Thoughts-last-nights-debate.png
I had to think on it a while – pardon my expressive delay.

I enjoyed the CNN broadcast last night
and I think Sen. Warren did alright.

There were no hot topics that were cooled to the core,
and Sen. Warren did a great job at being honest and not sore.

Question_prompt
How many times has someone said something hurtful to you with no witnesses nearby;
tho when the tale was retold, that person chose to lie and deny?

Good people say foul stuff all of the time,
and a good handshake is not an appropriate response in-kind.

At the end of the debate Sen. Warren approached Sen. Sanders (they’re friends but not the best),
so when he extended his hand to shake her’s she clasped her fingers and drew them into  her chest.

Sen. Warren began to speak; though no audio was shared with us.
Tom Steyer approached the two in talks and his face looked like “hush.”

You know?
Tom’s smile turned into an “Uh-oh.”

Who knows what Sen. Sanders and Warren were saying?
Men devaluing women isn’t a joke and Warren isn’t playing.

Why on Earth would she handshake with a friend to ‘his not being honest?
Instead she approached him civilly to broach the topic; friends be up-on-it.

Real friends lay it out on the line, on the floor and on the table.
Bernies ‘overlay for the underplay‘ was an unappreciated fable

that Elizabeth Warren wasn’t feeling. Folks need to learn:
A woman can be sharp and graceful, but if you cross her, there’ll be a burn.

Even during ‘said burn,’ Sen. Warren was lady-like; she did it right and to that, I salute.
Mika Brzezinski missed the mark on MORNING JOE;  Sen. Warren displayed her value.

She spoke according to her own truths.
No shade to Sen. Sanders, tho, I bid him adieu.

Other than that, the debate was a smooth ride,

UNDERGROUND

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on April 15, 2016 at 9:07 am

WGN-underground8:15am — Good morning, Good morning! Let us do go down
to that WGN “Harriet Tubman spin“; the new series UNDERGROUND.

Have you been checking it out? It’s fresh and in its first season.
It’s the beginnings of our country. Framing history – is my viewing reason.

Sure I saw the mini-series:ROOTS. It’s a commitment to watch.
Underground puts it all in the round on a 60-min clock.

Weekly. I believe it broadcasts primetime on every Hump Day.
I DVR because the writing is sharp – history-piecing is at play.

The cast is exciting and they are quite on fire,
there was even a cameo by Jussie Smollett from Empire.

The main cast members are a mixed bag with great flow,
but lets go deeper, UNDERGROUND past the headline photo:

The actors are phenomenal, wading swamp waters and running barefoot on stones and grass…
Talk about “all terrain!” I blame the above the line creative cast:

This show is by no means a race to the finish but a slow and steady sprint.
This is ‘foundational worthy’ stuff – it has the potential to rehabilitate ‘the fringe.’

What ‘fringe?’ You may ask? What in the world am I talking about today?
I think this show is perfect to put into perspective our issue with RACE.

It’s something about the melanin in a black mans face that let’s all who look upon him save:
It is the look that history took and for centuries, reigned over and regarded him [them] as slaves.

It’s the beginnings of why your black neighbor may not smile, or be so quick to trust.
But if we look deeper at UNDERGROUND we may find the healing ingredients we need to thrust

us onto the next level. The ingredients look like understanding and human relation.
I’m Qui
Happy Friday to thee, I’m digging UNDERGROUND – it’s an early look at the foundation of our nation.

Are you looking? Drop in on the story of my kin,
UNDERGROUND airs on Wednesdays – primetime on WGN.
