Web Designer Business Owner vs Nerd

Web Designer Business Owner vs Nerd

black_man_top_hatIn the United States, there are two different types of people, when you ask someone their opinion. There are those that actually own a business and then there are those that do not. This is the only major difference in the United States that matters. A business owner has a completely different perspective to things, that the casual person does not. The business owner has to answer to his clients. The business owner has to make sure that his product is nearly perfect. The business owner has to make sure that if his product leaves his hands, it will continue to perform as expected afterwards. A business owner cannot afford to create a product , that he guarantees, that falls apart.

This specifically applies to web design. I am a web designer. I have clients. I create web sites. I have to answer to clients. I cannot create a web site or web page, and have it completely break, a year later. This is opposed to a web design nerd. A web design nerd knows web design, but he doesn’t have to answer to anyone. He doesn’t create product. He doesn’t answer to clients. He doesn’t even care if in a years time, something he made breaks.

And, this is the big divide behind the new standard coming out in the HTML language.

For those of you not into web design, there is a new standard of HTML [ the programing language, web designers like me use to create web pages ] that is going to be the new standard, but in 2014.

Everyone is rushing to use the new HTML5 right NOW. But, when I go to a site that discusses the standardization process, they always talk about the “FEEDBACK” part. This part says that, after putting out a working set, designers, LIKE ME, can give them feedback and they will change it.

So the dilemma is, if I make a website today with current HTML5 settings, In a year, will the website be broken? Or do I just continue with HTML4 and make sure it is perfect. Why do I ask? Because HTML4 will still work in 2020. They are not going to build browsers that will ignore it.

Am I saying, I will never learn HTML5? No, not for a year at least. Other than stupid clients that have heard about HTML5 and requested it, who turned out to not be a client. Until all browsers support it and it is approved, I will not mess with HTML5.

The nerds can cheer about HTML5 all they want. They don’t have deadlines to meet, people to schmooze and products that have to be fail proof.

I find this is the great divide in our political system too. Those of us who make payroll  and know taxes, vs those of us who simply show up to work.

Does the Black Church, Keep Black Women Single

Does the Black Church, Keep Black Women Single

black church ladySeveral, many, YouTube videos and hundreds of articles are saying “the Black church is making, and keeping Black women single.” With a 70% female attendance, it is a very, on point, hypothesis.

My aunt tried to introduce me to a young lady. The entire family, her family, my aunt, that is, all went on and on about how good looking she was, and smart.

I was like, “can’t wait to meet her.”

So, one day, I’m at the house working and the girl calls. My aunt runs the phone out to me. So, I talked for all of 2 seconds, and the girl talked for about 15 minutes straight. AND, the entire time, it was about god.

Now, this was my first time ever talking to her, at all. I was a HUGE, MEGAHUGE turn off. And, she didn’t just talk about god. She told me about how she has turned her life to god, and is going on a missionary trip, for god, and on and on and on.

I’m like… OK, go date god, good luck with that.

I didn’t show up to the after church dinner they invited me to. And, never gave her a second thought.

I detest women, or even men, that “talk” about god. If you want to be a Christian, be a Christian. But, it’s not about talking. It’s about doing, being the best human you can be. Being an exemplary human, for the rest to see.

It was so annoying, talking to some girl, preaching. She didn’t have to talk about me, but god damn, talk about your likes and hobbies.

So does the Black church keep Black women single? Hell yes. OH, and if you think that is the only example I have, I have at least 100, personal experiences like that.

Black Middle Class: The Problem with Black Business Districts

Black Middle Class: The Problem with Black Business Districts

No Help From the Outside

black business conferenceThe very biggest problem, and one that is consistent, since Black man met white man, is that the white man insinuates himself into our affairs.

We as Black people have to understand and internalize that we are grown adults. We do not need anyone’s help. We don’t need white money. We don’t need white planning. We don’t need white expertise. We don’t need white advice. We don’t need white caring. We don’t need white outreach. We don’t need white set asides. We don’t need white intervention. We don’t need white coalition. We don’t need white professionals. We don’t need white financiers. We don’t need white economists. We don’t need anyone white.

Now, that goes DOUBLE for all other ethnic groups. Every god damned time Black people even hint at forming something, here come white people saying: no make it “minority” and include mexicans and asians. Yet, there is no Mexican “minority” district, nor asian “minority” district. We’re always told to include everyone else under our umbrella.

British Law Makers to Force Churches to Perform Gay Marriage

British Law Makers to Force Churches to Perform Gay Marriage

new world orderEuropean Court of Strasbourg declares that gay marriage is not a human right.

European law makers were taken aback, and did not know what to say. However, upon the insistence by the gay lobbyists, they declared they would proceed with making same-sex marriage a reality.

The court went on to say that even if they tried to pass a law to make a same-sex marriage, that no church would be required to perform a same-sex marriage. And, they said, there would be a double standard of straight marriage vs same-sex marriage.

GUESS WHAT THE EUROPEAN LAWMAKERS SAID TO THAT?

Black Middle Class: Promoting the Black Man in Our Community

Black Middle Class: Promoting the Black Man in Our Community

loving black coupleWith the rise of feminism, a lot of Black women have gotten swept away in the trash. Some Black women recognize that the talking points for the latest feminist movement, do not even apply to Black women. Those have a hard time convincing or making it clear to those that do. What they fail to realize at their base core, is that we are Black first, then divided by economics and then divided by sex. So before even approaching feminism, a Black woman has to wade through racism, and then wade through classicism, to get to the feminist agenda. Those Black women that get it, get it. It doesn’t take much to realize that it is all smoke and mirrors for Black folk. A Black woman in the feminist movement is just another number. There is nothing in the feminist movement for the Black woman, nor is it even beneficial to the Black woman. Except, it does one thing, pits the Black woman against the Black man. And, this is where most Black women wake up suddenly.

Black Middle Class:The Problem with Black Business Movements

Black Middle Class:The Problem with Black Business Movements

Black panel discussionThe Black Empowerment Project raised a very valid question, one that has yet to be responded to, nor answered by any of the Black economic movements. That question is how do we achieve Black economic independence? Now, the question suggests the answer. The answer is, by build Black economic intradependence and independence. But, all the Black economic movements completely fail to even formulate a plan to encourage Black economic independence.

Now, Dr. Claud Anderson, in his powernomics movement, had a very sensible idea, but it shared the same limitation as the Marcus Garvey movement, it had a singular focus in one product, albeit a very good one. Dr. Anderson wanted a vertical monopoly: fisheries, transportation, restaurants. Garvey wanted ships for transport and cargo.

Black Middle-Class: You Talk White?

Black Middle-Class: You Talk White?

Black All Boys SchoolWash ashore any African country and the citizens of that country will speak at least 5 different languages. Yet, in the U.S. Black lower-class think it is the height of cool to murder English, and insult any Black person that speaks real English. In fact, they will attempt to insult the Black person by saying, “you talk white.”

Let us explain something to the lower-class Blacks. You are not the epitome of what is Black. In fact, you are on the fringe of the fringe of what it is to be Black. nearly 85% of Blacks speak perfect English. Yet, Hollywood and the liberal media portrays only the lowest of the low-class Blacks as being the example of what it is to be Black. In fact, they raise the dregs of the Black community to stardom and wealth and then present them as examples of Blackdom, people like Jay-Z or other ill-conceived beings.

Someone like a Jay-Z is an embarrassment to the Black community. They are the people that are good for nothing more than to be laughed at. But, in this day and age of rampant consumerism, they couple uneducated and ignorant Black stars with entertainment. Consume one and you must consumer the other. Buy his music and you have to also buy that Black people can barely speak English.
