Donald Sterling’s House Negro: Leon JenkinsskepticalbrothaNAACP-Donald-Sterling

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 13:24:59 +0000

By now you’ve heard of the toxic swirl of racism surrounding Billionaire Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers NBA franchise. What you may not have heard about is the complicity of the Los Angeles NAACP in covering up for this infamous racist with a public relations problem. In 2009, the same year that…(image)

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 09:05:32 +0000

Betting against Barack Obama is always a losing proposition, but he’s in a race against history that no Democratic president has won in 74 years.  Only twice in American history has there ever been three or more consecutive Democratic Administrations. Both occurrences happened about century apart. Fourteen years into the 21st Century, no party has…(image)

Y’all need to chill! Seriously!skepticalbrothaRomney Obama

Thu, 04 Oct 2012 12:22:02 +0000

Mitt Romney is the living embodiment of a President from Hollywood central casting.  His all-American good looks and patrician bearing are reassuring to some folk and harkens back to the halcyon days of yesteryear when times were simple and dark people, women and gays knew their proper places.  Following the lead of Congressional Republicans in…(image)

Chris Christie: an imminent threat in 2016skepticalbrothacory_bookerchris_christie2012-wide

Sat, 22 Sep 2012 20:00:13 +0000

I’ve got a confession to make: I’ve got a bug up my ass about Chris Christie.  He scares me in a way that no Republican does.  It occurs to me that as Mitt Romney sinks into the quicksand of evasive, duplicitous bullshit of his own making, Chris Christie would be having a much better go…(image)

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has abandoned all pretense of giving a shit about assisting Mitt Romney in toppling Barack Obama this year and has started running in earnest for 2016. This week, the same politician who expressed disdain for “the crazies” in his party flew to Iowa to cozy up to just that in…(image)

Dear Mr. Leroy, I thought of you today. It was the Mad Men that did it. Watching the pornographic misogyny of that celluloid homage to white masculinity made me think of your black ass. I looked up to you as a boy. Silly me. Daddy was no longer in the picture and none of Mama’s…(image)

Sorry Y’all, I just can’t get over black women of my generation willing to lower themselves to play mammies that whitewash the Jim Crow subjugation of our people while Barack and Michelle Obama are living in the White House.  There is something profoundly deceitful about that which completely ignores the struggle to go from the…(image)

l Ten years ago today, our nation was attacked by a radical band of sociopathic Islamists led by Osama Bin Laden. They were hell bent on killing as many people as possible to propagate their rancid ideology. They failed. Two wars, ten years, and one trillion dollars later, it was Barack Hussein Obama that finally brought Bin Laden’s reign of terror to an ignominious end. God is…(image)

Addressing Jobsskepticalbrothagty_obama_sotu_ll_110210_wblog

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 05:50:24 +0000

The President’s address introducing his jobs bill was a masterstroke of simplicity and cunning I’ve come to expect from this White House.  If Hill Republicans are serious about job creation, they will pass the Obama jobs package which is heavy on payroll tax cuts and tax credits for small business—an approach to job creation that…(image)
