Mercedes Benz Armor Protection for Black Men #hiphop

leave a comment »

When I say protect ya neck, I mean it. Here’s the specs on the Mercedes Benz armored vehicle. This car will protect you from 9 MM and .44 Magnums. This will keep Plaxico and others safe. Do it now. Don’t go to jail. I’m serious.

Mercedes Benz Armored Vehicle E-guard

“A brother of the Mercedes-Benz S Guard, the E Guard class represents itself as very safe, reliable and luxurious armored car which comes fully armored from a production line. The B4 protection level protects passengers from hand guns such as 9mm gun, 0.357 Magnum, 0.44 Magnum with speeds up to 440 m/s.

Production of the model series W 211 started in the year 2002 and continues until today (2007). The E Guard models use 4 types of engine; the E320 and E500 (both of which were released in 2002*), E350 (2005*) and E320 CDI (2006*). Unlike the S 600 Guard class with B6/B7 armoring protection and speed electronically limited to 210 km/h, the E class’ weight is 2580 kgs (see the table below for more details) which makes it possible to reach a maximum speed of 240 km/h which is also electronically limited.

Due to it’s armor weight, the Mercedes-Benz E Guard cars use the Anti-Dive system which prevents the vehicle suspension from deflecting. Such deflects are caused by braking, when the front wheels and wheelbase get put under enormous pressure. Naturally, similar forces develop on the rear wheels and wheelbase during the acceleration process which is why the Anti-Squat system is also used there. Anti-Squat is simply the same system as Anti-Dive, but designed for the rear.”

Why would Lamar Odom marry Khloe Kardashian?

leave a comment »

I mean, what’s the appeal? Ok. She’s relatively unknown other than a reality show. Why would a Los Angeles Lakers World Champion marry someone like Khloe Kardashian? I watched this show this past week and saw singer Omarion pleading with this lady and wanting to shift from being friends for seven years into a relationship. This dude actually seemed hurt that she didn’t want to be more than friends. I asked myself, “Why would someone be that into Khloe Kardashian?”

I then see the news yesterday that NBA Los Angeles Laker and World Champion Lamar Odom has proposed to this chick and they are getting married this upcoming Sunday. I was appalled and could not figure out why. It’s not like Lamar Odom needs hype and needs notoriety the way Omarion does. Omarion’s career is in the dumps. He needed Khloe Kardashian to lift him out of obscurity and make his career pop off again. But Lamar Odom? What does he need Khloe for? I came to the conclusion that he must love her.

They’ve known each other for a month according to reports. Why would you make $10,000,000 per year and marry Khloe Kardashian? What is the appeal? Does Lamar Odom think she has money so therefore she won’t mess up his money when they divorce next year? But wait a minute. Her dad, Robert Kardashian, was a great lawyer who worked on the O.J. Simpson case. I think, had she not been pregnant, Lamar Odom would have been better off marrying this hottie, Kourtney Kardashian.

If Lamar Odom wanted a Kardashian and not go after Reggie Bush’s ex Kim Kardashian, his best pick would have been Kourtney —>>>>. Kourtney is crazy hot and Kim is kind of average. Not that looks are everything but this whole union smells of something more than love to begin with. Just like when Omarion was pushing up like crazy. On TV it seemed as though he was sincere but then it looked much more contrived than anything because he was pushing so hard to get her.

Music Artists May Want To Invest In A Career

leave a comment »

2008’s album sales are in and look very dismal. In 2008, 115,000 albums were released into the United States market. Out of this number, only 110 albums sold over 250,000 records. Only 1,500 sold over 10,000 records. I think that artists should stay in the studio AND have an alternative hustle. Just know that breaking into the 110 is going to be a long hard road.

The Black Mans Emergency Survival Kit

leave a comment »

I used to attend Muslim meetings at Your Black Muslim Bakery on San Pablo Avenue in Oakland, CA with Adisa Banjoko and Dr. Bey used to always say “As steel sharpens steel, men sharpen men and vice versa for women.” I agree.

