Hey Guys I am so excited about my upcoming book, Professor Locs: Class is in Session. This has been a dream and exciting initiative that I have thought about for years but finally have recently committed to the process.
I have decided to self-publish through Leanpub so I am still working out the particulars with this online application.
[She] always peed with the door open. I remember saying, 'You know, now I have friends over! You can't do that anymore! It's gotta stop! My friends' parents don't do it! Give me a break here! I don't feel like being embarrassed!
I am getting a visual and I think I just threw up a little in my mouth...lol.
Lemon becomes part of a small club of openly gay anchors. This is really a bold move on his part.
In the interview, Lemon said that he has never hidden his sexuality from his co-workers at CNN, but decided to take a more public step after he felt that he could not write an inspirational book without being open about who he is.
Truth be told he was never really hiding it from us either....how you doing Lemon.....smile!
Lemon also said that he was "scared," because he was talking about things that "people might shun me for." He said that he was particularly concerned about what the reaction in the black community would be.
You think? It is sad that still in the African-American community an educated, successful and prominent media figure would still fear being ostracized. We obviously still have work to do. What does this say for just normal folks who are not as prominent as Lemon?
If an established journalist is scared then what becomes of say a youth struggling with their identity and sexuality?
I have seen Lemon on CNN and I am glad he is out of the closet but it was pretty obvious to me that he was gay. Anyway score one for the team.....smile!
The other ugly part of RZA turned philosopher is the patronizing manner he is being handled with mainstream media.
am accustomed to rappers, slash models turned actors but we have to
draw the line somewhere. My best friend has a PhD in Philosophy. I
watched him study, research, write and defend his dissertation which
was a long and intense journey. We have to validate educational and
Next it will be
rapper turned Proctologist. Do you really want Lil Wayne behind you
sloshing syrup juice on your backside during a prostate exam? Wait,
given the fact that I was recently traumatized by my own big Nordic gay
doctor that may not be a bad alternative. See earlier “Man Exam”post.
I want Flava Flav as my dentist with all that gold in his mouth and
that damned clock hitting me in the face? But I must admit the thought
of Lil Kim as a school principal is kind of fierce. I can see her
stomping down the hallways in 6 inch Prada’s and fur yelling “You
better get to your homeroom bitches I’m the Queen Bee”.
