The Eldrick Woods Relationship Blog: Getting Past The Kardashian

Getting Past The Kardashian

It’s Sunday. I’m watching the Arizona Cardinals get mopped by the New Orleans Saints. In the game, Reggie Bush scores two touchdowns and arguably has the greatest game of his NFL career. All the while, cameras pan throughout the game to a luxury skybox where famous person, and Bush’s girlfriend, Kim Kardashian sits with her family. The game is hardly interesting, it’s pretty clear the Saints are going to win, so my mind wanders, and it hits me:

Kim Kardashian deserves to be in a new category of fine.

I’m not comparing her to other famous, beautiful people or making this statement based on a particular angle the cameras shot her at. I’m not even saying I think she’s fine (she’s fine). I am saying, look at Kim Kardashian’s man, then, look at her past. Add it all up, and we are witnessing an unprecedented level of preferential treatment for the fine.

Reggie Bush is one of the game’s richest and most famous players in the league. Women who don’t watch one game of football know the name Reggie Bush. It is safe to say Bush has put himself in a position to get any woman he wants. Any woman! Women we have never seen in our lives, and women we see all the time on TV. But what women does Reggie Bush choose to be with?

Kim Kardashian, the girl who had sex on camera with Ray J.

All of this is old news in the gossip world, but ask any man who has ever found out something about his woman’s past. What a woman did in the years before she met her man does, to a certain extent, matter to him.

Everyone sing along with Mario Winans, “I don’t wanna to know.”

Men don’t want to know anything about our women and another man, even if we didn’t know her when she was doing something with another man. Yet, there is Reggie Bush, proudly placing a woman everyone has seen have sex on camera with Brandy’s brother, in a luxury box suite. There’s Reggie Bush, posing on the red carpet with a woman who arguably became more famous after the world saw her goodies. There’s Reggie Bush, making all kinds of public appearances with a woman whose impurity was showed on more screens than Avatar.

And there’s Reggie Bush not caring about any of it.

Of course, this is just speculation and observation, but educated speculation and observation. I don’t know Reggie Bush personally, but I do know men. When a man finds out his woman has a past he never imagined, it’s a difficult pill to swallow. Sometimes, men choose to spit it out and not deal, over little things like their girlfriend’s crazy Spring Break back in her college days. So imagine how difficult it is to get past something on Kim Kardashian’s level. To move on from such a thing requires one of two things: 1) One of those nifty little memory eraser pens we saw in the Men In Black movies, with a side of years of therapy. 2) A woman so fine, she can do no wrong, and even when he finds out she did, she’s still too fine to let go. “It’s just a sex tape. We’ve all done it,” he’ll say.

From the looks of it, Reggie Bush has on his hands, reason number 2 in spades. I only say that because if she looked like any one of the numerous women he sees on a daily basis, he would have kicked Kim to the curb like she was an extra point. I’m sure people will tell me different, that men eventually fall in love with a woman to the point where her past doesn’t matter, but trust me, if a man stays with a woman in spite of any sordid past — from filming a sex tape to a wild night on a tropical vacation with her girls — a very huge reason is she’s the finest woman he’s seen on and off camera.

Stockton Launches Basic Income Program Gifting Residents With $500 A Month

Stockton, California has launched its basic income plan gifting dozens of residents with $500 a month, the Huffington Post reports.

Last year, Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs responded to criticism over the program which was designed to help close the poverty gap as residents struggle to stay afloat amid California's skyrocketing rent prices and increase in homelessness.

The basic income plan -- the first of its kind to be launched by a U.S. city -- was announced by Tubbs and the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration (SEED) in 2017. Under the program, 130 residents will receive a monthly stipend via prepaid debit cards for the next 18 months.

Exciting! Congrats to the team, the city, and to the recipients. We’ve learned so much getting to this point and I am looking forward to learning more. Stockton lead the way @stocktondemo #ReinventStockton

— Michael Tubbs (@MichaelDTubbs) February 15, 2019

Stockton's median household income is just under $50,000 a year. Residents are chosen through an “algorithm” to make sure that the selection is representative of the community’s diversity.

The money is funded by a grant from the Economic Security Project, in addition to other funds raised, Tubbs said.

“There’s no restriction on how people can use the money,” he pointed out. “If people use it for drugs and alcohol that’s there prerogative. [But] if I didn’t believe in the capacity of the folks who elected me to make good decisions, I probably shouldn’t be mayor.”

Alabama Newspaper Editor Calls On KKK To Lynch Democrats In Washington D.C.

The editor of a failing Alabama newspaper made news after he penned an editorial pleading for the KKK to “night ride again.” Goodloe Sutton, editor and publisher of the Democrat-Reporter, a small weekly paper in Linden, Ala., doubled down on his racism in an interview Monday (Feb. 18).

"If we could get the Klan to go up there and clean out D.C., we'd all been better off," he told the Montgomery Advertiser. "We'll get the hemp ropes out, loop them over a tall limb and hang all of them.”

Sutton added that he’s not asking for “Americans”  to be lynched. “These are socialist-communists we’re talking about.” He also compared the KKK to the NAACP. “They didn’t kill but a few people. The Klan wasn’t violent until they need to be.”

In his editorial, Sutton lashed out against Democrats in the Republican party for “plotting to raise taxes in Alabama.”

“They do not understand how to eliminate expenses when money is needed in other areas,” he wrote. “The socialist-communist ideology sounds good to the ignorant, the uneducated, and the simple-minded people.”

Later in the piece Sutton put a bird call out to the KKK. “If you haven’t noticed, they did away with the draft so their sons would not have to go into battle. Seems like the Klan would be welcome to raid the gated communities up there.

Sutton’s editorial is obviously catching backlash and calls for his resignation. The Alabama Press Association’s Board of Director’s condemned Sutton and suspended the newspaper’s membership. Auburn University’s Journalism Advisory Council voted to revoke his award in community journalism and the University of Southern Mississippi took him off their Journalism Hall of Fame.

Sutton's paper is doing so badly that he was forced to move the publication to an old barbecue restaurant. This new round of publicity could officially put the paper out of its misery.
