Are We There Yet?
Mood:  loud
I'm going to put an article about this on the Page of Outrage when I have time, but I've been busy swatting flies over the last couple of days. Does anyone else have an issue with Ice Cube being in this family film "Are We There Yet?". I just found out this weekend that Ice Cube used to be in a rap band called NWA, which stood for N-ggers With Attitude, and wrote rap songs like F--k the Police? Shouldn't our families be concerned? Where is the outrage?!

I for one am not concerned at all. Frankly who gives a flying f""". What exactly is wrong with N-ggers With Attitude as a name for a musical group? Its simply a name that is culturally appropriate. It just not your culture or anything even remotely related to whatever passes for culture for a cretin such as yourself.

As far as songs such as F--k the Police. First of all, yes its a great song. Who hasn't cranked up the volume while stopped at an intersection with a couple of donut chompers in the adjacent cruiser. Its a poetry of the abuse of power and the ensuing consequences.

MS,
Don't get me wrong, I can listen to some rap songs. I think "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard has some great rhymes, and a super beat, but I just don't like the language that some of these other "artists" need to use.

But back to my orignial point. Hypothetically, you go to see Are We There Yet with your son/daughter. He/she loves the film, especially that guy Ice Cube, and wants to see/hear more from this "artist". Next thing you know he/she's wearing gang colors, taking drugs, and wanting to have sex with the police, all because of this "Gateway Movie".

Hey Moron,

I'm sure you enjoy rapping along with your abuse-of-power "song" when you're relaxing safely in your living room. But what about when a big, black ghetto monster comes bashing down your door and raping your wife? Or when a brownie cuts the throat of some poor old woman for the $2.46 in her purse? Or an al-Qaeda member highjacks a plane and navigates it into the Sears Tower (next time)?

Let me speculate that you won't be singing "F--- the Police" then. No. I think you'll be singing "Thank God for our brave men in blue."

Peter,
Again, I appreciate you zeal and willingness to take a stand on the important issues, but it's important that we show respect for our black brothers out there, and by brothers, I mean "we're all brothers". It's not a black thing, or anything like that. If you do this much more, I'm going to have to cut you off the board.

My apologies, Al.

I don't mean to imply in any way that I don't support our black brothers and sisters. I surely do. As Jefferson wrote, "All men are created equal." I agree.

To clarify: When I speak of "big, black ghetto monsters," I'm not talking about ALL black people -- just the criminals that are bred in the projects of America. As for the gainfully-employed, tax-paying, law-abiding, respectful, patriotic blacks across this great land of ours -- I join you with honor. I'll say it now and say it loud: I'M BLACK AND I'M PROUD!

Peter,
I'm confused. You're black?

No, Al -- of course not.

I'm just saying that I, too, am gainfully-employed, tax-paying, respectful, law-abiding, and patriotic. And if you're like me, then you're okay with me -- no matter what color you are. Even if you're black.

And THAT is what America is all about.
