Swastika & Soul Food

It took me a while trying to figure out the proper title for this article, but I figure i couldn’t go wrong with keeping it simple and to the point. I speak on this to share with you my personal experiences and nothing else. In no way shape or form is this to promote racism or ignite any thing ugly, but if anything for you to apply answers to things that need fixing. We’ve all seen movies, television shows, news clips and articles on racism in other countries, states and even right here in California, but never did I think I would be confronted with dealing with racism face to face. For me, it was really a shock because I find myself being a cool cat to everyone, regardless of their color, race or religion. I figured if I took the proactive approach and treated people with kindness and respect, this should fertilize the response I got back from them, but this was not the case when I became a Black business owner in the City of Chino Hills, CA. It’s taken me a while to write this, but I feel I’ve held it in long enough. On Feb 15, 2005 I purchased a neighborhood bar in the city of chino hills with nothing but happy expectations of remodeling the place and bringing something fun and exciting for everyone to enjoy. I have to admit, it was a rough start out the gate. I opened my doors for business on a Tuesday, and by Saturday the fools who used to kick up dust at the bar before I bought it were getting very irritated of the fact that the new Owner was Black and they were starting to express their dislike. I was shocked at the ignorance coming from these people being it’s now 2005. I honestly felt like a black man trying to open a shop back in the 1940’s or something. I never seen a real SWASTIKA tattoo on anyone until I purchased this bar, I never heard the word Nigger screamed so loud so many times until I purchased this bar, I never received ugly hate airmail until I purchased this bar. Wow, I tell you, I saw real fast that this was going to be an uphill battle. I had to grab my nutts, take a deep breath and show these people that I’m here to do good business rather they like me or not. I remember this chick told me “wow, you and Mr. Woods (who owns the Ford dealership) are the only 2 Black business Owners in chino hills!” I was speechless; I didn’t even know what to say to her. I was there everyday listening to these local fake ass two face mutherfuckers telling me thanks for cleaning the place up but calling me bad names behind my back. The ugliness came from people of 21 years old to 60 years old, generations of racism rolled over through out the years and it came from the whites & the Mexicans. I gotta say, the word Racism is not what this really is. To me, a real racist does not react the way these people are reacting. These people are reacting to me out of bitterness and anger. This anger seems to be charged by seeing a young black man come into their town and purchase the ONLY bar in their entire city and they have also expressed their dislike that my background is heavily involved in the Adult Entertainment Industry. There may be things that they don’t like about me and my business decisions, but with them having so much anger, jealousy and bitterness inside of them, the easiest way for them to express their dislike is to call me a Nigger. I really kinda find this a way of them showing ignorance and a lack of communication.

Ignorance is the lack of not knowing and when you don’t know or understand somesomething, you can find yourself being intimidated of the unknown, and when people are intimidated, they seem to react in a hostile way. This can easily be fixed if we all took the time to bridge that gap of a simple thing called “communication”. If I could translate it to them that I come in peace and I mean no harm to them, but to bringsomething positive to their city, and they still react with hatred, I don’t really believe that is racism, I think that is plain ol’ jealousy and hatterism and it could still be cured with proper communication. It’s only so much anyone can continue to deal with stupid shit, so I soon found myself saying “fuck these bitch face mutherfuckers”. I did more business & better business than any place that has ever done business at that location. I soon had the locals telling me “thanks for cleaning up this place and making it into a very nice safe place, but sorry to say, by this time I was finished with it and wanted to move on to another location where I would feel welcomed and appreciated, so I decided to sale the 1DOWN Lounge after owning it for a year and 10 months. Once the locals found out I was selling it, they stepped to me to buy it, but I was like “fuck you” I ain’t selling shit to yo bitch ass, but this 1 white guy named Fred who lived in Chino Hills and always came to the bar dam near every day stepped to me and made me a solid offer and told me he was serious and already took out a loan against his house and he had the money in the bank. I told Fred to let me think about it and after thinking about it, I decided I would sale it to him, because he was 1 who always treated me cool and I had no bad feelings about him. He said this would be a dream come true for him to own the bar right next to his house. I told myself business is business; don’t let my personal feeling get in the way. Money is money. During the time we were getting all the paper work together and starting escrow, I found myself feeling a little odd about this transaction. My staff was very sad many of the locals were sad and the guy Fred was running around happy as fuck telling everyone he had bought the bar and was gonna be the new owner but I just wanted it over. Well, on November 14, 2006 at aprox 11:30pm I get a devastating phone call that Fred had just died! He suffered a blood clot that hit his heart and he had just only turned 50 years old. This was very shocking, I’ve never dealt with nothing like this and it was a very sad thing to see happen to such a cool guy who was very happy at that time in his life. I must say at this moment “Rest in Peace Fred”. Well, after Fred’s passing, I took this as some type of sign from God that maybe it wasn’t meant for me to sale the bar or for Fred to buy the bar so I have decided to keep it. Once I made that decision, I was able to recognize that odd feeling I was having during the sale, and it was that I was gonna miss the place.

I’ve come to realize that I will always have a hand full of people that don’t agree with my life style or the color of my skin, but that doesn’t mean I need to jump ship and relocate. I’ve never done it and even with this attempt, God put it right back in my hand and now I see why. I’ve now once again remodeled and now I’ve brought something else new to Chino Hills that this city has never seen “SOUL FOOD”! That’s right baby the 1DOWN Lounge & Grill now features Southern Style Soul Food by the world renowned Chef “Day Day”. I’m bringing that DOWN home cooking right to them. Trust me, I’m in this for the long run, and when God has sent me a message so loud and clear as this, I’m not gonna ignore it.

I will continue to do business in Chino Hills and this time I’m gonna make them love me, and as Don Cornelius from Soul Train would say…. “I wish you love, peace and soul.”

Thank you for reading this.

