"Walk a mile in our shoes"...


now we all have heard about this...if not if you have common sense you can pretty much see whats going on...i tried to stay away from this one but i just couldnt. It bothers me way too much...anyone in their right mind can look at this cartoon and see the masked racial message that is being portrayed. Although President Obama didnt "write" the stimulus, which was the excuse that was used. What does this chimp have to do with the stimulus, that they had to depict cops shooting a monkey to make a joke about current events?...if the joke is about "even a crazed chimp could of wrote the stimulus" then it would of been a complemetely different drawing. This cartoonist knew exactly what he was doing when he drew this. Everyone knows the racial comparison between Blacks and monkeys that white people branded us with..its the same white people who branded people of dark skin from the middle east as "sandmonkies" and "sandniggers" after 9-11....depicting a monkey as a black person has became like a modern day "black face" ......so playing dumb about not realizing the racial message behind that cartoon is nothing but BULLSHIT!!!...anyone including white people in their right minds can see the insensitive and crude racial humor in it..alot of republicans and alot of other white people are having a blast looking at it in the comfort of thier home but will look you in your face and say "no this isnt racist at all are you serious? i dont see it..its just a joke about current events"....what we all have to do is look at the resume of this cartoonist which will prove my point in which he knew exactly what he was doing...."Sean Delonas" the cartoonist has made other racial and anti-gay cartoons in the past that has been posted in the New York Post. So the post has a history of coming out with offensive things. The point is that you can never understand another point of view if your mind is biased,until its you in the opposing postion then thats when shit hits the fan right?...being black in america is like being the only white person in a katt williams show lol..even tho that was a joke its being completely honest...a white person is like the man on stage and were the ones in the crowd getting attacked in all ways possible...we've learned to deal with it of course but when shit gets thrown in our face like this article which is a spit in the face to the african american community because we see the message behind it, it turns into a "slavery was 400 years ago get over it..stop being bitter" type thing...it has nothing to with being bitter,it has EVERYTHING to do with the ignorance of whites (not all of course..jus generally speaking),racial profiling,and the hidden racism we have to deal with on an everyday basis. Until they get put into that position the people who are "pro" this article will NEVER understand where we are coming from. For example my best freind is white,and this one day we had a meeting with a lawyer for an accident that happened and im dressed pretty casually like button up shirt,slacks and nice shoes and hes wearing like cargo shorts and a regular shirt..and he's like "you know..you dont have to dress all fancy.were just going to talk bout a few things"....i had to explain to him that "me, being an african american young male i HAVE TO go the extra mile with certain things, if im going somewhere like that..i can not go dressed up in cargo shorts and skateboarding shirt..i have to dress presentable..we have to EARN those peoples respect..its not just given to us like it is given to you...you can walk in dressed like that and you get looked at as a "surfer/skateboarder" type dude at the worst...i walk in there dressed-down i automatically get labeled a gangsta or something of the sort..." and he quikly understood where i was coming from...but he didnt even look it that way because white people generally dont have to go the extra mile like we do...so they dont understand where were coming from unless you sit them down and deeply explain it to them....i can go on and on about the racial profiling thing thats why i tried to stay away from this 1 lol...but this is getting wayyyy too longgg!!!! lol i dont want to bore my followers with these long ass blogs lol

p.s. to any followers or readers that took any offense to anything i wrote..please dont..i wasnt attacking white people as a whole when i refer to "white people" i know many good-hearted white people without even a spec of racism in em..im speaking generally thats all...and to all the other races of color or any other nationalities that get racially profiled ,dont feel left out lol i was just focusing on the african american side of it because of the article content..


  1. i would like to 1st agree that yes this bloq is od lonq... lmfao and 2nd i read tha news paper every day at work, well i really just do tha suduko puzzles that are in tha comics section when i saw tha cartoon with my own eyes in tha news paper me and my jamaican coworker went crazy... i asked tha "white" manager in my job what he thought it meant... just at random and no he didnt vote for obama but he completly agreed that the cartoon was wrong and he could see through " the joke " this was before all of it hit tha 10 oclock news... it was crazy here in New York mad rallies... but i completly agree... i look white so people dont judge me... african americans go through so much for bullshit reasons... my mom says thats why she thinks that african americans are so successful now, because they suffered so much in their past... (karma) african americans are the best singers best actors funniest comidans* and of course the best in almost every major sport ( football, basketball, golf, tennis ) *off topic * you kno you love my mom =]

  2. WOW; if i can just add to this one...
    there's sooo much racial profiling that it's ridiculous. ALTHOUGH we have come along way with history nd all; somethings will just never change, as well as some people. I remember being in the 7th grade when i experienced it first hand nd actually understood. I tried out for cheerleading nd was the ONLY african american to make the team. NOT only did i get degraded by the white people as though cheerleading is ONLY for white people; but ALSO by the black people who felt i wasn't "black enough". im pretty sure i'm black by my ancestors, NOT by the sports i participate in. RIGHT? well girls would write about me on the bathroom stalls; shove me into lockers; smack taco sauce packets in the back of my head nd i would end up crying every night before bed. BUT; when i stepped on to tht sideline or basketball court I WAS A DAMN GOOD CHEERLEADER. nd turned out to be a very memorable one. WOULD YOU BELIVE the school i cheer'd for which started out with ONE african american cheerleader [ME] now has a majority of african american cheerleaders on the team. soo; by not quitting or giving in to the hype tht those bullshit females/racial profiling people brought to my life at such a young age i changed the thoughts of peoples minds. Just because of someone's race or gender doesn't mean that they can't be just as good as the next race/gender. Although we may have to work extra hard to get there; it doesn't make it impossible. so with that said;to ANYBODY who thinks they can't do something because of this whole racial profiling shit. [ DO IT ] because the only person that can stop you from trying is YOU..

    sorry BIFF for lettin that out on your comments but you got deep on this one.LOVE UU
