Can You Escape The Hood By Doing Hood Things?

Can you escape the hood by doing hood things?

This morning I was thinking about all the people I know who tried to escape the hood by lying, stealing and hustling.

These folks thought they had all the answers and did not listen to anyone.  Years ago they were the best dressed, very popular, and drove the hottest cars.  It looked like they had the world in the palm of their hands.

 I have run into some of these people and I was very surprised that some of them are homeless.  They outwitted themselves and now they didn't have anyone to turn to.

Fast money is fast death and you cannot escape your environment by doing foul things.  You may escape for a short time but you will not sleep well at night and you will have to constantly look over your shoulder.

You will not be able to trust your friends because when you are living this way, you really don't have any friends and you will lose self-respect.

Taking shortcuts will lead to problems further down the road.

What Exactly Is Talking White Or Acting White?

There are a lot of misconceptions regarding African American people who talk proper English.  They are often called Oreo's, talking white, sell-outs and etc.

Some people grow up in different environments or they are exposed to people of different races.  I have some in my family who so-called "talk white" and they are not trying to sell-out at all.

My family members are very proud African Americans and many are. You do not know what people go through who grow up in mostly white neighborhoods, you will definitely not forget who you are and where you come from, that is for sure.

We have a tendency to put our people in a box that they don't belong in just because of your uneasiness.  It is no disgrace to use proper English.

All of us are not the same, talk to a person so you can get to know them and you can build great friendships.  It is unfair to make judgments based on a manner of speech.

Judge people by their character only!

When you are not in a relationship it is easy to sit around and mope.  A lot of times you will not take care of yourself and your appearance.  Not being in a relationship doesn't mean that you just give up on life.

There are some wonderful things that you can get pre-owned.

There are some wonderful things that you can get pre-owned.

When we hear of anything pre-owned we automatically think about the neighborhood thrift store that is dark and you have to search amongst loads of clothes to get to the good stuff.

You think about all the time that you are wasting and you could be doing something else or just go to your neighborhood retailer and purchase exactly what you want.

You could also be a person who loves going to thrift stores but you do not have time after work to stop at your local thrift store.

Pre-owned clothing retailers such as Current Boutique have the answer to your problems because they will give you choices.  Choices to purchase high-quality designer clothes you can purchase online.

Their prices are very good.  Right now it looks like they carry smaller sizing but please check out their website to see what is available. Current Boutique




Here are some of the things that they carry.

Tina Turner Is Such An Inspiration.

I just finished watching "What's Love Got To Do With It" for the umpteenth time and each time I am in tears and feel her pain but her strength was incredible because it took a lot for her to leave her marriage.

She was able to move forward and her career and life were better than ever.  It is a great movie and every woman and man who is being abused should see it. #Dontstaystuck #Moveforward #Itisgoingtobeallright #Godisable.

The time is now to make a lasting change in your life!

Sir, Why Are You So Negative???

Recently, I was at an event and it was a married couple there and the husband said something very negative to his wife and I thought I was going to fall out of my chair.

I will not repeat what he said but it was a reference to her looks and her as a woman.  She didn't say anything back to him because obviously, it is something that he normally does.

Mind you, this man is not Prince Charming himself and he should never say that to his wife.  On the other hand, his wife is beautiful, she has large doe eyes and they are really striking.

I am quite sure his wife spoke to him at home about this. What I am going to say regarding this, don't do this to your wife or any other person, have some respect and some class.

Mrs, please keep yourself up because when you don't men notice.  It still doesn't excuse his behavior but don't let him see you slipping. 

Fix yourself up and if he doesn't improve, then maybe you should consider making permanent changes in your marriage.
