  1. Wow! I’m surprised to hear you say this Troy. There was no real reason to mention this (IMO). The documentary was about his compelling artistry. Attempting to be a revisionist about his past indiscretions serves no real purpose. I see no need to drag the man’s personal life into a celebration of his art. Do not misunderstand me -I do not endorse nor condone spousal abuse. I think men who beat or physically assualt women are cowards. But I have issues with Americas putrid tabloid culture of sensationalism and venomous gossip about peoples personal lives (e.g. Tiger Woods). Some of the worlds greatest artists were abusive towards women (Diego Rivera, Miles Davis, Pablo Picasso, Billy Eckstine, Frank Lloyd Wright, et al). But their lack of civility in their personal relationships in no way diminishes their artistic accomplishments. It’s like Pete Rose and gambling. Yeah, he was naughty but he was one of the games greatest base ball players. Banning him from the hall of fame was bullshit. Attempting to enforce a litmus test of piety, incorruptable morality or spousal faithfulness serves no real purpose when assessing ones artistic accomplishments or creativity. Two different things.
  2. I guess I just have issues with the pathological preoccupation of peoples personal lives and not their success or lack of accomplishment in their occupation or craft.
  3. Agreed. The is so much toxic hyperbole being dumped on this man, it’s shocking. I’m not an Obamanite but I do stand behind the man. It’s amazing how many people do not understand or choose to ignore the intense resistance he faces from his political adversaries and the race haters. The fierce partisan gridlock in congress is the cornerstone of his seemingly failure to get any traction. These people (republicans) are in a death struggle to make Obama appear as a failure. They are going to do everything they can to block or defeat any initiatives he attempts. But the man cannot enact any major legislation or policy chances without the support of congress. The republicans will continue to vote against "anything" he attempts (no matter what it is) and the democrats are splintered between the Blue Dogs, middle of the roadists and leftists. How is that his fault? With the republicans in lock step against “anything” he attempts and the democrats fractured between yea and nay on much of his proposals -nothing will or can get done. Thus, it appears that he is doing nothing. But this is not a complete nor accurate picture. As far as national security is concerned, yes, I was disappointed about Afghanistan. But had he withdrew, it would have been politically catastrophic for him. Add the health care debacle and then withdrawing from Afghanistan, his political enemies would have an orgy of celebration. They would skewer him 24/7 as weak on national security, gutless, giving in to the radical left and revitalize the grotesque lies of him being a Muslim. The blaring air raid siren of him putting America at risk by capitulating to Islamic terrorists would be blare non-stop. I agree that Afghanistan is a black hole for the military and no one to date has ever conquered this sad pathetic country. But there is a bigger reality here that many people resist or do not understand. His enemies are like a little rabid Chiwawa, yelping, barking and snapping at his heels with every step. If he withdrew, in private, they would yelp with joy, clap wildly and high five each other. But publically -they would politically crucify him! I met a guy this past week end at a black cultural center that was featuring a music event. He was working on a PhD in music, was Czech and 6”10”! He lives in an area of San Diego County (Fallbrook) that is virtually all white and extremely redneck. Blacks and Mexicans are very, very unwelcome there. He told me he constantly hears whites ranting, cursing and voicing their fantasies of Obama being killed. He also said, “ I support this man because I know he has good intentions for this country. But there is racism and stiff political opposition to everything he does. They want him to fail because he is black man.” Those were his exact words. If a 6’10” man from the Czech Republic can see this -why cannot other Americans?
