I am sick of all the ass kissing at Soulful Detroit to the moderator. Every other post is
MY DEAR RALPH
OUR DEAR MODERATOR
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK etc etc etc
There are no active Motown forums anymore except SD and no active Diana Ross forums except this one. I talked to my nieces, nephews, and young uns I mentor. What I wanted to know is where their generation stands with Diana Ross, Forums, and how do they communicate in social media.
1. Forums are dead. Not one of them is going to tolerate the set up of Ralph T as big daddy who disciplines the house and keeps it clean, while brain dead Roberta writes in every post , "My dear Ralph T" No way, no how.
2. I thought everyone knew about Motown but today's generation is not that familiar with Diane songs. They know Aretha, Gladys, Patti Labelle, Dionne, Whitney, Marvin, Stevie and so on and their music and legacy. What they know about Diane is she is a superficial woman who slept her way to the top and snaps her fingers at people.
3. If she was so big why did she play New York City Center? Legends play Madison Square Garden, Radio Music City Hall, and Carnegie Hall. It was pointed out to me that if she played Billie Holiday then she should have played Carnegie Hall. They know all about Billie Holiday and her music and Billie Holiday's Carnegie Hall Concert. The next event at NYCC is the Alvin Ailey Senior Project!
4. They looked at the SD forum and said "What if I didn't like the show?" "What if I didn't like her outfits?" "What if I didn't like her voice?" I can't post that. If I did then I am a trouble maker etc and this Ralph will have to discipline me. They pointed out in a political forum you present issues, usually that conflict in a public assemblage. SD is not a forum.
Just my humble opinion.
