Who Knew?

The memorial to honor Dr. Martin Luther King is more than 15 million dollars short of its 100 million dollar goal. We all can help! We owe this to this man, he whom endeared himself to the struggle in order for our people to have equal civil rights. We can do our part in making this goal a success. Lets "Band Together" for the "Build A Dream Campaign".

The Want Us To Kill Ourselves.....................

The civil right movement has came and gone. Here are the results: Nothing! After holding our people captive for so many years, we were let free to make something of ourselves. With a lack of resources and education, our black communities have turned into the very term used by society to describe it, the ghetto. While representing just 13 percent of society, more than a third of our community is in jail. We were forced to live in these areas. Only after the movements were wealthy blacks were able to move in more affluent areas. To say the history of this nation has played a major role in what is going on in the black community is an understatement. It is true that people are responsible for their own actions, but to also say that we have been given the right of any free person from the jump-start is a damn farce! If any of these factors exist in other communities, they would send in the National Guard.

First and foremost, We don't make any guns! So why are they so easily available in black communities. We don’t own Rugger or Smith & Wesson
We don’t have airplanes to bring drugs in this country! We don’t own airports or runways. Recognize that!
We don’t own no liquor stores but why is there one on every corner in black communities.
To put it bluntly, we own very few stores!
Yes we have drugs users and alcoholics in our communities, and so do you!
Yes, almost 70 percent of babies born in our communities are born out of wedlock.
Yes we represent 49% of all homicides committed in 2006. (Yet we represent 13 percent of the population)
Also, 91 percent of these deaths were at the hand of another black.
Yes, we represent more than half of HIV cases in America.
Yes 13 percent of our entire population is in jail.
Yes half of all women in jail are black.
Yes we have the highest teenage dropout rate in USA.
Yes the number one cause of death for men between the ages of 18-24 is homicide
Also, the number one cause of death for women ages 18-24 is A.I.D.S.
ETC, ETC, ETC…………………………………..

Now if any of these factors were prevalent in other communities it would be made an national disaster. They would bring in doctors to educate on HIV. If so many of their men were dying because of gun violence, they would send in the troops. They would have better drug outreach. They wouldn’t have gun stores in neighborhoods with high homicide rates. Their wouldn't be liquor stores on every corner. They would close at 8PM, just like in their neighborhoods. They wouldn’t allow companies in their communities to give out high interest short-term pay day loans. They wouldn't close down hospitals, schools, clinics and recreation centers. They wouldn't send their kids to schools without books, teachers, and heat or air condition. And I can go on and on but to what extent? They say to get rid of a problem; you must first identify it and take action to eradicate from your community. Yet we have no intervention for the problems in our community. Their only intervention is to take ownership of the ghetto land, moving us to other communities, where we still haven't addressed the issues prevalent in our own communities. Maybe when these problems start seeping into their communities will it become a society priority. The truth of the matter to why these issues exist is very simple: They want us to kill ourselves………….

Chronicles of a Blue Collar Black Man......

I smile at you and get nothing in return
You roll you eyes and you nose takes an upward turn
I look at myself...and say" Hum.....I know im fine"
I work real hard, I provide for myself and my kids, I know I gets mine
What can be her problem, I ponder in my head
So I speak to her instead and get no response again!
Dumbfounded, I tuck my pride aside
Watches her I as she gently take her strides
To the door...Through the door...... and out to the sidewalk
Another brother in a suit stops her and they begin to talk
What does he has on me to myself I ask
Maybe I tried to move in to fast
I'm a man..never can be the judge of another man but....
He aint got shyt on me......I know she aint blind, I know she see
That dude look like humpty dumpty far from height
And to compare his looks to mine......he makes me as JJ would say "Dynamite!!!!"
As they exchange cards, I let out a hardy laugh
Grabbed my stuff prepare myself to dash........then it hits me
It wasn't my looks that left her in discorn
It was this Damn Uniform..............

