WHY ASK WHY?

1. WHY IS IT, WITH THE WAR, THE LIES, UNEMPLOYMENT, AND WORLD DISCONTENT (JUST TO NAME A FEW) THAT PEOPLE ARE STILL WILLING TO VOTE FOR BUSH?

2. WHY IS IT THAT WE DON'T LEARN THE LESSONS WE ARE SUPPOSED TO LEARN FROM BAD RELATIONSHIPS THE FIRST TIME AND THEREFORE RE-LIVING THE SAME BULLSHIT, DIFFERENT LOVER,....OVER AND OVER AGAIN?

3. WHY IS THAT WE COULDN'T ALL BE BORN RICH, FIT, FUN AND FABULOUS?

4. WHAT'S UP WITH THE FASCINATION WITH PARIS HILTON? WHAT TALENT DOES SHE POSSESS? (AH DAM, THAT'S 2 QUESTIONS)

5. WHAT WAS SO BAD THAT PHYLISS HYMAN and DONNIE HATHAWAY FELT COMPELLED TO TAKE THEIR OWN LIVES?

6. ON VH-1'S SURREAL LIFE, WHY IS RYAN "THE ONLY NON-STARR" SUCH A BE-YACH TO FLAVA FLAV?

7. WHY DOES THE ARAB WORLD, WELL MOST OF THE WORLD "NOW" HATE AMERICANS, WHEN THEY SHOULD ALL JUST HATE BUSH?

8. WHY IS R.KELLY SHOWIN' HIS ASS LIKE THE CRAZY ARROGANT EGOMANIAC THAT HE IS AND SUING JAY-Z FOR $75MILLION DOLLARS? (LOVE THEIR MUSIC BUT MR.R NEEDS JESUS)

9. THE MINUTE THAT YOU ARE IN A RELATIONSHIP,... WHY IS IT THAT EVERYONE WANTS TO "HOLLA?"

10. WHY IS IT SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE (NOT BY ME) TO USE THE "N" WORD AS A TERM OF ENDEARMENT?

11. SINCE WHEN WAS POPPIN' OUT A CRAP LOAD OF KIDS, THE "NEW BLACK"?

12. WHY IS IT THAT SOME WOMEN ARE SO DESPARATE TO GET A MAN, THAT THEY SUPPRESS WHO THEY ARE, IGNORE THE REALITY, BECOME ALL PASSIVE AND SUBMISSIVE,...JUST TO BE MISTREATED ON A REGULAR?
("BUT I LOVE HE!" BULLSHIT! WHAT ABOUT "SELF"?)

13. WHY IS THAT THE FOODS THAT ARE "BAD FOR YOU" COST LESS AND TASTE BETTER THAT THE FOODS THAT ARE "GOOD FOR YOU?"

14. WHY IS THE GHETTO FABULOUS?

15. WHEN WAS IT EVER OK TO DECLARE YOURSELF TO BE OR THINK ITS OK TO BE ATTRACTED TO "A THUG?"

16. WHY DO PEOPLE DENY THEIR HERITAGE? (INSERT: "TIGER WOODS, YALL! TIGER WOODS!")

17. WHY IS IT THAT SOME PEOPLE DISS OPRAH? (HATERS!) SHE'S SMART, INSIGHTFUL, INSPIRATIONAL, POSITIVE AND HAS MORE MONEY THAN YOU. THIS MEANS, YOU COULD LEARN 'SOMETHING' FROM HER.

18. WHY IS IT THAT, IF YOU AREN'T MARRIED, YOU HAVE NO KIDS, YOU ARE NOT ON SOME GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AND WORK 2 JOBS,....YOU ARE PENALIZED AND GET JACKED BY THE GOVERNMENT?

19. WHY DID THE MUSIC INDUSTRY LOSE INTEGRITY AND GO COMMERCIAL? (OKAY, I KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT ONE,... "C.R.E.A.M.")

21. WHY DON'T WE ACKNOWLEDGE GOD THE WAY WE SHOULD?

22. WHY CAN'T COCKTAILS BE FAT FREE?

23. WHATEVER HAPPENED TO WANTING TO BE STYLISH, YET SOPHISTICATED? (LADIES-Diahann Carroll, Audrey Hepburn, Lena Horne, Doris Day,etc. GUYS- HELLO!DENZEL!)

24. I BET YOU KNOW AT LEAST 5 PEOPLE (WHO AREN'T THAT TALENTED) TRYING TO GET INTO THE MUSIC BUSINESS. WHY ARE THEY ALL TRYING TO BE RAPPERS OR PRODUCERS? (I AM SO SICK OF IT)

25.WHY ARE WE SO ADDICTED TO BLOGGING? (I TRY TO STAY AWAY, ...THEN COMES THE JONESING,...."IT KEEPS CALLIN' ME!")

