Overstand that Black Americans no longer share a sense of common identity, challenges nor purpose. We have no identity leadership nor affinity commonality. We have and are devolving without any effort to enhance our cultural relationships.
It is a very sad, pitiful state of being. Our leaders just meet, greet, shake and fake. They suck up the swill of an illusory material paradise lost.

September of 2012, I said, "It would be great if I could get me and the kids to Texas". I was living in Orlando, FL. January of this year, 2013 I decided to move my family to Texas. I had just started Les Mills Pump and I just wanted to lose "some weight". I needed to buy a car, too.

Thought For Today. Veteran's Day is a time when all of us who have served in the military can wear our colors and be proud of what we were no matter where, or when we were in, or what our job was.
Each of us were a part of a whole and were important. The best single thing of all is that we are a part of a select group of people: A Band of Brothers & Sisters that are forever bound together.

Like a lot of Black folk back in the early 80's, I got a Jheri Curl. It was the thing to do with Black hair for both men and women. The Jheri Curl was a very popular hairstyle among us because it gave us the appearance of what a lot of us considered to be "Good Hair." Celebrities like Eddie Murphy, Rick James, Michael Jackson, James Brown, and many others wore the 'doo' which our culture embraced whole heartily.

A Personal Historical Perspective.
Orlando, my Ancestral home, is a far different place now than I remember. We have lived in Orlando going back seven generations on my mother’s maternal side, that we know of. My Great-Great Grandmother Maggie McDonald was here when my Great-Great Grandfather George Davis, Jr. moved here in the 1880’s from New Orleans.
