Today as we know is Labor Day in which for many is the last blast of the Summer Solstice Vacation Season of 2019. And yet it’s the last of the Unofficial end of Summer of the 2010’s. Let’s be honest, the season in many was a quick one in which it went so fast. And yet, I needed a break to get away from the blogging to concentrate on the mindful of things to write something new. Oh yes, I’ve been taking notes and looking at the crazy footage of our so-called president making a fool of himself thinking he’s the chosen one. OH REALLY?! SINCE WHEN? Enough of this, with all the mess of Education, Crime, Black Folks voting up with White Supremacy, another year without Colin Kaepernick, Jay-Z setting up the Inspire Change in the NFL’s 100th Season, Packers got a new Head Coach that would let loose like crazy, Jonathan Taylor is a Heisman Chaser, and……lets get this over with. I’m scratching my head again.

If you have a fake job that harasses folks, does that make you make “Labor Day material?”

I’m looking at highlights of the Milwaukee Rally of 2019. It’s like a mini-Harley Davidson festival of five days of Motorcycles humming all over the city of Milwaukee. BUT……..As far as the stages of music, will it not hurt if the rally folks look for Black Entertainers that can perform at the rallies? No offense.

What was the Summer Blockbuster Action Movie of 2019?

After 20 plus years in the game, Missy Elliott earned a MTV VMA Vanguard Award. Hold up, you know it’s still the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, right?

So the NFL’s 100th Season will feature the theme of Inspire Change by Jay-Z. Exactly what will be the overall idea of this concerning police brutality? And about Kaepernick?

Marcellus Wiley was literally off his high horse on FS1 taking about Kaepernick’s protest and other concerns that he’s not black enough and all this other things not worthwhile. OK, Colin was biracial born in my home-state of Wisconsin, in my home city of MILWAUKEE and raised in California. So what. Bottom line is the fairness of him is not being projected in terms of him playing. Colin has been warming up for 3 years in the hope of being signed to a NFL Team. So why is Marcellus Wiley tripping like the GOP? And let Roland Martin “deconstruct”the method of this subject!

Since when did our So-Called President wanted to call himself “the chosen one?”

It appears that Milwaukee’s EScooters Pilot Program is a big tryout. From Lime Scooters, to Bird and Spin. And safety is not in play?

How did the Milwaukee Streetcar do with the Hip Hop Week?

A Hip Hop Concert on the Milwaukee Streetcar, August 2019.

With Summerfest is in the rear view for another year, any take on the high and low points of the festivals?

I know I’m not the only one, is it not a shock to see Halloween stuff in the stores already?

With many of the schools starting up for the 2019-2020 semester, this needs to be stated: if you are apart of an Alumni Association that meets once a month and you get yelled at or called out of spite, can all of your former schools chill out?!!! DANG!

For all the football predictors, is it possible that the New England Patriots can actually lose the Super Bowl Title in this year’s season, and yet, can the Green Bay Packers win BACK the NFL North Championship?

Speaking of redemption seasons, it is time for the Wisconsin Badgers Football Team to get back to dominate ways. Now since Qunintez Cephus is back on the scene,along with Jonathan Taylor, I want him to have a redemption season to get back on winning ways to show that hard grit for the Cardinal and White. Who’s down for that? And it should be a REDEMPTION SEASON after all that mess getting Qunitez suspended from the school!

CALLOUT: Why do folks who get mad at class reunions just suddenly ask about publicizing? And what does publicized ACTUALLY mean?!

SECOND CALLOUT: If you just planned a wedding this year and advertise among those a few, but mainly FORGOT those who backed you for YEARS, why is that possible to sell them short?

Taking a vacation is not a one day thing. That is vacationing one day in a city, and going back home the next. Who does that?! And can many folks actually REST for a couple of days to visit? Jeez!

Has anyone seen this Millenials vs Baby Boomers Video?

And…….Gen X and Gen Z is left out. It’s time for a Fatal Four Way. And who agrees?

In August, we observed officially 400 years of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Had many of us actually got the gist of why Slavery is still a problem in America?

So on the video game side of things, Madden 20 will NOT be on the Nintendo Switch, but……is it safe to say that MFL (as in the Mutant Football League) is an alternate to get more teams to play?

It seems that some in Milwaukee want to be mayor for the 2020 Election. And still, does Tom Barrett still want the City Hall Chair for a 5th Term?

For all those Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich fans, if you packed the restaurant in 2019 for a darn sandwich, how come many of you can’t pack a Church Sanctuary on Sundays? And Voting lines, and specifically Parent Teacher Conferences at your child’s school? SPOILER ALERT many of you will fail!

