No Black Bachelor For You!

Posted on

You know, let’s keep it 100. If there was a black Bachelor, no one would be happy.

For one, black women would have a conniption fit. Why? SOME form of fault would be found in the black women they picked.  The women would be too dark, too light, too natural, not natural enough, too much weave, too skinny, too fat, too manufactured, blah, blah, blah. It’d would always be SOMETHING.  The one thing that WOULD be agreed on however is that the women are “too hood” or “not black enough.”  Yea. It would be some fight or some sort.

And speaking of fights….you know fights are egged on during reality shows, right?  Don’t you think VH1 did enough with “Flavor of Love”, “For The Love of Ray J”, “Real Chance at Love”, etc, etc, etc.  Do we really need a show on Primetime TV that shows up being catty? Don’t you think we have enough of that on cable?

Oh, and PLEASE don’t let ABC decide to throw some white girls in the mix.  Can’t you see the controversy now?  Can’t you read the headlines? “Black Bachelor says Producers Pressured him to Pick Exotic or White Women” or “Black Bachelor: I Don’t Understand. Why Are They Mad That I Picked White.”  Honey, I do NOT have the time.

Reality TV is about ratings, and bullshit produces ratings.  But um…ABC is SO unprepared for anything that having a black contestant on the Bachelor will bring. So um…yea…no black bachelor for you!

Endangered Species (Open Season II)

Posted on

Black man in the cross fire–

Another body to raise the ire

Of an already unstable nation–

See, the black delegation

Is restless, very uneasy.

Watch the news and get queasy

From the injustice and the mass hate.

To date,

Black men overpopulate

Prisons, disease cases and

cemeteries–

This should be scary if

One is thinking about survival.

Who will help aid in the revival of

Black family,

If the head of the group

Is being killed off;

assassinated–

Baited,

Into killing others and themselves.

“Americano Blackus Homo Sapiens”

Is what museum tags

Will read if our black men

Continue to feed

Into this

vicious cycle–

Endangered species

Of the most beautiful kind,

Please keep in mind

It’s open season.

No rhyme or reason,

They want you dead

Don’t be mislead,

Don’t fall in line.

Don’t be blind

To what’s in your face…….

Respect Me In The Morning

Posted on

We stand here.

Tension high,

Breathing scattered.

I wish that “be a lady” shit

Didn’t even matter, because

I want to be

Cradled and handled

By you.

Will you still see me

As the black queen

Or will an impromptu love scene

Change your scope, your views?

In the midnight light

Our will can be done

But will you respect me

When I leave?

I’m not saying cleave,

Be a couple, be as one,

But when we are done….will you still

See me the same?

Between me moaning your name

And grabbing your ‘locs

Promise you won’t put me in some little box

And say

“Oh this is what she is”

And not see me for who I am.

As I whisper a soft “damn”

and or “right there” or an “oh please”

Don’t reduce me

To something so unclean.

I’m not obscene;

You just entice and excite.

So I stand here.

Tension high,

Wishing that womanhood

Was banging in my head

Because while I crave to be led

To your bed, I also

Desire your respect later…..
