Jesse Jackson And Bill O'Reilly, Billo Wimped Out

Jesse Jackson appeared on Billo show last night for the first time. They talked about Billo"s comments about his dinner at Sylvia's restaurant in Harlem, the Jena 6, and racial issues in general. Jackson was on for the better part of an half hour. It was an informative conversation. It showed something about Billo that most people already know (though they might not admit it). He considers whites to be superior to every other race of human beings on earth. He feels whites should have all power over the world's resources, including human resources.

Over the years Billo has said many dumb things that proves he thinks whites should rule the world. He's said white men have all the money and power, that the U.S. is a nation of white Christians. That it would be bad for blacks to pursue repreparations because it would cause an uproar in the white power system, and that black Americans would suffer because repreparation would piss off the many whites in this country who don't like the idea. For the record I don't think reparations for slavery is a good idea. I do think all the jim crow years when blacks built this country, and paid in their own blood, sweat, and tears for doing so should be be considered. Billo knows the kind of viewers and listeners he has, so he says things that sound very good to his flock. Though I do believe the things he says are his true feelings and beliefs. He believes because he's white he better than darker people. Of course Billo lives in his head, an alternate universe.

I was surprised how Billo completely buckled when he finally had Jackson in his face. Billo has done nothing but vilify Jackson all the years he's been on Fox News Channel. Yet when he had the chance to tell Jackson face to face what he thought of him. Billo not once confronted Jackson on any of the negative things he has said about said about Jackson in the past. In short, Billo wimped out. As for Jesse Jackson he held his own with Billo. He did not let Billo talk him down, or pull stupid statements out of thin air. Jackson challenged Billo, and Jackson made certain his points were made. Billo didn't dominate, he was forced listened. That was a refreshing change.

Al Sharpton And Bill O'Reilly

What a wimp! Sharpton, you Billo boot licker, oh you. I never really cared for Sharpton's style. How he always shows up at the time a racial issue has gotten newsworthy, and then he race hustles the issue to line his own pockets. But I did think the man had guts, however after watching the interview he did Wednesday night with Billo, I see he's even more of a phony than I thought he was. Sharpton completely wimped out for Billo.

When Billo asked Sharpton what he thought of Billo's remarks regarding his experience at Syivia's (Billo said he was surprised that a black own restaurant was the same as any white eatery he patronized). Sharpton said he had not yet seen the tape. What? Billo made these comments days ago. The comments have been widely covered in the media. And yet, last night, Wednesday, Sharpton hadn't seen the tape? As big of a racial amblance chaser as Sharpton is, he had not bothered to watch the tape before appearing on the show of the man that made the statements? What a crock. A cop out. Sharpton likes to think of himself as a provocateur, I guess just not up against Billo.

It makes me wonder, Sharpton and Billo had dinner at Sylvia's restaurant in Harlem, Billo said he paid the tab. Was Sharpton bought off for trhe price of a dinner? Or is there something more? Sharpton is regular guest on Billo's show, where they play off each racial sterotypes, maybe they made a deal not to provoke one another's audience base without being too obvious. Or maybe Sharpton did not want to offend his dinner companion.

Sharpton showed something really revealing about himself last night on Billo's show: he's much more concerned with his own wants than the racial justice he bellows about in the media. If every injustice against black people was wiped away tomorrow, Sharpton would find racism in that. I think this man is the worst kind of race pimp. He the kind that finds an popular issue of racial injustice, and rides it like it's a two hundred dollar a night ho. That Mr. Sharpton makes you the most abusive pimp out there, the kind that pimps his own race from the bottom up. Sharpton, you just keep kissing Billo's ring. And maybe Billo will drink from your pimp cup.

Ahdmadinejad

There's not much I agree with Pat Buchanan on, but today on MSNBC he made some great points in regards to Ahdmadinejad, and the history of the United States involvement in Iran. Ahdmadinejad spoke today to the student body at Columbia University. He said some dumb things, such as there's no homosexuals in Iran, women are treated fairly in his country, and so on. The Persian president made some good points today also.

