HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO POTUS TURNING THE 54 !!!!!!!!

44_barack_obama[1]

Happy Birthday President Obama he turned the big 54 on Tuesday August 4th 2015. He is the 44th president of the United States and aging gracefully on his second term in the White House, he’s the most prolific president of this era that we’ve had since Bill Clinton. Hes done so much for the young people of the generation including the Gay and Latinos he’s help this country grow in ways I never thought it could grow because of the horrible struggling eight years that we had with President Bush. Never would I have thought that Gay Marriage would be legal in 50 states that LOVE IS LOVE  and it Conquers all no more does it have to be keeping quiet that your Gay you can be open about your sexuality you won’t be discriminated for your sexual preference no more don’t ask don’t tell in the army or anywhere in the work place, that all because of President Obama and his Administration doing what needs to be necessary not because it would be a right political move but because it’s what America needs. Also letting Latino’s have citizenship in the United States and not having to be deported because of how they came over here but giving them the American Dream Act that stats if you have a child that was born in the United States that the parents are now Legal Citizens because of their child and that all happen because of President Barack Obama we have a lot to thank this man for what he has done for this country so it’s only right that we wish him even thought it is late a HAPPPPPPYYYYYYY BIRTHDAAAAYYYYY!!!!!! and many more.

DRAKE BODIED MEEK IN BACK TO BACK DISS RECORD

The link above is Drake officially bodied Meek Mill in the rap beef that he started with Drake, by saying that Drake doesn’t write own raps. If you remember a couple of weeks ago Meek Mills came for Drake and others like Nicki’s ex but specifically he came for drake saying that he doesn’t write his own raps and that hes finally exposing the truth about guys in hip hop that don’t write their raps and have ghost writers that write their own raps. Well Drake clapped backed and came back at Meek a with a song called Charged up I’ll post that link so you guys can listen to it and give your opinion about the supposed diss to Meek , the song wasn’t a diss to me really it was just Drake being Drake and bodied  him by just singing  and showing meek his rang in the world music world and that he’s just not a rap artist that he can also be an R&B artist as well. Then today Drake dropped another Diss Record called Back to Back you have to listen to it for yourself to see how Drake came for him in some of his rhymes he says ” Trigger finger turn into Twitter Fingers” , “Is it your world tour or is it your girl tour ”  last but many more he throws shots at Nicki as well “Shout out to my Boss B*tches  wifing n*ggas ” now if that wasn’t a shot I don’t know what is but check out the Diss track in the link Drake-Meek-Mill

Celibacy in Hollywood : Russell and Ciara

Yes you read that title correct CELIBACY  in Hollywood who would have thought that. Well Ciara and Russell are taking a vow of celibacy until they get married, this is the most beautiful thing that could have ever happen to Ciara from getting out of a cheating relationship with Future and having a baby by him. It was time for something new for Ciara to date someone new that just wasn’t dating her because of her popularity and fame like future was doing. Someone like Russell Wilson to come along and save Ciara from giving her body to men that just want to have sexual relations with her because of her status and not wanting to get to know the real Ciara not the singer and the performer. Russell Wilson came out sometime ago about him and Ciara taking a Celibacy vow while he was being interviewed by a pastor of his church , Russell asked Ciara what if we took everything off the table and do it Gods way and Ciara was totally down for it. Later on in the interview Russell said ” God spoke to me and said that she was the one for me”, cue the Awwwww . For Ciara to find a man that want to get to know her mentally, physically and emotionally means that their are some good guys that are left out their for us women but are shadowed by the not so good guys like Future that was just honestly into her because of her status and that she’s actually the prettiest women that he’s ever seen in his life have you seen the mother’s of his children? I would have dated Ciara quickly myself but he went about it all wrong he was just looking at her status of and R&B singer that has million of hit records not the Ciara the person. Russell wants to  know the Ciara the person not the Singer and it shows in the way he talks about her and shows her off on Instagram or Twitter, he’s serious about their vow of celibacy they’ve taken together them taking this vow make us younger people view relationships more differently then before, and that its okay to be celibate with your significant other you don’t have to have sexual relations right away you can wait until your married or you can wait a couple months but its nothing wrong with it if you ask me their making taking a vow of celibacy cool and unique.

Same-Sex Marriage Legalized in All 50 States

Mark this date and never forget it.

Same-Sex marriage has been legalized in ALL 50 states in America. According to CNN, “In the 5-4 ruling, Justice Anthony Kennedy…’No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family,” Kennedy wrote. “In forming a 539121-gay-marriagemarital union, two people become something greater than they once were.

Married same-sex couples can now enjoy marriage by having the same legal benefits as heterosexual couples. This will also be implemented on official documents such as birth and death certificates as well.

This will be a day marked in history.

Obama Said WHAT?

POTUS

Many are up in arms about President Obama using the “N” word during a podcast interview with Marc Maron. The POTUS says, “The legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives, you know that casts a long shadow, and that’s not cured of it…and it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public, that’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination…societies don’t overnight completely erase everything that happened 2-300 years prior.” Not so bad , right? It’s not like he was calling blacks niggas for no reason, he was making a valid point, however, many have taken the word out of context and feel as though Presidents shouldn’t be using that word.

Here’s how I feel; Obama is not the first President to use that word, he’s just the first to say it out loud. I’m sure he knows the consequences of his actions, but by him being the first African American President,if there was one that needed to say it first…it should be him, especially after what’s going on in the world right now. He was saying racism is not about white people saying nigger; it’s deeper than that. There is hatred deeply routed within those racist families that are being passed down from generation to generation and those offspring end up acting out and hurting an already oppressed people.

Another point Obama made was about cracking down on gun control in response to the Charleston massacre. Now, I’m all for gun control. I believe there should definitely being a more difficult process to get access to one than there is now. I believe that those who have guns and that don’t live alone should have to keep them under lock and code and hidden from children especially. I believe that those diagnosed with certain mental disorders shouldn’t own guns. I could go on and on about gun control issues, but that’s not the problem. Things like the Charleston tragedy cannot be prevented with gun control alone; this is an issue of race. Racist actions should be punished more harshly than they are, police included. Law enforcement needs to make more efforts in helping enforce racial equality in all corners of the country including the less fortunate areas. Crimes even as small as threats should be taken seriously.

Though we can’t stop racism, having the President on board for change is certainly a huge step. Black people have our eyes on him because he’s approaching his last year in office and he has little time to make a difference. With racists such as Donald Trump trying to swoop his way into office, he’s got to do something before it’s too late. So, no, I’m not upset that Obama used the “N” word. Maybe this will wake people up. Maybe this will provide some clarity. Maybe this will finally be the beginning of Obama taking verbal and physical action against the hideous racists of our country.
