The Media Got It All Wrong by Akindele Akinyemi


While the liberal media are having a field day about Don Imus I have grown tired of all of this. I am not upset or pissed off at his comments anymore.

The media is so liberal that I was totally disgusted when I watched the Today Show yesterday morning and had an all liberal panel discussion on race. Where is the fair balance in the media?

Don Imus SHOULD not be fired but there should be some severe consequences. The ONLY reason why he should not be fired is because how many times this type of mess goes on in our community?

The Rutgers Women's Basketball got on TV yesterday and sounded sympathetic. Now, my personal experiences with women's basketball go as far back as 12 years. Sisters call each other degrading names, which in many cases, would be considered racist. However, if a MAN ( and in this case a White Man) got on TV and said what he said (like Imus) he is condemned to hell.

Black women get on TV and radio and grossly degrade men of all races. Especially Black men. Add social welfare programs (thanks to the Democrats) and feminism and they will go as far as saying they do not even need a Black man in the home. Women, in general, grossly degrade men whether in a joking way or being serious.

Who we should be condemning to hell are those who continue to use double standards in our community. Yes, that includes athletes as well as professionals. We need to disregard the race pimps and hilltop hustlers who continue to exploit the Black community. Rap stars make these type of comments all the time. Where is the outrage from the race pimps and hustlers? Where is the NAACP on this? What about all those Black Nationalists and Black liberals who talk about exterminating White people? Do you agree with that?

The secret is this. We call each other niggas in a jokingly fashion daily. We use this word all the time, even subconsciously. We call each other nappy head hoes, bitches, skanks, pigeons and dykes daily. Sisters in athletics and in professional settings size up each other daily. They look at each other and say "damn that bitch don't even have an ass. How is she pulling all those niggas?" I also have heard this in casual conversation many times, "why is showing her titties like that, no one wants to see that shit." Or "she thinks her hair is whipped but that shit looks like a mop." Or "if that black ass hoe don't stop looking at my nigga I'm going to beat her bitch ass." In fact I was on the PHONE with a sister the night Rutgers played Tennessee for the NCAA Women's championship and she even called them "dykes and hoes." But because Imus is a national figure he is going to take the hit.

What about the young sister on myspace.com who showed a picture of a man's penis tattooed on her chest? This type of behavior is rampant in the hood. Yet, we do not hear the race pimps and hilltop hustlers denouncing this.

I want those who are reading this to prove me wrong. I have heard this and you have too. So why are you so upset and outraged when someone from another race say it?

Man I hear this DAILY. Remember School Daze? Spike Lee exposed this on the big screen. I have been called Tar Baby. And what about the countless times over and over again of how Black liberals calls Urban Conservatives Uncle Toms, Niggas, Darkies, Sambo, Coons, Insensitive, Apologists, Black Hoes and even Sellouts. This is acceptable in our culture when we find these same Urban Conservatives are succeeding against all odds in a society that is historically racist. We are not credited at all other than being "bootlickers" for White people.

Now watch this. If Don Imus would have called Urban Conservatives or Black Republicans "hoes" or "niggas" or even Uncle Toms not one local, state or federal Black leader would have said ANYTHING. This is a double standard my brothers and sisters.



The pictures above are caricatures about Former Lt. Governor Michael Steele from Maryland being depicted as a Sambo (this was done by White Folks) and Condoleeza Rice being depicted as an ignorant, barefoot "mammy," reminiscent of the stereotyped black woman in the movie Gone with the Wind who remarked: "I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' no babies." This was also done by a White artist.
Here are other pictures of Dr. Condoleeza Rice that White men have drawn:













Where was those same Black leaders and race pimps when White people depicted these gross images of our national leadership? Nowhere to be found. Dr. Condoleeza Rice is one of the most important figures in American History period. And you know if a Democrat gets into the White House we will not see Black figures on a national level for years to come. Yet, Black liberal leadership do not care about her being crucified because she do not support Black leadership's socialist policies.

My point of all of this? I think Black leadership need to shut the hell up and re-evaluate ourselves before protesting television networks to get rid of Imus. We are such a reactionary people and never proactionary when it comes to Black culture.

Coopted Ex-Progressive if you are so Positive for Black Afrikans why are you still using the N word - I believe that people who recognize the historic & contemporary meaning of the N word would not use it even if only repeating what other people say!
Do you believe that a White European-American calling Black Afrikan Women that are college educated "Nappy Headed Hoes" has the same effect in terms of White European-American Supremacy as a person of color calling Black Afrikan Women that are college educated? I know you do I just want you to explain it if you can

i am still using the word nigga because I was making a point dumb ass.

College educated? Academic probation is NOT college educated.

There is nothing to explain about this. What I said was clear cut and dry.

Coopted Ex-Progressive - Your response is WEAK! - you can't answer the ? - You need to repent - You claim to be a Christian that has the right to say women are sinning because of abortions & Homosexuals are sinning because of fornication
But your unrepentant profanity makes you a stumbling block as a Christian
You need as a Christian to stop swearing 1st & then deal with other peoples' sin Bible Words of Jesus
"Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shall thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." Matthew 7:5

Actually since this is my blog I can choose to answer the question or not but since you are being such an asshole I will answer your question.

You said this:

What the hell is this a riddle? Man you got to make yourself clear!!!

