First and foremost, being a “black Republican” or “black conservative” (whatever the hell that means) does not make you a bonafide house negro, pathetic shame of a human being. Colin Powell, J.C. Watts, Michael Steele (to a certain extent), and Amy Holmes are all people I respect not only as brothas and sistas, but as Americans who, frankly, I have much in common with idealistically.
However, when you listen to Fox News House Negro Supreme, Juan Williams, give his take on what transpired with Harvard’s Henry Louis Gates and President Barack Obama’s subsequent reaction, you can only laugh because he’s such a clown and try not to cry because you feel so sorry for him. Williams told ABC’s Good Morning America that Obama “spoke out of turn” and referenced the white cops’ “police report” as if it were concrete, die-hard fact.
I used to try and give Williams the benefit of the doubt, but the way he just vehemently declares that the “police report” this police thug Crowley wrote is true and how he has a “deferential approach” to cops, is just, well, fill in the blank yourself.
Fox News’ Sean Hannity’s personal House Negro, Jesse Lee Peterson, who is best known for thanking America “for enslaving his ancestors” and saying the months long Middle Passage boat trip for kidnapped West African men, women, and children was simply like “an uncomfortable trip on a crowded airplane,” went even further. He accused Mr. Gates of “abusing police while black” and said the incident was a case of “black males gone wild.”
Again, I’m not sure whether its funny or sad that these two either do not realize or do not want to realize that Fox News only covets their opinions when they are bashing anything and everything “black.” I have little else to say about these two, as to say anymore would dignify their existence. I’ll let Brother Minister El-Hajj Malik al-Shabazz, aka Malcolm X, explains how these two clowns came to be.
