Girl, Ebony

"That Girl"

Not Marlo Thomas.
Definitely Not Maxi Priest and Shaggy.
Think Stevie.

I’m sure it goes without saying, but let me state for the record, that if Obama had a grown son musing about punching Mitt Romney not only would we be hearing about what a “thug,” “gangster" and "hoodlum from Chicago" he is, we’d also have to deal with the president and said son doing a scripted mea culpa before the press.

In case you needed another example of white privilege, well, you know. It’s the ability to have your “jests” considered “jests” and not viable, potential assaults. It’s when your implied threats of physical harm don’t warrant apology nor need of quelling fears. It’s not having to soften nor mute your tone for fear of being perceived as aggressive or threatening just by standing up straight. It’s not having to apologize for anger. It’s not having to go to jail for anger. It’s having your words represent you as an individual and not representing an entire race.

It’s talking about wanting to cause bodily harm to the leader of the fuckin free world and not having all of Secret Service come down on your ass like you were Bin Laden’s zombie corpse resurrected in the middle of the Oval Office.

And not for nothing, but I’m sure *I* could take Tagg, so he needs to have that seat next to Eastwood.

    I mean, what, the guy said “jest,” why on Earth would any journalist do anything but just take him at his word, right?...
