    A Tear for R. Kelly

    22A070BD-3653-4999-8D2A-091D60CFC5FB
    ​This is my first blog in 2019. Yes, my words have been a little slow. I’m now reliant on these memes; quick to point out how low trump will go. My annoyance with the government shut down has me truly in a funk. I am pained by insensitive White folks, frivolous calls to a police force that...

    Why I don’t fool wit you . . .

    7ABFBA97-DEFA-4F86-A854-ADDC85CBA3E4
    As we hit upon a New Year, a new documented season, a new reason to try more, a new journey that’s in store. I’m not writing resolutions or creating a list of “to dos”, I rather write my last piece of 12 reasons of why I don’t fool with you.  I learned in January, clowns in the circus can never be reformed, with big sm...

    Joseph, A True Stepdaddy

    FE4B1798-D021-4059-AB07-BF9CF456D4FB
    When I say Joseph was the best that ever did it, you best believe it. He was the eptimone of grace.  In a time when masculinity and male dominance trumped love, I know there had to be beef between him and Mary returning to the tent after finding out she was carrying a child not conceived by him. “You are not the father.” Th...

    Fill Your Tank

    3B7910FE-010F-49C5-9B59-29EBF59C4D4C
    Fill Up That Tank Christmas Message By Sister Dearest Price Artist - Kehinde Wiley I've died a thousand times in order to "get though this thing called life", as Prince would so awesomely say. "Yea, though I walk through. . . " Some seasons my cup has overflowed and at other times the cracks held nothing. Yet to die is to be emptied of it all. We d...

    Lock Santa and Franklin Up

    E3C53E33-1CBC-4132-A256-DF8241332CE9
    As a culture we never decided collectively if we wanted to conform to all this Santa Claus and Easter Bunny business which was concocted by big business of course. A lie that enslaves us to debt and regret, may be looked upon one day as being just as deceitful as American slavery. Because as we know, debt is bondage. We were hoodwinked into thinkin...

    Unconscious

    EA908CAA-4364-4263-A4D1-EA562C6C8096
    Unconscious I can't understand why I love the Black Man, who won't take my hand, who finds a way to tear me down, who makes me his clown, who waits for revolution, without concrete solutions, who carries his glock, and sells me his rock, who can't let me breath without sex up his sleeve, who has me watching his kids, but support ain't his biz, who ...

    Sister Rules

    93CF91E7-1D89-4DAD-BFD8-12DF356B0BD7
    You're not my sister if you can scroll down my page and see pain yet say nothing; reading suicidal thoughts, so you thought, they were suicidal thoughts. You're not my sister if you mock my journey to impress some ol' raggedy nigga that will be long gone before we can even argue about it; dumping you like I never would. You're not my sister if you ...

    “Disguised as God”

    A9AAD962-8F4D-4A5B-80BD-D94011A348BD
    ​I realized that Adam was playing a wicked game with me from a simple picture on Instagram taken way before our demise. When I saw his face in my phone, I felt like I temporarily lost consciousness and the air that should have otherwise been released from my lungs was blocked by something so evil that if I didn’t pull it togethe...

    “Dearest Husband” - July

    795F2600-B176-45AD-BD5B-E43BC0734C2D
    Dearest Husband,  I'm all over the place. I don't know what question I didn't answer. Saturday is our anniversary but I don't think I will make it up there. Did you talk to your sister? She has got to chill. She is spreading lies about me and it's getting back to my family. I saw your email where you said your sister visited. It's only been 3 ...

    “Booga Town” by Rebecca Stinson

    0F07276A-AB83-4931-ABA6-C08D85A99DDD
    I woke up to the smell of fresh rain. There’s nothing like it, other than mama’s fresh brewing coffee, her smokin’ hot biscuits, drizzling sausage and gressiling bacon popping like music. Daddy loved the smell of morning breakfast and mama loved my daddy. The morning fragrance always proved they still had it and nothing compared to that s...

    ​“With so much drama in the L-B-C, it’s kind of hard bein’ Snoop D-O double G but I some how some way keep comin’ up with funkin’ ass hits like every single day”. - Snoop Dog 93’ I went to a youth conference with my daughter this weekend and as I listened to the dynamic speakers that garnered the stage, one message was central.

    I’m Not Salisbury

    4ABFC1DA-2FED-4DA5-951D-D5F700D26070
    Change is local. I know that for certain and when I decided to branch out to create local publications throughout the East Coast and eventually nationally, I caught so much resistance and flack from my own people. "You're not from Salisbury". "You gonna fail out here". No, I'm not from Salisbury. I am idealistic woman, a visionary from Queens, NY, ...

    12 Years for Lyrics??? NaNa

    23B03741-2B03-4882-9C22-4B45531C0342
    We already have a dilapidated penal system, incarcerating Black men at astounding rates for acts that are “straight up” legal when done by white counterparts but the case of rapper NaNa is just too much. The Dallas native has been charge by Judge Barbara Lynn with 12 years for his rap lyrics. She is quoted as saying, “You'r...

    8 Reasons Why Black People Should Resist #45

    400C7465-7B60-47C4-8590-4C428820809A
    1. Donald Trump was a racist realtor in the 70’s. He was charged with Housing Discrimination and here is the kicker, he was found guilty by a court of law.  2.  Donald Trump took a full page ad out in a New York paper calling for the execution of the Central Park 5; five teenagers falsely accused of...

    She Sat Like Rosa Parks

    7FDA6AEE-02BE-4291-BA6C-E3F26072A40D
     Therese Okoumou was not only bold in her actions but fearless in her efforts to take down #45 and this systematic racist system that put immigrant babies in cages. When unintelligent people have nothing to say, they name call and Donald Trump of course called her a clown for her heroics. But to me she is a refreshing rememberence wh...

    Chris Brown Arrested

    5A065773-70FD-41E4-B0E5-DA738422A330
    ​I have to be honest, I am not a huge Chris Brown fan. Although many can let go of the brutal assault on Rihanna, since then me and Chris have not been the same. But I am a huge fan of justice. So when Chris Brown goes to Palm Beach to perform and gets arrested for outstanding warrants from last year, I just wonder, who the hell you got on you...

    The Other Face of Immigration

    887DE284-264E-4D62-B28C-38940B66A904
    While some of us smoked up the grill yesterday and watched the annual fireworks show,  Therese Patricia Okoumou climbed up the Statue of Liberty in protest of our demonstrative immigration laws here in the US. Watching the CNN coverage from my phone, gave way for our dear citizens to make hateful comments about a person tha...
