Is everybody going to hate Chris?


Today was just another day here in A-merry-ca. Or was it? I mean the iPad is here. (Color me not impressed, I still like to turn the pages when I read.) Our first black prez decided to go all Sista Souljah on environmentalist and drill for black gold. And, Catholics all across A-merry-ca are having a crisis of faith for obvious reasons. (Well, most Catholics. The ones with a conscience. The other ones....not so much. )

Anywhooo, tonight I want to talk about Chris Rock.

Seems a video of my man spoofing white folks has surfaced and A-merry-ca is not too pleased.

"They say it's only racist if it's not funny, so is the previously unreleased video for "Crackers," Chris Rock's white-bashing spoof of OutKast's "Hey Ya," a case of beats for the bigoted?In what is sure to spark debate over the thin line between racism and comedy, Rock's version is called "Crackers," a not-so subtle reference to Caucasians. In the four minute clip.."

Oh ohh Chris, don't you have a new movie coming out? This is not a good time to be controversial in A-merry-ca. Nothing says sure to be broke more than a controversial Negro in A-merry-ca.

Anyway, judge for yourselves. I really need to hear from you white folks on this one. You tell us if you find it offensive. I already know what you Negroes are going to say. Double standard?

Before I go, I want to thank you all for the e-mails and comments you sent my way about the comments section on the blog. Some of it was heartfelt and sincere, and some of it was the usual "field Negro I wish you would die" type shit. I want you all to know that I heard you loud and clear and I appreciate the feedback. Thank you.

Alicia, you did much better today. :)

He kept saying the nigger too, he didn't discriminate, so what's the problem.

cactusrose said...

Disculpa, I'm not white but I want to comment!
I was just watching that video, and it reminded me a little of the rolling stones. Just set me too thinking on the great difference between white music and soul music. Between white dance (mainly jumping up and down lol) and Black and Latino dancing, which is so rhythmic.

Mr. Rock did a great job pf spoofing and as for his film, my thoughts are that he's not too worried about that,he's such a funny man, he'll do just fine wait and see!

I thought it was funny, in a stupid, edgy kinda way, but funny... but then I have usually found Chris Rock to be funny.... Not close to the line for me.

If we are doing funny, best quote I read today... also funny:

"Obama is not a brown-skinned anti-war socialist who gives away free health care. You're thinking of Jesus."

Evil Whitey (AKA Blue Eyed Devil) said...

Yawn. I couldn't care less what Chris Rock, or any black person for that matter, thinks about white people. I could stand to be a little funnier though. Chris is usually more on the ball then that.

Another funny thing I heard while watching the Daily Show from last night's Moment of Zen: Sarah Palin and John McCain being interviewed on Greta Van Sustren's show.. He is sitting there with her with a deer in headlights look. Sarah can't stop talking, first about what a great man McCain is and then she goes on about what a great woman Cindy McCain is.. She ends by saying "You know, behind every successful man is a surprised woman."

They could get a lot of white people in black face mocking black entertainers. At the end they could throw nooses around the necks of the blacks in the audience. You'd think that was funny, right? I mean, you're no hypocrite, you're always consistently fair and balanced, kind of like Fox News.

first thing said...

The song speaks some uncomfortable truths, and it was a little funny, I guess. As a comic device I didn't think the song worked with the message all that well-- and I think Chris Rock is real funny usually.

That being said, I think that white people who might be offended by it are just playing games. It's like the quote above by "Evil Whitey" says: white people have the luxury and privilege of "not caring what black people think." White people like him (and me, I suppose) have the luxury of shrugging off uncomfortable truths and epithets directed towards us, because we have the privilege and power to not care. It's that privilege and the way white people wield it that is at the heart of racism and inequality- not just the words.

For me, I would say that after slavery, "Separate But Equal", and Jim Crow, I'd be pretty disgusted if white people were offended just because words in a song called us names.

Take care, FN

Bob said...

To be funny, it needed to be more offensive. Good touches, like the blond humping Chris's leg, & the St. Patricks / Valentine / Confederate Stars & Bars / lawn jockey decor. On the whole, it doesn't pull together. He's been better.

See, the white foks who come to this blog are enlghtened. I am not going to get a good cross section of A-merry-ca from you folks.
I need to get this post over to one of dem conservative blogs. :)

Or, maybe it's because it's Chris Rock. What if it was Paul Mooney?

