"Whenever I use BLACK it relates to some history of Africans in that particular place. It’s the idea of the color BLACK as a metaphor, or as a representation of African-Americans. It’s the notion of BLACK- BLACKNESS - and all its other meanings in relation to the history of race..."

- Fred Wilson

"Most of my fortitude to continue doing the work comes from the moral outrage I feel about the injustices that Black people endure disproportionately daily."

- N. Abdul-Wakil

"In the end, what matters is not skin shade but pan-African consciousness. Loving your complexion, your nose, lips, hair length and texture, no matter what the politics or trends decide, and simply be. That's the problem with us (African folks). We're still learning how to love ourselves. So used to glorifying others and putting others first..."

e-Celebration of KWANZAA:
Good For You (ROD)
My Heart Just Wasn't In It This Year

e-Celebration of KWANZAA:
My Heart Just Wasn't In It This Year
by N. Abdul-Wakil

(A Guest Nubian Knight's Perspective)

Peace, Rod:

I see that you moved ahead with e-celebration of Kwanzaa via posts to your blog. Good for you. My heart just wasn't in it this year.

Perhaps, it's the cumulative effect of having lived in the ghetto of Bed-Stuy for over three and a half years. I feel good that my voice for progressive movement is heard by a handful of people online. However, I don't even have to leave my apartment to be aware that my activism only creates one small air bubble surfacing among the relentless tide of ignorance that is eroding the coasts of this nation in daily massive waves. No one hears the faint calls for social justice, black nationalism, or reminders of the lessons taught by our great, martyred leaders of the twentieth century. No one hears above the mobile phones plastered to their ears. No one hears through the black, blonde or "ghetto fabulous" loud pink, horsetail-hair helmets that two thirds of Black women don daily to compete for attention among the dwindling number of straight Black men temporarily on the streets between jail terms. No one wants to hear about how their use of the "N" word denigrates their racial self-esteem (and passes it along to their children). It's not as though this is racial self-hatred. This is a hip form of camaraderie. It must be. They see usage of this word affirmed by music videos and popular films. No one even gives a hoot about recycling (which is the law). Why should they? Hasn't it always been easier to just throw the empty liquor bottles and cans out the window? Surely, it's better to do this than to risk everyone in one's building noticing the overwhelming number of vodka bottles in the recycle can. By throwing trash out the windows it's easier to wallow in the denial that no one knows what building residents have drinking problems. Right?

Spirit of Black Men (SBM) 2010
12-Month Wall Calendar
My Black Male Calendar Collection (80+)

Chris! Mr. June Pin-up Model For SMB 2010

Aiiight Y'all, The latest calendar in my Black male calendar collection that I just got is Spirit of Black Men (SBM) 2010. SBM is published every year by a Black owned company called Shades of Color.

This is their About Us mission statement:

Shades of Color is a Black Owned business dedicated to bringing you the highest quality African American products available. The company was started in 1995 as a means of filling the void that existed within the calendar business. Our mission is to bring positive images of African Americans to homes and offices everywhere.

So, with this purchase it pretty much completes my collection of 2010 Black male calendars. Unless some other Black male calendar(s) pops up unexpectedly, I don't expect to get any more calendars until the 2011 Black male calendars start rolling out next August of 2010.

Coincidentally, the later part of the summer each year is when the calendar publishing industry begins shipping the succeeding year's new calenders.

For y'all following my calendar blog entries, I previously reviewed and showed pics to the Ebony Soul 2010 18-month calendar and the City Gym Boys 2010 16-month calendar which are some of the highest quality Black male calendars out there (as a total package). These calendars are published every year (Ebony Soul every year and a half because they do 18-month calendars). On average I would place SBM in third place behind the two aforementioned calendars, but standings can fluctuate from year to between them except Ebony Soul which remains exceptionally in 1st place in my opinion every time they launch their product.

My purchases usually average about these 3 calendars per year but can be much more as there are always independent calendar publishers who pop up out of no where with a nice calendar product. Because SBM can be inconsistent from year to year I don't always get it. But this year's calendar is stronger than average. Davide is the photographer who draws the assignment almost every year to photograph these bruthaz. Some years he doesn't do it.

