A GREAT FRIDAY MESSAGE: JUST BELIEVE THAT EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT!


Good Morning Everyone! It's a GREAT FRIDAY for SURE! It's the end of the Month! Pay Day for a lot of folks! It's Warm FINALLY, consistently warm! It's a good time for God's People! Don't let ANYONE take your joy away! Know that whatever you do in life, BE HAPPY ABOUT IT! People might not understand you or what you're about, BUT GOD DOES! Put everything in His hands and know that He will Give you the Desires of your heart and all will be well! God bless everyone on today!

You know, when I look at my life, it's actually been pretty darn good. So many things did happen, but it could have been so much worse. We get so caught up in the wrong things and the wrong people that we sometimes forget about all the good things that God is doing in our lives. SURE, we might be SINGLE or MONEY MAY BE FUNNY or WORKING A JOB WE CANT STAND, but you know what, it's ok. "Well, what you do MEAN it's ok Professor JT?" I'm Glad You Asked!! We have to realize that the things we may be the MOST unhappy about, someone is wishing they even had a LITTLE of what you have. We may not have everything we want and need, but we have to have faith that better days are on the way! This has been on of the BEST SUMMERS I have had in a very long time. So many summers I dreaded getting up because my money wasn't what I wanted it to be or because I was single. I look back on all of that and realized, I wasted a lot of fun summers moping around over stuff that really wasn't that important. We have to Carpe Diem...SEIZE THE DAY! We have to realize that even though things may be rough now, still thank God for life and that more abundantly. No matter what we're going through, we have to realize that ONE DAY... Everything is going to be ALRIGHT!

Everyday, I wake up and say "Thank You Jesus!" I may roll out of bed kind of slow, but I thank God I got up. See, I get JOY when I think about, what all God has done for me! 1 Corinthians 2:9 says it all! We can't even SEE all that the Lord has for store for us who loves Him. But as long as we keep getting up and doing what we can every single day, after a while, things come together for us. There is so much in store for us if we keep pressing, keep believing, and faint not. YES, we want to give up some days. Some days it just seems like giving up would be such an easier thing to do. But I read something that always stuck with me when I was going through in my life one day, "God shows up at the 11th hour, but most people give up right at 10:45!" You are SO CLOSE to your miracle, to your breakthrough, to your blessing! You just have to HOLD ON a little while longer. I know it hurts! I know it gets hard! But God won't put more on you than you can bear. Stay in your Word! READ IT! Get the encouragement that you need. Get around Godly Believers and Positive People like yourself.

 See, we have to be happier about the life that we have and live! If we're not, it will just pass us by. YEARS we waste thinking about what could and would have happened IF this person wouldn't have been there or if THIS wouldn't have happened. But you know what...IT'S OK TO MOVE ON AND LET IT GO! Don't let another day, as a matter of fact, don't go into August thinking about that situation or problem anymore! LET IT GO! August is the 8th Month of the YEAR! 8 is the Number of NEW BEGINNINGS! What will your New Beginning be TOMORROW, that will set you up for the rest of your 2015 to be a Success? It's going to be OK! I'm not just telling you, I'm a living Witness! Just a few years ago, I was living with people, now, I have my own house. Just a few years ago I was working a part time job, now I'm in my Career and loving it! Just a few years ago it was a dream to get my PhD, now in a few weeks, I'll be starting my PhD Program! EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE...ALRIGHT! God bless you today! Believe and have faith that things will and are going to be and get so much better for you really, really soon! Go after what you want, write a plan, make it PLAIN! What you want still and can happen, if you just BELIEVE and push towards it!

STAY IN YOUR LANE! Why Celebs And Other Folks Need To Stick To WHAT THEY DO!


Good Morning Everyone! It's a Great Thursday Morning and I pray that you are feeling blessed today. I hope everyone is feelin the new upgrades to The Professor JT's Blog! It's Awesome RIGHT?!?! LOL! I appreciate all the support the last three years and I'm feeling blessed and good about all that God has in store for us all. Stay with God with all that you do. Be Blessed, get Encouragement from the Word of God when you need it, find people that can help you be the best that you can be every single day. God bless everyone on today. Know that tomorrow isn't promised to any of us! 
Live today to your FULLEST!


