I know you're right, Yvette.
But one thing I'm NOT ENJOYING---are the
constant "murmurings" that Obama is
really gay and that Michelle looks
like a Man.
I ONLY hear this when I'm around my
White Friends (and my friends here
in Cali are "rich" and they're
t.v. producers, writers, agents,
reporters and local politicians).
During an unguarded moment...
I even witnessed a GAY WHITE MALE "friend"
of mine (someone I've defended in
the past, Yvette) make the comment
that---"a lot of the darker skinned
black women have a masculine look."
I don't find that true or funny,
but I do KNOW from being around
so many White people when they're
genuinely and innocently being "humorous"
and when they're giving "CODE" for
their racial beliefs.
That NEW YORKER cover was satire, yes
---but there was also a lot of racist
shit that was INTENDED, MEANT and
DELIBERATE by that staff when they
I don't care what anybody says.
And aside from the comments about
Michelle looking like a man (which
they always use to put down her
height--a particular bone for me),
I'm really sick of the CHIMP photos
showing Obama and Michelle as monkeys.
I don't find it amusing AT ALL
and I'm seeing the shit everywhere.
A goddamned Bi-racial child in my
valley (we're still talking CALI)
had a t-shirt with O & M depicted
as Chimps and thought it was "cute"
because "it doesn't mean anything
and that's what they really look
