Do Better Thursday: The Shirley Sherrod Fiasco

 We all knew this day would come… We just didn’t know when, how or why… In the end, it was the most obvious issue that placed President Obama into the “Doing It Wrong” category… Race.

No need for a long intro…

Let’s get right to it…

Doing It Right

  • Happy Birthday to the Star Child aka Sir Lollipop Man… “Chocolate-coated freaky and habit forming“, George Clinton!!! Leader of the Mothership turned 69 today… I’m sure somewhere “there was a real type of thang going down, getting down… with a whole lot of rhythm going round…”
Aquaboogie, baba?
  • Shout out to all my friends Doing It Right by getting married and THEN having babies… Truly, congrats to them all and much love and success to their families! They know who they are…
How come no one has topped this show? :-/
  • Inception… Look, it’s not going to solve the world’s mysteries… Nor does it thoroughly examine the power of dreams… but what it does a heluva job at is keeping you in your seat for roughly 2 hours and 20 minutes… Christopher Nolan does a great job of telling this story… Even though is completely unfathomable, you will think “damn… If I took NyQuil can I get this popping…” In a summer full of lackluster films, sans Toy Story 3 I hear, Inception comes to the rescue… bottom-line, go see it… Even if it’s just to get away from this evil ass Sun…
 Just go see it… You wouldn’t want these guys to have to come in your dreams to try to plant the idea to go… it can lead to very complicated things…

On the fence…

  • National Association for the Advancement of Colored People hasn’t been advancing too many folks in a while… Now, before the Shirley Sherrod incident occured… I was already priming to go-in on the historic civil rights organization… Mainly because they only seem to pop up when CNN reports something first… then they jump on it… they’ve become pretty invisible in the past two decades… It’s either because the media doesn’t pick up on what they’re accomplishing… or they’re just not doing much of anything… I refuse to quickly denounce the legendary entity, as they did with Sherrod… but it’s hard to see their work advancing the community when so many in the community appear to be regressing… STEP IT UP!
 They’re watching us…

    Doing It Wrong!!!

    • The Head Brother In Charge falls for the okie-doke… The Movement shall not… and will not “hide” this behind the Obama Administration… or place the blame on the evil-doers over at Fox News… nor will we address Andrew Breitbart… This entire Doing It Wrong moment is for Barack Hussein Obama… Now, brother (in my best Dr. Cornel West voice) we understand you are battling two wars… pushing an agenda that includes financial and healthcare reform… and also managing a catastrophic natural disaster… Which is why it is imperative you remain on your toes… It’s a lot of pressure, we underdig… but you can’t afford to have any slip ups… Last year, Skip Gates had a little skirmish and we felt you dealt with it appropriately… Beer summit… Ok, cool… Now we come to the Shirley Sherrod situation… simple and plain… It should have never happened… This was the slow-pitch softball of racial ploys… Not a Strasburg heater… or a fast-speed pitch from the Champion Lady Bruins… This was a “Grandma’s on 3rd… My dirty uncle is on 1st… We’re down 2 runs… and my cousin who was pitching a shutout just hurt himself… was replaced by the drunk aunt to close the game…” All you had to do was step up to the plate… read the seams… lift your knee… and swing for fences… Instead, you went up to bat… Didn’t check the score… outs… or order… Because if you don’t get this right… no one on your team may ever get another chance at bat… and you struckout… I mean, really? You backed the decision to force Sherrod to resign based on a report from Fox News and a video released by a conservative blogger? Really? Brother Barack, that’s the equivalent of SkeletorNews reporting that Cringer aka Battle Cat called He-Man “a punk ass beeeeeech” behind his back… based on video edited by Mumm-Ra… and then He-Man goes out and asks Lion-O to “handle that.” Yes… it’s just as absurd. C’mon, O… you can’t fall for these schemes without even asking questions… Next time, call up the Mystery Machine… Scooby and them will solve it in 30 minutes or less.
     “Fox News… ruh roh???”

    Welp… it had to happen…

    Glad he rectified the manner in a timely fashion…

    See you next time…