  4. UCSD Frat Denies Involvement In 'Ghetto-Themed' Party UCSD Officials Condemn 'Compton Cookout' Held Last Weekend POSTED: 4:15 am PST February 17, 2010 SAN DIEGO -- Administrators at the University of California, San Diego are condemning a weekend ghetto-themed party thrown off-campus by fraternity students to mock Black History Month, but they aren't likely to discipline anyone, it was reported Wednesday. The so-called "Compton Cookout" event urged all participants to wear chains, don cheap clothes and speak very loudly, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Female participants were encouraged to be "ghetto chicks." "It's insulting, it's derogatory, we're being made fun of, we're being made a mockery of and we're not being taken seriously," said UCSD student Elize Diop, who is black. The invitation read, "For those of you who are unfamiliar with ghetto chicks -- Ghetto chicks usually have gold teeth, start fights and drama, and wear cheap clothes ...," the Union-Tribune reported. Click Here To Read The Full Invitation UCSD student Chevelle Newell told 10News, "The part where it talks about black women … that's not what I am." Jeff Gattas, the UCSD executive director of communications and public affairs, told the Union-Tribune that because the event wasn't sanctioned by the university or run by a student organization, university officials don't have a reason to penalize party hosts. Campus chancellor Marye Anne Fox learned about the party Tuesday and reacted by e-mailing a statement to the university's student body and staff, according to the newspaper, which reported less than 2 percent of UCSD's undergraduates are black. "We were distressed to learn that over the weekend an offensively themed student party, mocking the commemoration of Black History Month, took place off campus," her statement read. "We strongly condemn this event and the blatant disregard of our campus values." Click Here To Read Chancellor Fox's Full Statement The university publicly identified the party planners only as a group of students but in an e-mail obtained by the Union-Tribune from Gary Ratcliff, assistant vice chancellor for student life, the event was linked to Pi Kappa Alpha. "It was not an official Pike event, but the students who posted it on Facebook were members of Pike and other frats," he wrote, the newspaper reported. Garron Engstrom, president of Pi Kappa Alpha, issued a statement Wednesday which denied the fraternity was associated with the party. UCSD student Arthur Vigil said, "It's very insensitive. I don't think they're representing the school well." Read The Invitation To The "Compton Cook Out," As Posted On Facebook: "February marks a very important month in American society. No, i'm not referring to Valentines day or Presidents day. I'm talking about Black History month. As a time to celebrate and in hopes of showing respect, the Regents community cordially invites you to its very first Compton Cookout. For guys: I expect all males to be rockin Jersey's, stuntin' up in ya White T (XXXL smallest size acceptable), anything FUBU, Ecko, Rockawear, High/low top Jordans or Dunks, Chains, Jorts, stunner shades, 59 50 hats, Tats, etc. For girls: For those of you who are unfamiliar with ghetto chicks-Ghetto chicks usually have gold teeth, start fights and drama, and wear cheap clothes - they consider Baby Phat to be high class and expensive couture. They also have short, nappy hair, and usually wear cheap weave, usually in bad colors, such as purple or bright red. They look and act similar to Shenaynay, and speak very loudly, while rolling their neck, and waving their finger in your face. Ghetto chicks have a very limited vocabulary, and attempt to make up for it, by forming new words, such as "constipulated", or simply cursing persistently, or using other types of vulgarities, and making noises, such as "hmmg!", or smacking their lips, and making other angry noises,grunts, and faces. The objective is for all you lovely ladies to look, act, and essentially take on these "respectable" qualities throughout the day. Several of the regents condos will be teaming up to house this monstrosity, so travel house to house and experience the various elements of life in the ghetto. We will be serving 40's, Kegs of Natty, dat Purple Drank- which consists of sugar, water, and the color purple , chicken, coolade, and of course Watermelon. So come one and come all, make ya self before we break ya self, keep strapped, get yo shine on, and join us for a day party to be remembered- or not. " Ref: White Ghetto Party
  5. OMG!!!! This is embarrassingly ridiculous. Black directors make movies they feel are relevant to their personal agendas and those of their targeted audience (which is generally black). White people have nothing to do with it. Negroes need to move past their paranoiac race fantasies of persecution and see reality for it is. The Negroes who were upset about Chris Rocks movie were embarrassed that non-whites would now know the astringent details of the difficulty of grooming and managing black hair (as if they didn’t already know!). Outside of the deep rooted shame and self loathing of their natural hair, there is no sane reason for Negroes to protest such a simple movie. I personally heard two black women bitterly complain the Rock had “exposed black women’s secrets” (I know…I know, as pathetic as that sounds -I actually heard them say it!). Same can be said for the movie Precious. It was a hard core gritty story about a young black woman’s tragic life. All the trappings and characters in the movie are real and black America is filled with legions of Negroes who are carbon copies of every single character in this movie. So why all the histrionics and temper tantrums about situations, behavior and characters that are pandemic in black America? Makes no sense…….
  6. Is Google going to far? It really doesn't matter. Right now, who do you think is winning? Your right to privacy and beliefs about your civil rights or the priorities of Home Land Security and their war on terror? Security cameras are common place throughout Europe and they are every where. Google is just the tip of the iceberg. The security and surveillance tide is moving forward -not backwards. Many people are excited about this technology while others have privacy concerns like you do. Don't matter. They are here to stay and there is nothing you can do about it other than feel anxious or uncomfortable. But I am concerned about Google's servers keeping records of all your internet activity. But what can you do....?