Men: we got 2 more months until International Men’s Day of 2019. Have we NOT had any mistakes planning this?

Hold up: September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. How come there are those companies like the WWE or others are not promoting this? Wear the light blue before pink, men and get your prostates checked up like your sports stats.

When October comes, WWE’s Smackdown will move to Fox, to kick off it’s 20th Anniversary. And just to add, will this give AEW Wrestling a run for it’s money? Or maybe will NXT on USA do it?

So far, the Fiserv. Forum is good after a year. Now the arena’s lettering will be on top of the building with an Orange Glow. Look for it. You know you want to see it. Right?

Who still misses the Bradley Center? Let this video rehash some good memories.

Which WWE Title is most fun right now? I say it’s the 24/7 title. With R-Truth leading the champion changes.

Speaking of WWE Championships, 2019 is the 40th Anniversary of the WWE’s Intercontinential Championship. Who did not know this?

If you graduated from high school in 1995, you know that next year is your 25th Anniversary of your Reunion, right? We’re talking 2020.

The NFL begins it’s 100th Birthday/Anniversary/Season with the old school rivals between the Packers and Bears, instead of the SuperBowl Champion Patriots and their scheduled opponents of whoever they are. For all you Bears fans, you got the SNL superfans and their fake version of Alexa/Google Mini stating they won more titles than the Packers and all that. Are you sure that thing is not rigged?! Good rivalry in all, but unfinished business. And by the way: The Packers STILL OWN MORE NFL TITLES THAN Da Bears! And the rest of the league. 13 championships. Don’t come for Green Bay!

Here is to think about on Labor Day, when it comes looking for work for real paying jobs, why is it always these temp services calling folks the most?! Even if you got a good resume that has been sitting the most all this time with a Bachelor’s Degree?!! We don’t want that!

Here is another thing on Labor Day, what is it about this day with all the hiring discrimination crap that plagues our society all the time?! And you know what I’m talking about. And folks need JOBS!

Is Tales on BET really the new Alfred Hitchcock of the 21st Century for black folks?

September 4th, is the first anniversary of Roland Martin’s show, Roland Martin Unfiltered. After it’s first year of keeping it black and real to a point is this is what we’ve been waiting for in regarding telling our black stories? By the way, support the cause!

Should we chase after folks who uses grammar incorrectly while on Social Media? Especially on Facebook?

Attention Cord Cutters: Which device on the market is good to purchase between Roku, Apple TV, Jetstream TV, Amazon FireStick, and others that don’t require DirecTV Now or should I say now: AT&T TV Now? Many of us want to follow the ditch the dish/high price for cable trend.

Milwaukee Intersection: N. 60th Street and W. Capitol Drive.

In Milwaukee, we have several intersections like this one is perceived as dangerous with all the drivers running red lights. Should these “Grand Theft Auto” wannabes be ticketed and have their licences taken away? And their cars repossessed? Don’t be shocked if this happens!

And the last question: when Labor Day 2020 comes next year, how often should many folks all the time instead of being snobbish of not working?

Pave the way for the Fall Season, we coming!


Men of the world: Today of the 19th Day of November, is our annual day of us. International Men’s Day is here and yet many still complain. I think the many that are complaining are those of the feminists who constantly bash men like a bad habit. Females, you need to calm your nerves in all, this part is just for the guys. And there is a message in all this: it’s just our one stinking day of being appreciated.

With all that’s going on in the world full of mostly men wrecking the shops like ill-mannered clockwork, it’s safe to say that yes, there are of us that do the manly things around the game that need and should be paying attention too. Of course, men have to step up. OF COURSE! But the question is: how?

photogrid_1542663634384

Here in Milwaukee, my local United Methodist Men’s folks within the past year have the decision to come together to generate our ability to revive a Men’s Group. In a way to get us actively involved in our local United Methodist Churches and also among each other. In a way of evangelism, mission, and outreach. And other factors that favor men. Here is the kicker: Men’s group in churches are a gray area. It’s not like the well rounded like the women’s groups. Yes, the women outnumber the dudes 3 to 1 in about everything. But the dudes have and must hold their own! Of course, we heard about the Men being the Heads and women being the tails. But mainly folks are forgetting, not every man can’t lead!

