The Sandra Bland Arrest

by MullOverThis

The dashcam footage which has been released can be “read” both ways.

With the greater onus on law enforcement, it is clear that this arrest did not have to take place, was a play on authority, and should not have happened. It is also extremely possible that this arrest is NOT illegal, although it is textbook bad police work.

Wait A Few Cotton Picking Minutes

Cotton picking minutes are still minutes.

It’s just that these kind of minutes are hard and longer minutes to those who pick cotton, or understand the intensity of working in bondage and heat as captives.

Rachel Dolezal is under fire for identifying herself as part Black. She has assumed the identity of a Black woman and all of a sudden, this is a problem.

Now, when mixed-race people identify themselves as part Asian, or Tiger-Woodish, they are self-hating Black folk. Tiger Woods is NOT Asian! Not when he looks at the Asian momma who raised him, as Asian as she is and as Asian as her womb was when she pushed him out. He’s Black because he has dark skin and his daddy is a Black man. His racial identity has to be Black, regardless of his reality and environment.

The Mariah Carey’s and Halle’s of this world “better” not think they are White or Caucasion by the historic iota of a drop of Negro blood legal roots and its corresponding imprint in cultural norms to define a person’s race. Some social constructs have chains with locks that work to bind and to free depending upon the agenda. Don’t deny your heritage, and don’t identify with another when folks died for you to be who you are based upon your identity.  Whites and Blacks both seem to take issue with people who are “visibly” Black and want to think of themselves as anything other than Black. Self-hatred and Sell Out mentalities are the next in line notions, aren’t they?

What exactly is the problem here? This woman’s parents identify themselves as Caucasions. It logically follows that all of their natural born children ARE White and should identify themselves as such. Of course it does. And it historically, educationally and culturally follows that Africa is the “mother” of civilization. These same Black folks who have a twisted chip flavored with a mesquite bitter root Black bark on one shoulder conveniently forget the other shoulder’s claim–with strength I might add–that Black people are the ones who White people come from anyway. Illogical, contradicting weights on shoulders has to make a person tired. Real tired. And, dizzy. Black definers just may want to sit down and catch thy heads and thoughts, and bring them to an equilibrium so we can at least know who is truly qualified to be culturally, ethnically, socially or racially Black in America.

A professor who has studied and now teaches Black studies should espouse her motherland heritage. At what point in her lineage does she get to chop off her motherland roots head and Blackness from her forefathers and foremothers? Do the same intelligencia, comics and commentators who call Negroid, Black, Colored, or African American people sell outs because they don’t speak with an urban vernacular, they aren’t Black, even though they are very Black, get the privilege to set the point? No, Rachel can set it for herself. She is qualified.

Oreos aren’t Black.

Sell outs aren’t Black.

People who don’t agree that Mike Brown could not have been shot in the chest while running away from cops or keep his hands up with multiple gunshot wounds, aren’t Black.

People who don’t want to use #Blacklivesmatter hashtags ONLY when crimes against Blacks committed by Whites take place, but notice Black lives in black body bags when Black folks kill or maim each other aren’t Black.

When Black people aren’t Black, and White people aren’t Black unless it’s time to argue that Jesus is Black and civilization began with Negroids producing all spectrums of skin-colored human beings, it seems to MullOverThis that its high time for Rachel to be Black.

She has been passing or legitimately Black for years. Her record for passing isn’t nearly record-breaking; she would have had to have been like her Black sisters who passed for Whites for years because they wanted the privilege of being free and enjoying “White privilege” and sheer freedom when their darker-skinned blood didn’t have this shade-bred option.

Since most Black people think the NAACP is about Negroidism as opposed to working to advance the equal rights of all people in America with commitments to work for those who cannot represent themselves and have been historically underrepresented and oppressed, the front man and now “woman” is supposed to be Black. Well, she is Black by many standards of what constitutes “Blackness” when ignorance is bliss and an operating welcome mat from the most educated and prolific to gin and juice drinking Black people in America is placed at the Black front door.