  7. Hmmmm....That's interesting. I never thought about this either. But I guess it makes sense (I have no data or information to refute it). I do know what gay men (as a group) from what I have seen, tend to take better care of themselves, tend to be better educated and they are really into maintaining their physiques and working out, than non-gay men. I live in San Diego and there is a large gay/lesbian community here. I see it every day. And one thing that has always annoyed me, is I constantly (and mean constantly!) hear, is when women see a very handsome guy with a very nice physique, the first thing they will proclaim, "Oh! He's gay!" WTF??!! When I ask why, they respond by saying, "Well, look at him! He's gorgeous! Most guys like that are gay." Now, those are their words -not mine. How and why they came to such a mindset is beyond me. But as I said, I often hear this type of stereotyping. As far as black gays having problems finding life time mates, I don't find that hard to believe. The white gays (as a group) tend to be better educated and are better off financially and socially than the black gays (as group). I have no imperial data to support this, but based on what I have seen, it seems to be the case. I see many older gay and lesbian couples who have been together for many years. I have yet to see a black gay couple (male) that have been together for many years. I'm sure they exist, but I just don't see them as compared to long term white gay couples.
  8. Yes I did. What where the circumstances? Can't say for sure but these guys were very aggressive and determined to get legal mates in order to stay in Japan. Many had come from countries where being returned would have certainly meant their demise. There were those who were former anti-government guerrilla soldiers. Had they been deported, going back to their home country would prove to be fatal. They knew this so they would do anything not get get deported. For others, there was no desire nor need to return to where they came from. They could manage a quality of life (in Japan) they could not have in their native country. That's just the way it is....
  9. Basketball league for white Americans targets Augusta By Billy Byler | Staff Writer Tuesday, January 19, 2010 A new professional basketball league boasting rosters made up exclusively of white Americans has its eyes set on Augusta, but the team isn't receiving a warm welcome. The All-American Basketball Alliance announced in a news release Sunday evening that it intends to start its inaugural season in June and hopes Augusta will be one of 12 cities with a team. "Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league," the statement said. Augusta Mayor Deke Copenhaver, who has publicly expressed his support for minor league teams in the past, said he would not do the same for this team. "As a sports enthusiast, I have always supported bringing more sporting activities to Augusta," he said. "However, in this instance I could not support in good conscience bringing in a team that did not fit with the spirit of inclusiveness that I, along with many others, have worked so hard to foster in our city." Clint Bryant, athletic director at Augusta State University, laughed when he heard the news. "It's so absurd, it's funny, but it gives you an idea of the sickness of our society" he said. "It shows you what lengths people will go to just to be mean-spirited. I think at any basketball level, no matter if it's all black, all white, all Hispanic, all Asian or anyone else, the players should just be a basketball team." Don "Moose" Lewis, the commissioner of the AABA, said the reasoning behind the league's roster restrictions is not racism. "There's nothing hatred about what we're doing," he said. "I don't hate anyone of color. But people of white, American-born citizens are in the minority now. Here's a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like." Lewis said he wants to emphasize fundamental basketball instead of "street-ball" played by "people of color." He pointed out recent incidents in the NBA, including Gilbert Arenas' indefinite suspension after bringing guns into the Washington Wizards locker room, as examples of fans' dissatisfaction with the way current professional sports are run. "Would you want to go to the game and worry about a player flipping you off or attacking you in the stands or grabbing their crotch?" he said. "That's the culture today, and in a free country we should have the right to move ourselves in a better direction." The Atlanta-based league, which will operate as a single-entity owning all of its teams, is looking for local contacts to pay $10,000 to become a "licensee" in one of 12 cities throughout the Southeast. Lewis said he has already received threats from people opposed to the roster restrictions and several cities have told him to stay out of town. Lewis said he has yet to hear from any one in Augusta. "We need a local person ingrained into the community to make this successful," he said. Lewis said he expects to eventually find support in every town with a team. "People will come out and support a product they can identify with. I'm the spoken minority right now, but if people will give us a chance, it'll work... The white game of basketball, which is essentially a fundamental game, works." Lewis said he wasn't sure where the team will play. Augusta has had problems with minor league basketball teams in the past, but the issues never centered around race. The Augusta Drive lasted less than a month before folding in 1995, citing financial reasons. The Augusta Groove made it through a full, 20-game schedule in 2009, but accusations from players and local businesses that the team wasn't paying its bills surrounded the team during the second half of the season. The team later shut down in the offseason. From the Tuesday, January 19, 2010 edition of the Augusta Chronicle
