Rest In Power: Heavy D


Last night, I went to see "Tower Heist" and much to my delight Heavy D makes a cameo as a security guard. I instantly felt butterflies in my stomach as if I was 13 again watching the "Now That We Found Love" video for the first time. His performance on the BET awards had me jumping on the bed in my hotel room screaming every word. I apologize to the folks in the room below me but it was HEAVY VONDIDDLEE DIDDLEE DIDDLEE DEE!! For some reason, Heavy D always made me smile. He had an amazing energy & charm about him even without me ever having met him. 

Throughout the rest of the movie I thought, "Look how far Heavy D has come, from Hip Hop to movies grossing MILLIONS". It made me proud and honored to have spent many an allowance payment on his tapes... yes... cassette tapes. The songs, Sprite commercials, TV appearances, movies... *Sigh*

Dwight Arrington Myers, you were the best to do it. Thank you for the music, memories, and butterflies <3

Prosecuting The Victim

Today I had a conversation about the rape scene in “For Colored Girls” which led to a discussion about my experience with being attacked by a man. I was not raped but I was attacked. I have no problem talking about what happened or the fact that I took him back after the assault – that’s a different discussion- my issue is I became the person being questioned.
Why didn’t you hit him back?
Why didn’t you run?
Why didn’t you call the police?
Why didn’t you scream?
Why did you take him back?
And then they tell me what THEY would’ve done, when the truth is NO ONE knows what they would do until it happens.
For me, in that moment, I understood why women don’t fight back, scream, call the police, or do anything. When a person is filled with enough rage to attack you they become unstoppable! If you don’t have the same rage when fighting back you will certainly lose. In these cases, when attacked by someone you love, you wonder why and you become more concerned with consoling them than saving yourse…
