You already know!! I will pay tribute every Wednesday to those stricken, like myself, with the affliction of ashiness. 4 out 5 African American males don't have adequate access to the lotions and cremes that they need. Together we can make a difference! When the going gets tough, the tough slap some cocoa butter on that shit!!
I HAD to! This got such positive response, I just decide to make it the blog post for the day! Enjoy! Share it! Thanks for stopping by!
Clay Travis and James Franklin Go "One on One"
You’ve had a pretty bad run lately if the first picutre that pops up on Google images is a mugshot…
Enter Creflo Dollar.
See, Creflo Augustus Dollar, Jr. is an televangelist, pastor, and the founder of the non-denominational World Changers Church International. He’s not a good guy. He teaches his 30,000 memeber church the Prosperity Theology. Basically, he tells his flock that God wants all of them to be rich. But, in order for them to get rich, they have to make sure he has money to fuel his 2 Bentleys and private jet. What kind of shit is that? In fact, Creflo’s pockets are where you can find most of Evander Holyfield’s career earnings, and this nigga ain’t ever fought NOBODY… Or has he?
“As a father I love my children and I always have their best interest at heart at all times, and I would never use my hand to ever cause bodily harm to my children,” Dollar said in a statement.
Dollar was arrested, and has been accused of slapping and choking his 15 year old daughter in a heated argument. First of all, I can’t remember ever having an argument with my parents. If so, it would have ended much like this, and I probably would have deserved it. A lot of you reading this were done the same way, and we survived. I think to some extent, it makes us better people, although at the time we thought it was the worst shit ever.
It is said that Creflo’s daughter wanted to go to party at 1:00AM. She’s 15. She ain’t got NO business being ANYWHERE at 1:00 in the morning, except in her bed asleep, or wherever TF (The FUCK), her daddy tells her to be. Period.
And if you can’t understand this, you’re probably one of these people who falsely believe children should have rights at home. My Constitutional rights didn’t apply to me at my house. Creflo was trying to prevent what Sarah Palin couldn’t prevent from happening in her home. Contrary to what MTV tells us, being 15 and knocked-up, AIN’T what’s hot in the streets.
I’m not saying Medieval torture is necessary for raising kids. I AM saying that people need to do what they have to do, to keep them in check. Kids shouldn’t talk back to their parents, without having to deal with something in return. There wasn’t much dialogue at my house, mostly monologues I had to listen to… whether I liked it or not. For the most part, I was where I was supposed to be, and if I wasn’t, as Lee Crowe’s boy Sho Nuff says
I think Creflo is a crook and should go to jail, but not for disciplining his daugther in the way he’s alleged to have done it. We don’t even know what she said to him. Does that matter to you? It should. Whenever a kid is big and bad enough to talk shit to his or her parents, it’s time for them to get the Hell on! Maybe Creflo shoulda just put her little ungrateful ass OUT!
Sometimes, the only way to keep from kicking your kids’ asses, is to kick them out. They’ll see you were right eventually. Hopefully they’ll realize before it’s too late….
You already know what it is bitches!! I will pay tribute every Wednesday to those stricken, like myself, with the affliction of ashiness. 4 out 5 African American males don't have adequate access to the lotions and cremes that they need. Together we can make a difference! It takes a village to oil them knees......
Every time I turn on the TV these days, I see countless ads for beauty products for men and women. I think we all know the reason is because it sells. And why does it sell? That’s right… Nobody likes ugly. According to the old folks, even “God don’t like ugly!”
Enter Vanderbilt Head football coach James Franklin. He doesn’t like ugly either.
Earlier this week the coach was the subject of an interview on 3HL, an afternoon sports talk show on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, TN. He said some things that were probably meant to be tounge-in-cheek, but also probably had a hint of truth in there as well.
Jimmy Frank’s statements:
“I’ve been saying it for a long time, I will not hire an assistant coach until I’ve seen his wife. If she looks the part, and she’s a D-1 recruit, then you got a chance to get hired. That’s part of the deal.”
“There’s a very strong correlation between having the confidence, going up and talking to a woman, and being quick on your feet and having some personality and confidence and being fun and articulate, than it is walking into a high school and recruiting a kid and selling him.”
Probably all true stuff there. Like it or not.
These statements rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. And by “a lot of people”, I mean “ugly ones”. Yeah. I said it. Ugly… and probably fat.
I didn’t make the rules on who is or isn’t physically beautiful. I contend that there are more people who are universally ugly than the reverse, though. Somebody said, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” ,and that person was right. They failed to tell everybody the other side of it, though. Everybody knows ugly when they see it. Everybody. Who do you know who wants to be ugly?
The truth of the matter is, the more attractive someone is, 73.7% of the time, the easier time they’ll have in life. I know you’ve seen at least one of the Shrek movies. He’s ugly. You remember how hard it was for him? The whole story is based on the principle that ugy stick with ugly. Tell me I’m lying. Shrek is a really good dude, but nobody takes the time to know that, because his “inner beauty” is wrapped-up in a big, green, ugly-assed ogre face. The movies suggest that the only way for him to be happy, is to find a girl who is as physically hideous as he is. Right? This is how it is in real life.
So, people shouldn’t be too bent out of shape about Jimmy Frank’s comments, nor should they be shocked. His would-be hiring practice is done every day. Remember that time you had an ugly hostess at a restaurant? Yeah, me neither. People don’t want a Susan Boyle being the first face customers see upon entry into their restaurant, do they? None of us were there to see her, but I’m guessing even Mary Magdalene was fine. Remember? God don’t like ugly, so I’m sure even JESUS wasn’t running around with an ugly ho.
This isn’t coming from one of the “Beautiful People”. I ain’t ever been mistaken for Denzel before, so I know how it is. You just have to deal, and I do. People generally are shallow. Especially dudes. So it’s easier for us to get by with not being as attractive as our female counterparts have to be. Also, money is “sexy” to some girls, so it doesn’t matter how we look to those women. That explains my hearing Dennis Rodman or Jay Z being referred to as “hot”. BUT, a lot of girls actually do look past the outer-shell, and try to see what’s on the inside… (See picture below)
Women have it WAY harder. They’re judged on a whole different scale. I mentioned Susan Boyle earlier. She is one of few people whose ugliness actually HELPED her. 94.6% of her appeal is how amazed people are that such an angelic voice, could come out the face of a gargoyle.
You know it’s true. So, with that being said, how many dudes you think are lined-up to wife that? 0. How many want to smash? -36 do. That’s how many.
So don’t be mad at Jimmy Frank. Be mad at yourself, because you do the same amount of judging people based on looks, as everybody else does. It’s human nature.
