Once, Just Once

I’d like Tavis Smiley and Cornell West to comment on national or international affairs unrelated to race or President Obama’s failings.

I’d like to meet an older woman who doesn’t hate on younger women and pretend that it’s about falling standards.

I’d like to eat something really decadent without having a calorie counter ticking in my head.

I’d like to see a young man open a door for an older man and step out of the man box to find out what he has to say.

I’d like to see someone say something serious about the astronomical African American unemployment rate.

I’d like to see anti-birth control forces hoisted on their own petards.

I’d like to see a season of justice in my lifetime.

I’d like to see a long term commitment to coalition politics.

I’d like us to abandon shame and shaming.

I’d like an agenda and spin free season.

What would you like to see?
