Holiday Rants


Black folks have a way of annoying my soul. Yes, I’m black. I GET THAT YOU ARE PRO BLACK, ALL BLACK EVERYTHING. IF YOU AREN’T AWAKE, YOUR LOST KIND OF BLACK FOLKS.  

Many holidays come throughtout the year and it never fails someone gotta come out and this holiday ain’t for us, its for white folks, it’s a pagan holiday, you brainwashing your kids and all that jazz. You say it every holiday, every year we get it. Some people choose to celebrate and that’s their right, so can they live? Seriously?! If you don’t we know why, but it doesn’t you have to press people to do what you choose to do. That’s like forcing someone to believe your religious beliefs. We are all different people and we can make decisions for ourselves. Why can’t you respect our views be it right or wrong?

A person can be supporting black owned business, informed on things and bettering the black communities but has decided to celebrate the holidays of their choosing. Doesn’t that make anyone less black than you?

Why can’t  we do what our parents do, celebrate what they want and when the children are educated on the truth of the holiday choose at that point whether or not they want to continue to celebrate it. Or is that something white people do? 

Happy Kwanzaa

I think I finally got in the holiday mood. It took me long enough right?! Lmao, I finally ordered my son’s gifts and I have to pick them up. My daughter’s cash is ready to go, I just need to get her card.

Insert the Black Family Christmas Anthem…

Act like y’all don’t know. Lmao. I know some of y’all was singing it!! Probably got the CD on lock or at least have it save on the laptop.

Anyways, I’m not cooking a big meal, partly because I’m broke and no one is coming to my house. LOL, if I wasn’t broke I’d probably cook a big dinner. But I guess I will do a big breakfast for my crew. I’m debating on whether or not going to the movies is an option. So before I forget I would like to wish you all a Happy Holidays, however you choose to celebrate it!!

From my family to yours…

On Christmas

“People making lists, buying special gifts,
Taking time to be kind to one and all
It’s that time of year when good friends are near,
And you wish you could give more than just presents from a store

Why don’t you give love on Christmas Day
Oh even the man who has everything
Would be so happy if you would bring
Him love on Christmas Day,
No greater gift is there than love” ~ The Temptations “Give Love On Christmas Day”

Yes, I’m really trying hard to get myself in the Christmas spirit. This is the first time, I’m last minute shopping and I’m just not there yet. I could say it’s because I lost my mom last year around Thanksgiving. Maybe, but I gotta get myself in the mood. Maybe, when I start wrapping gifts.

My daughter is older and all she wants is money. My son doesn’t understand Christmas yet, so he won’t be excited either. I’m still getting him gifts, I will probably be more excited than them both. I will make a big breakfast and even cook dinner as well.

Are you in the Christmas spirit?

So we snuck a show in the mix, because we really wanted to talk about Christmas. We know that not everyone celebrates its and we wanted to open a platform where it could be discussed.

We hope you guys enjoy the show and feel free to share your thoughts. The plan behind this was/is to open up a mature discussion.
