crime doesn't pay
I find it rather ironic that Michael Jackson is gracing the cover of Ebony. EBONY!
Hell, he's whiter than I am and I'm whiter than Elmer's Glue.
I was watching a bit of Star Jones this afternoon and she was talking about Dog's apology on Sean Hannity's show.
She gave him credit for apologizing then asked why he did it to a white person. This is what pisses me off. An apology is NEVER ENOUGH.
There is always a qualifying "but" attached to it.
Now let's see how many more apologies the African American community try to get out of him, as in the case of Michael Richards and Don Imus.
I, for one, find it hard to believe that a man his age has no clue as to the harsh connotations of that word, but--and here's MY qualifying 'but'--he did apologize.
Let it fucking go already. As long as the African American community continues to use this word in
their every day speech and music, how can they expect other people to stop using it?
Now they're saying "nigga" as if that's some sort of cool, acceptable version of the word for THEM to use.
Things won't change as long as they continue to employ double standards.
Well, isn't Prince just a stand up guy?
These celebs get so damn cocky and full of themselves.
