After today, the 92nd edition of Black History Month will be in the books. However, the ongoing lessons of black history will continue as it always has. Everyday learning. Of course many of us in the black community that lingers that notion the everyday values of our history, also however many of us will not. There will be times that we will simply forget, and keep on doing the same things every single time when this occasion of celebration is in the books.

However, let me review the highlights of Black History Month 2018 that I think stood out.

Black Superheroes: Black Panther was blowing up at the theaters and yes for good reason. This was in the works for over a year and it’s about time that this character has been given it’s due. I like the thought that when a predominantly black cast was able to pull this off and actually get positive reviews based on it’s platform! Already, Black Panther is smashing box office records like crazy. And the #BlackPantherChallenges were on point to take the kids especially black boys and girls to see the movie to look at it to support. Of course there are some haters who felt that the movie was all about nationalism, the Democrats, no Gays, or hatred. Stop it. It was a freaking movie! And to top it off, part of the movie was filmed at Tyler Perry Studios. Hate Tyler Perry all you want, especially with the Madea stuff. But when you had that movie being filmed in your studio, and its huge as is now, expect more folks to line up for jobs.

Also already, is Black Lightning blowing up Tuesday Nights. Like Black Panther, Black Lightning is making waves on the CW. It ties in with the comic book storylines and the real world concerns about crime, gangs, police harassment, education but most of all the issues that go deep that the black community knows very well! This Black Lightning show was like a surprise out of the box to have a black superhero that was needed to show. Now I need to say that, if you supported Black Panther, show that same support for Black Lightning.

Black Winter Olympians: The 2018 Winter Games have ended. But the names of John Crawford, Maame Hiney, Lauren Gibbs, Hakeem Abdul-Saboor, Shannon Ogbani Abeda, the Nigerian Bobsled Team, Chris Kinney, Aja Evans, Awkasi Frimpong, Erin Jackson, Kimani Griffin, Elana Meyers-Taylor, Shani Davis and Sabrina Wanjiku Simander will be remembered in making their debut as first timers and also those whom have been there and done it. John Crawford was the first African-American Male to compete for Team USA’s Hockey team (a MAJOR FIRST by the way). Plus also out of this group of Black Olympians, only two walked away with medals: Elana and Lauren won Silver for the Bobsled team. And also, even though she didn’t win, Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian of the Jamaica Bobsled Team commented that the Winter Sports needs more diversity especially when it comes in the response of black children to see a reflection of themselves!

Speaking of that: I want to see more black folks compete in sports that most don’t even touch: We know hockey. But what about Curling? Yes! CURLING. The same Curling team that won Gold and also it’s the same Curling that got The Simpsons talking when Homer and Marge beat Sweden. Oh, it actually happened in real life in South Korea. Also, Speedskating, besides Shani Davis, Maame Hiney and Erin Jackson, who else from the black community that can speedskate? And train here in Milwaukee at the Petitt Center? I know about #BlackGirlMagic and #BlackBoyJoy but let’s see that here also!

In Milwaukee: even though he went to school here, but John Ridley, our own local grown filmmaker that won big at the Oscars for 12 Years A Slave, established a new ground at the The Brewery Complex (formally the Pabst Brewery Area) along with Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, has opened “No Studios”. What does that mean?

No Studios, will be a new hub for the community that will provide those in the arts. According to the website:

No Studios will include long-term and short-term office space for local individuals, organizations, and companies in creative fields, a screening room, food and beverage, gallery space, as well as a rooftop event space with expansive city views. The design of the space will be comfortable, open, modern, and inviting, encouraging collaboration among tenants and welcoming diverse communities across the city to celebrate art together.

In addition to serving as a physical space for the creative community and art lovers in Milwaukee, No Studios will present year-round programming that will both provide an opportunity for local artists to present their work and bring in renowned artisans working in a variety of creative fields from around the world to share their knowledge with Milwaukee audiences.

This is coming from our own! A chance for future artists to shine in a opportunity from the ground up and showcasing talent. Many folks thought that, Milwaukee: really? They don’t support their local talent. But with this might be a change. I don’t know about the mindset, but that has to change. Literally. No Studios had a short video promo, that some of the shows and movies like Redtails and American Crime had some Milwaukee related references. And that came from John Ridley. That is a nod from him to give his hometown some love. So I hope that this No Studios might the hub that can spur up new ideas to give future artists a gain to attract and showcase yet again, homegrown talent. And No Studios begins this fall.

More highlights that I think stood out in Black History Month 2018:

I would say the MAJOR highlight of Black History Month 2018, is where it started. Inside the office of Dr. Carter Woodson. His office, where the thoughts, ideas, creativity, purpose and goals of a occasion, started in his DC Office. And for the first time ever the office was open to the public for visitations. I believe like the National African American Museum and Culture, the office of Dr. Woodson should be able to attract visitors alike to learn in depth about the man that started to talk about US and our history in the relation to Black History Month. No it’s not just about being black, its also what we can do and had done despite of us being black.

The office (according to the summaries) have articles, books, letters, documents and other material of value that is predominately sampled or summarized even today. Even the office has some of the letters going back to Frederick Douglass’ days years before the start of Negro History Week, also a book is published in the same year that the occasion got started. Even with book articles, a coloring section for kids. Yes! Dr. Woodson wanted to engage that with young folks in the summary of the occasion to learn about the culture and also a sense of history.

In conclusion: here it is that yes we are again to supposed to learn about Black History everyday. HOWEVER: I have said this before and I’ll say it again, many of us in the black community I hate to say this, but we don’t acknowledge our history at times because we tend to FORGET! We keep saying, “we need to teach our children more” but adults we need to remember that “iron sharpens iron.” What that means in this is, in order for our children to learn about black history, and summarize it to the fullest, we need to do our job! Let me remind us so-called grown folks that we’re getting old. Period. Nothing we can do about it. And yes we complain about the teachings in schools, but many of us forget that we have to continue that teaching AT HOME! In the community centers, and yes whether you like it or not, the church! I was raised by a Milwaukee Public Schools teacher that taught in the classroom for over 3 decades and the thing is, my mother still educates me at 41 years old about Black History. And she’s 71 and retired. I had former and current church members whom were teachers and gone through the same thing. So I’m getting my balance on Black History. Then this hit me: I said this before and I’ll say it again: I do celebrate Black History Month. In February. And I also acknowledge the summaries and figures everyday. So I keep it in the middle. Not on the left or right. And for my “Black History is American History” commenters: It’s not just American History! Stop saying that. What about the Black Canadians, Black British, Black French, Black Irish, Black Australians, Black Indians, Black Italians, Haitians, Jamaicans, Black Hispanics, Black Mexicans and other African Decent of nations besides American? They have a black history story to tell also! We better get with the program. And yes, black kings and queens, that means us too! If we want to do better for our selves, we need to recognize our history as means to learn it and move forward. Many of us think we know it all. But like I always say, where there’s one thing, there’s something else. And that is everyday.  Also to those who think that studying Black History is racist and not American in a sense of Black Americans: think again!

In the words of Angela Rye, “We Built This Joint For Free!”

My highlights of the year

And as usual: I want to put on my 2016 moments. I feel a need to say this because I’m hoping to have a year of better opportunities. 2016 was a year of milestones for me in this order:

20- the amount of years that I am my Church’s techie. I started out running the church sound system in 1996, and worked up to taking photos, and social media. The proper name is Commutations Chairperson and I was awarded an appreciation award for what I still do!

10 – the amount of years that I celebrated as an alumnus of the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Plus serving as a Election Inspector for the City of Milwaukee. All since 2006.

5 – the half milestone that I served as a board member for the John Marshall High School Alumni Association. Since 2011.

And yes, I turned 40 on December 5th.

In addition: I was the Official Photographer for the 46th NCJ-BMCR Jurisdiction Meeting in Milwaukee. And had networking implications of course.

Plus adding on another board title for a scholarship committee here in Milwaukee.

Sidenote: Oh I didn’t noticed this but, I appreciate the 20,275 views on my blog. This is great, BUT: the “same old reading stuff” bubbles must be busted in 2017!  I will find a way to do it, or maybe not. We’ll see.


Here it is: the final week and days of “The centerpiece” of Black History Month 2016. But certainly it won’t be the last of Black History Month, or Black History. Ever.

For many days, yes we have reviewed the highs and lows of our historical perspectives, figures and events. Yes, black folks, we’ll continue to reference our history stuff everyday like many said.

But as a CALLOUT: I have significant warning here, not many of us will acknowledge our history of black stuff.

Like last year, I don’t really acknowledge the “National African-American History Month” name.  I keep it straight original about “Black History Month” always! And also, I don’t really acknowledge the “Black Future Month” or “New Black History” things in the BHM. I guess I’m a old school guy that has to me reminded of the ancestors things that got us here in the first place.

Like last year, I need to really ask this: How many of us will actually reference black history everyday? And the keyword is “ACTUALLY”. I hate to say this but to us Black Folks who might get mad at this blog, we will not again fully acknowledge our history everyday. We won’t! Unless if there is a new way of doing it. Yeah, we might have those Black 365 Calendars at home or work where black references are shown everyday, but chances are, we are not going to see them everyday! Why? We might miss them by not referencing each time. Look at our finances, look at our Social Media stats, look at the next line to get the new Air Jordans (which already happened recently at a store near you) dating, some protest downtown, or to see what is up with the soaps that feature some black characters acting a fool of impression to feel that sensitive side creeping up. Here is a rhetorical question, are we still going to learn about our historical figures everyday?! YES or NO?

Now this year, there have been some firsts in black history. Yes, I’m still saying first because I want to see the next line folks getting their stuff.

For this year of the #BHM of 2016:

First: Stacey Dash is a loser. Yeah I said it. She talked about we shouldn’t celebrate a Black History Month and we’re Americans in all. SPOILER ALERT: Black History Month is not cancelled again. We refreshed to learn about ourselves as black folks from the trials, the sacrifices and also the accomplishments. We also learned that there were the “black nobodys” whom were hunged, lynched or burned all because they were black! Hate all you want non-black folks, but that was one of our dark periods. Yes, we reflected on the MLK’s the Rosa Parks, those whom were Unsung and nameless. We have that right and the privilege to learn about our culture just as all of you non-blacks have the rights to talk about the immigrants that came over on boats to Ellis Island and others.

