Things that make upset in the community

...the continued fad of saggin pants
...proceating with known dead beat dads
...having expensive and tricked out cars while living in the hood or with yo mama
...how folk be tawkin like dey don't know no bedda
...showing up at your childs school looking a triple hot mess
...having money to get your hair and nails did, but fuss that baby doesn't have any milk/pampers
...spending more money on material things (bling, cars, clothes etc.,) and not on things that promote wealth (education, stability, upward mobility etc.,)
...keeping up with your vehicles scheduled maintenance and not on your health
...blaming your obesity on being big-boneded
...putting Tims, Jordans, or other expensive shoes on a baby that can't walk
...doing nothing to uplift your community, but complain that the other folk have this or that
...women who dress scantily clad and gyrate to mysogonistic lyrics and then complain about being stepped to some kind of way
...teaching our children to be grown and then fuss them out for "acting grown"
...knowing lyrics to all the horrible songs out there, but not know the schoolwork
...being able to do the latest dance, but can't pass a fitness test
...speaking Ebonics and such is NOT proper English
Love to live; live to love!

Yes girlfriend. That blog was better than hot sex on a platter. I love it all, but especially when you talk about putting them expensive shoes on children that can't even walk and then darn saggy pants. I told my son that I ain't raising no thug and he will not have no prison-like mentality; so he knows not to even try me. You said the darn thing very well.

Amen, amen & amen!

Can I be "thick" instead of "big-boneded?"

@ All - It's nice to know that I have others who share these sentiments. It's appalling how we conduct ourselves even after many pledged to change once Obama got in office. Oh, the lies and deception.

@ Keith & Carey - Y'all don't have any gosh dang sense at all. Too funny!

Agrees that Black Embarassment T.V once again how well coonfuggery can run rampant.

I was surely going to add Bafoonery Entertainment Television to the list, but I see someone beat me to it. Great list.
