Black Jesus

Filed in Everwhatever

I told myself I wasn’t gonna write about this, but that seems to be the first indication that I’m going to wind up writing about something. Everybody knows that there has been some controversy surrounding The Passion because of some possible anti-Semitic content. My personal belief is that the viewer will see whatever he or [...]

Why is it that when I first told people that I got a bass/was learning how to play the bass, they called the name of some Black guy who plays rock music? One of my friends was like, Darius Rucker! Another was like, Lenny Kravitz! I mean, there’s nothing wrong with either one of those, [...]

What’s Happenin’

Filed in Everwhatever

I saw the 3 disc set of the first season of “What’s Happenin’.” Best believe I’m coppin’ it ASAP. I think I even saw the 2nd season of “Good Times.” If so, I’ll be coppin’ that soon, too. I just need to find out what episode James died, so I can be sure not to [...]

The Passion

Filed in Everwhatever

I went and saw The Passion yesterday. It’s intense. Very graphic; extremely visceral. My take is that it’s not a movie that you see with other people; not for believers, at least. When you see something like that, the main thing you realize is that it was for you. That’s what makes it so hard [...]

Tupac?

Filed in Everwhatever

Allow me to be one of the few to say that when it comes to the canonization of Tupac, I just don’t get it. Was Pac nice? Yes…sometimes. Was Pac the nicest? Not by miles. So my question has always been, when professors started using hip-hop in the classromo, what made them pick him? Sure, [...]

Black History Month [Sho' Nuff!]

Filed in Everwhatever

With all due respect to Dr. Carter G. Woodson, I’m about done with Black History Month. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think that it’s no longer necessary for America to highlight the contributions of Black people, I just don’t think Black History Month is the right means of dissemination. And while I understand and [...]

Black History Month [teaser]

Filed in Everwhatever

A couple weeks ago, LaShawn Barber wrote a very interesting piece about Black History Month. I commented on it a few times myself, but I still have some more to say about it, so I figured I will weigh in on the matter myself. Not right now, though. I don’t have too much time, though. [...]

College Dropout

I’m just tryin’ to say the way school need teachers the way Kathy Lee needed Regis, that’s the way I need Jesus. Kanye West – “Jesus Walks.”

The Eagles

Filed in Everwhatever

I kept telling myself I wasn’t going to say anything about this, but I can’t help it. Free agency is coming up and if Andy Reid doesn’t get Donovan some help at WR, I’m defecting to the Colts or something. Not that it makes any difference, but I swear…I can’t take it any more. I [...]
