Eric Garner, Police Brutality, And We You Can Do About It.

I don't have anything to say about this Eric Garner story. I wish I did, but I just don't. So instead of sitting here and going on some long, emotional diatribe, I figured I'd just open the mic. Tell me how this story makes you feel....Show More Summary

NFL Camps Are Open For Business.

Any sports fan knows that the gap between the end of the NBA Finals and the start of the NFL season is the worst stretch of the team. You have to feign interest in baseball, sit through sloppy NBA summer league games, or God forbid, spend more time with your family. Show More Summary

Why Would Any Sane Person Buy A Car From GM?!?

My 2nd car was a Chevy Nova, like the one you see above.[1] It was labeled a Chevy, but it was technically a Toyota Corolla, if you can recall the 80s/90s when this sorta of domestic/foreign arrangement was the norm. And that car was a total piece of sht, that broke down as often as it cranked up. Show More Summary Open Mic Tuesday

Great Moments In Modern American Racism.

We all know that racism officially ended on January 22nd, 2009 with the election of the country's first black President. Apparently a lot of "Real Americans" didn't get that memo. These are there stories...I grew up in Klan Kountry. My rural suburb of Raleigh, NC was right on the cusp of one of the biggest clusters of KKK members in the state. Show More Summary

Lebron James Is Going Back To Cleveland. Why?

Earlier today, Lebron James shocked the world of sports by announcing that he'd buck conventional wisdom and return to the Cleveland Cavaliers after spending 4 years (and winning 2 rings) in Miami. While I was fairly certain James would...Show More Summary

No, this blog hasn't (totally) gone black. Folks, ya'll know the drill. I have a Day Job. I have a wife. I have #3Kidz. I don't have free time. Something has to give, and lately... okay, for the past year, this blog has been that something.I'm not closing shop. Show More Summary

Unemployment Nearing 5% Mark. Is It Time For Haters To Give The POTUS Some Credit?!?

Should The Washington Redskins Change Their Name?!?

I'm a "bandwagon Redskins fan", which is a nice way of saying "I only care if they're having a.500 or better season which won't ever happen again as long as Robert Griffin III only has one good knee". Seriously, football is just a break between the NBA offseason and an annual respite from baseball. Show More Summary

Spurs Win! Spurs Win! Spurs Win!

I'm not a San Antonio Spurs fan, but I'm definitely a "Miami Heat Fan" hater, so naturally I was happy to see Tim Duncan and Co. raise the trophy last night. In a 5 game series that wasn't even as close as the final tally indicated,Show More Summary

Halle Berry Owes $16K/Month In Child Support. Stevie J Is $1M In Arrears.

As a guy married for nearly 13 years, I can tell you marriage is work. Mix in kids, and it damn near becomes a 2nd day job, albeit one with great benefits. The adage goes "it's cheaper to keep her", which is a nice way of telling men they're better off staying married than getting divorced and being forced to live in a van down by the river.

Janelle Ambrosia And The Slut Shaming Of Internet Racists.

I prefer my racism blatant, not disguised or covert. I'm 40 years old now, so it's a lot easier to have someone make it quite clear where they stand as opposed to me having to guess. I'm just black lazy like that. Because blackness.With that said, there are varying degrees of racism. Show More Summary Monday Open Mic.
