Everyone knows how this goes. And it’s real simple. No need to link or google or even #Hashtag. Today, many around the country and in household or other areas, we Americans will be celebrating that holiday of food called Thanksgiving. From the Parades, to the NFL Games, Dog Shows, or other new traditional ideas that will boost the food day. And yes, there will be us going out to the clubs and shaking off the pounds to get loose for Christmas.

And yes, there will be constant reminders of the horrors that our Native American brothers and sisters will not participate in this Thanksgiving Day due to the killing of their ancestors outside of a church on a Sunday morning many moons ago. Henceforth, The National Day of Mourning.

But this holiday, yes does have the two words of Be Thankful of the things and ideas we already have. So here in it’s 10th Anniversary tradition, here is another traditional Stephen’s Spot Thanksgiving Blog of “Be Thankful”. Break out the tablets, Smartphones, PC’s or laptops. Start reading!

If you are breathing right now normally: be thankful.

If many in the black community have black pride PLUS Melanin Responsibility to uplift our black people without sarcasm and forced stuff, BE THANKFUL!

Now I have to say this: If you kneeled while supported the protest of inhumane acts of people of getting brutalized by the police (as in the NFL Players) and support the idea of waving the flag: your thankfulness is valid because even though many of you supported a kneeling movement in a Colin Kaepernick way. It’s not about the Flag or against the military or veterans. It’s about the ongoing concern of black folks getting the wrong treatments.

If you are walking tall real good, be thankful.

If you condemn any racist act on the internet, social media, at your job, or in the house, or in the neighborhood, or any act of disrespect, forced patriotism, and you had to write letters of complaints to a certain company, STILL be thankful to get your voice heard!

For my Sagittarius readers: guess what? Our season is back. Are we thankful? (SAGS RULE!)

And finally: If I missed anything that many have thought about, and it’s good: we all should be and forever so thankful that we must march on. Like they say at the black funerals: It’s already been said. It’s already done.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Before us Americans get the cooking stuff out, it’s time think. Get your thinking caps on. With all the media mess going on from the flag to racism, we know food is source of healing. So is the mind preparing the food. But as always, I’m scratching my head again.

In a recent report, the Greater Milwaukee Area is not good when it comes to African-Americans. Do we know this like, already?

So the Facebook group, “The Whole Milwaukee #1” is now getting noticed. So my questions are, why are those using it for swapping drugs, beat downs and not enough for networking with our people?

Speaking of networking, does the Milwaukee MPS Alumni actually know about it’s networking events and actually go besides the Alumni Reunions?

Is Mahlon Mitchell ready for real to run for Governor in Wisconsin? And you realize that Wisconsin never had a black Governor since it’s founding?

Did the black Veterans received much love on Veterans Day? Minority Vets don’t get that much love though.

International Men’s Day came and went on November 19th. Why is this day not honored enough in the United States? Close your mouths, feminists! It’s not about you.

Hey Sagittarius folks, our season is here. Ready to sling the Arrows?

Should the month of November be also the month to spur the support of Veterans everyday?

For all those whom are so-conscious and running your mouth on social media: what is your motive for ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING?! Don’t talk about it, be about it!

Will Aaron Rodgers be stronger than ever? Just wait, Packer fans. Revenge is coming.

Why is it always a problem for men to talk about Sexual Harassment? Even if you have men in your life that went through it since childhood? This is not a joke!

Is Brett Hundley learning well? What about Joe Callahan?

Tired of reading the same ol’ stuff? Why not read something different? Hello!

If many complain about other people’s blogs, journalism, radio, TV, Online Podcastings, and others, why not start their own stuff to inform of what they want to talk about?

One of these days, I want to learn Skeet Shooting and Archery. Who is a great teacher? Where? Must be in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Lot of folks might do the Black Friday thing. If you pack Walmart or Best Buy, why not the local small stores?

I gotta ask why did those in Wisconsin think that it’s a good idea to have a gun laws signed for toddlers or those under 10 to have guns in their hands for hunting? No!

Is Foxconn the real way for jobs in Wisconsin regarding black folks who CAN’T get to the jobs? Still asking that for a friend.

Twitter: I like you. Why is your app causing problems of logging in?!

And the final question before you start cooking: has the Black Friday feeling sunk in yet, or are you staying put?

Now you may resume continue cooking your Thanksgiving Meal.


It’s been a hot minute since the scratching my head blog has been unleashed. I know it’s been a couple of weeks since my father passed and still dealing with the fact he’s gone.

But I still have something to say about the not so happy current affairs of the country and the world. So here it is.

Why do certain folks have an issue of Angela Rye’s shirt: “We built this joint for free!” Knowing it’s the truth when it concerns African Americans? 

Why do certain folks (Church Minded) have to get attacked knowing that they have to go harder every single time in and out of the four walls?

Is going after North Korea really all that? 

What’s this? Bill O’Reilly got fired from Fox News? And the station is under fire of racial discrimination of it’s black employees. Why hasn’t no one seem to realize that racism still rears its ugly head in America’s DNA? Especially at Fox News!

