MADAM PREZIDENT: BEYONCE’S BLACKFACE

_MG_2992beyonce-l'officiel-paris.jpg

Since Beyonce singing existence she has dominated the music industry. She isn’t just a great singer, she and her management has made her an extraordinary brand from Beyonce Knowles talent. Beyonce is rarely in the news for anything controversial. The media only indulge in her success, discussing her beauty, fashion endeavors, and relationship.

When I saw the article I had mixed emotions about it. For some reason white folk, head editors, and photographers think “black faces are the shit” for black history month! However it isn’t. I mean if you want to do the black face, why don’t you just do a shoot with black models picking cotton, or do a shoot with chains or a noose around black models neck.

I don’t care how anyone decides to express their artistic side, whatever you consider art is art. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; right? So, the idea of wanting to darken Beyonce’s skin doesn’t bother me. Now, the fact that Beyonce agreed to it does bother me.

The shoot wasn’t about money because B made a reportedly 89 million dollars in 2010 alone, she is one of the highest paid singers in America right now, however my black sister who made a reportedly 89 million dollars is obviously unfamiliar with Minstrel Shows. I believe if Mrs. Knowles was educated about black faces, she would not have allowed a group of people to put one on her!

She should have asked questions, she is the kind of celebrity that will get her questions answered. Her opinion matters. I wish Beyonce would have taken a stand this time, and said something, I wish she would have told these people whom are clueless of what black is, what black is. Black is being a multi-millionaire before 30, being waited on hand and foot, and rearranging a whole shoot with your sensitivity to those who could only act, sing, and dance with a painted face. When they declared the idea of the black face, I wish she would have simply said, “Darkening my skin almost unrecognizable is unnecessary, I AM THE BLACK FACE.” I am new form of black history!

 

Meaningful Blessings,

Madam Prezident

“STOP BEING SO NEEDY”

_MG_2889

Happy Monday Morning! I don’t know what to write about. I’ve been under the weather again, so the blog has been getting that neglectful treatment from me. Will you ever forgive me?

Well, I haven’t told you all, but I have been teaching middle school students lately. It’s been a delight, and sometimes not so delightful. I can say that I appreciate children. I appreciate a child being innocent, and pure in character. Now some of them are just bad as hell, but that’s another story.

This weekend I was thinking about how women we can be very needy! Now, I completely agree with helping, I believe in reciprocity, I believe in understanding. I believe in helping a woman, as well as a woman helping a man.

However, I’m starting to believe that this neediness is one of the primary reasons for the high single rate. In a relationship there has to be a balance. And sometime it is impossible for things to be 50/50. Sometimes it has to be 60/40 or 70/30 whatever ration is needed to make 100 percent.

Sometimes when it comes to finances it’s hard for things to be 50/50. For example, if I made 150,000 dollars a year and my husband made 50,000. I think it’s only fair to bare a little more responsibility because I have more. That’s the realistic way of sharing in a relationship. I wouldn’t try to take half of everything, because the numbers don’t add up.

Love is hard work people!

People are under this preconceived notion that love is EASY, and it doesn’t require work. That’s not the case, Love is hard work. Some of us women should try being less needy so we can get a man and keep him. Some of you women come with a 16 piece Louis Vuitton (BAGGAGE).

Leave the baggage behind. When you are dating a nice guy, don’t be so needy that will push him away. Now, when I say don’t be so needy. I mean, be beautiful even if he forgets to compliment you on it. You don’t have to be complimented all damn day!

Don’t always need money; I know it’s nice to get money from your man, but I can assure you it will help the relationship if you can carry your own weight sometime. Get your own hair done sometime, that will make him smile. Knowing you can provide for yourself sometime inspires a man even more to take care of you, just so he can say, “baby I got it” or “baby take this”.

Now when and if you are always begging, he is reluctant to give for no reason because you always NEED something. If you had a bad relationship with your father, don’t take it out on your man. Your man is not your father, he is your man. Don’t think your man suppose to comfort you like a father, or give you money like a father. Your man duties, comfort and giving differs from a father. You must differentiate between the two.

