I don't think what I am going to do has ever been tried before. If it was, I would like to apologize now to the blogger who did it before me.
Anyway, I am going to write the outline of a post, and ask you smart field Negroes and honorary field Negroes to put the body in it for me with your insightful comments.
I will fill in my outline with the best comments and then my lazy ass will use it for an entire post later on this weekend.
Oh, and I am going to need a title as well.

"But, I have to say the angry responses to those realities are sometimes misdirected....Just for the record, I am nobody's white b*tch, gold digger or fame chaser. Nor am I any of the other mean things I have been called lately. I don't need anything from anybody, I come from a good family and I'm a young independent "successful" model making my way in NYC. (If you don't believe me google me or go to juliehenderson.net). Finally, I just wanna say that Russell has been a great "special" friend and I'm sure as sh*t not giving him up cause some in America object to our friendship. I wanna close by saying, what Russell always says, Namaste. (That means the goddess in me recognizes the goddess in you)....Or, b*tch get your own man." Source: Global Grind

I can't tell you how much I have been enjoying this in-party fighting between the repubs for the soul (And I use that word loosely. Republicans have no souls) of their party. In one corner is the two tons of evil, also known as Rush & Dick. And in the other corner, the voices of moderation and reason, also known as Colin & Tom. (On this Memorial Day it's important to note that both Tom and Colin served their country honorably in war and Dick and Rush did not. Just thought I would throw that out there) Dick started it all when he lashed out at Colin and declared that he didn't even think that he[Colin] was a republican anymore. Then Tom said that Dick was in essence lying when he said that the country is less safe under Obama. And then Rush agreed with Dick, and Tom agreed with Colin and.....oh lawd this is all too much, but you get the idea.
“Rush will not get his wish and Mr. Cheney was misinformed – I am still a Republican..,”“Neither [Cheney] nor Rush Limbaugh are members of the membership committee of the Republican Party...”
Yu tell dem yawdie! That's what I like to see; that good old Jamaican fighting spirit coming out of you. You must be drinking plenty Irish Moss and Linseed these days. But wait, Tom Ridge wants to jump in here as well:
“I think Rush articulates his point of view in ways that offend very many...”
That's what I am talking about; two military guys fighting for their party on Memorial Day. Way to go boys. I am pretty sure that most A-merry-cans have your back. Most. Unfortunately there are still some among us who would put party over country. We call them "wingnuts", and there are plenty of them.
Now as a person of color I always listen for the African American voices in these debates. So where are the conservative or republican, African Americans? Why so silent on this issue? Whose side are you folks going to come down on? Inquiring minds want to know. I know that a few of you like to come out to the fields from time to time, so can you tell us please? We are trying to understand the debate and I am sure that you all will be able to help us out a little.
"I don't want to pick a fight with Dick Cheney, but the fact is, the Republican party has to be a broad party that appeals across the country..."
Fight Colin fight. The field Negroes have your back. Even if the Negroes in your own party do not.

