And the African Americans Strike Again

April 30, 2009

This is a very shameful story. Well, shameful to a point, as I am not African American as I like to remind my readers. I am not American in general, so I can’t be African American. Apart from that obvious difference would be that of socialization. This abounding fast food culture of the United States is not something that is as prevelant here in the Caribbean as it is there. Popeyes Chicken isn’t even available in Barbados, which is fine by me, I think it’s average at best.

Making things worse are the reactions to the closure, as though a crime against humanity was committed, talking about they were waiting for this day, a special on chicken. MY GOODNESS!

Stereotypes 1 – Civil Rights Pioneers 0

December 5, 2007

Sigh.

Have you ever taken a look around at “Black Society”? I mean taken a REAL good look. Open your eyes and feast on the bounty that is black pride!
Remember those civil rights pioneers like Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and so forth and so forth (skipping names of less internationally recognizable people). They must be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO proud of how far black people have come.

Take 50 Cent for example, been shot a bazillion times, degrades women in his music and real life and advocates illicit drug usage. How about OJ Simpson, him and his famous “If I Did it” Novel (personally I never pegged him as much of a reader far less a writer).

Even the every day black person who blames ‘the man’ for the fact that they can’t get a job (though the spent most of their school life high, drunk, absent, pregnant or some wonderful combination of the aforementioned). Where is this coming from you may ask and I don’t blame you.

Watch with PRIDE this empowering display of black power, equal rights and respect for self and women.
