“Say it ain’t so, Joe!” 

Yes…, “say it ain’t so, Joe…, again, and again, and again, and again…

aaintblack 3

Has there been an interview or an appearance in the last few months where Sleepy, Creepy, Quid Pro Quo Joe hasn’t stuck his foot in his mouth or just couldn’t put two understandable sentences together?

aaintblack 4

Seriously…, I’m asking.

My response would have to be no.

If you can give me an example where he seemed coherent, intelligible, and presidential, please feel free to email me and make your case.

biden mask

In this latest interview, Sleepy Joe Biden stated that, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

This, of course, was said in his typical wise a$$ tone…, like the tone Quid Pro Quo Joe used in his Ukraine interview where he said, “I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired.”

Ha!  “Well, son of a bitch,” Joe!

“Son of a bitch!”

Hey…, wouldn’t you say that “bitch” is a derogatory and misogynistic term there, Creepy Joe?

Just sayin’.

I mean, since you like name calling and labeling people so much, yourself.

You better watch it or you might fall off of that high horse you ride around on.

Anyway…, getting back to the “you ain’t black” crack…

Eric Bradner, Sarah Mucha and Arlette Saenz of CNN report that, “Joe Biden said he ‘shouldn’t have been such a wise guy’ on Friday hours after he told a popular African American radio host that anyone struggling to decide whether to support him or President Donald Trump in the general election ‘ain’t black.’”

On a side note…, have you noticed it seems that no one over at CNN is capable of writing an article on their own anymore?

All of their stories seem to be authored by at least two people, and sometimes three, and sometimes even four.

Just sayin’…, again.

Bradner, Mucha and Saenz continue by saying, “The presumptive Democratic nominee’s comment came at the end of an at times tense interview with Charlamagne tha God on ‘The Breakfast Club.’”

aaintblack 2

“A staffer interjected that Biden needed to go, and Charlamagne shot back: ‘You can’t do that to black media!’”

Of course, he can, Charlamagne!

He can do whatever he wants to the black media.

He’s Joe “freakin’” Biden.

All he has to do is show up, feed you the normal liberal line of BS, and collect your monoracial block of votes.

You better get with the democrat plantation program for blacks, Charlamagne!

And you better watch it or Creepy Joe will be declaring that YOU ain’t black next!

‘“I do that to white media and black media because my wife has to go on at 6 o’clock,’ Biden said, referring to his wife Jill Biden apparently needing to use the broadcast studio they’ve built in their basement in Delaware as the coronavirus pandemic has knocked Biden off the campaign trail. Glancing at his watch, Biden said, ‘uh oh, I’m in trouble.’”

In more ways than one Creepy Joe!  In more ways than one.

“Charlamagne told Biden that he should come to the studio in New York City for another interview, telling the former vice president that ‘we’ve got more questions.’”

‘“You’ve got more questions?’ Biden replied. ‘Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.’”

aaintblack 7

“Charlamagne responded, ‘It don’t have nothing to do with Trump. It has to do with the fact, I want something for my community.’”

‘“Take a look at my record, man!’ Biden shot back.”

Ya, man!  Take a look at his pathetic record, man!

aaintblack 12

Ya man, take a look at what he and his friend Barack accomplished for the black community during the eight years they were in office.

They did zippo, nada, nothing, for the black community, except keep them well fed with their racial BS.

On the other hand, President Trump’s accomplishments have been quite substantial for the black community, including record low unemployment for black and black youth, establishing economic opportunity zones in inner-cities across the nation, his criminal justice reforms, and his commitment to strengthening black colleges.

“Later, on Friday afternoon, Biden addressed his comments in a call with the US Black Chamber of Commerce, saying, ‘I shouldn’t have been so cavalier’ and insisting he doesn’t ‘take black voters for granted.’”

That’s a lie, Creepy Joe, and we all know it.

aaintblack 5

‘“The bottom line of all of this perhaps is that I was much too cavalier. I know that the comments have come off like I was taking the African American vote for granted but nothing could be further from the truth. I’ve never, ever done that and I’ve earned it every time I’ve run,’ he said.”

No…, the “the bottom line” is you’re an old establishment democrat, and you’ve become quite adept at lying.

aaintblack 6

‘“I was making the point that I never take the vote for granted and in fact I know in order to win the presidency, I need the African American vote,’ Biden said. ‘I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy. I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.’”

It’s OK, Joe…, we understand…, we understand that stupid people tend to say stupid things.

“Biden at times during the 2020 race has quickly become testy when challenged over his record by groups the former vice president believes would fare worse under Trump.”

aaintblack 9

aaintblack 10

Can you even imagine the criticism President Trump would be facing if he had been behaving like Creepy Joe Biden has?

