@tsayme "nah, he's celebrating, let him do him" What kind of new ***$$a nonsense logic is that? What is wrong with this site and Black people by extension. Everything gets a pass....."only God can judge me" rhetoric...why can't something be exactly as it is presented. Eastwood is a phenomenal filmmaker and no one can dispute that but his appearance at the RNC was coonery (Caucasian edition) at its finest. Generation Y folks appear to be excellent excuse builders....everything get a pass and no one is truly responsible for their actions. One can disagree with the President without "clowning" him the way "Dirty Harry" did.....
If we (and I'm being tribal here, folks....which I HATE to do) as a people are going to be competitive in this society, in the wake of the new world order, the emphasis on this neo-COONERY must cease. HOW MANY TIMES ARE WE GOING TO CONTINUE TO SUBSIDIZE AND/OR SUPPORT BLACK OR BROWN DYSFUNCTIONALISM FOR PROFIT? MTO, THE COURT SHOWS, TALK SHOWS AND RADIO PROGRAMS (STEVE HARVEY WITH HIS INSISTENCE ON USING COUNTRY GRAMMAR) CONTRIBUTE TO THE DISRESPECT THAT BLACKS ROUTINELY RECEIVE FROM THE LOWEST SECTORS OF BLACK COMMUNITY ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE. I SPEAK ABOUT AFRONERD RADIO CONSISTENTLY HERE ON MTO BECAUSE WE MUST COMBAT THIS PERCEPTION. SOME OF US REMEMBER WHEN WE HAD RESPECTFUL BLACK REPRESENTATION. IT MUST BE BY DESIGN THAT WE HAD HEROES RANGING FROM RUBY DEE, HARRY BELAFONTE, OSSIE DAVIS, PAUL ROBESON, DOROTHY DANDRIDGE AND SO FORTH TO NOW LIL WAYNE, NICKI MINAJ, WACKA, 50 CENT, NON ACTORS FROM "REALITY" SHOWS AND A WHOLE ROSTER OF NEO- MINSTRELS. WE WENT FROM CLEAN, ARTICULATE AND SOPHISTICATED BLACK REPRESENTATION TO NOW LAUDING OVER STREET BLACKS WHO COULD CARE LESS ABOUT HOW THEIR ANTICS PLAY OUT ON THE WORLD STAGE.