Any thoughts on Obama drilling? I haven't heard from you leftist about that. I am not a strong environmental person,(not a tree hugger I guess)but I do think that it is important to look out for the planet.

Are we really running short on oil? And what do the people of Virginia think? I am so selfish. I really only blog to learn shit form other people.

this is a feint, a pr stunt like everything else this administration says.

prior to today's announcement, the vast majority of OCS areas were open for business. no longer. Obama may have stated his support for increased energy development in the Eastern Gulf (which requires congressional action) and the Southern Atlantic (which he'll study over the next year), he also announced that he would delay the development of the energy resources off Virginia's coast and lock up vast resources off the Alaskan coast.

so don't worry field, we still won't be developing our own energy resources. this is just to fool the dumb crackers again.

What Chris Rock says or doesn't say doesn't matter much in the scheme of things. Does life suck so much for some people that what a comedian says makes that much of a difference that it would send them over the edge? People. need. to. get. a. life.

BTW, I haven't watched the video, or whatever. I like C. R. anyway, no matter whatever he could say.

Mithras said...

I thought it was pretty funny, although I agree with Bob that Chris should have thought about making it more offensive. The dude on the couch should have had a Confederate flag t-shirt, for example. But the white (gay?) fan who fainted and "just want to fuck your daughter"- priceless.

The best part of Chris's work is when he gets white people to laugh, then think "this is actually pretty horrible, should I be laughing at it?".

Trapped in SC said...

Yes, it is a stunt. But boy, what a good one. It put the republicans in the position of having to agree with Obama on something, lest they get stuck with the "obstructionist" label. And it also has the benefit of being something most of the right agrees on. And yes, Obama is being hypocritical to the environmentalists who supported his candidacy, but he's president now and he knows that high gas prices translates into low poll numbers.

And it is correct that we have to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. So he opens up offshore drilling, while at the same time, reestablishing the construction of nuclear power plants, and putting more resources into wind and solar.

Oil and natural gas are the bridges that will get us to the others. And every barrel we can drill here is one less we have to get from Theywanttokillusastan.

Anonymous said...

Hello Mr. Field,

I think what the Prez is doing is this: He said we shouldn't be dependant on foreign oil, and that we should develop alternative fuel sources---but it will take YEARS before those sources, and the auto companies, are ready, although they are getting ready now.

Meantime, it will take years to start up the drilling process (I just heard this on the news from some hoo-ha oil honcho), but probably not as long as it will take to get the alternative fuel/autos all straight.

So---the Prez is preparing to wean us off of the foreign oil tit, and securing some petroleum sources for the future. Although we may see a future with no petroleum for CARS/TRUCKS, etc, which consume quite a bit, we WILL need petroleum for other applications.

In all things, the Prez looks far ahead; he plays the long game, and I think that's what he's doing with this drilling proposal. After all, when he was campaigning, he did say it might come to this. And no, I'm not a worshipper or apologist for the Prez. I just study his moves.

but if you look closely at what he actually said, he is still limiting most offshore oil drilling. also, a bunch of permit applications for new nuke plants were submitted during the bush administration, and a couple of projects were actually given the go ahead, but don't hold your breath waiting for a bunch of new nuke plants being built anytime soon

@ FN;

"Any thoughts on Obama drilling?"

MHO is that it will go down as one of the greatest political maneuvers in the history of his presidency.

Just as the states...Virginia in the lead...are gearing up to file a lawsuit against the feds (which the senator from Arkansas has rightfully pointed out why it's a lost cause)...Obama comes up with this.

And...

He ties into defense using the strategy that while we are getting new military equipment our new gear is going to be fuel efficient...

Add to that...

Who is going to complain? Certainly not the senators or the governor of Virgina...definitely not the military.

And...

Obama can say if we are going to fight a war...we certainly cannot pay them to be at way with us...

And...

Now everyone on the Hill has something to make deals on the side with :)

Low & Country: Help me translate Rachael Maddow. I realize that she has an "Anti-Republican show". I get it. However she asked "What did Obama GET from yielding to the GOP?"

For some reason she couldn't see that the NATION GETS MORE ENERGY SUPPLIES IN LINE WITH THE GROWING DEMANDS. Why is this a REPUBLICAN position?

I get the sense that had Obama refused to drill but instead offered 10 M new miniture windmills to be mounted on top of every new car - Maddow (and you) would use this plan to fight the evil GOP criticism.

I simply don't understand you all some times.

Is it possible that the PAINFUL FACTS were presented before Obama and as PRESIDENT rather than unteathered ideologue - he was forced to put forth a realistic strategy?

"Is it possible that the PAINFUL FACTS were presented before Obama and as PRESIDENT rather than unteathered ideologue - he was forced to put forth a realistic strategy?"

This is the case with both a lot of intarweb liberals and conservatives - they mistake The President as who he is for who they want him to be. Liberals see Obama as some sort of left of center guy and act surprised when he governs mostly from the center right. Conservatives see himas the second coming of Joseph Stalin and end up looking teh stupid when he does so.

Why this is, I don't know, but there you go.

Constructive Feedback said...

[quote]act surprised when he governs mostly from the center right[/quote]

George Johnson:

Can you articulate the means by which Obama is governing from the "center-right"?

The only way this can be is if LEFT means that he use the Nuclear weapons that he has taken aim away from Russia and instead use them to blow up the White House as a means of symbolically repudiating the American government's imperialist, repressive past.

Barack Obama holds up LEFT-WING meat just out of reach of the right wing and pokes a stick at them to taunt them. The first year of his presidency saw a well paced strategy of UNDOING some "Bush-era" policies. Every time he "steps in it" with the left (by retaining the institutional standards - what YOU CALL "right of center") he merely throws out some CHUM that Rachael Maddow, et al, can cleave upon and use to continue their fight against the evil, racist GOP.

I still can't figure how a man who attacks the "evil Insurance companies" then tells his enemies "What are you guys worrying about? I just gave you 30 million new customers". AS IF he did so based upon gratis. Once the NUMBERS come in long after the "union contract" was signed - THEN we will see if the "Death Panels" was indeed the "biggest lie" being told in the debate.

You are obviously are unfamiliar with the time honored tradition of politicians saying different things to different audiences.

"Can you articulate the means by which Obama is governing from the "center-right"?"

I think it might be better if you goggled "hippie punching" frankly. I'd probably lose most of it's flavor trying to explain it.

I think the lesson here is the "We, the People..." is somewhat incapable of grappling with who the President actually is. FWIW, I don't think it's ALL because he's black. Bill Clinton had the same thing about him. Reagan to an extent too....

"Homosexuality is not a pathology...

You can use the DSM to cover for homosexuals if you want- but it STILL remains a obvious problem when all of the priests who abused and molested those deaf boys were homosexuals!

The obvious bottom line of "safety" is this: NO HOMOSEXUALS should be around children. Period.

Homosexual priests have lustful preying instincts for boys, instead of healthy protective paternal instincts for them. They also shouldn't be priests, because apparently from their behaviors they are atheists. What they have done to God's innocent vulnerable children in HUGE numbers is blatant proof.

It's scary and even worse, you won't hear ONE gay/lesbian outraged by it!

Btw, the DSM has been wrong before and has had significant revisions over the years to correct erroneous diagnoses of humans and treatment. Science has been wrong a lot. When it comes to the human mind science knows very little. It is still ignorant about it.

George Johnson said...

I'd also add Nixon to that list of presidents that we can't seem to come to grips with, because he's often seen as having been conservative (the EPA, for example, was created under Nixon), but he's more widely seen as being a dishonest self serving prick.

Which I'd argue is accurate.

soyinkafan said...

It's satire, brilliant as always, and frankly on the lighthearted side for Rock. Chris Rock's an artist, he has a point of view, he challenges the audience. Some art gets in your face. Good. However, I have yet to hear Rock dehumanize anyone, and I've caught most of his work.

He does exactly what artists are supposed to do, so yes, double standard. It's fairly dense to claim that satire about racism must be racism itself.

(For census purposes on this subject: I'm white)

Lady-Cracker said...

It was a funny spoof. Shake'em! Shake'em! Shake'em! And I agree with someup up thread that people of non-color are in position to whine. I also really like the lawn jockey's as Cracker Haters. I think I have seen Chris Rock be funnier--I am not sure if the dragged to death and raped grandmothers, can just not ever be that "funny" or if he should have been more outrageous.

Lady-Cracker said...

I pretty much keep up with your posts Field, but I gave up reading the comments some weeks ago. However, looking at the low number of comments, I realized that there were no warring elements so I read this one and commented.

The Purple Cow said...

It's a little tired, unimaginative, moderately amusing, and not even vaguely racist.

Rock's problem is that the old cliche is true - by and large white Americans just don't get irony.

Field Heffer said...

I'm not offended by the video and I enjoy satire...although this was not as witty as Rock can be.

Then this thread evolved over to priests and the molesting of children. My two cents: the sexual abuse of children is not an issue of one's sexuality (married men do it, straight single men do it...grandfathers, brothers, stepfathers...priests, coaches...well you get the picture)...but more about one's sense of masculinity folded in to the social context.

Ol' Chris... not bad, not bad, but I still prefer Paul Mooney. Moms Mabley bot some pretty good, wicked clouts in, too.

Mr. Mooney has more of a Mort Sahl with rougher edges, makes you have to use a bit of thought, but he's generally on the nose in his assessments.

But, some of us got our education of the "broader view" of race/class in a more demonstable way.

In 1968, right about this time of year, we were in a situation where we came under "friendly fire", and I was one of about a half dozen that made it out on their feet, or even had any feet at all.

Our CO was incensed, knew it was "accidently on purpose" and complained to two staff officers who had caused this to be done, he was told, "Aw, hell, there's plenty more niggers and rednecks where they came from".

Officialdoms view of race kind of woke me up a bit.

Chris Rock is too funny! Sometimes I get tired of racial humor but he is funny. His movie Good Hair was a masterpiece. He is awesome.

Jody said...

To answer your question about off-shore drilling... it is more of a political stunt than a real solution.... Read up on Peak Oil... Drilling for oil is not a solution to our energy problems... it just feeds a bad habit v investing in research and development for sustainable alternatives. Even worse than the idea of drilling, Obama says he supports nuclear power.... that pisses me off more.... these two "solutions" move us further down the road to environmental oblivion.

beemer said...

This white guy thinks it's pretty funny.

M. Rigmaiden said...

Jody nuclear power needn't be all bad. There are ways to use it and keep reusing the spent fuel so that the waste leaked into the environment is damner negligible.

I'm guessing you are talking about nuclear fission reactors because fusion reactors would produce almost no waste at all.


Terrapower, I think you'll appreciate this.

JRR2OK said...

All in all, I'd put it in the top half of CR's stuff: definitely not tripe, but definitely not fall out gut buster material. Regarding the content, maybe I'm just not awake yet or just a typical self-loathing white liberal, but I couldn't find anything that crossed over into hate land. I felt Chris kept everything in reasonable Satireland.

M. Rigmaiden said...

This link is even better!

And what is interesting is that they actually do use fission process in the Terrapower design and waste is negligible.

Who knew Chris Rock was that pissed off? Frankly, I think the video shows that he's getting old. From the selection of the song- How long ago was "Hey Ya" released? Six years? To the same old history -lynching, dragging. (Not that I'm saying we aren't reminded everyday. He could have gone with the teabagger who spit on Rep. Emmanuel.)It just strikes me as a dollar late and a day short.

As for the pedophile priests, why is anyone surprised that the people who join an all male organization which requires that they NEVER have sex for the rest of their lives, including masturbation, are people with issues? The priesthood was a refuge for men with sexual issues that they couldn't work out in real life. Not to say that there aren't people who joined because they want to serve God, but the priesthood was rife with damaged souls running from the world. And if you can't deal with the complexities of women and making a pass at a man might get you a beat down, who's left? Children. They're innocent. They are easily intimidated and and you can use their own guilt against them so that they don't tell. I'm stunned that anyone is surprised by this.

Stax I wear a natural now but am thinking of putting in braids for a change. The problem is that the synthetic hair is like plastic and has an adverse environmental impact and the human hair comes from sacreligious sources nine times out of ten.

As to Chris Rock, he went through a preachy phase when he was in DOGMA that time frame and since then he's lightened his step a little bit. His voice makes me laugh. He is just funny!

As for the pedophile priests, why is anyone surprised that the people who join an all male organization which requires that they NEVER have sex for the rest of their lives, including masturbation, are people with issues? The priesthood was a refuge for men with sexual issues that they couldn't work out in real life. Not to say that there aren't people who joined because they want to serve God, but the priesthood was rife with damaged souls running from the world. And if you can't deal with the complexities of women and making a pass at a man might get you a beat down, who's left? Children. They're innocent. They are easily intimidated and and you can use their own guilt against them so that they don't tell. I'm stunned that anyone is surprised by this.


That's pretty close to what I wnated to say, khia123. The Catholic church was getting desperate for males to serve as priests. They sort of went with a "don't ask, don't tell" policy, accepting any male who would join the priesthood.

