten about black people that she thinks will make her career.  Well the last Anderson Cooper showed Soledad at her best in stereotyping Black Women. I also had to wonder as I watched the piece if Soledad had just swam across from Cuba, as she seemed totally unaware of the strides that black women have made outside of being someones wife.   I had to wonder if Soledad had ever heard of Dr. Condeleeza Rice, on leave from Provost of Stanford University and current Secretary of State.  The world has, but alas poor soledad must be suffering a  language barrier.  I am still wondering why she hasn’t done a piece on Hispanics yet, I think Latin America is having a really rotten drug war that’s resulting in a loss of lives.  I would be interested in seeing this issue covered.  I am concerned that the drug war may come over the border.

In any event, last night the gremlin resembling Soledad Obrien did a piece on black women and how Michelle Obama will elevate black women and how they the world sees black women and how they see themselves.  As a women maybe ten years younger or more  than Soledad Obrien, I had to think that her piece was hackneyed and not very current. As usual Soledad Obrien’s information was totally biased and badly researched.  The miltimedia headlights included “Medea” and some other man who dresses as a woman in the piece, big fat women rolling around the screen, and children hollering.  Evidently the producer of the piece is not aware that Medea is a man. The producer is also not aware that Tyler Perry tries to highlight Medea’s positive qualities and Medea is a satire on African Americans. It’s not a stereotype but almost a look at the past and maybe while some of us may not be like that “anymore” or have ever been like that, we may need to be like this in some ways is Tyler Perry’s message is.   If anyone is familiar with the literature of Lindon Hills by Gloria Naylor who writes fiction on black class and status issues, they will notice the thread of Linden Hills a book by Naylor in Perry’s Work.  Naylor essentially says in Linden hills by having the rich people live at the bottom of the hill and the poor at the top the higher they (Striving blacks) climb, the further they fall in terms of morals, family life,relation to God etc.   I think Tyler Perry tries to draw the same parallel. Unless you have an extremely low IQ I don’t think that Perry expects viewers of his movies to think that his movies are real life and MEdea is a real woman.

Soledad had one Newsweek pundit saying society stereotypes black women as street walkers and drug addicts.  The show also gave statistics on black women and obesity.  She also conveniently mentioned blacks and skin color and how Michelle Obama’s dark skin would raise the esteem of dark skin people.   She mentioned Beyonce and Hallie Berry as sex symbols and said we had no dark skin sex symbols.  I think Angela Basset, Janet Jackson, Alliyah, Erykah Badu and Rihanna qualify for me as women who are brown or do not have traditional European features. I think girlfriends, produced by Kelsey Grammar who was a McCain supporter presents a multi colored cast of sexy African American women.  Finally Soledad did an interview with Faye Waddeldon and said that Michelle Obama elevates the possibility of what black women can do. Personally while having a law degree and a job is commendable, as a woman I respect women who go to the top of their professions not who just perform the act of acquiring , for Barack or Michelle Obama even a brief before the Supreme Court would have earned a tremendous amount of respect from me.  As for Faye Waddledon I remember Faye Waddledon from when I was ten years old, Pre-Cosby.   The world has changed a lot in those years.  Has she done any new research in twenty years she’s still saying the same thing she said twenty years ago.     HUH”””””””””””” I suppose Condoleeza Rice was not the first female National Security adviser and the first Black Female Secretary of State.   Black Women have already been elevated and the Republican Party did it.  The same people attacking black women are the same people who attacked and are attacking Sarah Palin.  They hate women.  They do not love Michelle Obama, they are attempting to compensate for her lack by attacking black women.  They are attempting to build her up by comparing her with a social problem.  All I want Michelle to do is comb her hair, put on a suit, and keep her children’s hair neatly combed and done at all times.  This is not rocket science, the women who are the targets of CNN’s piece do it well all the time, maybe they would be more suited to the role of First Lady rather than a Harvard trained Attorney.  Michelle’s job is First Lady (WIFE)  lets just pray she can take care of her ceremonial duties without a hell to Oblivion dress on, let’s hope she knows how to be a good wife and mother if she can do this she would have met the criteria for the job of First Lady.  There is no degree requirement for First Lady!

In the the year 2009 America will be celebrating a ground breaking event, it’s first Black President.  Unfortunately what CNN has failed to realize on a recent report on  Michelle Obama and how she breaks the mold of Black women is that this historic election of a black man in the white house was done step by step and partially shattered by the positive media examples of black women and men in the media.  Personally I believe the presence of a smart articulate black woman such as Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice was critical to Barack  Obama becoming President.  When the United States had no idea what was happening in the Bush Administration Condi, Secretary of State was able to explain to us in a graceful, feminine, kindly way what was going on in the world.  In the Bush administration Condi was our light.

In any event the most ground breaking thing that a black women did this year for me was make a video.  I am a horror buff.  I just love the movie Silent Hill as well as Hostel.    So when I saw the following video by Rihanna since I rarely see black people in a horror genre I was thrilled.

