A Mostly Center-Right Place For Those With Irritable Obama Syndrome and Diversity Fatigue

Sunday Soliloquy: The Liberal Spook That Sat By The Door June 6, 2010

There are moments in my life when I wonder if  will I ever sufficiently recover from being a former liberal.

Is it possible that I could have a sort of jackass Democratic version of Stockholm Syndrome?

Like an old childhood friend that I have outgrown, there liberalism is at times, calling me when I do not want to be bothered.   The summer guest that just pops in your life with a duffel bag full of old memories and outdated viewpoints.   He comes in uninvited,  puts his feet up on your coffee table – right on top of the new Laura Bush book your were reading.  The leftie poltergeist takes control of the remote and turns the channel away from Fox News.

“Got any arugula? ”  he asks. “Better be organic.”

You see my  former liberal mindset captor never really goes away- not completely.

There is a scene in the first Twilight movie, where the main human girl–Bella is playing baseball with her new vampire pals.  Everything is proceeding idyllically.  You got your thunderstorm, your Matrix like double plays.  But wait!!!! You didn’t think that life would be that easy did you?   The mood swings, another group of vampires interrupt the game.  Human gir Bellal must pretend to be a vampire but the intruder blood suckers sense that something is amiss. They can smell it all over her.  SHE IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

Uh-oh.  Was I too naive to hope that liberalism would go away quietly into the night.   Abusive boyfriends never give up.  They become stalkers and you have to get a restraining order.  You can’t get within 200 feet of  Lilith Fair.   It knows your habits forwards and backwards.  The liberal junkie itch plagues you at the most inopportune moments like when you are at a Memorial Day service in let’s say Kansas…

Me at Memorial Day Ceremony last Monday, May 31st, 2010

You are driving away from a great ultra patriotic day when you look up and see a pro-life billboard with an unsettling picture of an aborted fetus in a garbage can.  Conservative friend mentions that they helped pay for the ad.   You smile at them.  Hey free speech for all…right?   Besides there is nothing wrong with both groups getting their point of view across.  Then conservative friend says:

“Women just like killing babies and until we stop them America will never be right with God.”

Until the above statement was uttered, you feel a sense of belonging with the conservative.  Just  moments after, the invisible left-wing reservists appear and take over your personality and mouth.

“Women should have a choice, ” says Afrocity multiple liberal personality #12.   “Abortion is a very private and personal matter. Republicans want limited government concerning taxation, business ….So why would you want the government interfering with the decisions we make about our bodies? “

The conservative did not agree with me but nonetheless, the conversation did not end in a salad bar brawl like it would have had I disagreed with an Obamabot.  No one left with alfalfa sprouts in their comb over or dreadlocks.

Is there ever a total cure ?  Or is liberalism like herpes?  One day your life is left wing wart-less then the next thing you know just when you want to get down and busy for an evening of scintillating discourse  with your conservative companion…BAM!!!  You have a sudden liberal herpes flare up.

The liberal imaginary stalker –texting me while I am having a meal with my new conservative friends.  Like the previous situation I mentioned.  One the exact same day, conservative buddies and I were discussing Obama’s abysmal foreign policy record.  Everything was fine- not a cloud in the political chit chat sky. No text messages from my estranged left wing friend- the ghost of Afrocity’s past.

However when the tide of  verbal mutterings turned to the situation in Arizona and need for diversity in our country,  an uncomfortable moment of the familiar liberal whiner enters the room.

Not again!!!  There is the liberal friend sitting silently by watching me.  The friend nudges me, kicks me underneath the table.  I wince at the prospect of sounding like a wishy-washy RINO- a  John McCain in brown skin clothing.

“Did she just say that gays should not be married?”  asks my imaginary estranged friend.

I kicked the pest back in the shin.  Go away! Shoo donkey fly.  We should secure our borders. If you are not a bleeping U.S. citizen or here legally, you should be deported.   The fact is, I was having a wonderful day.  Surely the most patriotic in my life.  I loved honoring the soldiers who served my country.  I loved embracing American values.  Somehow I never quite got that pill in my liberal diet.  Anytime I sounded “pro-American” around Democrats, I got shitty looks and criticism.  Now I can wear flag pins and support drilling in the U.S. without incurring a bloody nose.