So, SBM 2010 is a standard 12-month calendar. The page preceding January 2010 has the standard mini September, October, November and December 2009 that a lot of calendars "cheat" on. (See picture below.). I say "cheat" because some calendars like Ebony Soul give you September, October, November and December as 4 separate wall hanging pages which I LOVE, and shows a dedication to the customer and it separates oneself from the typical calendar pack.

Mini September, October, November and December 2009 "Cheat"
On One Page As Opposed To Each Month Having
It's Own
Wall Page Hanging (It's Typical On Most Calendars Though
Pictured Again Is The Model Chris

Below I took some pics of my favorite sexy brutha models to show y'all. Click the pics to enlarge them...

Dimitrius, Mr. January 2010

Derek, Mr. February 2010

Marshall, Mr. April 2010-
Definitely My Favorite Brutha In The Entire Calendar.

I LOVE The Way Those LIPS Of His Are Pursed.
What A Beautiful Brutha.

André, Mr. July 2010

Terrance, Mr. August 2010
Great Picture!
Davide (The Photographer)
Has a Too Familiar Pattern Of Having His Models
"Crouching" Over Too Much.
It Works For This Model Though.


Omatayo, Mr. November 2010
Hmmmm... He Definitly Gives Marshall (Mr. April)
A Run For The Money.
Definitely A Cutie And Has A Really Nice Name, Too.

So, overall I really like this year's Spirit of Black Calendar. I give this year's calendar 4 stars out of 5. Excellent!

PLEASE SUPPORT BLACK BUSINESSES! I had a Black owned business called Sister's Uptown Bookstore & Culture Center in Harlem, NYC (1942 Amsterdam Avenue, on the corner of 156th Street & Amsterdam; "C" train to 155th Street or #1 train to 157th Street; either train is a short 2 block walk) order the calendar for me. I think they still have a few in stock. You can call (212) 862-3680 and ask for either sistah Tracy or sistah Janifer and reference my name (ROD) and ask for the calendar. It retails for $14.95.

If you can't get to the bookstore or don't live in NYC then you can order it from another Black owned on-line business called CushCity.com (direct link to calendar web page) - I have ordered from them over the years and they are a reputable and reliable online Internet resource. So you can shop Black with confidence from them.

Shades of Color, the Black owned calendar publisher I mentioned before , (direct link to web page) has it as well.

Amazon.com's merchants also have it.

Happy eye candy!!

Verizon Wireless ETF (Early Termination Fee)
Policies Validate Why We Need the FCC

Verizon ETF Policies Validate Why We Need the FCC
By Tony Bradley
Suject: Cell Phones / VoIP
December 19, 2009 10:15 PM

In response to an FCC request, Verizon Wireless has clarified its early termination fee (ETF) policies and the rationale behind doubling the fee from $175 to $350 for "advanced devices" like the Motorola Droid. The explanation is audacious and validates just why we need an organization like the FCC to stand up for consumers.
People who read this also read:

While the established and commonly understood purpose of the ETF is to recover the cost of subsidizing the hardware, Verizon's response expands the scope of the ETF to include a variety of costs and services including the cost of advertising to attract new customers, the cost of providing customer support, the costs associated with upgrading and maintaining the wireless infrastructure, and more.

I'm sorry, but isn't that what customers pay for each month? Advertising, support, and network infrastructure are part of the costs of doing business. All those $50 a month service plans, and $30 a month data plans, and other associated nickel and diming fees--don't those already pay for advertising, support, and network infrastructure?

The Verizon response reminds me of the sort of double-dipping business model that the insurance industry is built on. You pay your auto insurance premiums so that your insurer will cover repairs and compensate you for losses and damage in the event something happens to your car. But, if anything ever happens to your car the insurer will also raise your premiums to offset the "costs incurred" by having to make good on their end of that bargain.

The same logic holds true with property insurance, health insurance, etc. The point is that the premiums being paid month after month are already supposed to pay for the protection. There isn't an additional cost incurred just because the insurer has to actually deliver on its promise.

