The second coming of Jeremiah Wright [Karl]

Brack Obama’s longtime spiritual adviser, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, brought his public rehab campaign to a dinner held by the Detroit chapter of the NAACP Sunday night:

“I am not one of the most divisive” black spiritual leaders, he said. “I’m one of the most descriptive.”

Actually, Wright is a floor wax and a dessert topping.

He opened with a jab at the “corporate-owned media,” though he gave a shout out to CNN’s Roland Martin and Soledad O’Brien.  Granted, CNN used to be owned by a crazy old man named Ted, but it is now owned by Time-Warner, which is (iirc) a corporation.  Martin is a “life-long friend” of Wright, though Martin apparently never disclosed this in the fawning coverage he has given Wright on CNN.

But let’s get to the descriptive part of the speech:

He acted out the differences between marching bands at predominantly black and predominantly white colleges. “Africans have a different meter, and Africans have a different tonality,” he said. Europeans have seven tones, Africans have five. White people clap differently than black people. “Africans and African-Americans are right-brained, subject-oriented in their learning style,” he said. “They have a different way of learning.” And so on.

After jokingly mocking the Boston accents of former Presidents John F. and Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., Wright said, “nobody says to a Kennedy, ‘You speak bad English,’ only to a black child was that said.”

That would come as a surprise to Vaughn Meader, if he was still alive.  More generally, the notion that white pols are never accused of poor language skills might come as a surprise to Pres. Bush. 

Even more generally, if a Pat Robertson or a John Hagee gave a widely-publicized speech opining on the relative rhythm and musicality of blacks and whites, or talking about how blacks learn with their right brain, there would be a firestorm of criticism and the establishment media would immediately question John McCain as to whether he would denounce the remarks, etc.  Obama agreed yesterday that his relationship with Wright was a “legitimate political issue,” and Wright has been closer to Obama than Hagee has ever been to McCain, but I would not hold my breath waiting for a media feeding frenzy.

Wright also declared:

“I am not running for the Oval Office. I’ve been running for Jesus a long, long time, and I’m not tired yet.”

The “running for Jesus” would explain why Wright is claiming he has been subjected to a “public crucifixion.”  I had no idea Obama had competition for the role of Messiah. So far, the press does not seem to be scrutininzing Wright’s second coming.

Update: Allah-lanche!

  1. The “running for Jesus” would explain why Wright is claiming he has been subjected to a “public crucifixion.” I had no idea Obama had competition for the role of Messiah. So far, the press does not seem to be scrutininzing Wright’s second coming.

    Running puns give me runny runs.

  2. Karl – You sir, are a racist, and I denounce you. Having said that, as always, good stuff. Now, could someone teach me how to clap?

  3. JD, in which side of your brain would you like to learn? We have a special available on RACIST LEFT-BRAIN clapping.

  4. This latest is a further demonstration of Wright’s biggest flaw.

    No, not racism or Marxism or religious intolerance or serial America hating. Now that he has seized the opportunity to present himself on the national stage he joins the likes of Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton in demostrating their over arching concern.

    Feeding their own egos.

    One wonders how Obama is feeling these days when, spying the distant panorama of a political landscape free of Wright and his association, his beloved mentor is working hard to throw him under the bus by initiating a traveling circus designed to rehabilitate his own image rather than “stick to his knitting” by giving sermons to the oppressed choir.

    Instead the poor senator from illinios is treated to a four part harmony of continued sound bites that further erode his campaign’s ability to reframe the controversy as “taken out of context” and “I’ve already answered those questions at length.” Having demonstrated his control freakish nature when it comes to inconvenient questions and squishy policy pronouncements and having just refused Hillary’s demand for a Texas Cage Match style debate one wonders if he is becoming mired in the political arugula of inconvenient and unmolded inquiries.

    It couldn’t happen to a more hopefull, unified fraud.

  5. African speaks to continent of origin… not color. Africa is a continent, not a color. And African Americans are not African… no more than I am Irish.

    Also, I thought the mocking tone (impersonation of “white pastors”) was disgusting.

  6. I am a non-African-American African-American

  7. BTW Reggie White got widely panned for this POV.

  8. Also, I thought the mocking tone (impersonation of “white pastors”) was disgusting.

    Despicable! Sacred are the white lambs of Jesus!

  9. Trevor,

    If you ever overshadow one of my anniversaries again, I’ll stab you with an Ethiopian.

  10. I’d say it’s safe to say that Wright is a bona fide racist, but that would miss the real point. Don’t send your time thinking gangsta, when you should be thinking huckster.

    You have to realize that pastors of black churches often think of their congregants in a niggardly or “less than” terms, its part of the huckster role that demands “no noise” or “paper-only” in the basket. Meanwhile in order to maintain the “cash cow,” they preach a doctrine that keeps blacks from moving to a better place, with ideas like the anti-middleclassness until he eventually retires to a 10,000 sq ft mansion in a gated community of more than 90% white neighbors. His form of racism is a tool of a black pastor to keep blacks down using whites to triangulate while he plays a Moses who has no intention of getting them to the promise land.

    When you finally realize that Obama’s 20 year apprentice in hucksterism at Trinity Church was to gain “street cred” and train his skills at manipulating, starting with the black community, it becomes clear why he spend 20 years there becoming a modern day carpetbagger. There only real major difference between Wright and Obama is that Wright thinks within the confines of a pastor, while Obama is trying to expand to a whole country.

  11. Again I’m taken by the delicious irony of the repeated “taken out of context” meme when defending Wright while he plows the media field providing more and more context.

    It makes me giggle uncontrollably.

  12. Anyone willing to admit Rev. Wright’s introduction was a bonafide boomer? That dude could boom.

  13. wow he just said hermantics..got it right on the second try, hehe

  14. That dude could boom.

    Remember when he introduced Jackson Heights’ own Randy Watson (with Sexual Chocolate)? He can sure warm up a room.

  15. wow…an attack on wright is both an attack on obama and an attack on TUCC and all black churches….and by extrapolation on all blacks.
    this guy is certifiable.
    dementia praecox, paranoid schizophrenia with delusions of grandeur.

  16. Neo: That is a reasonable analysis which, combined with my “ego” comment reflects the broad brush self promoting vision of Wright and his ilk.

    The “middleclassness” portion of the the TUCC’s mission statement is a classic ass covering. the statement promotes “middleincomeness” as a means to an end, mainly economic power. By eschewing “middleclassness” and not participating in the broad swath of non racially identified daily life (and, thus, run the risk of forgetting your “oppressed” brothers and sisters,) Wright and his ilk have the rhetorical cover to build million dollar mansions and live in 90% white communities while still retaining the authentic “voice of the oppressed” in their most radical statements.

    It’s a sickly genius in it’s juxtaposition of personal financial success and identity politics writ large.

  17. BJ – Every single one of the Obamaniacs claims that the Wright “snippets” were taken out of context, yet not one of them has ever even attempted to show that the greater context was anything better than the snippet.

  18. still….im not voting for wright for prez..im voting for Obama.
    ;)

    i bet O slept thru these sermons.
    not only are they crazy, they are booooorrrrrrring.

  19. nishi- Try narcissism cuz I don’t see much in the way of split personalities.

    He is what he is.

  20. JD
    Every single one of the Obamaniacs claims that the Wright “snippets” were taken out of context

    untrue.
    mostly we think wright is batshit crazy and that O is not crazy, so how could he adopt wright’s mindset?
    you are arguing teh crazy is catching like a virus.

  21. JD: I’ve got a post in mind to explain that sort of reasoning from a psychological perspective. Stay tuned.

  22. the rightside argument is going to this guy’s church means you “caught teh crazy.”
    not relevant to non-church goers.

  23. BTW Reggie White got widely panned for this POV

    The article linked says:

    Blacks were enslaved largely because their skin color made them stand out in White society, White stated.

    White is hardly alone in this notion. Some very smart people are still saying that, and (as far as I’m aware) catching zero flack for it. It’s fairly uncontroversial that black Africans became the slave stock of choice in some part because they couldn’t exactly fade away into the general population.

  24. who are all the claquers?

    man, this is boring.
    ima go to work…i’ll prolly write my Captain Stupid Strikes Again post at lunch if i have time.
    enjoy your wright-a-thon….wow…i just thot….the media is just giving this guy a broader pulpit.
    is that a good thing?

  25. dementia praecox, paranoid schizophrenia with delusions of grandeur.

    This has to be nishitiot’s most revealing self assessment to date.

  26. c’mon…..i know you guys secretly agree wid me….except for allahpundit, Hotair is strictly left side of the Bell Curve.
    ;)
    Captain Stupid Says the Bell Curve is psuedoscience.
    rawr!

