Sometimes I get so pissed off at my people that I am scared to even post about it. I honestly couldn't believe my eyes when I read today that the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) agreed to partner with the FAKE NEWS NETWORK to sponsor some upcoming presidential debates . Ever since finding out about this travesty, I have been trying to figure out why the Congressional Black Coons would do such a thing. I mean, have they not heard the pleas and the outcry from thousands of their constituents not to partner with FOX? I know I rip Jessie Jackson from time to time, but I have to give him credit for speaking out against this "partnership" as well. I just wish more of these CBC members would grow some and come out against this partnership with the FAKE NEWS NETWORK.

Folks, we are talking about a group of people that consistently marginalized black people, and use us to play on the fears of their red state watchers to increase viewership. The "fair and balanced" people have not been so fair or so balanced when it comes to black folks. They are the ones that called a mainstream African American church separatist. They are the ones who consistently ignore important stories about black folks and give us fluff pieces about the rotting body of a no talented pin up girl. They are the ones who called black people racist on the occasion of the funeral of the wife of our greatest civil rights icon. And these ignorant ass politicians are co-sponsoring a debate with these mother f*****s. Do they even know who they are dealing with in Rupert Murdoch? Talk about making a deal with the devil. But I swear some of us will do anything for the almighty dollar. At some point we as black folks have to ask ourselves why we even vote for these jokers. The leaders of these clowns, Bennie Thompson, (D-Miss), and Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D- Md) even tried to justify this bull sh**. {"The CBC Institute is committed to presenting the presidential candidates to the broadest audience possible"} All the while ignoring the organized efforts of black folks and thousands of signatures and phone calls to their sorry ass organization.

I have been down to D.C. on occasion for the CBC weekend. And my friends, if you want to see cooning in full force, you might want to take a trip down there to see these clowns in person. They are a joke, and they could care less about the people they serve. Most of them are looking out for themselves while trying to line their grubby pockets. (Insert your Dollar Bill Jefferson reference here) They could really care less about black folks or our issues out here. Their focus is getting reelected every two years, and holding on to their power.

I am begging every black (or white) person that voted for these clowns to vote for their opponent in their next quest to go back to Washington. I don't care of they are running against the Geico f*****g cave man, do not vote for those mother f*****s; they are fowl, and they are tainted by greed and money.

"Collaborating with FOX NEWS provides an opportunity to take this presidential election to millions of households". And exactly how many of those households do you think will vote for a democrat? So way to go CBC, you have embarrassed your selves, your constituents, and your f*****g race. How you live with yourselves I just don't know, but I guess at this stage in your careers, you lost the ability to feel shame a long time ago.

But you know what; I feel shame for you, and I am embarrassed that you house Negroes even look like me, or share my heritage. FOX NEWS??? Still, I am not going to trip, I just won't forget, and I hope every other black person that voted for your sorry asses won't forget either.
Shoot an email to the CBC press secretary
or call 800-928-6178. Bennie Thompson's number is: 202-225-5876, and Ms.Kirkpatrick's number is: 202-225-2261.
Oh, before I forget, I was posting over at my man free slave's site, and we were throwing around the idea of organizing a progressive black net roots movement. (long overdue if you ask me) This is very very early in the process, but I am excited at the possibilities ahead of us. If you have any ideas please shoot me an email

Always follow the money.

It's a damn shame that they are whores for SO LITTLE.

It's all about the money. Period.

thanks for the house negro of the day
tip ...
i didn't know who that fool was in the mc rove video

how does this guy sleep at night?

The CBC partnering with FNN is disheartening but unsurprising. I do wish someone could explain to me how this truly heightens the CBC's profile.

Fox Cable News is not permitted to broadcast in Canada much to the chagrin of our own right-wing contingent. We can sample local Fox news casts (here it's out of Rochester,NY), but when it comes to the FAKE NEWS NETWORK? well, I think that handle somes up nicely why it does not receive recognition by the CRTC (Canadian Radio-Television Commission).

