You are not Entitled to a Big MacHere's what I mean, Lets say someone in high power, or at a high position or has a gold medal or PhD etc.goes into McDonald's and wants to skip the line because they are "This that and the third" and they Demanding to be respected, or demanding service simply because they feel that they are entitled to be respected.. Yet IMO, if you are a patron or customer, you have to respect the Clerks for what they do and they'll respect you, if not, then it's your right to feel some strife and want to rant a bit. but not simply because you think you deserve to be catered to. Stand In Line and wait your turn... You are not entitled to a Big Mac.
So many people use their clout or rank to step on folks toes and when they're down and out, they're only angry with themselves. Don't mistreat folks who may not have what you have. because when they get there. They'll BE THERE when you're down and out.. be respectful.
Having A George Carlin Moment:
Some folks are pro black, some are unapologetically black, not me! i'm openly black..lol
Yeah, I was thinking of Carlin's "You Are Diseased" when i wrote that
Good Business & Black Business
Black business isn't always Good business. But you don't have to like the people you do business with. #thinkaboutthatI wrote that due to many postings for Supporting Black Businesses, of course this is after all the turmoil of the summer, I love the idea of support local, buy local. as well as Buy black. but sometimes dealing with folks of our own kind isn't easy either.

Shared after the shootings of Sterling & Castle
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction.Actually it's a lyric from a song called "Mass Destruction" by a group called Faithless.
Prayer: Shared after the Murders
Some say prayer does nothing others say say voting, politics and running for office does nothing.
They say Action does It All: But Acting Violently only entices more violence.
None of those are solutions to problems but you gotta do what you gotta do to make things BETTER not worse ..
My Initial post after Castle's Murder
The world gets to watch our people get slain on demand. modern public lynchings...
Human League Said it Best
I'm Only Human, of flesh and blood, a man....We are all human, RACE shouldn't be a debate.
I'm not a writer

Some folks are worried about a nationality, i'm joked out because black folks are IntercontinentalI Posted that due to the folks and their "What's your nationality?" talk
They post pics of perverted soft porn and passing it along as a way of saying they worship the black woman.I Wrote this simply because I see on my timeline, these guys posting Perverted sexual images of black women and saying things like "Nubian Queen", at the same time, they call their own girlfriends B's and W's... and it's sad,
The Shift Happens
Reality and the perception thereof varies per individual.
The Shift happens Drastically when we are forcefully made aware of the Events which affect us on a global scale.
We are typically unaffected until those things become the prime reason we change the way we live our lives. And there are many examples that I can give you but I won't in this particular post. Because I believe that we all have experienced something in your life that changed the way we view the world , as well as whatever our current situation is.