Second on the menu: After what Stacey Dash said on Fox News, the Because Of Them We Can Campaign stepped up and had some of the kids telling us and reminding us of why the occasion has been up all this time. And yes, the kids know that Black History Month didn’t begin with slavery! We need to get the language right! And they did a good job at it. If this can actually continue, can it be a sample of those that can actually do this with our black children?

Third on the menu: Blackish. If those whom doubt that Blackish is some Black show that don’t get gritty about black issues on the conscious level, stop sleeping! The most recent episode that was on TV was called “Hope”. If you haven’t seen the episode, you need to watch it. Especially those who feel that all blacks are the same speech. As a summary of the rundown, the episode  itself starts out in the home. Seeing young Dre as a child as being told to turn off the TV by Pops (Laurence Fishburne) while a certain event that shouldn’t be seeing by kids. Or asking the questions of who was this person or that person, and having the parents with books or a Walkman on stand by.  Many of us had our parents making us to go to our rooms when a subject concerning violence or hatred happens in a conversation.

We know this, do we?

However in the show, the family watches the CNN coverage. And yet the family still asks questions and gets concerned. Mainly with young Jack and Diane. Also, the scene shifts to Dre and Bow, in which she begins to be concerned. Dre suggests telling the truth. And the scene gravitates towards when President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama stepped out of the Limo and waving to the crowd. Even shaking hands. I’ll bet that got many concerned about them being wasted in a violent manner when they did that gesture. However as we know, that never happened. Later on, the older kids of Junior and Zoey were talking about the protest. Junior was all for going to the activity, but Zoey was starting to feel worried about the well being of her brother. He didn’t go alone by the way. Towards the end, the family still learned that even though things of protests, and keeping things shut off, they have managed and learned about the legality of telling the truth of the reasons to face the world of concerns. Overall this was a powerful episode. Even with the words Black Owned spray painted on the garage by Ruby!

Fourth on the Menu: I kept saying in the last few years, that Black History is not just American History. It’s now part of World History. For our Canadian Black Neighbors, they like last year are referencing their Black Accomplishments and figures. But the one thing stood out the most, was this courtesy of Canada’s Huffington Post story of Honoring their Black Historical Figures and Events. Click on the author’s Twitter pic link. Man, listen: This was so cool! Toronto’s landmark CN Tower was lit in the Red, Black and Green! That was off the chain!

I have a question though: Can America do this? Having some or all of the landmarks convert to the Red, the Black, the Green for one day! Or some of the Black Landmarks to the African colors in honor of Black History Month? Milwaukee, you better read this if you like LED Lights on display! For Toronto and the rest of Canada, this marks 20 years since they started Celebrating Black History Month in 1996. So guess what Americans, Black History Month is not just All-American History. It’s a staple of World History. Get it straight! But big ups to the Black Canadians for this. And like last year, keep telling your black stories! No matter what. No matter anyone tells you. Still share your black stories, refresh them everytime, and yes like us Americans we need to keep telling the kids about the reasons why the occasion of Black History Month, exists. Not African-American History or African-Canadian History or Afro-British History or Afro-Anything History. I still stay BLACK HISTORY MONTH due to the global scale!

This just in: Channing Dungey was named the new President of ABC Entertainment. A first for Black History.

Now again, there are those who might say: “Stephen, this Black History Month thing, that’s racist”. It’s not. You non-black folks tell your stories ALL THE TIME! And not once that any black person has stopped you from telling your experiences coming up. Even about various occasions of immigrants moved to America and worked very hard, and etc. We hear them all the time! But my folks were born here and ancestors were African related were shackled, branded, ripped apart, forced to learn new names and languages and still, being called the N-words no matter what we try to achieve for us! And that includes Degrees, Certificates, First Employee or Employees of Color doing this and that. Opening doors for greatness. And many, many, many objectives and purposes that Blacks have and are currently doing in all aspects. Even STILL rising up from the ashes of misguidedness! However again, there are those who feel that it’s racist, that it’s just separating the human race, and many other concerns. Even being “negropeanized”. Um, NO! And speaking of the “human race,” MESSAGE:  it was black folks that started the human race. We were the first of human civilization, of science, math, astronomy and others. African-Americans have been in wars of the U.S. more times in history, even making you dance, or play, or sing, all kinds of MUSIC! Even fashion. Making news in journalism, technology, political statements, activism, evangelism and many MANY MANY others! Black folks, we need to keep the reminders! Hit the refresh buttons. No validations necessary. Even though that the 90th Anniversary of Black History Month of 2016 is concluding, yes our references we seek and learn everyday still lingers! So no, the trials and tribulations will not be forgotten!

Everytime I pass by the old A.O. Smith building here in Milwaukee, I am reminded by of my grandfathers, Robert Burton Sr, whom was the first black welder in the City of Milwaukee. This was in an era when black folks were coming up to the north for jobs, and better opportunities to raise families, etc. The Milwaukee Urban League at the time was a link for him to get that job and get employed. (Wish still could be a factor today without the previous attacking at me from 2004) And still even though it’s becoming Century City Business Park, I am STILL REMINDED about the place and time that it was creating jobs in that area that wasn’t always the ghetto!

One of my late uncles, worked for Pfister and Vogel Tannery for nearly 20+ years. And was the first African-American Male to head one of their departments ever. Not making this up.

