When Celebrities Come Out Of Their Mouth

Hillary Clinton has come under fire for her remarks about not quitting the race by invoking the memory of RFK’s assassination. CNN.com reports the following:

Earlier Friday afternoon, she told the editorial board of the Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Argus Leader that “My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it,” she said.”

When the the media GOT ON HER FOR THIS, she stated the following:

“Earlier today, I was discussing the Democratic primary history and in the course of that discussion mentioned the campaigns that both my husband and Sen. Kennedy waged in California in June in 1992 and 1968, and I was referencing those to make the point that we have had nominating primary contests that go into June. That’s an historic fact.”

“The Kennedys have been much on my mind in the last days because of Sen. [Edward] Kennedy, and I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation and particularly for the Kennedy family was in any way offensive. I certainly had no intention of that whatsoever,”

Obama’s camp called the comments, “Unfortunate.”

Her and her “facts.”

So Hil, what was the historical significance of your statement? And how did it relate to your current situation? This is what I got from it: “I don’t know why people want me to quit, there is a chance that one of my racist hillbilly followers from the Appalachian states might go and bust a cap in Obama’s ass. And if that happens then YOU ARE ALL STUCK WITH ME!” God, she is as desperate as the woman in The Brothers who tried to kill Shemar Moore for breaking off their engagement.

She knew exactly what she was doing. Anytime a leader in the country challenged the status quo, they get offed: Lincoln, JKF, Malcolm and MLK. And she knows that black folks deep down are secretly scared that every time Obama gives a speech that someone is going to kill him. And now she is giving people ideas.

Hillary, if you don’t want to drop out of the race, that is your business. If you like being 20 million dollars in debt and being dogged out on every news station all-day long and having your own supporters state on record that you should drop out, then ride this out to see how far it might take you–sad in June when Obama is named the Presidential nominee. But keep the word “assassination” out your mouth when referring to anything about this election if you are not talking about the possibility of your own assassination. This is not a game.

It kills me how so many other feminists still don’t see through this nonsense. If I get one more generic e-mail from feminists groups demanding that we fight against the media’s role in sexist attacks against Clinton, I am going to vomit. I would like to see a woman president in my lifetime too, but not one who has to win an election by using undermining racist remarks and feelings of entitlement, riding off her husband’s coattails and just plain breaking the rules to make that happen.

An editor friend of mine told me that her former female boss said, “I have tried to be nice people (A LIE), but it doesn’t get you anywhere, that’s why you have to be a bitch. It’s what all the top editors do. Being a bitch gets you what you want.” Too bad this nut along with Clinton don’t realize that people only tolerate a bitch because they have to, but they never respect one.


images-2.jpegOn XXL.com, DMX was interviewed by Clover Hope to discuss his gospel CD, his rap CD, his family and his thoughts on our next president Barack Obama.

Here’s an excerpt:

Are you following the presidential race?
Not at all.

You’re not? You know there’s a Black guy running, Barack Obama and then there’s Hillary Clinton.
His name is Barack?!

Barack Obama, yeah.


What the fuck is a Barack?! Barack Obama. Where he from, Africa?

Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
Barack Obama?

What the fuck?! That ain’t no fuckin’ name, yo. That ain’t that nigga’s name. You can’t be serious. Barack Obama. Get the fuck outta here.

You’re telling me you haven’t heard about him before.
I ain’t really paying much attention.

I mean, it’s pretty big if a Black…
Wow, Barack! The nigga’s name is Barack. Barack? Nigga named Barack Obama. What the fuck, man?! Is he serious? That ain’t his fuckin’ name. Ima tell this nigga when I see him, “Stop that bullshit. Stop that bullshit” [laughs] “That ain’t your fuckin’ name.” Your momma ain’t name you no damn Barack.

So you’re not following the race. You can’t vote right?

Is that why you’re not following it?
No, because it’s just—it doesn’t matter. They’re gonna do what they’re gonna do. It doesn’t really make a difference. These are the last years.

But it would be pretty big if we had a first Black president. That would be huge.
I mean, I guess…. What, they gon’ give a dog a bone? There you go. Ooh, we have a Black president now. They should’ve done that shit a long time ago, we wouldn’t be in the fuckin’ position we in now. With world war coming up right now. They done fucked this shit up then give it to the Black people, “Here you take it. Take my mess.”

Right, exactly.
It’s all a fuckin’ setup. It’s all a setup. All fuckin’ bullshit. All bullshit. I don’t give a fuck about none of that.

We could have a female president also, Hillary Clinton.
I mean, either way it doesn’t matter. I don’t care. No one person is directly affected by which president, you know, so what does it matter.

Yeah, but the country is.
I guess. The president is a puppet anyway. The president don’t make no damn decisions.

Well Barack has a good chance of winning so that might be something.
Good for him, good for him.

Ok look, I completely understand that many people in this country have distanced themselves from politics because they are tired of the corruptness of it all, the lying about weapons of mass destruction, institutionalized racism, policies that continue to widen the gap between the rich and the poor, etc–I GET IT! But this is just a disgrace.