It seems like these days, with social media and all the television stations that we have, when a famous person has something to say, someone will allow them to say it. Everyone has this VOICE that they feel like they have to let be heard by the World when it comes to serious topics we're all dealing with. NOW, I'm not saying everyone doesn't have some good points to some things. I like listening to some people like David Banner and Dr Marc Lamont Hill speak on Racial Topics. But take for instance Bill Cosby. Bill Cosby YES went to college and everything like that, but he is by career and trade an entertainer and comedian. For YEARS, he made us all laugh. As he got older, instead of staying in his lane of entertainment and comedian, he started doing public speaking engagements, talking about things like politics and other national/international issues. See, the thing is, if you're famous, people are going to come out, LISTEN, and dissect everything you have to say. SO, you have to KNOW what you're talking about, and a lot of times, a lot of these people REALLY DON'T! Whether a Pastor talking deep about Politics, an Athlete talking about Music and Art, even an Educator talking about many Social Issues. We have to realize that just because we have a little status in our lives doesn't mean we need to be the Guru on speaking on every subject and topic.


I think in life we all look for the next MLK or Malcolm X. That next person who is truly going to speak for the Black People. A lot of times people just start speaking on topics to get a check or get even more famous. I don't believe MLK or Malcolm X ever TRULY wanted to be who they became. They saw a need and filled it. The Black Community needs more people like that. People that realize that speaking up on topics needs real passion and attention from who is speaking on it, and people don't need to do it unless they absolutely know what they're talking about. We have to be careful about speaking on any and every topic, because when someone who is REALLY engaged in that area tries to check us about what we know, we could really embarrass ourselves and the people we're trying to represent. So just because you have enough money to run for President, doesn't mean a person needs too. So many people are just trying to say things for all the wrong reasons, not knowing that people will chop up your statements so much, it will make you look like a Monster when it's all said and done. We got to pray for our people. Let people speak their minds YES, but don't take everything to a grain of salt from someone who hasn't been taught or trained in certain areas.

Is A Man's GREATEST MAKE OR BREAK, EVEN BLESSING OR CURSE...A WOMAN!?!


Good Morning Everyone! I hope that everyone had an amazing weekend as I'm still in recovery from a VERY BUSY Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration Weekend! I was SO BLESSED to have the opportunity to talk to some of the Indy Youth at the "Your Life Matters" Summit at the Indy Downtown Hyatt Hotel on Friday about The Professor JT Blog, Technology, & Media. It was great to sit with some of Indy's Elite as we gave back some of the great things we have been taught over the years to the Youth, like WATCHING what you put on the Internet and Social Media. I also was able to check out the Education and Relationship Panel on Saturday at the Indiana Convention Center, which had the likes of Omari Hardwick, Derek Luke, and Stephen Bishop. DROVE THE INDY WOMEN CRAZY! I don't think they listened to ONE WORD these Brothers said! LOL! Finally, shout out to my Home Church, Christ Temple Apostolic in Indy, as they Celebrated their 100th Church Convention in the City of Indianapolis and BOY did they have some CHURCH this past week! I'm blessed to be a part of such a great city with great events and history! GOD IS TRULY GOOD! Continue to give back to your communities and love God the entire way! WATCH HIM MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE! GOD BLESS!


So the other day, someone tweeted out how it just seems like a lot of times a big downfall for a Man...is a WOMAN! WELL, we have to realize at the end of the day THAT MAN CHOSE to be with that Woman. Whether if things are done spitefully or it's just how the cookie crumbled in that relationship, truly a Woman's presence in a Man's life can make or break everything about him. Women have more POWER than what some of us Men even realize. OH, this goes back WAY into the Bible Days. David and Bathsheba, Samson and Delilah, SHOOT, even ADAM AND EVE! Some of the GREATEST STORIES ever told involved some of the greatest Men being effected by a Woman some how or some way. Now, not every story with a Woman effecting a Man is a tragedy, one of the greatest stories ever told is how God selected a Virgin Woman to birth a King named Jesus. Sometimes these Men bring the curses of life on themselves, by doing their Women dirty. Cheating, Lying, Not Supporting the Woman or the kids. We have seen tremendous downfalls of Great Men because of their lack of love to their Women. 





I don't think I've seen more of an epic Downfall for a Man once he did a Woman wrong than from Tiger Woods. The once heralded possible Greatest Golfer of All Time has taken an epic fall from Grace as the turmoil of his divorce from him Wife has seriously took a toll on his life and Golf Career. Yeah, Tiger was clowning when he should have been at the Hospital with his wife. See, you can't do a Woman wrong and don't think that stuff won't come back and effect you! The age ol saying goes, "It's Cheaper to Keep Her!" still reigns true today. Look at Warren Sapp, Michael Jordan, all kinds of Athletes and Celebs who had these lavish weddings with these gorgeous Woman, only to end up paying outlandish child support cost every month and paying their wives Millions in Alimony. Women were put on this Earth to be a Man's Helpmeet, but they will Help MEET a Man's demise too if a Man doesn't treat her right! Woman are BLESSED, so if you screw over a BLESSED WOMAN, pretty much it's going to ruin a Man's Blessings. BUT, if you BLESS a Woman, the Glory of God can and will come upon a Man's life. Even if a Woman TRIES to do a Man wrong, he can't be brought down if he treated her with love and respect. That's the thing too, a Man's love for a Woman can help him get even more blessed, even if she isn't there to help bless him! We gotta take care of our Women WAY BETTER Fellas! Our making and breaking in life a lot of times comes from how we TREAT the Blessings that God has given us...OUR WOMEN!

