I was recently in Florida, where we laid to rest my amazing cousin. My cousin was not involved in any criminal activities. He was no dealer, he was no gangbanger. Not saying he was perfect, none of us are, he was simply human. He was an amazing son, brother, father, grandson, cousin, and husband, who was senselessly gunned down while sitting in his car. Kat was so much to so many people. Continue reading
I wanted to share a little story with all regarding my recent trip…
Straight to the point today!
Jamaica, what are you doing with the tourism dollars? Who’s benefitting from it, because it isn’t the people of Jamaica, not that ones who really need it! Continue reading
As always I’d like to start out by saying thank you to my contributor for dedicating time and energy to do this for me. I feel your pride in this one. I like your twist on the “assignment” and so I’m keeping it as is. Without further delay I invite you on my tour with Unknown Black Male (check him out, because he’s funny, witty, and I luv him!). You’ve sold me on this one and one day you’ll be referred to as Known Black Male! Enjoy everyone.
I have two favourite rooms in any house. The bathroom and the bedroom. These are the places I am allowed to be alone with my thoughts usually uninterrupted once the door is closed. Today my thoughts stirred and I was inspired to write as I laid on my bed staring up at a dream catcher I made with clients at my previous job. Continue reading
Cancer isn’t just a thing that happens to old folks anymore. Younger and younger men and women are affected by this disastrous disease. The sooner you’re aware that something is wrong, the better your chances for effective treatment. My Blackberry popped up with my reminder that it’s that time of year, pap smear time! I do one annually and so should you ladies!
Gentle dudes, I’m also reminding you that your spaldings deserve more than a checkout from your lady friend(s). Get your equipment looked at by a medical professional. And to both genders, while you’re at it run your STD checks at the same time. Two birds, one stone!
Take care of your health. You only have one body and if something goes wrong with one thing, it could spell disaster for everything else. Don’t delay, call your family doctor or head into a health centre near you. It doesn’t take long, it doesn’t hurt. You might feel a little violated, but that’s a small price to pay for life. Oh and please make sure you’re clean, I read a sign in my doc’s office once, apparently there are some folks who don’t know any better! Wash up and go get looked at y’all!

I will forever continue to pray for my Black brother and my Black brothas! I feel for you. I hurt for you. I’m scared for you! I will forever fight for, cry out for, and demand your civil and human rights! I will do whatever I can, whenever I can, from wherever I am. This I promise you.
I was having a conversation with someone and we got on the topic of pregnancy and options. We were discussing how back in Junior High School and High School, we had to have permission forms signed by our folks in order to partake in health class, especially when it pertained to sexual education.

Have you ever stopped to think about what your life could have been like? I’m not talking about the what if I’d have married this man/woman or taken the job in this city/state/province or country. So what are you talking about Nikks? Continue reading
So I’m sure by now you’ve heard of Baby Gloton. Baby Gloton is a doll that has been selling in Spain. The doll comes with a halter top/vest type contraption that your little girl will wear. There are two flowers that are located over the breast area of the top and she is supposed to breast feed Baby Gloton!
The idea behind the doll is that we are to encourage and educate girls in knowing that breastfeeding is the better choice instead of the bottle feeding. So mothers and future mothers, would you purchase this doll for your child? Why or why not? Fathers, feel free to share your thoughts also. Would you be comfortable watching your child play with this doll?
What do you think about girls being given dolls, dream houses, and easy bake ovens these days?
