This is a tale of two cities, and not the way Mr. Dickens meant it. Sadly, this tale highlights the emotional roller coaster that being black in A-merry-ca can take you through.
Last night was a great night in our city. Why? Because the "O" man was in my fair city, that's why. He was visiting a very fancy fundraiser put on by uber lawyer Mark Aronchick and some of his closest friends with very deep pockets. I heard from some of my field Negro friends who were in the house that it was a very fancy affair. Over 400 Obamaholics and wannabees paid a minimum of $1,000, and the maximum of $2,300 to be in the same room with his "O"ness. Of course there was the really big money bash as well. This one was a little more personal with just about 75 of the "O" man's closest, ahem, friends. And they dropped $28,500 a pop for a personal audience with his "O" ness.
The Governor was there making nice, so was former Hillary supporter, our fine mayor, Michael Nutter. It was all brotherly love again. Yes folks, it seems that the dumbocrats are trying to unite now behind their nominee.
What a great night in our city. All that money, all that glitz, and all for a black man who could become the next leader of the free world.
Of course Wednesday night wasn't such a great night in our city. It wasn't, because Wednesday night, four animals allegedly forced their way into a woman's home, roughed her up at gun point, and took her ATM card. They then forced her to give them her PIN number, and then proceeded to withdraw a whopping $600 from the poor woman's bank account. This terrible ordeal lasted over four hours for the poor woman. (Which was probably longer than it took the "O" man to dip in collect his cash, and roll) To make matters worse; while two of the animals left with her ATM card, the other two stayed behind and raped her repeatedly while her niece and daughter slept upstairs. Oh, and when the other two animals came back, they raped the poor woman again.
Thankfully, two of the animals were caught. Police are still looking for the other two suspects both described as white males........yeah right. Both described as black males in their early 20s. "One has a thick build, dark complexion and cornrowed hair. The other suspect was described as having a medium build and a light complexion."
I bet they weren't at the fundraiser last night. Or maybe they were, maybe that's what they needed the money for.
