The Melanated Nerd Is Writing… 4 Bridges Over Chattanooga, Part 3 How Not To Be A Bitter Bitch

Chapter 3-4 Bridges Over Chattanooga

Walnut Street Walking Bridge, Chattanooga TN

4 Bridges Over Chattanooga…So Not Bridges Over Madison County or Is it Just Melanated?

This is the true story of wretchedness survival in a city in the dirty South. Gig City, Chatta- Boogie to those in the know, my hometown Chattanooga Tennessee. Follow-up of Part 2 when Wanda Grace Jr. comes calling for money, and Vance Carter stops in on his way back to Dallas.

This is the true story of wretchedness survival in a city in the dirty South. Gig City, Chatta- Boogie to those in the know, my hometown Chattanooga Tennessee. Follow-up of Part 2 when Wanda Grace Jr. comes calling for money, and Vance Carter stops in on his way back to Dallas.

Part 3 Continues…

“Never let bitterness be your default. How? You can say no. Never live with regrets. Never be ashamed of your success. And never forget to thank God for “favor”. Fuck the Haters, get your and keep your bag.” Wanda Grace Byrd, Everyday

(Perspective and voice, Jackie aka J-Boogie)

“Fussing With My Gangsta Grandma” is really a thing. This passion project podcast recorded in Chattanooga, then picked up by Revolt would launch and make Big Mama Wanda and me, J-Boogie, local and then regional celebrities. The rooftop of Hot Diggity not only served as the open air, Podcast, and Livestream studio with the backdrop of downtown, but became the de facto, current-COVID pandemic, local meet up for Sunday and weekday football, but as the city attempts to emerge from this pandemic the science abiding and risk-averse populace needed Dr. Fauci approved ventilation quenching the need for being social but still needing to be distant, this rooftop would become the local spot to watch football, and several shows streaming from 90-day Fiancé to Succession, to Insecure, Harlem, and most recently the Sex In The City reboot. Most people subscribe to many streaming services but this was a way for friends to reconnect outside of the home as we all craved adult companionship other than immediate families. Everyone was completely into “And Just Like That” when just like that… Big was dead. The entire bar erupts into shock disbelief and complete annoyance. With exclamations, “That’s why I don’t exercise.” With follow-ups, “You don’t exercise cause you lazy as hell!” Then a round of guffaws. I was enjoying the scene when all of a sudden I heard from the back room…drama building.

“What we are not fitting’ to do…” says Big Ma with a whole-body roll and a finger wag for emphasis.I turned my head slightly to see who my grandmother’s ire was directed to. And lo and behold, it’s my mother. “Little Grace” Brown Jackson Hewitt. Yes, the three separate last names were due to the fact that she’s been married a minimum of three times and added her husband’s names as trophies. She walked away from as many relationships as people, tossed aside like used Kleenex. The one that could’ve hurt the most and almost did destroy me was when she married her first husband but she did me a favor and left me in the care of her namesake, Big Mama, Wanda Grace.

Everyone knows Big Mama doesn’t take any shit, so why does Grace try her? It took Big Mama almost 25 years to get to where she is today and she was not going to let anyone get the best of her. Not even shady building inspectors, tax collectors, and family members like her own daughter who were simply on the take. She recognized “game” and had no tolerance for it, and didn’t care if you were related to her or not. This was going to be messy, and potentially loud. So whatever was about to go down, I was here for it! Then I looked around at the full tables of unsuspecting patrons. I had to quell my need for entertainment to not having my family and in particular, Big Mama, drag another black woman, in front of these paying white folks. That would be a little tacky.

Until we meet again…Presidential Box. AT and T stadium. My only daughter will stalk both of you online…

The Melanated Nerd Is Writing 4 Bridges Over Chattanooga

It really does take money to create content. But people don’t or won’t pay for anything that they’ll get for free.

I am making more of an effort to create exceptional content the past several months, but in order for me to continue to create this unique content, I’m going to need sponsorships and donations to remove the added pressure of financial strain to continue to create this content or hire someone or a team to create quality content.

