Before I get into this post, I want to acknowledge the blogger, African American Pundit, and thank him for the wonderful work that he has been doing with the Recy Taylor story. I reached out to a few bloggers about the injustice this woman suffered many years ago, but so far Rock is the only one to really get on board. I hope that some of you other bloggers of color will look into her story and leave posts on your sites as well.
So it's President's Day here in A-merry-ca, and although white folks love to cast Negroes as Presidents, -----from Eddie Murphy to Blair Underwood--- we have only had one real black President in these divided states. (Well, a half one at least.) And, because he has been the first, he has been getting a lot of (unfair) pressure from you black folks to deliver. Like Janet Jackson, you want to know what he has done for you lately. Well, I have no problem telling you Negroes that he has done as much for you as he could. He is, after all, the President of all A-merry-cans. You Negroes can only get so much.
His O-ness is facing a very troubled world, and here on the home front the opposition party is over- reaching. They are trying to break unions in Wisconsin, and threatening to shut down the government if they don't get their way. It's not easy being president of these divided states. No wonder the poor guy gets a Day.
Finally, no matter how my girl Beyonce tries to go....ahem, white , it seems that there are still some folks who just won't let her forget that her ass is black. Yes Beyonce, you might as well just embrace your blackness. Just think, if you do, you might get a chance to play the president one day in a movie.
