The List of Toms

I'm feeling pissy today, between one of my favorite cartoons taking a major turn for the worse and pandering (Boondocks) to the continued bullshit on the radio (Michael Baseden and Wendy Williams), as a black woman, I'm am fed up. I'm thinking up about putting up a list of all these black "personalities" who take it upon themselves to degrade the race on a daily basis. The names mentioned above will become the first of my "List of Toms," and I will catalog their antics as a handy-dandy reference guide to remind myself and others as to why the black state is what it is. I'll try not to go into my psycho-rants, I'll probably just put up quotes, very simple, very easy to digest. Don't worry, I'll still posts my occasional brain-farts in-between, but someone should point this garbage out. We let too much wash over us and I'm sick of it.

Let's add NBC to the list.

Ever feel like crying and don't know why?

Hard on the heels of the below brain fart regarding the cartoon Boondocks last night, I need to expand on the thought.

You might think that this once-great cartoon has nothing to do with anything, it's just TV - but that's the thing, TV is just about EVERYTHING to most people (couch potatoes). Apparently, it's only the negative stuff that makes it to TV as well as the rest of the media we consume. White men has always had that market cornered, but black men are catching up, especially since they realized that the quickest way to get there is to shit on their women. Positivity just doesn't sell, right fellas?

It's insane as there are so many black women trying to "keep hope alive," thinking black men will see the error of their ways and start defending and loving them again, it would be funny if it wasn't so fucking tragic. These images have impact, and Americans as a collective are already stupid, beaten sheep, so the majority are very easily swayed (which is why Jeb Bush will be the next president if Dubya doesn't cancel the election altogether). More than happy to drink whatever swill is offered to them, not knowing any better or caring. Don't get me wrong, as much as I respect the advancements mankind has made to make our lives a bit more comfortable, I truly dislike the human race and discovering that the human race feels the same way about me as a black woman only encourages me to keep this up. It's kind of cathartic and maybe, just maybe, someone will understand and be encouraged too. Maybe.

Remember when Whoopi Goldberg was funny and thought-provoking? Boy, did she make people uncomfortable back in the day, and it was fantastic! With those dreads, dark skin, the white boys (cut love scene from 'Fatal Beauty' anyone)? She blew my ten-year-old mind as she got the guy at the end of Jumping Jack Flash. I guess even rebels get tired of the fight; now she's on the View, sitting there looking stupid as Damon Wayans attempts to become relevant again by digging up the Imus thing. Sigh.

Is it just me...

...or did the Boondocks change from a thought-provoking cartoon into some kind of Full Metal Alchemist anime shit? And once again black men aren't responsible for any fucking thing. Oh Aaron, I thought you were different, you're just like the rest of them, ugh.

My Gmail Skins review on Mozilla Add-ons.com...

...which I am quite proud of. Pretty good for someone too lazy to learn css.

"This was a great little extension - too great. The good folks at Google decided since they cannot make their email interface look good, no one can so they decide to revamp, rendering Gmail Skins useless. Unless someone out there can "crack the code," there's not much you can do except change the language to English (UK). Gmail Skins still won't work, but you'll still be able to use the Better Gmail extension and whatever you can find at userstyles.org

I think the creator of Gmail Skins no longer wants to be bothered with this so that's probably why you won't get a reply, he could have at least said as much."

Fun Fact # 724...you can find people stupider than you on YouTube Comments.

... you cannot be stupider than me, EVER! Am I really so heady that I have to explain a joke to you! I think not, you're just a MORON! Witness the following, buried under that hysterical Chriss Angel/Jim Callahan clip from that horrible American Idol-for-fake-magician show with the spoon-bending guy:

"ME" (23 hours ago)
(Reply) (Spam)
Maybe THIS show should be called "Bullshit!"

(Reply) (Spam)
Penn and Teller already took that title.

Uuuuuuummmmm, yeah, that's why I made the joke! Penn and Teller has followed in the footsteps of James Randi in a way with their Showtime series and wether Angel was grandstanding or not, he went into de-bunker mode himself in that clip. As much as I'd like to, I can't hate him and I thought the whole thing hysterical. Then this twit spoils my good feelings. I really hate stupid people.

Was anybody really looking for this?

Hoping to resuscitate his sputtering career, Michael Jackson is reportedly returning to a reliable source: his own 1982 album Thriller. According to reports, Jackson plans to spruce up the 25th anniversary addition of the album by adding four remixes of Thriller tracks. Those lending a helping sequined gloved hand on the remixes for “Wanna Be Startin’ Something,” “The Girl Is Mine,” “Billie Jean,” and “P.Y.T.” are Kanye West, Akon, and Will.i.am. More...

Well the new stuff wasn't cutting it so why not? If you can love R. Kelly, you can love Jacko - he was doing the kiddie-diddling thing first, a true innovator!

...or would that be Gary Glitter?
