SECOND POST FOR TODAY: OLD SCHOOL FRIDAY IS BELOW
When I first got wind of this story last night, before the details developed, I just thought Jesse was talking slick again about Barack. Sipping out of that big cup of haterade that’s being passed around by our so-called “leaders.”
I wasn’t prepared for this.
What kind of fuckery is this? Somebody please tell me that Faux News framed him.
Afraid not because he issued this stumbling, bumbling “apology” which some feel that he should not even have made.
I’m not even going to address his contention that Obama is talking down to Black folk. While I don’t agree, that’s not even the issue.
Why would Reverend Jesse ,a black man who was active in the Civil Rights Movement and ran for President of these here United States of Amerikka, let anything about cutting another black man’s balls off come out of his mouth? Why was that even in his head? We don’t need that kind of rhetoric coming from our own people when there are plenty of white men (and women) who would love to string Obama up on a tree and get ahold of his nuts. Need I remind you? Jesse are you smoking that Pookie?
What is he really mad about? He wasn’t mad about how we looked when his very public and messy dirty laundry came spilling out of the closet in the form of a yet another illegitimate black child.
Doesn’t matter if he thought the mic was off. Soundbite my ass. Did you see that slicing movement he did with his hand? He was serious with it! Besides, this was Faux News. They had it in for his black ass the minute he stepped off the elevator.
It’s obvious that deep down he does not support Barack’s candidacy. Guess someone will be holding his nose and pulling that lever huh? So be it. We’re doing okay without you. We’re busy trying to give an old man a beat down so just put a muzzle on it, mmkay? I don’t want to hear from you. Don’t you have an outside kid to raise?
Jesse, for your foolishness, you are awarded the hardest bitch slap Michelle can muster and the Side Eye of The Week Week Week.
You know though, for all my ranting, this could turn out to be a good thing. Barack could be having his “accidental Sista Souljah Moment.”
While I got that good twitch going on, I want to share some thoughts inspired by a comment left on my Malia Obama post.
The problem is they are kids of today. Kids of today are TOO BRATTY. In addition, I think Michelle’s real problem is not her kids, but herself, turning her kids on her husband,. She likes to castrate him and often, perhaps the way Jesse would like to.
First, I do agree that many kids today are bratty. I was going to disagree when I first read this in the morning. But on my evening commute, I listened as a black father and his teen daughter talked about the phone he was going to buy her. She was rejecting the phone he wanted to get her because she didn’t want the same phone that everyone else had. She then suggested that he buy her an iPhone and he was actually amenable to it. When he saw my not-so-subtle side eye he started pretending to lecture her about how there was only one phone in the entire house when he was a kid. Whateva sucka. I put on my IPOD at that point. I see why the Lord took care of me when I wasn’t taking care of myself (kept me childless thus far.) By the time I finished with that little heffa, she would have been begging me to use Morse Code to communicate with her little friends.
That being said, I blame the father. I would have never thought to ask for an expensive ass smart phone. She is a kid without a j-o-b! What appointments does she have? He should have nipped that in the bud long ago. It’s all in how you raise these kids. My hair stylist told me that she taught her kids long ago not to even expect stuff like that and to be happy with the things they got. And they are. I believe that’s what the Obamas are teaching their kids. Therefore, Malia is not a brat.
This person is not alone in their assertion that essentially Michelle is a giant, angry black woman that walks around with Barack’s balls in her purse. Lots of people feel that way, which is part of the reason there’s the need for a site like Michelle Obama Watch. Obviously since I am a Michelle Obamaholic, my side eye explodes each and every time I come across these kinds of comments.
Amerikkka has not seen anything like this statuesque, dynamic and vibrant woman before and they just can’t handle it. She is not the Stepford Wife staring into space, waving like an empty headed pageant contestant. She is going to dap her man up, telling him with her eyes, “You that man, B! The world is yours! I got your back.”
I, for one, love how she keeps it real about her husband – that he is just a man and not some god that’s going to swoop into the White House and save the world overnight. America is not used to her brand of wit and I fear that she will have to change her rhetoric quite a bit a bit once the general gets under way. I already see it happening as a result of her “political makeover” and that saddens me. It’s already starting. What was with that Daisy Mae dress she had on during the Access Hollywood interview? It wasn’t “her.” Very subdued and matronly, even for a casual day out.
In any event, I know Michelle will do what she has to do to get her man in there, including snatching up the good Rebb’n Doctor. Oh to have been a fly on the wall when she heard that one!
i really don’t know WHAT to make of jesse jackson. i really don’t. this is the same man who once made negative remaks about jewish people on television…then tried to turn around and deny he meant it in a disrespectful manner.
now, probably due to the Old Guard agenda, he wants to play ‘i am your friend in your face but i speak bad behind your back’ with barack obama – a man who simply spoke what always needs to be said.
B. Good said:
Who does he (Jesse) think he is? He’s a hater cuz Barack is doing what he couldn’t.
Dummy. Just go sit DOWN somewhere!
Jessie is clownin’ himself as bad as his “hymietown” days. This is nothing new. He just got busted yet again. I guess Sen. Obama hit a sore spot w/the Rev. considering the fact that he was probably not in the life of his illegitimate child. That snipe was a little “too” personal. Clean up your act Rev. and you won’t have to worry.
Folks need to leave Michelle alone. She will do what she must so that her husband can win. However, she will not be silenced because she isn’t that type of woman. All this b-s about her “emasculating” her husband is the same ole b-s we’ve always heard when a woman is accomplished and has her own mind.
She loves that man to death and vice versa. Ain’t no doubt in my mind about that family. No doubts @ all. On to the White House or as Brotha George Clinton would say “Paint the white house black.”
Why, oh why are you hatin’ on that dad who decided to give his daughter an iPhone? Perhaps he’s got it like that. Perhaps, like my college kids, she is so angelic and behaved that he’d give her whatever she wants.
I was blessed with two wonderful kids and if there’s something they want and I can afford it, it’s theirs. They are spoiled, but, not brats, and there is a difference. They were raised properly with all the manners in the world. They suffered through college with great grades. They’ve never given me a moment’s trouble. (BTW – that’s the rule, not the exception – we hear about trouble kids all the time, but, the good ones, well, they’re quiet, focused, trouble-free, and don’t make news) Why not give them what they ask for? That man on the bus may have been the same type of dad that I am – wanting to give my kids the things that I wasn’t able to have when I was young. What could be wrong with that if she was raised properly, appreciates the life she’s been afforded, and the parent is able to reciprocate with luxury items? That goes along with your hairdresser’s statement that her child should not even expect such items – if you don’t have it like that, then, so be it. But, why make kids settle for second best when they can actually have first-rate things. I don’t see the lesson in “denying” when it’s not necessary.
I do get the idea that there are some very bratty kids out there that deserve, at best, an a$$-whippin’. Somehow, I don’t see that young girl as one of them.
(of course I wasn’t there, so perhaps I missed the “attitude” that may have been present). Peace.

