More on you know who.

It is day 27 since he killed Trayvon Martin, and George Zimmerman is still free. We live in quite a country. A celebrity with zero talent is flour bombed and the person throwing the flour is arrested immediately as if they just shot the president. Flour!

"I think 'What if that was some other substance? What if that person had a dangerous weapon?" Kardashian told US. "And so we are definitely changing things up a little bit, amping up security, taking some measures, and... I'm gonna definitely deal with it because it is not acceptable."

Yes, God forbid she had thrown some skittles at you.

And I see that it didn't take long for Mr. Zimmerman's lawyer to use the some of his friends are black defense. His lawyer, Craig Sonner, said that he actually mentored a "black kid...."

First of all, if what I read about George Zimmerman's background is true, that kid should have probably been mentoring him.

Totally off topic. But I have to blog about it before I forget. There is a story out that Dick Cheney had a heart transplant. I just hope that he gets a human heart this time. He had been on the waiting list for 20 long months. I guess those "death panels" republicans like to talk about spared his life.

Finally, I need you all to tell me what you think of the following story. I know I chase the Big R a lot, but sometimes the Big R can be so silly that I don't even feel like chasing it.

"A black ninth-grader in Fairfax Country, Virginia was reading a Langston Hughes poem in class when his teacher instructed him to read it blacker, The Washington Post reports.

As Jordan Shumate recalls the incident to The Post, the teacher didn’t hold back in punches in expressing her displeasure with how he was reading the poems.
“She told me, ‘Blacker, Jordan — c’mon, blacker. I thought you were black,’ ” said Shumate, who is African American.
When he refused to comply with her ridiculous request, the teacher read the poem herself. “She sounded like a maid in the 1960s,” Shumate told The Post. “She read the poem like a slave, basically.”
Watch a video report of this story to see Shumate express his shock at his teacher’s behavior" [Source]

I swear these poor young black men can't buy a break in A-merry-ca these days. If you speak correctly and with proper diction they tell you to speak "blacker". And, If you wear a hoodie, they shoot you to death.

Self-pity will get you nowhere. That kid should have read it like his teacher was trying tell him to read it. With black passion! Instead, he read it like a white person, which lost its black punch.

First, it ought to be evident by now nothing much is going to happen to Zimmerman.

Secondly, I resent you putting Kim Kardashian down as a celebrity without talent. Obviously she has a lot of talent. Otherwise, she wouldn't be as famous as she is. FYI: she is idolized as a great actress on stage and in real life by millions around the world.

Pray that she doesn't read your blog. If she does you can count on a big law suit coming your way. And make no mistake about it, YOU-Mr. Fields- will surely lose...BIG TIME! Now you leave one of my favorite actresses alone.

Anybody who is looking for that no-acting-worn-out-worn-down-drugged-out Lisa Turtle ought to STFU.

LOL ay Field, you're muy comico tonight! and as usual right on the money!

I used to eat Skittles a lot, and I have four hoodies, so I'm reckoning if I lived around the Zimmerrator, I'd be lucky to be alive! :)

That teacher should be dismissed immediately! Immediately! If she didn't know any better, then she definitely should NOT be teaching!

There's no second chances for shit like that!

Desert, I am surprised at you! I mean, I thought you were part Pershing and I know no Iranian would be caught dead in a hoodie. What's the matter with you?

Leave those fucking hoodies alone. If something were to happen to you with a hoodie on, I don't know what I would do. I'd Probably jump off the Golden Gate Bridge because blogging on FN wouldn't be the same without you.

As a matter of fact, I'm going to do a dry run in case you get shot with one of your damn hoodies on.

I think I'll stop by Granny's house on the way. She might want to come along just to watch, in case someday she might want to jump too.

hey, I just went to the video The Field linked, and I'm pretty sure the Zimmerator is NOT Cuban, not that it matters, but he looks like he's from Peru or Columbia or Nicaragua,even Mexican maybe!

I'm pretty sure it'll come out in the trial that he's from South America somewhere. Not that it matters, I'm just saying.

Anonymous said...

Well, if he's not Cuban, then he certainly is Mexican. Now that I look at the picture he could be Mexican if not Cuban. Hell, both racists are racists.

One thing for sure, that color-aroused theory came from Brazil by some brother who lives there! It just goes to show this color aroused stuff is off the charts. But Field bought it, hook line and sinker.

Field will believe anything from Brazil. But Field lives in Philly so that explains why.

It is quite a country, Field. Would you prefer the kind of country where you and the rest of negro America could just decide Zimmerman was guilty from what you read in the papers, and you could go down there and lynch him?

As far as Zimmerman is concerned, I am not really expecting anything to happen until the grand jury convenes next month. But I am wondering...why does no one know where this guy is? I know the media in Florida knows how to hound people day and night (Casey Anthony, anyone?) So how has no one spotted this guy?

As far as that teacher is concerned, I said a few days ago that I was very happy that I never had any teachers like that growing up, and 99% of my teachers were white.

Don't you folks know that Zimmerman is no longer in Florida? I am amazed that Blacks aren't even asking where he is. I overheard some Whites laughing about how Blacks miss inquiring about important things like, "Where is he?"

FYI: He is either in Cuba, or in Mexico. Either way, he can't be touched by Florida or the US or all the grand juries in the world.

