Obama will “go back to cruel” on the next debate

My new pun “back to cruel” is how I describe what might be Obama’s weak attempt to get back on top of his campaign and win a second term–NOT. 

Just guessing that he will have to get cruel in order to stem the tide of fleeing undecideds or independents who can be SWAYED by a few well-placed words that ain’t coming out of Obama’s mouth no less.

It seems to me that Obama is retooling after being called out by every pol on the planet to say that his debate “nice” style sucked.  He was on the Tom Joyner show this morning lying through his teeth so that “ears later” he won’t still be talking about how this first debate sunk his presidency thereby making his sound byte a reality “Then it will be a one-term proposition.” 

Obama’s latest portrait of Romney sounds just like Obama. I have read everything out there about Obama in books including the new book about his mother.  It’s too bad he was the lesser of two evils back then.  It was fate what can you say that we elected an African and American to the WH. From what I’ve read his father, his biological father, because let’s face it Obama is a bastard, was a really cocky, asshole who killed himself after a night of drinking by hitting a tree while driving with two rods for legs which he lost during an earlier wreck.  

Barack, Barry Sr was an African.  His progeny therefore is NOT an African American in my books.  Maybe one day we will have a home-grown black man.  Until then we will just say we had a biracial in the WH for one term. LOL. I know I helped promote this man whom I said was not black or black enough from the getgo to his worldly apotheosis.  But that’s all folks.

Who is Cindy Brunson?

She looks a little like Halle Berry with the short hair.  But with long hair and some of her photos she looks white. But clearly she is biracial to me.  That is not unusual for a person to look white in some photos and not white in others.  I admit I don’t follow sports so this is news to me.  Who is she married to?

Josh,I’m coming up on 10 years here at ESPN this September. I’ve been a regular host on the weekend morning SportsCenter for a little over a year now. Before that, I would have spot fill-in duty on the late SportsCenter shows on the weekends.

This is the first that I’ve heard of this young lady who says she is not new to sports news.

She looks clearly biracial to me.  And since she is quite pretty we can add her to our list of biracial beauties in the news or reading the news LOL. I add the family photos below to show how a black person can look perfectly white and have no white parents or grandparents.  My kids have green eyes.  Some have now married whites and are having children with them.  The result: The creole marrying white have children who look Anglo Saxon white…see below. My brother’s son, my nephew, married a white woman and their baby has blond hair and blue eyes and white skin.  So Cindy’s looks are not unfamiliar to me.

Now some people are multiracial like myself. The difference being that I do not have one white and one black parent but look biracial and so do my children.  In some sense we look like typical Chicago blacks folks but we are not.  If Cindy were in New Orleans she would be mistaken for a Creole. My family is Creole which means we have Italian and French and Indian blood and African.  The African blood makes us colored Creoles. This is a unique post in that you have in one place three past life brother’s and sisters together again.

Elizabeth Warren: Is this woman Native American?

Elizabeth Warren, Chairman of the Congressiona...

Elizabeth Warren, part Native American or part liar?

This is not new.  If one of your parents is part Native American or full NA and one is white then you are a white person.   You can  also claim minority status if you can prove you have so much NA blood and it is documented somehow.  I had a friend once you actually had long blond hair, and a squarish nose and looks like Warren.  Her mother was half Cherokee or something and her dad was white.  They were white people but she could have claimed NA status if she wanted or her mother since she was fully one fourth NA.  Now if her mom had been black and NA she would be black unless she looked white, confused? Race is real.

Massachusetts senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren described herself in law-school professional directories as a Native American minority from 1986 to 1995.

The white Democratic candidate has so far offered no evidence that she is, in fact, part Native American, suggesting that she may have falsified that ethnic credential to advance her academic career in the early affirmative-action era. But “it is true,” a Warren spokeswoman told The Daily Caller on Monday, “and we’re working on digging up some sort of evidence to appease you.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolo_Jones

This woman looks like a typical Creole especially her coloring and eye color.

Lolo was named Lori at birth, after her mother, but started going by “Lolo, she says, in order to differentiate the two when telephone callers asking for “Lori” made the matter confusing. Though according to Lolo’s mother, “Lolo” is what she has called her daughter from birth.[1]

A 2005 graduate of Louisiana State University, she currently resides in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and is sponsored by Asics and Oakley. She is multiracial of French, Native American, African American, and Norwegian descent.[1] She is also actively involved in ChristianMinistry.[1][18]

Asian male shoots 9 and kills 6 students in Oakland (update)

— Nine people were shot at a California religious college Monday, and Oakland police “believe that six have been pronounced dead,” a police official said.

“We believe the suspect is in custody,” Oakland Police Sgt. Christopher Bolton said. “He was arrested in a nearby city.”

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2012/04/02/several-shot-inside-oakland-christian-school/

Police in nearby Alameda told KCBS that the suspected gunman was taken into custody at a shopping center in nearby Alameda about 12:20 p.m. His identity was not immediately released but he was described by police as a Korean man in his 40s with a heavy build and wearing khaki clothing.

