Say It Ain't So Barack: The U.S. Gov't Boycotts Upcoming United Nations Conference On Racism?

So lemme get this straight: The United States of America runs to the United Nations to plead its case against Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction to gain support to stop the threat of terror. But now today, they're going to boycott an upcoming United Nations conference which focuses on stopping racism?

And why?

The United States has decided to boycott an upcoming UN conference on racism unless its final document is changed to drop all references to Israel.

The Conference Against Racism, to be held in Geneva in April, is a follow-up to the conference held in the South African town of Durban in 2001.

On Friday, a US delegation taking part in the preparatory talks in Geneva, said the draft resolution was unacceptable.

The US and Israeli delegations walked out of the 2001 meeting in protest against the resolution which likened Zionism - the movement to establish and maintain a Jewish state - to racism.

Israel and Canada have already announced they will boycott the conference, which is known as Durban II.

'Not salvageable'

According to Robert Wood, the US state department spokesman, the "document being negotiated has gone from bad to worse, and the current text of the draft outcome document is not salvageable.

"A conference based on this text would be a missed opportunity to speak clearly about the persistent problem of racism."

Wood said the US would not participate in the conference unless its final statement does not criticise any one country or conflict.

The US also did not want the document to take up the issue of reparations for slavery, which was another hot topic in the Durban 2001 conference.


Did you read that? If you clicked the link and read the entire article, you'd also see that this conference as been labeled as anti-Semitic by leading Jewish organizations. So lemme guess: its ok for the U.S. Gov't, to have a department within the FBI who to this day, still hunts Nazi war criminals on U.S. soil, but it's anti-Semitic to have a conference discussing racism because it may include talks of reparations, and Zionism?

Maybe I'm wrong, but didn't Jews receive reparations from Germany after the Jewish Holocaust?

Maybe I'm naive, but wouldn't it seem that the group of people who forever force people to never forget about what happened in Germany would be in full support of a conference which, well, could possibly use their story as a backdrop to discuss the injustice that racism creates all over the world?

But then again, could it be that there is some Jewish guilt surrounding the issue?

What are you talking about RiPPa? Oh lord don't tell me your racist ass is at it again?!!

Well, instead of me talking about it, I'll just throw to this next video. The video is of a speech given by Professor Tony Martin, a scholar and professor of African American History at Wellesley College. Oh yeah, and if you're wondering about his accent, like me, he's originally from Trinidad & Tobago.

The video itself shows the role played by Jews in the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade. Not only that, the introduction to the presentation shows the religious context used in rabbinic law (i.e. the Old Testament) to justify slavery, or what most refer to as the Hamitic Curse.

Now, I'll end this post by asking...

Do you think the U.S. Gov't is right to boycott this upcoming conference?

One of my favorite movies of all time is the movie "Life" starring Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence. The movie, like all great comedy movies, has it's share of memorable quotes or one liners. The title of this post just happens to be one of my favorites.

If you remember the scene -that's assuming you live on this planet - you'll remember that the above title, was in response to the questioning by the prison warden as to the father of his grandchild.

You see, he was white, and well, his once innocent daughter just so happened to have sex with a Black man. Well, considering that everybody in the prison was, well, of the Negro persuasion, it was expected that he seek to find out just who had "soiled" his daughter. Oh yeah, the movie is set way back in the days in a very racist Mississippi. Uh huh, so you could imagine the shock when he found out that his lovely daughter gave birth to a mulatto.

Well, this week, I was reminded of that scene by an email I received from one of my readers. You see, in the video, there was an interview with a young man who stepped forward to say that he belives that he is the father of Nadya Suleman's octuplets. According to him, they dated at one time and they were friends. He claims that she had approached him to donate sperm to her cause.

I don't know about you, but just having a woman come to my house and me giving her a donation of my jizz, without me going about it the conventional way seems kinda scary. I could only assume that they must have been really good friends. But hey, I guess that's what friends are for.

After watching the video, I thought it was cool how he said, that should it be determined that the kids are his - I'm talking all 14 kids - he would step up to the plate to trake care of them, and be in their lives. I can only assume that he meant to assume financial responsibility as well.

Rather noble don't you think - especially for a Black man, right? Oh yeah, he's Black, and after a pretty ugly custody battle for his oldest kid, which he lost, he said that there was no way he could or would let this opportunity pass him bye.

I'm sure many people are questioning his motive which is pretty sad in my book. But beyond that, I'd like to know how come the court of public opinion doesn't deem him to be a quack the likes of Ms. Suleman.

Any answers?


Could it be too much of a bad thing that a Black man steps up to take care of his kids?

That last question...

I'm only asking because I don't hear the media saying much if anything about this guy as they have this woman...

AMERICAN DRUG WAR: The Last White Hope

The War on Drugs has become the longest and most costly war in American history, the question has become, how much more can the country endure? Is this a war of convenience? Convenience being a well intentioned design for profit rather than seeking to truly eradicate the international drug trade?

There were about 6000 violent drug related deaths in Mexico last year by people who sought to control the drug market. Why so many? Why the desperate attempt to control said drug trade? Could it be that it would be quite profitable on the Mexican side of the border? And if it's that profitable for Mexican nationals, what does it say about the people who benefit from the trade in this country. Just something to think about since everybody is so concerned about where there tax dollar goes.

I mean, while there has been debate about closing our southern border, overlooked is the fact that Heroin has made a comeback in this country. Well, I could be wrong, but isn't it ironic that it has all the while we've been fighting a war in Afghanistan? Especially since Afghanistan is a major supplier on the world market?

What I do find funny is how you never hear about the crack epidemic. Sure I know its explosion on the scene in the 80's was devastating, and was largely termed an epidemic. There was much marketing of it being as such enough so to create new sentencing laws. I don't know if it worked because I still see crackheads around the way everyday. So now the new thing - well not really new - is methamphetamine; a drug which has been around for decades. Its primarily consumers are non-minorities, but it has become the new scourge of society. Well, if it's so bad, and its effect is felt mainly in the non-minority collective, how come its not termed an epidemic?

So I'm standing in line with Mrs. RiPPa at the Subway restaurant around the way. We're about the fourth ones back on line. There's this big dude in front placing his order while holding a cell phone to his ear. So quite naturally he's loud. Obviously he's placing an order not only for himself but also for somebody on the other end.