Me having a post Memorial Day lunch at the Veterens Club.

Go away jackass.  I am in a good relationship now with people who respect my views and don’t reek of patchouli.

You are not here. You are in Dubrovnik- the tomb of the unknown liberal.

“Afrocity, may I ask you an honest question without your being offended?”

My conservative friend was addressing me and only me.  Gee I wonder what they are worried about offending me for.  I am a conservative too, right?

” Why do blacks want to be called African American and not just American like the rest of us?”

The room became silent as every conservative and my liberal imaginary stalker awaited my answer.

And the rest, I will leave for another post.

What will Afrocity do?  Is this the end of her as a conservative?  Or will she rise to the occasion and beat down the left wing “Hulk” menace that lies within?   Is there a cure to save her just in time???  TO BE CONTINUED.

Where the White Things Are May 4, 2010

From opposite sides of a Chicago bus route, one can see two very different Americas.  One side of the route ends in the north side “Gold Coast” Neighborhood. Home to the city’s elite, the Latin School, the Chicago History Museum.  The other ends on the west side.

As I sat watching the #72 North Avenue bus parked outside the window yesterday, I was overcome by memories of my mother- again.

It was the bus route that brought me from the ghetto to the peaceful lakeside where I could forget I was a black girl who lived in a neighborhood where children did not know their fathers.  I would watch white moms and dads pushing children in strollers, buying cotton candy and wonder what life was like for them when they left the park.  At the end of the day, mother and I would ride the #72 back home alone. Just a single mother and her child.  I would sit in the front seat next to the driver.  “Someday I will live and work here”, I told mother. “…where the white things are.”

“What are white things?” she asked.

“White people with white jobs and money. Nice apartments, museums. I want a white life.”

This momentary glimpse into the past took my mind off the speaker in the seminar I was attending.  I did not hear him. I only saw the fountain and the #72 bus  sitting at North Ave. and Clark, waiting to take mother and I back home.   My lip curled when I knew I was back in the present. She was now dead and I was sitting here in this room.  The white life.  The job, the apartment, the friends and I had somehow left her behind to take the #72 bus home.  This time without her daughter.  My brown limbs could not move to join her. Here, the bus –an innocent bus waiting in the layover circle became a distinct vehicle for my guilt and shame at never confronting my mother about doing something about her life during her final years.  I let her stay on the bus while I got off.

Jacob Lawrence The Seamstress, 1946

Although I intervened on several occasions, I was rebuffed and told “You do not understand what it is like to be really black now that you are educated,”  she told me one day in the year 2005.  “Like that stupid Condeleeza Rice and Colin Powell,when blacks get up- they get uppity…They don’t want to wash clothes by hand anymore or drive buses. Then they join the Republican Party and think they are white people. they black fades from their skin more and more each day…Colin Powell don’t look black anymore than Strom Thurmond.”

To appease her I smiled a bit.

“He don’t!” she continued throwing her hand. “Neither does his wife. People forget who they are and where they’ve been.  You get a nice car and don’t realize you are black until someone puts sugar in the engine and you can’t drive anywhere because your engine is all messed up.”

According to ghetto urban legend, sugar in the gas tank was a trick often played in inner city neighborhoods during the 1970′s. A person, usually a Black or Latino man would buy a nice car, say a shiny long Cadillac with white leather interior.  Like many people who are proud of new material possessions, the owner of the  car would drive around and around the same block over and over again so his neighbors could see his new found piece of colored American pie.  A car is not the whole pie mind you; just a tiny sliver. But when the highlight of your life hinges on winning the lottery or surviving an accident at the drill bit plant during third shift, you will settle for the sliver.

The sistas would hang around the car as the doting owner massages it with car wax.  By the end of the calendar year, the car was responsible for at least three separate pregnancies. Unfortunately, then as nowadays when you have a new iPad, people get jealous.  Things that you are enamored with should stay in your pockets and inside the garage.   Bruised manhood is the only remedy for a braggart Cadillac owner who gets too much attention from the ladies.  His reward.  Homespun 100% green with envy Dominic sugar poured in the gas tank.   The ghetto moral: Forget who you are and we will mess up yo’ car.

The modern day equivalent of my mother’s sentiment about uppity and forgetful Black people was expressed by Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) when she made a derogatory reference to Supreme Court Justice,  Clarence Thomas during a recent public appearance.

