I Am Back Folks!

Hi Everyone,

I have been gone for a while focusing on work and life but I am back to discuss so many social issues that are happening within the United States and abroad. I will start posting my viewpoint the evening of Monday, February 7th , 2017 and I welcome everyone’s feedback even if I don’t agree with it! My first posting will be about our new President and his impact that is being felt around this world.

Chat with you soon!


Thank you “Shades of Afrika” Bookstore & “Top Ladies of Distinction-Los Angeles” chapter for supporting my book!

I just want to give a huge “shout out” to the Shades of Afrika bookstore in Long Beach, CA & Top Ladies of Distinction, Los Angeles chapter for supporting my book “Stand For Something or Stand For Nothing.” The book signings and discussions were great and it allowed me to meet wonderful people who really connected with my story!

Stand For Something or Stand For Nothing…I love what the UM students & football players did!


I am very proud of the football players at Missouri State University for standing up against injustice! I am tired of the “turn the other cheek” movement that keeps happening in this country especially when things happen to minorities in this country. As an African-American woman and parent of a college student, I would totally support my daughter to stand up against injustice of any kind. I am totally amazed at all the horrible racist comments that I am seeing on social media sites about the football players who demanded the resignation or removal of the University President Tim Wolfe due to his negligence of investigating all the racist events that have happen on UM campus.

So let me understand…as a student at UM University, if I report racial slurs made to me while walking around campus, insensitive comments made by University faculty, swastika painted in human feces in the resident hall bathroom, and harsh treatment received by non-black students…I am wrong for that! Wow, some folks in this country really need to take racism 101 class! The football players and students who went on a hunger strike made a huge statement by saying they weren’t going to be ignored anymore and had every right to demand UM President Tim Wolfe resignation or was removal from his position due to his negligence of ignoring all the racial incidents reported. The football players who are majority African-American made a smart and tactical decision by not playing which would hurt the school financially! Financial power is huge and this what you must do to make a statement these days!

I am so happy to see our young people make stands across this country because we can’t be equal if a group of people are still treated wrongfully! Racism and hate is still big in this country and always seem to be swept under the rug which must stop Now! This is 2015 and it’s time to stop pretending that we live in “Kumbaya” world when we don’t! We are all humans and need to be treated that way! The students of UM protested and took a stand for their rights which should be applauded, not “put down!”

I think we all should take a page from these football players and students at University of Missouri…stand up for what is right even if that means you have to give up what you love! They took a page from the civil rights movement of the 60’s and didn’t start riots or cause fights but instead spoke up and said “No More!”

Donald Trump & Dr. Ben Carson…battle for the lead spot within the Republican Party!


It appears that we have Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson battling for front-runner of the Republican party by any means necessary! Donald Trump who is the Republican front-runner has repeatedly attacked Dr. Ben Carson since  polls have shown that Dr. Carson is ahead in Iowa. In a CNN interview, Donald Trump said Dr. Ben Carson is “very, very weak on immigration and foreign affairs” and he feels very strong in both areas.

On Friday, Donald Trump took a jab at Dr. Carson’s faith while discussing the Iowa polls. Dr. Carson attends a Seventh-day Adventist church, which Donald Trump suggested was less mainstream than his own Presbyterian church. Dr. Carson has been in hot water for his comments in invoking Nazism on such issues as health care coverage, Dr. Carson claims that he has received positive feedback from some Jews for the comparisons, which others have called inflammatory.

Donald Trump is too extreme to me with his viewpoints in regards to immigration, foreign affairs, and on environment. Donald Trump believes that illegal immigrants are “destroying the fabric of the country” while the middle class is getting “decimated.” He opposes efforts to grant legal status to undocumented immigrants, calling that a “suicide mission” for Republicans because “every one of those 11 million people will be voting Democratic.” Donald Trump proposes instead to fortify the nation’s borders by building “a real wall” to keep immigrants out. Mr. Trump claimed last month that he had devised a “foolproof way” to defeat the Islamic State “very quickly.” But he refused to divulge it, saying he did not “want the enemy to know what I’m doing.” He calls President Obama “one of the worst things that’s ever happened to Israel,” and blames him for deteriorating U.S.-Israeli relations. He thinks global warming is a hoax and that the Democrats are just trying to raise taxes.

Dr. Ben Carson doesn’t believe that there are race issues and feel that the media is just trying to divide the races, he believes that homosexuality is a choice…”prison turns men gay!”, he is okay with spying on government workers to make them work harder, he believes that law-abiding citizens should carry guns without registration, he believes ObamaCare is the worst program since slavery, he believes in the guest worker program similar to the Canadian program, and he believes that President Obama should send troops to fight the Islamic states and should not fear prosecution for its actions…”By any means necessary” attitude to win.

