Slam Sundays: Proud to Be ME – Whatever That May or May Not Be

Source: http://www.funnyjunk.com

This slam poet will knock your socks off, and boy am I happy to introduce him to my slam series with such a bang! This Black History Month, I’ve been on a journey of discovery. Not just to either learn or to reacquaint myself with the history of black people within North American Society, but to explore in-depth the issues that a black North American faces in today’s world. In this process, which I have shared with you step-by-step, I have also gotten a chance to learn a great deal about the many, many opinions you guys have, and the variety of reasons behind those thoughts and opinions.

My general opinions on weight, body image, and self confidence haven’t changed, although some aspects of my size and my life have (dramatically) changed since the point in time that this was written. Either way, it’s a good look into the Classic Ruby mindframe at an earlier and different point in time. Enjoy! (more…)

It’s funny actually because I honestly did entirely forget I even owned a blog until somebody brought it to my attention today that they were waiting patiently for my next entry. So I’ve decided to endulge you all once again and give you one of my infamous mini rants. (more…)
