(chrisTwire Idaho)—Yes, it is that dreaded time of the year again, it is black history month. A time to celebrate Obama’s black half and hate Obama’s white half. This year’s black history month is 29 days. That is an extra three percent more suffering and racism that non-black people have to tolerate.
However, I have respect for all peoples in this great melting pot of America (we just wish a few of us actually melted) and we bring two new short profiles of Blacks in America.
Tracy Morgan in the News
Tracy Morgan is a black hero. And why not, he plays black people so well. His character in 30 Rock is so typical of the average African American that he deserves a lifetime Emmy for his portrayal. And just this week, news broke that his mom is in financial ruin and about to have her home foreclosed over a paltry $25,000. 25 Grand may seem a lot to a black or a creditor loaning money to a black applicant. But tracy Morgan is worth millions of dollars. He could easily help his mom out for what he spends on Boost Mobile service for his entourage alone.
But Tracy Morgan’s Mom, Alicia Warden, has publically stated that her son has ignored her requests for help
“For reasons that are between us,” the “30 Rock” star stated, “I have not seen my mother in 11 years, and outside of a random call here and there have had little to no contact with my sister.
Warden replies, “There’s nothing for me to lie about,” and points out that her son invited scrutiny when he wrote about his family and upbringing in his memoir, “I Am The New Black.”
“People are saying that we’re airing our dirty laundry, but he’s the one who wrote about us first,” says Warden. “He can’t keep telling lies and expect me to be quiet about it.”
On Wednesday night, Warden, who says she owes less than $25,000 on her home, appeared on Youngstown, Ohio, CBS affiliate WKBN-TV to talk about her plight.
“People don’t know me,” she told us. “I want to tell my side of the story.”
She says she still loves her son, and, referring to her TV appearance, notes: “He hasn’t seen me in a long time. Now he sees how I look.”
Cassanova McKinzy loves Chick-fil-A
What’s really important to a college football athlete when choosing the right school? Location, academics, the ability to start early?
How about a school’s proximity to Chick-fil-A?
That’s apparently what swayed Birmingham, Ala., linebacker Cassanova McKinzy (his black name) from Clemson to Auburn. When McKinzy visited the Clemson campus, there was no Chick-fil-A in sight, and that just wasn’t acceptable.
“[It was] kind of the environment and plus they had no Chick-fil-A on campus,” McKinzy said when asked why he didn’t choose Clemson “You had to go like, probably like 15 minutes off campus to go to like a real restaurant. Their café was kind of small.”
Never mind that there is a Chick-fil-A on Clemson’s campus. Clearly this crucial fact was not highlighted on McKinzy’s visit. And if you’ve ever been to a Chick-fil-A, you can sympathize with McKinzy. There’s no better way to start a morning than with a spicy chicken biscuit and no better way to settle into an evening of studying than with some waffle fries.