I Love You Today...I Hate You Tomorrow! Why Is It So Hard For Millennials To DATE?


Good Morning Everyone! It is the VERY MIDDLE OF JULY! Sorry for my short Hiatus! I was on Vacation last week and got a SURPRISE vacation day yesterday, as our Power at my college was out, so I ended up CHILLIN ALL DAY! I LOVE IT! I hope that everyone is really thinking about the rest of 2015 and that are you on track to accomplishing the things you have set out to do in your life. THINGS HAPPEN, we all know that. Just know that you can turn around ANY SITUATION with the help of God. Don't let things of your past hold you back from a prosperous future! GOD IS WITH YOU! Remember that and everything will be alright as you move forward to accomplish your dreams! God bless everyone on today! Your Future Is NOW! GO FOR IT! Watch God Take Care Of YOU!!

I hear from a lot of people, especially 20 somethings that Dating Today SUCKS! ANNNNND, they are RIGHT! If you are married or in a long term relationship, if they are good too you, DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO WORK THAT RELATIONSHIP OUT! Don't let ANYTHING or ANYONE break you up because you don't want to be out here Dating Bruh! It's not that it's even HARD, because I don't believe that Love is hard. It's that people DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY WANT! They say that they do one day, and then the next day, it's like a total 180 turn around. "Well, I thought I liked you, but then I hung out with you, and I realized that I didn't so, we're done!" WHAT?!?! I feel NO ONE, and I mean, no other group of people does this better than the Millennials today. Millennials are young people born from the early to mid 80's to the late 1990's I say. So, people who are JUST about to reach the age of 30 and down to people who are JUST reaching College now, YEAH, those are Millennials. The kids who pretty much knew the Power Rangers, but REALLY were into Pokemon. THOSE FOLKS! So why is it SO DIFFICULT for Millennials to date today? Especially for someone like me who was on the back end of Generation X and have tried to date Millennials...trust me, do it at your OWN RISK! 
Here are some reasons I feel Millennials are having SO MANY DATING ISSUES!


1. OPTIONS: 
When you look around into Dating, during these Millennial growing up years, the Internet and Social Media hit its BOOM TIME! So, back in the days, when the only way you could date is if you WENT OUTSIDE and went places to meet people, today it's just as simple as sitting on your couch & clicking some buttons. Not even getting on Dating Sites, you can just be on Facebook or Twitter and connect with 1,000's of people all day, every day. And don't look GOOD... SHOOOOOT, you will ALWAYS have Fans, Followers, Friends, WHATEVER you want to call them trying to get your attention! If the ONE you're with or want to be with acts up, all you have to do is log in and there are 5-10 other people there to give you all the love and attention you want! PLUS, this is the Generation of you can date WHOEVER YOU WANT! So now, people are dating Men AND Women, making those options even greater and trust issues even more prevalent! 


2. LOCATION:
Sure, these days all you have to do is get on your phone or computer's internet and love is a possible DM away, but then comes the issue of WHERE love is. A lot of times, if you lived in a City long enough, every City has about 2 Degrees of Separation. What do you mean Professor JT? I'M GLAD YOU ASKED! You meet someone NEW, you two are from the same city and you two decide to go on your FIRST DATE or have your FIRST REAL Phone coversation. So you start asking each other about each other. What HS/Colleges you went to, what side of town you grew up on, what church you grew up at? SO NOW, you start to think once you get these answers "Huh, I know someone FROM THERE!" Come to find out after a few minutes of talking, you have just met a friend from HS's cousin! SO NOW, you don't even want to talk to them because that friend from HS was CRAZY! Pretty soon, you realize everyone in your City knows everyone else, so now you just stop dating locals. So, you look online and start to connect with people, but it seems like ALL THE GOOD ONES LIVE A MILLION MILES AWAY! You're on the East Coast, and your Love lives in Cali. You're in Canada, and the one you're diggin lives in Texas! You give it a SHOT, try to get FLOWN OUT or hit up a bus and after a while, Millennials are too spoiled and don't have the patience to wait every 2-3 months to see Bae. So, someone cheats or calls it off because they don't see them enough and neither person wants to MOVE for the other person. It's a constant love struggle of when will LOVE COME THEIR WAY!


