So Rapper Lil Wayne is a Greenbay Packers football fan apparently. Yesterday he released a track called "Green and Yellow." So you know if the Packers win, this jam is going to blow just as the original song, "Black and Yellow" by Wiz Khalifa did. Hilarious!

February starts Black History Month in the United States of America and Canada. It is a way of celebrating African American culture and giving Blacks a sense of pride in their race. It has been celebrated annually since 1976 and originated from Carter G. Woodson's Negro History Week, which was started in 1926.
Blacks have always been big thinkers. Several inventions that we use on a day to day bases were actually created by Black people. For instance, Benjamin Banneker, a Black man created the very 1st clock. George Washington Carver another Black man discovered 300 different uses for the peanut. Dr. Daniel Hale Williams another Black man was the first person to perform a successful open heart surgery. There are so many more Black Inventors to name, but I'd be all day. So in your spare time, visit http://blackinventor.com to read up on other Black Inventors.
I began to notice how talented, creative and forward thinking Blacks were when I was around 14 year old. I was on a porch in the Lafitte Housing Projects and there were a group of little boys around 7-8 years old running around the courtyard throwing things up in the air. At first I just thought that they were playing in the dirt. Then I realized that they had put together an invention. They had taken empty coke cans that they had found on the ground, filled them with rocks and tied a plastic grocery bag to the the opener of the can. Once thrown in the air, these inventions would come down looking like parachutes or hot air balloons. I was totally amazed at how their minds worked. I mean how did they think of that? It was probably because they had to use what they had to make something to play with. So they used trash they found in the courtyard and they put their minds to work.
There are so many successful people in Black History and it's mostly people who put their minds to work when in the mist of not having much to work with. So this month as we celebrate Black History, put your minds to work. There is something that the world won't see unless YOU introduce them to it. BE GREAT BLACK PEOPLE!
HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH!!!

Rapper Nicki Minaj was on Saturday Night Live this Saturday doing her thing. Featured in a number of skits as well as a couple performances, it's safe to say that Nicki Minaj is WINNING! #thatisall

Twitter.com can be very entertaining. People tweet their thoughts and their whereabouts. They tweet how they feel, what they are eating, what they are selling. It gets mad funny when they subtweet though. What is a subtweet? A subtweet is a tweet that was subliminally tweeted with an underlying intent behind it. It could be towards another tweeter/celebrity, anybody. Nobody is safe from a subtweet, hence the tweets between Ciara and 50 Cent the other day.....Check them out below.