The thing was, to be a Priest, you are supposed to be CELIBATE. PERIOD. No matter which way you swing. They thought it would be the same, hetero or homo. They were wrong. You don't hear that many stories about priests abusing young girls. Seems like you hear more about that in the Protestant realm.

A lot of homo's found a "safe" haven in the priesthood.

What's the old NAMBLA motto? "Sex before eight, or it's too late".

The gift that keeps on giving, congressional representatives from the 4th district of Georgia.

Yesterday, the successor to Cynthia Mckinney, Rep. Hank Johnson questioned Admiral Robert Willard about the Navy's plans to relocate 8,000 personnel and their families to Guam. Johnson noted at some length that the island is narrow; Johnson reviews the island's dimensions from its "widest level" to its "smallest level," "from shore to shore."

Johnson observes that the island is only seven miles wide at the "least widest place on the island." Johnson inquires into the island's total area given its widest and narrowest dimensions. I think we might be missing the necessary variables, but Admiral Willard helps the congressman. He concedes that Guam is a small island.

Johnson then gives voice to his deep fear regarding the Navy's plans: "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated it will tip over and capsize."

Admiral Willard manfully responds: "We don't anticipate that." He deserves some kind of decoration for his gentle handling of Rep. Johnson.

Hank is a graduate of Texas Southern University's Thurgood Marshall School of Law. Is that where you went, Field?

pick yo face up here:

"When the Dalai Lama has been asked whether homosexuality is a sin, for instance, he has explained that according to the holy writings, it is. He doesn't go for revisionism. But then he is likely to add that we all have sins, and in the eyes of Buddhism, all sins are equal".

Even if the Buddha thought homosexuality is a sin it is time that we made revisions to it, because the Buddha himself taught us not to accept any teachings without first questioning its validity.

World Congress. In the interim, as he stated during his visit with LGBT Buddhists in 1997, I believe he reflected on several of the supposed methods of committing “sexual misconduct” and realized, as he hinted at that time, that they may have been shaped by their culture and point in history. I also believe that he followed through on his desire to learn more about LGBT people through scientific study.

It seems to me that the DL has done/is doing exactly what LGBT Christians of all faith traditions want their leadership to do–come into the 21st Century and realize that the Bible should be referenced in the context of place, time and culture. I’m surprised no one has mentioned that it has gone through several translations into its current form and many things could easily have been mistranslated “accidentally on purpose.”

http://www.enabling.org/ia/vipassana/Archive/T/Trembath/buddhismAndHomosexualityTrembath.html

The sayings of the Buddha, as recorded in the Pali Canon, do not I believe include any explicit reference to homosexuality or to homosexual acts. This has been taken to mean that the Buddha did not consider that one's sexual orientation was relevant to his message, which was how to escape from suffering and achieve enlightenment. If it was not important enough to mention, homosexuality could not have been considered a barrier to one's moral and spiritual development.

On the other hand, the Buddha's teachings in no way exhort us to a life of hedonistic pursuit of pleasure, sexual or otherwise. While the Buddha did not deny the existence of enjoyment in this world, he pointed out that all worldly pleasure is bound up with suffering, and enslavement to our cravings will keep us spinning in a vortex of disappointment and satiation. The Buddhist's objective is not to eliminate sensual pleasures but to see them as they are through the systematic practice of mindfulness.

One feature of Buddhism which may interest gays and lesbians is that the teachings place no particular value on procreation. Marriage and the raising of children are seen as positive but are by no means compulsory. On the contrary, celibacy is in most traditions considered to be a requirement for those seeking higher levels of development as Buddhists. Monks and nuns take vows of strict celibacy, and even pious lay people undertake to be celibate at certain times in order to pursue their mental and spiritual development. This means that from the religious perspective there is no stigma which is necessarily attached to being unmarried and childless, although there may of course be social and cultural pressures which override this.

My Dear Philly Friend Filled Negro:

I am trying to understand the framework of your evaluation.

You say that a measure of INDEPENDENCE is by the degree to which you CRITICIZE a party?

Please note that - without even reading these qualifying posts from Jody, Mellaneous, Low & Country and WhiteBowieSteve - I can assure you that they were CRITICISM against the Democrats for NOT BEING LEFTIST ENOUGH.

You don't seem to be able to contextualize the critique of Cornel West, Dyson and Smiley against Obama.
They are NOT seeking to shoot his presidency out of the sky as they did with evil Bush. They are ONLY seeking to NUDGE HIM LEFTWARD!!!

