Name::Shawn From::Southfield, Michigan, United States
I'm a self-confessed internet junkie. This blog will be a little bit of everything. One day I'll be on politics, the next day celebrity gossip, the next day religion, the next day family, and so on and so on.
I don't proofread, too busy for that ish, so if I make a typo GET OVER IT!
I have a lot to say! View my complete profile
Why I have blogged in so long. I know that I think of things that I could blog about, but when I sit down to actually do it my mind goes blank, like now. So I'll just do some random stuff....
Flavor of Love 3 Why in the hell is those twins of the Flavor of Love 3 so damn UGLY. Missing teeth, skinny with crack bellies, and no command of the English language at all!
I'm pretty sure a couple of those woman are men, I would have to ultrasound them to make sure they got mommy parts on the inside.
Bitchassness How in the HELL do I sue P. Diddy over my damn phrase? I swear that was one of my original words. I, at the very least want a cut of the t-shirt sales.
Adult onset ADD I seriously think I have it. I can concentrate on one thing for more than five minutes without getting insanely bored. I think my job has done this to me since I'm normally juggling ten things at once. I've made it a point to start concentrating on one thing at a time. Hmmm, could my ADD be a reason I don't blog like I should?
State of the world Where in the hell is all the people that lost their homes? You can go to some really nice neighborhoods in the Detroit area and find half the houses empty. People say that are shacking with other people. I don't know of one case like that and I know a lot of people that will sleep on someone else's couch without a second thought.
My next car will be a moped. I can not keep affording to fill up my truck at $70 a pop. It's putting a serious dent in my "me fund".
I will be so glad when the presidential election is over, it's wearing me out. I had some commentary but I'm too wore out about it to write about it.
That's enough I know I need to update my links, my background, and all that good stuff. To be honest, I don't remember the passwords on none of my stuff. It took a lot to remember the one to blogger....LOL.
In a small highly segregated rural Louisiana town of Jena in September 2006, a black student asked permission from school administrators to sit under the shade of a tree commonly reserved for the enjoyment of white students. School officials advised the black students to sit wherever they wanted and they did. The next day, three nooses, in the school colors, were hanging from the same tree. The Jena high school principal found that three white students were responsible and recommended expulsion. The white superintendent of schools over-ruled the principal and gave the students a three day suspension, saying that the nooses were a youthful stunt. Black students decided to resist and organized a sit-in under the tree to protest the lenient treatment given to the noose-hanging white students.
Racial tensions remained elevated throughout the fall. On Monday, December 4 2006, a white student who allegedly had been racially taunting black students in support of the students who hung the nooses got into a fight with black students. Allegedly, the white student was taken to the hospital treated, released, reportedly attended a social function later that evening.
As a result of this incident, six black Jena students were arrested and charged with attempted second degree murder. All six were expelled from school. The six charged were: 17-year-old Robert Bailey Junior whose bail was set at $138,000; 17-year-old Theo Shaw - bail $130,000; 18-year-old Carwin Jones--bail $100,000; 17-year-old Bryant Purvis--bail $70,000; 16 year old Mychal Bell, a sophomore in high school who was charged as an adult and for whom bail was set at $90,000; and a still unidentified minor.
On the morning of the trial, the District Attorney reduced the charges from attempted second degree murder to second degree aggravated battery and conspiracy. Aggravated battery in Louisiana law demands the attack be with a dangerous weapon. The prosecutor was allowed to argue to the jury that the tennis shoes worn by Bell could be considered a dangerous weapon.
When the pool of potential jurors was summoned, fifty people appeared, all white. The jury deliberated for less than three hours and found Mychal Bell guilty on the maximum possible charges of aggravated second degree battery and conspiracy. He faces up to a maximum of 22 years in prison.
The rest of the Jena 6 await similar trials. Theodore Shaw is due to go on trial shortly. Mychal Bell is scheduled to be sentenced July 31. If he gets the maximum sentence he will not be out of prison until he is nearly 40.
· As Chairman Julian Bond stated, "This is an American outrage that demonstrates the continuing shame of racial division in our country. Join us in making it one of the last."
· In light of the circumstances surrounding Mychal Bell's case, we urge all concerned citizens to support the call for a new trial.
· It is unacceptable to selectively enforce the law based on race. Prosecutorial discretion should be used in a fair and equitable manner.
· The Jena Six should be tried by juries that reflect the racial and ethnic demographics of Jena, Louisiana.
