Since 11/29/15 I knew that I needed to be strong, I knew I needed to push on through whatever I was feeling to be there for you. When it’s all said and done, i realized that things will never get better unless I allow them to. There’s a block in my heart and it’s keeping me stuck/attached to what we had…
There was a time when I never thought I’d find the fairy tale love, you know, that love that you see in movies and read about in books. The couple meets, they create their story, and then they live happily ever after. Never did I believe in this lifetime or the next that I would be able to feel that, but I did. TRUE LOVE is so pure that the very smell of the person drives you into a euphoric state where intimacy doesn’t become the end result, but the essence of that person wrapping around you and engulfing every fiber of your being. That is what I felt…and I had it…for 6 years.
As an AfricanAmerican man…. Call me whatever negative connotation you can find, but I honestly don’t see a problem here. We live in a world where it’s accepted to make a transition from FEMALE to MALE and vice versa but this young woman is being DRAGGED through social media for doing what she believed to be in support of African Americans or to give herself the chance to experience what we do on a daily basis.
I say these things without the prior knowledge of what she has contributed or taken from our community. Then again, this is not a post about Rachel Dolezal but more of a response to how people are attacking her.
Here’s a bit of the story. Said female LIED to get into the NAACP by stating that her race was African American, as the story unfolds, it comes out that she has adopted black family members and even posted pictures of her adopted brother, who is black, as her own. Her parents then decided to come out and out her because they felt what she was doing was wrong. As the NAACP has stated, it wouldn’t have mattered what race she was when applying.
Just reading these tweets/posts/comments of blacks talking about how they are OFFENDED is boiling my blood. This woman, regardless of HOW she got in, did so in ADVOCACY of OUR people. Would I take an African American female who lies on their application in the race section for a job and blast her because she wears blonde hair, fake body parts, and skin lightening enhancements? No.
I think in this day and age, so many things are blown out of proportion. We have a CELEBRITY formerly known as BRUCE JENNER who recently transitioned to CAITLYN JENNER and as he was lightly dragged through the inter space…. As this has died down, now we can jump on this NAACP LEADER for doing what she felt would assist her in the fight for African Americans.
I’m just in shock that this TRANSRACIAL woman is a problem. Again, I don’t know her or her background but why attack her for her lifestyle choice?
Actor, philanthropist, director, producer and author LeVar Burton first jumped into the spotlight in 1977 when he portrayed young Kunta Kinte on the revolutionary and award-winning ABC miniseries Roots. Nailing his first audition ever, Burton was given his first professional role — by portraying this Alex Haley hero he became a part of a national and generational consciousness.
In 1983, Burton became host and executive producer of PBS’ Reading Rainbow, kicking off the show’s impressive 23-year run and setting the standards that would eventually lead to over 200 broadcast awards. Accolades forReading Rainbow include a Peabody Award and 26 Emmys, a dozen of which Burton won as host and producer.
In 1987, Burton took on the role of Geordi La Forge for Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek: The Next Generation which ran until 1994 and basically restarted theStar Trek franchise as a going concern on television. He…

Yeah, I don’t think this is something that will work in NYC….but if you guys try it…LEMME KNOW!
This winter started out pretty tame, but now many areas of the country are getting slammed by winter storms. Sure, the crazy East Coast “snowpocalypse” never happened, but we’ve gotten plenty of snow so far this season. To make matters even worse, northern states on the East Coast are about to get hit hard once again as Winter Storm Neptune batters New England this weekend with as much as 20 inches of additional snow in some areas.
Shoveling snow can be a huge pain. In fact, it can even be deadly; dozens of people across the country die each winter after suffering heart attacks while shoveling.
Now, however, there’s a new snow removal lifehack that could literally save your life.