So I'm just minding my own business and trying not to pay attention cuz I'm not nosy like that. But when a muthafucka is loud as hell in a tight space you can't help but to hear the bullshit. So anyway, dude is going back and forth taking forever placing this order. It was then that I noticed there was this lady behind me sitting in a seat who was also with him. It seemed like she should have been the one placing the order because she pretty much had it down as to what her and big momma n'em on the phone wanted to eat.

It was quite obvious that all the brain damage was getting to dude as he was having problems multitasking by placing this order, talking on the phone, and trying to keep his saggy pants from falling. I could tell that sister girl who was with him sitting to the back of me, was getting a little perturbed, because big daddy was obviously kinda sloppy with his order placing skills. She let her frustration show when she loudly proclaimed, "He so damn country!"

As I heard that I kinda laughed to myself. After which, I turned to kinda glance at this woman and our eyes met. It was then that she repeated what she said out-loud as if it was just our private moment. Again she said, "He's so country!" But this time it was a light sorta whisper. I smiled, she smiled and we connected as I gave her the universal Negro head nod for confirmation. It was only then that I noticed that this woman had a mouth full of gold teeth. Yes, she looked like Master P. with a wig, but maybe a lil cuter, and a little darker.

It was then I said, "how you gonna call somebody country when you have a mouth full of gold teeth?!!" Of course I said that to myself; I was just trying get a sandwich for dinner, and I wasn't in the mood for an argument; plus dude was bigger than me. So yeah, I kinda said that to myself and laughed about it in my head.

Wanna hear something funnier? After we got our sandwiches, we walked out of the restaurant to walk back to the car. As we did, I was met head on by a dude shaking some change in his hand. He looked me dead in the face and asked, "Say bruh, can you spare some change cuz I'm trying get some money for some food to eat?" To which I replied, "Sorry homie, I can't help you." Real quick like that I kept it moving.

As I got to my car, it was then the face of this dude came to me. And you know what? Dude had a mouth full of gold teeth! So now I'm thinking: how you gonna be bagging me for money with a mouth full of gold teeth? I mean, hell if you're that hungry, seems like you'd just get one of your teeth knocked out and be able to eat for a week at least. I actually told that to my wife as we drove off, and she said I was mean. I don't even wear jewelry myself so I thought what I said to her was a natural thought, no?

Recounting the whole episode from Flava Flav's sister in the restaurant to my man Crunchy Black from Three 6 Mafia panhandling trying to hustle me for money, that this is the south, and they pretty much all have gold in their mouth. I mean cats in Brooklyn New York when I lived there had gold fronts too, but it wasn't universal, and it damn sure wasn't like everybody had them either. It was then once again I was reminded that I live in the south. Yup, I am pretty much a country boy now I suppose.

As I sat in my house eating my Subway sandwich, it was then that I felt bad for not giving the guy any money. Yup, I felt guilty because I missed an opportunity to help someone down and out. I almost got back in my car to go back and find dude, and break him off a few dollars. It was then I realized that I would have been hustled by a country boy. Imagine that. Me the city slicker getting scammed by a brother from the dirty south.

Well how you know he was hustlin you RiPPa?

Well hell, there was a McDonald's restaurant right across the parking lot from Subway. Shit, if that guy was really hungry like he said he was, seemed like he would have been in front of McDonald's jingling change because they have the dollar menu. Surely he had at least a dollar. The nerve of him trying play me for a $5 foot-long Subway sandwich. What ever happened to the saying beggars can't be choosers. Oh well, I guess things are just different down here in the country.

You know, I've always been amazed at the people who do stuff and blame it on their consumption of alcohol. Usually said "stuff" is considered embarrassing, and hence the reason to not own up to it. We've all heard the stories of the people who wake up in strange and unknown places, next to people they barely even know. Waking up next to a semi-total stranger has to be scary especially when you don't even remember how you got there.

I woke up in my draws in my bed, alone, and couldn't remember how I got there. Thank God it was my bed and I recognized where I was. If it was some unknown bedroom that would have freaked me out. Yup, and I almost immediately would have been checking for scars just to make sure I had all my internal organs. Trust me, you don't want to wake up to find that you're missing a kidney, after a night out on the town.

My wife and I went to a club last Saturday night. We were there to celebrate her sisters 30th birthday. Its been a long time since I've set foot in a nightclub, but from the looks of it, not much has changed. Even though, this was my first time in this particular club, it was as if I'd seen all these people in a club before. There were a lot of family and friends, and friends of the family there, celebrating with us, and it was cool.

Yup, nice atmosphere there at club "Classic Soul" that night. I was apprehensive before even going because I had never ever heard of the place. All I was hoping on the way there, was that it wasn't gonna be a ghetto ass hole in the wall joint. So pulling up in the parking lot and seeing two Bentley's as well as other luxury vehicles eased my mind. I mean, you know how some fools can get up in the club, right? Shit, had I seen some raggedy ass looking rides with spinners and shit like that, we probably would not had even stopped. Hell, I ain't be got no weapon!

Our table was stocked with liquor, and there was no going to the bar. Yup, none of that $10 drink shit, and when you're on a budget, throwing money away at the bar is foolish. After exchanging pleasantries with the kinfolk, I noticed that there was a gallon sized bottle of Bacardi Dark on the table. I happen to enjoy dark liquor as opposed to anything clear, or white as they call it. And since this was the darkest on the table, I went for it. I made one drink, chased it with pineapple juice and was feeling good as I was checking out all the people in the place.

At the end of that drink, almost on Que, the DJ played that single lady bullshit anthem, "Put A Ring On It", and the women lost their minds. Clearly, there were a lot of single women wishing they had a ring on their fingers in the place that night. They all rushed to the dance-floor. But lo and behold, who stole the show was this gay dude who pretty much did the entire routine from the video. People were losing their minds, and rolling in fits of laughter because of this guy. He looked like a broke Justine Guarinni with moves like "Leroy" from the old TV show "Fame".

The club was one of those 25yr old and up type of clubs so they played a nice mix of grown folks music. It was when they threw on some old Chicago style steppin' music that my wife and I got on the dance-floor. Uh huh, RiPPa knows how to get down. We danced our asses off, and had a great time just the two of us acting like we were the only people on the dance-floor. See, alcohol will make you do something like that. It makes you feel good, and makes the time spent just a little bit better than normal.

So after getting off the dance-floor, we went back to our table and I fixed a second drink, mixed and mingled with my kinfolk, and did some more people watching. Oh yeah, I saw that some women still have stank attitudes and act like all eyes are on them in the club. Sorry lady, it's not that you're cute, it's the fact that you're half naked, and it's cold outside. I had one more drink and the next thing I know, is I'm in my draws waking up in my bed by myself. You see, I remember fixing three drinks, but my wife tells me that after the third, her cousin fixed me like three more, and she had to stop me from drinking and take my ass home because I was a hot mess.

