Now the NAACP calls for firing the of N.Y. Post cartoonist.. The NAACP is showing its irrelevance.. Currently the state of Black AmeriKKKa is not in good shape and Obama "making it" has not miraculously healed those problems. AIDS (sex education), Education, Housing Crash, INcarceration & Homicide should be on the top of the list. Ironically this has plagued Black America for a long time and I have not heard a squeak from anyone. I have an idea lets fire those pimps in priestly garb and start our own form of marshal law in the community. I bet every dime that if Bush was in the White House everyone would agree that the 'toon hit the mark.. I guess using the word 'toon is taboo as well..
I have a brilliant idea, lets ask OBAMA what he thinks....

Lately there has been buzz/frustration surrounding a cartoon that the New York Post published. I guess my racist meter is broken because it does not come across as being intentially racist. Which goes back to the press handling Obama with kid gloves and few comedians are willing to take a poke at the new president in fear of "black lash"
Which leads me to the GREAT Attorney General Eric Holder... I am serious about the GREAT and in his first big speech when he declared "Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards,"
I believe the majority of people is scared of having a honest discussion about race relation.
Especially my Black family because there are troubles that can be traced to race problems and I do not mean blaming White Folk for our troubles....
If you believe me wrong oh well..

The other day I heard a young woman of African heritage proclaim in a loud voice that she is not African/Afro american... She stated that she is an American and decided to add the biggest confusion that she should be referred to as Irish American since here other ancestors came from Ireland... She was serious. I must be honest and state that I do not see myself as an american, be it Afro, African or what ever the powers may be want to label. I am a person behind enemy lines.... Obama's election may not add up to much as long as parenting skills remain low among some people as I saw today when a mother told her child to act right or she will beat here ass.... The child is three and the mother added some more explenitives. This is not an isolated incident.
I avoid labels as much as possible and do not embrace the devil (whatever costume or color)
Black month or ancestor month is not a time of marching and singing.. We need to revolt and take back our schools and universities and proclaim "I AM"
