The Trayvon Martin Murder and the Community's Cry for Justice

The Trayvon Martin murder case has sparked nation wide media coverage. People across America are gathering by the thousands and donning hoodies in protest against the unjust killing of the Black teen.

On February.26, 2012, an unarmed teenager named Trayvon Martin was shot dead by a self proclaimed neighborhood watch leader named George Zimmerman. George Zimmerman followed and confronted the teen despite the police department operator clearly directing him not to do so. Zimmerman admits to shooting the teen and remains a free man today!

An online petition has circulated for the arrest of Trayvon's Killer. Over 2.2 million people have signed the online petition, making it the largest petition to be given by

This case has stirred up so many questions about race relations in America. Many people think that the teen's appearance might have contributed to his death. So can we say that a minority in a hoodie and jeans is automatically perceived to be a thug or a hoodlum? Meanwhile a Caucasian wearing the same might be a jogger or college student; in any sense they wouldn't be viewed as threatening. This mode of thinking  contributes to the huge problem of racism in America.

An individual's perception can be the difference between life and death to minority teens. Don't think so...ask Trayvon Martin.

Fox News Commentator Geraldo Rivera excited many with his inflammatory statements about the case. “If you dress like a hoodlum eventually some schmuck is going to take you at your word" says Rivera. “It hurts to be assailed – but anger doesn’t change reality – a minority kid in a hoodie in a hood not his own is a 911 call waiting to happen,” wrote Geraldo Rivera.

Honestly If I were walking down the street and someone in a hoodie were behind me I would be a bit cautious. I would probably turn around to get a glimpse of the person's face to see if I'm in any real  danger. But I think I would do the same with any male walking behind me, white,black or blue!

This case just sickens me...I am disgusted by it! It is amazing to me that despite all the evidence, charges are yet to be brought up against George Zimmerman. Phone records show that this man prejudged the teen and acted on extremely poor judgement. He disregarded clear direction from the police and followed the teen who he said looked "suspicious". George Zimmerman should be in jail! Zimmerman's freedom might be contributed to the fact that his Dad is a retired judge and out dated "stand your ground" laws are still in full effect.

Trayvon Martin was someone's child, who just went out for an ice tea and skittles. Trayvon never returned home, his life was taken from him because he wore a hoodie and looked suspicious. Trayvon Martin could very well be you or me. Listen to the 911 tapes and judge for yourself. Listen to Trayvon's last cries for help!!!

We the people of America want justice! Let's make some noise! 
Stand for something or fall for anything!

10 Bedroom Mood Breakers

In the passion of a love making moment, something could be said or done that can ruin the entire mood. Passionate moments between you and your lover can easily turn frustrating when a few inappropriate things are said or done. Here is a list of 10 bedroom mood breakers that can turn pillow talk into a get up and walk!

Insecurities and Distrust

Your partner gets side tracked by his or her own physical insecurities and wants to ask: "Am I too fat?", "Am I big enough?" or even the infamous "Do you find me attractive?"  

"Are you sleeping with someone else?" Partners may also take the time to ask if you are cheating or being unfaithful. Your partner's lack of trust or self confidence can indeed be a turn off in the bedroom.

Rating your Sexual Performance

Sometimes a partner may want to know how they are ranking in the performance area and blurt out things like: "Am I the best you ever had?" or even "Tell me you like it!" Putting pressure on your mate to say things that you want to hear is a huge turn off!! Trust me if you are doing whats right, you will know it.

Bedroom Blurted Blunders

Saying the wrong name, thinking of someone or something else, random and unusual requests and last but not least; trying something totally new can also put an end to a romantic encounter.

This is a small list of sure fire mood breakers that can prevent you and your partner from having a good time. It is important to let the passion flow freely and safely. Your partners sexual preferences or intimate desires should be discovered way before getting to the bedroom.

Have you heard any of these statements in the bedroom?? Or maybe you have something new to add to the list....

Is Chivalry Dead??

The act of Chivalry is usually associated with men; a traditional like behavior of courtesy and respect towards women.

When is the last time someone held the door for you? Or the last time a gentlemen raised up and offered his seat on the train or bus?? As time moves on theses gestures of kindness and respect from men towards women seem to be a dying tradition.

Is Chivalry truly Dead!!

Ladies, imagine if you were on a date and your date did not pull out the chair or hold the door for you...Would this behavior bother you at all??? Well personally, I would be a bit annoyed and turned off. Being a gentlemen shows that you were brought up to have manners and respect for others. A lack of respect or courtesy are sure fire signs of selfishness. Run now or suffer later in the relationship!
Where are all the gentlemen at??!!

Maybe I'm a little Old school...but when I see strong able bodied "men" that refuse to offer their seats to the elderly or disabled... it just gets my blood to boiling!! How could anyone with a concience not get up for a pregnant lady or a disabled person?!

I don't want to male bash in my blog or to seem pessimistic about the topic at hand...But I'm a lady who truly appreciates the courteous behavior of any gentlemen. Courtesy and Respect are human qualites that should never lessen with time. I guess if we (men and women) all paused for a second to think of others, the world would be a kinder place.

Whats you take on this topic??  Is Chivalry really Dead????
