@caligirl94117 I also benefited from social programs. I was on WIC and welfare for about a year while I finished my last year of college. Again, you'll get no argument from me that liberal-minded people are essential. But you know and I know that the far left is about as crazy as a horse with a poke up it's arse.

@caligirl94117 This in no way takes away the active social justice measures liberals have been at the forefront of--like I said....both the hard and the soft, the yin and the yang, conservative and liberal are essential. Honestly, I shudder to think of an America complete run by socialist liberals or fascist conservatives. Both extremes are horrible.

@chocolateadmiral While I understand your feelings, I'll have to tell you that I've always covered politics at one time or another, which is why it has it's own category. To me, soft-bigoted liberals and raging racist tea parties are opposite sides of the same coin, and I spoke on it here unapologetically.

@Fiji808 I disagree. Russell is one of those white people who think blacks should talk, act, and live the same. The must fit into the stereotype. Why else would he bring the other stuff up, like accusing him of laying down and not fighting for justice, or insinuating he doesn't live in "the hood?" Then he goes on to say that he's "racially" offended by Riley. WTF?! You only mention the speech issue. That alone is insulting enough, but it's pretty clear Russell has his "ideas" about what black people should be like. 


We should NOT give people like this passes because they "appear" to be on our side. They aren't. They contribute to the problem.

@Brenda55 @Divalicious @bellechose I'm perplexed by this. I mean, this in no way is a "bash-ca-black-man post" and yet there are people coming in to cape for them anyway! I tell you what--black men sure do have a dedicated group of cheerleaders. HERCULES! HERCULES!! lol


I mean, you can't say anything. ANYTHING without somebody implying we're out to lynch black dudes. I could say, most black men prefer showers over baths!! And someone would complain that I'm perpetuating stereotypes.

I just giggle sometimes at Maxi. She's so unaffected by most of the black guys at her high school who chase after her. Believe me--they do. She's gorgeous, she's a cheerleader, and she's a high achieving student. She's just not interested in them. Her first and only boyfriend was mixed--his mom is white, dad is black. Dude was CRAZY for her, but she felt like he was too clingy so she broke up with him. lol that lasted all of a week. Maxi does not tolerate B.S. she might think a guy is cute, but if he acts like an a-hole she's moving on. She's more into her friends and school activities than boys, and I think it's because she has a really good relationship with both her fathers. She really doesn't have that emotional void that I see a lot of girls have who don't have their dads in their lives. But I have to be honest...she told me her preference was white guys. She has a black guy who she's friends with--he comes over sometimes to play "Call of Duty" (lol my little girl has many funky interests, God bless her). He's also a basketball player so she probably met him through her cheerleading. He's NOT like a typical thug-identified black high school boy. He sings Disney show tunes to the baby and is super silly and playful. Also quite bright. You can tell he has a quality upbringing. They seem to have good chemistry and I told her so, because I could tell he liked her. She's all, "Meh. If we do that it'd be too weird when we play video games. Plus his teeth are crooked." 


Eh. I've never claimed my girl wasn't superficial. It's a process. lol

I should also add that I left my oldest daughter's father primarily because I DID NOT want my little girl growing up thinking that this is how she deserves to be treated. Mothers, you have to lead by example.

@ChocolateDiva I've heard similar things. I once had a neighbor at a condo me and hubby owned after we got married. She was around my age--28 at the time. She was raising a son and the father didn't want much to do with him. The mother was in college when she got pregnant, and guess how? He ADMITTED TO POKING HOLES IN THE CONDOM. Yes; he did that. People think this stuff is soooo far fetched; it's not. Many of these men have little value for life, and little understanding of fatherhood. These men are totally evil.

Okay can the lady in charge chime in? Alright, so I read through Mr. Tango's advice, and minus all the, uh...extra, his advice is pretty spot on. I research online dating and behaviors because it is essential to my work, so the basic "nuts and bolts" of this is basically gold. Okay; you might not like the "playa" vibe, but if you can sheer that bravado away and look at the essence of the message, you no doubt might get some value. I remember when I first came on the scene, and my style of writing--mostly irreverent with a dash of humor--really, REALLY put some "purists" off. They thought I was too cavalier, that I didn't give proper homage to the BWE goddesses on Mount Olympia. Whatever. People might not always like my delivery, but my core message is pretty solid. I say give Mr. Tango a chance, and if you REALLY hate it, click on one of my gardening posts. Greenery is often soothing to the, uh...savage soul. ;-)
