15 September 2009

Five Things (Three of which involve race, one about insanity and the other: Shakira)

1. I totally told the Bride a couple weeks back that white folk of all shades would be in a tizzy when Patrick Swayze died. They are, and for good reason. Righteous dude.

2. I totally told the Conservatives on Twitter last night that, "Hey 9/12ers, wanna know why I call Tom Brady 'White Jesus'? Because real Jesus was black. How ya like him now?" After which, Brady turned water (a double-digit deficit) into wine (a Pats -- and Hickey fantasy team -- victory).

3. I'm not sure what was more compelling: Hearing a black guy walking on my block talking about how the neighborhood's racist because few send their children to the public school down the end of the block yesterday, or reading about how white folks is so paranoid that few let their kids even walk to school these days. (Mehopes it's not a fear of encountering black folk.)

4. And I quote Levi Johnston, "There wasn’t much parenting in that house. Sarah doesn’t cook, Todd doesn’t cook—the kids would do it all themselves: cook, clean, do the laundry, and get ready for school." Yikes!

5. You're welcome.