Last night the Lakers beat Denver in what was yet another fine NBA playoff game. The NBA's theme for this year's playoffs is "where amazing happens" ---or something like that---but I want to know what is amazing about a bigoted sexist owner who treats people like shit. Donald Sterling is an owner in the NBA, and the NBA and all its enablers ought to be ashamed of themselves for allowing this creep to still own an NBA franchise. I know I ripped Elgin Baylor earlier for suing Sterling after being his house boy for so long, but reading Peter Keating's article was too much, and it sheds a totally different light on old Donald. Hey, maybe Elgin knew something that the rest of us didn't know all along. (Although his ass still should have spoken up sooner.) And now, thanks to ESPN the Magazine, we all know, and so it's time for Sterling to go.
The NBA fines one owner, Mark Cuban, thousands of dollars for complaining about the referees, yet they allow another owner to discriminate against minorities and sexually abuse females? That is a fucking disgrace!
Anyway, let's play a little game: its called spot the house Negroes and honorary house Negroes in the article. I am going to give you the first few paragraphs of the article and then the link to it. Please go through it and give me the number of these clowns you spot. For the record, I spotted at least seven. I swear these current and former mental slaves in the NBA make me sick to my stomach.
"It was 2002, and Donald Sterling was talking to Sumner Davenport, one of his four top property supervisors, about a tenant at the Ardmore Apartments. Already the largest landowner in Beverly Hills, Sterling had recently acquired the Ardmore as part of his move to extend his real estate empire eastward toward Koreatown and downtown LA. As he did, Sterling "wanted tenants that fit his image," according to testimony Davenport gave in a discrimination lawsuit brought against Sterling in 2003 by 19 tenants and the nonprofit Housing Rights Center. (That case ended in a confidential settlement in 2005; attorneys for the Center declined to comment for this story. In a separate suit, also concluded in 2005, Davenport claimed Sterling sexually harassed her, and lost. She declined comment. The Magazine has obtained depositions in both cases.) Cultivating his image, Davenport said, meant no blacks, no Mexican-Americans, no children (whom Sterling called "brats") and no government-housing-subsidy recipients as tenants. So according to the testimony of tenants, Sterling employees made life difficult for residents in some of his new buildings. They refused rent checks, then accused renters of nonpayment. They refused to do repairs for black tenants and harassed them with surprise inspections, threatening residents with eviction for alleged violations of building rules.
When Sterling first bought the Ardmore, he remarked on its odor to Davenport. "That's because of all the blacks in this building, they smell, they're not clean," he said, according to Davenport's testimony. "And it's because of all of the Mexicans that just sit around and smoke and drink all day." He added: "So we have to get them out of here." Shortly after, construction work caused a serious leak at the complex. When Davenport surveyed the damage, she found an elderly woman, Kandynce Jones, wading through several inches of water in Apartment 121. Jones was paralyzed on the right side and legally blind. She took medication for high blood pressure and to thin a clot in her leg. Still, she was remarkably cheerful, showing Davenport pictures of her children, even as some of her belongings floated around her. Jones had repeatedly walked to the apartment manager's office to plead for assistance, according to sworn testimony given by her daughter Ebony Jones in the Housing Rights Center case. Kandynce Jones' refrigerator dripped, her dishwasher was broken, and her apartment was always cold. Now it had flooded. Davenport reported what she saw to Sterling, and according to her testimony, he asked: "Is she one of those black people that stink?" When Davenport told Sterling that Jones wanted to be reimbursed for the water damage and compensated for her ruined property, he replied: "I am not going to do that. Just evict the bitch." Repairs never came. The shower stopped working, and the toilet wouldn't flush; Jones needed to use a plunger and disposed of waste tissue in bags.
Kandynce Jones departed the home she loved but that caused her so much grief when she passed away, on July 21, 2003, at age 67.
Two years later, Sterling resolved the Housing Rights Center case with a payout. The details of the agreement are confidential, but U.S. District Court judge Dale Fischer called the settlement "one of the largest ever obtained in this type of case." Plaintiffs were awarded $4.9 million in legal fees alone. In August 2006, the Justice Department hit Sterling with the federal housing discrimination charges he faces today. They portray a pattern of behavior far in spirit from the starlit world of Spago and Staples that Donald Sterling revels in publicly."
"Just evict the bitch"? What a sweetheart. It just goes to show you that if you have money and power in A-murder-ca you can be anything you want; even a bigoted jerk.
Read the rest of the article here.
Finished? Good. Now tell me how many you spotted.

This weekend I am heading down to Ocean City, Maryland to spend some time in a bad investment that Mrs. Field and I got into. I will have my trusted lap top with me so my blogging won't suffer.
Anywho, just for this post, I have some questions and some thoughts. Hey, it's Friday, I always get reflective on a Friday.
Like, for instance, why can't Charles Barkley take a broadcasting class or get a speech coach?
Does the fact that I like to watch Telemundo and speak very little Spanish mean that I am a misogynistic jerk?
If I were a white guy, would I recognize white privilege?
Does Dick Cheney ever get his freak on with Lynne? And do I need to seek help for even thinking such thoughts?
This is an old one, but true: Isn't it ironic that we drive on a Parkway, and park in a Driveway? I am just saying.
Why do black people spend so much money on bullshit? (Like shit for their cars, for instance)
Why do white people spend so much money on their pets?
Why is Texas even still here? (Oh, and governor good hair, you are welcome for that little stimulus money we gave you to fix up your crib.)
Why haven't we learned who killed Biggy and Tupac?
Am I the only one who thinks that Third World is the greatest band ever?
How long does Nancy Pelosi take to put on her makeup?
And speaking of learning to talk: Hey Roland, you might want to look up the speech coach Charles ends up getting.
There really ought to be a law against short sleeve dress shirts.
What the hell did we do before cell phones?
I don't ever want to see another pregnant woman standing at a bus stop by herself.
Speaking of buses; "Get On The Bus" by Spike Lee is a very underrated movie.
Is it just me, or do you all get the same feeling that [some] republicans are just praying that we get attacked before the reign of O is over?
Will we ever know how good Obama's b-ball game is? (Who wants to really body check the president of these divided states?)
Whatever happened to Stedman Graham? And why didn't that dumb Negro marry Oprah?
I miss being a troll, talking shit, and picking e-fights on wingnut blogs.
Why is Angela McGlowan afraid to take up my challenge?
I know she is 52, but Debbie Morgan could still cure my Lark, jones.
Why don't you A-merry-cans like soccer? I can't wait to get my season tickets to the new Philadelphia MSL team.
Am I the only one who thinks that Jamie Foxx had some good points about Miley Cyrus?
Whatever happened to Keith Washington?
And finally, why does it seem like it takes forever to drive across a little ass state like Delaware?
I am out.