To me, these two men have no experience to be President of the United States! They haven’t held any government positions in their career which is scary to me! They are just saying things everyday that are sometimes ridiculous and crazy! We can’t vote for people who are making things up as they go and apologizing for certain statements when they are busted. This country is already in trouble! Immigration, taxes, and foreign affairs are huge topics for me and I want to see a candidate that is willing to challenge these topics with real solutions that are doable within the first four years of their term. I am for free healthcare for all Americans and I agree that ObamaCare needs revisions in a Big way, Immigration is a mess and needs to be corrected really fast in this country! We are a country of immigrants but we have laws and rules about being here…you have to earn the right and I do agree that all employers should require “English Only” in the workplace and to truly understand English when trying to obtain a driver license and employment. I am tired of seeing Americans getting passed over for not being bilingual for a job in America! I do believe the tax system needs to be revised and more money needs to be in the American pockets versus 25%-30% of their paycheck in the government bank. Our current tax system is hurting American families because the cost of living is increasing daily while their paychecks stay the same which makes no sense!

I am a conservative Democrat and make no apologies for my viewpoints in this country. However, I do think we have huge issues with racial profiling, job discrimination, cost of education is too high and needs to be lower or free for college students, women and men are still treated differently in the workplace, and our country have gotten to relaxed on many issues that have caused our country to look weak in a lot of areas. In my party we have Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders running and I am a little disappointed that we don’t have more strong Democrat candidates besides these two. To me, Hilary is the old guard and Bernie is the better candidate who needs more endorsements and support from mainstream Democrat leaders. I hope Democrats and Independents come out in strives to vote because we don’t need a Trump or Carson in the white house! I have to say that America gives people an opportunity to do whatever they want, where else can you find two men who just woke up one day with no government experience and run for President of the United States and be taken seriously!

Raven-Symone, you are a huge Disappointment!


I am so tired of Ms. Raven-Symone now! She is showing so much self-hate for herself and her race…yes, she is Black whether she believes it or not! She has made so many disgusting comments on “The View” and it’s getting really ignorant! She got my attention when she told Oprah Winfrey in October 2014 that she isn’t African-American or Black…she is Human! She claims that she doesn’t believe in labels. But she claims that she is a Lesbian which is a label! To hear Raven dismiss her Blackness during a time when Black people are getting killed for the color of their skin, police brutality is high against people of color, and high employment rates are high within the African-American community is painful to see and hear especially as an African-American woman. Raven made her money playing Black characters on TV…The Cosby show, Cheetah Girls, and “That’s So Raven.” I was thinking that if you aren’t Black, please give back all the movie studios their money for playing Black face!

Months passed, here she go again in March 2015…Raven agreed with Univision host Rodner Figueroa who said First Lady Michelle Obama looks like an “Ape”  from the movie “Planet of the Apes” which is the most hateful comment to say about our First Lady! Raven said that she didn’t find the comment offensive because there are a lot of people who look like animals and she agreed that Mrs. Obama look a lot like an Ape. I couldn’t believe she said that BS on TV in front of millions of people about our First Lady who happens to be African-American. African-Americans have been called Apes for many years by non-Black people. How dare Raven put down our First Lady to get brownie points on TV! I was hoping that ABC would remove her butt off the show due to her comments about Mrs. Obama but I wasn’t surprised when they didn’t take her off the air! I have a feeling that if the First Lady would have been White that Raven would have been forced to write an apology letter and read it on TV the following day to keep her day job! A lot of people demanded that ABC remove Raven after making those remarks but nothing happen as usual!

Now Raven has finally done it with me and I needed to address her mess on my blog because I am ashamed of her and what young African-American girls see and hear in regards to her self-hating comments! Last week on “The View” Whoopi Goldberg discussed some research that was conducted on African-Americans and their low chances of getting a job with so-called ghetto names. Whoopi thinks the data is ‘racist’ and Raven jumps in and says “Can we take back ‘racist’ and say ‘discriminatory,’ because I think that’s a better word,” she said while laughing. “And I’m very discriminatory against the words like the ones they were saying in those names. I’m not going to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. That’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you.”

Raven actually thought her remarks were funny and valid. First of all, I have never met anyone name “Watermelondrea!” I agree there are some unique and different names within the African-American community but that is what makes us beautiful and some of these so-called ghetto names really do have beautiful meanings! Hell, it’s not just African-Americans with unique names, I have met a lot of White and Latino people with some very interesting names! Hearing a Black woman say that she won’t hire someone because of their name is just nasty and disturbing to me! African-Americans already get picked on for their culture, hair, and even names but to hear a Black woman on daytime TV agree with a ‘system’ that is racist is just showing your self-hate towards your race! First of all, let’s look at Raven…she spells her name incorrectly by so-called White American standards, she has a red color Mohawk hairstyle that is feathered…looks like a Rooster, she wears hair weaves in various colors, she is loud and annoying, she is  Lesbian, and she is over weight by White American standards…all of this would be viewed as so-called stereotypes. She built a career on being Black but how easily she forgets! Her character “Galleria” in the “Cheetah Girls” series had a so-called ghetto name that made her a lot of money! I am tired of Raven and her hateful comments towards people of color! We don’t need anymore “Uncle Toms” on TV in 2015! We need TV figures who will speak up and defend their race, culture, and stand up against racist comments. I would like to see someone who would not be afraid to lose their job over standing up for what’s right! “Sambo” and the minstrel show performances that Raven and so many other African-American public figures need to stop!

