Blah, Bluh, Or Black: It Was Still Racist, Rick Santorum!

You know, I’ve been wondering about just how will the GOP spin the new 8.5% unemployment rate per this week’s jobs report. Something tells me that they would say something to invalidate it like, “Obama passed out shoe shine boxes to Black people for Christmas,” or something racist like that. Given the way this week has been going with the ful blown racial dog whistles of Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich, it sure as hell wouldn’t surprise me. You better believe Sl;ick Rick and Newt would have something to say about Obama making the lives of  Black people better by giving them somebody else’s money. Well, then again, I might be wrong because according to Santorum, he never said anything racist or insulting about Black people a few days ago in Iowa. As a matter of fact, Santorum now contends that he never even said the word “Black” because of course, the word is racially offensive. Yeah, because the word “Black” rhymes with the word “Nigger,” right?  I don’t know what’s worse, y’all: saying something racist, or lying about saying it, as you defend yourself when there’s evidence to proove otherwise? At any rate, all of this is more par for the GOP course.

 

You Ain't Gon' Share With Me?

Now initially when I saw the avove segment on The Ed Show last night, I was pretty pissed off. I mean the nerve of this asshole lying about what he said. But today after waking up, I’ve found a new appreciation forr Santorum’s foolishness. You see, I try to find the good in everything, and I look at this as something positive. Yeah I know, there’s nothing positive that can come out of a racist comment like Santorum’s.

However, as the Black experience has evolved through American history. It’s good to know that we’re far removed from the old days of us just being “niggers” to where we’re no longer “Black,” but instead, here in post-racial America, we’re now “Blah.” I don’t know about you, but I like this new Blahness. So much so, that I’m looking forward to this year’s Blah History Month. You know what they say: once you go Blah, you can’t go back. Bring on the watermelon toss contest, and the fried chicken cook offbaby! To tell you the truth, I was getting tired of being Black anyway. But maybe that’s my inner Republican talking. But hey, it ain’t like we’s from Africa anyway; we’re all Blah people now. Shit, you better come on in, fool.  Like the homie @blah_people said on Twitter: Newt Gingrich & Rick Santorum watched The Help & The Blindside and got brave. I guess that’s what happens when you have a Blah president and you’re trying to replace him. Yup, who better to do for the lives of Blah people than a WHY man, right?

SAY IT LOUD!! I’M BLACK AND I’M PROUD!!!
