18 million unregistered African American voters

Folks we have to get it together.  Our vote does count.  It may not seem like it sometimes but 18 million black folk who are not registered is a crying shame.  I don’t know what it is going to take for our people to get the point.  I pulled this audio clip of R&B singer Jo.  Jo was not registered to vote.  Even though he is an Obama supporter he thought that since Obama was getting so much attention that ‘everyone’ else would push Obama over the top.  

It took everything in my soul not to scream at the top of my lungs.  I love this brotha’s music but he is very ignorant.  I am glad that Tom Joyner got him to register and vote.  This brotha didn’t even know when election day was.  Folks we have to do better!!!!  We have to remember that our ancestors fought and died for us to have the right to vote!!!!

Listen to Jo on the Tom Joyner Morning show 

Flava Flav: Modern day Stepin Fetchit

After great ratings on VH-1’s “Flava of Love” networks have given him a show called Under One Roof.  Flava Flav plays an ex-con who goes to live with his rich brother; sounds familiar?  It may from the surface, but Fresh Prince of Bel Air had a great story line and was balanced. 

I will go out on a limb and say that this show will be nothing short of coon-tastic entertainment.  I am using Flava of Love as my premise for making these statements.  As a matter of fact, the LA Times says that the show makes other ethnicities look stupid as well; still doesn’t make it right. 

Prosecutors in R. Kelly Case have new evidence of other crimes

Please throw this fool in jail.  This has gone on too long and I am tired of people supporting this man and making music with him as if they don’t know he has a problem with under-aged girls.

Kanye West….

Just when you start to have an ounce of compassion for Kanye because of the death of his mother, he opens his big mouth.  Did anyone hear his speech tonight?  He has to be one of the most immature self-centered ignorant artists out there.  And what was he trying to say about Common?  That maybe Common would have won the grammy if his CD did not drop in the same year as his?  It is obvious that he got his arrogance from his parental units (rest in peace to his mother)  but I read some things she said about him a couple of years ago and it was obvious where he got it from…..

I am so glad that Herbie Hancock won Best Album tonight.  Herbie has been around for a long time and is an awesome musician.  I am sure Kanye is pissed right about now….lol

A deeper look into Bob Johnson’s Hypocrisy

This article is on point.  Davey D put it out there on Bob Johnson’s recent comments he made about Obama at church function in support of Clinton.  We all know that Bob Johnson made a fortune off of exploiting people of color.  The sad part about it is he thinks we don’t know….

Maryland Pastor Protests BET Honors

Pastor Coatestakes it to the streets on BET.  I am not mad at him at all.  Those who read my blog knows how I feel about BET.  I have heard many arguments defending BET. Some people say that founder Bob Johnson is a business man not a community leader.  Some people say that if Bob Johnson hadn’t done it, then someone else would.  The excuses go on and on. 

The point is Bob Johnson started with a great concept and idea back in the 80s and at the end, he choose to make money as a business man at the expense of marginalizing his own people.  Then he sold the company and became a billionaire!  Way to go Bob!
