Comments Policy


 

This is a direct response to a nasty comment made on one of my previous posts. I am not a nice person when somebody says or writes the wrong things so things are about to get ugly. Real Ugly!!  You May STOP Reading Now.

As Creator and Moderator of this blog I reserve the right to call out any stupid, racist, sexist, dumb ass or ageist comments.  I recently ReBlogged a post about an All Black Cowgirls Team. Anyone who has an ounce of good sense and a knowledge of racist American History should know why Black people in this country need and must have All Black Teams, Events, Organizations, Groups etc….. There has rarely been and given the upcoming administration will be any societies, organizations, groups, etc… where Blacks are or will be seen as equals. We’ve been having this battle for 400 years and even through the eight years of the Obama administration you see how a racist bigoted Congress and Senate did their level best to obstruct any forward positive moves that President Obama tried to make during his administration.

Actually since things are going backwards in the USA for people of Color it behooves us to band together and do for self because the government is about to pull the rug out from under us regarding any benefits, services or programs designed to benefit all American Citizens. Even though we have worked just as hard if not harder and without pay for the most part to build this country up.

To All My Black People for Christmas and Kwanzaa please do your best to Buy Black.

I am proud of being a Black Woman and as for anyone who does not like it or disagrees with me promoting and uplifting my own people I got two words for you. FUCK OFF!!

Now getting back to ignorant racist comments like the one Mr. GP Cox put on my Black Cowgirls post. Is this guy for real?  IS TODAY DUMB MUTHA FUCKER DAY?!

I used to ride horses and i admire this group, but i don’t understand why they feel they need to be an all-Black team. Are there teams called the all-white cowgirls?

Did he really ask such a stupid ass question to me as a Black Woman in this hateful country where I have been physically just because I am Black and a Woman?  Where my father who served this country during the Korean War was denied service in a restaurant in Washington, DC while in uniform?  Does he not understand that the reason why my Great, Great Grandfather served in the 29th Colored Regiment. The reason there the Tuskegee Airmen existed!!

Where every positive deed and action has been negated by the greater white population since 1492. Are you kidding me. Give me a fucking break!!

I wonder what white bread universe Mr. Cox is living in?  Is he out of his fucking mind? No. Now let me think. Oh yes he must live in white bread New Burbia where folks who  look like me are servants, maids, butlers, etc….  You know that America that Mr. Dhrump is about to return us to. The fabulous 40s, 50s & 60s where attack dogs were set upon us. Where we were hosed down in the streets with fire hoses and where we are systemically shot by the KKK racist bigoted police while our hands are up in surrender.

When I read comments like this I know in my heart and mind that this country will never be united as one.  This unity business is all a lot of trash talk and bullshit because at 11:00 am today Sunday morning white people will go to their churches and Black folks will go to ours.

In the meantime Mr. GP Cox I will give you this opportunity to unsubscribe and UnFollow all my blogs now!

As for anyone else who hates Blacks, Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians, other peoples of Color,  the disabled, the LGBT Community LEAVE NOW!!

ALL YOUR COMMENTS WILL BE DELETED, TRASHED AND PUT INTO SPAM!! TAKE YOUR NASTY ATTITUDE SOMEWHERE ELSE.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

COMMENTS HAVE BEEN CLOSED BUT IF I SEE YOU POSTING OR COMMENTING ON ANOTHER ONE OF MY BLOGS I SWEAR YOU’D BETTER BE READY TO BRING IT BECAUSE I AM!!

Baby Boy


He looked like an Angel albeit a broken Angel splayed out on the cold marble floor. His head at angles with his twisted body along with his staring unseeing eyes extinguished any hope that the embers of life still burned within him.  The earth came up to meet him and swallowed him into the heavens.  The Benjamins make a poor parachute.

Cupid shot by his own Arrow.
Cupid shot by his own Arrow.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Baby Boy

Baby Boy Got $200 sneakers as a reward for cussing the teachers and failing in school. Teacher or principals fault. Grades all F but it ain’t me you fucked up can’t you see! School’s for Fools. Some place I don’t want to be.

Baby Boy he never wrong. They got it all mixed up seeing me strong. Y’all know I’m the King of my crew. God’s Gift to everything.

But in the back of your head all you can see is yo’ no count Daddy, welfare system and crackhead Momma staring back in the mirror saying you gonna be like me.

Hanging out in the upper class nabe with my hoodrat crew. See a few things I wanna take. Wait a minute! What’s that I hear! A siren in back of me. Starting to fear. Next thing I’m on Lock down in Juvie Hall. Where my crew at now when as I’m taking this fall.

