  1. Wow, thanks for sharing so many great links.

  2. […] with some of his positions, posts, or tweets. I encourage you to follow him on social media, and here are two of my favorite Baker […]

  3. Jueseppi…I’m very appreciative of all the work you’ve done here@Black History…Remarkable amount of info here..Just getting started on checking out a bit more of your page..I began with the Black History tab. I like..Alot. I thank you

    • I add to it every February, I’d add more during the year but everytime you edit the tab you have to space everything all over again or it is bunched up on top on each other. Thats a major complaint I have against WP. It’s difficult to edit post. It was fun to compile. Thank you for appreciating this too.

      • Virtual High 5^ and a Fist Bump 2..Hugs!

      • just 2 hugs? ;-)

      • My hugs are addictive so I’ve got to ration them out , lol! But for you I could spare one more..

      • It’s OK, I don’t have an addictive character.

      • Great comeback answer! Hope you’re having a relaxing awesome Sunday on that end..

      • I am bored, no sports to speak of that interest me, TV sucks butt, and computer is boring, no new “thing” to post about, maybe it’s nap time?

      • Ahhh there is something to be said for knowing how to amuse ones self my friend..You’ve yet to answer the question I asked you yesterday..What do passtime do you enjoy? Or what do you do for fun? Any hobbies? Do you write poetry? I know you read it..

      • I’ll save that answer for when we speak to one another on the telephone. Gotta save some interesting topics for those conversations. ;-)

      • Trust me I never run out of topics to talk converse about..There are only 3 times that I am quiet..Can you guess what those 3 times are?

      • Sleeping, shitting & when your father is speaking.

      • Lolllll I hadn’t considered 2 of those..So now you’ve messed UP my list of 3!

      • :mrgreen:

      • OMG don’t print that last one about sex..I keep forgetting this is on your blog page! I keep using this as a chat with you..See what you get me into?

      • Yes I see, it is all my fault, I’m soooo bad. :lol:

      • IF someone were to ask you to name one nice quality about yourself …what would you say that is?

      • I have no nice qualities.

      • I don’t believe that. And with good reason…You can be very sweet when you want to be. And patient. And empathetic. I’ve seen it in your posts and what you choose to re-blog

      • Believe it.

      • So just so I’m clear..You don’t think you’re a good person Jueseppi? And once you answer that then this is my next question..Why then would you make ALL of the effort you DO to enlighten, inform and make the world a better place..I’ve noticed it! And even in a text exchange yesterday, to me, you said you hoped you contributed to making the world a better place..Wouldn’t that make you a good person with a good heart? Some folks honestly don’t give a good phuck about making the world better! Or brighter! Some folks are just downright mean and evil…

      • I’m not a good person Ms. Berna. I know me better than you do. Informing, enlightening and wanting a better world does not make one a good person. A man can weigh 5000 lbs and want to be thin, wanting to be thin doesn’t make him thin. ;-)

      • I don’t quite know how to process this or digest it. But I will try. I’ve never heard a person say that about themselves.

      • People tend to never tell the truth about themselves OR to themselves.

      • It is part of being human..Nevertheless I could go deeper into your comment about not being a good person..But I won’t for now. I also would like to save some good stuff for when we verbally converse

      • I can promise you this much I will never knowingly tell you a lie. I make that promise to all of my friends. And there isn’t a question you can ask me that I won’t answer honestly. Ever

      • Thats a good policy to have for your friends. I lie daily to those who are not my friends.

      • :mrgreen:

      • AND when we talk I’ll explain the whys of that last comment I made..I hit submit too fast & forgot to add this part . OMG you’re working the heck out of my fingers

      • Nothing easy is worth having, right…. ;-)

      • That is what someone said. I just repeated it. I have no clue nor evidence. Because truth be told most things have come easy to me. Very good things. Some would say I’ve been lucky. I say I’ve been blessed and well loved. I don’t believe in luck

      • OK

      • Maybe I won’t be in Iowa when you scream.