UPDATE: I sold the 1DOWN Lounge April 20, 2007

I Was 17 & She Was 29

I’ve been holding this in for 17 years! It was exactly 29 years ago when I was a senior in high school and the school year had just started. I was a cool dude, played 4 years of football, never ditched (because my moms would beat my ass), I was Homecoming King, and I was cool with everyone. I had fun in high school and sometimes I wish I could do it again. I got through school taking pretty much the basic shit because I had no intentions on going to no state university. I never took algebra, calculus, geometry or no shit like that. I had a cool ass Counselor and he would let me hand pick my classes to take the basic shit I needed just to pass. I remember 1 of my classes was called “basic calculator math”. This shit was funny, a calculator was bolted to the fucking desk and I was the only English speaking person in the class and everyone else spoke Spanish. Of course I passed and I also remember trading a kid my Raiders jacket for a pocket pistol in class.  He didn’t speak a word of english but actions speak louder than words.

So, it was the first week of school in my senior year and during lunch I noticed this sexy ass white lady with BOOTY walking through the quad and then hearing my friend say “look, look, there’s that new English teacher”. Once I heard that, I had already put my plan together. I left the quad at the very second and went to my counselor’s office because I knew he was having lunch and I asked him if I could change my English class, and as soon as i asked him, he says “let me guess, to the new English teacher right?” I said yup! He tells me sure, if she has room, go for it. He gave me a change class slip and I went straight to her class after lunch. I walked in and I asked her if I could transfer to her class and she immediately said she was full, I said “okay” and as I started to walk out, she says “I got room for 1 more, let me sign your slip”. I was like “hell yea boy!” So, the following day I started going to my new English class with the new teacher with ass.

I got cool with her real fast and I more saw it as her picking me to be the student / class aid, so she moved my desk to the back next to her desk. So, a few weeks later, I remember it was a Friday and I asked her what was she doing tonight and she said “go to the gym and relax at home”. She then asked me what plans did I have? I told her that I was gonna grab some ice cream, rent a movie, and come chill with her. She laughed and said, “you find out where I live, you are more than welcome to come visit me”. Well, lucky me, I ripped her address off the back of one of her magazines she brings from home and I pulled it out of my pocket and same “BAM!!” she looked at me and said “you’re bad” and then she said “so, are you coming over?” in a squeaky voice I said “yup”.

Oh shit, it was on now! After school I went straight home and I asked my relative to let me borrow his car to go see some chick. I went to rent a movie, I don’t remember what i rented, but I do remember that i got a pint of chocolate chip ice cream from Thriftys. So, there I was standing at my English teacher’s front door with a movie & ice cream in my hand, knowing what I’m doing, but not knowing what I’m really doing. I knocked on the door and she opened the door wearing her gray workout tights with the work out tube top. She was surprised and said “you made it, come on in”. She asked me if I wanted to put the ice cream in the freezer while she went to change into something more comfortable. I asked her if I could go use her restroom and she pointed down the hall.As I walked into the restroom, I was amazed! It was heaven, she had g-strings hanging from the shower and yes, you know I had to snag a black pair for proof & a souvenir. So, I shoved them deep into my pocket and went back and sat on her couch until she came out of her room. I remember she had a dog, a mean ass chow, and I think she had a piano. She came out of her room wearing something kinda sexy, simple, and relaxed. She asked me if I wanted to watch the movie in the living room or in her bedroom and I said I cool with either one. She then headed towards her bedroom. Oh shit! I remember that walk saying to myself “this is fucking crazy”. So, she put the movie in and she laid down in her bed and told me to have a seat and get relaxed. I sat up against her headboard and she was on the right side of me. It was crazy, it seemed like in the blink of an eye, the movie was over and the credits were rolling. I was just sitting there, and she says to me “why are you so nervous?” I said back to her “im not nervous”, then she says “yes you are, you’re the only person with all his clothes on”. I was like what the fuck, I reached over with my right hand to feel and to my surprise I felt nothing but skin! It was on after that, she crawled on top of me and the party started! She was freaky! I had 4 years of bustin’ gutts on my belt, so I wasn’t new to sex, but she sure did try to turn a brotha out. She had her hands full, because at 17, I was busting like 4 nutts before I was done.

Well, after we had sex, she told me it was very important that I told no one because she could get in big trouble and lose her job. She knew I had my relative that I kicked it with everyday and she knew I would tell him so she said to make sure he doesn’t tell anyone and then she said “see you on Monday”.

I went home and my relative was waiting for me to get the details because he had no idea where I went. First thing I did was slap him in the face with the panties I stole and said guess who’s panties these are? He had no idea, and then I told him and he went buck wild! He understood the seriousness of the situation so he never spoke on it to anyone.

So, now it was on. On Monday when i got back to school it was weird, it was like she started dressing a little more sexier. She was wild, and I remember the first time she told me to come see her in her class during lunch. I simply thought she wanted to say hi, but soon as I walked in she told me to shut the door and she “my English teacher” dropped to her knees and started giving me head! Yes, fucking crazy ain’t it. It got crazier. She would give me her car keys and I would take her car home, she would get a ride home from another teacher and I would use her car to get to her house later that night. Oh yea, and I remember the first time she took me to the Hilton hotel. She told me to stay in the car until she came back to give me the room number then told me to wait like 15min before I came up. As I walked into the room I saw rose pedals, candles, and she was wearing fishnets waiting bent over in doggy style! Yes, I must remind you as I reminded myself, this is my English teacher!

Well, as this went on, she began to like me and got really possessive and jealous of my friends in school that she heard had a crush on me. Some times she would walk in the quad to say hello to the kids just to be next to me without anyone knowing.

