July 4th: As in the 4th of July, you know America’s Birthday in all? And I’m sorry to say that many aren’t feeling the goodness in all in which many have came so far in advance of getting that American Dream that many continue to thrive for all this time. And yet, it’s still out there. So for this 244th edition of the Birthday, it’s time to go deep into the thoughts of asking and yes to come clean.

Oh, who am I kidding: With all the mess surroundings Black Lives being murdered, the Pandemic keeping us separate but equal in a sense, the fake tyranny response team is racist, not enough 4th Celebrations except for A Capitol Fourth, Don Lemon and the Empire State Building, Statues and Battle Flags of hate have been destroyed and taken down, Generation Z is on fire, And yet: I’m scratching my head again.

As I mentioned in the blog before: there should be a hashtag with blacks and the fourth. Anyone agree? As an example: #AtFirstTheFourthOfJulyWasntForBlacks

Hold up: how many Americans can name other Blacks that fought in the revolution that were slaved and a freed black?

Yes black folks, you can celebrate the 4th just a little. But it may come at a price. Yes?

It’s a fact: there were some in the founding fathers that wanted slavery to be gone in the Declaration. But it was not completely erased. Care to think why?

Black folks why are we saying, “Pull Up”?

So this pandemic took away our freedom with the masks on? Really?!

Black women, when was the last time you did this for your ancestry tracing….to the American Revolution times?

Women of Color – Daughters of the Revolution 2020

So after that, Black Men what about you? There is a way to track this!

This is the question that really is questionable: they say that respecting other people begins with Public Education. BUT…..it really starts at home like everything else. Agree or disagree?

Sooner or later: Joy Reid of MSNBC will have her own show in the evening timeslot. “The Reid Out” is a coming! Who’s watching when it comes out?

For many who screams out Black Lives Matter as a “Marxist” group, spell it. Can it happen?

Which team in America is the real team that is “America’s Team?” I’m still saying the Packers!

Which Dream Team was so dominate that is still being talked about? Yes I’m talking about the Original Dream Team from 1992. As in USA Basketball.

Which National Anthem is best? Beyonce, Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye, or some unsung artist that nobody heard of?

With all the despise of American problems, does anyone believe that African-Americans were and are the “UNSUNG Builders” of the country?

What is your “Real American Soundtrack” to you?

Oh, speaking of National Anthems: should “Lift Every Voice and Sing” be added to the listing of songs we sing every 4th of July like during Black History Month, Juneteenth or Dr. King’s Holiday?

With all the despise of American problems, does anyone believe that African-Americans were and are the “UNSUNG Truth Tellers” of the country? While of course many can acknowledge the positive?

So there are those whom have a problem with African Americans wearing black on the 4th. Like in the last blog, I mentioned that there are those whom wear black everyday like the Funeral Directors or Undertakers. Even those like the Gothic culture. So what’s the problem? Heck I was wearing a Old Navy Shirt and jogging pants that was black.

For all the African-Americans: are we “more American” that these individuals? Yeah these individuals that don’t speak for all of Black America?! They are all scared of Black Media that will go deep with the truth!

Black America: are we “More American” than these folks who claim they love the flag, love to preach about MLK, and oh they might not appear as they seem like….vandalizing a Black Lives Matter Mural?

Black America: Are we are “more American” than those who claim that when the phrase “Black Lives Matter” rings out, many had to claim to say “All Lives Matter? Just to deflect and shut down?

Black America: are we are “more American” that those claim that BLM supporters that vandalize buiildings, or set fires to destroy neighborhoods?!

Black America: are we are “More American” than those who claim all this bravado and boldness like defending the country like during WWII? Or any other World War that blacks were involved in since the start of the nation? And even though many never acknowledge the fact that racism, the Double Victory Campaign and other forms of discrimination actually happened, but still should we?!

Black America: Are we and should we be more American to own our businesses, learn to operate Virtual Learning in schools and homes, fundamentality recap our health concerns, and many other vital needs to uplift US?! Even in this COVID-19 Pandemic?

Black America: Are we and SHOULD WE be MORE AMERICAN: when addressing the difference of Black Lives Matter and to really of course addressing the problems in our communities? I know this is an hard question, but at least Amanda Seales had to comment this. Look for it on Instagram. She dropped those jewels!

Class of 2020, are you having fun yet? This is just the beginning. Hold tight for a long bumpy ride.

Check this: how will the 2020 4th of July historians really align themselves with the discussions of the 155th anniversary of Juneteenth Day?

Speaking of the DNC: How are the ideas coming along, Milwaukee? We are about ONE month away from welcoming the Democrats to the Brew City! – Which is will be “virtually” due to the pandemic.

Will all U.S. Cities celebrate the 4th of July next year in 2021?

What is the one place in America that many haven’t gone but need to go?

Seriously asking: is every way the American way? AFTER all the pandemic outbreak laws, folks not wearing masks, not being socially distant, fools who go out with the Gadsden/Rebel Flags think that tyranny is a foot, and the ongoing killings of Unarmed Black Men and Black Women such as George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. Oh, by the way: the killers whom have killed Breonna have NOT BEEN CAUGHT or arrested! Where is the American Way for that? And where was Elijah McClain’s American Way when he was killed last August?!

For many of us looking forward to the Summer Reunions of Alumni and Family, should virtual reunions be better this year? Now is not the time to hate Zoom, WebEx or Facebook Messenger Rooms. Or Microsoft Teams.

Can all the Election Inspectors and Election Commission Groups be more socially distant between August 11th and November 3rd?

Word is that Black Folks should have a “Freedom Week” between June 19th – July 4th. Anyone else agree?

And the last question: Is Generation Z really ready to rock and roll as in ready for the cause? I see them but they have a long way to go. They have a good start of making things happen!

BONUS STATEMENT: Between now and the next 4th, see below!