This is 2015 and I will not accept or support any African-American who feel the need to be “Sambo” to keep their job. We as African-Americans have to start demanding to be treated with high respect and dignity, period! We are not second class citizens and I won’t ever have anyone treat me that way because I have too much pride to ever be treated inferior! Raven needs to really do some soul-searching on her roots and herself! Due to her Blackness, she can’t get many movie or TV parts which she admitted a few years back but I guess she forgot those moments when she got on “The View!” Her name on any resume looks like a real stereotype so she needs to sit down and just stop talking! I have to say I clapped when Ann Coulter put Raven in her place on Friday, October 16, 2015. I am adding the link to the Raven and Ann conversation which was priceless! I am not a supporter of Ann Coulter by any means but yesterday I was a fan for five minutes! It’s funny that Raven would go head-to-head with Whoopi Goldberg all day but it took a non-Black woman to put Raven in her place which says a lot! I hope ABC removes Raven from the show because she brings nothing positive to the show at ALL!

Disappointed in the Black Media for not Covering the Million Man March!


The Million Man March 2015 was held yesterday, October 10th, 2015. I really enjoyed seeing thousands of African-Americans gather together along with Native Americans and Latinos in Washington, DC at the Capitol. It was the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March which was called “Justice Or Else!” rally convened by the Nation of Islam’s leader, Louis Farrakhan.

The March was different from 1995.  The 1995 March was more about Black men needing to take responsibility and accountability in their home. This year’s March was about a few things that are happening in the Black community; police brutality, calling for unity and institutional reform on social justice issues, Black on Black crime, homosexuality, and Black women should love themselves and always carry themselves with dignity and respect especially the young women. The March was beautiful to see on TV, people were waving flags, hugging each other, singing, and just happy to be at a peaceful gathering that felt like a family reunion.

Minister Farrakhan, 82, spoke to the crowd on the National Mall in Washington and reflected on the importance of passing the torch to the next generation. “We who are getting older… what good are we if we don’t prepare young people to carry that torch of liberation to the next step? What good are we if we think we can last forever and not prepare others to walk in our footsteps?” he said. Minister Farrakhan was also addressing men to respect and love the Black woman. He also addressed the social injustices that Latino and Native Americans are experiencing.

Minister Farrakhan discussed passing of the torch and gave thanks to the Black Lives Matter movement, the group that demanded justice for police involved deaths. He regarded the group as “future leadership.” Minister Farrakhan said that Ferguson ignited it all, “So to all the brothers and sisters from Ferguson who laid in the streets, all the brothers and sisters from Ferguson who challenged the tanks, we are honored that you have come to represent our struggle and our demands.” There were several celebrities that attended the March such as; P. Diddy, Russell Simmons, rapper J. Cole, Snoop Dog who was dressed up in a suit with a bow tie, comedian Dave Chappelle, and “Empire” star Bryshere Y. Gray.  Also in attendance was the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

This was a wonderful event that was only covered by C-SPAN news. I was very disappointed in the limited coverage that this positive gathering received. I wasn’t surprised that CNN and Fox news did not cover this event. I was surprised and very disappointed in the Black media like BET, TVOne, and even OWN for not covering such an important event. I saw Roland Martin apologize for not covering the event due to other priorities. Other priorities? Really Roland! The Black media is really looking like a true follower of mainstream media these days! I thought I could trust that the Black media outlets would cover this historical event but nothing happen! I think a lot African-Americans were surprised by no coverage from the Black outlets.

I am learning that we can’t depend on Black media anymore and they are mainly being controlled by the mainstream media. I think a lot of folks depended a lot on social media feeds and pictures from people who attended the event to get updates and information. Thank goodness for C-SPAN in covering the event or we all would have been lost in the dark about this event. Majority of people heard about the event through word of mouth versus media outlets. However, I am sure this event would have covered by all networks if there were protests in the streets, burning communities, or police brutality. I am noticing whenever African-Americans get together in a positive manner it’s not news worthy because it shows unity that mainstream media don’t want the world to see. The mainstream media only want to perceive the African-American community as people who can’t get anything together.

Well, we may not received the mainstream coverage but the world got a chance to see the event courtesy of the social media outlets and the many people who tweeted their pictures and videos. Thank you Minister Farrakhan for creating this event in a time racial injustice is happening around the world! I hope all the people who attended the event go back to their communities and volunteer, mentor the kids in their communities, create non-profit organizations, and just educate the community on loving themselves. This event showed me that the Black community wants change, new leadership, and direction in their communities. The Black media is a huge disappointment but it prove to me that they are no better than the mainstream media when covering stories in the Black community!
