I Love Oreos

Posted in Humor, Society on October 5th, 2015

I just love Oreos. I mean I truly and love them. Forget just snacking, I can and do have Oreos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner too. 😛

I Love Oreos

Oh! And for the record, the cookies are damn fine too. There’s a reason that over the 103 years that Oreos have existed over 450 billion of the cookies have been produced, sold, and happily devoured.

But what I’m talking about and what I love – at least as much as any other variety of woman but probably not much more – is Black babes who aren’t Black by cultural affinity. Yep! Black on the outside and White on the inside suits me to a tittle.

It’s October & That Means…

It’s October and in America that means it’s pumpkin spice everything. Also, since we dearly love to deep-fry just about anything, we now have Deep-Fried Pumpkin Spice Latte because….well, just because that’s how we roll in the US of A. 😉

Now the question is how do we incorporate bacon into this. Perhaps that will be answered soon.

Painted In Blood & Irony

Posted in Art, Society on October 3rd, 2015

During the morning of Tuesday, September 29, 2015 a street artist, identified by friends as Antonio Ramos, in Oakland, CA was gunned down and killed while working on a community art project, the Oakland Superheroes Mural Project which is a project sponsored by Oakland’s Attitudinal Healing Connection.

Yes, this is sad. Indeed, it approaches the level of tragedy. It should, however, have been an expected outcome. It’s not rational to believe that one can to empower individuals to be self-aware and inspired through arts, creativity and education, making positive choices to break the cycle of violence for themselves and their communities in the ghettos and barrios. Crime and depravity are too entrenched for such efforts to work at any meaningful level and too many of the population of those zones will actively work against such efforts.

At best, such civic minded entertainments should await comprehensive law enforcement purges of the ghettos and barrios before being attempted. Otherwise, the street art ends up, as in Mr. Ramos’ sad case, painted in blood and irony.
