I know my Blog fans know I have been hitting up this whole election thing for a minute and I promise to give it a rest soon but I can’t help it right now. I got that Social Change and Community Service thing in me. I’ve worked with community leaders and politicians on and off for years. Most of them started out as good and honorable people. The few that fell off the Wagon of Goodness I can kick off a high curb and because of their fall from grace, I have to refrain from spitting on them when passing on the street.

Now I know its nasty to hock on a Brotha and if anyone ever did it too me, I hope my online donation site will raise as much as Ron Paul to retain Star Jones cause “I’ll Killa Negro” that put mouth cooties on me.

Looking at these fools try and figure out this election mess, the News, Polls, reporters, Pundits, celebrities, Black people, White people, Gypsies on the move and I’d even put money the Pope’s divine connect to GOD can’t get a hold or a prediction on this Madness. This has never happened before. There is no precedence of this ever happening. Its like the Million Man March backs in the day when the general media couldn’t explain (and still can’t) how all these Black People got together without anyone being tipped off. They were all caught off guard and their pants down trying to comprehend hundreds of thousands of Black Men (because at that time America thought we were all break dancing or in prison) converged on Washington DC and no one get arrested. For the first time the media was off script and had to actually wing it. Wing it as in REPORT IT AS IT WAS HAPPENING. No predictions, no Socio-Political Psychologist (Yes this is actually a job title), no representative from any of the organizations attending, no pre- March segments, the NEWS media couldn’t even rely on their Token Jim Crownies employed to come up with a rebuttal to help simulate controversy. And when it was all over, everyone was forced to be reserved from talking shyt because it was peaceful, positive and focused on Black people only. Focused and positive from start to finished.

When the nature of who you are is so disconnected from the reality of Black people, especially in America, and you have to all of a sudden answer to that reality, the stumble and stammer of words are apparent. How is it that you can explain the thinking and actions of people when it is only based upon tried and tired statistics of Crime, Visions of Hip-Hip, Rap and Gang Bang Porn, Jocking Black Leaders for sound bites and minutes of fame and the handful of successful Blacks whom have lost their way, and when asked to give opinions of events outside of that is expect, MEDIA sweat and cringe when it can’t speak to the possibilities that on how a PEOPLE can and will vote. Answer? America has never had the need to conceptualized the possibility that its “sub-human” society had the capacity to hold the majority’s future in their hands. So now you have a situation where Blacks can anoint the next leader of the Free World and they all have to play nice, tie-toe over and around obvious opinions and Media actually has to report it as it is and say “I DON’T KNOW”. As a society built upon arrogance and self-proclaimed privilege, it makes faces RED with frustration and I love it.

Blacks are in a unique position which will not be seen again in United States National politics, EVER. The playing field will change as soon as these elections are over so that this POWER can never be played or used again. This isn’t anything conspiratorial but it is the nature of politics, it’s the nature of POWER. Even the Latino vote will be neutralized for future elections. The smoke screen of their existence in America was painted as the Illegal Immigrant (knowing that the true illegals are from Eastern Europe, Asia and the Work VISA Card holders imported from this places). As BLACKS are building into a subtle Civil War over Clinton vs. Obama, the stakes are higher when you play Legal vs. Illegal. The dynamics of Black Latin vs. White Latin, Island Latin vs. South American Latin, Naturalized Latin vs. Immigrant Latin, English Speaking Only Latin vs. Spanish Speaking Only Latin, Latino Women’s Rights vs. Housewife Latin and other compounded real issues that can be exploited, the seeds political dissension will grow. Blacks know this GAME and are in the pinnacle of turning the tables possibly with this current election.

The 1970’s into the 80’s were the dissension years for Black Americans, the era where the benefits of the Post-Civil Rights Movement kicked in bring many out of their communities to never truly return. Sad to say, Affirmative Action was part of the catalyst that divided Black Americans from ethnic solidarity into Class divisions. Yet in the roll of a Barak Obama, Black can see a possible shift back to the middle where both side of the class struggle can focus on a common goal for empowerment.

Now full circle, about 40 years later, we have a Southern White man from poor roots who rises to prestige as a trail attorney and Vice President hopeful, a White woman from humble beginnings and dedicated to service rises to political prominence and married to one of the best Presidents of a generation, and then there is a Black man, bi-racial Multiculturalists Liberal who was abandoned as a child, experimented with all sorts of social vices and became Ivy League educated, the spokes person of the Democratic Party and all are applying for the job of President of the United States of America. Not bad for Civil Rights. Equally, not bad for the contributions of Affirmative Action. Without out it, you wouldn’t have a Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama and you might as well include Collin Powell, Condi Rice, Ray Nagin, JC Watts, Joseph C. Phillips (that's the guy from the Cosby Show that married America's Girlfriend, Denise Huxtable) Alan Keyes (remember him, he was on the Republican ticket for President but got diss’ed a third time by said Party), Clarence Thomas, Oprah Winfrey and any other successful Black and or Woman within the age group of 40 to early 60’s.

