Silent Blogging Reflection *SMILE*


Sorry it's been so long since my last post. I've had to take a break from blogging, because of work related commitments and just my overall bleak outlook about the world in which we live. I honestly never imagined that the world could be so unfair, so illogical, so cruel, and so unforgiving until I started blogging.


No, I ain't polly-anna-ish, but at the same time I know when to stop harping on particular issues. This has been the case with my disenchantment with black institutions, black "leaders", and the bottom-feeding ghetto mentality that seems to have a stranglehold on the poor, working poor, and lower middle classes (I am aware that middle class and wealthy blacks are no exception to having the same mentality, but let's be real here... money can insulate you from a lot of stupid shit - sometimes). Don't get it twisted though; I will call bullshit exactly what it is... bullshit (Nikki Giovanni coined that witty idiom). This is not the time for being polite or "understanding" about black folks being slack in our responsibilities to our families, communities, and even our COUNTRY.


My voice will remain the same - unapologetic, critical, and common-sense solution-oriented. Sometimes I'll be downright scathing, but I'll phrase my opinions in such a way that my sarcasm and sense of humor are reflected.


So, today will be my time for reflection. No posts about trifling black parents and their (through no fault of their own) spawn - of - Satan offspring, no posting about cowardly police officers MURDERING unarmed black men, no posts about VILE child molesting pedophilic sociopaths, and no posts about moronic-New-African-Negroes who can't even point out Africa on a MAP, let alone tell you ANYTHING factual about Africa.


No, today I'll just sit back and watch.


Tommorow, I'll be back on my soapbox; you've been warned. *Maniacal Evil Chortle*

I'm glad your back blogging. We should do a podcast in the future. Maybe like 30 minutes or an hour. We could do something on political coverage, gay community within the black community, Obama and Wright, anything. This is Genifur2- I live in DC. I'm the one who told you about the permit to protest in this city.

BlkSeagoat-

you crack me up... i do it loudly. u remind me of a dear friend that moved to atl recently. especially when you talk about "getting people right together". that is priceless:-)

i met pjr. @ a protest back when imus was cutting a fool. she must've cracked me up in an alarming way. we left one another on good terms. i don't have to agree with everyone. so when i saw over at waod your response to your "meeting" i was rolling! i hate i missed it. i am sure i would have been cracking up in an alarmed way:-) u must concede, pjr is an original. i always look for the one thing we agree on and in this instance, i agree wholeheartedly that black women need love too.

thanks for making me laugh out loud.

i am looking forward to your next post.

blessings,

Precisely the reason that I felt the need to "unplug" for a couple of weeks (and seriously considering doing it on a regular basis). What, between work, reading blogs and cable news (which I've also sworn off), I was going nuts. I found myself internalizing all this negativity on some deeper level. It's too much and it can wear on the psyche after a while. No wonder mental illness costs so much!

It's good to do and read about the wonderful things that are going on in the world. I love pbs.org and have actually found some great blogs as a result of watching programming online and TV through PBS. The world actually is a more loving place than we think from what we write/read about on some blogs. It's important to have a balance.
