Despite it all

Despite it all

I am so grateful that I have to let it be known
It’s either this or a perpetual bitch and moan

High gas prices, mortgage payments, utilities
Shout out to WE Energies

Genocide in Darfur, uprising in Syria
Burning Qurans in Afghanistan
The continued slavery of the Black Man

So many things that I could harp on
Dropped calls on my so called smart-phone

Cigarette prices on the rise steady
Don’t judge me, I’ll quit when I’m ready

Immature music playing on public radios
I remember the day when I freely used the words Bitches and Hoes

Not anymore, I have grown
Now I’m pissed that we don’t hear more people like Angie Stone

Senseless fighting over Nike shoes
I hope they’ve paid the bills that have come due

Despite all of these things that I consider some sort of bullshit
I am still grateful that I am alive to see it

My Humble Opinion on Beyonce’s Trip to Walmart

I’m conflicted by this. On one hand I applaud Beyonce for being generous and giving everyone 50 big ones! On the other hand I wonder why she didn’t pick another store, where that $50 would probably have gone further, possibly helping someone buy something like food and other necessities…not her CD.

To be fair, it does not appear that she put restrictions on the $50 but the picture of her buying her own CD was a hint toward what she wanted to get out of the visit. And because of the latter I recognize this behavior as Marketing 101.2 (osis).

It’s not a bad idea; actually it’s a really good one. The people that I saw in the pictures who were in that store (I can only go by my perception of the shoppers) did not appear to be low income or in need, maybe some of them were, I wasn’t there.

My question is, if these shoppers did not NEED that $50 to buy – for instance – the only gift their kid may have this holiday, would they be more likely to buy Beyonce’s CD?
