KWANZAA DAY 6: KUUMBA (Creativity)


(6) KUUMBA (Creativity) to inspire ourselves to keep developing new ways of expressing our music and art as well as being creative In our work and industrial pursuits. To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

SIDEBAR: Music and the arts are probably the highest form of expression of the human mind, body and spirit. Music embraces vibrations and sound that can send the body and mind into another state of being, thinking and living. Coupled with words, music can encourage us to either be creative or destructive.

In 2010, let those who have been given musical talent use their talent to lift the world to higher state of living and being. Let those who have been blessed with oratory skills use those skills to paint loving and unifying images within the minds of the hurting and downtrodden. Let those that are blessed with artistic abilities paint or draw pictures that direct humanity to a place of peace and calm.

A community is only as beautiful as the people that inhabit it. We (not God) are responsible for the well being of this earth and the inhabitants living thereon. Together, we can do this!!!




Hold On (Change Is Comin') by Sounds of Blackness
Yesterday a man stepped to me he said "how can u smile when your world is crumbling down?"
I said,"here's my secret," ooo," when I wanna cry, i take a look around and I see that I'm getting by and I hold on

(chorus)
Hold on:change is coming
hold on: don't worry bout a thing
Hold on:you can make it
Hold on: everything'll be alright

Some people like to worry; some people like to hide some people like to run away from the pain inside.
Now it's your business; do whatever you wanna do; but if it don't work out here's what you oughta do now just hold on

Repeat chorus 2x's

When the troubles of life weigh you down; just lift your head up yeah, yeah; when the love you seek is hard to find; don't giv up, just be strong, keep the faith and hold onnnnnnnnnnn

KWANZAA DAY 5: NIA (Purpose)


(5) NIA (Purpose) building and developing our national community. To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

SIDEBAR: With the negative portrayal of American Blacks in all forms of media and entertainment, each of us should commit to restoring our greatness. From feminization of our young men to pimping of young women, the music industry has been the top tool used to destroy the minds and souls of our young people.

It is time to stop the foolishness and hold the media giants accountable for their participation in the destruction of the young Black minds.

1 Timothy 6: 6-12
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

RIP ANN NIXON COOPER


Ann Nixon Cooper, the 107-year-old Atlanta woman whose name President Barack Obama invoked when he gave his historic election speech last year, died Monday afternoon around 3:30 p.m.

Then President-elect Obama called Cooper an example of "the heartbreak and the hope," noting that she'd lived long enough to remember when African-Americans weren't allowed to vote and that she finally was able to help elect the country's first black president. (Source)

KWANZAA DAY 4: UJAMMA (Cooperative Economics)


(4) UJAMAA (Cooperative Economics) which is the habit of sharing our wealth and resources. To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.


Sidebar: After experience racism from my former employer that compromised my health and could have bankrupt my family, I realized the importance of creating multi-streams of income. Bishop TD Jakes once did a sermon in which he stated that there were four streams flowing to and from the Garden of Eden that nurtured it; therefore, we should have at least four streams (sources) of income so if one stream dries up you have three others to sustain.

With jobless-rates hitting the Black community at an alarming rate, wealth building and job creation must be our next Civil Rights Moment. Although we have more Blacks holding college degrees and elected to public office (including the Presidency), Blacks still significantly lag behind when comes individual and community wealth creation and maintenance.

According to Targetmarketnews.com, Blacks spent $656 billion in 2003. So our problem is definitely not spending. The problem is keeping our dollars within our own community in order to build our own wealth infrastructure before our dollars leave the community to make another community rich.

Therefore, it is time to strengthen our Black entrepreneurs by patronizing their businesses so that they can hire more black employees. It is time that our Black employees (those that are not called to be entrepreneurs or business owners) to practice a strong work ethic that contributes to the success of the business of their employer. Black employers must not adopt the evil ways of Corporate America by treating their employees with disdain without regard for the well being and well being of their families. Once we accumulate wealth we must not irresponsively spend a great amount of it on items that don't appreciate or grow our wealth.

