The right wingers and my handle.


It never ceases to amaze me just how ignorant some of these right-wing wackos can be.

Now I suppose I should be flattered that the mofos (that means mother fucker for those of you who are not quite familiar with negroid jargon) chose to feature me on their sorry ass site. But you really have to wonder about folks who have nothing better to do than to rip the names people choose for their blogs. Or when they try to find some deep political connection between the name someone uses for their blog or the point of views they express on said blogs.

When I saw this I realized that the folks on the right must be really at rock bottom right about now. And honestly, I can't say that I really blame them. Their party is in disarray, A-merry-ca is changing right before their very eyes, and crazy ass opinionated black people have discovered the Internet. So when they post on their blogs (and one of the more popular ones to boot) this is the kind of shit they choose to throw into the echo chamber.

Now here is the thing... as bad as the post itself was, it pales in comparison to the comments that followed (It must really pain these folks to know that they can't say words like nigger and bitch in public anymore).

And finally, I think I have said this before about a thousand times, so let's make this a thousand and one. Most of you know this, but when the title of this blog gets picked up by folks who are somewhat black history challenged, I find myself having to repeat it: Being a field Negro is a good thing. Got that? A good thing! I know you folks on the right see that word Negro and panic, but please don't. Most (not all) black folks consider being a field Negro a good thing. And even if they don't identify with the field Negro per se, I doubt if they would seriously consider it a slur if you called them one.




Got that? Now go back to watching Sean and listening to Rush.

You are a racist, moronic, willfully ignorant waste of air.
You have all the flaws you ascribe to others.

The only "sorry ass" thing around here is you and your childishly oversimplified world view.

And by the way, we on the right don't panic when we hear the word "Negro", epsecially because some of us are negroes. I bet you squeal like a little girl though, when you hear the words "work", "honesty", or "personal hygiene". Remove your head from that "sorry ass" of yours and try living in the real world.

Wow, angry much? Not that FN needs anyone to defend him, but seems to me, this was highly personal.... which imho is what is childish.

The Christian Progressive Liberal said...

Field, Field, Field, don't you get it?

The Whack Jobs don't want to say "Field Negro". They want to say "Field Nigger" and watch you squirm with rage because you can't pimp-slap Mr. Charlie because Jim Crow gets you on lockdown.

Problem for them is, it's 2008 and calling someone a Nigger is more likely to get that person shot, cause Mr. Charlie has told them it's not PC to use Nigger anymore.

At the end of the day it's your blog and you can call it Lark Voorhees for all I care - I come here for the camraderie and the political discussion, you know.

I believe the wingnuts have blogs they can go to - they must not be getting what they want because they're coming here and stinking up the joint....

jose said...

Whenever you try to make it "simple and plain" people call you angry.

Then when you are outraged and angry, they still find a way to get angry.

Nevermind your angry is usually justified by the stupidity of their actions.

It's like that bully who gets mad when an outside observer gets pissed because the bully's beating up on a kid 1/2 his size. The bully has no sense that he's wrong, and tells the observer to mind his own business.

As far as a field negro, though, you can call me that, and most of the Afrospear could, too, but some of these other shady cats? No, I'm good.

Liar! That's why you're here posting such anger because you're in a panic!

I'll lay money down that you came back to see what the responses were---- to your panic!

baatin. said...

field, that was pretty hilarious. btw, it's good to see these republicans finally involved in a sex scandal having nothing to do with airport bathrooms, congressional pages and soliciting 20-dollar blowjobs from undercover cops in shady parks in florida. not to mention vitter the shitter.

heartsandflowers said...

It was nice to read and listen to Malcolm X. He was spot on then and nothing has really changed either! Is Obama a House or Field Negro? What you think?

thinkaboutit said...

Hey Field,
These right wing mofos need to back the f*ck up off the Field Negro. We get down here for ours and take no issh if you know what I mean. This is one of the best sites anywhere to hear multiple views on race, politics, black life, and life and sometimes we agree and sometimes we do not. Yet, no one can accuse of any of us of being less than what we are. We deal with the issues and the facts and if you cannot handle if don't stop by.
Peace

SagaciousHillbilly said...

Awesome. . . congratulation for being so honored by the right!
Fuck those morons. I laugh and sneer as the world changes and their party becomes irrelavent.

Chauncey, Zora, and Gordon said...