“Charlamagne said during an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett on Friday night that the former vice president’s comments were ‘just a shock coming from an old white man like Joe Biden.’”

For people who constantly play the race card, these libs always seem pretty predisposed to racial classifications.

Irregardless, “A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday found Biden with 81% support among black voters to Trump’s 3%.”

Like I said earlier, all Creepy Joe has to do is show up, feed the African Americans the same old liberal line of BS, and collect their monoracial votes.

“Vice President Biden has spent his career fighting alongside and for the African American community. He won his party’s nomination by earning every vote and meeting people where they are and that’s exactly what he intends to do this November,’ senior Biden adviser Symone Sanders said of the interview on Twitter.”

He may have been doing a lot of “fighting,” Symone, but he hasn’t been doing a lot of winning for the African American community.

“She added: ‘The comments made at the end of the Breakfast Club interview were in jest, but let’s be clear about what the VP was saying: he was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump’s any day. Period.”

Ohhh, Creepy Joe’s comments were all in “jest!’

Well, why didn’t you say so earlier?!

Remember what I have always said about democrats ending a statement with the word “period?”

Ending a statement with the word “period” is just an “official stamp” indicating a lie.

“Katrina Pierson, a Trump campaign senior adviser, said in a statement that Biden ‘believes black men and women are incapable of being independent or free thinking.’”

“[President] Trump in 2016 argued that black voters should reject Democrats who he argued had taken their votes for granted and back him, saying, ‘What the hell do you have to lose?’”

“Biden also defended his calls to decriminalize marijuana, rather than legalize it. He said that before legalizing it, he wants to wait and see the results of studies on ‘what it affects, doesn’t affect in long-term development of the brain. And we should wait till the studies are done.’” “I think we got decades of studies from actual weed smokers though,’ Charlamagne cut in.”

“Yeah, I do,’ Biden said. ‘I know a lot of weed smokers.’”

I kind of doubt that, Creepy Joe…, but I would tend to believe you were high at the time of this interview.

Is Marijuana beneficial in treating Alzheimer’s, dementia or loss of brain function?

Just askin”.

This is the type of hate we are up against.

According to Dom Calicchio of Fox News, “A professor at a New Jersey university is blaming President Trump and his supporters for the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, claiming it’s their fault African-Americans have been dying at a disproportionate rate.”

ablame 7

‘“F— each and every Trump supporter. You absolutely did this. You are to blame,’ were among the comments – several of them containing profanity – posted on Twitter this week by Brittney Cooper, an associate professor in the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Rutgers University.”

ablame 3

First of all…, seriously Rutgers?  This level of racism and general idiocy is allowed at your university?

Secondly…, this person is allowed to interact with and teach students at your university?

Rutgers University is obviously an unapologetic, anti-American, liberal indoctrination and promotional center…, as well as a liberal disinformation mouthpiece.

ablame 8

Like I have said in previous blogs…, it is time to start calling out these individuals and institutions for what they are.  The days of giving these people the benefit of the doubt are over.

“In another post, Cooper wrote that she and other African-Americans suspect that recent efforts to reopen the country following stay-at-home orders were ‘all about a gross necropolitical calculation that it is Black people who are dying disproportionately from COVID.’”

Excuse me Professor Cooper, but there was no “reopen order.”  Nobody is being forced out of their homes.  If anyone is uncomfortable being exposed, for any reason, no one is stopping them from staying at home and self-quarantining.

“Necropolitics” is the use of social and political power to dictate how some people may live and how some must die.

So, Professor Cooper, you can take your “necropolitics” and shove them…, unless you are referring to you and your confused democrat friends, that is.

‘“Not only do white conservatives not care about Black life,’ she wrote, ‘but my most cynical negative read of the white supremacists among them is that they welcome this mass winnowing of Black folks in order to slow demographic shifts and shore up political power.’”

ablame 6

‘“Brittney Cooper

@ProfessorCrunk

Apr 28, 2020

I feel like most Black people are clear that this utterly absurd to push to re-open the country is all about a gross necropolitical calculation that it is Black people who are dying disproportionately from COVID.’”

‘“Brittney Cooper

@ProfessorCrunk

Not only do white conservatives not care about Black life, but my most cynical negative read of the white supremacists among them is that they welcome this massive winnowing of Black folks in order to slow demographic shifts and shore up political power.

7:48 AM – Apr 28, 2020’”

All I can about your utterly ignorant comments is, I’m pretty sure that most “white” people care more about “Black lives” that you care about “white lives.”

“Last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said during an online interview that high coronavirus death rates among African-Americans were largely attributable to pre-existing health conditions that are common in the black community, such as hypertension, obesity, diabetes and asthma.”

