Interesting?...Maya Angelou singing the praises of Hillary Clinton?... I wonder if Oprah knows about this?
There also a Quincy Jones Support video as well.

Rants: Atlah Preacher

I'll have to admit I'm mildly obsessed with this Harlem minister. I DO NOT agree with him in any way, but I'll be damned if he isn't the live action version of Uncle Ruckus. Pastor James Manning has been on a campaign against Obama because Black People have struggled too hard have a Black man as a leader. Yep, Pastor Manning said that and you can watch here CLICK. Actually if you have a moment take a glance at some of the Atlah World video collection. Pastor Manning repeated criticizes Obama for having a White Mama and suggest that Obama needs to go back to Africa. There is also quite a few Dis Video for other mainstream Preachers. The Creflo Dollar video is my favorite.

Vanilla Ice Cream

The Micheal Jackson Remix was priceless.... Allegedly!!

News: Man Fights off Attacks & Good Samaritan

A New York Transit worker walking home after a late shift, was mugged my 3 hoodlums. However, Maurice Parks fought back. He managed to stab one of the muggers with his own knife, and unfortunately Parks also stabbed a man who seemed to be a good Samaritan trying to help stop the robbery. Full Story
Ok....um... I know this guy!! Maurice Parks, I meet him last year on the train. I was rushing to catch the train, so I did what most people do when trying to catch train - I stuck my arm in the door. Maurice was the conductor that proceeded to close the train door on my arm. I gave him attitude, he opened the train doors and started flirting with me. Well anyway we chit chated after that, I did my usual find his flaws routine and decided to stop checking for him. Maurice is like a health and fitness fanatic - this would never work. I remember he gave me some speech about being physically clean and not eating meat. The whole time I'm thinking - BBQ ribs and Daiquiris would be "GREAT RIGHT NOW". So, turns out this guy is a third degree black belt, and gangsta as HELL. I heard on the news that back in the 90's Maurice was getting robbed at gunpoint, and TOOK the gun from that mugger and SHOT homeboy with his own gun. I'm kinda glad Maurice and myself did take it to that level. He would have had a bad dream and messed me up in the middle of the night.
But I must that it was tragic that the good guy trying to help lost his life. God Bless.

Music: Hope & Jazmine Sullivan

I might be late (or early) to some, but I'm sharing some new people that I am feeling. Put your candles and bubble bath listening ears on. These are both in the grown-n-sexy category.
<< Hope - I first heard one of her song on of all places Perez Hilton. (Imagine that!!) And I fell in Love!! Her song Who am I to say is so sweet and personal. Just a guitar and simple vocals always gets me. Apparently this song was on the soundtrack to "Why Did I Get Married?" *crickets*
Here are the Links: Who Am I to Say- Listen

>>Jazmine Sullivan is19 with a Grown voice and apparently been on the music scene for a while now. What I like about her most is that she isn't scared to sing. A lot of people do that talk singing (which annoys me) so that it will get those pop radio spin. But every once in a while we need to hear some of that old school R&B flavor. Jazmine's song that I'm feeling is In Love With Another Man. (I really want to leave this song on some one's voicemail but that would be childish). Again with the links:
In Love with Another Man - Listen & Jazmine's Myspace.

Happy New Year!!!

New Years is definitely one of my top 3 holiday. Its all about new beginnings and celebrating life. I did get shyt faced and lets just say I took a "nap". I got my first booty call for the year. It's ignorant, but it makes me feel special that I tops of someone list :o)
Oh and here's a thought: Slaves were granted their freedom by the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1st, 1863. That's means us darkies in American have been free for less than 150 years. Let that marinate.