So, here is where the crazy shit came out. One day, she gave me some pictures of her, and some of them were her wedding pictures with the guy cut out. I didn’t care, it wasn’t my business. Then she tells me she wants to talk to me about something real serious. She tells me how much she really loves me and how she wants to be with me. I didn’t

feel the same, it was just sex to me. She tells me that she is going through a divorce and she hated the guy. She knew I sold guns and she knew that I was connected with good people and bad people. So, she told me to swear I wouldn’t say this to anyone if I didn’t want to do it and I said okay what’s up? She looked me straight in my eyes and told me she wants to pay $10,000 to have her husband killed and wanted to know if I would or if I know someone who would do it? I was nervous in a serious way about this! I told her I would think about it. I had no intentions on taking her up on this, because money was no issue for me in high school, I carried at least $500 a day on me. I went home and told my relative and he was shocked and said “man you should leave her alone, she’s crazy”. After that conversation with her, I pretty much backed off from her and she would constantly page me asking me if I made up my mind yet? I told her I didn’t need the money and I didn’t have anyone who wanted to do it, even though I asked no one. She seemed to bug out a little more, she gave me a piece of paper with his home address with a time schedule of when he leaves to go to work and when he comes home and when he goes to the gym. She told me to keep it just in case, but I threw it away! It was hard to give up the ass but I had to, this had got too crazy. So, the first thing I had to do was stop returning her calls when she paged me. As the school year passed, graduation was soon coming up and I knew I would be leaving the high school soon anyway. I stayed in her class, but everything stayed the same because we never showed any affection because we couldn’t, so no one knew that we had pretty much split up. It was weird, she was really hurt. I had no emotional attachment to her at all. I guess it was then I learned how to separate “love from sex” and it’s helped me ever since. I forgot to tell you that she did take me to meet her mom and family, and not as a student, but her student she was seeing.

So, for all of you since high school who always wondered about this, there you have it. The rumor is true, I was tapping that ass on my English teacher. Persons name & school name are confidential. Always remember, “those who tell, don’t know, and those who know, don’t tell”.

My Smooth Balls

My name is Goldie DeWitt and I’m gonna tell you something personal & funny. Last Wednesday I did something pretty fucking stupid! Stupid is what I defined it as now, but at the time I would say I was experimenting. Okay, promise you can’t tell anyone!!! I HATE hair on my body! I’m a smooth guy.  I dont like hair on my Arms, Legs, Head, Chest, Underarms, Ass, & my Balls. (too much information?) Okay, so your saying what the fuck is this fool getting at? Okay, hold on I’m getting there, I just gotta paint the picture first. So, for those of you out there who shave, you know that shaving is something we all hate to do, but we gotta do it. I shave with some electric clippers most of the time, and some times I use my Mach3 razor. I wish I could just take a pill that stop hair growth just to make it easy. Don’t get it twisted, I’m not a hairy guy, I just don’t like hair. So, last Wednesday I had this bright idea that i would go to the super market and try something I figured would solve my problem and make shaving a thing of the past. I sat in that market reading the back of these fucking labels until I found the winner. I bought me some “Veet”. Veet is that hair removal lotion that you rub on and wipe or rise off. I bought the “Rapid Action” that works in 3 minutes! I read the back again when I got home: Apply a think layer of Veet completely over hair, leave in for 3 minutes and rise off. In bold it read DO NOT use near eyes, nose, moles, breast nipples, or genital areas. Sounds pretty simple. They even advise you to try it on a small part of your body first to check for possible skin irritation. So, I tested it on my right knee. I put a think layer of Veet on my knee, waited my three minutes, put my knee under the shower and bingo, the hair simply rinsed away! I was like hell yea. So, I said it’s on. I squeezed a huge glob of this shit in my hands and slapped it straight to my nutts! I figured when I rinse these bad boys, they would be smoother than the side of a titty! I waited my 3 minutes but while I was waiting I was reading more of the back label of the Veet bottle. It said if your first application doesn’t completely remove all the hair, to repeat the process but not to exceed a total of eight minutes. I figured fuck it, I would just let it stay on for the full 8 minutes to ensure the smoothness of my soon to be shinny nutts. I brushed my teeth, trimmed my beard and then it was time. I jumped into the shower and began rinsing my nutts. I was pretty pleased that the product was working as I watched the hair from my balls just rinse away, but wait, all of a sudden, it hit me, a slight tingle, a slight cold/hot burn, then fire as if a cat was scratching my nutts and the water was alcohol!!! My nutts were on fire and I broke down to my knees in the shower with my nutts locked in my fist trying to keep the water and the air from them. I couldn’t catch my breath, and the pain grew stronger and stronger and now I was scared and my nutts were screaming pain! I jumped out the shower and looked at myself butt naked in the mirror with my nutts locked in my hand looking helpless. Every time I tried to release my nutts, it hurt so bad from the air contact, so I just had to hold them and look at them and apologize saying “sorry balls, just hang in there”. But when I looked at them, I freaked out because my balls were fucking red!! I mean these mutherfuckers were RED, like real fucking HOT NUTTS! I thought I saw blood so I grabbed some tissue and damped my nutts with the tissue, but they were not bleeding, but it sure looked like it. I opened my drawer and I saw some hope! I grabbed a tube of Neosporin that was sitting there and it read for scrapes, cuts & burns; I felt like I had all this plus more. I carefully, gently, rubbed the Neosporin on my balls in hopes that this would help in any way. Hold on what’s next? My wife comes home and says “babe I’m home” from down stairs and I said “Okay”. I was in no way gonna say anything about this shit. This is too embarrassing to admit to. She would have joked about it, and I wasn’t in no laughing mode. I just hoped it would go away. I walked to the bed room with my nutts feeling like someone rubbed them raw with sand paper. I put on some of my smaller “crime fighter” under wear to keep my nutts tucked in place to avoid as much movement as possible. I walked down stairs and she was standing in the kitchen reading mail and I greeted her with a kiss and she looks at me and says “you okay, you like preoccupied”, I said “oh, no, I’m okay” lying my ass off. Well, it’s been just about 9 days, and my nutts are 100% back to normal, Thank God.

Once again, this is something I know I should have kept to myself, but if I could save a fellow nutt shaver with this bad experiment I performed on myself, it was worth it to share.

Yea, I did read the part where it said do not use on genital areas, but i figured they were speaking to females on not getting it inside their coochie. I figured my balls would be fine, I figured wrong!

Oh well, back to the clippers & the razor, but hey, no hair on my balls yet!

(This was a article I wrote that was published in 2005 in my printed publication 1DOWN Magazine.)

P.S. I hope I’m not the only one who ever did this?