‘“It’s really terrible, because it’s just one of the failings of our society, that African-Americans have a disproportionate prevalence in incidents of the very comorbid conditions that put you at a high risk,’ Fauci told actor Will Smith, who conducted the interview.”

I was with you, Dr. Fauci, until you bent over for Will Smith, and started blaming all of the African-American problems on the rest of society.

“In another post, Cooper claimed Trump supporters’ loyalty to the president impaired their judgment about the outbreak.”

‘“They are literally willing to die from this clusterf—ed COVID response rather than admit absolutely anybody other than him [Trump] would have been a better president,’ she wrote. ‘And when whiteness has a death wish, we are all in for a serious problem.’”

“When whiteness has a death wish?!”

I ask you…, can anyone be more ignorant and racist than this woman?

ablame 4

“Five days earlier, on April 23, Cooper wrote about ‘the depths of white depravity,’ claiming whites refused ‘to be swayed by facts, reason or the value of life itself, especially when those lives are Black.’”

“Whites refused to be swayed by facts or reason?!

Wow.

Are you going for liberal propaganda “tool” of the year, Ms. Cooper, or what?

‘“Brittney Cooper

@ProfessorCrunk

I have thought better of it and deleted that last tweet because my anger shouldnt jeopardize my loved ones. But the depths of white depravity — the adamant refusal to be swayed by facts, reason or the value of life itself, especially when those lives are Black — it staggers me.

9:20 PM – Apr 23, 2020’”

You “thought better of it?”

You “thinking better” of anything would not be a stretch by any means.

“Cooper has a history of criticizing President Trump. Last October she asserted the president’s policies were partly to blame for weight problems among African-American women. Last August she claimed Trump was willing to ‘get us into war’ to keep the economy strong to bolster his 2020 reelection hopes.”

Please refer to my blog from October 18, 2019, titled, “I’m a racist, he’s a racist, she’s a racist, we’re a racist, wouldn’t you like to be a racist too?!”

“She is the author of ‘Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower,’ which The Guardian ranked among its ‘Top 10 Books About Angry Women,’ according to Amazon.”

Books about angry women is really a category?

And, “Eloquent rage?”

You’re really giving yourself a lot of credit, Ms. Cooper.

A better title would be “Clueless Rage: A Black Feminist Tool isn’t afraid to make a fool out of herself!”

“Cultural appropriation!” Cried the cultural appropriator! 

Just as liberal African-Americans are seemingly immune from being racists, it is only the African-American culture that can be appropriated apparently.

Remember…, conservative African-Americans aren’t welcome in the liberal or “liberal Black” club though.

First, let’s see what cultural appropriation is defined as.

Cultural appropriation, at times also phrased cultural misappropriation, “is the adoption of elements of one culture by members of another culture.”

Your first impression might be, “so what?” or “that’s nice.”

I mean, haven’t we heard it said that, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?”

Well, I guess we need to add a caveat to that saying now, which would be, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, unless you’re a liberal or a liberal African-American.”

Here are some samples of liberal headlines addressing this “terrible” hijacking of the Black culture:

What is cultural appropriation and why is it offensive? – “The Week” website from the United Kingdom.

Why Cultural Appropriation Is Wrong – The “ThoughtCo” website.

Why cultural appropriation isn’t cool – reachout.com website.

… and,

A Point of View: Understanding the Harmful Impact of Cultural Appropriation – by Luiza Dreasher on the “Inclusion Solution” website who asks, “When Non-Black Minorities Adopt Black Style, Is It Still Appropriation?” …and answers, “The answer is simple: Absolutely.”

acapp 7

Bianca Lambert for the HuffPost (Huffington Post) website says, “We’ve seen a wealth of celebrities including Miley Cyrus and the Kardashians appropriating Black culture, plus countless fashion designers sending white models down their runways wearing ‘locs,’ braids and baby hairs. But what happens when we start to talk about Black appropriation among other minority communities?”

“Anyone can appropriate Black culture, including non-Black minorities, according to Keisha Brown, an associate professor of history at Tennessee State University.”

You know…, in America, Ms. Lambert and Ms. Brown, if you don’t patent something or copyright something you don’t own whatever that is and you don’t have the right to tell anyone else they can’t use it or copy it.

Just sayin’.

acapp 10

‘“So many facets of Black culture, both historically and contemporaneously, have become synonymous with mainstream American culture,’ Brown told HuffPost. ‘A related issue at hand is the separation of Black culture from the peoples and history that created it. People embrace the hip or popular elements of Black culture, but not Black Americans.’”