Do you see Filled Negro - my goal is NOT to get you to become a Republican. IT WOULD NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE. You would merely be a "Sold Out Republican" then, with elephants on your shirt cuffs.

Instead I am working to PUT PROGRESSIVISM ON TRIAL!!!!! Make it JUSTIFY its own EXISTENCE among the "Least of These".

I am not quite sure why you necessitate my criticism of the evil, racist Republicans. What YOU call "my defense of Republicans" is actually my EXPOSE' OF YOU!!!!

There is no way in HELL that Sarah Palin and Michael Steele should be more popular topics in AfroSpear blogs that PURPORT TO represent the best interests of our community. Instead it is YOU who show who you really are: "Democrats In Blackface"!!!

Not even my admission that YOU HAVE WON THE BATTLE!!! You stand ALONE, in control over the institutions of the Black community - afford you the ability to ACCEPT THE CONSEQUENCES and ACCOUNTABILITY of the results that have been rendered while you are in control.

The reasons for my disposition is clear, Filled Negro.

You and others occupy UNCHECKED SPACE within the secret space of our "Community Consciousness Nucleus". The bulk of your efforts are on the behalf of the EXTERNAL forces of PROGRESSIVISM and the DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

I have the audacity to demand that YOU wear a VISITORS BADGE and require an ESCORT where ever you walk in this secure space.

When it comes to you an escort for you to go to the bathroom - I'll let Steve hold your appendage as you relieve yourself. We can't be too careful with security in this protected space.

If you can find where I ADVOCATE FOR the GOP rather than CHECK YOU when you OBFUSCATE toward them as a means of looking past the INTERNAL ISSUES - please find it.

I have found, Filled Negro that the WORST indictment against you is for me to focus upon the land that you CLAIM to be working to improve via your antics.

When I do WhiteBowieSteve, MR and Low & Country accuse me of "showing the worst of the Black community".

In truth you are merely acting as those who sought to protect the WHITE ESTABLISHMENT in the past have done. They want to showcase the "good" that they have done while blowing off the presence of the "Dead Negroes" that serve as "scars in the underbelly".

Ida B Wells was a hero for exposing these scars.
Today Ida B Wells would be looking INTO the Black community and would be called "Aunt Jemimah" for her "disloyalty".

Steve fails to see that he is marketing the notion that the way one can get CONNECTED with the world of Black people is to GO TO THE HOOD and "emotionally connect with our POVERTY".

Again - For Steve and others who think like him - it matters not that there is an image of the "Black Poor" that is used for political purposes. As long as it is put in terms of a TRANSACTION where Steve stands to benefit as a consequence - he is willing to "assume the position" as a poster child.

If someone makes the MISTAKE of characterizing Black people as "The Least of These", in an UNSOLICITED FASHION and thus it is used to IMPUGN - Steve and others will feign OFFENSE, seeking out "Poor White People" as a means of blunting the attack.

Getty Pictures could take the same photo of the "Black poor" and market it to both left and right. It matters not to Steve. It ONLY matters the context of the TRANSACTION and how he can politically benefit.

I found this funny but humour is often a matter of taste. Offensive? Puh-leeze. The anonymous crackers who claim to be offended are probably the same people who couldn't wait to email everybody in their trailerpark the "Obama the Magic Negro" song.

Chris uses humour to examine racial attitudes, which places him squarely in a rich tradition of American comedy. That some of his other routines were funnier is beside the point. "Born Suspect" still makes me laugh after all these years.

True, "Crackers" doesn't approach the brilliance of Dave Chappelle's character, Clayton Bigsby, but it is still worthy in its own right.

I hope I never have to find out, but I know that it happens, regardless of ethnicity or skin color.

Back then American industry was clamoring for the "tired, poor huddles masses yearning to be free" to work in the coal mines, steel mills, factories and docks.

That's what motivated my grandparents and their cousins to leave rural James Island, SC and move to Harlem.

There was UPWARD MOBILITY for the poor.

Those jobs are gone now.

As a matter of fact, speaking of Soundview and the South Bronx....the first job my grandpa had up arrival in NYC was as a longshoreman at the Hunts Point docks.

Hunts Point Market was the lifeblood of the neighborhood and it employed thousands of people at the docks, the fish, fruit and meat markets.

The docks closed down in the 70s and the market eventually shut down in the mid eighties.

And what you have in the South Bronx today is the result.

Poverty and depravity.

