A Cup O' Kapeng Barako
C all me a racist, a bigot, crazy, or whatever, but I laughed and laughed with glee and laughed some more ... in agreement.  Yes, in agreement only, Dear Readers.
Because as that lyric in one of the of the recordings that Bob Dylan sang years ago:
And if my thought and dreams could be seen,
They'd probably put my head in a guillotine.
So, I can merely agree.  I don't want my head in a guillotine.  Surely, a lot of people agree with me, too.  But I betcha, many will agree to put my head in a guillotine.
Well, it's the talk of the town.  I wanna have my own say on the matter, too.
And, as my favorite syndicated columnist, Leonard Pitts, Jr., wrote in his latest column: "There are days in the opinion business when one story makes itself inevitable and unavoidable, one story sucks up all the air in the room.  This is one of those times."
Two stories, "actually," Mr. Pitts said.
The first one were the racial comments of Cliven Bundy, and the second were those of Donald Sterling.
Bundy, a Nevada rancher, who has waged a two-decade battle against the federal government over land rights for his cattle to graze on public land, was speaking to his supporters about issues involved in the stand off, took an unexpected turn when he began talking about "Negroes" and public welfare.
He said, "I want to tell you one more thing about the Negro." 
He recalled seeing while driving past a public housing project outside of Las Vegas, "and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids -- and there's always a half dozen people sitting on the porch -- they didn't have nothing to do.
"They didn't have nothing for their kids to do.  They didn't have nothing for young girls to do.
"And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?
"They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton.  And I've often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or they better off under government subsidy?  They didn't get no more freedom.  They get less freedom...."
Va Va Voom!  Great balls of fire!  Bwahahahaha!
Of course, politicians led by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid denounced Bundy and his supporters as "domestic terrorists."
But Bundy's supporters remained undeterred and said: "His statements were NOT critical of blacks.  They criticized the federal government."
To them, Bundy's case is a "symbol of everything wrong in America." 
They believed that other ranchers pay the fees Bundy says he doesn't have to, because "his ancestors settled in the area before the feds stepped in and took over the land."  Just like what happened to the land that used to belong to the Native Americans that the feds grabbed away from them.  So there.
May I also have that "freedom" then to agree and laugh in glee at what Cliven Bundy, the rancher from Nevada, had said?  Bwahahahaha!  Or do I deserve the guillotine on my head?  Bwahahahahaha!
DONALD STERLING RACIAL COMMENTS: A week after Bundy made those Va Va VOOM comments, Donald Sterling, the 80-year-old owner of the Los Angeles Clippers made his own comments, too, about "Negroes." 
I mean, "Blacks."  I mean, "African-Americans." 
BTW, forgive my bigoted ignorance, but how do we call these people?  Is the word, "Negro," a racial slur?  Why is it then that the word "Negro" are still used as words on Negro foundations and organizations such as the "United Negro College Fund" and the "Negro Spiritual Scholarly Foundation"?    Or, for that matter, the "National Association for Colored People" (NAACP)?
My "cousins" in skin color, the Black Americans, are not really from Africa.  They were born and raised here in America, so they are, Americans.  Well, They are blacks.  So, I supposed that's the reason why White Americans call them Black Americans. 
I am brown.  Y'all can call me Brown American.  I wouldn't mind at all.  Because I am.  But please don't call me "A Little Brown American."  Because I am not "little."  I am six-foot tall.  And, barakong-barako, in looks.  Brown and tan and tall, and proud of it.  And these genes have been passed on to my two sons, Jon and Chris.  So there.
SO, WHAT DID DONALD STERLING SAY?:  That all "Negroes, I mean, "Black Americans, I mean, "African-Americans" NBA basketball players, print and broadcast journalists, even BHO, were all up in arms, raising hell, demanding that Sterling be hog-tied to a stake, set on fire and burn:
Burn, Donald, burn!  Burn, you bigoted Jew, burn!  Ha!
BUT, as my other favorite syndicated columnist, Kathleen Parker, wrote in her latest column about this matter:
"We should all be nervous about the instantaneous formation of social media MOBS that attack a single individual whose comments, while contemptible, result in a virtual EXECUTION.  Once the mob descends, no punishment short of absolute destruction seems sufficient.
"People may want justice, but the mob wants blood...."
Amen to that.
Well, the NEGRO MOBS didn't burn him exactly.  But he was hog-tied when the NBA henchman, Adam Silver, a white dude, gave the verdict that Sterling be banned from all NBA games for life and the ownership of the LA Clippers be taken away from him, and that he be fined $2.5 million.
All because he said to his mixed-race mistress (half Mexican, half Negro), in a private conversation, not to post online photos of herself with blacks.  The photo in question was of her in the arms of retired NBA basketball star Magic Johnson. 
Magic, as y'all remember, was force to retire from playing in the NBA when he got contaminated with the AIDS virus.  This is the same basketball star who boasted to have made love to 10,000 women. 
Wilt Chamberlain, another retired basketball star, original boasted of the same feat.  I wonder who would be the next NBA star to boast of the same sexual endeavor? 
Anyway ... here are parts of the conversation of Sterling with his mixed-race mistress that got Sterling, the bigoted old fart, in trouble with the mobs: 
Old Fart: "Yeah, it bothers me a lot that you want to promo ... broadcast that you're associating with black people.  Do you have to?  You can sleep with black people.  You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want.  The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not bring them to my games."
Mistress: Do you know that you have a whole team that's black, that plays for you?
Old Fart: Do I know?  I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses....
This private conversation was captured on tape and leaked by the mistress to TMZ, an online dispenser of gossips and such. 
My take?  Bwahahahahaha!   
Call me a racist, or a bigot, or whatever.  I've been called worst names before.  But the comments of these two old farts -- one a typical American cowboy and the other, a typical rich American Jew -- were really laughable truth to a typical Brown American Barako, like me  That's all.  JJ