3. STABILITY:
Baby Boomers GOT IT. I even think Generation X folks GOT IT! One thing I see Millennials struggle with more than ANYTHING...IS STABILITY. A lot of Millennials grew up in the Generation of FAST MONEY! The "Bling Bling", make these beats, go play ball, technology start ups. Everything is about GET IT DONE FAST with Millennials. Not a lot of "Stack Now, Play Later." It's a definitely a lot of "I WANT ALL & I WANT IT NOW!" So, when it comes to dating and relationships, a lot of Millennials want someone who has it all together, even if THEY themselves do not have it all together. It's a lot of "Give me a shot, I'm getting myself together, I got this BIG DEAL about to come in." Then, those people say "I want a mate who has THIS, THIS, AND THIS!" It's a lot of STANDARDS that Millennials want met, but they don't necessarily have them met for themselves. A lot of, "I have 2 kids, but I want someone with NO KIDS!" Also the "I need someone BALLIN, home, car, good job, making good money!" While they are still living at home and don't have any real plans going on for themselves. A lot of Double Standards when it comes to Stability and Millennials. A lot of "My money, is my money and YOUR MONEY is MY MONEY" types. AND DON'T LOSE YOUR STABILITY! Hold you down...PLEASE! A lot of times they are ON TO THE NEXT ONE and gone on the first thing SMOKIN if you don't keep your BALLIN UP!


4: WANT
If you talk to a Millennial today, a lot of their WANTS in a Mate are VERY SUPERFICIAL! "Oooo, I want someone with muscles, nice car, nice home, make a lot of money!" "MANNN, I need a chick with a fat booty, big tits, knows how to cook and clean!" A lot of times, there isn't much thought into how MATURE/CRAZY a person may be. At times it's because some Millennials feel AS LONG as they are MY TYPE or what I like, I can deal with it. THEN, when they GET their type, they don't ask the hard questions about what TYPE of person that is. So, they may LOOK the way that they want, but they mistreat them, are bad with money, cheat on them, all kinds of crazy stuff. SO THEN, their TYPE SHIFTS. Now, that TYPE of person they were so head over heels for, they don't want ANYONE like that to come their way! "I'm done with anyone LIGHTSKIN!" Just because ONE PERSON who was lightskin, WHO THEY CHOSE, screwed them over. There are some Millennials who get to 25, even 22 years old and they are already DONE WITH LOVE! It's important that people realize a lot of us NEVER get who we REALLY wanted and if we do, it comes with a huge price! So next time you are around a Millennial, ask them "What do you REALLY WANT?" If you get an "I don't know..." from them, You might want to stay FAR AWAY FROM THEM! THEY'RE NOT READY FOR LOVE!

It's International #CUTPEOPLEOFF Day! Get Rid Of Burdens & Welcome In Your Blessings!


Good Morning Everyone! HAPPY JULY! So many of us are READY for this 4th of July Weekend and I truly hope that you are! We're 6 months into the year, what do you have LEFT for the last 6 months? These past 6 months for me of 2015 have been pretty amazing thank God. June was a LITTLE BIT of a struggle, no lie. I just know it truly has to be rough sometimes before it gets really good! I'm taking it all in stride because the doors I've seen God open up for me in the last few months and even days has been nothing short of a Miracle! I know where God has brought me from, and it's been a MIGHTY long way. I want to encourage everyone to keep your heads up high! No matter what it looks like NOW, keep the FAITH, IT WILL GET BETTER! God bless everyone on today and know that GOD has so much in store for you! And Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian Readers!


So, a couple years ago, I started my OWN DAY for July 1st as National #CUTPEOPLEOFF Day, which has now turned into International #CUTPEOPLEOFF Day. What is important in life next to what you do, is the company you keep. A lot of us honestly, are keeping the WRONG PEOPLE around us. We sit back and wonder WHY we can't move forward in our lives and a lot of times the common denominator is the people around us. Sometimes the road to success can be a lonely one, but sometimes as well, you can't make it to the top and carry everyone with you! I picked July 1st because it's the very middle of the year. It's been 6 months of 2015 and you have to start to do inventory on your life. Ask yourself "Am I where I wanted to be when January 1st hit this year?" If you are saying "NO" to this question, now is time to ask yourself "WHY NOT?" If you look around you, who is REALLY standing by you and inspiring you to be a better person in your life? That is what International #CUTPEOPLEOFF Day is about. You, Me, And Millions of other people getting rid of the people in our lives who aren't trying to help us be successful or prosper to be better.



