Questions?

1. Does Harold Ford's loss prove that light skinned brothas are not in style?
2. With Ed Bradley and Gerald Levert passing, can Black men get a break?
3. Without Affirmative Action will Black folks ever get a break?
4. Why do I feel like niggaspace is owned by Rupert Murdoch?
5. Why am I holding my car together with tape (literally)?
6. If I had all that was owed to me, would I work as hard as I do?
7. Why does everyone think they're the exception to the rule?
8. If people are so busy, why are they always on myspace, facebook, friendster, blogging, etc?
9. When was the last time you had a good cry?
10. Why doesn't Mr. T wear gold anymore and where did TV Land find him?
11. Why is Lil Wayne wearing all those diamonds when NOLA looks like it does?
12. I wonder if she's thinking the same thing?

Tape? Man - that sucks. I thought I had it BAD. I'm wondering why you have time to BLOG - busy man. I made it to the event - and I was too cute. I'll probably be tagged facebook style really soon. All the other questions - we've either already talked about - or will soon. :)

"When was the last time you had a good cry?"

Dumi, I'm on the verge of a huge bawling, sobbing, raging, yelling cathartic scream of a cry.

But, I'm stifling it into me.

I know I should let it out, but, the anger and rage has bottled it up inside me.

Maybe sometime soon, I will let it out.

But, until then, it will just have to build, and build, and build.

"3. Without Affirmative Action will Black folks ever get a break?"

NO.

We did not get practically anything that resembled a "break" before AA, and not for the past 400 years and we are still not getting any breaks anytime soon.

America does not allow breaks to black people.

Everyone else, and their uncle.

But, not black people.

No.

We aren't the "Model Minorities".
We aren't the "Honorary Whites".
We are not running this country.

We...will...never...EVER...get...a...break.

Dance, do we really talk that much???
Ann, take that cry sis, I can hear you over this blog!!! Yeah, we're short on breaks, but we're gonna make it... against all odds.

Mr. T stopped wearing his gold chains after Hurricane Katrina, saying that "as a spiritual man, I felt it would be a sin against my God for me to wear all that gold again because I spent a lot of time with the less fortunate."
