To Whom It May Concern: don’t call me tonight while my shows are on T.V. and I shouldn’t need to tell you that.  Jim Croce should come back from the dead long enough to do a remix with Justin Timberlake that say, “you don’t spit into the wind, you don’t pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger, don’t call dude during primetime on Thursday night and never during Jeopardy.”   That’s hot; they could mix in “Our Loves is in Jeopardy, baby.”

When I was a kid and T.V. had nine channels, Dean Martin’s show was the thing because he was Rat Pack cool and had those “Goldn-ggers.”  Yes, I thought his sidekick sweethearts were called that rather than they real name “Dean Martin’s Golddiggers” and my older brother (the world biggest a–) would laugh before telling me my error years later.  “When get big, I am going to get me some Goldn-ggers.”  And my mother said, “When you get big, you should hope you can afford some Golddiggers.”  To this day, I can’t afford any but they don’t know that.  Modern-day Golddiggers are slipping and I am generally around the Essence Magazine reading, Get-her-own-cheddar women anyway. 

It’s funny how folks in my community connect all the characters an actor has played together.  Today, I will be watching Ugly Betty with smoking hot Vanessa Williams and America Ferrera, who I admire for standing up for Hillary last year.  I will tape Survivor, which includes Taj from the singing group SWV—she was the tallest one.  When former NFL running back Eddie George came to see her on the show last week, he made a brother proud.  George married her when she was one of the most desired women in Black America but she has put on some pounds while he is still cut. 

A weak-minded dude would have traded her in for a Golddigger by now but he is still in love with her and over the last few months, I can see why; she is still lovely.  If she doesn’t win, that is okay because the skinny Jewish guy is more than worthy and why do Black people always cheer for the Black person.  I stopped that some time ago—okay it was last week during the Amazing Race when the sisters who balled at Louisville were eliminated because one of the them stopped at a portable toilet just before reaching the checked-in point—and she was wearing an Asian robe.  That wouldn’t have been Taj from Survivor; old girl would have just let it go since a million dollars was on the table.   I am telling you that the problem with school system is that America is not building kids like we were built—suck it up and go.  As much as 25% of the next generation is weak; like Taj singing “Weak” with SWV back in the day.

I will be taping CSI with my man Larry (correction) Lawrence Fishburne.  He was the guitar player who said, “No, Miss. Sofia” on the Color Purple just before Oprah’s character got in that situation with White folks.  That was nothing compare to the beat down Jennifer Hudson took in The Secret Life of Bees, a movie from a book written by a Sylvester Georgia native I must proudly say.  I first saw Fishburne in “Cornbread, Earl, and Me” after the local theater was integrated.  We still sat in the balcony because we wanted to be with folks who looked like us and not folks under court-order to watch a movie with us.  And, the American President is Black today.

Obama did not change the nation; he is just the next step in a long journey for all Americans.  I am also proud of the sister Shonda Rhimes who created and produced the biggest prize for Thursday night since the Cosby Show and Magnum P.I.  Grey’s Anatomy is brilliant T.V. because the traumas have drama and the cast is a collection of compelling characters.  The strength of the Chief is similar to President Palmer on 24—the first Black president.  Izzy Stephens will likely die tonight and that thing is going to put a lump in my throat like Dr. Mark Greene dying in Hawaii on E.R.

 Please don’t let Kate die on Lost because I wanted to see those freckles during the final season in 2010.  Did that White guy and his Black wife move into the jungle alone; that must be love.  They set a good example for old school folks like me but what about the Latina and White lady doctors’ love affair back on Grey’s Anatomy.

Okay, the conservative movement is right (get it right) on some level: Hollywood has a diversity and tolerance agenda.  But, many south Georgians want their kids to be “like-minded” or them.  I will admit to being a hypocrite because two dudes dating I don’t see but those cute lady doctors falling in love is kind of hot.  The question comes up when my friends and I are solving the world problems at a cookout and sipping box wine (Cart-a-nay): would you prefer your female college age cousin being with a good woman or a bad man. 

 I had better leave that thing alone because too much leftwing T.V. is turning me into tolerant southerner.  Is that an oxymoron?  Two things that should not happen: don’t call me tonight when my shows are on T.V. and don’t ever invite me to two dudes wedding.  Those cats can be happy but I don’t want to see it.    

Recently, I wrote a blog post about gay marriage and I did not go into details about the Black community being so very conservative and the GOP having no idea.  The other contributors of this blog were blowing up my phones during the last 30 minutes of the two hour season finale of Lost—they were planning their weekends at the GOP State Convention.  When you Republicans want to know what is the matter, don’t listen to each other; listen to moderates like me.
