First of all, I have seen some bizarre posts and reverse-dipsy-doodles by the racial Quislings, right wing fanatics and trivial fools who are showcased on that African American "conservative" carnival Booker Rising (brought to you by the dubious University of Illinois "grad" Missy Shay), but y'all really should check out the inapt and crazy stuff they say about Sacha Baron Cohen's "Borat"and of course Michael Richards' rant.
That said, I've been following Sacha Baron Cohen since I saw the original Ali G movie (a Brit film-comedy where he becomes a member of Parliament). Funny as Hell...though not as hilarious as the Ali G interviews on HBO. And for you who feel he's not a "family" type--he was the voice of "King Julien, Lord of the Lemurs" in Disney Pixar's Madagascar. I thought he carried that movie, more so than Jada Pinkett Smith (my favorite down low lesbian) as a hippo.
My big concern about "Borat" is that now it's in worldwide release, it confirms the lovely image set by our retarded President and frightening Vice President that we are indeed a nation of rednecks, morons and arrogant boors. And it's no accident that the people who got played the worst and showed their true racist and sexist colors were "Red State" clowns who know nothing of the universe beyond the Wal mart or the McDonald's in the strip mall eight traffic lights down the street.
As for Richards, it is telling that our patron saints of self-aggrandizing pimpdom--Jesse and Rev. Al--have decided to hear him out when it looked like they could get some extra inkand hype. Funny they didn't tell him to just apologize to the brothas and call it a day. Comedian Paul Mooney surmised that Richards was lucky the dudes were "bourgies" (and they were part of a yuppie mixed group who did NOT heckle Richards). The lesson was valuable however because it gave some idiots some pause--especially those who've made a career on talk radio or Fox News heh heh heh, by proclaiming the hell of "political correctness." If you are going to insult black people, insult the ones blithely spreading AIDS; shooting each other over iPods or high school beefs; accusing their peers in school as acting white merely because they want to study and make their lives better; folks who could better spend $400 on educational materials for their kids or a high yield savings account but would rather wait in line for Playstation 3; folks who think dessing like whores or convicts is cool; folks think high art is reading books like Mama I'm in Love with a Gangsta, etc. etc. Feel free to call them niggers. I won't mind...
