Happy Valentine's Day!


To day is Valentines Day and over at Facebook, the hate has been brewing. It seems like folks have issue with the day. Righteous people in particular. That really just cracks me up. I have noticed that Righteous people have a problem with most holidays that are communal for Americans… Memorial Day, Columbus Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Valentine’s Day, etc. And the argument is always the same…. “Black folks with KOS ain’t got no business celebrating the master’s holiday…” or something like that. Let me tell you something… I’m an educated Black Earth with 120 and my own 3 on it… I indulge in the holidays and I ain’t mad. NOR… will I let other jokers tell me how I’m supposed to feel or do.

Memorial Day… A day commemorating those who died in this country’s wars… Black people died in this country’s wars just like white people. Labor Day… A day when people with jobs get to take a breather. Black folks have jobs contrary to what the devil would have you believe. Thanksgiving… A commemorating thankfulness and family… Black folks are grateful and have families too. And those other days that are paid holidays…. HELL YEAH! But today….

It’s Valentines Day!!!! I like it. Now folks want me to think that I am wrong for asking the 7 to buy me some candy today because he can buy me candy any day of the year. That is true. It’s also true that I can buy me candy too. But that heart is only available at this time of year and I wants it! Folks would want me to think that the 7 is cultivated if he buys it for me. He’s not. Folks would also want me think that I am prostituting myself for candy, by implying that 7 is gonna get lucky tonight because he hooked me up. Y’all are stupid.

I love my man everyday of the year including leap year. He is a wonderful God who truly treats me and the cat like blood relatives. He doesn’t have to do anything but be himself, but he does things for me that make me feel happy and special. Like Buy Me Candy in a Heart Shaped Box. What the hell is wrong with that????

I think haters hate because they don’t understand the dynamics of functional relationships or just don’t have one. For that, I feel sorry for them. So what it’s a manufactured holiday… Aren’t they all? If you are too cheap to buy your woman a teddy bear and a $9 box of candy… you deserve to be alone.
