Fanz23 - What's The Damn Difference?!

This morning as a set out to get my fade hooked up, I stopped at a 7-11 to get a small cup of coffee, when bam! there it was, right above Tiger Woods' press conference. UCSD black students up in arms over a white fraternity's video prank depicting blacks in the usual stereotype.


So after meetings with so called black leaders and hearing input from black San Diego City Council members, what does the school do? it pulls the fraternity's charter and then comes the usual, we are going to give money to fill in the blank black program..

That's the cost of portraying blacks in their usual stereotype. So can anyone tell me the difference when I'm over a friends house and his brother has two installments of a video called "Ghetto Brawls I and II." The video shows a bunch of blacks through out the country in every urban neighborhood or projects, fightin'. girls fighting and pulling each other's hair and ripping each other's top off. One girl in the video was involved in a fight after saying she was pregnant and didn't want to fight and here's the topper! after saying she was pregnant and receiving two round house rights from her opponent. The girl again says she is pregnant AND she had been drinking! All of this with a huge crowd of black oooing and awwing to this.

Yet a group of white fraternity boys is dead ass wrong for portraying blacks in a so called stereotypical state.

What's the damn difference?! Except that it's okay for blacks to whisper to one another and shake their heads when we see 20,30 and even 40 year old men wearing their pants damn near their ankles and some unable to complete a damn sentence. And lets not talk about the junk thats on BET and other cable networks. Who pulls the licenses of these networks, when they continue to depict such images?

Apparently this is a war that Al Sharpton is apparently losing. Either that or the networks have paid him off.

Has anyone seen Al?

Fanz23 - Kiss Where The Sun Don't Shine

My latest sports vent and it's aimed at once again at the sports media. As most of you know, Tiger Woods plans to sit down and have a press conference to do whatever, apologize, cry! I don't know! but I wish he would reconsider or say what is really on his damn mind! and..

That's none of ya'll business what I do on my personal time. It's none of your business what he does or do it too, it just ain't and the sports media and media in general ought let him have that. What Tiger did or admitted to doing is only for his wife and his family to hear and either accept or reject his apology.

Not the media! He cheated on his wife! not on the damn golf course! He's famous because he plays golf! not because he's Ward damn Cleaver or Mike Brady. He lures millions to watch him play on Saturday and even more on Sundays when he's about to notch another win. And that's what the so called media ought to be reporting on.

Somehow that's changed, the media today is competing with other venues that garbage reporting is the norm and we get a bunch of people with graveyards in their closets giving their opinions and forcing their so called moral values on it's readers or listeners. And by the way, Mike Greenburg is still pulling a check for his Martin Luther "Coon" mistake, Jim Lampley is still calling fights after his arrest and no contest plea for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, but yet he opined about Floyd Mayweather, Jr.'s tax problem. Meanwhile former Cowboys receiver and Hall of Famer Michael Irvin loses his job, after ESPN gleefully reported that a woman is suing him for alleged assault. Never mind prosecutors and police found no credence in this woman's claim, ESPN ran with it. I don't recall seeing Greenburg's mistake on the breaking news wire.

So if I'm Tiger, I'll skip the press conference, steal a page from Michael Jordan and have Ahmad Rashad pass on my thoughts and give him scoops..Ef! the rest. and in meantime, steal a page from Barry Bonds, and break all the damn records there is in golf, before he hits 40 and in a legend's fashion, when the record is out of reach and the media has got to say your name, on the 18th hole and all you need is a putt to win...In Jordan fashion, knock that thing down and when the crowd and media surrounds you...

Repeat Larry Holmes last words, when he was robbed by the judges in his second Michael Spinks fight..I'll gladly pass out chapstick.

Quotable: BHO and Counter Quote: RL

"I think that the most important thing for the public to understand is, we're not handling any of these cases any different than the Bush administration handled them all through 9/11."


Counter Quotable: RL

I thought Bush was a war criminal. I thought Bush's policies made us hated and less safe. I thought Bush's policies added up to recruitment for Al-Qaeda, and yet our president, our young man-child president now says he's no different than the Bush administration.