White Women's Opinion of Black Women

It seems that an article was written to Sister 2 Sister magazine by a Caucasian woman who requested a response from black men. I'm so glad she got what she asked for (and more)!!!Dear


I'm sorry but I would like to challenge some of your Black male readers.I am a White female who is engaged to a Black male-good-looking, educated and loving. I just don't understand a lot of Black female's attitudes about our relationship.My man decided he wanted me because the pickings amongst Black women are slim to none. As he said they were too fat, too loud, too mean, too argumentative, too needy, too materialistic or carrying too much excess baggage.Before I became engaged, whenever I went out I was constantly approached by Black men, willing to wine and dine me and give me the world. If Black women are so up in arms about us being with their men, why don't they look at themselves and make some changes.I am tired of the dirty looks I get and snide remarks when we're out in public. I would like to hear from some Black men about why we are so appealing and coveted by them.Bryant Gumbel just left his wife of 26 years for one of us Charles Barkley, Scottie Pippen, the model Tyson Beckford, Montell Williams, Quincy Jones, James Earl Jones, Harry Belafonte, Sydney Poitier, KofiAnan, Cuba Gooding Jr., Don Cornelius , Berry Gordy, Billy Blanks, Larry Fishburne, Wesley Snipes...I could go on and on. But, right now, I'm a little angry and that is why I wrote this so hurriedly. Don't be mad with us White women because so many of your men want us. Get your acts together and learn from us and we may lead you to treat your men better. If I'm wrong, Black men, let me know.

Poetry.............Slavery was a hard time, not a happy time

by Lerone Bennett

The slave trade was people living, lying, stealing, murdering and dying.

The slave trade was a Black man who stepped out of his hut for a breath of fresh air and ended up, ten months later, in Georgia with bruises on his back and a brand on his chest.

The slave trade was a Black mother suffocating her newborn baby because she didn't want him to grow up a slave.

The slave trade was a kind captain forcing his suicide-minded passengers to eat by breaking their teeth.

The slave trade was a bishop sitting on an ivory chair on a wharf in the Congo and extending his fat hand in wholesale baptism of slaves who were rowed beneath him, going in chains to the slave ships.

The slave trade was a greedy king raiding his own villages to get slaves to buy brandy.

The slave trade was a pious captain holding prayer services twice a day on his slave ship and writing later the famous hymn, 'How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds.'

The slave trade was deserted villages, bleached bones on slave trails and people with no last names.

The slave trade was Caesar Negro, Angelo Negro and Negro Mary.

You never know who thinks like you!

Message From The Man:

I want to thank Hollywood for his depiction of the black man. Now that our plan has worked, we have more ideas in the making to make our mission complete. Our Mission: Eradication of the black man. We are already locking them up in record numbers. We also have them believing that there only way out of their predicament is to sell drugs or become a rapper. We also by use of movies and plays, have there treasured black women turning their nose up to them. We have their women at odds with them, which creates more single family homes and unstable families. I want to thank all involved in our mission. Keep up the good work.

Oprah's Imbalanced Depiction of Black Men

by Shavar Jeffries

I love Oprah. She's a historic figure in Black America. Not only for her pioneering role both in front of and behind the camera, but more importantly for her legendary efforts to uplift some of the most dispossessed people of the world. I'm especially proud of her work to expose and undermine the patriarchy that too often confines the potential of women and warps the self-image of men.
But advocacy for women doesn't require denigration of men. If all I knew about Black women came from the Oprah Show, I'd believe they were strong, intelligent, beautiful, sensitive, caring, compassionate, spiritual, and selfless. In short, I'd know truths about Black women that are infrequently told by mass media. Yet if all I knew about Black men came from the Oprah show, I'd suspect they were lazy, womanizing, criminal-minded, predatory, and irresponsible. In short, I'd know stereotypes about Black men that are routinely signaled by mass media.Brothers, of course, have problems, and those problems should be discussed and challenged. But the world already knows that. The world doesn't know about the good, decent, hard-working Black men of character who struggle every day to do right by themselves and their families. Let's hope that Oprah can be a more meaningful part of balancing the depiction of Black men.


by Maya Angelou

BECAUSE we have forgotten our ancestors,our children no longer give us honor.

