7 Reasons Why

The 7 Reasons Why Black People Always Die First In Scary Movies


I believe that we have all watched our fair share of scary movies.

We’ve all seen the opening of a movie, with a woman in the shower. She hears a noise and says, “hello?” And the audience sighs because she gave her location away to the killer. Now imagine a black woman in the shower. She will have her shower cap on and will hear ALL. If she understands anything, it won’t be a hello. It’ll be a goodbye, she will either fight or flight.


Imagine your top ten picks and then try to recall the black character in each those films. Did they die off first? Were they killed towards the beginning or middle of the movie? Yeah, let me clue you in as to why.




We do not play by any of the rules: 
You know those typical ghost stories? Where there is running water, or the doors are slammed or closed behind you while you're brushing your teeth? Yeah, WE don't play that. We would confront it.

Push Down insecurities

One of the many perks of being a woman is our bodies. Don't you just love doing physical activities and realizing you aren't wearing the correct bra?

I go to a boxing class once or twice a week depending on my health, or plans. One of the things my coach continually repeats is to "Keep it tight," meaning to keep your hands and arms boxed in and as close to your body as possible for protection. He always shouts this out at me, but I don't think he takes in the consideration that my chest stands out like 8 inches. Like coach, trust me when I say, my elbows are touching my chest, they best friends.

Or when I am in a cycling class, and I'm sprinting on the bike. Like you see a lot of women that want bigger breasts and invest in push-up bras, but they really need to make push-DOWN bras.

Like did you know there is a high percent chance that women will not work out, due to not finding a good-fitting sports bra, and are embarrassed by their breast movement and size?

HEB

One of the most beautiful things in life, in my personal opinion, is the art of cooking.

I love to Cook. During the Hurricane Harvey aftermath, I was staying in Manvel with my brother and my sister in law. On occasion, I would have to drive through Alvin, and I realized I needed to stop by HEB. I wanted to make spaghetti, something quick and easy since I was at work for nine hours and had a two-hour commute to and from work, due to the relocation.

I had never shopped at the Heb in Alvin before, and I could see why. It was very dimly lit, and it looked sketchy from the outside. The inside was even worse because they didn't have all of the ingredients that I needed to make spaghetti. SPAGHETTI, one of the least complicated meals almost anyone could make. They didn't have any meat such as ground meat, Italian sausage or meatballs. They didn't have the packets of seasoning mix to put in spaghetti or garlic bread. I was so pissed, like what the hell did HEB stand for? Here Ever…

What You can't Have

We have all heard the saying, "I always want what I can't have."

I believe that human nature has increased our chances of survival. We tend to accomplish things, and we want more and more, sometimes things or people that are not likely for us to have.

In other instances, we are continually chasing happiness. Sometimes we see that other people have something that we don't and we believe that is the solution to our unhappiness.

Or it could be that subconsciously we know that item or person is out of our reach and it makes us want it even more because we know we can't have it.

The human mind can be weird at times. Sometimes our wants, do not need an explanation and sometimes they do.

In psychology, this thought process is referred to as the Hedonic Treadmill. It allows us to keep wanting to achieve throughout our lives.

Sometimes the lyrics to the song "Waterfalls" by TLC can really become clear at times. …

Cruise

"Baby you're a song, you make me wanna roll my windows down and cruissseeeee."

Every time I think of the word "cruise" I think of this song. They say that a cruise is one of the cheapest vacation options "one" could have. They don't mention that a cruise isn't meant for "one" person. If you want to book a cruise, you have to book for two people. Sucks right? So you could end up paying on average $212.80 per day, per passenger. So for a five-day cruise, it could be up to $2,128.00. For that price I better see Jesus walk on water.


Why can't they offer cabins for just one person? There are people out there who would love to go on vacations on their own, to reflect or just because they might be single or have no one to go on a trip with.

Society has a tendency to behave like you SHOULD be in a relationship. People have too much interest in other peoples lives. They have too much time to gossip, and they are obsessed with "Societ…

Burning House

Mama: Play that song with Nelly, where he is in a burning house.

Me: Hot in here? *turns on the song*

Mama: Yes. *starts clapping**

Me: Mama, I need you to understand that song is not about a burning house.

Mama: So hot . Hot in here. *claps*

Me:


Two Birds and a Pea

Mama: Shan, me and you, are like, like two birds and a pea.

Me: We are what?

Mama: Like two birds and a pea.

Me: No Mama, you got birds of a feather and peas in a pod mixed up.

Mama: Ok, we are like two pods of peas.

Me: No Mama.

Mama: *huffs and puffs* Well, we close. *turns head*

Modern Slavery

It was a typical day. My job wanted to coordinate a team builder outside of work since we very seldom hung out. We ended up getting tickets to a Rockets game. The seats were so far up, any row higher we would have seen Jesus and his 12 Disciples. I kept forgetting I wasn't on a roller coaster, that's how high up we were. Luckily, I was able to invite my best friend due to the last minute call out from our manager. I was super excited since I worked with mostly guys, it was going to be nice to have another woman around. I was also happy my manager wasn't coming, she was faker than press on nails.


I picked my best friend up on the way to the game; She wanted to get amped up on our way there. I was playing my typical playlist, and she suggested we listened to her music. As soon as she plugged in her phone, the song "Modern Slavery" came on. I probably should have mentioned that my beautiful best friend is Caucasian :). As I was driving, I turned and looked at her an…