  10. Yeah, it's pretty sad. A post 1970 generation of Negroes have been ghettoized with these silly coonish names. Negroes were desperate to separate themselves from white America and it's racism, so, in their misguided attempt to rename themselves with non-western sounding names, they initially used authentic African names. But soon the pandemic craze of haphazardly making up so-called African sounding names became the norm. Now, there is an entire generation of young black females (the males have equally ridiculous names) with a majority of fatuous names ending with the "a vowel". WTF???? Now, don't misunderstand me, I have no problems with giving your child a different or an unusual name. There are seemingly countless names for children that are non-traditional but they have an origin and meaning. WTF does Shaqunda, Shaniqua, Laqueda, Janinka, Dashanda, Taqueda, Taquesha or Erisha mean????? I used to watch at Mury Povich for entertainment to see these shameless manic Negores ranting and raving, bouncing across the stage and screaming, "....he know he be my baby's daddy!" The mothers would have names like Tasahnda while her two fatherless children would have names like Kashnada and D'Ninqua. It's so sad. I can just imagine what the audience thinks of these Negresses and their fatherless multiple children and those loony names. Let's see, the job application has the name Monisha Tay Tay Jackson. Hmmmmmm.....Is she white? Latino? Maybe Asian? Could she be black? Naaaaahh......No way. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
  11. Nice snippet of information. I also did not realize there was a relationship between the ouster of France from Haiti and the Louisiana Purchase. And yes, when I learned of the mindless racist blather of Limbaughs comments, I also heard about the simple minded nauseous nonsense of Rat Robinson. It was disgusting and inexcusable. I have no idea what world people who think like Limbaugh and Robinson live in. Neither have any links to reality. An indisputable fact....

    Walter Mosley

    My best friend is a Mosley fan also. And as I recall, so is former president Bill Clinton. But I have to be honest about this. I read a few of his books years ago and I just couldn't get with it. I really couldn't. My best friend is a major fan of murder, mystery, detective and "who done it" type fiction. I guess reading nothing but factual grammatically and syntactically sanitized biographies and history books has warped my appreciation for the fiction genre of literature and street pulp......
  13. Sounds good. I guess I'm the opposite. All the books are read are non-fiction. But I used to read all the Robert Ludlum and Frederick Forsyth novels. I loved 'em! Haven't read any in a number of years but thinking about going back and doing so....
  14. This is true. I knew a woman like this about 15 years ago. You could give her a copy of "War and Peace" on Monday and by Thursday, she could tell you every thing in the book and answer any questions you had. And yes, she held a full time job and was a single mother with four kids at home. She was very smart and a ravenous reader. I've always admired people who could rip through books and were in constant search for more literature to digest. I guess I really shouldn't be posting here since my reading consists mainly of biographies, American and military history and not the conventional literature that is discussed here. A few of my favorite historians are John Toland, William Shirer, Richard J. Evans and Paul Johnson. I also appreciate and have quite a few books by Arnold Rampersad, David Levering Lewis, Lawrence Leamer and Taylor Branch. As soon as I finish this bio of Marian Anderson, I'm going to start on "The Race Beat", by Gene Roberts and Hank Klibanoff and "The Coming of The Third Reich", by Richard Evans. I just wish I could read at the accelerated rates as those who consume four of five books a month. I guess maybe because the books I read are of a detailed historical nature and average 475 to 600 pages? I dunno....maybe I'm just a slow reader.....
  15. Ya know, when a good friend of mine told me what this moronic bloated ignoramus said, I did not believe him. I had to look it up. I read it and heard the audio clip. It's difficult to believe that a human being could be that incredibly stupid and racist. But coming from this master of venomous blather, distortions, lies and bombast, it is no surprise. What is more depressing, is the fact that there are millions of people who listen to Limbaugh and cling to every word he says. I guess it says something about the bottom fed gullibility and ignorance of so many Americans.
