Although I was able to achieve and maintain near perfect grades in graduate school even after the advent of Twitter, I admit that I have become overly dependent on social networking. I call the people I follow on Twitter my friends and share some of the more intimate details of my life with them. I rarely make phone calls or check my voicemail messages because I assume people will just tweet me or facebook me.

See, black women are sensitive creatures. Dealing with the legacy of slavery, oppression, and racism will do that to you. Black women are used to being the mules of the world and having been so ordered, these women carry everyone. They carry families, friends, finances, failure, faith, you name it, a black woman has carried it. Black women are used to being the first one on the scene and the last one to leave the scene. However, even with the work ethic of the black woman, the recognition is also the least. Mules get no credit. Not a thank you for the hard work. No thanks for carrying Sir wherever he needed to go. Historically speaking, mules get no love, no appreciation, no decoration. The Bible makes it clear that mules are the last on the totem pole because the Bible makes a big deal about Jesus riding in on a donkey. I guess when the King of Kings utilizes the lowest of the low, it's something to be noted.
My blog is going to take a different direction... To become a voice I have to start talking so I'm going to start blogging on issues that are of import to me. Look out for a coming post about the state of black womanhood. The supposed scarcity of positive black male/black female relationships. I am compiling examples and preparing my viewpoint as we speak.
