Mr Selfie has a problem with hip-hop, and a donut shop's not so sweet promo.

Remember when Geraldo Rivera was at least a little bit relevant and what he said actually made sense at least fifty percent of the time?

Well, that was then, this is now.

"Fresh off coming in second on Celebrity Apprentice, Geraldo Rivera stopped by HuffPost Live today for a chat. But they did dive into politics as Rivera said he believes that “hip-hop has done more damage to black and brown people than racism in the last ten years.”

And it’s not just hip-hop, it’s fashion, because he challenged people to find “a Puerto Rican from the South Bronx or a black kid from Harlem who has succeeded in life… walking around with his pants around his ass and with visible tattoos.”

Rivera cited Russell Simmons as someone he likes, but someone who should also acknowledge that by encouraging this culture, he and others” have encouraged people to be so different from the mainstream that they can’t participate other than, you know, the racks in the garment center and those entry-level jobs.”

My goodness! Where should I begin?

Well, first of all, most of the people who listen to (and buy) hip- hop, are young suburban white males. So I am not even sure where  this clueless loof (that's a backwards fool) gets his facts.

First, Karl Malone, who fathered three children out of wedlock and abandoned his son (who calls him a "sperm donor") and left him to raise himself while he made millions in the NBA, has the unmitigated gall to lecture black folks about personal responsibility. And now this guy, who has had four failed marriages, took a nude and disgusting selfie of himself for the world to see, and lied to the country for ratings about Al Capone's vault has the nerve to lecture folks who love hip hop and blame the genre for problems among black youths.

Welcome to the no shame culture. Where Sarah Palin (yes, Sarah Palin) can look at a bunch of people and tell them to "get a job". Sarah Palin. A woman who hasn't worked since the day that John McCain chose her as his running mate.

She has the nerve to tell a bunch of hecklers having fun with her that they should be working.

If only everyone could get a job being Sarah Palin.

Finally, did you hear what happened to the Krispy Kreme donuts, people?

"Purveyor of sugary-sweet doughnuts Krispy Kreme is in hot water over its use of a not-so-innocent acronym. According to the Guardian, a UK branch of the chain had to delete promotional material for its Krispy Kreme Klub Wednesdays. The outlet posted a (now deleted) advertisement for the event on its Facebook page, listing it as "KKK Wednesdays," which mistakenly references the Ku Klux Klan.

The event was meant to part of the company's planned activities for school children on a week-long break. Unsurprisingly, the listing caused much uproar and the chain removed the post promptly earlier today. A spokesperson tells the Guardian, "Krispy Kreme apologizes unreservedly for the inappropriate name of a customer promotion at one of our stores," adding that the "promotion was never intended to cause offense." The Hull Daily Mail quotes another spokesperson as saying, "KKK Wednesdays would go ahead, but under a different name."
Perhaps the doughnut chain was unconsciously influenced by an intentional, bizarre KKK promotion: In July, residents of a neighborhood in South Carolina reported finding bags of candy on their streets that contained fliers asking them to join the KKK. In that case, handing out doughnuts seems like a serious upgrade?" [Source] 

No truth to the rumor that they were doing it to attract certain types of police officers to their stores.

She has enough money to sink your ass in the Atlantic.

Goober. Go suck on Alicia Skanks

That SOB owes me two hours of my life back after watching that Al Capone's vault bull.

Sarah Palin should thank her lucky stars there are so many fox news watching goofballs that would pay to hear her batshit spewing. John McCain needs to apologize to the world for unleashing that bimbo on us.

The Purple Cow said...

"Only a small percentage endorse the tactics of ISIS, but a majority embraces the goals of ISIS: A universal caliphate of Islam.

At the very least, there are hundreds of millions of people who tacitly support what ISIS is doing."


Nonsense.

Daesh believe that al-sā'ah is almost upon us. The reason they don't have a long term strategy for anything is that they don't believe there is a long term.

They believe that a great battle will take place in Northern Syria against 'The Armies of Rome' which will lead to the destruction of their Caliphate. When just 5000 Muslims remain, Jesus Christ himself will return to Earth to slay Islam's enemies. This is why they were so excited to capture Kobani, because this is precisely the area that the Hadith's predict the battle will take place.

Oddly you might think, many Daesh scholars interpret 'Armies of Rome' to mean Turkey, so it could be that an attack on Turkey is next on their hit-list. This might be because Rome's Western Armies were stationed in what is now Turkey, I'm not quite sure. Either way, a leading Australian Islamic scholar expects Dash to sack Istanbul in the next couple of years.

