The Privileged, The Pompous, Derailed and Delusional (PPDD)

My initial idea for this piece was to describe those in its title. I became part of a stream that featured them instead, enabling us to read their thoughts, as they scribed their ideas and beliefs themselves. From a friend’s Facebook page who realized she’s going to have to re-evaluate some friends…

Call A Spade a FUNKIN’ Spade

Call A Spade a FUNKIN’ Spade

In the midst of turmoil, even when the worst of matters are smacking folks of all cultures in the face, a spade gon’ be a spade.  “Call a Spade a Spade”: To tell the truth about something, even if it is not polite or pleasant.  Pertaining to ethnicity, the phrase predates the use of the word “spade” as an ethnic slur against black people, which was not recorded until 1928.  This item encompasses a bit of both regarding recent public and personal occurrences.

FUNKY FATHER’S DAY

FUNKY FATHER’S DAY

The first year I started this blog, I wrote a poem for Mothers http://museumofuncutfunk.com/2009/05/20/funky-mothers-day/.  I sent it out to all my friends that are moms via e-mail and made it my sixth blog installment.  Earlier this week, an old friend of mine lost his dad, and another reminded me that Father’s Day was this Sunday.  So I took time out to write a little something, in hopes it will allow “My Fellow Fathers” to have a better Monday.

1964 Treasure Chest Comic – A Black President!!!

The 1964 story line Pettigrew for President featured a Black candidate for the Presidency of the Untied States. Considering the times, this was a pretty risky story line for Treasure Chest, or for that matter, any other comic title in America. The serialized story began in the issue cover dated January 30, 1964, Volume 19, #11. Treasure Chest #19 is in the archives of the Museum Of UnCut Funk.

Rosa Parks has become the first Black woman to be honored with a life-size statue in the Capitol. The statue of Mrs. Parks captures her waiting to be arrested on Dec. 1, 1955, after she refused to give up her seat for a white passenger on a crowded segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She is seated, dressed in a heavy wool coat and clutching her purse as she looks out of an unseen window waiting for the police.
