Due to being stalked by mother’s ex-husband, I have decided to move my blog to a different address which I will not disclose here.
All content will remain unaltered but no new posts will be added. I have a lot of memories here after almost three years. I view this as a space where I can express myself and let people know what I think whether they judge or not. I have viewed it as my space, my place in a great big crowded world and I really don’t appreciate having to move, as if I am being forced out, but…
I apologize to those who are following this but I make no apologies for making an attempt to ensure my own safety and well being.
If you are currently following, sincerely wish to continue to hear from me at my new blog address, you may contact me at ms.queenly at yahoo.com, OR post a comment, if you prefer.
Due to being stalked by my mother’s ex-husband, I am considering moving and privatizing/deleting this blog.
I know this will be an inconvenience not only to me but to everyone who follows my posts. I appreciate you but this is a choice I may have to make since this stalker is subscribed to my blog and stalking me and my family in every way he can. There is no way I can block my blog from his visitations. I don’t like feeling like I have to rearrange my life because of his behavior and harassment but I do not want this person in my life at all.
Should I decide to move and delete or move and privatize this blog, I will ask that you send me an e-mail and I will give you the new blog address if I see that you are currently subscribed.

To J. Sparks: You are a speck of dirt to me. Stop stalking me. Do not look for me on Facebook. Do not visit the city I live in. Do not continue to contact me through this blog. NO attention from you is welcomed.March 28, 2012
I don’t care who knows. I do not like you and do not want to contacted by you. You are a stalker. If you contact me again, I will report you to the police.
That is all.
Like that time they gave Three Six Mafia and Terence Howard awards for Hustle & Flow. (I’m still bitter because I was forced to watch this movie, so this will most likely always be my prime example.)
Or when they gave Hallie Berry that award for Monsters Ball.
Or when they gave Nikki Minaj a BET Award.
Or Denzel Washington for Training Day??? Or something like that.
Or when they awarded/nominated(??) Nelly for “Country Grammar”.
Or giving Adele, a white British woman, 6 Grammys for adopting a Black art form. (She’s got talent but I don’t know about no 6 Grammys.)
I feel like these “prestigious award-giving committees” that are televised every year are just a bunch of white people, sitting around laughing at Black people and making a mockery out of the most talented, well-known members of our communities and their careers.
The white-dominated industry decides what roles we get and in what movies. They have these images and ideas and impressions of what they think Black/African American life is like, what roles suit us–in their minds, it’s usually stereotyped, side characters, urban, abusive, and full of illegality. Because, of course, they think we should get Grammys for acting in and making music for a movie that glorifies going to jail, prostitution, abuse, exploitation and misogyny of [Black] women, violence, patriarchy, and drug trafficking.
They get to decide what we get awards for. It seems like it’s rare that Black folks get awards from these people that revolve around anything original or actually unique.
We don’t get awards for anything that they don’t intend us to get awards for.
This past summer in Fresno was pretty hot, even for someone like me. I come from a place of heat +++ humidity. It’s like a baking kind of heat here, like being in an oven. No me gusta.
