Wut My Name is?

If we were made in His Image then call Us by our name, most intellects do not believe in God but they fear Us just the same! My cypher keeps moving like a rolling stone! What in the world is Badu talking about? Yall just sanging and sanging? Who’s the “His“? Who’s the “God“? and most importantly who’s the “Us“?

The Image!

Let’s break that thang down the “His” we are the majority made in the image of the one true God, Allah, Buddah, Muhammad, what ever you choose to call him, I know you know somebody that looks like Him.  And I know you know somebody who doesn’t! Ya dig!

The Us, is me, you, he, she, him, and her! Those of you have been oppressed because of your natural “image”, HIS image. Feel me! Yes I am talking about you, walking round here thinking you free cause you think you earned a degree! So quick to turn your back when she and He, was there with you when you were wearing payless shoes! Now look at your attitude, so damn rude and cruel.  Wake  you intelligent FOOL!

Badu speak to people please! See usually I don’t do this but Imma hit wit a blast from da past! On and On- Baduism, then I want you to Jump up in the Air and you bet not brang you ass down! Ya heard!

New AmERYKAH Get Naked Round dis Bitch!

Um… If yall ain’t went and copped that New AmERYKAH Part 2 , Imma say it like Badu “that’s terrible itnit” Sholl is! If  the first single Window Seat didn’t get your panties in a bunch I am sure the video did with all the hoopla the media is trying to create about it. I was talking to a customer service rep with Verizon Wireless today. His name is Brandon while I was waiting on Brandon to review my account; I simply asked “hey Brandon you got Badu’s new CD?” He said “Nope but I heard the video was a must see” I said “Indeed it is” and I asked for his email address and sent him the link to Badu’s Window Seat Video!

So Brandon I hope that inspired you and if it didn’t let me give you some more reasons to go out and buy the CD not now but rite now!My personal favorites:

Badu said “look nicca you coming round here acting like you want this, yo you don’t wanna fall in love with me! Cause I’m tellin you off gate I’m crazy! (slow sangin and flower brangin if my burgular alarm starts ringing) Yall I don’t think she talking about ADT. Nicca play with me if you want too. (Your funeral)!

Badu’s you know you wrong for this one! See first I thought Badu was telling this guy “dude I ain’t going now where I love you”! You Got Me! Wrong! Badu like nicca as long as the MuNNy is right! You can’t turn me away! I will do whatever it takes to stay in the running. Watch your back dudes she got her fingers crossed behind her back waiting on you to drop your stack!

This one is so deep! Ladies I really hope you are listening! Men this could be for you too I don’t want to give it all away but listen! When she sits down and focus on what it is you are doing to her “get of my knees” she’ll remember who she was before you built that wall!

That’s all Imma give yall gone on and cop the CD! It comes with the lyrics put on your thinking caps cause there is a lesson to be learnt!

Hey Stalkers, Cristina Arra Simmons

Hey for those of you getting fake profiles of people that look like you cause you want to get in on my blogs or up  in my business. If you saying something Good I will post it but check it… You ain’t getting linked to your profiles cause you faking and hiding behind other people. What yall gone do when yall read it again and you can’t click on your name. Guilty until proven innocent. LMAO

Yall this is another example of how far they’ll go to keep up with me. Remember I told you all I didn’t want to tell anybody that I was writing with Russell Simmons’  GlobalGrind online magazine because of the stalkers. Well this is one of them hiding behind a profile on Facebook. Wanting to get my resume that was already posted on Google. However this is the trick this person used to keep up with me and he didn’t think I was going to figure out it was him/them. Jesus Christ I have to call these damn stalkers out every time. And it usually the ones that are “in the closet”. Girls and Boys!!! Please pay attention to the BOLD and how this fool wasn’t paying attention to the clues I was giving him. Feel free, and click on the names I love to expose fools.

…what is it you are presently doing now? That is, to make a living for yourself?

The reason I ask is because I am trying to make sure I know who and where all the conscious Afrikans are I come across in case there is opportunity for us to work together or provide a means for us to be more self-sufficient.

Also, if aren’t necessarily working in the area you desire, could you share with me what you are good at and what you want to do (functionally)?

Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 10:44am
Here is a copy of me cover letter I am currently unemployed. I will send my resume with the next email.
Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 10:45am
My Resume.
Alex James Bevly III January 13 at 10:53am
I can’t read them…are you able to email me at ____.____@gmail.com?

It keeps asking me to log into University of Phoenix…

Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 10:53am
ok one second
Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 11:08am
Did you get my email?
Alex James Bevly III January 13 at 11:18am
Yes, I got it….thanks…

Just so you know, I used to be a professional resume writer. If you want some help with your resume I’d be glad to revise it for you. Plus, if you want them then I would have a few suggestions for you.

How long have you been out of work?

Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 11:19am
since Dec 09

Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 11:20am
sure if you have some suggestions on things I can add or revise I am open to it.
Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 11:37am
But to be honest people come to me to get help with their resume writing which is why I posted it on google cause people are thieves so I give it to them for free no need to steal
Alex James Bevly III January 13 at 12:15pm
Well, perhaps it is just my line of work, but I would take out reference to your blog in your cover letter. I am a manager that does regular hiring, and I can tell you that you are risking alot. I would also try a bulletized approach to your work experience. Lastly, you may want someone else to proofread your resume because I found a few grammatical errors.

Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 12:38pm
well highlight those errors and email me back please. And in all honesty I knew that my cover letter and resume wasn’t gonna get me hired because of what my blog says. I just needed my blog to be read because of the things I was going through.
Alex James Bevly III January 13 at 12:42pm
well, first of all, what kind of job do you want?
Alex James Bevly III January 13 at 12:42pm
What field?
Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 12:47pm
I want a career that’s help people learn be it on a professional level, a personal level, or just because they have a desire to learn more. I want a position that helps me enable others to achieve their full potential. I want to share my experiences to help others and I know this is a type of position that open to all fields.
Alex James Bevly III January 13 at 12:48pm
Ok…cool…

What do you want to do with your Criminal Justice degree when you finish?

Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 12:55pm
I am glad you asked that question. I don’t want to be a police officer however since I am a writer I want to help solve crimes and write about things I see, who are victims, who are criminals and possibly help somebody determine why these things happen in hopes to prevent similar activities in the future. Make sense?
Alex James Bevly III January 13 at 1:08pm
It does make sense, just don’t know of any particular jobs like that right now. Not to say you can’t actually create that field for yourself.
Cristina Arra Simmons January 13 at 1:13pm
I think I can create in the future however right now I think I would like to work with an Attorney, investigator, detective or in the field. I want to see the how things function on the inside. And write about it.
They just can’t get enough. I got this email after I this blog was originally posted. Also read the comment at the end of the blog. STALKER!

Cristina Arra Simmons December 29, 2009 at 1:00pm
This is what I went through working for “diverse” small companies in Tallahassee, Fl.

So while these men were (ex bosses) people who run companies and has access to all types of private information. I just wanted to make sure I tell you that part “access to all types of private information”…
Alex James Bevly III February 4 at 9:37pm Report
You need to take that BS off them blogs, because it shows up when someone does a Google search of my name. No one is stalking you, or at least I am not. I have a wife and children, and what you are doing is just beyond ridiculous. If those blogs are not removed about me then I will be reporting you on FaceBook administration, as well as the websites that are carrying your blogs. Everyone that reads them says that you are obviously delusional.

Social Network Applications are a Political Distraction!!! No more Farmville People!!! Cristina Arra Simmons

Hey people while you are sitting around baking cakes in your facebook Cafe applications and farming on the virtual farm in Farmville you are missing out on real conversations such as this. The types of things they really don’t want you to know!!! I reposted this on my facebook fan page.

Cristina Arra HamiltonArra Da Flygurl Considering that there are facebook applications for nearly everything under the sun, it is remarkable to find none of them keep track of the National debt. Even more baffling is the fact the every American does not know the National debt. In short, please stop playing farmville and find articles, books, or documentaries online. Black Male Teachers

LOL…now that’s for real.

If people actually new the debt, then they wouldn’t be praising Obama. $1.4T when it was $400B when Bush left office. Yeah, them banks got paid…took money right out of the national treasury and no one is talking about it.

Arra Da Flygurl

Arra Da Flygurl

Do they ever talk about what they do wrong?No they just find a way to distract America. Maybe that’s why they trying say there’s a pot of gold in Haiti. Is America gonna steal from Haiti to cover the National Debt? I wouldn’t it pass them. However it’s not all President Obama’s fault. He was trying to clean up Bush’s mess who might I add was asked to team up with Bill Clinton for the Haiti relief, where is Busheee? He looking like Waldo, can’t nobody find him.

