The Weak End…

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good.
I perused through the news of our global hood.

I found a couple of pieces I thought I would share.
US NEWS MSNBC is responsible for the columns air.

The first story is rooted in the kink of my hair – HOT like convection.
It’s regarding a pageant for browner complexions. A black reflection:

African-American ‘complexion’ pageant outrages many in St. Louis
St. Louis residents expressed outrage this week over a “Battle of the Complexions” contest scheduled for Friday night, but the event’s promoters said they organized it to honor African-American women and regretted any “misunderstanding.”
The event was set for 9 p.m. local time (10 p.m. ET) at a nightclub in St. Louis. Promotional materials, including the poster pictured at right, promised a contest to see which African-American women are most attractive — those with light skin, those with brown skin or those with dark skin.
“This is the most debatable topic of the year, whats the sexiest skin complexion?? So ladies come out & lets settle this!!” the promoters — Mack TV, a video and music promotional company, and a local “men’s entertainment” promoter calling himself Nelly Da’Celeb — said on a Facebook page for the event, which is not linking to because of extreme language. Click US News MSNBC to finish this brown tale.

Another racy story – though this has nothing to do with race, but rather a random DC fool–
who tried to steal a marked secret service car parked in front of Obama’s daughters school.
A stupid move that proved to not be so cool:

Man tries to steal marked Secret Service car outside Obama school
WASHINGTON — U.S. Secret Service officers arrested a man who allegedly tried to steal a Secret Service car outside the school where President Barack Obama’s children attended classes, officials said.
The uniformed car was parked near Sidwell Friends School in the 3800 block of Wisconsin Avenue Northwest when the man tried to drive away with it abut 2:30 p.m., according to the Secret Service.
The man, identified as Josh Gibson, quickly was taken into custody and taken to D.C. police for processing. He was charged with carjacking.
The incident had nothing to do with the school, officials said.

So the weekend was weak on a front or two,
I’m Qui
Glad that it’s Monday. I feel stronger with you.

  1. VERY clever title!
    I love it!
