Kelis Performing Live, And Bringing Her “Friday Fish Fry” To The Truck!***messymandella***

       You either hate Kelis or love  Kelis.

Kelis is an acquired taste, that can’t be categorized by one and only  musical genre, her stylized  almost rapping, raspy  lower octave voice, and her distinctive beat riding is her sound and of course gained her fame, and a hit song, “Bossy.”

           Kelis has a fashion peculiarity about her, that at times comes under scrutiny. Her voice is mocked at times, and even some fool put her on a list as one of the “Ugliest Women List” which is simply not true.

       Kelis is of African-American, Chinese, and Puerto Rican descent and her eyes and her soybean colored skin, is unique but exotic beautiful.

        Her creativity and her fashion accessorizes her confident and unyielding ability to still have faith that her record career, will eventually earn another  Grammy Nomination. Maybe it  this time for Kelis she can prove her  naysayers wrong?

Maybe

       Kelis  surprisingly is a  professional chef, and recently attempted to live  a low-key life professional life, but  her personal life could never leave mainstream media.

She constantly has suffered backlash in the spotlight, for her divorce.

Kelis the chef, enlisted her own recipes as her track list for her new release “FOOD.” The author has also landed her own television show on “Saucy & Sweet” that is currently  on The Food Channel, but also is accessible for personal viewing  on-line. Kelis never embodied many octaves, in her raspy and often criticized voice.

         She however utilized  her fashion exploration and personal marriage  drama to stay in the limelight. Even if it was bad press, that press apparently became beneficial to her new-found success.

         Here is a live performance sponsored by Morning Comes Eclectic of her new single, Friday Fish Fry” and she should come visit us in South Carolina. We always appreciate a good fish fry, and here is the often discussed, but rarely seen, Kelis.

Since We Didn’t Listen The First Damn Time,Here Are More “Jewels” From Pee Wee Kirkland’s Life!***messymandella***

Once again, Let us revisit these jewels.It is mandatory that I  show love to our “Street Legends.” I am not bigging up the game, because you can’t win from it; but you can learn from it!

            Pee-Wee Kirkland‘s life unfolded but only a few of those moments are on film. Pee Wee’s life and other street stars like Karlton Hines, and Earl “The Goat” Manigault  have their own underworld tragedy’s and decisions that solidified their future.  

               One thing undebatable in the culture is that every man who serves a prison system  could tell you when and where they “got caught slipping.” What  you choose  is the most important factor at that moment, but  short-term gratification will always derail a “Street Legend.”

                Pee-Wee was in “The Game”  and told the Chicago Bulls recruiter that he had more money in his pocket right now than that $15,000 they were offering.

Pee-Wee   played in prison from 1981 to 1988 in La Tuna, Texas. In the Anthracite Basketball League of central Pennsylvania he scored 100 and 135 points in one game.

REVISTED: Redemption:The Legend Of Richard “Pee- Wee Kirkland”***messymandella***

I am reblogging it because I was asked too. I wrote this piece in January. Thanks for reading!

         Richard “Pee-Wee” Kirkland is a premier Harlem Legend  because of his business sense and undeniable talent. It doesn’t matter what you have learned in your History classes about a handful of  Black Activist, you had to miss one. The Rucker Park is not only a legend of Harlem but the place where Kareem Abdul Jabar even graced the court.

            Our  “Legends” are missing from the History Books. We as an Urban force must investigate and gather information on  our urban culture, our legends need their stories told, and we need  to past these stories down to the next generation. Numerous people have came through Harlem, after the “Harlem Renaissance.” You will not read about these  African- American men and women in a Southern History Books. These men and women are not considered heros. What makes a hero, and when do we become a legend? Your story has to be told, it will help someone who may have assumed that path would bring them to riches. You can save a life, and money that would be used for that prisoners. You are a hero, if you can stop one girl from selling her body for drugs, or any man from supplying his mother with drugs. Every little action will start positive energy in out communities.