All of these stubborn, rigid ideas on blackness have in a sense collectively poured sugar in African American identity of Clarence Thomas and other prominent conservatives of color.  Amongst liberals, Clarence will never be allowed to ride the bus back home. He lives where the white things are. Banished in Black history to the prison of collective amnesia and ridicule.

The same fate obviously will apply to Republican National Committee Chairman, Michael Steele.

From this article in the Wall Street Journal

Steele Says He Finally Met Obama

May 1, 2010

By John D. McKinnon and Susan Davis

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said he finally got to meet President Barack Obama on Saturday, at a VIP reception at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. He got his picture taken with Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, as celebrities such as Alec Baldwin milled around.

At last year’s dinner, Obama poked fun at the slightly nerdy Steele and his sometimes awkward attempts to seem cool.

“Michael Steele is in the house tonight. Or as he would say, in the `heezy,’” Obama said last year. “Wassup,” he added, making a hip-hop-style hand gesture. “Michael, for the last time, the Republican Party does not qualify for a bailout. Rush Limbaugh does not count as a troubled asset, I’m sorry.” Steele just stood in the audience, laughing, and clapped his hands.

A few days later on NBC’s Meet the Press, Steele insisted there were no hard feelings.
“That was just good love between two brothers,” he said.

UPDATE: In his remarks to the crowd, Obama gave a shoutout to Steele, calling him “Notorious G.O.P.”

Romare Bearden, 110St. Harlem Blues

Engaging with the facts surrounding the history Democratic Party have never been easy for my fellow African Americans.  Did my mother ever know that the Republican party was the true anti-slavery party? I doubt it.  I never knew until I reached college.  Perhaps I needed the comedic honesty of African American conservatives such as AlfonZo Rachel aka ZoNation to show me the truth as he does in his latest piece on the history of Blacks and the Democrats.


In 1992, there was no ZoNation or Afrocity.  The Democrats were eternal champions of brown skin and equality.  There was no other side to the historical coin. Until I met a conservative of color, some old Republican woman– an outspoken member of a Houston based Republican women’s group. She found me in the crowd one day as I proudly campaigned for Bill Clinton. I would later meet that same woman in 1995 at an event honoring Laura Bush. The old woman offered the truth but I never explored the truth any further. The old woman had to be delusional. Everything she said went against everything my mother told me.  I did not want to know the truth about the Democratic Party nor did I want to understand why Ms. Condi Rice or Mr. Thomas would be proud Republicans. Dining and voting for the enemy.  How could such an animal even exist?

Jacob Lawrence, "Tombstones"

But today, I am the animal my mother and Eleanor Holmes Norton spoke of.  Through my conservative beliefs, I am no longer on the #72 riding home with mother to eat a dinner of breaded sandwich steak, canned peas  and instant potatoes purchased with colored money.  The tumbler of Kool Aid still sits at the table waiting for my former liberal self to return home.  But I can’t because as far as they are concerned I am lost as a Black woman.

I am where the white things are.

Moonbat Mailbag: Afrocity Incites Hate Among the Apolitical February 4, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — afrocity @ 3:35 PM
Tags: ,

This is really good. I love the mail I get from people who claim not to be involved with politics. They are neither Democrat or Republican yet as the conversation goes on splashes of pro-Obama/anti-conservative sentiment become obviously ever so apparent.   Since the Scott Brown (R-MA) win in Massachusetts, even the apolitical  moonbats have been a tad bit ape shit.

Let me set the mood here.

Afrocity places her iPhone 3gs  on ” Freebird”   by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Name withheld:

Dear Afrocity,

I first want to say I love how you have strong views and convictions. I honestly believe “if you don’t stand for something you fall for anything”. Im not attacking your views because Im sure you have heard it all ” Obama leadership is good for all african americans kids growing up to see” along with many other famous quotes from other convincing democrats. I totally understand if you don’t like Obama’s policies and the moves he is making, Im not a democrat nor am I a republican.


But what I ask myself is why let conservatives say lies about the president on your page? Why have friends on your facebook that belong to obvious white supremest groups which I don’t feel the need to be detailed because I’m sure you are aware. Why support a man such as Rush limbaugh when he says things like we need separated buses for black and white students? I try to answer these questions in my head…… Is it because of self hate? no, You are very confident of who you are.