Mmmm following the money, and it leads right to Dollar Bill's refrigerator :)

Lord omar,your post makes me want to stand up and sing a bar or two of "Oh Canada".

I was thinking the same thing about Progressive Bloggers.

I was going to raise this issue a couple of weeks ago.

I was thinking a Black Bloggers Association or something of the sort.

Are you sure the CBC isn't just a bunch of white people in blackface?

field negro said...

A.I., e-mail me and I will link you up with ASA, and Julian (Free Slave) those brothers are already trying to make things happen.
I think you would fit right it.

LOL at woozie! But damn it you might be right :)

"By Howard Witt
Tribune senior correspondent
Published March 31, 2007

HOUSTON -- Shaquanda Cotton, the black teenager in the small east Texas town of Paris whose prison sentence of up to 7 years for shoving a teacher's aide sparked nationwide controversy, will be released Saturday morning, prison officials confirmed on Friday.

Her release, ordered by a special conservator appointed to overhaul the state's scandal-ridden juvenile prison system, is the first of what could be hundreds as a panel of civil rights leaders begins reviewing the sentences of every youth incarcerated by the Texas Youth Commission to weed out those being held arbitrarily.",1,4935841.story?coll=chi-news-hed&ctrack=3&cset=true

Witt has said in his reporting and in interviews on NPR that the release of Shaquanda Cotton highlights the immense new power of Blacks communicating and advocating through the Blackosphere.

Francis Holland said...

The advocacy around Shaquanda Cotton has shown what Black bloggers can do when aroused to work together toward a common goal. I'm all for Blackosphere.Org or whatever!

The Shaquanda advocacy has also shown that Black reporters in the traditional media, like Howard Witt (Chicago Tribune), can have effective relationships with Black bloggers, wherein they print compelling stories about important issues, we boost those stories and give them exponentially magnified visibility, and that makes pressure for change.

And it should work the other way around, too. We print stories which they pick up and take to a national mainstream media audience.

hey fox news is a one sided tool of the Bush administration. I know this you know this, but Politics is a game even the good ones have to play. If you want to get things done you have to play. I am not saying that it is right. Just don't think that they honestly don't see your side or have any balls.

Field Negro:

You would do well to host "House Negro of the Year" until Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick steps down as CBC Chair.

I wish Barbara Lee had pushed for the position - there's no way in hell that Fox Noise would have been able to come calling.

Rikyrah said "Follow the money", and that trail leads to those in the CBC who want to get that cushy golden parachute that Harold Ford got when he lost his Senate race.

Even though most of the CBC members couldn't stand his ass, it doesn't stop them from wanting to get fat johns like he got to set them up for life after Congress.

Until someone shows me a detailed action plan produced by the Congressional Black Caucus to

1. end the war in Iraq
2. rebuild New Orleans

they will always be full of shit in my book.

Speaking of grandstanding, did anyone catch the chief grandstanding pimp in charge of rhetoric, Al Sharpton, commenting on CNN yesterday on Obama and discussing his thoughts about entering the presidential race? I missed it.

I hate to seem like the stupid one in the crowd, but maybe I'm misunderstanding the point over this whole CBC/FOX issue.

As I understand it, the problem is that Fox News doesn't like Black people. But from where I am sitting it seems to me that they dislike us only a little more openly than the rest of the media. I mean really, can you name one major media outlet where you can find fair and balanced coverage of Black people and Black issues? That being the case, what's the problem with the CBC going with what is presumably the most financially lucrative arrangement they can find? Fox and everybody else is going to continue to dog Black folks regardless. At least if it's on FOX people who don't have cable might be included in the viewing audience.

Now don't get me wrong, I don't have much respect for any career political whores, who sell their influence to the highest bidder and your votes down the river. I include most of the CBC in this category. I just don't quite get what the uproar on this issue is designed to accomplish. I humbly request your enlightenment.
