did Joe Biden, a usually stand up Democrat
from Delaware, put his foot in his mouth
when he made comments about Barack Obama's
appearance recently? Campaigning is just
starting up and people are already digging
is it that only in Philadelphia does Comcast
get to monopolize the Philadelphia Sixers,
Flyers and Comcast Sportsnet so the Satellite
subscribers can't get it? Those two teams
need all the help and support they can
doesn't have the people in this country
know who's running for President of the
United States on the Republican Party
side of things?
did Andy Reid's two sons get to sit at
home and await charges? One son, Garrett,
admitted he used heroin, drove a car,
ran a red light and crashed into a vehicle
and the vehicle had drug paraphernalia.
While the other, Britt (in an unrelated
incident), got into an argument with another
driver and pulled a handgun out the car
in a case off road rage? If they didn't
have privilege (let's not even go into
the race factor) wouldn't they been locked
up five minutes after the police came
on the scene?
are we denying people health care and
respectable pay education and wondering
why people are killing each other everyday?
are people still talking, writing and
doing large programs about a horse named
Barbaro rather than focusing on people
dying, issues affecting the community
and other ills of our society? I would
say the same thing for the Super Bowl
or anything getting more press but a horse
is especially sad! I don't say
that because I don't value the life of
the horse but because human life is treated
at a lesser standard.
do parents expect their kids to know what
work is when they have everything given
to them? There are more kids out in the
world that think that PS2s, TVs and cell
phones are needs not wants and some parents
need to look in the mirror and blame themselves.
does the most of the media only give you
a few pictures of beauty instead of promoting
the diversity of humanity? Beyonce and
Halle Berry (both light skinned African
Americans) can't be the only women of
color worth taking pictures of can they?
Can the dark skinned sisters get some
love! Not everyone has to have the same
features to be considered pretty in the
eyes of the media. I know I may be exaggerating
a bit but I get tired of the same people
getting props because it affects some
people who think the only way to look
good is to try and look like those regularly
shown, praised and complemented people.
did it take 39 Super Bowls for one Black
head coach to win a Super Bowl let alone
two playing in one? There is still so
much work to do in sports and society
as a whole and the fact that this was
news is pathetic.
does money hold more value to some than
that of family friends and community?
We need to kill (no pun intended) this
culture that says money mean more that
humans. It's hard but it starts with you!
Make that change!
