Humans are selfish

I know the title comes off as a blanket statement but humans are naturally selfish. What I mean is that the way the world is designed, if our needs as human are not getting met, by nature we look for a way to feel this void. Many of the outlets can include sex, drugs, socialism, companionship, committing crimes, murder and many of decisions that may not be in our best interest.

Don’t get me wrong I think it’s important to always consider your well being and to respect others. If you don’t look out for yourself while walking this earth who will? But I really want to touch on the topic of selfishness that tends to hurt others. Often times as humans we get caught up in what we lack that it’s easy to disregard what we do have. The term grass is greener on the other side is a great way for example. If a human is not getting its needs met in a situation that’s toxic to your well being such as emotionally, mentally, physically as far as health is concerned, these need to be considered and yes you must do what’s best for you and that other person to get out of a toxic unfulfilling situation. On the flip side there is a such thing as selfishness for the wrong unnatural man made reasons such as cheating, lusting, stealing, hurting others, manipulation to get what you want, harm to others to get ahead, mentally and emotionally terrorizing another person because of your own hurt and pain….the lost can go on. This is what I mean by people are naturally selfish and when this is not understood, it’s easy for someone to hurt others to get needs met. It’s a learned behavior and many times a way to feel a temporary void that unfortunately we may not always be able to come back from.

Are You Serious -Skin Bleaching?

Today I came across an article that really had me blown away.  Honestly before I get started….I asked myself, why am I shocked, when your dealing with a manipulator, they will do anything to secure the bag or get ahead.  I am talking about Blac Chyna….she is promoting a new skin bleaching cream called “Whitealicious.”  She is promoting it in Lagos, Africa….a place where there is an epidemic of colorsim and skin bleaching. You going to a country of majority dark skin people and promoting a skin bleaching cream as to say that dark skin is ugly, and I can make you pretty by using this skin cream. As an African american woman, you would think she would have enough decency to say “NO.” I refuse to sell this crap to my people. Its unhealthy and not safe. But the superficial chick she is…….

First skin bleaching is unsafe, and unhealthy.  It can cause all type of skin diseases and problems long term.  When your uneducated and superficial, you will over look these issues and continue to expose yourself to become unhealthy.  The fact that an African american woman, who I am pretty sure knows that this is a problem and not safe will promote a product in AFRICA of all countries is sick. Here is a picture of the advertisement below:

Skin bleaching from my research is a huge issue in places like Africa, Asia, China and islands of Jamaica. Places where there are people of color. They feel like “white” skin is more pretty and attractive and you get more attention.  Now don’t get this confused with “light skin.”  I am talking “white” skin. Example below:

Yall this is a hot mess! When you been brainwashed to believe that skin with melanin is not beautiful you will go to lengths to change it.  Whats crazy is that these things are unsafe.  The cause long term health issues such as :

  • skin turning dark or too light.
  • thinning of the skin.
  • visible blood vessels in the skin.
  • scarring.
  • kidney, liver or nerve damage.
  • abnormalities in a newborn baby (if used during pregnancy

I wanted to post this issue to see what your thoughts.  Thanks for reading!

What the Hell is wrong with this picture?

I really hate that we even need to have this as a topic of discussion but it goes to show how you can take a girl out the hood but you won’t take the hood out the girl. I’m sure y’all have read the blogs and saw the TMZ videos of this feud between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. I’m going to keep my synopsis short and sweet. There’s a time and place for everything and in my opinion when you reach a certain level in your career especially as a world entertainer, you learn to pick your battles. I understand Cardi B hold close to her motto, “I’m gonna be me whether someone likes it or not and I didn’t sign up to be a role model” basically I’m summarizing how she refers to herself in my opinion with that quote. What about the people around her, didn’t anyone in their right mind hollar at her and y’all her out of acting a plum fool??? Why not wait till you catch her in the street if you want to be ratchet but why at a high profile event? Is it that serious? Plus Cardi has shown to be a hipocrit, she cries when someone’s picking on her but Cardi is just as much a bully as Nicki. Yes I think Nicki throws shots and definitely gets under her skin but why not challenge each other with a rap battle, keep it on wax, what’s grown ass women fighting going to do? That’s my take on it, just didn’t make sense to act out. Now you messing with your own bag cause Nicki technically could use this against Cardi legally if she wanted to really be a bitch. Now that isn’t worth it.

Nicki had has her podcast Queen radio where she goes clean in on Cardi and honestly I don’t blame her. She should get clowned for looking a damn fool with her ass out. 😫😦😒

These Damn Cell Phones?!

Today on the train I had time to observe something I am sure we all have noticed in the past decade, PEOPLE ARE GLUED TO THEIR CELL PHONES. I was sitting no the train reading emails in MY PHONE, and as I glance over out the window to a passing train going the same way, I was able to peep in and see almost everyone on the train had their head down face first in their phone.  People either were scrolling through social media, listening to music, on the internet, and I am sure various other tasks.  Whats interesting is how we have become so accustom to always having our cell phones with us.  Its like we never once was able to exist with out them.  If you think back 30 years ago, there was no such thing as a cellular phone.  I believe they had just created the car phones which was the newest invention.  It amazes me how even I cant leave home without my cell phone.  Its literally my life line to my family, friends, bank account, email, photos etc.

HOW DID WE DEVELOP CELL PHONE DEPENDENCY?

From what I understand I think it comes down to convenience.  As humans, we will invest in whatever makes our lives easier.  We are easily smitten by the media and its newest inventions to make money.  Every 6 months they come out with a new device that seems to make our lives easier with even faster wi-fi connections.  Along with the newest cell phones, they even have watches that can notify you of missed texts and phone calls.  Is this even necessary?  Don’t get me wrong, I would be an anxious wreck if I didn’t have my cell phone, or to text my husband throughout the day, or have access to my bank account etc.  Its just crazy how we as human got to this place of dependency.  Its definitely a way for the government to keep money flowing in along with student loan debt, taxes, and other ways that humans contribute that are unseen.  If you ever want to see what I am saying, sit and pay attention to the folks around you, how many people are holding or on their cell phone.  Besides talking on the phone, or listening to music, pay attention to folks on the elevator, train, bus, patiently waiting etc. and you will see many people avoid awkward eye contact, conversation, because we have become so prone to being social on our cell phones and less social in person. Just something to observe if you haven’t already.  Thanks for Reading!