  16. I don’t think so. There is nothing for me to misrepresent. It is what it is. Those experiences that I spoke of, happened to a number of American female friends I have. I saw it first hand. Not to mention the fact that I lived in Japan and the Africans there were ultra aggressive with Japanese women. They were doing everything they could to get married and get “the ok to stay here card” (which I understand considering where many of them were from). Once again, I saw it first hand when I went to major cities like Tokyo, Shibuya, Ginza and Shinjuku. These African men would walk around with flowers in their hands and brazenly accost Japanese women (yes -I saw it with my own eyes). When they were turned down, they would turn around walk up to another woman. They could not be deterred. I had a Japanese girl friend who despised Africans for this very reason. They were very, very aggressive. Contrary to your sensitivities, I have no reason to lie about this. It happened. And for the record, I'm not suggesting every African male from every African culture is this way. But what my female friends experienced and what I saw personally - did happen.
  17. Oh yeah, I forgot. Nice job Troy! This interface and tools that come with in have put us on the cutting edge of forumdom. Ha! Ha! Ha!
  18. Nothing new about this. I've heard and seen this "let's get married after 30 minutes of meeting" with a few of my female friends. And yes, a number black American women do not take into consideration the cultural differences.
  19. After Judge Cabrera’s historic ruling, little Clitoria Jackson will likely undergo a name change. (DETROIT) In a decision that’s expected to send shockwaves through the African-American community—and yet, give much relief to teachers everywhere—a federal judge ruled today that black women no longer have independent naming rights for their children. Too many black children—and many adults—bear names that border on not even being words, he said. “I am simply tired of these ridiculous names black women are giving their children,” said U.S. Federal Judge Ryan Cabrera before rendering his decision. “Someone had to put a stop to it.” The rule applies to all black women, but Cabrera singled out impoverished mothers. “They are the worst perpetrators,” he said. “They put in apostrophes where none are needed. They think a ‘Q’ is a must. There was a time when Shaniqua and Tawanda were names you dreaded. Now, if you’re a black girl, you hope you get a name as sensible as one of those.” Few stepped forward to defend black women—and black women themselves seemed relieved. “It’s so hard to keep coming up with something unique,” said Uneeqqi Jenkins, 22, an African-American mother of seven who survives on public assistance. Her children are named Daryl, Q’Antity, Uhlleejsha, Cray-Ig, Fellisittee, Tay’Sh’awn and Day’Shawndra. Beginning in one week, at least three white people must agree with the name before a black mother can name her child. “Hopefully we can see a lot more black children with sensible names like Jake and Connor,” Cabrera said. His ruling stemmed from a lawsuit brought by a 13-year-old girl whose mother created her name using Incan hieroglyphics. “She said it would make me stand out,” said the girl, whose name can’t be reproduced by The Peoples News’ technology. “But it’s really just stupid.” The National Association of Elementary School Teachers celebrated Cabrera’s decision. “Oh my God, the first day of school you’d be standing there sweating, looking at the list of names wondering ‘How do I pronounce Q’J’Q’Sha.’?” said Joyce Harmon, NAEST spokeswoman. “Is this even English?” The practice of giving black children outlandish names began in the 1960s, when blacks were getting in touch with their African roots, said historian Corlione Vest. But even he admits it got out of hand. “I have a niece who’s six. I’m embarrassed to say I can’t even pronounce her name,” said Vest, a professor at Princeton University. “Whenever I want to talk to her, I just wait until she looks at me and then I wave her over.” Cabrera’s ruling exempted black men because so few of them are actually involved in their children’s lives. Note: This article is satire, brought to you by the creative minds at The Peoples News. It’s not real, but we hope it made you think. Yes folks this is just satire but let’s face some facts. There are some black women out there who are giving their children outrageous names and those names have nothing to do with our African roots. Clitoria and Tequante are not African names.
  20. Oops! I guess I answered my own question........
  21. It is very tragic. My heart goes out to the Haitians. The death toll will prove to be the undoing of an already underdeveloped struggling economy and social structure. It’s truly sad…..
  22. My best friend told me what this bloated ignorant provocateur said but I could not believe it. I researched it and sure enough, this bombastic racist fool lived up to his reputation. It's sad to see such an arrogant delusional nimrod like this has millions of followers and listeners. I guess this says something about the sad and depressing mindset of so many Americans.
  23. I guess I missed the heads up about the switch over. How about avatars....?
