Like I wasn't going to blog about this story.
First, let me say congratulations to "Stump" for winning the Super Bowl of dog shows up in New Yaawk. It couldn't have happened to a nicer Sussex spaniel. Yes folks, Uno's reign as the top dog is over.
Now a few words about my friends over at PETA: (Which I think stands for people for the ethical treatment of animals.) I know that black suffering is pretty much at the bottom of things that you are concerned about, given that there are so many poor little animals out there you have to advocate for. But it is not cool to dress in KKK garb in the middle of New York city to make a point about your four legged friends. It's just not. People have been lynched, burned, and hung by that white christian militia, and you trivialize their memory and their suffering with your poor choice of a costume for your protest.
But I told you Negroes where you stand on the food chain here in A-merry-ca. Do you really think that there could be a PETOBF (That would be people for the ethical treatment of black folks) protesting outside NFL and NBA games because they think the league is exploiting young black bucks for profit and entertainment? I don't! PETA is mad at AKC (All these acronyms. That's the American Kennel Club) for promoting the breeding of a "master race" of pooches. See the comparison? The KKK wanted a "master race" and so did the AKC. Wow, it's so simple when you break it down. I guess pretty soon "Stump" and his friends are going to burn down all those kennels where they keep stray dogs. Folks, hide your mutts, you wouldn't want them to be burned out of their dog house. (Look mommy there is a tiny cross on the lawn. Damn it, it's those damn dogs from the AKC again)
Let me stop, this shit isn't funny. There are some really twisted folks running PETA these days. And frankly, I am glad I wasn't up in New York to witness this shit, because I might have been very unethical in my treatment of those two clowns in front of the Garden.
"Obviously it's an uncomfortable comparison," PETA spokesman Michael McGraw told the Associated Press.
"Uncomfortable"? Is that what we are calling ignorant and insensitive these days? "Uncomfortable"? Nice. But this too will pass. I guess if PETA wanted to bring attention to their cause, this was a pretty good way to do it. If you look at it that way, I guess we could say mission accomplished. Now A-merry-ca, thanks to the use of some very offensive imagery, is aware of the AKC and their quest for a "master [pooch] race".
As a black person in A-merry-ca, let me be the first to tell PETA that I am glad we could help.
