Playing Hooky



It's Tuesday morning, and I am playing hooky from my real job so that I can finish this motion to file in time for my side hustle. Hopefully, the "man" won't send the "slave catchers" out to get me. The fact that I am here blogging instead of doing my damn work ought to tell you how this little exercise is working out. I mean I am trying to concentrate, but I can't. I have been up since six o'clock this morning, sat in my basement and watched a DVD of Akeelah and the Bee. (cried all through that bad boy; what's up with that?) And still, I can't settle in to do my work. Yes folks, I feel like my friend the house negro today. Then, like a fool, I have the radio on in the background. And of course, wouldn't you know, it's on one of those powerful AM stations that broadcasts conservative talk all day. (Hey, I gotta know what the enemy is thinking) So I have that back ground noise to contend with on top of my over-all malaise.

So anyway, I am listening but not listening -if you know what I mean- to conservative talk on the radio, and I can just imagine what they are saying:

~~It's Cal from Ocean City, go ahead Cal: Yeah, I just saw where they had that monument dedicated to King in our Capital yesterday. Did our tax dollars pay for that?
No Cal, fortunately, that was paid for by Martin Luther Coon's....I mean King's old fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha, who made a proposal to have it built back in 1986. And they actually got their own private funding to do it. Of course, you know that the first black President signed the legislation permitting that travesty in 1996. So once again, we have Clinton to thank for pandering to blacks
and further dividing our country. Yeah, well as long as our tax dollars didn't pay for it, but then I wonder why it has to be where it is, couldn't they put it in one of those cities where they have a Martin Luther King Drive or something? Hey, I agree with you Cal, it seems like a waste of space. Lord knows we have enough memorials in Washington. And to see Bush down there with those people like Jessie and Al Sharpton, no wonder we lost the mid-terms. Thanks for the call Cal. Who do we have next? Yeah Barbara from Bensalem, go ahead Barbara, you are on WKKK conservative talk radio. Yes hi, I was wondering when my husband and I will be able to go into the city of Philadelphia again, we are terrified of all the murders and the crime. What is wrong with those animals, they are just killing each other like flies. Well Barbara, this is what happens when you are soft on crime like these Judges in Philadelphia. They give those thugs a slap on the wrist, and they are back on the street in no time. I know, my God! I see where some students were shot near St. Josephs University, and one man was killed in Center City, it's just not safe any where anymore. Well this is the problem Barbara, the crime is getting closer to decent law abiding citizens like you and me. If it stays in their neighborhoods, I don't think it would be too bad, but when it starts affecting our every day life, well then we have a problem. Thanks for the call. We are going to take a break but when we come back, I want to talk about Rudy Gulliani running for President, and what it could mean for Italian Americans. Hey, they already have the Speaker of the House, a couple of justices on the Supreme Court, could a President be next? Stay tuned~~~~


OK, I am willing to try this again.- the work thing- That would mean no blogging, but here I am still typing away and posting on my blog. Yep, I am officially addicted to this sh*#. Or maybe there is just so much going on that needs to be addressed and written about that I can't concentrate on anything else until I get that off of my chest. Yeah, maybe that's it....damn it, I am hearing the radio again.

~~~Go ahead Vito. Yeah what's your problem with Italians? I will have you know that there is an Italian's signature on the Declaration of Independence, and we have contributed a lot to this country. Hell, we found this country. Have you ever heard of a little guy called Christopher Columbus? I see where people are talking about a black guy for President for crying out loud! Osama Obama or whatever his name is, and you mean to tell me we can't have an Italian? Hey, Vito, I hear you there big guy, but don't blame me. America just isn't ready for a President with a vowel at the end of his name if you know what I mean. Hey, I am half Italian, but I have to be honest; some guy in Alabama ain't voting for some guy named Gulliani for President. Don't for a minute think that those Soprano television shows and all those wise guy movies don't have an influence on people. Well it just seems like such a shame that people can be so closed minded and prejudiced. I know Vito, but this is what happens when you become the minority in your own country thanks to illegal immigration. You are right about that brother. Vito have a nice day. You too brother and keep telling it like it is. Tyrone in West Philadelphia, go ahead Tyrone you are on conservative talk radio. Yes, I just want to say, that I am republican, and I am very disappointed in black people for giving the democratic party ninety percent of our support. Tyrone are you African American? Yes I am. Well let me say this, you speak very well, and you articulate your point very well. I always love to hear an articulate African American like yourself. Well thank you, I try to pattern myself off the lives of great black republicans like Condi Rice, Thomas Sowell, and Ward Connerly. Well, those are all great people you mentioned, and they are great role models for you. Thank you. Tyrone, let me ask you; what do you think of affirmative action? I think it's terrible. We don't need anymore handouts, it's up to us as individuals to take responsibility for our own actions, and the consequences for them. I mean if you look around you, we have Oprah, Tiger Woods, and all these great African Americans; people embrace black people now, so there is no longer a need for laws forcing people to accept us. Well said Tyrone, we could use more blacks like you. Wasn't it Martin Luther King that said: "we should judge a man not by the color of his skin but the content of his character"? Yes, I believe it was~~~ CLICK

I know what the problem was; it was that damn radio. Now I think I can get off this blog and do some work.

I'm out!

You are slipping man!!! Let's get it together!!

Good posting as usual.

And is there any other kind of talk radio besides Conservative Republican Talk Radio??? They own most of the radio stations and basically control most of the networks.

field, what r ur views on MLK? curious as you wrote martin luther coon -- my friends mother told me that he got his PhD on the sly without working for it. i am addicted to conspiracy theorists! someone help me stop.

Christopher Chambers said...

My wife told me the Judds were singing at the event. Do you think the same people who shunned and reviled MLK back in the day (like many of the tools up on the dais such as Dubya & Crew) now deify him as a means of trivialization? Sounds contradictory but hear me out. You make the man outwordly, heavenly so you don't have to address the very real, earthly, nuts and bolts issues he looked to, and the attitudes (hey, look what happened with Katrina...and hey, I saw "Borat" too) that continue what--forty years after he was murdered?

field negro said...

No aulelia, I wasn't dissing MLK,I was merely putting myself in the shoes of many of our conservative talk radio hosts,as I am sure many of them would just love to be able to call him ML Coon. -by the way, one did on the air recently, and was fired from his job- So no, I have no real hangups with King. Although I am more from the Malcolm X, H Rap Brown, and Fred Hampton camp from the civil rights era. But King had his place.

I know one thing, as Christpoher stated in the above post, he gave many of the people in this country an out, so that they didn't have to address the real issues that effects race relations and civil rights that we faced back then, and continue to face today.
