Black Privilege? GTFOH. Seriously?

February 20, 2017

Sometimes, when I see inane shit on the news, or in my news feed on social media, I simply jot it down and promise myself a deeper dive later. Such was the case with this bullshit. Seriously, “black privilege” is a thing that actual grown folks who have, one would assume, at least SOME education, actually talk about…it’s NOT just a piece by Charlamagne Tha God. Now, unlike discussions of…


MItch Albom singlehandedly gave a class in privilege

September 16, 2016

I like Mitch Albom, I really do. I enjoy his writing, and I love to hear his commentary on ESPN when he is a guest. Granted, we may not always agree, but, in the end, I can at least see where he’s coming from…and also why he might feel his opinion is right. I have never listened to an opinion of his and thought he was dead wrong. And then…


WTF of The Week: Philly cop admires Nazi’s, so Philly FOP Prez admires him

September 2, 2016

The level that police will go to defend their own is astounding. Now..before you go calling me a “cop-hater”, lets get a few things straight. I admire and respect the police. My next door neighbor is a cop. Guy across the street? Cop. Guy four doors down? Cop. My friends and neighbors. And I respect them and the job they do, knowing full well I couldn’t do it. Not convinced?…

WTF of The Week: Parents charged with neglect

July 4, 2015

I started this blog, waaaay back in the day, because of bullshit like this. Back then, while hearing of a child who had been abused to death by her parents, what do I notice as the headline leading the news? Discussions about who was worse at parenting, Jon Gosselin or Richard Heene. So, while real children the world over and truly suffering, we focus our attention on a reality tv…
