That question sparked a heated debate among two members of The View, this morning.
While Meghan and Joy were going at it, I was vigorously shaking my head NO. NO! NO! NO! Continue reading
I wrote the following poem for Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina. But I’d like to send it out as a condolence to the Crutcher Family.
While I was laying low, trying not to write anything evil about our new President, i.e my views on his travel ban and trying to insure his next election by impeding voter’s rights, I decided to work on another project to divert my attention.
That project is a book of poems entitled, ‘A Woman’s Voice: Book of Poems.’
I’d like to share with you one of those poems. It’s entitled, ‘Yellow Dresses.’
Back in the day, I could totally rock a yellow dress, like Tracee Ellis Ross is doing in the picture. But not so much today. That is why ‘Yellow Dresses’ is followed by the poem, ‘I Am Becoming A Budgie.’
I am Brown!
I am sun scorched and dark
My skin the color of burnt sugar
Yellow is my favorite color
It is the color of eternity
It makes my brown skin glow
Men, when they see me in yellow, hollar
“Hey, big leg girl
Where ya going?
Can I come to?”
Yellow is my favorite color
You see me in no other
Navy blue I am not
Beige is for cowards
Red is for hoes
And that blows
Cause I like red
But yellow is my favorite color
From being a long tall drink of water
I am becoming a short cup of tea
Of course, there’s more to the poem, but you’d have to buy the book to read it. This book is not on my website or any other place except Amazon.

Three stories caught my attention this week. First up:
Brad and Angelina.
Honestly, I must admit that I’m surprised that Brad and Angelina made it this far after Angelina’s illness. And I always figured that she’d be the one to bail; not Brad. Continue reading
I’ve always thought that Catherine Hapstall (Amy Okuda) was the one who killed the Hapstalls. Well, she and her boyfriend.
She was painting away the night their aunt was killed, but when her brother came into the room, she remarked, “I didn’t know you went out.” How would she have known that he went out unless she went looking? And since she wasn’t sleeping with him why was she looking for him?
And for sure, when Frank jumped on Annalise as the nurses and doctors were wheeling her down the hall, he’s going to frame her for the ADA’s and Annalise’s shooting. But I don’t think she shot them. I think it was someone close to Annalise who shot her. And someone who had reason to shoot the ADA who shot her. In other words multiple killers.
PS. All you Scandal lovers, I think the President is about to be a single man (No Mellie or Olivia). It’ll be interesting next season to see the girls fight it out over him.