  27. i’ll prolly write my Captain Stupid Strikes Again post at lunch if i have time.

    Copy and paste should not take that long. You have only about 4-5 different comments, on the same topics.

  28. mostly we think wright is batshit crazy and that O is not crazy, so how could he adopt wright’s mindset?
    you are arguing teh crazy is catching like a virus.

    Nishi, you are missing the point. In fact, you have laid out a much more effective argument (one I vehemntly disagree with) in saying that you are not voting for Wright and dismiss him as a fringe crazee.

    Do I have to attempt to link to comment after comment of Obama supporters playing the “taken out of context” card? Their mindset is different than yours. They are concerned that everything associated with the Obamessiah be righteous and true, thus they are unable to take the very same step that Obama took and distance themselves from Wright’s statements. These minions are so enraptured with the hopey changey that nothing can deter them from the rightness of the candidate. Therefore, they continue to make an argument designed to explain the “wrongness” in quoting Wright while their own candidate has distanced himself and wants the whole thing to just go away!

    This level of synchophantic devotion is on the order of a delusion or obsession. They fail to see how this line of defense continues to hurt their candidate.

    Yes, it’s true, nishi. You and I will agree on very little but if you are really going to do Obama some good, dismissing Wright as a nut is the way to go. That forces us to argue about the connections and the relationship rather than just posting the context of Wright’s remarks which only makes them look worse and keeps the entire kerfuffle in the public eye.

    I still think you are wrong about this but can at least acknowledge a better defense than the desperate context apologizors.

  29. SOMEBODY TACKLE THE REVEREND!!!!

  30. Do I have to attempt to link to comment after comment of Obama supporters playing the “taken out of context” card?

    To what purpose? To convince the nishtoon?

    After you do that, let’s you and me work on convincing the Great Wall of China to defect to Canada.

  31. the rightside argument is going to this guy’s church means you “caught teh crazy.”
    not relevant to non-church goers.

    No, it’s that for 20 years Obama sat in this guy’s church, listening to this crap. Twenty years implies approval, acceptance, agreement.

    The more Wright is exposed for who he is, for what he believes, the more people should ask, “WTF was Obama doing funding this guy to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars? WTF was he doing attending this church?!”

    I find it ironic that the left, so terrified of religious zealots they consider even the moderately faithful to be anathema, have decided to be blind to a truly dangerous demagogue cloaking himself in religious trappings. Is it the color of his skin, or the politics of his preaching?

  32. It would probably would have been better, if Mr. Wright had retired, in a way that he was really retired, and not keep putting his foot in his mouth.

    One wonders if he is getting senile.

  33. Charles N.: One word: EGOMANIAC

    Do I have to attempt to link to comment after comment of Obama supporters playing the “taken out of context” card?

    To what purpose? To convince the nishtoon?

    After you do that, let’s you and me work on convincing the Great Wall of China to defect to Canada.

    *sigh* I know, I know…

    However if the Great Wall of China were to defect to, say, the Mexican border…

  34. It’s not mere self gratification for Wright. Having now regained his own space through the Moyers interview Wright is going to capitalize on his fifteen minutes of fame.

    How else to explain his crucifiction line? An ostensible Christian pastor comparing his individual trials and tribulations (ones he appears to have survived intact) to those of his saviour? A man who, you know, actually died in the process. That line wasn’t meant to be descriptive, much less provocative; it was entirely inflammatory and meant to further drive a wedge between BLT based faith and the mainstream of Christianity.

    Wright wants to remain ‘oppressed,’ he wants to perpetuate identity politics, and I often wonder if he secretly wants Obama to go down in flames; if only to serve as an object lesson to his target audience that the black man should never think himself part of the society as a whole.

  35. Oh hell, HTML has not been good to me lately.

    crucifiction, italicized.

    everthing else, not.

  36. Oh well, looks like Rev. Jeremiah Wright hates Obama.

    Karl, Rev. Wright is now on your team, player.

  37. This whole Wright kerfuff has been like a big box of Lucky Charms. You know, a passable cereal grain base, with the hearts, moons, stars and clovers adding a deliciously sugary bounce to virtually every spoonful. But then the Rev. retired and the box is empty. But wait, there’s a prize at the bottom! A LITTLE MAGNIFYING GLASS!!! Let’s go out and burn bugs!

    Poor little floppy-eared bugs. I wonder if they scream.

  38. Wright doesn’t hate Obama, thor. He just loves hisself more than the new messiah.

  39. Wright damns us, Thor. Why on earth would he want Obama to become the embodiment of Amerikkka by being elected POTUS?

  40. what the fuck is all this BS about?
    Clapping habits, right/left brain, manner of speach?.
    I thought he is a priest, a shrill one.
    Not the anthropologist, biologists or whatever failed scientist.
    Was Watson crucified recently for saying something similar about intellectual differences in races?

  41. I clap like I dance. And jump. I have no comment about my tones.

  42. manner of speach

    not to mention, of riting.

  43. I went to a dance in college and ended up with the clap.

    I can two-handed-dunk, though.

    Yep, that’s my take as well. I think Obama’s going to have to break the glass and take out the emergency pimp hand on Wright. He’s like Carrie’s tampon, just smear, smear, smear and more smearing.

  46. Jimmy the Greek has got to be beating his head against a wall right about now.

  47. I listened to the Rev. Wright’s speech at the NAACP meeting and at the press club meeting. If he hadn’t spoke at these events, the media and those running against Obama would have continued to run those sound-bites and offer their opinions as facts regarding the persona and message of Rev. Wright. I was very impressed with his intellect and the content of his message. Those opposed to Obama will continue to express their opinion and that is fine. But… it is their opinion and should not be expressed as the facts. Let the voters listen to the entire messages and form their opinions!!!

  48. Wow, it’s like they don’t even bother to read the blog before they spew all over it. Yep, making sure they hear the entire message before forming an opinion.

  49. Thank you, ‘Susan Faloon.’

  50. I listened to the Rev. Wright’s speech at the NAACP meeting and at the press club meeting.

    I was very impressed with his intellect and the content of his message.

    Someone needs Jesus to spit in the dirt and rub a little mud in her eyes.

  51. That’s biblical.

  52. If the media had concentrated on Obama’s religion as much as it did on Romneys….Obama would not be in the lead.
    PUT OBAMA NEXT TO COLIN POWELL…..who would win?

    If Obama is all about change, then why is Chicago eat up with gang members and murder?
    If Obama cannot change that……..then how is Obama going to change the ENTIRE COUNTRY?

    Rev Wright should take his $1,000,000.00 white suburb home and sell it…..then go to Africa and help those that truly do need help. Instead, he and Michelle
    Obama would rather tear down America and give it to Africa.

  53. All right, who left the side door open at the asylum?

    Al!

  54. You guys are incredible! This is my first visit, and I must say, his speech wasn’t for you…it was for the members of the NAACP and their guests…not you!
    Everytime a black man opens his mouth, if it is seen as “militant” (ie dr. king, malcolm x, marcus garvey, david t walker, nat turner, etc.) he is a threat…but let them be singin about t & a all day long, and they free repeated airplay, even grammy awards. i thought i was sick of all you talking fools, and that barack would lose because of you and your ilk, but truth is i don’t give a damn if he wins or loses, as long as i get to listen to brother wright speak truth to power, head bloody but unbowed from all you silly non-intellectuals (intellectuals+thinkers, for the ill-informed) acting like you got something on this true american patriot, though he is descended from the africans who built this country without getting paid…try working for your bosses for free for a couple of years. Obama may lose, but wright needs to keep on talking, maybe he can do for negroes worldwide what he so valiantly did in chicago: took those who would listen and turned them into black men and women, unashamedly and unapologetically…kiss of and stick with those black folks who hate themselves, me and my white, asian, and latino brothers and sisters are going to hold hands and walk on the beach…
    peace

  55. I’m voluntary dude. I go out the front door.

  56. It’s quite satisfying to have written this at #29:

    They are concerned that everything associated with the Obamessiah be righteous and true, thus they are unable to take the very same step that Obama took and distance themselves from Wright’s statements. These minions are so enraptured with the hopey changey that nothing can deter them from the rightness of the candidate.

    Aaaaaand then have Susan Faloon come along and write this:

    If he hadn’t spoke at these events, the media and those running against Obama would have continued to run those sound-bites and offer their opinions as facts regarding the persona and message of Rev. Wright. I was very impressed with his intellect and the content of his message

    Quod Erat Demonstratum

  57. Everytime a black man opens his mouth, if it is seen as “militant”

    Untrue. I don’t see Obama as overtly militant. I could reel off a long list of black men (and women; let’s not forget about the womyn) that I don’t see as militant, but it’s probably quicker just to point out the few that I do see as militant. Or, more to the point, reflexively or even deliberately race-baiting.

