There will always be people around us to uplift us as well as tear us down and it may come as a surprise to us. Family members that we assume will have our backs will become jealous, overly judgmental and extremely negative. The troll on your Facebook that you have as a political sparring partner may end up being your best ally when it comes to your goals and aspirations in life. Positive people are a breath of fresh air, and they show up in the strangest places. Negative people come in many forms and they strike when we least expect it. A lot of people who mean well will play devil’s advocate at times when we need their support and will kill our spirits with their opinion. Oft times this opinion comes from a place of fear because they would not be willing to the things that you… [Read more]

“Hot damn hoe, here we go again.” – MC Lyte When Jay-Z learned that Cristal Wine didn’t have black people in their best interests, he quickly dropped them and let it be known publically that he no longer supported them. Now that Barneys New York is under investigation, his silence suddenly makes him labeled as the biggest coon in the world to Black America.  Why do people think that because Jay-Z is black and ridiculously rich, that he will turn into Jesse Jackson overnight? Go ahead and mull that over while I sit here shaking my head. For years upon years Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter has given us the raw facts about who he is. We all know who Jay-Z is; he is a hustler, survivor, and one of the luckiest men on earth with a great portfolio, successful wife and a beautiful baby daughter. Jay-Z has never… [Read more]

Catcalling, or “hollering at females” is the new target of attack as the continued march against everything male picks up steam on the internet. While I have personally asked the catcallers in our fellowship to stop—since it’s more demeaning to them than helpful—it is still being touted as an “all male” problem, instead of a “certain type of guy” problem. What I’m seeing is that it’s demeaning, it makes women uncomfortable, and it’s annoying UNLESS that guy is someone appealing. Let a 6’5” Boris Kodjoe looking dude with a $1,000 suit on catcall a woman and I bet she wouldn’t be rushing off to complain about it on her blog. It’s like when a celebrity with a big penis gets put on blast for a sex tape or selfie sent to a mistress. You would think that his female fans would be disappointed at his… [Read more]

Everyone has an opinion about tattoos, from concerned parents, to people whose only experience with them is seeing Wiz Khalifa on a music video. We can all agree that tattoos have blown up into the mainstream at a rate that is faster than the speed of light and a culture once reserved for “true rebels” has become another fad like dreads, piercings, and bleaching one’s hair. But so what? Personally I admire tattoos, being an artist I cannot help but glare in amazement at a Yakuza-caliber sleeve on someone’s arm, or a well done likeness of someone’s parent, favorite celebrity, or cartoon character. When I see subpar work, or something I feel is just plain stupid (ice cream cone on the face), I keep it to myself and keep it moving. I wish everyone else would do the same (let people be) yet almost weekly… [Read more]

Today we are going to talk about the public’s reaction to religious dogma with athletes Lolo Jones and Tim Tebow as the main focus. Religion is a funny topic in today’s society as it seems to grow more and more unpopular as the years fly by. In the past when you had someone going on and on about their piety, it was praised (no pun intended) as a way that we should be living our lives. Now we have a stronger push against religious sects, often time revealing the dark, ugly side of them which is not limited to violent homophobia, intolerance, slavery, manipulation, and exploitation. Christians of today are much more quiet and reserved than the ones I had to tolerate growing up (bear with me). To speak your mind against certain things that they believed in or to argue logic against their faith… [Read more]

Keri Hilson has posed nude for Allure magazine and her haters are going crazy on the internet about it. As you can see the shoot was very airbrushed oops I mean tasteful so it’s not as if she opened the pearly gates™ for Playboy or worse. So why all the hate? Let’s break it down to it’s bare structure and you will see that Keri can piss gold to save the economy and people will still hate her. At the core of the hate, there is the stigma of the pretty girl, that I have explained several times over on this site. Keri Hilson isn’t built like the stereotypical black woman, her singing is not as strong as the best in her genre and her songs (at least the ones I hear) aren’t exactly classics. She rides the central wave of sex-appeal and radio music… [Read more]

Unapproachable is a different way of saying intimidating or scary. When someone seems perfect or devoid of flaws, it makes them seem unapproachable to others who may be interested. It is also the reason why you see dorks with some of the best looking chicks and guys that probably would make great couples with these women by them themselves feeling salty and being haters. It is if the best thing a hawte can do is smile like an idiot and make dumb remarks in order for a guy to feel comfortable just to step to her. A super cultured, well dressed, well mannered, well spoken and well adjusted chick will scare guys away left and right unless he has money, power, or something else that bolsters his confidence. Usually the guys that win women like this are the ones that can step pass the initial… [Read more]

Today the Hall puts up Angelina Jolie as one of our favorite celebrities. It is a long time coming and something that should have been done since that category’s inception. Doing this will no doubt bring out a lot of heat for us since the “Jolie hate” seems to get bigger and bigger each year that she works on projects, acts her ass off and stays (for the most part) out of the cross-hairs of paparazzi ex-cons looking to get a payday. Many celebrities are scorned, envied and attacked by Jane Average for more reasons than one, but Jolie’s seem to be a hate bred from her over exposed connection with Hall favorite Brad Pitt and her shocking and non-vanilla past. One of the dumbest things that people lament on Angelina Jolie is the media fueled charge that she “stole” Brad Pitt. Let’s define theft… [Read more]
