Proud of America

I agree with Michelle Obama. This may not be the first time but it is one of the times I can say I am proud of America and proud to be American. That's because her husband is in line to become the first African American president and his campaign has brought out more voters than ever. For those hypocrites who act like she said something wrong, be for real. Unless you are deaf, dumb and blind, you can't convince me that you HAVE ALWAYS been proud of your country. I was not proud of the Vietnam war. I was not proud of the assasinations of both Kennedys, King, Sean Bell (yes it was an assasination), etc. I was not proud of the election fiasco during the last election. Not proud of the war in Iraq and as an African American, I am truly ashamed of this country and this government's response to Katrina and it's victims. Did anyone notice that when Hurricane Rita hit soon after Katrina, those folks, mostly white, were allowed to board buses as whole families and even allowed to take their pets. Is that blatant racism or what??? So yes, I am proud of my country but this is not always the case. I am very proud of the fact that I can disagree with what is going on in this country and not go to jail or get killed (hopefully). So let's keep things in perspective, shall we?

Enough is enough

Go to to see article on Fox News and their racist remarks concerning the Obamas and their lame apologies. Site shows other high profile events and how you can get involved (Katrina, etc.) Check it out. Get involved.

What's wrong with this picture?

Take a look at a news stand. Notice that the magazines showing African-American women show them practically naked. Is that the only way we can sell magazines? Is that all Black women are good for, showing booty all the time? Look at the other magazines. Except for a picture or two of Britney showing all her business getting out of some car, the cover girls are dressed very nicely. So what is the problem? Why are our women dressed liked this?

Am I the only one that thinks this is wrong? Sure the cover models are making money but what image are they giving to young girls? We talk about rap music being negative (some of it). What about these images that flash across every news stand? When will we learn? Read the Willie Lynch speech and you will know what I mean? Slave mentality is alive and well in our community and we are perpetuating it, not the white man.

As Bill Cosby says, "Come on People!"

Michelle Obama

Did you see Michelle on The View? Sistah Girl was fabulous! She needs to have her own show!!! Can't wait for her to get into the White House.

Public Money

What is all the hoopla about Obama not taking public money. All the money he receives is public money. The money his supporters contribute is public money so what is the problem? The reporters have nothing else to do but dissect every thing the man says. Get a life!

If you want some really, really great food, check out COLORS at 417 Lafayette St in Manhattan (Astor Place). These are the survivors of Windows on the World restaurant from the World Trade Center. Small bar in front, soft music playing in background and the food is WONDERFUL. This was my first time there. I recommend the Chilean Bass. Cannot describe how delicious it was. You must try it put for yourself. I intend to make this a regular stop. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Check it out.

History in the making

What a wonderful event to witness. An African American man is the Democratic nominee for President (and I have it on good authority that he will get the position!!!) Dr. King said he may not get to the promised land with us but we as a people would get there. Well, we are on our way to getting there. Think of the implications. Contrary to popular belief, the world is made up of "colored" people, red, brown, yellow and black. And there are more colored people than white. And quite a few of those white people support the change that Senator Obama will bring. So can you imagine the ripple going around this planet right now? WOW. This is a wonderful time to be American, a wonderful time to be an African American. No matter who you supported up to this point, history is being made.

Who is this Mystery?

Who is this mystery that beckons me from afar?
Who is this mystery who shares my thoughts in the night season?
Who is this incredible, fabulous mystery willing to soar the universe with me?
Who is this mystery, not intimidated by my expressions of greatness?
Who is this mystery, comfortable in his own self?
Who is this loving, giving mystery?
Who is this mystery who understands the inner most secrets of my soul?
Who is this mystery willing to reveal his empire to me?
Who is this mystery so powerful and yet so gentle?
Who is this mystery, this knight, this hero, this king, willing to name me?
Who is this mystery that I give my love to?

My beloved mystery. My wonderful secret.

What do I want?

A man who loves me, exclusively me, a lifelong love, with no other women in his life romantically. I was going to say a man who loves God more than me but do I really want that? Let me explain. I think of the the homes in ruin because the man put God first to the neglect of his family. Men who were so married to the Church that they neglected their wives. One Apostle from Louisiana said God told him, "you take care of that woman. My job is to take care of My Woman, the Church."

It seems to me that we need to have a balance here. If loving God means neglecting me, then that's not God. Does that mean I put God second? No! God is all in all. It's an automatic that I love God. So do I want someone who loves God to the exclusion of me? Or do I want someone who loves me so deeply that he recognizes God in me?

I do not believe Adam loved God so much that he neglected Eve. As a matter of fact, God was not enough for Adam! In Genesis 2:18, God said it is not good that man should be alone. I will make him an help meet for him." But I thought Adam was communing with His Creator every day? Gives one pause to think. After all, all the animals, birds, fish, bugs, etc had mates. (Remember Noah's ark?) Adam had God, the Creator of the Universe. Yet he needed more. And God did not rebuke him, He blessed him with a mate. SELAH.

Makes us wonder, don't it?

(We won't even talk about the influence Eve had which was apparently stronger than God's directive.)

Law of Supply

Nothing is in short supply if you believe. This is what Walter Malone said about the Law of Supply.

"They do me wrong who say I come no more, When once I knock and fail to find you in; For every day I stand outside your door, and bid you wake, and rise to fight and win."

"Wail not for precious chances passed away, Weep not for golden ages on the wane! Each night I burn the records of the day--At sunrise every soul is born again!"

Isn't that beautiful??

Destiny Awaits

Hello and blessings to one and all.
This is my first attempt at blogging and I'm looking forward to a thrilling ride. I will be exploring some thoughts on spirituality, life in general, a little politics, fun stuff like great restaurants, fabulous jazz, etc. Of course, this will probably not all be on the same blog. Like I said, I am new to this so bear with me AND be kind.
