Subject: Dave & Busters in Marietta , Georgia

The 'struggle' has not ended!!! Read on. . .

Urban Soul of Atlanta, Georgia is no longer promoting Friday Happy Hour
at Dave & Busters in Marietta , Georgia because of the unlawful
practices and comments made by management against African Americans.

In four years, Urban Soul had generated over 10 million dollars in revenue
for Dave & Busters. After meeting with management and corporate officials
on Thursday, December 14, 2006, it's clear that African Americans are not treated the same
as whites.

One of the comments that management made was 'I think the Urban Soul
crowd should enter through the back doors, so our white customers won't
be disturbed.' Another comment made was, 'The Black crowd doesn't spend
any money.' Since they said African Americans don't spend any money and
we disturb their white customers, the only way we 'disturb' Dave &
Busters is to hurt them financially. Let's see if they miss that 10
million dollars African Americans have spent in the last four years.

Do not spend any more money at Dave & Busters. Take your birthday
parties, evenings out, after parties, and other events elsewhere. Call all
your friends and send this email to everyone you know.


You have to wonder, why would a business, whether it be white or black owned, say something
so stupid to ruin their revenue? Money is money, no matter who it comes from. If we actually take the time to boycott Dave & Busters for them to see the impact, it would be a small victory for the black and hispanic (I know the hispanic community is probably mentioned in this as well) communities, and a good lesson learned for ignorant racists' across the world. I just don't understand why we as a people try so hard to make successes out of our lives, then say and do such dumb acts to ruin it all.

I USED TO love going to Dave & Busters, but I hope they fail miserably, because of their stupidity. What do you think?

From the day we enter this crazy world, we are pressured and molded into "men" in society's eyes, and how does society see us.....as 'providers'.

Is that pressure warranted? Is it fair that we become the providers while the women are being trained and molded into housewives? I'm not saying that being a housewife is totally easy, but being out on the daily-grind M-F, 9-5 SUCKS! There are times that I'd rather sit back at home, cook a little, clean a little and watch my favorite stories, but nooooo. What do I HAVE TO do...get my lazy, good for nothing butt up, and go to work! It's our training that places us into these roles, and we really have no control over it.

When I first started to REALLY realize that I was destined to become a "man"/"provider" for the lady in my life, I was frustrated...plus I was in high school, so I really didn't have a grasp on how things really work. I thought it was totally unfair for us men to HAVE TO have the nice cars, nice clothes, money, and be cool and popular on top of all the others stuff mentioned. That was totally unfair to me, because the only thing you women HAD TO do for us was look cute, wear our favorite outfits, and hit us with the "Colgate Smile" every now-and-then;-) What did we do when y'all did that for us...we broke our necks trying to be that man for y'all, and it killed me! ;-(

Well, shortly after my little rude awakening, I had another thought. I thought to myself, if I'm going to HAVE TO get the nice car, good job and decent clothes, my lady is going to HAVE TO continue dressing cute, cooking for me, and continue to keep the house clean for me when I get home from my dreadful 9-5, and do other things to/for me that I will not mention here ;-)

I guess it's just the way we are taught from our society's old rules, and it's really ok, but sometimes, it's a little unfair. What's really unfair about it all is, I'm willing to bet that just about every woman that is reading this right now is totally not agreeing with me about having the nice car, good clothes and money, but how often do you see a beautiful woman with a broken down man...not very. On the other hand, a woman could be totally car-less, broke and living with her mom, and that would be ok with us...why...because we're the providers, and all we want to do is provide for you, and make you happy...but what about us????

Society's rules suck! I think I should try to find me a Sugar-Momma or something ;-) Just wanted to share some more of my Aimless Thoughts with y'all. What do you think?

Fascinated with Death and Destruction

Why are we so compelled to look at death and destruction more than happiness and construction? When we see an accident on the highway, we break our necks to see how bad the damage is, but if we're driving down that same highway, and they're building a new bank, or apartment building, we blow right by it as if it didn't exist.

What about events like Drag Racing and NASCAR? Ask any fan, and even though they may be reluctant to say, they'll eventually tell you that they watch in hopes of seeing a crash...or two. Why? Are we so dissatisfied with our own lives that we can't wait to see something bad happen to someone else to take our own pain away?

The other day, on my way home from work, I saw a MINOR (in all caps for a reason) motorcycle accident where the rider basically fell off his bike, skinned his knee, and was sitting on the curb talking with traffic officers. You would NOT believe the back up of traffic and rubber-neckers stopping, looking and HOPING to see some death or a ravaged body so they'd have a story to tell to some other miserable $%*&! I was in traffic for an effin' hour!!! I don't see the big thrill of seeing someone get hurt, but that's just me. I'd rather get my butt home so I don't have to be on the streets fighting traffic....caused by bored, miserable, unhappy with their own lives rubber-neckers.

I say, get a life!!!....but that's just me ;-)

Marco Tempest - PhoneCam Magic #8 - Proximity

It's it cool how little magic tricks bring out the kid in you? This guy is pretty slick with his slide-of-hand, but I love it anyway. It's the whole mystery of making something so obviously fake, look as real as you and me ;-)

Gotta Love it!
