HELLO MOTHERS, This blog entry is a personal one with me, all I am going to say is that once in my life I had a little sister and now she is a MOTHER, and yes she is from THE HOOD and succeeded real well, Part of me is jealous of her, and part of me envies her, and at the sametime , I am extremely proud of her. She is a great mom and now I have a niece and she is FABULOUS, due to her mom, and all of this came from our MOM and DAD. In short what I am trying to say is, ladies and gentleman please give your children a HEAD START in life, and especially you mothers. When it is your childrens turn, please pay attention to them and make their lives better than yours was. Thank You Posted by Picasa

This blog today is dedicated to the mothers in the hood who have sons, once again please please please let them go, enough is enough.

I personally know about 5 mothers that keep making excuses why their grown sons do not need to work at all, they come up with every scenario why these men do not have to leave home.

Remember this, while you are taking care of your sons , you are devastating our race and culture and turning them into wimps and failures, trust me I have seen this first hand. You all say he is cute and he is mannish, and you blame it all on his father, well maybe you should blame his fathers mother. Trust me, I know what I am talking about , nobody has ever wanted to take responsibility for this issue.

Bill Cosby deserves to be mad, hell I am mad right along with him. It is alright to help your child, but what if you are not equipped to help, what if you do not know what a man is, please do not be afraid to ask for help. Look at Hurricane Katrinas victims, most of them are single mothers, grandmothers,aunts,sisters etc.

The bottom line is, if someone a long time ago would have stepped up and changed the past, well maybe the future of today would be different, trust me it would be.

In short, do yourselves a favor:

Go into the yard tomorrow and watch a squirrel , the ants, the siders, the birds and the thing that they aall are doing , is taking care of their families, by way of nature, just watch them.

OK OK OK - Look at the MOVIE - BUGS LIFE and you will see how a community takes care of itself. THE LAWS OF NATURE SAYS - SET YOUR CHILDRE FREE, JUST AS THIS ELEGANT SWAN IS SIGNIFYING BY FLYING AWAY IN THE BAY WINDS - Of Oakland/Emeryville California.

My people, wake up.

Remember that old saying- What you don't know - will not hurt you.

The Hell with that - In this information society , what you don't know will KILL YOU , LITERALLY.

Change the past and create a NEW FUTURE.

Hello Mothers,

please sit down and talk to your daughters and sons also. This world is brutal, Naomi Campbell has been in this business forever, and she can tell you about the bumps and the bruises, literally and so can Tyra Banks. It is very very rewarding, but if this is your plan A, you better have an A thru Z plan, this business is bigger than one individual will ever be.

Go for your dreams, but please have a plan and for gods sake, please make sure that your dreams are realistic. I personally think that we all should have an agent or a career counselor that can advise us from birth to our final days, but that is not realistic, but we all need some type of guidance. This world is bigger than I am, but I have a part to play as a PUBLISHER and I am giving it all I have got.

At my age , over 40, I know what to do in life, and I also know what not to do. If you don't do anything else, please please please, establish a foundation first for your family or future family, in other words buy that Real Estate, land isn't going anywhere. Ok Mothers I can go on and on, if you have a son or a daughter wanting to pursue this field, which in THE HOOD, most of us do. Please give them more choices than that.

I was watching the movie - WHITE MEN CAN"T JUMP , and Woody Harelson told Wesley Snipes a power statement. He says that Black Men always want to look good first and WIN second, but White men, WIN first and look good second.

Think about it, and explain this to your sons and daughters, especially us in THE HOOD, we get used up as far as our physical ability can takes us, but please explain to your children,that a Businessmans life is a lot longer than an athlete or a Model or an Entertainer, unless he or she is in charge of Their Own Money, now that is a Businessman or a Businesswoman, in other words have a DREAM, but please be in control of it, and always have a plan.

Naomi Campbell does, if she doesn't , I am sure someone else has plans for her. Good or Bad, she is making herself and others a TON of money, and guess who is making the most of her money? So please have a PLAN.

