Does the name Isaac Murphy mean anything to you? Odds are that you haven’t heard much about this forerunner of the popular Black professional athletes of today. According to Toni Morrison’s foreword in the incredible chronicler of Black History, The Black Book, “Isaac Murphy, a Black jockey, was the first to win three Derbys.” In fact, according to Morrison, “Fourteen of the first twenty-seven Kentucky Derby races were won by Black jockeys.” Read the rest of this entry »
Let me start out by saying I really feel some kind of way about this Kerry Rhodes situation. It is never cool to out someone as a means of vindication and personal gain. You can not force someone out of the closet. I purposely stayed away from talking about this because I did not want to further sensationalize this extreme act of betrayal. Who ever this little boy is, he is stupid, hateful, and quite honestly needs to be very careful. It’s unfortunate that we now live in a world were people are positively rewarded for exposing people. I know that may sound a tad bit hypocritical coming from someone who makes a living on based on disseminating gossip, but it is how I feel.
It’s no secret that we live in a very homophobic world. For those of you that have said “why doesn’t he just come out”, I’m here to let you know that it is not just that easy. We the world, our judgements, or double standards, our silly gender roles, and our ignorance cater to the down low brothers. Rather using this latest incident as a vessel to get in a few quick laughs, I opted to use it as a moment to educate. My favorite socially conscious blogger Anti Intellect lent me his talents and wrote a nice little piece that really sheds some light on this situation. Check it out. Read the rest of this entry »
Kim Zolzciak has been taken to task about being racist since The Real Housewives Of Atlanta started 5 years ago. Is she racist, or is she bi-product of 1 white woman being thrust amongst a cast of 5 other black women? Last night on pt.2 of the RHOA reunion, Nene Leakes opened up the color door again by semi accusing Kim of being racist. Nene later cleaned up her remarks by saying if kim was not racist that she was ignorant. Again feeling the pressure of being the minority, Kim replied by letting the world know she does not see color.
My favorite socially conscious blogger and friend of the site @Anti_Intellect of the Anti Intellect Blog says not seeing color is not the same as not being anti racist. Check out what all he had to say. Read the rest of this entry »
It is looking as if Miss EJ has become an overnight celebrity. What is baffling me, is dressed like this, how had this secret been kept for so long? Non the less, a little research on Miss EJ has produced a few photos of he and his boyfriend. It is safe to say that EJ loves this Snuffaluffagus non PETA friendly neck brace jacket thing. Looks like it my be mama’s security blanket. I can’t clown miss girl to bad. I have this one track jacket that is my security blanket and it is far from high fashion. Non the less, at 7 feet tall and 300 hundred pounds, are the fashions Miss EJ is serving high fashion or a Hot Mess? Take a look at the photo’s and you be the judge. Read the rest of this entry »
If y’all wonder how and why Kandi Burruss stays prayed up and sexed up, she it get it from her Momma. Yes GAWD! Go in Mamma Joyce and LET HAVE! Kandi recently appeared on an episode of The Doctors where they had Mama Joyce participate in the conversation via satellite. The question that mama Joyce asked shocked a few people but lead to some very healthy and informative discussion about sex beyond 50. Catch these T’s
So everyone was ranting and raving about Tamar Braxton’s style on her recent appearance on B.E.T.’s 106 & Park. But the real gag is, her style incorporated concealing the fact that Tamar Braxton is preggers and y’all completely did not catch those T’s. I suspected Tamar was pregnant when I had the honor of introducing her at a show here in Atlanta about a month or two ago. However, a source close to Tamar & Vince confirmed my suspicions. The source also says she is pretty up their in months. I keep saying “the source” because clearly this person wants their identity protected considering the couple have not officially announced their pregnancy.
I wonder how her pregnancy and the release of her upcoming album is going to play out. Seems like the wrong time to be pregnant. I guess it ain’t about our time but GAWDS time. Ain’t that what the church folks say? oh well, all in all, congrats are in order.
CONGRATS TAMAR & VINCE
Remember where you got the CONFIRMED tea from FIRST!