      • Well…where ever you are you’ll hear me scream. Smarty pants!

      • There is a distinct possibility I will be inside you making you scream….one way or another. And you have no idea what those ways or another can be.

        Close your mouth, your tongue might fall out.

      • caught me offguard but I know I can think of a good comeback response..give me a minute

      • Uh Huh.

      • I still can’t think of a good comeback..Still thinking. I am not accustomed to being stumped by a guy…so I will figure out an answer. Just got back to my laptop but it was on my mind

      • Can you cook and if so can you cook well?

      • I am from New Orleans originally..My parents were born and raised there..And then my Dad took us all over the world in the Air Force for 25 years..Simply said of course I can cook..Everything we do in New Orleans is centered around food..True Southern Hospitality! Can’t walk into one of our homes without being fed. And being fed excellent seasoned food; never bland. Can take a person out of New Orleans but you can’t take the New Orleans out of a person..

      • First of all it isn’t possible to make that happen one way or another..Unless they’ve created some new stuff about sex in the past 3 yrs since I’ve been out of the loop..that would require physical contact..there is no other way. 2nd if you have to save topics for an actual conversation; then that can’t happen. I like a mutual flowing conversation…And for it to flow naturally..I’d not want someone to be thinking about saving up topics to chat about verbally..I am a conversationalist. I can speak on any topic. Anywhere I can hold my own…and getting to a point of making me scream would require the same ability.

      • Then never mind.

      • You give up to easily..I was just going to ask you how that was possible. Why you give up so easily? You’re not a believer in there are things worth the effort? Or do you prefer things to come easy ? Surprise me by answering that honestly; don’t sugar coat it either

      • I’m not one to work harder when working smarter will suffice.

      • Good comeback!

      • :oops:

      • oh, please don’t post that last response either

      • Which last response?

      • Lolll I have NO clue. Just got back to my laptop..Lawd, one of us needs to keep up. I have a remarkable memory too. I must be slipping

      • :lol: I just woke up from a nap.

      • I probably should’ve taken one hours ago..Been up since O’dark thirty..But I had alot of reading to do today after church..Alot! My eldest son was asked to write a chapter for a literacy book! So I got to read the final proof that just came in from the publisher..I can’t tell you how proud I am of HIM Jueseppi..OMG..From such humble beginnings when it was just he and I..And now he’ll be the first in our family to get his Doctorate. I am in awe of his accomplishments and he is so humble. I dig that & just happy he is reaching his goals. He has worked hard. but enough of that. I hope you feel well rested…Its still Sunday! Won’t that mess your sleep up for tonight?

      • Give my congratulations to your son and when it is published, please make me aware of it and how to get a copy to read. I’m never one who worries about sleeping on a schedule. I just sleep when it comes.

      • The book is very near publication..He’ll get a few copies as a contributor but the rest the publisher will see..His PHD is in Higher Education with a minor in Outreach to Under-Represented Students(otherwise known as Blacks & Latinos) He is making a progressive difference in the world; gone farther than I ever did. He carried forward the dream I had when I first left home …Progress. Anyways enough of that..The name of the book is ‘ STEM Models of Success: Programs, Policies, and Practices in the Community College’,..and I’ll let you know when it prints. I’m going to send him the link to your blog..He’d love IT

      • Thats an honor, thank you much. I’d love to read his chapter.

      • I don’t think you understand..YOU honor us also Juseppi..I know you’ve got mixed heritage..I saw somewhere(I told you I don’t forget much…) you broke it down by 1/4ths..But primarily appears you identify with Blackness..Alot of us are of mixed heritage..Just the mere fact I’ve descended from New Orleans it is clear I am also..New Orleans the birthplace of Jazz is also known for having been conquered by the Spanish & French..MOST of our dishes have French origins(Seafood Gumbo, Jambalya, Etoufee,) ..Called Creole due to French taking Black slaves involuntarity and creating mulato children..Many of my relatives are passe blanc..which in English means pass for White..However they chose NOT to pass for White..We are Black..I say all of this to say we’ve come along way; but have along way to go. I cried when Trayvon was murdered. I cried when Oscar Grant was murdered. I cried harder when the verdicts of their murderers was announced. I love ALL people..but I am so very proud of my heritage. And I make NO apologies for it. it will take people like you and me and my son and etc etc for progess to continue…Now that I’m an empty nester I’ve so much more time to do things. Major part of my life has been co-raising our sons. I was elated to run across your blog site..I saw the obamacrat nic when you commented on another page and found your blog..I’m elated when I see any progressive blog on here..And I am just getting started

