Disrespecting the Dead!

769391_cemetary_roadI am writing this because yesterday I was on AOL and I read that Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson’s “friend,” and dermatologist said that Michael had a gay lover.  For many years people all over the world have had things to say about Michael Jackson, so that is nothing new.  What pissed me off is this man, a supposed friend and confidant of Michael Jackson, would put him out on Front Street, when he is not here to defend himself.

I can go online and see dozens of pictures of Dr. Klein and Michael smiling and I can’t help but wonder what horrible things people will say about me after I leave this earth. The man has children, parents, siblings, and friends that love him and are forced to defend him when they should be allowed time to mourn his death. People will say that he was in the public eye and to that I say, “SO WHAT!” Who Michael Jackson had sex with is none of my business. I don’t believe he was gay but even if he was, again, it is not my business.

Black Man! Daddy!

400643_uncle_and_nephewI want to start out by saying that this is my article filled with things I have seen through my eyes.  I want to thank everyone that participated in the part one of Black Man.  I was going to write about enablers and the black man but I will save that for part three.

GOD LOVED YOU SO MUCH THAT HE MADE YOU A DAD!

There are so many sisters with families. The most important person missing from a lot of these families is daddy. I drive transit buses for a living and for most of the month; you see a majority of women and children. When the first week of the month rolls around, DADDY”S HOME! He’s grocery shopping with his family, getting new clothes and shoes at the mall, his woman is paying HIS bus fare and all is good. When that week is over you don’t see him anymore.

Black Man

407915_street_soldierWARNING:  I am going to piss some people off with what I’m going to say but it needs to be said.  I love black men and would like one of my own but our community is in trouble.  It’s because of this love that I am writing this article.

I was at work last night, driving my bus when I began to think about my poetry cd that I’m working on. I then thought of my poem entitled, “BLACK MAN.” A few of the lines came to my head and then I got the urge to write this article. I will share those lines with you:

“SPIKE SAID WAKE UP! TO DO MINIMUM IS NOT ENOUGH. BLACK MAN! SLEEPING WITH MEN, SMOKE AND SELL DRUGS, KILLING OURSELVES, AND ALL THAT STUFF. OUR BLACK MAN WE NEED YOU. BLACK MAN!” “SPIKE SAID WAKE UP! TO DO MINIMUM IS NOT ENOUGH. ALWAYS HAVE FUN MAKING THE BABIES BUT WON’T TAKE CARE OF THEM. OUR BLACK DADS WE NEED YOU. BLACK MAN!”
