    Are their any real Matriarchs left?

    in Entertainment

    Matriarch: a woman who is the mother and head of a family.


    When I was young families had Matriarch she was the oldest woman in the family. Every year she made sure the family got together for holidays and family functions. She was respected by everyone in the neighborhood gang bangers, dope fiends, young mothers everybody looked to her for advice and guidence. She might have been a cussing fiesty woman or a God fearing woman either way she didn't take no mess from anybody.  Are their any Matriarchs left?

    He met her on vacation she got pregnant. she wants to keep it should he step up?

    in Entertainment

    This is a letter from a friend on facebook. I think it is very thought provoking. What do you think?


    My coworker asked me this and we went back and forth about double standards. What do you guys think about this: a guy goes on vacation and has sex with a random female. They both go back home and a month later she calls him and says she's pregnant and wants to keep the child. He said he doesn't want kids and that she should get an abortion but she is firm on keeping the child. Without any mention of child support. Guys what would you do in this situation? Ladies, same question.

  • How do we end police brutality?

    in Entertainment

    Unless you've been under a rock or on a distant planet you have seen the plethora of Black citizen being brutalized by law enforcement. We march, We plead and we beg for justice and our cries seem like they are falling on deaf ears.


    They tell you "All Cops Aren't bad". If this is true why is it that every time a Cop becomes a whistle-blower he quickly becomes an Ex-Cop?


    A Baltimore City cop who attempted to hold his fellow officers accountable for on the job misconduct has been intimidated to the point of leaving the police force entirely.


    Detective Joe Crystal became a target of intimidation for his entire department after testifying against other officers in a misconduct case.  Following his testimony, he received threats from other officers, and even found a dead rat on his car one day.


    “He saw a wrong and decided he couldn't live with himself and did the right thing and was punished, I think that’s just unbelievable,” Nicholas Panteleakis, Crystal’s lawyer said.

    Do Black People Pray Too Much?

    in Entertainment

    No disrespect intended I really think this is a very relevant subject. With all that's going on in the world concerning people of color it seems like we still have that "Pie in the sky, after I die" mentality. The Black Family is almost nonexistent to the point that we wish Mothers "Happy Fathers Day"... Has all this prayer helped or would we as a people be more advanced without it?

    Ex-NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal: 'I identify as black'

    in Entertainment

    (CNN)Rachel Dolezal -- fresh off of stepping down as head of the Spokane NAACP chapter over criticism that she's portrayed herself as black, even though she was born white -- stood by that self-assessment Tuesday, insisting, "I identify as black."


    Dolezal did not deny her biological parents are white or that she has changed how she looks at herself over the years in an interview on NBC's "Today" show. And she admitted not having corrected various published reports over the years labeling her as transracial, biracial and black.


    At the same time, Dolezal -- while admitting she might have conducted some interviews differently -- insisted she'd do the same thing again overall when it comes to how she has portrayed herself racially.


    CNN's Ed Payne, Dana Ford, Alyssa Jackson, Ray Sanchez, Ashley Fantz, Stephanie Elam, Paul Vercammen, Gary Tuchman, Tony Marco and Ralph Ellis contributed to this report.

    The reason I never joined a Gang

    in Entertainment

    Growing up in the Bronx I had plenty of friends that were in gangs. They rocked (wore) colors and some had pretty high rank in the gangs they were affiliated with. I had no problem with them and they had no problem with me. I have a life philosophy that I follow that some folks understand and some don't, but it's my mantra and it works for me. Do you belong to a gang? Religious, political, Street or Military? if so why? Join Zaiyah and Uptown as they discuss this and other important topics on this weeks edition of Zaiyah's House.
