Dear Miss Pearl,
I got two brothers and a sister and I am the youngest. I graduated from high school last year and I am going to community college so, I still live with my mom and dad. Everyone else is out on their own cause they cant stand my dad because he cheated on our mother and beat her up a couple of times.
I can usually tell when my dad is messing around on my mom because he starts staying out late and starts an argument with her about nothing. He asked me the other day why I am a “mama’s boy” because I worry about my mama. He actually told me that if I don’t start showing him that I’m getting pu$$y, that he will put me out because he is starting to think I’m a “fag”.
Miss Pearl, I’m not gay, but I don’t want to be like my dad and be disrespectful to women like he is to my mother and I don’t trust him around girls, he is embarrassing and he thinks that he can get any woman and would definitely try to holler at her. (Thats why my uncles don’t mess with him).
I have a girl, but I don’t want her around him because I have seen what he has done to my brothers girlfriends.
How can I make him leave me alone and stop telling the family that he thinks that he raised one “punk”?
Is there any way that you can afford to get your own apartment, or get a roommate to move out on your own?
Your father is one of those ignorant black men who contributes absolutely nothing to the African American community other than leave a legacy of ignorance and irresponsibility. In other words, your daddy ain’t $hit, probably ain’t gon’ never be $hit, and I’d suggest you get the hell out of his house so that you don’t have to spend too much more of the time you should be spending concentrating on your studies worrying about this $hit!
How sad, and utterly disgusting is it for a man to go around town spreading rumors that his own son is gay simply because he doesn’t bring women around him? As you suggested, I think he wants you to bring a woman around for his own voyeuristic needs! Your daddy is a sick bastard and I want to whoop his a$$ myself, so I can imagine what you’re going through!
I know that you’re concerned about your mother, but she has made her choice and that choice is to remain with your father so, if she wants to stay in an abusive, controlling relationship with a man who disrespects her and her children… let her have it – you can’t spend the rest of your life trying to “protect” someone who doesn’t appear to want your protection.
If this were the 50′s, I’d totally understand why a woman would remain in a relationship with a man who beats her and is a total dictator, but this is a new day. She don’t need to be there, she’s there because she wants to be. Don’t you waste any more of your life being miserable with her!
If you can’t afford to live alone, or don’t know anyone you can room with, call your siblings and ask if you can come and stay with one of them until you get on your feet – I’m sure they have a clear understanding of why you have a desire to get out of there.
50 said (without saying it) that Shaniqua Thompkins (his ex, and the mother of his child) most likely burned the house down herself because she had a court order to get out the very next day so it was, “If I can’t have it, you won’t have it!”
Of course, he was sure to reiterate that he’s not sure that that was her sentiment, but that it “comes across” that way.
Isn’t it funny that they have to use subtitles to make sure that people understand what the hell he’s trying to say?

Here’s another fraud perpetrated by the “machine” behind Beyonce to make her appear bigger than she really is (and this is not “hate” this is reality) Bey’s two videos, “If I were a Boy and Single Ladies left all of the other video performers out in the cold in 2008. How could those two videos have been so popular if they just came out toward the end of the year, you ask?
“If I Were a Boy” has been watched more than 34 million times alone while other high profile musicians have made enormous dents on YouTube: Soulja Boy, Rihanna, the Jonas Brothers and Chris Brown among them.
Here’s the lie – If you go to youtube and pull up, Rihanna or Chris Brown, you might find that fifty different people may have posted one of those singer’s song, each video getting millions of hits, but with Beyonce’, if you’ll notice, you’ll only find one, “If I were a Boy” and one, “Single Ladies”… with embedding disabled (which means that nobody can copy the video and post it anywhere else – so, if you want to see it, you’d have to go to youtube to watch that one video.
Technically, Rihanna’s “Umbrella” may have been seen more times, but because it was watched on 50 different channels… it doesn’t count!
That’s why when you see the video posted on a website other than youtube and you try to play it, it says, “content removed” – because it’s not the “official” video, so as soon as someone posts it, they have it removed so that all the hits will go to that one video making Beyonce’ look like she’s “broken” some sort of record, when the reality is that she didn’t.
RAPPER T.I. celebrated his last day of freedom before spending a year in jail on weapons charges by performing on New Year’s Eve at the Gansevoort in Miami – but it didn’t go as smoothly as he’d hoped.