From my point of view…Its not self hate. Maybe your one of those people that like to get hated on and be against whats popular? hmmm, that could be it. But I do know that if history was to start over again and, they wouldn’t look at you any different for being on there side. They would judge you for your skin and not because of your intellect just like MANYY not all judge Obama. You dont have to agree with me, you don’t have to respond, I just wanted you to know that your own people love you regardless. Your a beautiful black women but I want you to be careful because your words inspire people to do hateful things. Hateful ways usually turn into hateful actions. You believe what you believe and that is fine but for someone that is not a republican or democrat I’m just asking you to be careful about what thoughts,ideas, you put in there heads because they can get carried away. There is a reason behind everything by the way….

Okay, so I hang with White Supremacists and I monger hate against…Barack Obama. Which the author of the letter is totally not for Obama’s policies yet he cares to get me to see Obama’s point because….the logic is just so clear.


There are those who are Kool Aid drinkers for Obama but for some reason they are in denial. So they see a person like me and I bother them because here is Afrocity drinking moonshine and listening to Bill O’Reilly, having Tupperware parties with her friends in white hoods.

I am totally oblivious that my conservative friends are all racists. I did not know that Palin PAC or Smartgirl Politics was akin to the KKK. Guess I missed my friends with the burning cross avatar, and screen names like “Nigger Killer”.  That went over my head.  My Aunt Jemima do rag must be too tight- cutting off the brain circulation.


Now that it is has been established that I am really the most awful misguided black person in all of North America, I am glad to know that “my people” still love me. (Sniff) That is special because I doubted it there for a second while I was spreading hatred and being judged by my skin color by my own people.

Oh, well what can a medium skinned non negro speaking dialect black conservative do?

Thank Rush Limbaugh that I have readers sending me emails like that, keeping me honest.

This Thursday’s bitch is a “vlog” post from my good ol’ kitchen. It is my response to the charge that I am  possessed of mammy mentality because I am a black conservative.  You will recall that in Tuesdays Autographed Letter Signed post I posted the entire quote which accused me of such behavior. I received a tremendous amount of support from my readers. For that I thank you all for taking the time from your neo-con activities at the country club to post at ALS.  On a serious note, I want you all to know that it is you that keeps me going during a time when it seems almost impossible to speak with anyone about politics without being chastised as an”Obama hater”, mammy, Auntie Tom, self-loathing of my skin color.

Thank you for accepting me as I am and not trying to change me. The one thing I have learned since becoming a conservative is that my GOP buddies are more tolerant of my dissenting views on the pro-life movement and support of gay marriage than my liberal friends are of my stance against Obamacare. I also want to give a special thank you to those of you who are PUMA’s. We began as Hillary supporters. We have since gone in separate directions. I went right but I love you all who have never left ;-).

Liberal Hypocrisy Files: The Mammy Diaries October 6, 2009

mammyAh, another beautiful day in post-racial America…Where those who agree with the liberal agenda  are shining happy sheeple holding hands…but if you are not watch out. The racism boogie man will get you.

However there are racist lined clouds in the sky.

You were warned that no one is safe. Not even Afrocity.

During a recent Face Book exchange with two African American Obama supporters and a British liberal, I was called something rather disturbing.

The insult was one that will be familiar to many black Republicans. I was called a mammy.

To be fair I will give the proper context before I post her exact quote. The exchange was about the Chicago’s now failed  2016 Olympic bid and Obama’s trip to Copenhagen.

I jumped in and commented that Obama should have stayed in the U.S. .

I was then given a response that basically said how it is about time that an African American was representing (blacks) and the commenter said they feel “free”.

In turn, I responded that it was sad that she needed Obama’s election win to feel free and proud as an African American.

