miz & woman - thanks for sharing your thoughts and it seems like we're all like minded.

I dislike it when people say one thing and do another or mean another :)

Mr.Slish said...

The current state of black music is an understatement...IT SUCKS...But I have found the cure. I figured out for every 5 artist there is 1 that stays true to themselves I focus more on them..Here are a few if you don't already know..

Eric Roberson

Dwele

Raheem Devaugn

Amel Larrieaux(think that's how its spelled)

Joy Denalane

Darien Brockington

Jazzy Jeff

Choklate

L' Renee

The list goes on..You can go to I Tunes and put any of those names in and just listen..Tell me what you think...

"Positive discussion over controversial issues"

You should pat yourself on the back for that one. Most folk can’t do it—me included. However, if you’re giving an online class please sign me up!

Blu, what are you doing trying to lose 10 pounds? Where do you need to lose it at? I'm wondering.

Positive discussion where controversy lies is the bomb. It may not hit home then, but it definitely manifest itself down the line.

That's right, take chances every now & then.

Nothing like having someone in your corner, whether you are right or wrong.

People who refuse to stand for something will fall for anything. They will learn.

Are you talking about me when you say people who say one thign and do another? Are you? lol.

Rosemarie - positive discussion over controversial issues is what sparks people to really think and address issues instead of passively going with the flow. I'll certainly sign you up when classes begin.

Don - what pix have you seen to say I don't need to lose 10lbs? I'll send you a registration form when I have a "class" for discussion over a controversial topic. Stepping out of our zones isn't easy, but the more I do it, the more I enjoy it. Gotta have those few ride or die folk. No, crazy man, I'm NOT talking about you unless you have a guilty conscious.

eb - I thought I'd get some flack for 4 & 5 of my likes. nice to know i'm not the only one.
