    Y’all deserve a treat this afternoon. Remember this? I never knew what the lyrics meant until I found this on youtube.

    • yahtzeebutterfly says:

      Wow. Thanks Liza. I love that song and now I know the meaning.

      • Liza says:

        YVW, Yahtzee. I think everyone on earth has heard the melody. I’ve heard this most of my life and didn’t have a clue what it was about. Then I was watching Mad Men Season 2 which is set in 1963 a couple of days ago and there’s Don Draper, sitting in a Chinese restaurant, and they are playing this song so I looked for it on youtube. It really takes me back.

  2. Please tell me, why does @CNN go to ppl like Star Parker to discuss #BlackLivesMatter and the Dem debate?

    Good Morning 3Chics,
    I would have preferred the JHolliday version of And I’m Telling You…great list. Something old and new and all to the point.

    Hello Dallas. FLOTUS has been on safety for girls and women…forever. So has 3Chics. Remember, Hadiya was from her neighborhood.

  4. Folks gonna learn the hard way. There are kick ass Chicas in this place. We will beat your ass and still be sexy.

    Comment from POU:

    Good morning. I did not watch the debate but read everything here last night. This may be an odd analogy but my problem with HRC is the same as my problem with Brady, Beleicheat and the Patriots which is if you know a team its coach and QB have been cheating for years how can you then say the coach is the greatest ever, the QB is the greatest ever and the team will go down as one of the greatest ever. How can you say that given their history of cheating and winning 3 SBs by 3 points each. Isn’t it more than likely, their cheating gave them at least a 3 point edge? The same applies to HRC. If you know she’s a liar, warmonger, triangulator, ethically challenged and, I believe, a racist, why would one debate “performance” change those underlying beliefs. She’s shown us over and over again that she’ll say and do anything to win the presidency so why should last night be any different. It shouldn’t and it isn’t for me.

    And finally, I’m deeply disturbed by this effort to keep Joe out. It’s clear that for people who don’t like HRC or Sanders, they will likely settle on her and her team knows that. We don’t have real choices. She’s basically running un-opposed right now and that is just not right. It’s anti-democratic. They’re basically saying if we don’t like her, tough! You’ll vote for her because she’s all you’ve got.

    Lamar Odom was taken to a hospital after he was found unresponsive at a brothel in Nevada on Tuesday, according to a statement from Nye County Sheriff Sharon A. Wehryl. The 35-year-old former NBA player had reportedly been at the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada, for days partying and using a herbal substitute for Viagra. Owner Dennis Hof, who also owns the Moonlite Bunny Ranch featured in the HBO series Cathouse, said he called 911 and Odom allegedly began foaming at mouth and throwing up. An ambulance took Odom to the hospital, where he was stabilized and prepared to be transported to another hospital by helicopter. However, he was unable to be transported by air due to his stature so he was taken to a hospital in Las Vegas, Wehryl said.

  10. Who cares? Blacks are under a state of genocide. Has she seen the torture/murder video of Natasha McKenna, that was conveniently released 7 months after the horrific crime during election time. I am not insensitive to her position as first lady of the nation; But this kind of triviality is hard to take after seeing what can occur in this country. It gives a feeling of being unsafe, particularly when the cops were absolved of all wrong doing.

    • eliihass says:

      Well what do you know?! One of the self-righteous who think they know better, are more conscious and aware, and care so much more about ‘black genocide and the murder of black women’, than the most maligned and dehumanized first black First Lady who by the way has been the focused target of the most vicious hate-filled racists, and has gotten and continues to get as many death threats as her husband the President – an unprecedented and record first for any American First Lady.

      She couldn’t possibly know or care about the plight of black women like her because she, at the request of the United Nations in collaboration with Spotify, released a single playlist in celebration of the United Nations International Day of the Girl!

      You did not elect her to anything. As a matter of fact some of you would be first in line to insult her/shut her down and accuse her of over-stepping her boundaries, thinking she was part of a co-presidency, being over-assertive, showing up and emasculating her husband, if she did what people like you demand of her – when of course it suits your purposes-

    • Ametia says:

      WE care, Dallas Newton.

      It’s TRIVIAL of you to stop in here and comment on a fucking playlist, when you haven’t come to comment on all the other posts we’ve done on PEOPLES OF COLOR being BRUTALIZED & MURDERERED.

      Now go save some black lives, because it’s obvious to me that you don’t think anyone cares including FLOTUS.

      Bye now, and thanks for playing attack First Lady Michelle Obama!

    • rikyrah says:

      Black people have always been under attack in this country. It’s nothing new. We always have to be vigilant.

      • Tell it, Rikyrah. Slavery, Jim Crow, Segregation, Voting Rights, Three strikes, Stop & Frisk. Black folks always under attack. Who knew a playlist would set some ppl off?
