February is Turning out to be Racially Charged and Delicious.

White College students dressin up like coons again.

Don't blame this sh*t on Hip hop.
This coonery sh*t is as old as baseball and apple pie.

Baggy clothes one thing.

Bling another thing.

Black Face, w/ baggy clothes @ a party dancing holding a forty = '07 Coonery.

Apparently the President of Clemson is investigating the parties.

"The behavior of the students involved was so offensive and inflammatory that it could quickly have spiraled into a major racial episode on campus," said Bill Nigut, ADL Southeast Regional Director. "But by publicly condemning the party and quickly calling for an investigation, President Barker has hopefully shown that the incident doesn't represent the attitudes about race held by most students on the Clemson campus."

"This unfortunate episode points up the need for ongoing education on the college campus to ensure that students fully understand America's history of racism and the consequences of unchecked bigotry and hate," Nigut said.

In a letter to students and faculty, President Barker said he was "appalled, angered and disappointed by the party." He pledged that the university is "willing to do anything to make this right."

Presidential candidate Joseph Biden calls Obama a N*gga. I mean he called him "Articulate and Clean".

I betchu he figures out a way to blame it on hip hop.

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man." (Watch Biden's comments and Obama's reaction Video)

Biden issued a statement Wednesday afternoon, saying: "I deeply regret any offense my remark in the New York Observer might have caused anyone. That was not my intent and I expressed that to Sen. Obama."

Biden also spoke to reporters in a conference call Wednesday afternoon and said the remark was taken out of context.

"Barack Obama is probably the most exciting candidate that the Democratic or Republican Party has produced at least since I've been around," Biden said on the call. "And he's fresh. He's new. He's smart. He's insightful. And I really regret that some have taken totally out of context my use of the world 'clean.'"

He know he really wanted to call 'em a n*gga. Its okay. Joe Joe.

A school in Oakland has succeeded in reducing the number of Black students and increasing the number of neighborhood white students.
Peralta is still a racially and socioeconomically diverse school- in part, because its attendance area includes neighborhoods outside of Rockridge. But African-American children made up 85 percent of the kindergarten class in 2000, and only 28 percent in 2005. The number of kids who receive free or reduced-price lunch also has declined.

Barclays has naming rights to the New Jersey Nets stadium in Brooklyn. Politicians and n*ggas a trippin off the fact that Barclays has "ties to slavery".

Mr. Green, who is also black, said that Barclays, one of the wealthiest corporations in the world, had agreed to pay $2.5 million for park renovation and other projects. “At least as a point of negotiation,” he said, “we should seek far more.”

He added, “If we were to exclude all the corporations that participated in the slave trade, there would only be a handful of companies” for Forest City Ratner to negotiate with.

So wait. Is the problem that Barclays benefited from slavery, or that folks fell that Barclays they need to pay MORE BECAUSE they benefited from slavery.

He added, “This game of ‘gotcha!’ — pointing out this particular bank had relationships with slave traders or slaveholders — gets a little bit silly because all banks did. Barclays is not unusual in being connected to the history of slavery, nor is it unusually innocent.”
Sh*t every major financial institution has ties to slavery. Whats the point?!?!??! If fools are gonna go @ major institutions then go hard. No cherry picking allowed.

Speaking of cherries. I was in Wholefoods today and the strawberries were so aromatic that I smelled them before I saw them.

It was a short wift of summer.