Her following response was this:

…there are African Americans with the “mamie” complex and “yes sir” complex-they will argue and die for their master…and yes, it was a low … Read Moreblow!! The lack of black consciousness in this country is not as common as you think (thank God) especially in the east coast..@ Afrocity-you’re a really smart woman no … Read Moredoubt…probably smarter than all of us combined (you are special…maybe you grew up with some money I presume?)…but you’re not a progressive thinker…you’re a limited thinker with a one sided message—a sound bite– you only speak from the mind not the heart! Clearly, there are whites who hate you because of your skin color…NEO CONS don’t roll with blacks. NEO CONS golf at country clubs while making business deals… and you will always be seen the as help…helping a cause that benefits the wealthy with health care and corporate jets!! good for you!! I’m not one to kiss ass… There is some deep seated issues which goes beyond the scope of politics with you…and you are projecting all the negativity from the black experience and unaware of an audience that view you in a different light than you see yourself…..

auntjemima_1The formative powers of post-racial America’s race card are also turning black republicans and conservatives into mammy dolls and Uncle Tom’s.

According to the commenter, I am

1. ignorant of the fact that white people hate me.

2. I never speak sincerely from my own heart.

3. …”roll” with NEO-CONS who don’t roll with me (?)

4. I am viewed by my fellow conservatives as “help”. In other words my Caucasian conservative friends/readers see me as their …maid…mammy, pickin’ cotton.

Like Condi Rice, Afrocity needs to go back to the Inner-City Racial Re-Education Camp

Like Condi Rice, Afrocity needs to go back to the Inner-City Racial Re-Education Camp

5. Also my readers view me in “different light” than I view myself.

negro-mammySo tell me white racist conservative readers.

How do you view Afrocity?

And please do not hold anything back.

1902 "topsy turvey doll" for self-loathing black conservatives like myself. Sometimes I like to pretend I am white you know.

1902 "topsy turvey doll" for self-loathing black conservatives like myself. Sometimes I like to pretend I am white you know. So I just lift up my skirt and presto change o' cotton balls...I am white just like that.

If you see me shining your Doc Martin combat boots, be honest and say so.

Envision me in your kitchen making chitterlin’ pineapple casserole? Speak up about it. Remove your white hoods so I can see your faces.

By all means confess your antebellum thoughts and desires. I can take it like a good slave.

Obviously I was a fool to actually believe that my conservative friends saw me as being an equal. I should have known when you failed to hand me a welfare application that you guys were all racist in your views.

How dare you praise me for uplifting myself from a childhood of reliance on government funding and homelessness!!! Why didn’t you send me an invitation to become Face Book friends with the food stamp fan club???

African Americans Send Open Letter to Obama on Gay Marriage July 13, 2009

Famous Gay African Americans

Famous Gay African Americans

As African Americans search for a new “post-racial” identity, exploring views on the subject of same sex marriage have come to the forefront of an inter-community debate.

A challenge facing black Democrats is that while they are fiscally liberal, their social values can be interpreted as conservative. President Obama’s position on same sex marriage as been rather vague and passive in nature.  Now several leaders in the African American community are sending the first black president an open letter regarding his position on marriage.

I am posting the text of the letter for informational purposes only. While I am a black Republican, I am actually in favor of same sex unions. My opinions do not necessarily reflect  or endorse those stated in the following letter:

Townhall.com

July 13, 2009

An Open Letter to President Obama
by Harry R. Jackson, Jr.

The following is an excerpt from a letter that will be sent this week to President Obama from leaders in the African-American community. Two events have precipitated the writing of this letter.

1. The President hosted a Stonewall Riot 40th anniversary celebration at the White House, when no such meeting has been afforded to African-American clergy to date.

2. The legal attempt to overthrow the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that has come out of Massachusetts last week.

All too often, both the press and politicians view the African-American community as a monolithic group that will go wherever the cultural winds blow them. This is not true. We want to express our concerns and be heard. The following letter is an attempt to encourage the president to consider our viewpoint on the redefinition of marriage.

Dear President Obama,

“…Although you have voiced support for marriage as defined as a union between one man and one woman, we are concerned that that your campaign promise to changing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) will work at cross purposes with your pro-marriage stance.

“We believe that the central domestic problem we face is the disintegration of marriage. One of the organizations we support called Marriage Savers points out that the marriage crisis is comprised of four elements:

1. A lowering of the marriage rate

• The marriage rate has plunged 50% since 1970

2. An increase in divorce

• Half of all new marriages end in divorce

3. A rise in heterosexual cohabitation

• The number of unmarried couples living together has soared 12-fold since 1960

4. A multiplication of unwed births

• Out-of wedlock births jumped from 5.3% to 39.6% from 1960-2007

“These statistics show the fragile nature of the institution of marriage today. Changing the definition of marriage will have many unintended consequences, which will hurt generations to come. If one redefines marriage, then the family is redefined. If the family is redefined then the nature of parenting must also be redefined.

