What would you ask?

Over the weekend I went to a get together called the "Speak Out". Basically it's was a discussion on different topics from politics, entertainment, men and women issues etc... There were about 15 guys a 4 ladies in attendance. So it was very interesting to hear what the brothers had to say. Below are some of the questions and some answers that I remembered from the session.
Should homosexual have the right to adopt?
Most children in the adoption system have been molested. When the lights go out the molested become the molesters.
Can men and women who are fond of each other be platonic friends?
One of the answers to that question "Men who have sex with you are not your friends".
Why do Africans, Caribbeans and other foreign blacks look down on African Americans? Because we feel that AA do not take advantage of the resources they have in America.
Of course why do Black men date women outside of there races? Because they treat us better, they don't have the attitude and they wake us up with a kiss instead of I need money for this, the bills, the kids you ain't.
There where so many questions and a lot of good answers. Next time I promise to record and share with you. If you a had a chance to attend this function what would you ask and how will you answer?

Happy Fathers Day!!!

Letter from the Prez
AOL News June 19) -- On his first Father's Day in the White House, President Obama makes a public confession to his daughters.
"I know I have been an imperfect father. I know I have made mistakes," he writes in Sunday's Parade magazine.
The president's essay is part personal reflection and part policy statement.
"In many ways, I came to understand the importance of fatherhood through its absence," says Obama, who was 2 when his father left. "I came to understand that the hole a man leaves when he abandons his responsibility to his children is one that no government can fill."
The president often mentions how much he enjoys his family's closeness now that they're living "above the office." He sees Malia, 10, and Sasha, 8, every day before school and every night at dinner. But he paid a price to get a job with such perks.
"I have lost count of all the times, over the years, when the demands of work have taken me from the duties of fatherhood. There were many days out on the campaign trail when I felt like my family was a million miles away," he admits in the essay.
He regrets missing precious moments in the lives of his girls, calling it a loss he "will never fully accept."

Pause in Time

With a culture that is in dying need of change, PAUSED IN TIME, brings forth a fresh voice to Hip-Hop. With the street conscious album to the up close and personal documentary of Baltimore Hip-Hop, PAUSED IN TIME is an groundbreaking collaboration for Hip-Hop. The album features up and coming artists Profitne$$, The Dean, Rabiah, Saul Reel, 810 and J.Lynn. With explosive production from producers on the same grind, Sparkplugz Musik. Touching bases on Baltimore's Hip-Hop scene in clubs, to street corners, to clothing stores it is very enlightening to those who want something refreshing. With interviews ranging from Bossman and Comp speaking on their ups and downs in the music business, to the "Best female emcee" voted by City Paper Jade Fox, to future legends, Beat Box, EBN, and TMG, to a shining star in the DMV's (DC, Maryland&Virginia) spoken word movement Kom. (This is just the tip of the iceberg).


Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation - which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.

Juneteenth is a day of reflection, a day of renewal, a pride-filled day. It is a moment in time taken to appreciate the African American experience. It is inclusive of all races, ethnicities and nationalities - as nothing is more comforting than the hand of a friend.

Juneteenth is a day on which honor and respect is paid for the sufferings of slavery. It is a day on which we acknowledge the evils of slavery and its aftermath. On Juneteenth we talk about our history and realize because of it, there will forever be a bond between us.

On Juneteenth we think about that moment in time when the enslaved in Galveston, Texas received word of their freedom. We imagine the depth of their emotions, their jubilant dance and their fear of the unknown.

Juneteenth is a day that we commit to each other the needed support as family, friends and co-workers. It is a day we build coalitions that enhance African American economics.

On Juneteenth we come together young and old to listen, to learn and to refresh the drive to achieve. It is a day where we all take one step closer together - to better utilize the energy wasted on racism. Juneteenth is a day that we pray for peace and liberty for all.

Nigerian Hood Movies aka Nollywood

While I was in Binta African Hair Salon getting every piece of my scalp braided up, I got the pleasure to watch "My Baby Boy" a Nigerian hood movie. Coming straight from Nollywood more on that later. Now "My Baby Boy" was very entertaining. I consisted of 3 story lines in one. A little much but very interesting to say the least. One story line was about this man whore who has all these women and two of his women happen to be roommates and he gets caught. Another was about these two twins females one is a straight whore and sleeps with her sister man and he ask like he does not know. Lastly was about a father and daughter who have been sleeping with each other for the past 11 years. The fathers starts cheating, the daughters gets upset and is out for blood. My system was in overload from all of the foolywaginish that was going on. I would like to see these films go into a little more depth instead of your average Jerry Springer episode. Nerveless I have to give props where it's do and Nollywood definitely gets 4 Bobby Brown Humps.

About Nollywood it emerged in the 1990s. It stems from the traveling theater a vibrant tradition of plays that are performed from village to village. The plays began to be put on VHS tape and now Nollywood is the 3rd largest film industry

Hero or Murderer

Here is the Scenario:
OKLAHOMA CITY – Confronted by two holdup men, pharmacist Jerome Ersland pulled a gun, shot one of them in the head and chased the other away. Then, in a scene recorded by the drugstore's security camera, he went behind the counter, got another gun, and pumped five more bullets into the wounded teenager as he lay on the floor.

Now Ersland has been charged with first-degree murder in a case that has stirred a furious debate over vigilante justice and self-defense and turned the pharmacist into something of a folk hero.

When I heard about this I thought that the pharmacist did what he he had too. However after watching this video has changed my mind completely. This guy was definitely in the wrong. What do you think?

Sentenced!!! 12 Years of hard labor

June 8 (Bloomberg) -- North Korea sentenced U.S. journalists Euna Lee and Laura Ling to 12 years of labor for charges including illegally entering the country, stoking tension with the Obama administration after detonating a nuclear device last month.

The two women were sentenced after a June 4-8 trial in which they were found guilty of the “crime they committed against the Korean nation,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency said.

The sentencing may enflame tensions that are already running high after North Korea detonated a nuclear device last month, said the 1953 armistice ending the Korean War no longer applies and fired several missiles. South Korea has deployed a combat ship to its maritime border with the North and vowed last week to send F-15K fighter jets in the event of a clash.

Lee and Ling were detained along the China border March 17 while reporting for San Francisco-based Current TV, co-founded by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said “the charges against these young women are absolutely without merit or foundation,” in an interview with ABC television’s “This Week.”

Wow!!! Please pray for there immediate release.

Since comfort is your main ingredient for happiness, you should know that it’s just around the corner, bigger and better than you’re imagining right now. But like everything else, the darkest hour comes right before the dawn. The week ahead requires you to move through a series of very uncomfortable situations to get you through those powerfully disruptive forces that have wreaked havoc with the first half of your year. Your ruler travels through her least favorite sign for one more week, while the soothing connections you’ve been relying on for support are occupied elsewhere for the moment. You’ll do best to keep your sites riveted to the door you can already see opening up ahead. The Full Moon on Sunday stabilizes a brand new chapter and your ruler moves into your own sign, bringing strength and peaceful solidarity into your world at last.

Eminem GETS TEABAGGED at the MTV awards

This is so disrespectful for any man to put his ass in another man face. I would have punch him straight in his mouth.

Pretty Sugary

This shit is ridiculous

Consistency is the Key

If i just implemented 75% of consistency in my life i will be greater than my mine can imagine. This is what keeps me from going to the next level...I'm not consistent. I start working out for a week by the next week I'm back on the couch eating bon bons. I have so many ideals that I'll start but never seem to finish. I can go on and on about the backwards stuff I seem to do but what will that solve.

Sincerely my non consistent ass
