What Tavis has been guzzling all day.  ROFL

Is it me, or did Tavis try his damndest to get the afternoon panel into doing the hating on the POTUS that the morning panel wouldn’t?

Looks like the afternoon panel isn’t buying it, either.  Actually, Julianne Malveaux, Al Sharpton, Lani Guinier, Erica Williams and most notably, Randall Robinson, stopped Brotha Tavis in his tracks.

Give Michael Steele half a prop for even showing up on behalf to the GOP and being willing to take ass-waxings from both Malveaux and Sharpton.  Unless he shows up in our communities talking about what the GOP can do for US without going on their Saltine tip as they are wont to do, we’re still not listening, and will probably slam the door in his face faster than the we do when the Jehovah’s Witnesses come calling.

Until we see an interactive SOBU where the audience is the main focus, the active participants, and there is less pontificating and lecturing like most African-Americans have no sense, I think future 4th Saturdays in February can be better spent elsewhere, doing something worthwhile in taking back our communities.

Some of you wrote good comments in the Open Thread, and I want to share a couple of them here.

From MyPOV123:

Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?? LOL And I can’t stand Cornel West, either. How can you call someone “bougie” when you’re a professor at Princeton?? (Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I’m just pointing out his hypocrisy) Why didn’t he offer his brilliant mind to the students at Morehouse or Howard University. He and Tavis can go anytime.

From EclecticBrotha:

Tavis hates on Harvard brothas to Lani Guinier, a professor at Harvard.

Irony cubed.

P. S.  The women on this board think Van Jones is one finnnne brotha and that Mrs. Van Jones is one lucky woman!  LOL.

From devessel:

Vaaaaaaan! (he’s actually pushing his own book, but he’s tellin’ truth and he looks real good doin’ it.) Give Pookie a job and beat the recession AND green the economy.

From Parker404:

His line about Clinton buying us with a saxophone and knowledge of gospel music made my day.

I’ll bet Tavis doesn’t invite Robinson back.

Actually, parker, I bet it will be more than Mr. Robinson that doesn’t get an invite to next year’s Negro Super Bowl.  Add Rev. Dyson to that list because he dropped some serious knowledge on us today with this line:

“What do we do with who Barack Obama IS?” Ouch.

And, from the one and only Town:


When will black folks stop kissing Obama’s ass and start criticizing him for not kissing mine?

This is the reason I’m so glad to be back posting.  The JJP posters are a unique and incomparable group that I love to engage in debate and discussion, and what I have sorely missed.  Blame Comcast and the deregulation that held me hostage because I had to fire Comcast before being able to give my business to Verizon.

If I didn’t mention you by name, please know I wasn’t snubbing you; so many of you made good comments, but these were the ones I felt summed up this afternoon’s “Get Yo’ Shyt Together” lectures.

It’s good to be home, y’all.
