When You Get Sober!

princess

There’s a place that I don’t like to visit too often, and now I’m thinking about maybe packing a suitcase, because the few hours I have been spending there has now turned in to days.

Years of unsanitary things have dwelled in this place and so I know that I will have to pack cleaning supplies, extra wash clothes, and my Cocoa Butter Dove soap.

It’s awful dark there, and so I better bring as much light as I can; along with, a powerful energy source to use as backup in case the darkness tries to trap me inside.

There’s pain there…so much pain, and so I will need to pack extra bottles of Motrin and Goody’s powders to help me with the areas that will hurt. The Motrin will stop the pain that I will feel in my body, and the Goody’s powder will stop my head from pounding.

Something about that place makes me feel weak, and vulnerable, and finished, and so I must pack every vitamin in my possession so that I can have the energy to leave that place behind for good.

That place is the inner part of myself, and it is hard as hell going there SOBER….but at least I’m going.

Jesse Jackson, the Second Tom to eat Sam-bo Sandwiches at Paula Deen’s Restaurant

jesse

While doing some research prior to answering a comment on my post regarding how racist and narrow-minded I am, I came upon this information;

Deen conveyed that she sees herself as the victim in this controversy, describing herself as “heartbroken.”

“I’ve had to hold friends in my arms while they’ve sobbed because they know what’s being said about me is not true,” she cried. “And I’m having to comfort them and tell them it’s gonna be alright, if God got us to it, he’ll get us through it,” adding that she’s received “wonderful support from Reverend [Jesse] Jackson.”

I have attached the link for whomever to read the entire article.

It’s official, Jesse Jackson is now sitting in the “negro” section of Paula Deen’s restaurant with Al Sharpton. Al is welcoming Jesse with a Don Juan type conversation because he can’t help being an undercover pimp, and Jesse smiles at Don, I mean Al, and sits in the chair offered to him. He replies to Don, I mean Al, by rhyming phrases like Lil Wayne after he signed Paris Hilton because Paula has just signed his ass. They call the young Black man wearing the white suit with the black bow tie in unison, and they ask the “boy,” I mean waiter, to bring them the best sandwich in the restaurant; the Sam-bo sandwich.

Paula and Bubba watch them from afar smiling. Paula looks at her brothers and says, “See Bubba, there’s still some left!”

Ginger’s Thought’s – Well Jesse, we know your son used allocated funds to buy Ashley furniture and fur coats, so are you “selling out” to get white investigators off of your back? Is this action a display of “Keeping Hope Alive?” If it is….then my hope is DEAD!

Lauryn Hill Explains Her IRS Issues & Her Ideas Of Reverse Racism

Ms. Hill you are the truth! Just remember; in the dark is how we find the light. Jail created the Montgomery boycott. Jail created Malcolm X, and in your solitude, you will be re-created:)

HelloBeautiful

lauryn-hill

Just days before her three-month prison bid for tax evasion, Grammy-winning artist, Lauryn Hill decided to hop on her personal Tumblr page and release a manifesto detailing the flaws in reverse racism and how the system is set up for Black people to fail.

Lauryn has always been a mouthpiece for the people. Her socially conscious music transcended time and created a late for instant classics laced in some of the hottest Hip-Hop-inspired beats. And as a true artist, Lauryn’s intelligence is part passion, part experience.

Are You Dawn Richards?

dawn

So I just went on Mediatakeout.com’s website and I found this post unsettling. I copied the link for yall to check it out.

http://cdn.mediatakeout.com/63584/dawn-richards-from-dirty-money-got-a-full-on-face-lift-and-booty-implants-and-now-she-s-gorgeous.html

The title of the post is, Dawn Richards from Dirty Money Got A Full on Face Lift and Booty Implants and……..Now She Is Gorgeous!!

Well Dawn, I thought that you were gorgeous prior to Mrs. Potato Heading yourself. I saw the before and after pictures and I could not believe the transformation.

We all met Dawn Richards as a member of Puff Daddy, P.Diddy, Ciroc, whatever he’s calling himself now, group, Danity Kane. There were three other young ladies in this group. Well, just as the reality show was a joke, so was this group, and so they split and moved on to more whorish adventures. Dawn Richards was the only member who continued to conduct herself like a Lady and I personally think that it influenced Puffy to want to keep her under his wings, kinda like a Lil Wayne and Birdman saga; however, Dirty Money did not produce a “The Carter” type of success.

There is a lot about this young lady that many people may not know. First, she is from New Orleans (in my Jeezy voice…I put on for my city, I put on for my city, I put oooonnnnnnn). Secondly, her parents were both involved with music in some type of way, so (in my Lil Wayne’s voice, it’s in her blood, she feel it flowing in every vein). Thirdly, she was first discovered (in my Mystikal voice, Tipitina’s). Lastly, she was a cheerleader for the New Orleans Hornet while she attended the University of New Orleans.

That’s a resume of a strong, beautiful, intelligent, young, woman. Soooooo; I can’t help but wonder how she secretly felt about herself. As I look again at Dawn’s before and after pictures I wonder, “How did she feel when she looked in the mirror before her face made out with a knife?”

I don’t know…I think that if I had the money to change something about myself, I would ask a doctor to suck the fat out of my stomach, put some of it in my butt, throw the rest away, and then securely close me back up, but I would never change anything about my face!

I personally believe that our face is the one thing about us that makes us unique from the world. Even if identical twins are in a room together, their mother can look at the both of them and explain to others in that same room, the differences in her childrens’ similar faces.

Some white man has a quote, “The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword” and these are some real words. Authors who are blogging, or doing anything that requires likes, and fans, and followers, have a responsiblity to use their gift towards uplifting their audience! Yes, even us with the eight people currently showing us love.

This is our platform to reach, to teach, and to uplift people. Of course if you are exposed of doing wrong we are going to “type” whip your ass, but hey; you deserve it!

We all have things that we would like to change about ourselves, so what is the point of constantly hating on others. How they dress, the weight they’ve gain…It’s childish. Some people take our jokes too heart, and when they become addicted to the feel of the knife and start looking like Joan Rivers and begin to sleep with their eyes open….We talk about their asses some more, instead of just stopping! SMDH!

Ginger’s Thoughts – From one N.O. girl to another; I hope that you are happy now and I wish you much success.
