Wanna play a quick game of overrated / underrated?

Ok, what’s one popular thing or phenomenon that you think is overrated and what’s one that you think is underrated?
It can be past or present.

I’ll go first. Read More

I wore this dress to one of my birthday dinners and have been finding all sorts of ways to wear it ever since.
You can tell from the texture it’s really lightweight and being satin makes it even more airy, both exactly what I need in this stiff August heat. Read More

Every single one of these restaurants was stationed and serving up the best their restaurant had to offer and it was fucking nuts.

I’ve been driving around with a dent in my car.

Some asshole backed into me while my car was parked and left a dent that looked like Bigfoot pushed in my rear quadrant.

Happened about a month ago and I finally got the goddamn thing fixed.
That was on Monday. Read More

Smile!!

SMILE!!

The man who runs the cafeteria at my job, he’s been saying this to me off and on for the past 3, 4 months and he doesn’t know me from a hole in the wall.

First of all, any man with half a fucking brain knows not to tell a woman he doesn’t know to ‘smile!’

Finally today –

 

Me: You keep telling me to smile, is there a problem?

Him: *startled expression*

Me: I’m asking if my smile is your problem?

Him: Well…..it’s…it’s not…you just have a lovely smile…you should smile more….

Me: Oh yeah? You wanna know why I’m not smiling today?

Him: …ummm….well…should I even ask….I mean, from the look you’re giving me right now, I’m not sure I want to know.

Me: *speaks slowly* Because they’re still killing defenseless black men. Shooting them, over and over. MURDERING them. And. It’s. STILL. LEGAL.

 

Him: *jaw hangs*

Me: YOU go find something to smile about. Don’t comment on my smile ever again.

 

 

Yo I’m fucking angry!!!
Black America is ANGRY today and right now anyone can catch this heat.

Just cuz it’s not happening on your street doesn’t mean it’s not happening in these streets.

 

I’m talking about young black boys growing up without fathers…

Stop killing our fathers and brothers, sons and nephews.
STOP KILLING US.
