Steve Harvey’s partenership with Paula Deen has upset some people

“I just know the good in her. That’s all I know. And it outweighs the bad by a landslide,” — Steve Harvey on his new collaboration with Paula Deen.
Steve Harvey is officially on the COON train.

A friend of mine posted this on his Facebook page. Paula Deen admitted to using the N-word last year and she saw sponsors run from her like she had the plague. She has spent the last year rebuilding her brand. Steve harvey reached out to her and has made her a mentor to boys that he mentors through his foundation. He has forgiven her and he has put action to his words. Many in the black community are questioning the wisdom of this decision but what do you think? Should Paula Deen be mentoring young black boys?

When did preaching become entertainment?

When I grew up the preachers preached hard, worked up a sweat, christened babies, buried the dead and encouraged the living. They lived in the world of black and white, gray areas did not exist and living on the edge simply meant you were on your way to hell. These preachers were the pre-WWJD generation. For them it was not a question they already knew what he would do, say and they would tell you what he would say about your life. They were not right all the time, but they felt a calling on their lives. Their center stage was often at the front of a storefront. What made them bearable was they were sincere in their beliefs. They would come to the pulpit in their robes or their gray, blue, black or brown suits. Piety was often a way of life not just a word in the dictionary. Now we see preachers ready to strut and wait for their close ups. Preaching is big business. It’s lights, camera action. It’s about getting more in the door not necessarily getting more souls closer to the Great “I AM”. We are in the age of the Preachers of LA and soon to be released the Preachers of Detroit. We will see them flaunt their wealth as they spout well worn platitudes. It is a new day but is it a better day? Share your thoughts.

Will Ray Lewis ever simply be remembered for football?

This is how MSN describes Ray Lewis on it’s news ticker, “Analyst & ex-double murder suspect Ray Lewis said of the NFL star & his alleged domestic abuse, ”Some things you can cover up … some things you can’t.” Not Two time Super bowl winner, MVP, future Hall of Famer. No ex-double murder suspect. What’s the intent of the description? You tell me. Lewis was found not guilty of obstruction of justice but that info was buried in the story.

I don’t even like baseball and this commercial had me in tears.

The New View is a Real Snore

the new view
I watched The View on Monday and I was bored to death, but I gave it another chance and my conclusion is the New View is a bore. There is no chemistry between the hsts and you feel like you are guest at a dinner party. You want to leave but you believe it would be rude to leave before the entree, but you know you will not be there for the dessert. It is in a word–Bad. It will be interesting to see if it gets better, but someone will have to tell me because I will not be watching.
