The remnants of the night tend to linger in my clothes;
the scent of liquor won’t leave my vest,
nor will that girl’s perfume, who was trying her best
my favorite shirt still smells of cigarette smoke,
or the drunken breath of the older bloke
the unsynchronised beats of the music failed to entice me
no sweat seeped into my skirt, I didn’t set myself free
nor did I get lost in the ogling man’s eyes,
turning him down was his most unpleasant surprise
I didn’t come close to anyone’s lips,
that reeked of mistakes and unfortunate slips
I went home with a friend, who remained by my side
kissed him good night, let everything else slide
And the following morning, when only memories remain
I can wash out the proof of their existence, though to me, it’s all the same
Because at least I can make all these disappear,
while you, I cannot
you are always right here
in my mind, never to be forgot

I got to say, I must suck being a black woman sometimes. I am not a black woman myself, but I really do feel sympathy for them. Base from what pop culture has been trying to shove down our throat, you would this that this would be the age of black women. These days you don’t listen to much love that doesn’t talk about a girl’s big buts, and big breast. Sure America and huge breasts have always had a love affair, but big butts were only a thing for back folks. Having huge lips now is all the rage for female models nowadays. Does this mean black women are now consider the most desirable type of woman? Far from it actually, Black women are still considered to be the least desirable type of woman. This is actually because big buts, huge breast, thick lips amongst other features are only desired to be seen only when it’s on a caucasian woman. This is just something I have noticed recently when anyone of those models decide to have plastic surgery and lip injection people seem to think that is the sexiest thing they have ever seen. Meanwhile, black female models who had to those feature those entire time still are not considered to be a top model worthy. Actually scratch that out, it’s ANY women out there that are not of back with back woman features are considered to be hot. Like to every rule, there is always a backdoor or a way around it. The only you can cheat that rule is if you are of mixed races. This has proven to the universal truth, and it doesn’t matter which races that are a mix or even if you parents are good looking or not. There is a 99% chance that you will be considered to be extra hot/cute if you are of mixed races whether you are a guy or a girl. This is why you will always notice a not so shocking fat when I tell you that countries with a large population of mix race are considered to the hottest countries in the world. Let’s take Brazil for example; It’s a country where more than 40% of the population claimed to be mix races. Because of this fact Brazil is easily found in most “top ten countries with hottest people”. It’s pretty clear, mix people are ruling the world right now. The reason why is because mix people tend to be really light skin if not bother line white with a bunch of black features which like I said is what people really want. Yeah, it’s like I said, it sucks being a black woman because people say they want what you have but only when it’s on somebody other than you. It’s like being a millionaire and people still treats you as if you were not. I know this rant of mine sounds very shallow and some optimistic people can say that you all that matters is your personality and if black women are still considered unattractive it’s because they tend to have crappy personality. I going to stop you right there and tell you first that is racist and second looks does matter…a lot! It matters more than most people are willing to admit it. When you go for a job interview you NEED to look nice, there is no other way around it. It doesn’t matter how much you are qualified for that job no one will hire you if you show up with a messed up hair, ripped clothes, and smells horrible. Your personality can only get you so far in life unless your have a really outgoing, ‘in your face’ kind of personality. The same goes for looks, good looks can only get you so far unless you have an outrageously good looking body. The thing is that most people have a moderate level of both of those things. The truth is you need both of them to be successful in life, especially when it comes to relationships. The reason you chose who to date or not is because of their looks. you go talk to them to see their personality, but the looks are the first things you see and you judge people on it. A black woman never gets the chance to show what their personalities are because they are not “good looking enough”. Don’t even get me started on all of the negative stereotype black women have to live with. If you are black woman out there and you are reading this I want you to know to always be proud of who you are and to stop trying to be more like other ethnic women because when you do that you give in to the system and the cycle continued. Keep being real, natural and beautiful!
In honor of Germany’s great win yesterday I would love celebrate by going over the top five kind of Football fans there are out there. I know I have not Blog a lot and won’t be in some time because of school but don’t worry! I will try to post at least once a week okay? Now with out any more delays here are five types of Football (Soccer fans)!
#1. “The Clueless”
This is the easiest to spot because fan has no Idea what the heck is going. They have no idea how the game is played which team are playing or understand the importance of anything Football related! You will often catch them ask ridiculous questions like “how do you score? How long does the game last? they have like four quarters right?”. The reason this fan even bother to watch Football will always change. Some do it just to watch good looking players. Some to impress some they like. Some do it because all their other friends are doing it too and they don’t want to feel left out. This fans are okay as long as they don’t evolve to be the next number on this list…
#2. “The groupies” aka “The fake fans”
Oh come one! you knew this had to be on my list somewhere! They are exactly like the title say…FAKE! They are hard core fans until their team loses. For example there were a lost of people talking trash about Spain and Brazil during this world cup. The problem was a lot of them were fans before both of those team got raped badly. The worst part about a fake fan is they will tell you that they were never a real fan to begin with. When Brazil lost those fake fans were all on social media talking trash about it them when Germany won they all pretended they were Germany’s fan from the start! For any real fan those fan are found to be really annoying.
#3 “The perfect team/player’s fans”
This fans think their team club are players are perfect no matter what!!! no matter how many time they lose. At first you might think they are just die hard fans but you’ll eventfully notice that they are not. Those fans are what I sometime call “the deluded fans”. When their team does lose they will find what ever excuse their is in the book to make it seem like the game was not fair to their team or player. These fans will blame their lost on the referee or a player that was not here or say that the other team was playing too rough. A clear example would be when Brazil lost 7-1 to Germany in this semifinal. Some crazy fans actually had the guts to use the “If Neymar was here this would not have happen” excuse! I mean the guy doesn’t play defense how they hell was he going to help the team not get all those goals???!!! Anyways I am getting off topic here but you know it’s true! Those fans are also will kill you if you ever even dare trash talk about their team.
