“Historically speaking I've never been a Beyonce fan but I'd buy a concert ticket on the the strenght of this song alone. It brings back the days when artist had something to say about love without making it all about sex and bump and grind. Here she shows it's much deeper than the pump and stroke of genitals, it's serious stuff. Twelve stars on this on girl and the video was artistically simple but impacting in a world addicted to shock and aww.”
This man is soooooo Bush's mini-me it's ridiculous and Tea Baggers and GOP zombies are "all in" on this one. It's absolutely amazing how these two groups are so snowed into backing individuals that could careless about their supporters. This is a very dangerous time in American history unfolding before our very eyes. Please pay attention. Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
Today's easy access to instant fame while in many ways can be a great thing it can also flip and become the proverbial "train wreck" nightmare for celebrities’ especially young celebs whose fame has come too fast or inheritance of celebrity. Whatever the combination, with each instant of young celebrity we can't help but recount the soap operaish series of Lindsey Lohan and wonder who will be next? Below are three baby celebs that came up on the Black American Opinion (BAO) radar.
Miley Cyrus, a.k.a. Hannah Montana
Little Ms. Mouthy Miley, suffers from a chronic case of diarrhea of the month, an inflated ego that's in need of a serious anchor to bring her back to earth if she in fact ever in her young life experienced gravity. Granted she is a talented young woman but has gone unchecked for far too long. Ok you are rich Hannah but damn, don’t get it confused “to whom much is given much is require” and the least you can do is be nice.In Nashville and other cities she is becoming a real pain in the ass for service and waiter staffers everywhere.She’s breaking her dad Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Achy Breaky Heart”.
Bobbi Kristina Brown
Poor lil girl, genetics are a strong force with this one. The heiress to what will be left of her celebrity parent's Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston's cracked out throne she really didn't stand much of a chance. Growing up in the "green rooms" of her parents she has seen a lot for her age and now it appears that she is starting to take up some of their drug hobbies according to numerous reports. The sense is that Bobbi Kristina is just trying to find her own way and come out of the shadows of larger than life character celeb parents. Hope she finds a better way to do it other than drugs and sex tapes.
Justin is probably the longer shot of the three for becoming a cliché train wreck but the concern for him has to do more with the microwave success and randomness of it all. His saving grace would appear to be that his mother is very involved with his day to day and he has a great mentor in R&B artist, producer Usher who can relate well due to his own meteoric success at a young age. Although Justin's seems to have good people within his circle to keep him grounded some might say he is being given a long leash of freedom that can be dangerous for young men of means and opportunities and Justin certainly has plenty.
Sometimes the best fight in the battle to save our children is to stand still and let life teach them the best lessons. To do this can be painful and requires faith but pays the return on your investment. Be strong for your children and just do it.
There are season and cycles that we each experience in our daily journey. Some of these cycles are good and some are bad but they are our journey. Make the best of your unique journey by breaking the bad cycles to enhance the good cycles while helping others along the way. You were abused as a child, so get help, don't abuse children and encourage every child you have access to instead. Bottom-line here is we are all broken in some way but don't be defined by this brokenness. Be a beckon to someone facing trails in their journey while building on little victories towards greater victories.
It has to be great being "ghetto" and "bama" at the same time. What freakin planet are we on? DAMN, DAMN, DAMN there are some things that take black folks back two hundred years and this sh*t qualifies as one. President Obama's historical presidency though significant can't blot out the frequency of these embarrassing scenarios that are becoming an acceptable expectation in our community. Wake up people.

Be a credit to your race today and not someone who devalues their own while having an incredible ability to sh*t on your own doorstep where your children play and call it the "hood" and blame the white man's system for what you do to yourself.
