And what exactly did Barack Obama back down on? What exactly has he done that makes you think it's OK for Bill Maher to question his blackness and manliness every other week? What?
Me too. This thread is quite sickening to me. Bill Maher is about as far from courageous and decent as you can get. And he surely isn't any kind of man. And yet you have black people on here high fiving him for attacking Barack Obama blackness and masculinity. It's crazy.
Quentin is a racist who deals with blacks, only to make sick fun of them as in most of his movies. He tries to impress the bad ass white audience who may interact with black daily but still believe they are superior and more powerful. He got Jamie because whites see him as the most current and accomplished black actor in white hollywood today. He'll do anything for fame and money that's why he's accepted. Now that he's successful it's means much more to degrade him. I know people are gonna say it's a comedy like a modern day a minstrel show. You laughing with Quentin black ppl?
Oh and I don't care if the slave wins in the end, he still wants to put the image out there, he's not slick and tries to get away with lots of sit. I just hope black people don't start ranting and giving him the negative attention that he wants. for once see the trap, [EXPLETIVE] if you black had seen the trap years ago he wouldn't be making a movie like this. Stop being so gullible
tiplite2004- Excuse me but that does not justify Quentin to use this word in his movie. Screw that mess. I'm personally contacting his office to boycott this mess of a movie. Some of you passive knee grows need to go on ahead and keep your comments to yourself because you starting to look weak.
So by this definition there are a TON of black people who are not black to you then. Pretty much every rapper, they make harmful violent colorist lyrics and associate it with black culture and a lot of them never speak on black issues. I mean we can spend all day snatching black cards according to your standard, half the NBA, I am sure a lot of black people that post here aren't really black either. LOL
Yes to all of this! It is astonishing to me how easy it is to pull the wool over some black people's eyes. A white person like Bill Mahr can say all the ignorant, degrading mess in the world about black people but as long as he prefaces it with, "I'm not racist, I'm just being real" it's all good? GTFOHWTBS. I used to watch his show, but I can no longer stomach all of the snide and condescending remarks he makes toward his black panel guests. If you don't catch them, then you obviously must tune out during the panel discussion, because it is disgustingly BLATANT. If I was in a setting with a white person who talked to me like that, I would never interact with them again. There is a whole lot of show in between the monologue and New Rules, and I don't think his supporters are really paying attention to that part. They can't be.
It has already been reported that large numbers of American citizens do not have the new ID required by those Republican governors. Large numbers of college age youth, elders, the poor, minorities--in fact MILLIONS of citizens lack the ID. Furthermore, there's NO EVIDENCE of massive voter fraud. And given that as many as 25% of African-Americans just in the so-called "swing states" lack such ID, the REAL INTENT of the Repulbican fascist governors is clear. For we know that very few AA folk vote Republican, just as few Blacks voted Democrat during the 19the Century. As far as AA folk are concerned, the aim of the Republicans with their new ID requirements are basically the same as that of the Dixiecrats with their grandfather clauses and poll tax: Disfranchisment. In short, the Right is prepared to STEAL the 2012 election if they cannot win it honestly. Moreover, there NO EVIDENCE of widespread voter fraud which Republicans fabricate as their pretext for the voter ID. The REAL FRAUD is the voter ID laws imposed by the fascistic Republicans. And he who does not see this is the one wanting in intelligence or honesty or both.
I guess you meant Charles Dickens (rather than Carlyle) as author of "Tale of Two Cities." But do you happen to like Thomas Carlyle as well? I don't recall reading Carlyle in any English classes as a student. I discovered him partly because of references to him made in writings by W.E.B. Du Bois and speeches by Dr. King. And then there were references to Carlyle in a seminar in Transcendentalism I did take years ago as a student. Someday I must revisit some of Carlyle's writings.
|Let any white conservative make just a few of the racial jokes Bill has made and there will be hell to pay. Oh, but he can't be racist because he has black friends, has dated black women etc... his ghetto pass is good right? People look at him through rose tinted glasses but I peep game. He's not slick. I've encountered so many white people like him, who are condescending under the guise of comedy. Shit ain't cool and I tell them that from jump.|
