The Game new season

The sixth season of the game has started and let me start off by saying that I am deeply sad about the character "Derwin Davis" being written off the show. I love me some some Derwin, but the show must go on. Derwin played by actor Pooch Hall and Malanie played by actress Tia Mowry-Hardict is no longer apart of the cast of the game. Originally there characters was the focal point of the show, well the powers that be of the show has decided to end that storyline.
I read all the gripes and complaints from folks, oh the game has changed or the lines are dry and blah this blah that. Yes the show has changed its not on the CW network anymore it under a whole different budget. It's no longer a sitcom. Folks have to realize major networks are able to supply the bells and whistles to make a sitcom work. A channel like BET does not have the budget to do sitcoms like the major networks. They don't its a fact, look what happened to the Monique show, they tried late the nig…

R.I.P Easy E

I will never forget March 26th 1995 I had just recently celebrated my fourteenth birthday I was in seventh grade life was good. Well life was not good for everyone else, rap artist Easy E died from aids that day. We as the public only learned a  month prior that Eazy had full blown aids, his death was met with sadness, shock and confusion. Eazy is best known for being the founder of controversial group N.W.A who was popular in the late 80's and early nineties and the he became the founder of Ruthless and discovered the group Bone thugs -n- Harmony (I love those guys). With that being said Eazy E still had a impact on hip hop music and the culture. It has been eighteen years since his passing and we still ignore the affects of HIV/AIDS in the community. I thought that after his death, things were going to change and it hasn't still a lot of ignorance and carelessness is still happening. I'm not trying to preach about using protection and being smart because that should alr…

Put a ring on it

Well last night I was watching, VH1 reality show the black ink crew, and on last night's episode Puma the curator of the tattoo shop, told the other guys that he was going to purpose to his girlfriend, who is also the mother of his child. And he was met with some flack from the other fellas in the shop. The owner Cesar and Teddy was like they don't see the point in marriage it makes no sense, blah blah blah. Really can't be offended by two men who refer to the women they date as bitches, I mean they act as if there in high school chasing girls. Meanwhile Cesar is having baby mama drama and his current girlfriend just paid his child support, so he has no room to put another man down for doing the right thing which is stepping  up and being a man. The look on Puma face showed that he was disappointed by his friends. When I was younger I didn't see the point of marriage either, at one point and time the only example of marriage i seen growing up was my maternal grandpare…

Mama baby, Papa maybe....

So I was watching the most recent episode of black ink crew, and the one of the cast members Teddy was telling the boss Cesar that he may have a baby on the way. And before he told Cesar this, in his one on one he stated women have been trying to trap him and have his baby. In 2013 people still are saying they are being trapped with children. That has to be one of the dumbest things that can come out of  male or females mouth. No one gets trapped into having children, the choice was made when that person decided to lay down and not use protection. When it comes to unprotected sex everyone involved is aware of the consequences of that action. That's like the condom breaking theory, you know when two get together and the girl becomes pregnant and the excuse is the condom broke. I am not saying that condoms don't break,  I know shit happens. But we all know good and damn well that a condom was nowhere in the room in most cases. I don't believe in the baby trapping theories I …

Runnin

"Your friends won't help you in a squeeze, please they got problems of their own"- The Pharcyde, Runnin 1995 That quote is from one of my favorite hip hop songs "Runnin" performed by the pharcyde, that particular line hits close to home. When I think back to a time when people took time for one another to see how a person was doing, that time was long ago. In today world conversations are through text messages and social media. Phone calls  no longer last hours and hours, 5-10 minutes max, well in my world that how long they last. Everybody is always running, I understand that we as adults have busy lives, with work, children etc. But it amazes me people don't have the time to talk in person or over the phone. Yet have all the time in the world to take pictures of what they ate at red lobster and post on facebook and instagram. It makes no sense at all to me it really don't; I often wonder when did it come to a point that and time that we as a society …

Lord can we get a break

On march 8th 2013, my cousin was shot and killed in Buffalo NY he was only twenty two years old.  His life was cut short over what? I am not sure, however I guarantee it was not worth taking his life. I just read article about six month old who was shot five times over some gang related bullshit in the city of Chicago. A few weeks ago a young lady name Hadiya was shot and killed and recently laid to rest in that same city. When are we going to get a break? when will these fools grow a conscience and stop killing there own brothers and sisters? We get on our knees and prey every day for a better tomorrow. Sometimes I wonder if our prayers are getting heard it don't seem like it, right now I am working on my individual path with GOD. And during our talks I ask when will we get a break? the world is in pain right now and my community is being affected the worst. I am of tired getting phone calls says so and so was just shot. Or reading on facebook rest in paradise, you was the reales…

Single, Black & Female: The dating fiasco

I am a blog lover, seven days a week I am reading a blog its the greatest thing that happen to the Internet. Majority of the blogs I read is geared towards African American female readers and in these blogs there are numerous posts about the dilemma of the single black female in America. This topic has been done to death, and most them has the tone of its all our faults that we are single. According to the authors the black woman problem is: she overweight, she has a attitude problem, standards are two  high, too independent, needs to date outside her race, so on and so forth. And the majority of the authors who post these blogs are men because they understand what it is like to be  a woman and feel they need to tell us its all our fault that we are single and that we are going to die that way. I say that is a crock of shit, yes I am single, i would love to meet a great guy and spend my life with him, but the dice don't always roll that way. It will happen when its time, in the m…

Adventures of the loner

On March 11th I will be thirty two years old (and proud to say it).  Originally I was going to have a intimate get together at my home, I sent out text messages and really didn't really get to many responses. So I said screw that switch it up, do a dinner meet at a restaurant and have a good time. Well that kinda went like the get together. However a few coworkers are coming out to the dinner which is greatly appreciated. Growing up I pretty much stayed to myself. I have close friends but generally I am mostly by myself. I have been to a lot of concerts in my life time and only been to one with my sister, all the other shows i was by myself. All the high school parties, I went by myself. I know you may be asking yourself, damn does this person do everything alone? No I have done my share of group events, but those events were initiated by a friend, classmate or co-worker. When I have try to put to something together it never goes as planned. I understand people have other things …
