The Mister and Ma Barker Chronicles: The Madness Continues...

Soooo, Mister and MiniMe, Grandma, the Baby Mama and the other two kids went to Florida... I am guessing it was a nice trip. Too bad it didn't end that way!

MiniMe calls me today and she proceeds to tell me about how Mister pulled over on the side of the highway, pulled his Mother out of the car, pushed her down on the grass and proceeded yelling and screaming at her at the top of his lungs like some kinda fool.  Then MiniMe says to me "and Mommy I was crying!!!!!"

oh helllssssss NO!!!!

Yanno, I ain't down for this kinda shit!!! and yanno I can't wait for her to come home so I can find out what was really going on down there.  My daughter will not be exposed to this brand of foolishness... not if I can help it.

Imma need a lawyer. Correction: Imma need money to pay for a lawyer.  Cuz it is time to reduce his vacation time...  she is not to be exposed to his violent side....

What is it about men with small peter weters always coming after big gurls?? What Imma do with that besides try not to laugh????

is everybody's reply option disabled?

So there is this girl who just completed the paralegal program with me, not two weeks out of school was offered 44k which she turned down cuz she said it wasn't enough money. she has two other interviews lined up and is currently making 40 bucks an hour doing legal work on the side. How do some people have these kind of things fall in their lap???

Can Whites declare the end of racism???

...and I don't mean the natural reaction to voice "yeah,by stop being racists."  That is not the purpose of this blog.

My point is that many laws are due to expire. Why the expiration date?  Many laws are passed as needed as a form of social control---nah not control in the way you think, i mean, as society progresses to different social ideas and thoughts, laws are no longer needed and may be deemed archaic such as the adultery laws that are still on many state's books but are never enforced. I mean, when is the last time someone has been criminally convicted in the court of law for being unfaithful? The law came into existence many years ago due to the social times in which it was created and now, unfortunately, adultery is now more socially accepted.  Well, unless of course you are a politician, LOLOLOL, but I digress.

Now I always have to say preface myself by saying, yes, racism does still exists, but it is no where near as prevalent as it was in the 60s.  White lawmakers dare not stand tall and declare well, we have a black President now, so these laws are no longer necessary. We blacks won't say it because then it seems we will no longer have an excuse as to why we cannot collectively get ahead and may have to point the finger at ourselves as to why many of us are not progressing.

I usually do not comment much on politics because I have a general intolerance for anyone declaring mass conspiracies.  I am sorry, call me naive, but I do not believe that there is a group of rich powerful whites sitting in a room somewhere plotting black folks demise.  Yes incidents occur, with cops v. blacks, but the intolerance for such behavior is growing with punishment for these offending officers being swift and severe.

I guess I am one of the few that agree with Clarence Thomas' dissent in the Texas case about the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Once the political pundits started about how much of a Uncle Tom he is, I went to the Supreme Court's website and read it for myself.  To loosely summarize his 10 page dissent, he said that the mechanism that was used during the Civil Rights era to keep blacks from voting, such as testing, fees, etc... is no longer being used and no blacks have complained of such mechanisms being used as of late therefore making the Act no longer necessary.

Seems pretty reasonable to me.

It seems to me that whites face a certain political demise for suggesting that Civil Rights laws are no longer necessary.  So who is left to say so?  Remember, many laws have expiration dates on them with the intention being that by time the law expires, everybody will be on board with that line of thinking and behaving. Also keep in mind, that EVERYBODY in The United States OF America will never be on board. I personally believe, that enough of us Americans are on board. We do have a Black President and although we Blacks had a significant hand in President Obama being elected, he would not be there without Whites.

It is time for self-accountability.  We can be our own worst enemy. I am tired of living in a neighborhood that looks nice but at times can sound like Beirut. I am tired of seeing cops descending in my neighborhood like cockroaches cuz WE are acting like damn fools.  A white person did not walk into our neighborhood and hand us a gun to shoot.  He does not walk into our schools and tell us to drop out and not listen to the teachers.  Yes, to me, it is that simple, we have a choice people.  We have a choice not to buy guns and drugs. We have a choice to go to school and educate ourselves.  We have a choice to be economically more sound and not be so concerned about having a lable on the back of our behinds.  We have a choice to not perpetuate the ever many stereotypes that plague us.  We have a choice to not allow the rascism that existed in this country for centuries and may even exist now, to define if we are going to get ahead. Self accoutability is color blind.

I believe damn near all barriers have been broken down for us. We have a Black President now ya'll, we have got to do better.
