The Story of Brandy and Jason

Jason recently saw a beautiful girl walking one day and decided to approach her. Her name was Brandy. She wasn't interested at first, but his persistence paid off and he not only got her phone number, but also a date for later on that night. Jason: Hey Brandy, open up it's me Jason Brandy: Coming opens door Jason: Hey sexy. Damn you looking good in that lil' fitted dress. Can I come in? Brandy: I thought we were going out? Jason: Yeah we are, I just gotta use the bathroom real quick. Brandy: Um...ok. He walks in and looks around the house. He sees that no one else is there. Jason: Can you show me where the bathroom is sexy? Brandy: Yeah...it's right here. But why are you looking at me like that? Why are you getting so close? Jason: Come here you know you want me. Brandy: No I don't, get off me. Jason, stop touching me. No Jason! Get off of me. Help! Somebody help me! Brandy fights back but is unsuccessful. Jason rapes her and leaves her on the floor then leaves. (1 week later) Jason calls. Brandy: Hello? Jason: Hey whasup sexy. Brandy: Why are you calling me. You took what you wanted now leave me alone. Jason: C'mon you know you wanted me. I knew it too. Brandy: How? Jason: I saw the way you was wearing that lil fitted dress. It hugged your curves. Showed off your cleavage n everything. You wanted me, I could see it in your eyes. That's the only reason you would've been asking for all that attention. So I gave it to you. You asked for it. Brandy: Well it's something you need to know. Jason: What? Brandy: I'm HIV positive. Jason: Wait, you're what?! Tell me you're lying. Brandy: No, I'm HIV positive. Don't act surprised. You wanted HIV, I could see it in your eyes. The way you took me against my will. The way you ignored me when I told you to stop. The way you forced yourself into me and without protection. So I gave it to you. You asked for it. Jason: You bitch! How could you do this to me?! Brandy: Everyone knows you rape girls Jason. And you blame it on them. That they somehow asked for it. That the way they dressed warranted your sex even though their cries for you to stop meant nothing. I was given HIV when I was just 14 from a guy like you. He blamed me, just like you did. I even believed him and tried to kill myself. But instead, I decided to...

Fruitvale Station: Undeniably Brilliant & Necessary

Written by: Derrick JaxnLast night I had the opportunity to watch Ryan Coogler's new movie, Fruitvale Station starring Michael B. Jordan as Oscar Grant. As expected, the story is a tragic and hardly uncommon one of a young black male being treated like the red headed step child of modern day America we're constantly being shown that we are. No spoiler alert here. But a bigger point is to be made by this movie that we're too afraid to touch on. Non-racist whites don't like to talk about racism or to acknowledge that racism is still a problem. Why? Because it usually means they're getting ready to be falsely accused of being racist. But because they're not, nor have been subject to racism(outside of mean looks), they see it as just a figment of our imagination and a thing of the past. I get it.  Blacks are constantly subject to racism but don't know who to really blame, so we blame white people because that's what history has taught us. Because we wrongfully blame them so much, it starts sounding like we're crying wolf and don't know what we're talking about even though we live it every single day when trying to go shopping, or being "randomly" stopped and frisked, or worse, shot in the back by a policeman while lying face down and unarmed. And those who are racist are playing on those frustrations by telling us it's not racism if no one says the N-Word....to our face. The sad part is, both whites and blacks are picking a fight with the wrong people. It's not each other that we need to wage war against, but instead the institutionalized racism that exists in our media and justice system. Laws designed by racist politicians that still haven't changed over the last 60 years, destructive images of black men that we've not only accepted but in many ways embraced, are only exposed in statistics we're too caught up in Youtube and Reality TV to actually see. This movie was masterfully done and necessary because it keeps the conversation of racial injustices alive while doing so in a very responsible manner. It doesn't paint white people as all being racist. In fact, it shows white people who were trying to help Oscar Grant in the midst of his untimely death, directly reflective of what's happening today. There are white people who are fighting alongside blacks to end racism, but we can't alienate them out of frustration of needing someone to blame. There's plenty of work to be done to finally end racism but Rome wasn't built in a day. We first...