Financial advisor Brooke Stephens points out in her book Talking Dollars and Making Sense, making money is important, but saving it is more important. Stephens cautions that while the African American community can be proud of contributing hundreds of billions to the nation's economy, it's essential not to lose sight of the importance of savings in creating economic empowerment and building personal wealth. "You're not building wealth if you use all your money for consumption," she writes. "Real wealth is being able to say, 'I have the freedom to do what I want with my life, and I don't have to stay in this job if I don't want to.'" (Source)

Black Enterprise magazine has created the Circle of Wealth, a black wealth initiative that seeks economic empowerment for African Americans by changing attitudes toward money management. The Circle is an ongoing cycle comprised of 1.) Knowledge, 2.) Commitment, 3.) Investment, 4.) Portfolio Management, and 5.) Wealth, all enabling Reinvestment in Children, Businesses, and Community.

As part of this powerful initiative, the magazine developed the Declaration a Financial Empowerment, the following 10–point wealth–building pledge:

"I, from this day forward, declare my vigilant and life–long commitment to financial empowerment. I pledge the following:

To save and invest 10 to 15 percent of my after–tax income.
To be a proactive and informed investor.
To be a disciplined and knowledgeable consumer.
To measure my personal wealth by net worth not income.
To engage in sound budget, credit, and tax management practices.
To teach business and financial principles to my children.
To use a portion of my personal wealth to strengthen my community.
To support the creation and growth of profitable, black–owned enterprises.
To ensure my wealth is passed onto others.
To maximize my earning power through a commitment to career development, technological literacy and professional excellence."


Proverbs 22:7
The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.


Deuteronomy 8:18
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

RIP PERCY SUTTON, FAMOUS CIVIL RIGHTS LAWYER AND SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN



From Yahoo.com

By CRISTIAN SALAZAR, Associated Press Writer Cristian Salazar, Associated Press Writer – Mon Dec 28, 2:52 am ET

NEW YORK – Percy Sutton, the pioneering civil rights attorney who represented Malcolm X before launching successful careers as a political power broker and media mogul, has died. He was 89.

Marissa Shorenstein, a spokeswoman for Gov. David Paterson, confirmed that Sutton died Saturday. She did not know the cause. His daughter, Cheryl Sutton, declined to comment Saturday when reached by phone at her New York City home.

The son of a former slave, Percy Sutton became a fixture on 125th Street in Harlem after moving to New York City following his service with the famed Tuskegee Airmen in World War II. His Harlem law office, founded in 1953, represented Malcolm X and the slain activist's family for decades.

The consummate politician, Sutton served in the New York State Assembly before taking over as Manhattan borough president in 1966, becoming the highest-ranking black elected official in the state. (Source)

KWANZAA DAY 3: UJIMA (Collective Work and Responsibility)


(3) UJIMA (Collective Work and Responsibility) which means working together on matters of common Interest. To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers' and sisters' problems our problems, and to solve them together.


Sidebar: This principle of unity and collective responsibility must be realized more than ever within the Black community. In the video below, Steve Harvey admits that the problems that we see among young people are the result of the older generation failing to teach the younger generation how to act appropriately. This generational neglect has resulted in the destruction of the Black family which is the nucleus of any nation.

The number of out of wedlock births within the Black community has risen to almost 70%. Men and women (boys and girls) have irresponsibly brought children into this world who they (the parents) were ill-prepared or too immature to raise in an environment consisting of two married parents (a mother and father) who are not at war with each other. Sidebar: Please note, that the main purpose of sex is procreation and not recreation. Recreational sex is destroying the Black family. Selah.

Until we, the Black community, must collectively make building and fortifying Black families through education, religious affiliation, politics, economic development and marital fidelity a priority there will be no advancement of Black folks as a community. The health of your marriage/families collectively determines the health of your nation. Selah.
Genesis 2: 18 - 25
18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Ephesians 5: 25 - 33
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife [see] that she reverence [her] husband.

Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Ephesians 6:4
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

KWANZAA DAY 2: KUJICHAGULIA (Self Determination)

(Click here for The Official Kwanzaa website)


KUJICHAGULIA (Self Determination) is the interest of developing and patterning our lives and images after ourselves instead of having it done for us. To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.


Sidebar: This year, while being challenged in every area of my life, I learned the importance of self determination - choosing your own destiny and destination. This year when faced with job discrimination, illness of self and loved ones, marital challenges and loss of friendships, I had to ask myself, Who am I and what do I want? (Click here for my testimony)

As I fought with major illness, I prayed two prayers that revolutionized my life. I asked Father Jehovah to teach me how to love myself and to give me my smile back. Thus, my journey to self determination began.

The first step on my journey was to start respecting myself and making others respect me. You don't have to love or like me, but you are going to respect me. Let's just say this did not go over well with my abusers. My company refused to stop their racist and disrespectful treatment of me. Family members wanted to have me committed. And I lost several "friends" (including blogger colleagues).

The second step on my journey to self determination was to get rid of the hair extensions and embrace my natural hair. Hair extensions should be an accessory, not a necessity. For me, it had become necessary to make me feel beautiful. This is definitely not the case right now.

Currently, I am on the third step of my continuous journey of self determination and that is focusing on my health issues - to be continued....

Romans 12:1,2
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

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 of God

KWANZAA DAY 1: UMOJA (Unity)

(Click here for The Official Kwanzaa website)

UMOJA (Unity) a commitment to the practice of togetherness both within the family and in our communities.

Sidebar: As we prepare to enter a new year, we (Americans of dark skin) must practice the principle of UMOJA to create a higher level of living for ourselves, our families and our community. Marriage between one man and one woman is the most sacred and powerful union on the face of this planet, which is why evil is seeking to redefine and destroy it. Husbands and wives must commit to unifying their families by being examples of peace instead of combat. Our homes must become places of refuge instead of war zones. We must learn to love according to 1 Corinthians 13 and not by the entertainment industry standards or our uncontrolled selfish sexual appetite.

1 Corinthians 13
1. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become [as] sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2. And though I have [the gift of] prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3. And though I bestow all my goods to feed [the poor], and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4. Charity suffereth long, [and] is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5. Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6. Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7. Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8. Charity never faileth: but whether [there be] prophecies, they shall fail; whether [there be] tongues, they shall cease; whether [there be] knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these [is] charity
.

SIDEBAR HUMOR: HOW IS NORMA?


A sweet grandmother telephones St. Joseph’s Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?"

The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear.
What's the name and room number of the patient?"

The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, 0K "Norma Findlay, Room 302."

The operator replied, "Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse's station for that room."

After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow."

The grandmother said, "Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried.
God bless you for the good news."

The operator replied, "You're more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?"

The grandmother said, "No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room 302. No one tells me shit."

MARY J BLIGE WHIPS HUBBY-KENDU'S AZZ



Contrary to claims that the hip-hop diva punched her husband, Kendu Isaacs, at a Chelsea club, Blige tells the Daily News she was simply trying to stop a brawl between Isaacs and her brother. It is noted that there was no blood involved, either. But most of all, nothing was ever said about Chris Brown, although, that’s a slammin’ kick phrase, now, thanks!

RIP ALAINA REED HALL (1946 - 2009)

Sidebar: I learned of the death of Alaina Reed Hall through Comedian Lil Duval on Twitter. I am shocked that CNN, BET or TMZ did not report her death, but you all know that Brittany Murphy 32 died yesterday. My favorite character that Ms. Reed played was Olivia on "Sesame Street".


**Photo from StraighFromTheA.com**


From Dimewars.com and Eurweb.com
Alaina Reed Hall, who played Rose from "227," has passed away, reportedly on Dec. 17th. Prior to her stint as Rose on 227, Alaina Reed Hall spent several years on the children's television show "Sesame Street" as Olivia who was Gordon's younger sister. Rose was reportedly battling a bout with breast cancer, when she unexpectedly passed away on the 17th.

Born in Springfield, Ohio, Hall began her career in Broadway and off-Broadway productions. She was among the original cast members in the 1974 off-Broadway production of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on the Road. Hall also appeared in productions of Hair, Chicago, and Eubie!

In addition to stage and television work, according to Wikipedia, Hall has also appeared in several films including "Death Becomes Her" (1992), opposite Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep, "Cruel Intentions" (1999), and the 2007 independent feature "I'm Through with White Girls" (The Inevitable Undoing of Jay Brooks).

Hall-Amini was married 3 times. Her first marriage, which produced two children, ended in divorce. In December 1988, she married actor Kevin Peter Hall after meeting him when he guest starred on "227."

She was widowed in 1991 after her husband died of pneumonia-related complications after contracting AIDS. At the time of her death, Hall was married to Tamim Amini.

Condolences/cards should be sent to her husband: Mr. Tamim Amini at 10044 Woodley Ave. North Hills, CA 91343.

Alaina Reed Hall-Amini also had a cooking show called "A Whole Lotta Soul" that looks like it was a whole lotta fun.

"How Deeply I Need You" - Shekinah Glory Ministry



ECONOMIC SLAVERY BY MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN

The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower [is] servant to the lender. Proverbs 22:7
Rob not the poor, because he [is] poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate: For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Proverbs 22: 22-23
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6

CHARLES BARKLEY AND SPIKE LEE ON TIGERGATE

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul [life and family]? -- Mark 8:36

Sidebar: It seems that Tiger Woods ain't talking to anyone including his boyz Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan. Charles Barkley is probably feeling guilty because he knows that he encouraged saber tooth to cheat on his wife.

Eldrick Tont Woods, please listen to Spike Lee and do the right thing. Your white handlers don't give one ratz azz about you - the person or your family. They only care about you-the brand or you-the athlete.

It is time for you to find Jesus because everything that glitters ain't God. Selah.

CHRIS HENRY: FROM REDEMPTION TO DEATH

"Anytime we attach moral strength to athletic achievement we are setting ourselves up disappointment." by Brandel Chamblee (Former Golfer)


The sports world has been rocked with major scandals and tragedies this year. First, Steve McNair was killed in an apparent murder-suicide with his jumpoff. Then there is the continuing saga of Tigergate. And now the death of Cincinnati Bengals Chris Henry who passed away as a result of fatal injuries sustained during a domestic dispute with his fiancee - the mother of his three children.

Yes, Tiger will eventually recover and continue playing golf, but McNasty and Henry are not as fortunate. Their children will never see them again on this side of life.

I had not heard of Chris Henry until two days ago when he was hospitalized after falling from the back of a pick-up truck driven by his fiancee. However, from various news reports , I gathered that this troubled young man was putting the pieces of his life back together. After three babies, he and his fiancee were scheduled to be married later next year. Instead of a wedding, his children will now have to attend a funeral and a possible trial because two adults decided to handle a relationship problem in a violent manner.

Character is defined as moral or ethical quality; or qualities of honesty, courage, or the like; integrity. Character is who you really are in the dark. Talent and athletic ability may help you achieve success but character will help you maintain it. Selah.

Keep all the children and families who have lost loved ones this year.

Right now, I am so devastated. I just learned that a close associate, Tish Murphy, who is married to Charlie Murphy, has passed away. Tish and I became friends while I was a law clerk for Passaic County Superior Court. She supported my law practice by being a paying client. She also attended my wedding reception.

She was extremely close to my cousin Pat. I know my cousin Pat is distraught. Please keep Charlie Murphy and their children in your prayers.

JERMAINE JACKSON, LET'S GET SERIOUS

The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty reality show debuted on A&E last night. It was refreshing to see the Jackson brothers interact with each other and their children. However, I wanted to whip Jermaine Jackson's azz. Last night's episode confirmed that Jermaine is a difficult and greedy individual.

Throughout the episode, Jermaine reiterated that "We are brothers;" yet, he acted like the evil step brother. He failed to show up for a photo shoot with his brothers to promote their reality show. His excuse was that he had had "pink red" eyes. Blank stare. He selfishly wanted to record all the backgrounds for the brothers' new track. Then he arranges a concert to pay tribute to Michael Jackson in another country and conveniently forgets to tell his brothers about it. Blank stare.