I guess it depends on what you consider “mainstream” American culture now doesn’t it, Ms. Brown?  And that’s a two-way street by the way.

“It’s all too common for designers to walk white models down the runway in cornrows.”

How dare they?!

If you want to start crying about “cultural appropriation…,” then let’s cry about ALL “cultural appropriation.”

acapp 11

You hardly see any Black actresses or singers with “natural” hair anymore.

acapp 19

Let’s take a look at their cultural appropriation of “white girl’s hair.”

‘“Cultural appropriation is an issue because of the history of systematic destruction and exploitation of Black culture,’ Day said [Lindsey Day, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of CRWN Magazine]. ‘America turned free people into “niggers,” and to everyone’s surprise, we created new forms of beautiful expression out of that pain. Those cultural expressions have become America’s greatest cultural exports and engines to build white wealth.’”

acapp 18

Didn’t anyone ever let you know that “life ain’t fair?”

Well, just so you know, it isn’t.

“Nicole C. Jackson, a psychotherapist who specializes in cultural and systemic oppression among emerging adults, works with many young African-American women who struggle with embracing their beauty and identity.”

‘“We often find ourselves in the role of educating everyone, from our children’s teachers, doctors and co-workers about what it means to be us,’ Jackson said. ‘While our voices are essential to the conversation, it is not our responsibility alone to educate others about their injustice and appropriation.’”

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all feel that you are the only ones who experience injustice?

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all feel that you are the only ones who experience cultural appropriation?

acapp 17

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all feel that you are the only ones worthy of any consideration?

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all are some of the ones keeping racism and culturalism alive and well in our society?

Just sayin’.

“Democrats have brainwashed Black Americans!” – Kanye West (Musician/Rapper)

You got that right, Kanye.

“Poor people have been voting democrat for 50 years…, and they’re still poor.” – Charles Barkley (Retired NBA basketball player and now basketball TV analyst)

You got that right, Charles.

Sam Dorman of Fox News reports that, “Kanye West calls out liberals for ‘bullying’ Trump supporters [and] the media’s liberal agenda.”

I applaud Kanye West for not being afraid to state the obvious and brandish the truth.

akanye 5

Are Trump supporters not being bullied in many cases?

Does the mainstream media not have a liberal agenda?

Well there you go.

“Rapper Kanye West [also] blasted Democrats on Friday, claiming the party was effectively forcing black Americans to abort their children.”

‘“Democrats had us voting for Democrats with food stamps for years, bro. … Guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children,’ he said during an interview published on Friday.”

“In the same interview, with radio host Big Boy, West said black Americans are ‘brainwashed.’ ‘We’re brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking,’ he said.”

Democrats have obviously taken Black Americans for granted for a very long time.

The unwavering 90%+ support of the democrats by Black Americans is definitely unwarranted.

Again…, like Charles Barkley said, “Poor people have been voting democrat for 50 years…, and they’re still poor.”

akanye 3

akanye 1

But the hold the democrats have had on Blacks is starting to show a few cracks here and there.

akanye 6

During the 2016 presidential election, President Trump asked Black Americans, “What do you have to lose by taking a chance on me?”

By my estimation, the only thing they have to lose is their front row seats for when their democrat masters throw their crumbs out to all of the black sheep living on their plantation!

akanye 10

“His comments echoed those of pro-life activists like Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.  In June, King blasted Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., for suggesting that abortion was a civil rights issue.”

akanye 4

akanye 9

‘“I need for her to understand that abortion is a civil wrong,’ King told ‘Fox & Friends.’ ‘And of course, if you’re pro-life, you can’t be racist because you’re defending life for the most defenseless population on the planet — the little babies in the womb,’ King said at the time.”

“The pro-life movement has long pointed out the disparity between black and white abortion rates in the U.S.”

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in 2018 that for 2015, ‘abortion rates and ratios remained 1.5 and 1.3 times higher for Hispanic compared with non-Hispanic white women and 3.6 and 3.5 times higher for non-Hispanic black compared with non-Hispanic white women.”

“At one point during the interview, West also claimed that it was racist for people to tell him he couldn’t support Trump. ‘The most racist thing a person can tell me is that I’m supposed to choose something based on my race,’ he said.”

Kanye’s absolutely right here.  It’s racist and un-American.

Why are Whites, Hispanics and Asians “allowed” to think for themselves, while Blacks are somehow expected to conform to some predetermined way of thinking or be shunned and labeled Uncle Toms and the like?

“West drew some criticism last year after he openly embraced [President] Trump and was seen sport[ing] a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat.”

akanye 2

Like Kanye said, “Come on, man. This is a free man talking.”

America is the land of the free, and we’re still allowed to believe what we want, think what we want and say what we want, even though the democrats are making their best effort to change all of that.