First let me say I know nothing about the man. My information about him, and his polices comes solely second hand from the news media. I take that information for it's worth. I am skeptical of the news media. I do know that being a woman, Iran is not a place I want to live in. Women are third class citizens in Iran(infants boys have more rights than adult women). Anyone who dares to speak out against the Govorment punished severly. But, Iran's young people are pro western. The young far out numbers the older people in Iran. So, maybe if we America gives the young people a little help, they can transform the country.

Pat Buchanan pointed out some things that Ahdmadinejad said in his speech at Columbia that made sense. Ahdmadinejad brought out the fact that it was Europe that visited the holocaust on the Jews durning WWII, yet it's the Palestinians that have suffered at the hands of the Jews for the past 60 years. He also reminded us that the U.S. supplied Iraq with intelligence, chemical, biological, and conventional weapons to use against Iran in the Iraq/ Iran war. Ahdmadinejad pointed out that Iran's elected President was drove from office by the C.I.A., and the brutal Shaw was put in place to lead that nation. Iran has a history of human rights abuses, and so does the United States. So I say the rice can't call the potatoes white.

O.J. Simpson, I Don't Pity The Fool

OJ. What can I say about such a man. He's been arrested in Las Vegas for armed robbery, and 10 other felonies. He says he was only trying to reclaim his property. Course it does not matter. The man has to be the biggest idiot on the planet. He has this insane need to be noticed.

You have to wonder if the thought of being OJ Simpson ever entered his hollow mind. The man is an embarrassment to the human race. If he goes to prison it's his own fault. He put himself in the situation. Course, if you ask me, he should have been in prison for the past 14 years. He should be doing time for double murder.

Some people giving interviews in the media says he was setup. OJ should be smarter than that. He let his need to be above the law out weigh common sense. If he has any common sense. I don't know how he was setup to break in someone's hotel room. That's a choice. OJ went to that room on his own.

I hope that black people across the country WILL NOT come to this idiot's defense this time. I don't know if OJ is guilty or not. The one thing I do know is that he uses his blackness only when being black is a benefit to him. When I see OJ on TV the people I see surrounding him are not black. Yet when he needed men to go to the hotel room, to as he claims, get his stuff back who does he calls: black men. He reminds of Bobby Cutts Jr.. Cutts dated and married only white women, yet when he needed underhanded help, who does he call: a black woman.OJ and Cutts are both what I like to call "necessary blacks". Which means, only black when necessary.

As a black person who is sick of OJ, I want it to be known here, that if he's guilty I hope he is convicted, and sent to prison for the max. Then finally maybe he will be out of our hair. I do feel for his family, I know they are tired of standing up for this selfish person.

Brenton Bulter

When being black is proof enough. That all that was needed in Jacksonville Fl. to get Brenton Butler 15, picked up off the streets, while he was walking along minding his own business. He was handcuffed, placed in backseat of police car, taken to a crime scene, identified by the crime victim. Brent was taken to the police station, questioned by cops on and for over 12 hours. During which time he was left alone in a cold soundproof room for up to 3 hours at a time. He was also deprived of food, water, bathroom necessities, his parents were threaten, and he was beaten into submission. He was not allowed to call his parents for over 17 hours. His father had filed a missing person report on his son. The cops wanted his signature. They get what they want, no matter if the information is right or wrong.

Brent was charged with, tried for, and found innocent of the murder of Mrs. Mary Ann Stephens, a tourist staying at a Ramada Inn in Jacksonville. The jury was out only 45 minutes. The only link Brent had to this crime was that he was identified by the victim's husband James Stephens. The only eye-witness to the crime, he was standing beside his wife when she was killed. His identification of Brent was shaky at best. But the word of a senior white man trumps that of young black man. Being black was proof enough for the cops, and Mr Stephens.