“We are concerned that an attempt to recognize and adjust to one group’s sense of alienation may actually confuse future generations of children about their sexuality and blur lines of responsibility in our families. The very definitions of motherhood and fatherhood may be unnecessarily challenged in years to come.

Same-sex marriage is not a civil right. The laws enacted by Congress during a century of struggle for equal rights for African Americans were intended to eliminate discrimination on the basis of race, not on the basis of an individual’s sexual preferences or personal behavior.

Advocates of same-sex marriage want people to think that it can peacefully coexist alongside traditional marriage. But it will create a conflict between people of faith who fervently believe in traditional marriage and the law, which says marriage includes those of the same-sex variety. Those conflicts will always be resolved in favor of same-sex marriage because there can be no ‘conscientious objectors’ to the law.

Mr. President, you say you desire to unify the nation and to change the politics-as-usual status of Washington. We want to believe this statement. As we have looked at both your policies and recent public affirmations, each of us has asked ourselves one question, ‘Is there room enough for people like us in President Obama’s America?’

Many of the people we speak for felt that your disparaging statements during the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall Riot were directed at them. Some of the people with ‘worn out arguments and old attitudes’ are not bigots or homophobes; they are our cultural elders, who are rightfully saying, ‘Don’t tear down a fence until you understand why it’s there.’ Recent studies show that there is a resurgence of hope about marriage among the young people of this generation. Mr. President, let’s keep hope alive…”

We also stated that the California Proposition 8 votes amending the state’s constitution to protect marriage marked the beginning of a new era in American politics. For the first time in recent history, black and Hispanic voters (predominately Christians) voted for President Obama and simultaneously voted against the Democratic power structure on this social issue. In light of this phenomenon occurring simultaneously within the black and Hispanic communities, we respectfully warned the president that hooking his political wagon too closely to the gay marriage bandwagon could precipitously erode public confidence in his administration.

If you agree with our concern about marriage, it’s time for you to start contacting both Republican and Democratic congressmen. Congress is where the battle concerning the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) will likely be fought. Importantly, many Republicans are shying away from this important social issue. Conversely, the Democratic Party (generally speaking) seems to be beholding to the gay marriage movement for its financial support in the last election.

Therefore, we must let each congressman know that he can be voted out of office if he moves the wrong way on this issue. Set aside Mondays to email, write or call saying, “We want you to support marriage and to protect DOMA.” Let’s make “Marriage Monday” a national movement.

According to the article, the letter was signed by Niger Innis of the Congress on Racial Equality, Dr. William Owens, Sr. of Concerned African-American Pastors, Bishop Dale Bronner of Word of Faith Family Worship Center in Atlanta, Georgia, Pastor Terry Millender of Victorious Life Church in Alexandria, Virginia, and of course Harry R. Jackson Jr.

Harry Jackson Jr., politically is what I would call an African American  independent. His leanings are conservative on moral issues but he is an advocate for national health care and liberal fiscal policies.  Here is a video clip of Jackson Jr. on The O’Reilly Factor discussing blacks and gay marriage.

Diversity Fatigue Friday: The Silent Minority May 15, 2009

uncle-toms-cabain-robert-johnson

Liberals say if you are black and a Republican you MUST live at the cabin.

You had better tell Uncle Tom to save a place at the table for Afrocity. According to the liberals, I am coming home.

Definitions of Uncle Tom at Urban Dictionary

1.     Uncle Tom

Uncle Tom is a term used by black people to try to convince other black people that working, education, living well, and setting a good example for their children is selling out.
“De Shawn got a job? At Ameritech? He’s a Tom”

2. Uncle Tom:

A black man who will do anything to stay in good standing with “the white man” including betray his own people
Leroy is such an Uncle Tom; he told the boss I took a 2 hour lunch; I had to go see my baby momma

3.Uncle Tom :

Theatrical productions of Uncle Tom’s Cabin played throughout the nadir (post Civil War and Reconstruction); but since the novel’s indictment of slavery was no longer congenial to an increasingly white society, rewrites changed Uncle Tom from a martyr who gave his life to protect the people into a sentimental dope who was loyal to kindly masters. In the black community, Uncle Tom eventually came to mean an African American who sells out his people’s interests and still does today. In my opinion the phrase “uncle tom” should not be used today by black people because it degrades the status of a man who wasn’t in fact a sell out but a hero who’s name should be used with reverence not disgrace.
Uncle tom, a martyr who should be admired til the end of time.