The thought police are out there and ready to go on active duty if, God forbid, we put the democrats in a position to let them loose.

In the Black urban culture, it’s cool to be a fool.

But the fact is, there are a lot of factors in our society that influence many different cultural behaviors.

It’s only human nature to attempt to devalue something that is perceived as a weakness to us.

If we’re not good at sports, we tend to devalue the importance of athletic accomplishments.

If we have a hard time getting good grades in school, we tend to devalue the importance of educational accomplishments.

If we have a hard time fitting into the definition of being successful in our society, then we tend to gravitate towards an oppositional stance to that culture, or a counter-culture.

adversity 12

Josie Harvey, of The HuffPost website, reports that, during an appearance on ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight,’ conservative commentator Heather Mac Donald blamed ‘Black culture’ for the academic achievement gap, and says race and gender diversity goals are blunting the nation’s ‘competitive edge.’”

adversity 1

Okay…, Black culture may be responsible for an academic achievement gap…, but what factors are responsible for this “Black culture” to begin with?

In my opinion, the root of the problem is that the Black family structure was attacked by liberal policies which began in the 1960’s, which rewarded fatherless families, thus redefining the societal role of Black males.

adversity 10

Black fathers, in this urban, socioeconomic environment, were devalued, making them unaccountable and irresponsible.

We also have to consider the downward spiral of educational adeptness as generation after generation suffered incrementally from their own lack of education.

In other words, how can these families be expected to support a student at something they have had no success at themselves?

adversity 4

adversity 11

Take a moment to consider and compare the support and expectations of the typical urban, Asian-American family to those of a typical urban, African-American family.

adversity 2

adversity 5

The cultural values here are at different ends of the spectrum…, regarding the acceptance of government dependence, family structure, the importance of education, the ability to support the children, and their visions of a desirable society and goals towards being successful.

The generalizations I refer to here, of course, do not apply to EVERY family of any race or culture…, only a majority of them.

adversity 8

“’The College Board’ (An American not-for-profit organization, representing over 6,000 leading colleges, schools, and other educational organizations, that was formed as the ‘College Entrance Examination Board’ to expand access to higher education.) announced on Tuesday that it was withdrawing plans to introduce an ‘adversity score’ on test results, a measure intended to address inequality in college admissions for those from varying socioeconomic backgrounds.”

Antonia Blumberg, also of The HuffPost website, reports that, “The College Board said Tuesday it would not move forward with a planned ‘adversity score’ intended to help level the playing field for students of diverse social and economic backgrounds who take the SAT admissions test.”

Is that really the intent of an SAT score?

What good is an SAT score that can’t stand on its own?

I mean, either you answer the questions correctly, or you don’t, right?

The College Board also stated that “The ‘Adversity Score’ reflected the ‘privilege’ of other students.”

adversity 9

I’m not sure if I would refer to the situation here as the “privilege” of others, but I suppose that’s another way of looking at it, if you’re looking at the situation from a victim’s standpoint.

And I’m not inferring any negative connotation on the term “victim” here.  In many cases, many of these students are victims of their circumstances.

“The company, which administers the admissions exam, said its attempt to address inequality in college admissions through a single score was a mistake.”

‘“The idea of a single score was wrong,’ David Coleman, College Board’s chief executive, told The Associated Press. ‘It was confusing and created the misperception that the indicators are specific to an individual student.’”

I’m not exactly sure what he is trying to say here, but I’m glad he at least acknowledged the whole concept was a bad idea.

‘“An updated [software] tool will include detailed high school and neighborhood information to admissions officers as separate data points so they can fairly evaluate each student,’ The Board said.

“In 2017, white students scored an average of 177 points [11%] higher than Black students and 128 points [8%] higher than Hispanic students, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.”

The highest possible composite score for the redesigned SAT is 1600. The average score is 1000. The “section scores” are the individual scores for the two main sections of the SAT: reading/writing and math.  Each of these sections is scored out of 800, and they are added together to get your overall score.

‘“There are a number of amazing students who may have scored less [on the SAT] but have accomplished more,’ Coleman told The Wall Street Journal in May.’”

Really, Mr. Coleman?

adversity 7

You mean we just can’t start issuing paychecks based on our SAT scores?

Thank you for that bit of insight, Mr. Coleman.adversity 3

‘“All of this tinkering with meritocratic admissions in colleges and throughout the economy, frankly, is all driven by one fact, which is the persistent academic achievement gap,’ Heather Mac Donald went on to say during an appearance on ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight.’”