Gangbangin’ at The Highest Level

What’s really going on? What’s really going on in the Politics world! Yea, I was one of the few million new voters. I didn’t vote because I knew my vote would make a difference, I simply voted because I didn’t have shit else to do. I don’t know how much more convenient they could have made it for me to vote. The voting poll was right next door to my house. I got there around 8am with maybe 7 people in front of me. It took me all of 10min to cast my votes, get my sticker and I was out of there.

So, later that night while watching the votes roll in from across the states, I sat there looking at this trying to understand it in my own way, and I figured it out. Politics is like Gangbangin’ on the highest level. You got 2 sides and each one of them are trying to claim territory represented by a color. What a coincidence, RED & BLUE. “Now, this is going to get deep!” I watched the RED states back East and down South start to light up the map with the Republicans in support of Bush, it didn’t surprise me. Why? Okay, see if you can stay with me on this. Did you know when Bush was first running for presidency 4 years ago for his first term, he agreed to meet with the NAACP to get the “Black Vote”, but for the past for years straight, he has declined to meet with the NAACP after becoming president. The way I see it, you got a whole lot of old school “older people” representing back East and down South who are die hard Republicans sporting the color red. As time has passed, the younger generation from these families has migrated West seeking more freedom, opportunity and new growth towards California as democrats represented by the color Blue.

Times have changed. The majority of people involved is being challenged by a new breed of people getting involved and guess who it is? It’s me, it’s you, it’s your friends, it’s the young Urban audience. So what does all this mean you still ask? It means the Republicans are going to see a dramatic change in the Democratic participation over the next few years. It’s all about marketing and I would say this young new voting Urban audience is more attracted to Democratic policies rather than Republican policies. Do you know what Voting has just become? It’s just become Trendy. Now were talking serious! Trendy is the money maker and isn’t money the blood of politics! Young people do what’s cool. I can honestly say with the little knowledge I got over this past election plus the feeling that being recognized as a registered voter was the cool thing to do, it hand something to do with me voting, plus that free sticker for the day that said “yea, bitch I voted, and what did you do!” You ever heard the saying, “everything goes back to it’s original?” Did you know before there were Bloods & Crips, it was just 1 gang and they were called Piru Bloods. Later on, someone broke off and started another gang outside of the Blood territory and called it the Piru Crips. Why? just to be different and have more freedom. In the beginning of this, the Piru Crips still wore red as their gang color as well as the Piru Bloods, but in no time at all more changes were made and the Crips dropped the “Piru”, picked a new color Blue to represent them and they just called themselvesCrips. (Please believe me, this is 100% true shit I’m educating you on) So, one night back in the late 60’s at the Palladium Theatre on Sunset in Hollywood, CA a few Crips & Bloods found them selves in a scuffle over a jacket and a Crip shot a Blood and that’s what started the war and divided them forever. Being that Bloods were the original gang foundation, the population is not as deep as the crips anymore, but they do hold their ground. In a way, to relate gangs to politics, I would say Bloods would be Republicans & Crips would be Democrats. Why? It’s like Bloods are known as Well Dressed Pretty Boys coming from a more solid home front. Crips are known to be more buck wild, and coming from more of a low income type home front. Some of you might get it and some won’t. I’m not being offensive, I’m just saying it like I’ve LIVED it. So, if history continues to repeat it’s self and things go back to it’s original, more people will start to break off from the Republican party and start to join the Democratic party. Why? It’s simple, it’s Trendy and it’s the thing to do. Majority rules! No difference than which ever neighborhood you grew up in, the gang was the trendy thing to do but now these grown up gangs have a different title and it’s called “Political Party”.

Trippen Over Pussy

This is a serious problem and I just had to write about it. Mutherfuckers are getting too pussy whipped and trying to act hard at the same time. I must say, for where I’m at in my life and what I have been through, I laugh at this and I feel sorry for the poor fool who is sitting there fucked up in the head over some pussy. There is really no way around it. It may happen to you at a young age, or later in life, but you will find yourself straight up TRIPPEN’ OVER SOME PUSSY some time in your life. The key to this is to make it through that storm. Yea, you best believe it’s one ugly ass storm! This shit is fucked up because you might find yourself trippen’ over a really sexy ass chick, or just some hood rat chick who sucks and fucks you like a goddess.

We all know that the word BITCH generally refers to a female, but I gotta say, I have encountered far more guys who are straight up BITCHES in a real way! I can’t stand a jealous dude. A dude that has a chick that he just can’t control or keep in check, so he walks around fucked up in the head TRIPPEN’ OVER SOME PUSSY! I’m gonna tell you where this Bitch ass dude is going wrong. First off, “MEN” you have to learn and understand that females will do what they want, how they want, and when they want. You cannot control them. You can force them, but you cannot control them. Just because she is doing what you say when you are around, don’t think for a second she is still under your thumb when you’re not around. No woman likes to be controlled and if this is your way of keeping her in check, your fucking up. Give her her freedom and let her be herself and do as she please. If she’s being herself is not what you like, then she is not for you. It don’t mean force her to do what you say. You are not allowing her to grow and find out who she really is and what she is really attracted to in life. Stop holding on to a piece of pussy like it’s the last one left on earth. Females out number men 9 to 1 so please believe me, you got other choices than thinking your just stuck with what you have.

MEN never believe that pillow talk, them words that fuck you up when she says “this is your pussy, I will never fuck anyone else, your dick is the only one that will ever go inside of me”. Oh my god, you better not believe that shit! Trust me, she will fuck someone else, and don’t be surprised if it’s one of your homies! Yup, one of your homies will fuck your chick. It happens and some find out and some don’t, but she will fuck one of your homies. If your lucky, you will find out and it will teach you a lesson that a woman will do what she wants when she wants regardless of what she has said to you. Now please understand, as you learn to understand females, you will learn to respect them for this way of operating and you will learn to work with them and not against them. Give her space. Please believe me when I tell you this; you’re not going to bust a female. If you find something out, there’s a good chance she wanted you to know, because when a female wants to get away with doing something she doesn’t want you to know about, you will not have a fucking clue. Females might play dumb, but they ain’t stupid; Men are really the stupid ones.

