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.

Death of a Prince…Now the Questions

Yesterday the artist known as Prince died. We are all still in shock but it interesting to see how yesterday was all about the loss and today is all about the why. What happened? How did he die? Today people are talking about drugs in his system. Why do we build someone up and then try to demolish the icon created? Share your thoughts.

Kelly Ripa a no show after Michael Strahan announces his departure


Not political but simply interesting. Michael Strahan is leaving the Kelly & Michael show to become a full time member of Good Morning America. Kelly Ripa did not know this was in the works until the last minute. She was a no show today on their show. Her response can only be described as interesting.

Hillary Clinton is just like me…she carries hot sauce in her purse too except I don’t


Hillary Clinton is trying just a little too hard to identify with black people. She claims she carries hot sauce in her purse just like Beyonce. Really, I don’t believe it, but if she does it must be next to the fried chicken, watermelon and other ethnic stereotypes in that very big handbag.
