Media Questions Of The Week


1.Isn’t it sad that Australians think blackface is funny too because of the way they enslaved Black Aboriginal people the way America enslaved Africans? Although Harry Connick Jr. did a corny impression of a Black southern Baptist minister in tan make-up on MADtv wasn’t it still good that he checked the Australians for their racism?

2. How many conservatives, haters and racists will have a heart attack because Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize? Making him the sixth Black man to win it and the fourth president to get it?

“MTV, Thanx for this nod of appreciation,” Jay wrote. “Although I don’t strive to be ‘hot’ for any particular year, I thank you for the acknowledgment. My whole goal is to be recognized as the best ever. I created the term ‘best rapper alive’ as a sign of respect to my fallen comrades (Biggie and Tupac). I believe I’ve allowed a significant grace period, and I believe I would not be respecting myself if being the absolute best was not my goal, and that’s why I continue to push myself until exhaustion … salute.

“Sidebar: Kanye moment if I may … Eminem?!?! I think you do the credibility of this list a disservice if you don’t thoroughly explain his omission,” Jay continued. “As of this second he has the highest selling rap album of the year and a scene stealing verse on the best ‘posse’ cut of the year . (*Hands mic back to Taylor Swift … and nobody was harmed, I apologize in advance.)”3. Why did Jay-Z respond to MTV’s hottest MC list? And when he responded why was it to say that it was wrong to not include Eminem on the list?

4. How long will Mo’ Nique’s TV show last since many people feel that she is Amos & Andy reincarnated? And why does she think that A-list or any actors receive an appearance fee to promote their own films after being paid a salary? If she doesn’t care about the Oscar why doesn’t respect everyone who worked on the film with her? If Mariah Carey who is the third best-selling female artist of all times and the best-selling female artist of the ’90s who just dropped a new album can do the press duties why can’t Mo’ Nique?

What Harry did was not as offensive as what those so called “professionals” did on that variety show. I don’t think anyone outside the African American Community deserves to get a “day pass” to mimmick any black person. Harry’s response was correct and it appears that he has in fact EVOLVED as a person, not the doctors. Racism is really DOWN UNDER!!!