Before the annual tribute to fathers in all begins, this blog is for all the fathers young and old. Happy Father’s Day to the men who are Dads, Grandfathers, Uncles, Great Uncles, Great Grandfathers, StepFathers, God-Fathers, and many other fathers on the planet that deals daily with being a FATHER ALL DAY EVERY DAY! Oh yes, of course, this is the part where many go hard and stupid on the men who don’t step up and raise their kids as much as the women. Look here: there are real daddies out there that DO and I mean DO HANDLE THEIR BUSINESS! There is no question in that. Also for many like me, another father’s day will be hard because my father is deceased for three years. And yet the memories will never die in vain. So even though I’m new to this being without my Dad, the hard thought of him never dies out. And also for those who sympathize and your Dad is still living and you somewhat understand that you really don’t know the feeling until YOU go through the experience.

CALLOUT: And also for all the women who tell the single men without kids Happy Father’s Day, STOP!!! You know darn well not every man is a FATHER! If you say it, we’ll tell you: “I’m not a father.” Don’t tell us Happy Father’s Day because we don’t earn it until it becomes a hard job for us to try and accept. Especially those of us whom are single, unmarried, no kids of our own and just living the single life that many feel are bad and miserable.  Be careful, ladies. Don’t snag us like that. Of course, you can wait until November 19th for International Men’s Day. Or some honorable thing of celebrating Men in the church or community that don’t have kids.

For all the workers of the world, do you realize that it’s time to go back to the office?

Men, since this is a month for our health, you have been thanking the nurses and doctors during the pandemic, do you think it’s time to go back to one? Men’s Health Month is still an objective.

For all the haters that don’t like Virtual Graduations: the students did graduate. What are you hating on?

Hear me out when I say Distance Education rules! Now what?

Was it just me, or Summer 2020 just came in real quick?

If many are not willing to wait, do the questions of still be being “socially distant” mean anything to any?

June is also Pride Month. How you’re doing LGBT folks?

June is also Black Music Month. Be honest. Who still benefits from Black Music since forever? Even if you hate it!

Word is that the 2020 BET Awards might go simulcasting. Even to the non cable networks. And Viacom will do this, how?

For those whom are black and woke: this might be a hard question to ask but in regarding the 4th and many of us hate it because of it’s ties to slavery. Yes it’s true for those whom are so Red, White and Blue that the period whom

After all the protests and the demands of defunding the police so far, are the communities ready to listen to black Americans?

Aunt Jemima, Cream of Wheat, and maybe Mrs. Buttlesworth’s are on the verge of retirement due to the ongoing views of the products being tied to segregation or this case, White Supremacy. Any questions?

Dealing with coronavirus and all the folks don’t care about the corona, what did your doctor really say, again?

Oh, for all you NASCAR fans: why are you mad about the confederate flag? Oh wait a minute, that’s right it’s racist! Nevermind.

Another question: If you have graduated so far to enjoy the smelling of the roses of your achievement, congratulations. Now you realize that you have to give back to your Alma Mater, right? And if your Alma Mater screws up with Alumni events planned: HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE! #AlumniStatus

Speaking of Black Music (after all, June is Black Music Month again) which Music in Black History that many know so well that it will not die through the depths of time?

CALLOUT: How can Black Men and Black Women be woke and hate on each other for petty stuff? Yes, this does happen!

Ok, this I need to know: Which artist is really looking forward to performing for the 2020 BET Awards?

For baseball: there is an opening pitcher and a closing pitcher. Regarding Juneteenth Day 2020, closing pitch. The 4th: opening pitch. Why do you ask?

For all of my Pride Readers: that’s the LGBT folks. Is your Pride Month good this year so far?

This might be asked: will many or some of the areas of Milwaukee have Fireworks? For the 4th of July?

Oh yes, how will us Milwaukeeans will be getting around without Summerfest this year?

Which or many of us Men have on the Light Blue for Men’s Health Month?

The NBA and rumored that MLB might start up again. Will the outlook of competition be less or more? And a reminder: there is a pandemic going on.

The Last Ride was a hit. I’m glad that the Undertaker (aka Mark Calaway) told his story. I like many can understand that he wanted to protect the Deadman character over the years behind the curtain. And I had no idea that he had to go through those surgeries and refreshed wrestling skills to maintain the game. Of course, The Undertaker is already a household name for 30 years, but many a few remember him back as Mean Mark Callous in WCW. He was an original “Paul Heyman Guy”. And similar to many wrestlers that were good, not so marketable; it was a foul ball of bad business. However like many also, it wasn’t all the case against Undertaker. It was the promoters. Let’s be honest, the promoters were indeed wrong but had to appreciate. Overall, the Last Ride was lived up to the hype. Thoughts?

And now: A moment for the Fathers. 

For all the Dads that are just now coming out, what will be your reaction for your OFFICIAL first Father’s Day?

For all the Dads that are still around kicking knowledge, what is your best advice for the new Dads coming up?

In Memoriam: For those of us who miss our Dads. This is hard as we know. How do we go through the storm yet again that our Dad’s memories will not die? No matter when and where? May all of our deceased fathers rest in power for eternity and in peace. Mine also.

What is up with this attitude that when Father’s Day comes around, females get an attitude? Oh especially around this time of year?

Has #GirlsDad been always a norm?

When church comes on Sunday, what will be the estimated percentage of Men coming for Father’s Day? It ain’t big for many!

How many Men have actually wore Light Blue for Men’s Health Month on Father’s Day like the MLB?

After this Father’s Day is over, Men you do realize that International Men’s Day is about 5 Months away after June 19th? For those of us whom are not fathers with no kids, let’s celebrate that! No matter what we do or say. I say as an idea, promote International Men’s Day ON Father’s Day too!

Should all Churches and Community Groups have an All Men’s Day? At least for men whom are not fathers in all?  Unsung, perhaps?

Ok, this needs to be asked: what kind of a man is an “Unofficial” Father? or an “Unofficial Dad?” You heard of Honorary Degrees that might be fake. Just saying.

Another need to be asked: no disrespect to Father’s Day or Mother’s Day, but why we have slept on Children’s Day? Which is every second Sunday in June?! Look it up. And don’t say everyday is a Children’s Day.

And………the final question of Father’s Day 2020: what will the Father’s take from this year into the first Decade of the 2020’s? That’s is even worth celebrating for the next generation to ponder in all.

