Judge and be judged

That was a question on my mine yesterday judging other I asked a few co-workers what judging others was to them.
One response was on the money as to where I want to be in my life but I'm not there yet.
His response was that we are not to judge others because we don't know where that person may have come from or the situations that may have occured in that person life.
Lord knows I don't know why it's so hard for me to just let others be,I guess my own experiences say you don't have to be where or what you are.

No I didn't play pro basketball!

Sometimes the streotypes of life just catch me at some bad moments,I'm 6'5 250 pounds and I have been use to the questions from strangers just about all of my adult life,did you play pro ball of one type or the other.
But this morning the question from a old White lady at the park this morning just brought back all of the strerotypes I rail against daily in my life.
As Valerie and I made our way around the oval park track this lady walks up from behind and says "I know you played basketball" first I was shocked and lost for a response.
I didn't expect the question,look I'm 57 almost 58 years old and what makes people think that I had to be a pro ball player?
Why couldn't the question be I know you must have been a good brain surgeon?
Ok folks I'm not naive about who Iam or where I live or what the history of America is and still is.
But dam,would y'all cut this brother some slack and if you just want to speak to me just say good morning and stop assuming!

Something is in South Carolina's Water

And it's not only dirt and chemicals but the bodies of two little black baby boys.
It seems to me again we take on the wrong ideals from others in this society (Susan Smith,Union,SC),when the hard reality of life is upon us.
Here is a link to the story:Mother in custody after 2 children found dead in submerged car -

Coming Correct

I can't come casual anymore about anything in my life,which doesn't mean I'm on stand up guard 24-7.
With so many Black folk I know the seriousness of life is taken like a grain of salt.
So I reserve my softer side of life for the folk who understand me.
So many young people that I encounter daily are on a straight path to a early grave.
Many have not a clue of the deadly path they are following,
from extreme promiscuity,to living a madeup thug life of supposely keeping it real.
Babies having babies,older men impregnating younger women,families in a whirlwind of dysfunctionally,never seen in my life time.
So folks If I don't come correct,then who will?

Tiger Woods

I think the real world has begun to envelope Tiger Woods,the man hasn't won any major golf outing since his return to the circuit.
I have my thoughts as what maybe going through his head.
But I won't say at this time,I'll just say a little prayer for him.
Just goes to show you money can't buy you peace of mind!

The Truth and Nothing But the Truth

I know for some of you out here in cyberspace being truthful about your every dealing is not a issue.
But for me it's like a climax when I discover I have not been completly honest about what I have been doing in my daily living.
 For many the issue  maybe small,but for me dishonest is dishonest!
When a dishonest moment occurs for me nowdays,I can't just simply write it off.
You see that what been my problem as a human being writing off the little white lies of my life.

The Corruption and inconsistencies of living

A few of my blogger friends have taken time out of their busy day to respone to my post "Negro Please" and I thank each one of you for doing so.
Your responses has generated another post,inwhich I simply asked are there matters of everyday living that we give a pass too,but on other we are ready to throw the book at others.
I commented in my previous post that Congresspersons Waters and Rangel should resign and come clean about the ethics charges layed against them.
Serveral of the responses questioned if the charges were no more then a witch hunt,my natural response is if my hands are clean,how do people connect me to theses charges?
