Lemon's A Fruit!

CNN News Anchor Don Lemon 

Wow Jaycee! Juvenile title to this post huh? 

Yeah, it was. Funny though huh?  Ok, CNN Don Lemon "came out "to the Public at Large.  To some this is a big freakin deal but not to me.  See, I don't care about Mr. Lemon's sexual orientation in the least.  I care if Mr. Lemon reports truthful and accurate news period! I watch him regularly and I believe that he does.

Don Lemon true show of courage is that he faced his own self and he was honest about it.  He probably had to tell his Mama and Grandma at some point and it could not have been easy.  He has probably endured many a church sermon about how "Homosexuality is a sin!, yada yada, hell fire, yada. 

That's not an easy life.  Your life, your definition of love is disputed, your attractions judged and worse politicized.  

With all the folks at every end of the spectrum writing about this I will offer this one piece of advice to Mr. Lemon.  Stand up and have courage! This is your chance to talk about some real ish to some real people about something that we all have to deal with on a daily basis. And don't let those political pricks including those SO Called Gay Activists co-op you or your celebrity.  They would "Out" you in a second even though you may have chosen to keep your personal life "Private". Well, now the cats out of the bag! 

Use it for positive change and I hope that it brings you peace. Hell, now you can help someone else who may be in dispair and suffering about who they are and how they feel.  This is a good thing.  I'll let God be the judge on your life and the way you live it but I know that God hates lies and liars.  Stand up and BE truthful!  But let's make sure that the most important thing in all this is not lost.....YOU BETTER NOT STOP REPORTING GREAT NEWS! 

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

Common....A Threat????

I watched a clip of Jon Stewart the "Daily Show" talking with Pundit Bill O'Rielly about his opposition to Rapper/Poet Activist Common's invite to the White House for all things performing poetry.  Seems that Mr. O'Reilly is an avid listener (Sarcasm) of Hip Hop Music, having gone after Ludacris some years back for having been a drug dealer, got Pepsi to pull their commercials with him as a feature.  This time, he points out Common's "Song for Assata." Bill O'Reilly asserts that Common is celebrating a "Cop Killer" and that the White House should not invite him based on that. Funny how he didn't point out that Common also speaks out against Abortion on his "One day it will all make Sense" album.

"Musta really thought I was God to take the life of my Son, I turned your womb into a tomb"

Common's "Song for Assata" does NOT celebrate a "Cop Killer"! Assata Shakur formerly Joanne Chesimard was a Black Panther and Black Liberation Army member. She was "convicted" on flimsy evidence and escaped from Prison. She last resided in Cuba.  Hey Right Wing, there are alot of People, Black Folks in particular who BELIEVE that Assata is INNOCENT of the crime.  She is left handed and the EVIDENCE points out that the Officer killed was shot by a right handed person.  The EVIDENCE points out that Assatas left arm was injured at the time of the shooting. Buts let's not let a little thing like EVIDENCE or INNOCENCE get in the way of the killing of an AGENT Of THE STATE!

Guess what Right Wing Political believers, this may be hard for you to stomach but guess what???


(Whispered) "Afrikan American People have their own definition of patriotism! Afrikan Americans have their own history that is both intertwined, interlaced and interlocked with yours but it is unique and distinctive.
America has been at war with the Afrikan America since before there was an America.  It was J. Edgar Hoover who allowed the programs like Cointelpro and Project NU MAN to proceed against American Citizens. Those Afrikan Americans ARE Americans and they had rights.  J. Edgar Hoover was at WAR with the Afrikan American community and he used his intellect, his muscle and the power of the American Government to disgrace, frame, discredit, jail and kill Afrikan American Citizens.

There are hundreds of Afrikan American political dissidents, Black Liberation Army, Black Panthers, United Slaves and other groups that have had their leadership and membership harassed or murdered by their own Government. Geronimo Ji Jaga Pratt spent 30 years in a California Prison including six months on Death Row for the murder of a Santa Monica School teacher when the FBI states in the COINTELPRO papers they knew he was in Oakland at the time of the murder.  Marshall Eddie Conway still lives in prison in Maryland because of the COINTELPRO program. 

Sorry, my Right wing European American Brothers and Sisters but America does not fight fair and didn't and Black Folks do not, will not and can not take your word that everyone who is CONVICTED in the American Justice system received an unbiased, fair trail.  Assata Shakur is one of them.

The Obama's did a courageous thing bringing Common to the White House. Mr. Obama showcased American Freedom of Speech, American Freedom of from persecution due to Religious, Creed or Political belief and showcased that American Citizens have the right to disagree and criticize it's Government.  Common is doing just that by fighting for Assatas right to a fair trail, which she has not received and for her innocence. 

Shame on you Right Wing and Bill O'Reilly for criticizing the PRESIDENT for actually Living by the principles America says it's about!

Really? Newt Gingrich is your Solution for America?

The economy is still in the toilet, and high gas prices definitely harken back to the 70's when President Carter was President. This is a problem for "Bam Bam" or President Obama, for all y'all that don't know him like I do.  Me and "Bam Bam" are tight!

President Obama since he has been elected has gotten a Health Care Reform bill passed.  President Clinton attempted it but couldn't do it.  President Obama and the Democrats have gotten with some partisan cooperation the Banking Reform bill passed. President Obama has found and killed Al Queda Leader Osama Ben Laden!

YAY! Happy Dance! Whooo Whoooooo! Oh Yeah!

The Republicans on the other hand instead of creating jobs, have sought to pass legislation that checks BIRTH Certificates and Nationality cause that is AMERICA's most pressing problem.  Republicans have responded to America's Obesity problem by criticizing the First Lady Michelle Obama (With her fine azz)  for planting an organic garden on the White House lawn and for leading an exercise program and calling her FAT!

The Republicans bombarded America all year with Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter and the DONALD got into the act confirming what we all suspected but didn't want to confirm that not only is the DONALD a Narcissistic Idiot Jerk Off but also that he's just an IDIOT! 

But with High Uunemployment, Home Fforeclosures, High Fuel prices, the Japan Nuclear Disaster, and several homemade disasters due to our failing Infrastructure, ie the levees, bridges et al.



No, really.....I'm serious! That's your solution! Newt Gingrich??? America's been affected by one disaster after another so what do you suppose sending Newt will do? What you gon cancel out one disaster with an even bigger disaster???

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!