      • I was a chef for 26 years after getting out of Uncle Sams employ and finishing college, I studied under the greatest chef & human being ever born, ….Justin Wilson. I know creole/cajun cuisine.

        You are a wonderful mom, woman and human being, from what I know and can see of you. Your greatest accomplishment to my mindset is being a mom who raised boys to adulthood and whom you can be proud of.

      • A second one word answer…..will there be a 3rd?

      • When we do converse? Sure hope you talk this much smack verbally!

      • ;-)

      • Lol, lol! Hmmmm so you only talk smack when you’re typing 120 wpm?

      • I was not even aware I was talking smack, is that close to being anything like talking trash or talking shit?

      • Lolll yep talking smack is a Berna’ism..which means a word or phrase I made up

      • Gotcha.

      • Fast study. Good

      • :-D

      • Here’s a twist on your question, tell me, if you can, what you imagine my passtimes are or what I do for fun/hobbies?

      • OOooo I like that…Now that is creative!..And you know I love creativity..But, wait let me think about it for a minute..I don’t want to suggest anything that would not seem manly or Alpha & make you angry…Make that 2 minutes cause you’re not an easy one to guess about..

      • U don’t have 2 worry about making me angry, I asked you this ?? with full knowledge you are answering with a limited experience of me.

        Do you even know what I look like?

      • Sort of..I couldn’t really see the picture clearly at all. All I know is you’re not White. And can’t tell if you’re capable of smiling because looks like you were growling in the picture..But as far as making out how you look couldn’t tell much..When you emailed me the other night? A picture came attached! Like the size of a tiny thumbnail..Very tiny and very not clear. I’m assuming you put one on your profile or something..I’ve been meaning to put one of me up on that gmail account ; but never got around to it. I only use that gmail account in connection with WordPress

        But now I’ve got to ask a question. Why would I need to know what you look like to have a text chat or answer questions you’ve asked?

      • Who said you needed to know what I look like? My ? was do you know what I look like.

      • You should know by now I am long winded. I should’ve just simply said NO I don’t know what you look like Jueseppi.

        And my remark behind that? I don’t care what you look like! You want to know why?

      • I’m not sure if I want to know why…..let me think about that one.

      • No need to be afraid of the answer. I don’t bite nor backbite. I’m going to tell you anyway..It doesn’t matter to me what you look like because the dialogue interests me..Especially due to your vast knowledge of Black History, our POTUS and politics..We’ve got similar interests; and I’ve learned from reading your site just in the short time frame I’ve known of you..And I’ve hardly even dug into all of the topics on your blog..I am intrigued by someone who puts forth that kind of effort and TIME about topics that are dear to me and my future sons..Our history and matters of importance about what is going on in our country and the world. So I care less what you look like it is your mind I find attractive…As I told you the other day I try not to question nor doubt things that feel good to me or that I’ve a good vibe about. My instincts are usually sharp..so regardless of whether you say you’ve no likeable qualities or not I’m intrigued. I can learn from you & that is good enough for me. I hadn’t even considered an actual verbal conversation with you until it came up today..And when or if you decide you can keep up with me conversating then I’m game

      • Oh I am no match for you when it comes to conversating….of that I am certain. 8-)