Hi brother Field,

You are on point again with how self-reliant and dignified black folk are somehow "conservative" and the right is uncomfortable with ownership over our own identities.

In addition, you have given us some shine and love in the past at We are Respectable Negroes so we want to send it back.

FYI take a peak at our commentary on Obama, the falling spy satellite, and the "outbreak" of Obama support...you may get a chuckle out of it! wearerespectablenegroes.blogspot.com

best,

Chauncey, Gordon, and Zora

elle said...

this is a great time to be a Black progressive, the Repug party is seen for the hypocrites they are and younger people are definitely liberal. the Repugs are dying out. So fuck conservatives,fuck sean hannity,fuck rush"medicine cabinet"limbuagh, and fuck that hag ann coulter, go someplace and be extinct.

AgentX said...

["work", "honesty", or "personal hygiene"]
I read that blog you linked to. The writers and commenters there have no idea what any of these words mean.
They only want a platform to spew hate speech upon minorities and women, like their idol Rush Limbaugh has, minus the DR hookers and the drug use. Read their topics and their posts and it reflects this- they can't run from it so they attack you.

You don't need our help to deal with these POS scum, Field. They're a joke, just like their candidate John Mccain.

"At the end of the day it's your blog and you can call it Lark Voorhees for all I care"

"THE LARK VOORHIES BLOG" Hmmmm :)

"baatin", as I said, this little tryst doesn't hurt the old man in my eyes. But he is probably toast with what little of the right wingers he had left.

"the Repugs are dying out. So fuck conservatives,fuck sean hannity,fuck rush"medicine cabinet"limbuagh, and fuck that hag ann coulter, go someplace and be extinct."

"elle", I couldn't have said it better myself:)


"..I'll lay money down that you came back to see what the responses were---- to your panic!"

justice58, they already have. And quite a few came over from that site. Now I will double that bet that they don't comment anymore.

Too many of you Negroes and prog. white folks around to give them a royal e-slap :)

And thanks to all of you for getting my back. (That's what fam. is for)

But trust me, I got this.

Christopher said...

People are too damned much.

This is Field'd blog and he can call it Fans of YTC if he wants.

If people don't like it, the push off.

jjbrock said...

Field thanks for keeping it real. You're one of a kind.

"Now here is the thing... as bad as the post itself was, it pales in comparison to the comments that followed (It must really pain these folks to know that they can't say words like nigger and bitch in public anymore)."

You hit it on the nail, I noticed that too. It kinda made me wanna do the "you can't but I can.. la la la" song, but that would be childish, of course.


field negro said...

Yeah....OK.

Hi Negro :)
"


Field, I beg to differ. I think he/she was just trying to tell you they have black friends. It just has to be since two other negroes probably agree.

Then again, maybe it is a house negro, and they sent him over to your cabin to do what house negroes could only do best.

You know that entire comment really hurt my feelings. Tell you what, I'm going to be a "mammie" just for today, and allow myself to feel immense sorrow just for you. "big group hug" (but only for those who have "good hygiene" now).

Christina Springer said...

Field, I just have to extend my heartfelt congratulations to you. Well done! (As a former PR person, I always delighted more in negative press than the positive. Negative press makes people "go and see for themselves.")

Oh and thanks for the re-read of Malcolm. I haven't spent time with that in awhile.

field negro said...

"Is Obama a House or Field Negro? What you think?"

"heartsandflowers", let's just call the "O" man a Patio Negro for now ;)

Ivan Ivanovich Renko said...

Y'know, it does beg the question:

"Exactly why would a white person want to use the n-word?"

F*ck conservatives. Their ideology has been anathema to black people since "conservatism" was explicitly the same as "Confederate."

I found myself in a conversation with a couple of white guys, both of whom were so disgusted by the entire crop of candidates (McCain, HRC AND the O-man) that they were considering staying home this November.

One turns to the other and asks, "What can you do?" "I'm buyin' guns."

Field, my esteemed brother-- if you ever wonder why this black Russian is a gun owner, there's your reason why.

They ran genocide and slave labor on us for centuries; then they ran ethnic cleansing on us for another half century; then they ran f*cking apartheid on us for another half century; and now that a black man is poised to hold the highest office in the land, they're buying guns.

I got one thing to say to conservatives: Yob' tvoyu mat'!

damien said...

