PLEASE do better....

1-Serena....Honey I know you were mad...Please remember you are at work...You work with white folks...please act accordingly.

Do I think she was out of line for cursing an official out?Yes,it sets a horrible example for young people of color.But I also don't think its her job to be a role model,she didn't sign up for that,she is a PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE and for that reason I don't think she should be fined.She has money,and that's what money is for,to pay tickets,fines,and bills.That isn't how you teach someone with money a lesson.



2-Kanye...Why did you pick on Taylor Swift?Because you know if you had of pulled that shit with Pink or GaGa they would have kicked your ass on national TV?

I really hope Kanye gets the help he needs,all jokes aside.He is a tortured soul.The industry can corrupt you,and with out 'the only girl who knows you best',its cold.We have seen what the industry can do to people(i.e. Michael).



3-Lil Mama,who the hell invited you to the VMAs?You still haven't redeemed yourself for the comment to Vogue Evolution...




And lastly on a more serious note.....

4-Caster Semenya....Baby girl,do what you do best,RUN!
Its a shame what the media has done to this young woman.What does her sex organs have to do with how fast she can run? For my readers who aren't familiar with this story,this young woman is a runner in S.Africa.She recently won a large meet,and of course the media(and their agenda to tear ANY and EVERYONE down)have causes speculation about her gender.Well she was unknowingly subjected to gender test,and they found a high amount of testorone,but still under the limit to qualify her as female.She was born without a womb,and would be considered a hermaphrodite,but legally is female,because that is what she was born as.
So your still wondering what the hell this all has to do with her running....
Umm NOTHING!
This young woman is now on suicide watch,because what they have done to her.The national suicide rate is 3per 100,000 people....31%of that group is someone with a gender 'issue'.

I hope she can overcome this and get back to do what she loves.

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,

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date. The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days.... Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree? So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education. via GIPHY I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit.......... I was scared. Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying. While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain... I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like

Chapter 5

So I go back to see the plastic surgeon days following the MRI.... She admits that the mass sitting there needed to be removed and it would be better in the long run for it to be gone for my desired results regarding her surgery. I asked her about doing the surgery with the other surgeon .... She starred at me And I starred at her... 'Well, we could do it, but just so you know this is going to hurt...like a lot and this makes the possibility for infection higher'  (Now seeing how I have a HUGE mass on my uterus the size of a child, I would imagine this would hurt) '......But there is no sense in cutting twice, if our schedules can permit this we will do it' I looked up at her and asked 'Well can you get a picture of the skin you are going to cut? I want to see it...' She laughed and agreed. Now this is literally the best news I had heard in weeks.... However  we had a few variables..... a-The plastic surgeon made it painfully clea
