I don't care if you are the president of these divided states or just a hard working young black man, it's hard out here having to deal with the dreaded extreme color arousal syndrome.
"A 19-year-old college student from Queens says he was handcuffed and locked in a jail cell after buying a $350 designer belt at Barneys on New York's Madison Avenue because he is "a young black man."
Trayon Christian told NBC 4 New York on Wednesday that he saved up from a part-time job for weeks to buy a Salvatore Ferragamo belt at Barneys.
When he went to the store to buy it in April, he says the checkout clerk asked to see his identification. After the sale went through and he left the store, he was approached by police about a block away, and asked "how a young black man such as himself could afford to purchase such an expensive belt," according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Officers hauled Christian to the local precinct, where he showed police his identification, as well as his debit card and the receipt for the belt, the lawsuit says.
Police still believed Christian's identification was fake, and eventually called his bank, which verified it was his, according to the complaint. Christian, who has no prior arrests, was released.
He told NBC 4 New York that questions were racing through his mind while he went through the painful experience of being handcuffed and taken to a cell.
"Why me? I guess because I'm a young black man, and you know, people do a credit card scam so they probably thought that I was one of them," Christian said. "They probably think that black people don't have money like that."
He later returned the belt to Barneys because he says he "didn't want to have nothing to do with it."
He is suing the city and the luxury department store for unspecified damages as a result of "great physical and mental distress and humiliation." [Source]
Young man, I hope you win your lawsuit and get enough money to buy a thousand Ferragamo suits.
Finally, the right is upset with democratic congressman, Alan Grayson, who declared in no uncertain terms that the tea party and the KKK was pretty much the same thing. ("If the hood fits")
Over on Fox they are calling it race baiting. Pot meet kettle. Sean Hannity was beside himself with rage. He brought in one of his house Negro friends, Niger Innis (yes, that's his name) to cheer on his hypocritical rant.
Niger must have forgotten about Sean's friend, Hal Turner. But this is what house Negroes do, they go along to get along.
Anyway, I love this commentary from someone named Michelle (Obama) Gardner.
"I wonder if Hannity will ever invite his new colleague Ben Carson onto his show to discuss his long history of race baiting. So, its all fine and dandy when Carson (and the entire GOP for that matter) refer to Blacks Liberals as "slaves" and the Democratic Party as a "plantation" and Obamacare as the worst thing since slavery. Meanwhile, they're indignant at heated racial rhetoric coming from the left? Isn't referring to African Americans as slaves the height of racial insensitivity given the history????
Yet Republicans do it all the time, especially Black Republicans.
They lash out all the time at the Black community for rejecting them. So, rather than responding to that rejection like mature adults they whip out the slave references and hide behind their skin color to justify such irresponsible rhetoric. They then go on Conservative media and embarrass themselves further by repeating such nonsense amongst people who frankly already have misconceptions about the Black community. They get patted on the head for being "courageous" , "telling it like it is", "thinking for themselves", "not being PC", but primarily for saying what White conservatives think, but could never ever say.
What's more is that this type of thing doesn't happen with other groups. Think about it. Most Jews in this country are Democrats. Yet, Republicans wouldn't dare refer to Liberal Jews as having a "concentration camp" mentality or the Democratic Party as being a "concentration camp". Most importantly you couldn't pay a self-respecting, Conservative minded, Jewish person enough money to stand in front of CPAC, or Values Voters Summit, or a Christian Coalition Conference, or Faux Newz and say some crazy shyt like that!!!!
I have to wonder myself why black conservatives are always so angry."
I know why, they want a bigger house.
