Election ’08 Part II

BARACK OBAMA - 44th President of the United States.

FINALLY, the victory is ours. I have to first give thanks to the one who makes ALL things possible.

I am pleased that McCain conceded with a decent speech.

President Obama is making those proud who never, in their wildest dreams, ever envisioned such a day.

What will you tell your children and grandchildren? Where were you and what were you doing when you heard the news?

Stop and think how this will affect the lives of the people today and 50 years from now.

This is exactly what this country needed. We should all come away from this monumental event with something. At the very least we should discover a new sense of ambition and SELF-motivation.

The battle is won but the war is just beginning. The reality is that President Obama has a long road ahead.

We need to live our lives from this day forward giving thanks, humbly, respectfully, proudly, and strongly.


Election ’08

This is currently and will most likely be the most important election of my lifetime. I am so proud to be represented by Barack Obama. This is more evidence that minorities are capable of greatness. It is wonderful to know that so many eligible voters, young and old, registered AND came out to vote. It is only 8:58 EST right now but CNN reports: 76-McCain & 175 Obama. Still too early to tell.

However, one thing has pissed me off. There are many stations covering Election Night including CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, UPN, MSNBC, BET, even Telemundo & Univision.

Dancehall Gone Too Far?

When did it become cute to have your dress over your head or your ass laying on the ground in the dancehall?

Why is it that some women use dancehall as a place to skin out themselves and reveal everything that should normally be left up to the imagination.

Overall I believe that musically the caribbean culture is a slight bit more in touch with sexuality than oh let's say Kenny Rogers or Rod Stewart.

I wonder, some woman go through extreme lengths to get dressed for the dancehall, whether you work for your money, clutch clothes, boops man, or leech off of your parents. Whatever the means, after getting dressed do you say to yourself "good now I can go sweep up the dancehall floor with myself?"

Don't get me wrong I love dancehall and the majority of what the artists have to offer. However, every once in a while I have to say 'what di backside is she doing?' or 'but wait-is that what he really said, "Yuh pu**y good so yuh nuh haffi give head"'!!

Is it really the lyrics that give women the vibe to be so slack or is the dancehall an excuse to publically reveal the parts that are meant to bring forth life.

Obviously music must continue whether or not we agree with what the artist is saying but that doesn't mean we can't act like ladies. I can't remember the last time I saw a man showing off his stuff in a dance.

TO BE CONTINUED...When something else wild takes place.