Promoters sold revelers poolside tables for a whopping $10,000, but when partiers got there expecting to see the concert, they were told T.I. would be performing inside the hotel’s small ballroom instead. “The city wouldn’t allow him to perform outside,” a Gansevoort rep said. Even worse, before T.I. could take the stage, the hotel had to get DJ Cassidy off it. “Cassidy thinks he’s a celebrity now,” a insider said.
“He refused to stop playing, and then he wanted his assistant and girlfriend to stay on stage with him. It was a mess. He finally shut everything down and stormed off.” The countdown was saved by T.I. doing an a cappella version of his hit, “Live Your Life,” while DJ Jus Ske stepped in to finish the night off.
See, this is why I think people should leave Soulja Boy alone. At one point, Will Smith was considered “corny” and a “clown” and he went on to be the most respected black actor in Hollywood! Let that little boy be a little boy (after you read this story).
2008 was a good year for Will Smith. Despite a slowing economy, The Fresh Prince found a way to make cash registers ring at the box office, generating the most box office revenue with “Hancock” and “Seven Pounds.”
The report, released by Quigley polled theater owners to determine the top ten biggest stars of the year. Smith is just the second black actor to claim the top slot.
Sidney Poitier was the first, taking top honors in 1968. According to box office numbers, Smith’s summer film, “Hancock” grossed $228 million. His winter drama, “Seven Pounds” has not had the same luck, grossing $39 million to date.
The suspect’s father took the knife and called police. The victim was transported to Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center in non-critical condition.
The suspect was charged with Aggravated Assault and was taken to Juvenile Court.

DANBURY, Conn. — On the day that Donald Peters died, he unknowingly provided financial security for his wife of 59 years and their family.
Peters bought two Connecticut Lottery tickets at a local 7-Eleven store on Nov. 1 as part of a 20-year tradition he shared with his wife Charlotte. Later that day, the 79-year-old retired hat factory worker suffered a fatal heart attack while working in his yard in Danbury.
On Friday, his widow cashed in one of the tickets: a $10 million winner which, in her grief over her husband’s death, she had put aside and almost discarded before recently checking the numbers.
“I’m numb,” Charlotte Peters, 78, said at Connecticut Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill.
Donald Peters usually bought the tickets for 10 weeks at a stretch, so the winning ticket he bought Nov. 1 for the Dec. 2 drawing was among several that Charlotte Peters put aside as she, their three children and two grandchildren coped with his sudden death.
“I was in the grocery store and I had it checked and they told me I was a winner,” she said. “I had no idea how much it was.”
She said she thought she had won $6 million but was surprised to learn from lottery officials she’d won $10 million.
Charlotte Peters has 60 days to decide whether to take a $6 million pre-tax lump sum payment or stretch the winnings into 21 yearly payments of almost $477,300 each.
She does not yet know what she will do with the money.
“I’ve always wanted a Corvette, but I don’t think I’ll buy one. I’ll stick to a small car. I might go to Mohegan Sun,” she said, referring to the casino in Connecticut. “I’m going to go home and sit and think.”
The Peters children think their father would have appreciated the irony.
“He’d be very mad, he just passed away and she won a lot of money,” said Brian Peters, one of the couple’s three children. “He’d say, ‘Figures!’”
Police said the father, Danny Platt, 22, confessed to killing his son, though police would not say how he killed the boy.
“There was an issue, believe it or not, with him (Danny Platt) recently being ordered to pay child support, and he had made some comments that he would he kill either the wife or the child before he paid child support,” said Superintendent Warren Riley at a press conference. “He was recently ordered to pay child support. Our understanding is he, for the first time in two years, picked up his son, who he had visitation rights for.”
A few hours earlier the Orleans Parish coroner removed the body of a young child from a Central City location, after police were searching the area near where the two-year-old boy was claimed to have been abducted.
The body, however, has not been officially identified as Ja Shawn Powell, the missing two-year-old, but police said that Platt led them to the body and confessed.
“I’m sorry about killing my baby,” said Platt to a mass of reporters and flash bulbs as he was led by detectives. “And I’m sorry for the family that I caused trouble with.
The body was found in the 1900 block of Jackson Avenue, near Van McMurray Park. The alleged kidnapping took place near the intersection of Jackson Avenue and Brainard Street, a few blocks away from where the body was found.
