I was able to see “The Help” back in July for a pre-screen and even after sitting on the front row and watching the grossly distorted images courtesy of looking up vertical to a 30 foot screen, I walked away surprised at what I saw. I was happy to watch a movie that told the […]Read more "The Romanticized Victimhood of Black Women and “The Help”"
In light of the foolatry that has ensued behind the idea that the rapture is going to happen on May 21, 2011 (one of which where an atheist in Tennessee is watching the pets of those expected to get “caught up” and is NOT giving refunds come Sunday morning), I thought I’d add to the […]Read more "Watch Ye Therefore…The End Is Near!"
Okay, I watched the FAMU Sex Tape. I know I was supposed to give a response to Eddie Glaude’s article about the death of the Black Church, but this just seemed a bit more pressing. So some time last night, on Twitter of course, I started seeing one of my followers talk about a FAMU […]Read more "Yes, I Watched the FAMU Sex Tape"
I’ve been rather conscious in the past about not putting people on blast from my blog. It’s rather easy given that many of my topics are about religion and it’s rather easy to call out church names and pastor names. Aside from big timers like a T.D. Jakes or a Creflo Dollar or a Bishop […]Read more "Oh, P.S., On A Final Note…Since I have the floor…"
Well, I lied. I said I was going to wait until after August 16th to drop a post, but I lied. Circumstances dictated otherwise. My heart was ceremoniously grieved and broken when a couple of weeks ago Fly With Bats had posted something a new single called “Whip It Like A Slave.” And of course […]Read more "The Emergence of the Newer Negro"
Now I lived in New Orleans for a hot second amounting to three years of my life, and it was just kind of common fun to poke fun at the kids from Shreveport, or as they said Port City. It was a fair number of people from Shreveport that I went to school with down […]Read more "I Have No Words: Hurricane Chris Performs for Louisiana State Legislature"

Okay, yeah, I’m late. It’s February and I’m just now writing this post. Oh well, the joys of having one’s own blog. In short, the Inauguration Planning Committee had an EPIC FAIL when it came to the idea of tickets. So this was the largest we’ve had on record, apparently the city was planning […]Read more "I Still Got My Blue Ticket because [turn to your neighbor and say] “Favor ain’t Fair”: an Uppity Negro Inauguration story, Part Two"
1. Ms. Marquadt. A cat jumping off the Empire State Building. It’s official, I’m not a friend of Kara right about now. She has totally thrown it off. But, she sounded a hawwwwt mess. A cat sitting under a rocking chair. Hmm…she got a booty. What, why did her family and friends act like she […]Read more "UNN Live Blogging of American Idol–Pt. 2 (First Hour Only)"
I just realised that I could do this live blog…. In the spirit of all that doesn’t matter to life and all that has no intrinsic value; in the spirit of that which is for nothing more than entertainment value, I will stupidly live blog this. 1. Who the hell was this Twann guy. […]Read more "UNN Live Blog of American Idol (for the first hour only, I have other stuff to do)"
