RF23 - Because He's Black

RF23 - Because He's Black

I haven't heard the Tom Joyner Show in about some years and all about ceased going to his website, I guess because my kind wasn't welcomed on his site and Joyner and myself had an email volley on the subject of barack obama, where I scored a no love TKO! on the former commodores bandmember from Alabammy.

Not only has Joyner remained at the old "new low", but I think he succeeded by digging exactly one foot deep and two inches far left at the old "new low." By suggesting that his audience and black folk in general vote for obama, because he's black and the right thing to do is condescending and downright ignorant of Joyner to spew his racism over the airwaves.

But he's not the first to do so among black talkshow host or dj's. Recently, Steve Harvey likened Tavis Smiley and Prof. Cornel West as "Toms" because these two men had the nerve to criticize this president on their "Poverty Tour." Harvey said, "Tom is driving the bus." This is the same Tavis Smiley that received ridicule and was betrayed by Joyner when Smiley openly supported Hilary Clinton for President over obama. Heh, looking at hindsight it appears Smiley is probably right.

Smiley and West appeared on "The Larry Elder" Show a couple of weeks ago in what I called was a missed opportunity for two of the three men, I greatly admire was on the air and nothing was accomplished, except that one had to prove how conservative or liberatarian he was and the other proving how liberal he was. But Smiley made an interesting point, in which I disagreed, but to support his criticism of barack, was that this president squandered a great opportunity to make a change and he didn't. He also said that this president should have, with both houses in his back pocket or as barack said, driving the bus with the republicans in the backseat, should have passed a third, fourth TARP and given it to the cities and not the states.

I disagreed.

But back to Joyner. It's a shame that a good portion of black folk [not anyone in this group presently contributing] gave Joyner an amen, when he said it. I give Joyner a shaking my damn head. No need to seek his termination, because apparently if you are a white democrat or black, the media gives a pass to open racist remarks as their right to free speech, but let Limbaugh, Hannity or even Larry Elder say that..

Well you know...

RF23 - Dodger Sink To A New Low..

According to Fox Sports, The Dodgers and it's Owner, Frank McCourt is seeking to place blame on Dodger Stadium beating victim, Bryan Stow for being involved in an altercation, which almost killed Stow. Also, sharing the blame are obvious the animals that nearly killed Stow.

McCourt who is fighting to hold on to a team, that had a sub-par year, a drop of over 1 million fan attendance and disapproval rating slightly higher than barack obama's when it comes to Los Angeles area fans, is also stooping so low to blame the victim of his own beating and for what?

Wearing a Giants jersey?

Rooting for his hometown team?

Or he should have known what he was getting into before he entered Dodger Stadium? I mean hell, it's no secret that Dodger Stadium is/was dubbed "The Black Hole II" for a reason. Everyone has heard, seen fights, or witnessed over zealous fans talking smack, which leads to fighting in the stands or handling it after the game. But to place blame on Stow, who's only fault was that his kids had to witness the cruelty of what human beings do to each other and now they're going to witness their father's name and character brutalized some more!

and for what?

To hold on to a team, that over 1 million fans refused to see in person, and oh yeah! wants McCourt out as owner.

The Dodgers have sunk to a new low and it's sad, because this is one of the most storied franchises in baseball history. And now it's history and legacy has been robbed by an owner who only wanted to use them as an ATM machine. If the Dodgers want to place blame on Stow, then the fans ought to thank him for being the icing on McCourts dwindling cake.

RF23 - If It's So Bad

With the killing of ghaddifi today by what some are reporting by the French of all people or the rebels in which we supported in hopes to brighting up the future of all Libyans.

Or did it?

According to Aqeela Sherrills, a local Los Angeles community activist, on his facebook page he wrote the following:

" And apparently today, “they” have been successful in murdering Gadhafi… Lest we forget:Under the evil dictator Libya enjoyed the following:· Highest standard of Living in Africa· Homes are considered a human right"

Well ya'll know me, I have to come in and play a little with my brother in law and wrote:

"For some strange reason, i feel a little different about this killing, than I did for osama bin laden or saddam you have someone, who got that the US was pissed about 9/11, disclosed it's wmd's. I dunno, I guess it is way delayed justice for the Lockerbie terrorist attack..anyway, it's not apparently [ghaddafi killed] and who is "they"?"

I'm not going to add the other comments from others, because, well, never mind. Anyway, he responded, probably getting mad at me because, it seems that everytime he writes something on his page, here I come messing with him. Anyway, he responds:

"You know who "they" are...them that started the whole campaign. Guess???

Being obtuse to what or who he's talking about, I wrote:

"Islamic Brotherhood? no, they're in really who?"

And then he said exactly what I knew what he was going to say:

"The good old U.S of A and it's band of international crony's, you know us..." and he went further..

"Our foreign policy is fucked up! We keep trying to real it in however, we've discovered that WE don't actually control can't vote it away because if u go up against it, "they" will kill you, Like they killed MLK, Kennedy, Sadam, ghadafi and so many others"

Huh?! When did our foreign policy get Dr. King killed? I thought it was over 100 years of democratic backed racism and Jim Crow laws that got King assasinated. Last checked that was our policy..

You know in the past, I used to equate black folk who spew out liberal talking points as slaves and on plantations. Yeah, before Hillary Clinton equated a republican majority ruled houses, as plantations and Bryant Gumbel equated the Winter Olympics as a GOP convention and most recently calling NBA Commissioner David Stern as plantation overseer...I was going around calling black folk who refuse to use their own minds, decisions and individual rights to vote what was best for them, as slaves. At times, I think I ought to go back and restart it, because for some reason, there are some people in this country, who are American, can't stand our country. They can't.

We kill saddam....not happy

We kill osama...pissed off

and now, although we didn't do's our foreign policy thats fucked up.

Another thing, that we red, white and blue loving Americans like to say is, well, if it's so bad..get the fuck out, to people who all day and night bitch, moan and complain about what's wrong with our country and when asked what country is better..silence. Sometimes it gets so quiet that movie theaters ought to ask that question, right before the main attraction.

So again, if it's soooo bad in this country and you are enjoying the rights to move about the country and with a passport can visit other countries [not unless you owe child support]..then why aren't you practicing your individual right to move the hell on. And spare me, I'm American [now you're one of us] and I can say what I want. Yeah, it's true, you do have the right to say what you want, thanks to our fucked up foreign policy against the British and every enemy afterward, which includes the democrat led Southern forces sportin' the bars and stars whistlin' "dixie."

But then again, a good portion of black folk miss massa..

RF23-Guys were Guys and Men were Men...

Hey, my name is JC and I'm from Long Beach, California..No, not born and raised, but from..In reality, I'm a US Navy brat that bounced around on the needs of the United States Navy. You see, my dad was in the Navy, where he served his country for 21 years and finally retiring as a Senior Chief Petty Officer. During his tenure, we lived in Navy housing including Long Beach Naval Housing on the Westside of Long Beach, where I went to the Naval Housing daycare and then to Webster Elementary School for Pre-school and Kindegarten. In Navy housing there were white and black kids we played with, but the majority of the housing area, were filled with white kids and then we moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in a neighborhood where it was majority white and there we stayed until 1978.

And then it happened.

Feeling his kids were too white and needing to be toughened up, my father moved us from the white neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to the blackest of black neighborhood of Compton, California..and the funny thing is that he was stationed in San Diego, California aboard the USS Prarie (AD-15). And to make things worse, three of us had to be bussed to Mckinley Elementary School, where we were reading at a higher level, writing at a higher level and oh yeah...

Didn't say "ain't", "fissin' to" and what up blood? and then cuzz. Hell we didn't say "cut" we said "skip" when someone jumped the line, and usually when the person cut in line, it was right in front of us, when they did it, we usually heard, "shut up or I'll fuck you up, bitch" or suck my dick, punk!

We were bullied. Chastised for the way we talked and behaved. But you know what, we defended ourselves and the bullying stopped..

So excuse me if I don't get the drama of teen-agers or young kids commiting suicide because of

Bullying. We all were bullied, talked about for wearing "bubble gums" for tennis shoes, still wearing tough skins and God help you if were seen in Zody's

There used to be this reality show called, "HS Reunion" and always, always there was a guy or girl in the house still carrying a grudge toward a classmate because that classmate made their life hell in HS. I once commented that these people should have gotten over that and that the biggest scoreboard is how they're living their lives, but apparently not. But still today we got kids actually killing themselves because either one kid or a group of kids are talking about them..Whatever happened to sticks and stones? And whatever happened to defending yourself and the adage of "If you defend yourself, win or lose, the bullying will stop." That seems gone and now we see reports on CNN on how to stop bullying..I'm sorry that is as useful as the guy on the radio telling he has books to stop your unruly child. Both the bully and the unruly, misbehaving, tantrum throwing child both need they ass beat. We don't need to see other wimps, on television describing their pain of being bullied, when they should have been describing how they balled up their fist, and swung for the fences, kicked and bit as hard as he/she could. Instead, we get stories of young kids, commiting suicide because they're gay or perceived to be gay or girls commiting suicide, because of what someone said about them on the internet!

Is this what Gen. George S. Patton's America become? A bunch of lets talk about it and find out the reason why..

Are we French?
