Pull up a seat and have a steaming cup with me as we discuss issues central to the west-indian community, the african-american community and the LGBT community.

A Day Late and a Dollar Short...

The funniest thing happened. Funny Hee-Hee, not funny HaHa. You see, I promised to launch this blog on the 5th which was yesterday .But for some reason, I was thinking that yesterday was the 4th and TODAY would be the 5th ! Isn’t that funny? Well maybe not. Forgive me.
I guess I was just too caught up in all the excitement of Super Tuesday.

I have to admit. Even though I’m not an American citizen and therefore cannot vote, I find this election riveting. It’s history making and record breaking. Right about now, had I been born American, I’d say something like, ‘I’m proud to be an American’. But since I’m not, I’ll say, ‘ I’m just proud to be a …citizen of the world.’ As messed up as it is, as sick as our planet has become, we all have to be proud that we exist in a time when either a woman or an African-American man could soon be the new leader of the free world. Isn't that something?

Well, with that said…welcome to Coffee Will Make You Black. I’ll be your cafĂ© host E. Because I love you, all the coffee’s on me and there are always free refills. We’ll learn more about each other as time goes on. I’m excited about that.

Coffee’s on…