She said I was happy, but sloppy drunk, and almost fell in the club a couple of times. The thing is, I don't remember a damn thing past the third drink. No joke. She told me that she was afraid because I was so fucked up and kept talking about busting somebody in the head. Who I don't know, nor neither does she. She said it was at that point that she had to drag me out of there just as two other dudes started an argument among themselves. She said she had a hard time trying to buckle me in my seat-belt. She said that I threw up all over myself, and in the parking lot next to the car.

I think she said I also threw up on the way home and tried to jump out of the car as it was still moving. After hearing all of that, I was embarrassed as fuck. I was more so worried about how I made her look in the presence of family and friends. She said that I didn't do or say anything off the wall, nor did any of them see me puke. Or see her pick me up off the floor in our house when she walked me into our doorway. Or see her undress my ass, and throw my clothes into the washer. Nope, none of them saw that and I am glad they didn't. I felt like shit literally after she told me how the 3.5 hours we spent in the club ended. Which is sad because I only remember barely half of it.

Can we truly blame alcohol for our actions? To some it might sound like an easy cop out, and just some other cliche bullshit. Another well known cliche is that a drunk man tells no lies. That said, it is believed that alcohol releases the true character of individuals when they're drunk. But when sober, most people couldn't be caught dead doing some of the shit they do when drunk. Lets face it: alcohol lowers your inhibitions. Yes it does. It puts you into another world. What world I don't know, but its another world and I've been there.

Sadly, this episode didn't involve sex...

Yes he was right when he said that in this country when it comes to the discussion of race, we're a nation of cowards. I agree with him 100% and this following clip just goes to show exactly what he means....

Did you notice how the audio problems in the broadcast started whenever Michael Eric Dyson spoke truth to power? Coincidence maybe, but I thought it was rather ironic.

Pat Buchanan was representative if what's wrong in America when it comes to discussions on race. He's an old tired White man set in his ways who fails to own up to the reality of racism.

People like him are always quick to point the finger and talk about personal responsibility, but act like their shit don't stink. It's people like him in the old guard who are in the media (or behind the scenes) who are responsible for perpetuating stereotypes.

Did you notice how he deflected from the issue by throwing daggers at the ills that plague the "Black Community"? Did you notice how he said that Black people "Self Segregate"?

It's always blame the victim...

"Less women would be raped by men if they didn't dress as provocative as they do."

This is why as a nation we'll NEVER move forward on racial issues. Sure things are better than they used to be. But for the most part the problem is dishonesty surrounding the subject.

So now, lets see how many of you are brave enough to say he was wrong.

Do you think Obama is losing sleep over this cartoon monkey, that the Jewish Zionist Rupert Murdoch owned New York Post put out yesterday? Man please! As long as Obama ain't trippin, RiPPa could give a rat's ass.

But RiPPa you are always the one around here pointing out racism and all that shit?

That's just it. I've pointed out enough of this shit that none of this should surprise you. I told you people a long time ago that White Supremacy is the enemy. Its not "White People", but instead the concept or system of WHITE SUPREMACY.

But RiPPa this cartoon was offensive and they called your boy Barack a monkey!

They been calling Black people worse than that for years, and RiPPa isn't even phased. Lets be real: racism is nothing new. Matter of fact, every time I type the name Barack Obama as I write a blog, these red squiggly lines come up under the text. Thats right, even Spell Check is racist. You see, RiPPa understands the system which is motivated primarily by the fear of a Black planet. If you think I'm full of shit, do some research. I think you'll find that there are more of "us" than there are "them". Having said that, its understandable as to why there's a need for the destruction of monkeys.

Do you think the release of the movie "Planet Of The Apes" in 1968 was an accident? I wasn't even born in that year, but I know all to well how volatile it was with the advent of social activism, given the climate of the country at that time. Think about it: looking back on the era of the 60's its no wonder why there would be a movie released where MONKEYS ruled the world as thought by the few White men who crash landed on the planet.

If you remember the movie like I do, you'll know that in the end, everything took place on the very planet as we know it and not some other planet as was thought. So you see, with 2042 approaching, its no coincidence that monkeys are being killed in the media publications or in real life. Have you been paying attention to the dead silence from animal advocate groups like PETA and the Humane Society? Guess what? The answer to that question lies in the very first sentence of this post. I suggest you go back and read it and take some time to think.

You people can go ahead and march, protest this cartoon all you like. The truth is, none of that would matter or change anything. Hell, even Don Imus got his job back. Sure it may call attention to the bullshit cartoon that was printed. But what about the real life monkeys like Oscar Grant and others who have been gunned down by the cops. Where's the march for the innocent destruction of real life monkeys? Hell, the last time Al Sharpton led a protest against the acquittal of the cops who killed Sean Bell -- you know, that one monkey who was shot 50 times, and killed by the police? -- nothing ever came out of it. They're still shooting monkeys everyday. And when they don't, they just throw them in prison and parade them every weekend on MSNBC's series "Lockup" like its a day at the zoo.

Its been said that when America catches a cold, minorities get pneumonia. The current economic meltdown is just another example of this. Aside from the unemployment rate for minorities being significantly higher than any other racial demographic -- currently the unemployment rate for Blacks hover at around 12%, and 9.2% for Hispanics while the National figures are about 7.2% -- one can only expect the ripple effect to carry over into the housing sector.

With foreclosures at a record high, one can expect minorities to feel the brunt of the fallout as usual. In the third quarter of 2008, more than 700,000 Americans faced foreclosure -- a new and troubling record.

Having said that, take a look at this...

Yes folks, that was depressing. I've never been evicted from anywhere I've ever lived before, but I can assure you that getting kicked out of an apartment is nothing like being evicted from your home. A home for most, is the ultimate investment. For many, its the culmination of hard work in an attempt to grab a piece of the American dream. Sadly, the dream has become a nightmare for many all across this great nation of ours.

So who's to blame? Well, let the uninformed tell it, its the fault of individuals who sought to live beyond their means. That's right, once again, its the fault of all those undiciplined minorities and their inability to pay their bills. Yup, never mind predatory lending; that whole idea is a myth. That's right, according to "them", the idea of banks motivated by greed as they sought to plunder a certain demographic is a lie. Yup, that never happened according to them.

"According to the 2007 Annual Minority Lending Report, about 47 percent of Hispanics and 48 percent of Blacks who purchased mortgages in 2006 got higher-cost loans, compared with about 17 percent of whites and Asians. The predatory lending that targeted minority communities has now resulted in “extreme geographic concentrations of foreclosures,” said Jason Reece, a senior researcher at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity.

Cities like Baltimore, Maryland, have initiated lawsuits against lenders for targeting Blacks with sub-prime loans. Two-thirds of the foreclosures related to Wells Fargo in that city were in census tracts where Blacks account for 60 percent of residents."


So this week Barack "Super Nigga" Obama is back on the campaign trail to push the idea of legislature to aid families caught up in the Mortgage Crisis shit storm, by way of a $50 billion rescue & prevention plan.

""Our focus will be on using the full resources of the government to help bring down mortgage payments and to reduce mortgage interest rates," Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said last week as he announced the administration's financial stability plan."- SOURCE

According to Realty Trac, there were 2.3 million foreclosures in 2008 alone. Estimates point to another 2 million this year alone. That's right, things are bad out here, and something needs to be done. The irony of all of this is that Obama will be announcing details of his plan in Arizona. So what's so ironic? Well, its the state that leads the way in home foreclosures, and just happens to be the home state of Senator John McCain. To me, I find it very appropriate that Obama is using this state as the backdrop for his announcement. This way his detractors -- namely republicans on Capitol Hill -- even in their defiance, will be put on front street.

One can only wonder how they are going to spin this at the end of the day. If were up to me, there would be at least a six month moratorium on foreclosures. Especially for the banks who are now surviving on tax payer dollars. I think its only right in an attempt to give people some breathing room as they get themselves together. But hey, that's just me, and I know to many out there, this would be too much like socialism.

RECOMMENDED READING: Communities Foreclosed

QUESTION(S): Who do you think is at fault for the Mortgage Crisis? Do you think it's the fault of individual home buyers or bankers? Do you believe the gov't has a hand in the current situation? What do you think, if anything, the gov't should do about the problem?

Tuesday, February 17, 2009


Here's a couple things in life that I just don't understand. Actually, there are many things in life that I don't understand. Maybe in your commentary after reading this you can share with me what you've learned here today. Hopefully you do learn something, or maybe you'll be able to help me out.

Why is it that after you sit on the toilet and take a dump, before you flush, you always have to look at the turds? I mean really?!! Why do we always look at the turds? What do we expect to see? A $100 bill? Lottery tickets? What??!! I've been doing that "looking at my turds before I flush" stuff since I was potty trained, and I don't understand why.

I mean, when I was a kid, it was cool to look at them and try and see the stuff I ate. You know, like pieces of corn and stuff like that. But I had no idea that at 38yrs old, I'd still be doing it, and doing it unconsciously. And don't gimme that "RiPPa you're just weird" stuff either. I know just as well as you do, that you look at your turds before you flush. Now I could understand looking at your turds after having to put teeth marks into your toilet bowl in an attempt to force out a log or two. But after every dump? And speaking of turds and dumps, I think I am about to face my biggest challenge as a parent thus far: POTTY TRAINING. Yup, my wife recently bought a new potty for our now 15 month old. The damn thing even talks to you when you flush! When did they start making stuff like that?!!

Honestly, I'm scared and nervous about this whole thing. Why am I nervous? Well, as anxious as I am to teach her about life and stuff, I'm just not the same about the whole using the potty thing. The reason why? I don't remember being potty trained. I could remember some stuff from my formative years; hell I still remember learning Spanish from Sesame Street. But the thing that bugs me is that I don't remember being potty trained, and as a result, I'm afraid that I might fail with my daughter. When you think of it, that's a lot of pressure as a parent. Nobody wants to have to be the parent of that stanky booty little boy or girl, when they're in pre-school or kindergarten.

The last thing you want is a bunch of other people's kids running up to you telling you that your child shit on himself/herself when you show up to pick him up for the day. I mean, its bad enough that the teacher has to explain why your kid is wearing that ugly ass pair of shorts that doesn't even match, or look anything like what you dressed him in for school that day. Yup, that's bad enough, and then you have to act all nice to your kid and make him feel like it was just an accident so as not to traumatize him/her with the thought of him/her being a failure, for being the stinky booty kid. Trust me, nobody wants to be known as the stinky booty kid.

Matter of fact, I'm sure that most violent crimes in our country are commited by one time stinky booty kids. Usually we hear stories or explanations for criminal behavior being chalked up to a bad childhood. We hear about dysfunctional families, abusive situations involving children, poverty, absent fathers etc. But we never hear about the stinky booty kid, and how he or she was teased in school. And I'm sure everybody remembers that one kid who smelled like pee everyday. See what I'm saying? Where are those kids now? Hopefully most of them are probably in prison after having been caught. But there are many of them who are still running around right now free as a bird; free to wreak havoc on the lives of many. Hell some of them are probably even blogging and you don't even know it. Next time somebody shoots up their place of employment, hopefully you'll rememebr this blog.

So you see, this is why I'm nervous about my daughter. I don't want her to grow up to be that stanky booty girl like her father once was. If she does, it would mean that as a parent I failed. Never mind my occasional shit stain as an adult. The ultimate failure as an adult is being the parent of a stank booty child. A child who has to continue that vicious cycle of shame and degradation. Which is really sad when you think of how much easier it could be if they just learned how to wipe their ass without having to be taught by another person. You know, kinda like how learning to walk was natural?

Hopefully my baby girl gets it down really quickly. Hopefully my wife never had the problems I had growing up and would serve to be a better teacher than I could ever be. Hopefully my baby girl is content to not look back at her turds when she gets off the potty or even try and pick them up. I don't remember being potty trained as I mentioned before. But I vaguely remember getting a beating for picking up my turd after sitting on a cold white metal bowl one time.


Look, I'm gonna get straight to the point on this one: Fuck you John McCain! Yup, there it is, I said it and I meant it. Can you believe the nerve of this guy? After the Stimulus Bill was passed on Friday, this is what he had to say on Sunday...

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said Obama was off to "a bad beginning," out of step with the vow of bipartisanship both men made after Obama beat out the Republican presidential nominee for the White House in November.

"It was a bad beginning because it wasn't what we promised the American people, what President Obama promised the American people, that we would sit down together," McCain told CNN's "State of the Union With John King."


Bad start? Really? Out of step?

To quote the Great American President Abraham Lincoln...


