To Mr. Rudy Giuliani: Have You No Shame!

Yea, I said it...
We all know:

All is fair in love and politics.

And that:

Politics is a contact sport.

Got it.

Yet in still...

Even among the lowest of low bottom feeders in this mostly dishonorable profession, Rudy Giuliani has the distinction of being the scum de la scum (and I am being kind -- no really I am).

Rudy G seems to thrive on being the consummate and designated jerk in whatever room he enters. He will say or do anything to bring about attention. So much so, Rudy's kids have been known to cringe when pop grabs the mic -- that is when they are not shoplifting.

His tenure as mayor of NYC -- affectionately called Rudy Time by the thug storm troopers in blue as they sodomized Abner Louima -- was riddled with look-the-other-way police abuse. As Rudy sees it:

“White police officers won’t be there if you weren’t killing each other 70 percent of the time," Giuliani went on to tell Dyson.

But in his latest vitriolic rant he went HAM on President Obama's love and loyalty for country. In a speech that could have been written by self-proclaimed child molester, gun nut, racist and washed up rock star Ted Nugent, Rudy said:

“I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Giuliani said during the dinner at the 21 Club, a former Prohibition-era speakeasy in midtown Manhattan. “He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.” Read more

Rudy is a walking embodiment of hate speech. As such, he has endeared himself to the likes of Fox Nation and the Rush Limbaugh ditto heads. The GOP -- angry old white men and their Stepford Wives -- claim they want to rebrand their party to be more attractive to non-whites (good luck with that mission) but all we get is tired old white men like Rudy talking crazy shit.

Keeping it one hundred, the White House responded by stating:

“I can tell you that it’s sad to see when somebody who has attained a certain level of public stature and even admirat ion tarnishes that legacy so thoroughly,” Mr. Earnest said. “And the truth is I don’t take any joy or vindication or satisfaction from that. I think, really, the only thing that I feel is I feel sorry for Rudy Giuliani today.”  source

Malcolm X: "Our Own Black Shining Prince"

Brother Ossie Davis spoke these eloquent words of homage -- almost 50 years ago -- at the funeral of El Hajj Malik Shabazz -- aka Malcolm X.

Malcolm X

Born: May 19, 1925
Assassinated: February 21, 1965

Here—at this final hour, in this quiet place—Harlem has come to bid farewell to one of its brightest hopes—extinguished now, and gone from us forever.

For Harlem is where he worked and where he struggled and fought—his home of homes, where his heart was, and where his people are—and it is, therefore, most fitting that we meet once again—in Harlem—to share these last moments with him.

Lagos, Nigeria The Africa You Dont See On Television


Grammy Report: Kanye pulls another Taylor Swift?

Getting Swifted
He's back...

Just when you thought it was safe to watch a music award show again, Kanye strikes once more.

Who can forget his mic grabbing 2009 MTV awards rant at the expense of Taylor Swift for winning best video over Beyoncé?

"Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'm gonna let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!."


At this year's Grammys, the overbearing man-child had another Taylor Swift moment -- well almost -- when this time Beyoncé lost album of the year award to Beck

Teachers fired for teaching African-American history at Howard University Middle-School?

If a race has no history, if it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated.

This just in:
 
Students walked out of a Washington, D.C., charter school on Monday to protest the treatment of three teachers they believe were punished for teaching too much black history

Made In Africa: Three Cars Designed And Manufactured In Africa by Farai Gundan for Forbes Magazine online

According to the World Bank, Sub-Saharan Africa is projected to remain one of the fastest growing regions in the world.

While Africa’s economy is soaring past most regions with an annual growth of about 5% due mainly to increased agriculture production, infrastructure investment including transportation, ports and energy as well as buoyant services led by tourism, telecommunications and financial services, the continent’s middle class is expected to swell to approximately 300 million people.

Chris Wallace BLASTS 'Dicey Politics' Of Netanyahu Sneaking In To Address Congress

"Why can't  we be friends?"
I just had a fall out my chair moment.

Why?

Fox news disses GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner for inviting Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu -- on a sly-tip -- to address Congress without following protocol of notifying the White House.

First a lil background info:

New England Astericks? Facts don't lie.

Partners in crime?
 
Football aficionados and even casual fans are asking from East to West and North to South:

Is the epic success of Bill Belichick and the New England organization forever tainted?

The Belichick era track record speaks for itself:

The Patriots were aided by the highly controversial Tuck Rule (one of the worst call in NFL history), Spygate; and now Deflategate.

Just think:
