a blackgirl's permutating manifesto on windowsill marigolds & freestyle guerilla acts

I'm not quite sure where to begin. It has been an enlightening and disturbing day but i'll get into that later.

First off: I'm still working on R. Kelly. I have barely scratched the surface of my thoughts on this serious issue. I do want to clarify the sentence I wrote about Mark Anthony Neal's rage not eclipsing his desire for Kelly's music. I meant to highlight how he is trying to figure out what to do. Does he follow Pearl Cleage and stomp and crush every cd he owns of R. Kelly as Cleage did with Miles Davis' tapes and cd's? Can he separate Kelly the artist and Kelly the abuser and write a review of the Chocolate Factory? Neal decides to scrap writing a review in protest to Kelly's inability to admit to his sexually violent exploitation of young Black girls. Neal envisions a different world for his four year old daughter which does not include listening to R.Kelly as he drives to work. By the end of the article, Neal is convicted and clear about his position and I apologize for implying otherwise.

After many years of watching sometimes snippets, patches, and on the odd occassion, entire episodes, I, unequivocally scientifically postulated that Oprah is the real "Where's my money, Bee-yatch!" nigga. No one pimps a product like that woman. The eager citizens of white and black United Plantation States of America are flat on their backs, legs wide open like "Give it to me, Daddy." She wakes up in the morning with Jigga style bravura and says"Fuck all you ho's." During the 2000 election she did have Gore and Bush on her show, staking their claims on the infamous presidency, right? In a sense, the two were asking her permission to run, right? I guess Ms. Winfrey said, "Charles Ogletree and Randall Robinson, y'all can talk all you want about how we have to unite for reparations, I'ma do it my way, the money, power, respect way, the exploitation highway way. You dig, my niggas? Now, If you don't mind my freshest ho, Dr. Phil is in the house and my ass needs its fix of a little kissing."