           It is mandatory that I  show love to our “Street Legends.” I am not bigging up the game, because you can’t win from it; but you can learn from it!

            Pee-Wee Kirkland‘s life unfolded but only a few of those moments are on film. Pee Wee’s life and other street stars like Karlton Hines, and Earl “The Goat” Manigault  have their own underworld tragedy’s and choses that solidified their future.  One thing undebatable in the culture is that every man who serves a prison system  could tell you when and where they “got caught slipping.” What  you choose  is the most important factor at that moment, but  short-term gratification will always derail a “Street Legend.”

         Pee-Wee Kirkland  walked through the doors of “The Rucker” gymnasium founded by Holcombe Rucker, “The Rucker” showcases African-American talent in the Harlem and surrounding neighborhoods. Holcombe Rucker  awarded  scholarships to the lower class residents second class citizens because of the color of their skin. In 1969  Pee-Wee Kirkland had a chance to play for the “Chicago Bulls” but he could not leave the Drug Game. When they discussed signing benefits and the contractual agreement he wasn’t interested.

         Pee-Wee was in “The Game”  and told the Chicago Bulls recruiter that he had more money in his pocket right now than that $15,000 they were offering. So, he shot down a reality for a street dream. Pee Wee became a Basketball star, but it was behind the Prison walls and mandatory rules with no freedom that he had at “Rucker Park.” In prison he scored 465 points in 8 games, just imagine if he would have signed that Bulls Contract…

According To Wikipedia, Pee-Wee   played in prison from 1981 to 1988 in La Tuna, Texas. In the Anthracite Basketball League of central Pennsylvania he scored 100 and 135 points in one game.[5]

After you watch this video you will see that Pee- Wee Kirkland is telling you exactly what I have been preaching  since the beginning of messymandella.com.

We have to change our own destiny and stop creating havoc in our  own communities.

Freedom came once Pee-Wee, as a man, matured and used self evaluation and acceptance to move forward.

I don’t care who you are and what you are doing; I believe in you and apparently so does Pee-Wee Kirkland.

Maybe you don’t want to hear the message from a prissy, petite light-bright chick?

Maybe you will  accept the message from someone who knows what we are into now, and how we are putting fuel  to our personal and cultural inevitable destruction.

 We have to make change!

I had look at myself, I judged people who have unsavory titles as automatic enemies before even learning who they were. I am not perfect, I matured in the process. Once you continuously demean people who pushes them further into destruction. I learned that and regret that, and now is the time for us to work together to improve our situation. We have too many people with commissary books, and unplanned baby mama drama.

We have to do better or the Civil Rights Movement wasn’t even worth the fight!

Ebony Bones Is At It Again! ***messymandella***

 

I have tried and I have tried.

I listen to any and every kind of music.

You all know that!

I just don’t get gimmicks.

I don’t like artist that want you to look , instead of listen.

That is the problem with Kreashawyn, and Lil B and others.

If you have the fashion swagger,please have the talent.

I have listened   AGAIN and STILL….

HELL NO!

Maybe I Was Born A Bad Girl? ***messymandella***

My Happiness is my own, you can be a part of it , if you would like to be!

No matter what happens in my life,  I have to decide how I will deal with it on a daily basis but not let it consume my existence.

I need love and understanding,  just like you! 

Are you around people who want you to change the world?

Do you believe that your voice should be heard?

I do!

I believe that we have the government and our moral and religious codes that enable us to decide what we create in life!

You also have to plant that seed of humanity to grow!

I don’t sleep with married men, steal, kill, or snatch lace-fronts!

Those are things that remain part of my strong belief system.

Then there is that side of me that my parents say was a little distracting…

I would run away with my teddy bear, Rail Road Pup.

I would give strangers wrong names so it would take longer for my parent to find me after I ran away.

I would clap when my parents would find me, like it was a game or some mission.

I could have ended up on America’s Most Wanted!

