February 17th

Who's the black private dick that's a sex machine to all the chicks? SHAFT You're daaaamn right. For reals, he would risk his neck for his brother man and that makes him ok in my book. " There is no justice, just us". You're daaaaamn right.

February 16th

Paul Mooney absolutely stole my heart on the Chappelle's show with this simple line, "everybody wanna be a nigga, but nobody wanna be a nigga". Amen sir! I'm tired of white people wanting to be black. They will never know what it's like to be one of of you.

Oh man oh man. The first time I heard this man sing he became my favorite singer. Everyone says Barry White has the panty dropping effect on the ladies but if you ask me Al Green probably drops waaaay more panties.

February 14th

I saved Valentine's for this guy, Dwayne-wayne! It's the shades man!

"Get up offa that thing and dance till you feel better."
Yes sir, James Brown certainly gave us some words to live by. I could watch this guy dance for hours on end. Just look at this guy!

February 11th

Today's man of the day is especially close to my heart. Herbie Hancock! My friend Mandie and I used to play his song "rockit" repeatedly on a very high volume in an art studio adjacent to the freshmen art class. He became somewhat of a hero to us. I have also been known to claim that this black man is my uncle on several occasions. Since the video to "rockit" was so out there I thought it only appropriate to use this picture.

February 9th

Don't tow my car muther fucker cause I'm close to the edge! At first I thought that I couldn't let this month pass by without recognizing Grandmaster Flash and then I realized that there was no way I could recognize him and NOT the Furious Five. Look at these mother fuckers. They are amazing!

Dear God,
Thank you for Don Cornelius! Without him we would have never been given the gift of Soul Train. I mean, then what would black people do at family functions?

February 6th

I'm not certain if I prefer Carlton Banks or Alfonso Ribeiro either way they are both in the top 5 whitest names alive. I devoted a good chunk of the 90's watching this show and boy it shows. I now have dance moves that put anyone to shame.

It should come as no surprise that JJ Walker would make the list. Anyone that can make the word dynomite even cooler than it already is is O.K. by me. Have you even seen a more charming face?

February 4th

It's clear that all the talent in this twosome laid in the hands of DJ Jazzy Jeff. Just look at that fade. It's no wonder he had to drop Will Smith, he was seriously cramping his style.

February 3rd

Shock G/ Humpty Hump, yell either one on the streets and he will turn to look. I would honestly like to know at what point of his life he decided that one stage name just was not going to cut it. I understand he had a pretty successful song by the same name but that doesn't mean he needs to call himself by the title. I mean, I made a pretty bitchin sandwich the other day but you don't see me introducing myself as the bacon-turkey-bravonator.
I will say this for the guy, he's the only man alive that makes me wish it was winter all year round. Oh wait, with him it doesn't have to be! Fur is in every season.

February 2nd

Today is not dedicated to Redd Foxx or Fred Sanford but rather Lamont Sanford or more commonly, the "Son" from 'Sanford and Son'. I chose to use a picture of both Lamont and Fred because I would be willing to bet money that no one could pick the guy out of a police line up without his pops. The main reason he made my list, the sweet stache.

February 1st

I think I'm going to start the month off celebrating Sergeant Roger Murtaugh! As demonstrated in this picture, he's too old for this shit! I think he is even in the middle of saying that exact line here.

Black History Month!

Well It's my favorite time of year, Black History Month. I thought long and hard about how to celebrate this year and I have decided that I will dedicate each day of February to one of my favorite black entertainers. I have chosen not to use any actual historical heroes such as Martin Luther King Jr. or Nelson Mandela because let's face it, that would not be so fun. I also will not be referring to many of the people I choose by their actual names but by their character's names, stage names, etc. Let's not be naive people, they aren't famous because they played themselves in a sitcom. I have been called many things, and one of them a racist. I assure you I am not trying to offend anyone, it will most likely happen regardless.