Ok, well I'm not sure if that was a direct quote of his, but I'm sure this is what he would think after hearing what John McCain had to say. The fact of the matter is that Barack Obama, has done nothing but go out of his way, to court these republican assholes, to support the passage of this legislature. He fuckin met with them on more than one occasion, and even had some of them come to his crib for cocktails for crying out loud.

I don't know about you, but where I come from, when you invite people to your house for drinks, its considered a nice positive gesture. So how in the hell can this guy say that Obama went back on his campaign promise of bipartisanship is ridiculous. Hell, the majority of republicans on the Hill didn't even support the bill after concessions were made for their votes. But no, these pricks are not happy.

"The fundamentals of our economy are still strong"- John McCain

Remember when he said that last year in the middle of the economic shit storm? Remember when his then campaign chair Phil Gramm said that the American public were a bunch of whiners about the economy? Remember that shit? What I'd like to know, is if John McCain were president, how and what would he propose as the fix to this big mess. Thats what I'd like to know. So far I've heard nothing but a bunch of bullshit ideological same old talk from republicans on this. Hell, even here on this site, its as though they've all crawled out from under a rock to voice their discontent.

What's even more disheartening, is that they themselves can't offer a solution to the problem, but rather identify "problems" as they see it with what they have termed the "Spending Bill". Somebody tell these people that you gotta spend money to make money. Not only that, please tell them to at least offer us solutions rather than criticisms.

I mean, this is a Bill that is designed to jumpstart the economy on the demand side of things while investing in our future -- something that should have been done a long time ago -- but yet they're bitching about not being invited to the party. Hell, where were they when over a trillion dollars was spent in Iraq & Afghanistan? If you wanna talk about spending and fiscal irresponsibility, why don't we talk about the money wasted in Iraq all based on a lie.

I didn't really wanna write or speak upon the Chris Brown "alleged" beatdown on Rhianna. But I have two teenage daughters so I can't help it; its all they've been talking about. As a matter of fact, the 14yr old who is often quite distant and in her own teenage world, came to me last night after I picked her up from the beauty shop, and it was the first topic out of her mouth for discussion.

I thought it was over, but this morning my wife brings it up after having a discussion with the girls. In case you didn't know, Chris Brown and Rhianna are two Grammy Award winning recording artists who at one time were dating. In the pic above they're pictured in happier times.

You see, our girls are huge Chris Brown fans. So much so, that when he started dating Rhianna they were pissed. Teenagers I tell ya. Heck, last summer they would playfully argue among each other as to which one of them were going to marry him. To which, they had my blessings, as well as my wife's. For the last 3yrs, they both have come to understand that Chris Brown is the only celebrity they were allowed to date. He's was clean cut and seemed like the good old American Black kid, sorta like Micheal Jackson before the monkey, and all that other crazy shit.

As much as I hate seeing my girls grow up and swoon over boys, I must say I was acceptable of it being Chris instead of the tattooed mosquito known as Lil Wayne. There are a few other celebrity guys they have crushes on, but I've always steered them clear of them, as they looked like prison material. But not Chris he's 19yrs old. He could come to my house, pick them up and take them to the prom, or even maybe a movie or something like that. So quite naturally, the latest news surrounding him has our daughters a little disturbed. As a parent I must say, I am a little perplexed about this as well. Not that I'm all into celebrity gossip or anything. I'm only interested because my daughters are. And lets be honest, as much as I hate it, they will both be dating soon.

So what do I teach my girls when it comes to men and conflict resolution and dating? I've taught them just like my parents taught me: KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF! Its that simple. Sure you can talk shit, or listen to someone talk shit about you, but you keep your hands to yourself. Well, unless they put their hands on you first. After which, you have the right to defend yourself. Other than that, I was always taught not to be the one to strike first, or the aggressor. I might sound pussy, but it kept me in line as I grew up until I was grown.

You see, it wasn't until my first marriage that I ever had a physical altercation with a woman. Sure I've had arguments and shouting matches with previous girlfriends, but never was there anything physical. Hell, like most guys, it was reinforced that boys do not hit girls as I grew up. But my parents screwed up and forgot to tell me that their are exceptions to the rule. In other words, they never told me that the world was full of crazy bitches who do step out of the line of being a ladylike. You know, the females who would "force" a man to get beside himself? You know the type, right? The women who would talk smack, and wouldn't hesitate to slap the shit, out of a man first? Yeah, those women. My parents never told me about them.

So what was I supposed to do? Was I supposed to walk away? I mean, I didn't know, because like I said, my parents failed to tell me this could happen. Sure some of you may say I was supposed to walk away because any man who hits a woman is weak. I'm sure some of you might think that. But how does one walk away when growing up you're taught that if you come home after getting your ass whooped in a fight for not fighting back, you're gonna get a beating from your parents? Hell, even as I was growing up I saw parents dragging their kids down the block and forcing them to fight other kids. So you tell me, how do you walk away?

See, this is that bullshit double standard way of raising kids. We tell them when they're kids that if someone hits them, they're supposed to hit them back. We also tell them: boys aren't supposed to hit girls. I'm speaking from a male perspective and point of view of course, but what are you supposed to tell a girl specifically as she grows up? I'd like to know what you would tell a girl other than the obvious. Which is: love isn't supposed to hurt, and if a man has to put his hands on you, he doesn't love you. In retrospect, just that line is kinda funny when you think of how your parents, after beating your ass for something you weren't supposed to do would say, "I did it because I love you." Ain't that a trip? Having thought about it, isn't it easy to see how some people grow up confused?

So what do I teach my girls? I teach them that there are men out there who are not like me. I teach them that there are some men who do not think before they act. I teach them that there are some women who feel the need to lash out physically, but there's really no need for it. I teach them that any physical reaction be it man or woman, in most cases, happens to be a sign of the inability to communicate. Yup, that's what I teach them. Above all, and most importantly, I teach them about love.

Kiss me, and then I'll kiss you back

"I have an urgent need, unemployment and homelessness, a very small vehicle for my family and I to live in," she said. "The housing authority has two years' waiting lists, and we need something more than the vehicle and the parks to go to. We need our own kitchen and our own bathroom. Please help."- Henrietta Hughes (At Fort Meyers Town Hall Meeting)

Move over "Joe The Plumber" there's a new sheriff in town, and her name is "Henrietta The Homeless". That's right, folks, she is the latest political meme. Now, I'll be honest, when I watched the Obama Town Hall meeting, and saw her speak, it brought tears to my eyes. As a person who has worked with homeless people, and being briefly homeless myself some years ago, it was moving. When she spoke of living out of her car and having to sleep at parks, it hit me.