For all the Dads that read my blog, ENJOY YOUR Father’s Day. Be blessed at it. Don’t let none of the disruptive folks hate the thought you got this day. If your Dad is still around kicking knowledge, hold him close! You never know when the day or the hour when it might be his last.


Here it is: it’s the post edition of the Spot and yet we are supposed to be in the post quarantine mode. Apparently, not. If one of the many have gotten their wish about “Opening America” while getting increased distance of anti-social distancing, anti physical distancing, not wearing masks, no gloves on, not taking the advice of these doctors and scientists, still blaming the democrats of taking always folks freedoms and liberties, 45 acting stupid as usual, GOP in Wisconsin are messing up, Michigan under scrutiny because a black lawmaker went to work with armed black men, plus the hunt against Black Men are still at large, and oh many morons still say the sacreglious phrase of “Happy Memorial Day” WHICH IS NOT! Allow me to scratch my head again.

Hold up: Des Moines, Iowa – WHAT IN THE HAWKEYES LOSING TO THE BADGERS HEARTLAND TROPHY ARE YOU DOING?!

Roland Martin Unfiltered: Black Man beaten in Race Attack in Iowa.

So we just found out about the “gaffe” that Joe Biden said in regards to those whom are Black Conservatives and in his words: “You Aint Black!” Well you know what, if the So-Called woke black folks whom back 45 is actually a thing well how would you explain what 45 did in terms of taking down a portrait of Barack Obama in the White House BREAKING A TRADITION that goes back 40 years?!

So it seems that our so-called President is now labeling Churches as “essential.” REALLY? And now he wants to governors of the country to open them up to bring the normalcy back together. If they don’t do it, he will. IN WHICH HE CAN’T! What will this prove? And by the way, many churches are saying no regardless!

It seems that Republicans want the citizens to rush back for more stuff all trying to get the country reopened. Wait, what has stopped them before with all the harsh disagreements?

Black folks, should Sam’s Club be boycotted after this assault on a 68 year old woman and her son at 43 years old? And her son is MY AGE!

Roland Martin Unfiltered: Police Brutality on Woman and her son in Sam’s Club.

So educators, and those whom are home schooling: How’s that Virtual Education coming along? You all need balance!

In Milwaukee, there was an officer that is being charged with a crime. For all of my Milwaukee folks who didn’t back Tom Barrett: would you back him up for this officer to be fired?

So 45 believes that voting by mail is not right, eh? What about the Poll Workers who operate the sites? You know they have to vote ahead of time!

Every Church MUST LEARN, how to do Zoom, WebEx, Tithe Online, Coordinate Meetings onilne or Audio Phone Conference just to keep up and also WORSHIP! Why is that so hard? Oh wait not everyone is “technically inclined.”

Does it feel real good to acknowledge your anniversary on the actual day of your Graduation Ceremony? Me: Tech School – 20 years. High School next month: 25.

Speaking of Grad Anniversaries: For the reunion buffs, if your Class Reunion would be cancelled for another 5 years or so due to the Coronavirus, you know you can do Zoom Video Conferencing or Facebook Messenger Rooms right?

Are folks still updating their resumes and portfolios and SKILLS to the resumes?

What jams from 1995 are folks listening to in 2020 with all this Quarantine Aftermath gripping us with pain and pestilence?

It’s good to see that the Class of 2020 is getting their due during the virus outbreak. Regardless of the outcome, they should be celebrated. Right? I mean we see it online, does that mean something?

Again: this needs to be asked and harshly questioned: when it comes to Memorial Day, why our younger folks are saying “Happy Memorial Day” like everyone is clueless? DUH! Memorial Day is not for the cheering to be happy, it’s for the deceased who lost their lives in the World Wars and it’s a day of remembrance! Y’all can stop this mess! Should those ask the dumb question need to be punched in the throat?

About 25 years ago, when folks used to ask dumb questions, it usually resounds when it’s not really a dumb question. (No question is a dumb question) My question can it be revived differently?

You need to know that BLACK PEOPLE started Memorial Day. Right? May 1st, 1865.

Memorial Day 2020 will be different because usually Baseball would be on and cracking. But what will take place of the National Pastime?

For all the movies and shows that came out in 1990, which reunion show or movie was the best one so far?

For all the music that came out in 1990 (way before internet radio) who and what was cracking the most that will make most artist today to run for the hills and hide?

CALLOUT: Generation X, are we still winning with our ways that many before us thought it was deemed a waste? Even during the pandemic? Yeah, way before you Millennials and Generation Z folks.

For the men and women of the Armed Forces during the Pandemic, you good?

For the men and women of the Medical Game during this Pandemic, you good?

For the families of the Men and Women who lost a loved one during war, or a Veteran that kept telling his or her stories over and over again that passed on to the other side, are we good? We need to be. Hard but still.

When The Last Dance appeared 10 times for each part, did that really shocked those that Jordan was that mean dude that many couldn’t stand? But they liked him anyway?

Oh this needed to be said: in The Last Dance, Michael Jordan kind of “heckled” some Packers fans in 1998 after they lost the Super Bowl on the plane. He was like: “Hey Cheeseheads, how about those BRONCOS?!” Oh, yeah everyone hated the Pack. Someone should tell Michael not to come from Green Bay! At the time, the Packers were the 12 Time NFL Champions. 12 Times! And Jordan was on his 5th. Don’t come for Green Bay! Why you asked? And keep reminding the Chicago Bears that they haven’t won anything big since Ronald Reagan was President. One time Superbowl Champions my butt! Yeah, tell that story!

Oh let me see, when it comes to white privilage, there’s always this:

Roland Martin Unfiltered: Woman Accosts Black Cop

Does that count as being bigoted or working the fake “Slave Patrol” that is going on? Especially hunting down black men/women?

Just In: More White Privilege. Press Play:

Roland Martin Unfiltered: Central Park Karen gets FIRED!

For all you folks that accuse African-Americans threating white women that this one, expect a termination. Should that be enforced in all companies? And your face is in public.