The New Orleans Police received the report of a two-year-old child who was taken from his father at gunpoint while the two were on the street late Friday night near the corner of Jackson Avenue and Carondelet Streets.
Police put out a description of Ja Shawn and described the abductors were described as three black males, approximately 29 years of age, who were wearing black clothing and armed with AK 47s. They were in a 2000-model, dark-colored Chevrolet Tahoe/GMC Yukon with black tinted windows and shiny paint. There were no license plates on the vehicle. The vehicle was last seen traveling north on Jackson Ave. in New Orleans.
The mother, however, doubted the story from Ja Shawn’s father.
“We went through child support court on December 4,” said Daniella Powell, mother of Ja Shawn. “First his dad was ordered to pay $446 in regular child support, and he was ordered to pay me $4,000 in back child support.”
She said Platt never picked up the child before, but suddenly Friday evening, around 8:30 p.m., he called, saying he wanted Ja Shawn to spend the weekend with him.
Powell has not seen Ja Shawn since, saying she had to give the child to the father because he had visitation rights to see Ja Shawn.
“Then he called me back at 11 p.m.,” she said. “And he was like,‘Your son was kidnapped, bye.’ He didn’t even say anything after.”
“I called him back and said, ‘How do you let a two-year-old get kidnapped? What was you doing that he got kidnapped?’” she said. “He said, ‘Why you blaming this on me? Why you blaming this on me? I ain’t got time for this, bye.’”
Powell called Platt back a third time and asked if he called police. “He said, “Yeah, I called the police. As a matter of fact, they’re here right now and I’m about to flag them down.” But Daniella said when she talked to police, they told her the father had not called them.
Because Powell had called police, officers flagged the father down, she said.
Powell said that she saw the father last night in the back of a police car, but he would not look at her.
“First he said that a white lady came by and snatched him out of his arms,” she said. “Then he told the police that it was some guys that came up to him and said that they was looking for a guy named Johnny.”
The father said he told police that he told the men he was not Johnny, but they insisted he had their money, pulling several AK-47 machine guns on the father and took the child, Powell said.
Powell believes child support is the motive. “He said it’s my fault that he is $4,000 in the hole. I think it’s him; he wants me to take him off child support.”
In addition to telling the police different stories, according to Powell, the father deleted calls from his phone, trying to hide that he had called and talked to Powell, and now police are giving him a lie detector test.
Former President George H.W. Bush apparently isn’t satisfied with what his first born son has done to the country, so he’s determined to get another one of his boys in the office to finish the country off! Bush Sr, said his son Jeb should run for president and blasted the New York Times for its grossly unfair criticism of another son, President George W. Bush.
Oh hell no!
During an interview on “FOX News Sunday,” the nation’s 41st president said Jeb, the former governor of Florida, is “as qualified and as able as anyone I know in the political scene” to be president.
“I’d like to see him run,” Bush said. “I’d like to see him be president some day.
“As president, it’s about service, service for the greatest country on the face of the Earth and the honor that goes with it,” Bush said. “I think Jeb fits that description.”
He added: “I mean, right now is probably a bad time, because we’ve got enough Bushes in there.” In the meantime, Jeb could take another job, his father suggested.
“If Jeb wants to run for the Senate from Florida, he ought to do it,” Bush said. “He’d be an outstanding senator. This is a guy that really has a feel for people, the issues in Florida and nationally. And his political days ought not to be over, says his old father.”
But the current President Bush’s political days will soon be over, prompting the former President Bush to unburden himself about what he calls unfair criticism of his eldest son.
“It’s been tough on his father and his mother,” the ex-president said. We’re not very good sports about sitting around and hearing him hammered, I think, unfairly.
“Now, there were some things that clearly he deserved criticism for,” he said. “But I think the idea that everything that’s a problem in this country should be put on his shoulders — I don’t think that’s fair. And I’m not trying to get back in game by criticizing people, for example, the New York Times, but you know, it’s just grossly unfair.”
This quaint fixer-upper comes with a sense of history — as seen in the charred carpet and blown out windows and doors where SWAT teams left their mark after a raid in May.

People are definitely interested in purchasing some of the good $hit up for sale at the Death Row Records sale next week, but their asses are afraid to buy them because they don’t want to “cross” Suge Knight.
