Let me say this: Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Mothers who are grinding. Those whom are old school, new school, community, and many others. Oh yes it’s your day and you probably had a blast.

For now, I’m scratching my head again.

So James Comey got fired by #45. The same one that took down Hillary and the so-called emails.  Are we suprised?

Oh I see that the class of 2017 at Bethune Cookman College did not appreciate the presence of Betsy DeVos. And the folks on Social Media (in an opposite sense) had to call them disrespectful or “they won’t get any jobs” speech. Who’s the blame? Not the students! And for the record, she did talked “smack” about the HBCU Schools! Let’s be real.

If you’re a black graduate from Liberty University and just heard #45 spoke, and after the stuff he pulled so far, what is going through your mind?

What’s it going to take to solve this? Seeing a bunch of folks protecting a statue with torches?

Really, Steve Harvey? You fired your staff and having this “shield” that you don’t want to talk? Dude, stop!

Is Facebook really that hypocritcal? You get your movie clips with music banned but they don’t remove a pic with someone being hanged. Really?

Most recently, there have been alot of Sky Fox drones for news. Can there be more Sky Fox drone Jobs? Hmmmmm…..

In Wisconsin, can there be “Telepresence Jobs” and “Fab Lab Jobs” in the making for us over 30 years old? Training perhaps? With Bachelor’s and such.

Who is making all these so called memes about the Holy Bible and Slavery? Like the design and slave boats?

Does Wisco have a “Real Strong” candidate against Scott Walker? I mean a real strong candidate? No weak folks in 2018!

So folks hate these “spinning fidgits” that are being advertised. Being all distractive. How so?

Why I don’t see more POC in the Sons of The American Legion, Auxillary Legion or the Legion Riders? Especially in areas where not enough POC’s reside? I think they need to expand it more to the minority communities.

Milwaukee: did we enjoyed the 2nd Annual MPS Alumni Reunion?

Looking at the polls about the firing of James Comey. 29% only approve of his removal. What about the other percentage?

Milwaukee: what about that streetcar construction?

Why is #45 using the word “tapes”?

Glad to see that the Obamas are not going away. Good. Will the haters listen yet again?

Why is hazing still a problem in Fraternities and Sororities that lead to death? I don’t know it’s time to use a background check on the groups.

Dang, why was a 15 year old black teenager Jordan Edwards, who had straight A’s was recently killed in a car by a local police department in Texas? Did his life (black life) mattered? Oh I don’t hear the “All Lives Matter” groups talking now!

Ok. I have to say this: why was Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders took on the salary speaking funds that Barack Obama is getting?  Let the man get his paper!

Alot of the haters still hate on the Affordable Care Act. And those are supposed to be “Gun Touring Christians and follow the Good Book to screw others” in all. And I’m saying this as a Christian! Um….explain the details of why that about 29 million Americans should not get any coverage of pre-existing conditions. Explain why that those who are diagnosed with Diabetes, MS, Cancer, Heart Disease, or any other health concern should not get nothing to treat! Y’all making me run back to the medical folks for physical. Dang!

And the last question is…….. Mothers, are you blessed once again for Mothers Day? Enjoy and have fun. And always honor those whom are not here physically but around spiritually.

Speaking of which, I will be doing a Father’s Day Scratching head in honor of my father, and other fathers whom are eternally resting. And those whom have stepped up to the plate that act upon like fathers. It will be special. Stay tuned.


Guess what? I’m back. Had to take a blogging break. But just in time before Mother’s Day. Now for every mother in the building have a great Mother’s Day. But before that happens, I’m about to scratch my head again of the most recent events.

If all lives really matter, again what is up with the still hate of Black Citizens?

I heard that a member of the US Navy passed. And I’ll bet many have to bust out saying “I’ll honor him than some Entertainment dude.” Really?!

Still can’t stand the hypocrites in church huh? Do those have hypocrites in the workplaces also? I’ll wait. Especially if you are on Facebook or Instagram talking comments.

I’m still trying to wrap my head around “fat shaming”. Like it’s a new phrase. Have we always been fat shaming folks? Stop me if you hear “yo mama is so fat”…. Hello?

Note to Adele: we know the love, but you know that Beyonce is not Jesus Christ, right?

So Donald Trump is the main Republican Representative. What’s the move Democrats? Hillary or Bernie?

It’s stupid. Those that hated Prince for years are now liking him. Like Michael and Whitney, where was the likes when they were alive?

Is Milwaukee ready for the new reincarnation of getting things done?

Now since the spring election is over in Milwaukee, can I please ask why former Alderman Joe Davis had to endorse Bob Donovan?!

“We built this city.” Why that for an Milwaukee Election?