They always wanting to play by their rules. When they realize that the black community realizes that we don't have to play by their rules they get upset cuz they don't know how to play our game....
They don't know how we talk between each other. They don't understand that we are used to such negativity and that we flip it those and use them for ourselves... They don't understand and instead of try'n to figure it out, through discourse, they hurl attacks.
It like how "they" have become experts in racism and if "they" (the dominant culture mindset) don't think it's racism then it's not, so "incidents and accidents" happen.
I don't understand why they're so mad... they made us this way.
Keep it going Field!!

gawker said...

Does anyone else think that the author of a blog called Right Wing News making the statement "Whatever happened to being an individual instead of part of some identity group?" is slightly ironic?

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

I did click on to that site. They don't get it and never will.

re: Mr. McCain we'll see. There are rumors about Obama as well. I refuse to believe Michelle would put up with that mess. This general election is going to be beyond ugly.

I hope most Americans are fed up with this type of "gotcha" politics.

Joel said...

...Cause there aren't any right wing blogs with provocative names! Yeah, ok.

My cousin once made the following observation, Every day I see a lot of horses. And every day I see a lot of horse's asses. But almost every day, I see more horses asses than horses.

Pretty much sums it up for me.

Cowboy the Cat said...

I followed links upon links and just ended up here. Although I find it hilarious that you called Obama a "patio negro", I hesitate to make that known for fear of being the white guy "laughing too loud" ala Dave Chappele (I hope that reference is understood).

Regardless of Obama's location relative to "the house", if he makes it to "THE HOUSE", it changes everything. Every little thing about America. Probably for the better.

I think Obama is less progressive than either Dennis Kucinich or John Edwards, which is a bit ironic. Based on his record in the Illinois senate, he will most certainly "play ball" with corporate America. But his presidency (dare I even say that) would push the psychological self-image of black America forward by light years.

We need this as a country. We need a united population to combat the inequity in our society. For many years, a poor white person was, in his own opinion "at least white". That will no longer be enough to drive a wedge between the poor of different races if a black man occupies the office of President.

This is why, whether he likes it or not, Obama will be a catalyst if he gets elected. Without even trying, an Obama presidency may unify poor of all races that are equally shit upon by the rich, because guess what? If there is no advantage to being white, who does a poor man have to hate? I think his anger may finally turn toward the real enemy.

I hope. Viva La whateverthehellhappens!!

Sorry this was so long, I get worked up.

Carinthia said...

Hey Field,

Those conservative idiots are right about one thing when it comes to my own personal views - you're damned right I'm angry...angry that we've had to endure those dipshits running our country STRAIGHT into the ground for 20 years. Angry that instead of moving forward as ONE NATION, we have been divided by fear, hatred, and greed. Angry that some ignorant, racist idiots are so proud of that legacy that they will continue to spout their bullshit with their last evil breath. So yeah, I am angry. And Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter,Michelle Malkin and GEORGE W. BUSH, you can all kiss my liberal ass. :)

Kellybelle said...

Field,
I just recently started blogging--it's way more time consuming than I thought and I'm wary of putting all my business out there, as I may one day seek another job. And now these right-wing nutty folk.

I salute you for your diligence, consistent quality, and fearlessness.

Phil4Real said...

Well FN I just had to post a comment on that wingnut blog. They may not enjoy the history lesson or better yet the reminder I placed on their righteous blog. Those people are all loonatics anyway.

Wingnuts have all been cloned. Unfortunately there's a malfunction in the machine, and it's making them all clueless.

MacDaddy said...

"this is a great time to be a Black progressive..."
-------------------
elle: You got that right. That means that, like the field negro, we can name, define and redefine ourselves in any way we want. And being a free people (Remember: Freedom is a condition of the mind. Liberation is the condition of the environment), we don't have to exclude someone because they're a different ethnicity, political party, religion or sexual preference. We only need to be open to possibilities that are in our best interest.

We can embrace Malcolm and not exclude Martin; Say si si puede and go ebonic and say it blues style like Albert King: "Take it on, little brother, and makie a way. Gots to take it on little brother. Take it further."

We can honor Stokely Carmichael and not forget Bayard Rustin or Ella Baker.

And we certainly don't need to worry about hapless, powerless black right wingers masquerading as sanctimonious baptist or racist white bigots wearing suits with a donkey pinned on it.

We can call our blogs anything we want; and we can call white bigots anything we want. So how you want it, white bigot? You want to shoot the breeze and learn something or call us names and oen way or another get your ass shot?

