Gold Teeth, Cheap Clothes, and “Short Nappy Hair”

So once I thought Black History Month ended on a good note, I happen to come across some disturbing news that happened in California at UC San Diego.  A White Fraternity thought it would be funny to mock Black History Month by hosting an event called “Compton Cookout” where they would dress up as the many deragatory stereotypes of African Americans, hold up! It doesn’t stop there, they even posted the event on facebook and painted their faces brown.

I am not suprised that they would try to get away with this, the UCSD is 14% black and most of the students are predominately white and have no idea nor do they embrace themselves in African-American culture.  I feel that racism is still prevelant and its at its highest especially being that OUR president is now black.  The most hated race in America is the black race, period.  So many may find it suprising, but I’m not at all.  My brother who attends UC Berkeley which is one of the UC’s known for their protesting, had one today in honor of this ridiculous issue, called THE BLACKOUT.  I wish I was there to witness this because it’s not over.

Just think, if the circumstances of the black race were flipped, white people would not being having it.  What actions should UCSD take? We will soon find out.  But there is NOTHING that will make these kinds of ignorant people understand their wrong doing.

I dont even want to say anymore…Signing off.

Obama Poster Causes Uproar

49520832-27190556

This sign is of our President Barack Obama depicted as the Joker from the movie “Batman”.  This large sign hangs from Club Velvet in Shockroe Bottom which is located near Virginia Commonwealth University and the community is reacting to it. But who wouldnt?

I was really shocked when watching the 10 O’clock news and people were talking about how it is not racist and its not offending anyone; of course the NAACP retalliated and had a protest today in front of the club saying that it was racist and even community leaders are investigating the situation further.  There has to be a racist reason why some random club in a college area would want to put up a poster of our President like that. I mean we did some crazy things with Bush but come on, I feel that they are just a bunch of hick, kkk, haters that want attention.

If I had a say on this situation I would have them take it down because, first of all, it is billboard sized, and everyone has a freedom of speech but it should not be as big as a billboard, that’s just ignorant. And,  Obama is not similar to the Joker in any way shape of form.  He is not greedy and sneaky, nor is he trying to take over the world, we all know he is trying to SAVE IT!
