  1. LMAO!!!

    DC you have officially been designated the Barbershop Narrator!!!

    “Next on the Barbershop Chronicles….” (too funny 🙂 )

  2. DC, this is NOW your official assignment!

    Lisa–do your thang girlie–we gotta entertain ourselves & keep this going until the “Diggy Diggy Doc” returns!

    Speaking of this “men cheating” thing, it’s wearing me out. Oprah had a whole show dedicated to it this past Wednesday and now Essence has a big ol’ feature in it[FOR THE UMPTEENTH TIME] this month. I only skimmed thru the article until I saw MLH’s infamous grin. 😀

  3. Glad I could add some lightheartedness to this tense-ass thread. Oh and yeah men cheat and so do women and while I understand Essence’s target audience I don’t think ethnicity has anything to do with whether or not a man/woman will cheat, it’s all about choices; you either chose to be faithful or you don’t.

  4. LMBAO @ DC, that was sooooo cute! i love your summary! 🙂

    Ms. Lisa,

    i think the lyrics to that song are beautiful. i especially like:

    “Oh the glory of God is man fully alive”

    this is exactly how i feel. thanx for the inspiration.

    I love the lyrics to that song. Thanks for sharing lisa!

    Lol! DC, very funny! I enjoyed reading that updated narrative!

    When I read WYLTK post to Tanya, I thought “Tanya is going to jump down her throat”. I’m sure Tanya’s response was a suprised to all of us. Good Job WYLTK and Tanya for encouraging dialog! We all have something that we need to work on and make better. Knowing what we need to make better is the first step on the right path.


  6. wouldn’t you like to know?,

    “Ms. Lisa, i think the lyrics to that song are beautiful. i especially like: “Oh the glory of God is man fully alive”

    Many of her songs inspire me, I like that line too! 🙂

    For me, it brings to mind Colossians 1:9-14 which states:

    “For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”

    Romans Chapter 8 springs to my mind also when I listen to this song and that line in particular. 🙂

    A few of her songs are on youtube if you ever visit that website.

  8. Love your web site Mark and I enjoy it when you are on the O’Reilly Factor.
    I was surprised that “Bold Fresh” was not on your reading list.

  9. Saw you on O’Reilly 7-22. You are incorrect. There are NOT 50 million uninsured Americans. 15 million of the number you quoted are ILLEGALS–not Americans. We should be under no obligation to provide health care to non-citizens.

    While I pride myself on being a black republican. I most say it inspiring to listen articulate the views of the left. can’t wait to see you again on the factor or maybe even RedEye….that would cool.

  11. Marc,

    You are an idiot. If it weren’t for the topic of race I don’t think you’d ever have anything to talk about. Why must everything be about race with you. It’s getting old. Everytime I see you on the O’Reilly Factor I already know that you’re just going to try to find someway to spin race into the issue. You are so caught up on race that you don’t even realize that you don’t have an argument. When Bill creates a perfect analogy by taking a situation and swapping Obama with Bush, you all of a sudden no longer think it’s racism. Either the situation is racist or it isn’t.

    It’s guys like you that give black people a bad reputation. I know your type. You are constantly looking for racism in everything and if it’s not there you just create it. I think many of you would be sad to see an end to racism. Ponder this one. If it weren’t for racism, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton wouldn’t have a job so they constantly stir it up so they can be in the spotlight. People that make a career out of racism make me sick. They bitch about it, yet use it for their personal gain.

    I’m not racist. Many people in America aren’t. Until people like you accept and realize this, racism won’t be going away anytime soon. But maybe that’s what you want. Maybe you enjoy being a career racist.

  12. Marc,

    I am a Christian, conservative Marine Corps veteran, about as right wing as a person can be. I have watched you several times on the Oreilly Factor. You and I disagree on almost every political issue. That said, I admire the fact that you seem to truly believe in the view you represent. You are civil and cordial in stating your opinion. I have noticed that you are consistent in your perspective and not afraid to disagree with liberals and conservatives alike. Even though you and I may never attend the same rally, I truly respect you and the way you present yourself. In my opinion, if there were more individuals with your qualities on both end of the political spectrum, the country would be a better place.

  13. Marc Lamont Hill is intellectually dis-honest. He is a racist, and a coward when it comes to speaking clearly about the subject of racism. Every time he speaks, his opinions, are biased, and beneath a person who supposedly holds the honor of a PHD. What is his PHD in? Hatred. Bigotry. Denial. Mr. Hill has no intentions of helping mankind along by actually solving problems of racism, that would be too hard. Instead, he uses inflammatory language, he refuses to answer simple questions, and actually causes the race relations to all but stop. He turns a blind eye when it comes to racism by blacks, but is quick to judge any white group, innocent, except in the eyes of a bigot like Marc. He isn’t worth the paper his degree is printed on, and is holding race relations back by his dishonesty. Mr. Hill is not afraid to invent things that have never happened. Case in point, on Bill O-Rielly, Mr. Hill said the Tea Party held signs that were racist. When asked if there was any proof, he said no, no proof exists, (the only time he ever told the truth) but just because they didn’t have the signs didn’t mean they didn’t want to. What? Are you insane? No judge in the world would believe you were anything but crazy, and your arguements come from a racist ideaology. So for Mr. Hill, racism from whites exists even if it isn’t there.
    The world doesn’t need sub-moronic deviates like Marc Lamont Hill any more than it needed Hitler.

  14. i will not even call you Mr,; you do not deserve this title after what I heard you say on national television about that wonderful and beautiful Governor Christie. Fat and all, I would rather vote for someone like him instead someone like yourself who is prejudiced (pre judges) against someone based on his weight. I am totally baffled at your dirty mouth and crude stereotyping Would you say that someone is too gay, or too black to be elected? You do not insult people that way. We love him for what he stands for and not for his weight believe it or not he is a very sexy man even if he smells like bacon.

  15. Your interview about incarceration was timely. The Fortune Society is sponsoring two workshops on April 4, 2011–voting rights and prisoners and April 7, 2011 about employment after incarceration (http://fortunesociety.org/2011/03/08/drcpp-announces-voter-education-and-registration-certificate-of-rehabilitation-clinics) . These are major issues that I think could be incorporated into our churches ministry. What I liked most about the interview is that youdidnot have people sitting around talking about theproblem but talked about solutions.