Unreleased songs by the likes of 2Pac and Snoop Dogg are set to go on sale in a couple of weeks and I ain’t buyin’ $hit!
Shugga was forced to turn over the songs when he declared bankruptcy in 2006. A source tells the paper, ‘”It could be a tough sale. Some people don’t want to go near the catalogue because they think Suge still believes it’s his.”
Dear Miss Pearl,
My new years resolution for 2009 is to stop taking crap from my boyfriend. He has cheated, lied, made two babies and all in 2008. I have told him that my resolution was to stop dealing with drama from anybody in the new year and he promised that we would work on our relationship.
Well, Christmas came and I got my gift. A silver bracelet with the name of his baby mama inscribed on the inside of it. He brought my gift by and when I opened it, I could tell that something was wrong because of the look on his face, but he would never say what was going on.
I told him that I loved the bracelet, but he kept trying to get me to take it off talking about it was for a “special occasion” – well, I refused to take it off because I liked the way it looked. He picked a fight and left. His baby mama called me and said, “I guess you got my gift because I got a bracelet with your name on it!”
When I took the bracelet off, sure enough, it said – you will always be my woman with his name and her name in it. I told her that she could come and get it if she wanted it, and then I called him.
He tried to lie and say that it didn’t mean anything, it was just him being “nice” to his baby mama, but I aint’ buying it.
Should I accept his story, or do you think that there is something more going on that I should know about?
&itch, its 2009, and its time to leave alll the drama and bull$hit from 2008 in 2008! If this man wanted to be with you, then there is no reason on earth that he should be telling another woman that she’ll “always be his” and have his name and her name inscribed on jewelry.
Thank the God’s that he made the mistake of giving you the wrong box and chalk it up to the game! Let his ghetto ass go. If he wants to be with his baby mama, give him to her! Ain’t no time for BS in this new year, baby!
I ain’t takin’ no $hit this year, and neither should you. You got your answer, he aint’ $hit – what more do you need? Give his girlfriend her Christmas gift and consider it a gift to yourself and walk the hell away!

I swear, they need to adopt this practice in US prisons – give them bastards something to do other than get married to each other and iron grilled cheese sandwhich’s!
OK, I guess I’ll go out on a limb here and admit that I was bored as hell with season three of Keyshia Cole’s “reality” show – for one, I find it interesting that Keyshia Cole has little to no personality (but a lot of tolerance because Frankie would have been told where to get off a long time ago if she were my unappreciative assed mother).
We didn’t get to see too much Keyshia this season, but maybe she does that on purpose. Is the reason she has a reality show and surrounds herself with larger than life characters so that we’ll be so caught up in the lives of the other people that we’ll forget that we haven’t learned a damn thing about Keyshia? (Smart move, girl – I gotta give it up)
Anyway, in this season we learned a couple of new things – for one, these chicks move way too fast. Neffe just had a baby from some other dude, and then all of a sudden, this Soullow character pops up out of nowhere and its like he’s the “father figure” to her other children and, from what she says, “He’s been around for a long time” – How? When? Where was he when you were making a baby with this other fella, Neffe?”
Anyway, Soullow (who turns out to be an Atlanta area rapper – surprised?) took Neffe to Las Vegas for her birthday and gave her a nice rock (asking her to be his wife.)
Question – if your baby is less than a year old, should you be contemplating marriage with another man so soon? But on a more serious note… when did she get a divorce from her last husband?
Frankie…. poor Frankie! She’s just as clueless as she was the day she came out of prison. (I still look at her eyes on some of these shows and say, she’s high as hell) But nothing much has changed on that front… she’s still mad at Yvonne for “taking” Keyshia, even though, its clear that they took five, or is it six other children from her drug addicted ass.
I’ll never figure out why she’s mad at the people who wouldn’t allow her crack addicted ass to continue to have children and keep them. I mean, they took about four more after Keyshia – if she didn’t straighten up and fly right after that, surely she would have learned her lesson after the next one, right? Yeah, right.
At any rate, Frankie’s irresponsible, clueless ass seems to believe that these 19 year old boys she brings home are really interested in her – and not Keyshia’s fame and money. Low and behold, as the season ended, we find out that Frankie has a five year old son! WTF?
