I'm ssooooo sorry i've been negligent to my loyal readers but my 9-5 has been kicking my @$$! Anyhoo, I'm back with some crazy ish!!!! Check out these racist rants by Adrienne Curry, America's Next Top Model winner, via her Myspace blog. So sad she thinks that black people need to "get over" slavery. This chick really needs a history lesson...
From Adrienne's Myspace blog post:
This is gonna be hard guys. I LOVE the comedians on BET. I also LOVE the
fact that they play my favorite show of all time, In Living Color. However, I do
not believe in seperating [sic] ANY RACE in America. WE ARE AMERICANS! How dare we have Black History Month! In my eyes, the Native Americans deserve it MUCH more, seeing how we destroyed their ENTIRE SOCIETY. There are hardly any of them left! They also have been proven to have the WORST living conditions on their reservations. I want AN AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH. One where we learn about EVERY race, ALL OF OUR LEADERS, EVERYONE! I think by having a month dedicated to one race, and not one for any other, is RACIST. Every fund set up to only help people of one race is SICK and RACIST.Yes, I get it. Black people were slaves here once. You know what? That does suck some major b*lls, however, it is time to move the f*ck on. Do we hear the Jews crying that they were made slaves for thousands of years? Do we hear them whine that they should OWN the pyramids in Egypt because THEY broke their backs making them? Do we hear them bitch and moan about Hitler, etc? (my hubby is a Jew) Nope, we dont. It's time for us to UNITE AS ONE. I do not think that singling out one race, giving one race opportunities to go to college (I know a TON of poor white.asian, indian, american indian, etc etc that could use that too!), giving one race the EXCUSE to blame things on others for being whatever nationality they are, is a good way at making sure we NEVER kill racism.I am over this shit. WE ALL CAME FROM ONE BLACK WOMAN FROM AFRICA, THAT is our EVE! It has been proven by science, and I stand by it. If any other race had a chanel [sic] dedicated to just them, we would think it was racist. If any other race demanded a month be set aside for ONLY them, they would be considered racist. I am NOT living by this double standard any longer.Think I am racist? I am not. I know what racism is. I dated a guy named "Justin" in Junior high. Nothing serious, but I really liked him. He was the blackest of black. ...BEAUTIFUL skin, kinda like Alex Wek's. He was handsome, and athletic, etc. I was called a [N Word] lover. But you know what? I was called that by a whole 2 people out of a school with HUNDREDS of students. THAT is why I am NOT buying this racist shit anymore. Let us teach or children that there is NO DIFFERENCE! We are all human. I hope one day aliens land and try to kill us. Maybe THEN we would finally realize that WE are ONE.So, I will no
longer tune into BET. This is going to suck, but I do NOT like the idea of
having a chanel for only 1 race. In the year 2007 in a country that is supposed
to be the most advanced and equal. This is unexceptable! [sic] I will also no
longer acknowledge Black History Month. Instead, I will see it the way that
Morgan Freeman does (I have the quote at the bottom of my last blog on
Obama/jesseJackson, and OJ). AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH! I will read/watch/and learn about ALL the people who made a difference in this country. I am asking you ALL to join me. Black, White, Indian, Asian, Russian, Australian, etc etc.....lets be AMERICANS together! What happened to the African American community was AMERICAN HISTORY, not BLACK HISTORY. If you want to celebrate in a way that excludes others and singles one race out, count me the FUCK out! I am soooo proud to be an American. I am SO proud that I have friends of every race, and none of us see each other as anything but what we are..people. Lets change Black History Month to 2 months of AMERICAN HISTORY. We will still learn about all the black leaders and people who made a difference....just not with the racist name of "Black History Month". It has to start somewhere. I am going to do my part in making sure we are all treated EQUAL in a country that CLAIMS we are. NO MORE SPECIAL TREATMENT FOR ANYONE WITH ANYTHING! It will never happen. At least, that is what many of you will say...FINE! My number one priority here is being able to die and know that I stood up for what I believed in, and that I did not add to the SEPERATION OF AMERICANS!! I love my country, I love the people in it. I love our history, good and bad. We should LEARN from it,not dwell in it and not move forward. That's why I am done with this shit. You are all my brothers and sisters.....even if I think you suck ; ) As Bono said, "One life, with each
now, have fun burning me at the stake ; )
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS?

I want to shout out the Gin Mill bar at 442 Amsterdam Ave between 81st & 82nd St's. They have good wings and a helluva happy hour. 11-8 half price 7 days a week. While I’m giving out love, let me also big up to all the teachers, who have introduced me to the Mill and how to get super drunk on a Wednesday night. Now who says teachers don’t do shit? To all my party goers this weekend, if you come upon a teacher during one of your adventures buy them a nice stiff drink. Remember they can handle their liqs and any person who can hold down a class of 30 off-the-chain badasses on a daily basis, needs a little appreciation. So show some love and Don’t Bullshit yourself…