So What Am I yammering on about?

Going Forward, I will be posting premium content to my person Felicia M. Baxter Webpage and you have to be a Patreon or subscribed member to view the entire post or even a short video.

Readers, you are not slick, you will have to pay. Good content comes with enlightenment and takes time. And it cost money if you want to keep it coming. So why wait, put 5 on it!

If I land paid large volume sponsorships, then I will publish for free and you will be the first to say, “I knew her when she did all this for free!” How cool would that be?

To my chagrin, I read an article in Today Times Free Press that reminds me of my Character, Wanda Byrd. Except Wanda is Black and a fictional character of my own design.

Chapter 1-4 Bridges Over Chattanooga

Walnut Street Walking Bridge, Chattanooga TN

4 Bridges Over Chattanooga…So Not Bridges Over Madison County or Is it Just Melanated?

This is the true story of wretchedness survival in a city in the dirty South. Gig City, Chatta- Boogie to those in the know, my hometown Chattanooga Tennessee.

Oh, who am I? The only female city worker with a natural Michael Jackson size Afro. I’m Jacqueline Byrd. Second oldest grandchild of big Mama Wanda Grace only child claimed by my biological father and known as J -boogie to my few close friends because I walk to a Beat in my head and will break out dancing without provocation. I am the youngest daughter, with 2 younger brothers in a family of nine. Born smack dab in the middle of nowhere. Being told by misguided relatives, racist guidance counselors, vice principals, and teachers of what I could not be. I never got to dream and strive for what I wanted to be as a kid. We lived in the Southside Projects on the end of the 12th and nowhere, dreams go to die here. We all were from different fathers and families and support. My older siblings were split between the juvenile criminal system and ended up with paternal relatives. My mother would marry my younger brother’s father before pulling up and moving to Atlanta leaving me with a neighbor until social service tracked down my father’s mother, Big Mama Wanda Grace Byrd. She was not too far away on the Mission Ridge side of town in her shotgun house. I went from dead dreams and derision to a house of Hope.

House of Hope

Big Ma wasn’t having it. She saw something in myself and another Cousin Abel, abandoned by her oldest son, “Trech”, that she didn’t see in her own children, and she wasn’t allowed to see in herself. She was determined to make a good life for all of us. She became a reading volunteer at the Chattanooga public library, so we were able to get out of the environment just for half a day at a time. We could roam the aisles and help the other librarians. Abel gravitated towards the art section and pottery, while I was drawn for other reasons to architecture and graphic design and electronics, all the while figuring out how I was going to apply that to either escape or survive staying in Hamilton County. Walnut St. Bridge, Chattanooga TNBecoming The City of LightsMaking Chattanooga the second city of lights came out of the idea when grandmom began to decorate the bookstore to emulate the NY stores during Christmas. She would never visit the city until later in her life just saw pictures in the books and magazines from the library and then bookstore. She would volunteer to decorate the neighboring record store and gift store on Frazier Avenue.

SARS CoV 2 aka RONA Math

From a dear Infectious disease doc, Alli Messina MD. Helps decode the news a bit. Love to all. 💕 If you want to know the Rt of SARS Co V 2 in your community: Go to: rt.live website. Alli Messina.

The Rt is the effective reproduction number of a virus. It is the number of cases of a virus spread per one person sick. (So, if the Rt value of a virus is 2, it means for every one person who has it, they will on average spread the virus to 2 people.). If the Rt value is less than one, the virus will (eventually) stop spreading. If the Rt value is over one, it will spread rapidly.

The Rt value of SARS CoV 2, with no social distancing and with no herd immunity is about 2.5-3. That’s huge. For the sake of easier math, let’s call it 3. Although 3 doesn’t seem like too much over one….remember that this is an exponential progression. So, if one person has COVID and spreads it to three people, then those three each spread it to 3, that’s 9, then those 9 each spread it to 3, that’s 27…..etc. It’s 3 to the POWER of 1, 2, 3…..and it gets big really fast. So ANYTHING over 1 will spread rapidly because you’ll be raising that number to increasing powers. Similarly, if the Rt is LESS than one, the disease will eventually die out in a population. How long it will take to die out in that population depends on how much below 1 the Rt value is.

