The only thing rich people fear, is being turned into poor people

I was asked today what I feel about this "controversy" surrounding Paula Deen.

I replied that I could give a shit about her and her "controversy". I replied that this did not surprise me at all. I did not support her before her little "slip" of the tongue and I don't plan on supporting her now. I don't see how anybody would. This woman has made millions selling "comfort" food....IE... food with high calories, high cholesterol levels, high sugar content and everything else that is killing off Americans by the thousands every year..especially Black and poor Americans. And she has admitted  to having type 2 diabetes her damn self...probably from eating her own shit; So no.. I have never supported her.

It just surprises me that people are surprised by her choice of words when she didn't think the cameras were rolling. She is an OLD.... SOUTHERN..... WHITE..... Woman. She grew up around people that threw the word Nigger around like a Frisbee. That's what she knows. That's who she is. That's what the people that are in her circle do. So what did people expect? Is she a racist? I don't know. But it damn sho looks like that any  person that looks like me would not get invited to Thanksgiving at her house unless I was doing the serving, the coat checking or if I was parking her real invited
guests Maybach's.

But it is her American right to call a nigger a nigger if she wants to. She is protected by the sacred constitution to do so. The constitution does not say that freedom of speech only applies if what you say does not offend anyone. So let her put her foot in her mouth. It is her God giving right. Now having said that..I have to say this...

Don't support her dumb ass. Don't watch her shows..don't buy her cookbooks..don't go to her restaurants...don't give her any of your little jigaboo money.

That is our right as Americans. We don't need to march and protest and hold Internet polls.

Just... don't... support... her.

Hit her in her pocket. That is the only thing rich people understand. Money.

So don't be surprised that another "respected" asshole in our Country let out their little secret. There will be another one next week....Just be glad that they finally decided to cut their lawn so the snakes can be seen.

I am 40 years old..and these kids today make me feel every second of it.

"How many drinks will it take for you to leave with me? Girl I got money, but I ain't trying to waste time."

Just marinate on that for a minute.

I got a question....Is this what the young people are calling a pick up line now?

The above mentioned verse is the hook for a "R&B" song that I heard on the way to work this morning.

Seriously? This is the new hotness in the land of teens and twenty-somethings today?

Damn..I'm getting old.

In my day, saying this to a female in the club would have gotten me slapped and embarrassed in front of my guys.

Hell...this line would get me slapped and embarrassed today if I choose to go up to a female and spit this bullshit.

What happened to...."Hi. How are you doing this evening. My name is Dirty Red. I was noticing how you are dancing in place to this song. Yeah.. It is the jam. Would you do me the honor of allowing me a dance?"

Or.."Hello. How are you doing tonight? Do you like this song playing now? Would you have any objection with joining me on the dance floor while the DJ is spinning it?

Or even this..." Hi. Would you mind if I gave you a compliment? Well, I think you are a very nice looking woman and I noticed how you were swaying to this song right here and I was wondering if you would let a brother like me escort you to the dance floor so that we can groove to it together."

But this bullshit "How many drinks before you leave with me shit," Seriously?

Is this what we are teaching our young men? And our young women..is this supposed to just make you gush all over with excitement? What kind of young lady that has any type pride about herself would fall for some bullshit like that?

These cats these days have no clue how to talk to a woman. Everything is bitch this..Hoe this..Give me that pussy...Pop this Molly..Drink this..

Its nauseating. What's even worse is that the young women of today are allowing it.

There are no rules in this generation of young people. I am pretty sure my Parents and Grandparents said the same thing about our generation...but today?

We are in trouble son .

Your EX is just that..Your EX

This morning on my way to work, I heard some shit that got me to thinking.

Question....

If you and your significant other broke it off...is it cool for your friends to still be cool with them or even hook up with them?

In my opinion..yes it is cool. And here is why I think so.

