CAPTION SATURDAY




Please give me a caption for this pic.


You all have been great with these.


Maybe at the end of the year I will give away some Field Negro gear to the best captions. (Maybe)


Finally, I want to give a big thank you out to venerable Philly journalist, Elmer Smith, and the folks of the Burlington Tabernacle Baptist Church for hosting a wonderful event yesterday. (Shout out to Ms. Dawn for that serious lunch.)


I was honored to be on a panel with some great writers, journalists, and giants of media in the Philadelphia area.  Jasmine Alexander; Richard Aregood; Art Fennell; Annette John-Hall; Karen Turner; and my good friend, Solomon Jones. These folks all helped to make it a day worth remembering.


I have to also give a special shout out to Stephen Smith of ESPN, who also made it a point to be there even though the LeBron James story was breaking at the exact time that the program was going on.


The kids who were there, and the up and coming bloggers, were wonderful and engaged, and I was humbled by their eagerness to learn and to listen to the knowledge that I --and others present-- was fortunate enough to be in a position to share with them.


The future looks bright

So what do black people, who think Obama is not doing enough for blacks, think he should be doing (for blacks)?

I happen to come across this site when I looked to see who leaving cookies in my computer, and read the name of a cooky I thought was racist by the name given.

After reading several articles I discovered I was completely wrong on my first impression. In fact, after I read the comments I thought this was one of the most common sense blogs I've read in a longtime.

As an older white male, I'm disgusted by what I'm reading from Republicans, and particularly from members of the Tea Party. Ever since Obama got elected it seems the type of racism we saw in the 50"s and 60's has suddenly come alive. I would have never guessed we still that many people in our country who are racist.

Getting out to vote has got to become a major cause in the black communities if you want to be heard and be a factor in legislation.

I live in Florida and I have been amazed what our governor and the Republican legislature has done to make it harder for blacks to vote. It's very obvious they are targeting black voters, but I've heard very little from the black leaders.

I hope this blog continues to be successful, and and also hope that it grows so more people will be able to read.

"That's 'another' reason why I, as President, can't help Blacks. There simply isn't any money.

Look....you know the old saying, "You can please 'some' of the people all the time, but you can't please 'all' of the people all the time. That's my job as President...you can't win them all. And if I were to lose a group, I'd rather it be a group with 'no' power who I can take for granted. It's smart politics."

Thank you. It's good to know there ARE people in America like yourself who want to end racism. However, I wonder how many Whites like yourself exist in America?


"I live in Florida and I have been amazed what our governor and the Republican legislature has done to make it harder for blacks to vote. It's very obvious they are targeting black voters, but I've heard very little from the black leaders."

I agree that black leaders are not vocal. I sometimes wonder if there are any black leaders at all. I also wonder why I don't hear from Whites who see that the GOP is clearly targeting Blacks.

I don't know what the answer is but I know Blacks can't do this by themselves. They truly need white support, which seems to be non-existent...much like black leadership seems to be nonexistent.

Dear Mr 'good' WM, I am sorry you are being attacked by some Republicans on this site. I keep telling Field he needs to throw the assholes off, but he lets them be.

This is a clear case of a LACK of BLACK LEADERSHIP...It's weak and pitiful.

Let's face it. The Republicans run this blog much like they run the country. It doesn't matter if they are in the majority or the minority. They have the same power. In fact, they are more powerful when they are in the minority...go figure.

You could always just write a post instead of making the trolls do your work for free for you. :)

I have noticed you are writing less and less from years past when I google your contradictions and double standards.
Like your double standard yesterday about making fun of fat people. Claiming it's okay to make fun of someone that is a public figure is legal justification, not a moral one.

Isn't making fun of christie's weight some of that attack stuff that bothers you when right-wingers do it?
How did making fun of christie's weight contribute constructively to the political discourse?

Do as you say, not as you do.

If you had a right-wing site you would learn all left-wingnuts do is attack attack attack and make fun of people's weight.

Your left-wing bias doesn't allow you to see the whole picture.

Anyhoo he seemed surprised when he got a call from my lawyer, my sister who is a pretty good one for the record, and actually put down the phone and asked why my lawyer was calling. Ha! i'm sitting in the station in cuffs getting my mug shot taken and you want to know why my lawyer was calling? "

The neighborhood is officially known as Chicago Lawn. Marquette Park itself is right in the middle of the place, hence the nickname. It's hardly White, but it is well over 50% Black and shows it. Coming up from Indie you take 65 to 90 where you pass up another Mecca of Black civilization called Gary. BTW the Gary airport is just off the highway.

QLB, if you were speaking as much truth and facts as you think you are, I might agree with you, but you're not.

Who are you hurting on this blog? Please do tell.

No one on here commits drive-bys, robberies, murders, did not graduate, or commits any of the other social ills you talk about, which by the way are committed in all poorer neighborhoods by every single race of people, and not just African Americans. Nor does anyone on here affiliate with those type of people.

