From the age of 0-22 I was just living having a lot of questions about a lot of things but never gave the time to do my own research. From that point on, I started to look for answers to all the questions I have a need to be answered. I began to study myself. I began to learn who I was and this blog is an expression of that process and the things to come

Doing research as I normally do, I ran across the FBI obscene file
that J Edgar Hoover created. In it he had dirt on many people in
high ranking positioned people in the government.
Being a southerner he thought civil rights/desegregation would
lead to disorder. He then collected dirt on Martin Luther King Jr.
He had several audio tapes of him having affairs. The FBI then
presented these tapes to Coretta Scott King thinking it would
break up their marriage and with that try to discredit his
organization. After Coretta heard these she was devastated, but
she talked it out with Martin Luther King and decided to stay
The question is how many people if in the same situation would
have left and changed history for the worse?
Since people are creatures of habit, How can one embrace change without sacrificing tradition? Or is sacrificing tradition apart of embracing change?
Seems like whenever I hear the word man being defined its usually coming from a woman. I cannot tell a woman how to be a woman. I simply do not know. I have my own ideas about it but there is no way I could fully understand. Plus I know that being a woman is not just one thing it is a large spectrum of things.
First of all I am a man by the way of birth period. The thing is there is not only one way to be a man. There is no one way to be any type of person. I understand when you use the term man you’re meaning it as a upstanding citizen if you will. You cannot re define a word depending on your own personal preference or situation. Even when a woman is not the most wholesome individual the term woman still applies, For example when a woman is considered to be a bad mother the title of woman is not stripped from her. The term commonly used to refer to a person of this stature is “poor excuse for a mother.” See how the word mother is still included. Even when derogatory comments are used to refer to a woman they still invoke feminism. When it comes to a man the opposition first strike is to take away the title of being a man.
I know what a man is. I been living the life of one every since I was born who are you to tell me I’m not one. I was raised by one, been apart of a family that was full of them, and been surrounded by them my entire life. Please do not tell me what roles I should play and things I should be doing just because I’m a man. When a man says those things to a woman he is labeled as being sexist. For some reason women don’t think they can be sexist towards a man. For the man in me will do whatever I want and however I see fit.
The argument against this that I normally hear is you’re to weak to stand up a fit the role I suppose to play so that is why I lash out against it. So does everything society say you agree with? As time and cultures change so does society, so you’re telling me the definition of what a man is depends on the time, place and culture that question is presented in? If you let society tell you how to live your life then what kind of life is that?
This is a dish called Odori-Don. It has a dead squid on top that “dances” when Soy Sauce is poured on it, activating it’s neurons. (so f’ing cool! remember, it’s DEAD!)
I would pay somebody to eat this while its dancing
Every time I hear the phrase “I’m just a southern girl at heart” that is normally followed by something that was beneficial to the women who said it. For the women who like for a man that opens doors, pays for dinner all the time, and takes his coat off and places it over a puddle for her to walk across I can understand that but I don’t understand why you would associate those things with things that only southern women would like. Why you don’t ever hear that when someone says something like ” a woman place is in the house and not in the workplace” or “woman don’t speak while two men are speaking to each other.” If all those stereotypical things are synonymous with southern culture then what is it saying about other women from different parts of the country or is saying “I’m just a southern girl heart” just another way for her to express the idea that she has an old school mentality and has not updated her ideas with modern times. Not saying that everything old fashioned is bad but sometimes things change for the better
Can you equate the to a white man that says “I’m just a good ole southern boy at heart” I know when I hear that phrase I automatically think racist, Mason Dixie, Confederate flags, and country music and I know that phrase doesn’t exactly mean that but how can one come with those negatives things with that phrase but “I’m just a southern girl at heart” means the complete opposite
