Alright I told myself I wouldn't become one of those angry bloggers who do nothing but bitch and moan in every post. That shit annoys me but if that's your choice, knock yourself out. But sometimes, there are things that are sooooooo aggravating to me, I need to get it off my chest.
Yesterday morning while watching my local news program, one of the top stories was that our mayor passed out food baskets to needy families for the upcoming holiday. Why were there some sistas grinning in the camera with fresh QUICKWEAVES and ROCAWEAR JACKETS receiving free food???? If you can afford designer jackets and visits to the hair salon, you can afford to buy food! I know my salon charges $65 and up for that procedure and those Rocawear jackets cost over $100. Shit made me mad! They were smiling as if it were something to be proud of. Now don't get me wrong, everyone falls on hard times so I am in no way condemning anyone for seeking help. If my kids were hungry and I had no other resources, you better believe I'd stand in line for free food. I'll give the sistas the benefit of the doubt by saying "Maybe a friend did their hair". But even if that were the case, the money you spent on hair could have went towards food. There is no excuse for that. Those donations could have went to a family that was truly in need. Why would someone take advantage of that? I would feel so bad if I received something for free that I truly didn't need knowing that there are others who do need it. FATWA Weavy Wonders, it is written!
