Black History Month

It's upon us once again,

Black History Month

Contrary to popular belief, Black History Month is in February NOT because it's the shortest month of the year.

It's because in 1926, it originated as Black History Week, between the birthdays of Abolitionist Frederick Douglass and President Abraham Lincoln, by Dr. Carter Woodson, the father of Black History. (Go to the link above for more info.)

This month celebrates the contributions of Black folks in America (For those of you who didn't know.).

Recently, this holiday has come under fire by many Black celebs, like Morgan Freeman, because they feel like there's no need for a Black History Month. They would prefer that Black History should be treated like AMERICAN History.

While I agree that our (As in Black folks) history should be taught along with ALL OTHER history, I'm not stupid enough to stop and/or discountinue Black History Month before that day happens.

Which won't be anytime soon.

Until then, go out and learn alittle something about Black folks.

And turn off that damn BET for a change...

Coretta Scott King: R.I.P.

Sorry that I'm posting this late, but I've been going threw some thangs, lately.

Man and Wife

MLK & CSK in happier times...

This lady went threw some real stuff because of her and her late hubby's views and beliefs. But she always kept her dignity throughout the whole of her life.

The Famous Funeral Photo

CSK with her daughter, Bernice.

The one thing about her funeral I didn't like was that some people who spoke put their political views into the eulogy, like The Rev. Joseph Lowery.
That wasn't right.

Mrs. King's funeral should be about her AND NOT ABOUT POLITICS.

Rest In Peace, Mrs. King.
I know that you and him are together again in Heaven.

BTW, tell my Aunt Eva up there her nephew, Ken, said "Hi."

Cheney: What the Hell?!!

Hey Dick,

What the *#@&%, dude!!!

What the Hell is going on with the VP?

How do you "accidentally" shoot someone in the FACE, NECK, & CHEST?!!

Why did it take 24 hours to report it?

Was he trying to send the guy a message?

The Press needs to look into this more closely...;_ylt=AgAFIUkZ8_FrV5Zmun7HRfgGw_IE;_ylu=X3oDMTA2ZGZwam4yBHNlYwNmYw--

Gotta go...

I'm going home to NJ for a funeral in a few hours.


Especially when it's close family members. I'll update the blog when I get back in a few days.

To my Aunt Eva,


And tell Grandpa and Grandma in Heaven that I said "Hi!" and "I love'em!"