JUST IN TODAY: This is so UNACCEPTABLE! For all those who love the cops, flagging the Blue Lives Matter Mantra of backing the cops, and seeing this hellacious act of police brutality over in Minnesota, what and where is YOUR REACTION when you see this? Your voices are silent and scared and just cowardly! This was a black male, George Floyd was arrested and one of the cops had his knee on his neck FACE DOWN! George Floyd had 8 minutes of his 46 years of life to live and died at the scene. All this since Memorial Day. By the way this will be discussed in the My Take blog coming up.

The Telegraph – George Floyd Death Scene, 2020. ****WARNING: GRAPHIC FOOTAGE****

This may be off topic, but there are talks and ideas that should be that blacks should take up arms. As in Guns, as in protection. There is a organization, NAAGA which stands for, National African American Gun Association. And it is growing! NRA is failing at the seams. After not acknowledging Philando Castile, Ahmaud Aubery, and most recently, Kenneth Walker. Should all blacks carry arms like the white counterparts which happens all the time? And oh should blacks embrace the 2nd Amendment and make it their own?

PLUS: Where is Wisconsin (especially Black Wisconsin) is in this?!

*Sidenote from the NAAGA Chapters Site:

What the heck is this? TYRANNY RESPONSE TEAM?!

And the last question before we once again pay homage to our fallen military and veterans: Since when did Gov. Tony Evers had this thing regarding being like Hitler? That so-called White Privilege is heating up like a bully. You know who are the real Hitlers: Look at Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald.

Never forget the fallen!


Oh you know I’m about to go in. 2019 was crazy! It had me on point, it had me on rotation, and it had me bugged out. But at the end of me asking these crazy questions we might understand it better. But…since this is the last Scratching my Head all this time of the year, but it’s not the last! So as we countdown to the last ticks of 2019, and we prepare for our Watch Night Services, All Night parties, and family gathering to usher in transition of 2020, and yes to get our resolutions out of what we want to do in all: you’ve guessed it, I’m scratching my head YET AGAIN!

Alright, who remembers any of my blog posts from 10 years ago like 2009?

What was the worst interview this country has ever seen in 2019?

Black folks, why are we still saying the N-Word? Why is that really?!

In 2019: who got promoted?

In 2020: who will actually vote? Not just one time during the Presidential election!

In 2019: Did many actually went to the doctor?

In 2019: Did any of you retained your resolutions?

In 2018: Milwaukee, did you enjoyed the State Fair as well as Summerfest?

In 2019: Have any of you saved up financially for that nest egg?

In 2019: level with me, how many times that many of you DID NOT support your Alumni groups?

In 2019: Who did the most work in your community? Don’t say the same people!

In 2019: Who did no work in the community? They need to be called out.

In 2019: Who was the “Dark Horse” in your family, church, organizations, etc?

In 2019: who has a job lined up for 2020 that will be even MORE SECURE?

In 2019: Who wanted a job lined up that no one wanted but applied anyway?

In 2019: How many churches you prayed to, in order to be the best they can?

In 2019 : What influenced you to vote against the Republicans that many despised for 2020?

The American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary turned 100 years old in 2019, right? I want to know how many African-Americans will join up and also, how many Sons of Black Veterans will join the Sons of the American Legion? Even Black Daughters the same with the Auxillary?

How many liked Black Lightning this year even more?

For all the Masons, Order of Eagles, Shriners, Divine 9, American Legion Family, Elks, VFW and others, based on what I have read this year regarding young folks joining your groups: what are you going to do about it and what will you do to get new members?

In Milwaukee, many of us have seen the sample of Light the Hoan yet again. Who made a donation in 2019?

Black Methodists in Wisconsin, guess what? BMCR made an impact this year. What did you think?

United Methodist Men in Wisconsin, you know there is a metro men’s group in town looking for “Men at Work”. Have any of you checked out any the meetings this year? If so, what did you think? If not, why?

So I have heard that some of the GM cars might be on the chopping block in the year ahead, which of those cars will be less to buy in the future? And what about Tesla?

I need to ask also, who will miss Empire? It’s the last season.

With all the retirees retired this year, who is next to go in 2020?

If many still did blackface in 2019 which was shameful, can many not do it in 2020?

Who actually “migrated” out of Milwaukee that moved to Atlanta or Texas just to get away from the racism but only to realize that racism is everywhere? Like violence?

If you hated Church folks so much in 2019, why keep talking about it?! Especially those who keep sharing those false memes?!

If many did this in 2019: Resumes. Did many kill it for job interviews?

Can someone explain again the bad connection between buying Christmas gifts and Tax Time?

In all of the 1,000 posts so far, what wasn’t mentioned?

In all of the 1,000 posts what was learned from you?

In all of the 1,000 posts did anyone ever to follow what else I had to say?

Which Wisconsin teams surprised many in 2019? Brewers, Packers, Badgers, or Bucks?

Of all the folks who passed away this year, who was the main person that didn’t receive much recognition?

Of all the folks who were honored this year for their hard work, even milestone work, who didn’t get any recognition after their hard work?

Anyone lost their job unfairly in 2019?

Who was EMBARRASSED HARSHLY in 2019 that will not go away? And will it take a long time too heal?

When folks in the United Methodist Church talk about the future of Black Churches how come many pass over it? And what is the main reason why many UMC objectifying the reasons of not including the LGBTQIA Community as being outcasts?!

And this is the last question before the ball drops and clocks out for 2019: What will you carry into 2020 that you learned in 2019? And also, what will you NOT take into 2020 that you went through hellfire and brimstone in 2019?

Now: let’s go party.

Happy New Year!

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!


So here we are once again. Mother’s Day 2019. For all the mother’s still alive and teaching, Happy Mother’s Day to all of you. I hope that many of you will enjoy your day that is specialized with customized opportunities to be with your families and friends. And to many of us also, from all the school shootings, the NBA Playoffs in full swing, and even the local, regional and national things abound of course: I’m scratching my head again.