The same is true with Verizon wireless service. I agree that Verizon, and other wireless carriers, have the right to recover the costs incurred from discounting and subsidizing the cost of the mobile handset, but I reject the notion that it can roll in all manner of other costs that it will continue to incur regardless of a customer terminating early.

There is a difference in the amount subsidized, and potential loss from early termination, between handsets. Rather than setting a blanket ETF, wireless carriers should define the ETF as whatever the difference is between the no-contract price and the subsidized two-year contract price, and prorate that cost over the 24 months of the contract.

Verizon's response is bold, if nothing else. I suppose on some level Verizon should be commended for having the gall to defend the excessive ETF at all. It basically amounts to veiled blackmail to make it cost prohibitive for customers to choose freely between the carriers.

The Verizon ETF policy and response to the FCC validates just why we need the FCC to increase its oversight of the wireless industry. Issues like net neutrality, device exclusivity, and excessive ETF's are critical for consumer fairness. Left unsupervised, there is no historic evidence to suggest that the wireless carriers will ever choose ethics over profit.

Hopefully the FCC will quickly dismiss Verizon's flawed logic and enforce some consumer fairness within the wireless contract ETFs.

Tom Joyner Morning Show
Talks About Homophobia in the Black Community

Hey Black Family,

I received this correspondence today in the form of an e-alert from my boy Jair in California.

Just wanted to share the information and the link below to listen to the 6-minute audio clip.

PLEASE NOTE that I had a little trouble getting it to play in my Mozilla Firefox (version 3.5.6) web browser and had to default to Internet Explorer to play it. Otherwise smooth sailing to play it.

Read and listen on...

We'd like to call your attention to a commentary from yesterday's (Tuesday, December 15th, 2009) Tom Joyner Morning Show, from regular TJMS commentator Jeff Johnson.

This brief clip includes commentary on the great lengths some factions went to in trying (unsuccessfully) to prevent Houston's election of an openly lesbian mayor, which leads Jeff Johnson to call out what he sees as a crisis caused by the African American community's unwillingness to be honest about its own homophobia. The clip is less than six minutes long, but in that time Jeff speaks an awful lot of truth to those that may not always want to hear it.

Everything Im Not Made Me Everything I Am For those that don't know his work, Jeff Johnson is a Washington, DC based journalist, activist and commentator. He is the author of Everything I'm Not Made Me Everything I Am: Discovering Your Personal BEST and is chief correspondent for talk show The Truth With Jeff Johnson.

This clip is an example of the type of dialogue we need - open and honest, and a call to action asking the Black community to "stop being afraid, and start being willing to understand." His willingness and courage in speaking truth to those who may not want to hear it is inspirational, energizing and deserving of our praise.

Ugandan Anti-homosexual Bill
The Black Men's Xchange-New York (BMX-NY)
e-Newsletter Editorial by John-Martin Green

Ugandan Anti-homosexual Bill
Editorial by John-Martin Green

In Uganda, legislation aimed at eradicating homosexuality is being considered by the government.

In her coverage of the story, MSNBC news analyst, Rachel Maddow has reported that a U.S. organization, "The Family" has conducted an anti-gay campaign in Uganda. Under the program, Ugandan President Museveni and lawmakers have been led to believe there is an "International Gay Agenda" at work in their country. In fact, as quiet as it's kept, there is. And, while we owe Maddow a profound debt of gratitude for her courageous coverage of this horrendous turn of events, I wonder that she doesn't realize that there is indeed such an agenda, and that she (inadvertently or otherwise) is a part of it.

Sylvia Tamale, a law professor at Makerere University in Uganda says it best: "Homosexuality or same-sex attractions have been part and parcel of African communities for time immemorial. But the terms 'homosexuality,' 'lesbian,' 'gay' - those are relatively new. And those are terms many Africans attracted to people of the same sex never use or never identify with."

Mind you, there is nothing sinister in the "International Gay Agenda." It is a natural extension of Gay Liberation, the homosexual self-determination movement started here in America. Part of the challenge for Africans is the gay liberation movement's advancement of gay identity, the cultural and political bearings of which are Eurocentric. Gay identity, as Professor Tamale reminds us, is not indigenous to Africa, but is a U.S. import. Even leftist NPR references the issue as one of "gay rights" in Uganda. While same-sex-attraction has been there from time immemorial, when did gay get into Uganda?

