All my single ladies Part II

I am a single black women and they say are standards are to high and we should lower them, I wouldnt say lower them but compromise. Okay i have nothing against interacial dating i am for it when it comes to me. But not all black women are and they should not be chastise for it. Becuase they dont want to date outside their race, why should they have too? Not all of us are chasing the athletes and rappers. It seems to me there is alot of finger pointing going on basically saying its our fault lets look at the big picture here.

Our men see us as:
-Hard to deal with
-Not submissive enough
-Too many issues.
-They say we are materialistic
-We dont know how to keep a man
-Some of us have to many children (i wonder why that is)
-Were more worried about careers then taking care of our men
-We dont listen

Everything listed above are some of the reason why black women are single according to black male bloggers. So those list of items is why i am single...Hmm that is a crock of shit. I am single becuase i am not going to settle on any man and no my standards arent too high. For the simple fact i work in customer service and make didly squat so wanting a baller is not the object of my affection. That not even a realistic goal. I am single becuase my priorities needs to be in better place. Do I want to have a successful career? Hell to the yeah, Would i like to settle down with a man? Yes I would. Its all about choices and to be honest for a black female living in a black communtity our choices are limited it may suck to here that fellas but its true.

They say us black women limited ourselves how can we not becuase in todays black culture our black men limit there potential to be and do better. So as a people how can we grow together if we dont make the right choices. We need to stop pointing the finger, get pass the bullshit and bring back black love.....

Pre 911 July 2001 I was twenty years old and boy that was an interesting year, to say the least. And as always  my summer tradition I made my trip to the local record store. During this month one of my all time favorite artist was releasing their third album which went to become a forever favorite of mine and is on my lifetime music playlist
On July 17th 2001, Aaliyah released her third and final self titled "Aaliyah" after a five year full album hiatus from her second album one in a million. At the time she had finally released a full album, of course to hold the fans over. We had the singles from the movie soundtracks  such as 1998 Doctor Do Little  SDTK "Are You That Somebody?"  and in 2000 Romeo Must Die SDTK, "Try Again, I Don't Wanna, Come Back In One Piece and are you Feeling Me?.
It was an exciting time for Aaliyah it was a year after a successful movie and soundtrack, she had entered into legal adulthood She w…

What's Going On?

Google Images: Devastation from Bomb Attack in Mogadishu, Somalia

I may talk about music and culture, It is my way to ease the pain with all the things I see going on in this world. But it is too much to ignore, last weekend there was bomb explosion in Mogadishu, Somalia. As of right now it has been reported that 300 lives has been lost due the terrorist attack.

I do my best to keep up with what is going on, whether it's in pop culture, local or national news. And with this recent terrorist attack. The one thing I don't see flooding up and down my time lines on my social media feed. Is  #PrayForSomalia, that is something that is very scarce across the feeds. But I bet your bottom dollar I can see the endless memes of bitches not being shit and its numerous likes.

That goes without fail, I posted a few links about this horrific incident and all I have heard is crickets. If I posted a joke and made fun of reality star. It would have been likes and comments galore. I am not tell…

1997 Part II

I was sixteen years old in 1997, music was life back then for me, and in that year I needed it more then ever, My freshmen year of high school was 1996 - 1997 and during that school year I was at a school I did not want to be at. In the city of Buffalo at that time, during 8th grade year students had to pick the top choices of the high school they wanted to go to. It was all based on grades during 7th grade year and first grade quarter of 8th grade.

Math was my weakest subject, and the schools that I chose at the time a student had to excel well in the area of math. And me not being on my A game it caused me to loose out on all of my choices of the schools I wanted to attend. So in fall of 1996 I was at my district school. While all my Jr. high friends was at the school of their choices living the high life.

I had to make a daily trip to south Buffalo, a place I did not want to be, what kept me calm to and from schoo…
