Ho Sit Down: Over the Hill Civil Rights Gang Keep Dissin’ Barack

Posted by Bossip Staff

Andrew Young Barack Obama

Now is when the political thuggin begins. Someone needs to tell the old “over the hill” civil rights gang their time is up, that old sh*t is not working. Former Atlanta mayor Andrew Young and Hilary Clinton’s camp have some things to say about our man Barack Obama:

“It is not a matter of being inexperienced,” Young told an Atlanta crowd this fall. “It is a matter of being young. There is a certain matter of maturity … You have to have a protective network around you… Leadership requires suffering. And I would like to see Barack’s children get a little older, see, because they’re going to pick on them.”

“To put a brother in there by himself is to set him up for crucifixion.” He also joked that author Toni Morrison may have been on to something when she referred to former President Bill Clinton as the “first black president.”

“Bill (Clinton) is every bit as black as Barack,” he said. “He has probably gone out with more black women than Barack.”

Young’s remarks come as Obama is battling with Hillary for support in the black community. Rev. Jesse Jackson, who had endorsed Obama, has been critical of the presidential candidate in recent weeks. Rev. Al Sharpton has said that he has not decided if he will support Obama.

An advisor from Hilary Clinton Camp states:

“Senator Obama is a fabulous orator, but we need more than words. We don’t need someone who says one thing and does another, somebody who talks a good game but doesn’t have the courage of their convictions. And on issue after issue, Senator Obama says one thing and does another.”

Al Sharpton, Messy Jesse Jackson, and Andrew Young get a big, Ho Sit Down! It’s 2007, you’re time is up!

Barack At The Apollo

Barack Obama Cornell West

Barack Obama packed the Apollo Theater in Harlem last night and here are a few quotes from his speech:

“Telling the American people what we think they want to hear instead of what they need to hear just won’t do” in this election, Obama said at the historic theater, just down the street from Bill Clinton’s office.

“I’m not running because I’m trying to fulfill some long-held plans. I’m not running because I somehow think this is owed to me. I never expected to be here. Avoiding answering tough questions because we’re worried they might not be popular just won’t do. Poll-testing positions because we’re worried about what Mitt [Romney] or Rudy [Giuliani] might say about this just won’t do.” Continue »

Time Magazine asked Barack Obama some questions yesterday:

How do you deal with the idea that some people might not vote for you because of your race?

“Racism is a function of our society. There are some people who aren’t going to vote for me because I’ve got big ears. Part of my optimism about Americans is that I don’t think they expect me to be deracialized in order to represent them.”

Jesse Jackson Takes Swipe at Obama

Posted by Bossip Staff

jessejacksonobama81.JPG

Messy Jesse Jackson recently took a silent swipe at Barack Obama:

Yet the Democratic candidates — with the exception of John Edwards, who opened his campaign in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward and has made addressing poverty central to his campaign — have virtually ignored the plight of African Americans in this country. The catastrophic crisis that engulfs the African-American community goes without mention. No urban agenda is given priority. When thousands of African Americans marched in protest in Jena, La., not one candidate showed up.

SMH. Barack Obama doesn’t have to show up at a Jena 6 rally, he is playing the game, to win.

That old 60′s, out of date and out of touch civil rights game is not going to help Obama get anywhere. SMH.

According to a recent study, the majority of Black voters support Hillary over Obama. In other Obama news for the day, Oprah is co-signing his campaign with her stacks and scheduled public appearances.

Barack Obama on smoking weed back in the day:

“I did,” the senator from Illinois said to light applause. “It’s not something I’m proud of. It was a mistake as a young man.” The question was a reference to a line made famous by former President Bill Clinton who, while admitting to trying marijuana, said he did not inhale.

“I never understood that line,” Obama continued. “The point was to inhale. That was the point.”

Republicans are already blasting Obama for setting a bad example for young people. We think someone who tells the truth and doesn’t speak sideways is setting a good example for young people.

Damn, you know some hypocritical politicians are going to play up he smoked rocks back in college. Bossip has his back!

“Talk to You Later, Buckwheat” Update

Posted by Bossip Staff

CarlaBlanchardDartez

We reported about this a few days ago and here is an update. The NAACP is urging voters to vote Republican in a Louisiana election because a Democratic senator, Rep. Carla Blanchard Dartez, ended a phone call with Hazel Boykin saying: “Talk to you later, Buckwheat.”

The nice old lady who was called the slur said:

“I’ve never had no one talk to me that way and I considered it a racial slur,” Hazel Boykin said. “I know the meaning of it, it’s just like the N-word.”

We have to kick these racist bastards out of office, Louisiana Stand UP and get that disrespectful bi*ch out of office.

“Talk to You Later, Buckwheat”

CarlaBlanchardDartez

A state representative in Louisiana is under fire for racist remarks towards the mother of a civil rights leader over the phone:

A state representative in a runoff election infuriated civil rights leaders after she ended a conversation with the mother of the NAACP’s local president by saying, “Talk to you later, Buckwheat.”

