Racist on the Bus

A female bus rider decided to take it upon herself to start a barrage of insults towards the bus driver whom we're assuming was African-American. She uses the word NIGGER repeatedly and is unrelenting until she gets off the vehicle. I mean, really dude, if you have such a problem with black folk, why ride the bus at all with a black driver.

What do you think about this racist outburst? We would love to hear from you.

Take The Skirt Off

On Facebook, I Mean Really Dude has a group where members are allowed to share articles, videos, questions and photos that lead to open conversations without judgment. It's becoming very popular and I couldn't be more proud.

I have asked members to promote the group by adding their friends and I have been doing the same. The problem with Facebook groups is instead of asking the permission of the individual, such as Facebook Pages does, it will just put a person into the group automatically.

Now, in my experience, if I don't want to be a part of a group I will just go to the group settings and delete myself. Usually this is in the cases of a group being full of nonsense or things completely opposite to what I believe. Other than that, I make no bones about it.

However, over the last two days men, and only men, have been sending me messages asking me to remove them from the group. A couple of them going as far as saying, "You have never said a word to me so why would you want me to be a part of your group."

Pick Up The Recycling

The last time I checked, recycling had become a mandatory part of trash pickup. At least in Philadelphia it is. We are supposed to separate our papers, cans and cardboard from the rest of the trash and place them in the blue bin that had been provided for all Philadelphia homes.

Well, I have run into a problem that has gone on long enough.

Getting Rid Of Bedbugs At Low Cost

Bedbugs are growing in population at an alarming rate. They are becoming more than the pests from the saying, "Sleep tight. Don't let the bedbugs bite." These bloodsuckers are effecting lives and homes across the country and costing people hundreds of dollars to get rid of them.

Nothing rubs me the wrong way than Hollywood's view of Black actors. While no one wants to believe that racism still exists, it's hard to believe when things like this happen.

West Philly Trending

This morning I had planned to indulge in a good book I've been wanting to read for a while and figured this was the perfect time to do so.

Before I could crack the book open, the neighbors behind me started with their loud music. Typical! Blocking it out, I continued, beginning to get into the story but then my phone alerts started going off.