      • How do you know? So you’re not used to holding a conversation with a woman? Or you saying you don’t have a gift for gab as I do? I’m very comfy talking for a reason..I am my OWN best form of advertisement. But I am who I am..This is the thing..Quiet people make me nervous. Always wonder what the hell is on their minds! I mean seriously how can anyone NOT have anything on their mind to talk about enough to be considered quiet around other people? Ever heard of quiet people all of a sudden snapping the heck out? Well with folks, like me, who talk…don’t have that issue. Because I wear my feelings on my sleeve. I’ve NO poker face..and also because if I feel something I will find a way to express it TO the person..If they matter to me. If I don’t give a shit about the person; then I don’t bother. I just bail

      • Thats all good to know Ms. B, you are who you are and thats excellent, that you don’t allow anyone to change you. Now extend that same courtesy to others who are not exactly like you. Thats called an open mind. I don’t spill my guts about myself to anyone. The military taught to me be myself and myself is cautious and reserved when speaking about who I am and what I’m about, closely guarded am I, about me, and private. I decide who & what I reveal about me and to whom I reveal. Thats me in a nutshell. I just met you, don’t know who you are or what you are. I have real live enemies who hate me from my military days and from me running this Blog. I have humans who would love to see me dead or removed from doing what I love to do, which is blogging, but they comprehend that giving me a wide berth is best for their personal health.

        That said, I’m who I am as you are who you are. I like our conversation. I’ll never attempt to make you into who you are not because i accept you for you. Extend that to me as well.

      • Ouch! I had NO clue …And I let my curiosity go too far..I can assure you it and I am sincere. I meant nor mean any harm. I wouldn’t harm any living creature and I certainly want no one dead. I never laid eyes on your nic or your blog nor have I any knowledge of it prior to seeing your obamacrat nic on another blog that is on my faves list..I wish for God I could recall which one right now…I have a list of 130 plus fave blogs but I can find it and find your post and let you know the name so you’ll know I ran into you by accident. But I hear what you’re saying..and I am sorry that is your reality. I will not ask any more questions

      • You missed what I’m saying Ms. B. I don’t mind your questions nor was what i typed to you meant to effect an “ouch” response. I enjoy our chats and our exchanges, what I am saying is simply that any non-answer or what may appear to be not an answer of detail to a question you ask me today, may be answered in detail next week, ot the week after that, or tomorrow, as my instincts about you guide me…I hope I am understood.

        Ask me whatever you desire…if I can answer I will, and if I can’t, I won’t. ;-)

      • I may have missed what you’re saying..Mayhaps it is over my head ..I’ve no desires to ask anymore questions. I got caught up in the question/answer back & forth we were participating in. And yep, I understand , inasmuch, as I can understand what I can’t mentally process..or rather relate to. And thank you for the holiday well wishes & likewise

      • I’m going to call it a night..You reminded me of something with this line of thought. I trust far too easily..Offline its cool because I can see one’s body language & see the mirror of their soul through their eyes..But you’re right we don’t know each other. I can’t ride on a vibe I feel from a connection of writing text chats to you. I am an open book. I’ve paid in blood, sweat, tears to like who I am..I don’t know why your line of thought scares me now..I am very much speechless and I don’t want to say the wrong things. Again, I meant no harm & I apologize for the questions I asked or questioning your word. I was going to browse around for a while and read up on some things but I think it best for me to log off..Have a wonderful evening and nite nite Jueseppi

      • Sorry my honesty about me, hurt your feelings. Honesty has no concern for feelings, it’s what is honest, which sometimes is not what we want to hear. Enjoy your holiday.

      • No need to apologize .. You’re correct and I totally agree .. I had no business asking such questions of someone I don’t know . I had no business asking a question I wasn’t prepared for that type of answer .. A wise friend once advised me to never ask a question that I wasn’t prepared to hear any type of answer .. I usually heed his advice and for first time ever in all my 50 years I finally got an answer I’ve no experience to mentally process . I thank you for the lesson and thankful I learn quickly too . Never apologize for being honest no matter the cost ..

      • You just let me know when or if you’re ready to have a verbal chat & I’ll email you my cell number Mr . B.