"Yes, but most pedophiles are not homosexual. Heterosexuals make up the greater number of pedophiles. Priestly or not."

Farmer and Field...the Post and the recent shocking news is about the "CATHOLIC CHURCH". We are talking about the "Catholic Church"...can you hear that?

There have been "unconscionable" abuses of deaf boys/alter boys in the Catholic Church over decades BY HOMOSEXUALS. Yeah, those deaf boys were preyed upon by pedophiles.

But it is also true that they were 100% homosexuals, and it would be foolish for the Church to deny, minimize, avoid or ignore that obvious fact.

To continue to have homosexual priests around vulnerable boys is like letting the fox guard the chicken house. Foxes do what foxes do, no matter how we may wish them to be different.

And God Created Virginia ..
God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.

He inquired, "Where have you been?"

God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things..

God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel , impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

"That's Virginia , the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people from Virginia are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things"

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance...

God smiled, "Right next to Virginia is Washington , DC . Wait till you see the idiots I put there."

If that's OK, why not make the women shower with the men? What's the difference? Heck, those women are supposed to have had the same military training as the men, and we all know men & women are equal in everything, so I'm sure those girls could take care of their badassed selves, should the need arise. (If you know what I mean).

Yeah. Equality. As long as some are more equal when it suits them to be.

Why do you think the black upper and middle class still does not support Republicans?

"*how many buddhist monks u hear molesting boys
*they celibate"

The majority of Buddhist monks are heterosexual men who live by Buddhist precepts and spend their lives purifying their minds. For a monk to 'even' consider molesting a child would be quite disturbing and shameful to his own conscience and mind.

Pastors, ministers, and priests in Western religions see their profession as just another job to make a living like everybody else.

However, there are Christian monks in monasteries away from the cities who have the same mindset and conscience as many Buddhist monks.

But then again, it's pretty self-evident the black grievance community has no intention of living up to the standards of conduct they themselves set.

The rest of us just want to get along and try and heal our communities, with solutions, not shakedowns or accusations.

Black social conservatives can't answer that question truthfully. They don't understand why or how that the majority of blacks find their views abhorrent.

Even if most blacks are upwardly mobile, WE STILL DO NOT FORGET FROM WHENCE WE CAME.

Karen said...

@Agape:
You are one of the commenters here that I sincerely enjoy reading, and I always learn much from your viewpoint.

However, I must disagree with everything you post:
------------------

""Any thoughts on Obama drilling?"

"MHO is that it will go down as one of the greatest political maneuvers in the history of his presidency."


Or not. Most of his opposition rightly views this as cynical opportunism, and already the RW blogs are mocking him for it.

MHO is one of the greatest political maneuvers in the history of his presidency is how he demolished all his good will and majorities in both houses in an astonishingly short period of time, vis-a-vis his open mocking of Middle America and jamming through of O-care, and contributed to the banishment of the Dem party to the fringes of the far left Progressives and the extreme elements of the AA community, destroying the unified Tent strategy that served the Dems so well.
---------------------------


"Just as the states...Virginia in the lead...are gearing up to file a lawsuit against the feds (which the senator from Arkansas has rightfully pointed out why it's a lost cause)...Obama comes up with this."


Stating that the lawsuit from VA is a "lost cause" is wishful thinking on the part of Progressives who want to convince those who oppose O-Care to accept it as a fait accompli and move on.

Given the current make-up of SCOTUS, I would give a bookie money to play any side.

The VA case is being handled by Judge Hudson, a conservative republican appointee to the bench.

There is just as much, if not more, commentary on the right that the lawsuit does make a good case for over reach by the Fed govt.
----------------------------------


"And...

He ties into defense using the strategy that while we are getting new military equipment our new gear is going to be fuel efficient..."


Well, no one on the right is buying that, and it's not a good case.
I predict that if the R's win big in 2010, you are going to see lots of funding battles over the military.
And Teh Won is going to try and cancel military upgrades to pay for his pet projects .... just like the F-22 decision. The same arguments made about the F-35 were made about the F-18, that a single platform can be all things to all people. As I have heard quipped more than once, the F-18 is universal -- it universally sucks at all the missions they try and build it for. The idea that you can stuff at the countermeasure and jamming techie stuff from a 4 man Prowler into a 2 man smaller F-18 is foolish for example.... The same can be said of the F-35. You can have excellence in all areas of air missions with the same platform aircraft.... it's just not possible.
-------------------------
"Add to that...

