by vivrant thang on blog posts you should be reading
In the spirit of spreading the linky love, here’s a roundup of posts I enjoyed over the past week. As I’ve mentioned, I read a lot of blogs and often fall WAY behind. I hope you find some new blogs here to stalk so you can share in my misery! I plan to do this regularly.
- Single Ma was able to tell her job to kiss her en-tire ass (figuratively of course) – even as they offered her everything but their first borns to get her to stay. All because of wise financial decisions (and an FU fund) she’s made over the years. She is the ISH. I am SO inspired.
- field negro breaks down why he loves his hometown of FeelaKilladelphia. I was going to leave a comment with only 8 words: Home of Jill Scott and Bilal. Nuff said. They getting real serious in the comments though so um, I didn’t think my two cents would have been welcomed.
- I had been giving AverageBro the serious side-eye for his favorable review of the disasterous snoozefest that was the straight-to-video Three Can Play That Game. He redeemed himself big time with his post, Top 13 Debits To The Black Race. He’s dead on with each and every one. I don’t claim nary one of them fools. Ya’ll can have them. They have collectively set us back 4384973947389473 steps.
Chris Rock on Black Progress in US
The Beautiful Struggler posed the question, ” What do you, as Black men, need or want from Black women that you are not getting? ” Check the young tenderoni, “The Handsome Succeeder” breaking it down so it can forever and consistently be broke. Made me take another look at my tenderoni, that is until I remembered he told me I snore like his Dad.
- White Folk Shyt, indeed. Exactly what I thought when I read the story in the paper.
- You all need to be keeping up with what’s going on with ya’lls Colored People Organization and the horrific Dubar Village tragedy. You know Al Sharpton and his press-n-curl are up in the mix.
- Soul Bounce has started counting down their 100 Favorite Soul/R&B songs. There was a catfight in the comments over the ranking of Whitney’s I’ll Always Love You. I had to get involved when some fool said he/she couldn’t think of 30 songs better than that one. Oh really?
And if Soul Bounce is not one of your daily reads, you need to get into it. Now. Maxwell has.
I’ll repeat that again.
Maxwell has. Yes, THAT Maxwell.
