Facts About Author Terry McMillan's Who Asked You?

Unsolicited book review because you need to know who is running Black USA:
Terry McMillan's Who Asked You

Being a sexist womanist bohemian - my decades long self definition of a
heterosexual biological woman who enjoys a shirtless man or 3 and places the well-being of Black women first and thrives on creating nonconformist  outsider art = sexist womanist bohemian. My life my rules my definitions. Enough about me and my arts and broadcast crafts featuring my multi year social media experiment about Black women interracially dating aka swirling - last night I got absorbed in a book and had to finish it. Without any spoilers Miss McMilllan captures the heart of the soul of BUSA which is the women particularly the grandmothers are the glue that holds the family together. 

Let me know what you think after you read it.

The awful truth? Your San Francisco gentrification problem isn't MY problem!

Written by Dee Dee Russell San Francisco, California

Greetings! In case you're wondering I've had this blog since 2007 and there are hundreds of post that I have hidden. Actually I think blogging is obsolete and will be pretty much over in 2016. There is so much social media out there and blogs are stagnate which is why I post very rarely here but mainly I do other things that I don't really advertise here. I may be ramping up in the days to come, who knows. All I know is White folks in San Francisco are acting up over this new round of gentrification, as though nobody ever got priced out of a housing market and its the end of the world that a musician or artist of some sort can't afford to live here when it was usually the case for Black people but 'they' didn't care. No tissues, dear cause I ain't you mammy. Notice my complete and utter lack of empathy about this topic? Why? One sided loyalty is for suckas Black people got priced out of San Francisco a long time ago and it was accepted as normal, which gentrification is in a free-market capitalist society.

Day after day more White people are getting outraged about the rent in San Francisco ...yawn. Where have they been? Rents have always been pricey. Oh? Not for them till now! ...On and on they are rallying gathering in upscale bars drinking expensive beer endlessly talking about their complaints while eating 4 dollar slices of toast ...to me this is a living Mad Magazine parody.  These same whiners buy 7 glasses of beer smoke 50 dollar tiny bags of medicinal marijuana ...clad in 80 dollar hoodies and spending 3 thousand dollars to go to Burning Man (ticket, time off work transportation lodging supplies and endless fuzzy vests with match stovepipe hats) yet can't afford to pay their astronomical rent? Where is my tissue?

Yours truly, a S.F. resident since the 1980's has seen rent prices skyrocket pushing out Black families. Then Hispanic families. Then artists! Now middle aged middle class WP are getting the boot ...next wave of gentrification?  THE ROBOTS! Reciprocity is a Mother. I care for those who care about me thus I anticipate THE ROBOTS cause the techies are not glam at all ...at least THE ROBOTS will bring a shimmery metallic fashion sensiblity to S.F. cause the oatmeal tinted techies and their faded mud colored clothes are a drag ...wave to me from your Oakland loft!

Missing ol' elitist Herb Caen ...the three dot king of San Francisco journalism he has not been replaced so let's give it a whirl shall we?

Whew. No apologies Dahling, I'm listening to Nirvana cause the weather is Global Warming good.

Downtown San Francisco is like a Grimm's fairy tale for hypocritical liberals ...beauty, architecture, Class A shopping district ...views thrill or kill ...camped out on each major corner except Union Square Park cause the undercover homies don't play that ...are rusty dusty Black men begging.

Yes I'm politically incorrect and as a Black woman in the perfect position to expose Black dirty laundry, San Francisco's hard to rinse stain problem  ...ya see, Cali Phonies love to coddle 'the less fortunate'  ...but not in their own backyard Dahlings.

Da City has a bottomless pocketbook its said they've spent 17hundredbillion on the homeless problem still it festers on like a raisin in the sun with a nappy beard and a paper cup!

Black men are 50% of the homeless beggars on the street and only 4% of the population that's right  ... I'm tired of being embarrassed by and verbally abused by them. ... two nights ago one pretended to hit me in the face ... yes I was with a friend ...and yes I have a friend in my purse!

Don't make me use the taser on you you, Bro!!

Speaking of Brothers ...gentrification now has a White face on it, sob ...actually I'm not crying cause one sided loyalty is for suckas ...isn't it a shame they're getting the 'people of color' San Francisco treatment? ...wow your rent got tripled? Didn't that happen to Blacks in the Fillmore in the 1980's?

Gee whiz White middle aged middle class musicians can't afford to live here in 2014? ...get out the smelling salts for yourself cause I'm quite apathetic.

Most live music in San Francisco sucks there I said it ...doormen with Nazi attitudes, resentful bartenders ...live blues is the way to go.

I say support Cafe Internationals Open Mike Night on Friday 508 Haight Street at Fillmore Street ...Zahra Saleh has been running the Cafe since 1992 tell her I said hello! 

Also recommend  Swig's Blues Jam on Sunday both places have good staff & zero attitude.

69 for six

Chris Frantz
Drummer of the Talking Heads and Tom Tom Hunt not only is my Facebook friend he has the class to actually speak to people promptly and politely. And friended my brother cause I asked him to! Oh and he allowed an off the cuff interview for  Happy Dark Girls and gave a quote to use for Huntington Post. The beat of The Talking Heads was a bridge between my Motown music upbringing to punk-funky new wave of Devo, B'52's, Blondie, Rick James, Kate Bush, Human, League and Gary Numan what about Duran Duran honey hush, Depeche Mode.

RECIPROCITY! So when he asked us to poster his flyer I was happy to oblige.