1. The person is your EX. That means that you have no power on who they choose to hang or be with.
2. The person is your ex for a reason. You obviously want nothing else to do with them, so why hate on the fact that someone else does?
3. If your friends have seen what you went through with your ex and they want to get a taste of it too..then a hard head makes a soft ass.
4. Just because you and your ex didn't work out..why hate on the fact that they might hit it off with someone they knew just as long as they have known you? They could have been in the books all along and you were just in the way.
5. And last but not least..Get over it.

Now the only problem with this is, is if your ex is your ex because of your friends.....then maybe you need to reevaluate your "friends".

In my opinion jealousy is a wasted emotion. It makes no sense to be jealous of anyone. 9 times out of 10, the person that you are jealous of probably could give a fuck whether you are jealous of them or not.
So why waste your time thinking about what someone is doing, who they are doing, what they are wearing,  what they are driving or where they are living? Again...9 times out of 10 their lives ain't as Cadillac as you think it is. They are probably just as fucked up as you are.

So in my opinion if your ex ends up getting with or staying friends with some of your partners...then don't hate...congratulate.

There is a major shortage of Love in this world as it is.

You don't like me? And?

There is a Cheerios commercial out now that depicts an obviously mixed race beautiful little girl with a White mother. The little girl is inquiring about the health benefits of Cheerios for the sake of her father. I thought it was a very good commercial. But....

There was a lot of racist backlash concerning the commercial. It ranged from my reaction, that it was a cute commercial, to the mother would soon be a single parent if she wasn't already, since the father was obviously Black, to why is the mother white; whats wrong with a black woman playing that part...yada yada yada.

And this is supposed to a "post-racial" society..

Yeah...I'll wait on that.

Racism goes both ways. I know some racist ass Black people, racist ass White people, racist ass Mexican people, racist ass Asian people and recently I met some racist ass Native American people. So racism knows no color.

We are all biased in some way. I know I am. I see nothing wrong with anyone being proud of their heritage. If your heritage includes being a southern redneck, then you should not be ashamed of that. Same thing applies if you are a Northern "Yankee".  I would not have a problem if someone started a "White Entertainment Television" or started a magazine called " Ivory". I would not have a problem with a "White History" month.  I know why we (Black people)have all those things; since we were not included in anything (Black people)
back in the days...we were supposed to be seen cleaning, singing and dancing but nothing else..so we had to show pride in ourselves by doing it ourselves, but I still would not have a problem if some White Person decides to start up something like that. Be proud of who you are. Wear that shit proudly son.

 My problem comes into play when you use your pride to degrade and dismiss others.
White people are not superior to me. No race of people is superior to me. I am not superior to any other race of people. We are all fucked up together.

But I am proud of being Black. I do gravitate to the "Black table", if I go out somewhere. I do relate better with people that look, talk and act like me.  I am very sensitive to things that I consider degrading to my culture and my people. I expect other people to do and feel the same. That does not make me a racist. It makes me HUMAN.

I will not lie and say I do not see color; because I do. Of course I do. But I don't let color stop me from seeing the HUMAN that is wrapped in that color. I do not like everybody and I don't try to appease everybody. I say what I mean and I don't make bullshit ass apologies if what I say offends anyone. Apologies are for things that were mistakes. If I mean what I say; there is no mistake. If I voice my opinion and it offends you...then you can count the fingers on a double hand amputee and that will tell you how many fucks I give.   But....

If what I say is taken the wrong way and it really hurts someone..then I will apologize and I will (try to)explain my position; because to hurt is not my intention.  But....

Sometimes it is my INTENTION to hurt someone..and if that is the case; refer to the last sentence of the paragraph one sentence above this one.

Racism will always exist. It is an ingrained HUMAN flaw. People will always find something about someone else to hate. That's just who we are. But the hated on cannot let others hatred of them stop them from achieving whatever it is they are trying to achieve. Racism is not an excuse to stop living...it should be an excuse to let your nuts drop and fight back.

That is all.
This has been a Dirty Red Public Service Announcement.
