Bad Mamas?


On CNN it appeared a story of a single mother Debra Harrell who left her 9 year old child alone in the park while she was working at McDonalds. The reactions of a lot of commentators bellow the story were mostly blatant against this working mom “neglect” towards her own child without understanding why she choose to “leave” the child. But there’s a lot of profoundness in this story as any other.

For example, as usual the race factor. Society has always vilify Black Women as lazy, selfish and neglectful towards their own kids. The motto “they rather take care of themselves than taking care of their own kids” has been stuck with us like crazy glue. But sadly it doesn’t applies to Caucasian women in that aspect. Mostly, they’re the most loving, pure and responsible towards their own children and their men. But when cases like child neglect comes into the view of the Caucasian mother, they just feel pity. But in a case like a hard working single mother who worked paycheck to paycheck to keep a roof under her head while taking care of her child, for one single “mistake” of leaving the kid in the park alone by herself under the hot weather, society wants the mother’s head, and leaving the child under worst treatment under foster care.

It seems absurd that for only the issue of not being able to provide child care for this child, she’s entitled to jail time and an unmerciful attack by the social media. Instead, first from her former employer McDonalds instead of firing her, they should help her in getting an affordable child care for her kid. Or create programs and incentives for working moms to afford child care. Not firing her! Second, for the people in the park, instead of pointing fingers and judging her for her “bad parenting skills” they should examine themselves too. There’s no perfect parent these days, and surely they made this issue like Mrs. Harrell is the worst person in the community she lives in and deserves to be life without parole in jail. Perhaps, they think that leaving their kids with iphones and tablets is good parenting. Third, enough with the black women are the scum of the earth crap! There’s a lot of Black Mothers out there that they will sacrifice themselves for their child’s wellbeing. And for that, they’re raising good men and women in the end. NOT GHETTO HOES AND CRIMINALS!

But not all is lost. After, her arrest, a lawyer Robert Verner Phillips who took this case as pro-bono, is defending her case. And she’s back with her daughter but unemployed. A fund for her has been placed on YouCaring.com to help deal with the costs of child care and other expenses until her case is cleared and her name clean to start over. This nightmare for this struggling single mother who have been judged unfairly has to end.

Another thing… Does Child Services removed Victoria Wilcher from her neglectful and selfish single mother and grandparents?

Another news…

Another single mother rejected by Social Services in North Carolina have her five children taken away to foster care because she post an ad on Craiglist for shelter for her and her five kids. In their opinion by a “Social Worker” it was inappropriate because “Child Molesters” or “Murderers” can answer it. Well, sadly this kids are going to child molesters or murderers on Foster Care instead.

I Fought China… and USA won!


Many business, thanx to NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) and WTO (World Trade Organization), closed their doors to export their services to other countries specially China for cheap, “fast” labor and earn more profits without having to pay a huge load of taxes and “liabilities.” By this, many small cities that used to boost the economy, ceased to exist leaving hundreds unemployed and without any help to get back on their feet causing these small towns to big cities to crumble (Remember Detroit, Flint?). But thankfully there’s one guy who didn’t bulge into that mold and instead investigate close enough to what’s the secret behind going into these China factories and drew a verdict that shocked a community of Virginia.

Tom Bassett, a furniture factory owner decided to keep his company, his employees against the flow and choose that it’s not worth it to go for that strategy. Instead, he along with his fellow furniture owners file a complaint to the US International Trade Commission by simply charging Chinese manufacturers with dumping, crappy products and then selling less than the cost of production. In other meanings, the Chinese have been paying peanuts compared to pay American Employees what’s they’re worth. And it ain’t rocket science. First of all when it comes to furniture, designing and creating furniture it takes a lot of skilled subjects like Math, to make the perfect piece of furniture. Human hands cannot substitute robots in that area, since you feel the craftsmanship and the quality of the product as real with feeling as you can get. Second of all you have to protect your employees against accidents, something that China lacks off since these “employees” are replaceable with no benefits or help to get through in case of accident which companies “save.”

Bassett, visited a factory that made knockoffs of the furniture, to pretend that he’s interested in having their factory work for him. And the rest is History, he complain, he stood up and won keeping his employees and his company he holds dear. This is my friends a very definition of being an American. Companies should let this be an example that yes, a company can be saved by the cheap regulations and labor and produce jobs in their own town and city without sacrificing the quality and their identity that consumers are identified with. Let’s all support companies that are making products in the US!

When My Black Brothers Hate Me


Omay Farlane:

This is a post from Black Millennial Musings that really infuriates me to the core, about an announcement of recruiting all girls from 18-30 from all ethnicity, shapes and sizes. What’s really pissed me off is what Hollywood denigrates women of color to Class C and D like the worst of the low. I will never support this movie because it denigrates women of color, period. Black women should unite and demand our dignity and respect we all truly deserve.

Originally posted on Black Millennial Musings:

Today, a casting call for the highly-anticipated N.W.A. movie “Straight Outta Compton” was posted on the Internetz for all the world to see. The post called for girls of all shapes, sizes, and colors. As diverse and inviting such a notion could be, it was clear that a celebration of female diversity wasn’t in the works. Take a look…

Casting Call

That’s right. Categorizing women from Type A to Type D, light-skinned, racially ambiguous, big booty women were rated “hottest of the hottest,” while dark skinned women were relegated to the lowest of the low.