Stop hating on the Milwaukee Streetcar, Milwaukee. You know folks need jobs right?

Who was so glad to hear Former President Obama’s voice after all this mess of 45?

Men, when the women had Women’s History Month in March, we realize that every “Movember” is our International Men’s Month, right? Why trip?

The Republicans failed to sign away the Affordable Care Act. Why didn’t they say something to change it then 7 years ago? Oh, they were still hating on Obama.

Was Shea Moisture really that marketable to black women? 

For the Serena Williams haters worldwide: she’s beating you. Why hate her and her choice of marriage, and her soon to be child? And Black Kings(and queens): let it go.

Is anyone feeling the Milwaukee Bucks lately? #FearTheDeer #DeerRun

Yo, this Eric Thames “talk” about him doing roids or juicing is nothing but a distraction. Dude was tested three times and nothing came out bad. So what is the real problem? Where are the test results?!! We speculte too much, Americans.

Can African American Men be relaunchers for Adult Internships too? 

If moving out of Milwaukee is a solution to get away from violence, why do the suburban areas have issues of drug problems? And some violence issues too? My father once said, “it’s bad everywhere.”

In 2018: the midterms are coming. Midterm Elections. Can Wisco get rid of Scott Walker and David Clarke for real? 

Introvert folks, are we still good? 

So the State of Wisconsin has this problem of 80,000 plus jobs that need to be filled. As well as Milwaukee. And the companies all say “we need to find people.” Well what is the real problem with hiring, matching, education, training and transportation, in getting that job? 

Was the “Mother of all Bombs” really that necessary in Syria?

So the Nintendo Switch is out. Who is really waiting to see if us “grownfolks” gamers can try it? 

Milwaukee: you realize our 2nd MPS Alumni Reunion is coming in May, right? 

I need to ask this question: and it’s for those who wished reunions. Why do many get mad about a so so class reunion that tried to happen but didn’t work? Also why get mad at all class reunions? You know you can use that to generate your class reunions right?

Why is there not enough representation for African Americans when it comes to groups like The American Legion and it’s subgroups? Note: some of them might have been or are American Legion members.

Why is Wisconsin “the state so far” doesn’t do expungements?

Really Ivanka Trump? Your father is a champion when it comes to women? You know what he said to Billy Bush, right?

Question: is it a check up, or a physical? Make up your minds when going to the doctors, folks. Jeez.

Should TJ Watt be a Green Bay Packer?

In May, Military Appreciation Month is approaching. Why do we get “Veterans Day” and “Memorial Day” mixed up? 

I need to ask: why did we sent our kids back to school the DAY AFTER EASTER?! Back in my day, we started our spring break on Good Friday, then the week was nothing but a break. And the week after, it was back in the classrooms. Explain!

Do folks really believe the fake news on Social Media that folks display? 

Why do folks have to test the Bible in what the folks who want to say that the people are right and the Good Book is bad? Seriously.

If you are a single man with no kids and not married (Especially if you’re Black) why the barrage of assumptions from women who wanted them to have kids and a wife? Um….Last I checked: kids cost money! And many women today have gone “Independent”. Society does suck.

And the last question to ask: Is the truth dead? Or just opinionated? 

I’m back, folks. Get woke! Stay empowered.


It’s time to make that rant well known again.

This time, it’s about Milo (again) and two more fools that I have to pick on: Gilbert Arenas and Kyrie Irving. Sorry, it’s need to be said and said that needs to be done!

First to those whom are all “Free Speech” and supporting Milo Yiannopolous, it’s time to find someone to pick on. I hate to be the bearer of bad news here, but I told you so! All that Shock Jocking will get you in trouble! I’ve been saying it since he unleashed hell on Leslie Jones. Whom has reported this and moved on since the beginning. Already, his book deals that he was slated for have backed out. CPAC: the Conservatives group that got rilled up in all with the GOP is just as hypocritical as he is. And VERY hypocritical when Barack Obama was in office. But after he was on Bill Maher’s show, I did say that yes he may have won the battle  so far, but oh: HE IS LOSING the war. I’ve been saying it for days. Just wait when the truth of a certain person comes out and yes there will be those whom say they are not so hot. Yep, this was coming. So what is the lesson kids: hit the haters in the pockets. Ignore their so-called commentary and just rise above it. Simon & Schuster will now understand, that those like Milo will lose when talk about those who have this disdain about peodophia. This is real simple. STOP PLAYING!  And for those whom are defending this idiot that it’s about “Free Speech”, of course its in the 1st Amendment. BUT if aint bragging if you can’t back it up!

Now the second fool: Gilbert Arenas. For those who may not know, there was a “joke” that was handed out on Social Media. That involved thots. The THOTS for those whom don’t know: “That hoe over there”Or in plural tense: Those Hoes Over There Standing (or sitting, or staring) call it what you will. And then there was a message like this, which was so dumb:

 “Old THOTS, leave them young n***** alone.”

