    United Party

    I remember watching as Bernie or Bust unfolded in the media. Didn’t they see the possibilities of Trump becoming president. Reality hit and I knew  they had to or they would not have weaponized it. When the comments that Hilary was just as bad as Trump began to circulate I felt a cringe. How could they say that when this man has openly admitted to belief in superior genetics, openly talked about sexually assaulting women , disrespected a disabled person, disrespected the US military, refused to rent to black people, has no political experience, and has never read a book in his life. How can we say their the same.…

    Harriet The Movie : My Black American GHETTO review

    The 1st trailer I saw of Harriet immediately brought me to tears. There are few movies that honor black women and their contribution to American society. This was years over due, it’s here and I was excited. The big scoop of icing on this cake was the movie is being directed by a black woman Kim Lemmons. I went to twitter looking to share in the excitement and notice it was lacking. So taking my direction from Feminista Jones’s “Reclaiming Our Space” I went to the hashtag #Harriet. There I discovered the reason for lack of excitement. There was a controversy about the lead actor Cynthia Erivo who also starred…

    New Years New Me or Maybe Not

    New Years , a time to hit the refresh button. There is that beautiful stream of new possibility and an air of  optimism swirling around .  The itch to recreate a new self and sit all goals on the table with the timeline of 2019 is strong and a bit stressful.  Several people are opting out of the social personal experience of goal setting with the rest of us.  When I get the chance to ask around  about there lack of participation most give me one of these three reasons I set goals all year, there is nothing special about this time. I know they wont last why go through…

    The 1st Trailer for My Podcast .

    Lets start with YAY it got done. There were some awesome advice and blogs that helped me but I have posted a few things I thought were important and  I didn’t find warning or  advice making the suggestion. Find a tutorial on how to work your recording software.  If there is a tutorial that comes with the software. TAKE ADVANTAGE. Some of you may be laughing right now, thinking ” DUH Nikki “. I myself have a decent relationship with computers. I consider myself more then efficient with computers and a pro with Microsoft and if I can maneuver there then I can anywhere. This is the 1st system I…
