1. If given the choice, where would you suggest meeting a group of six friends for a meal?
b. A trendy tapas bar, where wine flows in abundance, and the music is a mellow mix of Robin Thicke, Kem, and Maxwell.
SIP: I only REALLY like brunch restaurants when I'm traveling and yall know I'm a food snob.
2. Your younger cousin is applying to colleges. What type of school would you suggest?
c. Whichever place has the best program for her selected major, with the most attractive financial aid package or the most affordable tuition price tag.
SIP: I gots nothing. Go to the school that's the best for your field that you can best afford.
3. When “questionable” portrayals of blacks crop up in the media (as in the case of Shawty Lo’s now-defunct reality show), you respond in the following way:
c. Understand the offense your community takes to the portrayal as legitimate, but decide to sit most of these moral outrage movements out.
SIP: The other two answers were straight up no. My thoughts on the Shawty Lo show being cancelled?
Honestly...I don't care. I thought it was interesting to watch and read the hoopla surrounding it but honestly...I didn't and don't care. I felt like people whooping and hollering about this show were worried about the wrong ish. A show about a dude with 10 "baby mamas" being cancelled wasn't going to change the fact that dude has 10 "BABY MAMAS."
The show wasn't the problem...the EXISTENCE and the ACCEPTANCE of that ridiculousness BY HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS is the problem. The fact that he thought that ish was okay to continue doing is the problem. The fact that woman after woman after woman after woman after woman after woman (How many women is that?) had unprotected sans ropas with dude is the problem. The fact that none of these people were thinking about a FAMILY...is the problem.
The show? Well...I wouldn't have watched that ish anyway so nah...wasn't a damn problem to me.
Stop worrying about the wrong ish if you for real about wanting ish to change.
And seriously...yall know ish needs to change.
Thank you for reading my rant. If you know a Shawty Lo in the making...make sure that fool knows you do NOT think that ish is cute and there is a snip, snip cure for what obviously ails him. SO THERE.

6. On Thursdays at 10 pm, you:
