Sojourner's Place

give me a break! its racist! period! paragraph!  

Posted by SjP in , , ,

I am simply tired of racist images and comments being passed off as something other than what they are. RACIST. You can call it a joke...you can call it a parody...you can even call it part of your history or tradition. But you know what? Just like a rose by any other name is still a rose; RACISM is still RACISM even when you're trying to convince me that its a rose!

Stimulus package and a crazy a$$ chimpanzee my a$$. A parody! Give me a break! And can somebody - anybody - tell me why - if it was suppose to be a political parody - the chimp was killed on a city street? And just WTH does the sign on the light pole say about a "dog". But, it wasn't intended to be racist. Yeah! Right! Give me a break!

Damn it! I'M TIRED OF THIS CRAP! I'm feeling a real rant coming on and right on the heels of my latest rant against those ugly racist a$$ creatures deemed by some as cute little dolls that are a part of their culture, history, and tradition...OH WELL NAW! A rant filled with a lot of four letter words that would shame the most shameless sailor.

WHEW! Thank God that out here in the Afrosphere, there is someone who is able to discussed the GD cartoon in such calm and smooth manner! Much obliged Baratunde, aka Jack Turner, for giving us the 411 about "your interview on MSNBC today.




You said everything I wanted to say without the "color". You were cool, calm, and collected. Like someone else we all no who just does not succumb to the drama around him!

Obliged to you for hearing me,
and now old SjP ain't got nothin' more to say...

There must be a story behind this that we in the UK don't know about. Was a chimp killed in the street or something? Whats is stimulus package? Would like to know more background.

Duh - sorry SJP just saw the link and clicked it. Shameless snakey stealth racism!

So they call George Bush "Curious George" - depicting the White man as a monkey. All the while the patient stealth racist sits and waits for the opportunity. And then it comes into his sites - a Black politician and a recent news story (any monkey related news story will do) about an ape up to no good. And he draws the two together into a parody. Any complaints and he pulls out his magic shield - all the cartoons depicting Bush as a monkey-man.

All this is transparently disingenuous patient opportunist stealth racism. Let’s name and shame them for what they are.

While they are in denial about being a nation of cowards, black rage is boiling, soon to spill over.

I'm SO with you on this! It's totally racist and disgusting. When the New Yorker put out it's Obama cover last year people were so quick to say it was satire, but allowing covers like that in main media magazines gives the OK for so-called comics like this one.

It's like people want to strike up riots and burn crosses again just because we have a Black president.

Hey Sojourner.

This one is so obvious it's kinda surprising to me there even has to be a discussion about it, you know? I mean, do we spend hours debating the true color of the sky? Or whether chicken have teeth?

I don't support that kind of humor. Not at all.

There's a fine line between making fun and pointing a finger. In other words, laughing with you or at you.

Totally racist! I am appalled!!!

Sjp, This is pissing more off in so many ways. I'm glad that so many afrospear bloggers are posting on this. Revvy Rev. is right, black rage is boiling, I feel sorry for America if it boils over. The writing is on the wall. The media has to stop this frenzy, as do the American people.

The NY Post showed their true colors and black folks are mad, Eric Holder told the truth and white folks are mad. A majority white party is giving a black president a hard time. A black president is trying to make nice with white folks...just a regular day in America.

SjP,

First there was this nasty little one frame. Then there is the insulting half assed apology that followed it.

I see you did my cussing on the cartoon. I am pretty heated period about the whole thing period.

It isn't over yet!
I suggest that everybody tighten up their seatbelts because it is going to be a bumpy ride.
