When did peace become a five-letter word?

This article appalled me.

Standing up for peace these days is almost an act of treason. It's bullshit.

I wonder what Jesus would think about know, Jesus, whose birthday is coming in less than four weeks? The whole basis of Christianity?

"Kramer" loses it...

I saw this on YouTube and one of the comment said...

this is nothing compared to richard pryor, eddie murphy, many many more attacks on white people which have been ok'd by most. oh well, shit happens.

Richard Pryor(RIP) took shots at white folks but who did he have his most cinematic success with? His buddy, Gene Wilder. Many black comedians used humor to make light of heavy situations (slavery, economic inequality, discrimination) as a form of therapy, like when female comedians bag on men.

Michael Richards lost all points in my book. He turned a less than optimal situation (a heckler, which is par for the course in stand-up) into an arena for hate or ignorance. There's a big difference between "white people walk and talk funny" comedy and "N***er" this and "n****r" that. He clearly wasn't joking...there's nothing funny about that. There are better ways to take down a heckler or a disrespectful audience member, whatever the object of his epithets was. His ass needs a drink from the firehose...

Election Redux

"YAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" - Howard Dean, Chair, DNC

I am feeling pretty good about this past election. There's a black governor in Massachusetts and the Republican rule of Ohio's executive branch and the country's legislative branch is over!

Now...let's get working...minimum wage, health insurance, affordable higher education, equitable K-12 funding await..
