I have seen these posts and I will admit I always snickered a bit when reading them. I always thought “well I am glad they clarified why they are doing something they like to do…” I am such a hypocrite because I am about to write one myself. It has been a long time coming.

When I began HarsH ReaLiTy in January I stated that I was here to share my writing and to get feedback on my style. I was not lying at the time and that really is still my answer. I am not here to read and I do not log into WordPress with the purpose of browsing blogs. I log in to write and write and write. I have said before that there are many different people on WP for their own purposes, some are here to blog, others to read, some to browse, and others…

You are my sin I stir you with a thought as I savor each taste. I smoke you in a pipe and exhale you into the breeze. You flutter in the wind like a squall, I wave as we sail away into the palpable darkness. It hangs like a shroud trying to separate us from the fortunes to be found. I sip from a single glass that has tasted many different waters. They make small waves within my cup, different shades of amber, the miniature icebergs scream for help as they slowly melt and die. I swallow quickly to save a single life. Only one life is worth retaining an ounce of pain. I owe mankind that. And in his image do I spear the demon I behold before my eyes. He squirms like a pathetic worm as I flick him off with disdain from your spear.

I’m a Security Officer and I can remember back in 2006 I was doing a security check on the old plantation house around midnight or so.I checked the entire house up and down stairs and while I was getting ready to lock the entry door I heard a woman scream from up stairs,it made the hair stand up on the back of my neck,needless to say,I locked that door and got out of dodge.

NEW YORK (AP) — Google, Jay Z and crowdfunding site Kickstarter are among the winners of this year’s Webby Awards, a celebration of Internet achievement that got its start nearly two decades ago.

The awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a group of about 1,000 Web experts and Internet professionals. Judges included Tumblr founder David Karp and “House of Cards” actor Kevin Spacey.

Each Webby category is split in two: There’s an award from the academy and a “people’s voice” award for which anyone can cast an online vote. This year, about 500,000 people voted.

Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig won a lifetime achievement award. Lessig co-founded Creative Commons, which provides a way for people to license their online work for public use.

I think what this whole Donald Sterling thing did is to open the eyes of people who is always saying that racism is the thing of the past,oh no,just swept under the rug.Who has the answers,haven’t we had long enough to figure it out,it’s a dirty game being played out here in the world and the question is,does big corporations want racism to stop?

The NBA is planning a Tuesday news conference to discuss the investigation into embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who is alleged to have made racist comments in a taped conversation.

NBA spokesman Mike Bass said additional details will be announced, though it’s unclear when that may happen.

The news conference is a clear sign NBA Commissioner Adam Silver — in the first real crisis of his short tenure — is both following through on his plan to move quickly on this matter and adhering to a request from the players’ union for some sort of resolution in short order.

“He should not continue owning the clippers,” Lakers star Kobe Bryant wrote Monday on Twitter.

Fallout from the Sterling scandal continued Monday, with CarMax — the nation’s largest retailer of used vehicles — ending its sponsorship of the…

According to KeKe Wyatt, she’s misunderstood.

And that’s partly why she has problems getting along with ”R&B Divas: Atlanta” co-star Monifah Carter on the show.

Although she admitted there are many reasons that caused them to bump heads, her race might have something to do with it.

“Ain’t nothing I can do. I can’t change. I’m just going to be me,” KeKe told Sister 2 Sister. “That’s a lot of the reason me and Monifah have been clashing.”

Wyatt opened up about her communication problems and how conflict can be a result of it.

“It’s very frustrating,” she said. “Maybe I can work on my delivery on how I talk to people, things that I say, when I say stuff and when I shouldn’t say something.”

But she believes being a  biracial woman has something to do with it.

“There are so many people, especially women in particular, who…