‘“If Black culture or the rest of culture could close that gap, we would be back to a colorblind meritocratic system, but the College Board is trying to give colleges an excuse to continue to give preferences to under-prepared Black students, to catapult them into academic environments for which they are not prepared,’ she added.”

If we REALLY wanted a “colorblind” system, we wouldn’t ask the students what race they are when they take the test.

Just sayin’.

Discrimination…, check.  Racism…, check. African-Americans…, ch…, wait! What?!

It’s true folks. African-Americans are not immune from demonstrating a little discrimination and racism from time to time.

Really!  Believe it or not!

Here…, I’ll show you.

At some event, in Detroit, Michigan…, a group that puts on something called “AfroFuture Fest,” was actually charging one price for whites and a different [lower] price for Blacks or “people of color.”

festival 2

It’s true.

I kid you not.

This, by definition, is both discriminatory and racist.

There is no arguing that…, at least you would think so.

festival 7

Nicole Darrah of Fox News reported, “A Michigan music festival that was charging white people twice the amount for a ticket than ‘people of color’ backtracked its ticketing structure on Sunday.”

“AfroFuture Fest, scheduled to be held in Detroit in August, appeared to change their ticket prices to $20 general admission after receiving backlash for a ticketing inconsistency that offered ‘people of color’ tickets for $10, while ‘non-POC’ tickets cost $20.”

‘“I was immediately enraged just because I am biracial,’ the rapper [Tiny Jag], whose real name is Jillian Graham, told the Detroit Metro Times.  ‘I have family members that would have, under those circumstances, been subjected to something that I would not ever want them to be … especially not because of anything that I have going on.’”

festival 1

“Graham, who said her grandmother is white, said while she understands the goal of equity and equality for the black community, she called the moved ‘non-progressive’ and ‘not solution-focused.’

Oh, and you were doing so good Jillian!

But you finished up with a real bunch of liberal gobbled goop there.

I’d call it a bunch of BS, myself.

“The founder and co-director of AfroFuture Youth, the group which put the event together, told The New York Times that organizers changed the event prices after receiving harassment regarding the pricing structure.”

Ya think?!

‘“For safety, not anything else but that, the new ticket structure will be a standard set price across the board of $20,’ Adrienne Ayers said Sunday afternoon. ‘However, there will be a suggested donation for non-people of color.’”

Oh…, of course Ms. Ayers…, of course.  All of us “non-POCs” would be more than happy to donate our hard earned money just because our skin happens to be a lighter shade than yours!

festival 3

And by all means…, standardize those ticket prices for Safety’s sake!

WHAT?!

You must think we’re all as dumb as you are, Ms. Ayers!

“She said the previous ticketing plan was implemented because ‘events often designed for marginalized black and brown communities can easily be co-opted by those with cultural, monetary and class privileges.’”

Again…, WHAT?!

And charging “whitey” twice as much for a ticket would stop white people from taking over something called “AfroFest?!”

“AfroFuture explained their policy and rationale for it on their Eventbrite page. Organizers cite ‘equality’ and ‘equity’ in their ticketing, and state their structure ‘was built to insure that the most marginalized communities (people of color) are provided with an equitable chance at enjoying events in their own community (black Detroit).’”

So these People of Color are saying that only People of color can truly be poor?

Please…, tell us more about your racist rationale and racist policies!

Hey…, this is fun!  I can understand now why these guys love playing the race card so much!

‘“Affording joy and pleasure is unfortunately still a privilege in our society for POC and we believe everyone should have access to receiving such,’ organizers wrote.”

What planet are these people living on?

What country are these people living in?

I know Detroit is a pretty messed up place, but this is REALLY messed up!

‘“Ayers said that as of Sunday, the festival sold 71 tickets — including 13 that were set aside for white people.’”

Whew!  71 tickets?!

What are they going to do with all of that money?

Have these guys ever considered setting up a lemonade stand?

Just sayin’.

How far “left” is too far “left” for “the left?”

The answer to this question appears to be, “We have not yet begun to propose crazy liberal policies!”

Yes…, stay posted my friends.

It seems that every new day brings yet another wacky idea from the collection of democrat presidential candidates, regarding a new program for them to hand out our money, to buy more votes, and to grow more government, while essentially trying to destroy America, as we know her, along the way.

libs 1

Our lefty politicians don’t even really understand how far “left” they are!

I believe they actually think they represent a “typical American.”

In the places they represent (remember the small areas of blue on the voting map of America) that may be true.  There, their ideas are accepted, lauded and encouraged, while everywhere else we are left shaking our heads and wondering, “Who are these people and what country do they live in?”

libs 11

Even Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder, Robert Johnson, told CNBC that “The democratic party has “moved too far to the left” and has “become too liberal to defeat President Trump.”

