Just Thinking –


I have been exposed to diversity all of my life but over the last 10 years I have reshifted my focus towards my OWN community. Was it right? No? Did I feel that I had just cause? Yes – the way that the COMMUNITY acts towards one another from within the COMMUNITY left me no choice but to mentally – physically – emotionally – financially – and sometimes even spiritually from the community.

However, after seeing a movie on August 20, 2013 and it changed me in a way that I scared even myself – I love PEOPLE in general and watching history take place and unfold in front of me on a big screen with total silence in the room ( minus a few parts of a movie that may have been edited for viewing ) still made me become aware of emotions that I had NO IDEA I had the ability to even feel towards another person. However – after the movie was over – I went to go and “speak to myself” and purge what I was feeling –

Although I ONLY spoke for about 10 minutes – I still felt as if I indeed had soo much MORE to say – but I was TERRIFIED how it would actually leave from my lips – Black History has a great deal of blemishes in it….. but it cannot be ERASED but it can be used as a tool of how WE ALL CAN do better and promote and push for LOVE AND EQUALITY – Did I get upset? Yes, Did I cry? YES, Did I become bitter? No, Did I pause and re-evaluate my friendships of anyone who is white in my life? Yes.

Did it change my views of them? NO!!  Ugghhh!! Racism is ugly …

Now that I am BETTER and I have CALMED myself down – I feel great – I feel good – I feel free – I feel blessed – I feel strong – I feel different – I feel worthy – I feel accomplished – I feel valued – I feel blessed – I feel invincible – I feel beautiful – I am just honored that I can EVEN FEEL ANYTHING –

The Television Networks –

Have we gone too far? It’s a question we ask at the outset of every outrageous new reality series—be it “Survivor” or “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” It’s also usually an early sign of a show’s success.How reality TV hurts girls

But response to a new show teased as part of Oxygen Media‘s spring lineup, seems to mark a momentous moment when reality has truly jumped the shark. Collective and largely unchallenged outrage over the network’s upcoming show “All My Babies‘ Mamas” is the unusual case of a show sparking enough controversy to potentially kill it.

“All My Babies’ Mamas,” a one-hour reality special slated to air in the spring of 2013, features Carlos “Shawty Lo” Walker, an Atlanta-based hip-hop artist with 11 children by 10 different women. Oh, he’s also got a 19-year-old girlfriend, who’s a year shy of his oldest child.

Everyone is upset at the TV NETWORKS for showing these types of shows…. BUT I am siding with the TV NETWORKS…. they are in it for profit only right? So their take on it is they need WILLING PARTICIPANTS to even make a sure and to bring in ratings…

So if people would find some morals..stances..beliefs….ethics….and values then soo  many networks would not be able to make millions of dollars on the stupidity of women…..kids and silly males!

Dont fight the networks and boycott…. why not find out who the actors are or the reality tv people and boycott outside of their homes!

Most reality shows are a political money making mess! Dont want the tv networks to make any more ghetto shows? STOP WATCHING THEM because the ratings tell them that DYSFUNCTION is what sells!!!! Just like music sells shows the music industry that SEX AND VIOLENCE sells! Stop being apart of the problem and finally take a stand to be apart of the solution!!! Stop complaining and do something!

Today’s Wow Moment –


I am not a huge Oprah #FAN but I really thought that this was very interesting….. I think that it maybe a little “safe to say” that she ONLY replied back, due to the negativity of the comment!