26. WHY HAS COLIN POWELL MYSERIOUSLY DISSAPPEARED FROM THE BUSH POSSE?

27. WHY CAN'T I HAVE THAT DREAM THAT REVEALS THE WINNING LOTTERY NUMBERS?

28. IF JEHOVAHS WITNESS' BELIEVE THAT ONLY 144,000 WILL BE ADMITTED INTO GODS KINGDOM, WHY GO DOOR TO DOOR TO SPREAD THE WORD? WOULDN'T YOU BE AFRAID SOMEONE WOULD STEAL YOUR SEAT? I KNOW I WOULD.

29. WHY IS IT THAT COMEDIANS WERE FUNNIER WHEN THEY HAD NO FAME AND FORTUNE? (EDDIE, MARTIN, DAVE, CHRIS T., THE SO-CALLED KINGS, THE QUEENS,ETC) NOONE'S FUNNY ANYMORE,...OKAY EXCEPT CHRIS ROCK AND WHAT HAS HE DONE LATELY?

I wish I knew the answers to some of those questions, my sista. This world is a crazy place. Free Will is a helluva drug! Sigh. Makes you shake your head.

You raised some interesting questions. Thank you, by the way, for calling out R. Kelly. Being from Chicago, it's a rarity to find people who question his actions. #21, 1, 3, .....forget that - all of them are good. Some, you would think, wouldn't even need to be asked but hey. That's the society we live in.

Ok numbers 2,8,16,18,21,26 You ain't neva lied JAZZ!!! And the one I will attempt to answer:
14. WHY IS THE GHETTO FABULOUS?

The ghetto has become fabulous beause many of our people have dubbed it to be so. The clothes we buy, the jewelry we sport, the lies we tell ourselves. I read an essay a couple of years back and it talked about how Black America keeps our counterparts running to the bank with our money because of how much we spend on name brand pricey items.

The other aspect to this queston is: to many of our people the ghetto is fabulous. Sitting back chilling, smoking, and doing nothing day in and day out. I'm sorry but if I could sit home everyday..it would be truly fabulous. Lastly, our culture blended with the attitudes of self degradation and the loss of respect for ourselves have allowed the term "ghetto fabulous' to even exist.

So many questions...so few answers.

I don't know how anyone could not Flav.

I think that Jay-Z was stupid to even try to go on tour with R. Kelly, but this is just me.

I have tried to figure out the whole Paris thing myself. It just goes to show what making a home video sex tape will do for someone's publicity.

Stoney said...

Ok I feel strongly that I have found the answer to number #1, that is if you are up to some serious reading...

Dayrell said...

Nice questions Jazz. :)

Hope you don't mind me putting in my 2 cents for a sec:

Ok....

a) R. Kelly is a damn fool! *smh* I'm getting a refund on my tickets man...

b) Ryan hates Flav b/c he tells her the truth about herself. And, ya know, there as just some people out there who HATE to face reality.

c) Arrisa needs to sit her ass down somewhere. Literally. =/ (Wait a min, doesn't #24 apply to her?)

d) I love his game and all (no doubt) but, seriously, Tiger Wood ain't never seemed black, in my opinion.

e) Oprah is rich as HELL!! Need I say more?? (The sista makes $70,000/hour a day and while sleeping--I read) So, I'm pretty sure she could give a damn about who talks bad about her. (Shit, I know I wouldn't if I had her money)...

f) And, honestly, Colin Powell seems to be the only one of the Bush Admin w/ some real common sense, considering that he's not afraid to speak out against Bush if he disagrees w/ his veiws/decisions...

Jadakiss ain't got sh!t on you...And ARRISA! She gotta be playing...I'll keep you posted

Just Me said...

First of all, let me say HEY!! :) I'm back for a few. I know I've been M.I.A. Forgive me... Now for your blog...

#1...We can't all be democrats honey..sorry :)

#2...Because we think if it's a different lover, it'll be a different relationship. Most humans have a classic case of self-denial when it comes to admitting they have faults, whether it be about themselves or how they handle relationships.

#3...Then where would the diversity be? Where would be the drive within each one of us to be better than what we are? If we were all rich, fit, fun and fabulous, people would still find something to complain about. Go figure.

#4...I have no idea. When you figure it out, let me know.

#5...Okay...I know this is going to make me sound bad, but, who?

#6...Not everybody can love Flav.

#7...They may hate Americans because of Bush. He is our "leader" after all.

#8...Maybe because he's rich, fit, fun and fabulous? He has let it go to his head. But, like the Bible says, pride comes before a fall. Wait and see.

#9...LOL...that is so true. I think we set off different pheromones or something when we're taken. Alas, it happens with the fellas as well as with the ladies.

#10...Never really did like the "N" word. But, I think they may use it as a "term-of-endearment" because back in the day, the word was used by slave owners, racists, etc. (Still is by racists and stuff)...BUT, I think they use it now as to kinda have a power over the word and to show people that the racists can't use that word as a form of power over them anymore. Just a guess.