At the same time, and more importantly, there is an insidious International Anti-homosexual Agenda being advanced by reactionary American Evangelical Christians, including U.S. Senators and Congressmen with ties to Uganda (The Family) which has sparked this bill. It is in response to this neo-colonialist and potentially genocidal imperative that, as same gender loving African Americans, we are duty bound to reach out to our brethren and sisteren in Uganda in an effort to pull the wool from their eyes about their exploitation in this regard, and raise their consciousness about natural diversity among human kind.

The Black Men's Xchange-NY recognizes same gender loving experience as an intrinsic facet of everyday Black life and, as such, same gender loving people are deserving of the same respect and dignity as all other facets of human kind.

BIG ROD Working On An
Independent Film: SINGLE HILLS
A Film Shoot at SUNY College at Old Westbury,
Long Island (Monday, December 14th, 2009)

Monday, December 14th, 2009 was a really qool ass day!

Before I get to that and for contextual purposes, let me say that I have been working with Writer/Producer/Editor/Cinematographer/Director Joshua Bee Alafia for a little over a year now. We first met through a THPAC (Thelma Hill Performing Arts Center) dance performance in the summer of 2008. He was hired as a consulting videographer and I was shooting still photos as a photographer. We got introduced through my friend Alex Smith who is the Executive Chairman of THPAC. So, Josh (I call him "JB") and I traded business cards and not too long afterward I got a call from him about an independent film called Single Hills (written, produced and directed by Wilkie Cornelius, Jr.) that he was working on as the cinematographer (also called director of photography). He called because he wanted to know if I was available to work on the film as a sound technician/boom mic operator. Though my focus is more on cinematography (as a NYU film student) I thought this would be a great opportunity to learn another particular aspect of filmmaking. Too may times I have been to film festivals or seen some independent films where the sound suffers so much and is distracting from the narrative of the of film I'm watching. Sound sometimes suffer from resource and budgetary constraints, or it's simply overlooked in favor of pure visuals.

Shure M367 Six Channel Input Portable Microphone Mixer

So I went to JB's office suite in downtown Brooklyn and he gave me a crash course with the Seinhesser shotgun boom microphone (forgot the model number) he owns and a Shure M367 Six Channel Input Portable Microphone Mixer. It took about 15 minutes to pick up on the two pieces of equipment because I have a background in indoor broadcast studio work from my experience at BCAT (Brooklyn Cable Access Television) located in downtown Brooklyn, New York City. I served as technical director, robotics ("robo" or "robocop" we used to say for short) and camera-person on various shows (that I felt where progressive). So hooking up the mic to the mixer with the XLR cables was familiar to me.

So since the summer of 2008, JB has called me back time and again to work on Single Hills and his own independent film called Let's Stay Together which looks incredibly awesome with progressive dialog anf food for thought. I think folks will like this film when it's finished and released (probably sometime in 2010).

So, fast forward to this past Sunday where I was working with JB on his film Let's Stay Together in BedStuy, Brooklyn and Harlem, he asked me if I was available on Monday to work on SIngle Hills again (been 6 months to a year since I've worked on the film). I said "Yeah, sure". So the cast and crew (JB and I) drove in two vehicles to SUNY College at Old Westbury in Long Island to shoot some new scenes. The school, by the way, is the alma mater of writer/producer/director Wilkie Cornelius, Jr. so it was qool for him to return to his roots and do his film there.

Man! What an awesome day! First in reflection, it's great when you can work with a cast and crew where there's no attitudes or egos and everyone is putting their best effort forward for the film project. The staff/students at Old Westbury did everything to make us feel welcomed and helped us with everything that we needed.

Below are some pics that were taken by the the staff/students. I special shout out to my brutha Jeury Tavares who assisted us on the shoot and who I befriended. He was a real passionate workhorse and helped us in so many ways on the shoot and also forwarded the pictures to me which you can see below. I should be getting more pics from him soon and will update y'all as I get them...