I am so mad at these dumb ass Negroes I don't know what to do. Now they done went and made it cool for the "man" to profile us again. When those Saudis who could fly but couldn't land planes, took them into the twin towers, it's the Arabs and Middle Eastern looking chaps who were under the gun. Now, thanks to these Keystone terrorist, the field is going to have to live with even more profiling.
Apparently these clowns didn't even have Osama bin Laden's blessing. Just a bunch of free lancers trying to mount their own version of jihad. Let's just go ahead and call them jail house jihadists because that's where they met; not on the battle fields of Afghanistan. They were just a bunch of guys from the Bronx who wanted to represent for the cause. Oh field, stop it, what if it's all a set up by "the man"? Yeah, right. The only thing that set them up to fail was their own stupidity. The feds had these clowns pegged all along, and they had an informer working from the inside and telling them exactly what the Keystone terrorist were doing every step of the way.
The explosives that they sold them; they were fake. (Thank goodness, because I bet those clowns would have blown up half of New York before they got to their intended targets.) Those Stingers that they tried to get to shoot down the military planes; they were fake as well. The "man" was all over this plot from the jump. (I guess the O man's administration isn't so soft on terror after all. Take that Dick Cheney) Memo to Keystone terrorist: You don't plan a take down of imperialist interests with folks from around the way. Because what do you think will hapen? I will tel you what: chances are that one of them just might be an informer. This shit ain't like buying some hot guns off the street and robbing Mr. Wong's Deli. You are playing in the big leagues when you try this shit. Just ask these guys. They got life for just acting like they were going to be like the 911 hijackers.
"This is a plot that would have involved martyrdom, explosives and certain of the tubes that connect New Jersey with Lower Manhattan," [FBI Assistant Director for New York] Mershon said. He called the threat "the real deal." '
The type of "threat" might have been the "real deal", but the men carrying it out certainly weren't.

A DOCUMENTARY CHRONICLING THE EXTRAORDINARY ROAD TRIP OF TAVIS SMILEY AND 10 FRIENDS EXPLORING THE BLACK MALE EXPERIENCE.
STAND, a compelling documentary chronicling an extraordinary road trip taken by broadcaster Tavis Smiley and remarkable black male friends at a key moment in our nation's history. America was commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., against the backdrop of then-Senator Barack Obama emerging as the first African American to become the Democratic presidential nominee. As America approached the historic 2008 presidential election, the national dialogue and debate intensified about race relations, politics and legacy of the civil rights movement.
"There are times in the film when we debate, cry, laugh, hug and even hold hands and pray together. It's a genuine reflection of Black men and brotherhood which we rarely, if ever see in the media. When people see the film, they really respond to that," said Smiley.
Dr. Cornell West and Dr. Eddie Glaude will host a post-movie discussion.When: Thursday, May 21st, 2009 Time: 6pm - 9pm (Film starts at 6:45pm)Location: African American Museum, 7th and Arch Streets, Philadelphia PA"

'"I am disappointed at the hypocrisy shown by this Administration,".... "President Obama is coming to Las Vegas later this month for a political fundraiser, but he will not help the struggling families in Las Vegas and Nevada who are out of work because of his reckless comments." Governor Gibbons noted, "President Obama is coming to Las Vegas to raise campaign cash for Senator Harry Reid, apparently our money is good enough for the President, but our tourism, jobs, and economic future are not."...... "This is politics, pure and simple, President Obama stood for change, but all he has done is brought negative economic change to Nevada."'
That Obama is such a party pooper. O man, why did you have to go and diss the good people of Vegas? Didn't you know that they have families to feed like the rest of us? Apparently when you said this: "You can't get corporate jets. You can't go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayer's dime" in the most non Las Vegas of places, Elkhart, Indiana, you touched a nerve. And it seems that you caused over 400 organization to cancel their conventions and their trips to Sin City. Which, by the way, cost the good folks of Nevada over a hundred million dollars in revenue. (Or so they say) Now O man, if that's true, that is some serious cash.
How does it feel to have such power O man? No wonder the repubs are terrified of you. So all it took was a few words from you and over 400 groups canceled their planned conventions? Imagine that. And to think I thought it was the bad economy and tough times that we are facing which caused them to cancel. Nope, it was you and your O-mnipotent power.
Poor Tim Gibbons he is so mad at his O ness that he doesn't know what to do. He wants a meeting and the chosen one won't even give it to him. Even Oscar Goodman, (you gotta love a mayor named Oscar) the good Mayor of "Sin City" was getting into the mix, and was giving his O ness an earful about dissing his city.
But I will give it to his O ness, he sure knows how to pick his enemies. I am guessing that there aren't many people in the rest of the country who are crying a tear for the folks in Vegas right about now. I know that there are lots of girlfriends and wives saying serve them right. "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? Well what if nothing happens in Vegas, how do you like them apples?"
Ahhh "The City of Lights". Hey, isn't that where they shot Tupac?

