SPOILERS AHEAD! It’s 2021 and COVID cases are increasing which makes pre COVID life impossible. Social activities are very limited so there is more time for past times like reading. My first book review of 2021 is Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler. I would recommend this book. Octavia Butler is an African AmericanContinue reading “Pandemic Book Review: Parable of the Sower”

The Black People Have Spoken

Donald Trump is trying to invalidate the 2020 presidential election by undermining the votes of Black Americans. Donald Trump is only challenging votes in states with cities that have large Black populations that voted Democrat which caused him to lose the state. He’s only questioning the votes in Black areas. This is undemocratic and blatantlyContinue reading “The Black People Have Spoken”

Lockdown Reviews: A Father First, How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball

During the COVID 19 Lockdown I read the biography A Father First, How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball by retired NBA star Dwyane Wade.  The book was published in 2012.  It tells the story of Dwyane’s life while focussing on his relationship with his boys.  He is the father of two sons and he also raisedContinue reading “Lockdown Reviews: A Father First, How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball”

Harriet: My Review

I watched the film “Harriet” over the weekend. “Harriet” is a dramatized retelling of the life of American hero Harriet Tubman. There was a lot of buzz around this film and a lot of think pieces were written and vlogs were made about this movie. People really over thought this. It was a good movie,Continue reading “Harriet: My Review”

Pro Black You Tube is a Scam

There are a lot of You Tubers that I watch that would fall under the so called Pro Black umbrella.  I think that every last one of them is a scam artist and they should not be taken seriously.  Not only should they not be seen as leaders they should be seen as scam artistsContinue reading “Pro Black You Tube is a Scam”

The Feminist Nonsense Continues: Lizzo at the Lakers Game

I’m not even sure where to start with this.  In case you haven’t heard I’ll recap the insanity.  Pop star Lizzo went to a Lakers game in a loose T shirt dress with a cut out at the behind which exposed her bare cheeks and black thong.  During the game Lizzo was put on theContinue reading “The Feminist Nonsense Continues: Lizzo at the Lakers Game”

TI’s Hymen Test is Indicative of the way the World Seeks to Control Black Female Sexuality

Recently rapper TI remarked on a podcast that he took his daughter to a gynecologist yearly and had the doctor check to ensure her hymen was still intact.  This is supposed to prove that the eighteen year old girl has never had sex.  All families operate differently and what is peculiar to one family mayContinue reading “TI’s Hymen Test is Indicative of the way the World Seeks to Control Black Female Sexuality”

The Amber Guyger Story is a Scam!

The Amber Guyger story was a farce from the time it broke in the news until Amber Guyger was sentenced earlier this month.  There was so much about this saga that didn’t make sense and like Judge Judy says, “If it doesn’t make sense it isn’t true”.  Anyone that is in touch with reality andContinue reading “The Amber Guyger Story is a Scam!”

Traditional Black Womanhood

Traditional Black womanhood is having a hard time in 2019.  It is having a hard time being heard, respected and taken seriously by anyone, even or I should say especially by other Black women.  It seems that anytime a Black woman speaks from a traditional point of view (I’m not talking politics) she is oftenContinue reading “Traditional Black Womanhood”
