Towards the end of the interview, he responded to question about adding extra security in the school, including increasing the police presence, adding metal detectors and the doctor said that was absolutely the last thing that you wanted to do, to make the children...
mrmaleficent: swiftreality: Remember the young Gay man, Brandon White, who was brutally attacked on video by three cowards in Atlanta because he was gay? Remember how the media and the Atlanta Community were all upset by the video and demanded justice for Brandon White? Well, now some of the very same people who stood behind and supported White, have come forward to say that Brandon White was...
Random Thoughts On The Whitney Houston Funeral
thehuskybro: The next funeral that Jesse Jackson, Jr. should get a front row seat to is at his own. Jesse, Come on, Son! The days of you headlining at Black American Events, still riding on that “I was at MLK, Jr. side” cred are over and really should have been over and done with after you went all hard-core on President Obama after years of either fence-riding or kissing every other...
we have bubble machines: ruperts: I’M NOT OKAY... →
ruperts: I’M NOT OKAY WITH CHRIS BROWN PERFORMING AT THE GRAMMYS AND I’M NOT SURE WHY YOU ARE I’m sick and tired of people acting like it’s no big deal that Chris Brown will be performing at the Grammys. I’m frustrated that the mainstream media is covering this story like it’s any comeback story, like an exiled prince’s return to a former glory, like this is another political timeline — as...

This is why black gays and other gay/queer people of color tend to try to stay as far the fuck away from you as possible. This is unacceptable behavior. I hope you realize that any...
This Is How A Gentrification Convo Usually Goes...
Me: Yeah, I don't like the new Freret Street.
Person 1: Why not?? It's so much to do now!?!?!

My Blogs or Whatever
a-ra: I may have the fewest followers or the fewest fans/viewers on various sites to promote and showcase my craft but I won’t let that get me down. I look at it this way, I’m just a talent that’s still raw and untapped by the rest of the music world. It’s all good here because I feel no pressure from the mainstream and continue to do my art without someone telling me how I need to sound like...
