I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     Look at this photo. Because transporting millions of people to take them to “religion” is way easier than transporting a religion to millions of people….
Ugh.  Well I just feel guilty and disrespectful for being an atheist after all this Truth & Enlightenment has been thrust uponst me this mornin.  My ancestors died so I could be washed in the blood of European crimes against humanity for profit Our Lord Jesus, and here I go ignoring the Bible and denying the existence of a belief system solidified and bastardized by White people to conform to Western ideals and traditions.  How dare I. 
No but really.  I’ll never understand why Black people have clung so fervently to a faith that was forced upon us and used to justify our enslavement.  They broke us with chains and chained us to the Bible.  Four hundred years later and we still can’t find the damned key.

     Neighborhood Watch.

There is an old Black man wearing a beige linen shortset and Ol’ Playa-Playa sandals in front of my building cleaning out his Lexus and blaring a mix of Stephanie Mills, Phyllis Hyman, and Deniece Williams.

And that’s why I still live in Harlem.

     Loud Black people on the subway.

On my way to work this morning, I was sitting on the 3 train watching last night’s Game of Thrones with my headphones in when I was distracted by this guy who started rapping.  Loudly.  Almost at the top of his lungs.

     Have you heard about ABC’s new show Blackish set to come out this fall?

tisjunette asked me that last night and I hadn’t heard a blip about it.

But now I have.  And I’ve watched a couple of videos.  AND I AM SO FRIGHTENED!!!

     Your black auntie is here.

She’s last, but she finally made it to the family reunion carrying a bowl of potato salad because she swears hers is the best and she can’t eat just anybody’s potato salad. Actually, she can’t eat just anybody’s food — period — because she doesn’t know how everybody else keeps house. She also has packets of hot sauce in her purse (right between those peppermint candies, a trial size hand lotion, a pack of tissues, and a mini perfume stick of White Diamonds) just in case the food ain’t seasoned quite right.

     Countess Vaughn let her scalp ooze for 6 months before ditching the wigs.

And now she’s crying about it on Dr. Oz.  I’m sorry Kim Parker, but I can’t co-sign this stupidity regardless of how many tears come out of your face.  You had pus.  Coming out of your scalp.  For 6 months.  And you kept wearing that lacefront.  I just…I’m tired of y’all passing this story around commenting about how bad you feel for her.
