Racist Ethiopian woman responds to comments on her rant about Black Americans 


Yesterday i posted a video of a Black American (ethiopian) woman who made racist comments against African American people. she said "nobody wants to be like Black Americans and dating a Black American woman equates failure". People responded to her video with outrage! She received so much negative feedback that she decided to respond to those who were offended by her comments.

She says she invited a Black American female friend over to her house to watch the video to get her opinion of the video... her friend became really upset at the video and called her a racist... the crazy part about this is... she seems to be surprised at her friends reaction, she's surprised that people are offended at her comments. It seems that this women actually didn't think she was being offensive in her generalizing ALL Back Americans the way she did.

She is attempting to slightly back track a little bit... she even gives us the honor of considering herself to be a "Black woman" (thanks for telling us what we already know). If you are expecting a heartfelt apology from this woman... sorry to disappoint you. this ain't it! she does attempt to soften yesterdays blow with comments like.
"i just wanna put out there... if i offended anyone, that was not my intent"
Check out her response.. let me know what you think. to see the originally racist video she posted that sparked this response CLICK HERE

Jim Jones - Crash (footage of his recent car accident). 


This song and Video of Jim Jones recent almost "deadly" Car accident is touching to me. He is VERY blessed to be alive and well. I wonder how this accident has effected his outlook on life? I can't help but think of my good friend who i loved deeply "Huddy 6" from Harlem who recently died in a deadly car accident on the George Washington Bridge (R.I.P).

I'm glad Jim and his friends survived. The part at the end where he is "face time" chatting with his child is touching also. for that feature alone... the iphone is a great phone to have. Check out the video and let me know your thoughts.

Ignorance: "Nobody wants to be like Black Americans, dating a black woman equates failure" 


I'm not sure what sparked this woman to go on a rant about Black Americans and black women in particular. It appears she is bothered by interracial relationships. She's getting LOT of attention online and INSIST her opinion is the opinion of all Non Black Americans. Its really sad to hear a minority Ethiopian woman who appears to be well spoken and educated yet very ignorant have this point of view on Black Americans.

She says Black women are not normal women, they are damaged and desperate and the most dangerous type of women to date. She say's Dating a black women equates Failure. She also says.. Black Americans are the lowest of the low and NOBODY aspires to be like Black Americans. Is she aware that she comes from a country that is the second-most populous nation in AFRICA? Furthermore... is she even aware that in the eyes of society, she IS a Black American Woman? SMH!

I'm not sure why this woman should be given the time of day... who is she? does her opinion even matter? is her opinion REALLY the opinion of ALL non-Black Americans in the US? Take a listen to what she has to say... then PLEASE read my thoughts below.



MY THOUGHTS:

NO one aspires to be like black americans... Oh Really? maybe she should tell that to the thousands of Medical students around the world who are studying to be surgeons like Dr. Daniel Hale Williams who was a African American cardiologist that is attributed with performing the FIRST SUCCESSFUL SURGERY on the heart... he also founded Provident Hospital, the FIRST non-segregated hospital in the United States (black owned & operated).

NO one aspires to be like black people? Maybe she should tell that to the MILLIONS of people around the world who buy Rap Music and try to imitate the Hip Hop community in every way from fashion, speech and lifestyle.

Maybe she should tell that to the MILLIONS of non blacks who voted for Obama to be President of the United States.

Maybe she should tell that to the thousands of kids outside the black race who aspire to be the next Michael Jordon or Kobe Bryant...

NO one aspires to be like Black American Women? maybe she should tell that to Oprah's most loyal core fan base who worship the ground she walks on..

Maybe she should tell that to all the Non Black women who are aspiring to run a Fortune 500 company like Ursula Burns who has been named the new chief executive officer of Xerox, making her the first African American woman to run a Fortune 500 company.

NO one aspires to be like Black Americans? maybe she should tell that to the MILLIONS of people from ALL races who sit in the sun for hours to make their skin dark, or the thousands of women of ALL races who get lip injections to have fuller lips and butt injections to have a shape that is natural to african american women... the list goes on.