It's not easy cutting off people that we care for and love. It's just that sometimes relationships have run their course and we need to be honest about that time running out. We try to hold onto people for so long, not realizing that relationships we're actually trying to hold on too, could be hurting us a lot more than draining us. Think about holding on to a rope too long or a pot that's hot. You want to hold on too it, but you have to realize that holding on to either for too long, is starting to do YOU more harm just by holding on. That's how we are with some of our relationships. We don't want to hurt anything, but we don't realize by continuing to hold on to that relationship, we're actually hurting ourselves. This friend that always needs us but is never there for us when we need them. That family member who is always asking for money. Even that Ex or Current Boo who looks great but isn't great for you at all. Finally, that Side Piece that won't let you prosper with anyone else because you can't seem to get rid of them! You have supported folks with your time, energy, resources, and they can't even THINK about, more or less do the same things for YOU? IT'S TIME TO LET ALL THOSE PEOPLE GO! You can love them, but just love them from a VERY FAR DISTANCE! It's time to get free of the headaches that are a lot of times our so-called friends and family. YOU CAN DO IT! Sometimes it's erasing numbers or not even answering phone calls or text messages AT ALL! Let Them Miss You! You don't always have to be there for people who aren't there for you! BE YOUR OWN SUPERHERO! It's time to be BETTER than you have been in a very long time. Send that message or make that phone call and say, "I'm sorry, but I have to move on!" BE BETTER TODAY! Prayers out to all my Readers! If you want better, sometimes it takes a little cutting people off to move forward into your BETTER PLACE!

Are Women Chasing A GHOST? The Woman's Search For Her Husband


Good Morning Everyone! It's Summer...BUT it still feels like SPRING?!? Cool Temperatures, Rainy Days! OH WELL! I'll take it! Hold off on the heat and running my Air Conditioning for as LONG as we can! I hope everyone is geared up and ready for an AMAZING 4th of July weekend that is up and coming! GO FOR IT! I don't know what that means but I feel that in my Spirit for someone. Make July the MONTH YOU GO FOR IT! Your Dreams, Your Passions, Your Heart's Greatest Desires! Put God First! Go For Your Dreams! Watch God Give You The Desires Of Your HEART! God Bless Everyone On Today!

I like to ask the TOUGH QUESTIONS when it comes to dating. One question I like to ask from time to time to Women is "What if you don't get married?" I think that this is something a lot of Women don't EVER think is going to happen to them. What do you mean Professor? WELL, I'm glad that you asked! A lot of Women have a dream of this PERFECT GUY for them! NOW, lets be 100% honest, because I am an honest blog writer. 9 out of 10 Women probably NEVER get their envisioned PERFECT GUY! Even if they DO, there is STILL something wrong with him to a point a Woman probably needs to get rid of him before he drives her CRAZY! So, if a Woman does get married, there is a high chance in some areas, some things she had to settle for. He might not be the HEIGHT she wanted, she got dark skin, she prefers light skin. She wanted a Thug and got a Nerd. Either way, SHE GOT HER MAN! So, what about the Millions of other Women who are Single out there? Will they ever get A MAN PERIOD? Some Women are so determined to find love, that they will make ever effort they can to go get a Man. Forget that Man meeting her half way. OH NO! If he even shows a LITTLE BIT of interest, that Woman will travel the WORLD to get to him! He may be looking at her likes she's CRAZY! "WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!?!" he may say. Is the effort from the Woman ever WORTH IT? How many Women you know have got all out of their character to go see about a Man? DID IT WORK? Are we too the point where a lot of these Woman are honestly making all these efforts FOR NOTHING? Are Women chasing A GHOST who they think could be their Husband one day?


I want to see every Woman get the desire of her heart. We do have to be realistic to the point of if a Woman is not flexible in what she wants or the type of Man she could be with, then she might be looking for a needle in a haystack. It hurts really bad to see a Woman go to the ends of the Earth for a Man who can't even put his phone down off Social Media and texting long enough to walk out the front door to see about her. LADIES...MARRIAGE MAY NOT HAPPEN FOR YOU! Some Woman want that MAN, and Family, and BIG WEDDING for all her friends to be in SO BAD, they'll do whatever it takes to get a Man to make it all happen. If a Man is WORTH IT, SURE, GO FOR HIM! Now, I'm not saying get down on one knee and propose! BUT, put the best YOU out there and if it's meant to be between you two, then it will happen. There are a lot of scheming Men out here Ladies, you all have to be VERY CAREFUL! Dudes that will talk a big game behind phone and computer screens, but it's a totally different story when you see and meet them in person. I try to tell EVERY WOMAN...DO YOUR RESEARCH ON THE MAN YOU WANT TO BE WITH! Ask the hard questions EARLY! You have to realize, you don't want to be trying to start a life with a person that has a whole another life with another Woman. 

