A Rush To Racism

Limbaugh

I just can’t get over how pathetic people can be.  We have people complaining that a person who is seen as extremely divisive and players don’t wish to play for him are somehow being unfair.  People are complaining because blacks don’t like to see white people in black face whether they meant it as just a joke, or whether or not it IS supposed to be an artistic endeavor in a magazine.

I was totally disgusted last night while looking at CNN when some stupid sports guy from St Louis said that by people not wanting Rush to own a team and him being discounted from the running that some how this was a real deal high tech lynching.  Umm, WTF!  Does this man even have a clue as to what he’s talking about?  Is the right wing spewing hate against Obama a high tech lynching?  I bet he would say no.  But who would be surprised.

It is NOT a lynching or racist or anything else besides people being vocal about their displeasure with a man who they don’t like his ideas.  You would think that this would be understandable to these people.  Don’t they scream that they have the right to disagree with Obama and protest him because they don’t agree with his ideas?  So how the hell is this a high tech lynching but what is being done to Obama is somehow NOT.  I’m just asking.

And now people are writing posts complaining about the pc police because others find black face offensive.  It is almost as if what is being said is that it doesn’t matter if the black face bullshit offends blacks as long as white people find it funny.  It doesn’t matter one damn bit what country it happens in, the crap is offensive.  I don’t understand how that is being politically correct.  What people need to do is educate themselves instead of allowing ignorance to reign supreme in their lives.

I guess what Vogue is saying is that instead of actually HAVING black models, we will create our own.  Isn’t that what was going on in the movie and music industry?  They made black people out of white people in order to NOT have to worry about actually giving blacks a job.  And sure it SOUNDS funny, but think about it.  Why NOT just hire black models, is it too much trouble or there aren’t any?

And for the idiots portraying the Jacksons, why dress in black face in order to act like the Jackson 5?  What is funny about the skit?  Dressing in black face and looking like a stupid buffoon or the actual singing and dancing?  Because if it is the latter then you don’t need black face to dance around and look stupid!  Yet, some white people, the ones who commented on this, obviously don’t see that.  They wish to compare this crap to some stupid Wayans movie called White girls.

For one thing there hasn’t been any precedence for blacks dressing up like white people in order to make them look foolish.  There is a LONG freaking history of blacks being the brunt or butt of the joke when whites are dressing up in black face.  There is also a long freaking history of white dominated fashion industry overlooking minority talent.  You can count the top minority models on one hand, even though the fashion industry has been around for generations.

It seems to me that we are FAR from being post racial.  In fact we seem to be moving backwards more towards blatant racism AGAIN.   So instead of looking at Rush Limbaugh talk about living in an Obama nation where white kids are beat up on busses while black kids yell “right on.”  Maybe he should have said that we are now living in a Rush nation where black ladies with their children walk out of restaurants and get the beat down by racist white men all while screaming racial epithets.

Or maybe it’s the Rush nation where black people have to go back to the early 20th century and be happy about black face.  We can look up to those “dandified darkies, or happy go lucky coons.”  We should be happy that we see a black likeness on the screen at all whether they are aimed at exploiting blacks or not.  We should just be happy go lucky.

To me it just seems like a nation where people such as Rush are allowed to prey on the stupidity of others.  Where else but in America can a junky pollute the minds of millions and still act like he has the moral high ground.  Or spew things that are racially suspect at best and still have a bunch of minorities following him.  Things are becoming worse and somehow the problem is not being racist but pointing out the racists.

The Epidemic Of Ignoring The Real Story

derrion

What exactly IS an epidemic?  We constantly hear this term when anything negative happens in the black community.  Well according to dictionary dot com (not disease) it means extremely prevalent; widespread.  The next definition is a rapid spread or increase in the occurrence of something.

Now I feel that the Derrion Albert death was totally ridiculous and callous occurrence.  My problem is that these deaths which total 40, is far from an epidemic.  Is it too many?  Hell yes!  But where were these CNN and other reporters or principals such as Steve Perry, who think they know all the answers or the rest who have so much to say all with little answers, back when there were 1 death, 2 deaths or 39 deaths?

We like to pick and choose what we label as out of control or epidemic.  CNN has a story running right now on workplace violence which is overly represented by white society and they haven’t once called it an epidemic.  They say that homicide is 42% of all workplace deaths and that isn’t an epidemic?  Yet, somehow we are now having an epidemic after 40 deaths.

According to Harvard 45,000 people a year die because of lack of health care resulting in lack of medical attention.  Isn’t that an epidemic that we should be focusing on and crying about?  And we ALL want to sit and focus on 40 teens.  This is why this country is going to hell in a hand basket, and not a very nice looking one either.  We are way too focused on keeping inequality with phony outrage.

It goes all the way back to the per capita versus full numbers game.  We like to focus ALL of our attention on things with small numbers that don’t affect us directly even though what DOES affect us with large numbers flies under the radar.  Or we tend to look at the symptoms and never the root cause.  Could we possibly be looking at the backlash from all the overwhelming poverty that black and other minority inner city children, adults and families have to deal with day in and day out?

We cry like the world is ending when the unemployment rate for the generic yet overwhelmingly white majority reaches 9%; yet could have cared less that the unemployment rate for blacks has been up over 10% for a very long time now.  Maybe we should be concerned with ALL of our people. . . Oh! My bad! That would be socialism and thus bad.  We all need to continue focusing on ourselves, even though it gets us nowhere.

OPEC is talking about dropping the dollar as the currency of their trade.  And it makes me wonder if this whole concern with Chicago is just another distraction from the real issues.  When the dollar is no longer the trade status of oil we are going to see a collapse of the dollar and then what?  We know what happens when a country’s currency collapses. Just look at Zimbabwe and that out of control inflation.  Thousands of dollars for a loaf of bread.

And according to The Independent, “Iran announced late last month that its foreign currency reserves would henceforth be held in Euros rather than dollars. Bankers remember, of course, what happened to the last Middle East oil producer to sell its oil in Euros rather than dollars. A few months after Saddam Hussein trumpeted his decision, the Americans and British invaded Iraq.”  Are we going to end up in yet another war?  And all we can focus on is this phony so called epidemic of black gang violence which has resulted in a whopping 40 dead.

Jon & Kate Irate

jon-kate

I don’t think that I have talked about the Jon & Kate + 8 fiasco but I am sure my two cents couldn’t hurt or help this train wreck in process.  These two are purportedly making seventy five grand an episode and they are squabbling over continuing this epic voyeurism gone bad.  I find this whole thing to be a total joke.  Not only are they hurting their children but they don’t even seem to care.

But, shouldn’t we now be talking about the fact that this is another guy who ISN’T black leaving his children fatherless.  And yes he left them moved to another state and shacked up with some young chippie.  Dude makes eight babies and then just leaves the baby momma all high and dry.  Yet, ask Obama and he would place Jon squarely in the black community.

Yes, by all counts there are far more single mothers of the Caucasian persuasion than in any other race.  But, it just feels better to point the finger of values at black folks.  This whole family reeks of the same stereotypes that they love to place on the black races door step.  We see an over bearing loud mouthed argumentative woman (white), a cheating loser with eight kids whom he has abandoned.  Both of them fighting and arguing over money.  We see a couple of people who have put their love of money before the welfare of their family.

Yet to let Bill Cosby tell it, this lady is Shaniqua.  Oh, just with more money.  They can’t provide for their kids either, at least not without TLC.  That is the reason they are doing a television show.  Made eight babies and can’t take care of them.   And now that Jon the dad has gotten used to his jet setting money spending ways he is beside himself with anger that they wish to cut him off.  And now he is trying to throw his wife under the bus even though the money she gets is supporting his children.

