My Shout Out

I love the Houston Rockets! Great job team! I watched game seven to the last second of playing time, always hoping that my team would pull off the upset of the season. The Lakers home court advantage and their double team efforts on Brooks, kept the Rockets at bay, but I commend the Team for a spectacular 7 game series. Go Rockets! No one likes fair weathered friends or fans; those that are only cheer and patt you on the back as long as you are winning. Like the saying goes, “that’s not how I roll”. While each member of my family slowly began to find other things to do, feeling that victory had slipped by for the Rocket’s for this season, I was determined to remain until the last second, cheering, shouting, screaming at the top of my lungs, and that I did.

I am fairly new to the venue of blogging. But as I embark on this new adventure, I am constantly impressed at the talent that accompanies me in this new world in cyberspace. As a black conservative, I thought that I would be a lone voice in this genre. I am however, particularly impressed with the black men who blog from the conservative prospective. These men present bold fresh coverage of the hot button topics of the day with very well thought out and detailed content. In the world of black female and male relationships, the practice of black females encouraging, exhorting or even acknowledging the positive contributions of black men is not a common practice. So today, I am going to take the opportunity to do just that. There are several wonderful blogs that I follow or visit on a regular basis and it would take an extensive blog to give kudos to all of them so these are just a few that I would encourage my readers to check out.

What’s the Word - Ron Bolling brings a very intellectual prospective on all things conservative. When visiting his blog, make sure you have your thinking hat on. Ron always provides a challenging prospective to ponder.

Another Black Conservative - - Clifton B. is a “no holds barred” kind of writer. He just tells it like it is. If you don’t have a lot of nerve, visiting this site will definitely provide you with some definite nerve power.

Wordsmith - - This young black conservative writes with extraordinary wisdom and intellect as well. He speaks with an independent and courageous prospective.

Black and Red - - J. Thomas Hunter provides a massive amount of informative content on issues of the day. Strictly Conservative, in depth and provocative this site also provides great content and intellectual dialogue to engage the inquiring mind.

The Black Sphere - – Kevin Johnson is an established blogger on the blogosphere. His site projects professional talent and invigorating content on varying topics of the day.

These intelligent, aspiring, professional and talented black men provide fresh prospective to the topics of the day. I am blessed to have the opportunity to share the blogosphere alongside these men. I believe that one of the greatest tragedies of the black community is the distrust of black women and the bitterness that exist within the heart of our black men because of this. Just in reading the blogs of these men, I find something more than men trying to get over, or provide meaningless pick up talk or whatever else is the usual stereotype. These men provide purpose and meaning to the conservative message in the world of blogging and they do a great job. May you all have great success in your endeavors and may you be richly blessed in whatever it is God has called you all to do. Keep up the great work.


  1. Thanks for those kind words.

  2. Not a problem, just giving honor where honor is due. Keep up the great work.

  3. Great post about the brothuhs!

    And by the way, I won't rub anything in about my Lakers defeating your Rockets. No, I won't do that at all. Won't even mention that your team looked like a deer caught in headlights as the Lakers opened up a can of...well, anyway. I won't talk about Bynum waking up out of sleep and Gasol going Espanol on Houston. And I definitely wouldn't say anything about Kobe doing what Kobe does. Nah, it would be pointless. So I'll just stay silent!

    LOL!!! You know that's how I roll, girl! LOL!

  4. Haha! You are hilarious Andrienne,

    What's the Laker's gotta do with me. I ain't trying to hear that. It's not over though. I will get to see the Laker's fried, died and laid to the side in about 2 weeks. It's worth the wait. I don't care who wins the next series so I am sidelined for a bit. But I'll be bach. Don't think I won't be watching the Denver Nugget's though. Two weeks - girl, don't be scerd.

  5. Yeah girl, but before you start trying to put my Lakers in the ground in a couple weeks, don't you have a funeral to attend NOW? I heard you were delivering the eulogy. You know what I'm talking about: the Rockets' season has been laid to rest. Isn't that one of the player's names? Ron At-rest or something? Oh, wait...that's Ron Artest! What was I thinking?

    Love ya, sistuh!

  6. Oooh girl, I am bout to flip my earrings off. You know what a quick death is much better than a slow one. I am one who believe in delayed gratification. The Rocket's are not dead, their just resting baby! And you know what? Just like a saint, they will rise up again. Hey! I can not wait until you come to visit me. I might even take you to church in their old stumping grounds. Have some laying on of hands. That's okay though. I got nothing but love for ya!

  7. Good hunting ladies. I watched you all today and this sort of thing gives me renewed hope for our kids future. This male is in your camp....Go Forth.

  8. Dear Conservativelikenoother: Saw ya on Beck. You were great! I'm a white mom but we are sisters with the same blood! Loved your comment about Christ changed thinking. I got a hot question for ya. There's so much criticism about white conservatives not liking President Obama because of color. I'm sorry but I do not like his policies and they have no color. They're just wrong. How can we make our points without being labeled a racist? Lion of Judah fan
