George Bush Doesn't Care About Old People?

On Saturday, as I was walking out of the Post Office after mailing some letters, I happened to see a curmudgeonly old man senior citizen with a cane walking up the steps. As he slowly makes his way toward the building, I decided to hold the door for him. The senior citizen then looks at me . . .

Cranky Senior Citizen: [yelling] Did George Bush closed down the Post Office?!
ME: Nope.

SC: Thank God. If I ever see Bush, I'm going to cut his f**kin' throat that sonofabitch!
ME: Okay? [raising my fist] Fight the power.
SC: You goddamn right, sonny!

Ahhhh . . . you gotta love it.


Black No More?

Rap writer/critic A-Plus recently penned an editorial announcing that "He Doesn't Want To Be Black Anymore."

His reasoning:

"In this day and age, everything of, related to and about Blackness, Black culture or being Black in any positive light has been reduced to a pile of ash and rubble.

Who is to blame you ask? The niggas. Yes ladies and gentleman, the Black race is dead and the niggas have run amuck. BET looks like a scene from Dawn of the Dead and the Black faces might as well be wearing blackfaces (if that went over your head, do a Google search for "minstrel shows").

For every yin, there’s supposed to be a yang, but somehow, the niggas (with some help from unnamed sources) have found a way to bring about the worst in us . . . 100 percent of the time. I must say that I am forced to applaud their tactics, as even some of the harshest critics of nigga culture have been reduced to saying, "it's not that bad.

Sorry to burst your bubble of comfort and euphoria, but it IS that bad. The niggas are driving the bus and the Black folks are tied up in the trunk.

A-Plus then offers his "Nigga Hit List" of rappers -- including Young Jeezy, Ying Yang Twins and others -- who he deems are making a mockery of African-American culture with their coonery and demeaning images.

Which begs a question . . .

Had there ever been a time when you wish you weren't Black (or African-American)?

Racism is a bitch, folks. It can fuck with your head sometimes.

But for A-Plus, it looks like his issues are with the music and the "minstrelsy" on BET.

But I think the problem is way more bigger than what's on BET.

What do you think?


Hoopz Dream

Flaaaavor Flaaaaaav!

Is it me or is Flavor Flav's reality series Flavor of Love shaping up to be a really good show? I don't know why I love this dumb show so much. But this past Sunday's episode of FoL was very good and I'm still rooting for my girl Hoopz to win it all. Now Hoopz has been playing it safe since the show started, but on episode #3, we saw more of Hoopz's . . . err . . . personality.

I also believe that Hoopz has some lesbian tendencies in her, too. I was wrong. My eyes were deceiving me. Hoopz is all hetro. (No Homo, if you will.)

But if Hoopz doesn't play her cards right with Flav, she's going home next week.

And I'm still in awe that all of these girls are so enamored with Flavor Flav. Contestant Serious, who was booted off the show, said that Flav was an "intellectual." WTF?! And Red Oyster needs to stop snitch'n -- that shit is getting on my nerves. And Sweetie is not sweet on Flavor Flav, so I expect her to be gone by next week, as well.

I also think that Hottie is one dillusional H.A.M. She said that people have told her that she looks like Beyoncé. Yeah, right . . . more like Barney.

In other Flavor of Love news, blogger Ms. Foxxxylove -- who did an excellent job recapping episodes #1 and #2 -- was able to gather personal information on all of the female contestants on the show, except for the bitchy diva New York and a few others. [WARNING!] I'm not going to directly link to her post because THEY ARE SPOILERS EVERYWHERE! She even posted the presumed winner of the show. So, if you don't want to know who will win it all, I would hold off reading her post. [WARNING!]

All of the ladies are either models, struggling singers or actors. So it is quite evident that these girls don't give a damn about Flavor Flav. To these ladies, the show is a stepping stone to further their careers and/or extend their 15 minutes of fame. And I also believe that these girls are not getting paid to come on the show. Hell, I wouldn't pay any of these ladies to wash my dishes for me.

But I'm still going to watch! LOL! Hey, Flavor of Love is great entertainment on a boring Sunday night. So, I'll take it.

Flaaavooor Flaaaav!


Do the Rodeo

"Let me see you work that, twurk that, serve that/ C'mon and do the rodeo/ Let me see you bounce that, move that, do that/ Let me see you do the rodeo . . . " -- Juvenile, "Rodeo"

This lovely lingerie/swimsuit model calls herself "The Stallion" -- and she's truly a thoroughbred chick.

Peep homegirl's measurements: 36C-27-42. Woo-wee! Elke is originally from Germany and has been modeling since she was 14 years old. Now some of y'all may recognized her from various music videos on BET.

The curvaceous vixen made cameo appearances in 50 Cent's "Disco Inferno" visual and more recently, dancing in Mobb Deep's "Have a Party" video. She's currently looking for print and television work. You're hire!

Holla at cha boy! Yessir. You can check out Elke's sexy photos right here.


He's Baaack!

The Shield -- the best cop drama on network television returns for its 5th season tonight on the FX Network at 10 p.m. ET.

I totally love this series! The acting, the writing and the directing on this show are top notch.

Watch it tonight . . . and get addicted. It's crack television, fo' real.
Even TV critic Frazier Moore agrees with me.

And keep tabs on the 5th season's story lines via journalist Al Barber's indispensable fan page.

Oh, boy . . . I can't wait.
