My Thoughts: Misunderstandings within the Human Race.

NOTE: There are misspellings and punctuation errors in this note but these are my random thoughts that I just put down. This note is more like an informal journal.

I have done so many research (well not really classified as "research") and have found that different cultures, just people in general, seem to have misconceptions about the other( that's a "no duh" statement, i know). They generalize based on what they "feel" is…

'Dark Girls' Doc Tackles Colorism In The Black Community

Is 'colorism' still an issue today? This is 2011, and yet we live in a world where some dark skin people still feel looked down on and belittled. 'Dark Girls' is a documentary set for release later this year, featuring interviews with women about their experiences, not only in the world at large, but also within the Black community.

Check out some excerpts below. What's your take on this, and what has been your experience? - Lou C-D…

Jehovah's Witness could have gotten shot today.

Some woman stopped her car next to me while I was waiting for the bus after walking Emily to work. I almost pulled my weapon and drew down on her. Foolish lady. She was quite nice, offering me some Jehovah's witness pamphlet. I politely declined and she politely accepted my refusal. Don't pull your car over next to someone if it's not on fire, it's not kosher to your health and well-being.

I feel invincible

So I have been dealing with money problems lately and I never thought I would be. I ha 700 dollars saved in my account once upon a time and things started to dwindle, just like the hours I was getting at work. On top of that I finally really started buckling down on my spending, even though I didn't even spend that much to begin with) and started taking charge. I discontinued magazines that were trying to take my money, and on top of that AT&T are a bunch of liars and put my account into…

INTERVIEW: Graveshift, A Family Affair

I had the pleasure to speak with Graveshift, a young band from the Bronx. It’s a family band that consists of four unique siblings. The eldest is the bassist, Erica (21), then the lead guitarist Alexis (18), the drummer Joshua (15) and Jonas the lead vocalist (14). Starting out six years ago, the band’s name stems from the family last name, Grave, melded with the term “graveyard shift” because on their first gig, they were the very last act to go on, and the last shift of the work… Continue

Upon Seeing Bob Kaufman, I saw Myself...in Gunther Jackson

...You fought, you tried, you failed, you died.  Then, you were born when you saw the sun and it's fading light and sat all through a storm that never came -- instead you were left alone, with your dignity and determination to live to the end of a promise which you did not make and therefore could not break.  It was written that in dreams begin responsibilities – but the hard part is taking the dream into the afternoon sun…and watching it fade with the sinister cover of a five o’clock… Continue
