Latest Flicks / Fences: Mr. Washington, Keep Your Day Job
« on: December 25, 2016, 12:35:09 pm »
Monotonous monotone of monologues
With no more insight than a Nigger stealing watermelons from a White man
And the casting of Denzel as a dying old man was a bad call on the part of the director with his endless closeups
Closeups best seen from a live theater rather than the CinemaScope of a movie screen proving that Denzel should keep his day job

Latest Flicks / La La Land: Andy Hardy Would Be Proud

La La Land
Yes it is a musical
That is plausible, complete and entertaining
Micky Rooney and Judy Garland are all grown up in the 21st Century
The kids even get together to put on a Hollywood play,
if only Micky and Judy got married.....

Vox Populi / West Point Black Female Graduates Raised Fist
« on: May 15, 2016, 07:33:23 am »
So these young, educated ladies made the news
They did it with what I feel is a Black CULTURE celebration
While they will not be punished (They have to attend a sensitivity class)
Their action has sparked outrage among Trump voters who see it all as acts of hate
What comes to mind is the Black CULTURE of Black old ladies kicked off a train for the act of laughing
It seems, to me, that "everything about Black CULTURE is either illegal, immoral or uncouth": I said that in 1980...at a Army base

Sports Talk / Basketball: A Simple, "Pure" Change
« on: April 16, 2016, 06:26:27 am »
http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/sports/wp/2016/04/15/its-a-point-guards-game/?hpid=hp_no-name_graphic-story-b%3Ahomepage%2Fstory

I read a Jerry Brewer story striking my core thoughts
I read a story this morning about Basketball
How a simple "handcheck" rule change
Changed the game significantly
Opening things up for Curry
But it was Isaiah Thomas
Who took exception
To one word
"Pure"

Vox Populi / Why Little Girls (still) Want The White Doll
« on: March 24, 2016, 05:00:35 am »
LAST weekend
I was at my cousins
She told me of this friend
Who had a 'good' grade of hair
Quickly correcting herself...I noticed
I let her continue as it was not the time
The time that I wanted to be White myself
I was young jumping out the tub to a comb
Thinking if I combed my wet hair it would stay
Almost the first scene in Spike Lee's Malcolm X
The "smart" Northern Hemisphere leads the world
Into outer space where their pollution rains upon us
As the Southern Hemisphere races for nuclear power
Will we in this 200 - 500 year Industrialized Revolution
Will we ever get little Tamika to embrace the Black Doll?

EDIT: I could use an Artificial Intelligence as good display
But a thought hit me as I heard of the Chicago murder rate
The same repulsion that our little girls feel for the Black Dolls
Is maybe the same repulsion our teenage boys feel with guns
Read it as you may, most of you search for a movie Batmobile

Vox Populi / ANTI-Republican or PRO-Democrat
« on: March 13, 2016, 06:18:10 pm »
I can't for the life of me
Figure out why Democrats are at best ANTI-Republican
And apparently have no clue how to be, to promote or to celebrate PRO-Democrat

Other Comics / I Invented a New Type of Comic Book
« on: September 17, 2015, 06:27:38 am »
Hello friends
Not long ago
With 2 words
I made waves
And here also
Ella Fitzgerald
Photographed
Poised so well

The kid paints
And me I write
A union: shock
Born: '99 Faces'

"The 99 Faces of Mr. Face"
A comic store at 34 S. 40th
Here in Philadelphia, my town
They had nothing like Mr. Face

Born: Help me grow, to speak clearly
As comics go, it is a quick read, at first

Reggie (Co) Produces NAACP Image Awards.
Just three weeks ago I saw TCM
Suddenly you're everywhere

(I'm semi-jealous)

Vox Populi / ThEE Lead (NJ) Republican Falls At The Bridge
« on: January 10, 2014, 12:41:49 am »

http://www.philly.com/philly/business/20140110_Bridge_scandal_may_require_Gov__Christie_to_do_some_introspection.html

This maybe
Was the first time
I saw a whiff of scandal
Bad call wise one
Dare I say
Hillary is no saint
And I despise the word "Bridge-gate"
But all is not well in the Kingdom of John Wayne

General Discussion / Omaha Black "Thug" Baby
« on: January 09, 2014, 03:42:39 am »

http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/07/us/nebraska-swearing-toddler/

A Black Urban baby being encouraged to curse in the worse way by his Black adult caregivers who then post it on line.

I have my theories, and I am fully aware of FoxNews theories BUT a step forward must be found

Then again (my theory) the whole world from Climate Change to WMD

Seems to be in the wrong direction

Do you have theories

Vox Populi / My Best Friend...Is my adoptee

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/dyson-dismisses-phil-robertsons-biracial-grandson-abner-louimas-sodomizer-had-mixed-race-kin-too/

As Black America
If not the Black World
Struggles to define ******
The White World races to adopt Blacks
Right after they've thrown out the Easter Rabbit
Now Romney gets a chance to finally say that "I told you"
After his disastrous visit to a school on the West side of Philadelphia

Sports Talk / Dare I say: Pittsburgh Lives
« on: December 29, 2013, 04:00:16 pm »
Make no mistake
I am a Philly boy through and through
But circumstance has placed me in the vicinity
Of what just may become a Three River, Four team revival
That could be but another link in the glorious history of the Pittsburgh Steelers

Chiefs - 24
Chargers - 24
3 minutes left in 4Q
Gutsy call I know, but hey....

Now as to the game of the day
Fly Eagles Fly
All PA in NJ

Vox Populi / The Blue/Red Debate: Beyond The United State
« on: December 29, 2013, 05:37:09 am »
http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/red-blue-states-move-in-opposite-directions-in-a-new-era-of-single-party-control/2013/12/28/9583d922-673a-11e3-ae56-22de072140a2_story.html?hpid=z1

With a lack of a strong national leadership
Upon the onslaught not of July 2, 1964
But by the influence of Mass Media
The current forum for our future
Lies, in a political sense, locally
California and Texas are big
Big in that they are models
Of a growing Blue/Red
Division better seen
From a global view
In the two local
Democracies
That are so
Very near
Canada
Mexico
