This video doesn’t contain images of nudity, violence, hood rat beat downs or Kat Stacks, so you probably won’t watch it. And those of you who say I never post positive things on my blog will probably ignore this post like you do all my other positive posts.
But I’m posting this anyway in the hopes that at least one parent or teacher will watch it and use the message to empower their youth.

Dear Sandra Rose,
My name is Jarrett Mathis and I am a recent graduate of Dartmouth College. I am a Government Major. Also, I am a big fan of your blog!
Over the last 5 years, I have worked diligently to craft an interactive workshop that will help to empower black youth and reduce violence in the inner-city. I decided to create a workshop in order to get young people to think seriously about the importance of respect for self and others. I recently transformed this workshop into a documentary, which you can view on my website www.EmpoweringOurselvesNow.com.
I am a young brother who cares deeply about the black community. I think this website/film can have a very positive impact in our community. But, I do not have money for advertising. I would really appreciate it if you could post this information on your blog.
Did I already mention that Miami Heat star Chris Bosh was off the market? Well, Chris and his girlfriend stepped out last night for a bite to eat at Prime KO in New York City. Neither of them looked happy to be ambushed by the paparazzi. But that is the price of fame.
According to Miss Xpose, disgraced singer and convicted woman beater chris brown joined R&B crooner Usher onstage at the Sumfest in Jamaica. Brown, who can’t get any love in the U.S. is forced to travel out of the country if he wants to perform.
Both narcissists seemed more than happy to see each other as they embraced ecstatically onstage. They both look dirty and grimy like they were rolling in the mud together. These pics are begging for a different kind of caption, but my readers are getting wary of me pointing out the obvious. So I’ll let you have at it.
My apologies for the slow posts today. There’s a lot going on that I can’t mention on the blog right now. Hopefully it will all be over soon.
Leggy singer Christina Milian was spotted heading out for a girls dinner with tennis star Serena Williams at upscale restaurant Madeo in Beverly Hills last night. The duo were all smiles and Christina’s ring is finally off! She’s one hawt mama ad The Dream is a big fool!
Tennis superstar Serena was wearing a cast on her right foot following surgery. I want to say something about this pic so bad because it is literally begging for a caption. But I know my readers are getting wary of me stating the obvious. So I’ll let you do it.
Why would anyone — drunk or sober — throw beer and ice at a man holding his small child? Are thugs that damn disrespectful?
According to Chopitupmag.com, slight mayhem ensued when outraged rapper The Game leaped into an audience looking for the nut who doused his son with a cup of beer and ice at a recent concert:
Not everybody was showing California love for The Game and his two small sons when the West Coast rapper appeared on stage with some of his label mates and crew. The Game had just shared a heartwarming commentary on his love for the city, when Young Jeezy’s Lose My Mind-which The Game called his favorite joint-began to play, when a cup of beer and ice flew from the audience-and dashed The Game and his small son, who was in his arms!
“Hey yo, whoever just threw that fucking cup and beer on my kids, you about to get fucked up, and I’m about to get sued for it”, The Game announced after stopping the music. His goons then jumped into the crowd and The Game implored the crowd to point out the offender. Slight mayhem ensues as panicked people who are pointed out realize something bad is gonna happen-but aren’t sure exactly what.
Hill, 35, is scheduled to perform in a few shows as part of the lineup of the Rock the Bells tour. In the past few days, a previously unheard track titled “Repercussions” which is purported to be of her singing has hit the Web. The notoriously private singer also recently gave an interview to National Public Radio, sounding very much like a star on the comeback trail.
“I’m starting to get excited again,” Hill told NPR. “Believe it or not, I think what people are attracted to about me, if anything, is my passion. People got exposed to my passion through music and song first.”
Not everyone is convinced.
“I’m not sure if there is a comeback,” said Gail Mitchell, senior editor covering R&B and hip-hop at Billboard magazine. “Maybe that interview with NPR was to prime people, but until there is an announcement or new music, I don’t think we can say that anything is set.”
“Is she coming back or is she just doing what she has always done?” said Sandra Rose, who runs the popular gossip site SandraRose.com. “She performs, makes some money and then she disappears again.”
It’s not quite the career the world expected of Hill after her hit album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” was released in 1998 and went on to garner the singer 10 Grammy nominations (the most of any female performer at the time) and five awards.
The West Wing white guys who pushed to ditch Shirley Sherrod before Glenn Beck could pounce not only didn’t bother to Google, they weren’t familiar enough with civil rights history to recognize the name Sherrod. And they didn’t return the calls and e-mail of prominent blacks who tried to alert them that something was wrong…
“I’ve known these two individuals — the husband for more than 50 years and the wife for at least 35, 40 — and there’s not a racist hair on their heads or anyplace else on their bodies,” [Rep. John] Lewis said…
“The president’s getting hurt real bad,” Clyburn told me. “He needs some black people around him.” He said Obama’s inner circle keeps “screwing up” on race: “Some people over there are not sensitive at all about race. They really feel that the extent to which he allows himself to talk about race would tend to pigeonhole him or cost him support, when a lot of people saw his election as a way to get the issue behind us. I don’t think people elected him to disengage on race. Just the opposite.” Read More…
