Today was a sad day in Philly. So many people knew of this guy named Rob because of how he treated people and how much of a good person he was. The person who did it does not realize or probably does realize how much of an impact he made upon the city. I’m not writing this Post as news but I am making this Post to make a point. The point is hate is something you can’t get riding when people are miserable. Another thing is people hate to see you happy and would rather see you dead so they kill or keep the company they want in their misery. The messed up part about all of this is that, this guy Rob was doing his thing and it was the right thing. I did not know Rob personally, but what I do know, is that we all have the same 24 hours and we can be Rob. We can get money and be able to take care of our family and the community.
There is so many people up and down my timeline on Instagram taking about this guy but it breaks my heart even more to see the fact that he left his family behind. Just last week the community of the city gets together to free Meek now a fews day later someone else who is known in the city gets killed? Is it the city or is it the people that need something? The people need something that is going to make a better city. Nothing can’t be built on its own unless it’s on the backs of those who want to put in the work. We need more people who care, more people who want to see a change and more people that believe in the beauty of changing this city around. It’s not just about words at this point. We need that action!
Philly has always been like this. Because we are not children anymore and we have to realize that at this point, the block and the corners boys will always be there, the grimy dude will always be grimy and the crime will not stop. Crime is everywhere but Philly’s crime rate is almost at it with Chicago at this point. The people need something for the city to get what it needs. That’s all folks!
I don’t think any one knows how serious this movie was and how much it opened the eyes of both blacks and whites. On behalf of the black community, we were “shooketh”. To me, this is some what of a slap in the face to the director and creator (Jordan Peele). I don’t think his reach was to make this comedy. The interpretation I got from the movie is that a brother dating a white woman became woke at the right moment and got the hell out as soon as he could. ‘Get Out’ should not be labeled as a comedy because that was not the message it portrayed.
This movie protrayed racism and that is alive every day. We hear about it happening in public, the work place and educational instutions. Because of this, we got a clear representation of how racism presents itself and how it is between blacks and whites. The question is though, to what audience is this movie made a comedy? What exactly is funny? I’m sure other people could agree that this is not a laughing matter. This in itself is another way of saying the lives of blacks do not matter and as done to the black man was okay. Racism is not justified on both blacks and whites. Whites should not shun blacks for the color of their skin. In addition, blacks should not be racist towards whites if they want equality.
Because Jordan Peele is a comedian, and there were funny moments, doesn’t justify ‘Get Out’ is a comedy. This was more than a movie. This was a movie with a message. Thank you! That’s all folks!

Sammy Sosa is a baseball legend who started to bleach his skin back in 2009 and today he is a white man. Now I️ don’t know if he considers himself white but to me this is beyond wild. People who bleach their skin, have the right but I️ want to know where does the idea of bleaching come from? What drives a black man or woman want to become of a lighter tone, to the point they are white. I️ remember seeing an interview with Sammy Sosa about his skin tone and I was upset. Why? Because when he was of a darker skin tone to me, that’s him, he’s who he truly is being black man.
Recently, I️ saw this picture and reading about how he does not hate himself but I’m confused because why turn yourself white if you don’t hate yourself? Is it possible that a black man or woman can have privilege when they become “white”? I️ believe they would because that is what some whites want black people to be. Majority of whites want blacks to live by their standard way of living. On the other hand, a black man or woman should not feel as though they have be of another color to fit someone’s opinion.
He's really a white man y’all and I’m really shocked by I️t. This bleaching shit is not a game for real. Bleaching is not the way to go and to the black community, you are beautiful the way you are. You don’t have to be white to be right? HELLO! That’s all folks!
Meek Mill recently got handed a sentence of 2-4 years for violating his probation. Supposedly he got into an altercation at an airport and also was caught riding his dirt bike in NYC. Now, seeing that everyone is posting “Free Meek”, can we really see who’s at fault here? I’m not blaming anyone for anything. My whole thing is, we defend Meek for a lot of things just for the simple fact that he is from Philly. People can bash me for not being on his side but this isn’t about taking anyone’s side. Philly has this love/hate relationship with each other. The reason, I’m stating this because you’ll get a petition to get to het a black woman for doing her job but make another petition for a black man who violated his probation for something he knew he should not have done.
What the system does to our black men and women is wrong and there are cops who have committed crime against blacks but only get a slap on the wrist. Reading about other violations that have happened with Meek, enough is enough! If anything, if the system really wanted to discipline Meek they should have done it. In other recent news Meek was doing well with his album and again giving back to the community. Why take home down now? As stated before, there are no sides being taken but we have to put both sides in consideration. Meek Mill has taken a lot of wins but more losses. People don’t want to see you win but you also have to take responsible for your actions.
On the either hand, hopefully Meek can get out early and gets another chance. Meek does deserve better than this. Just as the system works with the other man they can work with the brother man. Meek has people out here he’s taking care of and most importantly he has a son that needs him the most. Do you think Meek deserves another chance? Question will also he posted on Instagram. That’s all folks!

In recent news, Tyrese is seen crying on social media about his daughter Shayla and people are actually laughing about that. He’s sending $13,000 in child support but can’t even seen his child. Also, prior to that, he sent a plane over his daughter’s school showing how much he loves her. There was a banner attached to the plane that said “Daddy loves you Shayla”. I believe all black men should have that participation in their daughter’s life. I’ve been very blessed to have my father in my life and here’s why this is such a big thing! When a father is in your life whether it is a son or daughter, he shows his son how to be a man. In addition, he shows his daughter how a woman should be treated. Next to having a mother, a father is also a gift.