Who is going to complain? Certainly not the senators or the governor of Virgina...definitely not the military."


Wrong on all counts !
;)
----------------------------
And...

Obama can say if we are going to fight a war...we certainly cannot pay them to be at way with us...

And...

Now everyone on the Hill has something to make deals on the side with :)

Peace.

What they will never admit to is that today's Republican party is grounded in white resentment.

Exactly why you didn't hear shit from tea partiers when Bush expanded Medicare, blew up the federal deficit and got us into the invasion and occupation of Iraq with an outright lie.

They're hysterical because a black man is in the White House.

That's why they say that "their country" has been taken and they're going to get it back even if takes some killing in the process.

And black conservativism is grounded in self-hatred.

Which is why they will never attract more than the 8% of the handkerchief heads and buckdancers they've had for 40 years.

----------------------------------

Karen, what you say has merit. What I don't understand is why they are continuously trying to reduce the importance of the Tenth Amendment in the media. How in tarnation could a Tenth Amendment lawsuit NOT have merit? This is why we are the United States. Locales have culture, mores, things that separate them from each other. The needs of differing locales vary depending on a wide variety of factors and the problem with one size fits all FEDERAL legislation is that it tends to negate the will and the particular needs of the people.

Healthcare reform should have been the feds giving the states monies and the states giving the monies to the counties to best use it for their populations.

Some beaurocrat in San Francisco may not know what my needs are in Modesto even, so that is why the power of the locale is important...

Maybe for you, it's ok. But for many heterosexuals in the military, it is not ok to be showering or bunking with a homosexual. It is quite disturbing to the mind and you can't run a military in the US with men in that frame of mind.

It might be a nice to dream or idea to exclaim, "straight men shouldn't feel that way!" But many do, and that is a fact.

Why would you want to weaken or risk the nation's defense over some impractical idea? Isn't it enough that they are willing to fight and die for you?

Why must you pressure and stress them more?

___________________________________

They tried that with welfare reform in the 1990's as part of Newt's Contract with America.

For that to work:

There would have to be rules written that would specify that the monies only be used for health care. No payments into the general fund to offset tax relief, no creative accounting, none of that shit.

The amount distributed to the states would have to adjusted based on inflation as well as economical trending; Also that would have been ideal had a true public option passed that would have limited the amount of money used for low-income recipients as well as providing a floor for fees and out of pocket costs.

But still a good idea, though.

All,
I've been reading this blog since late summer of 2007 and have always enjoyed reading most of the perspectives here.

I've also been thankful to the new places that the blog has taken me: I love reading Agape's insight, RM's sincerity, Black Diaspora's comments are always beautifully crafted, and now I have a new blog to read and enjoy - Redbone Girl's. And a friendship with AB -- who says cats and dogs can't leave together?

That being said, I'm one of those that FN is proud to run off his blog. There is no enjoyment to being here anymore, the circular logic is too much for me to take, and I don't feel most here are sincerely interested in considering any viewpoints outside of the narrowly accepted memes from your community.

I came over today because of a message from AB -- girl, you've done good holding your own -- I wouldn't worry.

However, as a final parting statement, I think all of you truly fail to realize that the double standards that you polish and hoard is going to come back and bite you --- hard.

There is overwhelming -- and I mean, overwhelming -- bipartisan opposition to Obama and his agenda. I am seeing incredible alliances and coalitions here in my own community between groups that were barely on speaking terms with each other before this.

I think overall that is a healthy thing.

Well quite frankly that's YOUR problem, not the homosexual's.

"Feelings" are not a valid reason to discriminate.

And as I pointed out, you've probably already bunked, showered and or dressed with a homosexual, just didn't know it because it wasn't an issue.

As long as he (or she) does not harrass or assault you, who should it be?

And before somebody goes the "you must be gay" route, let me say that I am a heterosexual black male born and raised in the inner city.

According to studies I am supposed to be the most virulent homophobe alive.

And as a teenager and young adult, although I was never a hater, I did make fun of effeminate men and used the "f" word profusely as an insult.

About 20 years ago a very close relative of mine came out of the closet and with that went every ugly stereotype for me.

Nobody "recruited" this person, they were not promiscous, they were not flamboyant or any other "gay" label.

I've grown up on this issue and I'm proud of that.

Although I get ribbed from time to time from some of my more macho friends whenever this issue comes up.

"Yo Steve I noticed you been wearin a lot of bright colors lately"

Shit like that.
