In loving memory of Michael Jackson....

Michael Joseph Jackson
August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009
After spending this past weekend in NYC,I remembered that the first time I went to NYC,Michael and Lisa Marie got married.When I was walking past the Trump towers(I believe) he was saying 'I do'......

I feel like part of my childhood is gone.

He was the man.Even the hardest of the thugs and criminals cant help but to want to moonwalk and grab their crotch when they hear the melody of a MJ tune......He was influental in the way we live our lives,dance,and music we listen to.He is a pop icon, and music royalty....no matter how damn weird he is.

Ill be the first to admit a grown man who lives with a chimp,and Emmanual Lewis,climbs trees and keeps girafs as pets is weird.....But the man scarficed his sanity,health,his and childrens lives to share his gift with the world.

I personally think he is better off gone.
Sound horrible?
Well think about it like this...
When a man is living on life support,and the family pulls the plug,because he lacked a qaulity of life,it is justified.

When Michael is walkin into courthouses (the days he could walk)in blazers and pj pants,can barely talk,sleeps all day,doesnt move from his house,sounds like he lacked a quality of life?

There comes a point when the fame,fortune,and fans become TOO MUCH.
Last thursday he reached that point.
The man risked his health at any every cost to give fans a show,getting burned doing commericals,practicing physical routines that no 50year old man has NO business doing...
He reached his point.
So the world thanks him by draging his name through any and everything?
How painful is it for his kids to read in the paper that they may not belong to their daddy?
Congrats to CNN/TMZ/STAR....you made a 8year old cry.

Its horrible that he is gone...
The world lost an entertainer...
A family lost a father,brother,son,uncle...
It horrible that a mother has lost her son,and a little sister has lost her big brother,trust me,I know first hand how bad that hurts......Its even worse that 3kids dont have a father(or a mother that isnt a money grubbing piece of PWT for that matter).


RestInPeace
To the man who inspired us to make a change,and look at the man in the mirror.

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

I kinda did a thing......Nothing major...

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