This sudden visual CHANGE in the staunchly WHITE MALE DOMINATED PRESIDENTAL CLUB is at the very root of many peoples' frustration, mostly the HAVES and the HAVE MORES. As the stakes get higher and the prizes more prominent yet harder to acquire, the craziness in people show on their sleeves in vibrant colors. Take Rosanne Barr for instance; look at what this crazy B-Word wrote on here blog:

Barak Obama is an empty suit selling "hope" in lieu of Truth. Oprah Winfrey helped to elect Arnold Swartzenegger. I have no doubt that she voted her purse by doing this, as she is a large land owner in California, and that ilk fears Dems because they do not want to pay their "fair share" of Cali tax. Oprah has given us Swartzenegger and Dr. Phil. If that was not offensive enough to decent thinking people, now she brings us Obama. He has no ideas, no plan and nothing to add other than the cynical pacification of the masses with bedtime stories about hope, while calling Unions "special interest groups" that need to be done away with.

Obama votes with Bush constantly funding this terrible endless war.

Oprah, you play the race card and the gender card too.

You (Oprah) are a closeted republican and chose Barak Obama because you do not like other women who actually stand for something to working American Women besides glamour, angels, hollywood and dieting!

When Americans find out that Obama backs right wing corporate racist anti worker bullshit, they will not vote for him, and the victory will go to the most racist right wing republican ever.... McCain, who is a fascist!

The real FEAR of Obama is that he can bring and or transform the nation to a more fundamentally acceptable liberalism that both Republican (conservatives) Democrat (liberalist) can live with. The only other person capable of doing that was Ronald Reagan whom was the standard of Republicanism since the 1980’s. Although not the popular person by either side, he had a vision that effected every area of the nation and the world and had stayed that way even through the Bill Clinton years of the 1990’s


Sad to say, after a few choice emails and a possible call from the Goddess O, (cause you know how Oprah loves making her PHONE CALLS) Rosie soon apologized and recanted he opinions on her Blog an apologized.

Hear me when I say this.


Thing is, as much as the BIG FAT ROSE ranted, she spoke a truth that a lot of Americans feel. Talking to BLACKS on the side (for fear of getting BEAT DOWN by other BLACKS) they believe as Rosie does. I even recall conversations with people in Chicago who CAN’T STAND Oprah who believe that anything O touches is a strategic movement towards making Mo’ Money. Only reason why she ain't touch the Southside. As a capitalist there is nothing wrong with that, as a humanist, its food for thought. I may not like Rosie (I did like her sit-com) but I won’t deny her RIGHT to speak her truth and it is FOOD FOR THOUGHT regardless if you like it or not.

Okay, Shazza, here I go. First, I saw the picture and read and read and read. I was about to think you were not ever gonna make a connection with the blonde bitch Rosie (she said it, not me). I'm glad you posted it in Red, because I was seeing red as a read it. But everyone is entitled to their opinion, so I ain't mad at you. I do agree with you on two count. First, there are a hell of a lot of people out there who share the same point of view as the one Rosie wrote about ih her blog. Second, I don't care who calls you, you don;t change your blog for them. Fuck that! I wrote what I thought and I thought what I wrote. Bite me, Oprah, now give me a dollar. LOL.

Initially, when I heard Rosie's rant I was caught between checking it out (cause I hate sound bites and sensationalism - its a manipulation thing) and just dismissing it. Then I saw part of it posted on TV I had to get the whole story.

Once I read it online I was like Awww Shyt ... they gonna start having Non-Politicians; Celebs, Big Mouth Nobodies like Janice Dickerson to Anne Colter do the RACE/GENER racial snubs. This way the media has something they can actually write about since they can't get anything right the other way.

Its a GAME we have to weather through.

yeah, i agree, Freedom of Speech is one of the things i hold onto...forsake of letting that one thing go, what's next. Don't like what she said, but she has the right to say it...just goes to show you how the wheels of power work...don't get it twisted Oprah is a Wheel of Power, Fo-sho! She might not be all she is intended to be...but what she has accomplish and can accomplish is magnificent. Rosie is a has-been nobody, trying to be somebody again, well at least in the public eye...trailor trash from the start, now she talking politics...i digress.
