Just when / thought I’d seen the
last of that “money-hungry—let me
drive your car—spending my
money—take me to get my hair
fixed—you got' sta have some money
or I'm leaving you” ex-girlfriend of
mine, she comes running back to
Oh yeah, I forgot to tell y all.
You see, I used to date this bite...
girl. She was all right, but then she
got on that IRS tip and started milk
ing me for all of my revenue. Be
cause of this and a few other minor
altercations, I thought it would be
best if I broke up with this girl.
Anyway, I received a letter in
the mail from the old girl the other
day. As you can imagine, she was
beggin' to get me back, and all that.
She said she was gonna be in town
and thought she might drop by.
She ended the note saying she
hoped I had changed my views and
beliefs. Hmmm... I WONDER what
in the world she could be talking
HMMM ... Can Wonderboy Handle This
Opposition? Wondergirl Says, "NOT!"
Wasn't that so typical of Won
derboy? To my "ex”, I say attack
the message, not the messenger.
For the readers, allow me to truth
fully explain the situation.
Wonderboy and Wondergirl go
way back. You know, to the days
when relationships were solid, men
held jobs, men were faithful, men
told the truth... Oops, I guess I'm
pushing it. An'/way... we used to be
a team, but because he tried to
front, he got thow'd. Now, we're
opponents—kind of like good vs.
Anyway, I contacted him and
congratulated him on his column. I
also made a few suggestions of
things he should include. The truth
was one of them. That’s where I
I wonder what twist of fate
caused Wonderboy to think he could
get away with all that noise he’s
See y’all. I’ve been chillin’ back
at the crib waiting for the right time
to drop a little science (among other
things) on everyone who’s “chill”
The time is right.
So, ladies, especially, have no
fear—because guess what—Won
dergirl is here.
It perplexes me why my beauti
ful black brothers find the need to
disrespect us sisters so. And for all
of you u^ing to play like you don’t
know what I’m talking about, allow
me to explain.
Scenario: Any number of black
females walking by in ihc vicinity
of any number of black males. Just
for argument’s sake, let’s say that
thereare fivegirls; all light-skinned
with that Pert “wash and go” hair,
and dressed to a‘T”.
man, they are fine.
I sure would like to get a piece of
“Yo-yo-yo-yo what’s up baby?
Why don’ty’allcome on over here?”
Let’s say the girls have had a
bad day, and instead of jumping
into the arms of these intellectuals,
they just keep walking.
“Oh—so it’s like that? You
ain’t all that, #%&^*(a)!. I hate
you think you look good...”
Now let’s take a look at this.
Obviously, the girls must be “all
that”, or the fellas wouldn’t be
yelling over to them. Second,
maybe the girls don’t necessarily
think they look good (yeah
right...we’ll discuss that later), they
may just not want to be bothered by
someone who addresses them as
Scenario; Any numberofbrown

the vicinity of any number of black
males. Let’s say the females are of
various anatomical dimensions.

Too many times have I heard
brothers referring to sisters in this
“And boy—isshePHAT! Now
that’s something I could get in to.”
Suppose (heaven forbid) these
girls also keep walking; then, it’s a
“No you didn’t. I just know you
don’t think you look good. Don’t
be trying to dis’ nobody looking
like that #@S%&*#”
Where in the world do guys like
these gel off telling someone else
they don’t look good, when they
themselves look as though they have
been severely beaten down with
The Ugly Stick?
This is just a couple of the sce
narios I have in my collection to
offer you. But, I think you get the

b) try speaking correct English
c) quit being so judgmental
d) chill out
e) all of the above
1 think you know the answer.
And speaking of disresp
when did the words ‘bitch d
‘ho’ become acceptable terms for
referring to black women?
1 am not pleased with the fact
that a growing number of blai;'-
men think it’s OK to refer

as bitches or hoes. Most of ■ ■;
girls on this campus were not rai> .
to be either of the above, and 1, )

Collective Love For Stone
called semedo. This was the unique
idea or gi ft that God gave to each of
his children and this was not to be
tampered with but discovered,
recognized, and respected. Soul
three was called the Great Se or
Selido and was the values and
choices made by the person. For
example. Dr. Stone’s parents tell
that she decided to be a teacher
when she was a child. This was her
decision to develop her Soul Three
to be a teacher of Black Studies.
Fourth Soul called Fa, or God, comes
when Soul Three develops to such a
degree that the gifts (or teaching) is
from page 9
used to serve the group (race) rather
than just the personal life. Soul three
inspired by God is Fourth Soul.
The collective love for Professor
Stone is placed among our ancestors,
who we will always honor and who
also worked so deeply for their race.
Our gathering continues her
love. Our love continues. “In” love
we remain united to our beloved
African Fourth Soul Professor, Dr.
Sonja Haynes Slone as we thank
God for sending her to us.