The only things you can do to decrease the Rt value for a virus are: 1) social distancing/infection control (which means separating, masking, hand-washing) or 2) vaccination. We don’t have a vaccine, so we actually only have one option: the social distancing/infection control one.

The preponderance of data now shows that masking works. Well, ok… But if it works only if everyone wears them. Since the virus is spread most efficiently by breathing in respiratory droplets, the mask keeps your droplets contained. Period. Your mask protects OTHER PEOPLE. And THEIR mask protects YOU. Since “the population” is ALL OF US….you wearing a mask to protect other people means less virus in the community, and therefore less risk for you. But we have to think like a population rather than as individuals. Humans (and Americans in particular) are HORRIBLE at this. We cannot beat COVID with an individualistic attitude. That’s one of the reasons why the US has the most cases of COVID in the world.

It is fairly impossible to shut down all social interaction. But it IS possible to wear a mask. You should all be wearing a mask when you go out in public. No exceptions. Wear that damn mask. I will even make you one if you don’t have one. PM me if you need me to sew you a mask.

And, wash your hands.

And once there is a safe vaccine for SARS CoV 2, get it. Don’t hold your breath on this one, it’s gonna be a long time before we have one.

Thanks so much for breaking it down for me! TNFroisreading

TNFro Is Reading…Reflecting on the meaning of Juneteenth, Reading and commenting on the Emancipation Proclamation and the TX Diss

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-iia5p-1253d30

celebrating_freedom_dayakbw1.jpeg
The Emancipation Proclamation
January 1, 1863
By the President of the United States of America:
A Proclamation.
“Whereas, on the twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit:
“That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.”
How far we are from the totality of these words, still fighting for our right to exist and participate fully in American society. African Americans were bought here as slaves, forced to toil and build a country that hates us for it and refuses to back wages, reparations, restrict our right to vote, and any infraction real or imagined met out with an instant death sentence without a trial. Yet, we thrive and live to create in a world still trying to figure out if we have a place in it…ain’t that a bitch.

Episode 282 TNFro Is Reading Feeling Safe for 5 Minutes, Black Excellence, Trash TV and Regrettable Viewing, Quark’s Bar and Popular Culture Shenanigans

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-32yqk-1238a75

I recorded this episode and sent it for editing prior to the Uvalde School Shooting and right after the Buffalo Domestic Terrorist Shooting…I am back to “head-on-swivel” and not wanting to go outside. Some of that is cured by my Black and Deck Bug Zapper, but even being strapped I still am weary to trust any of ya’ll. 
In this episode I wax poetic about being home in VA and back in TN and feeling safe, that lasted 5 minutes, because Jose and they went crazy at the elementary school in TX…my reaction to the talking heads Abbot, Cruz, Rubio check out previous episodes 58 and 59.
I have watched lots of trash TV because I can’t stand this news cycle…And of course, I talk books because after all this is TNFro Is Reading…
StarTrek_DS9_QuarksBarVintageLogo-Womens_Rela...
My comments on pop culture seem lame now…but let me know what you think…
Always remember to be kind…
I used to scoff at people making this statement. Maybe because of its simplicity or maybe because it sounded more like an admonishment that I was being everything but kind. But then when I started investigating it for myself that’s when I realized, that I was confusing politeness with kindness. Politeness is a fake superficial manner in which required no investment no self-reflection. But being kind is an adjective, it is an action. If you are kind to yourself first it’s like exercise memory you will continue and will be kind to others. Let that sit with you for a while. I am being kind to myself. I’ll be kind to others. Very simple. Repeat.
Lean into the spirit of the New Year by counting your blessings, giving to others, and spreading happiness! I know I will!
It is the beginning of a New Year so be kind to your mind and others. Give love to receive love.
