I have been feeling like Crazy Sexy Cool lately. Is it spring or just the nostalgia of that era is haunting me right now?


So they have decided to STOP arresting people for being DRUNK IN BARS in TEXAS.
We never said that Texas WASN'T gully.
Now if the police ain't have nothing to do. Im sure Oakland would gladly put them to use.

So the sista who was allegedly raped is not a respectable victim. Well put. Peep Mark Anthony Neal do his grown man analysis on the Duke Lacross team rape case.

But such demonization takes on another dynamic within the world of “black respectability.” It was clear from the outset, that for some black communities in Durham, NC, the young women was not a “respectable” victim. The concept of “black respectability” can be traced back to the struggles of African-Americans in the early days following “emancipation”, where so many of the former enslaved sought to find common ground—a shared humanity—with the white citizenry. The strategy behind “black respectability”—exemplified in the late 19th and early 20th century by the Black Women’s Club Movement and the New Negro Movement and much later by the NAACP Image Awards—was to put the “best face” of the race forward. Accordingly, it also meant that less savory black bodies and antics had to be reduced to so-called “dirty laundry”—never to see the light of day. It was a logical strategy, given the pervasiveness of white supremacy in the century after emancipation and the desire of many black leaders to fight racism, disenfranchisement and racist violence on moral grounds.

Why not legally and financially re-segregate the schools. My main question is will there be equal financing now?!?!?!

Supporters include the legislature's only black senator. They say the plan will give minorities control over their own school board. And they say it'll make sure minority children aren't shortchanged in favor of white youngsters.

But state senator Pat Bourne of Omaha denounced the measure, saying, "We will go down in history as one of the first states in 20 years to set race relations back."

Dude. We need these in the hood.

Yall heard about that little kittie that was stuck inbetween TWO building for allmost two weeks. Well her name is Molly and she was rescued.
"In small-town America, people are used to animals living and dying," Mr. Moss said. "In a city of eight million, we're accustomed to the problems of people living and dying. When we hear about a lost animal or missing animal, it grabs people in a special way."

I think its better than flying all over the country not really "doing anything" I wish it didn't have to take this to sort of bring it the plight of single black females to light..but oh well..one step in the right direction, no?

btw..a 3rd lacrosse player was looked at as well..the developments just keep going..

Dude. Don't even get me started.

It is truly hard out here for a ____.

I got something cooking about the plight not being recognized.
