True Thursdays: Maybe It’s A Good Thing That The Celeb Pastors Are Pedophiles

I know that’s an extremely controversial statement. However, I’ve been doing a little thinking, and all in all I think that the cases being brought against well-known pastors such as Bishop Eddie Long will only lead to positive consequences. Last night, I came across an article on Hip Hop Wired about another Black pastor, who is being accused of pedophilia in Las Vegas. Apparently, Pastor Billy Eckstine McCurdy like Long, who we won’t condemn just yet (I guess…), had inappropriate interactions with young boys in his church. Honestly, I am not surprised by the influx of reports concerning criminal pastors. I do, however, think that the media attention drawn to such stories is a result from the attention surrounding pastors like Eddie Long, whose name is known nationwide. I also think it’s a good thing that people are using a story like Long’s to come forward about their own traumatizing experiences with pastors. The whole situation with Black pastors kind of reminds me of when the Catholic church went under fire only several years ago for its pedophile priests. Once one priest made serious headlines, a slew of others soon followed.

Anyways, this post could go on forever. If you have any thoughts on the matter, I would love to hear them!

 

Wild Wednesdays: Who’d A Thunk It?

Kim Kardashian

While reading Access Hollywood today, I saw the news report that Kim Kardashian had crossed the 5 million mark in Twitter followers. Now, I know that Kim K. is popular, but THAT popular? Who’d a thunk it?

Personally, I do like Kim K., but I think that Khloe is the most entertaining one out of all the Kardashian sisters. Anyways, more power to Kim K. for managing to make a career out of practically nothing. Can I do that please? lol Also, it looks like Kim and  her sister Kourtney will be starring in a whole new reality TV series as titled Kim and Kourtney Take New York. Sound familiar? Yeah, I thought so.

p.s. If you want real wild news, check out the articles on Hip Hop Wired. Today, I learned that in Obion County, TN if you don’t pay the annual “fire protection” fee, the county’s firefighters will literally watch your house burn to the ground.

Check out the story here —> Firefighters Watch House Burn

Now, that’s wild!

Wild Wednesdays: You Can Become Famous Overnight

Then move into a better home the next morning! lol

Hola mi amigos.

I hope that everyone is doing well. If not, then I hope that this post can bring a little sunshine to your day. 🙂

Earlier this morning, I randomly decided to watch the Antoine Dodson rapist video on YouTube. I know…I know…lol

If the name Antoine Dodson doesn’t ring a bell, Antoine was the brother, who protected his sister from a rapist before speaking about the incident on the news. Although rape is definitely not funny, Dodson’s message to his neighbors a.k.a “Hide your kids! Hide your wife, and hide your husband!”  ended up paving the way to one of the most popular YouTube remixes ever, “Bed Intruder.”

Imagine my surprise when  Hip Hop Wired reported this morning that Antoine was able to move his family out of the projects with the money made from “Bed Intruder.” The song is being sold on iTunes, and is obviously making some serious bank.

If you’re one of the ones out of the Antoine Dodson loop, below is the news interview followed by the “Bed Intruder” song.

Personally, I just think this entire story is WILD. One, I’m a little humored that someone even thought to make a song out of Antoine’s statements. Pure genius I guess. Secondly, I think it’s wild that Antoine has become a real celebrity because of this song. Antoine even said that agents have contacted him… Lastly, I think it’s wild that even college bands have made the “Bed Intruder” song a part of their practices and performances.

Here’s a video of North Carolina A&T’s band performing “Bed Intruder,” and it’s really good!

This makes me wish I had attended a black school…lol

Anyways, I think it’s great that Antoine’s family was able to  turn a terrifying experience into something that helped them to better their lives. That’s what a positive and fearless attitude can do folks. 😉

p.s. Rape stories should not always become entertainment. Antoine’s famous from this whole incident, but honestly, not every news report needs to be turned into a ringtone. Just sayin’…