Obama when he spoke to her mentioned that there are many people like her. And you know what? He's right. Given the current mortgage meltdown, and housing crisis, homelessness is just one part of the ripple effect. What's sad to know is that in the Stimulus Package debate, not much has been said about doing anything about foreclosures. Oh well, maybe it was considered pork after Obama pledged $50 billion towards it and it got removed in the Senate.

The good news is that Henrietta, who had been living out of her pickup truck with her son, had a place to sleep last night. She was allowed to stay at a home by Chene Thompson, wife of State Representative Nick Thompson, who heard the homeless woman’s pleas for help to President Obama before a local and national crowd. I don't know how long she'll be allowed to stay there; surely not forever. But I do hope that something is done for her more on a permanent basis. I'd like to think that if "Joe The Plumber" could become somewhat of an icon for conservatism, and reap the rewards of his then new found fame, that this woman can as well. It would be a definite blessing especially since she couldn't vote because she had no address.

In a followup interview...

Hughes says she was not able to vote on election day because she does not have an address. She said without a vote, she prayed that Mr. Obama would win. “I said, ‘Lord please have mercy on Mr. Obama.” and the Lord did so.

But, you wanna hear something funny? There has already been talk about her being a plant at the meeting, and her story being fake. Yup, RiPPa reads a lot of shit online and runs into the stuff he expects to hear when it comes to any minority in relation to Obama. Here's a snippet from a comment from over on the great Michelle Malkin's site...

"You know you cannot just “enter” an Obama town hall meeting. They give out tickets in advance. Who gets the tickets? People who stand in line and wait. Who tells people when and where Obama will appear next? Certainly not the Secret Service who has to protect this man. Not the MSM, who are too busy telling us how great he is without asking any critical questions.

Sooooo… how does a 61 year-old homeless woman who’s living in a pickup truck with her son JUST HAPPEN to get a ticket so she can VERY PUBLICALLY ask Prez. Obama for a HOUSE? Anyone? Who pushes her up on stage? She’s right at the front of the crowd. Did she just happen to get a seat there?

Now, within moments of this happening, it’s trumpeted all over the news. AND, surprise, surprise, the wife of State Representative Nick Thompson, Chene Thompson JUST HAPPENS to have a spare house worth $150,000 lying around, so she GIVES it to this unemployed, homeless, living-in-a-truck woman. They’ve been homeless for “more than a year”, which coincidentally, predates the current housing and banking crisis by quite a while. How did they learn about the “Obama Town Hall and Tent Revival”? Were homeless people simply rounded up? Did someone pre-canvas the area in search of “great, tear-jerking stories”? Of all the people in the audience, SHE’S one of the ones Obama chooses to ask a question?

BTW-the taxes which will be charged on this “free house” will bankrupt the poor woman. Taxes are levied based on the home’s assessed value, not on the basis of it being a “free gift”."

Yup, that was the talk over on Michelle's site and probably as was among right wing conservatives across the country. You know how those people are all about pulling up yourself by your own bootstraps. Yup, even them are unaware of what's going on in this country right now. One only has to look to the Republican Senate to see how out of touch they are with reality. Yup, only 3 of them voted for the Stimulus Package.

Oh well...

moving along, it was also inspiring to see that kid Julio Osegueda pose his question to Barack. The 19yr old kid was energetic and enthused almost to the point of being scary. No joke, at first when I saw him I thought he was on something. But I guess being able to stand before Barack Obama, and ask a question when you have the day off from McDonalds where you've been working at for 4yrs, while trying to better yourself by going to college would do that. If anything his issue with education should be an inspiration to other young people to be a part of the political process. But as with everything Obama, there are haters.

More comments from Malkin's site...

"On a second, double-snort, the last guy who gets to ask a question JUST HAPPENS to be a 19-year-old kid of Hispanic descent who’s going to Edison State College (free tuition perhaps for in-state students?) and has worked at McDonalds for FOUR AND A HALF YEARS. By my math, he started working there when he was 14! Florida child-labor law infraction, anyone? Now, having worked at McDs several times in my past I can say that they DO offer health care plans. You have to PAY for it, just like everyone else in the country does. It’s OPTIONAL. It’s not a God-given right."


Umm, this kids question was never even about healthcare. And did you notice the assumption that he's going to school for free? Conservatives and haters alike are some of the most stupid people in this country. Ok maybe not all conservatives, but this ass clown who said what I featured above is. Here we are in the most dire of economic times in our country in modern history, and Obama is trying to push urgency in the passing of a Stimulus Bill (which did pass the Senate by the way), and these asholes just don't get it.

Here's more...

"If you follow me on Twitter, you saw my comment earlier this afternoon about the savior-based moment in Ft. Myers this afternoon between President Obama and a woman named Henrietta Hughes — who demanded that Obama give her a home with her own bathroom and kitchen. The entire event was like a revival meeting" - Michelle Malkin


In the end, I wish nothing but success to both of these people from the Town Hall yesterday, as well as to everyone struggling to stay afloat in the country right now. Lets hope that Henrietta doesn't have to wait for that Stimulus money to trickle down to her state, and county before she finds some semblance of permanent housing or work. Here's to hope, and the hope that she's not swept by the wayside because of being a minority. Or worse even drug through the mud in the media with anything in her past being brought up which may have led to her current circumstances. Even if it were the case, to me, what's important is doing something for all the impoverished people in this country right now, in spite of how they got there. Both of these people were minorities, so don't be surprised if there is a negative backlash about this; even from fellow minorities.

Recently there has been much buzz about whether there should even be a celebration of Black History Month. Yeah, the old joke is that "they" gave us the shortest and one of the coldest month to celebrate it. Yes, I'm fully aware of this. But the truth is: they didn't give us anything.

Having said that, it is my belief that Black History Month be continued, and continued to celebrate the achievements of African Americans. I would however like to see it broadened to address African History. I mean, sure we're Americans, but since we have the African tag, its only right. What do you think about that one?

But since as it stands, I cannot tell people how they should celebrate Black History Month. I wish I could because if I did, none of this would be happening. I'm going to assume that you the reader didn't click the link provided in the last sentence. Yup, I know you people are lazy like that. If you clicked the link you would have read the story of an Elementary School in Mississippi who saw it appropriate to add to their calendar of Black History Month celebrations...


Yup, that's right. Last Thursday everybody in the school were supposed to dress up like slaves and, well, pick cotton. I guess the idea was to show kids just how wonderful that job was. I say that because one smart man saw this as unfit and as a result it was canceled. After which they decided to change the name or the event to Career Day.