Over my 35 years of living and researching females for the past 22 years, I think I’ve learned some valuable lessons that have made me into the best husband in the world. From what I’ve been through, you might think it would have pushed me away from seeing anything positive about being in a relationship, even more, getting married. I had to see and go through everything I’ve been through to get me where I’m at today and to get me to understand why I knew I could get married and be a good husband and do my part in creating a healthy relationship for the both of us.

I am married, but I have no control over my wife. She’s a grown ass woman and does what she wants, when she wants and how she wants. I respect her privacy and even though once again,she’s my wife, I do not go in her purse for no reason at all. I do not go through her belongings at all. I do not open her mail, I do not open her bed room drawers. Why do I say this, because this is where I’m at with mine. I feel that if you have to check on your spouse, you shouldn’t be with that person. I feel if you’re looking through their stuff, you’re looking for “a reason”. I have no reason and I don’t want to know nothing I don’t need to know. I’m in a relationship with the only person out of all the hundreds I’ve dated that I actually knew right away that this is the one. This is the one that will be my best friend, a wonderful wife, a great business partner, the one who can accept me for me being me and the person I’m growing into. I say this because life is growth, life is experience.

Being in a relationship is not for everyone. Some people fall in love with someone they were really just supposed to fuck, and some people fuck off someone they were supposed to fall in love with. You have to know which is which and what to do with it. We go through a lot in life, but by the time you hit 30 years old, a light should have turned on. At 30, a serious change in your life should have happened or will happen. I would say, for the past 5 years, things in my life have been very grown up. I’ve really had to deal with some “grown man shit” making some serious choices in life.

For you youngsters out there, take it from me, have fun with life. Don’t hound NO chick. If you’re a sexually active person, please make sure you always, always use a condom. Someone saying their on the Pill don’t mean she don’t have Herpes, Gonorrhea or some stank ass infection that will knock the cool out your walk. Use a fucking condom. You don’t want to find yourself paying child support to some money hungry hood rat stank biatch you fucked in the back of your car from a 1-night stand. You better know, if she’s okay with letting you go bare back, she’s just that type of chick and the dude who boned her yesterday sure didn’t use a condom either.

This is no way at all a bashing on females, but more of a insight & education for men to hopefully get a better understanding on how to release the grip and get more out of their relationships. Life is so much better when you’re with someone you know you can be comfortable with and the key to this is to rebirth the foundation of your relationship that started with a friendship. Having that friendship is the greatest part about being in a relationship because you know that your best friend is with you all the time.

Ladies, you gotta do your part in this too. Please don’t stay in a relationship with a controlling abusive dude. You have the right to walk away. No one owns you. You are just as guilty to blame if you continue to stay in that abusive relationship. Jealousy, abusive ways and controlling acts of a male or female are not acceptable. You gotta cut that lose and turn the page to the next chapter in your life and move on.

You can’t change anybody. We are who we are, and we are animal. Some things are instinct, some things are natural and some things are beyond our control. We are not to judge anyone. If someone makes a mistake, you just gotta understand that no one is perfect and mistakes happen, but was it a mistake or just human nature, we are animal. You can’t control your woman’s sexual appeal she has, so don’t trip when she grabs the attention of other people. Be lucky she chose to be with you in this time of her life. Life is what you make it, so relax and STOP TRIPPEN’ OVER PUSSY.

Mexicans & Blacks, We Can Do It

Why? Why do Mexicans hate Blacks?

I can’t pose the question “why do Blacks hate Mexicans cause I dont”. I can’t speak for all Blacks, but I will speak for me. This Hate is not natural, it’s taught. It seem to be more of a family tradition within the Mexican culture to dislike Blacks, and naturally refer to Blacks as Mayates, or Niggers and this is not something I’m making up but something that I’ve actually heard from several of my Mexican friends.

DAM, why am I even putting myself on blast to even write about this shit? I guess cause I care and I want this shit to stop. I ask myself why do Mexicans trip on Blacks so much when we share so much in common. We are not in competition in no way shape or form, and we both come from a culture that shares a history of wearing Dikies, Chucks, White Tshirts, Low Riders, Pit Bulls, we love thick females and most of all, both cultures are hard working people! Wow, with all this in common, would this make us jealous of each other, competitive towards each other, or should this bring us together and allow us to interact and communicate and share ideas? I wish it would bring us together. I’m gonna be honest and MAN enough to say it and some will disagree, but from experience and from talking to some of my Mexican homies, they have told me it bugs the fuck out of them to see their Sisters, Cousins, or even their Moms dating a Black guy! I ask why? Why, why, why is this an issue? Is it simply because he’s black? Times have changed and dating outside ones race & culture is something that cannot be controlled anymore. The more you try to hold someone back from feeding their curiosity, the more you push them towards it. You know its true! When I look at this simple shit, it really disappoints me to think that the major reason Mexican guys trip on Black guys is because of “females.” Yes, it’s a true fact, that most Black men like a phat ass juicy booty, and in the Mexican culture, females are packing some junk in their trunks, so brothas tend to gravitate towards them and on the flip side, (some) Mexican chicks have an attraction to Black guys. Whats wrong with that? NOTHING!

Now here is something that is true fact from my Mexican homie. This dude fucking loves Black chicks! He says that a lot of Mexican guys like Black chicks but they don’t step to them because they feel a little intimidated and in no way could they bring a Black chick home or be seen dating a Black chick due to the negative response they would get from their family and friends. He says fucking a Black chick is like a dream for a lot of Mexican guys. He agrees that some Mexican chicks have a nice ass, but he says most all Black chicks have a phat ass and he wishes the racial tension wasn’t there when it came to dating, but it is and he has chosen to say fuck it and made it clear to his family years ago that he’s attracted to Black chicks and that’s his choice. It’s a trip to hear this friend of mine speak on this because honestly when you meet him, you wouldn’t think he talked to Black chicks. I say this because if you can understand what I’m saying, he dosent dress Black to “attract Black chicks”, and he doesn’t “talk Black”. He dresses like a Mexican,talks like a Mexican, meaning hes not trying to be someone outside of being himself and I respect him for that. Let me break the ice and be the first person in the world to give all Mexican men the green light to step to Black females and get your mack on! Black females would love to hear from you, and you have nothing to worry about when stepping to them. Just be honest and step to them the same way you would step to any woman, we are all human. We all know, BLACXICAN babies are so cute! (that’s the way females say it)

So please EVERYONE, listen to me and follow my lead and understand that “IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO DO RIGHT”.