· The hanging of nooses is not a "youthful stunt" or "prank." It is a hate crime. Such hate crimes should not be tolerated at any school. Jena High School must establish a curriculum which promotes cultural sensitivity and understanding.
· The NAACP calls on Louisiana Governor Kathleen B. Blanco and Louisiana Attorney General Charles C. Foti to thoroughly investigate and monitor the trials of Mychal Bell, Robert Bailey, Jr., Theo Shaw, Carwin Jones, Bryant Purvis and John Doe. The Governor and State Attorney General should do everything in their power to ensure that these young men's constitutional rights are protected.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION TO THIS IMPORTANT MATTER!!! If you have any questions, call Angela Ciccolo at the National Headquarters at (410) 580-5777
I’m a happy go lucky life of the party most of the time, but I irritate easily.Here’s some things that make me want to snatch someone by the throat and squeeze every last drop of life giving oxygen out of them.
TARDINESS!I know that I’m not the picture of punctuality, but damn can you make it to an event within two hours of it starting?We had a baby shower for my niece on Saturday, it started at 4:00pm.Why was there still people coming at 7:30?My family is actually on punishment from having events at my house because of their extreme tardiness, but I love my niece and I did it for her.
LIARS!I have the gift to know when someone is lying to me.I get tired of calling people out on their lies because it just spawns more lies.Some people lie to kick it, if we’re cool, you don’t have to lie to me.I know it’s impossible to tell the truth 100% of the time for various reasons, but damn……
CHEAP PEOPLE!Don’t bring your cheap ass to an event where a gift is expected talking about “I left the card at home” “I didn’t know what they wanted” blah blah blah. Stay your cheap azz at home if you can’t bring a gift.No one really want to see you without one……just being real.Another thing about cheap people that irritates me, why won’t they buy their own damn food!They’ll claim they’re not hungry, but eat all your shyt.This brings me to…..
MAKING A PLATE TO TAKE HOME!!!!!!STOP IT PEOPLE!It’s not cool at all.If the event that you’re attending is not over and the host has not told you to it is ok to take a plate home, but down the damn foil and paper plates.You don’t know what plans people have for their leftovers.I’ve seen people daisy chain food out the door of an event.It is not that serious folks.
WHINERS!So what this post is whiny, but damn I hate whiners.My whine tolerance has been very low lately.Just shut the fawk up and fix the problem (whatever it is) already.
BEGGARS!My son is the biggest offender right now.Damn, leave me and my money alone!
OLD JEWISH LADIES!I was at a deli counter today and it was some in back in my.OMG!How fawking annoying! I really hated those ladies.They were pushing, shoving, talking, trying to take cuts, etc.I had to swell up on them.I will slap an old lady…..LOL.J/K.Ok, I’m going to bed now…..LOL.
I can't believe I haven't made a post since March! My how time flies. I guess I'll have more time on my hands now since I have an empty nest. I'm not going to get into all that now. Let's just laugh ad have some fun....LOL!
Make Room For the Big GIRLLLSSSSS
I got much love for the big girls, being that I'm one myself. With that being said, we know that big girls are NOTORIOUS for being a straight hot shitty MESS! So let's roll this post.
This is my girl big bubbles, BB for short. She left me speechless!
Why, why, why!!!! Homegirl took the shake and go straight out of the bag and slid it on her head. Notice the massive pile of weave in the background. I will giver her credit for not being naked.
This one here is a Chubby Chaser dream. All she need is a can of peaches to go with that cottage cheese.
Who told Auntie Edna to be putting her picture on Myspace? She got her latchhook weave. platforms, and get down brown lipstick on. Somebody should have told her that those hands can't cover that dunlap.
I know their big ass don't want us to believe that their were getting down in that twin bed. They look like two Sumo wrestlers. Look at them touching at the belly. Nasty asses!
She looks like a whale caught in a net. At least she took the time to coordinate....LOL.
I'm sure hoping this was photoshopped. Moving on......
This shyt aint even funny. It made me regurgitate my dinner. Those are quite possibly the nastiest looking legs I've eve seen in my life. I guess we should just give thanks that she decided not to show her ass.
Let's move on!!!
Do you like male strippers? Well you might not anymore!
I would be pissed if I paid $5 to see his ass or her showed up at my shower dressed in half of a RV curtain.
Look at the women in the back. They are bored as hell. He needs to use that chain to hang himself!
I'm disturbed by the fact that he has no testicles.
He looks like Zorro dressed as a bridesmaid.
Enough of this fool! Let's move on to the CHILDREN!
I love the children, I really do, but like big girls, they know how to bring the Tom Foolery!
