The Black Man's Hustle....***

Kravitz: Cruel Confession About Nicole
Lenny Kravitz has made a cruel confession: He doesn't really love Nicole Kidman. He's using her to raise his own profile and sell records. The cad!

That's the word from The New York Post's Page Six gossip columnist Richard Johnson who revealed Kravitz made the confession to friends who then must have squealed. The unlikely couple has been spotted together for months now and the latest rumors had them buying a home together in New York City.

What is up with Black men?!!! Is SELFISHNESS the latest fashion?!!!Must everything and everyone be a fucking hustle?!!! I have always hated that characteristic (the "hustle" characteristic) that a lot of Black (American) men possess and "a certain ex-husband and his dad" (well those two more like lie and fabricate than they do hustle)....Hustling is unique to the Black male...Nowadays it is all about the "bling bling" (neo-hustle) mentality!!! Damn!!! What did Nicole ever do to you Lenny?!! For God sakes she adopted Black babies!!! Damn rap music!!!

*Black Males from other countries and the Caribbean tend to be different--they are not obsessed with hustling...
