We support Monique!!!

When I first heard of the incident between Monique and Lee Daniels I supported her. It's hard out here for "black" actors and actresses. It's very disheartening to see us do this to each other. I always thought she was telling the truth about being black balled. I think the higher ups are use to "black" people doing whatever they say when it comes to their career (or anything). And of course when we give the least lil bit of attitude we are labeled "difficult". Below is a video of her explaing everything down to a T. Enjoy! 

 

These celebs be lyin........

Broke people out here getting broker trying to stunt like these "rich" people and the "rich" are saving money and just lying to us. Love the fact that Chad is smart. Hate the fact that he is just now letting us know. He's participating in the whole illusion of "celebrity" and got people who have no money falling for it. Shouldn't he have been telling us this years ago? Shouldn't this have been his image years ago? These celebs fake AF. Kinda effed up, if you ask me.

Chad. You foul. 

Black people claim their "pro black" but are really "pro white"

Let me first say that this post has nothing to do with the brothers in the photo. I think they are awesome. I think they are brilliant. I think they are smart. I am not attacking them or anyone who gets accepted into any school at all.

If "Black" Americans truly want to be taken seriously, we have to stop giving white society all of our praise and energy. We have to stop treating everything that they have like the rarest, most valuable piece of jewelry. We have to take the value out of their culture and ideologies and insert it back into our own.  

We can't hold their accolades and institutions to a higher regard and then turn around and attempt to be "pro black" or "black and proud". Can a people truly be "proud" of who they are and simultaneously believe what another culture is, says, or thinks is not only better, but the best that there ever is, was, and will be? 

Do we understand what the terms "pro black" and "black and proud" are supposed to mean?

It doesn't mean celebrating our musicians winning awards given to them by a predominantly white academy. It doesn't mean sending our children off to white schools (that more than likely had ties to slavery) that will link them into mostly white networks. It doesn't mean sending our athletes off to make colleges and universities millions and then sending them to the pro leagues so they can be used and abused even more.

Nor does it mean not getting the Grammy or Oscar and claiming they're "#sowhite" . It doesn't mean not getting into whichever school and then claiming the system is "racist".

We have to stop giving away all of our brightest, most talented, smartest, and beautiful people. We give them all of our excellence. We can't continue to look for acceptance and validation from them and then strive for any type of sanity as a people. We'll never get it. As long as we are letting other people tell us who and what we are, we will forever be an enslaved people.

If you ask me, I think we are more "pro white" than "pro black" because to us, it's so obvious that "white" is better. 

 

How long is too long to wait on a text back?

I thought this topic would just be for my single readers in the "dating pool" but I'll let the "taken" in on it too. Haha 

I went on a date with someone I met and the date went well. Afterwards we've been texting back and forth but replies have been inconsistent. There are times when we are texting back and forth as fast as we would be having a face to face coversation. Then there are times when 24hrs (and counting) will go by without a response. Im now reaching a point to where I don't really want to continue or pursue things any further because I don't want to deal with this frustration in any relationship. Rather it be platonic, romantic or business, communication is important. I often compare how someone communicates with you to how they repsect you. 

Of course soon as I officially throw in the towel I'll get a random text. 🙄🙄🙄

Also the non replies are random. It happens with conversations that I don't even start. I don't even text first anymore. I'm simply replying and engaging in convo and then everything just stops. 

 

What's your maximum amount of time to wait on a text back? At what moment do you  decided to take some sort of action. What exactly is that action? Do you call, cut off, or just keep sending more text? Comment down below.