Barack Obama has been on everything short of a Wheaties box: every magazine including VIBE, every television show, every newspaper, he has a MySpace account, all over YouTube, you name it. Even if DMX was flipping through the channels to get to BET, he must have come across Obama somewhere–HE IS THE ONLY BLACK CANDIDATE THAT EVER HAD A REAL SHOT IN HELL TO BE PRESIDENT.

It must be nice not to know shit or want to know. My hair is going gray because of this election, my mother’s nerves keep her up at night because she is so sick of all this Clinton nonsense and this crackhead has no idea who Barack Obama is. All of this work that we as black people are doing to make change and get ahead and this loser who gets dropped from his label, who is trying his hardest to stay relevant by coming out of his mouth

“Isa dunno nuffin ’bout no ‘Banana. Who that nigga be?”

Thanks for setting us back 175 years you coon.

Then he had the nerve to try to school folks on politics, like we don’t know how the system works. Well for those who don’t know how the system works, at least you know who Obama is.

The kicker of it all is the assertion that he would step to Obama. I dare this fool to call Barack Obama a “nigga” and tell him to stop “bullshitting about his name.” Obama would stomp his little ass and then make a speech about it that even FOX News wouldn’t criticize.

Some of us don’t need to be free, we really don’t. Yeah, I said it.

Do I need to say anything else?

Read Kenyon’s response to Nader trying to run for President.

In the newest issue of Latina, Beyonce was interviewed to discuss her all-Spanish rendition of her screamfest, B-Day. When asked was there there anything that she wanted her Latino fans to know, Beyonce responded with the following:

I would thank them for embracing me. I did radio (promotions) this morning for hours and hours and I noticed a big difference between speaking to all of the Latino stations and speaking to the pop stations or the other stations. With the Latino stations, there was so much love and everyone is so genuine. I’m just jealous that I wasn’t born Latina. I wish I had been because the culture is so beautiful. I’m very grateful Latinos are embracing me.

Dear Ms. Knowles,

Please stop with these lies. For starters, you are not jealous of anyone, partially because your father Matthew has made sure there is no one for you to be jealous of (Other than J-Hud and Rihanna)–either he has mismanaged your competition, dogged them out, or had them assassinated. Bey–as much as people want to hate on you–you are one of the best performers and one of the most beautiful people in the world right now despite being so OVEREXPOSED. You know how to put on a show, engage your audience, and dance your ass off, but at times you don’t know how to express yourself in a very intelligent manner. Which is fine to me, you are a singer not the White House Press Secretary.

But let me be honest with you; You don’t have to kiss ass by pretending to want to be Latina in order to sell albums or to admire their culture. Just do what I do: befriend Latinos, read about Latinos, visit historic Latino areas like Washington Heights or San Antonio, of sit in a Dominican beauty shop on a Sunday afternoon.

In your defense, I know how editors take things out on context, so you never really know what was said. But what irks me about you, is that we never learn anything new about you in interviews: we don’t know if you are a Democrat or not, we don’t know where you stand on gay rights, we don’t even know if you recycle, or if you prefer Pepsi or Coke. And to our dismay, this is what comes out of your mouth.

I love my brown sisters, don’t get me wrong. But Bey you don’t have to be so damn self-depreciating in order to express your gratitude to others. You are a black woman, don’t ever downplay that again.



P.S. Please purchase a Brita and place it on your mouth. START FILTERING WHAT YOU SAY IN INTERVIEWS.

In the September issue of the second most popular fashion bible, Elle, Oscar nominee and notorious bachelor Terrance Howard told his interviewer that the cleanliness of a woman’s vagina is a crucial factor in choosing a mate:

“Toilet paper – and no baby wipes – in the bathroom. If they’re using dry paper, they aren’t washing all of themselves. It’s just unclean. So if I go in a woman’s house and see the toilet paper there, I’ll explain this. And if she doesn’t make the adjustment to baby wipes, I’ll know she’s not completely clean.”

Dear Mr. Howard,

On top of debating whether or not I should purchase a long and luxurious Beyonce-style lacefront, worrying if I am light-skinned enough and being viewed as a “nappy headed hoe” every time I walk down Fifth Avenue, I now have to be consumed with feelings of guilt that wiping front to back is not enough.

Sir, I have a job, articles to write and New York rent to pay—I cannot worry about how my “Hmm mmm” smells all day, nor can I tolerate a lesson from you about what to use to stay fresh. Do you use wipes? Do your balls smell like clean linen? I think not. Honestly, that is what you should be concerned with.

Look, I understand that you are upset that your ex-wife refuses to take you back, and Halle Berry and Gabrielle Union won’t return your phone calls, but please stop taking out your insecurities and your anal retentiveness on the rest of us.

Remember who supported you with all of that “It’s Hard Out There For A Pimp” nonsense. Wait, that wasn’t me. Never mind.

Much love,
