Miriam Carey drives erratically in DC and gets gunned down, Omar Gonzalez jumps fence and goes into the White House and lives to tell it

UPDATED 9/23/14

How could a man scale the White House fence and go into the residence with a knife in his pocket? What was the Secret Service doing? Where were the dogs? Miriam Carey was gunned down for driving erratically in DC and Omar Gonzalez managed to enter the residence? What would have happened if six people had jumped the fence and the Obamas were home? Why was the door unlocked? So many questions and not enough answers.

Is a piece of a man better than nothing?

For the past three weeks Iyanla Vanzant has dealt with a man who has 34 children by 17 mothers. In the first episode Vanzant gave each of the mothers that participated a piece of a shirt symbolizing that they each only had a piece of him, and how it was impossible to have a healthy family if you are working with a piece of a man. The women on the show simply wanted to be loved and he played into their need to be loved. As they shared their stories you heard common threads throughout and you could not help but feel sorry for them, but today I thought about how ironic this situation was. These women are looked at as victims but every week we celebrate a ficitonal character who has made herself comfortable eating the scraps off the presidential table. Scandal is the show and Olivia Pope is the heroine. Sure she is decked in designer clothing and she speaks in a well-bread staccato tone, but she is a woman satified with a piece of a man. Perhaps we need some new heroines.

Kent State Urban Outfitters Offensive Tee Shirt…why did people buy it?

kent state 5-4-70
Everybody needs a blood splattered tee shirt in their wardrobe…no they don’t. Why would a company sell a shirt like this? May 4, 1970 four students were killed on the Kent State campus. People buying the shirts probably don’t even know that, but the company probably did. So now comes the outrage and the free publicity. sounds like a win-win for Urban Outfitters.

Politics from the Eyes of an Ebony Mom is 7 years old today

I have been writing this blog for 7 years. I have written over 5,000 posts. This blog has given me the opportunity to have a conversation with people all over the world. My goal has been to have a discussion that is inclusive. I post opinions that agree with my own and I also post those that don’t. The only thing I ask is that we respect each other. Thank you for reading and I will continue to write.