The affect of growing up without a father can have a huge impact on the daughter. She wants to know how to be treated, she may struggle with love and she won’t understand how to exactly be treated if she doesn’t have that right male figure in her life. Part of this problem is the ex trying to keep the father away from the child. The more, you keep the man that the child needs away, they won’t have an equal balance. They will learn to think one way and not have the best of both worlds. Our parents will tell us that having kids (son and daughter) is fun but so are parents. One parent thinks one way while the other thinks another. So why not? Tyrese not seeing his child, is not a laughing matter. Black men who do right in life and are willing to be in their children’s life should have that right.
Every woman just as much as a man, needs and deserves to have that male figure in their life. This doesn’t have to do with the relationship of the parents, it’s about how the child will be affected. Think about what you could be doing by keeping that male figure away. Also, as the male figure think about what you could be leaving if you choose not to stay. That’s all folks! Thank you!
Apparantly the CEO of Papa John’s says that his sales are decreasing because of black atheletes fighting for their civil rights. Well, I don’t see how your pizza has to do wih those fighting for civil rights will affect his business. Also, he says that the situation with atheletes kneeling, should have nipped in the bud. He’s wrong. People have been buying his pizza for years. What is this really about? Also, people have the right to fight for something that’s right and something that could change the world. There will always be pizza around. We have Pizza Hut and Dominos. Maybe it’s not the atheletes? 👀
Honestly, It’s wild that when Trump became President people and their businesses, have shown their true colors showing their racism. Racism will always be alive and shown the longer Trump is in office, I feel like. I also feel as though these athletes don’t have anything to do with these Pizza sales, this is just anything to say just to stir the pot. It’s about time that more blacks stand up for what is right and started supporting each other. That’s the kind of energy we need. The people who choose to find a problem with black atheletes can have a problem. It is what it is. Just as people can be careless about racist and racism, there shouldn’t be a problem with standing for something right.
Positivity seems to be such a problem these days and people think that’s the right way to think. Things have changed so much through the years and 2017 has shown everyone that. People like the CEO and Trump just shows why we need to stick tougher. People are out here wanting the wrong things and now Pizza sales have been a problem? Really? This world and this government has go to do better. Papa John’s is cancelled! That’s all folks!
New Music from 21 Savage, Offset and Metro Booomin has just released! I happened to listen to it on my way to school this morning. I have to say, “Issa Bop! I’m definitely here for it and the collab itself is great! With all three of thee talents put together, I feel as though a strong vibe has been created and I can’t stop listening to the album. The beats knock, 21 Savage and Offset going in on the bars is crazy, mand everything about the album from the beats to the lyrics makes you want to dance. I wasn’t the biggest fan of 21 Savage but I think Amber Rose put her “Rose Water” on him because his flow on the beats were crazy and I’m like “Damn that’s Savage?”.
As far as Offset, I already knew he would deliver. When we talk about trap rappers he and just like the rest of Migos I do believe bring a different sound. We’ve never heard anyone else flow like them or rap fluently across a trap beat. That’s just my opinion. Overall the album is something that can be talked about and something to listen to, cover to cover! I’ve always been a fan of beats that give you a feel and can “dump”. With that being said, music was dope. Every beat had its own sound, you can bop your head to it, and gives you a certain type of energy through each beat. These days music isn’t what it used to be but it’s all about expressionism when it’s all said and done.
There’s making something, then there’s creating something. With this album there was a creation. I don’t see this as something that just happened overnight. For now, that’s all folks! To check out their new music you can find it on iTunes. Thank you!
I don’t know why but I knew that they would get engaged. When I think of Cardi B and Offset I think of a hood couple that fell in love. There’s something about them that just works and I feel like they’re part of every family that is a fan of them. Prior to this, I remember Cardi B and Offert breaking up because she thought he had stolen her purple blanket. I thought that was too funny lol and him popping up with a ring was so sudden. I am happy for them and I hope that these two can be together in the long run. When this all happened, I was thinking about her ex because as we know, he just got released from jail. Since we’re on the topic of exes and marriage, what if Offset l actually proposed to Cardi B because he knew about the ex? Also, do you think, that Offset and Cardi B moved too fast? How long do you think it should take to know if you have the one?
As I recall from watching Love and Hip Hop, the ex who was in jail called it quits! Cardi B of course was heartbroken by it, but she bounced back and here comes Offset to be the man she needs! Honestly, I think they’re cute together! They compliment each other beautifully! Here we are almost at the very end of 2017 and Offset and Cardi B are engaged. Did they move too fast? Honestly, to me love is love and a man knows when a woman is the one for him. If they’re happy and in love then they have every right to be. That goes for any couple. These days, people get caught up on celebrity goals and forget that everyone has a love for one another that is different. You can’t judge your love based off what you see from another union. God has His way of directing each of our paths differently. God willing, He will make the love last or teach a lesson.
How long should it take for you to know you have the one? Everyone is guarded when it comes to finding love. After all the relationships and knowing what you will accept and not accept, at this point finding the one should be a little more clearer. Some things you’ll know as far as if you’re ready and if the other person is ready for the same thing that you want. Love is a beautiful thing and a big chapter that many people take. Loving someone isn’t easy but it’s how you love and get through the rough patches that shows how much you love a person and how much you’re willing to accept. We all come with flaws and there’s someone out there that is there to accept them for what they are. That’s all folks!
