ThrowBack of the Week

The year was 1990. The decade of slow jams started off with this classic. Songs like this should be in the Top 20 Duets. i think i will make my own Top Duets List. stay tuned for that.

L.A. Man ends lives of His 5 children, wife, and Self

i was going to check my email when this story popped up. As i started to read my heart just sank deeper into my chest. These parents were so deep in despair, so baffled by life's curveball that they resorted to violence not only upon the themselves but to the innocent children.

Now i don't know what kind of relationships they had within their community or within their extended family but murder and suicide is not the answer. 
Personally i believe God can get you through anything. My mother would say it's another sign that the Earth is getting closer and closer to the 2nd coming of Christ. Man is becoming more greedy, more devious, and more hopeless. 

Who knows who those children could have become? And the excuse they left for taking the children's lives was "Why leave our children in someone else's hands?"
Seriously? I think that if they had a strong faith-based background this tragedy might not have occured. Also i wonder did they have any friends who they could turn to? Family members? Former co-workers? Was death the only logical solution?

If there are relatives of that family grieving them then i offer my sincerest prayers.

ThrowBack of the Week

My favorite movie of the 90's was Cruel Intentions and it had THEE best soundtrack. I first fell in love with Reese Witherspoon during the watching of this movie and the musical sounds throughout just blew me away. This song live is awesome too.

ThrowBack of the Week

man i miss the 90's. a time when life was so simple, the worst problem i had was learning multiplication lol. Also 90's music was the crutch that held a lot of people together. It made you smile, made you laugh, made you cry, made you reminisce.

So i had to pull out this jam right here from 4 very-talented ladies who's songs i still love.

Blessed are the dead

"Blessed are the dead for they escape the evils of this world." -Drea MoS

i'm sure a lot of people have seen and heard about the un-provoked shooting of Oscar Grant on the Fruitvale Bart and also the calm protest that turned into a downtown riot.

It's getting really ridiculous these days. Clearly all police personnel need to have "Common Sense" training because it is clear from videos provided that this young man was not threatening or resisting the police. Firing a gun should be a last effort from police NOT the FIRST! Such actions were obviously not needed and i want to call into question why this man was sought out by the Bart police in the 1st place? i am very sad to hear of another Black man dying senselessly but i am further disappointed with our so-called "armed protection". Oh they're armed but WHO are they protecting? They shoot unarmed men but do nothing about drug dealers.

For more info go to:

And NOW i would like to speak on the peaceful March turned Buffoonery Riot. Now i read in the SF Chronicle thatEvan Shamar and other organizers just wanted to bring people together to express their pain and anger in a civilized way by speaking out, saying prayers and urging the police to quickly move into the investigation of the original shooting. However when the protestors moved downtown that's when the idiots took over and started doing foolish things that had NOTHING to do with the deceased. Shamar felt that his cause was used as a vehicle for fools to show their asses. He didn't say that but that's my words for it.

People started becoming stereotypical representations of African-Americand and of young people in general. And i wish i could ask a few of them what breaking the windows of a hair salon had to do with the protest? Because i would truly love to hear their reply.

I am ashamed as a young person, as an African-American, and as a native of Oakland for all this nonesense. it really makes no sense at all.

also i'm not aware if this is true or if many have seen this particular interview but my father told me a young lady (who looked fresh out of high school) proclaimed that she was tired of living in fear of the police, now the police should live in fear of (i presume) her and the other violent (fake) protestors (or what i like to call IDIOTS). ok 1st what does that have to do with the shooting of the young man? How does your turning over a cop car help defend this man's honor or bring justice to his family? And Secondly my dear the police are NOT i repeat ARE NOT afraid of some ignorant young people going wild in the streets. They are afraid of intelligent Black men and women who can navigate the court system and know how to file and present evidence of wrong doing. That's who they are afraid of.

ugh...ignorance gives me a rash and a headache.

It's a NEW day

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope this new year brings blessings unto you and your family.   I usually don't make resolutions but i plan on slowly but surely changing my dietary habits and also being more productive towards getting my degree.  Even if you feel like your life is good there is always something you can do to make it better. Maybe donating your time to a Senior's home or becoming a Big Brother/Sister. Or even if you wanna start small wihin yourself, you can change your hair color or wear something totally out of your usual comfort zone. Whatever it is, think of it as a new begining.

What's you resolution for this year?