I'm all about our kids learning our history, but I think making them do this would have been taking it too far. But believe me that I say that with some reluctance because a part of me really wants them to know what it was like. Maybe if people (adults included) had an ounce of an idea of what it was like, maybe they'll stop with the talk of killing Black History Month. The sad thing about it, is that I'm sure the Negroes who are in support of the end to Black History Month all had tears in their eyes when Obama won and was inaugurated.

QUESTIONS: 1) Do you think Cotton Picking Day would have been appropriate? 2) Would you have allowed your kids to participate? 3) Do you think Black History Month should end?

They're are some funny people those republicans. Say what you want about republicans being a bunch of sexually repressed closet racist homosexuals, but these people sure know comedy. Yup, they're always good for a laugh on a daily basis.

Check out this joke....

From: Carol Carter

Subject: FW: Amazing!

I'm confused

How can 2,000,000 blacks get into Washington, DC in 1 day in sub zero temps when 200,000 couldn't get out of New Orleans in 85 degree temps with four days notice?

Now I have people who send me jokes and funny stories in email all the time for the purpose of writing about them. But damn I wish I had one of my white readers send this one to me. Why? Because its hilarious! When I read it I laughed my ass offn and afterwards it made me think....

maybe Barack should have been the president back then?

Hell maybe if he was there would not have been stranded Negroes on rooftops for days on end. Yup, none of that would have happened because they would have listened to him and got outta town before the storm hit.

[insert confused side eye what the fuck look here]

Oh yeah the email posted above was sent around by a leading Florida republican as a joke. Yup, she thought this was funny. But it doesn't surprise me because I once lived in Florida and found out, well, you know what I'm saying. I mean this is the state that put Bush into office in 2000. Surely if they went as far as they did to ensure his victory, in losing the reigns of power to a Black man this is to be expected.

But see, there's a new sheriff in town, and his name is Michael Steele. That's right, there's a Black man who is the Chairperson for the republican party so all those old racist jokes are out the window. But as you can see, old habits (especially the 400yr ones) die hard.But alas, this is a new day...

TAMPA — Florida Republican chairman Jim Greer said Wednesday that longtime Hillsborough state committeewoman Carol Carter may lose her position because of the racial joke she forwarded in an e-mail.

"Carol Carter has been a hard-working, loyal Republican for many years, but this action I have no tolerance for, regardless of the circumstances or intent," a furious Greer said of Carter's e-mail.

Concerning her future, Greer said, "I am currently considering all options, including my authority to remove her from the office of state committeewoman."


Oh yeah, and its really good to see how a person can be contrite for their wrong doing.

Subject: Earlier e-mail

I have been asked to send this apology for my earlier e-mail. I am sorry that it was received in a negative manner. I do hope that we are going to be allowed to keep our sense of humor.

As you can now see, it went to very few people. I did add Todd Marks in this apology, as he is in the mix now. I am also sorry to learn that some of these persons are not real team players. There really was no reason for this to go beyond those that I e-mailed (8 people). This was not an e-mail blast as I do not have that capability.


Yup, she wasn't the problem: it was the rest of her ilk not being team players. I guess they forgot that the town of Hillsborough they live in was known for being racially insensitive during early voting after another email was forwarded which was about the record number of "niggers" who turned out to vote early. Oh yeah, there was also another "joke" or funny email that they circulated about the assasination of Barack Obama.

Isn't it good to see that we can all laugh at this type of stuff in our new "post racial" society?

Its too bad we somehow are still not "post racist".

Oh well, I gotta give it to the fine lady comedienne Carol Carter. At least she did quit her comedy career after this joke bombed with the crowd. Somewhere right now I think Michael Richards is happy. If only the dead guy in the picture above were still alive to get his chuckle about all of this.

But hey it was "just a joke" so no big deal right?

Hats off to the blog...

The Old Black Church! (What happen to the Black Church?)

for this story

Friday, February 6, 2009


Every time I hear the story about the lady who gave birth to octuplets, I picture a bunch of green alien-like babies running around a house somewhere in California where she lives. Sure its a very rare feat, but the way they speak about it in the media sure makes it seem to be something of another world.

I'm guessing its because of the fact that she already had 6 kids and single. Yeah, I guess that's it. But I also think that the fact that she's of middle eastern decent has something to do with it. You know its pretty much taboo for a minority to have multiple children these days.

When I heard the story after it broke, I can honestly say I thought it was a White woman. I'm not gonna lie, that was my initial thought. Not saying that minorities don't partake of the in vetro procedure, but it was just something I would expect of a White couple desperate to have kids. I mean after all, there are couples (mainly White) who spend large amounts of money to adopt children from foreign countries. And if they go that far for kids, why wouldn't they do it the way this lady did it? But this woman was already a single mom. And she has been catching hell for her decision to have more kids. Now she's being bastardized in the court of public opinion, as being a Welfare queen; a baby making machine content on living off of the system. And the fact of her being a minority sure as hell doesn't help matters either.

Isn't this America? The country where one is free to do whatever he or she pleases as long as its within the law? What ever happened to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? I mean if this lady wants to have 14 kids while being a single mom she can. Last time I checked, there were no laws limiting the number of kids one can have. This is America, Not China! So yeah, the idea of being single and having that many kids sounds kinda crazy, but hey, at least she planned it.

There are women running around in everyday life single with multiple children who were unplanned. Hell, some of them don't even have a clue as to who the fuck fathered their children. And because of that, Maury Povich is rich and he's not going anywhere while we laugh at those dysfunctional fools. Oh and lets not talk about the White high school teenagers in Massachusetts who made a pact to get pregnant before they graduate from school last year.

Having 14 kids is in fact an uncommon thing to see these days. But I know that having large families, though pretty much a thing of the past, it still happens. What's funny is how when it happens in this day and age, its often celebrated. They usually get a TV show on TLC or some shit like that. College trust funds and the whole nine yards are thrown at them. Will this woman receive any such attention? Probably not, but then again she will. Yeah she'll get some stuff from opportunistic capitalists I'm sure. But she will forever be looked at as the Welfare Queen, and ridiculed by many. Yup, she's gonna be looked at the way we look at the crazy cat lady in the neighborhood.

Why is it her decision isn't celebrated. How come she doesn't have her own website like the beloved Duggar family? You know, they're the really nice and clean WHITE Christian family who have 17 kids...and counting, as the show on TV is called? Yup, that's them pictured above. How come we don't hear about the other people in their family who have to get 2nd jobs to help them out? How come we never heard whether they had to file bankruptcy like the California Welfare Queen lady?

