The Power of the P.U.S.S.Y Indeed.

 Over this past week, several members of the Secret Service were involved in a scandal involving prostitutes in Columbia, South America. Its amazing to me that men who are so close to the President of the United States and aware of the potential fallout their behavior could cause would still engage in this behavior. I mean they had to stop and think about getting caught right.....wrong!!!. Men don't think about getting caught when good ole vagina is in front of us; its all about the mission at hand. What's even crazier is that according to reports, the situation got sticky when one Secret Service member decided that he didn't have to pay one of the prostitutes. You can't get a haircut and not pay your barber, next time he might push your hairline back a few years. You can't receive counseling from a psychologist and not make that co payment, next time they won't let you in their office. You can't buy weed and not pay your drug dealer, next time they might, well no need to explain what might happen. These are services that are provided by one person and received by another and the same rules apply to prostitution. Prostitution is one of the oldest profession and is a billion dollar industry. In Christianity, Mary Magdalene was identified as being a prostitute as well as a disciple of Jesus. She was also on of the first people to see Jesus after his resurrection, I wonder if Jesus....let me stop. Seriously though, prostitution has its cemented place in history. In modern times, public figures have been involved in scandals with prostitutes. Lawrence Taylor a married man was publicly humiliated when he was involved in sex with a minor who was forced in to prostitution. Former Governor of New York, Elliot Spitzer was victim to the lure of fast sex when he was exposed for being involved in high end prostitution, like $5,000 a pop high end. And now there is this recent scandal. Prostitutes have immense leverage and are willing to use it when they need to. Powerful men and married men come to them for a quick fix to their sexual frustration, overlooking the possibility of getting caught. I'm lead only to believe that pussy is a powerful, powerful thing to make men risk their careers and image. Prostitution won't come to an end in the foreseeable future so I take the position that it should be made legal and embraced by larger society, I mean pornography is so why not this profession. Just some food for thought.

The Trickiness of White People

In Fenway park on Monday during a game of America's past time, baseball not racism Adam Jones, a Black centerfielder for the Baltimore Orioles was heckled by Boston Red Sox fans,  not for his play on the field but for what some fans thought he was in their eyes…a Nigga and someone to throw peanuts at.  After the story picked up traction in the news, Boston Red Sox president Sam Kennedy condemned the actions of the fans and encouraged fans at the following night's game to give Jones a standing ovation, which they did.  Herein lies the problem I have with this whole situation.  White people somehow are allowed to mask the disgusting acts of one or a few members of their community with a show of emotion, avoiding any attempts to pathologize the act (Elizabeth Hasslebeck crying over the N word), while minorities are left explaining the actions of everyone in their community from rappers to 17 year olds who have been killed for no other reason than them being Black. (What about Bl…

You Better Watch What You Say (or at least who you say it to)

I’m sure by now at least 80 percent of America has heard what Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling had to say on a secretly recorded audio tape, or at least seen Donald Sterling and racist in the same headline, the rest must not have a TV or internet connection. I’m sure 100 percent of sports fans have heard the hateful words of an owner, revealing his feelings about minorities as well as his inner feeling towards women and the space both occupy in the world according to Donald Sterling. As juicy as the details to this story are, especially the fact that the NAACP was about to give Mr.Sterling a second Lifetime Achievement Award, there are so many angles to this story we have to break this one into several parts; Ownership, Culture, Racism.               “Structure” …… “WHITE POWER STRUCTURE”.  What did you feel when you read those words…”WHITE POWER STRUCTURE”, better yet what do you think about when you read the words “BLACK POWER STRUCTURE”. Which one sounds more believable?…

Its What You Are NOT Saying Mr. President

Last week, President Obama attended the Al Smith dinner in midtown Manhattan at the Waldorf Astoria. This annual event, held during the final stretch of a presidential campaign brings together all the political heavyweights from government, media, and religious institutions. Attending this dinner was mayor Micheal Bloomberg, who's proposed soda ban was the subject of a light hearted joke from the president.  What I found not humoring was the inability of this president to even address the violation of rights of thousands of young men in this city at the hands of the NYPD, commissioner Ray Kelly and the aforementioned Micheal Bloomberg . Of course I don't really expect him to make damning statements at this dinner, but perhaps at a local church or playground in NYC. Less amusing is knowing why the president didn't address stop and frisk that night or any other time he has come to New York for a fundraiser; the president does not want to jeopardize his political run in a bl…