I never even supported Imus on this you racist asshole. I said Blacks should stop the double standard. With all of the Black organziations calling for White people to be killed there is no outcry from our Black leadership. So we are showing our childen that it is OK to kill other people that do not have the same skin color as you. I know you believe in killing white people because you support Black Supremacy and their socialist philosophies.





- You need to repent - You claim to be a Christian that has the right to say women are sinning because of abortions & Homosexuals are sinning because of fornication
But your unrepentant profanity makes you a stumbling block as a Christian

As if the Bible is some good clean book. There is profanity, prositution, greed, hunger, poverty, homosexuality and even God ordering his prophets to kill. What the hell are you talking about?

Meanwhile, your hypocritical ass support the murder of white people, the murder of Blacks who do not support your socialist claims. You call youself a Christian but you support a racist philosophy.

You need as a Christian to stop swearing 1st & then deal with other peoples' sin Bible Words of Jesus
"Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shall thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." Matthew 7:5

That quote is directed to you not me. This is my blog you fool!!!! I will say what I please to get my point across!@!!!

Coopted Ex-Progressive - You do not have the right to say whatever you want to make your point as a Christian - Your Christianity is supposed to be paramount - Your Profanity is a stumbling Block as a Christian You need to repent
You claim that you did not understand the question I will break it down for you
"Do You Mr Akinyemi believe that a White European-American Male that calls Black Afrikan Women that are college educated 'Nappy Headed Hoes' to be more racist in terms of White European-American Supremacy than if a Black Afrikan Male called Black Afrikan Women that are college educated 'Nappy Headed Hoes'? Yes or No

Actually I do..especially towards fools like yourself.

Your Christianity is supposed to be paramount - Your Profanity is a stumbling Block as a Christian You need to repent

Are you God Now? I will talk to you in any way until otherwise. Racist scum like you need to be placed in check.

You claim that you did not understand the question I will break it down for you
"Do You Mr Akinyemi believe that a White Male that calls Black Women who are college educated 'Nappy Headed Hoes' to be more racist in terms of White Supremacy than if a Black Afrikan Male called Black Afrikan Women that are college educated 'Nappy Headed Hoes'? Yes or No

No. It does not matter whether you are white or Black the term itself is disgusting......A white male is not more racist than a black male using the term.

Coopted Ex-Progressive Now you are demonstrating your Black Afrikan self Hatred by calling me a Black Afrikan -scum - a dehumanizing term
No I am not God but I have the right as a Christian to tell you a supposed Christian that you are not following the Christian book the Bible - The Bible teaches that God loves me & doesn't consider me scum - unlike you -are you a follower of the God of the Bible?
Like I said I knew you would minimize White European-American Supremacy through White European-American Hate Speech

Its rather ironic that you have convoluted the Imus tirade into liberal media field day. Don Imus should be fired for breaking FCC regulations the same ones that protect the airwaves from offensive language. If they can go after Janet Jackson for indencency then dammit why not pull the plug on the I-man he has a record of making offensive remarks towards blacks and others.

Mr. A this problem can be traced specfically back to the conservative deregulation of the fcc but it can also be laid upon the values of this nation people are willing to do or say anything for a $$$...Yes you are right black people can spit razor blades at each other all day long but we have no national listening audience or tv veiwing it might just be you and your two homies similar to the conversation you spoke of with your friend calling the rutgers b-ball team some dykes and hoes.
I can't agree that we lay this problem on feet of rap music because they didnt create niggas and hoes and bitches, all of this was made in amerikkka before rap even was thought about.

Oh well if the show fits...and you are fitting the shoe...

No I am not God but I have the right as a Christian to tell you a supposed Christian that you are not following the Christian book the Bible -

Are you God? I did not think so.

The Bible teaches that God loves me & doesn't consider me scum -

But I do.

unlike you -are you a follower of the God of the Bible?

Of course..real Christian people not some damn Black Nationalist/socialist who hate poeple.

Like I said I knew you would minimize White European-American Supremacy through White European-American Hate Speech

Yeah I did so what???????

Interesting comments but you are missing some point. Imus wasn't fire. Corporate America saw fit not to sponsor his show anymore.
2nd you are missing the relationship between white supremacy, white priviledge and finally racism.

The hip hop generatioon is 30 years old at the most yet degrading acts against black woman by white men have gone on from the inception of our contact with Western Europe slavers. Our sister's nakeness in the warmth of Africa was associated with promiscous behaviors. Black woman were intepreted as over sexed whores or worst yet the personal playthings of white males example Sally Hemmings the 16 year old half sister of Thomas Jefferson's wife became the personal plaything of our 3rd President the beloved author of the Declaration of Independence.

The African American rappers are merely the American response the conditions that already existed in America. No woman should be referred to as a Bitch or ho.

I found myself agreeing with Ann Coulter who stated clearly that these women were not seeking a public audience. They were just going about their jobs being students and athletes. I also agree with Snoop Dogg, who stated clearly that these Rutgers student were sister's who are excelling in Athletics and education not someone in the hood who is only after a brother for his money and not doing anything with their lives.

Imus did what he did cause as a white male he had the power to do such; for years he has been bouncing on the borderline with his racist and sexist tirades. Unfortunately he found a willing audience white males who laughed along with him. Finally the laughing stopped and I for one won't miss his sorry old white ass.
