I'M COMING OUT! I HAVE AN ADDICTION!
I love my addiction and I will NOT give it up.
My addiction is this, THIS RIGHT HERE.
Nights, every night and during the day, I go from site to site, link to frickin' link reading, bookmarking, subscribing, promoting, marketing; sponging information, images, website names, blog comments, making comments and generally allowing my ASS to SPREAD.
BUT, I am so informed now, so effin worldly, that I can barely stand myself (that's a lie).
This is my obsession and my burden to bear.
WELCOME, and become 'addicted' yourself!
Observe a Black Person/Friend in Captivity to Help You Decide 11/2008.
Hello! I am Adrienne Zurub, a middle (barely) income Black married woman living in Cleveland, Ohio. I have a husband who is white (well sorta, he's Palestinian) and two children.
My husband and I argue, like most people (particularly white people) over finances, and why he cannot put a roll of toilet paper on the roll, and who was supposed to pay the light bill...before the disconnection!
I got the idea for this after looking at the Sunday morning political pundits. They presented statistics on what kind of white people would vote for Obama; the ones who had a black friend(s) or who sought out diverse interactions in social settings with people of color. The pundits mentioned that white persons who had no interactions or good meaningful knowledge of people of color, meaning Black people, would not vote for Obama. While this may be true regardless of what I do, I feel it is my patriotic duty and of course my comedic calling to educate the public, the white public that is, who may not be privy to a 'good Black person.
I decided on the spare of the moment, to bravely (sh*t, no makeup!) put myself and my family on video, so that some white people can get a sense of a black person and black people who live in relative normality in a suburban setting.
I recorded the video quickly because the rational part of me, that damn Left Brain was about to say, "Are you Crazy, don't do that. You'll look ridiculous!?" (Shaddup!)
So, observe a Black person/family in 'captivity' (mortgage, too many bills, a tween-ager, a passive marriage bound by the need for two incomes, etc. and so forth...)
Hopefully, this video will be instructive. Mainly, it is entertainment. Enjoy.
(I have to go now and inform my family know that I am exposing them for the public good).
