black people love basketball. and weezy.

Meet Franco Finn. Amidst his usual hometown crowd-rocking duties, is a segment called "Upgrade of the Game" where a lucky group of nosebleed ticket-holders are treated to empty seats a little closer to the action. Franco gets the honor and pleasure of informing the Warriors faithful of their great luck. So far so good.

The past several games, this honor has been bestowed upon two to six of my brothers and aunties and cousins - great! Love to see my folks get a little something for nothing. Any steps towards the 40 acres is mostly appreciated. Except while the family is happily cheering on camera, we hear this:

I'll be real - it's hard to be the Warriors' official hype man these days. Even harder to get a job if you don't have one. If I were Franco, I'd quit in solidarity. At least until they found a better song.

wash your mouth out with soap.

i can't say it better than this: keeping whites and colors separate at the U-Washee, via angry asian man.

I'm pretty sure there aren't many people in the world who need help in upholding racist stereotypes about Black people. We can trace this challenge to a lot of root causes, but there's always room for a big THANKS A LOT to Harriet Beecher Stowe and her helpful tome.

I can halfway understand why the fine people of Seoul chose to honor those images with a cultural establishment all their own - a country bar in homage to the 19th century novel and its loving mammy and dutiful servant. Why wouldn't you want a hug from a big-chested woman or get your soju mojito (or whatever) with a smile and a "yessuh"?

Fuck that.

My President is Black

Matthew Africa got this gem in payment for a Gig at Kitty's. He/We are astounded at the time and attention someone gave to penciling in Abraham Lincoln's face except for the eyes. Perhaps they were curious about recent inquiries into our 16th president's rumored African heritage... if you think "Honest Abe" is great guy, ask any Native what they think about the Black Hawk War... Proof an American President has to be a jerk.
