AGAIN?! WTF: 27 Dead, Including 20 Children, In Elementary School Shooting

Is this our new norm? I mean really, we can't do better? After all, we already accept nightly/daily killings on our inner city streets:

"That's what those people of color do. Why restrict my right to own an assault rifle?"

Now, apparently, we accept the four time a year mass shootings as the price to pay to allow citizens the right to have high powered killing machines. Now we accept nuts going into our schools and hunting five year old kids.

Fox News's Jesse Watters trashed Obama voters, donated $500 to Obama

Obama hater and supporter?
As if we need more proof that Fox News is a fake, counterfeit, sham, fraud, imitation news outfit: Fox's Jesse Watters, who earns his check by regularly trashing Obama on air, contributed 500 dollars to the Obama campaign fund.

You just can't make this ish up. As one commenter stated:  "It's an act--everything they do over there is an act."

One week after the 2012 election, Fox News correspondent Jesse Watters told Bill O'Reilly that Obama voters were "zombies" who supported the president "as long as there was Obamacare, gay marriage and abortion on demand."  source

ESPN’s Rob Parker says ridiculous things about RG3, takes ‘First Take’ to new levels of depravity

I saw this movie before

RGIII has been thrilling, dazzling and entertaining the Football world. He has charisma, charm, intelligence and composure to match his athletic skills.

 He is very articulate and graduated from Baylor University in three years. Thus far as a rookie he stays out of trouble and by all reports he is very humble and respectful to youth, peers, fans and his elders.

So, of course, to the not black enough police, RGIII has been put on notice. Yes, some fool ESPN on air mouth-piece (Rob Parker) wants to know: " RGIII a cornball brother or ...down for the cause..."

In his own ignorance words

"I've talked to some people in Washington, D.C. Some people in [Griffin's] press conferences. Some people I've known for a long time. My question, which is just a straight, honest question, is ... is he a 'brother,' or is he a cornball 'brother?' He's not really ... he's black, but he's not really down with the cause. He's not one of us. He's kind of black, but he's not really like the guy you'd want to hang out with. I just want to find out about him. I don't know, because I keep hearing these things. He has a white fiancĂ©, people talking about that he's a Republican ... there's no information at all. I'm just trying to dig deeper into why he has an issue. Tiger Woods was like, 'I have black skin, but don't call me black.' People wondered about Tiger Woods early on -- about him." source

Negro please: In the aftermath of the last two weeks of NFL back-to-back tragedies involving football players --- Kansas City Chief player kills girl-friend and commits suicide and allegedly drunk  Dallas Cowboy crashes speeding vehicle killing fellow teammate -- players like RGIII are breathes of fresh air.

I am sick of this thugged out, keeping it real and pants sagging image exalted as real blackness and the more intelligent, thoughtful, educated and upbeat brothers being called fake. This upside down ish does not even make a lil bit of sense.

Vince Young keeping it real
Broke azz Vince Young ( VY lost over 34 million dollars in a couple of years) is a former NFL QB and he is currently in football's Wilderness. He was once a star of stars in the football world. Yet he partied himself right out of a job and his savings, but the not black enough police never called out ole VY.

Even my man, Philly QB Mike Vick (and I do think he deserved redemption) after going to jail and losing his money never had his blackness questioned.

So, who was the other QB -- with Hall of Fame stats -- who had his blackness questioned? D Nabb or Donovan McNabb was issued a summons by the not black enough police. His crime: he graduated from college, stayed out of trouble, represented himself professionally on the field and off the field.

Mr Parker, you should be embarrassed for your ignorant comments and you need to have your ESPN microphone privileges revoked -- ASAP!

Story Update:

ESPN has suspended commentator Rob Parker for comments he made regardingWashington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.
ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said: "Following yesterday's comments, Rob Parker has been suspended until further notice. We are conducting a full review."
Parker, appearing on ESPN's "First Take" on Thursday, was asked about Griffin's role as a black quarterback. Parker questioned Griffin's "blackness."
"Is he a brother or a cornball brother?" said Parker, who is black. source

Trumps Kids go Run DMC on Dad: Shut up!!! You talk too much.

I try my best to not report on that lame -- Mr. Comb-Over -- but this latest nugget was too hard to pass-up. From the reports, his progeny -- the folks in-line to inherit his dough -- told the Donald, "thou talk'st too much."

Just before the election, Trump’s three children reportedly went to their dad’s office to ask him to calm down with the Obama-bashing, because it is hurting his reputation:

Using African American natural hair care to fight obesity

In a previous post, I applauded the natural hair style movement for African American women. I wrote:

In my adopted hometown, Washington, DC -- Mocha City if not Chocolate City anymore --  it is common to see fly sistas, of all hues, majestically embracing and sporting natural hair styles. These sisters feel liberated to enhance and accentuate their naturally good hair.They wear: locs, twists, fros, braids, buns, updos etc. read more

Beauty, aesthetic cosmetics and vanity aside, arguably, the greatest side-benefit of natural hair care is health related -- and I don't just mean healthy hair follicles: black women cite hair style concern as one of the top reason for abstaining from physical activity.

The Billionaires' war on workers, labor and unions

The NHL season is slowly melting away due to a management lockout . Yet again, owners have unilaterally decided to cease play until they get what they want (an even bigger portion of the pie). 

Many avid sports fans may not have noticed or cared about missing hockey games, but still the lingering question remains: Is it a mere coincidence that all four major sports -- plus the NFL refs -- were locked out by billionaire owners crying poverty?

Robert F. Kennedy Jr: Fox News Has Divided Country In A Way Not Seen Since Civil War

Not only has Fox News and the Conservative Entertainment Complex served as Drum Majors in the parade of dumbing down America, according to Robert F Kennedy, Jr., they have dangerously divided our country in a fashion a la the Civil War:
