I’m tired of Black people who behave as if being “hood” is the essence of Black American (or Black Caribbean) culture. When did this nonsense start? To me, it’s no longer about being proud of the hood you came from or refusing to be ashamed of it. Now it’s like, “Let’s revel in and celebrate ignorance.” I can’t believe it but an aunt of mine is going around from family member to family member trying to collect money so when my uncle gets out of jail he will have some money in his pocket. WTH? What about those of us in the family who went to college? I don’t recall anyone taking up a collection for me when I was a starving student. I guess Chris Rock was right when he talked about people getting out of jail receiving a better welcome than those who just completed college. *sigh*
–This story has me pissed off to the highest level of pisstivity. It is clear to me that judge isn’t really concerned about upholding the law as much as he cares about using it to act on his/her own prejudices. I was sicked by most of the comments following this story. If some Muslims really believe that there are only “a few” cases of discrimination against Muslims (esp. hijab-wearing women) I ask you to read the comments. Yeah, most of the people can be written off as racists but I wonder how many of them would really say the disgusting things they’re saying in person. To me it goes to show how honest people will be when they can sit anonymously behind a computer. UGH!
-I am learning to no longer be shocked by some of things Muslims are doing. We live in today’s world where there’s a lot of crazy things going on. Yes, there are Muslims partaking in the madness. We’re gonna be influenced by our environment. We’re gonna lose people along the way. Ideally, yes, every Muslim would practice Islam fully and wholly. In the real world? Not so much. Lately, I’m hearing a lot of horrible stuff. Some of it would make your head spin. C’est lavie! Sad but true.
I can admit it, I’m addicted to Jamaican plays. Maybe it’s the drama. Maybe its the raw sense of comedy. I don’t know what it is but I confess, I love them! Si how mi love mix up? Cha!
-Who would even think there’d be a day when me, the tropical baby, would celebrate the temperature being 10 degrees? But after days of negative temperatures I was so happy to see today’s temperature. Depressing isn’t it? I miss Florida!
-Did anyone else see “Cadillac Records?” I saw it this past weekend. It was decent movie. Definitely worth it.
