Antonio Cromartie Should Probably Smoke a Little Less Weed

Antionio Cromartie, father of 12 and counting, has recently been interviewed about the state of the NFL pot ban, “”We’re just going to do it anyway,” Cromartie told interviewer Ashlee Ray on Thisis50.com, an entertainment website. “They just need to let it go. They need to go ahead and say, ‘Y’all go ahead, smoke it, do what you need to do.'” ESPN

You’re probably still at the part where Cromartie has 12 kids. I wish I was kidding. The kicker is, they’re by eight different women. Glossing over the complete idiocy of risking your health with random women, there is also ongoing financial obligations that comes with a child. Let alone 12. I actually feel bad for the kids. Not the moms, they knew what they were getting into (baby mama 1, 2 & 3 you maybe get a pass), but these children will never have the close relationship I have with my father. There’s no way with a lot of them living all over the country.

What I don’t understand is why these women wanted to be baby mama #X. I mean BM #7 & 8, what exactly did you gain? I’m sure the money you’ve received rivals only a week’s pay at McDonald’s. So what’s the point? Why risk your health and your life for someone that plays for the Jets? This ain’t the Patriots by a long shot. Why have a child who will never know their father on any deep level? One can only guess.

And Mr. Cromartie, at what point is 5 kids enough? Or 7? Or 10? At what point do you think to yourself, hmmm I already have 6 more kids than I can afford, I better use a condom…?

It’s one of life’s great questions. Instead of asking his position on weed. I wanna know what goes through his head when he gets into bed with someone. Would make for a much more interesting story.

Madame CJ Walker is Rolling in Her Grave, Y’all

Lol… JK.
But seriously.

Let’s talk about job interviews, pretend you are interviewing for a job, and you wore a red suit the interview. And all the interviewer can think about is your suit. And you may be a great candidate but no one knows because your suit is doing all the talking. This is exactly how I feel about Fox Sportscaster Pam Oliver. Recently (before the Super Bowl), Ms. Oliver “spoke out” against nay-sayers. The video is after the jump.

 

Pam Oliver, your hair looked bad. Period. Inherently, this statement is not about race nor gender, I would say the same thing about Erin Andrews or anyone else. There have been many a time where I’ve talked about male sportscasters needing stylists. So how come Pam Oliver is above criticism? According to this huffpost article, it’s because she’s black.

I don’t know about you, but my entire life, the women in my family have told me that since I am black female I have to be twice as good. Everything must be on point. Not only am I good at my job, I look good too. And I’m not even on tv!

People today are way too comfortable being who they are, flaws and all instead of trying to be the best person they can be. Especially if their employers are lining up a younger woman to take their place.

Part of being a professional is looking good. It may not be fair, but that’s the way things are. Ms. Oliver seems to understand this, but between the NFC Championship and the Super Bowl, nothing changed. Another major football game, another bad wig. Being great at your job and caring about your appearance are not mutually exclusive. My grandma worked my three jobs and always managed to have her hair done.

Pam Oliver has been in journalism almost 20 years, and to be the only black female sportscaster during Super Bowl XLVIII is commendable. She is very well spoken and great at what she does. But that is where the compliments end. Pam, no one is policing your hair, or your right to wear your hair the way you want to. Just stop buying $10 wigs. It’s not complicated, racial conversations need not be had.