Visibly missing from the show was Randy Jackson. Of course, I took to twitter to find out the reason for Randy's absence. @Onlinefan was nice enough to send me an article detailing how Jermaine had married Randy's ex-wife and both man fathered children with this woman (I use the term "woman" very loosely). Blank stare. @Onlinefan also sent me the link for Randy Jackson's twitter page in which he posted the following statement to address his absence from the show:
2 things 2 make clear. I've never had a job in a garage changing tires. And yes, I chose not to be on the reality show.
4:41 PM Nov 9th from web (Source)

The highlight of the show for me was seeing Katherine Jackson. This woman looks great. I love her. This woman had to put up with both Joe Jackson and Jermaine Jackson. She had to watch how money and fame caused so much pain in her children's lives. She then had to do the most painful thing that any parent could experience and that is, bury a child.

I look forward to watching this series. I hope that Jermaine Jackson redeems himself because right now this show is nailing his career coffin as I type.

OAKLAND SALON BEATING UPDATE

From Abclocal.go.com (August 14, 2009)

OAKLAND, CA (KGO) -- A woman charged with beating an Oakland salon owner, while a friend videotaped the attack and put it on the Internet, appeared in Alameda County Superior Court on Friday.

Cavenia Bryant entered a not guilty plea to two misdemeanor charges of battery and false imprisonment for the 5-minute attack on Melissa Seals.

Police say Bryant and another woman, Jaymillya Edgerton, ganged up on her, punched her, kicked her, and prevented her from leaving.

A warrant is out for Edgerton, but she has not been arrested.

The salon owner says she is surprised Bryant pleaded not guilty since the entire attack was caught on video.

"You have a videotape. I don't have to get on the stand and testify, you know, against her," said Seals. "Her own friend taped it."

Bryant will be back in court next month for a pretrial hearing. (Source)


SIDEBAR: I have one question: Has Jaymillya Edgerton been arrested? It has been awhile and I have yet to see video of her either being arrested or arraigned. Blank stare.

DONNA JACKSON SHOOTS INTRUDER DURING 911 Call

From Cbsnews.com

Oklahoma resident Donna Jackson faced a life or death situation when an intruder tried to break into her rural-area home last Friday.

Home alone, but armed with a shotgun, 57-year-old Jackson called 911 and begged for help, but police couldnt get there before the man was able to break through a glass door with a chair and patio table.

Jackson, who stayed on the phone with the 911 dispatcher, can be heard in the call saying, "I don't want to have to kill this man, but I'll kill him graveyard dead, ma'am."

When the intruder broke through the door, Jackson dropped the phone. A minute later, Jackson was forced to shoot, and the suspect, Billy Riley, 53, was killed. According to the local district attorney's office, Jackson won't be charged with a crime. During the call, the 911 operator told Jackson it was legal for her to defend her home. (Source)

GATORADE DROPS TIGER WOODS' DRINK


From Radaronline:

Tigergate is about to get interesting. Radaronline is reporting that Gatorade is the first major endorsement loss for the famed golfer in the wake of his cheating scandal and beatdown by his Viking wife, Elin Nordegren.

Gatorade released a statement Tuesday saying the move to discontinue its "Tiger Focus" drink had nothing to do with the golfer's growing scandal and that the decision was made before Tiger's car crash and allegations of extra marital affairs. (Source)

Sidebar: I was waiting for the mainstream media to turn on Mr. Woods. I guess they will not allow this Asian Negro to womanize all those white women and get away with it after all.

SANDRA ROSE BANS ATTORNEYMOM

UPDATE: I can now post comments on Sandra Rose. I still think it was odd that I could not post comments on yesterday afternoon after I had posted comments earlier in the day. I guess she only gave me a one day suspension. I was about to go on a media-blog blitz because she banned me. LOL

**********************************************************************************

Yesterday, I went to one of my favorite blogs to post a comment and was unable to. Blank stare. I have been following her before she was a "blogger". So I can't believe Sandra Rose banned me without warning. The only reason I can see her banning me was because I said that Charles (who is also banned from commenting her sight) disappears whenever she takes her meds. It was a joke. If that wasn't the reason, then it was because I told R&B singer Monica that we want Monica-the superstar, not Monica-the hoodrat. Whatever the reason, she should have sent me an email letting me know. Where is the respect?

Sidebar: This is about the 5th blog that I have been banned from this year. No sweat off my back. I am batting a thousand. LOL

DAVE CHAPPELLE, TELL THE TRUTH AND SHAME THE DEVIL

Sidebar: Say what you want about Dave Chappelle, I think he is a brilliant and honest comedian. I too was troubled by the fact that approximately two to three years ago, the top-grossing movies with leading Black actors (Eddie Murphy, Tyler Perry and Martin Lawrence) required them to dress in drag. Blank stare.

