Does the word sassy bother you?

Last night while watching Being Mary Jane I was struck by a single word used repeatedly. That word was “sassy”. Mary Jane’s boss was expressing his disappointment at her behavior and he said that she had been sassy two different times during that week. Why did they use that word in the script? it just seems that particular word is used more often to describe the behavior of black women. Share your thoughts.

Has the Age of the Agitator ended?

We just saw the president of a university resign after intense pressure from the students. The students protested, one graduate student went on a hunger strike, some faculty members walked out and the football team vowed not to play. With the pressure increasing the president had no choice. This was accomplished without the aid of an outside agitator. No Al or Jesse was anywhere to be found. No shade to Al or Jesse just a fact. People united can make a difference without the aid of an outside agitator.

University of Missouri President resigns, but says this is not how change should happen

The University Of Missouri football team refused to take the field this weekend. That act cast the school 1 million dollars, and today after weeks of protest the president stepped down. In his resignation speech he said this is not how change should happen, but radical acts help facilitate change and when a university starts losing money that too can be a catalyst for change.

We knew Greg Hardy beat up his girlfriend, but why are we appalled when we see the photos?

Dallas Cowboy Greg Hardy beat up his girlfriend, but he is still in the NFL. He has been playing and the team stood by him, but Friday photos were released showing his brutality. Sports pundits are feigning indignation in light of the pictures. So his actions only became real when we could see them? Ray Rice knocked his fiancee out and got a 3 day suspension, but when the tape was released so was he. Chris Brown brutalized Rihanna, and when those photos were released he became the poster child for domestic violence. So its like when a tree falls in the forest an no one hears it did it really happen or matter? If we don’t see it even though the details are all there on the police report we are not convinced until we see the bruises. What does that say about us?

Where is the perfect presidential candidate?

2016 presidential contenders include: an egomaniac, a socialist, a liar, a man who can’t keep his campaign money separated from his personal money, a failed Fortune 500 executive, a man born with a silver spoon in his mouth who never learned to fight, a man who overcame the hood to perform amazing surgery, a man who can’t get along with his colleagues, a man who has a problem saying no to donuts, a man who stands proudly with lawbreakers and a man that is a military hawk. All of these people want sit in the oval office and none of them are perfect. We have that in common with them, but even if you disagree with them they are doing something. They have an idea and a commitment to this country. So as we sit on our couches with our popcorn waiting on the next shoe to drop give them a little credit for at least being willing to try.

Is CNN on a Dr. Carson witch hunt?

CNN seems to be on a mission, and that is to destroy Dr. Ben Carson, They are going full throttle in pursuit of dirt on the doctor. Prior to this I really did not have Carson on my radar, but their relentless pursuit of dirt is making me take a second look at the good doctor. Politico is also doing their due diligence to take potshots at the good doctor. The doctor is the front runner and with that brings more scrutiny but where is this zeal when it comes to Donald Trump? They are afraid of Trump and not Carson, but let’s us not forget Carson said he has his anger issues under control, but I don’t think it is wise to push it.
