This post is not to start a debate about Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) vs. (Predominately White Institutions) PWIs. I feel like that argument has been beaten in the ground, spit on and burned. Anyway I decided to write this post to big up HBCU's (mine in particular) since they have been getting such negative press lately.

I remember as a high school senior I was torn between what schools I wanted to apply to. I had superb grades and participated in lots of extracurricular activities. I also had decent SAT scores. I had my mind set on attending a HBCU. My neighborhood consisted of mostly minorities. My high school was about 98% African American. So in my mind I saw no other option. Then my guidance counsel stepped in. She suggested that I think about applying to upper tier schools since I was smart and talented enough to get accepted (she really pressed Ivy league schools). In the end I applied to the University of MD, Howard University, North Carolina A&T, Temple University, George Washington University, Hampton University and the University of MD Eastern Shore (UMES). I got full academic scholarships to all of them with the exception of NC A&T (partial). My counselor was upset I didn't apply to Princeton. lol.

So now to my AP US History teacher, Mr. Shabazz. He was probably my favorite high school teacher. He really inspired me. He made us memorize the poems Excuses and Invictus and then recite it in front of the class. He was an alumnus of Hampton University and member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. Mr. Shabazz took me on a trip to Hampton University and on the way down he explained that I should go to Hampton so I could follow in the rich tradition of great scholars that went to Hampton. He also explained to me that Sigma was the only way to go right?. When he found out my top two choices were Hampton and UMES, he was like why would I want to go start my own tradition when I could be one of many in a long line of great scholars. What he didn't realize was that his argument was pushing me towards UMES.

So in the end I decided to attend the University of MD Eastern Shore. I'm so glad that I decided to go to UMES. I had the time of my life at UMES. I became a man there and it helped shape me into who I am today. I've also met lifelong friends there. Shout out to Club2300 (I wonder if we still have our Blackplanet page w/ the campus dimes of the week).

I'm an advocate for HBCU's and I urge anyone who feels like they would benefit from going should. I have never regretted not going to a higher tier school because I know once I earn my other degrees, my potential employers won't really care where I received my bachelor's degree. I also feel like I received a high quality education. In my opinion no matter how good apparently the school you went to, it won't matter if you don't have an aptitude to learn.

Cool Guys Always Finish First

Shout out to and DJ Cannon for putting out the 'Cool Guys Always Finish First' mixtape (click the link to download it). I'm loving it. It has a nice mix to it plus it talks about cool guys so you know that I can relate to it joking-but not really. Some of my favorite artists are featured on the mixtape. Nadledge, Little Brother, Wale, Al Fatz, etc.

Chilling With No Makeup On

Sweatpants, hair tied, chilling with no make up on. That's when you're the prettiest I hope that you don't take it wrong.


Maybe its just me but I love it when a woman can lay around the house with her hair in a ponytail and she doesn't have to get all made up. If she looks better like that then its really a thing of beauty. Ladies, sometimes your man might just prefer you to just be you. Forget the glitz and glamor. The girl next door is a good look. Trust me.

Ne-Yo said it best in Let Just Be.

We can watch a DVD baby Sit up in the house and be,
just be there
You ain't gonna get cute for me,
I prefer you with no make up,
in one of my t-shirts
Bunny slippers on your feet, girl
And just try to be all up under me

On the couch in front of the TV

Baby that's gangsta

So as promised after I posted my turnoffs, these are the things that I'm instantly attracted to and are my turnons.

Freshly Arched Eyebrows

I love to see a woman with fresh eyebrows. It brings out the eyes and overall face. On the contrary there is nothing worst than a woman with bushy eyebrows, looking like two caterpillars on her face.


I'm a sucker for intelligence and to me eyeglasses make a person look smarter (even though it may not be true). But at first glance a woman in a nice pair of frames that fits her face perfectly is a turnon.

Nice Teeth

When I talk to someone I tend to focus on their mouth, so pretty nice, white teeth are definitely a plus.

Nice Calf Muscles.

A woman with a nice pair of calves that are accentuated by the right pair of heels will definitely get a second look from me. I have more but I think that I'll stop there. lol.
So, what are some things that you are instantly attracted to?

Last night I had a dream that I was driving with my friend Ashley J. down this 4 lane highway (2 lanes in each direction). Each side was separated by trees. I was doing my usual speed of about 75-80mph. The weather was clear but out of nowhere I drive upon a lot standing water sitting on the highway. I didn't have time to brake so as soon as I hit the water my car started to hydroplane and spin out of control. I just knew that I was going to hit a tree. Amazingly, we came came like 3 feet from hitting a tree and the car stopped. Ashley and I just looked at each other in amazement before I proceeded to continue driving.


Since I'm out of town I don't have access to my dream interpretation book. I did look some stuff up on net and this is what I found.

To dream that you are driving a vehicle, signifies your life's journey and your path in life. The dream is telling of how you are moving and navigating through life. If you are driving and cannot see the road ahead of you, then it indicates that you do not know where you are headed in life and what you really want to do with yourself. You are lacking direction and goals. Alternatively, driving a car in your dream, is analogous to your sex life and sexual performance. Consider how you are driving and what kind of car you are driving and how it relates to your waking sex life.

