One thing that I really do not want to do here is analyze and or discuss politics because politics are just not my thang, but lately, it has been hard to stay silent.
By now, I am sure that you heard or read about Bob Johnson’s comments toward Barack as he supported the Clinton’s, yes the potential presidency of “Billary” Clinton.
“To me, as an African American, I am frankly insulted the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Hillary and Bill Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues — when Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood; I won’t say what he was doing, but he said it in his book — when they have been involved,” Bill Johnson 2007
First – who the fuck are “we”?
Second – “as an African American, I am frankly insulted the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid”. Aren’t you the same nigga that brought “us” BET uncut videos, Comic View, Ms Cita’s World, took away the news programming, excessive reruns of second rate shows, sold Black Entertainment to a white owned company, and enforced the idea that 24 hours of videos with gospel and church programming all day Sunday??????????? Nigga please! “We” are insulted that you think “we” Negroes are entertained by something you established. I know you think we were entertained but the majority of us you that you worked hard at bamboozling us and saw past your bullshit.
Third – We all know that Barack puffed a J & loved it. Because the man is real, he admitted to it instead of bitching up like the other 1st “Black president”. Let’s be serious!!!
Fourth – There are a whole lot of Black folk out there that can see past Billary’s “commited” racial connection & the obvious body slam that Billary attempted to jade MLK’s legacy. I would break this down further, but my blog buddy Renea has already done that, so why reinvent the well.
With all this said, Bob Johnson I’m screaming this in your face and other Hillary fans who think what she said was OK; bros before hoes!!! Yes, “bros before hoes”, is tacky as hell to say & even worse that hot dick & nuts, but I thought it would be important to quote something that I learned while watching thugged out “uncut videos.”
As far as I am concerned, your BET legacy has done as much mental and social damage as Tookie William’s.
Anyway, I found a great read on Black Embarrassing Television here.