Why are all these ubber conservatives pundits up in arms about her? It would seem that the people who are pro-life would be happy about this since she was offered the opportunity to abort selectively but refused. Is it because she's of middle eastern decent? Are they afraid of her being the backlash for the Iraqi invasion? You know, her raising all those terrorists on US soil and all? Why is this single mom being looked at as insane while nobody says anything about the Duggars deciding to use Mrs. Duggars vagina as a clown car. Oh well, I guess it all comes down to the old saying: when you're white, you're right.

Yesterday I was just talking to my very good friend (fŭng'kē) [blak] [chik] on the phone about her dating escapades in the DC/Maryland/Virginia metro area. That woman had me rolling on the floor because of some of the shit she was saying about the men up there. Seriously, you foklks should read this blog in particular that she wrote the other day: A Midget In A Micro-Mini

I've always told her she was picky when it comes to men. To which she said that she most definitely was. After which I told her that I knew she was bourgeois; her and I have an ongoing joke about her uppity ways. But its not just her, as a matter of fact, I pretty much stereotype all DC/VA/MA as being bourgeois anyway. I know some of you reading this are from that area, and like my friend would say that the men up there are a trip. But are they really?

Now I could be wrong, and please tell me if I am. But I believe that women, Black women in particular, have a tendency to become very picky as they move up the socio-economic ladder. Am I right? Of course I am; RiPPa is never wrong (LOL). And in becoming the uppity bourgeois bitch [insert giggle here] they tend to limit themselves when it comes to dating. And usually when they do, they've become so much that they look for every detail to discredit the dude who comes a calling.

My girl was tellin me how she went to a club with a dude she met recently, only to notice he was wearing a hearing aid while they were on the dance floor. I laughed. Something about a deaf person dancing at a club made me laugh. Yeah I know, I'm twisted like that, and its sad. But I laughed even harder at the image she created in my head in describing dude dry humping her leg trynna get some at the crib after wards. I could only picture her face as she kept looking at the hearing aid.

But this blog isn't about my friend, its about women in general. Like I stated before, I think a lot of successful women are single because they're looking for, or waiting on the lord to send them a good man. Well, what exactly is a real man, or a good man? And why are you waiting on the lord to send you one? I mean, obviously since I'm not a spiritual or religious person, I had no idea that God was the one who ran I never knew God was in the matchmaking business. Sure he created the heaven and earth, so why should I think any different. But to say that you're waiting on him to send you a good man would imply that he has sent you bad men in the past, no?

I mean, surely your choice of man, or your character had nothing to do with the men you've attracted. Yup, you played the hand that God dealt you, and dealt with that no good dude. Its all God's fault. God made that imperfect or fake man as well did he not? Yes he did. So wouldn't that imply then that God himself is flawed and imperfect? I mean after all, he's the one sending out men and women right? I mean, isn't he the one responsible for the men that comes into your lives? And having said that, isn't that the reason some of you continue to fuck with no good guys until the good one comes along. You know, kinda like the lady looking bored in the pic above?

So in closing I'll ask again: What is a real man? What makes a man real and not fake, and hence a good man? Is there some extra chromosome that I don't know about that genetically impacts said man rating? And if God is the one responsible for these men walking the earth, and he made us all in his image, wouldn't that mean that God is fucked up too?

"I am glad these traitorous leaders of the Republican Party appointed this Black racist, affirmative action advocate to the head of the Republican party because this will lead to a huge revolt among the Republican base. As a former Republican official, I can tell you that millions of rank-and-file Republicans are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore! We will either take the Republican Party back over the next four years or we will say, “To Hell With the Republican Party!” And we will take 90 percent of Republicans with us into a New Party that will take its current place!"- David Duke (Former Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan)

America is indeed changing folks - yes it is. A little over a week ago we saw the swearing in of the first Black president, and people were quick to use it as the exclamation mark on our "post racial" society. It's just too bad that David Duke didn't get the memo like the rest of us Americans.

Heck, even a few well known Black celebrities endorsed this notion. Me being me, I never wanted to accept it, and in doing so, I had to fight to prove to the online world that old racists such as myself don't die too easily.

Yes folks, I'll be cool for now, unless another innocent unarmed Black man gets shot by the cops or something like that. I'll be basking in the glow of post racialness as I sip a drink of tolerance. Hell I might even form a my own social organization....


Oh yeah the GAY part has a double meaning: Tolerance! How cool is that?!!

So why the change? Well its obvious that racism is now officially dead now that Michael Steele has been appointed chairman of the republican party. I mean who would have ever thought that would happen? See, look at me sounding like the old "Happy Negro" on November 5th. Only difference is that I have no tears in my eyes. Thats right folks, I'm not that happy.

Not that I'm hatin' on Michael Steele or anything. Believe me when I say that I am proud of his accomplishment as a Black man. I mean, him being elected chairperson of the RNC has to be the equivalent of O.J. Simpson stumbling upon a KKK cross burning in the backwoods of Mississippi, and living to walk away unharmed without any rope burns around the neck, with an open invitation to the next BBQ, or even being named Godfather to one of their kids.

Ok well maybe not that deep but kinda. I mean the guy wasn't even a comitee member for crying out loud. He was an outsider in the grand scheme of things. Hell he needed a majority vote of 85 out of a possible 185 to win, and they had to vote 6 times before he even got the 91 he received. Could you imagine the deliberation among the voters as they voted all six times?

Yes folks, things haven't been too good for the republican party for a while now, and like another now famous "Magic Negro" Michael Steele is the messiah. Thats right, he is the man who will be responsible for bringing sexy back to conservatism. Lets face it, when you have Rush Limbaugh going toe to toe with Obama and coming off like he's running the party you're in trouble.

In all honestly, I wish him the best of luck in his endeavors as RNC Chairman because he's gonna need it. But then again maybe he doesn't need luck. Maybe this is indeed a new America, and hence a new republican party. Maybe gone are the days of the old Nixon Southern Strategy, divisiveness, dirty politics and all that democrats and liberals have come to love about the republican party. Maybe this is in fact a new day.

Lets hope that it is for Michael Steele's sake. I'd sure hate to be him having to walk around with my asshole tight for fear of being screwed by my people. It surely is a new day when the children of Black Conservatives can honestly grow up to believe and think they can actually be the face of the republican party after all the years the party proclaimed it never needed the Black Vote.

I wonder if he's Muslim?
