Always aware

There is a huge unwritten rule for being black anywhere in the world. You are not welcome. African Americans are not even welcome in Africa by some as if it was our fault that our ancestors were sold and put to work on a land that isn’t ours.  I cannot speak for other races on…

Romp on good fella 

Late evening into this morning I saw this picture on my various timelines about the romper for him. At first I was like alright. If they are fine with a onesie, no big whoop. Hell, growing up in NYC, I have seen worse. But then I remember what time I live in. Here come the…

Who asked you??

On January 21st 2017, we had the  Women’s March happen. People from all walks of life came out in droves to support women’s right. The reason why I decided to write about the March almost a month later is because when I read the news now, we are currently dealing with leaks and ties with…

Burn in effigy but don’t blame me

Trump this and Trump that. Since his inauguration, it has been a cluster of what he is doing and what isn’t doing. How his cabinet are essentially idiots ( I tend to agree) and basically that the four horsemen are just waiting for his thin skinned ass to push a button.  Now never mind the…