Anybody who’s down with the cause is usually Black, right? If it isn’t, when did that change?

Her regional NAACP presidency is not reserved for Black people. It’s reserved for qualified people: the same kind of qualified people who began the NAACP who were not Black and were Caucasion. The board of the NAACP looked like the Civil Rights movement constituency: Black, White and people who were committed to equitable human rights in America for all people.

So, Mrs. Rachel, welcome to the table you’ve been setting with advocacy and education while critics have been upgrading remote functions to yell at flat screen televisions and pick their nostrils. People who are about that life don’t really care how you identify yourself or if your mama stepped out with Mr. Bill, or not.

The Puerto Ricans who have never been to Puerto Rico and identify themselves with their culture won’t ever undergo such scrutiny; Neither would any legitimate Black person who had White enough skin to pass and was raised among a bunch of White children and naturally saw herself as the same.

Rachel, if your racial classification is a lie on the basis of social constructs, the acknowledgement of the evolution of the human race to produce these constructs is a lie. I’m quite confident that you don’t convince yourself that you are one of “them” when you look at your husband, children or siblings who look just like you.

You are Black enough for me and many other women who were born to a White parent and had to dilute Whiteness–as if that is the pure standard–and be deemed Black or other. Whatever you consider yourself to be, be that and work for the equality of all people.

If Ann Coulter gets a weave with red and pink strands, we will have to re-write civilization.

On Ann Coulter & Bring Back Our Country

by MullOverThis

Ann_Coulter_2012_Shankbone_4

I’m all for freedom of speech.

I’m not concerned about the fact that Ann Coulter is popular.

Most people who oppose her on the basis of her typical disregard for those who are not her kind cloaked in brash legalese and seeming care for this country, are “over” her.

As I woman, I’m not even concerned about the fact that her neck is extremely unbecoming to our gender and the tossed hair look is old and tired like…Well, in spite of her typical nastiness in the name of patriotism, to view Ann often requires us to view torrid broken hair.

People have asked when did she lose her soul. Here’s a more poignant question: When did she ever have one?

Ms. Coulter, who has been genetically pre-disposed to Whitey privilege masked with elitism, is an interesting creature among us. See, Annie Pooh thinks that right-wingism disguises the real essence and worth of her being. The thing about her kind is that they are often vocal about the ills and pangs of having to live among the left, those who we are supposed to believe are largely responsible for the continual degradation of America.  It’s an extremely interesting notion and thought process when human refuse wants to represent the standard of a good American and chime in as much as she possibly can on the actions of others while we cannot comprehend anything past the stench of what comes out of her mouth.

I’m so glad America is so much bigger than the journalists who are allowed to interview Annie Pooh again. Talk about privilege! What will the rest of the media do without access to one ANNE COULTER? She must be bigger than the font in caps you just read, in her mind.

This nation is full of people who understand that we exist as part of a global community and to be in support of the Bring Back Our Girls campaign is our obligation. With all of Annie Pooh’s upper crust life ingredients–an ivy league degree and an attorney with an impressive career–you would think that she had a modicum of common sense, wouldn’t you? Terrorism. Lawlessness. Mass kidnapping. Murder. Rape. Has she paid attention to international affairs? This was not the “time” to spoof off BBOG to bring attention to her right-wing agenda. It was tasteless but only people with taste buds would know that.

Oh, and if you want to know why Ann is Annie, I can’t help but grin and call a child trapped in a woman’s body something a bit more endearing and applicable to such an infantile blabbermouth. All of the best selling books she has will not change the fact that those who are not her kind will always exist and give her something to yap about.

In all things, I try to glean some learning experience. From this blog, I will test the hypothesis that human taste buds are connected to the soul.

More Sippy Sippy of the Woe Is Me Black Man Juice

by MullOverThis

Now, I at least try to be impartial and read some of these news stories with a modicum of objectivity.

