When Blackface Isn’t Blackface

OMG. I cannot believe the backlash against this photo. Blackface? REALLY? First of all, this doesn’t look like blackface to me. There was/is nothing remotely pretty about Blackface. It’s a very ugly crude caricature of what are supposedly typically “Negroid” features: dark skin, bigger lips and nose than European features…it’s ugly, because those features were […]

Some People Are So Confused

OMG. There’s been so much going on in the news and in life that I hardly know where to begin. Today I read that Raven-Symone said she is “from every continent in Africa except one, and from every continent in Europe except one.” Now, that’s just sad. So so sad. This type of ignorance just […]

Oh, Chris Brown, What is WRONG With You

I’m not a HUGE follower of pop culture. Most of it is total crap these days. When you have reality shows based on watching people act ghetto or redneck, and most of today’s songs are some variation of “ooh, baby, baby” about waking up next to someone you don’t remember after a night of senseless […]

I Am Officially No Longer A Lexapro Ho, Whoo Hoo!!!

Hey folks, I got a song for ya to sing: (to the tune of Happy Birthday – the real version, not the Stevie Wonder MLK version. I hate that crap. I mean, I like the real song but I don’t like to hear it sung at a regular birthday party. It just…rankles.) Congratulations to me, […]

Unreality

If you’ve read my About page – and really, by now, you should have – you know that I hate reality shows. I mean, HATE THEM WITH A PASSION. There’s nothing remotely REAL about the Kardashians and they life they live. Or the Basketball Wives. Or whoever the hell else is on there, I don’t […]

What I Have That Lolo Jones Doesn’t

So yesterday the Tech Guru and I were watching the Olympic Trials in Track & Field. This is MUST-SEE TV in this house. Lolo Jones, who fell down in Bejing during the 100-m hurdles and totally embarrassed herself, poor thing, came in 3rd in the Finals in Oregon and qualified to go to London representing […]

Delusions of Grandeur

One of my great-grandfathers used to talk about people who walked around with “delusions of grandeur,” this idea of their own overwhelming importance. I would say that definitely has to apply with Beyonce and Jay-Z, given all I’ve heard about the prep that went into the arrival of their baby. I mean, they have lots […]

Ooh! I Love How BIG It Is!

Admit it…you wanted to see if I was talking about The Tech Guru’s manhood, didn’t you? Sorry, folks. Catch me when I’m drunk and I’ll go into graphic detail, but for now…no. What I am talking about – and I shock myself with this one – is the whole Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries engagement thing. I […]

I Almost Didn’t Post This But LeVar Burton Kind Of Said It Was Okay

I saw this thanks to someone who tweeted a link to it, and thought it was the funniest thing I have seen in forever.  If it’s not your cup of tea, too bad for you, but I loved it. Why didn’t I almost post it? Well, I tweeted the person it’s about to see if […]