    But I guess that whether he’s black enough to be taken as militant is a matter that’s under some dispute.

  58. And the words win in a blowout over the periods, 282 to 3.

  59. To me, Wrights comments about America deserving what it got on 9/11 are just as offensive as if someone made a claim that black folks deserved getting lynched.

    Folks would be raising holy heck if a white candidate had chosen such a man as a close friend and mentor – for good reason!

    I find it impossible to believe that Obama was unaware of his views on such matters since Wright appears to express these kinds of corrosive ideas often and this post demonstrates.

  60. I heard Rev. Wright’s speech (& follow up question & answer period) at the Nat’l Press Club in Wash. D.C. today (4/28/08)on live TV. This is an arrogant, combative, angry black man who showed nothing but contempt for America. During this speech, Wright spoke of the differences between blacks & whites.. It reminded me of the Natzi propaganda films about the differences between Jews & non Jews. Wright’s speech was one of the most racist, devisive things I’ve ever heard. He had a lame excuse or sleazy evasion for everything he’s been questioned about. He showed nothing but admiration for the avowed racist & anti- semite hate-monger Louis Farrakhan.
    The fact that Obama, even after all these public revelations, continues to maintain his membership in that church & keep Rev Wright as his family’s Pastor disqualifies Obama from ever having my vote for any public office. As for Wright, Yea, We had slavery in parts of this country. It stopped what? 120 years ago. Stop pretending it happened to you & Get Over It!

  61. Susan- what impressed you about his message?

  62. his speech wasn’t for you…it was for the members of the NAACP and their guests…not you!

    All right, which one of you idiots at the NAACP invited the media fer cryin’ out loud? Didn’t you get the memo about when inviting the media expect them to report what’s said?

    Things are so much clearer and more seperatty behind closed doors.

    Buncha idiots.

    WTF are you talking about? I take umbrage at the idea that I listen to black men singing about t&a.

  69. But, you know … in light of Wright’s remarks, perhaps it’s because I don’t understand the way they clap … and their tonality.

  70. You guys are incredible! This is my first visit, and I must say, his speech wasn’t for you…it was for the members of the NAACP and their guests…not you!

    So his declaration that there are geneticly-based differences in how the various “races” think is considered acceptable — applaudable — material at the NAACP?

    Huh.

  71. Yup Carin. Alas, I have only one tone in my head and it’s a busy signal.

    He was speaking, black truth to power. It has it’s own tonality, you know.

  74. try working for your bosses for free for a couple of years.

    Tax Freedom Day was April 23 this year. If you’ve worked for 20 years, that means you’ve worked 80+ months for the sole purpose of paying your taxes. That’s more than a couple of years (for the ill-informed). There’s math in there candace. Be careful.

  75. Comment by William in FL on 4/28 @ 9:30 am #

    This is an arrogant, combative, angry black man who showed nothing but contempt for America. During this speech, Wright spoke of the differences between blacks & whites.. It reminded me of the Natzi propaganda films about the differences between Jews & non Jews.

    Ah, and entering stage door three is a weeping non-typical white person whose sense of indignation runs so deep that he invokes propagandizing Nazis.

    A little Rev. Wright and you’re feeling the terror of the Jews in Auschwitz, are ya?

    Go, just go. I will only terrorize you further.

  76. I used to joke that the Democrats (and the left in general) had merely swapped one color for the other in which they discriminated against.

    But catching the outright admiration people are showing for Wright’s bigotry, I have to rethink whether it’s a joke.

  77. You guys are incredible! This is my first visit, and I must say, his speech wasn’t for you…it was for the members of the NAACP and their guests…not you!

    Wright was indeed speaking to the NAACP in Detroit, a city that has been hurt more than any other by just the kind of thinking Wright was espousing. I am concerned about the people of Detroit and the State of Michigan in general. Is it not my business?

  78. He was speaking, black truth to power. It has it’s own tonality, you know.

    I’d applaud, but I just know I’d get it wrong. I’m so ashamed

  79. I wonder if it’s fully dawned upon Obama yet that after all of his self-aggrandizing machinations he has in effect managed to make himself only Wright’s bitch: right now, imo, Wright seems to be in full control – with his Flock even progressively gathering strength – either because Obama is truely in Wright’s/BLT’s thrall or because Wright “knows things”.

    But, then again, would any such groupist, “Progressive” tool even care? And especially one with an all-consuming aspiration of at least being seen as the Overdog?

    “Progressive” Losers.

  80. Next thing you know, the good Rev. Wright will be holding classes for White people in how to speak jive.
    Although according to the Rev., we are all different, hey, at least we’ll be able to understand each other right?

  81. Why does Wright hate Obama?

  82. Jeebus Kristo, candice!

    We listen to all here, but I am not sure if you are smart enough to own a computer.

    “Truth to power”? Un-fucking-believeable that anyone would have the hair to say that here. Or anywhere else, for that matter.

    Sorry, but it’s a dead giveaway that there is no brain function in the utterer (Is that a word?). It’s third grade bullshit, my dear.

    Truth to power? Go home and look in the mirror. Of all the leftist platitudes, that is THE ABSOLUTELY STUPIDEST ONE, and gives away your mental prowess unequivocally.!

    “Truth to power” is the signature of a public school graduate.

    Sorry, but, please, give us a break. The Huffington Post or Daily Kos is where you need to be. That’s where all cattle go to express their opinion before they are led to slaughter.

    Jeezus! “Truth to power”?

    I am actually giggling, which I know is not very manly for a white supremicist…

  83. Jive Lady: Oh stewardess! I speak jive.

  84. So how can a ‘lifelong friend’ of Rev. Wright, be considered an objective observer of same. Anyone get the vibe from “Clear & Present Danger” where Ryan counsels President Bennett to say that his slain former business partner
    and moneylaunderer for drug dealer, was
    a ‘close. lifelong’ friend to block press investigation of the connection.

  85. Candice, pay no attention to the Lost Dog. I’m terribly interesting in your POV. I think Wright could do much for the negrosaround the world; specifically in Africa. Perhaps if he sold his million dollar house and went on a mission? TRUTH TO POWER!

  86. Rev. Wright apparently missed the “humility” parts of Christ’s ministry.

  87. 57: It’s a black thing, right?
    Ill give you some credit, it was 100% red-meat for that audience; no dogwhistles for the rev. Which says precisely all you need to know about that audience, and by default, the Dem. party, since without the black vote, the dems are not a national political party.

    If Obama wants to win the nomination, he’ll let the good rev. continue to do his thing:100% victim, forward looking outrage, absolutely no acknowledgment its whitey’s fault, blame the media–all the tropes.

    If he wants to be POTUS, He’ll shut Wright’s ass up on the hop.

  88. Hey Bros, let’s have a vote on whether “Candace” is black enough to have any cred. here.

  89. “absolutely no acknowledgment its whitey’s fault”

    mis-type: “absolutely no acknowledgement of his role, its all whitey’s fault…”

  90. Man, I just can’t stop myself:

    long as i get to listen to brother wright speak truth to power, head bloody but unbowed from all you silly non-intellectuals (intellectuals+thinkers, for the ill-informed) acting like you got something on this true american patriot, though he is descended from the africans who built this country without getting paid…try working for your bosses for free for a couple of years.

    Honestly, Candace is a gift that just keeps on giving.

  91. I love the complete lack of self awareness of the drive-by trolls. Not that the ones that hang around are any better …

  92. At least she referred to us as an ‘your ilk’ and not ‘your kind.’ So, at least she’s got her signifiers down.

  93. After viewing the Wright promo’s, one of my daughters keeps asking me, “When is someone finally going to tell Wright that he’s white?”

  94. Yup. The more I see, the more I am convinced that I am not the insane one.

    But, unfortunately, just the fact that there is so much horse shit flying around makes me fearful for our future. How did “we” get to be so stupid?

    But then again, doesn’t the constitution guarantee absolute stupidity? A fatal flaw, I think.

  95. At least she referred to us as an ‘your ilk’

    That’s generally used in Scotland to signify one’s family, e.g. MacGregor of MacGregor, the clan chieftan, might be referred to as “MacGregor of that ilk”.

    Using the word in a pejorative sense, as candace did, is racist against Scots.

  96. is racist against Scots.

