What’s missing here?

The racial identities of those who used that unspeakable racial pejorative.

Hint:  There’s a certain race whose people have three-word vocabularies:  Mutha, Fuck*, and the unspeakable word in question.

‘BAPs’ creator defends controversial reality show

The creator of the new reality show “BAPs” is defending the controversial St. Louis show after viewers mostly panned it following its premiere Wednesday night on Lifetime.

Viewers complained about everything from the wigs, weaves to yet another reality show with black woman fighting. Some aren’t happy with the premise, focusing on an exclusive group of African-Americans in St. Louis, who position themselves in a higher class than others (a cast member says they’re Cosby black, not “Good Times” black).

“Black?”

In color line societies like ours, they’re black, but they would not be considered black in color continuum societies such as Brazil.  Even in South Africa, they would be considered “coloured,” and not part of one of the several black tribes.

“Wigs, weaves, black women fighting.”  This would be Tommy Sotomayor bait, and I would send it to him if I was still watching his videos.





Darth For President

has a higher net favorability rating than any of the presumed 2016 Presidential candidates.

Amusing?  Yes.  Important or relevant?  No.  Someone will be President after noon on January 20, 2017.  And it’s not going to be Darth Vader.

Rush:

Oh, yes, such good people.  But, folks, why was no conservative name mentioned?  Why was no Republican name mentioned?  Why was there no bashing of any conservative or Republican?  Anybody in there on the other side of the glass want to take a stab at answering the question?  Nobody wants to take a stab.  See, they know that I have the answer.  Oh, no, there’s all kinds of targets.  They just didn’t see it necessary to hit anybody.  The reason no Republican or conservative was bashed is ’cause they didn’t think it was necessary.  Why isn’t it necessary?  ‘Cause they think they’re winning everything.  They’re happy.

I think it’s even simpler than that.

Giving 12 Years a Skin Game the Oscar for the “best” picture was their poke in our eye.

Or, to put it more accurately, it was AMPAS opening a fresh new tube of KKKrazy Glue.  Midterms are coming up, time to try to goose black turnout.





Noticing Things

NotSam sent me this e-mail about Amos & Andy:

Why The Amos ‘n’ Andy TV Show Should Be Taken Off The Air
NAACP Bulletin
August 15, 1951

1.  It tends to strengthen the conclusion among uninformed and prejudiced people that Negroes are inferior, lazy, dumb and dishonest.
2.  Every character in this one and only TV show with an all Negro cast is either a clown or a crook.
3.  Negro doctors are shown as quacks and thieves.
4. Negro lawyers are shown as slippery cowards, ignorant of their profession and without ethics.
5.  Negro Women are shown as cackling, screaming shrews, in big mouthed close-ups, using street slang, just short of vulgarity
6.  All Negroes are shown as dodging work of any kind.
7.  Millions of white Americans see this Amos ‘n’ Andy picture of Negroes and think the entire race is the same.

The truth is, Amos ‘N Andy was no more demeaning to African Americans than The Beverly Hillbillies was demeaning to southern whites. Perhaps, we will collectively learn to lighten up, not get so bent out of shape, and learn to laugh at ourselves a little more. So lets sit back, relax, and read more about Amos and Andy!

Where would anyone have gotten crazy ideas like these?  Maybe they paid attention.

We were allowed to notice things in 1951, but not today.

Because…freedom.
