Re: Why Not a Black Party?

EbonyRose ·
Mr. Walters was part of the panel that convened at Tavis' recent forum on "the Black Agenda" that aired on C-SPAN last night. He discussed in greater detail his ideas on a "Black Party" and at the end, essentially said that the 'naming' of such a group was not nearly as important as what the 'mission' of it should be. After his explanation, I understood his perspective .. and couldn't have agreed with him more. Unfortunately, it still seemed like he was talking about what would be a...

And this short buzz is all about the upcoming 2012 election. If the President had come around Black folk during his...

The object of the game is to imagine the public reaction to the events or incidents, if the main...

As I do not follow sports, I also missed this ad. It only came to my attention when some of my white friends on Facebook joined a fan club for it. That caused me pause, as when a month or so ago, all of them joined the group "Pull your pants up" or "Pant's on the Ground." These are always red flags for me, when white folks jump all over something with AA imagery. That suggest to me something insidious operating on the level of their unconscious.

Disagree with the negative takes. It's funny because you wouldn't expect such a little fella to come up with such a strong way to get his point across about his mama (first) and snack (second). It was simply a joke. Not an authentic take on Black life or serious study of single Black mothers, their children and their dating partners. It was just a humorous 30 second spot. This is one of the times where I think as a cultural/racial group, some of us are being a little too sensitive. If a...

I'm usually good on bringing up racial stereotypes of US in the media... However, this commercial made me laugh...it reminded me of all the other instances in the media when we see the "kids" size up the "adults" that come into their parent's life..... "Listen, don't even THINK about hurting her/him...cuz we're watchin YOU...and there WILL be hell to pay!" I always think it cute when our kids try to defend us.

So lemme ask you this, Ms. Savvy ... What would happen if your little man slapped a fully grown adult Black man (boyfriend or otherwise)? Would there be consequences? (Good, bad or indifferent?) Or would you do nothing about it because it was "cute"? (Just wondering how you would handle such a real-life situation? Not having children, I'm not really sure how that's supposed to go. )

I'm still learning this site (I ride the LiveCloud short bus, so don't clown on me y'all!), so I'm only now seeing this thread. I didn't think the ad was all that funny, but I wasn't offended by it either. If anything, seeing a young man defending his mom like that is positive, IMO. The only thing stereotypically "black" about it was that fact that the boy called her his "mama" instead of his "mom," and his vernacular is probably a large part of what made the commercial so much a favorite,...

I gasped! and then i ROTFL when i saw this commercial. The fact that the child was in a position to be "guard dogging" his "mama" was kinda weird and cute at the same time. Also the brotha didn't have to look at mama's behind and legs in such a biscuit and gravy sopping manner. I think i agree that a white child would not have been depicted as being placed in this position.

Even if the man was drooling over the boy's mother, it still doesn't give the boy the right to slap the chips out of his hand. That kid in real life would've had the taste buds knocked out of his mouth, for slapping a chip out of a grown man's hand.
