J Hud's Family Slain

I'm sure ya'll know by now I don't watch the news. So it was a complete and total shock to hear Jennifer Hudson's mother and brother had been shot to death, and her nephew is missing. Her brother-in-law has been named as a suspect. This is so horrible, especially so close to the holidays. Everyone says her mom was the last person this should have happened to. You can tell from Jennifer's bubbly personality her mom had to be a wonderful person. My prayers go out to Jennifer and her family, I pray for the safe return of her nephew, and may her mother and brother rest in peace. Please, if anyone knows anything about her nephew SPEAK UP. Stay strong, Jennifer. God bless you.
The body of a child has been found in an abandoned SUV, and it is believed to be the body of her nephew. My prayers go out to this family. Such a horrible, senseless tragedy.

Too Damn Funny

I'm going to hell in a handbasket, ya'll.

People Are Ignant

I hate to be posting this directly after that last post, but people need to be put on blast for the foolishness they are doing. And so close to the election, too.

Supposedly, some woman in PA was robbed at the ATM by a black male attacker. Then when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on her car, he used a dull knife to carve a "B" in her face. Are you for real, man? What in the hell? Now, I know some people have been pulling yard signs out of people's yards, but what in the hell were you thinking?! Barack don't need this kind of foolishness! And I bet this fool aint even gonna vote.

I can only hope it's not true, cuz the article does mention police have gotten conflicting stories, and the "B" on her face is backwards, like it would be if someone did it to themselves while looking in the mirror. I'm just sayin...

Anyway, Barack doesn't need anymore negative attention! So boo to you, you damn fool!


Life Without Black Folks

*I got this in an e-mail, and its kinda long, but makes you think.*

A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of white people who were fed up with African Americans, so they join together and wish themselves away. They passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in sort of a twilight zone where there is an America without black people.

At first these white people breathe a sigh of relief. At last, they say, no more crime, drugs, violence and welfare. All of the blacks have gone!! Then suddenly, reality sets in. The "NEW AMERICA" is not America at all--- only a barren land.There are very few crops that have flourished because the nation was built on a slave-supported system.

There are no cities with tall skyscrapers because Alexander Mils, a black man, invented the elevator, and without it one finds great difficulty reaching high floors.

There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man, invented the automatic gear shift, Joseph Gammell, also black, invented the Super Charge System for Internal Combustion Engines, and Garrett A. Morgan invented the traffic signals.

Furthermore, one could not use the rapid transit system because its precursor was the electric trolley, which was invented by another black man, Elbert R. Robinson.

Even if there were streets on which cars and a rapid transit system could operate, they were cluttered with paper because an African American, Charles Brooks, invented the street sweeper.
There were few if any newspapers, magazines and books because John Love invented the pencil sharpener, William Purvis invented the fountain pen, Lee Burridge invented the Type Writing Machine and A.Lovette invented the Advanced Printing Press. They were all (you guessed it) black.

Even if Americans could write their letters, articles and books, they would not have been transported by mail because William Barry invented the Postmarking and Canceling Machine, William Purvis invented the Hand Stamp and Phillip Downing invented the Letter Drop.
The lawns were brown and wilted because Joseph Smith invented the Lawn Sprinkler and John Burr the Lawn Mower.

When they entered their homes, they found them to be poorly ventilated and poorly heated.
You see, Frederick Jones invented the Air Conditioner and Alice Parker the Heating Furnace. Their homes were also dim. But of course, stupid, Lewis Latimer invented the Electric Lamp, Michael Harvey invented the Lantern and Granville T. Woods invented the Automatic Cut off Switch. Their homes were also filthy because Thomas W. Steward invented the Mop and Lloyd P. Ray, the Dust Pan.

Their children met them at the door-barefooted, shabby, motley and unkempt. But what could one expect? Jan E. Matzelinger invented the Shoe Lasting Machine, Walter Sammons invented the Comb, Sarah Boone invented the Ironing Board and George T. Samon invented the
Clothes Dryer.

Finally, they were resigned to at least have dinner amidst all of this turmoil. But here again, the food had spoiled because another black man, John Standard invented the refrigerator. Now, ain't that something? What would this world be like without the contributions of Black folks?
Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "That by the time we leave for work we have been dependent on half the world-modern America is created by dependencies on the inventions from the minds of Black folks." Black history includes more than just slavery, Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey and Dubois. Black history is American History and the History of America would not be so, without Black people.

And if ya didn't know, now ya know.

*There wouldn't be an America without black people.*

Talk About A Bad Day At Work...

I wish there was sound to this...

Beyonce Changes Her Name

So, not only Bey finally confirmed her marriage, but she has also decided to change her name. But she isn't taking Camel's name. Oh no. She has joined the long list of musicians who decided to take on an alter ego. Her new name: Sasha Fierce. I'm sorry, but that name is a dud. She coulda picked something better. How in the hell did she even come up with that? Wuteva, Sasha, do you.
