I must've missed that commercial, when I was picking up the hot wings. In a way, I'm kinda glad that I did miss it, because I would've been ticked off after seeing it too. Yemaya said: "This little boy in a satirical way was saying to a grown ass man, you will respect my mama!" And that little boy would've had his narrow behind sizzling after he said that to me.

Have we, as a people, settled for a measly 28 days (29 during Leap Years) of Black history? Do we believe just one month is good enough to tell our story, a story that still hasn't been told or been given the justice it deserves? Do we want our history to continue being marginalized? Are we satisfied that Black History Month often just focuses on slavery; the Jim Crow Era; the accomplishments of our black brothers and sisters in the fields of entertainment and sports; the Civil Rights...
