~This is not a bakery.
I don’t sugar coat anything.
If you ask for my opinion . . . then that’s what you’ll get.
Don’t be mad when it’s not what you want to hear.~
“Knowledge is Power, Sharing it is Empowerment”
“We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth … For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth: to know the worst; and provide for it.” Patrick Henry
“Speaking Truth to Power”
“I swore never to be silent whenever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”- Elie Weisel
I am a grown man and I say grown man stuff so if you don’t like what I say, how I say it, then this site may not be for you. I found out that when I am dealing with certain folks I have to deal with them a certain way so they can get it. I can be nice but I can also get ignant.
I love to play the devil’s advocate and say things that others are afraid to say because they can’t take the heat. I will say things to make people bring out the best and/or worst in them. Some folks can’t take the feedback received because they can’t take getting their feelings hurt. I can take the feedback received because I feel the only way to have a healthy discussion is to play the devil’s advocate especially when the majority is for something. I believe when folks are dealing with issues they need to think about the pros and cons. When the pros and cons are dealt with then and only then I feel the issues have been dealt with in its totality.
There are so many folks who are afraid to talk about “RACE Relations” so some of the information here may not be what you want to read however you have options and I will let you figure out what they are. Hint: Don’t read it!
I don’t make the news, I just report it. I don’t make up rumors, I just share them. I don’t discriminate when it comes to holding black, brown, white and other folks accountable for their actions. I have no permanent friends, no permanent enemies only permanent interest in what is going on around me. I also ask that others hold me accountable for my actions.
This site is geared to promoting black and brown folks but not limited to. All black and brown people are not on drugs, in jail, unemployed nor on welfare. The majority of us are intelligent, hard working, God-fearing and productive citizens. Those of us who are not caught up in the system were all of this and then some long before the first black President Barack Obama became our 44th President of these United States so don’t get it twisted. So in other words do not think that “Race Relations” is no longer needed because in my opinion we need it more today than ever before. There are many folks who are not of color who do not want to accept our new President. This means that our generation will have to pick up from where the generations before us left off.
I challenge all black and brown individuals, elected officials, churches, sororities, fraternities and other organizations to get involved in making a difference in our communities.
Thank you for visiting me on the web. Please tell your family and friends to visit also.
“I Love You & It Ain’t Nothing You Can Do About It!!!”
“I have no permanent friends, no permanent enemies only permanent interest.” So having stating that, I look forward to being able to agree to disagree with others as we move forward in doing and saying what we all feel is within the best interest of all whom are involved.