State Rep. Carla Blanchard Dartez, of Morgan City, acknowledged she made the remark during a Thursday night telephone conversation with Hazel Boykin to thank her for driving voters to the polls.

Buckwheat, a black child character in the “Little Rascals” comedies of the 1930s and ’40s, is viewed as a racial stereotype demeaning to black people. Hazel Boykin’s son, Jerome, is the NAACP’s president in Terrebonne Parish. She is well-known as a 1960s civil rights activist, helping to desegregate restaurants and the parish school system.

What the hell is wrong with this racist and disrespectful slut? She needs something like a cell phone beating by Naomi Campbell real quick, something real proppa-like.

What Happened To The Jena 6 Stacks????

Posted by Bossip Staff

Jena6money

The controversy over the accounting of millions of Jena 6 stacks is not going away. Some folks are forcing organizations and parents to account for all the money. A lawyer of one Jena 6 mother, Tina Jones, mother of defendant Purvis, still has $250K and her lawyer told her not to talk to anyone about the money:

“I think there are a lot of organizations out there collecting money on behalf of the Jena 6 that we didn’t give authorization for,” Jones said. “So when we’re called and asked, ‘Did you receive this money?’ and we know nothing about it, then it becomes a problem. The finger is being pointed at us. We’re not criticizing anybody. We’re just trying to get a handle on it.”

We have a feeling Jacob or a Sean Jean section in a store has seen some of that Jena 6 money. SMH.

Barack Apologizes

Posted by Bossip Staff

Hilary Clinton Barack Obama

Senator Barack Obama is now apologizing for an attack memo on Hillary Clinton that was leaked from his camp:

Obama was working the apology phones today and planning a formal apology, distancing himself from the memo, which was headlined, “HILLARY CLINTON (D-PUNJAB)’S PERSONAL FINANCIAL AND POLITICAL TIES TO INDIA,” It was prepared by the campaign’s opposition research department and distributed to reporters last week in exchange for a promise that reporters not reveal the source. So much for trusting the reporters. The memo got out. How? A reporter showed it to the Clinton campaign, who showed it to more reporters without seeking anonymity. So the original source was outted.

“In sum, our campaign made a mistake. Although I was not aware of the contents of the memo prior to its distribution, I consider the entire campaign – and in particular myself – responsible for the mistake. We have taken appropriate action to prevent errors like this from happening in the future.”

It was an honest mistake…we’re still rolling with Barack.  He just needs to make sure he tightens up that staff a bit.

Barack Obama on Saturday Night Live

Here is a clip of democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s special guest appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.

Quote of the Day

Barack Obama speaks at the MTV/Myspace forum:

“If I didn’t think I was the best president for the job, I wouldn’t be running. Your next president will believe in the Constitution, which you can’t say about your current president. Part of my job as president I think is to deliver a message that everybody is part of the American family. Not just some people. And obviously as somebody who is African-American — my mother is from Kansas, my father was from Kenya, I grew up in Indonesia, I have a sister who looks Spanish, I’ve got a brother in law who is Chinese-Canadian — I’m very sensitive to making sure that everybody feels a part of America. And that’s one of the things I think I can bring to this presidency. The day I’m inaugurated the country will look at itself differently and I think be more tolerant. Continue »

A Message For The Hoes

Posted by Bossip Staff

farrakhansuperhead9.jpg

Niccas can be hoes too. Minister Louis Farrakhan recently spoke to Hip-Hop leaders in the ATL:

“What you really are is not boob or butt. Force men to respect you. Black women are not for sale.”

“As long as a women is a b***h and a hoe in your mind, you will never stand up for her.  A record contract cannot get you your virtue back.”

The cum bucket Superhead, who tells her dwindling fans to stay away from Bossip and who also made the cover of ‘Today’s Black Woman’ , should have been in the audience.

Put Them Back in Jail

This is why the smart folks over here at Bossip don’t support Negro causes “just because” we are told to. Here is a picture of Robert Bailey Jr., a member of the Jena 6. According to a video on Youtube, he was braggin’ about thuggin’ on his Myspace and was caught showing off what looks to be Jena 6 Defense Fund stacks. SMH.

This is worse than Blood Diamond Russ’ partner Ben Chavis spending NAACP donations to keep a sex deal quiet or Blood Diamond Russ defending blood diamonds in Africa while being on the payroll of the diamond industry.

Barack Obama wants Justice Department official John Tanner fired for the following comments:

“Our society is such that minorities don’t become elderly the way white people do; they die first,” Tanner said. “There are inequities in health care,” Tanner continued. “There are a variety of inequities in this country. And so anything that disproportionately impacts the elderly has the opposite impact on minorities; just the math is such as that.”