Is this dude bananas?  (Question to be answered at the end of this post.)

American Idol discriminated against him on the basis of the fact that he is a black man, allegedly, as this clown joins a lawsuit.  Are we to believe that American Idol contestants have all sorts of questionable charges in their backgrounds and when it comes to Black folk, they start to enforce sound business acumen?  Does anyone else think that the show’s staff would be riddled with idiocy if they did not eliminate someone who had the potential to win along with the potential to have a bunch of legal interventions attributable to having 11 outstanding arrest warrants?

Let’s do the math to help paint the picture:

1. A warrant.

2. Another warrant.

3.  Another warrant on top of that.

4.  More than the warrants before.

5. Yup, there goes another warrant.

6. Warrant again.

7. They just keep coming…arrest warrant.

8. State of New Jersey busy with warrants for man who wants career to be spring boarded from American Idol, BAM another warrant.

9. Warrants galore.

10. Excessive warrants.

11.  Unbelievable amount of arrest warrants.

Some people live an entire lifetime without an arrest warrant. This dude wants to claim discrimination because he is a black man? Please send Jermaine Jones home with a lifetime supply of the Woe Is Me Black Man Juice in a sippy cup and a  bill for attorney fees for this here foolishness. Unless Mr. Jones’ representation can prove that American Idol routinely overlooks a bunch of arrest warrant-having contestants, this man needs a good sit down.

Personal message to Jermaine Jones: No, son. You were cut because you don’t have enough sense to live without multiple arrest warrants. Nobody cares about your career or singing ability when you become such a potential risk for any entity that may invest in your music career. The American Idol Show has a legal team. They are not stupid or bananas.

On the other hand, as promised, here’s the verdict as to whether Jermaine Jones is bananas or not:

NY’s Mayor Bloomberg Tells Obama Not Here, Not Now

by MullOverThis

Of course, Mayor Bloomberg is reputedly racist to tell our President NOT to come to survey the damage immediately following the worst natural disaster to every hit the state of New York.  Well, banana peel folk who make everything “racist,” are rattling!

Why would any NYC Mayor tell the POTUS not to come when Obama was planning to visit and assure the people that he cares?  Because whenever the POTUS shows up, the city always cooperates with the secret service to shut down areas where the POTUS will be operative.  Question:  Who the heck has time for that when the city subway system is still underwater?  When the city is in a state of emergency to get gas, electricity, heat and water?  Although the POTUS has every right to make an appearance and probably does care, his visit is understandably not a critical priority.

NYC is, thank God, much like London and Los Angeles.  They are municipalities that do not rely upon the country for their own safety.  NYC has its own intelligence and although it obviously works in tandem with the federal government and is under the jurisdiction of the United States of America, is largely independent in function.

During 9/11, then NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani did not wait for Bush’s assessment of the catastrophe in order to completely undergo emergency relief.  President Bush did not arrive in New York until September 14, 2011, three days later.  Both Bush and Giuliani are Caucasian and Bush probably had more of a presidential need to appear in New York because it was the hardest hit United States territory in a terrorist attack against our nation.  Racism?  Naw.

Of course, any anti-Obama moves is racist in the world of over-offended Black folk.  I’m good and Black, but do not suffer from this condition.  I would have told Obama to take a chill pill, too.  Obviously, our goodly President didn’t take issue because he didn’t come.  The visual visit is not going to get New York one less federal dollar in relief.

On Trayvon Martin

by MullOverThis

Please, don’t get me wrong.

Trayvon Martin will not know what happens to Zimmerman;  he is gone from us and facing eternity.  All of the rallying and calls for justice is to suit who?  Those who want to know that a sick racist man cannot get away with killing Trayvon.

Who are the “those”? ‘Those” who are concerned about the Trayvons of this world?

“Lawdy, we are tired of injustice in the Black community!”  Is this true or does worldwide action take place only when Trayvon’s get annihilated by non-Black perps?