Plus also, this is for my Black UMC’s in the building. Us black folks know the full story of BMCR and the reasons for it. Now I’ve heard this in church though my former pastors that the first person that John Wesley anointed into Methodism, was black. And this was during the American Revolution when America was fighting for it’s freedom against the tyranny of Great Britain and King George. Even you non-church goers need to understand that.

Furthermore in this #BHM2016: The rise of Afro-Latinos.

Yes, for my Afro-Latino folks, you’ve been in the house. And there is no reason to be left out. Even though that this occasion is for all black folks, this does include you. I read about the success stories of Celia Cruz, Marcus Garvey, Roberto Clemente, Marta Moreno Vega, Arturo Shcomberg, Gina Torres, and even Soledad O’Brien (whom have some black in her). And many other Black Latino men and women that have made fabulous successes. Even those of Tatiyana Ali, and Charles Rangel. I am drawing this from the article via The Grio called “Taking Black History Month to the next level: Why Pan-African history is important” Plus Facebook. They also features, Juliana Pache, who is behind the hashtag of #blacklatinxhistory. This also reminds me of the stories my mother told me about some of the latin folks whom didn’t admit of having some of the African in them, but knowing there are latin folks that do have black in them. Part of that is in the history and should be acknowledged. The same with the Black Samoans, we know one and he’s “the people champ”. And I’ll go even further with Native Americans. Yes, remember those jokes about having Indian in your family, well some of that can be further with the truth. Research! I think it’s time for another DVD to come out with HBO in regarding the The Black List! Just to think that rocker Slash from Guns N’ Roses was in the series, and is part black.

Now usually I don’t agree with the #BlackFutureMonth mentality. But I’ll digress here. For you future kings and queens of the black community: I see you!!!! Even some of you read my blogs with your grown ups, but I see your talents. I see your young talents shine in dance, music, sports, technology, and most of all: education! When you grow up, do all you can to make the world a good place to live. But before you get to those big jobs in the future, and higher education of colleges, make SURE you listen to your parents (even though they might be strict at times), your teachers who might stay on your homework alot. Don’t try to get an attitude all the time, stay grounded with your books, keep dreaming and reach for your goals,  and most of all, don’t quit/dropout, and this for mostly the black boys: STAY OUT OF TROUBLE! PLEASE! If you find yourself in trouble, don’t do it on your own. Get help to get out, and stay out! And always acknowledge those who came before you. Without the past, NO FUTURE of anything!

And a final note: this is the last Black History Month Celebration concerning the First Family. Yes, it’s Obama’s last BHM as President. But guess what, his name should be in the books forever with Black History anyway. Now the “yahoos” will try to erase what this man has done during his White House rule, understand this: even though he’s been slighted in all, WE (and you haters of Obama will admit) will miss him when he’s gone!

Here is a pre-Leap Day Bonus: Formation:

Oh, I thought I was done. The talk about Beyonce’s Halftime Show at the SuperBowl and her without warning video was one of the highted spotlights of the month! No one saw it coming like SNL’s Skit of “The Day That Beyonce Turned Black.” And if you’re one of those who felt scared or that DUMB that Beyonce was about to join the Black Panther Party, HOW STUPID YOU WERE! Let’s see, The Black Panthers were in effect until 1982, Beyonce was just about a tyke when she was first born! So there was no way that she was “born” as a Black Panther! Of all those who got their undies in a bunch, it’s all those who claim that Blue Lives Matter were effected. Those who claim that with some law enforcement shootings or killings, they have to claim that Beyonce that was so responsible and had to apologize for her  well doing in this. For all those hyper sensitive per se fans of the Law Enforcement Community: Beyonce does not have to say sorry for what she did in the video. OH NO! Part of what Beyonce displayed in a sense of Formation, was partially doing this: “TELLING THE TRUTH!” For those who linked Sheriff David Clarke about his Beyonce commentary must be on the fritz! This is the same David Clarke that said that there is no Police Brutality in America. How so wrong he is! Dumb! Just admit Law Enforcement Community (aka Blue Lives Matter Fans) you’re just mad because that thing called the TRUTH and you can’t take the cake! Eat the freaking cake, yo! Get humbled. And this goes for those who think the word Formation is a bad word. So says the Google.

In addition, Kendrick Lamar once again woke up everyone. This time with the Grammys. Go back and research!

Here is a Mini #BHM2016 Callout: Chris Rock hosted the 88th Academy Awards, and for the first 20 minutes of the show, yes he went like “Bring the Pain” of 1996. Did he not? Or did he sold out as those probably claimed? Read the whole thing please.

This concludes my “Annual Review” of Black History Month 2016. But not of Black History overall. Besides, Black History Month Part II is coming in June, and a Black History Month Part III in July about Black Families is coming also. So get ready once more!

For all the activists whom had or have this thing against the churches: HAVE ANY OF YOU EVER said what was on your mind IN the worship services? Instead about what you really said on Facebook?

Star Wars this year has two African related actors: John Gboyega (or Boyega) and we all know Lupita Nyong’o. But seriously for all you Star Wars fans whom are not of the black race: WHY THE HATE against John Boyega? Did ya’ll hated on Billy Dee Williams way back when?