Today’s modern woman has a developed INDEPENDENCE, but we still come off needy. When you stop needing him so much, you probably can LOVE him and he can Love you back. Moral of the story is, STOP BEING SO DAMN NEEDY. A man can appreciate you a lot more, when he can see you without your hand being out!!!

Meaningful Blessings,

Madam Prezident

“WHY HE WON’T PROPOSE TO YOU”

_MG_2077

Good morning. I’m getting straight to the point with this one. They say black women aren’t getting married. The ratio of African American newly-weds happens to be a very low number in comparison to other races.

I wonder why?

Is it the number of incarcerated men? Is there a shortage of black men for black women? Is it the economy, people just can’t afford weddings and families. Or is it a time of full fledge courting with no commitment?

Is it the possibility that my generation, the 80’s babies have no demands for the new generation men?

I know the saying “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free”. Well, that’s it ladies. We are giving up the Milk for free, so there is no need for marriage. Think about it, we are living with men, sharing finances, having his babies, taking on his responsibilities, and there is NO “I DO” behind it. “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free”.

You must have an expectation for your man, he has to appreciate you and not take you and your companionship for granted. When a man value you, he is less likely to handle you carelessly. A husband values his wife, because he knows “it’s cheaper to keep her”.

In today’s society, men don’t even have to claim women they date. They pass them up on campus, and sleep with them behind closed doors. This is the behavior that will have black women single more than any other race, because when we meet a good man that has the ability to be our husbands, we don’t have any more milk to produce.

We are tired and worn out, then we meet a good man with no tricks, and we don’t even know how to treat him. I have seen so many good guys over-looked for the sake of jerks. Well Ladies, let’s preserve our Milk for our husbands, and stop letting niggas get the milk for free!

 

Every woman is deserving of being a man’s wife, and it’s okay to be a wife before you are a mother (that’s in style)!

Meaningful Blessings

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY: FORGET A BEAR AND A ROSE, “GET HIS HEART”

_MG_2234

Good Morning Friends. IT’S VALENTINES DAY. I know, I know. Not everyone is excited about the V-DAY. I’ve been sick this weekend. I am a victim to the weather. I haven’t been dressing as warmly as I should; now I’m paying for it. I’ve been in taking day-and night cold/flu medicine all weekend, and when I got up this morning I had to drink a five hour energy drink just to get a boost. I have a full day of classes ahead of me. I can’t afford to be sick, nor can I afford to rest.

In Frankfort, Kentucky the sun is beaming, and the wind is blowing steady. God granted Love Birds a beautiful day. I woke up weak in my body, but strong in my mind and heart about love. This beautiful weather of Valentine’s Day reminded me of a good love that I once had. My first Love! My heart smiles every time I think of God making someone so close to perfect.

Every day was February 14 with him. He was caring, he was wise, he was honest, he was strong, he was compassionate, he was mature, he was selfless, he was beautiful, he was forgiving, he was understanding, Wooooooooo. God took his precious time making him. He was creative, he was everything to me. He gave roses without reasoning. He would lend me his ear to talk off; he gave his shoulder for me to lean on.

I remember a love, I remember a good love.

Today, Ladies we won’t be insecure about not having a particular love to share this day with. We won’t be upset and sad about being single, and nor will we feel unwanted. Today we will celebrate “GOOD LOVE”.

We will celebrate the love we have awaiting to be released and reciprocated to someone that is deserving of it. We will celebrate the good dates, good movies, good times, and good sex we’ve encountered when we connected with love at some point and time in our lives. I’m happy about today.

I’m going to spend this Valentine’s Day celebrating “Good Love”. I’m thinking, how “I wish my first love could have been my last love, and I would no longer search for love.” Place yourself in a time of joy, and celebrate today. Celebrate today with a friend, a companion, or love.

The balloons and bears are nice, but that isn’t the true meaning of it. It’s his heart you want not the things that Wal-Mart is selling. Every year you can get a bear, and a rose, but the possession of his heart is much more rewarding.

For those of you, who have lost a love one; A love that is no longer on this earth. I send hope and healing to you on this day of Love.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Madam Prezident
