ISAIAH WASHINGTON IS A JERK

This guy Washington has personally offended me. Not because he called his colleague the "F" word (although I think that him saying that word is deplorable), but because he sought counseling for using it. Being a jerk is not a psychiatric ailment, and he knows it. You will not find his problem in the DSM [...]

GOD BLESS THE CHILD… THAT’S IN THE WILL

Alert:  I’m about to badmouth a famous dead guy. By now we all know James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, is dead.  According to David Letterman this is significant because it means that now the hardest working man in show business is Regis Philbin.  I’d argue Nick Cannon, but whatever.  For black folk it’s significant [...]

AM I BEING A HATER?

From young we try to teach our children that hard work pays off.  If you work hard you will learn your ABC's and 123's, and that will make mommy and daddy happy.  If you work hard at keeping your bedroom clean you'll get a sticker, and that will make you happy because then you'll know [...]

MADONNA’S (BLACK) BABY DADDY DRAMA

You've got to give it to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.  Those two sure know how to legally adopt orphaned children.  They go to impoverished countries, do some charity work, and collaborate with established adoption agencies in order to make educated decisions about adding a child to their family.  Madonna, on the other hand, seems to have no clue.  [...]

DADDY, WHAT’S A NUKE?

By now everyone knws that President Kim Jong-il of North Korea has decided to set sanity aside and test a weapon of mass destruction.  Sadly, while the U.S. is tied up in Iraq fighting a war based on the suspicion of the existence of WMDs (only to find out that there were none, but that's [...]

FROM GIFTED & TALENTED TO PRISON

I've been thinking about this all week.  A young man that I went to junior high school with was arrested on gun possession charges linked to the murder of a popular NYC sanitation worker.  The school that we went to was for so-called "gifted and talented" students.  It was small, about eight classes all together, [...]

THE ‘CROCODILE HUNTER’ WAS A DAD

Of all the things that stand out for me about the late Steve Irwin, aka the Crocodile Hunter, was the fact that at the end of the day he was a family man.  He had two children and a wife.  The youngest of his children is my son's age, and that little boy will never be able to [...]

WHAT WOULD YOU DO…

if someone told you that your toddler had been molested by a neighbor?  According to an article in today's New York Times a dad in a quiet Connecticut suburb did what so many of us say we would:  he killed the neighbor.  I said "say" in the previous sentence because most of us are slightly [...]

WAR IN THE WORLD

We all know by now that one of America's best friend's, Israel, is giving Lebanon a good ol' fashioned ass whuppin' in the name of expelling the terrorist group Hezbollah from, well, the world.  We hear the stories of missiles and rockets blowing stuff/people up.  Apparently Israel is "winning" because they have killed more people with US weapon technology [...]

Yesterday the host of New York City’s number one ranked “Star and Bucwild Morning Show” on Clear Channel Radio’s Power 105.1 FM was fired. The reason for Troi Torain’s (a.k.a.