      • I’ll do that Ms. B

      • You’ve got my curiosity at max peak so I look forward but I won’t anticipate it..That way if you do I’ll be pleasantly surprised

      • I usually do what I say.

      • Ahhhh, a one word answer from you. A first.

      • Here is the list of things I think you like for fun..Outside of writing, reading, & watching football

        1. Playing football. Since I noticed on your re-blog the other day you’re not even 55 yet; I assume you do some type of sport. Especially considering you were a Ranger; and they’re pretty fit.
        2. Hanging out with the fellas either playing cards or just kicking back /drinking or playing dominoes or chess or whatever…
        3. Movies..Actually getting out of the house and catching a good flick here & there
        4. Fishing or golf..For some reason I see you doing some type of activity which can be best done alone. And both of these would fit that definition

      • I only play golf now. Correct.
        I played football in college at Grambling. Correct (Sort of)
        I don’t like hangin with fellas. I’m much more comfortable with ladies. Wrong.
        I love cards & dominoes. Correct.
        I don’t dislike movies, I do dislike movie theaters. (Half correct)
        I love restaurants, the theater (Plays), the opera, dancing (Steppin), sporting events, scuba diving, and horses. I put myself thru college by playing pool.

      • Ahhh wowwww at least I wasn’t too far off the mark..I’m good! I’d not have guessed you like plays and the opera! Wowwww ..Can’t say I dig the opera…The shrill voices give me a headache! Matter of fact there is someone in our choir who SHOULD be in the Opera. OMG..I’m a Soprano and she is too..but when she starts hitting that shrill note??? I have to try to tone it out

  4. Wow, your page is extraordinary. You should do a Facebook for it, so your followers can discuss…

  5. This is truly magnificent. So much work and love went into this! Wonderful tribute!

  6. [...] Colored Museum, play on African American history: [...]

  7. Good afternoon Jueseppi. It is I, MrSculpty. The sculptor. AkA: creator of the Potus/Vpotus sculptures….I find your writing very good,in response to the not a writer comment you make. Very straight and to the Point. Almost humorous at times and very at others…. Being of a mult-iracial heritage, where many of my family members are black as well as white I’ve found it to be a bit of an at Home feeling here on the Obamacrat. Thank you for a major contribution to the arts. Very sincerily yours, MrSculpty

    • Mr. Munoz, I love your work. Absolutely amazing talent you have and the pieces on your site are magnificent. Thank you for the kind words of support. I too am of mixed heritage, 1/4th of Sicilian, (born in Marsala Sicily) Corsican, African & Pawnee Indian. A Heinz 57 variety if you will. Thank you for supporting POTUS Obama with your talents.

  8. Hey Juesepppi Are you African American? For some reason I did not think of people from Sicily being African American. I have a 1/2 black 1/2 white nephew. I am sure Barack Obama will be his role model. He is only 5 now. But I am glad he will know all things are possible in America. Even becoming President.

    • I am 1/4th Sicilian 1/4th Corsican 1/4th African & 1/4th Pawnee Indian, born in Marsala Sicily

  9. I love it, lots of historical info is just what the doctor ordered, too many of us are forgetting or more likely, never knew the glorious history of the African in America, let alone the remarkable history of the African in the world. Keep on telling it. I will too.

    • We have to tell it, we are the story/truth tellers of our past history. Thank you for your words of support.

  10. Here are some of mine:

    Be Who You Are and Say What You Feel Because Those Who Mind Don’t Matter and Those Who Matter Don’t Mind.~Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss)

    Learning is a lifetime process, but there comes a time when we must stop adding and start updating. ~Robert Brault

    There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.~Deepak Chopra

    • Ms. Joanne,
      I may borrow some of these if you don’t mind. Good to see you, and I hope you enjoy the weekend.

      • Absolutely–they aren’t mine. You have good weekend, too! Love you!

      • Joanne,
        The love is mutual…so is my respect and admiration for your way of thinking. I already added the quotes to the “quotes I like”. Ciao Bella.