4.Uncle Tom:

The real uncle tom was a black man born into slavery who gave his life to protect other slaves. when his story was turned into a movie, the writers re-worked the script making uncle tom’s character the opposite; a slave who was loyal to his master. unfortunately, this has become the most commonly known image of uncle tom. because of the film, the term “uncle tom” has become synonomous with “sellout”, degrading the real uncle tom. so once again, the white man has successfully managed to teach blacks an incorrect, caucasion-favoring version of history.
person 1: Chris told the boss about you stealing office supplies.
person 2: What! I knew that ass-kissin uncle tom would say something.
person 1: He’s not an uncle tom.
person 2: Yeah, whatever.

5. Uncle Tom:

This is a black person, who acts like an adult and has over a fifth grade education. Usually they end up getting shot by a member of their own race for speaking proper English and having a job that pays well that does not involve illegal drugs.
Dam, nigga. Dat Martin Luther King be an Uncle Tom. Fuck dat nigga and dat nigga Malcolm X. I be bustin a cap in any niggaz that be tryin to improves the lifes of de black peeple.

Yesterday at Autographed Letter Signed we read about Mel Maguire a gay conservative and blogger at gayconservtive.org. Mel explained that she has faced more persecution from liberal gays than she ever has from straight conservatives. I posted Mel’s story because not only is she brilliant and gifted, but she is also just another example of a Democrat’s worst nightmare- a member of group designated by liberals as so called helpless victims that is not a liberal. You know African Americans and other ethnic groups, gays and lesbians, Hispanics, disabled persons, women. If you fall into any of these groups you are a victim and there is no place for conservatism or the Republican Party in your life.

Like gays, recognizing that you are beholden to the Democratic party is an integral part of black life. I battled my mother on many issues including her dependence on welfare and belief that the government owes us something.  What was wrong with me? When Afrocity was baking someone must have switched a few ingredients:

Recipe for Liberal Afrocity

10 cups of melanin

2 pounds of courage

3 tsps of soul

5 tbsp of faith

1 cup of compassion

3 drops of snark

1 heart of gold

1 pinch of creativity

2 arms filled with love

4 teeny pinches of self-reliance (use sparingly)

8 drops of liberalism as usual mom did not check to see what she needed to bake the cake.

Negative portrayal of Ron Christie, an African American conservative. Notice the mocking of Ron's crossed eyes

Mom shrugs shoulders and adds extra self-reliance to make up for it. Oh hell, she only has a half cup of compassion. Maybe this pragmatism stuff will do just as well.

Throw her in the oven, bake for 2 hours until golden brown.  Let cool. Hmmm this Afrocity is alright but why does she keep telling me to find a job and missing the deadlines for minority scholarships.

Sorry mom, you’ve been PUNKED. Some serious errors have crept into the test kitchen. She should have known better yet she still deliberately pushed me to be a Democrat. Any black who is not a Democrat is an UNCLE TOM.

Condi Rice- Uncle Tom or Auntie Thomasina

Colin Powell -Uncle Tom

Clarence Thomas- Uncle Tom

They don’t call them the three C’s for nothing

RNC Chairman Michael Steele- Uncle Tom

Alan Keyes- Uncle Tom

Larry Elder-Uncle Tom

You ever notice how the presence of African Americans in the Republican party somehow brings out the racists on the left.  Don’t believe me? Take a look at this

Where is the NAACP? Curiously if you are black and a Republican no one gives a damn about you if you are discriminated against. You lost that right when you became GOP. It is also assumed by liberals that you do nothing to help other minorities. As a black Republican, of course I am self-loathing and hate other blacks. I soak in Clorox every day you know.  I often get “I didn’t know that you are a conservative Afrocity.”  I think to myself did you ever ask me?

When I was a Democrat, I never had anyone say “Oh, I didn’t know that you are  liberal Afrocity.  What’s up with that?