    We long-suffering Scots are used to it. ;)

  97. Lost Dog, what we have here is a collision of ideals with the real world. Specifically, the ideal of egalitarianism.

    The Founders did not believe in absolute equality. They believed that, given an equal basis upon which to compete, every person’s actual abilities would emerge and become the basis for their status. Forty years ago, Martin Luther King and others convinced me and my fellows that we had violated the “equal basis” condition. We were not giving black people an equal chance, and we agreed that this was a bad thing which should be changed.

    We did not agree to “our turn in the barrel”, and won’t accept it. Farnham’s Freehold won’t happen.

    The underlying, bitter fact which generates all this commotion is black people do not achieve. If you read that as “can not”, fuck you. The simple existence of people like Lisa disprove its, even if I were to make the assertion — which I do not, and I will be happy to help pin “racist” on anyone who does. But by and large black people do not achieve at the same rates as whites or asians, and until and unless we can come to an agreed-upon explanation as to why that is, there will continue to be conflict.

  98. oh this is great! Go study history, then come back and talk to me, I AM OUT! Who cares about Reverend Wright and what he says? Can he cause you to lose YOUR job? Is he taking food out of your mouths? Hell No!! So, why are you so concerned with him, because he is Obama’s friend? So what!! Let these candidates have their friends, like normal people! Friends they love, but don’t always agree with. Who are you to dictate what people say and think? Did you all even watch the Bill Moyers interview? This man assisted in an operation on LBJ, for crying out loud…served in the Marines and the Navy, while other folks were trying to melt into the American countryside. now for the children:

    We are different, and that does’t make anyone deficient. When you clap, white folks, for years we have ridiculed you for being off beat. Still do. Wright put it in perspective, you are not off beat, you are clapping to the wired beat in your genes.

    Been teaching for years. due to his speech, I am going to try something different in preparing them for these BIASED ASS state tests coming up next week. Yeah I said it.

    All the little humor and sarcasm is cute, but none of you appear to be students of history, or for that matter, students of anything. His point was that there are sociological, ethnomusicogical, etc. reasons that make us all different; however, none of it makes one race or another deficient. Anyone can learn, even after being brainwashed that:

    1. All you are and ever will be is a second class citizen, one step up from slavery. We can always rape your women, we have de-masculated (not emasculated) your men, and they are more concerned with the material goods you will never possess, no matter how many rap songs you sing, or how many baskets you shoot

    2. Speaking of baskets, look you negroes, play sports for us, we will use you to the best of of your ability, make billions off of you, then not give you the help to earn a useful degree. IOW “SCrew YOU ya big black dummies!” We will make money for the colleges, the networks, the t-shirt companies, the sportscasters, the concession stands…but not for your poor black mama trying to figure out how rent will get this month!” GO TEAM!!

    3. And you dark skinned folks…please lighten up…don’t you know the european standard of beauty is what’s up? and little girls, don’t cry because there are no black disney princesses…mamas, don’t be pissed because at christmas, you can only find white dolls…haven’t you learned anything yet? you ain’t shit…you don’t count, a black doll for boys? A black gi joe? get a grip and get with the program…who cares about dr. kenneth clark and his findings…just another militant unhappy negro.

    anyway, i could go on, but i’m hungry.

    you who don’t understand will probably never understand, so who the f*** cares!! lol
    silly little people

  99. We are different, and that does’t make anyone deficient. When you clap, white folks, for years we have ridiculed you for being off beat. Still do. Wright put it in perspective, you are not off beat, you are clapping to the wired beat in your genes.

    Ok, I’m not done yet, but I’m already LOVING this rant.

  100. Just WOW on this Hate filled Rev Wright as well as the troop of believers that show up on blogs sounding like enemies of this country…something bad is coming this way, the NOI/BL/Domestic/Muslim Terrorist/Chicago Mob connections will doom BHO and likely to destroy the Demtard Party and maybe the Repubs also….we better be prepared for some serious bad mojo!

  101. i will visit when i get a chance!! love you all

  102. that is a rant for the ages. awesome. museum quality, in everyway imaginable.

  103. But by and large black people do not achieve at the same rates as whites or asians, and until and unless we can come to an agreed-upon explanation as to why that is, there will continue to be conflict.

    And yet we are in the throes of identity politics where even the idea of raising that issue will have you branded “racist” while the Wrights and Sharptons of the world opine, in so many words, that “it’s the fault of the oppressors.” the very same oppressors who are ignoring Asians and many Hispanics.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.

  104. But by and large black people do not achieve at the same rates as whites or asians, and until and unless we can come to an agreed-upon explanation as to why that is, there will continue to be conflict.

    A big fan of the NBA, huh? How niggardly your proffer. No really. It’s dumb detached-white-dope talk. I’ve been to Kenya. Almost all the doctors and lawyers there are black. I never concluded white Kenyans to be underachievers.

  105. what, you wanna come bomb my house now, how about a death threat or two?
    peace and love
    suckers!!

  106. kenyans live in africa, fool, and don’t start talking about that, please. How many kenyans do you know? they frequent my home for dinner, often
    not the nba, ncaa, sucker!

  107. that is a rant for the ages. awesome. museum quality, in everyway imaginable.

    Mcgruder – Could not agree more. It is a deft mixture of make-believe, fantasy, lies, ignorance, and anger. A sight to behold.

  108. We can always rape your women, we have de-masculated (not emasculated) your men…

    What. The. Hell?

  109. Candace, come back! I want some black pride in my oatmeal.

  110. candace – Those voices in your head, you should not listen to them. They are leading you astray.

    what, you wanna come bomb my house now, how about a death threat or two?

    Dare I ask what precipitated this rant?

  111. candace claims to be an educator in this country. Let that marinate.

    Bullshit. Unless those degrees are in black studies.

  113. JD,

    OT and really white: I’ve got a biz/golf meeting at Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth, IN. How is the course?

  114. Candace, are you aware with how the Chinese were treated historically in the West?

    Yet, amazingly, there are no Rev.-Wright-style grievance-mongers that are Chinese. Funny, that. They remember history, but they are happy to be Americans, like everyone else.

  115. what, you wanna come bomb my house now, how about a death threat or two?

    Dare I ask what precipitated this rant?

    The voices in her head?

  116. 2. Speaking of baskets, look you negroes, play sports for us, we will use you to the best of of your ability, make billions off of you, then not give you the help to earn a useful degree. IOW “SCrew YOU ya big black dummies!” We will make money for the colleges, the networks, the t-shirt companies, the sportscasters, the concession stands…but not for your poor black mama trying to figure out how rent will get this month!” GO TEAM!!

    What I really like, is how we TRICK those black kids into playing basketball FOR US by giving them a free education. HA HA HA. Jokes ON YOU sucker!

    Now, with our own kids … we would NEVER fall for that crap and allow our kids to get a scholarship.

    Nah, Kenyans live in America too. Some even have a Obama or two before heading home. I know 2 Kenyans (as in I have their phone numbers-type’a know) in Kenya because they did programming work on some projects I worked on. But I feel as I know Obama, and he’s sort’a Kenyan. So, let’s call it 2 and 1/8 Kenyans total.

  118. Actually, I met a Nigerian and a Liberian when I was in college. The Nigerian woman was particularly interesting, as she attended Detroit public schools for two years after immigrating.

    She was amazed at how little value was placed on education, either by her fellow students or her teachers, in Detroit. In Nigeria, she had been taught to work hard and get educated. She was shocked.

  119. i will visit when i get a chance!! love you all

    Clearly someone whitey’s been keepin’ down.

  120. Thor, I think Candace is calling you OUT on those Kenyans. KENYA IS IN AFRICA, you fool. You can’t pull that shit on her.

  121. You know, before Candace returned, I was gonna go do my P90X.

    I can’t turn away. It’s like a train wreck.

  122. Yeah thor. candace teaches, you listen. And git yo hairy feet off the desk, punk!

  123. alppucino – I think that is Indiana National. If so, helluva course. Play the East Course, it is far more challenging. They have a practice facility that is literally world class. If I remember correct, they had great rates, less than $60 on the weekends, so it is a good value too. But, the good course in Indiana are down by me. Feel free to come join me for a round sometime. Prarie View. Purgatory. Sagamore. The Brickyard. Bear Slide. All within 15-20 minutes of my place.

  124. She was amazed at how little value was placed on education, either by her fellow students or her teachers, in Detroit. In Nigeria, she had been taught to work hard and get educated. She was shocked.

    That’s because Public education is a tool of the OPPRESSOR.

  125. candace,
    I’m sorry, but who one chooses to call friend and mentor does matter. Such associations reveal what kind of evil a person is willing to tolerate and, in this case, even expose his children to.

    Obama may not share Rev. Wright’s views… I will take him at his word on this. However, the fact that he chose to stand by and do nothing, while Rev. Wright preached such hate, makes me wonder what other evil he is willing to overlook.

