Politics

Really?


Trust me…I am ALL for Marketing and Public Relations etc.. but I am wise enough to know that when I am doing more than “pushing the envelope”…… This was total disrespect for this company to even think that these TYPE of shoes would sell!

I said to myself wow – this is my favorite shoe company, track and running company, dress down clothes company… GEESH…

Thank goodness that they obtained TONS OF BACKLASH from more than half the African American basketball players in the NBA and the company of Adiddas has PULLED the shoes off the shelves and will no longer comtinue with production! All this negative impact because they are trying to chase that mighty dollar! I WONDER how the Jewish Community would feel if they made gas chambers and placed them in the Hamptons, high end area in New York City and called them “steam rooms” but placed the words ” For Jewish People Only”….. hmm…. Now you see where I am coming from!!!!!!!

Please do understand that I do know that for companies to try to even attempt to PUSH THE ENVELOPE is because they have done edgy things before……these shoes would have sold to a few kids due to their TOTAL IGNORANCE. To kids / teenagers they see the shoe as NEW AND INNOVATIVE but if someone called them a slave they may have flipped out. However, I would ask them why are they getting so upset when they are using STYLE to stay in bondage and wear shackles on their legs?

Mary – Mary sings….take the shackles off my feet so I can dance!…I just want to PRAISE HIM! This shoe was designed for the “urban culture” in mind! We can agree on that right?

The marketing and creative department needs to take a class on SENSITIVITY TRAINING – as soon as possible! Everything is political in this world because although by taking a huge RISK and making this shoe, they figured that since slavery happened years ago that this “would be” alright…..

NOPE! It is 2012 going on 2013 and it STILL IS NOT okay! I do not care if the maker of the shoe was black, white, asian, indian, creole etc..etc..etc.. they just did not totally think through this “big great idea” that they felt that they had! However, shame on the MARKETING REP’S for even giving the “go ahead” to produce the shoe and ship them to the shoe stores!

Inspiration

Downloading Apps!


 Camera ZOOM FX  Product Details    

We are indeed living in an “app addicted” world if you own a cell phone…. There are “apps” for ALMOST everything! There is even an app for you to send information if you feel that you are being “racially profiled” in the airport by the TSA!!!

However, watch what apps that you download because sometimes not only do they attempt to wiggle person information from your phone but also via the sites that you have visited.

WordPress and other blogging sites have allowed people to create apps and  apply them to the Google – Android market and consumers can download them. Nonetheless, I have learned the hard way that some of these “verbage editing and word recognition apps” replaces words that are MAINLY USED in today’s society!

        

I had did a post and stated the phrase ” an itching ear ” and the app allowed my phrase to say ” a bitching ear” PLEASE EXCUSE the language because I surely DO NOT USE PROFANITY! Even when I was NOT a Christian woman – I never cussed. Well wait… let me take that back… I used to say words like ” hell and dam” and I even thought that was HORRIBLE language coming out of the mouth of a female.

Welp, I said all of this to say that if you have EVER read any post from me lately, please know that language is not condoned by me and does not display my character. I have gone through a few post and deleted a few things already but MY CONCERN IS that the people that follow my post DID NOT EVEN MENTION IT!

Hope ever...

That shocked me because I blog about My Family….My life in Ministry… God…..My Political Views….Relation – Friend – ships…..and Women’s Issues… and using profanity is not the FLOW OF THIS BLOG!! I wonder why no one even questioned it…. So that allowed me to think that they must be used to CHRISTIANS  saying one thing and doing another..

Because if there was a blog that I followed and the man or woman was DISPLAYING Christian values….Christian living etc..etc.. I would sure nuff post  a comment asking them …” HEY!!! What is going on with the content of your blog today?”….. 

Well wait…… then again I do not know  my supporters reasons on why they follow this blog SPECIFICALLY. It is my desire because I am saying / sharing things that are productive, helpful and connects with them in some form of common ground in this life that we all live in.

Women's Stuff

Special Note to “Some” Women


W -O – M -E -N …………  O -P – E – N   ……………….   Y – O- U– R  …………….. E – Y – E – S

Women in leadership roles…. via ministry as well as being a wife…..  UGGHH… being dominate isnt the answer!

Realize the man is the head and learn how to utilize your role to uplift him… (if you love him)

Understand that submission is an attitude not a cave man mentality syndrome…

Respect that a man needs to feel wanted…..remember they have pride

Re – evaluate your understanding of authority so you can stay in your own lane

Via ministry….. it is VERY EASY – EXTREMELY EASY – DISGUSTINGLY EASY for women to get pumped up…

First of all…. right now in the church – the NEED for “bodies” is at an all time high that a lot of people will tell you anything to get you into a position and pump the ego that you NEVER HAD BEFORE to keep you there!

Wisdom will tell you to pray and study the man before you jump off the deep end “assuming” that you are more equipped / knowledgable / more spiritually mature than your mate. Even if it is not your mate….it can be your brother…father…friend… etc.

 Cool Glitterz

Just support them!!!! Being a man in this world has enough of its own challenges…..and if the man is a minority – whew you really need to be a tad bit more sensitive!!! Be a lady and enjoy your role so he can flow in his with EASE!

Let men be men without you telling them what to do…. find wisdom ways to help show them.. (that’s better than telling them) even if we are right 95 percent of the time ( LOL ) let them feel as if they are right and figured it out all by themselves!

Anyway… back to leaders who tell you how wonderful you are and called of God!! LOL They are not worried so much about your destiny…your calling…your purpose etc.. and if you notice…….. women seem to be the TARGETS of getting their egos pumped more so than men! Women are emotional and if they have not been “properly affirmed” they will FALL FOR THE FEATHERLY WORDS that are spoken to them.

Due to the fact that a great deal of men have not been on their post spiritually / ministerally……..it has called the outburst of women to come to the forefront in ministry. Which IS NOT A BAD THING…. but like everything else… there should always be balance right!

Women preaching like men….women wanting to be ruler over men in the workplace…..in the pulpit….in the home….in the board room etc…etc..etc….  it is okay for us to be strong but not tough… I think it is so unbecoming!

ok im done!
