Here's something that's been on my mind for awhile now. My mom asked me this question when I was dating my ex-girlfriend Mary. Let me give you some backgrounnd...

Mary was part Spanish, part Chinese, but mostly grew up with white folks so basically she was white with a tint. I used to talk to her about minority issues, but she never understood.

Ok back to the present...I have a propencity to date white girls. That's not to say I don't date anyone else because I don't discriminate (at least not consciously). I women's a women and if she hot and smart (not necessarily in that order) I'm down. Just so happens I've dated a lot of white girls.

Anyway, I fashion myself as a person who is socially aware of who I am, a black man living in a world where mostly white folks are in charge. I speak out about a lot of issues affecting minorities, especially black folks. I want to see disenfranchised folks get ahead, whatever race they may be. As I grow older and become a professional or academic, whatever, I find myself wanting to speak to students about minority issues, maybe as a professor.

So the question I pose to whomever is listening is can a minority dating or married to a white person lose credibility when speaking about minority issues? A friend of mine said that if Louis Farekhan (sp?) fell in love with a white woman he'd have to step down as the leader of the Nation of Islam. I told her she was crazy, but would he really have credibility to talk about the white man being the devil? How does marrying a minority affect your political views (not repub or demo, but issues involving minorities)? No matter whom I'm with, I'm going to still speak of the injustices of the world.

Back to my mom, she always asked me how I can talk about the man stepping on the toes of black folks when I'm dating a white girl. Just told her I didn't know, but I wasn't going to stop.

Going to Africa like Dave Chapelle...

Ok so I'm not really pulling a Chapelle and rolling out on life for a bit. I have been away for awhile though, on my own accord. Just haven't felt like writing much. Not much to say. Like Aaron McGruder, I took a sabatical from myself. But I think it's time to start wriitng again. Here are some topics I think I'll cover...some old, some new.

1. Watching the T.O. press conference made me a little sick. Why does this strong black male figure have this little weasley white guy speaking for him, making him lok bad?

2. Giving control of our ports to a company from Dubai. What the Fu@k!

3.Tricky Dick and the Wild West Shootouts.

4. Vince Young and the Magical 6.

5. Why the fu@k are there 12 people running against Ray Nagin in the New Orleans mayoral election?

6. Why the fu@k are they having an election?

7. Why the fu@k has it been six months and the 9th ward still looks like Lebanon after an airstrike?

8. Maybe that's why there are 12 people running against Nagin and they're having an election.

9. My application for a PhD program at UNO.

10. For all the ass shaking white girls do now, can't nobody shake an ass like a sista shakes an ass.

11. Are the fu@kers in the NFL losing their fu@king mind?

12. Dave Chapelle is the greatest comedian alive today.

13. Why I'm using the word fu@k so many times.

14. Does anyone care about the winter olympics?

15. Why Chocolate City will be more white chocolate than dark chocolate.

I think that's about it. Of course I will never cover all these topics, but I'll try. Maybe someone can help me out with a few. Be back soon!
