Are We Missing The Point?

I came across this picture a few weeks ago and posted it on my Tumblr
The other night I was going through all my comments and noticed that many people had 
a lot of negative things to say about the picture.

The main comment that I saw over and over was that instead of showing a White Latina,
the picture should have an Afro-Latina. 

Now look! I am the first person to always say everyone is entitled to their opinion so
I am going to let the comments on Tumblr live on and continue flourish.

You Should Be Listening To: Dubwork "Pinot Grigio"

Listen & Download ----> Pinot Grigio

Officially released today, Dubwork's "Pinot Grigio" is definitely a feel good song.
Dubwork sent me this track a few days ago and I have listened to it several time since.

 I really like it!

It Doesn't Hurt

I always get a kick out of the way people react when I say "Thank You." Especially when I finish a transaction at the store and the associate says "Have a nice day" (as they are required to) and I follow up with "Thank you, you too." I'm usually met with a look of shock. As in they either don't get that response very often or they weren't expecting it from me.

Do We Really Care?

Here's my rant:

Yes we all love Beyonce and Jay-Z but some people take it too far. I like their relationship because I feel they are a good example for the Black community. So often Black men (and women) don't know how or don't want to commit because they have never seen it done successfully. So I am all for their relationship.

But what I don't like is the fact that every move they make is talked about. Yes, Jay-Z is the best in Hip Hop and yes he continues to expand and grow by being a part of new ventures. Yes, Beyonce is a good performer and makes good music. But at some point people have got to stop talking about these two.

Rap Quotes

Jay Shells creates street signs with rap lyrics. 
It's this type of out of the box thinking and love for the culture that 
makes me so happy to be living in NYC.

Be Healthy: Avocado

Creamy and nutritious, avocados are loaded with healthy fat and nutrients to boost your health. 

1. Lower cholesterol. Avocados contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that lowers cholesterol. A study of people with high cholesterol showed that eating a diet high in avocados can decrease bad cholesterol levels while increasing good cholesterol levels.

2. Improve your vision. Avocados contain high amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants that protect your eyes from age-related macular degeneration and can actually improve your vision.