Why Men Don’t Want to Get Married

Written By: Derrick Jaxn D. Wade has finally reached a multi-million dollar settlement with his ex-wife. The ex-wife who was arrested for attempting to abduct their children and then claimed to be homeless despite the (paid for)mansion, 4 cars, and $25,000 per month  she’s gotten from Wade since the two’s split. While claiming to be homeless, there just so happened to be a close friend of hers nearby with a home-made sign describing her homelessness to anyone who may have been curious. Right. This arguing over who gets what is nothing new, but I find the consistency of post-marital money issues interesting being that pre-nuptial agreements are so frowned upon. That’s like a parent who sees other babies wetting their underwear but refuses to buy diapers for their own child for fear they might actually need them one day. I know, not all women are like this. Most women are just tired of putting their all into a relationship without a lawful commitment to show for it, or being abandoned for another woman without any viable tools to make a man feel their pain. They're tired of having to answer to their family and friends about why they've been so loyal and why the man has yet to "put a ring on it". But it's gotten way out of hand. I’ve even noticed a trend of women advocating for holding out on sex until marriage. Not for religious reasons, but instead for a “Why Buy the Cow if You Get the Milk for Free” type of thing. Some even use the cover Stop giving a boyfriend husband benefits. Please understand that not having sex until marriage, whether for religious reasons or not, is by all means any woman’s right. But if you’re using your vagina to bait your man into marriage, you are pitiful at best. That’s not “thinking like a man”, that’s thinking like a woman who’d rather use sex as collateral rather than finding a man who knows her real value isn’t between her legs. Marriage is supposed to be about professing vows before God and letting the world know it’s time to respect that couple as a legitimate family unit. However, experience is teaching men that jumping the broom is now a “Just in case you try to leave, you’ll pay” contract. Cases like the one D. Wade is dealing with makes stalling for years on end much more likely. So how do you get a man to marry you? Stop trying. Date with a purpose, not a pressure. By all means, tell a man what your relationship goals are. When you get on the subject of...

He “Ain’t Shit”…but Is It Your Fault?

He “Ain’t Shit”…but Is It Your Fault?

You ain't shit, never was shit, ain't gone be shit, and ya Momma ain't shit. Now what?" Some people feel that the difference between a real man and an "Ain't shit" guy has absolutely nothing to do with a woman. Kinda true but...Newsflash: EVERY man has the potential to be both and there's something to be said about the role a woman plays in what she's presented. For instance: When you go to the club, I bet you wear something a little sexy, you accept a few drinks, and you jirate the night away without a worry in the world. Right? But...if you're in an interview for an office job, you're probably not singing at the top of your lungs, in a 3 point stance, dropping it like it's hot. What changed? Was it your character, your morals, or your home training? No. It was your environment, your surroundings, and the people around you in which you were intending to make an impression on. So this same principal applies to men. Remember, men are RE-actors. Working out is a reaction to women liking muscles, having a job is a reaction to women liking money, and wearing condoms is a reaction to STDs and surprise babies. So what does that mean for you? If you've attracted yourself a real man, one that has intentions on pursuing marriage and a family with the next woman he encounters, you can completely ruin that by disrespecting him or even worse yourself. He can be up for the Nobel Peace Prize but that won't keep him from bringing out the worst in him should you beckon for it with unnecessary stress. "ALL HE WANTED WAS SEX...JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER GUY" Real men catch hell on this one. How convenient it would be if we could detach our penises and put it in a safe until the time was right, but guess what, we don't work like that.The problem is, when women sift through to the good men, they think our hormones are on ice waiting for us to make our mind up about who we're going to marry, which is the case approximately 0.034% of the time(according to a recent study). You see, physical arousal is a God-given element of being human and an involuntary response to being attracted to someone. So yeah, real men like love sex too and it's not fair for you to hold that against us.  But if that's the only way you're making yourself valuable to us, we will accept it with a smile, and leave shortly thereafter it gets old much like the trademark of the "ain't shit"...
