American Sex Kitten
She played catwoman in the 1960’s series Batman. Eartha Kitt
was one of the most memorable ones because her voice purrs with sensuality as if she were a human cat. So, she was a natural in that part. In fact, Halle Berry found it hard to fill the role that Eartha Kitt had played to perfection
when she starred in the movie “Catwoman. As her rumored lover Orson Welles
said, “She is one of the most exciting women in the world!”
Eartha Mae Keith was her birth name & she was a child of rape. Her life began on a cotton plantation in South Carolina in 1927. She was a multiracial child who had to endure a terrible childhood. Her career began as a dancer for the Katherine Dunham Company & she was a singer with a distinctive voice. It oozes with seduction & is a part of her sexual allure. Her cat-like eyes are almost as hypnotizing as her voice.
In the late 60’s, Eartha Kitt suffered a professional setback. She made an anti-war statement to Lady Byrd Johnson at a White House Luncheon. During an earlier period spent in Europe, she had become fluent in French & other languages. So,when she was professionally banned from performing in America, Eartha Kitt did shows overseas.
At 81, Eartha Kitt is alive & still sought after. She has appeared on Broadway as recently as 2004. I have included an all-american song that is one of her signature hits. Nope, it’s not “Santa Baby”,either! The song is “I’m Just An Old-Fashioned Girl”! If you’ve never heard it before, it’s in the same vein as “Material Girl” & “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend.” Eartha Kitt is the most unique sexual being in this stratosphere! I am in awe of her!
*UPDATE ON THIS POST: Eartha Kitt passed away on Christmas Day of 2008. RIP Eartha Kitt!

http://www.forbes.com/lists/2006/11/06women_Condoleezza-Rice_MTNG.htmlI You will have to click on to the video link in order to view it. I have also included a link to an article in Forbes magazine that listed 100 of the most powerful women in the world. The second woman on the list was Condoleezza Rice. As if you didn’t know, she is a 51-year old african american woman who advises George Bush regularly. She has a major role in his cabinet as the Secretary of State. This woman handles foreign affairs & has a very distinguished career. Her involvement in this administration may taint her accomplishments in the public’s eyes. In fact as this video demonstrates, she is detested by many because of the war in Iraq. But she has achieved a lot & has paved the way for Barack Obama to be taken seriously as a presidential candidate. After all, she has proven that blacks are able to play the game of politics just as well as whites.
The view of blacks may still be negative & there is much to be done if that is to be corrected. Whether you like her or not, Condoleezza Rice has elevated the views towards blacks worldwide. She is noted in Forbes magazine as being “America’s top diplomat“. Unfortunately, she was mentioned on MSNBC today as being a war criminal that should be prosecuted for violating the Geneva convention. It seems to me like Condoleezza Rice & Colin Powell were among the many that were used as proxies for President George Bush. If his administration should be prosecuted, then the president’s fate should be much more severe. Since I am not privy to all of the facts, I won’t be so quick to condemn her. I will commend her for obtaining one of the most powerful positions in the world. Believe me, she broke a lot of glass ceilings which benefited Hilary Clinton as well. Who knows if America is ready for a black or female president? I think that she prepared the country for that to be a possibility. In Condoleezza Rice, America got to see the potential for a black female president. For that, you have to give her props! The fact that those of african descent are making measurable progress is one of the greatest things about America!
