Tweet ( It would have been real nice if I could have in good conscience stayed out of the entire Herman Cain for president dialog. Being asked a direct question regarding his candidacy and whether I  could support him blew that whole idea out of the water. Since I am not one to “blindly support” anyone regardless of color(GOP... [Read more...]

Tweet ( I just spent the week in New Orleans, the powerbase for one of the most talented, powerful and destructive forces in the history of music: Lil Wayne.  I’ve admittedly bopped my head to the tunes of Lil Wayne in the past, feeling the same guilt that any man might feel if he were to enjoy a crack pipe or shot of heroine, knowing... [Read more...]

Tweet ( I remember years ago sitting in an enclosed patio of a New York City restaurant when a man came up and pressed his private parts against the window. Like a scene out of Sex in the City my girlfriend and I gave him the itty bitty sign and kept on eating. I was about 25 years old at the time, that was then; but the other day while... [Read more...]

It is evident that the modern athlete, sports fan and sports talk radio pundit all contribute to what can be described as the selfish, self-centered, individualistic and money hungry mentality of grown men who play games for a living, especially African... [Read more...]
