How you like me now?

Now that you have lost  your $50,000 a year job,and now receiving unemployment and food stamps,why haven't your friends called in weeks?
All of those questions are things going through the minds of the newly poor,the folks who have worked their tail off most of their working lives.
They now have to ask  themselves should I continue to drive my image car or do I downsize to a Chevy?
Do I continue to shop at Safeway,when it's cheaper to shop at the Piggly Wiggly or Wally World(Walmart for those out of the loop).
Man do I miss being at the club with my American Express Card for all to see!
Now I notice Skippy and Ray-Ray standing on the corner day after day,with a look of never ending despair,could that be me in a short while?
Could that be me with the bottle of Wild Irish Rose and the funny grin on my face of hopelessness?
Or is this just a bad damn dream!

Neglect of the Black Male Nerd

I have often read and heard speak of there not being enough available Black males to our Black female  population for marriage or relationships.
I believe there maybe a segment of the Black male population that is seriously overlooked and shunned.
I know a few nerds and most are either laughed at or joked about in my experience as not the type of man a Black woman wants.
I'm talking about men who are educated and have good paying jobs,most that I'm aware of have sort out relationships or marriage out of their culture,most say because most Black women prefer a thug image for their man.
Am I off base with this premise or is there some truth to this matter,as they often say in my neighborhood,where there's smoke,there's fire!
                                                                           Happy New Year to All

Take this time of the year.............

To reflect on the things you need to make your life better,be it people,places or things.
Don't get caught up in the hype and think it's only about gift giving and buying.
The biggest gift working people can give themselves is a budget and a reassessment of our priorities.
May this time of the year bring you the insights that are needed to make 2012 the best year of your life.
Happy holidays to all,and thank you for visiting  my sight through out the year.