Deuteronomy 22:5: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.



DEBRA WINNANS SPEAK ABOUT DIVORCE AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

From Youtube Blogger Lexitelevision

Lexi sits down with the ex-wife of Grammy Award winning gospel singer BeBe Winans. In this interview Debra Winans speaks candidly about the alleged abuse allegations, her marriage, life, love, family and her new book, "Life Altered: Not Over" in stores now.

Assault charges against BeBe Winans were dismissed by Minister Debra Winans on December 4, 2009. (Click here for case information from Davidson County Criminal Court, Nashville, TN). Based on the video, Min. Debra dropped her domestic violence case as a result of BeBe dropping his child custody case against Min. Debra.

Sidebar: The biggest mistake that MOST married couples make is that we stop dating. We don't continue to learn what pleases each other. Romance and courtship are vital to nurturing and maintaining the passion in a marriage. When we were fornicating, we made sure that we were affectionate and loving toward each other. Now married couples seem to find ways to destroy each other. Remember it takes two to make a marriage go right. Whatever it took to get that person, it is going to take that and then some to keep them. Selah.

ATTORNEYFAMILY MEETS KANDI AND TOYA

Kandi Koated Entertainment held it first Tweet and Greet at Dave & Buster's located in Lawrenceville, GA. My family and I attended. I must say that staff did an excellent job. They were both patient and professional.

Although I hate this picture because I look fat, I am posting it to prove that we were there. LOL. In the picture, are my family with Kandi Buruss (Grammy Award winning producer and cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta), Rasheeda, Diamond and Toya (BET's Tiny & Toya).


RECLAIMING THE FAMILY ACCORDING TO JESUS CHRIST

Youtube blogger Axis4peace has prepared a video series dealing with the HOMO-GENIZ-NATION of America. In Part 4 of the series, we learn about how the New Age Agenda as set forth by Madame Helena Blavatsky. The following are the 10 strategies for implementing the New World Order:


1. Push or remove God out of the schools. If people grow up without reference to God, then they will consider God irrelevant to day to day life. In the last 50 years this has happened. God is irrelevant to most people.

2 Timothy 3:1-7: This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, [w]ithout natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, [t]raitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; [h]aving a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, [e]ver learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.


2. Break the traditional Judaeo-Christian Family concept. Break communication between parents and children so that parents can’t pass on spiritual values to their children. Do this by pushing excessive child rights.

Exodus 20:12: 12Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.


3. Remove restrictions on sex. Sex is the biggest joy and Christianity robs people of this. People must be freed to enjoy it without restrictions. It’s not just for married, it’s for everybody.

Mark 10:7-9: For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; [a]nd they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. [w]hat therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.


4. Since sex is the greatest expression of man’s enjoyment of life, man must be free to express sex in all its forms. Homosexuality, orgies, even bestiality are desirable so long as no one is being abused or harmed.

Leviticus 20:13If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.


5. People must be free to abort unwanted children. If a man can have sex and then live without the consequences then the same should be true for a woman too. A woman must have the right to abort an unwanted child.

Exodus 20: 13: Thou shalt not kill.


6. Every person develops soul bonds, so when a soul bond wears out a person must be free to divorce. When one starts to grow, one must be free to get together with that person even if they are married.

Matthew 5: 31, 32: It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.


7. Defuse religious radicalism. Christianity says Jesus I the only way. Defuse this by: a. silencing Christianity and b. promoting other faiths through the creation of interfaith harmony.

John 14:6: 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


Revelation 3:15, 16: I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.

8. Use the media to influence mass opinion. Create mass opinion that is receptive to these values by using TV, Film, The Press etc. Note well what western believers call normal in the African church would be pornography.

Proverbs 4:23: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life.


Philippians 4:8-9: 8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.


9. Debase Art in all its forms. Corrupt music, painting, poetry and every expression of the heart and make it obscene, immoral and occultic. Debase the Arts in every way possible.

Jude 1: 3,4: Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.