Noboby owns us anymore.

Hi FN,

I'm really delighted that I read your blog for the first time today (and not as a referral from RightWingNuts). Love your handle, love your blog, love your insights!

I'm glad that the righ is doing its part in opening up a whole new potential audience who may just read your blog and LEARN something. Links are currency :)

Woozie said...

Field Nigger, why do you hate America? How dare you insult the country that so graciously offered your people freedom from tribal Africa?

Frankly I don't know what white people ever did to incite such anger and suspicion, but whatever it was it couldn't have been that bad. I think you need to grow up and be a man.

In short Field Nigger, you need to get in touch with the real world. Abraham Lincoln would be ashamed of your using of the internet to express your leftist militaristic agenda.

*Blech, this Kool Aid astes like shit. You mofos even put sugar in it?*

vicdamonejr said...

Brother Field,

I am with you totally. The name of this blog is fitting. It definitely lends a historical perspective to the black blogosphere by name alone. It has to pique the interest of anyone who comes across it. Keep it up.

But I'm not sure black people want anyone but other black people calling them a field negro.

field negro said...

"cowboy the cat" I love your handle. Do you think the wingnuts would approve of it? I hear they hate pets.

Kellybelle, it's not easy doing this blogging thing my child. Fortunately, I don't have to worry about anyone coming after my job. And if they did, I wouldn't give a f**k.

BTW, thanks for the link. I will link you as well. (If I haven't already)

Chamblee54, I am still laughing at that comment.

Phil4real, way to represent. I caught a little of your comment over on that wingnut site. Way to crash their party and lay it down :) I know for a fact that they are surprised at the traffic they have been getting from the fields. Yes FN'snd HFN's can bum rush on the web as well.

field negro said...

And woozie dis here field nigger loves me some A-merry-ca sah. Yes me doz.

We is glad fer our freedom, yes we is.

rikyrah said...

What a clown.

What exactly is threatening by the name Field Negro?

Hmmmmmm.....

Someone has serious issues to find fault with it.

They aren't mad about Field Negro, FN.

They are mad about A-merry-ca....

And you telling it like it is....

And you speaking your mind.....

Between you, Skeptical Brotha, and others...I am so happy to have found the Afrosphere.....I know they've just gone insane...surprised not to see freeslave, Nat Turner's Revenge on that list among others..

The thing is, we have our voice,and we stand with our voice and defend it, and for some, who want us to ' know our place'.....they're going insane. You can see them falling apart, bit by bit.

Seattle Slim said...

Brother Field all I honestly have to say is those people over on that blog are sad and pathetic. I couldn't even really get mad because they live in their own ignorance like a pig lives in its own filth.

Blinders Off said...

Couldn't agree more! Rikyrah comment hit the nail on the head:

You can say that "anonymous". You can be venomous and caustic, but then hide behind anonymity in the process. That makes you a coward in my book. You can dish it, but I gather you can't take it.

Is this a modus operandi of you folks?

The Angry Independent said...

Field,

Why even bother with these people?

And it does seem as though they may be bottoming out. One would think that Right Wing bloggers should be more concerned with internal problems, instead of the names that people choose for their blogs.

Trying to explain the rationale behind the choice of names is like attempting to hold a conversation with your pet cat. They don't get it....and never will get it. Because they see everything through a different lens and they often come from a different place in A-merry-ca's economic and social hierarchy.

And I guess people don't have the right to be "angry" anymore. But I guess that shouldn't be a surprise, considering how they view individual rights...the Constitution, etc.
I guess other bloggers are supposed to be "happy" go lucky folks after 7 years of Bush/Cheney & Co.

fairlane said...

Here's the real irony, if you look at voting demographics, you'll see the average Wingnut is broke, and that they come from states that are broke.

FN spent more time in college than the average Wingnut spent in school, period.

The "Red States" are consistently dead last in every major category of importance: Education, Life expectancy, quality of life, income, number of people with college degrees, number of people who own their own homes, access to health care, on and on.

They do lead, however, in teenage pregnancies, drop-out rates, illiteracy, meth labs, number of divorces, and living off the federal teat.

It's no wonder though considering they apparently spend their free wandering teh Internets sweating over people's screen names.

Don't they have bowling alleys in Pulaski?

Somehow I don't think they understand the field negro/house negro dynamic.