When this international men’s day was coming up, I had to reference back 8 months ago when we were asking the same ol’ tired question around International Women’s Day: “When is International Men’s Day?” Over and over again it was a hot-button topic and still is. Men, did we forget this? For the folks who complain and piss and moan all day: did we complain?! I’m sure many will complain in the next 4 months into 2019 that when another Women’s Day comes around, there will be many more complaints about asking about a men’s day that is worldwide. Already, folks are saying “We have Father’s Day!” or “The whole month of November is for the Movember Movement to get men to think about their health……” or “the pay gap is unfair and men are just messing up to get what we think!” Ya think?! Not really close. Of course, the pay gap is unfair and unbalanced. But that’s not the reason why International Men’s Day shouldn’t exist. And plus not every MAN is a FATHER! Let’s be clear, females! Stop saying Happy Father’s Day to the men who don’t have kids! When the men have children, then you can say that!

As I was reading the think tanks via Social Media, The Guardian Newspaper out of the UK, and talk shows like Ellen today, and even The Forum on Real Resistance Radio this morning: the theme of the day was talking about International Men’s Day. Many have joked about this day occurring, but when you think about these stats from the International Men’s Day Website: 

“Men face a series of health challenges that need to be addressed in order to have our communities function to their fullest potential.”

Current research tells us that:
  1. men have a suicide rate 3 times higher than women
  2. 1 in 3 men have been the victims of domestic violence
  3. men on average die 4-5 years before women
  4. men are nearly twice as likely to suffer from lung cancer than women
  5. men are nearly twice as likely to suffer from heart disease than women

With all the other health concerns listed here: we know that the average man dies early, getting lung cancer and yes heart disease/prostate cancer/colon cancer mostly more than women. BUT…..when you talk about Men dying more of Suicides and above all else being victims of Domestic Violence! Yes ladies, men can be victims of being abused physically, mentally, financially and yes spiritually. And other bad influential beings. Now we know why the International Men’s Day has come into the light since 1999. Be advised ladies! 

It’s almost in comparison like, when we have let’s say in the United Methodist Church, a day set aside for Women for Women’s Day (depending on March or May) and yet Men’s Day is set aside for mostly in June around Father’s Day. And here’s another kicker: I don’t hear any complaints about having a UMW Group and UMM Group so why are we tripping about having a day for the Men? Grow up, folks. 

Men of the world: yes all of us dudes that are single, married, widowed, divorced, in life partner relationships of any kind, active in the classroom, active at work, active in the Church, active in the community of choice, active as introverts (yes I’m one of them), active in the health fields, active in business ownership, active with fraternities, active in the military/veterans groups, active in entertainment,active in politics (in a nice way) active in many other factions: continue to guide your end of the ship to get to the point of where YOU want to go.

Men of the world whom are unemployed, underemployed, underappreciated, forgotten, overlooked, beaten up, scared for life, picked on, generally attacked, disrespected, physically/mentally/spiritually and financially attacked (by both MEN and WOMEN no matter what year or timeframe), discouraged, humiliated, embarrassed, or any other feeling of disrespect or left out: I would say man up,  but excuse my french: HELL NO! If you are a man that has been wronged by these words, it’s ok. If you felt this way or still feeling this way, you are NOT A PUNK! I don’t know who started this crap to think that Men aren’t supposed to feel this way (either men or women) but this crap MUST STOP WITH MEN, PERIOD! It must stop with a strong family. It must stop with a strong education. Strong jobs, strong economic values, strong health and wellness, strong community, strong neighborhoods, strong faith, and a strong structure of better endeavors that many must grasp! It must STOP! And the rebuilding begins with healing. And I don’t know that forgiveness comes in at times, even though it’s hard to forgive. 

And to the men who are the Dark Horses or the Unsung Heroes. And I’m one of these also. Those whom have been undiscovered and still have some talent: the folks will know your name. But for now, keep them guessing and keep your game under wraps. Be that STILL dark horse that many (either other men and women) will stop denying you! They will regret you for not picking you to join their team and I dare say employment!

Men, even though that this International Men’s Day of 2018 is coming to a close for another year, and all have happened, what will we do for International Men’s Day 2019: The 20th Anniversary? What will we do between this International Men’s Day and the next? What will we do? We hear it from the Women that Men need to step up. I agree! But again I ask as Man: a Black man from the United States of America: what’s next to step up too? That’s the million dollar question.

Now, ladies. You may talk.  But enjoy OUR International Men’s Day, gents! Between now and the next November 19th every time. But not every March, OK?! 

For more info about International Men’s Day, here is their link. I would say that this should be useful around every November 19th. But it can be useful to summarize every day!

#InternationalMensDay

#November19th


Well, it has been a minute that I have written a scratch blog, but as I sat back and listened to all the mess in regarding 45, Brett Kavanaugh, the Midterms, and more stories of women getting raped and others, it’s clear that this came at the right time. There is no question about it.