You have to feel for Mr. Stephens, the man had just experienced the most horrible thing anyone can witness. But he said there was "no doubt" in his mind Brent was the killer. He didn't say he was not sure, or that he was to upset to identify anyone. He was willing to take Brent's' life away without a second thought. His wife was killed by a black, and he wanted a black to pay for it. If the police were to have a case against Brent, they had to the make Mr. Stephens identification come true. So they framed Brent.

Then there's the state attorney. The cops had no evidence against Brent. No gun, no fingerprints, no money, nothing at all. Only Mr Stephens identfication of Brent as the shooyer. His prosecution was purely politically. He was tried to protect the honor of the cops that beat and threaten the child into signing the so called confession.The state did no investigation outside what the police had told them. The cops words were enough for the state.

You have to think where in the world did the law enforcement people in Jacksonville come from? And how in the hell did they every get jobs serving and protecting the public? And most of all you must think how are they still employed in the system? They are not fit to serve and protect. With people like them upholding the law, you can only imagine how many innocent people there are in jail, in prison, or even on death row, because we have laws being enforced by these people. Thank God they have been shown as the inept liars they are. Now, thanks to HBO the entire country knows what incompetent fools they are.

Thank God Brenton had the fantastic defense team that he had. Pat McGuinness and Ann Finnell are public defenders in Jacksonville Fl., and I personally want to thank them for the good job they did defending Brent. The people of Fl. should be proud to pay their salaries. These lawyers could work anywhere, yet the choose to work for a fraction of what they could earn in the private sector. They are true heroes.

The assistant state attorney Laura Starrett told the jury in her closing argument, to believe that the cops in the case against Brent beat and tortured him into signing a confession "was to believe in a conspiracy worthy of Oliver Stone". She was right on some of that statement. The conspiracy part, the cops and the state conspired to frame Brent. Only they weren't nearly as smart as Oliver Stone.

Hollywood And Courage

You have to give credit to people in Hollywood who speak out against the President, and The Iraq War. These celebrities are really courageous. They stand for their convictions at the risk of financial loss, and damage to their image.You have to admire people like that, who put their principals above money, popularity, and all the time knowing they will be demonized for speaking out.

Some say they don't know what's going on, and that they should just be entertainers and leave policy matters to politicians. I say most of them were against this stupid war from day one. And that in itself shows us that the celebrities that spoke out against invading Iraq then were more in the loop than the politicians, or the pundits that got us into the mess we now have in Iraq. If the some people in Washington had listened to Hollywood, then maybe the decent policy maker who let G.W. Bush persuade them to sign on to his gung ho rush to war would have their reputations in tact, and have the credibility they need today to speak out against Bush on his Iraq policy.

Some celebrities who had the audacity to voice opinions that were anti Bush did suffer in their careers (Dixie Chicks and others). Yet they stuck to their guns, took the blows, and when all was said and done, they were proved correct. They had more courage than a lot of Congress people and media people could only have wished for. I also think most of the media should share the blame for cheering Bush on in the lead up to the war.

The media didn't do it's job and investigate the truth of Bush's claims about the threat Saddam supposedly posed to America. The media just repeated Bush's lies. It surly would not taken that much investigating on the part of the media to uncover the realty of Bush's claims. Night Ridder was the only media outlet that took the small amount of time and effort needed to look into what Bush was saying, and report the facts. Night Ridder conclusion: Iraq had no W.M.Ds. Very few media outlets in this country did what the outspoken celebrities and Night Ridder newspaper did: Question the administration. No one should be demonized for speaking out. If anything they should be applauded. The so called mainstream media would not even conceive of having anyone on their t.v. shows that dared to say Bush was wrong. The only t.v. media that let dissenters on air was CSPAN.

With all that was going against them at the time, including the news media, some celebrities still stood up and spoke out. They showed they are true patriots, regardless of what personal pitfalls would, and did come their way. Courage under pressure. That is a human trait anyone should be proud to have.