  126. Reading this thread, I couldn’t help but hear this tune.

  127. Holy shit. I’m supposed to call this chick in a minute and she’s black, and she’s got one of those hard to place accents. Until I thought about it, she’s definitely close to a Kenyan. There’s that chick I knew a long time ago from Benin who had a similar accent!

    Fuck you Candace, I’m up to 2 and 3/8’s Kenyans, and possible more after I talk to that woman.

  128. Thanks JD. You know, when you’re hosting 24 people, it’s gonna be a scramble. I do want to see Purgatory. I’ve got a guy I can lunch with in Indy. I’ll let you know.

  129. candace – With all of those initials, it is easy to see how deep your oppression runs.

  130. Git u sum a dat hot Kenyan coffee thor. You go boyeeee!

  131. alpuccino – Anytime. Just give me about an hour’s notice. I love Purgatory, but it is a relentless challenge. http://www.purgatorygolf.com

  132. no, your kids are in the stands watch a basketball game…and the education is not free, silly baby girl, they pay out of their asses for it by bringing in so much money for the schools…you don’t want none a this

  133. Ranting Candace.

    Conscious Empress?

    All the victimization philosophy and identity politcs. None of the fat.

  134. no, your kids are in the stands watch a basketball game…and the education is not free, silly baby girl, they pay out of their asses for it by bringing in so much money for the schools…you don’t want none a this

    My father was a first-generation college graduate because he got a football scholarship. I guess someone forgot to tell him it was a trick.

  135. no, your kids are in the stands watch a basketball game…and the education is not free, silly baby girl, they pay out of their asses for it by bringing in so much money for the schools…you don’t want none a this

    I wish my children could pay out of their asses by getting a full ride to college. It would hurt so good.

  136. um, actually, I’ve got 12 tones. They’re ugly, but whatever, get over yourselves.

  137. man, please, black folks in this country were not even allowed to read…they are not perfect…in fact I HATE NIGGERS!!!! they make it bad for us black folks
    we are not a monolithic entity

    but most of us share a common oppressor

    culture is the difference between black folks in america and black folks in africa, and unless you’ve been all over, as several of MY peeps have (ive been too busy rasing five children WITH a husband) you don’t know africa you dont know african americans you dont know rev wright MY HERO and you dont need to know

    fuck you back you silly little fool
    kisses
    candi girl

    ps vote like it makes a difference!!

  138. I’m sensing a disconnect from candace’s claimed degrees and her mediocre grasp of grammer and punctuation.

    I must be an oppresser and, thus, I will condemn myself.

    Also, don’t forget that it’s whitey’s fault that rap and hip hop are so misogynistic and materialistic

    I condemn my self again. Just to be sure, I condemn JD and Al as Tools of the Patriarchy and thor as unconvincingly black.

    Carin, you’re just a white bitch. Sorry.

  139. My father was a first-generation college graduate because he got a football scholarship. I guess someone forgot to tell him it was a trick.

    Quarterback, lineman, or kicker?

  140. I roomed with a couple of athletes on scholarship. They attended the mandatory study halls. They graduated from school. And got JOBS.

    Man, it must have really sucked to be them … starting out their life w/o student loans.

  141. (ive been too busy rasing five children WITH a husband)

    Do you mean that your 5 children all share one husband, or that each of your 5 children has a husband and you raised them all?

  142. Oppressor: I have trouble spelling and oppressing in the same comment.

    Yet again I condemn myself. Maggie is inauthentically toneful and thus can only sing straight beat show tunes.

    I, however, will not condemn her because she E-Mails me cool music.

  143. no, your kids are in the stands watch a basketball game…and the education is not free, silly baby girl, they pay out of their asses for it by bringing in so much money for the schools…you don’t want none a this

    WTF?

    They pay for their education by playing a game. OK, no problem there; if the school sees a benefit in the trade, no problem. If the student athlete doesn’t take care of the “student” part, it’s their own fault. They have the same opportunity for getting an education as any of the other students, including those who are paying their own way with outside jobs, or whose parents are sacrificing to pay the tuition.

    You originally said:

    Speaking of baskets, look you negroes, play sports for us, we will use you to the best of of your ability, make billions off of you, then not give you the help to earn a useful degree.

    What “help” do they need? Why is it the responsibility of anyone else to provide it?

  144. A black gi joe?

    yep. perhaps you should get out more.

  145. ethnomusicogical

    Oh, no you didn’t.

    candace iz in ur edukayshn sistem, fukn up ur childrnz.

  146. Al: I condemn you for your cartoon posturing about black families. I’m e-mailing JD and he will condemn you as well, right after he takes your money at Purgatory.

    I condemn myself for liking golf, a corporate shill tool of the oppressor and white other.

    And Whiskey but not Scotch.

  147. culture is the difference between black folks in america and black folks in africa, and unless you’ve been all over, as several of MY peeps have (ive been too busy rasing five children WITH a husband) you don’t know africa you dont know african americans you dont know rev wright MY HERO and you dont need to know

    Well, perhaps we should just call it quits? You can live in your black society … and I’ll live over here with all the rest of the folks who wish to be recognized for something other than their skin color or distant ancestors whose relevance on their life is dependent only so-much as one wishes it to be.

  148. Hmm. So no white students ever got scholarships as athletes?

    News to me.

  149. I loved Fat Albert as a small white child. Oh Mushmouth, will you ever learn?

  150. man, please, black folks in this country were not even allowed to read…

    That was how many generations ago?

    What’s happened since?

  151. Carin, you’re just a white bitch.

    Don’t I know it.

  152. musta missed my post about going down the beach with all my white asian and latino folks…
    love ya carin,
    peace

  153. right after he takes your money at Purgatory.

    Whoa whoa whoa! What’s up BJ? Why don’t you skin that smokewagon and see what happens?

    I’m gonna need some strokes JD.

  154. Sounds like Candace makes lots of assumptions about people based on race. “Oppressor” and all that.

  155. musta missed my post about going down the beach with all my white asian and latino folks…

    Why, yes, thanks for asking: some of my best friends are white, too.

  156. candace is lame. i am wholly convinced the only folks who give a shit about color are those who neeeeeeeed to feel victimized to feel fulfilled. Candace – go suck an egg. Seriously, this shit is old. No one cares. More racists on the left than I ever thought possible. the Rev Wright is a bigot. End of story. I am not responsible for your issues. Not even a little. I can’t fix what you think has been done to you.

  157. YOU were the one who said I cannot know African or African-American Culture. That I didn’t NEED to listen to what Wright had to say. Do you say the same things to those hordes of white, asian, and latino friends?

  158. oh, and hanging your credentials on the wall is just the same as masturbating. it may feel good, but you dont wanna get caught doing it in public.

  159. ps vote like it makes a difference!!

    Yeah, so far it looks like I’ll be voting for Hillary in the Oregon Primary.

  160. um, actually, I’ve got 12 tones. They’re ugly, but whatever, get over yourselves.

    Sure, Maggie. But can you clap?

  161. So, Enoch – do you think I should take them down? Are you telling me you guys ain’t buying it?

    I swears, I’m a doctor. NURSE, bring in my next patient!

    I gotta go, guys. SURGERY AWAITS.

  162. Maggie, you are hereby condemned as black GI Joe is inauthentic as he only joined the military due to the oppresors’ quashing of all of his other economic opportunities.

    Rob Crawford is hereby condemned for willfully ignoring the oppresor’s ritualized exploitation of the Athletic Black Man to further his capitalist greed cuz giving the Athletic Black Man the opportunity to get a feee college edumacation is stylized victimization of his oppressed past, rendering him incapable of operating in the oppresors’ world, under the opppresors’ rules.

    On second thought, Rob, you are doubly condemned and placed on Double Secret Racialist Probation.

    Carin, I’m sorry, but you have been elevated to Pasty White Bitch.

  163. Seriously, candace’s comments make me wonder if the nishtoon has had another identity-group transplant.

  164. There are certain elements of grammar & syntax mangling that might point to a reconfiguration of the basic nishibot engine.

  165. ..plus there’s the sudden burst of paranoia. It does fit.

  166. Carin, I’m sorry, but you have been elevated to Pasty White Bitch.

    Is that a promotion or a demotion?

  167. Sure, Maggie. But can you clap?

    oh sure, I clap all the time… I.. um… noooOOOOOOO!

    *sob*

  168. Carin – nah. I like yours, they are all shiny and stuff. It’s just,,,, as a white guy, I HATE seeing ejumacated black folks… you know, cause their black… and black… and well, I liked it before when I was alive and had some slaves… and was able to prevent them from reading … dont even get me started about voting. good Lord.

