About Me

I was practically born a member of the Democratic Party. I began registering people to vote while still in elementary school, often after Sunday school. I'm excited about the future of our party because good, in the end, always wins!

"Can't Touch This"

Educators are simply the best. This parody of MC Hammer's smash hit, 'Can't Touch This', is hilarious. Enjoy!

He "needs to learn". WTH

Mississippi Republican tells Black lawmaker he ‘needs to learn’ as Confederate emblem flies behind them

A live television interview with two Mississippi lawmakers was tainted by a man who insisted on flying the state’s flag with a Confederate emblem in the background.

Just hours after Mississippi’s legislature voted to allow the Confederate battle emblem to be removed from the state flag, MSNBC spoke to state House Minority Leader Robert Johnson III.

As Johnson spoke, a man behind him positioned the Mississippi flag so that the Confederate battle emblem could be seen above the Black lawmaker’s head.

“The flag is just a beginning,” Johnson said, motioning to Mississippi’s Republican Speaker of the House Philip Gunn, who was also in the live shot.

Bias Against Women Driven By People Who Think It Doesn't Exist

From Rawstory

Bias against women driven by people who think it doesn’t exist: study

Published
June 29, 2020.

Managers who believe gender discrimination is a thing of the past showed bias against women by suggesting a female job candidate be paid eight percent less than an identically qualified man, according to new research.

The study, which comes after a United Nations report said around 90 percent of people globally hold some prejudice against women, found that bias persists even when female representation in a particular field increases.

“Quite critically, this research demonstrates that managers who think bias is no longer an issue in their profession are, perhaps ironically, the key drivers of bias,” the authors said.

Researchers looked at veterinary medicine — a profession that used to be dominated by men but now has a substantial female workforce.

"Step up"....indeed. 🙄

Prince and Chaka ....Nothing Else Needs To Be Said

Thanks for the computer love!



Thanks for my heart. You helped to make my morning!

Matthew 28....Like Thunder!!!

"Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up."

The best part about Easter for me, besides the candy, was rushing to church in my best to see mom sing in the choir. They always "tore it up". The only catch, it meant we had to be ready in time for sunrise! Stockings, slips, hair (done the night before), and all the ironing had to be done so that we could get to church by 6am.
I found this video of a song I've been looking for called Matthew 28. Donald Lawrence and his choir are awesome. It brings back memories from my youth, watching my mom belt out praises in songs that told the story. Enjoy!



Shout out to all the church choir members! Are there any sopranos out there?

DL For The Win!

I don't always agree with DL. However, Mr. Hughley is absolutely correct in this clip about the Smollett situation.




Favorite quote from the clip: "Chicago has become a whipping post for everything that is wrong with our communities. Fixing Chicago won't fix most black people's problems. Fixing most black people's problems will fix Chicago."
