Aug 1st 2007 6:00PM Having had 2 wonderful pregnancies, I think it's great that women, such as Elisabeth, can show the world what a beautiful pregnant belly looks like. I found myself smiling a big grin as she was so genuine and spontaneous. Barbara darling, get a life!!
Apr 12th 2007 11:55PM As a black woman, I am so fed up w/"colored" people, "niggers", "negros", assuming that I find offense w/these words. This is what we call each other, for God's sake, what is the problem?? Everyone takes everything so G.D. seriously. PEOPLE - LIGHTEN UP!! Everything has to be so P.C. I'm sick of tripping over my words in order to say the right thing. As my mom always said, "call a spade a spade" and "look at the kettle calling the pot black". I'm sure some lamebrain will insinuate that that's related to black people. What an imagination! And Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? What have you done for us lately or anyone else for that matter, besides make trouble and $$ at others' expense?? You're both blowhards who have no life, instead, you suck off of others in order to justify your own life, which amounts to nothing. Have you gone out of your way for a white person? I have "white" friends, or should I say "honkys" or "caucasians". BFD!! Words only have meaning when you give them a definition or more relevance than they truly have. Yes, I am a "black" person of "negroid" ancestry, but do I let that get in my way? I have more important things to do w/my life like raising a family and contributing to improving this world we ALL live in. And furthermore, enough said about our slavery and how we're "victimized". I NEVER use the race card and refuse to. Yeah, I could milk it by saying "I'm just a woman" "I'm black, so handle w/care", "It's because of our past and how people treat us" ad nauseum. Enough already! These are just excuses and they get in your way and you can use them to avoid a life of meaning, but using them victimizes you and is that what you want? Not me. I'm black, beautiful and a smart woman, but I make no excuses for myself and don't use the race card to get ahead or get one over someone. Get a life people! The comment by Imus could have easily been disregarded, instead people are capitalizing on it. If Howard Stern, who makes millions for his network, said this, and believe me, he gets away w/a lot more insensitive remarks. Objectification of women, anyone? Yeah, I could go off on that one too, but refuse to give him the time of day. I actually enjoyed listening to Imus and found his irreverent comments refreshing in the times that we live in. I'll miss him.
