He don’t Speak For Black Folks

Trump and Kanye West

kanye-trump

What was the purpose of the meeting that took place between President Donald Trump and Kanye West?  Besides national entertainment.  Trump wouldn’t invite a REAL African American Intellectual to the White House to discuss important topics to the Black community.  Instead, our president is wasting time with the “bad choice to speak for Black folks” Kanye West.  The man is mentally disturbed and no longer hiding the fact he is CRAZY.  Kanye has shown us in the pass he wasn’t doing well so it’s no surprise we get to sit in our homes and watch this poor sick guy’s intellectual distortion and mad man rantings on full display.  Brother Kanye please take your medicine and stay out of the white house.  You look like a fool and trying to include the rest of us Black folks in your vaudeville black face farce of love and admiration for the president.  Well brother, I’m sad to think that you have no love for your people.

After all, wasn’t you who said, “(president) Bush don’t like Black people.” on National televised Katrina Hurricane Fundraiser as we witnessed Blacks dying in the dome stadium.  You became our hero then but we don’t know who you are now.  I’m disappointed that you would have put on the hat of “Making American Great Again” as a Trump supporter and bathe Trump in one glowing complement after another.  Brother, when you compared Trump to a father figure because your own father wasn’t around was waayyy too much!  Over the top …

White people Kanye doesn’t speak for me!

Bill Cosby

I consider Melony McGant a special person whose prose is of the spiritual dimension.  Her reflection of Bill Cosby is profound and worth sharing.

A Reflection on Bill Cosby

Beautiful People,
And as I watch and listen to so many of us Celebrate the Demise of Bill Cosby, I Am Saddened.  His actions of course Were Wrong.
Quiet as it’s kept, so many men in power did the same thing. As a Society We Accepted It.
Now so many are focusing on his sickness for it is a Sickness that Has Long Flourished in many forms throughout the United States and other parts of the World throughout Time.
I have in my life learned to forgive horrible things that happened to me at a young age and to know that no matter what happens, we all get to heal, grow and prosper.
In this Time of Duality…
I pray that we all remember our frailty, our failures and mistakes.
And in doing so, Remember the generous Dr. Bill Cosby who has helped so many achieve their goals and contributed financially when few others would.
This Is My Hope and My Prayer!
 And So It Is With Love!
Always, Melony

 

RICH MEN BEHAVING BADLY + Russell

New Target: Rich White Men Behaving Badly

One thing I can say about corporate America, this entity is the epitome of what America should be or we want it to be.  Large corporations hold up the legislative rules in our society.  Corporate America says you should NOT do the following:

  1. No matter what, you cannot say the N-word. And, you can’t hold plantation style weddings with Black slaves.
  2. You can’t ”ruthie” a girl and take advantage of her sexually. It’s against the law.
  3. You can’t divorce your wife and marry your 18 year old step-daughter. But, you will still be able to make movies, depending if you are Woody Allen.
  4. Do not take sexual advantage of a fellow employee with threats of career retribution.

Rich white men, you can’t be a pig about your wants and desires just because you know how to bully a deal,  by the way that’s why you are famous and rich, or just plain powerful and rich.  I can’t believe the white men who have tumbled.  Even my own white man, Matt Lauer. $25 million dollar man.  Dang I suspected Matt when it was rumored about a love child with a co-host.  Where there is smoke there’s fire.  Or, what is done in the dark will come to light.  More motherly sayings.

This all started with Billy Bush and the conversation he had with the presidential candidate, Donald Trump.   I love the statement …. Grab ‘em by the pussy.  Sexual harassment has become a national reckoning effecting rich white men in various sectors of our society.  Here are a few who have fallen.

Billy Bush – Access Hollywood with Donald Trump

Harvey Weinstein – movie mogul

Charlie Rose – host PBS and CBS

Bill O’Reilly – FOX talk-show host

Glen Thrust – prominent political journalists

Russell Simmons – Hip-Hop Mogul

Senator Al Franken – Ex- Entertainer

James Levine –  music director for Boston Symphony

And there is more ….

The daily question is who is next?
