Today’s Recipe: After getting stoned and sidetracked by Malcolm and 2pac our heroes “5ive” and “Bats”are finally back on topic. How did 5ive lose his girl?…Somehow it has something to do with a quasar, Mos Def, orgasms, Saul Williams, temper tantrums, the universe and weed getting thrown into The Pot…
Press play and enjoy!

DETAILS SHORT FILM:
Without giving the long introduction, this is Part II of a three part series I’m doing called ‘Much Ado About Relationships.’ I basically got inspired by seeing this woman’s status ragging on men and felt that folk aren’t seeing the bigger picture, or at least aren’t trying to understand each other. I’m not a woman, so I can’t provide the woman’s insight into women, but I can give a man’s POV on assorted topics in the genre that is MAN/WOMAN. Part I was “Men and Women Are Wired Differently”, you can check it out by clicking here. For this post, we’re going to explore…THE SINGLE MAN’S MIND
…yeah, it was going to be titled THE SINGLE MAN’S HEART….but that title was wack, on to it though…
THE SINGLE MAN’S MIND
Your average single man is having consistent sex with 1 main woman (sometimes 2 or 3, but definitely 1), while still leaving his penis open to the possibilities for random hookups, fantasy smashes and even future GFs. No matter what he’s telling you, he’s most likely smashing at least one chick
What IS single?
The often ignored Louisiana Slave Revolt of 1811 where slaves in the New Orleans area got tired of ‘Massa’s’ sh!t and decided to go Planter’s style nuts on anyone that got in their way. They marched from LaPlace, Louisiana to Kenner with nothing but glory on their minds and the phrase “FREEDOM OR DEATH” on their lips. Now, this post isn’t about that story specifically (That’s what the play is for, at the New Orleans African American Museum, October 13-30th! #promotionTHEsequel), but there’s one main thing that stood out (and one main disgust, that’ll I’ll get to later) to me in my research of the slavery topic. In our history lessons at school all we are normally taught is that Africans were made into slaves, beat down for decades, maybe a revolt or two happened then Uncle Abe freed us and all of us crayola skinned folk should rejoice and slurp the [andrew] Johnson of Abe and the Yankees for doing us this ‘favor.’
Now, of course as you move onto college and get a bit more educated on the matter you learn that Abe really had nothing to do with freeing the slaves, really it wasn’t even his intent, he was just caring about war and money. Hell, even in the “Emancipation Proclamation” there are areas of the country that were EXEMPT from freeing said slaves. Yes, in the actual document where we are normally taught, but never really read ourselves, that Abe ‘emancipated us’ it’s in writing that he really didn’t:
“That on the 1st day of January, A.D. 1863, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State that people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free….(blah blah blah)
….Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana (EXCEPT the parishes (counties) of St Bernard, Plaquemnines, Jefferson, St. John, St. Charles, St. James, Ascension, Assumption, Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin, and Orleans including the city of New Orleans), Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia (except for the forty-eight counties designated as West Virginia, and also the counties of Berkely, Accomac, Northhampton, Elizabeth City, York, Princess Anne, and Norfolk, including the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth), and which EXCEPTED parts are for the present LEFT PRECISELY AS IF THIS PROCLAMATION WERE NOT ISSUED” — The Emancipation Proclamation
Now, I don’t think it takes the smartest man on earth to see that this cat basically freed no southern slaves and seeing as slavery was the biggest and most profitable IN THE SOUTH, why would he really want to elect to slow his money up like that?
If you read the whole document, you’ll see that Abe gave the southern spots a hundred days to keep their slaves on record and then off record basically sat back while the whole southern hemisphere committed all kinds of atrocities to blacks, the biggest, of course, was not really freeing them. So yeah, add that with the fact that before the ‘Proclamation’, the government would actually pay slave owners money if they had to kill a slave for revolting, yes, just as if blacks were devices with warranties on them the government would PAY for a replacement if the slave master had to kill a “nigger” for being disobedient, toss this all into the gumbo pot and my proclamation is that the whole Emancipation Proclamation was full of “Ze Sheeit From Ze Bull.”
‘Honest’ Abe my black a$$, I don’t care if you’re Obama’s homie, honesty is the antonym to politics….