As much as I hate to admit it, "This case is closed". Isn't that right, Field?"

But since Field and others continue to ignore my importance, I will leave just like Stacey Dash of Clueless left her recent movie. I don't need this shit.

I'm a poet. That kid's teacher is really stupid. But I've had stupid teachers, too. I knew they were stupid. The smart ones confounded me & rattled my brain in different ways, because they wanted me to get inside something so I wouldn't be stupid. Here's Langston himself reading the poem that caused the stir. He doesn't over-dramatize it or exaggerate the poem for a "dialect" effect. Like all great poets, Langston gives us the voice to read it. We don't have to "act."

FYI. Chaney is a good man and I BET he outlives all you FN folks, including YOU, Mr. Field! They don't make people like Chaney to die at a young age. They make them to live forever!

But YOU, Mr. Field, won't last as long because you aren't as durable. You are always crying about a good man like Chaney. Don't you know that you are creating bad karma for YOUrself?. Karma is a bitch, isn't it?

Salman Rushdie said...

For all those Nation of Islam Men out there. I know it's confusing on the rules for beating your wife. So here is a book by Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, renowned Islamic author. He will help you with those difficult decision in how to keep your wife under control and beat her properly.

salam alaikum my brothers

The book is extremely compassionate it tells you “the husband should treat the wife with kindness and love, even if she tends to be stupid and slow sometimes.”

It also should help you let your wife know who is boss under Islam

"Page 45 contains the rights of the husband, which include his wife’s inability to leave “his house without his permission,” and that his wife must “fulfil his desires” and “not allow herself to be untidy ... but should beautify herself for him ... ”

In terms of physical punishment, the book advises that a husband may scold her, “beat by hand or stick,” withhold money from her or “pull (her) by the ears,” but should “refrain from beating her excessively.”

quantum0d0 said...

Now, Field . . . Langston Hughes was a black poet who wrote some of his poetry in dialect. You know, kind of like Tupac?

Imagine if I got up in front of a classroom and stiffly recited Tupac lyrics like Frasier Krane. Someone would no doubt tell me to do it 'blacker', too.

Of course, the teacher is a twit, but she's right about how a Langston Hughes poem was MEANT to be read (as in, meant BY Langston Hughes). Just as Tupac was meant be spat like the ill ass shit it is. I just keeps it rill homey.

Desertflower said...

I've listened to Langston Hughes reciting and I believe he recited in his own voice without added inflections.

So perhaps that teacher should have a listen too as part of her education.

Desertflower said...

Field that's so true! So let's keep the Zimmerator away from the Bieber too for sure LOL!

North American Negroes, the Zimmerman defense may be playing its cards close to their vests.

We may end up seeing their hold cards when it is the most embarrassing to us, the North American Negroe people.

If after all the marching, protesting, yelling screaming, state investigations, federal investigations, ...

date and time stamped photos and videos of Zimmerman's bruised and battered face and
head are then put on display by the Zimmerman defense team; we the North American Negroe will probably lose what little empathy and international credibility that we do now have.

So hush, and wait for the evidence.

Desert Flower, while I don't want to be contentious or to minimize the issue of racial stereotyping in general, I'm also against obfuscation and political correctness that paints an inaccurate picture. I think it does more harm than good. I'm apt to say there's plenty of bad stuff in the world without making it up when it's not really there. I think that only perpetuates ignorance and it's symptoms such as stereotypes.

The fact is Langston Hughes wrote most of his poetry in impeccably proper English, but in some of it he used dialect to illustrate the educational level of his subjects.

I'm sure you did hear Langston Hughes reciting his poetry in educated English. He was a very eloquent man, to say the least. However, it's hard to imagine lines like these being spoken in formal English -

Mother to Son - by Langston Hughes

"Well, son, I'll tell you:
Life for me ain't been no crystal stair.
It's had tacks in it,
And splinters,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor --
Bare.
But all the time
I'se been a-climbin' on,
And reachin' landin's,
And turnin' corners,
And sometimes goin' in the dark
Where there ain't been no light.
So boy, don't you turn back.
Don't you set down on the steps
'Cause you finds it's kinder hard.
Don't you fall now --
For I'se still goin', honey,
I'se still climbin',
And life for me ain't been no crystal stair."

Here he clearly uses dialect to illustrate the mother's educational level and cultural background.

Now, you tell me how those words can be recited in proper English.

The teacher didn't choose her words as well and Langston Hughes, but cut her some slack. She's teaching Langston Hughes poetry to her students, and that's a good thing.

Like my sister once told me, people don't send you birthday cards to hurt your feelings. They don't teach Langston Hughes because they're racists, either.

Glad I could help. :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That's a beautiful poem of Langston's that you posted Quantum. The story of my life! :)

I understand your point. But in the Landlord poem Langston doesn't recite it with anger. But rather with a sort of weary resignation/indignation.Thus making it more poignant and sad.

I believe that what the teacher wanted to hear in the child's voice was anger. She wanted the child to recite it with anger. Maybe she's never heard the original.

She should have asked him to read it with more anger. Instead of to read it "blacker"!

Two different things, and the two do not equate. Nor should they be presented to a classroom of impressionable children as being one and the same. As if black equals angry.
