    Default Cultural Thoughts of a Random Nature...



    I know this isn't a new concept but we have "Random Nappurtal/Loc Thoughts" so why not? I figured we all have random thoughts pertaining to cultural issues and this is the place to post 'em! The posts don't have to lead into heavy debates/discussions--just a fun way to vent/ask/ponder a few things.



    I'll go first:

    1. What if Obama were a darkskinned man; would he have made it this far?

    2. What if Barack was the same but Michelle were a white woman?

    3. Were there any positive things that came from the Hurricane Katrina tragedy? I know entire families died and were displaced, homes were lost and property destroyed but did any good come out of such a loss? Were there success stories from anyone who survived?

    4. What are we gonna do when Oprah's gone? I know she'll still have a satellite station but she won't be in the homes of the general public. What then? Can anyone really take her place?

    5. Wonder what Nick Cannon & Mariah's babies will look like...

    6. Jackson 5 reality TV show? Really?

    7. What if Dreads were allowed throughout the Armed Forces? (Navy, Air Force, Marines,etc.)

    ...Can't wait to hear your RANDOM Cultural thoughts...

    I've got a few more...



    Why is BET getting whacker and whacker and more whack each day?

    TV is definetly becoming more and more diverse! I can tell because Wendy Williams is the 2nd successful black drag queen to have a show!

    I knew Monica was from the ATL and she does speaks like she's got some sense but I had no idea she was so country!

    Keyshia Cole is pregnant? I didn't know! I'm late....

    I wonder if all second generation immigrants have cultural clashes....or do they just abandon one for the sake of the other?

    People talk about white privilege like it's the problem in race discussions. I don't think it is. I think cultural arrogance is, across the board.

    President Barack Obama is so darn likable and really the people's president, but he needs to keep his behind off of David Letterman. Boo. Not classy.

    It's funny how having a black president makes all of my cultural blah blah blah from five years ago seem completely irrelevant. Is it, though? Really?

    Question Omg!!!!!

    What keisha cole is pregnant???? talk aboout not getting out, I don't have cable since my second son was born "can't afford it". I'm happy for her I wonder who the b.daddy iz??? And I felt like bet was boring when I had cable waaay back when. I refused to let my oldest watch it, he was about four or five at the time because I felt as if it was one big soft porn channel with all the butts, and boobs, I even had to look away. Now to the if the president was dark skinnned?? hmmmmmm... I think he probably be in office, I feel like he is there because of the younger generation anyways. they believe in him and I do to. But if the brother marrried a white girl he would not have had a vote for me. speaking from the heart. but then again who else would have I voted for???? or would I have voted at all. good topics.

    How come no matter what they say or do, no matter how bad or stupid, white people are always given the benefit of the doubt and excused and defended?

    Default So what if he is a muslin???

    I get so sick of hearing white folk trashing Obama when Bush was given free reign to screw up the country without them so much as batting an eyelash.

    Is it possible they could equally embrace both? I know it would probably be a struggle to find a balance between home and friends but with some effort it could probably be accomplished.

    I know. But for a lot of the people I know, the clashes are unintentional - such a certain believe or something they do, or some thing they don't do.

    And I'm ashamed at my own assumption that the British curlies website would be full of afros. NP got me forgetting I'm a minority. English people have curly hair too!
