WHY I HATE THE SOUTH: VOLUME 20

June 5, 2010

Sorry, but it’s not particularly shocking that somebody from South Carolina would use a racist ethnic slur. What’s astounding is that the offending party making the slur is a candidate for governor and the person he repeatedly called a “raghead” is a fellow gubernatorial candidate.

On an Internet radio show Thursday, a Republican candidate for governor of South Carolina named Jake Knotts attacked the party’s primary front-runner, Nikki Haley. Haley is a Baptist and a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives. She was recently endorsed by Sarah Palin.That endorsement put Haley atop the polls heading into the state’s Republican primary. A desperate Knotts, not satisfied to jump on the Nikki-Haley-is-a-slut  bandwagon, stepped up the campaign rhetoric. It turns out Haley is a TERRORIST slut. Knotts said of her:

“We already got one raghead in the White House. We don’t need a raghead in the governor’s mansion.”

Holy crap! Welcome to American politics, 2010. Apparently, we’re not in a “post-racial” political environment after all. Haley’s parents are from India. Knotts also implied that, like President Obama, Haley is a secret Muslim. I’d mention the name of the radio show that Knotts was on when he made his outrageously racist comments, but they’re literally too stupid to post the audio of the interview, so obviously they don’t want the publicity. The “raghead” comments were so insane and over-the-top, even for South Carolina, that the far-right website Redstate.com told Knotts to literally “Die In A Fire, You Vicious Racist Scumbag.”

Knotts clarified his comments by claiming his “raghead” comments were a time-honored comedy bit and reiterating that Haley is a secret Muslim.

All of this literally reminds me of the last ime I set foot in South Carolina. I met a female client for lunch at the Myrtle Beach House of Blues. She happened to be African-American. When we approached the host and asked to be seated, he shockingly asked, “Together??!!??”

This incident didn’t happen at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in 1961. It was at a House of Blues in the 2000’s, 30 feet from the entranceway where you literally walk under the chain’s “Unity in Diversity” motto. On that same trip, we attended a celebrity golf tournament at one of Myrtle Beach’s most  prestigious country clubs. Of course, they had a lawn jockey.

It was next to that very lawn jockey that I saw one of the most amazing things I’ve ever witnessed in two decades of covering sports-famed politcal activist and former Cleveland Browns running back Jim Brown hitting a tee shot. Next to that lawn jockey. In fairness, that lawn jockey was removed. IN MAY OF 2010.

SEATTLE COPS PRODUCE THE NEW RODNEY KING

Seattle is the center of a racial firestorm following the release of a video showing two city police officers beating and kicking a Latino man while threatening to “Beat the f****** Mexican piss out of you, homey!”

Police were investigating a robbery in the area. The suspect, who one officer kicked in the head, turned out to be completely innocent. Like the 1991 Rodney King beating in Los Angeles, the entire incident was caught on video tape.

Although reports are that the beating was filmed by a “freelance photographer,” that’s entirely not true. Jud Morris was actually being paid by KCPQ-TV (Q13) when he shot the video. He was driving a Q-13 van and shot the footage on a Q-13 camera. Unbelievably, channel 13 refused to air the video which it had a month ago. The station then FIRED Morris. The story has become nearly as big of a scandal for Q13 as it has for the Seattle police.

There is speculation that KCPQ originally refused to air the video because of their close relationship with Seattle police. One source said the television show “Washington’s Most Wanted” is the station’s top money maker and KCPQ didn’t want to jeopardize its close relationship with law enforcement.

The video has caused an uproar with civil rights and Latin-American groups throughout the Seattle area. None of the officers involved in the incident has been disciplined in any fashion. They are all on active duty. None have been placed on administrative leave.

MISSISSIPPI SCHOOLS STILL SEGREGATED

April 14, 2010

Fifty-five years after the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case ended the concept of “seperate but equal,” Mississippi schools are STILL practicing segregation. A federal court judge Tuesday ordered Walthall County in Mississippi to “stop segregating its schools.”

The school district in Walthall County was grouping African-American students into all-black classrooms then allowing hundreds of white students to transfer. As a result, the county had one “white” school.

Judge Thomas E. Perez ripped the school district calling their behavior “unacceptable.” Perez said the school district’s policy not only permitted segregation but encouraged it.

CHARLES BARKLEY RIPS MASTERS HEAD/WHITE GUY AS AN “UNCLE TOM”

April 9, 2010

Former NBA great Charles Barkley has long been a friend of Tiger Woods. If the tabloids are to be believed, Barkley has even mentored the golfer in the fine art of adultery.

Yesterday, Barkley went on FoxSports Radio to defend Woods. Billy Payne, the Augusta National chairman and head of the Masters golf tournament had blasted Woods earlier in the week. Payne criticized Woods for letting down “our children and grandchildren” at the Masters press conference on Wednesday. Barkley responded by calling Payne a “punk ass” and an “Uncle Tom” during yesterday’s radio interview.

The interview may mark the first time in history that a white man has been referred to as an “Uncle Tom” (a fictional character from the Harriet Beecher Stowe novel.)

Barkley also added, “I wish someone would just walk up and punch him (Payne) in the face.”

As we reported via “Extra” tv over the weekend, the mistress of Jesse James has the refrigerator magnets in her house arranged to spell out the phrase “go white power.”

James is married to actress Sandra Bullock. The mistress, Michelle McGee, has two young children and has modeled in Nazi outfits. TMZ also ran photos of the scars McGee has from bullet wounds.

TEA PARTY PROTESTERS DROP “N” BOMB ON CIVIL RIGHTS HERO

JOHN LEWIS QUESTIONED BY REPORTERS ABOUT RACIAL SLURS DIRECTED AT HIM SATURDAY

Angry over the possible passage of a health care bill, Tea Party members screamed the N-word at a pair of African-American congressmen in Washington D.C. Saturday. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia and Andre Carson of Indiana were subjected to taunts and racial slurs.

Lewis is a civil rights icon who marched and gave speeches with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1960s. He was famously beaten nearly to death by racist Alabama state troopers who fractured his skull in the “Bloody Sunday” incident in 1965.

Another congressman, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II of Missouri, was spit on by demonstrators Saturday. Meanwhile, a New York congresswoman had a brick thrown through her office window.

ANOTHER REASON I HATE THE SOUTH

January 23, 2010

Ok, it’s bad enough that some racist assclown wants to start an all-white basketball league, but now the idea is apparently getting support from many people in the southern U.S.

We posted on Wednesday about how WJBF TV in Augusta, Georgia polled its viewers on whether or not an all-white basketball league was a good idea. SPORTSbyBROOKS has the updated numbers. An astonishing 60% WJBF viewers are IN FAVOR of whites only basketball.

If you think that poll was an an anomaly, check out the one run by the Fox affiliate in Atlanta: HERE

In that poll, 54% of the respondents said they didn’t think a basketball league that employs only whites was racist. Just one more reason that Atlanta is the most overrated city in America.