Black people... God knows we do have our faults and we have and A LOT more work to do on bettering ourselves and our communities... as does many other races... but to say that African Americans are the lowest of the low and no one aspires to be like us is absolutely false.

Clearly this woman is VERY insecure, ignorant, jealous and VERY threatened by Black American women ...i'm not sure why her opinion should matter to anyone at all but i thought i would address it because she is getting A LOT of attention. SMH

Hip Hop Pioneer DJ Kool Herc Speaks Out... "this has been going on too damn long" 

 

Speaking via statement just days after making headlines for being hospitalized with kidney stones complications.. Hip-hop pioneer DJ Kool Herc states his views on health care. 

"We live in one of the superpowers of the world!" Herc said in a statement to MTV News on Tuesday (February 1). " 'Give me your tired, your poor ... ' and then you don't take care of them? There should be no weak ants in the colony. There shouldn't be anyone fighting for health care! This has been going on too damn long! We fought for 1520 Sedgwick to get landmark status, and in 2007, New York State officially recognized it as the 'Birthplace of Hip Hop'. Now we are fighting for health care not just for me, but for everyone. I see this situation as another quest for me to shine light on a sensitive issue for the community. I'm an instrument of God. I'm here for a purpose and I want to be here for the solution." (MTV) SOHH

 

Herc's situation again puts a spotlight on the need for health care — not just for celebrities, but for ordinary citizens as well. President Obama's recent health care reform is being challenged by the GOP-led House of Representatives, and some think the reform didn't go far enough to make coverage available to everyone. (via MTV)

MY THOUGHTS: i don't think any human being in a life or death situation should ever be denied treatment because they don't have health care or because their health plan doesn't cover the treatment. It's inhuman and unthinkable to just let someone DIE because they can't afford treatment. Where's the compassion for life?

Basketball wives Jennifer Husband Eric Speaks Out. "I dont give a rats ass how the show came out"

On if he felt as though he was portrayed negatively on the show

Listen, I don’t give a rat’s ass how that show came out. Everyone’s got an opinion. I’ve noticed in this world that bad guys are the ones that finish first. I relish to be the asshole of the year.

 

On whether he was ever in love with Jennifer since the cameras never caught any real chemistry between the two

Yeah, we were. In the beginning, things were great. There were a few infidelities here and there. We had ups and downs, but we didn’t get married until after I was out of the NBA. We had a lot of great times. It’s only been lately that things are going south.

Madea is back!!! Bow Wow & Laura London to star in Tyler Perry film "Madea's Big Happy Family" 


She’s baaaaaaaaaaack! I love Madea!

Tyler Perry has turned another one of his hit stage-plays into a full-length movie, and here is the official poster (released just moments ago) for Perry’s latest film “Madea’s Big Happy Family.” The movie stars Tyler Perry (as Madea), Bow Wow, Loretta Devine, Lauren London, Teyana Taylor and others.

And for all you “Madea” fans out there, Brown and Cora (played by David and Tamela Mann) will also be in the movie, along with Cassandra Davis (from “House of Payne”) who will play Aunt Bam (just like in the stage-play). “Madea’s Big Happy Family” hits theaters April 22nd.

Check out a short synopsis of the film below:

Madea (Tyler Perry) jumps into action when her niece, Shirley (Loretta Devine), receives distressing news about her health. All Shirley wants is to gather her three adult children around her and share the news as a family. But Tammy (Natalie Desselle-Reid), Kimberly (Shannon Kane) and Byron (Bow Wow) are too distracted by their own problems: Tammy can’t manage her unruly children or her broken marriage; Kimberly is gripped with anger and takes it out on her husband; and Byron, after spending two years in jail, is under pressure to deal drugs again. It’s up to Madea, with the help of the equally rambunctious Aunt Bam (Cassi Davis), to gather the clan together and make things right the only way she knows how: with a lot of tough love, laughter…and the revelation of a long-buried family secret. (Via: Wiki)

Stay tuned for the official trailer, which should be dropping ANY day now!
