CHANGING up the SIGN language…

Dale Hansen said, “IT WILL CHANGE,” just like HE DID:

You know I’m from Texas — it’s always in my mouth
and I know first-hand the nastiness of racism in the south.

I still love the place, I call it home
and Dale is one of the reasons WHY I can’t leave it alone.Bad Sign language in TX

Racism is strong, but not just in the state of Texas.
Unfortunately, it’s a degree of commonality that connects us.

Unpleasant at its core – it is a thing that is taught.
We knew that all along, but why would such a view be sought?

Dale Hansen was sold it, but wisdom came along and taught him better.
Brave was he to voice the “see” – ol Dale is a WISE go-getter.

Majestic in character… I really don’t know what else to say.
I was moved and brought to tears when I watched this clip the other day.

USA All The Way

Yes. I love Texas. I love the United States.
I love our collective unity. I hate the division of race.

Ignorance is what it is and “it will be replaced one day,”
I certainly agree with the wisdom in Dale Hansen’s recent say.

Gosh darn’int, I think I’m gonna cry again,
I’m Qui 
Racism is a war we can win!  Let’s start with family and friends.
XO!!

Where is DRUCILLA today?

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on February 24, 2015 at 5:28 am

DrucillaDrucilla! Drucilla! Won’t you please come back?
Neil is in trouble; his heart – filled with lack.

He married a girl named Hillary and she delivered the slash
that rendered his relationship with Devon to the trash.

I knew the marriage would be a farce, long before she ever said, “I do.”
She recited her vows to Neil when it was clear that your son was her Boo.

Shame on Devon too. Yes! He has earned the right to feel shame.
Things are such a familial mess, you’d be a reckoning change.

Drucilla! Can you hear me? [Changing direction] Can you hear now?
Make your way back to us anyway… anyhow.

You last dropped off of the scene via a very steep cliff,
You’ve been gone long enough to heal a leg, an arm and a hip.

If your heart is still in it – come back and look after your man.
If anyone knew how to organize chaos – it was you who lead the band.

It’s not fair for the only 2 black male residents on the show
to have to fight for the love of 1 woman, especially in the snow.

Yes girl. Neil, Lilly and Devon were in transit – elevation above ground,
when a winter storm appeared with quick alarms and knocked their plane down.

Jill, her hubby and his son were also on the plane.
Jill Abbot’s former “faux son” is your son-in-law, Cane.

Yes girl. Cane Ashby is from Australia, and his physique ain’t at all bad.
He’s crazy about your daughter Lilly and Jill Abbott married his Dad.

Hillary is new. You don’t know her. She’s not been too long around.
Seeking revenge after her moms fatal alcohol binge – brought her to town.

She blasted your family via the internet – in hopes to defame to no end,
and somewhere between getting busted and making folks feel disgusted,
she became Devon’s girlfriend.

She was sleeping with Devon on the low, after he inherited billions of dollars.
This was not good info for his sis to know — for he knew she’d scream and holla.’

Thererfore, he and Hillary gave no clues and raised no flags of alarm,
but the moment Devon tended to his real gf, ol’ Hil fell into Neil’s arms.

Devon eventually broke it off with his real gf but Hillary dated Neil in stride.
Devon egged her on to cut it off, but Hillary preferred “the chase and hide.”

You know the game “chase and hide,” you’re among the best who played it at will.
You had the same situation in your life, at one point, between brothers Malcomn and Neil.

The Y&R soap writers intended for Hillary’s scene to be like yours,
they may be right – it would be Hil’s delight…
Drucilla: Make it all a blur!

Hillary isn’t you and you have been M.I.A. on Y&R for too long,
I’m Qui
and I know its wishful thinking but “Baby Come Back” is still my song.

Drucilla, Drucilla. Where art thee?
Victoria Rowell: If you see Dru, please have her to call Qui. 🙂

But then…

Believe it or not and just as fast as I can write,
I found an article on Y&R  that nearly blurred my sight.

It seems Ms. Victoria Rowell has filed a law suit
against Y&R, and the details aren’t cute.

As much as I love Y&R I am saddened about the news
I must respect Mrs. Rowell and her in-house knowledgable view.

You can read the summary of the story HERE – and get this,
she’s suing for re-employment on The Young & The Restless.

I read this after my previous article – where I’m begging Dru to come back.
When there’s a vibe in the air, I usually catch it like that.

I will usually hit directly on a headline that is trending today
without reading a headline prior – without knowing the quoted say.

Anyway, Victoria’s gripe also covers the lack
of respectful treatment given to talent that is black.

Another gripe that she has is — and get this,
Y&R has no black producers that are executives.

This is quite believable, I just bear and grin
knowing the writers don’t understand how to connect brown kin.

I love the array of melanin tones that they have allowed to be mixed in,
though Darius McCrary may have been too black- thus his role had to end.

I laugh about it myself. Dark skinned folk aren’t just a rarity on Y&R
I think most black folk are surprised that Viola Davis is a serial star.

It seems to be, (and pardon me, my observation is from a chic who’s black),
that soap opera roles fashioned for us, are a bit thin and lack.

