Almost There…

So remember when I posted about 8 weeks back about researching my history? Sure you do. Oh, you don’t? Well, here’s a link to Discovering my past.

My results are finally moving along. They say that there was more demand so it took a toll on getting the results processed. Okay, cool. As long as it’s being processed I’m good. I was getting really nervous and was thinking maybe I’d been had. I’m in the final stages and I cant wait to finally get my results and share them with you. As an African American that was born and raised in the States, along with the rest of my family, I feel like I’m not connected to a culture because I don’t know my culture. Thanks to , you know slavery, selling of families apart from each other and rape of said slaves by their owners. Once I get my results I can feel more connected with my history so that I can plot my future. I’ll be back to update with results once I get them. I’m so excited and nervous at the same time.

Knock Me Down To Lift You Up

I’m just putting this out there and leaving it alone. When it comes to women’s empowerment, I’m all for it. But yes there is a but, you don’t need to tear men down or make them feel lesser so that you and your sisters can feel better. When you do this you are no better than the chauvinism that you are fighting against. Fuck your couch.

Another thing, right quick. Stop saying that you are givers of life. It takes two. And while I understand that you carry/incubate that child for 9 months and give labor to him/her, it was a man that provided the seed that grew. Again, don’t discredit me to make you feel better about yourself. Agree or disagree, I really don’t care. These are my thoughts and that’s how I feel. I will support you and your movement for proper recognition, rights, pay and all of that. I draw the line at knocking me down to lift you up. That is all. Have a great day.

Dipset Dipset Dipset

I’ve been listening to a good amount of older hip hop recently. Like I just went through my Dipset discography. Yes, I think they are one of the dopest movements in hip hop, but that’s just my opinion, not really based on fact or anything just my bias towards Cam and Juelz Santana. I miss that old(er) music. I don’t want to seem like a mid to late 30’s guy that’s all like “I grew up on real hip hop and everything else is trash”. I mean I do like some of the new rap that’s out now. Not sure where I was going with this other than I would love a Dipset reunion.  That would be awesome but alas I feel that it will never happen. At least not with everyone, the whole gang will never be back together.

I don’t know what it was/is about them that I like so much. I mean they rap about Harlem a lot and I’m not from there. They rap about money, drugs and women. I don’t have money, don’t do drugs, and not much of a ladies man. I think maybe its just the beats and flow? I don’t know, I just find myself nodding my head and reciting rhymes like I’m in a pink fur chilling in a pink Range Rover with an american flag bandana.  ehh…  Anyway, the Diplomats aka Dipset aka Cam and nem boys are one of my favorite groups. You don’t like it? Ehhh.. Your opinion doesn’t matter. I likes what I likes.

Let’s Talk About It

New podcast coming soon… Just a little something where I chat it up with my friends and other people that inspire me to be the best that I can be. Stay tuned for more info as time goes by.  Links for iTunes, google play and such to come. Right now you can follow me on soundcloud.com at

US Appeals Court Rules on Trump’s Muslim Travel Ban

Looks like the travel ban, that the Trump adminstration keeps saying is not a ban while still calling it a ban, has been struck down. For the time being at least. The appeals court has ruled against such ban but I’m sure they will find a way around this and further stereotype and unjustly persecute people and sent them from entering this country based on their religious beliefs. Kind of ironic since this country was founded on religious freedoms. Yeah, those people that came here and “founded” this country did it due to religious persecution in their home country and wanted to be able to freely practice their religion without fear of death. I guess it only works that way if it’s the Christian religion that you serve. Anything else is unacceptable.
