Ted Cruz just gave Carly Fiorina her ticket on the Titanic

Is Ted Cruz living in a parallel universe? He has to be and in that world he is inches away from winning the GOP nomination for the presidency, but here in the real world he is losing, losing badly. So to see him anointing a running mate today is bizarre. Maybe he is not the only one that resides in this other world. Carly Fiorina is a card carrying citizen of that world. If she was not she would not be jumping on board the Cruz train. At what point does a candidate accept the real world reality that this is not his season. Obviously, Cruz is not there yet he still sees a path but it is over. He is a passenger on the Titanic and today he invited a buddy to join him.

Are you sick of “Becky with the good hair”?

What the heck is good hair?* Is it the kind of hair that is naturally straight? Is it the kind of hair that has a natural curl? Good hair is a phrase that probably pre-dates most of my readers, but it is a phrase that continues to echo in the black community. If something is good it actually implies the opposite of that state is bad. So do we conclude hair with a natural kink is bad? One would think this would be a conversation we were no longer having, but sadly that is not the case. Over the years chemicals and electric devises have enabled us to have any kind of hair we want. We can have naturals, kinky and even nappy if that is your preference. So can we stop using this antiquated term “good hair”, and simply accept the beauty of diversity.

*Understood the Beyonce reference just opening it up to a wider discussion.

Barbershop The Next Cut…Go Buy Your Ticket

barbershop the next cut

Just saw Barbershop The Next Cut today and if you have not seen it I encourage you to do so. Sure there are plenty of laughs, but the heart of the story is a father’s love for his son. A black father’s love. I say that because this is not the kind of story that gets much media play. We see black fathers on the Maury Povich show turning flips when they find out that they are not the father. We see the glorification of gang bangers, but we rarely see loving fathers standing up for their children. Go see it and you will be inspired.

Is the Kelly and Michael Debacle over the top?

Kelly Ripa has not been on the set of Kelly and Michael since Michael Strahan announced he was leaving the show. Ripa was blindsided by the news. That might be true but does that give her the right to go on strike? What do you think should Strahan have told Ripa before the rest of the world. Share your thoughts.
