Victor Scott is a successful sexy bachelor from Harlem.  Particular about who he welcomes into his world he keeps most at bay.  A relaxing night and an open window lead to an unexpected interest in his seductive, voluptuous neighbor.

Allured by her confidence and delightful proportions Pearl is everything that Victor desires.

Does he settle forever being a voyeur?  Or does the voyeur become the one who is being watched?

She emerged from her kitchen, crossing in front of the windows, with a goblet of wine in hand. Victor cracked his neck, anxious for her next move. Secretly, he had been watching her for months now. Stumbling in late after a long night of partying, he was on his way to the kitchen, when he caught a glimpse of her in her living room completely naked, painting. Her free-spirited nudity captivated him. “She” was his Pearl, the nickname he had given her. The pearl necklace she wore faithfully, always hung loosely from her neck. A voluptuous, caramel beauty, she had the air of a regal African goddess. Mango-sized breasts hung naturally to her plump, round stomach. The deep arch in her back made her ass stand out as a prized stallion’s would. Victor loved to watch her ass jiggle loosely, as she casually walked around her apartment in the buff. He wanted to rub his hands across the stretch marks on each side of her hips. It was more than just the visual of her rust-colored, large areolas, or the plump vagina in between her legs. The passion and intensity displayed on her face, while she would sit in front of the easel and paint turned him on. Completely smitten by her, she was everything that he wanted in a woman and then some.

Its Never A Good Time To Discuss “Black On Black Crime”

I recently read an article and the topic was  “Black On Black Crime”.  Now I am not here to prove nor do i have an hidden agenda. This is not about statistics , Black Loves Matter or any other organization. it is to bring attention to the plight of our youth in the black community  when it comes to guns, drugs, gang, violence and murder.
black-on-black-violenceRecently a 23 year old girl was shot and killed at a House Party in South Florida & i’m sure there were killings in black communities all over the the country this weekend. (Our prayers go out to the family & friends of the young lady that was murdered in Florida). *These are our Black sons and daughters, both young and old committing these murders. The killings i’m talking about are not committed by the police nor any of the people who we stand up to fight against and denounce.
Black-on-Black-CrimeI know a lot of you are the parents of men and women who have shot & killed people in our black communities. Some of your children are incarcerated or just came home from Prison after serving time for committing these killings. My prayers also go to you for the pain and suffering you experience as the parents of a child who has killed someone. The point of this writing is to start a discussion on how we can all do better to help our young people deal with the problems they encounter in the streets in other ways than grabbing a gun and killing someone.
Everyone has a theory & some even justify what the killers do as part of the life that they choose to lead. some say the streets , drugs, gangs , jealousy or hate is the reason so many people are shooting up our communities. And for those who say the Whites, the Latino’s or the Asians etc .are also killing in their communities or commit more crime than we do. That is not the point of this piece,they need to reach out to their young man and women as well.

The Prison Yard – by George Cash #Kindle

“The Prison Yard” it’s the next book in the “Prison Life” Short Story Series by Author George Cash. It’s tells of the experiences of a young man in an Upstate New York Prison. The Prison Yard takes you from behind the bars and out to The Prison Yard. What will happen to the inmate will he live, will he die or will he survive another day in the most dangerous place for a prisoner to be while he is in jail ? The Prison Yard.


Well I’ve ignored this motherfucker way past bed time, and now it was beginning to bother me a lot because now this prick was grilling me. He was making a mean ass face when he looked at me, and I was saying to Muhammad that I was tired of it. He gave me a couple of options and yard etiquette, and they were as followed.
“You can step to him and get to the bottom of it by straight up asking him what’s up? But,” Muhammad said, “Remember, we’re on The Yard.” As in many of our conversations, he was teaching me prison yard politics. He said:
“1. Everybody’s watching everybody and everything else.
2. The CO’s are doing the very same thing, that’s why they’re on the walls with guns in the first, second, and third place.
3. If you use your art, you have to win or life will become hell for you in this prison, knowing me or not; once you’re labeled a fake that’s a wrap.
4. If and when you fuck him up with Kung Fu, you get tagged by the prison as being a lethal weapon, and that means if you’re ever around any uproar of any kind, the CO’s know to approach with extreme prejudice, and handle you with maximum force no matter what, or who did what!”