10. Get the church to endorse every one of these nine strategies. Get the Church to accept these principles and to say they’re ok – then legal ground is given for these values to get a foothold.

1 Peter 2: 9: But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

WOULD-BE THIEF SENDS MERCIFUL NY STORE OWNER $50




From Abcnews.go.com

A Long Island convenience store owner who showed mercy to a would-be robber said he's received an apology note and $50 in the mail. The unsigned note said it was from the man who tried to rob Mohammad Sohail. It said the would-be robber has a new job, a new child, and is staying out of trouble. (Click here for video.)

Sohail is saving the $50 for charity.

The bat-wielding man tearfully told Sohail in May that he was trying to feed his family. The rifle-toting businessman gave him $40 and bread, and made him promise never to rob again.

The man disappeared when Sohail went to get milk for the family.

TIGER WOODS: STOP HANGING WITH MICHAEL JORDAN

Sidebar: Hearts and families are broken when a husband/father loves pleasure more than he loves God and his family.

2 Timothy 3:1 – 7:

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness [an appearance of perfection and integrity], but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

STEVE HARVEY, YOU BETTER PREACH!!!

"We are the only race of people - Black men. Black men, we are the only race of people that degrade their women in our music."

"Saggin ain't for women!!"


SIDEBAR: Let's begin by not playing "shit" music (i.e., music that destroys the Black family) on the airwaves and then stop buying and downloading it. I don't care if the artist is Sasha or JayZ, let's just clean up the entertainment industry. It is not God's responsibility. It is the consumer's responsibility. The entertainment industry does not tell us what we (the consumers) want. The consumers tell the entertainment industry what they want.Selah.

TIGER WOODS, YOU ARE BUSTED!!


**Photo taken from Usmagazine.com**

Tiger's traffic case may end with a fine of $164 and four points on his driving license, but his trial of public opinion has only begun.

It seems that jumpoff Jaimee Grubbs, a VH1 reality show star, told her Tool Academy costars that she was having an affair with azzhole Tiger Woods and she had the sexual text messages to prove it.

Whore/Jumpoff Grubbs tells her story in the new issue of Us Weekly.

From Usmagazine.com:

A Los Angeles cocktail waitress tells the new Us Weekly (on newsstands Wednesday) that she had a steamy 31-month fling with Tiger Woods and has a voicemail recording and text messages to prove it.

Jaimee Grubbs, now 24, tells Us Weekly she began having an affair with Woods, 33, in April 2007.

She tells Us Weekly they went on to have 20 sexual encounters.

Grubbs, who recently appeared on VH1's Tool Academy, also tells Us Weekly she has more than 300 racy texts from Woods, who wed model Elin Nordegren in 2004. (Source)


SIDEBAR: I guess Tiger Woods will be seeking asylum with the NAACP. You know how Blacks folks do when White folks turn on them. I have cousins (mixed Asians and Black) who don't seem to like their black genes too much. In fact, I had a Facebook Smackdown on with one of them.

Memo to Tiger and all the whore mongering spouses: Talent, effort and charisma will help you acquire success but CHARACTER will help you maintain it. You are only as great as your character (i.e., who you are in the dark outside the presence of cameras, publicists, spouses, family, fans, endorsers). Selah.

BREAKING NEWS: SUPECTED COP KILLER SHOT DEAD

From CNN.com

Seattle, Washington (CNN) -- The man wanted in the fatal shooting of four police officers was shot and killed Tuesday in south Seattle after he challenged police who approached him, authorities said.

The Seattle police department confirmed to the Pierce County sheriff's office that Maurice Clemmons was killed in the shooting, sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said.

The shooting took place about 2 a.m. It ended a two-day manhunt for Clemmons, 37, that began Sunday after an ambush-style killing of four police officers from Lakewood, about 40 miles south of Seattle.(Source)


SIDEBAR: I am starting to think that someone was messing with Mr. Clemons. He lived in an all white neighborhood in Tacoma, WA. He had numerous cameras surrounding his home. Perhaps he could have been pushed to the edge by the actions of his white neighbors and was resentful that the white cops did not do anything about it. This story is getting very interesting. Notwithstanding, he had no right to gun down those cops.