#4 “The Trash takers” AKA “The Haters”
The are exactly what you think they are. They feed on trash! Those are the fans that root for a team or a player they secretly think isn’t that good so to make themselves fell better that trash talk about other players and teams. Don’t get me wrong everyone trash talk once in a while but if you spend hours on the internet making memes or is constantly sharing and posting them on your social media…you are a trash talker. A classic example would be a Messi fan trash talking how “Gay” CR7. Or a CR7 fan talking about how “useless” Messi is with out Zavi or Iniesta passing to him. In order to know is a fan is a trash talker or not you simply have to mention how badly their team or player did in a game after just wait and the trash talking will being. You will find trash takers trash talking more then saying what accomplishment their player or team actually did.
#5. “The true fan”
Notice how I actually put this one in singular? Yes it’s because there isn’t such fans! Or if such fans does exist they are the only one of his or her kind. Obviously everyone claims that they are a “true” fan but the fact remains it’s not true! To be a true fan you would have to watch every second of game play of your team/player from his beginning to his end. You’re suppose to cry when they cry and celebrate when they win without being annoying or douche face to your friends who might support another team. This kind of fan might still exist but he/she is rare! At the end of the day if we are being honest we all have at some point done something wrong to our team/player or other fans.
So that’s it for this article! I hope you were able to enjoy this. I am a little of #4 and #3 to be honest. What kind of fan are you? What are the types of fans do you think I left out? Let me know in the comment section below!
I know there is a lot of people out there who are angry at Brazil’s win today. I get your pain bro but that doesn’t mean you should makeup lies! I am not going to make excuses Brazil wasn’t playing as good as they should have. And some may argue that the referee was awful but Brazil would have won anyways. The first goal was scored by Brazil against Brazil to prove just how sloppy they were playing! The second goal was arguably unfair due to bad referring but what about the other two goals? Can you honestly say it was pure luck? Angry fans seem to call “luck” whatever score the opposite team gives because it’s the cliché excuse. Croatia’s goal was actual luck it we are being honest here. Oscar’s goal was the best score of the games in my opinion. So let’s put it this way if the reef had not give the penalty Brazil would have won 2-1 anyways! And if we are applying luck not as mistakes in this Brazil technically won the game with a 2-0! Game. So let me ask you whatever scenario and argument you may have Brazil would have won anyways!!! Whether you say they got lucky, paid reefs, or played sloppy which arguably might have happen you can’t argue that a win is a win and at the end of the game that is all that matters! Stop crying or being mad and start acepting fatcs! Now I am just waiting for those people that said Brazil sucks when their teams lose so I can trash talk about them 😀
Well I don’t know about but being the world cup has always been my favorite event of the year whenever it came every four years. This year once again FIFA will stop at nothing to express their cooperate greed by taking the most amount of money and times they can from much as much as possible. I mean who doesn’t get excited when thirty-two country around the globe gets together every four and fight to call themselves “the best on the world”. I said football because it’s the right way to call so all you twats out there saying “uh here in America it’s called soccer” I say to suck it! No one cares how you call it! It was football before you stole it and gave it to some random sport that only you guys care about.
Anyways I am really excited for this one just like most people who watch it because it is finally being held in the country that has won it the most…BRAZIL! Or Brasil which by the way is both considered to be correct. The kickoff is going to be this Thursday at 4:00 pm standard eastern time. Brazil is playing Croatie (in French) or Croatia. I am a Brazil fan and has always been and it’s not just because they are arguably the best country (football wise) but because they made a huge part of my childhood. I learn to root for that country before I could ever write my own name! The reason why I think root for these guy is because my own country in them. I was happy when they won and sad when they lost. Trash talk about their rivals this team has been a big part of my life. I think I need to write an article on why I like Brazil because there is a lot to say. Anyways there is a lot of great teams this years as always. I only have one complain. Why the heck in group G so darn hard, well you know the one USA is on. I don’t really care about them but other teams like Portugal, Ghana might have to go home. That makes me sad when a team has such great potential have to go home. I am not worried about Germany because we all know they make it to the final or at least third round no matter what. I heard people talking about how hard group D is and some even call it the group of death. It’s pretty bad but it’s still not as bad as group G. Maybe I am saying this because I don’t care about any of team in there. My top five teams are Brazil (obviously), Germany, Ghana, Australia and the amazing Iran. My top five worst or hated team aren’t bad team they actually are pretty good but I hate them for personal reason so if like them then well you just don’t see the world like I do, France, Argentina, Mexico, Spain, USA. I will make two other post in the weeks to come to explain why I hate or love those ten teams.
In conclusions I feel like this world cup might be one to remember because some guys will go home too early while others who aren’t that great will stay. I think it’s great even when Brazil might not win. Heck I think it’s great even when that fact still remains: the only thing I think is making the hype around this world cup is mostly the fact it is being held in Brazil. So! For those who don’t really care about football or hate the fact the U.S. will inevitably go home early once again. I am telling you not to worry and just enjoy when your football friend talking about how angry they when their favorite team goes home too. That always seem to make me feel better. What I really want to know now is what your thoughts on Football are? What are your thought on the corporate greed of FIFA? Or the million dollar…Who do you think is going to Win?! Let me know in the comments bellow!