Alex James Bevly III

Alex James Bevly III

Bush didn’t do anything that would incline Obama to shell out 1.2T in low-interest loans to the banks, as well as almost $500B in free bailout money. Bush didn’t incline Obama to embark in fruitless “stimulus” projects around the country with 100’s of Billions of tax dollars where he promised if it passed the unemployment wouldn’t even right 9%… well, its double-digits now. Bush didn’t incline him to waste a year of Washington’s time (and untold tax dollars) embarking on a fallacious “universal health care” bill that is only universal health *insurance*.

I can see an argument that he had to clean up the messy wars in Iraq and Afghanistan…which he hasn’t done either, but ok, I get that. All this other blame-shifting just shows how spineless and irresponsible Democrats, including Obama, are.

Arra Da Flygurl

Arra Da Flygurl

Did you watch the State of the Union address last night? No Bush might have not did anything to incline him but what other option did he have? As far as the Bail out… Obama says he had to do what was necessary. If he had of not done anything he’d be just as worst as Bush? Obama says ” I supported the LAST administrations efforts (Bush) to create… the Financial Rescues program”. He supported them; then he had to revamp the program so that it will do exactly what it says. “Financially Rescue” Not “Financially In debt you” I included this for your viewing pleasure.

Did you hear when he said he was going to Charge the Large Banks while smaller banks were going to have to invest in small businesses, his plan is going to help this country move in the right direction. It’s them damn Republicans that were just sitting around like. I’m sorry but President Obama lost me after he said “health care reform, Job Bill, and gays in the Military”. It’s not Obama it’s them lazy ass Republicans that are wasting time playing their “wait it out” games! Let’s not forget he did say he is going to make education more affordable please pass that part along….

Alex James Bevly III

Alex James Bevly III

I didn’t watch it, but saw Obama’s main points on CNN and YouTube. I know it is easy to play the party line, but Democrats are just as much at fault as the Republicans. All presidents make extraordinary claims and promises during the SOTU address. Bush talked about hydrogen-powered cars and all kinds of fantasy during his.

Oh yeah, and no one … buys that Obama had to bail out the banks because he did that and it saved absolutely nothing. They still aren’t lending and companies continue to have the same problems trying to keep their doors open. It seems like Democrats are completely clueless to how business and economics work. Republicans seem to have a better clue, but don’t really care about the people for a host of corrupt reasons.

When people take their heads out of their respective parties’ asses then there will be real progress in this country.

” It seems like Democrats are completely clueless to how business and economics work. Republicans seem to have a better clue, but don’t really care about the people for a host of corrupt reasons.When people take their heads out of their respective parties’ asses then there will be real progress in this country”.
If we were in the same room I’d thump you across the forehead for this.
This is exactly how they want the Nation to think! Don’t you realize Bush and his damn Daddy messed up the economy because he knew who was next in line. They wanted and are trying their best to make the “Democratic” party look like the guilty ones. Please tell me I am not the only one who noticed that just before President Obama was elected lots of people were being laid off. They were hiring but only those who think and feel like you and they were firing oops my bad “laying off with no intent to rehire” people like me. …
Also I want to say this if you get a chance please watch the President’s State of Union address I love the part when President Obama says um hey let’s not forget that this was a problem I created this is something I am trying to change (the National debt). Then look at how John McCain especially turns and whispers to his homeboys like “why he got to be bringing that up!” Puh leez don’t come at me talking about what republicans seem to know. It’s an illusion that’s all they know. How to act like they know something when there are learning based on what somebody higher than them said.

The “Spiritual” Political Views of Little Brother: Kris Florida Boy

My son was asked a question on facebook. I wanted to share with you his response!

Darrius Unity Dickerson Now I have to ask about your “Spiritual” Political Views Little Brother.

Kristopher Hamilton

Kristopher Hamilton: I believe in God… However I don’t claim a denomination of Christianity. My mom is starting to teach me about the Religions of our world. So I am slowly but surely taking it all in so that I can make a very intelligent choice. I know that I don’t agree with in God we trust. America is confusing it’s people on who God really is.

