Nah, sis. You're just being ig'nant!

I can tell most of you have never been to jail. I have more than once. First time I was a teen without a care in the world. Second time, I was a wife and mother of two. My youngest baby was still a newborn.Titty milk was still leaking from my boobs. And while I was in there for less than twenty-four hours the second time, that ish damn near drove me mad.
To be away from my kids and not know one way or the other when I was going to be released and to be locked in with women who bragged about stabbing, beating, and hurting other people for fun? The guards didn't give two shits that I was in there for a non-violent offense. They didn't give a sh*t about me wanting to call my husband and check on my kids. They treated my black arse just like they treated the women who were in there for doing mess I will never be wild or crazy enough to do.
It was then I realized that while I was willing to throw hands, I was in no way a young woman with nothing to lose anymore. Being away from my babies damn near drove me mad. I'm not about to risk that again unless my child(ren)'s lives are in danger or someone is threatening their persons.
People are going to talk. People on FB talk shit day in and day out. You can't run up on everyone because your feelings are hurt. You can't run up on people because they "said" something about your kids. That's not protecting them, sis. Their lives weren't in danger. That's a felony. That's assault. And if you run up on the right one, that's bodily harm or a stand your ground defense waiting to happen depending on the state. So now you're either in jail with a felony charge or dead. How does this help your child(ren)?
I'm just ranting. I ain't got all the answers. Some days i ain't shit like the rest of you, but sometimes, I got some sense and shit.
Also, I write books! Check out my Amazon page and pick out whatever tickles your fancy!

Black Film Review: Only 4 One Night

So last night/early this morning, I had the unfortunate chance to watch the movie Only 4 One Night, starring Brian White and Karrueche Tran. It was over an hour of my life that I can't get back. To make matters worse, I was in the kitchen pouring myself some libations when the opening credits were rolling so I didn't get to see that child molester, Chris Stokes, had directed this movie. I didn't find that out until after the fact. The premise goes a little something like this: Brian and Karrueche are happily married, the perfect couple. Karrueche's sister suffers a great loss, ends up in their guest room. Karrueche has to leave to go support her and Brian's son. The sister is left with the husband...and you know where this is going. But listen, the movie was basically a rip off of all the other movies about crazy women becoming obsessed with men after sex or just becoming plane ol' obsessed. If you've seen Obsessed, Single White Female, Hand that Rocks the C…

Coming soon: Tell Me No More

“He’s getting married!”
“What?”
“Jamie… he’s getting married,” I repeated frantically.
There was a wild look of panic in my eyes, I was sure. My whole world seemed to be crashing down around me. Nothing prepared me for the news that the man I still loved was about to walk down the aisle and make another woman his wife. Kay had to catch me in her arms before my legs gave out on me. For four years I’d been trying to come to grips with the fact that I’d let a good man get away.
Jamie and I had been together for almost two years before I’d cheated on him with my son’s father’s best friend. I’d met Jamie while I was head over heels in love with Aric. Even after finding out Aric was married, I held on to hope that he and I could be together. That was until his wife, Stephanie, tried to kill me and my son while I was pregnant with him. Even then, it took a while for me to see that Aric and I just weren’t meant to be together.
I finally saw that Jamie was the man I needed. Everything was g…

A Review (finally): Acrimony

I finally watched the movie Acrimony...

I want everyone who said that Taraji had no reason to be mad or snap to tell me why you feel that way?

Because listen...

That man cheated on her, used her money until she had not a dime left, had her carry the financial weight of their whole marriage for over twenty damn years. She begged and pleaded with this man to get a job and help her. Begged and pleaded...

This woman was tired. And YET, she worked and worked and worked in order for him to sit home and work on his craft.

Finally, after draining the damn life out of her, he gets on. His invention gets picked up, after she leaves him.

After she says enough is enough is when his ship comes sailing in. He then gets with another woman who knew someone who knew someone... She pulled some strings to get him put on.

THE SAME DAMN WOMAN HE CHEATED ON HER WITH ALL THOSE YEARS AGO!

He gives Taraji ten-million-dollars and buys her mama house back that she lost because of him.

All of this after over twent…