And Finally, LADIES, if you don't get married, IT'S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD! You have to be flexible! You might have to date a Man outside of your race. You may want Micheal Ealy...but is there anything wrong with having a David Beckham? Plus, GET OUT MORE! Get off the internet and hit up your city scene a bit! Even with that, YOU MIGHT HAVE TO SET UP THAT ONLINE DATING ACCOUNT! See what is out there every way that you can Ladies! Just don't chase ANY MAN! Pursue...YES! Chase...NO! Know that you are Queens and KINGS GO AFTER QUEENS! Not the other way around! Don't subject yourselves to humiliation Ladies trying to chase a GHOST who you already have considered to be your husband in your minds. Enjoy your LIVES, make your MONEY, take care of your COMMUNITIES AND CHILDREN. Know a Good Man always finds a Woman's Work and Worth SEXY! READ...SHARE...LOVE! - PROFESSOR JT

A GREAT FRIDAY MESSAGE: WE ALL HAVE TO APPRECIATE LIFE MORE!


Good Morning! It's Friday and I'm so glad it is! Another great week coming to the end and all is truly well. Things could be a whole lot worse you know, but everything is alright. Whatever you're going through, know that with just a little bit more faith, we can make it through anything! God bless everyone on today. Tomorrow is not promised to none of us! Lets make sure that every single day of our lives is lived sweeter than the day before!

I wake up everyday and say "Thank You Jesus" as I roll out of bed. Some days it's easier than others to get out of bed. It's just the fact that I even woke up that I have to thank Jesus to see another day. See, I know where all God has brought me from. I know as well that there are some things God protected me from that I'll never even realize or understand. God has been just that Good to me. I truly live with a Thankful  Spirit more and more as I get older. You see, we all aren't born with college degrees, good families and friends, the opportunities to have great jobs and careers, and to live in nice homes in nice neighborhoods. YEAH, we may have all of that NOW, but for some of us, WE KNOW FOR A FACT that life at one point and time wasn't always this good. You see, I've been there. I've seen some of the lowest days of my life before. Days where there was little to no food in my Dad's apartment when I stayed with him, while I was working part time at JC Penney. Days when my money was so low, I can remember wanting to get a $1.00 Cheeseburger from McDonalds and didn't even have a dollar on me or barely in my bank account to spare to do it. Days when I was sleeping on people from church's apartment floor in tears because I couldn't believe that not even my Bachelors and Masters could get me a job at that point in my life where I could make enough money to have my own spot. See my friends...I'VE BEEN THERE! That's why I stay humble and thankful to God for all that I have today, because He's brought me from a mighty long way. I'm truly blessed to be where I am today.

I love reading the entire book of Psalms because in the beginning half of the book were so many "THANKFUL" chapters from King David to God. David thanked God for how he helped him conquer so many battles, whether in war or even internally. David truly had so much to be thankful for because God brought him a mighty long way. We have to all appreciate the life that we have so much more. YES, we're going to have some truly rough days at times which we will complain about and wonder what is going on? But one of my favorite gospels songs says, "All of my Good days, out weigh my bad days, I won't complain." It's a good time to be alive today, because so many people are gone for all kinds of amazingly crazy reasons. Shootings, Rare Diseases, Murders, Stabbings, Rapes, Car Accidents. All kinds of things can happen to us EVERY SINGLE DAY...BUT GOD! God truly is a KEEPER! He's kept us from so many things in our lives that could have took us out of here. It's even crazy how the things we put OURSELVES IN, God even got us out of those situations alright! That's how amazing Jesus is! We truly have a lot to be thankful for! We have to appreciate our lives, even if we're not where we want to be in life right now. After a while, with a lot faith, humbleness, and patience, things will work out for our good. God Bless! Stay focused, Stay Blessed, know that with you being appreciative, God will bless you even more and turn every situation around!

FELLAS...there is a Woman we've was told YEARS AGO to watch out for from Memphis Bleek, Jay-Z, and Missy Elliot in the SONG..."IS THAT YO CHICK." You know who this chick is. You see her and her friends out and about. They can be anywhere from where your career is, to the church, to the club. This Woman we call...THE "BOUGIE BROKE" CHICK! NOW, LADIES, if you're reading THIS...this blog may not be for you. This is for my FELLAS! FELLAS, I know these Bougie Broke Chicks are on the prowl this summer. Looking for who they are going to either curve or pounce on! WATCH OUT FOR THEM FELLAS! Professor JT today is going to break down how you can recognize a Bougie Broke Chick and STAY FAR AWAY FROM HER!

Displaying 20150624_085248-1.jpg

HER DRESS: The Bougie Broke Chick CAN DRESS NICE...when she wants too! She can BRING IT! COME WITH IT! That's how she gets US Men! OH, she has clothes...TOO MANY OF THEM! SHOES TOO! You know what she'll always tell you Fellas...SHE HAS NOTHING TO WEAR! She doesn't have a lot of EXPENSIVE STUFF, maybe one really nice/expensive handbag or pair of shoes that she breaks out on special occasions. She just has a lot of pieces that look nice but didn't cost her a lot of money. She is the QUEEN OF THE DEAL OR CLEARANCE RACK! And if she doesn't want it or feels bad about spending so much on it, IT'S GOING RIGHT BACK TO THE STORE! She'll dress for who and what she wants to get, when she wants to get it. 
WATCH OUT FELLAS!


