I was told I never write about food in three different e-mails today. I know I've written about fried chicken and I know I've written about my mother's pies.
But I'll cover it tonight for a light post.
If I'm eating alone, pepperoni pizza and that's it. If I'm eating with my kids, vegetables as well. Usually a carrot, broccoli combo (sometimes I'll cut up some cauliflower as well and put that in). That's because, as a parent, I have to set the example.
But if it's just me, I'll just eat the pizza. I like the thick crust. New York style crust is great but thick (which is a little thinner than New York style) works out fine for me as well.
Pepperoni pizza; however, is not my favorite. My favorite is anchovy but it's so hard to get that these days.
Next e-mail issue, I noted a thing from Black Agenda Report last week and I had an e-mail asking me what my problem with BAR is? I used to note them all the time. That changed due to them. My father can't even stand to read Margaret Kimberley anymore and she was once his favorite.
Go read Kimberley's latest.
In 2012, Obama will not have a primary opponent. There will be no Hillary Clinton claiming that Obama “Isn’t a Muslim, as far as I know,” or desperately stating that she is reaching out to the “good voters, the white voters.” Every time Clinton displayed her ham handed inability to achieve the fine American art of being racist in code, Obama received a boost from black voters. Without Clinton, there is no one to give those voters an incentive to show their loyalty.
It's not just that I disagree with her b.s. (And am so damn tired of Kimberley and others screaming "racist" every time they disagree with someone.) It's that I don't like LIARS. Read it, "good voters, the white voters." That's in quotes. Hillary never said that.
Don't hold your breath waiting for a correction. BAR really doesn't do them. And Kimberley's work has gotten so bad that she needs near weakly corrections.
I warned when no one did. I warned about what Barack would mean for Black America. Margret wasn't calling it out. Glenn Ford and Bruce Dixon still weren't hitting hard.
But I did. And I talked at length in the roundtables at Third about how we'd be betrayed by Barack. And we were. The mixed one has betrayed us.