So Daesh don't see the Caliphate as the end game in of itself, it is simply a small step on the road that will lead to the end of days. That road needs to take in the deaths of all but 5000 of the world's Muslims. To that end all of the World's Shi'ites need to die, as does 99.99% of Sunnis. Even those who adhere to the Daesh philosophy are required to execute as many Muslims as possible for any minor transgression of religious beliefs. Failing to execute enough people is in of itself a reason to get yourself executed.

Yep, Geraldo Rivera has the solution to all of the black community's problems with his new Negro Improvement project. He plans to come round to the black neighborhoods in every major city, where he'll snatch all the hoodies and hand out belts. Voila! Poverty: solved. Crime problem: gone.

This is why they pay Geraldo the big bucks on Fox. He's an idea guy.

Fox should probably also hire this fellow -- he and Geraldo would get on famously:

As for the Krispy Kream people, I've heard they're about to roll out their slick new swastika logo. The marketing department feels this symbol has a bold, vibrant energy that will really set their donuts apart from the competition.

I think Geraldo Rivera is one of the most honest pundits on TV. I don't agree him, but he believes what he says. Most of them will say whatever their networks want them to say.

The Purple Cow said...

"-- which, by the way, has white people living in so much fucking fear that in England they allowed a Pakistani child rape gang to rape over 1,000 children solely because they didn't want to be thought of as racists by arresting Pakistanis!"

Sweet Jezus - Josh who claims that he's not a conservative and not a racist seems to be getting his news stories from racist conservative hate sites.

Strange huh?

Once again Purple Cow is compelled to excuse evil done by brown people, this time child rapists, because his ideology tells him that white racism can be the only true evil.

Go figure.

Geraldo's Balls said...

“hip-hop has done more damage to black and brown people than racism in the last ten years.”

That is technically true, as it would be for almost anything, since racism has done no harm to black and brown people in the last ten years.

"Racism" pays the rent, feeds the kids, and keep y'all in fresh kicks.

and lied to the country for ratings about Al Capone's vault


Obama intentionally lied to America about Obamacare saving the typical family $2,500.

What about Obama intentionally lying about being against gay marriage to pander to the black community?

And you're obsessing over a lie from 1986 for teev ratings.


There must be a food reason you keep ignoring lies from the dumbocrat president.

“But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s a lack of opportunity for jobs.”

Of course there is a dumbocrat double standard...

Imagine a right-wingnut government spokesman insisting the KKK was about a lack of opportunity for jobs.

Vice President Biden acts like the creepy uncle again.

Joe Biden Gets A Bit Too Close To New Secretary Of Defense's Wife
...
For a few seconds, Biden put both hands on Carter's wife. It was reminiscent of what President George W. Bush did to German Chancellor Angela Merkel. But Biden, then took it a step further, getting really close to whisper something in her ear.

Gotta love how NPR was forced to defend Biden by comparing him to bush.

"Imagine a right-wingnut government spokesman insisting the KKK was about a lack of opportunity for jobs."

Well, probably not back at its inception, when the vast majority of white Southerners were racist, but today -- yeah, sure, unemployment could contribute to people joining the KKK.

Most white folks today who join white supremacist organizations are angry, broke, ignorant meatheads. Reduce the number of angry, broke, ignorant white meatheads, and you impair the recruiting of those organizations.

This is what that state department woman meant about unemployment and ISIS. She didn't say that ISIS was "about" unemployment. But living in bad circumstances is a motive for why people join extremist organizations: they are looking for an explanation for why their lives are so terrible, and extremist organizations supply that explanation in the form of a convenient scapegoat they can blame.

BTW, did anyone else see the movie The Book of Negroes? How fascinating to (re)learn what a bastard George Washington was.

Goodness gracious did Geraldo think that he actually looked sexy or something? Ahahaha! Well he may have looked 'or something' but def not sexy! :D

Gerald let's get old with dignity okay? Naked selfies after the age of 40, okay maybe 50 if you're in good shape, are a no-no, unless it's if you're hooked up with EKG leads for a medical telemetry consult from an ambulance! Ahaahahaa! (Meany me)

I wonder if he would enjoy seeing photos of 70's women on line? Somehow I think not! :)Machista!

He was going through his male old age crisis!





lilacpr2000 said...

It makes me wonder what kind of bozos are doing the advertising/pr for these companies? I mean really..

I don't like those donuts, all you can taste is the sugar.

People if you want to eat crullers to die for, go find yourselves a 'Bunuelos de Viento' or Bunuelos de Aire recipe, and make it. Very simple and totally,insanely delish!

He's a small man alright, a classic case of 'Little Man Syndrome'. Short, fat, wimp with goatee beard and a fading baseball cap. His Momma is the only person who calls him by his real name.

Those allegedly macho right wing types are ten-a-penny, I used to call them the '101st Fighting Keyboarders', they talk a tough-guy game but in reality their macho rhetoric is compensation for their impotence.
