I will never forget writing a 5-page essay about how inhumane, evil and murderous abortions were. I was a senior in high school and I got an A+ on my essay. Then I grew up and changed my views because I realized life is not always just black and white and some things are not my business.

I’m not a fan of idolizing no human being, but when it got to a point where people told her what she should and could not do and started to protest her shows, I had to write a blog because a facebook status simply

If you are not already happy, content, satisfied and financially savvy by yourself, no one else will ever be able to provide that because they come

I went to an IMPD forum regarding racial profiling in Indianapolis. The community shared disheartening stories and exclaimed outrage for being targeted on the sole basis of being black. Many of the panelist contributed greatly to the discussion, but Dr. David Hampton had the soundest observation. He said one of the biggest problems our community faces today is the lack of fathers. Of course we have all heard this statement before, but the way he explained it really struck a chord for me and hit home. He said, it’s usually