Darrius Unity Dickerson

Darrius Unity Dickerson: I agree with you in the respect that America knows about as much about God as we do WTC 7. My question is, why are your Political Views labled Spiritual? I was wondering if there is any particular reason. It would make more sense to me if it were your Religious Views. Perhaps you know something that I do not.

Kristopher Hamilton

Kristopher Hamilton: Well Spiritual means I don’t claim Christianity because it’s confusing (no leadership that I can trust and know that they have my best interest in mind). My Mom says we should allow the Spirit of God to lead us. I am God and there fore am led by His spirit in me. Hence, the Label Spiritual. Following the Spirit of God, the true leader!!!

Darrius Unity Dickerson

Darrius Unity Dickerson: I understand Spiritual Son. My question is, what does that have to do with the price of tea in China; the Brooklyn bridge; or your Political Views?

Kristopher Hamilton

Kristopher Hamilton: Good question can I do some research and get back to you on this? I didn’t know social networks were suppose to make me think so much, LOL.

Cristina Arra Hamilton

Cristina Arra Simmons: I understand what you are asking Kris @Darius. But I have a question.That question is this I think about the Earth Quakes in Haiti and their timing. I only makes me wonder why are there separate countries continents and nations? Who is responsible for the dividing of the land? It was originally “one nation under God”. One land until the “melting of the Ice” that supposedly caused the land to divide creating other nations and countries. Who is responsible for that? Is it those same people who are responsible for “climate, alcohol beverage and population control” to name a few.

Cristina Arra Hamilton

Cristina Arra Simmons: Ok now work, @ Kristopher… Share!!!

Justice for the Indigent (Po’ Folk) By Cristina Arra Hamilton

The Professor in my criminal justice class brought up something  interesting  in one of our discussions that I’d like to share with you. I will share his question and then I will share several responses including mine. This topic discusses Attorney Representation for the poor. Again the responses are from women that share an online class together. Compare and contrast their responses and think about it. Here goes!

My Professor wrote:

The problem of discrimination and disparity within the criminal justice system cannot be linked to any one area of the criminal justice process. The problem exists at every level of the justice system. In order to effectively combat these disparities, we must use a systematic approach to tackle the problem. We need to address the “assembly-line” justice that our poor are receiving. The financial status of an individual should have no bearing on the type of legal representation the person receives. Protections under the Constitution, as well as federal and criminal statutes prohibit racial discrimination in the judicial process. The criminal justice system needs to be just as diligent about providing equal legal representation for accused that are indigent.

Class, what are your feelings on this subject?(Crumpler, 2010)

Response 1. Excellent point, equality in legal representation is one of the areas needing the most attention. For example, the pay scale difference between a public defense attorney and a prosecuting attorney. I work with both on a daily basis, not only is the pay scale different, but so is the work load. Public defenders are sometimes unable to provide adequate counsel because of the disparity in workloads. To even begin to correct this and other problems, we must start at the top and work our way down.

Response 2. In all honesty, I think it will always be a problem. It is human nature to see the class half empty, so to speak. If someone does not have representation and cannot afford it, they are given representation. Part of the problem is when you receive that representation and they believe that you are guilty. You are not going to be able to get adequate representation, whether you did it or not. It is not that we do it on purpose, it is how the brain reacts to the knowledge. Does that make sense?

Arra’s Response 3. My feelings on this subject is this if a person decides to become a Public Defender and believes that certain people shouldn’t be treated fairly then is law really their passion? Or did they take a test in High School and based on those results decided or was told by the “Guidance” Counselor the best thing for them to study is law when their true desire is to be a dancer or an artist etc. Or is it because Dad or Mom studied Law and this person was programmed from birth to follow in one of the parents footsteps? Or did this person become a Public Defender to help ensure that these indigent people are placed behind bars because this is the way it has been for so long and they’re not going to make a change? How many people are in these positions because they believe in what’s right? Judging by the (majority) in the prison population, my guess would be not too many. I can only speak as a minority single mother with a male child, because I am intelligent and because I am confident and not afraid to take risks, the college town I lived in Florida, which is controlled by majority white men, who felt because of my talents, I needed to be hidden from society because I could be taken up the space or career that one of their own should have. So basically they felt I didn’t deserve to be anything but poor unless I submitted to their will and again by analyzing the prison population and my personal experiences as a minority woman with law enforcement, this is how the entire system thinks in regards to the “indigent”.

What? I was given this world I didn't make it. So what's up? What yall wanna do?