Infuriating doesn’t express my angst. Exasperation barely captures my annoyance with *some* Black men and their subservience to white dominance. Pity and shame nearly espouses my convictions towards the Black men who perpetuate white supremacy by devaluing the beauty of Black womanhood.

Black women know the struggles we face. From our hair to our looks, we’re constantly poked…

Size Discrimination


There’s a lot of discrimination going on. But I never heard of a word “Size Discrimination” until a girl from Chillocothe, Ohio has her Instagram account removed because of her photos with just underwear might “offend” a lot of people and also “violate” their community guidelines. Samm Newman was bullied all her life because of being overweight to the point that she dreads going to take showers until she decided to accept herself because of all the support online at college. She decided to post photos on Instagram to boost her confidence, until her account was removed for this photo and any others.

Ok, here’s the deal about this. There’s a double standard with Instagram regarding what’s acceptable and what’s disgusting. I’m by society standards, FAT. But do I show myself in underwear and flaunt my imperfections to the media to have confidence? NOPE! Some women out there doesn’t know how modesty and respect is. They think that showing themselves in underwear or wear nothing at all represent empowerment. Empowerment means that you cover it up, involve in helping others and participate in programs that can help themselves in raising their self-esteem like for example, develop a hobby. I for example, do photography and play video games and broadcast it on twitch, but I don’t have to prove to society that being FAT deserve more attention by showing it up in swimsuits or underwear. Hell, NO! Another thing, if Instagram deleted Samm’s account they should do the same with other accounts that shows the other side of being skinny.

As for Instagram, they apologize for their mistake and restore her account but the damage is already done for this girl. I know her confidence is a little bit shaken by the whole snafu by Instagram, but it’s Instagram’s fault that instead of deleting accounts that aren’t healthy to watch for example, anorexia and also so-called celebrities posting themselves nude in suggestive poses they deleted an account that isn’t famous at all.

 

 

Out of Context


On this July Edition of the Male Magazine Esquire, Tom Junod wrote a column named “In Praise of 42 Year-Old Women” about how males their age are “pleasant” with being with near middle aged women. The column is rather honest in specifying that men look at a woman in her forties like a model who does Pilates and Yoga and can be rather aggressive and domineering in her choices. So, why Tom Junod wrote this short article about women in their 40′s are Fuckable by male standards? Are we’re looking for sympathy and pity to be fucked? I think, men are sadly tired of looking at young naive ignorant bubble head dolls and are going for “leftovers.” And it sounds rather offensive because still men are searching for a model instead of a real woman with all imperfections.

Lisa Solod in response of Junod’s column wrote “8 Things Middle-Aged Women Think About Far More Than Whether They’re Still Fuckable By Middle Aged Men” blasted Junod and in honest candor explains that Middle Aged women have a lot of issues in their mind to worry about than getting a man in bed such as their Parents, Health, their Kids (if any), Friends, their partners or lovers, if they have enough time to do the things they do, ect. It’s a major review that women these days, have baggage, and in order to get to the fuckable part, you must deal with her wrinkles, love handles, flabby parts and their mental and emotional state. But not only that, Solod gives Junod the middle finger for writing such a misogynist article. But wait a minute here! Solod is exaggerating the whole deal by posting on her twitter account that:

 

Ok, it was just one writer who post this, not a group of chauvinist men who decided to write it. Second, it’s exaggerated that all men are going to catch any 42 year woman and have fun fucking. And third, why the drama? If a man chooses a middle aged woman isn’t because she’s doing Pilates or Yoga and looks good for her age, it’s because of her personality besides all the obstacles the man have to go through to get her. Men sure likes the challenge! The sex part comes second. Why the whole issue of sex have to come first for men who wants Middle Aged Women? Are you both guys think for men and women decisions regarding companionship and sex?

But to end this, these people are taking it like naive school children who needs a time out. Time out from Feminism and time out from MGTOW (Men Go Their Own Way), the world and genders could be in a better place.

Autotune Them NOT!


Recently there’s a huge controversy with diminishing pop star Britney Spears over a “leaked” version of one of the songs from her album Britney Jean, “Alien” in which shows the artist sang without the help of autotune. Honestly, it’s horrible! But comparing the final product of the song with the leaked it makes me think about these types of jackasses are honestly ripping off stealing people’s money because of cheating software that can “help” them sing good. And obviously the producer of the album William Orbit was defending the track explaining that it was just a warm up before the real recording took place.

I’m sorry but based on that, I’m really don’t believe a crappy thing this guy says, just because he’s between receiving a paycheck and hitting rock bottom because of that snafu of a disaster of a album that he helped. Meanwhile there’s tons of artists that will sing with extraordinary voice and talent being thrown out of the window because of defects after another. Record producers are just interested in the sex appeal than what the artist talent can contribute in society. I can’t believe that fans are being duped into thinking she have a great voice when all she did was lipsynching. And she’s not the only one who does that. How about Beyonce for example? And any other so-called pop star that think that pretending to sing equals big bucks.

Honestly there should to be a law that autotune or any voice enhancing software would be prohibited to ensure the quality of the product they’re trying to sell and to earn the trust of consumers around the world. Not only it will help their business but it will help the artists to be more honest with their product or projects they’re promoting. Otherwise we’re gonna have to test who sings for real and who’s using this atrocious software and sadly there’s not a lot of people who have a good ear.