As the world has been literally shocked with the violent death related news of several black men, I thought it prudent to come out and help tell our black men how to stay out of morgues, jails, and prisons.

Black Men Beware of beautiful prisons designed just for US.

Black Men Beware of beautiful prisons designed just for US.

First of all, when an encounter or beef starts to escalate, we men handle it differently than women. Black women can get in each others face and not let it escalate. We do NOT handle in your face tactics. If someone gets in your face and challenges you, walk away. Do not retaliate. Do not buck up. Do not start screaming and yelling. This helps you stay alive to live another day.

Learn to know when to buck up and when to walk. Most encounters happen because of our male ego and especially as black men. We typically don’t want anyone seeming superior to us so we will act a fool when someone decides to get loud or challenge our manhood. Again, know when to walk away. Not every situation requires you to prove you’re the man. Sometimes being the man is swallowing your pride and walking away. Learn to control your anger or it will completely DOMINATE YOU.

If it appears as though someone is ready to take out a knife and start a battle with you, even if you have a gun, walk away. You don’t need to kill them and take their life. You are setting in motion something that you know nothing about. Walk away even if you feel confident with your .44 Magnum locked and loaded. This does not make you a man and determine your power. You will be headed for a 25 years to life bid in the big house.

Know that violence is not always the answer to every black mans problem. Just because you may be having a hard time and some one crosses you, you do not need to resort to violence. Solve this by learning to come to peace with who you are as a man. Run into the church and get your spirit washed and cleansed. Get healed of anything that makes you feel inferior or like you can’t achieve your dreams.

Find another black man and talk to him about how you feel. Find him at bible study or find him at the church, mosque, masjid, temple, or somewhere in a spiritual or educational environment. He is out there waiting to help.

Black College Students Required to Study Technology

leave a comment »

To fight through this recession and compete with immigrants for jobs, black students should be required to take mandatory technology courses in college. I would like to petition all Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) to make this mandatory in order to rebuild the black middle class. The technology can be any type of technology that should include software engineering classes, hardware engineering classes, bio-technology, and even pharmaceutical technology.

Black Students are the Future of the Middle Class

Black Students are the Future of the Middle Class

We already have enough artists. My twitter is filled with every young black man and woman headed to the studio and it seems like this is all young black people strive for. We need to get out of the studio and study hardcore math, technology, life sciences, and medical. If we don’t, we are headed for disaster.

I wrote an article on H1B Visa’s taking over and the Indian dude that commented wanted to insinuate that I didn’t know anything. Little did he know I’m a highly skilled software engineer and his people usually work for me. However, that’s me and I’m somewhat rare. We need to impart this into our youth and get out of the studio and into the math and computer science lab. We need more candidates considered for jobs at Oracle, Sun Microsystems, Genentech, Cisco Systems, etc.

HBCU’s need to make at least HTML and XML coding classes mandatory or at least an Oracle or Microsoft class and not let our kids skate through.

Michael Vick Re-United With Nike

leave a comment »

Thank goodness! I’m so glad to hear the news that Michael Vick was re-united with sports super powerhouse Nike. The deal was announced during a panel discussion at the Sports Sponsorship Symposium by Michael Principe, the managing director of BEST, the agency that represents Vick. I knew that Nike would seriously reconsider after seeing that Michael Vick’s jersey is one of the top 10 selling football jerseys on The NFL Shop website. Nike, always one to make money, know they have a goldmine.

In another blog, I already broke down the numbers of the Michael Vick sales and it adds up very quickly. See The Spinks Industries blog here. Nike fully knows that once people forget about the past that Michael Vick merchandise will represent huge numbers for them. Especially if he returns to top form, which I expect him to sooner rather than later. Let me put it this way for all you non-believers: Mike Vick can move the ball down the field better than Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell who can’t even put up touchdowns yet has a $31 Million guarantee in his contract.

I rest my case. Mike Vick will return to prominence. Let me go ahead and order my new Michael Vick Eagles jersey and order a new Atlanta Falcons throwback jersey. Finish Line NBA
