Eric Garner was a young black male, who was recently killed by a New York Police officer in images

broad day light. Eric Garner’s story is like so many African Americans who some how were killed or harassed by the NYPD or the LAPD. Eric seemed to be the victim of what we know to be racism, but the real question is could his life been spared if he used some common sense, and not fought back and resisted the police ?  Is it safe to stay that generation x has a lack of common sense ?  Our parents and grandparents seemed to survive lynchings, being burned, and pure death as a result of not resisting arrest some times, and using their common sense. Now, I am not saying that you should let someone beat your ass, but what I am saying is using common sense is even better.

I think the Hip Hop Generation didn’t learn from our parents when they told us ” common

sense is better than book smarts. ”  Eric Garner has been quietly swept under the rug, like so many other

black males, or African American’s who were killed due to racist behavior by other ethnic groups.  The real question is can one retaliate,  and stay alive with the white racist police looming every time you encounter the nations biggest gang called the police department ?

Do niccas really date for love, or are they dating for survival ? Now, this can’t be applied to blackdating

all black people, but my point here is this, that there is a generation of folks  between the ages 21 to 35 who may not really be about love. Many black men and women don’t seem to have the natural affection for one another to really understand what dating and love is all about. Many Niccas in the community seem to do more dating for survival and money than for love. I can point to many examples, of women who are dating to merely get a light bill paid, put food on the table, or get clothes for the kids. Has the economy pushed black dating into a recession regression state of being  where Niccas would rather just be with you for the money ?

Donald sterling is back fighting the NBA about his civil rights. Donald believe as a business owner, the NBA can’t just force you out of ownership of your team, without the proper steps to removing him as the owner of the team. Donald’s wife also plays a huge role in the selling of the team as well. The commissioner of the NBA said,”they made a deal with the wife to sale the team and indemnify the league from any wrong doings with removing him as the owner.” “Donald Sterling is only in a fight with himself,” according to the commissioner of the NBA. At this point, it looks like Donald is going to have to go to court to prove his case against the NBA.

Is Donald Sterling’s so called racist rant really about racism or is it about power ? Let me explain by what I mean when I say power, Donald is part of the Billionaire boys club, who all own NBA teams like himself. Has Donald done something to piss off the elite blood brothers that he politics with, because every has an always known that Donald is race. The question becomes what has Donald done to get exposed by his elite NBA Power brokers.

I am sure by now you have seen the sex tape by Mimi. Mimi like so many in reality tv  is trying to keep her fifteen minutes of fame.

 

When someone MimiFaustwho comes from an impoverish or lower middle class back ground gets an opportunity to gain fame they usually go to great lengths to keep it. Mimi is no exception, she pulled her rabbit out the hat with this celebrity sex tape to keep her name in the fame game. Many people who put their faith in corporate America seem to think that corporations have their best interest at heart when doing business. Mimi and Nikko didn’t know the fundamentals of doing business with the entity like Vivid Entertainment, who put out there sex tape. As a result, it has become disastrous for her in the sense, she is a mother with a child, and has no real support in the business or entertainment world.  She played her cards wrong trying to keep her fifteen minutes of fame.

Mimi placed her trust in her man Nikko and her reality tv family. Reality tv is a dirty game, because there is only a small few who have capitulated to the next level of entertainment and made a career out of it. Many have seen the Kim Kardashians  Ray J sex tape, and some how think they can pull off the same move.  Kim has been able to get movie deals, endorsement deals, and movie deals as a result of sexing on tape. In Mimi’s case, she doesn’t have a publicity, or a marketing team behind her making moves on her behalf. Love and Hip Hop will become a talked about event once the new season starts. I am sure Mimi will get a renewal in her contract if she desires to do so, along with a little more money.

Is there anything that people wont do get there fifteen minutes of fame ?

ArchBishop Wilton Gregory has been hammered by the catholic community for building a two million dollar home for himself.  Mr. Gregory said, “that the money was left by Joseph Mitchell, nephew of Margaret Mitchell, author Gone With Wine, a Civil War epic that made the family wealthy.

ArchBishop Gregory felt as if he did the right thing, because the money was divided amongst the church as instructed along with leaving money for the parish.

The Roman Catholic Church had to convene to decide after all the commotion as to what would be done with the home of Mr. Gregory. Mr. Gregory’ said “I should of known better than to take the money and build himself a home.

“I really question all these concerns with Mr. Gregory, because the church knew about the money.  It wasn’t until the catholic community started bitching about him building a home for himself that all hell broke loose. I truly believe that if the shoe was on the other foot, and he would have been a white male, the uproar would not have gotten national media attention. Is Mr. Wilton Gregory a devil or an Angel for building himself a house  ?
