I’ve been working very hard on Morning Star, so I haven’t been posting as much. Came across some brilliant posts from other blogs and thought I would share.
Over at What Tami Said is a brilliant analysis of the non-controversy surrounding Wanda Sykes’ performance at the Washington Correspondents Dinner. I love how she’s posted some of Limbaugh’s most vile comments and contrasts them with what Sykes’ said. Why is it that the only place you can find this type of analysis is in the blogosphere and The Daily Show?
Roland Martin is a big fat idiot. (Okay, let me rephrase that lest you think I’m talking about Al Sharpton. Roland Martin is a sanctimonious, sexist, self-righteous, absurdly full of himself windbag.) At What About Our Daughters you can check out Gina’s series about his suggestion that pastors refuse to christen or bless babies unless their fathers show up for the ceremony. Yep, his method for holding black men accountable actually consists of slut shaming and holding babies responsible for their father’s dickhead behavior. Shades of Brownmiller. Epic fail.
Siditty wants to know if this e-harmony ad means the bw/wm interracial pairing is becoming more mainstream. I’d say yes, if my book sales are any indication.
At Angry Black Bitch Shark-fu is pointing out the obvious about Dick Cheney’s recent media blitz(krieg).
They have this guy’s picture up at Aunt Jemima’s Revenge. Haven’t a clue who he is, apparently some hip-hopper. Anyway, there are other pics of him doing the stereotypical rapper gang sign crap. What a waste of the pretty. Anyway, he looks like a character I’d envisioned for Nate’s book, so I’m putting him up, and I’ll just pretend he’s not an idiot rapper.