Baby boy lying in a ditch. Worse off than being a Snitch. Off to Rikers’ to be somebody’s Bitch. Baby Boy. You Done. You Done.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

His rhymes had got him to the big time. Opened new doors of upper class vice and sin. The immoralities of the 1%. I gazed at my son from the balcony of one of the greatest art institutions in the city seeing not the young man who had entered the 27 Club of the Immortals but every little boy running up and down Linden Blvd., Jamaica Avenue, Fulton Street or Sedgwick Avenue running to be the next 50 cent or Jay-Z finding fame and winding up on 27 Jump Street misjudging the doubles lives one foot in the hood and the other on Central Park West or the Upper East Side seeking Hipster fame and validation.

Jump my Son/Sun. Jump out of your dreams and into Eternity.

SYW BANNER

When you cut something with scissors, do you move your jaw (as if you were about to chew)?

No.

Do you chew your pens and pencils?

No. They don’t taste good.

Are you a collector of anything?  If so what?

I used to collect African-American figurines and when I had my own place. I had a Curio Cabinet to display them but they are all in storage now since my space is way too small to be collecting anything.

What size is your bed? 

Full size. Big enough for me and my cat Sylvester.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

 

Okay I’m a week late answering this Share Your World. Shows you my hectic life of commuting plus spending hours at work so I’m backtracking.

Good Weather and warm temps. After that horrible disgusting snowstorm last week the temps went into the 50s & 60s. Much better.

Looking forward to my Birthday, Monday, Feb. 27th.

 

 

Musical Tastes Expectations

Expectation

 

Sometimes people think because I’m African-American I only enjoy Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Funk, R&B or Soul Music. Not true. Because I was exposed to different types of music at an early age I also enjoy Classical and County Music.  I learned about Classical music while in High School. At the time I did not appreciate this music but as I got older the beauty, flow and melodies resonated in my life.

As for C&W (Country & Western) music I both heard and saw on TV plus later when I was stationed at Fort Campbell, KY one flies into Nashville, TN which is the C&W music capitol. Ft. Campbell, KY sits on both the states of Kentucky and Tennessee. Pretty much I was hearing C&W music all day every day on the radio as I went about my daily business of work.  I came to appreciate the romance and drama of C&W and developed a taste for some of my favorite music artists.

A little while ago a co-worker and I were sitting in the break room talking about our favorite C&W stars. He name Marty Robbins and together we began to sing the famous Marty Robbins song El Paso. Other co-workers entering the break room thought we were nuts and got a good laugh from our off key singing.

My co-worker is Puerto Rican and Taino. The Taino are the Indigenous peoples of Puerto Rico.

Over the years I’ve learned to appreciate many music genres. I Love the many songs from the different countries in Africa. I also enjoy Native American music. Most of sung in their native tongue but you don’t have to understand the words to appreciate the beauty of the music.

 

Marty Robbins… (Long Version) “El Paso” 1959 with Lyrics

 

My absolute favorite all time C&W is Patsy Cline. In my Opinion she is the Best Female C&W singer of all time!

 

Patsy Cline — I Fall To Pieces

 

Patsy Cline – Crazy

 

Patsy Cline – Walkin’ After Midnight

Celebrity Twin Status


 

Have you ever been mistaken for a famous Celebrity, Entertainer, or sports figure?

Hollywood, Bollywood or Nollywood (Nigerian films)!!

For example for some strange reason in the past I’ve been told I look like Whoopi Goldberg and the singer Macy Gray. The former I knew but the latter I had to research. I did have the opportunity to see Whoopi Goldberg in person and the only we had in common was my locs and the fact we are both Black Women who wear eyeglasses.  I no longer wear my hair in locs but even when I did Whoopi and I could never be twins.

Whoopi Goldberg

 

Macy Gray

As for the singer Macy Grey well once I allow my hair to grow out my mane does tend to get wild and Free like Sister Macy.  My co-workers have a weird odd strange sense of humor.

Still that’s where the resemblance ends.
Have you ever been mistaken for a Celebrity?  If so who?

Okay now that you’ve had the chance to compare all the photos the only component that both Macy Gray and I have in common is belonging to the Wild and UnTamed Hair Club!!

 

 

Here is my favorite Macy Gray song.

Macy Gray – I Try

Wonder where my parents got inspiration for some of the corny outfits I had to wear during the 1960s.  Maybe from the below video? Gotta Love the Gingham dress!! At least it has some Red in it which was and still is one of my favorite colors. LOL!!
