Common & John Legend Was All I Wanted To See During The 2015 Oscars

OPINION-I didn’t watch the Oscars last night. I attempted to watch it, but ten minutes in I felt the desire to watch Netflix. I didn’t miss much, with the exception of Patricia Arquette’s speech concerning equality for women. It’s a shame in 2015 we still asking to be treated fairly, but that is what happens […]

How To Know If You’re Wasting Time On The Wrong Man

“Is this really a relationship I should stay in?” I get this question several times a week from women who are feeling a sense of turmoil in their current relationship. If you are a woman who has come to a crossroads in your relationship and are trying to determine whether or not you are with […]

How Not To Approach Women: The Top 10 Experiences (Video)

Ladies, I’m sure plenty of us have experience the street harasser that roams one’s neighborhoods, concocting the most annoying display of buffoonery to attempt to get a ladies’ attention that I have every seen. Street harassment has been in place for quite some time, but I’m glad this video (even if it has a comedic […]

Old School Video of the Week: Luther Vandross – “Here and Now”

The year was 1989 when the late Luther Vandross released the single, “Here and Now” off his compilation album The Best of Luther Vandross…The Best of Love. During the late 80’s and well into the 90’s one couldn’t attend a wedding without hearing this beautiful ballad. It continues to be played at a lot of […]

Beyonce Should Have Stayed In Her Seat at the Grammys

OPINION – The Grammy Awards are finally over, and it took every ounce of me to remain awake, throughout the show. At some segments, I was fighting sleep until a few moments throughout, like Mary J. Blige and Sam Smith’s performance of “Stay With Me”.  By the way, Sam Smith’s awards were well deserved. Paul […]

If NYPD Commissioner Bratton Gets His Way, Resisting Arrest Will Be a Felony

OPINION-One has to hand it to these folks who are in a position of power, whose main quest is to continue the oppression by any means necessary against minorities. We have seen countless videos of the police inflicting their police brutality regimen against folks who aren’t resisting. When they are finished wearing out the victims, […]

AP SUPER BOWL FOOTBALL S FBN ENT USA AZ

The Super Bowl Half-Time Show Was a Win For Missy Elliot

OPINION-I finally gotten over (it didn’t take me long, I’m a New York football fan) that horrific play calling at the end of the Seattle vs. Patriots game during the Super Bowl. That last decision to pass instead of Marshawn Lynch receiving the handoff and running in the end zone like a bulldozer, was a […]

Who Needs Glee, Where You Can Get The Real Thing!

The recent video of a student at John F. Kennedy High in Patterson, New Jersey, who body slammed his Physics teacher because the teacher confiscated his cell phone, went viral. We tend to gravitate toward negative imagery that is seen all over the web (just check out the fight videos all over Facebook). When positive […]

When Conversations About Race Take Place On Social Media…

When it comes to conversations/debates about race on social media, interesting things occur when Black intellectuals enter the fiber-optic room. Many of us have been so well-trained by life experiences and through higher learning on how to dissect racism — from its origins on to its constantly evolving iterations over time — that it has […]

Church Shouldn’t Mirror the Night Club

  In many churches, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish them from nightclubs. The Apostle Paul delivered a New Covenant of Grace command to Believers: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will […]

Stuart Scott: July 19, 1965-Jan 4, 2015

“You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.”-Stuart Scott I remember when I used to work normal hours in the 90’s how I would begin my morning ritual. After I was done showering, making breakfast, I will then turn on the T.V. bypass the news […]

Jason Kidd Shows The Nets That Loyalty Is Obsolete

Share

OPINION- I am going to get straight to the point. Jason Kidd, who should be a first ballot hall of famer, was literally traded to the Bucks by the Nets for 2 second round draft picks (one in 2015 and another in ’19) and a quarter water (well not really) in order to sign on […]