According of its website, Oikos University is a Christian school offering studies in theology, music, nursing and Asian medicine.

George Zimmerman is white. Period

Flag of Hispanic America including also North ...

Even Breitbart.com got it wrong.  George is a white man. And yes Hispanics are white.  I think they are Asians who are mixed with European and Indian blood making them Eurasians but I have no say in the matter.

In case you missed it Hispanic is not a race but an ethnicity, an ethnic group.  The person from south of the border can be Hispanic and black or white.  In Zimmerman’s case, even with the fat jowls, he is a white man first and of Hispanic origin.

The federal government for some time now has classified Hispanics who look white and don’t have African roots or parents who are AA as white.  Even in cases here where the student clearly looks mixed with black they are still labeled as “white.” 

Move over white people you have the whole entire Hispanic ethnic group, who are not black, or don’t look black properly or improperly labeled “WHITE.”  So get over it.

The Trayvon killing was a white on black crime.

The Martin Murder: So much for a post-racial America

Did Martin call Trayvon an “F….ing coon?” see below from Huffpo:

Once again walking while black with a bag of skittles and lemonade is just cause to kill a young black boy named Trayvon Martin. A Jewish-Mexican, George Zimmerman, has shot and killed this boy with a 9mm with no freakin questions asked. He has gone scott free but the liberal media is hot on his trail.  In fact Morning Joe suggested that the whole police department should investigate the red necks in Florida and its stand your ground law.

The officials made the admission to ABC News after revealing that Zimmerman can be heard on a recording of one of the 911 calls made on the night of the shooting saying what some people think sounds like “f***ing coons” under his breath.

Moments later Zimmerman confronted Martin and shot him dead after a brief

My take so much for a post-racial America.

Rebecca Walker (biracial/Jewish): “Black Cool” new book

Black Cool: One Thousand Streams of Blackness

Nederlands: portret van Rebecca Walker

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebecca_Walker

Since her father is white most would say that makes her white as well.  Rebecca looks totally European much like Tracy Ross who also has a Jewish father. Hair type is also about the same.

Her dad is Jewish, not her mother. She had a baby boy out of wedlock with a married buddhist monk (black man married to a white woman having a baby with a biracial one) and found this tidbit:

Maybe this is useful. Rebecca’s mother was not “effusive” about Rebecca’s pregnancy not because she rejected the idea of a pregnancy, but because of who she was having the baby with: her Buddhist teacher who was already married and has a young child. What is a mother to do when it appears her daughter has entered into an odd threesome with a man whose prominence as a Buddhist teacher needs to be supported by the younger Walker’s fame (and income)? Needless to say, the senior Walker is skeptical of this arrangement. Choyin Rangdrol went from an Oakland Afrocentric denizen to an “International Buddhist” with the help of Walker’s pushing his book. And what of the white mother of Choyin’s other young child? Rebecca is so obsessed with competing with Alice Walker’s fame by airing her personal issues and neuroses in public, that she cannot see that she is the one who continues to alienate people with her obsessive narcissism. Most of us just get therapy. http://not-quite-sure.blogspot.com/2007/03/rebecca-walker.html

interview: http://www.thegrio.com/specials/life-and-style/book-interview-rebecca-walker-talks-black-cool-split-from-mom.php

Walker was born Rebecca Leventhal in Jackson, Mississippi, the daughter of Alice Walker, the African-American author of The Color Purple, and Mel Leventhal, a Jewish American lawyer.[1] After her parents divorced, she spent her childhood alternating every two years between her father’s home in the largely Jewish Riverdale section of the Bronx in New York City and her mother’s largely African-American environment in San Francisco, where she attended The Urban School of San Francisco. When she was 18, she decided to change her surname from Leventhal to Walker, her mother’s maiden name.

What I am reading now: “Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010” by Charles Murray

Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010
 

Coming Apart (you can get it at above Amazon link for $13.00) starts off just right.  Murray argues that American history can be divided into before JFK was assassinated and after JFK.  Interesting.  He provides many arguments why that is the case and I have to agree with him.  It was the visible dividing line for the cultural heating up of America and its economy and the beginning of the ultra rich in America that made black billionaires possible like Oprah.

I like the book because he does something that most books don’t do: he talks about the middle class (the white definition that would be rich for a black person) and what it means.  I love talk about money and economy and wealth.

I started out life middle class and was never one of the hungry who had to go to an Ivy school, even though I could have if I wanted to.  I married stupid and young.  My ex husband thought like his friends that being on welfare as a young, single black male in Chicago was no big deal.  In fact it seemed de rigeur for many. 

My family had never been on welfare or used food stamps and I did not know what it was all about.  He enrolled the family on welfare after we got married and I had my first two children thanks to the health care provided by the government.   We were on AFDC as it was called them for a few years.  After we divorced I immediately got a job.  Years later, I was a college dropout, I returned to college, graduated and got a real job and a real career.

Yes, I make more money than ever and have everything I want and need including a big house that I share with a gray cat, and a new silver gray Ford Focus that’s pretty good on gas.  It is possible for a single mother, former welfare and food stamp user to get a degree and live on their own.
