I thought I could trust my white friends, I really did. However, it seems that I cannot really trust them after all. While reading one of the new blogs that I am feeling I came across this little gem. It turns out that some white folks have a couple of new code words that they use when they are talking about us.
The “Monday” reference I am familiar with, because I did happen to see that “Def Comedy Jam” skit. But "Canadians"? Now honestly, I really don’t care what white folks think about me, but if they are going to use code words over our heads and use the shit to affect us in business and in our chosen vocations, well then we are going to have a problem.
Now I am counting on my white friends on this site like Christopher, David, and Jimbo (that’s a shame when you can single out and name your white friends) to hip us to any other secret slurs that's out there about us.
Finally, I want to comment on something else: Today is the first anniversary of some bullshit that some of the Wal Mart blogs tried to push over on the rest of us called “Amnesty Day.” My man Skippy asked me to blog about it, so I feel obligated to say a few words.
Last year when a bunch of these large blogs got together and conspired to exclude some of the smaller ones from their blogrolls it was pure bullshit, and they knew it. They called it Blog Amnesty Day, but it was just a way of purging their blog rolls of blogs they consider beneath their stature by hiding behind the facade of a phony ass campaign.
I was proud to join a few of the smaller blogs who called them on their bullshit, and told them in no uncertain terms where they could take their Blogroll Amnesty Day.
Now don’t get me wrong, it’s their blogs; their blood sweat and tears went into it. Therefore, they are free to do with it what they want. However, this is the Internet, and we are a community of folks who are trying to spread information and ideas. The way that we do that is to link each other. So when folks try to hinder that free flow of information, I will always take issue with it.
And for the record, let me say this again: I will link anyone who links me (Just as long you don’t run one of those racist ass storm front or porn sites or some shit). I can’t always see you, so if you are linking me and you don’t see your name on my roll, shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will link you up quicker than you can say field.
Now enjoy the Super Bowl. I hate both the G-Men and the Spytriots, but I am going with the cheaters from New England to go undefeated.