Robert Johnson is the country’s first African-American billionaire, according to Forbes Business Magazine.

Hmmm.  The big liberal propaganda machine is going to have to be careful with this one, although I’m sure he’ll be labeled as an “Uncle Tom” before too long if he doesn’t come around to “the left’s” way of thinking and their narrative of choice.

Brian Flood of Fox News reported that, ‘“I think at the end of the day, if a Democrat is going to beat Trump, then that person, he or she, will have to move to the center and you can’t wait too long to do that,’ Johnson said. ‘The message of some of the programs that Democrats are pushing are not resonating with the majority of the American people.’”

The problem is that liberals don’t even consider the American people, who support President Trump, people!

libs 8

“Johnson, a long time democrat, said the current far-left state of the Democratic Party will work well in the primaries but won’t help in a general election, especially since he feels Trump has his base locked up. The BET founder, who supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, even praised some of Trump’s recent accomplishments.”

‘“I think the economy is doing great, and it’s particularly reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employments and the opportunities that come with employment,’ Johnson said. ‘African-American unemployment is at its lowest level…  I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large amount of Americans.’”

But yet, in the 2020 presidential election, 85%-90% of African-Americans will continue to vote for the democrat candidate.

libs 4

The spell the democrats have over African-Americans is a strong one, but more and more are coming to their senses and seeing things as they really are, like Mr. Johnson here.

“Johnson said he gives Trump an ‘A+’ for the economy and added that the divisive politics [of democrats] are ‘not helping America.’”

Ouch!  That really stings for our current collection of socialist democrat presidential candidates.

libs 6

But don’t worry…, this won’t phase them much.  They’ll just reload their fake reality, continue to propose fake solutions to real problems, and stupid solutions to fake problems.

WINNING!

“Reparations?!”  What you talkin’ ‘bout Willis?!

Ooops…, I mean Sheila, and Corey, and Kamala!

Adam Shaw of Fox News reported that, “The question of slavery reparations for black Americans was the subject of a fiery and emotional House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday as Democrats called for measures to address America’s ‘original sin’ — while Republicans described such payments as an ‘injustice’ and ‘almost certainly unconstitutional.’”

“The Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties subcommittee held the hearing on H.R. 40 — a bill by Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, D-Texas, to set up a commission to study and develop a response to the question of reparations for slavery.”

reps 4

‘“The role of the federal government in supporting the institution of slavery and subsequent discrimination directed against blacks is an injustice that must be formally acknowledged and addressed,’ Jackson-Lee said.”

I believe slavery, injustice and discrimination have been addressed by our government, Ms. Jackson-Lee.  I believe our government and our country has evolved quite well since the mid-1800s.

‘“I just simply ask: Why not and why not now?’ she [Jackson-Lee] said.

I would “simply” answer “Why?”

“Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., who is running for president and has introduced a version of Jackson-Lee’s bill in the Senate, said it is wrong to present the issue as one American writing a check for another, and called on lawmakers to deal with what he said is continued racism in America.”

“Citing racial disparities on issues such as health and education, he said America has a criminal justice system “that is indeed a form of new Jim Crow.”

‘“And so we as a nation have not yet truly acknowledged and grappled with racism and white supremacy that has tainted this country’s founding and continues to persist in those deep racial disparities and inequalities today,’ he said.”

reps 6

“Meanwhile, former NFL player and conservative author Burgess Owens pointed to the Democratic Party as historically responsible for injustices against black Americans, from slavery to the Ku Klux Klan to the literacy rates for black Americans in Democratic states and cities.”

‘“How about the Democratic Party pay for all the misery brought to my race, and those who after they learn our history decide to stay there … and every white American, Republican or Democrat that feels guilty because of their white skin should need to pony up also — that way we can get past this reparation and recognize that this country has given us greatness,’ he said.”

reps 1

Now there’s a proposal I could get behind!

“A Fox News poll in April found that [over] 60 percent of Americans oppose paying cash reparations to descendants of slaves, while just 32 percent support it.”

It seems that we have about 30%-35% of the people in this country who support just about any type of liberal craziness that comes down the road.

reps 3

Let’s take a moment to get real about this whole reparations deal, now.

