Today is a celebration of a dear friend’s birth!
Happy Birthday Julie!
Okay, enough fun and games…COME HOME! :-)
Ah yes, Wall-E comes out today! Does anyone want to see it with me? Maybe later next week?
Whoopi Goldberg told Michelle Obama on “The View,”:
“I’m really glad to see you because any time you see black folks on the news, particularly women, they have no teeth, and the teeth that they have have gold around them and they can’t put a sentence together and perhaps now, we can, this is, you are helping to change a perception. I know it sounds funny and silly but if you are a black women and you are tuning in and every time you see someone who is supposed to represent black women and women not very very fair skin women, I am talking about dark black women, I just want to say thanks.”
Ummm…What? Okay, so I’m not a real political activist, but I hate seeing people condensed down to one thing: their race. Michelle Obama went to Harvard Law School. She seems brilliant, well articulated and polished. No, I don’t agree with her every thought, nor do I agree with all of her husbands proposals and views on politics and life, but I do know that there is more, much more to this lady than her race. How disrespectful can a person be? Why not ask her something where she can showcase her intelligence?
If Cindy McCain was interviewed and the focus was on her blond hair and how blonds are generally portrayed as dumb…
“I’m really glad to see you because any time I see blonds on the news, particularly women, they have a blank stare and they can’t put a sentence together and perhaps now you are helping to change a perception. I know it sounds funny and silly but if you are a blond woman and you are tuning in and every time you see someone who is supposed to represent blond women, not honey blonds, I am talking about platinum blonds, I just want to say thanks.”
