Because I work such long shifts I don’t always check my voicemail. this stems from the reason that I hated buying a cell phone in the first place. I didn’t want people to be able to reach me all the time. It was so much easier having a home phone that…
The title of this blog is derived from the famous Donny Hathaway Christmas songthat many will be singing. I never associated this time of year with the whole manger story, which sounded hokey, unbelievable and not related to anything I had ever…
Yesterday the world lost a man who embodied leadership, change and equality. Nelson Mandela, your legacy lives on and your passion inspires us to be great.

My mother is old. I just came from visiting her and I realize that she is now reaching the point where she sometimes needs us to to help. I took her arm and helped her across the street when my sister and i took her to see a play Clybourne Park. She had…
In a World where our shades are put down and don’t fit the false standards imposed by a racist society, Never Be ashamed to Love Yourself and Your Culture Out Loud and Proud. Never allow anyone to make you feel uncomfortable about embracing who you are in any fashion. Never Apologize for Loving who you are.

"The Black Man Is Not Truly Educated until he understands the urgency in which he must rebuild his community"~~ Isaac Kwabena
Many times in this generation I hear people refer to some black men as “educated black men”,”there’s nothing sexier than an educated black man” I ask why? Because he went to school and got a college degree? Because he managed to get a decent job? You like the way he ties his bowtie? What makes him an “educated black man”?
What is it to be an educated “BLACK” man? It is to be fluent in white history, uphold European values, approved by white scholars, and dedicated to the improvement of European systems? You’re “well-seasoned”, “well-conditioned”, and “well trained” to benefit white supremacy. That’ is NOT true education for a Black Man. That is Indoctrination and Mis-Education.
What is it to REALLY be an “Educated Black” Man? First and foremost you’re a MAN. Your role should be providing and protecting your family and your community. You would never under any circumstances abandon your offspring. Second you must understand that you are a BLACK MAN. You’re civilization has been broken down, enslaved, and destroyed. You’re outlook on life cannot be the same as the white man. If you’re black you have to look at things a little differently. You Should have a sense of urgency in rebuilding your own community. You should be out there in the field trying to pull these young kids aside because you UNDERSTAND the conditions you’re people are facing.You should be out here building with, loving, and protecting the Black Woman. An educated Black Man understand WHY he needs to give back. That is what a TRULY EDUCATED BLACK MAN is. One who understands the importance of rebuilding his community. Reflect on this next time you are about to give another black man credit for being “educated”. Peace…

Somehow this post reminded me of that Primus song: My name is Mud
All I can think of is germs. Germs. Germs. Germs.
What you have here is actually an example of good clean fun! Complete isolation from our environment leads to a lessening of our natural evolutionary biology, but that does not mean you should not consider using processed and refined mud at your next BOG battle!
