Basically I just copied/pasted this to remember why I'm not into "black leaders."

1-Marcus Garvey talking "Up, You Mighty Race" Black talk, while choosing to marry a light, near-White looking woman.

2-Complaints from BW that W.E.B DuBois only used light-skinned women with naturally wavy hair as cover models for The Crisis Magazine.

3-Walter White of the NAACP dumping his Black wife of 20+ years for a White South African woman.

4-Dr. King cheating on Coretta with White women. All of which was audiotaped by Hoover's FBI, which tried to use these tapes to blackmail Dr. King into committing suicide.

5-Elijah Muhammad cheating on Sis. Clara Muhammad with dozens (if not hundreds) of mostly light-skinned women (and underage girls).

6-The Black Panthers' focus on having sex with non-Black women, as well as their extreme chauvinism.

7-Rev. "Baby Daddy" Jesse Jackson cheating on his wife. My mother kept an old magazine interview with Rev. Jackson from the early 1970s where he's quoted as saying "variety is the spice of life" when asked about his marriage.

8-Ben Chavis paying out NAACP money to settle a sexual harassment suit from a female employee.

9-Kweisi Mfume's scandal at the NAACP involving his womanizing. Also, didn't he have 5-6 sons out of wedlock (or something like that)?

Another WOW!

I am a firm believer in posting things that I love and feel could expand someone's mind out there. This following quote is part of a reply to a post from an excellent blog that has opened a lot of eyes. Let's face it, black women better start waking up and begin looking out for their best interests, particulary in self-esteem and expanding their dating/marriage options. The 'nothing but a brother' shit is not working out too good:

"Even among professional circles in the BC, I'm seeing so much disdain and ridicule of BW who are focused on marriage, as if they're desperate and needy and have been "co-opted" by the patriarchy... when they're actually the smart ones. But no, the BC has to be so "different" and affirm countercultural mores that DO NOT WORK and we can't see the folly of our ways."

There are some people who deserved to be called out. I know I have issues, but at least I'm not a Apple freak. I went trolling in defense of those who dare to point out the flaws of the newest iPhone POS and submitted the following, seeming killing the thread (as per usual) :

I love the “ipod sucks” articles just for the iLoon replies. I have no problem with agreeing to disagree but there’s a special kind of defensiveness that comes from the Apple nuts. Just enjoy being a lemming and stop jumping down the throats of people who who dare to demand a bit of quality.

Have you figured out why I don't allow comments yet?
