Oct 16th 2009 11:00PM Damn skippy! And it's about time! $100 trillion wouldn't be enough to pay Black Americans back for what they have contributed to this country. They built it with blood, sweat and tears.
If it wasn't for black people, the U.S.A. would probably still be the 13 colonies. Do you know what that is? Dumb ass.
Sep 6th 2008 4:54PM Some people choose to not marry the first guy who gets in their pants and knocks them up; they want to wait for a decent man. If it takes 20 years to do that, so be it. They are probably better mothers because they don't have all that drama in their lives that younger people inevitably have. They can provide more stability, both financial, intellectual and emotional, to their children's lives. It's sad that some people like you still think that the only good mothers are those under 30.
Sep 5th 2008 4:12PM I like that!! I realized that I am a SKANK - Single Kidlike Adult No Kids. I am enjoying my "second childhood" while my friends are starting in on having second children, buying houses, etc. So I buy the kids souvenirs when I'm traveling or clothes when I'm shopping.
Feb 27th 2008 9:25PM Star Jones was definitely right to stand up and say what she said.
That being said, Michelle Obama is smart enough to know not to say what she did, no matter what context she meant for it to be taken in. I'm a black woman who has always voted Democrat but cannot fathom why everybody has fallen in love with Barack Obama. He can give some good speeches, but when pressed on his stands on issues, he becomes defensive or uneasy. He's spineless. With that problem, he will never be able to beat McCain in the general election.
Feb 27th 2008 8:46PM I am a black woman who fully supports Clinton. If we go into the general election with Obama as the nominee, we will surely lose. Now Rep. John Lewis, a superdelegate who formerly supported Clinton, has announced he is switching to Obama. He is being pressured to switch by politicos within the DNC.
The debate clearly unnerved Obama. Clinton was right to bring up the point of the media favoring Obama, but she should have done it before or after the debate. The media loves Obama and they are doing everything possible to knock her down and make her look like a harpie.
I knew that this election would show whether America is more racist or sexist. We've found in the primary how sexist America still is. I think we will find in the general election how racist America still is. Obama is in for the surprise of his life.

I agreed with you 100%! After the debate one someone said Hillary nippicked Obama by stated.."When a group wanted to support her during her run for senator, she out right rejected there support." When in turn it was the host who asked the question again. Here is the transcript word for word.
On Sunday, the headline in your hometown paper, Chicago Tribune: "Louis Farrakhan Backs Obama for President at Nation of Islam Convention in Chicago." Do you accept the support of Louis Farrakhan?
SEN. OBAMA: You know, I have been very clear in my denunciation of Minister Farrakhan's anti-Semitic comments. I think that they are unacceptable and reprehensible. I did not solicit this support. He expressed pride in an African-American who seems to be bringing the country together. I obviously can't censor him, but it is not support that I sought. And we're not doing anything, I assure you, formally or informally with Minister Farrakhan.
MR. RUSSERT: Do you reject his support?
SEN. OBAMA: Well, Tim, you know, I can't say to somebody that he can't say that he thinks I'm a good guy. (Laughter.) You know, I -- you know, I -- I have been very clear in my denunciations of him and his past statements, and I think that indicates to the American people what my stance is on those comments.
MR. RUSSERT: The problem some voters may have is, as you know, Reverend Farrakhan called Judaism "gutter religion."
Nov 10th 2007 9:53PM Jim Oshust knows that what he is saying is so idiotic that he calls himself "J.Barfalo". He's like Charlie Brown with the cloud hanging over him. Jim Oshust has never had a girlfriend and even his mother doesn't like him. Jim Oshust flunked out of the 11th grade, his best grade being an F+ in Shop; he would have gotten a D- but he couldn't figure out how to pull the drill out of his a$$. Jim Oshust goes to church on Sunday, comes home, jacks off to a picture of his sister then cracks open a can of Alpo for his dinner.
Sep 30th 2007 3:21PM Christina is married to a decent man, doesn't go around showing her snatch to paparazzi, has not been to rehab once because she doesn't need to go, and can actually sing. She has won hands down in life, not just in some little feud. I remember when they first came out big time, my friends and I got in an argument about which of them would be around the longest (we were drunk on a Saturday night). Genius that I am, I said Britney. My bad!!
And could somebody please explain to me why people spell Britney as "Brittany" when the f'ing spelling is right on the page?!?!
Sep 30th 2007 3:03PM I had to read this thread to see how many people would use the "N" word. Surprisingly, I haven't seen it. Hate to burst your bubble, but not all rap fans are ignoramuses who cannot spell. Some are MDs, PhDs and/or JDs (such as myself). I find few things more amusing than seeing a carload of little white kids blasting rap music and speeding down the street. Most American music, whether it be folk, country or rock, is derived from black music, either gospel or African drums. But white people despise blacks so much that they would never admit it. It's so much easier to just say "rap isn't music" or "Bob Dylan invented rap". What stupid B.S. is that?? Bob Dylan would be just another dirty, grimy hippie without black music. Your precious Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rolling Stones at least admit that they would be nowhere without black music. Everybody else just fakes the funk. So once you stop generalizing about all black people and black music, we (or I) will stop generalizing about all white musicians being wannabe player-haters.
Jun 25th 2007 7:44PM People, where the heck did you go to school? Almost nobody on these message boards can spell or use proper puctuation or grammar. And don't say that you're typing fast; that's no excuse for writing "common cents" instead of "common sense". Instead of worrying about Christina so much, go get a GED or take a refresher English class. And God help us if any of you are teaching our children.
Jun 25th 2007 3:54PM I agree with everything said about Bare Escentuals. I am 37 and have either not worn makeup (besides lipstick or gloss) at all or only on special occasions because it usually looks fake or irritates my sensitive skin. But I was at Sephora and a salesman applied the Bare Minerals powder and I was sold. I have worn it almost every day since then (about 6 months) and have branched out to the eye shadows now. It makes my skin feel soft and I haven't experienced any breakouts. And the infomercial was right... you can actually sleep in it. Also, it is made for all different skin tones, so I was able to get just the right color for my light brown complexion.
