Another Heart STOPPER –

Okay – I attend the movies at LEAST twice a week and  when there is ANY TYPE of historical movie that deals with this country via politics AND black history / civil rights …..I DASH him to the movie theater to view it. Okay I have had a tough day folks – My son even had to hug me a few times and hold my hands……….. History is important in general but for my son being an African American boy in these good ole United States, it is IMPERATIVE that he knows.

The more recent black history type movies that I have taken him to see were movies as –

The Help….( My son was very irritated when we were walking out of the movie theater )

The Butler.. ( My son had very mixed emotions & was trying to compare life now vs then via black men )

12 Years of Slave….( My son was in such SILENT SHOCK basically during the whole movie )

Nonetheless, seeing The Help allowed me to REMIND myself of why I act the way that I do in certain situations when I am around “certain types” of white women ………..  The Butler made me honor and respect black men even the more….and 12 Years A Slave …………Welp, – unfortunately for me – I am STILL trying to “get myself together” in the worse way – it is 9 pm at night and I took him to see this movie at 1 pm this afternoon! So please pray for my mind and my emotions….. God knows that I am soooooooo serious right now –

I mean – although sadly……blacks have been in slavery for a little over 400 years – it still made me think of the racism that still goes on today for blacks – ESPECIALLY black men –

It made me feel bad for stereotyping and racial profiling that I do even myself – however – although that those behaviors are indeed WRONG……but before I make myself out to be this bad black woman who discriminates against her own kind – I get upset because “my own kind” have to fight to not only get it together….BUT also keep it together…

Yes we can CLEARLY see that the white men and women years ago played the main blame in slavery BUT we are in 2013 and things are not the way that they used to be…MEANING – I do not like hearing that EVERYTHING “is the white man’s fault”… I have heard that since the late 80’s and I am wondering why I am STILL hearing it.  The white man did not STOP EVERYONE AND EVERY DREAM that the African American people have or may had.

We have to be honest and LOOK around and LOOK from within and ask ourselves…..are we helping each other get ahead? Sadly, there is only a very small number / percentage of African Americans who even care about the American Dream….let alone will fight to even achieve it.

Truth be told… I want to know how many are going to school…. caring about their grades instead of truancy behaviors………. are the favorite subjects in school gym time or science….are we becoming parents too young……if so are we good parents….are we pulling up our pants…are we selling stolen goods….are we being disrespectful to our parents and teachers……are we choosing to have a library card instead of a gun…… are we interested in studying medicine instead of selling medicine……

With all that Mr. Solomon Northup  (real name of the man who was MADE a slave) went through AFTER being a slave for 12 years – he lived the rest of his life fighting for change – he did not choose to be a murderer because he was dealt a wrong hand….he didn’t become a thief ..he didn’t become a womanizer because of the 12 years of no sex etc..etc.etc.. LIFE CAN HURT A LOT OF TIMES….. Life can really give you the choice to give up hope – but it is all about what you believe…. can things get better? Do not worry about when – just believe that they will. Thanking God for people like Brad Pitt ( the part that he played in the movie ) who UNDERSTOOD that slavery was wrong and he risked his own life to make a difference with the start of 1 MAN named Solomon Northup –

Uggghhh – the movie did and still has me a little ticked off but it is HISTORY….it is apart of MY HISTORY – I embrace it …will learn MORE from it….. and find ways to make things better for me – my family – my people.

Thanks for listening –

Sooo Inappropriate for a 12 yr old –


I can see it now….. I am NOT speaking as if I would want a 12-year-old little girl to go down the wrong path but….seriously the lyrics of this girl’s song and the company that she is keeping in the video, as well as how she is dressed, the piercings, tattoos etc… I get allowing your children to “start the process’ of discovering who they are…. but this is like Baby, DO YOU! However, I see her mom Jada Pinkett Smith when I see Willow –

Hey, do not take MY WORD for it – view the video yourself…..

Yes!!!! Everyone does parent differently and come from different backgrounds..however, if she is permitted to “discover herself ” too early what will she be like when she turns 16? By the way, that is STILL young too!

QUESTION – Why is a 12 year old child singing about a summer fling? What would they know about the word fling? uuggghh..

I unfortunately also see a little Rhianna MIXED with Lady Gaga transforming before my very eyes….. Well, sex early..drugs….scandal..tabloids..GET READY because for her to be 12 years old and already experiencing so many things as well as a overly spoiled HOLLYWOOD child…things dont look to good.

MY Sports Headache –


Okay I was just watching the news and I thought that my EARS were clogged because I heard on my television set that, a professional hockey player signed a contract TODAY in the amount of 76 MILLION DOLLARS to “””””” play””””””” a SPORT and if he promises to play for the Pittsburgh Penguins for 8 years he SHALL get 76 MILLION DOLLARS!!!!

Hate to say this but I see HOW AND WHY these women turn themselves into groupies “hoping to be” a girlfriend and eventually their wives – but hey making 10 million dollars A YEAR, I see why there are soooo many paternity cases within the professional sports industry! Geesh! The politics behind sports indeed involves, cash, sex, lies, talent, fans and business owners! Great Potlock!

Interesting Words From Andy Rooney!


 Remember Andy Rooney from the CBS Sunday Evening Show called 60 Minutes? Well here is an interesting set of views from him – ( LOL )

 

Andy Rooney’s thoughts on women over forty:As I grow in age, I value women who are over forty most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over forty will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, “What are you thinking?…” She doesn’t care what you think.

If a woman over forty doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it’s usually something more interesting.

A woman over forty knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of forty give a hoot what you might think about her or what she’s doing.

Women over forty are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.

A woman over forty has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn’t trust the guy with other women. Women over forty couldn’t care less if you’re attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won’t betray her.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over forty. They always know.

A woman over forty looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over forty is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one! You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over forty for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of forty-plus, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some twenty-two-year-old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free,” here’s an update for you. Now 80 percent of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little sausage.

Music and Symbols


Being a Christian….you have to be aware of a variety of things. However, watching this 36 minute video did not shock me ……but the little things that did forced me to pay attention to EVERY little detail now.

The symbols used even in cartoons but the one I even used to watch years ago called The Simpsoms, I just “did not catch” the satanic signs and symbols. The other cartoon called the Boondocks, I never watched it or would have a desire to, you can tell that it is a very repulsive cartoon.
