I am interested in politics and current events. This blog provides me the forum to write about issues that we all face on a daily basis. We encourage feedback as we discuss issues in an intelligent, respectful way.

Did you see BAPS last night?

As I have confessed before I watch my share of reality television, but I do draw the line. Last night I watched BAPS on Lifetime. I’ll start off saying this show was so contrived I actually thought it might be satire. I mean what grown women act or talk like this? When I think BAPS I think young and entitled not what I saw last night .The women featured were more cougar than princess. I read that Lifetime has ordered 6 episodes. Good luck with that…30 minutes was all I could take. Share your thoughts.

Do you understand autism?

Let me answer the question in the headline-no I don’t understand it. Television shows like Parenthood feature autistic characters, but as my friend pointed out most television autistic characters are high functioning, but what do you do when you have two adult non-verbal autistic sons? Do you lock them in a basement? A couple in Maryland did just that and there story is circulating and people are making their comments and their judgments, but who are we to judge? Yes we can agree that keeping two people padlocked in a room for hours could easily be defined as cruel and unusual, but we do need to hear their story. We need to know whether they had sought resources and were they denied? There is more to this story and we need to know all the facts before we think about casting the first stone.

Black Jesus is an insult to Christians and Black Folks…who will be watching?


Some things should actually be off limits to mockery, and for me Jesus is one of them. Black Jesus is soon to join the Adult swim lineup. Who would watch this? Share your thoughts. (it is the creation of the guy who brought us the Boondocks).

NY Police kill man in choke hold…does Al Sharpton hurt or help the issue?

Joan Rivers can dish it out, but she can’t take it


Joan Rivers can be crude and mean. Her show Fashion Police is her pulpit. She says things about celebrities that make people gasp, but that is what Rivers does. She goes for the shock value, but she does not like sitting on the hot seat. She is a bully who cloaks her meaness in humor. Well, yesterday when she started to feel uncomfortable she left the interview showing she can dish it out, but she can’t take it.

Happy Fourth of July…celebrating the good in this country

happy bday america 2014

We all spend alot of time complaining about our country. We see it and we are never too busy to point out her flaws, but on this day let’s talk about 3 things that are good about our country:
1. Good food: we are a collection of diverse ethnic groups and each group has brought something wonderful to the collective plate.
2. Good government: even though we are caught up in dysfunction the mechanisms put in place by the Constitution still work.
3. Good people: this country has had and still has challenges in how our people are treated, but even in the worst of times there have been people who have put it all on the line for the greater good of this country.
Enjoy your holiday and celebrate the good!

What’s wrong with Serena Williams?


What happened to Serena Williams. NBC described her behavior as “bizarre” or was she just sick? Why won’t the media giver her the benefit of the doubt? doesn’t she deserve that?
