Big Brother’s Rape Humor not funny…Frankie Grande leads the pack


Last season’s Big Brother group brought a little racism to the mix. BB16 has decided to bring a little sexism just for fun. Watch as castmates joke about raping Fellow castmate Victoria Rafaeli. Frankie Grande leads the laughter, but it is even more appalling is the presence of Christine. Do these people forget the camera is on 24/7? The next live broadcast is Thursday. perhaps the apology will come then.

The beauty of White Privilege is you don’t realize you have it

Over the past few days I have listened to the debate regarding white privilege. Some argue it simply does not exist and others argue that it is one of the impediments that stops the economic ascension of minorities, but is it real? Yes it is very real. The privilege is granted at birth when you automatically receive the benefit of the doubt. Share your thoughts.

Rev. Al Sharpton says stop the “ghetto pity party”…why are people surprised?

Yesterday Rev. Al Sharpton delivered the eulogy at Michael Brown’s funeral. He took the police to task and he cried for justice for Michael Brown. Sharpton surprised some when he also took on the black community. He chastised the community and told them to stop having ghetto pity parties. he told them to stop the disrespect that is shown on a daily basis in the community. The irony is that some people are surprised that Sharpton took this trek, but we can not continue to just criticize external influences without acknowledging the internal demons that are loose on the streets. Sharpton 2.0 is not the Sharpton of back in the day. He is not looking at the issue with blinders on. He is looking at the issue from a 360 angle and that viewpoint will mke people of both hues uncomfortable.

Who are the angels among us?

Today the New York Times wrote an article about Michael Brown. In the article they said Brown was “no angel”. Show me an angel among us. They chronicled his aspirations to be a rapper and even his consumption of alcohol and drugs. No it does not sound like the life of an angel but it does sound like the life of a teen. No not all teens do the things Brown did but when he was shot by the police did they know then that he was no angel? We’re not called to be angels. We are citizens of the United States, and some of us try to be model citizens but even that does not ensure your safety. The media is looking for a reason to explain what many people believe is unreasonable, but the he is no angel defense is simply not going to cut it.

What would make you pour a bucket of ice water on your head?

The ice bucket challenge has been one of the movements of the summer. Celebrities and common folks are taking the challenge. My timeline is full of friends challenging other friends to take the plunge, and ALS is laughing all the way to the bank. It has been a great promotion for a great cause, but the question is what would make you do this? Is there a cause in your life that deserves the spotlight? Newsflash you don’t need ice or water to make a donation.

Is there a racial divide in Ferguson…yes, there is a racial divide in America

Three weeks ago most people never heard of Ferguson. Now the world is talking about the town and its leadership. yesterday the mayor of the town was asked if there was a racial divide in Ferguson. His answer was no. From his vantage point everything is fine, but I bet his vantage point does not include Mike Brown’s neighborhood. Brown lived in the part of the city that is not often exposed to the world. Tourists dare not venture into the neighborhood, but aren’t there neighborhoods like Ferguson in every city? A teenage boy was killed. The facts are in dispute and hopefully the legal system can sort out the details and ferret out the truth, but the cameras are going to soon turn their lights out and move on to the next story and this town will be left to move on. So where do we go from here. There is a racial divide in this country and how you view Ferguson depends on your vantage point. In America all vantage points are not equal.