Now, if those are the type of people that you wish to reach, maybe, you try blogging in one of those AOL chat rooms. You're on the wrong blog. Being that you consider yourself so brilliant, you should have figured that out years ago.

One word of advice to you QBL, you should be careful who you step on. You never know who you may need on your way down. Yes, it can happen to you as well as any other living creature on this planet. Up one day feeling high and mighty, but pride always comes before a fall though, that's a fact of life and some real truth.

Update on elderly woman beaten by CHP.

She is still in hospital, but not under mandatory mental evaluation. The reason she is still in the hospital is due to treatment for head injuries and emotional trauma.

The CHP officer is on desk duty. Smh!

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

"It should be noted that McDade’s parents hired attorney Caree Harper, who sued the city of Pasadena for McDade’s death and received more than $1 million dollars for the killing of their son."

"Harper has also been retained by Pinnock’s family. She told this reporter it took her 30 hours to find Pinnock, a Jefferson High School graduate who is the mother of two and grandmother of two, because the CHP had the beaten woman admitted into a hospital under three different aliases and then transferred her to another hospital."

“They wouldn’t even tell me her name,” Harper said. “When I finally found her, I saw that she was not being treated. She was bruised and battered and the hospital personnel weren’t doing anything to or for her. My first duty was to try to get her treated.”

“I had to get her x-rayed because to look at her one would think she would have been better off if she had been hit by a car!” Harper said. “They put her in some kind of mental health facility in South L.A., but the way that man savagely beat her, he’s the one who should be in a mental health facility. I’m going to sue the state of California for this.”

@Depressednegro,

Read the link to that article, it'll tell you who all is stepping up to the plate.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

The beating took place Tuesday along the Santa Monica freeway and was caught on tape by passing motorist David Diaz.
"This is not just jabs, they are hooks," he said. "Those are lights-out punches. Those aren't like taps.
"You see it, you heard it. It was like 'thump, thump, thump' and then you see her head bouncing 'bam, bam' on the concrete. Then you hear her screaming, 'No, don't, stop.' Then you even -- at the end where she has her hands up like this -- when it's clear there is no more resistance, he takes another four or five shots."
"The woman who was beaten is Marlene Pinnock, a great-grandmother.
Caree Harper, the lawyer who is now representing her, says Pinnock's injuries are severe.
"Her family went to visit her," Harper said. "She has multiple lumps in her head, lumps on her shoulder like the size of a plum, bruises and lumps all over her upper body."

Believe it or not, African Americans' bodies are made of the same fiber, bones, blood cells, organs, muscle, skin, and other parts that whites, Hispanics, Asians, and other ethnic groups' bodies are made of and can feel hurt and pain too. That elderly lady is not a trained boxer or martial arts expert that's conditioned to take punches to the face.

After reading the article stating her injuries, I doubt very seriously if she is used to someone punching her in her face or head.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Btw, the media only wrote what the lawyer said. I watched and listened to her lawyer during the interview and these were the lawyer's exact words.

"Pinnock's injuries are severe.
She has multiple lumps in her head, lumps on her shoulder like the size of a plum, bruises and lumps all over her upper body."

That CHP probably has beat others like he did her, but has gotten away with it because he was too comfortable with beating that elderly woman in broad daylight in front of people passing by in their cars.

It's great a difference in punching someone in the head and face than it is in trying to subdue to detain someone.

There is no excuse or justification for what he did and he should be on leave WITHOUT PAY. He should be fired!

I dunno though. Those who are paid to protect and serve the people have become scandalous, brute beast, corrupt, dishonest, and demented.

Come on Granny. Everybody knows there is a big difference in Black and White bodies, esp bw and ww. You can look at their legs and thighs and calves. There is definitely a major difference.

Shall we talk about butts? There is a huge difference.

In terms of body size, bw on the average are twice as big. Compared to their male counterpart, they weigh more and are bigger.

Either you don't know that many ww or the only ones you know are family or the only ones you know are suffering from anorexia. I've seen some huge ww before that are so huge they wobble when they walk and not just one or two either. Some of them make one of those Japanese wrestlers look like mighty mouse. I've seen a bunch of them. Evidently, like Field said you've never seen any of those ww in the South. The majority of them are fat, especially in the rural areas. Walmart in the south specializes in big women's sizes just for them, if ww didn't need big women sizes, they wouldn't make them.

Butts, well, here lately I've noticed some ww have went to extremes to have a butt with butt implants along with breast implants. Although, I will say that bw have the butt department covered.

Exactly, why would a racist find data to not support their hypothesis? Just like they would design an IQ test that would favor themselves. Chris Rock proved this when he questioned rural white folks about Black culture, they didn't know shit so if we designed a test based on Black culture whites would do poorly.