So America: I need to ask, what about those Milwaukee BUCKS? In the playoffs and such? By now, they defeated Detroit and also just made the Boston Celtics look foolish after Paul Pierce’s “It’s over” comments after Game 1. Now he wants to ride the Deer to all the rest of the games leading up to the Finals. Seriously, dude?!

Dang Paul Pierce!

Confession: I have NOT seen not one episode of Game Of Thrones. Not one. And it’s their last season. Anyone else on this besides me?

You know that not all Churches operate the same, right?

All Wrestling Fans need to buy stock. Yeah I said it. Save that Belt money for stock money. Agree?

This needs to be asked: why there are those 35 years old and under that don’t want to volunteer?

After all the suspense, is Mortal Kombat 11 a hit game?

Will AEW Wrestling actually bring the pain to the WWE? Like seriously?

For all those asking and wondering, what is the value of being in the group that is Woke and Conscious?

If many of the crazed fans are getting away with murder of racism, why are they are just now getting caught? Explain!

This really needs to be asked and questioned: regarding the use of Facebook. It’s been stated by the company that Facebook has always been targeting the users or well known that have been used to “spread hate” on those that they don’t understand. And to top of all that, some of the names like Alex Jones and Milo Yiapolonous (who gave Leslie Jones a hard time over the Ghostbusters movie) and many others the Facebook Boot.

Hold up, this needs to be extra clarified: Why was Minister Louis Farrakhan of all folks BOOTED from Facebook?! And I question that on Facebook’s conscience of judgement. And yet while were on the subject and I want to say that booting Farrakhan was a grave mistake. And what? For telling the truth on subjects that many in the country or the world that shouldn’t be hearing? There are those in the world that wouldn’t hear the real truth on certain ideals or subjects and get mad at those that are spewing the fire. In regarding Minister Farrakhan, he already had his chance on other platforms and also been banned from some of the platforms on what many called him a racist. Is that so? And if’s the case, why is 45 still on social media spewing his hatred like a dumb idiot that many are calling him? Can you imagine what would the like if MLK or Malcolm X were on Facebook and ALIVE? Unfortunately, both of them were assassinated at 39 years old and they died by doing by telling the truth! So this is how many are treating the civil rights era related folks by after they told the truth, they get booted off the island? Facebook maybe good in all, but I think in this and no disrespect to Mark Zuckerberg, but the product is getting soft of going in after those who use the platform to speak the ills of OUR SOCIETY! And by the way, Minister Farrakhan is on Twitter, so along with Facebook, he’s also banned from Instagram.

Did Tiger Woods really deserved the Presidential Medal of Freedom after winning the Masters?

What was all this male attention stuff of Ayesha Curry got her butt hurt in all?

The month of May is two things: Military Appreciation Month and also, Mental Health Awareness Month. You know what it is. Why is it important to recognize them both you asked?

For all those whom are the age of this chick named Lizzo, you have no right to critique the music of John Williams being lazy. You ain’t old enough so you can begone now with your comments! By the way, who is this chick anyway? Like I give a you know what.

20 years ago this year marked the deadly anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting. And just to think that recently, there was third shooting this year in the month of May. But guess where you asked? Denver, Colorado.

CALLOUT: This is got to be the WTF moment of the second quarter so far: why are we are just now knowing that DJ Spinderella of Salt-N-Pepa (or excuse me, FORMALLY of SNP) was fired by Email from the group?! After 30 plus years in the rap game?! Shameful! And that show Ladies Night on BET is being shown now. Seriously?! Don’t worry: Spin has her own talent and will be doing her always.

20 Democrats will be on the fence in trying to represent for the 2020 election. But which one of them would be eligible to knock off 45 in 2020?

I need to ask though, if you are looking for a job in all in your hometown, then all of a sudden you get calls from out of state that the jobs are open in a temporary basis. My question is: why are the LOCAL COMPANIES not calling the folks about the jobs in the community?!

They say we had a wacky post Winter Snow in Wisconsin. Who’s ready for Spring to like, come now?

Can anyone explain the real reason why Ebony Magazine FOLDED?! After all the publication of black folks seeing themselves in positive stories in which many didn’t want, but were published anyway to give America that black folks were in the light of positive news that many need to know!

Now: this is for all the mothers:

For all the New School Mothers – Happy Mother’s Day.

For all the Old School Mothers – Happy Mother’s Day.

For all the Mother’s that had to work and still work all day everyday: Happy Mother’s Day.

For all the mothers whom had to go back to school and get that degree many many many years later, but did it for her kids: Happy Mother’s Day!

For all the mothers that continue to teach the Boys, the Girls, the Men and Women to be productive citizens in life all the time: Happy Mother’s Day!

For all the Mothers who served this nation in uniform and earned the title of Veteran: Happy Mother’s Day.

For all the mothers that are serving this nation in uniform and earning the title of soilder, airman, shipmate, coastie, or marine: Happy Mother’s Day.

For all the mothers whom are police officers, firefighters, paramedics, nurses, doctors, engineers, mechanics, business owners, media, stockbrokers, and any other profession that is gender balanced: Happy Mother’s Day.

For all the mothers that just committed to Unions, Happy Mother’s Day

For all the Mothers whom are apart of any Sorority that is NOT on the list of Expelled Members, but paying their dues all the time for new members to join: Happy Mother’s Day!

For all the Single Mothers whom constantly push against the grain but still manage to prove others wrong: Happy Mother’s Day.

For all the Mothers whom are heaven bound, as in gone home to God and had been memorialized, funeralized, had the last rights, had the 21 gun salute and many other final goodbyes: We thank those in their memories to live on continuously!

And for all the mothers whom don’t have children. Yes, not every woman is a mother! Those whom are like mothers, and whom are just there as needed to be called upon. Yes, they too deserve a Mother’s Day also.

And to the mothers that look at my blog all the time or some of the time: yes you too, deserve a Mother’s Day. Even to all the Introverted Mothers and Dark Horse Mothers that keep the peace in times of conflict and telling the truth! And still working.

