Barack Obama's Acceptance Speech

I am a much better reader than listener (that's a bit tragic) so to that end I am posting the link ( because the actual text is too long) of last night's acceptance speech so that I can revisit it should he actually become our next President.

I thought the speech was amazing last night but after reading it -- I'm convinced that it was amazing. This guy's has so much finesse, charisma and intelligence that it's difficult for me to hold against him his voting record relating to abortion (particularly late term). Although I must confess that the tribal part of myself wants to see a black President of the United States.

But McCain made an absolutely brilliant move politically with his VP selection, Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska. She is a right wing christian conservative (yeah, yeah and yeah) who after learning that the child she was carrying had Down Syndrome made the decision to continue the pregnancy. My friends, it is ON!!!! I am sure that I am not the only "on the fence christian conservative" who felt moved by Mr. Obama's impassioned acceptance speech last night, who now as a cooler head prevails is thinking Ms. Palin is just the type of person we want to see in the White House (Or at least next in line) So, I can't wait until the Republican convention next week.

Well, here is Mr. Obama's acceptance speech if you wish to watch:

70% of Black Women are Single!!!

My friends are really in complete denial!!! I want to make the point that I am not bashing black men because I feel that "Mini-me" should be open to the possibility of dating outside of our race. It's just that statistically the odds of "marriage" aren't good and this stupid-azz notion of "wifey" (definition: (n) a stature which is a above girlfriend, or one acknowledged as wife material yet still a single black woman) is becoming ever more prevalent and acceptible to these silly women (but I digress). I want to make the point that black men aren't completely to blame. Women, we need to stop being loosey-goosey with our "stuff" and keep our legs closed. We show people how to treat us and if we act like whores we will be treated no better than whores. Wait.... I hear it playing again in my head by the "legions of black women in denial" heretofore called BWID's "White women are loose too" to which I respond--"SO WHAT!!!! 70% OF WHITE WOMEN ARE NOT HAVING BABIES OUT OF WEDLOCK AND 70% OF WHITE WOMEN AREN'T SINGLE!!!!" Anyway, check out this clip....

So, there are good black men in the world!!! Yippee!!! Mini-me, listen to your Mommy...Don't limit yourself or you will be a part of the stats my Love.

Toby Keith brings chickens home to roost

Toby Keith gave his commentary on how black folks feel about Barack Obama and why he has made it so far in the race for the White House. According to Toby-- Barack has made it so far because.... well, listen for yourself

Now what's most upsetting about this is some of us are stupid enough to think that way about Black people who are educated and feel no need to stay inside of the "black box". If only I could count the number of time I have been accused of acting and speaking white because I properly conjugate my verbs. How many times I have been accused of this very thing by people who look like me because I choose to be Me and not some caricature of what a "down" black woman.

Toby Keith is just regurgitating the same disparaging nonsense that he has no doubt heard some ignorant black person say. These folks (ignorant black people) have no right to be indignant because they put this stupid crap out there so why get angry when the chicken comes home to roost!!! Same goes for the "N" word but that's a blog for another day.