“Those” are quite selective in expressing genuine concern for young Black males who are killed for no reason and before their time.

Those that watch the Trayvons just about every day and flip the channel when it is Black-on-Black crime.

Those that have the same kind of animus in their hearts towards the “kinds” of people they don’t like:  homos, thugs, chinks, Puerto-Ricans, right-winged Christians, Arabs, drug addicts, and the list goes on.

“Those” who joke with the Zimmerman-types at work or at the bar.

“Those” protesters, spokespersons, justice-seekers, politicians and folks who want to see justice have every right to use their influence to make sure another Black male hasn’t been killed with a seal of approval from the US justice system.  However, the same activists need to use their same influence to make sure the Trayvons that yet breathe and live will have the benefit of such concern to preserve and guard young Black males, even when it means we have to rally against our own in the Black community. Racism drove Zimmerman. A gang initiation, drugs, and sheer foolishness drives Black folks to cut and kill each other every day.  Let’s put some hoodies on and talk about that.

Nuff said.

NYPD BIASED IN HATE CRIME INVESTIGATION

by MullOverThis

Get ready for this one, folks.

There has been a news story in New York for the past few days regarding 4 NYC stores that were defaced with Anti-Semitic symbols and language.  The NYPD, one of the so-called most advanced police departments in the world-with its own intelligence-that NYPD, has released footage of four persons of interest.

NY1 and the Daily News have blatantly associated the four suspects in the released footage as racists and the culprits.  This characterization is consistent with the toilet paper gutter news organizations that they have both become known to be.  What these idiots have not considered is that those four individuals in footage may not have had anything to do with the crime.

I have no criminal justice education or experience.  Yet, eating enough Wheaties has fueled this brain enough to know when things do not add up, or make sense.

One of the four persons in the footage went to her local police department last evening along with her representation.  She stated that the local detectives told her there was nothing they could do to assist her, because higher ups were on this case.  K.  Your face and image is plastered all over the news for being associated with this hate crime, and the local NYPD can’t do a thing to protect you, when their release of the footage has put you in harm’s way for any nutjob who wants to go overboard because of the inflammatory media coverage.

The young lady stated she waited for the Manhattan detectives to arrive and they presented her with additional footage, which was not yet released in the media. ASIDE:  How come this information I am relaying to you isn’t all over the internet through news media outlets, and they are supposed to be following this situation?  Might it be because journalism has become so degenerative that what makes print and press is what Bloomberg and a few lazy detectives have to say?

Back to the point.   The young lady stated that she adamantly told the detectives that what they saw on the additional footage was not anyone defacing the store window.  The young man was simply pointing to an item.  She also stated that the detectives wanted to know WHY the four of them met in the store, WHY one of them went onto the lower level and looked at something in a corner, and a bunch of stupid questions to ask about people who were mere patrons.  Do people stop at racks and pick up an item and look at it?  Is it suspicious behavior to meet a group of friends to hang out in the NYC for the day?  Is it suspicious activity to point at a store window?  How about smudge your face on the window?  How about touch the store door handles?

Idiocy supreme.

Might people who commandeer huge salaries do the following:

Look at the footage of the three other stores that were part of the hate crime “spree”. You might find the same person or persons on the footage in or in front of the stores.  That’s a better correlation of suspect behavior that targeting four people who met up at one store, with no other compelling footage.

Don’t assume all the persons of interest are Asian.  Idiocy-or bias-galore. At least two of those persons on the footage are Black.

It’s an alarming day in America when you meet up with some friends to go to Bryant Park at a local store and have to hire an attorney and be plastered all over the television and internet as racists, when all you did was get your image captured on video footage in conjunction with your friends because you patronized a store that has now become a crime location.  It is more horrific when family and friends alert you all day long that you were on a crime spree, according to the news, in three other stores you never patronized.

