Earlier this month the Los Angeles NAACP engaged in utter foolishness and time wastage, claiming a Hallmark graduation card that had been on the shelves for 3 years was racist because of "black holes" verbiage, when the theme of the card was clearly about the solar system, not "black whores"...
I'm sorry, but what idiots.
Meanwhile, the NAACP issued nary a peep when Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made a shockingly racist remark to the New York Times in 2009. Ginsburg's statement will be featured at the upcoming 4th Annual Protest Against Abortion at the NAACP Convention. Click to enlarge....
All pro-lifers in the vicinity are welcome to attend the protest, to be held outside the KS City Convention Center (Bartle Hall) on July 12 and 13 from 10a to 2p. Sponsors are LEARN/BlackGenocide.org) and the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform MO/KS, among other groups.
Signs will be provided. Truth Trucks will also peruse the area, and copies of the Maafa 21 dvd will be distributed to convention attendees.
BAAAHAHAHAHAA, are we SERIOUS about the Hoops and Yoyo card?? Those people were for REAL? This isn't a pathetic SNL skit?
The card very CLEARLY said "black holes."
Good grief.Posted by: Kelli at June 15, 2010 2:34 PM
I heard PLAINLY "Black HOLES". Those people need hearing aids. They're just looking for an excuse to be angry....they'll find something else.Posted by: Pamela at June 15, 2010 2:38 PM
This is incredible! I am wondering if the NAACP plays the Beatles White Album backwards they're read some racists remarks?!!Posted by: ann marie at June 15, 2010 3:33 PM
gee what's wrong with my brain today I meant to write,
"play the Beatles White Album backwards they would hear some racists remarks"
Not so funny when this happens.Posted by: ann marie at June 15, 2010 3:38 PM
These representatives of the National Association fot the Advancement of Colored People are a vicims of their own self inflicted wounds.
Do we all remember when the Oakland California School Board promoted teaching 'ebonics' as a language equivalent to Spanish or French or English?
How does demonstrating proficiency in 'ebonics' prepare a high school student for college or for a job in America?
(I do not recall ever reading about cajuns down in the bayous of southern Louisianna ever advocating teaching creole as a first or even second language.)
If you cannot speak English, then you are likely to misunderstand the language when you hear it.
These publicity whores [I use the term in a non gender specific manner.] are more interested in drawing attention to themselves than in righting any wrong they might preceive.
Fittingly they extinguish themselves once again as the irrelevant historical artifacts they have made themselves.
Get over it people.
There are still racists in the world, but Hallmark Cards is not one of them.
If these gems of cultured society want to address blatant racism at the highest levels of government then let them analyze the remarks of then U.S. Senator Joe Biden:
Feb. 2007 on Obama's appeal: "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean that's a storybook, man."
In the same hot 'mic' where Jesse Jackson expressed a desire to begin b.o.'s gender re-assignment by castrating b.o. he also used the word 'nigger'.
Just this past weekend I watched parts of a comedy fest sponsored by Shaquille Oneil and nearly every densely pigmented commedian threw around the term 'nigger' like they were chumming the waters for sharks.
I did not see one person in the audience, no matter what the density of their pigmentation display any offense or displeasure at what they were hearing. They were all too busy laughing.
[I was not laughing. Between 'nigger' and 'f*ck' and combinations and premutations of the two I just got weary of comdedianes resorting to vulgarities in lame attempts to elicit laughter, even if it was nervous laughter.
Though I did not see the right reverends Sharpton and Jackson in attendance I would be surprised if they were not there.
If they were viewing from the privacy of their own living room I am confident they were laughing as heartily as the Shaq.
We all recall the 'outrage when comediane Michael Richards used the term 'nigger' in one of his comedy routines. Jackson was one of the most outspoken critics of Richards.
These are not uncouth ghetto dwellers, socializing at the neighborhood barbershop or local 'stop and rob'.
These are the leaders of the 'race pimps' who lecture us about intitutional racism and fein indignance when any person sufferring from acute and chronic pigmentation shoud utter the word 'nigger'.
We can either remove the word from our lexicon or we can use it so caually that we become desensitized to it's sting.
What we cannot do is indulge the hypocrisy and duplicity of those who seek to take political advantage when it suits them and ignore it when it does not.Posted by: yor bro ken at June 15, 2010 5:29 PM
I work pt in a public school and the black men who work there use the nigger word and so do the kids...but if I were to say it...look out! I would be called a racist and a bigot and whatever else.Posted by: ann marie at June 15, 2010 5:50 PM
Hi Ken, 5:29PM
Have you heard some of the rap songs which refer to black women by some of the most vile names imaginable and that glorify acts of violence and degradation against black women?
Oh, and didn't Bill Clinton, sex offender extraordinnaire, not tell Ted Kennedy Obama would have been serving the Clintons their coffee the year prior to the election?
Let me see, didn't Harry Reid say something about "light skinned Negroes" and the "Negro dialect"?
Oh and let's not forget Dan Blather and his "watermelons" comment. Imagine if Sean or Rush had said the same thing.
Finally, why do we never hear anything about the "seperation of church and state" when it comes to those race hucksters, Sharpton and Jackson?Posted by: Mary at June 15, 2010 6:53 PM

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't OJ Simpson's defense team, while making much of the "racism" directed against OJ, ridicule the Chinese heritage of a prosecution witness? I recall no howls of liberal or MSM outrage over the very people decrying "racism" indulging in a little of their own.