While I do recognize the lack of blacks, I am not quick to complain,
because other soaps struggle to cast any. Other soaps remain lame.

But what Victoria is trying to do, is to “even the playing field” at the risk of her own sorrow;
Victoria Rowell is going through the trouble to sue, for the young actress that will come tomorrow.

Rosa Parks didn’t take a stand for herself, she did it so others after her could have a seat.
Victoria is doing the same thing here. I pray Y&R will consider her concerns and meet.

Until such time, Neil will be in a doozy
and Hillary will be the “misplaced” floozy,

when it didn’t have to be like that — if we understood ethnic kin
and gave consideration to hiring at least 2 more black women.

Make one of them a single mother and the other perhaps a stripper.
One could be on “the struggle” and the other one could be richer.

One can fondle Devon and the other could call Malcom back.
Lilly will still have her Cane and Neil won’t be in a love lack.

I still want Drucilla to come back – for my own loyal viewership reasons,
I’m Qui
Connected to all that is young and even the restless during this season.

Baby Come Back!

NEWS PERUSE – Glued To The Tube

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Music, Self Improvement, TV Shows on February 20, 2015 at 9:37 am

Cute Guys glued to the tube

I know your television has been on – what have you been watching?
I keep the DVR full, I’m always show clocking.

I’m into #HTGAWM and la bella Analise. You may have heard of her?
She’s that chocolate chic, whose knowledge is thick on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER.

how to get away with murder FLIRTABC is out of control, they’re demanding my attention without cessation.
I know I am not alone based on the viewer alert tones I receive from FB nation.

If you are watching this show, then you know that we’re down to the wire,
the season finale is soon to come, yet, so many irons are still in the fire.

The creation and writing fulfills my desire to get more from “my comfy-couch time”.
Shondra Rhimes is growing a “David E. Kelley vine” and yields a great deal of my sunshine.

I love it, still my DVR has many slots available – increasing my capacity for “handle,”
so dare I miss an episode of Olivia Pope and them folk on ABC’s SCANDAL?

scanal FLIRTI shall not. The writing is hot and I do dig it very much.
I’ve got a thing for Hulk ‘ – because he’s got that “down-for-Liv” love.

Ride or die. Hulk said he’s a rider now, and that he is no longer “the killer.”
Still, the way he chooses to incapacitate one – belongs in a psycho thriller.

He’s the real deal’a, yo – and I can respect that.
NEW 411: I’ve got eyes for Mary Jane’s new cat.

BEING MARY JANE can’t be easy,
but a ride on her latest boy toy ‘sho makes it look breezy.

 

You can B.E.T. me every Tuesday from 8-9, because I will be in the cut.
The writers of #BMJ have got-it-going-on in scribbling out “grown folks stuff.”

Being Mary Jane w Brandon

Unfortunately, Mary Jane and Brandon don’t talk much…

 

I tend to like it rough and they don’t sugar coat too much.
I love that they encompass a lot of insight: the good, the bad, the love…

I’d love to give Mara Brock a big ol’ )))HUG(((!! I appreciate her
for contributing to facilitating our cheesy sitcom past – into a blur.

empire FLIRTThen there’s that awesome hustle and flow of business and lyrical fire —
that exists within the hip hop frames of Lucious and Cookies EMPIRE!

The writing on this show calls out and really speaks to me;
birthed from the same hands as The Butler – it’s the handy work of Lee.

Lee Daniels is the creator of this show and he did not at all miss
when he ‘took it to the head’ and casted Henson and Howard in the mix.

The other actors in the cast roster, are largely faces I do not know,
and that’s part of the hook that keeps me glued to this action-packed show.

The music is pretty good too. The score is composed by sir Timbaland.
He produced Missy Elliott and the sill beloved Alliyah. Remember them?

Blackish-PosterThen there’s the creator of that show BLACK’ISH – he’s got his hands full pulling this duty.
He’s taken-on introducing blacks to the world, via Anthony Anderson and Tracie Ellis’ booty.

Kenya Barris has once again proven that when it comes to show producing – he can do it.
I learned about this show via Exec. Prod. Larry — from The Daily Show with Stewart.

Speaking of Jon Stewart — he’ll be ending his show’s broadcast this year.
The man who divvied us the 411 via laughter-to-tears.

It’s been real funny, indeed. May his exit cause no lumps in the throat;
let us move on and laugh well with those folk on FRESH OFF THE BOAT.

My brief research on the shows creator left me feeling diversely strong –
the creator crafted this from a life of his own: the creator’s name is Eddie Huang.

FOTBI’m a passenger watching #FOTB and I must say based on the noted behaviors,
I have duly been missing out on laughing with my Asian neighbors.

My direct neighbors are of Asian decent and from 3-years passed to this day,
We are cool, with no friction to invoke fool — everyday we just smile and wave.

Digging Eddie Huang’s mind, makes me want to interact with them more.
This is a direct cause and effect from televisions diversity score.

I love it – I love it! Therefore, I remain intently in tune,
I’m Qui