#11...I don't know...but please...those of you who contribute to this, please stop.

#12...Some women feel they have to have a man to "survive". I know that's appalling to you (and I), but it's true.

#13...I've noticed that too. So, I continue eating the foods that are "bad" for me, just not in as big of quantity as I used to.

#14...I agree with a previous comment on your blog. If I could sit around all day and not have anything to do or anything to worry about...Just sit chilling with people, cooking out, drinking, etc...Hell yeah...that would be fabulous.

#15...LOL. Sorry, honey...I LOVE the thugs. I know that goes against your sensitive breeding :) but I can't help it. I think it's because they don't care what people think. They are who they are and F*** what other people say.

#16...I don't understand that either. I would love to know more about my heritage. It's something you should be proud of no matter what it is.

#17...Oprah's okay. I don't LOVE her, but I don't dislike her either. I do love the fact that she's so giving and spiritual.

#18...I'm surprised you didn't answer that one yourself. But let me answer that question with a question...Who's running the government? :)

#19...You said it.

#20...Why is it that the majority of actors and actresses feel the need to go into the music industry? Or vice versa for that matter? (ex. Will Smith, Marky Mark, J-Lo, DMX, Nas, Snoop, Ice Cube, Bruce Willis, Hillary Duff...just to name a few)

#21...Why wasn't this question #1? It says in the Bible that God knows of everything we have need of. Food, clothing, housing, etc. It also states that if we put God first in our lives, He'll take care of everything else we have NEED of. Not wants people, needs. I could continue but I won't on here...maybe I'll do a blog on it. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

#22...LOL...because it's one of those things that are bad for us, that's why. :)

#23...Times have changed and so have the people. I would like to go back and live the time of Audrey myself however.

#24...To be honest, I only know of one person trying to get into the music industry. And yes, he's a rapper. He's with the group A.W.O.L. His name is Antonio. Hope he makes it, he's good. Sorry, I love rap so the sarcasm in this question was lost on me. Hee Hee. :)

#25...I think I have successfully pulled away from it. Look how long it's been since I've posted for pete's sake. I'll try and remedy that for ya though Jazzy. :)

#26...The democratic aliens have taken him hostage.

#27...Maybe you have and you don't remember it. Alot of people forget about their dreams upon waking up.

#28...LOL...I've never thought about that. But you and I have a common acquaintance who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness...perhaps we should ask her?

#29...They're trying too hard now to maintain their status, OR they know they have the fame so they know they don't have to try as hard to be funny.

#30...We will come together as a people one day.

Jazz said...

Mandy, you are STUPID and my "sensitive breeding" has forced me to BAN YOUR ASS FROM MY BLOG!!!

obifromsouthlondon said...

*swishhh!!!!!!!!* awww that familiar sound as jazz unsheaths the wu-tang sword. everybody on guard.

hmmmm always these questions. rhetorical?

ok #7 Hate Americans? It's part foreign policy, part pseudo-haters, all Bush. welcome to the next 4 years (listening to his speech as I type).

#8 R.K? He needs desert eagles in his life. never fooled me. once he gets cleared it will be back to those big booty videos instead of all this lovey dovey "in the name of love" thingy. he's a dirty ol' man. love his music.

#10 The 'N' word. ok I use it. habit from blasting to much hiphop over the years. I've considered it and am for the reclaim-the-word camp. wouldn't tolerate it from non-heads (read black only).

#14 cos only in the ghetto will you get your own sofa sold to you. trife life loves bling. ordo abchao.

Dayrell said...

LoL @ C.G Harris. :)

Good list, good list. Paris Hilton feeds our national obsession with the rich fun fit and fabulous, or something. We like people who are famous for absolutely no discernible reason. Or most people seem to. I cain't stand the heffa. Makes me nuts that all these advertising contracts are going to her when there are models starving in the world (haha). Also, I once read a story in which the protagonist, a former hooker named Cherry (Don't ask. I used to work for an academic pub that got lots of bad fiction submissions. Guess who had to read through them) was descibed as having a "carnal face." It was the only good line in the story, and such a perfect description for Paris. She looks like she has just been tumbled, all the time, and at least half the population finds that rather attractive, I hear...Besides, Anna nicole got to be scary, and we needed another blonde to mock.

Anyhoo, have a nice weekend watching you hex victims suffer!

#2roman says.sometimes we are just NOID, my ex-girl is now considered GARBAGE(i found out she was the fiancee of this guy fronm her home town, I gave her the boot!)The lady I'm dating now is GREAT! she's,beautiful,smart,sexy and I am so in love with her. so when you find that guy or girl that treats you with respect, honor him or her and let them know how you feel. I can answer the one about the wanna be rappers also,(stupidity)! and the numbers are even worse only 2percent of local/underground artist ever get deals. and ya know why? because they forget about edcation and when the time comes to meet eith the executives they don't have any business skills. the other questions i'll get back to you on, i have a paper to write.
