Hello my #BMJers, what's the deal pickle is everything kosher? lol...We have been shutting social media down every Tuesday night since season 2 premiered. Woooohooo! I hear Season 3 is going to AWEsome, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
Last week on episode 6, BKA #OhYesSheDid the topic of suicide was explored. For many years in the black community we considered suicide to be a "white thing," but it's not. There are so many people across socio-economic statuses, color, faith and gender who battle suicide, low self-esteem, depression and lack of self-confidence. This episode focused on suicide and black males, which was interesting and worthy of applause. In the height of Ferguson and other gun related violence towards our African-American males this episode was right on time.
I have always been the supportive type of sistah. While dating, I would support whatever project the boo was apart of, whether I was interested in it or not. But MJ, posed a great question while discussing the suicide issue with Sheldon, her new I hope to be beau, (we will discuss that subject momentarily); who will be there for the black woman? Not to say that the brothers don't need our support, but who will uplift the sistahs? Who will tell us that our hair is beautiful whether kinky, curly or loc'd? That our complexion -mocca, caramel,or berry black is rich and pairs well with bright and bold colors. That our curves are to be celebrated and the fullness of our lips kissed daily. Who will be there for the black woman?
I know one brother who wants to be there for MJ and that is David. David is really #TeamMaryJane right now. What's up with that? He is living with another woman and having a baby by her. Hello somebody! In season one we clearly thought that David moved on. But did he? I know this is just a show, but David and MJ situations happen all the time. My question is simple, if you love them why not just be with them? I just don't get it... It's complicated you may say. I don't believe love is that way. Love is free, simple, and easy. It gives what it receives. It's the things surrounding love that make it complicated, like: work and bills. But love, it's so simple.
Now back to Shaka, I mean Sheldon. I am really liking Sheldon for Mary Jane. He is intellectually astute, direct and sexy. Let's have a moment of silence for Sheldon's sexiness........... But seriously, Sheldon asked Mary Jane on a date and even told her that he would be out of the country for a couple of days. He communicates. YESSSSSS! He knows what he wants. YESSSSS! Well they did say he was 50+, I'm going to need Sheldon to know exactly what he wants at that age, you don't have much time buddy lol. But fellas, we want to be asked out on dates and not through text message either. Call us. We want to hear your sexy voice. Yes we do. We really do. When did calling become so prehistoric anyway???
Nevertheless, right after Sheldon asked MJ on a date, MJ goes back to David. Momma nooooooo. I won't lie, I was sooo disappointed. But that happens. MJ tried to close the door, but it was still open because David still had feelings for MJ. *sigh* Somebody pass me a box of tissue or the bible. I don't know if I should cry or pray, because I'm so confused lol. Does David only want MJ because she is moving on. Does her absence speak volumes? Do you miss MJ? Taking a sneak peek of this week's new episode I am led to believe that MJ possibly had sex with David to get back at him? We shall see..
Can't wait to tweet with you all this week. See you Tuesday night. Follow me on twitter if you like, @Lala_bangs :).
