NOT YOU TOO MAYA!!!


(Maya & MLK Jr....How would Marty feel about all this Hill/Bill Love??)

DAGNAMMIT!!!!!!!!!! Lemme start by saying Maya Angelou is on my idols. As a woman and artist she's a class act. But dag on she threw me for a loop with the following statement:

“As a child, Hillary Clinton was taught that all God’s children are equal, so as a mother she understood that her child wasn’t safe unless all children were safe.

I know what kind of president Hillary Clinton will be because I know who she is. Hillary Clinton has always been a strong woman and a passionate protector of families. For 35 years, that’s exactly what she has been doing.

Each generation of African Americans stands on the shoulders of those who came before. Today, the challenges facing us threaten the dreams we have had for our children. We need a president with the experience and strength to meet those challenges.

I am inspired by Hillary Clinton’s commitment and courage — a daughter, a wife, a mother — my girl.”

*sigh* On last weeek's DivaSpeak Tv Ep we WENT IN on the Minister fool from Harlem and here goes Maya pledging allegiance to Bill and Hill! I am just confused and confounded as to WHERE this unwavering loyalty is coming from. So for the sake of not completely discounting the minds of our elder community (who right now are SOOO WATTA) I've decided to apply this theory: perhaps they are they are applying a reverse psychology tactic! Maybe just maybe in their wisdom they're banking on the rebellious nature of us "youngsters" and goin so hard because as to incite us to go for Bams! (long shot, but hey it gets me through!)

This is about who you think can run the country.... I would refuse to endorse someone that I feel would not be good for the job.... To endorse someone based on sex/race is not a good look for anyone. We are not talking about electing the pres of the NAACP, then that would be a problem..... IMO the Only way Obama can prove he is the right person for the job is to win and prove, Hillary is in the same position..... If either are elected, we as a nation are on our way to a new Era...... Keep thatin mind. Maya is a smart woman, and I would bet my house her endorsement is not based on gender. I know she did her homework on what she thought was important.....


Peace...... Diva I still Love you!

Why are still slaves to the Democratic party? That's what I wanna know...When are we gonna stop being raped by the Democrats and start electing our own candidates? They don't even have to be black...they just don't need to be attached to a party machine that has proven ineffective..'cause neither the Democrats or Republicans are worth a damn...

Obama's a good brotha tho...I wouldn't be mad at him for winning...I just don't think it'll mean much in terms of change

At this point i think Obama is more of a symbol for change than an actual harbinger of it. Already he has folks who never gave two damns about politics wanting to know more and communicating on pages they'd never turned to prior. Neither candidate is really saying much of anything in the way of actual, literal change per se so I am looking more to who can do more to inspire the masses to move. If Hillary gets in and does doo doo noone will notice. It's expected. If Bams gets in the white house and does squat, you know folks is gonna get on the good foot. WATCH!