He also went on to say:

“Attention old b****** 34 and up…….don’t bring your a***** to All-Star Weekend 2017. Let these young h*** enjoy life.”

Oh I know the horror. This message was supposed to be a “joke” that was passed around on social media to provide that there might have been an “Old Thot” or Third that might have come to the game looking for young ballers to scope out. But then again, some have came for the event anyway with their kids!

When I looked at “the joke” on Facebook it appears that the wording was just attacking females whom are past the “so called age requirement”, got dissed all because the ex-baller’s dumb opinions. The same Gilbert who brought guns to locker rooms and got fined for them. Oh let’s talk about that! His affairs, lord have mercy! 

Dude got issues. Ladies whom are in that category, if you felt being discriminated just because of a certain age of whatever and not considered being a “THOT” per se, of course you can go to a whatever event. Dudes like Gilbert Arenas is just that in this instance: a jerk. Yeah I know that he stated this as some sort of a joke or a warning shot, but he his not your boss.This whole thing reminds me of a certain thing boys get into by other men, it’s called a manbox. Wait a minute, didn’t I talked about this before? About men having this discussion about the “abuse of control” that they get into when getting older? I’m asking this again ladies: have you talked to your men about this? Be honest. This is one example of what’s going on. Men: we have to address this manbox thing even more among ourselves because it’s a concern. And plus, I don’t want any of them to bash men by saying:

“Attention old N*****as, leave them young h*es alone at our games. Go to a sports bars or strip clubs for that”. And OH, some got issues with that!

How would Gilbert Arenas deal with that? Hmmmm…..

 

Now the third idiot on my list today: Kyrie Irving. Oh yes, the same dude that many are looking at as being a good basketball player, but he like many others have been scrwed up the in the cerebral about the planet being flat. Can someone page Neil deGrasse Tyson and get a conference. Kyrie believes and has this “false opinion” about our planet being flat. Um, if you are real fan of Kyrie out of Duke University, you should know that the Earth is round. Always has been, always will be. And oh, even Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors thinks it’s an opinion. UM FALSE OPNINON! If these ballers actually finished college by taking astronomy courses at their colleges they would have gotten it straight. Or if they actually had real money: they could have gone into space on a special mission to see the planet in person. But oh no! They have to be one with their only opinions with the “so-called” truth that many think that they have been lied to. Is that what we’re on? Really?

Many folks in the past also believed that the earth was flat. And they have been proven wrong all over again. So this has been nothing more than a repeated stuff has gone way stupid. How in the heck you are supposed to believe that the Earth is flat without any clear cut evidence to prove that it is flat? Oh yes you can look at the roads being flat or the vision being flat. But when you go up, straight up: the flatness becomes round!

Last time, British rapper B.o.B claimed in his theory that the Earth is flat. And had his own perception. But it took Astrophysicist  Neil DeGrasse Tyson to do this:

 

So this dude, Kyrie Irving can thinks all he wants. But with the “opinions” that he and many like him are somewhat explaining, they need to further clarify any real back up that they speak of. In other words, #EDUCATION!  must come into play and set the real record straight! No more of these playtime opinions that don’t mean crap. This is the real world. We better know.

End of rant.

 


Man, on my facebook news feeds this morning, I and like others were looking at a story about a so-called potential Lion that was roaming the northside of Milwaukee. And alot of the folks per say got duped to believe that. Folks, if there was a real sighting about a so-called liion sighting, the DNR, Zoo and many other high ranking officials would be out like clockwork to see and capture this so-called Lion caper.

Here is what our Milwaukee News Reporters said earlier:

NOW: see this footage.

Viewer claims video shows ‘lion’ in Milwaukee

Also if anyone on Facebook has seen a video claiming a Lion walking around Estabrook Park, here is a cliffnote worthy to share: First, when you see it, you’re going to hear some rap music in the background. Second you’ll see a lion roaming around what it appears to be a parking lot or some marina like setting. Third, the guy on the video will claim that the setting is Estabrook Park at night.

Milwaukee: if you honestly believe that there are “Lion Sightings” around the city, and if you are in the media, the public service to believe that the Lion (or a so-called Lion) is loose, YOU HAVE BEEN OWNED!

This story is silly. A fake. It’s been bamboozling you. And I’ve been to Estabrook Park and it is nothing like that in the video! All it is to get your mind off the real issues that is going on in this city. And suprisingly it worked. You have been hooked, lined and sinkered. It’s just like when Vince McMahon was the “greater power” and the fans of the then WWF Attitude era was tricked during the Monday Night Wars!

Man, folks would believe ANYTHING that is posted on Facebook. You posters out there, are just that: POSERS!

Wanna pose something? Or to display viable solutions? Try posting solutions to the 86 Homicides that Milwaukee got so far. Or lack of jobs. Or the schools we know and love. Let’s see you do that. But you won’t!

Don’t get arrested!

This is my rant.