This is ground breaking to me (it says something about please click on a link thanks, I have not clicked on the link and do not know where it leads, as far as this blog is concerned please do not click on anything other than the youtube play icon.):




Beyonce Knocks Janet out of the #1 Slot of All Time Best R&B & Pop Musician

In beyonce, entertainment on November 5, 2008 at 5:33 pm

Beyonce has released two songs and videos that I will be listening to and watching for years to come. It’s taken a long time for someone to replace Janet in my mind and I know Beyonce is not new but these two new songs might put Janet in my mind to the position of number two as The Best Female R&B Pop Star in my mind and Beyonce as #1 The Queen!

All The Single Ladies


If you like it then put a ring on it.  Beyonce is giving lessons in this video on how to make him like it.  With this video a girl Does not have to wonder what she needs to do to keep her man from awandering, a must hear but definitely a must see!  See Below as long as it’s on You Tube!  Girls Look and Learn and don’t forget!  A Free Lesson courtesy of Beyonce!

“If I Were A BOY”

I had to watch this video twice to get it.  Lesson kind of gotten but she is just lot hotter than her man, and the man that plays opposite of her when she’s a boy for a day is just a lot hotter than the woman cop her man is riding with.  You decide:

*The Video links will work as long as you tube allows them to.

If The Following Lyrics are not Degrading Usher You Answer this Question

In Abortion, AIDS, celebrities on June 12, 2008 at 3:17 pm

This blog posting is dedicated to the Usher the singer and his New Family!

Was your first child conceived under the following circumstances? 

Lyrical Highlights of Make Love In Da Club as Sung By Usher Raymond

Refrain Repeated over and over throughout the song is the following:

I wanna make love in this club eh
in this club eh
in this club eh
I wanna make love in this club eh.
in this club eh
in this club eh
in this club yeah

You see you searching for somebody that’ll take you out and do you right.
Well come here baby and let daddy show you what it feel like.

Above translated

“We’ve talked and you’ve told me that you want to meet a nice guy that will treat you decently”


You know all you gotta do is tell me what your sipping on (sipping on)? Eh
And I promise that I’ma keep it coming all night looooooooong.

Above Translated

“I’m pretending to hear you and will possibly make you think I’m a nice guy as indicated by “eh”but what I’m really going to do is get you drunk so that I can get in your panties.

Have you ever made love to a thug in a club with his sights on, 87 jeans and a fresh pair of nikes on. On the couch, on the table, on the bar, on the floor.
you can meet me in the bathroom, ya you know im trained to go.

“I don’t need to translate this”

You might just wanna give me a kiss, we can keep touching like this
I know you scared baby, because you don’t know what we doing.
It’s ok, you can touch right here, keep doing that girl and I swear.
I’ma keep doing it to you non-stop.
And I dont care, who’s watching watching watching watching watching Oooooh In this club on the floor
Baby lets make love

“No need for Translation”

In this club Ehh YeY Hey Hey
Thats right in the front in the front in the peak of the day Hey
In the back Hey In the side Hey
In the front Hey
Left, right Oh crank that Hey

Translation

”   ‘he words In this club Ehh YeY Hey Hey,’ indicate that someone is saying that this is ludicrous.  You can’t possibly mean have sex in a club , The following words indicate yes, whereever, whenever as well as describe what the singer plans to do with his penis with the women in question, personally I’ve seen the video and the women type casted for the video would not possibly do what’s described unless and a big unless there was an exchange of  money, that type of women in my humble opinion is not going to lay on the floor  in a club and give it away for free, even to Usher, Luda, or -50.   “

End of Lyrics

I have the following words for Usher Raymond just because you have ruined your life by getting a married women ten years your senior with four children pregnant which lead to the dissolution of her marriage and your marrying her resulting in your first born child and her fifth born child.  Definitely nothing close to a virginal birth for your child, this does not give you the right to sing lyrics that can result in unplanned pregnancies for  young women and responsible young men, I say responsible to indicate that there are some men who if they have sex with a stranger in a club who might give the women  he had sex with his real name, phone number, address, tell her where  he works, and where he was born etc. so that if  the women in question does get pregnant or an STD she knows where to find him.  However, I really don’t believe that this song was written or sung for this type of man.  This song is for men who want to get off and leave and never see the women again and not get caught.  This song is written for men who will give a women a fake name, fake phone number, and fake address.  Finally if the women is dumb enough to have sex in a club with a stranger, she’s probably dumb enough or drunk enough to end up pregnant and or diseased and have no clue as to who the father is of her child or what kind of disease she may have. 

Trust me if a young woman wants to know what will get a normal man and I’ve spoken to a lot of woman with wonderful marriages and I am not one of them.  The bottom line from every woman I’ve met with a good long lasting marriage is don’t sleep with a man before you are married.  This is true, I know from experience that if you don’t have sex with a man, if you barely kiss him but continue to date him and be nice to him he will ask you to marry him.  Unfortunately, men if a woman barely kisses you after dating for months , you should not ask her to marry you because the bottom is she does not really like you, and no I did not marry this person because I did not like him.  But it works!!!!!!

Finally I am an Atlantan and this artist hails from Atlanta this is essentially a southern worldview.   This is probably why the majority of men that I’ve dated and the man that I did eventually marry was from California.  Though Snoop Dog is from Southern California and we know it never rains in Southern California, give me a sensual seduction anyday over a roll in a nasty southern corner.  WEST COAST ROCKS
