Black History Year...Every Year

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...

Right, we need to listen to the clear voices of leaders and live it. The insults of white haters shows their disease, their spiritual emptiness. When we go under the spell and take insult in and hate ourselves, we lose self-respect and can attract more insult almost like we’re waiting for it. We need to see how we’ve been infected! I could care less about a $1200.00 pair of shoes. Money is more like a weapon, a protection. Shop and frisk: you’re not supposed to be able to buy nice things.

David Paterson is definitely being railroaded, arm-twisted, pressured, and brow-beaten out of the governorship. But there are a couple of reasons for that. The first is that, for whatever reason, New Yorkers don't care for him. His approval ratings were in the toilet (and that's not to say that they necessarily had good reason for that - the voting population as a whole is basically unknowledgable about the intracacies of politics) ... but, the truth is that it's highly unlikely that he...

As I do not follow sports, I also missed this ad. It only came to my attention when some of my white friends on Facebook joined a fan club for it. That caused me pause, as when a month or so ago, all of them joined the group "Pull your pants up" or "Pant's on the Ground." These are always red flags for me, when white folks jump all over something with AA imagery. That suggest to me something insidious operating on the level of their unconscious.

Disagree with the negative takes. It's funny because you wouldn't expect such a little fella to come up with such a strong way to get his point across about his mama (first) and snack (second). It was simply a joke. Not an authentic take on Black life or serious study of single Black mothers, their children and their dating partners. It was just a humorous 30 second spot. This is one of the times where I think as a cultural/racial group, some of us are being a little too sensitive. If a...

So lemme ask you this, Ms. Savvy ... What would happen if your little man slapped a fully grown adult Black man (boyfriend or otherwise)? Would there be consequences? (Good, bad or indifferent?)

I didn't think the ad was all that funny, but I wasn't offended by it either. If anything, seeing a young man defending his mom like that is positive, IMO.

I gasped! and then i ROTFL when i saw this commercial. The fact that the child was in a position to be "guard dogging" his "mama" was kinda weird and cute at the same time. Also the brotha didn't have to look at mama's behind and legs in such a biscuit and gravy sopping manner. I think i agree that a white child would not have been depicted as being placed in this position.

Even if the man was drooling over the boy's mother, it still doesn't give the boy the right to slap the chips out of his hand. That kid in real life would've had the taste buds knocked out of his mouth, for slapping a chip out of a grown man's hand.