BECAUSE we have lost the path our ancestors cleared kneeling in perilous undergrowth,our children cannot find their way.

BECAUSE we have banished the God of our ancestors,our children cannot pray.

BECAUSE the old wails of our ancestors have faded beyond our hearing,our children cannot hear us crying.

BECAUSE we have abandoned our wisdom of mothering and fathering,our befuddled children give birth to children they neither want nor understand.

BECAUSE we have forgotten how to love, the adversary is within our gates, an holds us up to the mirror of the world shouting,"Regard the loveless"

Therefore we pledge to bind ourselves to one another, to embrace our lowliest, to keep company with our loneliest, to educate our illiterate,to feed our starving, to clothe our ragged, to do all good things,knowing that we are more than keepers of our brothers and sisters.

We ARE our brothers and sisters.

IN HONOR of those who toiled and implored God with golden tongues,and in gratitude to the same God who brought us out of hopeless desolation, we make this pledge.

Who Kids Are These?

You pride yourself as a parent. Getting up early in the morning to get to work, then heading straight to class right after that. You are supposed to be bettering yourselves, but while you are focused and disciplined at the task at hand, you are failing in others. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to understand where I'm going. That's right, I'm talking about our kids. Today's parents are so focused on their careers, that they fail in the category that means the most, raising our kids. Providing your kids with a roof over their head, clothes on their back and food in their belly no longer cuts it in this cut-throat world. Today's kids need structure, discipline, respect for others, and to be taught manners in order to navigate this wicked world filled to the brim with age old traps set to curtail their futures. Self respect is also needed. To walk around with your pants to your knees, with your butt showing is not respect for ones self. It is down right ignorant. When I was young, I also sagged my pants. This was out of necessity, being that my straight leg jeans that I got from my cousin no longer fit. That’s not the case with these kids. We as parents, work hard to provide for our kids. Being that we are buying the clothes our kids are wearing, we can at least tell them to pull up their pants. "Put a DAMN belt on!" is how I would put it. So parents, in between all the daily tasks at hand, take a look at your child. If he looks like he is representing you, and you have no problem with him dressing like the pic above, then you are the problem. If it downright offends you to see your kids dressing like that, do something about it. Tell them what it means to have self respect. That even though it is the style, you look like a damn bum. You would be doing the universe a favor. No one wants to see their scrawny butts anyways. Ooops! Maybe gay men, but that's a whole other subject.

Genocide..........This Goes Out To All My Baby Mamas............

If you have pride in yourself then this isn't for you. If you sit at home and watch television all day then this maybe for you.

Baby Mamas know the deal!
They know it so much that the have a book out detailing the ins-and -outs of getting black men money. The title..........drum roll


Check it out here:http://blackvoices.aol.com/blogs/2007/06/08/girl-get-that-child-support/

While I know the welfare of the child is the deal, but staying at home, collecting government benefits and child support truly doesn't make you woman. It make you a "BABY MAMA".

The Jena 6 Part 2 "A great distraction from the real issues".