So to the Momz, Mothers, Mommies, Mami’s, Madres, Mommas, Mother Dears, Big mamas, grannies, aunties, great aunts, Godmothers, and the New Big Mamas that need transitional ideas to move forward, and many other mothers I can’t even think about: yes this is your Mother’s Day. Enjoy it!

Oh, and PS: Dad’s count too.


With the still new year in motion, it’s already being bonkers. Of course today we are removed from the first Federal Holiday in honor of Dr. King. And yeah, New Year’s Day. But in all what has 2019 has done thus far, well not much except the inaugurations and the soon to be done 2018-19 NFL Season. And the disappointing Government Shutdown that plagued the 800,000 workers. Shameful! And like many before, I’m scratching my head again.

Black folks: what about this challenge? Can this happen?

I’m assuming that all of the Divine 9 January Founder’s Day “Days” have been accounted for?

So how’re those New Year’s Resolutions holding up? Like seriously?!

Did anyone act a fool on the King Holiday? Please say no!

So…Wisconsin, how about that new Governor Tony Evers, eh?

What will be missed about the Bradley Center? Besides the empty spot of rubble?

That one weekend in Milwaukee this actually happened on January 12th and 13th: no gunshots. Can we have every weekend or every day without no gun violence?

You know that the Milwaukee Bucks are dead serious of Basketball dominance in the East, right?

Why many conservatives want to test Cardi B? Like seriously?!

It just dawned on me. Not every music artist is “woke and conscious!!!!” Why is that possible?! And who is listening to them? – Regarding R.Kelly.

Since when did Cigna and Queen Latifah hook up for annual physical PSAs for 2019?

Of all the things wild today in Milwaukee, naming rights. Why Miller Park?

It seems that the Milwaukee Streetcar haters got excited about the vehicle being stuck in all this past week. But did they know that an incorrectly parked car caused the problem?! Stupid. And no, this is where you have to defend The Hop.

Is Killer Mike’s Trigger Warning show valuable right now on Netflix?

With now the NFL playoffs set, and Championship Sunday is clear, it either the #Rams or the same ol’ Tom Brady and the #Patriots. Who you really got? Spoiler Alert: There is a shocker.

So Gladys Knight is going to sing the National Anthem for the Super Bowl. And yes we know that the song had the Third Stanza of “No heirling or refuge for a slave” lyric. And many called her to be off-limits to black cards and cookouts. On the flip side, Gladys Knight has been on the forefront way before me, the millennials, generation z, all the so-called woke and conscious revolutionary folks, and even Colin Kaepernick and his girlfriend Nessa. So why we have to question her and her choice of singing the Anthem?! And making her sing the third stanza?! What kind of “ish” is that? Man, regardless of the decision she made and it’s none of our concern, respect the elders. I’m just saying!

Just recently, there was a Black Millionaire, named Robert F. Smith that donated to an HBCU, Morehouse College in Georgia, and many black folks on the Black Enterprise Facebook Page cried foul about this. Seriously, what is the problem?!!

Did many folks display the American Flag out on the MLK Holiday? Be honest.

You realize that January 31st will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Jackie Robinson? Watch 42!

Is Kamala Harris the one we want to see as President?

Black Folks: I need us to really explain the truth about what the Black Agenda is. What is it? Why does it matter to us in regarding those we put in office?

Spike Lee at long last will be a nominated for an Oscar. Are we happy about this?

Why is the coverage of Tommy Sotomayor still alive? Dude is STRAIGHT trash!!!!

With all the #SurvivingRKelly stuff still fresh in our minds, why reopen the pandora’s box with all the stuff happened to Michael Jackson? That will not fly right. Spoiler Alert.

In all fairness, what will it retake to reopen the Government for the Federal Workers that need their checks? And to STAY OPEN? And the WALL IS NOT THE ANSWER!

In my view, the House Democrats need to go rogue and nuclear. Around the Senate, around Mitch, around 45, around the Authority of the nation’s principals to get over the shutdown and back to work. Why is this not being proposed?!

Can the Marijuana users in all be very safe after going into the stores smelling so bad?! And the same on the roads?!!
CALLOUT: For all of the African-Americans in Wisconsin: If many had complained about the lack of qualified applicants of color, which is viable so, why many of us HAD NOT APPLIED for the jobs that the Evers Administration had displayed prior to him taking office?! They were displayed online for several weeks! We complain about this and that, and when the opportunity comes up, we go on empty. And also, what’s up the black caucuses’ in Wisconsin?! Why haven’t they been used as a resource in this? No, I’m not talking about the NAACP or the National/Local Urban Leagues. I’m talking about the Black Caucuses that many don’t tap into as much in the African-American Communities. We should know!
SECOND CALLOUT: White folks, why do you have to resort being triggered when it comes to a black man or a black woman who the phrase, “my black brothers and sisters” when addressing our concern of race? Or interracial marriage? This was brought up recently!

Update on the Shutdown: it seems that the workers are getting their checks on again and working. But why only 3 weeks until February 15th?

For all of us in the Midwest, you really believe that the Polar Vortex is not a joke?

The week of January 28th will highlight the 33rd Anniversary of the Challenger Explosion of 1986. Many of us were young when that day happened. I’m talking about us Generation X folks. Just to ask, who are the fools who think that the moon landing was fake back in 1969 which that nothing to do with this at all?!

So I hear that Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching. Um….not many like valentines though. Who really does? With all the negativity of dating and folks being way too much about that one guy or girl! Or rumors.

And the FINAL QUESTION of the first Scratching My Head All The Time Blog Post of 2019: When that Covington High School student that was disrespectful just staring at the Navajo Elder on his turf, with a MAGA hat. What was his problem?! And you know that was out of bounds dealing with racism. And oh, the jury is still out on this matter after that Today show interview.

