Restaurant Review Bill O’Reilly Style

I watched the interesting restaurant review that Bill O’Reilly gave after visiting a well known African American establishment called Sylvia’s in Harlem New York. Now he made some comments about it and everyone is in a bit of an uproar. There are allegations flying all over the place. But all that happened was it made me want to give my own review of a local restaurant as well since it is the entire buzz right now.

I went to a well known restaurant here in town run by a local Caucasian man. I was really surprised that the guy who seated us was tremendously respectful and never once did he refer to us as “dude” or the “N-word” and he didn’t have any lice popping out of his head. I was impressed right there to say the least. Then as we sat and looked around the place there wasn’t even a noose in sight or a Confederate flag. I was astonished that no toothless banjo players were present, in fact the music was a nice soft jazz. This almost floored me as you know Whites pretty much just began to start getting rhythm. They’re starting to get away from the Pat Boone’s and Como’s (Perry) and the people trying to lead them into rhythm-less culture.  They’re just trying to figure it out, Look, I can make music.  If I work hard and get a drum beat, I can make it.

My date quietly mentioned the fact that he hadn’t seen any NASCAR posters or one giant belt buckle, but I told him the night was still young. At any moment one of the Caucasian patrons was bound to jump up with his ten gallon hat and start shooting his pistols into the air while yelling “yeehaw”. At this point I was beginning to think that these people were actually just like me and other Blacks, although I did have to spend ten dollars for a burnt cup of coffee.

Our dinner came out without a hitch and the fellow bringing it didn’t have a mullet or a skullet. In fact he didn’t even talk through his nose as if he had once been Batman’s butler. But really Blacks who don’t have a lot of interaction with White culture think it is dominated by Michael Richards, Don Imus and Ann Coulter. Well this was a really fine evening for us as we didn’t see the Klan or any skinheads in the place. So all in all it was a very delightful dinner so hopefully other Blacks will realize that it was the same even though it’s run by Caucasians with predominantly Caucasian patrons.

To thank Bill O’Reilly for opening my eyes on all that can be expressed while giving an account of dinner at a restaurant run by those that are less than himself. I am glad to have been exposed to his rant as it gave me a chance to rant for myself. I hope that you enjoyed my review, sorry I couldn’t post the name of the restaurant as I didn’t clear it with the owner first. Please don’t call it racist it is just my ignorance of White people that I said these things. I was trying to pay the restaurant and the White community a compliment. Hopefully nobody gets mad enough that I end up with a burning cross in my front yard. So there you have it, I hope you enjoyed.

I’ve Tried Nothin’ And I’m All Outta Idea’s

I found Bush’s address to the United Nations today to be almost comedic, that he would stand there and chastise countries for their human rights violations when we in this country are still subjugating a nation of people simply because of their skin color. Then again looking at Bush’s record on human rights, he’s tried nothing and he’s all out of ideas. Some of his talking points were taken directly from the Universal Declaration saying things such as when innocent people are trapped in a life of murder and fear, the declaration is not being upheld. Recognizing the inherent dignity and the human rights of all members of the human family…Truth is denied by terrorist and extremist who kill the innocent with the aim of imposing their hateful vision on society. In the long run the only way to defeat extremists is to defeat their dark ideology with a more hopeful vision one of liberty.

It is unbelievable that we are the self imposed moral compass of the world yet second class citizenship is all too alive and well right now for people who are born from those that suffered under the ultimate human rights violation in this country slavery. Like he said innocent people are trapped in a life of murder and fear yet he forgot to mention they are right here in America. Extremists and their dark ideologies of terrorist yet whose ideology was it that kept the people in New Orleans from having the basics in living conditions for five full days after hurricane Katrina? Or feel justified in the fact that there is unequal access to healthcare, education, and a decent standard of living for everyone. It seems that we have some of our own dangerous extremists living in our cities who decide to hang nooses from trees and trucks in order to frighten and subjugate a race of people without so much as a peep from Bush.

While spouting the 25th declaration he left off these lines: Everyone has the right to necessary social services and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control. Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection. Wow sounds like welfare or social benefits and we wouldn’t want to impose that upon the people of America now would we?

Malaria takes as many lives as HIV/Aids in some countries and the vast majority of them innocent children, he says that the deaths are unnecessary and the US launched a 1.2 billion dollar initiative yet he threatens to veto a bill insuring that innocent children right here in America would have health care. He claims that the bill will cost too much yet spending 300 BILLION dollars for war is totally worth it. He also claims that as the bill stands it could allow some kids whose parents can possibly pay on their own might wiggle into the plan. So it is better to let all kids fall through the cracks of healthcare than to let just one child undeserving get state run care. As this might lead to full state run universal type healthcare and that can’t happen. Right, because if he has taught us anything, then we know that you should make sure that not one undeserving person gets anything meant for those in need, kind of like how tax cuts went to the rich not the poor.

Since he is so happy to quote from the Universal Declaration I wonder what happen to article 23 which states: (1)Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favorable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment. (2)Everyone, without any discrimination, has the right to equal pay for equal work. (3)Everyone who works has the right to just and favorable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection. (4)Everyone has the right to form and to join trade unions for the protection of his interests. Why in this country are we not upholding the statement (2) of this article, or does this only apply to other countries. People are being discriminated against daily not to mention the difference in pay like an immense chasm between equally qualified Black and White employees.

No, it seems that the United States doesn’t work very hard to uphold very many of these declarations that Bush so eagerly spouted in order to chastise Burma, Zimbabwe, Sudan, Cuba and others. It seems that we here in America headed by our president are quick to throw around our self designated moral superiority as we point fingers any and everywhere except at ourselves. The president should wag his finger into this country and point out some of the many skeletons in our human rights closet. The many violations that we choose to live with yet act as if do not exist. Bush has the audacity to expect others to do what he and others in this country aren’t willing to do themselves.