Milwaukee had  the homicide numbers of 140+ this year. What was the real motive behind those killings? And don’t say, #BlackLivesMatter on this one!

Like for example, “You’re It!” Not “Your it”. Or “If you don’t follow me on so and so, you’re not welcome here no more. Not “If you don’t follow me on so and so your not welcome here no more.” We need to respell and check our words, folks!

Can the Consumer Drones, or Parrot Drones, or Radio Shack drones, or DJI Drones be good money makers for jobs? Be ready here!

Same as last year and the year before: Why can’t folks can’t be real with folks who are real? – church, the jobs, activism in a sense, music, economic status, sex, the single life, etc?

Speaking of drones, why folks had to be all scared about those being filmed? Here is what I know, whenever you walk near a building or in a store, or a well known corner, you will be on camera. And cameras are everywhere. So what’s the fuss?

Will any of the drone users register their drones to the FAA?

And………Will 2016 be that year for you to make it?

Preface: As we all know, the year of the GOAT, (aka the year of 2015) will be in the barnyards and rest for the archives. More like out the pasture. But before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve and making a box empty for 2016, I have once again decided to bring out the good, bad, ugly and the scratching my head thing for this year that has gone down. 2015 had a lot galloping like a Goat on hills so many times around the track, but like every other year, it had it’s ups and downs. So with that being said in all, this is the list of 2015 that I think stood out. Was 2015 the G.O.A.T?

Packers: Aaron Rodgers had a fair year banner year with the Packers along with Eddie Lacy, Randall Cobb. They had to play without Jordy Nelson due to a surprise IR injury. But went out and got James Jones back to try to fill in the void. Plus Aaron Rodgers was the league MVP.

For the season that was in a highlighted sense:

Bears- Snapped a 3 year start losing streak.
Seattle- needed that W.
49ers-a decent vengeful W
Chiefs – decent W

Rams -decent win

The stand outs: Joel Stave, Dare Ogunbolwale, Derek Watt, Joe Schobert, Vince Beigel, Corey Clement, Sojourn Shelton, Robert Wheelwright, Alex Ericsson, Chris Orr, Mike Caputo, and Jazz Peavy.

The Mayfair Collection (part of Mayfair Mall)  near US 45 is nice again with Dick’s Sporting Goods, Old Navy, Nordstrom, and oh I should point out: a bakery. Plus Osgoods is open! Not only that, Pizza Man.

 

The Bad:

Racism struck again in 2015.

ISIS. Again.

Like 2014, 2015 also was a high year of one of the worst stories to write and comment: Killing unarmed black men, while white police officers who did the job go free, EVEN after chokes being recorded on video. Unarmed black women were targets also.

School/College Shootings in America that were in places that was not mentioned alot did occur.

Even though the Dow was getting high in 2015, the number of African-Americans unemployment remained high as well. And there were other factors.

The ending results of the murders of Sandra Bland and Tamir Rice: not guilty from the cops.

The SAE fraternity in Oklahoma City was declared out due to N*gger word chants.

In South Carolina: A black teen in a Classroom got slammed to the ground by a Police Officer that we all saw on video.

A Pool Party in Texas was interrupted by the McKinnley Police Department. Racially Motivated.

Paris was hit twice due to terrorism.

Mali and Kenya were also attacked.

In Ferguson, Missouri: another shooting death of an child sparked outrage. And a partial but not effective blame on the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Baltimore was under siege with violence due to the protest of Freddie Gray’s death by the Baltimore Police Department.

9 members of the Emanuel AME Church were gunned down during a bible study meeting by Dylan Roof in Charleston, SC.

Flooding in South Carolina.

 

 

And the bad side of things in Wisconsin: 

Burger King in Wauwatosa  and some Educator Credit Union ATMs got hacked.

Polarized politics in 2015 deepens worse in the state.

A freeway shooting on December 9th on I-43. No kidding.

Racism and segregation still lingered.

Isiah Taylor, son of Wisconsin State Senator Lena Taylor, was detained in December of all things……delivering a turkey to a needy family. RIDICULOUS!

THIS JUST IN: HOT 102 Online got a notice of being cancelled. NOOOOOO!!!!!! I grew up with the station. Man!

Unemployment maybe down in Wisconsin, but still up in the Black Milwaukee Area.

As far as the Dontre Hamilton saga: no further sentencing of former MPD officer Christopher Manney.

Kmart in Wauwatosa and Office Depot in Milwaukee’s Midtown Center – Rest in peace.

Plus, African World Festival was canceled YET again.

Dustin Diamond, (aka Screech) gets his serving papers in Wisconsin.

 

Who did I listen to in 2015? (Hint, no whack rappers, no Bieber mess, or boy bands):

Kendrick Lamar – This dude woke up everybody again in 2015! King Kunta and We Gonna Be Alright!

Faith Evans -20. or Her 20th Anniversary Album

Jody Watley – yes Jody Watley! (and Dancer Remixed is on my playlist!)

Adele – Hello

Chic f/Nile Rodgers – I’ll Be There/Back In the Old School

Missy Elliott -WTF

Jodeci – (YES, JODECI MADE A COMEBACK THIS YEAR) Every Moment, Checking for you

Jidenna – Classic Man

Monica – Just Right For Me

Alabama Shakes – Don’t Wanna Fight

 

 

The Ugly:

Fox News and the right wing media needs to shut up about Loretta Lynch. Let her do her job. Plus also those like Stacey Dash and the other guy whats his name, needs to be fired than suspended of the Obama Remarks!