But yes, I’m scratching my head again.

Males: we know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But during September, did we wore light blue for Prostate Cancer Awareness? And oh, why don’t we see no “Fight like a Boy” gear or stickers with the light blue ribbon?!

When it comes to Introverts and yes I’m one of the many, why that is still a problem for many WHO DON’T UNDERSTAND?! Ask your kinfolk, church folks, co-workers, teachers, etc.

25 years ago, I was so hooked on the Wisconsin Badgers Football team. How has that team really paved way for the next squads that did Rose Bowl wins? Even for the school, and the state? Plus that 1993 squad was the first I saw winning something, ever!

It seems that the Brett Kavanaugh saga is just starting to unravel. All these back stories coming out. And just today, a key Republican Susan Collins just supported to get him on the bench of the Supreme Court. Women I need to ask, you really back this crap? And many feel that the decision “raped” every single American today! Screwed up! If only just only that the more votes should have happened in November of 2016………oh wait!

45 just made a comment about the concern about the sake of the nation’s boys. Really?! What brought this on? Like seriously.

In the local midterms of Wisconsin, if Scott Walker were to win in November, it would be his last. Should Tony Evers and Mandela Barnes just make that happen like under 30 days? Like November 6th?

For all the so-called Woke Conscious folks: Can you please lay down your weapons for once and actually VOTE THE F UP?!

How will the 2018-19 Wisconsin Badgers do without those whom cowardly left the squad?! Come on, man!

Oh, it seems that Halloween is upon us. Let me guess, which demons should we exercise right now? Even if his name is……..you guessed it. Same with females.

For all of the movies lately, why Venom?

For all of my Introverted folks: whatever you do, please do not be a Summer Program Developer in your community! It’s not for us being semi-communicative. Is there a way that there are Developer Programs that INTROVERTED folks can come to? No matter if it’s for a church, or community organization? I need answers! And plus it’s a problem if you have no training or apprenticeships! Or should I say ONGOING Training or Apprenticeships?

Since it’s already Autumn, what has or will be an “Autumn Suprise” coming up? And everyone will be talking about it. Just wait.

I should ask: what’s up with those Brewers? In a good way? Postseason wise.

Why is the United Methodist Church talking about the One Church Plan stuff, and not enough of it is being presented to the Black Methodist Community? Like Black Milwaukee?!

While many of you are laughing about this, the Milwaukee Streetcar (aka The Hop) is debuting on Friday, November 2nd, 2018. Which is like 2 days after Halloween. And 20 days before Thanksgiving. And many of the FB laughable are still making jokes. Hmmm…..we’ll see who has the last laugh. Won’t we?

Is the Fiserv Forum really ready for the new era of Milwaukee Sports and Entertainment? Will the Bradley Center be missed like already, The Marcus Amphitheater at Summerfest?

For my black British folks, I know that October is your month of Celebrating Black History. And yes there were or are Hackers that tried to shut your page down in a racist manner. Man, check those fools! STAY WOKE! Why? The hackers are just scared of the truth about black culture, black existence, and black excellence in all areas! And yet they hack the pages in order to have this fear. Again: As we Black Americans would say, STAY WOKE! Any questions?

Why this quote means well? “Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.”

When we say “It’s Harvest Time” we really mean to say, it’s time to take in the plants. Agree?

Why is Columbus Day is still celebrated in America, KNOWINGLY Columbus was really a thief?! Can’t stand the holiday! And usually bad luck for me gets around Columbus Day. Not with it!

With the blue wave still intact, can it withstand the October Surprise?

How will Black Lightning favor for Season 2?

I’m sure many are not job shaming Geoffrey Owens now since he is no longer bagging groceries for Trader Joe’s, right? Ever since that boost from Tyler Perry giving him a shot on The Haves and the Have Nots.

This needs to be asked: why isn’t the WWE promoting Prostate Cancer Awareness in September? We know Childhood Cancer Awareness and Breast Cancer Awareness. But yes the Men’s Health Awareness must be included. I’m just saying, WWE!

Wishful thinking: should the franchise of Revenge of the Nerds be rebooted? Nah, keep the originals!

Since the Packers are in their 100th Season, has it been a slow start? But hey, they’ve started slow and got hot when it’s stone cold. Prove me wrong.

Millennials, your favorite latte season is back. Oh, you know we still say Fall or Autumn, right?

And the last thing to ask: now since Bill Cosby is in jail, and many of the folks non black usually goes free, and you know many ask: why is still the Justice system is BROKEN?! Many because of unfair treatments?!