WOW!!! It clearly said "Black Holes".
The sight of a group of NAACP activists straining to discern a Hallmark card, while an entire rap industry, aided, abetted, and promoted by BTV portrays African American women as bisexual wanton sluts...
Straining imaginary gnats, while their young self-immolate with the tacit approval of the greeting card crusaders.
A once-great people in free fall.Posted by: Gerard Nadal at June 15, 2010 10:19 PM
I always appreciate your ability to recall multiple examples of liberal hypocisy so expeditiously and so accurately.
Also, in my post at 5:29pm I left a word out of this sentence:
"These are the leaders of the 'race pimps' who lecture us about intitutional racism and fein indignance when any person sufferring from acute and chronic pigmentation SHORTAGE should utter the word 'nigger'."Posted by: yor bro ken at June 16, 2010 7:24 AM
I am sorry - but after watching Maafa21, I Can see how Black People get so offended. People - watch Maafa21, listen to how they are targeted with slick and deceitful ways. See how they were mocked and tagged by the eugenics crowds as "Stupid" Feebleminded" Unfit" , and "Morons" . I can understand why you are pointing out that the NAACP isn't really watching out for BLACKS when they allow a sitting Supreme Court Justice like Ginsburg to make such a racist comment (because the NAACP is in bed with the abortion lobby) and then they make a stink about Hallmark, that is a legitimate claim. But - let's not totally disregard their reasons for being suspicious. Maafa21 really set me straight on just how persecuted blacks have been and how targeted they really are. Let's be more understanding - make the point about the hypocrisy , but do not call them stupid. If you have not watched Maafa21 - please get a copy and maybe you will have the same outlook: http://www.maafa21.comPosted by: anonymous at June 16, 2010 9:12 AM
The NAACP used to be a great organization, but over the years, they've lost a great deal of credibility.
If people want to speak in African American Vernacular (the academic name for "Ebonics," that's their choice, but they are handicapping themselves.
I have been called the "n" word more times than I care to remember and I absoluTely HATE IT! I never let anyone use it (or any other racial slurs) in my presence!Posted by: phillymiss at June 16, 2010 10:07 AM
The NAACP used to be a fine organization but in recent years they have lost much credibility. As for African American Vernacular (the academic term for "Ebonics"), if people want to speak this way, then they should realize that they are handicapping themselves socially and economically. I've been criticized for "talking white." It used to bother me, but now all I have to say is a big, fat "WHATEVER!"
I have been called the dreaded "n" word in my life, more than a few times, and I absolutely HATE IT! I cringe when I hear black people use this word among each other. I am all for freedom of speech, but I do not allow anyone to use it (or any other racial slur) in my presence.Posted by: phillymiss at June 16, 2010 10:13 AM
Hi anonymous and phillymiss,
Its important to remember that liberals are always liberals first, and Jewish, black, hispanic, etc. second.
I have also noticed this liberal tendency to infantilize black Americans. We can't expect them to speak proper English, we must have forced bussing since black children need to be with white children, black people need big brother(government) to lead them and to help them accomplish anything. But this what gives race hucksters like Jackson and Sharpton a job.
In looking back at the legacy of Malcolm X the man made a lot of sense. Stop waiting for the white man's handouts and take control of your lives, which was pretty much his message. He was less militant and segregationist on his return from Mecca and was tragically murdered shortly afterward. The man had an important message whatever else one may think of him.Posted by: Mary at June 16, 2010 10:27 AM
Some people say the phrase "black hole" is racist. Check out what happened here in Dallas.Posted by: Jacqueline at June 16, 2010 10:20 PM
Jacqueline, those links (especially the 2nd one) made my jaw drop, and LOL.
Really, the stretch is astounding.
I suppose now we're going to sue Crayola. How dare they have a black crayon in that box. That is just racist.
I bet this guy has zilch to say about the rap culture with it's "n"s and "hos" thrown about all over the place, but a white guy he dislikes says the money is going down a "black hole" - well, look out!!
Seriously, I'm in disbelief here.Posted by: Kel at June 17, 2010 9:46 AM
I suppose that Pilot and other pen companies will only be able to make blue ink pens now? What about the term "-lack and blue mark" to describe a little bruise?
I heard black holes, not the other word! These people in Los Angeles need their hearing checked. Maybe they have some wax in them.Posted by: LizFromNebraska at June 17, 2010 10:23 AM
Oh, and NEWSFLASH to those protesting the very term "black hole": there's also another thing in space called a "white dwarf."
White dwarfs should surely unite in protest! Don't they know that term isn't PC??Posted by: Kelli at June 17, 2010 10:35 AM
White dwarfs should surely unite in protest!

Let's also be careful of such terms as "spic" and span, a "czechered" past, a "chink" in the armor,
"nip" and tuck, won't touch something with a ten foot "pole" and "gypping" someone. Give me a break.
I wish the NAACP would concern themselves with such things as black schoolchildren being gunned down in Detroit by driveby gangs. These gangs make the KKK look like rank amateurs.Posted by: Mary at June 17, 2010 3:52 PM