Trying to forget the name Kim Davis, whom made a name of not issuing marriage licenses to Kentucky residents because they were LGBT Material. But Kim did have skeletons in her closest though!

Donald Trump is still talking. Even though his commentary might be troublesome for 2016.

Bill Cosby: Again,  Bill Cosby has been under the gun with this whole scandal. And even folks like Janice Dickerson and Beverly Johnson all calling him out. Cosby was also stripped more of his honorary degrees including one from Marquette University. Now , Bill Cosby has stepped up to defend himself and to sue those whom have defaced his name, reputation, etc. Plus there was a warrant of his arrest in which was dated back to 2004. Cosby was bailed out by 1 Million Dollars and this case is to be continued in 2016.

Hulk Hogan: For many, many years, the Hulkster has electrified fans all over the world. Even as an ambassador and a well known public figure in the eyes of the fans of Professional Wrestling and Entertainment. HOWEVER: this year, Hulk Hogan was fired from the WWE due to some off-color racist commentary in regarding the angle with his daughter Brooke years back. That also began a backlash against the man who wanted his younger fans to Train, Eat their Vitamins, Say their Prayers, Believe in themselves, etc.

CALLOUT OF ALL FOLKS – Next time: Can folks who have no experience step outside and let the REAL vets take over?! Seen that a lot this year.

 

Ugly things that the Badger Residents faced:

145: The amount of homicides that Milwaukee had in 2015. 25 Years ago, the homicide rate was up at 160 at the end of 1990.

Sheriff David Clarke: Oh I got something to comment. He had the Gaul to go onto Fox News and had the nerve to say that Police Brutality ended back in the 60’s. And on top of that he got grilled by a black network host, Roland Martin!

MCTS had a Ugly moment in which there was a bus strike during a portion of the summer.

7,310: the amount of stolen cars in Milwaukee.

The Milwaukee Lion. Seriously we were duped in the city. More like bamboozled.

Like last year:  We had a cease fire weekend back in the spring, and more shots rang out. From 1 year olds, to 5 year olds, to preteens teens, and to grown folks. No fun!

Governor Scott Walker has been named the worst person in America this year. RIGHTFULLY SO! And even he commented that Wisconsin’s problem of jobs is lack of trained workers. Still laughing at that statement as well as his failure for not running for President.

Milwaukee Salvation Army Kettle Volunteers were robbed at gunpoint. SERIOUSLY UGLY!

Speaking of ugly: I like the Green Bay Packers. But the loss score of 38-8 by Arizona is what it is: Ugly loss. And this thought of Aaron Rodgers playing scared is preposterous.

Another Ugly: Robbing kids of those hoverboards. Yes, this is aimed at Milwaukee’s rough neighborhoods.

Scratching my head this whole time:

Question again: Have these  Negropeans ever got it yet of they shouldn’t being ashamed to be black? – Reference with all respect AGAIN: Raven-Symone.

Caitlyn Jenner. For real?

Was the BET Awards that serious this year?

How is Kanye West really gonna run for President in 2020?

About that dress though. Really?

REPOST: When employers have said about “we can’t find anyone.” in relation to new applicants on the map, have they actually looked hard enough? Or they are just being lazy?

Hold Up: This dabbing thing though. REALLY?!

For the Robin Jeans fans out there: Um, what is the real deal with those pants?

Question again: Should there be a rule when folks who were homegrown born in all, made good money elsewhere, and then when trying to comeback to their homecity with promotions or events (nothing wrong with that), SHOULD THEY NOT get an attitude of making folks to come out? I don’t care if you’re a Milwaukee born person, went to the south and made good money and comeback home to force folks to come out and support a cause not worth knowing. There are folks HERE in Milwaukee that are on the grind everyday that are trying to be the best possible to help out. Now you know why it is? Watch yourselves, promoters!

Attention-Note to the “fair weather folks” in all YET AGAIN: Many leave cold places due to weather and rant and complain. But doesn’t that equate those hating the hot places go to cold places?

Why is the GOP reps in Congress was wasting their time in repealing the ACA?

What was that hate about a Horse that didn’t get picked, but a deserving Serena Williams got picked for Sportsman of the Year?

Why are certain online radio stations are getting shafted with all these fees, and copyright stuff? (I.E. Live365, Hot102 Online)

Has the hype of Ronda Rousey ever slowed down after her first loss from Holly Holm?

What was the so-called hype about Iggy Azalea and Erykah Badu beef?

I know some Sports Folks had to ask about Olivia Munn and the slump that Aaron Rodgers went through. Wait a second,  do they realize who is Olivia Munn is?!!!!

Will Ride Along 2 and Barbershop: The Next Cut be a hit in 2016?

Still asking this question: with all the “crimes” in the cities, what’s up with the drug problems in the suburbs?!!!

MASSIVE SOCIAL MEDIA CALLOUT AGAIN: Can we PLEASE use the “You’re” word on Facebook correctly as well as other forms of Social Media? Like for example, “You’re It!” Not “Your it”. Or “If you don’t follow me on so and so, you’re not welcome here no more. Not “If you don’t follow me on so and so your not welcome here no more.” We need to respell and check our words, folks! 

