I sometimes feel like you guys are the only people who truly understand me
I remember in high school when he came to my area and shot the video to we thuggin with fat joe at my best friends girlfriends house and was told to never even think of coming back for any reason after he hit on a bunch of children. Also why doesn’t anyone ever mention Aaliyah? Dude wrote and produced age ain’t nuthin…
“As long as I got the ball, the world is on defense.”
You know in the planning stages they gave him a time estimate and he was like “Oh, no absolutely. Absolutely ...” while his people politely tried not to laugh.
If you are African American all your “Blackity-Black moments” are being performed in the heart of an
institution/structure which enforced white superiority,
imperialism and even gave its blessing to those who enslaved
Next time someone says “Your dad is a preacher, is he gonna say something at your wedding”, I’ma just show them this clip as Exhibit A as a reason why not. Because I love my Dad to death, but I ain’t about to have him get all long winded like he’s in the pulpit at his home church.
Yet the haters that have been up these threads pointing to that one article like “Markle’s not Black!” are going to stay mad and lips puckered. If you don’t have faith in Markle’s Blackness then you don’t have faith in Black mothers. I remain steadfast in my claims...Black culture is carried with Black women.
And like anyone who has been to a black church knows, you can’t give a black preacher a mic, and expect that he’ll only say a few words.
The quick answer is no. Very few children ever seem to be worth “rocking the boat” or confronting the fact that you have monsters in your family. Life is not SVU. That’s why the idea of the “creepy uncle” who gets invited places but they “try” not to let him alone with the girls is even a thing. It’s so fucking common…
It sure does, and it makes me want to cry.
This thread brings back memories of when my mom passed in 2010. She was admitted to the hospital with stage 4 breast cancer and we had just found out that she only had a matter of weeks left. He brother, my jailbird uncle, had just gotten out of jail and I came to visit her one day and saw him sitting next to her…
I was going to say that this report made me unreasonably angry and sad, but then I reflected and nope.
Omg, same thing with my family. It made me sick to see my aunts take advantage of my grandmother, even trying to get her declared mentally incompetent so they could get control of her and...the little bit of social security she got? She didn’t have anything, so I never understood what they were trying to do. I will…
When my grandmother died, my uncle and cousins went straight to her apartment and cleaned her out. There are things I gave her that I’d like to have for sentimental reasons, but I’m sure they have all of it. As my parents said, “Only good thing about her dying is that she didn’t have to live to see this shit.” And…
Nichelle Nichols Given Conservators Due to Dementia
You don’t even need wealth for this shit to happen. In the closing hours of my grandmother’s life one of her daughters ran up her Sears card and pilfered her meager apartment.
Thank goodness Nichols has her son there for her. I pray that he’s not going to run game on her, too.
White people always believe that you shouldn’t let “one or two bad apples spoil the bunch” when it applies to them. Even though it really be a buncha bad apples. But let that be us or some other minority group and the thoughts and actions of one reflect all.