HER JOB: The Bougie Broke Chick Fellas for the most part has a job...well, sometimes. The Question always is how long is she going to STAY at that job? She is usually always looking for another gig. Hardly ever satisfied where she is at and has no problem telling people how much she cant STAND her job. She probably is a career college student. Always talking about going to get more education to change her career, but usually has degrees she's barely using at all. She usually always has a complaint about her workload, co-workers, or boss and will tell you about it every...single...freakin...day! BRUH!!


HER FINANCES: The Bougie Broke Chick Fellas Money...IS ALWAYS FUNNY! She'll let you spend your money on her LONG BEFORE she thinks about coming out of pocket for herself as long as she can. She might be staying with people or her parents, credit isn't never really that good, something like a car or apartment bought by or in her family's name, paying too much on bills every month that keep her broke. Whatever it may be, she always needs MORE MONEY! A lot of times when she gets money, it's not spent on things that she actually NEEDS, more on stuff she WANTS. So then when the money is gone, she realizes she is broke again and it's back to the dreaded "Hustle." Whether it's do hair, sell Mary Kay or Avon, selling insurance, or Baby Sitting, every Bougie Broke Chick has some type of Side Hustle to keep extra money in her pocket! OH, and Fellas, trust and believe, if YOU can't help a Bougie Broke Chick out Financially, she has some other Man somewhere that she can bat her eyes too that will give her what she needs.


HER RELATIONSHIPS WITH MEN: The Bougie Broke Chick usually is NEVER satisfied with it comes to a Man. SOMETHING is always WRONG! Whether if he's TOO NICE, she's with someone but always checking up on him because she thinks he's a cheater, has Dudes but wants one Guy she can't have. IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING! The Bougie Black Chick loves to CURVE! She gets a KICK out of it! Problem is, she'll curve the right guys for her and always end up with a JERK! THEN, when she gives a Good Guy a chance, HE'S BORING or not THUG/ROUGH enough for her. She's a Good Girl by Nature, but can't leave the Bad Boys alone, who don't end up doing nothing but wrecking her life, credit, and a lot of times leaving her to be a Single Mom and one who can't trust Men anymore. The Bougie Broke Chick is a CLASSIC Overthinker. From the first date with a Guy, she's trying to FIGURE A MAN OUT! "What is he about?" "What does he want with me?" "Is he going to hurt, use, or abuse me?" DANG CHICK, we just got on a date & haven't even ordered drinks yet! 

FELLAS...you gotta watch out of the Bougie Broke Chick, she's out to get what SHE WANTS and you don't want to be a VICTIM!

So For Black People And America after the #CharlestonShootings...WHAT NOW?!?!



Good Morning Everyone! I pray that everyone has an incredible Tuesday as GREAT THINGS are in store for God's People! It's not going to come easy and may take a little pain. But in the end, if you HOLD ON, it will be all worth it! God bless everyone on today! Tomorrow isn't promised to none of us, let's make TODAY GREAT!

His Name... Dylann Storm Roof. Right now, after another heinous racial attack on Black People, he is the face of Terrorism. This past weekend, I went to go see Kevin Hart's "What Now" tour. He put some answers to some questions of his fans and critics on to what is now for his career after all he has done. As I watched and laughed at the show, I thought about all the Black People in America and what we have all been through in the last few years. Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, the Baltimore Riots. Now, we have the Charleston Shooting of a Black Church, where 9 people were murdered by a young man who truly wanted to start a Race War. See, the thing is, Dylann Roof wasn't born to hate Black People, he was TAUGHT to hate Black People. Which means one very sick and twisted thing...America is still creating a racist society. After all we have overcome as a people...there is still some bitter hatred for other races in this World. I got back on Twitter last week and immediately after this horrible incident, I'm praying and trying to calm down my people, because they are tired of this. Do you know Barack Obama has had to address the Nation after a brutal situation 14 times now in his Presidency? 14 TIMES! How many times does a President have to address families, communities, the United States of America that we need to STOP THIS!?! So that question that I have for Black People and America...WHAT NOW?!?!


