Just So You Know

Let me start this by saying if at any time you read a message that compels you to a response, by all means... feel free to continue the learning. You DO NOT have to leave your real name or any name for that matter. When you click "post a comment" or however it reads, you have 3 options. Once on the actual comments page, you'll see prior replies as well. Then there's the 'leave a comment' field. Under that are CAPTCHA and 'choose an identity' (name) options. CAPTCHA is designed to slam SPAM as well as let me know a human is posting vs. a computer generated response. Again, I do not consume beef nor pork so SPAM is not welcomed. Even a photograph of it bothers me. Ok, not really but you get my point and hence you will see the moderation message when you've finalized your post. The identity/name options are as follows:

1) Log-in using (drop down menu for those registered with those services)

2) Nickname and URL - allows you to choose any name and/or link your site to it

3) Anonymous (you can use it but I still have the right to decide if it gets published publicly or not - GOOD FOR ME - YAY!!)

So there ya go. Send me $49.99 if you use these instructions in your own BlogSpot. Cash, cashier's check, money order and Western Union accepted 24/7. :D

Are We The Only Ones Who Wear Huge Jewelry??

I've watched Katt, and recently Xzibit, on various talk show programs and I am really bothered by the jewelry questions. Are Black people the only race who buy big, gaudy trinkets that require several minutes of awe from the likes of Howard Stern, Conan O'Brien and Craig Ferguson? I do try to look around and it seems really wealthy and/or the street wanna bes are the majority of Black males I see with a cross bigger than Jesus himself practically. Now, if I recall right... Jesus carried and died on a wooden cross. How come I don't see a single person with that around his/her neck?? Do the diamonds, platinum and whatever other materials they are made up of carry more significance than the wood?? Does it solidify the belief? Why do we need to wear trinkets to remember Jesus Christ's life/death... at all!?!? Ok, this might require another Blog post at a later date. Next............

Back to the jewelry and it's size. Howard Stern spent so much time on Katt's jewelry that I was about to just leave the room. Each visit Stern seems to have never seen anyone else with that much jewelry on in his entire life as a interviewer but as a person as well. It's oooooooooooo k Howard. And then, Craig asked Mr Joiner how can he get a watch like the one he was wearing. Hellooooo... you take your arse to a jeweler and buy it. What part of that did you miss along the way to your nice lil rise to the top. Just like a house, a car and anything else... you make the money to be able to afford it. I'm just not understanding because.......... do you ask other guest this question as if they should just say 'oh, here... you can have this one?' while taking it off and handing to over to you?!?!?

I don't want to seem like I'm being racially incorrect because Sherry on The View asked Katt about his jewelry too. And for those who do not watch the view, she's Black as well. I'm just befuddled as to why the question needs ot be asked?!?!?!