  169. Robbo,

    My mom’s pop was born in 1861, enslaved…we are a highly educated bunch, all eight of us, and my parents have been married for 56 years…if history means nothing, if generational wealth means nothing, then my bad.

    But if you think that all you white folks have it on the ball, then you got another think coming.

    all im sayin is this:
    get up off rev wright
    he ain’t nobody for you to be concerned about, so leave him be
    that goes for my other hero, minister farrakhan, (still have questions about malcolm x, but hey, ive learned to like white folks!) leave him be
    he doesn’t ask for anything from anybody, not handouts, not social services: do it yourself black man.
    and furthermore, carin, you are not a bitch, if i was white or you were black we’d probably be friends
    oh well
    peace

  170. Watching the clip of this piece of bi-pedal feces damning my country removed him from any manner of further consideration–he no longer exists for me.

  171. Candace’s first comment used some capital letters … although they did revert to all lower caps …

    I dunno … we could try this …

    WEDGE STRATEGY!

  172. he ain’t nobody for you to be concerned about, so leave him be

    just proclaimed “spiritual mentor” for some guy running for President. nothing to see here.

  173. mediocre, baby please
    straight 4.0 in my masters program
    but i am who i am and i am in a rush
    kisses!
    that’s the double consciousness dubois spoke on, and no they are not in black studies lol
    i love you all
    you are so funny

  174. no more than peter franklin paul is to hillary, no more than the bin ladens and saddam huseins were to bush and dad i could go on, but i’m posting in between questions from my babies

  175. But if you think that all you white folks have it on the ball, then you got another think coming.

    Oh, I love it when you do General Burkhalter! Do Sgt. Schultz next.

  176. if i was white or you were black we’d probably be friends

    That right there says all I need to know about Candace.

  177. and furthermore, carin, you are not a bitch, if i was white or you were black we’d probably be friends
    oh well

    Assuming, of course, that I couldn’t be friends with a black person. Imagine what a lonely life I’ve lived, seeing as though about 30+ years I’ve been a resident of Detroit.

    I think it’s the white hood that scares ‘em away.

  178. no more than the bin ladens and saddam huseins were to bush and dad i could go on

    please do. I’m fascinated by your ideas and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

  179. Is candace going for some kind of record on saying goodbye?

    Goodbye!

    I’m all out of condemnations.

  180. man, please, black folks in this country were not even allowed to read

    Yup. It is true. The local library has a sign on the front door that says “Black folks are not allowed to read”

    if i was white or you were black we’d probably be friends

    This is the most unintentionally racist statement I have ever seen.

    BJ – Consider yourself perpetually denounced. And condemned. But not aggreived.

    alpuccino – Thor has used up all of the available strokes stroking off Baracky. I shall be giving none, and you will like it. Quoting Tombstone is the sign of a good person.

  181. Oh, I love it when you do General Burkhalter! Do Sgt. Schultz next.

    I thought she was doing Judas Priest.

  182. ok – it’s show and tell time…

    my grandpa’s pa (on my pop’s side) came to the States from Ireland… in the hold of a ship in 1892… because they were poor and hungry, given the English and their desire to reduce the native-Catholics from the Emerald Isle. They were not allowed to get a public education or apply for jobs at WASP establishments. In WWI and WWII, they died in numbers far stripping the per capita population of Catholic Irish. There was a reason: they knew the only way to get respect was to perform. Nonetheless, we are only now coming of age in this country. That is, it has taken generations. And a lot of sacrifice from a lot of people who I don’t know. And really, now it doesnt matter any more than skin color, because the “races” as it were are all smashed together. I have some black blood in me (eeeee gads!), some indian, some Dutch, Norwegian, and… oh God, a good deal of … ENGLISH… Barack and especially Wright are bordering on white guys themselves… what will they do? What will they do when their kids marry off to … erm… a pasty skinned Carin? I mean, what will happen to the romance… nay the love affair with their cultural identity? How will they function? I mean, clingy-ness and all. Who gives a shit… I have it on good authority that Providence placed me here… and guess what? The Irish that my family left behind have no love for me. And I no love for them. We left for a reason. They stayed for a reason… and many of them came as indentured servants, or worse, were impressed into the Civil War. But do we continue to bitch about it? By and large we don’t. Because it does NO GOOD. And because others rightly dont care… nor do I force them to.

  183. bless ya hearts…oh god we should really met in vegas or something…have a real smackdown

    So, you black folk have some special magic? You stated earlier that white people can’t know African and/or African American culture. But, you know us SO WELL. You’re all just a big fucking mystery to us, but you’ve got us figured out? Right.

    And, we can’t dance or sing or jump.

    But, you’re not racist, because you walk on the beach with your white, asian and latino friends. Keep telling yourself that.

  188. Maybee, are they fiction or non-fiction. that’s the ,real tell.

  189. Quarterback, lineman, or kicker?

    Ha! Halfback, baby. He’s old school.

  190. JD – you’re married to a …. vietnamese woman? fucking race traitor! I knew there was something screwy about you… and I guess yer kid is half and half then? dude – sorry, man… you know that party invitation? yeah, erm… well… um… my friends, well… some of them just won’t understand.

  191. My mom’s pop was born in 1861, enslaved…we are a highly educated bunch, all eight of us, and my parents have been married for 56 years…if history means nothing, if generational wealth means nothing, then my bad.

    And, so?

    You want to talk about “generational wealth”? My grandfather spent a few years riding the rails and taking work wherever he could in the middle of the Great Depression. He almost got arrested for bank robbery because he was a stranger in Ripley, OH. Eventually he made enough cash to go home and get married, then he and his bride moved to Cincinnati with nearly nothing.

    He got a job as a steel worker. They saved, bought an apartment building. Eventually, they owned a few buildings — their lifetime savings were tied up in those buildings, all in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine and West End.

    Many of their properties were destroyed in rioting in the 1960s. Others were rendered nearly valueless when their neighborhood — never a pleasant place — descended into anarchy.

    Yeah, slavery and all its attendant institutions were evil. But it’s been gone for almost 150 years. The intervening years weren’t great — often horrible — for blacks, but at some point, you have to stop blaming history for the problems of today. Particularly when Occam’s Razor suggests much, much more immediate causes for the problems of today.

    When I hear someone like Wright spouting lines that, but for the inversion of the colors involved, could come from the mouth of a David Duke or Matt Hale, and hear supposedly educated people defending him, I get sick to my stomach. I’ve tried all my life to live up to the ideal of “by the content of their character”, and the contents of Wright’s character are poisonous. So why defend him? Why praise him? Why treat him any better than a white racist would be treated?

  192. I think we are being scammed. Nobody is this willfully ignorant.

  193. Enoch – According to the Amandas and candaces of the world, I am using my position a a TWP to oppress my wife, and the fact that she is a minority makes it that much more offensive.

  194. could it be that White America actually heard MLK… and know the Rev Wright is a piss-poor analog? Could it be blacks didn’t hear MLK? Now that’s weird. I celebrate him everyday by looking beyond color (except for JD’s wife) and am surprised that it seems black folks want me to ALWAYS see the color of their skin instead.

  195. Ha! Halfback, baby. He’s old school.

    Wow. Taking a position that rightfully belonged to a black man. You’re guilt must run deep.

  196. Actually, BJ, I think you’re wrong. I think a frighteningly large number of people of both colors believe it.

  197. I think JD is right. With the disparity of power between the two of them, the consummation of their relationship is little more than rape.

  198. think we are being scammed. Nobody is this willfully ignorant.

    I call BS on BJ and denounce him. candace is that ignorant, demonstrably. Amanda is. Mona is. The gleeeens are. nishitiot is. The list, it is endless.