BONUS QUESTION: It seems that the hate on Terry Crews getting sexually assaulted way back when is getting a backlash. Usually from Black Men, even D.L. Hughley, and several others. When women get sexually assaulted or abused or inappropriately touched many of them and some men do go out and band together and raise hell on the dude that did the act. HOWEVER: when a Man gets sexually assaulted, no matter how long ago it was, he receives that laughing joke reaction, and gets humiliated by the male audience. Folks, when this happens in our society, what is the general common ground that stuff likes this goes on almost everytime, and it doesn’t get the same amount of respect that needed to be heard? I say this every June when Men’s Health Month comes around, with all the “Men need to go to the doctors to get checked out” speeches. BUT THIS is a health matter that Men need to be aware of and tackle with a strong Health and Wellness Foundation to improve. If this issue is bad for Men, what will it mean for the young boys who are running wild and stupid (due to DNA Samples) and many of them without setting them straight because of their dads, uncles, grandfathers, male cousins, and others are LIVING FOUL?! And women who sexually assault or abuse men, don’t get off that easily. You’re in this also!


Oh you know I’m about to go in. 2018 had me crazy! It had me on point, it had me on rotation, and it had me bugged out. But at the end of me asking these crazy questions we might understand it better. But…since this is the last Scratching my Head all this time of the year, but it’s not the last! So as we countdown to the last ticks of 2018, and we prepare for our Watch Night Services, All Night parties, and family gathering to usher in 2019, and yes to get our resolutions out of what we want to do in all: you’ve guessed it, I’m scratching my head YET AGAIN!

Alright, who remembers any of my blog posts from 10 years ago?

Did anyone really pay attention to the fact that the 45 Administration is getting punked with all the Government Shutdowns in all?

What’s up with the Bird Box?

How will the Governor-Elect Tony Evers Crew really will tame the still Republican Legislature in the first term?

For all those hated Introverts, especially BLACK Introverts, why you picked on them? Like seriously.

Will anymore Black Pastors meet with 45 in 2019 that embarrassed themselves in 2018?

So, Mutant Football League on the Nintendo Switch is making a good impression. What will it actually take for EA to get a Madden game on the system?

Most recently, I’ve seen black authors publish their books on Amazon about their Introvert experience in 2018. I need to see more. Can that happen?

Now: let’s go party.

Happy New Year!


We know that yes, Christmas is coming up. Matter of fact is coming so quick you’ll be watching “Its a Wonderful Life” over and over again like crazy. And Home Alone. And the Hallmark Christmas Shows. And those Christmas Commercials. Oh yeah, Christmas is coming with all the bells and whistles. Likewise: With all the still problems of Government Shutdowns, folks stealing packages and wrecking Black Santas, and other things that folks are somewhat conscious of in a demeaning manner, guess what: I’m scratching my head again!

What was the best Christmas Commercial of all time……IN Milwaukee?

So the infamous Scrooge of 45 is doing a Government Shut Down before the holiday. Man, what’s up with the bonuses?!

Oh, Hey December folks: Did we party or still partying?

There will be those who will try to dampen the spirit of Christmas of “exposing the truth” in all. Sigh…..so these are the boring folks with nothing to do or didn’t get enough attention growing up?

For us Sagittarians: did we shoot our arrows well in our Season of Centaurs?

What is the best Christmas Commerical right now?

Getting back to the best gifts, which was the best gift that many Wisconsin voters got?

Speaking of Scrooges: so Scott Walker had to pull a rigged stipulation to limit the governor powers of the next soon to be Governor Tony Evers and AG Josh Kaul. Anyone agree that its a farce against our democracy?
Ok, what was the best Christmas Commercial of all time in a national sense?

What crime was committed when Pastor John Gray presented his wife a Lamborghini SUV that cost about $200,000?!! What was the crime spree of this?! And this is for those who don’t do church or didn’t get the memo that the amount paid for the car WAS NOT USED BY THE CHURCH! Get your facts straight, instigators. You don’t know anything! And no, I’m not defending Pastor John Gray.

The only question I have in this so-called Government Shutdown: Where’s the Government Worker’s Christmas Bonuses that should have counted?

So Kevin Hart is not hosting next year’s Oscars all because of what he said years ago about the LGBTQ Community. Since when that became a stipulation of this? Look to my LGBTQ folks who have been hurt on that, how do you heal from this? While knowing that Kevin’s part had to be turned down?

Why do those on the international side look at American Scholarships knowing that they are NOT U.S. Citizens? Just asking for a future writer! Not to take away opportunities abound. But yes, they do have Scholarships for those who do Education abroad. Just saying.

Alright, why is Fortnite a thing now?

How do folks that are Anti-Tech going positive for Emails? Do they know that using Email is part of technology?

It’s funny though I already forgot that Christmas was fastly approaching. Has anyone felt that on a hilarious tip? We know it’s coming. Prepare for your minds to be warped!

When folks wrap the gifts, has the message already been told?

You know anyone that is gift giving is really a Santa Claus, right?

Folks, I’m getting mad at this: why many of you smell like weed in the store? I mean doesn’t matter if it’s at Walmart, Target, Pick N’ Save or any store or driving in the car and the smell from other vehicles draws a bad stench. Seriously folks, what is the real deal?!!! Clean up!

Is the WWE ready for another Christmas Eve Monday Night Raw?

Seriously asking, so is being an Introvert really getting a negative feeling of looking for jobs? As well as looking forward to the holidays?

Every company needs a Christmas Bonus rule. Yeah, I said it. What about yours?

Alright: who saw Aquaman? Or Bumblebee? Or both Aquaman and Bumblebee? Do not comment on what happens! No hints, nor clues, please. Keep it to yourselves!

Will there a be another Scratching my Head All this time blog before the year is out? Of course.

Is it really fronting to say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or Season’s Greetings? You realize that saying Happy Holidays – is a holy day. Run away, atheists.

This is the main question here: And this is for those who are so curious about it. What is it about folks looking at the Haka Dances on the internet? You know it’s not a new thing out now. Don’t even front.

Way before the Hip Hop of things merged with Christmas, which hip-hop song surged a spark for the Holiday? (Older heads, this may not be for you)

According to the United Methodist Church Website, you realized that folks have sung, signed, or played Silent Night for 200 years?

Oh, over in Oregon a black couple’s Black Santa Claus display was damaged. Racism as it’s finest. Does anyone realize that there are BLACK SANTAS that can be displayed, right?!

