Mel Gibson.....

I found this video on my friend, Shannon's, blog today. I guess I'm a little behind the times in knowing that Mel Gibson is a drunken racist/woman-hater....

Last I heard, he was an anti-Semite (a specific kind of racist) and a radical "Passion of the Christ" visionary.

How the hell
does one go from spreading a message of peace and forgiveness to telling the mother of his children that she basically deserves her own rape??? And by a "pack" of N-words at that?? Why the animal references??

I don't even know what more to say about this other than, the man's career needs to end. Now.

This is madness.

Sex, Religion, and Kids....

Christianity is harmful to children.......I'm convinced!

And not for the obvious reasons, because there are so many lol. Let me explain:

I had a dream today (more like a nightmare) where I was sitting in a room full of church folk, teens and adults. We were gathered to watch a Christian film and were sitting quietly, when suddenly, every adult stood up and left the room. The film played for a few minutes and the youth sat obediently for as long as they could stand it, and then it happened lol: the youth began dancing on each other, humping, bumpin' n grindin', losing their minds! The sexual tension that had been building between them had become unbearable but the scene I was witnessing was an obvious result of suppression and lack of education.

The funny thing is that I know of so many young church communities where things like this actually happen! Well, not exactly like this, but you get what I mean.

The point is, when children and young adults are taught to suppress their sexualities, they not only find other ways to express them, they find devious and unhealthy ways. I know of churches where youth performed explicit sexual acts in the bathrooms, on youth group retreats, and in the middle of youth group meetings under a blanket for Christ's sake!!
(not me, I swear lol)

Religious leaders need to recognize the damage they are causing our young people and what it is costing their futures sexually. Sex may be forbidden, even frowned upon before marriage, but it was created to be experienced as a healthy joining of two (or more lol) individuals. And how can one get to the healthy part if one's early understandings of sex and sexuality are rife with negativity, confusion, and an unclear sense of one's sexual self? I mean, even masturbation if sinful lol.........get where I'm going with this? Good.

I DO NOT SUPPORT CHRIS BROWN BY POSTING THIS... But I want people to see the HUGE differences between the levels of maturity and intellectuality between these two...

His responses just interest me and I wanted to post this just in case anyone else was interested in hearing what both have been having to say as well.

P.S. He's SO lucky he's not in prison lol

Rihanna Breaks Her Silence on Good Morning America

I have been following this Rihanna/Chris Brown incident for months and I just want to say that I haven't really been a fan of Rihanna's music since her first album. *I was into the kiddy pop lol*

But I must say that Rihanna has grown into a beautiful, STRONG, resilient woman and I truly respect her.

She is a survivor and has become the ultimate role model, as you'll see in these videos. I'll continue to post as she continues to speak out about her abuse.

I applaud her for her courage :)

What Happens When Your Raise Your Kids On BET??


PLEASE Black People,

PLEASE stop raising our babies like this! All this does is perpetuate the stereotype that all Black women are good for is sex and booty-shakin'.

This is
in no way "adorable", as the original uploader of this video claims.

It breaks my heart.....that baby girl can't be any older than 2 years old, and she's on top the table, winin' n grinin' while whoever is taping it cracks up in the background.

We are better than this, Black People.....we are Kings and Queens, not street hoe's and pole dancers......

Our babies deserve better parenting than this...

They deserve the world, so why not give it to them?
