Side-Eyeing Daniele Watts

Side-Eyeing Daniele Watts

Daniele Watts, a black actress who was in Django Unchained, was recently detained by police officers in Los Angeles (Studio City) and wrote a Facebook message about it alleging that the cops thought she was a prostitute simply because she was with a white man. But on the 8th day, God made TMZ and the truth.

Black “Respectability” Is a Myth

Black “Respectability” Is a Myth

When will we stop the lie that black people were just more respectable back then? Maybe they were publicly, depending on where they lived, but black people have not always been on the same page with “respectability” just so that we uplift ourselves and white people will like us more

Why I Stayed – My Abusive Relationship (Part 2)

He grilled me about my life choices, ambition, and educational aspirations all before the food came. No answer I gave was good enough and any questions about why this was important was met with “I have my reasons. That’s all you need to know.” He told me that I was lazy on most things…

Why I Stayed – My Abusive Relationship (Part 1)

Many women wanted his number to keep in touch, but no one got a number, but he got all of our email addresses. Some of us provided resumes to him for potential jobs, but I wanted more. He stopped all contact with the women but emailed me back. I won!

Ferguson Almost Made Me Slip – Part 2

I guess this is a personal post as well as an update of my emotional state linked to events in Ferguson and my life. I feel like I’m crawling back, but the Lord might actually be carrying me. We’ll see how it goes. I plan to show up, though, and see.

Should Gay Christians Be Celibate? NOPE!

Should Gay Christians Be Celibate? NOPE!

If a gay person desires celibacy because of their commitment to God (while waiting for someone or while just waiting for God to call them home years from now), that’s up to them and I support that as a conscious decision. I don’t support celibacy being the only option that remains for a gay person to prove their Christianity just because straight Christians can’t handle a gay person being gay.

Episode 49 | We Don’t Love These Hoes

This past Friday in Isla Vista, California, 22 year old Elliot Rodger killed 6 people and injured 13 more in a racist and misogynistic spree. This was the tipping point for me to talk about something that has been on my mind for a while – talking about how we don’t respect women as a society, nation, and world.

Ray Rice Knocked Out His Wife & Got Away With It

I hope the NFL pushes the Ravens to get rid of Ray Rice. I was disappointed that my Ravens lost yesterday to the Cincinnati Bengals, of all teams, and I hope they know that ‘til they do right by Janay and other domestic violence victims, every Super Bowl thing they think about gon’ fail.

I felt okay aside from back problems and XL shirts fitting too tightly. Then the elevators at work would do that “reset” thing whenever I stepped on board. Oh, and there was the problem of sweating after bending over and coming back up. Lest I forget the time I tried to have someone carry me and almost broke their back. Finally, I remember the many, many times I would reject someone because they weren’t fit enough and I wondered why I would attract someone like that when I didn’t look like that (obese).

The Nonviolent Movement Helped & Hurt Blacks – Part 2

The Nonviolent Movement Helped & Hurt Blacks – Part 2

| August 28, 2014 | 0 Comments

Nonviolence overlaid itself onto the black race and didn’t allow us any nuance that other racial movements had. I’m not advocating shooting people dead to get a point across, but a show of legally owned firearms could send a message that you aren’t to be messed with. (It worked for white people defending that racist Cliven Bundy in Nevada.

The Nonviolent Movement Helped & Hurt Blacks – Part 1

| August 27, 2014 | 0 Comments

I have problems with the nonviolent movement that lead to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The movement led to some changes in law, but it seems like black people as a race became either tired after arriving, less vigilant, or – and this is a hated black people descriptor – lazy.

When I get in a bad mood and don’t pray about it, I’m prone to messing up (sinning) and seeking affection from some dangerous (for me) places. Now, if you want to know if I fell, slipped, and tripped…I came close.