9-26-2007There is a sad and disturbing lesson coming out of this “Jena 6” soap opera, that only a few people actually see what’s going on. Those who picked up on this who happen to be black will be dismissed as nothing more then “sellouts”, “Uncle Toms” or “Aunt Jemimas”. Those who picked up on this who are white will of course be labelled immediately as a “racist”. The story or lesson at play here is how most blacks in America deal with “internal” problems and “external” distractions. The whole “Jena 6” episode is an external distraction that is merely taking attention away from the real issues that are facing blacks in America. Blacks for the most part will never grasp that. Their mindset has been branded with the mark that their most pressing problems facing them in America is that of other races more so then themselves. That way of thinking is totally naive. Blacks say the Jena 6 were “victims”. Actually I agree in a different way. The Jena 6 were victims. They were victims “of their own actions first and foremost”. Why did an event such as this become the rallying cry or mating call to black race racketeers, crybabies, hustlers and panderers? This is what puzzles me the most. Blacks from across the country descended on to Jena Louisiana to protest what they deemed the unfair charging of six black youths that beat up one white youth. While this was going on, blacks were wearing black t-shirt and anything with black in it to show support of the “Jena 6”. Ok this is what I can’t figure out. Why can’t blacks show this type of support in fighting black on black crime and murder in their own communities? Who are the ones killing most black people in America in 2007? Is it the Klu Klux Klan? The Aryan Brotherhood? Neo Nazi Skinheads, Racist Polices forces? The answer is, are you ready for this? NONE OF THE ABOVE!! The Jena six are alive and well. Here in Baltimore for example two hundred and thirteen blacks can’t say the same thing. That’s because they are dead, and they weren’t killed by the entities I just mentioned. Other blacks killed them. In Baltimore over the last 15 years blacks have killed over 5400 blacks just here in Baltimore alone, and Baltimore isn’t an exception. Black murder rates are set to hit record levels this year. Cities leading in the blood shed are Richmond, Jersey City, Detroit, Richmond, New Orleans” post Katrina”, Chicago, Philadelphia, Memphis, Washington DC and Gary Indiana. Where are Sharpton and Al on all of this? I think Sharpton has more pressing issue to deal with I suppose. I guess trying to ban the “N” word is a higher priority. This is the real issue not the Jena 6. Of course what I say will be dismissed by those who would rather sweep all of what I say under the rug and forget about it. If a white neo-nazi took a sub machine gun and killed fifty blacks in a crowded urban area, blacks around the nation would be outraged and rightfully so. Yet when other blacks kill three hundred blacks, they don’t seem to care. If blacks only speak out against crimes against other blacks when the perpetrators are white, is this basically an acknowledgement saying that it’s ok for the crimes to happen as long as the perpetrators are black? Case in point, Lets say that the victim of the Jena Six wasn’t white but black. The scenario would now be six blacks beating up another black student. Now lets say that the six black attackers are charged pretty severely. Does anyone truly believe that this would now be a story? Would Jesse and Al and the rest of the faithful flock even care? Would this even make the CBS Nightly News, CNN, MSNBC etc? The answer of course is not! This isn’t so much about being concerned about what happens to blacks in America. It’s becoming crystal clear. The title of the new story should read“As long as whites aren’t the ones doing the murdering, assaulting, raping, poisoning the black community, etc we really don’t care one way or the other what happens”.

The Word Of The Day Is...................


Statistic is defined in Wikipedia as:

Statistic is a function of a sample where the function itself is independent of the sample's distribution.

I know, You don't understand.

I want to discuss it in a diffeent function. The function of criminalizing the Black race.

Did you know:

Blacks comprise only 13% of the population and account for about 13% of drug users but constitute 35% of all arrests for drug possession, 55% of all convictions on those charges, and 74% of all those sentenced to prison for possession.

Blacks are incarcerated at a rate that is more than 6 times that of whites.

The number of college-aged Black males in prisons and jails in the U.S is greater than the number of Black males enrolled in higher education.

The Black male homicide rate is 7 times the white male rate.

The death penalty has been imposed in 682 capital cases since 1995. The U.S. attorney recommended the death penalty in 183 of them-of those cases 26% involved white defendants, 74% "minority." Blacks make up 40% of the death row population.

Now arent those crazy statistics?

The reason I am writing about statistics is because my god-son was shot this weekend. Thank god he is alive. Did you also know:

More than 50 percent of homicide victims in the USA last year were, "You Know It", Black Men.

