Al Roker Is not letting Billy Bush “whitesplain” Ryan Lochte’s lies


You go Al Roker. You called a lie a lie not an embellishment. You didn’t “calm down” like Billy Bush suggested. You kept it real and kept it truthful.

Donald Trump’s appeal to black folks, “what do you have to lose”, now that’s a winning strategy


Nobody respects the black vote. The Democrats take us for granted and the Republicans ignore us. Well, The Donald polling 1-2% in the black community has articulated a new strategy, and that is the “what the hell do you have to lose: strategy. Not really offering anything new. Not even coming into the community to articulate it. Just standing in front of mostly white crowds he just screams his new words. Is this truly the way he should be talking to black folks? 2016 is a different kind of election. Hillary Clinton is no Barack Obama and black people are not going to come out in those Obama numbers for her. So my advice is they both need to learn not all blacks live in poverty. We are like all Americans…different, and they need to address us that way.

Ryan Lochte, can we just say Thug?

32 year old man vandalizes bathroom and then lies about it to the world. Some call it young men having a good time but others including me call it thug behavior what do you call it? Share your thoughts.

Darrel Scottt, Trump Supporter says black people believe parody and that’s why they don’t like Trump


Where do they find these people?

Ryan Lochte lied and destroyed property, is he a thug?

The reaction to Ryan Lochte’s illegal activities can be described in one word-muted. He and his band of swimming brothers went out for a night on the town in Rio. They partied and then they destroyed property. They were detained by the police and then Lochte lied about the details. He came home to the US and his party buddies are left to answer questions. So where is the outrage? Why aren’t we hearing the talking heads vilifying him or demanding an apology? No one has called him a thug. So tell me why aren’t these gold medal winning swimmers being crucified by the press? You don’t have to tell me I know the answer.

Let Trump be Trump

Donald Trump has made changes in his campaign team but he has vowed he  not change. the mantra is “let Trump be Trump”. It is ironic that he has rejected invitations to appear at the Urban League and NAACP conventions, but last night he asked black people to vote for him at an event that was probably devoid of black people. The idea of a business man becoming president is not a bad idea, but the idea of Trump being that man is a bad idea. Listen to him. Is this a man who should lead this country? I am not fan of Hillary Clinton but when you are between a rock and hard place you have to make a decision. Is she the ideal candidate? No, but 2016 is not the year of the ideal it is the year of not selecting the despicable.

Donald Trump said President Obama was the founder of Isis…now he says it was just “sarcasm”


For the past few days Donald Trump has told his crowds that President Obama and Hillary Clinton were the founders of Isis. He made this statement strongly and often. When given opportunities to reel it in he didn’t. So today via Twitter he declares his statements as “sarcasm”. It’s the media’s fault for taking him seriously. Let’s say this is true and that’s stretching the definition of truth. It is sarcasm. Would a serious candidate actually do this? He got his message out to his people and they will take his statement to heart especially when he employed the president’s middle name to his statement. He got the impact he was looking for and for him that is a win.

Where is the love for Gabby Douglass?

A funny thing happened to Gabby Douglas over the past four years. She grew up. She is no longer the pixie size darling we first met at the 2012 London Olympics. She is now a graceful young lady who proudly sports the dark purple lipstick. She is seemingly judged differently and far more harshly. She got nailed to the wall the other night for standing at with hand over heart instead of at attention, but look at the picture of the GOP presidential candidate’s stance at a GOP debate. Where was the outrage? LA Times Bill Plaschke compared her gesture to the 1968 track  runners who raised clinched fists during the playing of the National Anthem. Really? Give Gabby a break. There was no shade here. Michal Phelps was laughing during the ceremony but that’s ok. Douglass has grown up and she is learning that she must play by a new  set of rules and that is simply sad.

Was Malia Obama smoking spot?


Well Malia Obama seems to be smoking something. it might be pot. So what does this say. It says she is an 18 year old making her own decisions. Parents try to instill values and common sense into their children but 18 year olds are responsible for their own decisions.
