It's 12:12 AM. I just finished doing some real work to keep the roof over my head, I am heading to bed, and before I turn off my computer, I lurk over to get some "Nat Turner's Revenge" in me. Of course this is when I see this.
Chris why did you have to remind me of this shit? Now I am going to have to post about Andrew Young's ignorant ass. And please folks before you start with the e-mails and nasty comments about what a great civil rights icon Andy Young is and blah blah blah, spare me, I really don't give a fuck at this point. The operative word here is was. I know the brother marched with King, and for that he will always get my respect. But at some point you have to say: Andy, enough already, get the fuck off the national stage, and go retire and enjoy the rest of your life somewhere. If you are not smart enough to avoid making dumb ass comments and doing stupid shit like being a spokes person for S-cam Walton, just don't do shit.
People get mad at me when I talk about the old guard of the civil rights movement being obsolete, but this is why. While I love people like John Lewis who really got their asses kicked back in day, and even some of my own mentors (may their souls rest in peace) like Dr. Jessie Stone, and E.E. Cleveland, it's time for most (not all) of these people to hang it up. I am even going to surprise some people and say that Rev. Inc. is still cool with me. I honestly don't mind when they do shit to piss off whitey, because I still find that they are willing to do some things that makes the status quo uncomfortable. But for the most part these old vanguards from the past civil rights era are out of touch and far too often focus on the wrong shit.
If I go to one more of these fucking Urban League or NAACP balls at one of these white owned hotels; with all their fucking black tie and phony ass pretentious people, all trying to out do each other, I hope somebody slaps me right on top of my bald ass head. I have had it up to the top of my shine with the likes of Andy Young and all the usual suspects in race inc. You know who the fuck you are.
So thanks Chris for posting that little article and pissing me off tonight. I think I can go to bed now. Oh, Mrs. Field says fuck you for making her life miserable once again.
