Now Omar can sing, but he is so serious when he sings. Which is fine, but sometimes you just got to let go and have fun with it!

So in just 24 Hours, my reaction video to "Sexy Spec's" ummm... Dance Challenge has reached over 5,500 views! It was even featured on two gossip websites! I mean its been crazy! Overall, most of the comments have been relating to the comedic aspect of the video, but I have also got some very homophobic comments not only towards Sexy Spec himself, but us as well!
I for one take everything with my funny bone intact cause some of the comments were just ridiculous. All and all, to me it was pure comedy!
But this experience brings up an interesting question. Sexy Spec has already went on the radio to state that he is "not gay, and that the video was just for the ladies." All we can do is take his word for it right?
So then, what makes this video so GAY?
IS IT BECAUSE HE IS A PRETTY RICKY?
There is no doubt about it, Spectacular is a pretty dude! Light skin, braided hair, well groomed. No one can't disagree he is a cutie, but does him being "pretty" make him gay? There are plenty of "pretty" guys that are heterosexual. Wouldn't a women want someone that is attractive?
IS IT BECAUSE HE WAS GRINDING?
Now we all know that there are a million straight dudes that grind on YouTube. I have passed by a couple in my day! What makes what he did any different that any other dude? I mean truth be told, Omarion, Chris Brown and Day26 have grinded on stage before. Spectacular does this kind of dancing on stage all the time for the ladies, why is this any different?
IS IT BECAUSE HE HAD ON RED BRIEFS?
Ok lets tackle the Briefs first. Sure we can argue that boxers are more manly then briefs, but all in all, any men gay or straight can wear any kind of underwear they want! We all have a pair in our drawers. I think women find both underwear sexy, right? So is it the color? Is the color to gay? Is there such thing as a gay color? I mean they weren't rainbow right? And red does symbolize sexiness? If we saw any other man in red briefs would it be a problem? Wouldn't the ladies like a man in some sexy red briefs?
IS IT BECAUSE ITS RECORDING ARTIST ON YOUTUBE?
Would this be an issue if this was any ol' dude on YouTube? Does him dancing in red briefs to sell a record make him gay? We all know how hard it is to promote a musical project in this day in age... was this just a good marketing scheme? Everyone watches videos on YouTube anyway, so if anything shouldn't he be celebrated for being such a genius instead of being called gay?
In conclusion. Let's say Sexy Spec is a heterosexual.
Then doesn't that change the way we think about homosexuality?
Can you imagine a world where Straight Men can be so open and free?
Will we call Omarion, Bow Wow & Trey Songz GAY if they take the challenge?
HAS SPECTACULAR CHANGED
HOW WE VIEW GAY FOREVER?????

It felt really good being with my friends this weekend. If only you guys knew how much I really do care about you them. I have been emotional a lot today. My relationships either it be with Remarkable, Family, Friends or the general community is important to me. I hate to feel imbalanced.
But overall I'm cool.
So I joined Twitter, and I realized like most things, you get what you put into it. As I told you guys before... I refuse to talk about mundane things like "sitting on the toilet" or "I'm washing my balls" or something like that. A little bit of humor and positive energy goes a long way to its destruction! Oh you think I joined Twitter because I was sucked in? I joined to destroy it from the inside! 140 characters at a time! Honestly, we will see how it goes in the next couple of weeks.
What I don't like about twitter is the conversations that really don't interest me. Like Sports! I don't like sports, and all day yesterday everyone kept talking about that damn Lakers game, Even Brandy, and yah know I love me some Brandy, but ugggh! LOL. I also don't like hearing other people's conversations and not know what they heck they are talking about. Its like being in a room, and someone in the corner is just having a good ol' time with there inside joke! But hey, that's the nature of the BEAST. Also realized that people that I admire, are not that interesting on twitter. On top of that, the more people I follow, the more my phone bogs down with bugs! As much as I want to follow everyone, its really not going down! That don't mean we not cool, its just that, I love my phone more! Hit me up on YAHOO, or better yet CALL ME, Want my Number? LOL.
In REAL LIFE... my aunt tells me that my father wants my phone number because he has been clean for 8 months and he wants to have a "relationship" with me. I don't know how I feel about that. I have never had my father in my life. period. So I don't know how to. Funny how someone that you never really had a contact with can make you so emotional. I do want to talk to him and see why he did what he did, and forgive him if I can. We will see how it goes.
Me and Remarkable are wonderful! Hey Baby! He sneaks and reads my blog from time to time, so I'm going to give him a SHOUT OUT! "Make sure the international people go in the right line, lol." So yeah, we are doing really good. He has been working out. Note, how I say HE. He has been working out and he is coming together really well! I saw him last night in his cute little, welll anyway... he looked nice! :) I have been lazy. Don't get me wrong, my body is still cool, just not "Summer Ready!" Tommorrow though...
Work is Work. Still looking for a job. That's that about that subject.
The FIVEBLACKGUYS Anniversary is going really well. We had females take over our day, and I felt DREA did a wonderful job. She has a great sense of positive energy that matches mine, which is what I loved about her. I think I have been coined as the "ENERGETIC" one in the group. Someone made a comment that I should bottle up some of my energy and sell it or something. I mean I just try and be positive and funny, and make people feel good after a long hard work week.
So Last week I had to eat DOG FOOD! Ughhhh... never again! It was hard seeing me eat it also! And I didn't even pay attention to Chilli eating the food I threw up! If you haven't seen the video, please go! Ok maybe not, its nasty!
Oooohh Boy You Nasty! LOL
Yeah never again. Unless someone pays me.
I saw Star Trek like last week. GREAT MOVIE, even if your not a trekkie. Can't wait to see Transformers! When does that come out again? Should I go see Angels and Demons? I'm not sure yet.
OK I'm starting to ramble now, that's my cue to leave!
Enjoy your week guys... more videos are coming. Don't act like they ain't and stuff!

"Straight men, should learn more about the outlooks and contributions of gay men. Read a book by a gay author. Have an intelligent conversation with a gay neighbor. At a time when it was truly scandalous to have homosexual friends or associates, Dr. King looked to Bayard Rustin, a black gay man, as a trusted adviser. And, Malcolm X regarded James Baldwin, a black gay man, as a brilliant chronicler of the black experience. To my straight brothers, diversity at Morehouse is an opportunity that can enrich your education if you are courageous enough to seize the opportunity. We cannot force you, but we invite you to learn from your environment."
- President Robert Franklin, Morehouse College President
I want to do a post about this later,
so look out for that soon.

I take one step forward, and end up two steps back. I make leaps and bounds, only to go a hop, skip or a jump. I'm wise beyond my years, only to make mistakes over and over again. I am the underdog. Born in a world with disadvantages that are my advantages. I barely make it by the skin of my teeth victoriously. I live in a world, where everyone wants to be on top. I admit that they are better then me, but I also know that I am just as good.
Be under with me.
Are you an underdog to?