  199. The comments, they are so many and it’s not even lunch yet.

  200. carin,
    if i was an unconscious BLACK woman, we’d probably be friends, but as it stands, we just disagree to disagree
    lol
    my para is here so i am chatting away, stupid ass standardized tests…all work and no intellectualism makes black children dumb as hell
    will sell out their FAMILIES FOR A DOLLAR
    WILL PRAISE MATERIALISM AND FORGET THEIR ROOTS AND THEIR ELDERS
    WILL BELIEVE IN THE INNATE INFERIORITY PLACED ON THEM BY THEIR TEACHERS TO THE MEDIA
    WILL NOT FORCE THEMSELVES TO SUCCEED
    CARTER G WOODSON SAID IT BEST “You will not have to send [black folks] them to the back door, they will go on their own. And if there is no back door, they will create one.”
    You young whippersnappers don’t have the courage rev. wright has, nor the experience, nor the right to talk like you do. and all you irish boat travelers, ya came with white skin and that was pretty much all you needed.
    won’t try to talk sense, just get all nasty and pseudo-intellectually racist.
    so coach comes and chooses this time to tell the teachers lounge about going to play football at ole miss in 94…boy oh boy, he should stop thinking about something that happened in 1994! So what they called you nigger, boy and mother fucking niggers, so what! so what they hit you with jack daniels bottles thrown from dorm rooms, beer bottles, rocks, etc. so what?!, so what they played dixie when you all entered the field, so what (along with the black band members) so what? SO FUCKING WHAT, NIGGER!?!
    so what it marked you that you had to come back in here and tell me again that it was a bad scene…go rev wright never shutup, never go away, not even for the sake of your life…martin knew what was up, and so do we.
    god bless you all
    peace

  201. Thanks, Carin. Today is the first day that I can recall being called a racist rapist ;-)

  202. JD – don’t let her learn to speak English… seriously, she’ll get all uppity and want to learn how to read…

    my new book: “If you let your Vietnamese wife learn English, she’ll probably want to learn how to read it. If she learns how to read it, we’ll probably want to learn how to write it. And if she learns how to write it (if you let her, that is), chances are she’ll want a pencil of her own. And if you give her a pencil, she’ll probably want some paper… and if she has pencil and paper, she might write her relatives (who no doubt still live in the Orient) complaining of her oppressor of a husband and telling them that you’re bringing hobbling back into vogue…”

  203. But, you’re not racist, because you walk on the beach with your white, asian and latino friends. Keep telling yourself that.

    Nope, you can’t be her friend unless you are black, remember. At least she is honest about that. I am trying to get my mind around what kind of numbers we are talking about here:

    My mom’s pop was born in 1861, enslaved…we are a highly educated bunch, all eight of us, and my parents have been married for 56 years…

    Your mother’s father was 91 when she married?

  204. must be Nishi

    Yeah, the “I know you people” has the flavor of her bigotry against Christians.

  205. hf:

    I condemn you for thinking about eating lunch when there are so many minorities to oppress and starve.

    I call BS on BJ and denounce him. candace is that ignorant, demonstrably. Amanda is. Mona is. The gleeeens are. nishitiot is. The list, it is endless.

    I condemned you first which means that my condemn-fu trumps your denounce-wa.

  206. You know, if you unscramble “candace” you get “end caca”. It’s out there now.

  207. Also, were those GI Joes really black, or just white GI Joes in blackface? I always wondered about that.

  208. my para is here so i am chatting away, stupid ass standardized tests…all work and no intellectualism makes black children dumb as hell

    At the least, nishi-level stupid. Apparently only black kids take standardized tests.

  209. Rob – it must be the Nishidiot.

  210. found this on another blog, lest you guys think you are the satus quo:

    First of all, you need to ask yourself how often does the press express interest in the NAACP dinner? The reason the press were there was because of him.

    Now then, have you listened to the whole entire speech? Moreover, did you completely understand it? If you had, you’d see that he did his homework. He used several sources of information as well as results of research from prominent PhD’s in their fields.

    Have you listened to the sermons that contain the snippets in their entirety? I guarantee you that you would have a different impression of the man. For example, he said “G.D. America” in one of his sermons, right. However, did the media show you the rest of that sentence that went”if America thinks she is God!” Oh they didn’t show you that, did they? Moreover, you were gullible to think that you had an understanding of a man who’s over 70 years old in a snippet of 30 seconds! Would I be able to understand you in 30 seconds at 35 years of age?

    BTW, he’s got 2 Masters degrees, a PhD and several honorary degrees. He’s a veteran of the Marines and the Navy from a total of 6 years of service. Here is a man who has two Master’s degrees, a PhD and several honorary degrees. BTW, he was part of a team that operated on LBJ (Bill Moyers was there too). He has ministered for 40 years in a church that has helped people on 3 continents. He has grown his ministry from 87 people to over 8,000. He’s an entrepreneur that also travels a lecture circuit for which he’s booked solid for the next year or two. Thanks to the media, he’s a celebrity now! Funny, they were trying to malign him. instead, they made him RICH!

    He can’t be racist anyway. The United Church of Christ is a mostly WHITE denomination. There are White members in his church. Also, he has counseled a Black woman to marry a White man which she had apprehensions about. he told her that she shouldn’t refuse to marry him because he was white! He presided over the marriage as well! After all of that, how can he be racist?

    now fuck you all

  211. OK, nishi, the gig is up.

    Also, were those GI Joes really black, or just white GI Joes in blackface? I always wondered about that.

    It’s worse than that … *choke* … It’s black face on light skinned black men!! *sob*

    Why? Why is there no authenticity?? I CONDEMN EVERYONE EXCEPT JD!

  212. BMoe, if the pic here is any indication, they may have gone overboard with the makeup.

  213. the snippets

  214. No, really, I know some black people! so fuck off candace.

  215. BMoe, if the pic here is any indication, they may have gone overboard with the makeup.

    It’s worse than that, maggie. Poor fellow’s mother was taking thalidomide!

  216. Enoch – If you give a pig a pancake, it will still be smarter than the nishitiot.

  217. or can I not use that argument since I’m white?

  218. Enoch – If you give a pig a pancake, it will still be smarter than the nishitiot.

    Oh, please. The pancake is already smarter than nishidiot.

  219. Oh. There was a UCC in my little town in Texas. White as can be and they hated gays something fierce. Very bigoted church really. Maybe after they got a new pastor the mellowed out but it was a pretty hateful group of people there for awhile.

  220. No waffles on the other hand….

  221. maggie – can I borrow them for a night or two? I have this damn fund-raiser at the NPO I have to go to… and well… I think it would help with my fuzzy creds if I could bring one or two of your Black friends w me. I’ll buy them all the 20/20 they can handle as long as they make sure to do that jive talkin rev wright gig… that would be killer for my image. we just dont have any black people here where I live. well we do, but we dont really talk to them… cause theyre black… and black… and well cause you know theyre not white or whatever. not that I’m a racist. Hey, if theyre up for it or whatever, I could keep it on the LD or whatever and maybe borrow some of my kids’ rap albums. I think we have some marky-mark too.

  222. To whomever is doing the parody named candace, bravo. Splendid.

    BJ – You are denunciated in perpetuity. When in doubt, consider yourself denounced.

  223. And fat. Fat people. Not as fat as the Pentecostals but the Pentecostals were fat and strong. Big boned more. The UCC people were just fat like obese fat.

  224. Looks like we have a doppleganger thing going on with candace. It’s like a racially charged version of What’s My Line?

  225. Hey, I never masticated nobody.

  226. status quo…oh the horror of self-mportance
    i hop to god there is no hell, cause if it is, we all going to burn in that mf

  227. i hop to god

    That would be the Quakers.

  228. candace – you first.

  229. change! the snippety snippet of hopeful changitudinality!

  230. …he’s got 2 Masters degrees, a PhD and several honorary degrees. He’s a veteran of the Marines and the Navy from a total of 6 years of service. Here is a man who has two Master’s degrees, a PhD and several honorary degrees. BTW, he was part of a team that operated on LBJ (Bill Moyers was there too).

    But have any of his sermons ever been read on the floor of Congress? What about best sellers, how many of those he got? Huh? Huh?

    Yeah, that is what I thought!

  231. Comment by candace on 4/28 @ 11:42 am #

    man, please, black folks in this country were not even allowed to read…they are not perfect…in fact I HATE NIGGERS!!!! they make it bad for us black folks
    we are not a monolithic entity

    but most of us share a common oppressor

    No shit. I’m no Mark Cuban but those fuckin’ NBA refs are as bad the police. They sent Dwyane Tyrone Wade, Jr. to a NBA record 23 trips to the freethrow line, more than the entire Mavericks team in game 5!

    Don’t get me started on the men in zebra uni.s! OhPrEshEyuNnn!

  232. fuck – would someone condemn me or whatever, so as I can get back to work…. err… back to oppressin folks?

  233. sry, t’aint me.
    i been at work all morning.
    and i only have a MS math/stat.

    wat are those books on her reading list?
    ethnic studies?

  234. Comment by maggie katzen on 4/28 @ 12:44 pm #

    No, really, I know some black people! so fuck off candace.

    I used to carpool with one. Up that!

  235. “Do Sgt. Schultz next.”

    Click on a link to the Pope’s sermon.

  236. Enoch_Root , my boobs condemn you.


  237. Now then, have you listened to the whole entire speech? Moreover, did you completely understand it? If you had, you’d see that he did his homework. He used several sources of information as well as results of research from prominent PhD’s in their fields.