Easy question here: we heard the Trans-Siberian Orchestra (whom I’m just now hearing don’t judge), Run DMC, Boyz II Men (25 Years since Christmas Interpretations) The Temptations, James Brown, Jackson 5, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross, Vanessa Williams, and countless others who have given us memorable Christmas jams on rotation every season.

Hey Grinches: you realize after taking or stealing packages off of porches, you’re being really dumb right now, correct? And houses are getting security cameras with doorbells! With Cops!

Which TV shows in history has been always a Christmas feel to it? Don’t act like you know. Even some black shows had a Christmas feel to it.

This needs to be asked: why the fascination of Michelle Obama’s $4,000 boots? Asking for a friend! We all love Michelle, but just asking. Except for the haters who just hate a Black Woman Former FLOTUS on fleek.

And the last and final question on point: Kids, are you ready for Santa? (Even though it’s a creation of imagination)

Merry Christmas to all, and to all: a good reading!


Before we Americans throw down on the turkey, yeah there will be political drama at the dinner table. There will be many other factors in which we will ask the question, what are we thankful for in all. It’s also a Thanksgiving that yet the truth will bust out that some of our Ingenious Native American Folks will not partake in the holiday due to the national day of mourning. If you’re not familiar with it, research! Even you might watch football and the ongoing traditional Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade ushering the Christmas Season.

But likewise….I’m scratching my head again.

Milwaukee, how’s that streetcar thing doing? Overall, please. No Hop Haters from those who DON’T live in Milwaukee!

So it seems now that the People’s Flag and the Milwaukee Arts Board have to get back in talking about the ongoing idea of getting a new flag. We’ve all have seen it like everyday. But many will agree that the People’s Flag Folks HAVE NOT talked to the whole Milwaukee Community. Why?!

They say that the voting never mattered in the Governor’s race in Wisconsin, mainly Milwaukee. Ummmm, did anyone see the totals while yet folks complained?

Can you be a real church member and bring a level of consciousness that many might fear and still be loyal? Not talking about money in all.

Can the Wisconsin Badgers think big and quietly usher in better talent to run pistol plays? Be advised, Big Ten.

Black Woke Folks: we need to stop all this talk about getting us not to vote. And what is the reason why? Back off! Jeez!

Mostly, in that Georgia Election, the reason why Stacy Abrams lost was due to voter suppression, and I dare say: Racism. Agree or disagree?

Remember when the WWE or the WWF Survivor Series was ON Thanksgiving Day?

What will it take to get the Green Bay Packers to get red hot AGAIN?

You know that Country music has two African-American singers that are killing the scene right now. Like Kane Brown and Jimmie Allen. Heard of them? And Country Music is part of Black History!

Who still goes to the clubs and bars after the big meal on Thanksgiving to shake off the pounds?

How about those Milwaukee Bucks though?

And why did Andrew Gillum lose in Florida again, to really someone who is deemed racist?

Since November is National Veterans and Military Families Month, how really those who love our Military actually SUPPORT our Military? And how many of us really love our Veterans SUPPORT OUR VETS?!! Don’t start illing of not being a fake patriot.

When will Milwaukee EVER get their Holiday Parade…..err Christmas Parade BACK? Come on Harley-Davidson, Northwestern Mutual, Kohls, etc!

This is very disturbing: Why a fight in the Milwaukee Courthouse?

It seems that this portrait in Baraboo sparked an outrage. Of course. But what was the real reason again? Let me guess: that blasted Nazi salute and of course that got Wisconsin in a bad light yet again.

I asked this question last time and I’ll ask it again: The Hallmark Christmas Show is back. Who’s still watching them?!

No offense to the Christmas decors but, why does Thanksgiving get suddenly skipped? I’m mean HELLO! Turkey Day is missing!

This is interesting: Sagittarius Season BEGINS on Thanksgiving Day. Sags: what are we thankful for 9th house rulers?

Remember when Thanksgiving shows actually was reclaiming their time?

Men, has #movember really sunk in? After all that no shave, November thing?

International Men’s Day had come and gone. Why is this day not formally recognized again? And why are the whiny feminists of the world, still treat as this day being sexist?

Speaking of Feminism: why target Kleenex for Mansize tissues again?

Wait a minute: there is a Football Game out the Nintendo Switch? Not Madden! But how do many like the MFL? As in the Mutant Football League? Rated M but this might attract those in the think tanks to actually MAKE A FOOTBALL GAME for the Switch! Madden, or make an “NFL 2K” Sports game. I’m calling this!

Men (and women),  can we remind ourselves not to complain about International Men’s Day on International Women’s Day next year in 2019?!!!

When Thanksgiving Day is here: is it Macy’s, Football and Food? or is it Macy’s, Food then FOOTBALL?

When Thanksgiving is over, and for many of us who do not work on a Friday, why is it necessary for those who work on Thanksgiving have to start the Black Friday sales all early?

Speaking of Black Friday: NO SHOPPING FOR ME! But who will be the idiot of the moment when engaging in others for stuff on sale in a violent physical bloodbath? It’s bound to happen. You know it!

Speaking of Small Business Saturday: Who will actually shop locally? No national stuff!

Speaking of Cyber Monday: Best online deals right now. Who has it?

Speaking of Giving Tuesday: Who will donate? To Schools, Organizations, Alumni, Church Groups, Fraternity, Sorority, Legion, etc?

I don’t get it. Since the victory of the recent Wisconsin midterm election, there might be some folks from the black community might call out the new administration of not being diverse enough. My question is: why aren’t many who are complaining (i.e. Facebook and Twitter) not applying?!!

Will Creed II be a hit?

In the last 100 seasons, how many games the Packers won on Thanksgiving? I know, I know. They got archives.

Yes, there was a time that the Native Americans were slaughtered outside after a church service on a Sunday, and years later it was dubbed as the National Day of Mourning. A real question: do many today know that part of the history?

Who might fill up the table that once was occupied by those who passed on?

Who will fill up the table and set a new tone for the big dinner?

And the last question before: how REALLY thankful are you? Like really?

Happy Thanksgiving!