It’s 2011 and times have changed. Stop the hate and let’s be friends. Mexicans & Blacks Unite in 2011. I MADE THE FIRST MOVE, NOW IT’S YOUR TURN.

“I would love to hear your comments.”

Much respect,

Adultcon a Waste of Money

“This is soley my opinion based on my experience and personal research, but please believe me, it’s the 100% TRUTH!!”

“Are you ready for this? Are you ready to read a review that will be so raw that some of you will feel sorry for this person and most of you in the Adult Entertainment Industry will agree with me and applaud me for taking a stand and voicing my opinion.”

I am so sick and tired of people trying to come into the Adult Entertainment Industry by imitating a successful company and then giving a bad name to the Adult Industry. This so called Adult Convention going by the name ADULTCON, put on by this guy named Renaud West, in my opinion is nothing but a rip off and a waste of money! I’ve been working hands on in the Adult Industry for going on 12 years now and it’s always been a priority of mine to represent the Industry with Class. I say this because I personally find the Adultcon conventions cheesy, unorganized, boring, ghetto, and not at all of what the Adult Industry truly represents.

This so called convention claims to have moved up from renting out a Hotel Ball room, to 60,000 SqFt, to 100,000 SqFt at the LA Convention Center. I personally feel that moving up to 100,000 SqFt. was a move Renaud West did just for Square Foot bragging rights and at this last convention Sept 21-23, 2007 I did not see where this 100,000 SqFt. was needed or being used. The second you walk in South Hall, where the convention is being held, you can see in plain view that this is truly a small event being held in a hall that’s too big for it. I am not sure, but I think it was only about 3 or 4 rows and aprox about 50 yards deep. Trust me, this is nothing to compliment. There was so much wasted space that I saw. I would say 40% of this was the food area occupied with tables and chairs heavily spread out to take up space for eating and an additional 25% was more wasted space, leaving only aprox 35% of this for usable space for vendors. You do the math! Adult “CON”, if it walks like a Duck, quack likes a Duck, it’s a Duck!

This event cost $35.00 for daily admission or you can pay $35.00 on the first day of the convention and get free admission for the following 2 days. I would say this is the only positive thing about this event. However, if your bored enough to go back on the second day to see the same shit you saw the first day, it shouldbe free. This convention does not offer any special shows, seminars or events. All you do is walk in, and walk around a couple of times and BAM, you say to yourself, “okay I’m bored now”, then you find yourself saying “fuck that, I can’t leave already, I just paid $35 to get up in this shit, so I better just stay for a little bit longer”. This might explain the reason I saw so many people walking around looking bored out of their mind and disappointed on what they thought this so called Adult Convention had to offer. I must say I feel sorry for the people if any, who bought the Adult”CON” so called VIP ticket that cost $50 per person that bypassed you from waiting in the General admission line and also got you a Adultcon Tshirt or a dog tag key chain. I personally did not see anyone waiting in the General admission line but I did see people walking right up and buying tickets and going right in, in the same time it would take to walk up to the VIP registration counter to verify who you are, then go in. I’d be surprised to see anyone wearing that free tshirt or dog chain who doesn’t feel like a SUCKA!

The day I was at this recent convention like I said, held September 21-23, 2007, I saw this as a low attendance event. In my opinion, I do not see this event being anything to go home and compliment to your friends or family and word of mouth is everything, it’s the #1 source of advertising. Having Billboards does not mean anything except that you are advertising your product. The key to successful advertising is gaining a new customer and having that customer return. I personally don’t know anyone who has complimented this event and looks forward to the next one. I can honestly say that the only response I’ve ever heard about these Adultcon events have been negative. These negative responses have come from customers & vendors and not only about the convention, but very negative feed back on the owner Renaud West. I will be the first to say in my opinion that this guy is very rude, disrespectful and a horrible representative of someone doing business in the Adult Industry. I have never met anyone in this entire Industry who is so disliked. So, in return, what does this mean, people don’t support him, they don’t support his conventions. I’m sure by now, you can see it loud and clear that I, Goldie DeWitt & 1DOWN Magazine does not support or Endorse Adultcon, Renaud West, or any of his shows. For the years I’ve worked in this Industry, I’ve found myself becoming an advocate for the Adult Entertainment Industry and I take it personal when I see people like Renaud West trying to come through and suck it for it’s riches and casting a dark cloud over us. The Adult Entertainment Industry needs all the help and support we can get right now and we need people who care and people who care about it’s image inside & out.

I got too much pride & respect to run a Ad in my magazine for someone I don’t respect nor do I support. Renaud West offered me a FREE Booth at this convention but I declined his offer because as a vendor in the past, I was never pleased with the turn out of these conventions and personally I always felt it was just a plain waste of 3 days and even though the booth was free, I still had to pay

my staff & it cost a pretty penny to set up my Booth, ect. I personally know of others that Renaud West offers FREE Booths to, and they too have declined to return after attending in the past. Trust me, just cause it’s FREE, doesn’t mean it’s a good thing!

Walking around this convention (if you really wanna call it that) I saw some of the female Talent sitting behind their booths looking unhappy, pissed off & frustrated. Why? Well, at this convention, MOST ALL of the female models charge $5.00 for you to take a photo of them, even with your own camera! Now this is something that a lot of the customers don’t know about until they point their camera at a model for the first time and then they hear “it’s $5 for a picture”, then the customer says “but I have my own camera” then the models says “it doesn’t matter” then some customers say “that’s ok” then you have this going on all day and now you have a frustrated model and now you have a unhappy customer. Are you gonna return? Are you gonna speak positive on this event? I personally feel that the customer base that comes to this event is there to look and not spend. I can personally say I made very good money as a vendor selling my products at the Erotica LA Convention.