On many occasions, I would also run down the street, by unlocking the door knob.

I was too damn short to close it back…

Yes, I would leave it flying open!

My dad said I would smirk at him before I would throw mashed potatoes on the wall of any restaurant!

He claimed that I knew EXACTLY what I was doing!

If you know me now,  you would know some things don’t change.

So,  Maybe I  got a little “Sasha Fierce” (No Illuminati) inside of me!

Do you?

Colorism:The Slave Designed Hatred ***messymandella***

SA

We are brainwashed thanks, to our  Willie Lynch mind-set and  media obsession with skin color. We are  embarrassed with our  nappy hair. Does that make yourself more European? We have natural hair treatment that we used to avoid nappy hair. You can add extensions and weave with an silkier texture. It still does not mean you are unhappy with your race. Weave has a negative connotation and women debate, and have to defend the ideology of weave.  Now, the skin bleaching cream is a horse  of another color(no hair pun intended) because it is shameful that you hate your skin.

” I Was tired of being ugly.”

Even in songs people want a “Yellow” women like it is a trophy. When did black become ugly? Black became ugly during slavery and the House Slaves were usually mulattoes. The darker skinned  slaves were treated as second class slaves and were required to be in the field. Our generation wouldn’t doubt their beauty unless this hatred  is taught.  We stopped loving ourselves.

You can’t leave your job dark-skinned and then show up the color of  Katy Perry.

Something is wrong here, mentally not physically.

Here is singer dencia Denecia!

Apparently, The Willie Lynch Letter Has Become A Mission Statement!***messymandella***

We have dragged into our own ignorance.

This letter explains our hood actions that are happening write(I do mean WRITE) before our eyes-***messymandella***

” I HAVE A FULL PROOF METHOD FOR CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that, if installed correctly, IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies and it will work throughout the South. Take this simple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is “AGE,” but it’s there only because it starts with an “a.” The second is “COLOR” or shade. There is INTELLIGENCE, SIZE, SEX, SIZES OF PLANTATIONS, STATUS on plantations, ATTITUDEof owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair, course hair, or is tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of action, but before that, I shall assure you that DISTRUST IS STRONGER THAN TRUST AND ENVY STRONGER THAN ADULATION, RESPECT OR ADMIRATION. The Black slaves after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for HUNDREDS of years, maybe THOUSANDS. Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD black male vs. the YOUNG black male, and the YOUNG black male against the OLD black male. You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks. But it is NECESSARY THAT YOUR SLAVES TRUST AND DEPEND ON US. THEY MUST LOVE, RESPECT AND TRUST ONLY US. Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity.IF USED INTENSELY FOR ONE YEAR, THE SLAVES THEMSELVES WILL REMAIN PERPETUALLY DISTRUSTFUL. Thank you gentlemen.”

Brandon Robinson, 20, of Orangeburg , Murdered At South Carolina State University***messymandella***

       Parents advise and instill in their children to go to college, and stay away from the dangers of the hood.  Parents may not understand how strong the hood mentality is, and how it will continuously rob generations of potential fathers and leaders. We have our own Black Holocaust happening now, but we just keep dancing…

        South Carolina State is a historically black school, with approximately 4000 African-American students. S.C. State, has earned national attention because of their Marching Band and their Home Coming traditionally celebrated by thousands from everywhere, not just South Carolina. As of lately, some question attending these events because of the violence that usually occurs in the vicinity of South Carolina State.

        As Brandon was walking through his College Campus, four men ambushed him in gunfire. Onlookers witnessed an argument. All the details are not yet available. He was found inside of his dorm room. Once help arrived, the victim was transported to the local hospital. He was pronounced dead after the incident that occurred approximately at 1:30 P.M. where three other suspects are still at large. No motive has been established, but it doesn’t matter what the motive is anyway. Why? He was in college to have an inspirational and enduring life,and that is where his life ended.

He never even reached the legal drinking age

R.I.P.
