Larry King/Chris Rock Interview (link)…

Here’s an excerpt from last night’s Larry King/Chris Rock interview on CNN:

KING: You must be … proud that at this stage in our history a black man is running for president on a major ticket.

ROCK: Um, you know what? I’m proud Barack Obama’s running for president. You know? If it was Flavor Flav, would I be proud? No. I don’t support Barack Obama because he’s black.

Barack! Whatever you do, don’t get angry…

See this excerpt from a recent article by Arianna Huffington:

To fully become the transformational leader we need, Obama must demonstrate to the American people his capacity for indignation — for the kind of ferocious passion that fueled King and Nelson Mandela. He has to fight fire with fire, and wield anger in the service of what right, true, and good. The fierce urgency of now demands nothing less.

She’s not the only one. Other neo-liberals have called for Barack to get angry. To “grow a pair”. Brotha – pleeease don’t fall for the okie-dokie. Ain’t these some of the same people that attacked and castigated and demonized Rev. Jeramiah Wright for his rousing displays of “indignation” ???  Look, the truth of the matter is this, the only time White folk really want to see an angry black man…

WARNING: PLEASE READ AND SHARE THIS POST…

This election ain’t gonna be no stroll into the White House for the Obama/Biden ticket.   The Republican Party has lots of resources at its disposal eg. money, whiteness, a well-oiled political machine, forked tongues…  They have an inordinate amount of concentrated power and influence, and possess a win-at-all-costs attitude.  They are not going to relinquish power w/o a serious street-fight.  I’m talkin some Gaza Strip type shit.

Where is this coming from?  This election is ours to lose.  There is way too much at stake.  And I feel that far too many people ain’t really tuned into what’s about to go down.  I’m picking up on too much smugness.  Too much complacency.  After the RNC, and considering the dire state of the economy – and having to subsist against the apocalyptic backdrop of our rapidly deteriorating civil and social society (I believe we’ve been courting a modern day Nadir period for the past 8+ years), I should be overwhelmed – by a sense of urgency – by a “this shit can’t wait attitude” – coming from my fellow Democrats.  It ain’t there.  Dig this, I was at an event this weekend w/ a whole bunch of College students.  Long story short, about 500-800 of us gathered in an auditorium and from the stage someone asked how many people are NOT registered to vote — NIG– I mean, DAWG!!!  After they counted raised-hands do you know it turned out that about 1/5 of the room was NOT registered to vote.  Str8 up!  And it wasn’t just the College kids either!!!  Do you catch my drift?  This ain’t gonna work for me.  It shouldn’t work for you either.  We have to do better.  We can do better.  Now, what I’m about to say/suggest, I’m sure you’ve heard/read it before, but I think it’s worth repeating over and over and over and over again.  Below is a list of things that we can do to help ourselves. Things we can do to help get the Democrats into the White House.  If you think this is useful PLEASE spread it far and wide.

  • Make sure you are registered to vote.
  • Join the Obama campaign.
  • Register at least 10 people to vote.  Encourage each one of them to do the same.
  • Blog/email in support of Obama.
  • If you are able, donate to the Obama campaign.  Don’t trip about the amount.  Shit, I’m broke too, but I figure a whole bunch of people giving a lil sumthin-sumthin goes a long way.
  • PRAY, HAIL MARY, MEDITATE, CHANT, SACRIFICE…
  • If you’re in a street-gang (Folks/Mo’s) threaten mf’s to register and vote Obama!
  • Educate yourself about the candidates and the issues.  Make candidate cheat-sheets for yourself and others.  Talk about Obama/Biden: at work, while droppin’ off shorties at school, at Church/Mosque/Liquor Store, at the gym.  Fellas, talk about the ’08 election/Obama as part of your mack…  The more you know – the better yo game – and the better yo game…  Lay-ups!!!  How’s that for incentive?
  • Host Obama/Biden info parties at the crib.  Make and share Obama/Biden mix cd’s.  Bake for Obama.
  • DO SUMTHIN!!!

Seriously, if you feelin’ me, PLEASE share this post far and wide.

The RNC: “We Can’t Let This Nigga Win!!!”

First off, no one at the RNC actually uttered the phrase that makes up the title of this post.  Not yet.   Anyhoot, let me get right down to it.  The color-lines are being drawn…

  • Did anyone notice that the RNC was void of colored folk?  Nothin but OLD white men. I mean damn – we all know that the nation’s population and future electorate is becoming more and more colored (Black/Latino) – and the Republicans str8 up ignored this statistical fact.  They made absolutely no attempt what-so-ever to make the RNC look the least bit inclusive.  Where was JC Watts?  How about Michael Steele?  Clearly, they are running strong on some “Us (Mainstream White America)” vs. “Them (Colored America eg. Blacks, Latinos, Asians, etc.)” shit.  Get ready people.
  • Sarah Palin:  a self-described hockey mom, pitbull w/ lipstick, hunter, snowmobiler…  Uhhh – this chick is a self-avowed REDNECK!
  • What about the Palin daughter baby drama?  The Red-America pundits talked this up as something positive – an example of a good ol’ American family standing together and strong through adversity .  When this happens in a Black family… Do I really need to spell it out?
  • Did you hear Fred Thompson call for a new culture war in America?

I could go on and on, but I think you all get the point.  The masks are comin’ off.  Too much is at stake people.  What are you going to do?