Shop alone so dingbat copism doesn’t put you at risk because you were in a group of people who were within the jurisdiction of a racist NYPD.  The Mayor and police might emphasize that these people are persons of interest who may have information about this crime in their public commentary; this would be too unbiased in investigating a biased crime where the NYPD has released images of Black folk as racists,  now wouldn’t it?

Overnight, people whose worst judgment led them to hang out in a Japanese store can lose their jobs, have to defend themselves and be associated as racists in the public eye because the NYPD and the low-grade journalists have done it once again: towed the lines of ethics and decency and just may mess up innocent people’s lives.

MullOverThis

Update:  An anti-Semitic bandit strikes in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn.  Does this mean that the NYPD will broaden their scope of people of interest?  Let’s hope they find the real culprit/s.  And, then they might want to really start having this much gumption and dedication when Anti-Black folks hang nooses.

What Does Keith Koffler Eat For Breakfast?

by MullOverThis

This is a good question.  Being that breakfast, arguably, is the most important meal of the day and the saying goes, “You are what you eat,”  I’d like to know what Koffler ingests each morning.  This man surely has some balls.  He probably has a private chef that prepares him iced coffee, an oat bran/fruit medley parfait infused with whitey privilege hormones, a slice of  whole multi-grain toast, and a slab of beef served rare.

Anyone outside of the fashion industry who takes time to sarcastically report that Michelle Obama sported a $1,000 handbag and wants to claim he is a veteran White House reporter has done one of two things:

1.  Re-defined what we the people should expect from a White House reporter.  We expect the reporting of significant facts or even the spin and skewed slant a veteran reported should provide on newsworthy stories.  Being that gutter-ball reporting is now commonplace, the White House Dossier has complied with such standards and made non-issues an issue.  Example:  Previous First Ladies wore St. John’s knits like we change undergarments;  because Michelle Obama is more fashionable than any First Lady we’ve seen in quite some time, along the likes of Jackie O., her consumption choices are questioned, handbag and all.  It’s hard to just view the First Lady and smile when her expensive handbag is affixed to black arms/hands. 

2.   Revealed he is inflicted with Whitey Syndrome.  Whitey syndrome is a complex condition,  only when viewed from the vantage point of whitey-possessed people.  Whiteys believe they are rational, level-headed, all-inclusive or reasonably exclusive, good-ole patriotic Americans who are at least 1/99999999 bars shy of registering as racists on the objective racist meter.  They do a good job of being undetected while white folks are in power, are the figureheads, and wear the expensive gear.  They love Black people-they adore Black folks and always have a best friend who is Black-so long as Black people do not prove to be superior and receive corresponding recognition, advancement and success that far outshines them.  They remain undetectable in manifesting symptoms until they must confront their greatest fear:  Today, Black people are just as brilliant and accomplished as white folks, even in the context of institutional racism and other adverse historic factors, and don’t need Whitey Syndrome infected people to do a darn thing to get where we want to go.  So long as Black folks don’t get ahead, or stay a split-hair behind whitey, Whitey Syndrome characters remain aloof.  Everything is fine, so long as Whitey does not have to look at President Obama and call him, “Massa.”

Mulloverthis suggests that the WHD get some Whitey Syndrome treated bi-focals, in the form of a right-winged African-American conservative reporter, to pre-screen his so-called White House concerns.  Whitey is incapable of being unbiased, particularly if his diet includes elements induced with whitey hormones.  Mr. Koffler needs to change his diet to include anything that kills white privilege so that we don’t have to anticipate any more bogus articles where he is least qualified to report on what Black caucus members say, the relationship African-American leadership has with President Obama, and presume as Whitey will, that of course President Obama will get most of the Black vote in 2012. What Koffler should spend time dissecting is this “all-in-the-family” branding as used in a Politico post he referenced:

Prominent black leaders — fearing Obama is not only taking them for granted but avoiding them in public — have turned up the heat on the nation’s first African-American president, transforming all-in-the-family concerns into open criticism of the president . . .