The Democrats have become adept at fooling minorities into believing that they are the party of the people. Equality for all.  Blacks agree, but their assessment is based largely on the fact that liberals delve out more government aid which in my opinion is a deterrent to self-reliance. Those same Democrats also tax the shit out of those of us that work for a living. Sometimes we are even called “uppity”  and unappreciative especially if we are conservative. We must have all Caucasian friends. As a black Republican I am transgressing my predetermined racial norms, thereby surrendering my blackness. Black Republicans are verbally attacked and marginalized in the media as sell outs.

But isn’t that racist? Isn’t it racist that a party would believe that I am helpless? That I need government imposed quotas to get a job? That my skin color makes me a Democrat by default?

Isn't Barack Obama the man that actually bowed to someone that was not African American?

Condi Rice according to Wiki:Rice was the first black woman, second African American (after her predecessor Colin Powell, who served from 2001 to 2005), and the second woman (after Madeleine Albright, who served from 1997 to 2001 in the Clinton Administration) to serve as Secretary of State.

Gee, who would have thought that the Republicans were responsible for the first male and female African American Secretary of State. The first African American congressmen in both the reconstruction and post reconstruction were Republicans.

Wiki:In 1928, Oscar De Priest won the 1st Congressional District of Illinois (the South Side of Chicago) as a Republican, becoming the first black Congressman of the modern era. DePriest was also the last black Republican in the House for 56 years.Edward William Brooke, III (born October 26, 1919), is an American politician and was the first African American to be elected by popular vote to the United States Senate when he was elected as a Republican from Massachusetts in 1966.

By now we have all seen the Wanda Sykes footage from last week’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. How many times did she say Obama was the first black president? Then Obama gets up and takes shots at Michael Steele:

Later Michael Steele responds and proves that he has more class and is a good sport on top of it all.

I wonder if Michael Steele puts Grey Poupon on his hamburger.

Oh well off to Uncle Tom I go. I will leave you with another great video from Alfonzo Rachel aka Zonation.

Black Republicans say YES WE CAN and have fun at it too!!!!! April 13, 2009

I hear that 98% of African Americans voted for Barack Obama this past election. I guess that makes me a part of the 2% that did not. Gee, talk about being in the minority.

The motives and attitudes of Black Republicans have been virtually unexplored in a manner that gives us character and dimension. Allow me to shed some light on the subject in true Afrocity humorous fashion.

Presently the Democrats (who really should be called Obamacrats) have attempted to marginalize Black Republicans in several ways: by dismissing us as sellouts, turncoats and Uncle and Auntie Toms, by saying we do not realize that we are Black and want to be white (this is where the “self-loathing” comes into effect), and finally by attacking any prominent Black Republican via the mainstream media.

The last point refers to figures such as Condoleezza Rice and most recently the 63rd Republican National Committee Chairman, Michael Steele. If you recall, the liberal Obamabot Kool Aid crack show Saturday Night Live lampooned Steele, on its Weekend Update segment. Played by SNL’s current token Black dude Kenan Thompson, Steele was portrayed as an RNC electrode controlled lap dog that Rush Limbaugh and the GOP could shock collar back in line if he strays from conservative talking points with his “hip-hop” agenda. For Kenan Thompson, Michael Steele was probably a godsend because now there is another Black person he can parody. While the content and message of the skit unnerved me, I have to admit that you can’t blame Thompson. A man has gotta work and the brother might actually get more airtime. It must get pretty old playing Al Sharpton or Oprah Winfrey all of the time. Thompson has to answer to the SNL producers after all, and they must think that he is far too rotund and heavy in melanin content to portray Barack Obama. Save that for the Asian/Hispanic American actor who didn’t star in Fat Albert. Hey,hey, hey.

What you do not see in the mainstream media is the many facets of Black conservatism.

Take one of my favorite conservatives AlfonZo Rachel whose show ZONATION appears on Pajamas TV. AlfonZo is African American and a pop culture conservative who delivers his message with clarity, candor and best of all humor that is provocative.

Take for example this Zonation video entitled Affirmative Action & Socializing the Big Three :

I love AlfonZo and I urge you to watch his show, it is hilarious and best of all CONSERVATIVE.

Autographed Letter Signed,
Afrocity
