Martin Luther King, Jr Day 2011 – Happy MLK

Posted by on Jan 17, 2011 in Celebrity Birthday, Politics | Comments Off

I was on twitter and someone joked about how many blacks actually know the Negro National Anthem: Lift Every Voice and Sing. When I was young we performed this song at church functions and in school for special holidays, and we were required to memorize parts of Martin Luther King’s speech, I Have A Dream.

Now, I realize we no longer sing Lift Every Voice, and then it hit me we no longer need our own National Anthem. With the election of President Barack Obama, many blacks finally feel like they are Americans, and they embrace The Star Spangle Banner, sometimes with tears in their eyes unlike years past. The journey has been long and of course it’s not over, as many people have become more vocal with their racial stereotypes and disrespect for the President. But, we no longer have to eat out back, or stand on the bus so that a white person can take our seats, we no longer  have to move off the side walk to make room for whites, we don’t have to use sir or mam to refer to people younger than us, and if our child whistles at a white girl they want be brutally murdered and lynched.

It’s sad that it may be time to say good-bye to a black tradition, but it’s good news that 40 years after the death of America’s peace leader, we have a black President. Now both songs bring tears to my eyes.

Let us march on, til victory is won…

For the land of the free, and the home of the brave…

Vh1 is ventured into scripted TV with a new show called Single Ladies, starring Stacy Dash, Lisa Raye, and Charity Shea, produced by Queen Latifah.  With the success of The Game returning to BET, I have a feeling more scripted series will be hitting our favorite cable channels. After all, how many “Love” reality series can one network produce.

Howard, 25,  is a video “model” who moonlights as an exotic dancer. She is also  the mother of a seven year old boy, who called cops after his mother wouldn’t answer her phone while tanning, because he was scared of being left home along constantly. To top it off, cops arrived to filthy apartment:

The apartment looked like it had been ransacked, with women’s undergarments scattered throughout the living room. A small dog was in a cage, and dog feces and dog urine were in several places in the apartment.

This is probably one of the saddest stories,  I’ve reported on in a minute. There are more details when you continue, including how the young boy heats his own microwave dinners, and spends his nights alone while his mother is “working”.
