So John Schnatter, founder and CEO of Papa John’s Pizza is planning to cut the hours of his employees and raise the cost of his pizza’s by 11-14 cents claiming its necessary with the re-election of President Obama and due to the Affordable Care Act. Personally, I don’t care about the increase in prices, my concern is him cutting employee hours. Papa John’s has had annual increase in profits over the past 4 years, unlike many American households. *HUGE SIGH* click here for more ~> PIZZA FRIDAY

Nasir Jones is MY favorite hip hop artist, rapper, lyricist… I was so happy when he announced his latest album, and even more ecstatic by his new single, Daughters. Check it out fam!
Usually on my birthday I travel out of town and party, party, PARTY, well this year while all my friends are partying at Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, at The Taste of Chicago or at a beach I’ll be enjoying a full day in Bar Review class down in Dixie (insert sarcasm here).
Since I won’t be out partying, sunbathing (yes I do lay out at the beach) or traveling with my friends, I figured I’d celebrate my “BIG 3 Day” by revving up support for a good cause… Education!!
June 2010, I featured Rustin “Roundup Russy” Moore as ”A FINE SOUTHERN GENT” and well, he’s proving just why he deserved that title. Russy’s latest venture is to raise funds to film a documentary of the FIRST 48 Hours of an incoming freshman’s experience at North Carolina A&T.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT…
Whether you’re an HBCU alum, a current student or a teacher, friend or family member of the former, this All Access Documentary of an HBCU incoming freshman will hit home. Meet Kaiya Watson from Los Angeles, California. She will be leaving home this August to fly across the U.S. to begin her undergraduate studies at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. Russy will be spending the first 48 hours with her from the time she lands in North Carolina, and arrives on campus.
SO WHAT’S YOUR WISH SOUTHERN SOCIALITE?
My wish is for everyone who reads this blog to donate a $3 as a “birthday wish” to this project.
HOW CAN YOU DONATE:

I’m Just Saying
If your daddy wasn’t around, or your child’s father isn’t around… Don’t dwell on that. For you have a father who has been with you since day one, even on the day the other guy walked out/away. He’s there daily loving you better than any man could ever love you. If we emulate and focus on his love, perhaps the disdain so many have towards “fathers” would decrease and relationships between father’s and children would increase… It really is easy, we just make it hard. #ijs
Last month the big theme for me was LOVE. (it’s a daily theme actually) Nonetheless, I enjoyed sharing and hearing love stories from my subscribers, readers and friends. Now that March is underway, I’m just as excited about Basketball as I was with love last month!!
March Madness… Basketball, Spring and new beginnings! That’s what March means to me. I got to thinking about the two themes for February & March, and so it was only natural that I think of my favorite movie, LOVE & BASKETBALL!
So as I sat here pondering over the lines of this film and my own thoughts of Love & Basketball I decided to write this prayer to God…
THE LOVE & BASKETBALL PRAYER
Lord, let him love you
Lord, let him love to love me
Lord, let him love to watch Love & Basketball with me
Lord, let him love Basketball as much if not more than I do
Lord, let him not love the Lakers but if you insist that he does, at least make him a Tarheel fan like me
Lord, let him love “The Clutch” and recall the 2 three-pointers from 1995
Lord, let him love to go to see the game played live
Lord, let him teach our kids to shoot with both the left & right hands
Lord, let him enjoy high school basketball rivalries, state championships, March Madness and June
Lord, let him know that I’ll love him more than Basketball
Lord, let him know these things and more in Jesus Christ name I pray until next time…
