Philly today, and he was telling the workers that if the republicans in Washington don't come around to seeing things his way we could be heading for a long fall over a very steep cliff.
Mitch McConnell was laughing at Obama's offer, but most of us do not think that there is anything funny about this standoff. Just thirty two days to go before we might have to march on Washington and "throw the bums out".
And finally, we have this:
"In something straight from the “this-is-too-foolish-to-be-offensive files,” we take a look at two college girls who had quite the time during a recent homemade spa treatment.
University of Minnesota Duluth students Rachel Cooper and Jessica Heid (both pictured) decided the dark facial masks they’d put on made them instantly Black.
So they posted a YouTube video calling themselves “true negroes” who “come from the Black hood.” A few seconds before that, though, they chose to wax poetic about their newfound “ghetto” roots.
Yo, what up homie!” one of the girls say. “I’m from the 421!” Not to be outdone, her friend quickly adds, “I’m from the 612, b*tch. N*gga, I beez [sic] from Brooklyn, New York!”
Other golden nuggets of true, authentic Blackness include: 1. “We need some “f*ckin fried chicken. I need some fried f*ckin chicken.” 2. “Girl, you know mama’s makin’ some fried chicken tonight!” and 3.”We got some f*ckin backup n*ggas for us, you n*ggas!”
Oddly enough, when asked about the clip, both girls seemingly rejected their “Black” debut, “We were doing facials and it happened to have been a brown facial mask,” Rachel Cooper told a reporter, according to The Root. We had to leave it on for 12 minutes. During that 12 minutes, we horribly decided to make a video that we regret and are not happy about.” [Source]
*Yawn*. Frankly, this has become so commonplace that I don't even know why I am posting about it.
Apparently we are still a long way to go before we get over ignorant stereotypes in America. Is what two young clueless girls from Minnesota post on You Tube *symptomatic of a larger problem here in America? That was a rhetorical question. of course it is.
But hey, they are "not happy about it". That should count for something.