Its Your Duty...

I subscribe to joebuddentv on youtube. Dude is actually pretty funny. This morning I catch this video below. Basically Budden is kind of upset because he is horny and his girl, Tahiry (if you don't know you better ask somebody) wont have sex with him.

Budden's argument is that if she is his significant other then it is her obligation to please him. If she doesn't then she can't get mad if he goes out the next day and fucks another chick (although he said he would never do that). She told dude he better go jerk off. rotf. He was on pussy punishment. I don't understand this either but that's for another blog topic. What say you? If you are in a committed relationship, is it your duty to make sure that your partner is pleased sexually? This question goes for men and women although I don't think many women have this problem compared to men.

Everyone has a list of things that they look for when observing the opposite sex. Said list might be something you would want them to have and it might be something that would make you run in the opposite direction you are not looking for. A couple of posts back I blogged about the fact that I don't like bad weaves. This is an example of something that I think is a big turnoff. Here are a couple of more things that I think are turnoffs.

~Summer time is quickly approaching and women are going to start having their feet on display. Please women, have your toe/foot/heel game on point. Pedicures are your friends. Get to know a pumice stone or something. Nothing is worse than a beautiful woman with jacked up feet. Whenever I see a good looking woman with hammertime it reminds me of Eddie Murphy in Boomerang.

~Another thing that bugs me is when women have chipped finger nail polish. Your hands are a part of your body that you look at all day, so why not make sure they look nice (people who know me may call me a hypocrite because I bite my nails). On a woman it just bugs me.

~Summer time is when a lot of black women get braids. I'm a fan of braids. I understand it costs y'all a lot to get them done and you sit in the hair salon or someone's kitchen for hours on end getting them put in. One thing I can't stand about them is when women can't let them go. New growth is not whats hot in the streets. I swear its not.

What are some things that are instant turnoffs to you when it comes to the opposite sex? What are some things that make you cringe and give you the the o_O face? My next post is going to be things that are instant turnons when it comes to the opposite sex.

ETA: This post was not made to offend anyone and if you are offended then good. Do something about it. lol.

White Men/Black Women

I personally love black women. I've never been one of those black guys who has had fantasies of being with an "other". I love everything about black women. I love the many hues of a Black woman's skin--the reddish-brown cinnamons, the golden honeys, the milk chocolates and jet black coffees, no cream. I love the black woman's inner temperament--fragile and pretty like a china teacup one minute and hard and complex like a Chinese puzzle the next. Most of all I love Black women because Black women are the epitome of beauty, the giver of life, a steadfash protector and a nurturer.

With that said, white men love black women as well. Its nothing new. Even Thomas Jefferson had to sample Sally Hemings sweet nectar. This song is further proof. Shout out Azza for putting me onto this song. I actually find it kind of funny yet sad at the same time.

Young Money Boyz


**I respect Lil Wayne for his rap skills. He is a pretty decent rapper compared to a lot of artists into today's game**

Now that I've gotten that out the way, I think that Lil Wayne is one of the most overrated rappers in the game right now. I don't think he could hold a candle to Phonte (of Little Brother), Naledge (of Kidz in the Hall), Drake and a whole plethora of other rappers. I know what your thinking to yourself. "Who the hell are these people?" I can even name some commercial rappers that can kill Wayne lyrically. Main one being Fabolous. Yes I said Fab kills Wayne. All day every day. Wayne has put out some garbage verses lately.

Wayne isn't all bad though. He has signed some artists that I can roll with (mainly Jae Millz and Drake [speculation]). Wayne and rest of Young Money (Jae Millz, Drake, Gudda and Mack Maine) released a video called 'Every Girl'. I don't know bout the hook to this one. I love sex just as much as the next person if not more. But there is no way I would want to have sex with every girl in the world. There are some creatures out there. o_O

Anyway check out the video.

*ETA-video was removed. so you can only listen*

Nike Air Yeezy

Twice a year we all face the chore of rotating wardrobes. Fall and Winter clothes need to be moved to a place where they will not hinder access to one’s Spring and Summer wardrobe. With Spring come thoughts of warm weather, outdoor activities in the sunshine, and perhaps a new love interest.

For Spring I want to cop the new Nike Air Yeezy's. I'm a big sneaker fan and I haven't really been feeling a lot of sneakers that have dropped in the past couple of years. This is why everyone wants to rock retros. The only thing about the Yeezy's is the price tag. Its rumored to run around $215. The sneaker is suppose to be a non-profit shoe which means Kanye West will not be profiting from the sales. If he isn't then I wonder who is (Nike perhaps? o_O). Footlocker has confirmed the release date of the second colorway of the Yeezy as the 2nd of May. I haven't paid more than $170 for a pair of sneakers since my junior year of college when I copped these joints:

I want to cop both pairs of Yeezy's pictured above so that would run me about $430 (w/o taxes). That's definitely not going to happen unless some people contribute to the 'Get Tunde some Yeezy's' Fund. All donations are tax deductible. lol