(An aside:  Did Koffler assume that Presidents Bush and Clinton would be elected because most white people would vote for them?)

Nuff said on this one.

Blogosphere Ridiculoid: The White House Dossier

by MullOverThis

K, folks.  This here is another dingy.

White House reporter, Keith Koffler, felt some newsworthy compulsion to report on Michelle Obama’s early arrival to the Presidential family’s Martha Vineyard vacation spot, costing taxpayers thousands of extra dollars.  Although I am not a fan of our incumbent President in any manner, whatsoever, other than he is handsome, this type of scrutiny upon the first family is absolutely ridiculous.

Michelle Obama is silent on her vacations, mostly, because she should be.  Hello ridiculoids!  She is the First Lady and we all know that she has to be more careful than any of her predecessors.  Black folks are not stupid.  Although we are making progress, this is still America.  Where is the Vice President’s publicized vacation schedule?  Hmmmhhh.  What is the distinguishing factor in expectation and treatment, here?  Might it be the desperation because of the state of our economy?  Keep searching folks.

Michelle Obama is not an elected politician;  The fact that her husband is, does not trump her decision to take her beautiful daughters and get out of dodge as soon as possible to ensure that everything is appropriate for her man, who happens to be our President.  The first family is not obligated to make their personal consumption choices based upon the state of the economy.  Before those two moved into the White House-and this may be real difficult for “concerned citizens” to accept-they were not broke and busted.  K?  Being the wife of the President of the United States should not be a step-down because ridiculoids have nothing genuine to report.  If Michelle wants to wolf down caviar, her decision to ingest it should not include what other Americans cannot afford to eat.  Her life is her life and she is here to live and enjoy it.

The reason why taxpayers have to pay extra loot in these circumstances is because it is customary.  Mrs. Obama-praise the Lord-travels with security and in Presidential style, as she should.

Now, while Mr. W.H. Dossier is counting how many days Mrs. Obama has been on vacation so far, when she doesn’t have an official political job or obligation to anyone other than her man and children (which should be her focus), I suggest that he re-direct his time to re-structuring his own commuting, vacation, and transportation choices.  Mr. W.H. Dossier would be a tad bit commendable if he commuted on the basis of what other Americans can afford, chose personal vehicle and address choices based upon how it looks for his constituents to see him live in such a trying economy and eat lunch based upon what extra costs his cost-conscious blog incurs when he is away from his desk too long, or has to tip a delivery person.

Mrs. Obama is part of the Washington elite, not a slave to all of sudden, cost-conscious, whining constituents.  Accept it, and look at the cost-effectiveness of the Pentagon and our National Security.  That’s where we can recoup billions.

The Help

by MullOverThis

I attended a pre-screening of DreamWorks Pictures August 10th film release  “The Help”.  This movie was hilarious!

Some notable thoughts:

1.  One of the film co-stars, Octavia Spencer, plays the character “Minny” and her performance reminds me of the “Dream Girls” Jennifer Hudson/Beyonce acting upstage.  Minny makes this movie all by herself, if that were possible.  Although Octavia isn’t the top billed actress, she does an outstanding job of bringing a Black woman’s “tude” to light.

2.  The Help’s  subject matter is the kind of stuff that could make Black folks mad once again.  However the writing, storyline and acting does a great job of making what could otherwise be weighty,  lighthearted, and does so without sacrificing the import of what Black women endured while working in a racist rural South.

3.  The Help is a bit long but doesn’t have one dull moment.  This is a clean movie that the entire family should see and prepare to have engaging conversation about racism, sexism and our nation’s history.

4.  Amidst the context of southern gentility riddled with racism and sexism, the feminine frailties prove strong enough to muddle through life as is, with alliances, allegiances and synergy where the story of The Help is ultimately told.  Cat fights are kitten fights in this film where all symbolic fingernails are in tact by the final scene and curtsey.

I hope The Help does well at the box office.  For more information, here’s the website:  www.thehelpmovie.com.