Hello Mothers,

In the events such as that of Katrina, please keep yourselves some form of wireless communications.

logon to or or or any other wireless communications company that you may think of. Just get you account started, let this be a part of your emergency kit.

Communications is definitely needed, and not just for gossip. SO mothers, please do your part in protecting you and your family and friends the best that you can.

Hello Mothers

Please do not be offended by this Blog, but do yourselves a favor. Logon to and you will have a valuable website , with new tools to assist you and your daughters or whole family in dealing with this new world we live in.

I am not saying that you are not doing a great job, but come on. Oprah has been through it all and works very very hard, someone should please follow her footsteps and quit talking about her and try and incorporate some of her ways into your everyday lives. It just might make a difference.

Try something different, it just might work.

Do you know what classes your children are taking this year, or are you letting someone else carry on your family legacy.

FATHER = Fathers are The Hoods Extracted Resource.

This book is a GREAT PIECE OF WORK, why? It addresses the solutions , we all know the problems, but this book breaks down the role of fathers in THE HOOD. It is a sort of a guide of sorts.

Here are a few issues that will be covered.

Child Support - why should you get credit for paying child support, this is something that you are supposed to do. When you were dating, you paid for the ass, and now that you have created some ass, you do not want to pay at all. Sorry. It is your obligation for life......

Responsibility - Be repsonsible to yourselves as men , and then you can be repsonsible to your family. One of the main issues in regards to being a Father, please do not live with your parents, unless it is an extreme circumstance, I don't call being lazy or a mama boy an extreme circumstance. Hint - if you never ever leave home, what can you show your children and how will their futures be?

Earning Your Keep - You cannot go through life not being aproductive member of society, because in The Hood our children already have enough going against them, and now you as their father are not earning your keep, all this does is make your children more confused more so, because the real world has no time for a free-loader.

Good Evening to you all, I have a question for you mothers, do you know if your daughters are really going to college? Do yourselves a favor and check up on them, every now and then. The reason why I say this is, college students seem to think that they are grown,butthey are forgetting one thing. You the parents are paying their way through college, especially if they are still living in your home. We as parents need to know this. The reason why I am addressing this to mothers is: Most, not all mothers in THE HOOD, defend their children 100% and do not even know what they are doing. This is a major problem within our inner city neighborhoods. Most of you do not know what your children are doing. It would do you good to find this out, it cna save them as well as boost their morale , just to know that you care. This picture here is a picture of my younger sister, yes she is 19 but I still go to her school atleast twice a week, unannounced , and guess what, she is in class. Trust me, when they know that you care, at times it does make a difference. Posted by Picasa

Attention Mothers, please introduce your daughters and sons into the field of Architecture-Technology and or finance. Being a Dancer and or a Entertainer is a one in a million shot. It is fine to have a dream, but you need to give your children a choice or a direction. Posted by Picasa

The Oakland - San Francisco Bay Bridge, an engineering marvel in the making.

Your Sons

Your sons,

Hello Moms. Let's take a minute to start on a controversal issue. Black Men. You need to keep your sons busy from this age 4yrsold on up, especially when it comes to their education.

Life is to tough on Black Men forever, so you need to be tough on them from a young age. They need to work , they need to go to school, they need to own their own businesses, they need to mow the lawn,they need to wash dishes, they need to feed the dog, they need to do all of this at the same time, and above all, they need to be loved 360 degrees all the way around. I said loved, not babied.

If you do not know how to do this, cry out for help now, not when he is 14yrs old. So please please please save your sons now, and you will see the results later. Nine times out of ten, our sons imitate what they see in front of them. So it is your job to show them a Woman and then they will know how to chose one. By you being a great woman , it gives them something to go by, a guide of sorts.

Please do not take offense to this BLOG, just get up and do your job and more. Posted by Picasa

You may ask , what does he know about raising a son???

Simple, I had the greatest woman in the world raise me, and that woman is my mother. She is great, I have never ever met anyone come up to her level. She is just well rounded.She and my Dad were on the same page when it came to the children.