@sdg- I think that’s exactly what it is. The anger we saw made it clear to me he was personally offended by things Obama said…and about his campaign. Some have said he is essentially running Jesse’s campaign, but SUCCESSFULLY.
@ freedom – first, thanks for stopping by and commenting.
now, let’s be clear. there is absolutely NO hateration going on here. You may be new to this site so you may not know that I am an only child and was spoiled as well growing up. I got the best of everything as well in part because my mother grew up with NOTHING.
Now the price of admission was WAY above average grades, permanent stay on the honor roll, all kinds of distinguished student awards and scholarship offers when I graduated, all kinds of leadership positions in school…the list goes on. I didn’t have a sense of entitlement to these things. I worked hard, gave my mother what she wanted, and I was rewarded for it. I was blessed as your kids appear to be. And I’ll likely do the same for my kids – if they give me what I want and don’t act like they are entitled to such things. But again, that’s on me to raise them that way.
If you would have been there on the train to hear this conversation, you would see where I was coming from. This girl felt she was ENTITLED to these things. She didn’t want to have what everybody else had because she was oh so different than her classmates. I didn’t hear her father say anything about her doing anything to deserve it. If he felt she deserved it because she was excelling in school or whatever else, he would not have given her that lecture about how he only had one phone in the house, etc. She was a brat and he knew it.
Now I do have to say that I didn’t mean for it to come across that I think brats and bad ass kids were the norm. I spoke of my goddaughter in another post and she is definitely not like that! I was just disgusted with that girl’s attitude when I wrote the post so that came through. Not to mention, I’ve just written so much on here about kids that are horribly abused and even killed by their parents before they even get a chance at life. These kids need to just be glad they have parents that love them and are sodomizing, starving, or putting their hands on hot stoves.
There is so much more I have to say about this. May show up in a blog post.

All I will say in regards to the stupendous piece above is: PREACH!! And if this note actually sticks to your page, you of course know it is because I am NOT on my Mac…lol
Stay strong, beautiful and thank you for being you!
vivrant thing is definitely NOT a hater.
but i am about to become a hater if she skips over my comment again.

@ conn- it stuck girl! glad to see your face in the place.
@ don – 🙂 thanks for sticking up for a sista! wouldn’t want you to become a hater!
however, since i am so longwinded, i think i am going to take on a policy of only responding to comments that elicit an immediate response from me. new commenters i will always respond to of course. but if i agree or have nothing to add to what you say, they i won’t likely comment back. nothing personal. just a time saving technique i’m considering. most people don’t come back and look at your response anyway i’m discovering. i applaud ya’ll folks who have fifty eleben commenters a day and respond to them all!
Jesse Jackson makes me sick. That’s all I can stomach saying about him and the rest of his “guard” for now.
