Laura Bush v Kanye West! Round 2 to Laura

Laura Bush described as "disgusting" comments by rapper Kanye West. Good for her, nice to see her sticking up for her husband.

So I got accused earlier by a commenter about dropping the race card when responding to their post about white people having more money than black people…well so be it, if the race card is dropped what of it? How can someone throw out a racial claim like that (which is true by the way white peeps have more money than black peeps) when arguing about the misguided comments of one black man (Kanye) and then try to hide behind the veil of “When black people use race it’s the race card but when white people use it, it’s a social comment”?

When I posted the Kanye comment I posted it because I thought it was the funniest tv moment I had seen in a long damn time especially with all the hurricane coverage. Of course I was very, very naïve to think that I could post that and a racial issue not spark. Guess this hurricane tragedy just shows that we are not as harmonious as we may have thought we were, or well as some of you thought: I went to school in Texas, coming from a foreign country, trust me, I knew race relations were more tenuous than Hollywood would have you believe.

By the way in terms of Laura Bush v Kanye I am picking Laura…strong southern woman and we already know that she can kill a man (it was an accident).

Sorry to the SBA for my comments earlier, I am just frustrated by the tragedy.

About Me

My photo
Cali-J ueber alles in der Welt. Some think that I am mean; (I call them friends), in fact I am not that mean. What I am is sarcastic and dry to the sandpaper level. I have friends that I have never said a kind word to their face, but I praise to the ends of the earth to anyone I know and will defend them to the end. That’s just how I roll! My boys know that I am down for them, my girls know that no matter what I will keep them safe (and occasionally flirt with them [If you are a female friend of mine and think I haven’t flirted with you it just means you didn’t notice, it was extremely subtle or…not yet ]). No one is safe from my sarcasm even my own parents; hence of course as a kid I spent a significant amount of time in punishment. I treat people with respect if I think they deserve it – everyone starts off with the same amount of respect from me (a lot). You don’t need to earn my respect; you have to keep my respect.