The Erotica LA Convention is the largest Erotic Show in the U.S. and this is the only true Adult Convention if you ask me. I’ve been attending Erotica LA since way back in the day when it was owned by its creator Ron Miller and now as owned by AVN. The customer base of the Erotica LA Convention seems to be filled with people who look forward to this event and come to spend money. It is truly amazing just how many people come out to this event in the 3 days that it’s here once a year. I mean this place is packed and I mean shoulder to shoulder with eager customers walking around snapping pictures of so many models, porn stars, & exotic dancers for FREE! The vendors come out with some serious state of the art booths that really make you feel like you’re in their world for a hot second!

To pay $35.00 for admission to Erotica LA is well worth it in every way, but if you want to attend this event for all 3 days, it will only cost you $75.00, and with the 3 days you will be attending this convention, you will be entertained by Sizzling Stage Shows special performances by Las Vegas sensation, Cirque du Soleil’s ZUMANITY and The John Stagliano’s Fashionista’s, A Tera Patrick Mistress Couture Lingerie Show, fashion shows, the “Hollywood Men” dance revue, tantalizing burlesque shows, and screaming “O” contests. It doesn’t stop there, Erotica LA also offers Educational Seminars and “How To” Workshops daily including The Art of Striptease, The Pleasures & Techniques of Oral Sex, The Art of Burlesque, The Art of Kissing, Tantric Journey, Threesomes 101, and Love Bondage.

This super grand Adult Convention happens only once a year and it’s well worth the wait and this is why this convention pulls in over 45,000 customers in 3 days and has over 300 exhibitors displaying the latest lingerie, clubwear, jewelry, shoes, books, cosmetics, toys, lotions, potions, and DVDs. So, if you are interested in attending this event as an exhibitor for the Erotica LA 2008 convention in June, please visit erotica-la.com or contact Bonnie Shapiro at (818) 718-5788 x103 or via email at bonnie@erotica-la.com.

Well, Renaud I’m glad this finally made it’s way to you and I’m thankful you took interest in reading it. Renaud, as you will remember walking up to me when I got to your convention and telling me to make sure I give you a very good write up, I want you to know I sure did! I really enjoyed writing this review on your event and if you ask me, I think I really did and good job and I hope you like it as much as I do. I think I did a great job in not using curse words, that was really the hard part! Oh yea, and the next time you wanna call yourself raising your voice at one of 1DOWN Representatives for giving out a 1DOWN business card as we were leaving, I’m sure you will think twice, cause that big mistake you made by stepping to me is something I guarantee you will wish you never did. Sorry if I scared you when I said “fuck you, you slimy two faced piece of shit” to your face, but it was the only thing that came to mind when you got in my face being rude. Being that you referred to me a “big guy with muscles”, I feel kinda bad cause my mom always told me don’t pick on people smaller than me. I got a good way of writing and I want to say thank you for helping bring out my best! No need to use my muscles when I got a bigger brain.

I must say, I always take photos at the events I cover and I also do a review write up, but I must say, this is the longest review I’ve ever written and oddly I didn’t take any photos cause I didn’t see anything that caught my attention. Luckily one of my staff photographers did get a picture of what he saw as the sexiest models at Adultcon. So rest assured Renaud, this review is complete with a couple of models from your event.

So, in closing I would like to say I give Adultcon 2 thumbs DOWN and never will I attend this event as a customer! You’re feed back is needed. I’m sure I’m not the only person who’s always wanted to say something about Renaud West and his events.

To those representing the Adult Entertainment Industry with Class, keep doing what you’re doing and bring your best, cause you represent me and I represent you!

Thank you for your support.

Blow That Shit Out

How was your weekend? Well, to be honest with you, mines was pretty fucked up, but hey I made it through and life is filled with ups and downs. No matter how much you put into anything, no matter how good you try to be at what you do, no matter what, “IT DONT MATTER”. I really find it amazing on how careless mutherfuckers are now a-days. I swear I am not supposed to being living in this era. I feel like I got misplaced in the time machine. I think I should be in an era when RESPECT was a way of living and CODE was a lifestyle. I would say that I am not the type of person who gives excuses and I don’t except them. Over the past few years, I’ve had some really punk ass situations that I’ve had to deal with from some real square ass mutherfuckers. It’s situations like these, if back in the day, I would have handled these issues with no second guessing, but it just ain’t that easy no more. Now a-days when some fucked up shit happens, you gotta just SWALLOW IT or BLOW THAT SHIT OUT. Believe it or not, those are the first 2 things you do, one or the other before you make a major decision that could effect the rest of your life. I’ve been pretty successful with being able to “Blow that shit out”, and get past it, rather than “swallow it” and let it marinate inside of me and poison me. It ain’t easy, but it’s the only choice that’s gonna keep me making the right decision. But it sucks when your just straight up sick and tired of some bullshit and you really wanna SMASH a mutherfucker who did some bitch ass DISRESPECTFUL shit. This is where I just wish you could step to a fool and just say “you fucked up, and I need you to man up and take this ass whippen like a man with out getting 1TIME involved”. Now that’s CODE, when someone understands that DISRESPECT is unacceptable and the repercussions are mandatory and you have to face it. But nope, times have changed and fools just think they can say “I’m sorry” and all is good. Hell NO, it ain’t that easy, cause now a-days if a mutherfucker is doing dumb shit, trust me, your not the first or the last person their gonna apologize to. So, now you gotta be the bigger person and just “BLOW THAT SHIT OUT” cause you know anything you do outside of that will directly land you in jail. So, you give the mutherfucker a pass, and it makes it look like you did nothing. So, you just find yourself waiting for the day to hear something happened to this ass hole so you can feel some joy of redemption. Life ain’t easy, so you better make sure you “BLOW THAT SHIT OUT“.Well, on a totally separate note, I would like to say thank you very much to everyone for all your support on the article I wrote on “AdultCON”. The response has been incredible and I look forward to the continued response as the article makes it way to everyone’s computer across the globe. If you still haven’t check it out, you gotta read it, it’s below this Blog.