On the radio in Black Milwaukee: Wheaton Franciscan has a 30 second radio spot: “Get a Doc”. All jazzy in the background. My question is to say does everyone really know?

Is America really that great, that can be great again?

I see those I love Mom pics. Will the I love Dad pics show up for Father’s Day?

Man listen: why do folks hate birthdays being celebrated?

So Scott Walker wants us Wisconsin folks to take a drug test while collecting unemployment. Are you the “not going to vote” folks that blind?

Class of 2016: are you ready?

Dang what is up with these folks still trying to get folks hooked up in the wrong places?!

Can the Singles have a day or Month without all the marriage hassle?

Can Milwaukee have real meaningful jobs like of Chicago, DC, New York, LA, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, NASA, or Facebook?

Is Big Mama still alive? Or has this Generation killed her?

Should all Universities have African-American Alumni groups?

No offense, but why is Mother’s Day is slightly higher than Father’s Day?

Is the workplaces as well as highly Extroverted groups ready for Introverts?

We know the Milwaukee Streetcar is coming. Yes! Can the state at least review why the high speed rail really was scrapped again? Hint: Racism was in play.

One last thing: Why are folks calling this racist? Seriously?


Let me just have one comment on this. For all of those so-called patriotic Americans who feel that there is no Racism or “All Lives Matter” or feel that when Black Folks are celebrated, they get mad and protest after feeling offended by black fists in the air? I had a cousin that was a Vietnam Veteran and he had a fist in the air! He is deceased now. But look: with all due respect to the uniform regulations which I understand, but this is not politics West Point! And I speak as a son of a West Point Graduate that went into the Army and served in the Vietnam War! Don’t play me!

Other than that, enjoy your day Mothers.

Hope everyone had a chance to wish their Fathers, a productive Father’s Day. Even if you are a single mother holding it down to the fullest. Now, check this, I’m in Walgreens in Wauwatosa, which is a suburb of Milwaukee, and I happen to find a Father’s Day card for my father. What I also see is a Father’s Day for Mothers. WHAT!!!!! as the folks say now. I see the ranting/venting of this on Facebook, and both positive and negative about who should fit the role of father. Mostly it’s has been negative coming from Single Mothers who harshly reject the use of Father, because they feel that title should be given on the male side of things. But according to a historical thing, the controversial story really broke out in 2011 all because of the disdain of the use of “father” in today’s society of the 21st Century.

Father's Day Card for Mothers

I want to know, what is all the disdain about single mothers can’t play the role the father? And folks on social media getting mad at this? Especially Facebook. Now yes we know hardly that father’s aren’t around when it comes to children, or teens or adults. I get it. There have been female  folks from my family and some of my friends who are single parents and hold it down. They do the both roles well. And to top it off, the mentions about real fathers come to mind. For those who are wondering, yes I was raised in a two parent household. – A mother and father. And my immediate family is basically nuclear: 2 parents, and 2 children. Not to brag or boast, but it is the truth. And the ideal of Father’s Day should not be overlooked. Period. When Mother’s Day came and went on the second sunday in May, most of us got our sunday clothes on and showed up big time in church or at a Mother’s Day outing for our mothers. No question about it. However when Father’s Day comes, not as measurable as Mother’s Day. Now granted, Father’s Day is celebrated. But with all the negative hype with the issues, it makes it more harder to celebrate and appreciate the value that they put in each time. Technically father’s day should just be appreciated as mother’s day.

Now I know that when the card came out with the “For you Mom on Father’s Day” that really set some folks off. And since I was in Walgreens, it was in the Mahogany section of the Hallmark Cards. The Mahogany Hallmark Cards have that close connection with the African-American Culture. You know how MSNBC has “The Grio?’ And yes they do sell during birthdays, funerals, appreciation, just any other card you see regularly. Even Christmas!  Plus the issue of single parenting in today’s era has become the norm sort of speak.  And even though that the role of father has been legendary, other men like uncles, male mentors, foster fathers, male cousins (older), and even community minded folks like me who don’t have children yes that day was for us as well. Even at times like me who didn’t expect it, but it’s good to be appreciative by those who overlook children when the parents are away or have to go behind the scenes for important matters. Remember the “Collective Responsibility” montage from Melissa Harris-Perry? Same thing here!

So with that being said, and I know it’s late: Happy Father’s Day to all those dads, grandfathers, uncles, male cousins, male mentors, single fathers, community fathers, and single mothers who have to hold the fort day by day (yes, it has to be said) that day was for us!

Bonus: take a look at a video of what Roland Martin said on Father’s Day. Yes, he and his wife doesn’t have any kids. BUT they are raising their nieces in their household. It was on the subject: “Thank God For Daddy.”