What in the World needs to be done to bring change to this Nation that these horrible crimes quit happening? Lets state some FLAT OUT FACTS...there are some people in this Nation who just do not like other people! Whether it's men not liking Women, Blacks not like Whites, Whites not liking Minorities...all this HATE NEEDS TOO STOP! The US needs better Gun Laws and Regulations. Too many firearms are in the hands of the WRONG PEOPLE and it's too easy to get a gun these days. Another issue that needs to be brought up, EVERY STATE NEEDS RACE RELATED LAWS PROTECTING CITIZENS AGAINST RACE CRIMES! It makes no sense that this young man has come forward and SAID he tried to start a race war but there are no Racial Profiling and Hate Crime Laws in South Carolina. YES, I want them to remove the Confederate Flag from EVERYTHING it's on and on top of, but we need to do more than just remove that symbol of Hate! We need to keep a better eye on who is in our Government Systems and Police Departments. It all didn't have to come to this! What are WE as a people going to do to make sure this doesn't happen ever again? One of the people shot and killed in that Charleston Shooting, was the Grandmother of one of my Twitter Friends I follow. This is hitting WAY too close to home! How many more people have to be buried before we put down the Politics and get something DONE where people can feel safe walking down the street, going into stores, EVEN going to church now? It's all gone too far and if we don't do something NOW as a People of this Great Nation, my friends, we just might only be at the tip of the iceberg because it's some sick people who keep trying to one up each other. These people want to go down in history of doing some of the most sick things to God's people. We have to take ACTION! We have to stand up for our people RIGHT NOW because it sadly looks like things keep on getting WORST!

Tell The TRUTH...GIVE HIM A RING! The Warriors are NBA Champs Because of MARK JACKSON!




GOOD MORNING EVERYONE! I hope that everyone is have a great start to their Wednesday! Everyone just needs to stay focused, stay calm, and go for your dreams! Eyes haven't seen, Ears haven't heard...Great Things Are In Store For YOU! God bless everyone on today and know that tomorrow isn't promised to any of us. 
MAKE TODAY GREAT! 

The New NBA Champions are the Golden State Warriors. Congrats to them! I have to give them props and credit where it's due. They worked their way through the Western Conference with an amazing record and even beat "The Best Player In The World" for the NBA Title. It's all well and good, but lets tell the REAL TRUTH about who REALLY got the Golden State Warriors to Championship Status. It was Coach Mark Jackson! That Ol Pacers Baller who use to drop tear drop shots, cross his arms, and shimmy down court after making shots. That guy who took a Skinny Kid & helped make him MVP of the NBA. That guy who took a kid who hit a bump in the road with a Drug Charge at Washington State (Clay Thompson) & took a Reckless, Arrogant Big 10, Michigan State Baller (Draymond Green) & made them stars in the NBA. See the thing is...no one really thought these guys would be ANYTHING IN THE NBA...BUT MARK JACKSON! And once they became SOMETHING GREAT...guess who didn't end up wanting the Coach...The Warriors Organization! You see, how I feel is this...The Warriors Organization didn't WANT Mark Jackson to bring home that Title. Just like a few years ago, how Notre Dame Football didn't want Ty Willingham to take Notre Dame to the BCS Title, so they brought in Charlie Weiss and then Brian Kelly. Also just like how the Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't want Tony Dungy to win a Title, so they brought in "Chuckie" AKA John Gruden, who won it a year after Tony was fired. See, this is isn't the first time a Coach has gotten the SHAFT right before a Title Run by his Former team. 


This is from Warriors Co-Owner Joe Lacob on why Mark Jackson was fired last year:
"While crediting Jackson for changing the Warriors' culture, Lacob said he didn't think the team "could be great" without removing a coach he characterized as unwilling to hire better assistants and disliked by many in the organization."

I remember an old Coach named Bobby Knight from back in the day with the Indiana Hoosiers. All that this Man put that University through and they STILL held on to him. WHY...because he was a WINNER! See, some places will put up with you when others won't. Regardless if you are winning or not, the letting go of Mark Jackson was WAY MORE ABOUT other things than we all will really ever know about. I have to give Mark Jackson so much props throughout this whole process because not only did he have to WATCH his former team that he coached win the NBA Championship that he helped gel and mold together, but ABC gave him a Front Row Seat to EVERY GAME! There were a couple times during his commentary of the NBA Playoffs and Finals where he mentioned working with certain Warriors players to shape their game to where it was at an NBA Top Caliber level. I know it was eating at him to watch HIS TEAM work that hard to make it all the way to the Title. That was HIS CHAMPIONSHIP! YES, he deserves a Championship Ring from the Warriors Organization! Hopefully someone gives Mark Jackson another shot at an NBA Coaching position, just like Tony Dungy got one and won him an NFL Title with the Indianapolis Colts. Lets give credit where it's due FOLKS! Mark Jackson put the team together and Steve Kerr got all the Glory for it! Wasn't he suppose to be coaching the New York KNICKS?!??! Man oh Man! Life is crazy ain't it?