Sunday was my all day outing day. I went to the DUB Car Show at the LA Convention Center to do some networking and get some photos. It was pretty cool, lots of people like always, and it was really cool that I had several people come up to me to compliment me on the article I wrote on AdultCON. They all had horror stories on their first visit and never returned. After walking around for a while I was ready to bounce but I told myself I had to get at least one pic with somebody before I left and guess who came walking by with security? Kim Kardashian and her sisters. She spoke and I did my best to my eyes at shoulder level cause her ass was literally JUMPING out of her skirt! Her sister Khloe jumped out and wanted to take a picture with me before I had to look like a dork and ask, so I was like cool. Khloe is a banger also!

Well, after we left the DUB show, I got a call from Heth over at Wicked asking me to come by the Wicked “Coming Home” release party if I was in the area, and I said for sure! The party was really cool and it was a trip to see all this real army shit like a real Tank, grenade launchers, bombs, and all kind of shit actual military shit they rented as props for the party. It was really a nice set up and a cool ass party and once again I would like to say thank you Heth for the invite!

Well, that’s about it for me, and thank you for reading all of this. In closing, I just want you to do your best and make the right choice when dealing with some fucked up shit, just remember to “BLOW THAT SHIT OUT”.

Much respect,

Goldie The Porn Director

Goldie DeWitt, Owner of 1DOWN Entertainment has been heavily involved in the Adult Entertainment Industry since 1996. Starting www.1down.com and a Agency with party girls for bachelor parties was how Goldie put 1DOWN on the map. Known for having some of the funniest, sexiest ladies in the party scene, Goldie’s girls were responsible for just about any and every bachelor party throughout the Inland Empire and stretching out to the greater Los Angeles areas. With the popularity of his girls reaching the porn industry, Goldie then found himself supplying girls to a few porn producers and this would soon open up new doors and opportunities. Working with so many Exotic Dancers, Goldie found himself inside the strip clubs a lot, but being able to see through all the tits & ass, Goldie saw something the Strip Club Industry really needed, a magazine! So, Goldie launched his very own 1DOWN Magazine to the Strip Clubs and they loved it. It’s filled with exclusive photos from all the club contest, fun interviews, exclusive photos from xxx porn stars featuring at selected clubs, and some of the best articles you could ever read, written by yours truly, Goldie. Now that 1DOWN Magazine has made it’s name part of the Strip Club Industry, Goldie still wanted to bring more, so in 2004 he rewarded the strip clubs in Southern California with his very own 1DOWN Strip Club Awards. This was the first time in history in Southern California that this has ever been done and the response was incredible! He was really letting nothing stop him from showing everyone why he is the KING of Strip Clubs!

Now coming into his 12th year, he says now it’s time to get bizzy! “I’ve always respected the Adult Entertainment Industry and I’ve always gave it my best and never once have I turned my back on it. It has been good to me and just like everything in life, you have ups & downs, but even the downs are better than most peoples ups who aren’t in this Industry. The key to survival in this Industry is simple, Never give up and Run your business and don’t let the business run you. I got into this Industry because I wanted to make money! I was no where near broke when I got into the industry, I just wanted to make more money doing something I would enjoy and something I could grow into and make a name for myself and make history! I wanna immortalize the name 1DOWN with Adult Entertainment. I want people to see me as a positive force, I want people to remember me and speak on me as they speak on Greek Gods many years from now when ever a mention of Strip Clubs or Porn is spoken. It’s important for me to protect my name and keep a positive spirit in myself and with my work. I want people to look forward to working with me and my company. I enjoy bringing joy to peoples life and seeing a smile on their face that I’m responsible for. I remember way back in 1988, 20 years ago when I first met Mr. Marcus, several years before he got into the industry and over the years, wehave stayed the best of friends, I was in his wedding and he was in mine. I just wrote him a check for staring in one of my movies and that made me feel good to be able to provide for a friend. Another long time friend that I knew before she got into the industry is Olivia O’Lovely who will be retiring in June 2008 and I wish her the best as she steps out and I step in. I also just shot Olivia in 1DOWN Unlocked #3 and it was another good feeling to write a check to a dear friend.

Starting 1DOWN Films feels like something I’ve always wanted to do but little did I know it. I enjoy being creative behind a camera. I’ve always had a natural talent for getting people to do fun, wild,, freaky ass shit on camera! When the Spearmint Rhino blessed me with the opportunity to provide them a Interracial line, I kinda felt like it was a dream come true. I was like wow, this is serious business now. It’s time to bring my “A” game. I’m so ready for this, that I almost feel like I wasted the last 12 years doing other stuff, but timing is everything and everything happens for a reason. Over the past 12 years I’ve learned a lot and with this knowledge I feel I’m a head of most people who are already in the porn industry. I look forward to bringing a new look to Interracial Porn. I say Interracial Porn because thats the way it’s titled, but honestly that’s not the way I see it. I just see a black guy fucking a white girl. My wife is White and when we have sex, we don’t call it Interracial Sex, we just fuck. When I go to a night club, there’s not a room for Interracial dating or dancing, but crazy thing about Porn, it’s kinda segregated in it’s own way, and it’s time some 1 say’s hey, let’s just fuck!

I am very attracted to the Gonzo world of adult movies. I look forward to bringing you hard fucking, sexy people and fun shit you will only see and expect from 1DOWN. I look forward to having very attractive white girls shoot with very attractive black guys and I will keep my titles simple such as 1DOWN Unlocked #1, #2, #3 and so on. I personally don’t see white chicks as slutty cock suckers and I don’t see black guys as thugs, & gangsters. No disrespect to the current titles out there now, it’s your world. It’s just not my flavor and my goal is to bring a new level of respect & class to the “interracial porn.”