First…, let’s be clear…, reparations for African Americans regarding slavery is not going to happen.

reps 2

And second…, all of these discussions about it are only disingenuous political theater aimed at some African-American voters who are looking to get something for nothing, disingenuous political theater aimed at creating an additional racial divide in our country, and generally a big waste of time.

reps 10

That being said…, I have a few additional comments regarding the topic of “reparations:”

  1. No one who actually was a slave is still alive.
  2. On one who actually owned a slave is still alive.
  3. Looking at “African-Americans” like Senator Corey Booker or Senator Kamala Harris, who are lighter skinned than some white people with a moderate tan, makes me wonder if they would propose payments based on what percentage any person actually was African? If you were 20% African, would you get a check for 20% of a full reparation check?
  4. If someone, who was a slave, had 100 documented descendants, would that reparations check be divided by 100 first and reduced by the percentage of African descent noted above?
  5. And who would pay for these reparations? It certainly wouldn’t be fair for people who are descendants of people from the northern states, who didn’t have any slaves, would it?
  6. And what about the descendants of people from the northern states, who fought and died in the Civil War in order to free the slaves? Shouldn’t these families get a kick-back from the people receiving reparations as well?  I mean, after all, we wouldn’t even be talking about reparations if the North hadn’t won the Civil War.

Just a few things to consider when pondering all of this craziness.

And what ever happened to The Congress dealing with our immigration problems, our country’s infrastructure, health care, and the ever increasing national debt, just to name a few important pending issues?

reps 7

I guess we know where the priorities of the democrats lie…, and if you’re not an illegal immigrant or people looking for a hand-out, you’re out of luck.

Has Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “dream” come true?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stated, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

I sincerely believe that time has arrived.

You’re always going to have exceptions to everything, but for the most part, I think Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “dream” has become reality.

I believe today, for the most part, people are judged by their actions and by what they say rather than the color of their skin.

A problem we face today, however, is that some really don’t want to be judged by their character.  They prefer to use the color of their skin as an excuse or as a ticket to special considerations and allowances.

They prefer to use the color of their skin as a wedge between people of their skin color and people of other colors, either for fame, power, money or a combination of the three.

They say, “The meaning of King’s monumental quote is more complex today than in 1963 because ‘the unconscious signals have changed,’ according to the historian Taylor Branch, author of the acclaimed trilogy “America in the King Years.”

What does that mean?

It sounds to me like the people who would prefer to use the color of their skin for their own purposes are trying to tell us that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words mean something other than what anyone who understands English understands them to mean.

It’s a form of racial “spin” or racial propaganda.

Bernice King doubts that her father would really seek to ignore differences.

“When he talked about the ‘beloved community,’ he talked about everyone bringing their gifts, their talents, their cultural experiences,” she says. “We live in a society where we may have differences, of course, but we learn to celebrate these differences.”

Yes we do celebrate cultural differences, Bernice, but excuse me if I reiterate that your father’s words, in this case, were words of inclusion and racial “blindness,” just like the “blindness” of justice.

It’s obvious that Bernice King makes her living off of her daddy’s coattails.  It’s definitely not in her best interests to acknowledge any level of racial progress.

“Unfortunately race in American history has been one area in which Americans kid themselves and pretend to be fair-minded when they really are not,” says Taylor Branch, whose new book is “The King Years: Historic Moments in the Civil Rights Movement.”

Well, I suppose we all can’t be as enlightened as you Mr. Branch.  But how do portend to know what “Americans” are supposedly kidding themselves about?  You’re obviously making quite a nice living off of your books about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Like I mentioned before, money is one of the reasons people keep preferring to drive wedges between the races.

The quote is like the Declaration of Independence, says Roger Clegg, president of the Center for Equal Opportunity, a conservative think tank that studies race and ethnicity. In years past, he says, America may have needed to grow into the words, but today they must be obeyed to the letter.

“The Declaration of Independence says all men are created equal,” says Roger Clegg, president of the Center for Equal Opportunity. “Nobody thinks it doesn’t really mean what it says…”  “King gave a brilliant and moving quotation, and I think it says we should not be treating people differently on the basis of skin color.”

Many others agree. King’s quote has become a staple of conservative belief that “judged by the color of their skin” includes things such as unique appeals to certain voter groups, reserving government contracts for Hispanic-owned businesses, seeking more non-white corporate executives, or admitting black students to college with lower test scores.

In the latest issue of the Weekly Standard magazine, the quote appears in the lead of a book review titled “The Price Was High: Affirmative Action and the Betrayal of a Colorblind Society.”

“Considering race as a factor in affirmative action keeps the wounds of slavery and Jim Crow ‘sore and festering.’ It encourages beneficiaries to rely on ethnicity rather than self-improvement to get ahead,” wrote the author, George Leef.

The RightWingNews.com blog added, “The idea that everyone should be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin” in their list of “25 People, Places and Things Liberals Love to Hate.”

“Conservatives feel they have embraced that quote completely. They are the embodiment of that quote but get no credit for doing it,” says the author of the article, John Hawkins. “Liberals like the idea of the quote because it’s the most famous thing Martin Luther King said, but they left the principles behind the quote behind a long time ago.”