Again: Can Facebook users please be polite and to kindly ask not to be so rude when game requests happen? (No need to be all dramatic and serious. It’s not a threat or an act of war!)

How will us Americans alike be with President Obama in his “Really Last Quarter” in 2016?

Will any of us Americans stop denying prayer so much?

Speaking of President Obama again: when the issue of race comes up and many of us black folks feels that it’s killing us. So I ask: What do we want him to say?!!!!!

Here is a response: President Obama gets Black Lives Matter. The true reason. Do any others?

Still asking: Are the protests of unarmed black men and unarmed black women being killed are getting attention in the cities nationwide, as well as worldwide yet again? #HandsUpDontShoot #BlackLivesMatter #ICantBreathe

SHOUTOUT CALLOUT: For all my Sagittarius folks: was this year of the horse played the cards well, since part of our zodiac is a Centaur? And will 2016 be THAT YEAR for us to fling our Bows and Arrows?

For you Skeptical Social Media folks and Conscious Minded: When folks had to dig up about certain challenges, or activities, and they tie that into slavery or bad incidents in black culture, even self proclaimed Pagan related stuff: WHERE ON EARTH IS THE MAIN SOURCE THAT YOU GO TO?!!

REPOST: For those of us who go to Walmart in Milwaukee, what is up with the bootlegging folks? (All I hear: We got CD’s and Movies!)  Nobody has no time buying something that has your digital camcorder or computer virus on it!

Knowing 2016 is an election year, can we African-Americans ever have a massive Mid-Term/Local Voter Turnout like the Presidential ones?

Was the movie Concussion really THAT controversial?!!!!!

When folks comment about “being apart of the human race”, have they realized that it was black folks that started the human race, per say? Had to ask that again.

Has those who accused President Obama of everything like unarmed black folks getting killed had realized that he is not at fault?

Has the State of Wisconsin really made a  serious error about NOT bringing the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino to Kenosha? Like the high speed rail?

AGAIN: We all know that #AllLivesMatter, and #PoliceLivesMatter but why folks got to be against #BlackLivesMatter in a sense of being twisted and racist, which is not?

For you Black GOP Fans out there: Is Ben Carson really “Truthful and Honest” to be President?

Why were and are certain folks had to STILL  “redline” job seeking folks because of their address on their resumes?

You know 2016 is a leap year, right?

Why can’t we have our Grad Tassels tied to our rear view mirrors, knowingly it’s somewhat might get you a ticket?

Will body cameras be an assist to the Police when crimes happen in 2016?

Did the Milwaukee Coalition of Justice really overstep their boundary of interrupting the Lincoln Center Arts Middle School Choir?

Since when Hoverboards and those in the ministry like Pastors come into play?

ATTENTION NPHC MEMBERS: With all due respect to the colors and letters you wear with your goals and objectives, can you guys lay off the Iotas? I ask this with love!

Can the Consumer Drones, or Parrot Drones, or Radio Shack drones, or DJI Drones or any drones be good money makers for jobs in 2016?

Has The TSU Social Universe been a force again for Social Media? In terms of paying the user of postings, etc?

Same as last year: Why can’t folks can’t be real with folks who are real? – church, the jobs, economic status, sex, etc?

And………Will 2016 be the “that year?”

 My own highlights of the year.

For this portion, 2015 was not too shabby this year for me. Outside of me blogging and fronting,  and in addition to my community stuff,  I now own a drone, that makes me a legal eagle to be a registered user. Also 2015 marked 10 years of me blogging. Yep 10 years and it’s only the beginning.

For those who have read this blog like over 10,000 times with Tumblr – and the repeated blogs that many of you had to read again, Thank you!

For those who have read this blog for support (I.E. The Milwaukee Streetcar), Thanks.

Some of the folks I know that died in the year:

First, I want to highlight, Nellie Kendrick.

She used to have a saying:

“If I can help somebody, then my life will be worth living!” – See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/jsonline/obituary.aspx?pid=174375585#sthash.47cjPgn3.dpuf

Y’all don’t know her. Nellie a former church member of mine who gave tirelessly in the city. She was a former worker of Blue Cross Blue Shield whom like many back then worked her way up. She also worked as a manger and inspired those to be mangers during her tenure. Nellie was a sorority sister. A real sorority sister of the organization: Eta Kappa Theta.

She and her husband George whom I also know from church were married for 45 years, since the 24th Day of June of 1970. Nellie wasn’t just a member that I knew, she was more than that. She was one of the first black women who on the fore-front and an inspiration to give back. I hope that the women of TODAY can learn from what she did and to take into appreciation of their craft and hard work. Nellie passed this year in February at 81, and she was honor from those of the city, county, state, her chruch homes, former colleagues and many who have known her. And the lasting words from her euolgy, “What legacy will you leave behind?”

