Although he did this VOLUNTARILY but he did not know what he was getting into….. I can think of other ways PERSONALLY to make the world or at least parts of it knowledgable of things that are done RIGHT or WRONG ….
without ME experiencing traumatic events like this – kudos to Mos Def for doing this and I am glad that they REALLY SHOWED how he broke down and could not continue on with this process…. being a soldier who is TRAINED to deal with this type of stuff and become numb to it..sets them up as an EMOTIONAL BASKETCASE when they return home to their families…
When you are trained everyday to NOT SHOW EMOTIONS – trust me it spills out onto other things in your life regardless if you are no longer in the military or not – this type of behavior cannot be turned on and off like a light switch because if it could…..there wouldnt be so many post traumatic stress cases within our social service and veteran hospitals today –
America is something……. I don’t know what “that something” is yet…
OKAY ALREADY!!! I already have a “hard time” with so many “overly” urban slangs…..dress codes….laws….etc..etc..etc.. However, why is it totally alright to interview a world leader with a huge urban hat on your head? I am almost 100% percent sure that the INTERVIEWER may have been advised to wear something to COVER UP his multiplicity of MASSIVE dread lock collection that moves out of control on his head However, with a suit on and an upgraded version of a MIX BETWEEN a doo – rag and a baseball cap still is not appropriate – if he is Muslim, wear a turban but he isnt.. so that is I guess – indeed my point…
Should I care? Maybe…..maybe not – but I am just so over people as well as our current president being OVERLY way too cool about everything! Then with the whole White House ” cute joke ” with the 2012 Summer Olympic Gymnast was just soo should NOT have been posted in the media! You can do all of the “inside jokes” that he wants to but does it ALL have to hit the media?
I dont want the world leader being known for listening to gangster rap either! If he likes Jay – Z and rapper 50 cent, that is FINE and his choice BUT can we keep that on the hush? Ummm maybe because in their lyrics they are calling women bit___ and hoes?… I mean really… especially since HE THINKS so highly of his lovely wife Lady Michelle Obama and he adores his two little girls? Oh yeah… Beyonce is very beautiful but her attire and some of her lyrics as well are not suitable for little girls, right Mr and Mrs Obama? Try NOT to share every little detail please! Maybe Beyonce can teach your daughter what the meaning of ” A Hustler ” is… it is one of her songs and I am SURE that you would not mind because Beyonce is a role model for both of yor daughters… So MENTOR AWAY!!!
Maybe I am crazy huh? Stop being ” soo cool” and start being ” soo respected”….. I want A WORLD LEADER to be respected and not just ” deemed as being cool and having swag”….UUUGGGHHH!!
Owuor told the Kenyan news outlet her sons’ names will always remind her of the election in the United States.
Residents of Kogelo emphatically celebrated Obama’s victory as results from the United States were reported.
Shouts of “Hail our Kogelo son” and “Obama is coming, open the road for him” rang through the air as locals blew vuvuzelas horns in celebration, the Standard reports.
“If Obama did not win, I believe most projects here would stall,” Joseph Onyango told the Kenyan media outlet.
Kenyans hope Obama’s reelection will harken a fresh start with U.S. relationships with Kenya, Reuters reports.
Obama visited sub-Saharan Africa just once during his first four years – a stop of less than a day in Ghana, according to Reuters.
If Obama does visit Kenya, maybe baby Barack can meet his namesake, and baby Mitt meet the U.S. President.
Interesting how wording, dress attire, handshakes, food, eye contact, and gestures can have TOTALLY different meaning!