Through the grace of God, my god-son made it through. That is not the result in most cases. Parents please talk to your kids, Don let them be statistics...................

Crooked Officer.................

I was mad as hell. I just got my a$$ out of bed at 7:00 am to play a game at 9:00am. I was a bit sluggish from the night before, but I really wanted to play today. The game was at Largo High School. When we go there, we were informed that the schedule of games was running late. This meant that we had some time to get something to eat. "We were off", straight to Mickey D's, two friends, my buddies’ girlfriend, and myself. heading down the street, we noticed that we were being followed by PG County Police. My first response was why? Then we got the "siren" treatment. Pulled over to the side of the rode, we were all wondering why did this man started following us the first place. He announces he is PG Police, and the reason why he pulled us over was because while running the plates of my friend’s truck, the tags came back as suspended for failed emission test. My friend Keith was like, "What the F*ck?, I didn't know they suspend tags for that. I was like, "Why was he running the tags in the first place?" After my friend showed proof to the officer that this issue had been resolved, he then calls him out of the car. "He is gonna give him a ticket" I was thinking. His girlfriend, noticeably nervous, thought he was getting locked up. While that wasn't the case. The officer did have some more questions for him.
It went a little like this:

Officer: Where are you headed? (why did he ask that)
Friend: To get something to eat.

Officer: What business you have in this neighborhood? (again, Why?)
Friend: We have a game at Largo HS

Officer: How old is the young lady, and why is three men riding around with 1 girl?
Friend: That is my girlfriend.

Now the officer walks to the car, and asks, "Are you one of these guys girlfriend?"
She responds yes, to which he asks which one? Why? she responds. "We are just going to get something to eat"The officer finally allows us to leave. Sitting in the truck for over 40 minutes, we realize we don't have enough time to get something to eat now. We go back to gym and lose the game by four points. Hungry and mad that not only did we lose the game, we also became a statistic to racial profiling. The officer had no reason to target us. Only because he saw 3 men riding in an SUV, with a young lady, de he decide to run the plates. And what law practice says it OK to get behind certain people to run their plates. We weren’t speeding, just minding our business, trying to feed our stomachs, when we got enough injustice to feed our mind. My question to the officer is this: Why didn’t you follow the white driver that you were behind before you seen us? Four black people, driving in an SUV, Trying to get something to eat, last I read is not a crime. Why?

Oh Really.........................

Ya'll got 4 types of men.

The Word Of The Day Is...................

The word of the day is Genocide.

This is the definition taken from Wikipedia:

Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction of an ethnic, religious or national group.Also, any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."

We all know of the effects of Genocide in the black community and also abroad as it pertains to mother Africa. What I want to touch on is the effect it has on relations between genders in the black community.

The email I received last night really stuck a thorn in my side. While I am bantering on and on about systematic issues affecting or communities, it is in my opinion that what is really affecting our communities is "US". Man and Woman,Husband And wife, Boy and Girlfriend, Momma and Baby Daddy, Playa and Playette, or to keep it simple you and I.

We as a whole no longer support one another.

Women are so superficial, that while trying to find a ideal mate, they shun the brothers that are at least trying to better for themselves.

Men are running away from their responsibilities as parents. Leaving our women to raise our men.

Women, taking handouts from the government rather then getting a job, leaving a lasting impression on our daughters who in turn will someday grow up to be just like YOU.

Men rather than getting a real job, subcombs to the trap that is set for them: prison.
Rather getting up and going to work, they go to the corners to sell THAT work.

Women, with a what is good for the goose is good for the gander attitude, no longer value theirbody. What happened to making a brother wait. Oh, Like they saying goes, If you can do it, I can too. Wait, didn't you say our doggish way's were bad? Baby you are a queen, not a playa.

I can go on and on but if we really want to fix the problems going on in our communities, we must first start with "US". The Black Man and The Black Woman.If we work together, not against each other, maybe we can become more stronger in our relationships, communities, and within our race in general. Peace and Blessing............
