Dale C. Slavin’s “Joie de Vie,” a limestone sculpture on a granite base, looks like a single woman chilling with her children in Beachwood near The Land in Ohio.
My new doctor is Indian. During a recent first visit, he asked if I had children. When I told this graham-cracker colored man no, the look on his face revealed he rarely met Black women over twenty who were virgins to giving birth. Then he went and asked me that other question, the question that comes first—I presume—if you are any other attractive single woman. Why aren’t you married?
The slightest glimpse of Sylvester Stallone’s silhouette is distinguishable around the globe. With his mopey downcast eyes and angst-rippled lips, his is a face brooding with clouds and shadows that, at a glance, is symbolic of bad news, a hard-knock life, or the drain of loss.
"You know who it is. You see these bees."
Oops! She done done it again. Beyonce woke up like this. Makeup-free. Under a crown of white roses (lookin’ mighty yella to me). Damn, that’s special. But it’s nothing compared to waking up on a bed of cool green grass. You know . . . when you trip . . . cause you’re kinda drunk . . . off the tall glasses of Ginn the bartender kept pouring you . . . for free . . . cause you cute . . . and you wake up wet with dew (or urine) . . . on not your lawn . . . but somebody’s lawn, also known as a bed of grass?

Some Christians need a second or third baptism, a second or third dunkin’ in the water, because some of them need to be born again—again and again. Nothing was more disappointing to hear than that Tyler Perry announced at his 45th birthday party that he was going to be a father. A father! A father! Not an engaged man! Or a husband! A father!
Is this offensive?
The time has come to axe the sports team monikers that Native Americans find so offensive. It’s long overdue. Slavery, a horrific tradition, lasted hundreds of years too many. Men-only voting spanned the decades. To this country’s shame, marriage is scarcely defined as a union between a man and woman. So, sadly, most traditions, right or hell-fire wrong, as is tradition, come to an end.
It seems the time is tick-tock-tomahawking on The Washington Redskins. The Cleveland Indians. Sorry Chief Wahoo. And other sports franchises as well.
