Post racial America was just a dream…the return of hate

Memories are short, then again thanks to technology we are living at warp speed. Captain Kirk would be rather impressed at our array of gadgets and while we still haven’t quite made it to Jetsons style living. The world we now live in is a vastly different place than it was just 20-30 years ago. […]

The evil one, so they believe

I have been staying away from any hardcore discussion of politics since there are so many bloggers that handle it far better than I am capable of…but with the midnight resignation of Van Jones ( ex-green czar) and the hoopla surrounding President Obama’s speech planned for today to the nation’s schoolchildren. I felt it was […]

Burnt Out

Maybe it’s because the dialogue around the health care issue is starting to get ugly (when will folks just get real and say the issue is the fact that a Black man is in charge? Quit pussyfooting around) or maybe its because work is getting crazy…in any event I am in a rare place where I […]

Rules, manners, protocol…

I find that when I write about world events my readership drops off, its all good, by my own admission I am a lightweight when it comes to commenting on world affairs but by the same token, its my blog so I write what I feel… That said, what is the deal with folks blasting […]

They don’t know what to do

So I woke up this morning and as usual was listening to NPR and the discussion was focused on President Obama signing this massive stimulus package. On the surface that may sound like a good deal after all, at this point everyone agrees that the economy is in shambles and needs some help like yesterday. […]

You must quit

Barack Obama and I share a vice, we are both smokers in a time where smoking is seen as a really bad thing. Like Barry (can I you that Mister Prez-Elect?) I have tried quitting. In the past I have gone a few years without quitting but life will throw me a curve ball and […]

Gone Fishing

That’s what the sign says on the Oak Hill General Store in Standish Maine, after it became national news that the owner of this fine establishment was found to be hosting a betting pool on when President Elect Barack Obama would be assassinated. However as a Black chick in Maine while I am disturbed as hell […]

Its starting

I must admit in the weeks leading up to the election, as a Black woman living in Maine, I was wondering what would be the impact on average Black folks like myself in places like Maine if Obama won. Well the time has come, I no longer have to wonder because he won and reality […]

Haters gotta hate

To quote or perhaps paraphrase my boy Katt Williams “Haters gotta hate, that’s they motherfucking job.”  See today I was continuing to walk around in the afterglow of Obama’s win, yet I knew some punk ass bitch was going to say or do something that smacked me back to the fact that America is still […]

He did it!!!!

Last night as the numbers started to trickle in, when Obama initially just had 3 electoral votes to McCain’s 8, for a brief moment, I thought shit, they will not let this man win. I got discouraged, yet as we all know now, things quickly changed, yet in the back of my mind, I kept thinking […]
