    McCain's boys, monkey bars and color coded fear

    in Poetry

    Has the Non Aggression Principle failed? The filmed execution of journalist James Foley and the apparent destruction of minority groups in Iraq at the hands of the savage ISIS fundamentalists has even steadfast Libertarians questioning their view on foreign policy. Are the interventionists now vindicated? Is it time to just admit that Lindsey Graham loves us and wants us to be safe ? Should we drool and shit our pants in fear ? Isn't it just time to get on the freedom train, eat our freedom fries , suckle the chaffed nipples of the nanny state , pull the warm blanket of homeland security over our eyes and be grateful that the sages of the U.S. govt. are hard at work protecting us all ?

    The N-Word Demystified: Why White People Aren't Allowed to Say It

    in Poetry

    In this episode Bernard Hankins answers the frequently asked question of why black people are allowed say the word nigger but white people are not. The "N-Word" is a topic that resurfaces everytime an incident involving racism comes to the forefront of American culture. Celebreties such as Don Imus, Paula Dean and Donald Sterling create a buzz around the overall discussion of race, however the root causes of our problems continue to not be addressed. Ratings driven by contreversy, sensationalism, and the easily promotable soundbyte do not allow for a true examination of the issues.

    The world was introduced to this erotic poet thru HBO's "Real Sex" series; a racy, informative show about all things sexual, erotic, romantic, freaky.  It was thru this show that I learned more about erotic poetry and that it is a most romantic tool for intimate communication between lovers. Jessica Holter began her journey into the world of erotic Spoken Word art in 1995 as the Founder and Organizer of the infamous Punany Poets.  Made up of a beautiful, ever changing array of tall, short, thin, thick, fair, and extra mocha cast, The Punany Poets take you on a journey that is funny, sexy, informative, romantic, and naughty.  It is a total Mindgasm of Sight, Touch, Sound, Words, Dance, Art, and Erotica.  
    But Jessica is far more than just an "erotic poet".  She is quite prolific in Spoken Word and is both an Author and Activist.  With her art stemming from a history of sexual abuse, Jessica has turned her pain into one of the most alluring yet informative sessions one can ever go to and learn about sex - and Safe Sex.  As an advocate for this, she is supported by a host of organizations including the YWCA who attend her shows and hand out information about safe sex, answer questions, give prizes based on what you remember about the education of the show and more. I am honored to sit down with this woman and hear her story: one that has now been the subject of dissertations on the collegiate level.  But make no mistake, this is a GROWN, Black, No Sugar, No Cream Show.
    And yes, we will have something cooking up!