    That’s like saying he was well spoken. snicker.

  238. I used to carpool with one. Up that!

    I just dance with them in musicals. WHOSE CLAPPING NOW!?

  239. fuck – would someone condemn me or whatever, so as I can get back to work…. err… back to oppressin folks?

    Obama-baggin’ whitey, go on with your badself back to work!

    i hop to god

    That would be the Quakers.

    And only because they’re white and can’t dance.

  241. bmoe, my mom’s dad was dead when she got married…lol
    no doppleganger, just you smarter than average bear…
    you don’t really offend me with your racism, you just make me sad for you and for my children and for this country and world
    be careful, or i will break out my book of poems
    consciousempress@gmail.com/for all who want to make love to me when your friends aren’t watching
    peace
    gotta go over this stupid test now!
    btw, white children with their left brain selves do perform better, even when socio-economics are equal; black children with plenty money don’t perform as well with their counterparts…

  242. Goodness. Sorry candace, did you have to work for your bosses for free ? Are you implying you were owned as a slave ? THis may come as a surprise but the slave trade was outlawed over 100 years ago. Nobody in this generation worked as a slave and neither did Wright.

    *BIASED ASS state tests coming up next week. *

    I’m confused, there is a state test on biased asses ? Am I missing something or are you just not communicating your point very well.

    *Speaking of baskets, look you negroes, play sports for us, we will use you to the best of of your ability, make billions off of you, then not give you the help to earn a useful degree.*

    How much does Lebron James make for playing basketball. How about Kobe Bryant ? Or David Ortiz for playing baseball ? And I assume black athletes don’t receive college scholarships for playing sports at various colleges. Yep, we white people simply toss black folks in the back of the turnip truck, drive them to the stadium and/or arena and whip them/taser them so they’ll perform. Kinda like circus animals (sigh).

    *you ain’t shit…you don’t count, a black doll for boys? A black gi joe? get a grip and get with the program…who cares about dr. kenneth clark and his findings…just another militant unhappy negro.*

    So this is about african american dolls ? Um, ok. I saw a black Barbie a few days ago. I recall GI Joe had a number of African-American action figures. Quite honestly, I think the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles need both a white and black non-turtle member.

    *CANDACE BA, MEd, Phd.*

    Majored in african studies, doctorate in cultural diversity studies. I find it amusing you claim to have a Phd. considering you write like a stereotype, straight out of a ghetto.

  243. “must be Nishi”

    Yep.

  244. BJ – You are denunciated in perpetuity. When in doubt, consider yourself denounced.

    Hah! You are condemned as inauthentic and oppressive and are buried under a mighty stone of condemnation. Not even Atlas can help you now, oppressor! I laugh at your denunciations, blunted and discarded by my essential Mediterranean browness. I am protected and allowed to oppress, secure in my quasi racialist status.

    Now weep, weep as the hot spotlight of Mid western pasty victimization burns your racialist oppressiveness.

    BWAAAAA HAHAHAHA … *ack* plop

  245. Am I still in good with your boobs MayBee?

  246. I just dance with them in musicals. WHOSE CLAPPING NOW!?

    I had sex with one. Make that two, if you’re counting bachelor parties.

  247. no doppleganger, just you smarter than average bear…
    you don’t really offend me with your racism, you just make me sad for you and for my children and for this country and world

    Our racism? The only racism here is the outlandish parody on our part and the black racism on your part.

  248. all work and no intellectualism makes black children dumb as hell

    Whereas with no education standards, black childred were all Rhodes Scholars. Ah, for the good old days.

    For a giggle, you really ought to check out how much better educated kids in Florida are, after the imposition of standardized testing. Sure, maybe not a nice, vigorous classical education, but at least kids aren’t graduating high school unable to read and write in the same torrential numbers as before.

    We elected to place “adequate” as a priority before “perfect”, you see. Possibly part of the problem is you.

  249. So many candaces to condemn, so little time…

  250. were those GI Joes really black, or just white GI Joes in blackface?

    Neither. The really big secret is the white GI Joes were just black ones in whiteface and hair relaxer. Shhhhh…

  251. btw, white children with their left brain selves do perform better, even when socio-economics are equal; black children with plenty money don’t perform as well with their counterparts…

    If it’s only the TEST that is the problem, how do you explain the 24% graduation rate in Detroit?

  252. If it’s only the TEST that is the problem, how do you explain the 24% graduation rate in Detroit?

    Umm … the weather? No? Give me a minute… Oh, I know!

    OPPPRESSION BY THE OPPPRESSOR!

    Whee, what do I win?

  253. The oppressor is generous with it’s “P’s.”

  254. Comment by candace on 4/28 @ 12:39 pm #

    now fuck you all

    Hey, that’s my line. Get your own line.

  255. Am I still good with your boobs, Maybee? ;-)

    BJ – That was exquisite.

  256. Too late thor. It’s been cadaced. Might I suggest a new catch phrase?

    Submitted for your approval:

    “I’m glad we had this talk”

    “And that my friend is a tea bag”

    “Period. End of story.”

  257. Damn, those are good Alp. Damn good.

    How about:

    “You cogwheels can’t screw this tool!”

    “Eat like a man, still losing weight!

  258. Yours are better.

  259. “My broken condom speaks for itself, bitches!”

  260. Run with it.

  261. btw The planet has a fever. FYI.

  262. “Comment by JohnAnnArbor on 4/28 @ 11:51 am #

    Hmm. So no white students ever got scholarships as athletes?

    News to me.”

    Apparently to Tyler Hansbrough as well (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyler_Hansbrough).

    Of course he was only offered scholarships at North Carolina, Duke, Florida, Missouri, Kansas and Kentucky. Probably would have done better if he didn’t clap funny.

  263. What I’m saying is that broken rubber will not decompose. You can use it as a scrunchie or something.

  264. Am I still in good with your boobs MayBee?

    They aren’t that easy, alppu. Maybe I should post their reading list.

  265. Ex-Viking’s Chris Carter, hands of golden stick’um, reduced to screamin’ “Eat like man, still lose weight!”

    Sympathy, white shame, his soul food’s gone, never to be re-heated in a microwave. I cry ugly goblins when I see that strong black man soft-shoeing for a capitalist machine of dinners by mailbox.

  266. like = like’a

  267. Maybe I should post their reading list.

    As long as Titanic is on there. Hills Like White Elephants would work too.

  268. I KNEW it!

    I KNEW there was a PhD program, somewhere, in randomly making shit up.

  269. You know Buddy Ryan never gave Carter’s habit up. He opened himself to ridicule by saying “All he does is catch TD’s” But he had to shock Chris into going on Nutrisystem: The Cocaine Edition. Snort like a man, still cash a check.

  270. I KNEW there was a PhD program, somewhere, in randomly making shit up.

    What — you mean they’re not all in Randomly Making Shit Up?

    ‘Cause I had some professors who had Ph.D.s, and some that didn’t. Their coherence level was, without fail, inversely proportional to the level of their degrees.

    So I just assumed, you know.

  271. “Bitch smack her like a man, still smile in the family picture!”

  272. There’s your winner.

  273. no more than the bin ladens and saddam huseins were to bush and dad

    just to go back to this gem. I did not know they were muslim, or I wouldn’t have voted for them. and who can forget W’s stirring tome, “The vengeance of Allah”?

  274. After reading through all of the mighty works of Candace, I can only say Holy. Fucking. Shit.

    That, and I really need to get a PhD. They obviously just give them to anyone who asks.

  275. WAIWAIT, WAIT!! I have been working all day, trying to ensure that my student-athletes graduate on Saturday and so I’m late to the thread, but I desperately want to be denounced. Surely, my nick is worth some level of condemnation, right? What about my pointy boots? My PhD? I have a bunch of white kids and a white wife–no lawn jockey, but the compulsory Madonna statue in my front yard.

    Come on!

    SOMEONE REPUDIATE ME!

  276. the compulsory Madonna statue in my front yard

    Which one — young, old, or the one with the cone bra?

  277. Cowboy, you are just another Jesus-humping racist. And homophobe.

    BECAUSE OF THE MADONNA!

    But you’re a Cowboy, and even though you had home field advantage yet lost to the Giants in the NFC Championship Game, the Giants redeemed your losing performance by whupping the Pats in the Superbowl. I will repudiate your owner but I can not repudiate you, Cowboy, anymore than I’d repudiate my white grandmother. You’re still America’s team.

  279. Fuck that recycling.

  280. Thanks, cranky-d, I knew that just below my surface there was a racist homophobe lurking.

    Isn’t that what they do? Lurk?

    You have to help me, I’m new to this.