"Their arrows are sharp, all their bows are strung; their horses' hoofs seem like flint, their chariot wheels are like a whirlwind." ~Isaiah 5:28~
I guess, in a way, this all makes sense. I mean those Muslims were fighting a holy war, why shouldn't we?
Seems our former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, was putting "gospel talk" in his memo briefings on the war to his commander "the thief", W. What better way to get the frat boy's attention than to put a little religion into the mix? No wonder it took the frat boy so long to get rid of him. The guy knew how to stoke his boss. Just let him think this war was ordained by god and it's all good. So you kill a few thousand people, what's the big deal? it was all god's will. I guess those Muslims who blew up those tall buildings in New York felt the same way. What's 3,000 or so infidels in the big scheme of things? It was allah's will.
"The cover of an April 10, 2003 Pentagon memo prepared for the president showed the statue of Saddam Hussein being toppled and scenes of grateful Iraqis. Below the images were the words: 'Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him ... To deliver their souls from death.'...The cover of another memo featured the words, 'Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?' above a soldier who appeared to be bowing in prayer. Below, were the words, 'Here I am Lord, send me!' Isaiah 6:8."
Wow! These people are truly crazy. Thing is, I don't even think Rumsfeld is particularly religious, (I think he belongs to the 4th Presbyterian Church USA, look it up) which just goes to show you what a snake and slime ball the guy was. That's not me,field, saying that, that's his former colleagues putting him out there. And the hits just keep coming. How much more will we learn about this bunch before it's all said and done?
I guess this Pelosi dust up couldn't come at a better time for the repubs. But we can count on the main stream media to keep Lady Nancy on the front page and this little gem of a story buried way in the back.
Oh, that's right, we can't inflame the Muslim world; they might actually start thinking that their religion is better than ours.

But then, I am not in a profession where one of the rewards for my success is meeting the president of these divided states. If it was, and I did reach that pinnacle, I doubt seriously if I would turn it down. I mean there are famous people and there are FAMOUS PEOPLE. The president of these divided states qualities as a famous person with capital letters.
Which brings me to James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers. This ignoramus refuses to meet with the president of these divided states with the rest of his Steelers for the lamest of all
"This is how I feel -- if you want to see the Pittsburgh Steelers, invite us when we don't win the Super Bowl. As far as I'm concerned, he [Obama] would've invited Arizona if they had won."

Last I checked, Martin plays in a league dominated by black men hailing from the don't-talk-about-my-mama culture. I don't have any doubt that La La Vazquez and every other Nugget sympathizer who entered American Airlines Arena for Game 4 came with an attitude looking for tiny signs of disrespect.
I'm sorry. I don't blame them.
I'm 42. I'm mature. I'm a pacifist. I haven't been in a fight since college. I honestly can't remember the last time I was fighting mad. But had Cuban wagged his finger at my mother, loud talked her and told her I was a "punk" and/or a "thug" — after I pulled my mother (father and brother) off him — I would have delivered at least one mouth shot."

Maybe I'm going too far, but I thought we moved beyond the days where white men could spew vulgar obscenities at our beautiful queens and get away with it. What's next? Source: Rap-Up.comCannon continues:
Are we going to let this trash say something horrible about our lovely first lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama? Or would Marshall have talked sideways out of his neck like this about Oprah Winfrey? This act of racist bigotry cannot go unnoticed. Calling my wife a "c-word" and a "whore" is way worse than anything Don Imus could have ever said. So trust, repercussions will be served.Cannon raises an interesting point. Given that Eminem has used racist, derogatory language to describe black people, and black women in particular, in previous lyrics, why do so many black people lap up what he lays down?Reading the comment threads surrounding this drama, I am surprised by the number of women and black people defending Eminem when Asher Roth just got excoriated for joking about "nappy headed hoes." And rightly so, I might add.Please explain it to me. Why does the black community continue to support Eminem despite his racist lyrics?"

I loved the line about his two daughters stealing Air Force One and going to New York. And I loved the line about Rahm Emanuel and Mother's Day. The fact that he called out MC Mike, and the clowns at FAKE NEWS made his routine even that much better for the kid.

Hate crimes enhancements turns justice on its head and creates unequal justice under law. Rather than correcting an inequity, like it originally did for blacks, now it creates injustice. Hates crimes creates a class of criminals who are “more guilty,” not because of what they did, but because of what they might have been thinking. It also creates unequal justice for different classes of victims, some who are considered “more worthy” of greater legal protection than others. Thomas Jefferson said, “the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions…” The government is not competent to read a person's mind, much less criminalize his opinions."
