Avoiding Sexual Harassment

It seems that I am lucky to be a mature settled married man. But, there are many other men who seek sex among consenting adults. And, there’s the rub – “consenting adults”. Actually how does a guy get consent without such actions being considered “sexual harassment”? A lady friend of mine, a platonic friend, told me it was considered sexual harassment to tell a woman she has beautiful hair. I was surprised at my ignorance.

The Republican Party is dead

The Republican Party is dead. Trump killed it. I wondered how 74 million Americans could vote for a dishonest, racist liar for president. I know the popular Republican political strategy is telling  lies. It has been very effective but Trump has mastered that ‘big lie’ skill beyond expectations which would have made Hitler proud.

Despite Trump’s  complete

“Give advice: IF peopled don’t listen, let adversity teach them.”

--African Proverb

 

     Nearly everyone has heard of Samson; the man who was blessed by God in the Old Testament Book of Judges (Chapters 13-16 KJV) to begin taking the Philistines down a few pegs on the humility meter.  Samson had a good run but lacked focus on God and his true mission. He wound up having his hair cut (the source of his st

Black stories. Black talent. Black creators. Black History.

I am going to go out on a limb here and say this year’s month-long celebration of Black History, is worthy of next-level turn up. Why go above and beyond more than any year prior? Because the last 12 months have shown that life for the descendants of chattel slaves hasn’t changed nearly as much as we would like and/or want to believe. We are in the fight of our lives while living in a Nation in crisis (e.g. suspect vaccines too reminis

Armed with unmatchable swagger and true grit, Razzi exploded onto the scene back in 2018 with his debut single “Pour Up The Henny” – and every step forward he’s taken with his career ever since has shown he’s miles ahead of the rest & been setting the standards for the Rap/Trap game to raise up to.

Swiggle Mandela will be releasing his latest single "Needed" Friday, Jan. 15. The song is his first with Compton-based Shady Records rapper Westside Boogie. The song also features Swiggle's brother Jasey Cordeta, and LA-based singer Kenai.
 
"Needed" is a catchy, melodic dance hit that doesn't hold back on sentimentality and thoughtfulness in the verses from Mandela, Boogie and Cordeta. "It's an honor to work with Boogie, and to be able to give my brother Jasey Cordeta and the homie Kenai the oppo