Second, I have to highlight two key members of my church: Cleadoretta Keys and Charles Lee Patterson.  For Clea, she was a real person. Make that a real Black Queen! Even though at time she appeared to be strict at times. But her heart was in the right place. She was a former school teacher of Milwaukee Public Schools when MPS had real teachers! A devoted church member who like many was active with the United Methodist Women. And was very vocal about the structure and well being of the church during her tenure. She also was one the reasons why I say this statement: “Hey Black, Child!” For that she wanted us to learn about our black culture and not to be ashamed to be black period! Mrs. Keys was a real woman of God, and a Black Queen that will be missed. She passed this year in June at 82 years of age.

For Charles Lee Patterson, or Mr. Patterson as I respected. He was a mans man. Let me say that again not to hate on the guys reading this blog, he was a man’s man. Mr. Patterson was very active in the church. Married for 56 years. Father of six. Grandfather, relative, friend and Godfather. Mostly as a Trustee. Very Active with the United Methodist Men, and also supportive of the then-church’s weekly activities of the Helping Place. Even part of our Men’s Choir. Mr. Patterson was a Korean War Veteran, whom served 3.5 years in the US Army. Later on, he was employed by the USPS for 35 years as a mail handler. I often have love for my Alumni in which I stay active the most part. I kind of drew that from him since he was a charter member of his Mississippi Valley State University Alumni. He often complement my work as a secretary, my talent of music and most of all, gave me some props of my seasonal decorations! The one last thing before his passing, he was part of the Honor Flight to Washington DC in which it was for the Veterans of WWII and the Korean War era. His passing was in July of this year at 83, but many turned out for the Homegoing and Committal as a way of sorrow, grief, and most of all, love.  His spirit of support still lives on!

In closing: 2015 was one of those years that we walked through pain, fire and brimstone like the years past. But there were along the way, there were positives, and great stuff that happened.

I ask again: Will 2016 be no “monkeying around” for the greater good? We shall see!

 


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,400 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 57 trips to carry that many people.

Thanks for another year of reading. We’re just getting started again for 2016.

It’s about that time again. Many of us Americans will be sitting around the TV with the games on (Go Packers!), folks will be finishing up with the cooking, and relatives and guests will come over for the food. Also phone calls, emails, and I think social media postings will pop up  with all the cooked food, and preps. No matter what happens on Thanksgiving yes, many will take the time to be thankful. Oh yeah, I started this blog thing portion on those old My Fox Milwaukee Blogs way back when, as many knows. Here on Stephen’s Spot, it doesn’t stop. By the way, this is one of my traditional blog posts I do each year.  So with this, it’s time to keep it simple to be thankful. Or just hashtag this: #BeThankful2015

If you have a church home, be thankful.

If you took in a movie with someone, or alone, be thankful you saw a movie.

If you still attend church every week, plus the days of choir rehearsal, giving needs, or bible study; while many condemn it as those who are about the money or the bishop or minister being called pulpit pimps, or the members being hypocritical of darn near everything, or “sister so and so” comes out with the dress on , or “brother man always in the back” doing God knows what, but you still do God’s work no matter what, and you stay around to help build up the church for the SOLE purpose of it: yes you need to Be Thankful!

If you voted or will vote in 2016 and in all Elections: Be Thankful.

If you like what I write here and one of the 16,000+ views that clicked on here and Tumblr, be thankful.

If you have a loved one that passed this year and it’s a different feeling of emptiness, and you’re at a point that it may not be a well oiled Thanksgiving Holiday, but it a point comes along and something new gets better and better for the survivors of the Family, yes you can “Be Thankful” for all of the memories that were, and the new memories to be.

Not a @LAClippers fan, but yet they might respond from all this stuff from their owner playing their game.
Golden State is out with the guns blazing. Literally, I dont blame them.
I’ll bet the @LAClippers owner was probably looking at this game and saying what have I done? Litetally. And the struggle continues.
Sometimes “words” as we know, have an effect. Either positive and negative. #ijs
Dang, Black Talk Radio in Milwaukee today was serious! Straight up. @TheForum860  and The Polly Williams Show was no joke.
Looking at @WWE #RAW

For those live in the #Milwaukee 15th district, you have a choice: Biddle or Stamper. #getoutandvote #noexcuses
BREAKING NEWS: Sterling is banned for life. And that’s coming from Adam Silver. #NBA
And the 2.5 mil fine will help those the most. #NBA @LAClippers
Back then, Sterling survived two cases against him and the NBA didn’t chase them. That streak is done. New rules are coming!
I hope the lifetime ban thing should tell everyone, even you are a chairman or a CEO, or a seasoned worker. If you cross the line, Goodbye!
Kevin Johnson: “Sports have played a role in Civil Rights.” Always have. #NBA
Kevin Johnson: “We have a Black president & the action was swift, “but hatred & bigotry is far from over.” #NBA
Kevin Johnson:  “I hope every bigot recognizes…that if he can fall, so can you.”  (and that means no shade necessary) #NBA
Also, I know I shouldn’t be saying this: but this new ruling should be advisable to the new #Bucks owners. Just a suggestion. #NBA
Not a @LAClippers fan, but this speaks one thing: http://t.co/8GU8csucTk
Ok #Milwaukee’s 15th district, you have about 2 hours to make a choice for alderman: Biddle or Stamper. #NoExcuses #GetOutAndVote #wisconsin
Good opening by the @LAClippers.
So the #Milwaukee 15th race is done. And Russell Stamper II got the W. Big ups.
Not a @LAClippers fan, but they responded.
