Black Woman.

So, every now and then I dabble in a little poetry. I came across this poem and HAD to share it with y'all.

Black Woman.

See that Black Woman?

Love that Black Woman.

Never put another above that Black Woman.

Hold that Black Woman.

Dont try to mold or scold that Black Woman.

Respect that Black Woman.

Always protect that Black Woman.

Dont neglect that Black Woman, or disrespect that Black Woman.

Cry for that Black Woman.

Sigh for that Black Woman.

Dont lie to that Black Woman, or try to deny that Black Woman. Bask in the glory of that Black Woman; tell the lifelong story of that Black Woman.

Teach your daughters to be that Black Woman.

Help in the struggle to free that Black Woman.

Get on one knee and propose to that Black Woman.

Confide in the warmth inside that Black Woman Abide in unselfish pride of that Black Woman.

Dont put so much work into trying to ride that Black Woman. Appreciate that Black Woman.

Dont berate that Black Woman.

Don`t try to emasculate that Black Woman, or domesticate that Black Woman.

See that Black Woman?

Admire that Black Woman, Desire that Black Woman.

Be inspired by that Black Woman Use your mind to set fire to that Black Woman.

Be true to that Black Woman.

Always do for that Black Woman.

Slowly undress that Black Woman.

Gently caress that Black Woman.

Make Love to that Black Woman Kiss and hug that Black Woman.

Learn to know that Black Woman.

Dont be afraid to show that Black Woman, That you are willing to grow with that Black Woman.

Uphold that Black Woman.

Console that Black Woman.

Youre a fool, if you think you can control that Black Woman. Share with that Black Woman.

Be fair to that Black Woman.

Sincerely care for that Black Woman.

Always be there for that Black Woman.

Bow your head and pray with that Black Woman.

Remember to stay with that Black Woman.

Stop trying to just lay with that Black Woman.

Never mind what they say about that Black Woman.

No other will ever brighten your day like that Black Woman.

This is for every man who has been or is in love with a Strong Black Woman. Take this poems advice and treat her right, if you arent and you know if you are. For all the Women, no matter whats going on in your life keep your head up and know that there is a Man out there whos willing to treat you this way.

- Joe Frazier, a caucasian male.

Joe's my facebook friend, and he imed me asking me to read it. At first I was nervous; I didnt know WHAT sir was about to say. But when I read the first few lines, I was like, "okay...okay!!" I really appreciated the poem and the fact that HE wrote it. He nailed it. Funny how we cant [sometimes] get the same recognition from OURS.

Celebs Mourn AM's Death Via Twitter.

First off, Im still in shock, and now Im even more upset that I missed his and Jazzy Jeff's show. But hey, thats what ipods are for, right? It's crazy how fast the word spreads.

Many celebs expressed sympathy about the late DJ through tweets:

The Roots' Quest Love: "AM???!!!! WTF!!!!!!!....It's one thing to lose a teacher I never met. But it's some other sh*t to lose a teacher I knew."

106 and Park's Terrence J: "They say The good die young. Rest in peace AM. May God bless you"

Lindsay Lohan: "i can't believe this.. i'm in shock. why? why? r.i.p. adam"

Paris Hilton: "Adam and I were friends since I was 15. He had a heart of gold and was one of the kindest, funniest and most talented men I have ever met."

Cassie: "In shock about AM, he was really a great person. My love and prayers go out to his family and friends. RIP."

It's something how a person can touch the lives of so many people. Like is so short and death is so random these days. 2009 will be a year to remember.

Nicole Ritchie hasnt tweeted anything, as of yet but sources say she is very shocked to hear about the passing of her ex-fiancé. The two were engaged in 2005.

Wow, first her godfather [Michael Jackson] and now her ex-fiancé. My prayers go out to her, his family and his friends.

Check out this clip from DJ Jazzy Jeff and AM's visit to NOLA for the Barcadi B-Live Tour.

Remembering Aaliyah Dana Haugton.

["Forever Young" is the poem her brother Rashad wrote after her death]

Today, August 25, 2009 @ 6:45P, marks the 8 year anniversary of Aaliyah's Death. Aaliyah Haugton, Anthony Dodd, Eric Foreman, Scott Gallin, Keeth Wallace, Gina Smith, Douglas Kratz, Christopher Maldonado, and Luis Morales all died in the plane crash leaving Marsh Harbor, Bahamas where Aaliyah shot the video for Rock The Boat.

I was and always will be a big fan of Aaliyah. She is truly missed. Her posters still hang in my room, and her "A" will always be on my shoulder. At 6:45P, light a candle!

Sidenote: Isnt it crazy how Static Major appears in the video and now he's gone, too? Life is TOO short.

Below, is the last photo taken of the crew before they boarded the Cessna plane.

Check out the video from MTV Diary: Aaliyah, which was filmed a month before she died. Also, her final video, Rock The Boat.

Jamaal's 25th Birthday Party.

One of my close friends, Jamaal, had a birthday party this past weekend at one of the hottest bars in the city, Monkey Hill. He turned 25, and we all had a blast, despite the random people who kept trying to eat the food and that one little incident that almost caused a fight. *sighs* my people. smh. But aside from that, it was so much fun!!

The best thing about the party is that it really wasnt a party. The music wasnt loud, so it gave everyone a chance to be social, which is cool for me because I dont do screaming. =] It was a grown event. I was proud. Good job, Maal!
