I haven’t been writing as much as I should. I’m going to try to correct that in the new year. Anywhoo, a lot is going on these days, so I’m going to start posting some random thoughts and I’m sure expound on some of these later.
1. Why does it always take so long for organizations to recognize that their employees are pedophiles? Priests, football coaches, teachers, etc can all be seen with young boys and young women in compromised ways but yet no one sees or tells until the person is dead or more than 50 years old?
2. Herman Cain never had a chance. Really. If America is shocked by the turn of events that lead to him leaving the race, then our school systems really are failing us.
3. There was an uproar from women’s orgs and birth control supporters about the sale of Plan B contraceptives to teens being blocked. I need NOW, Planned Parenthood and all the other orgs that spoke out to be just as vocal about STDs like AIDS. Get on the bandwagon for a cure people. Sure, a teen could get pregnant and need Plan B or opt for an abortion, but there is not medical treatment or pill to get rid of HIV, HPV, etc. The issues are more complex than just birth control.
4. Newt Gingrich can’t be president of the United States because…

Black actresses need to thank God that “Black Don’t Crack”. Apparently HD brings out every little flaw.
I saw “Sex and the City 2″ Thursday and I’m telling you, HD film is NOT forgiving! Not at all. All of the ladies looked much older than in the first film. Even Charlotte, who was so youthful looking, was showing major signs of aging (most notably in the chin area). SJP has always shown her age and is not a Botox or surgery girl so I wasn’t surprised at how she looks. I will say, Samantha looked the best out of all 4.
I really would have expected that they’d found some way to filter out the harshness of HD. Whoo! Makeup Artists, you have your work cut out for you. Sistafriend actresses, ladies let’s hope that the Melanin and some good moisturizers helps your black not to crack.
Damn. Black Women, we have been dealt another blow.
I’m still reeling from the HIV/AIDS stats that came out last year, so this is terrible to hear. By-the-way, bid you know today, March 10th is Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day 2010? HIV has now become the leading cause of death among Black women ages 25 to 34. Add to that the news that CDC is reporting that 48% of Black Women in America have herpes, and you have a serious problem that no one is talking about. (Overall, the CDC estimates that one in six Americans is infected with the herpes virus.)
Black folks, we typically don’t discuss our sexual business in public, but I think we need to start being more open and honest about our sex lives. Education and Accountability are in order.
Where is the black church on this? Where is the outrage from our “leaders” and calls for education and personal responsiblity? Black women are the backbone of our communities and they are facing a major challenge. What are your thoughts on this?
This woman can not lead this country and is not fit to be VP. Click here for the video from CBS NEWS.
I’m sorry, I just needed to say that. She sounds stupid…actually. I know she’s likely a bright woman, but she should know better than than to let her campaign handlers send her out unprepared. That is just dumb.
This is from a few months ago…still love it!!!! Hilarious!