I guess he feels entitled to this handout from TLC even though he is no longer in the picture.  Or maybe he feels that if he can’t have a cut of the cash his kids shouldn’t either.  I mean we all know that the bum doesn’t work anymore.  And how much is he paying in child support again?  The man has sued saying that TLC is no longer welcome in his home even though he has made his home in an upscale New York bachelor pad and a new woman to go with it.

He claims that the TLC show is no longer good for his children.  Uh, WTF?   Was his leaving his kids to shack up with some other woman good for his kids?  Was sleeping with the babysitter good for his kids?  Was saying horrible things about his kids mother on national television good for his kids?  Not to mention just a few weeks ago he said that he felt the show was good for his kids.  What happened since then?  Oh yeah, they said he was no longer going to be on the show.  How ridiculous.

I don’t know why I even care since I don’t watch the show and thought it was ridiculous to begin with.  I personally feel that this is the epitome of what is wrong with reality television.  It serves no purpose for me to want to know or care about what they do in their daily lives.  I have enough reality in my own life to care.  There are probably millions of people with eight or more kids.  My mom’s family had nine kids, my dads family just as many and my significant others family had ten kids.  So what?

Anyhow, I thought I would just weigh in on this crap because in all sincerity I was sick to death of hearing the updates on which freaking parent was crying, whining and singing the blues to this or that reporter about the horrible mess that is their ex-spouse.  Do they think that maybe just maybe one day their children will grow up and see these public displays of hate?  I am sure they will, just as surely Madonna’s children will grow up and see their mommy’s naked body in a book.

What will these kids say?  Or will they already be so screwed up it won’t matter?  We see all too well what happens when families are dysfunctional.  But hey, we allow people such as these to make their mistakes and do their dirt without maligning their entire race.  Maybe we should take the same approach with others and their stupidity as well.  But we know better.  All we can look forward to is this voyeuristic view into the lives of Jon & Kate plus hate.

White Female On Child Crime Is On The Rise

christie

You know as I sat and watched the nightly news and this news story came on I was not even one bit surprised.  Yet another white woman was arrested for being a perverted predator.  It seems a married mother of two is accused of trying to have sex with a boy who is about the same age as her own children.  The 38 year old Christie Bradley is charged federally with coercion and enticement of a minor, and could face additional charges by the end of the week.

This seriously disgusting woman had the nerve to show up at the boy’s house toting lingerie and condoms after having an ongoing sexual conversation with him online.  She did this all in hopes of consummating her devious plan of child rape.  She met the kid on Facebook where she sent him explicit messages.  He also told the cops that she also kissed him on his mouth in his home previously.

She thought she was continuing to talk to the boy but the cops had already intervened and continued a conversation ruse.  Those cops let her hang herself as if she was about to appear on the NBC Dateline show aptly named Predators.  And whether she fulfilled her wishes or was busted attempting it, she is still obviously a predator.

When are they going to see that this is not a joke and start handing down some serious time for these female versions of the stereotypical pedophile?  We have a problem in that when we think about a pervert we start to think of some dude sneaking around trying to snatch a young child for his sexual perversions.  When it is starting to look like they are getting a run for their money by these perverted female teachers and sick mothers.

I think my whole problem with this is that we have so much lenience for white women who sexualize young children.  They do very little time in prison, get out and usually offend again, if they ever do any time in the first place.  As in the story of Maureen Lirette who slept with 7 teen’s some ages 13 and 14 and all she got was probation.  I am just wondering what it is going to take before we see this as a serious problem.

Will a black lady sexing up some 13 year old child make the difference?  Will we then decide that enough is enough and she will be the one that broke the camels back?  And we can then throw the book at her and make her an example?  I guess we will see and until then I will keep pointing these freaks out until it seems that it is being taken seriously.  Sexual exploitation whether it be a woman on boy or girl or man on boy or girl is damaging.
