Sugar Or Salt Or Who Gives A Shit Because Grits Don’t Matter Enough To Have This Debate » VSB

VerySmartBrothas take on Grits. Yeah they can do that.

Here are four commonly accepted and agreed on facts about grits.

1. The base color is off-white2. It’s one of the few words where both the singular (grit) and the plural (grits) versions of it are fun to say (You could even argue that grit is a better word than a food)3. Many Black people and quite a few White people seem to have a raving and monomaniacal obsession with them4. They can be a good accompaniment to a meal if prepared and seasoned the proper way and/or placed with an appropriate meatHere is one more fact about grits that isn’t as commonly accepted and agreed on (but is still a fact)

Baltimore : Double T Diner

Baltimore. The Lord knows I have a storied history in this city.

It gave me two of the most important women a man can have in his life – a wife and a daughter.

It was the backdrop to my highest climb in corporate America in one of the nation’s top medical centers.

I was fired two times from jobs and one time from the biggest emotional commitments of my life.