Is there a school where the children go where they learn to make the gay face. I'm not even going to discuss the purple tracks. I'm just mad that his damn lips are ashy! How unfagalicious of him!
I would have thought this was a hoax picture if it was not for the arch eyebrows!Let's count the offenses. 1. finger waves and pin curls. 2. polka dot waves. 3. Paper thin mustache. 4Long sleeve shirt under jersey. Ok, I'm tired of looking at him.
This is all kinds of wrong. Lion cloth, bangles, and Chanel bag *sigh*.
He's actually not a bad looking guy. I had more pics, but I thought this was enough.
He gives me a headache. No self respecting queen would be caught dead in the scenario. No comment on those leopard panties.
Time to put the children to BED!
On to the the straight SKANKS!
I think I need some Valtrex just by looking at their nasty Wesson oil coated asses.
Give him his pants back.
Anyone got some penicillin? You know it's some live and active cultures growing there.
This boys and girls is what you call an old ho! Po thang, still sporting a coochie fro.
Old ho's just won't give it up. Somebody slap some Crisco on Autie ashy ass pronto!
I'm starting to wonder if Autie is an Uncle........
Still not itching? This one comes with BO, do a scratch and sniff if you don't believe me.
Ok, boys and girls, I need a drink. I can't stop scratching.
I keep asking myself that question over and over because people won't let me forget how old I am.
I've never considered myself to have a problem with my age. I've alway felt proud and blessed. I can't believe that I'm closer to 40 than 30. I feel like I'm at a crossroads where I need to make some serious decisions about the next phase of my life.
I'm also suffering from "pre empty nest" syndrome. My boy has signed his NLI and will be leaving for school in June. I'm extremely happy that he's leaving for school and I know he'll be ok, but I'm going to miss him. He'll only be four hours away, but I won't get to see him like I see my daughter who is 45 minutes away. She's not coming home this summer either, she's getting an apartment near school.
All my adult life (and even before then) I've been someone's mother and wife. The thought of living my life the way I want to and doing what I want is something that I have never given much thought until now. I knew this day would come and I knew I would be young when it happened, but it came much faster than I thought.....LOL.
My daughter has pretty much moved on with her life and is doing what she wants to do. She doesn't really need me and that's cool. I know my son will need me for a year or two, but then again maybe not. I hear the south calling me. I'm considering moving across the Mason Dixon line. I'm tired of being cold and I just want a change of scenery. I think I'm going to use the next couple of years to tie up some loose ends and then I'll concentrate on moving on.
In other age related news....
I know I'm not too close to "the change" yet, but I can feel my body changing. I get warm much faster than I used to. I wore a turtle neck sweater today and I almost went into spontanious combustion.....LOL. My skin is also getting dryer. If I sit in one position too long, I get stiff.....sheesh. I'm still waiting on this 30-something sex surge to kick in. The thought of having an insatiable sexual appetite is hilarious to me. I mean I'm no prude and I do alright, but I can definitely control myself.
Oh my, this will make two post in one month! I guess I'm getting back in the grove.
Since it's so long in between my post, I can't focus on one topic. So I'll just catch y'all up and talk about what's going on in my life, head, etc.....
I just came home from a whirlwind college tour with my son. This whole football recruiting thing is wearing me out! I shouldn't complain though, because I feel blessed that his talents, grades, and personality has schools interested in him. There are so many people that would like to be in his shoes right now, I just hope we make the best decision for him.
While on my tour I finally met my friend, Renay! We've been part of a group that has talked online going on almost three years. We talk about family, friends, life, entertainment, etc. We've watched people in our group get married, divorced, have babies, lose babies, bury loved ones, recover from serious illnesses, and just grow up. Renay and I hit it off from the beginning, we are definitely sisters from another mothers. I absolutely had a blast with her, she is so darn cool! We were just like two old friends hanging out. I have met a friend for life!
I'm hungry. I want a friend salami sandwich(my cravings have been so weird lately), but I don't have Miracle Whip. We have a ton of mayo, but no Miracle Whip!
What is everyone doing for Super Bowl. I want to go to a sports bar or something. I have a feeling I'll be watching it at home again. I'm cool with that.
When are the killings going to stop in Detroit? Now they've killed David Ruffin's granddaughter. They need to send the national guard in there pronto! It's a scary situation.
Why do fools continue to drive 80 mph even when they see other cars belly up in ditches? SUV owners are the biggest offenders.
Ok, I've run out of jibber jabber. I'm hungry and can't concentrate any longer.....
