I am hearing of Muslims being insulted and attacked following what happened in Paris. Come on people! Educate yourself! Not all Muslims are extremists. Not all extremists are Muslims either. If we are going to attack a particular religion because of the sins of some radical idiots, then we are plain idiots!
Happy Black Friday to all my homies. Keep it real dog. This is our day. What? That’s not what it means? Then wtf! Why you be calling it ‘Black Friday’ then? What’s wrong with ‘White Friday’? S’not like it was already taken. So you sayin this brother still has to show up for work? Man this sucks! I’m out!
Black Friday my black ass!
I love the uneasiness and awkwardness that follows when someone inadvertently say something to someone of another race or even sexual orientation that could be construed as racist. It shows how much we walk on egg shells and can’t even be ourselves for fear of hurting someone.
A while ago, at an old workplace, I was goofing around with a white co-worker and trying to grab something of his. He was an older fella and he jokingly told me to, ‘get my cotton-picking hands off of his stuff.’ Well as soon as the last word was out of his mouth, he paled. I was black! Blacks and cotton have some bad history. Instead of going about his business, the man apologized profusely, thus compounding an issue that wasn’t even there in the first place.
I am sorry but I find it funny. It’s so much fun being black. More about that later.
I am actually curious as to what Donald Sterling’s next move is going to be. Would he make one of those generic apologies or donate a huge some of money to the NAACP? Or maybe just stay quiet and hope it goes away with time? What are you gonna do, Donald?
