From what I heard on a Trucker's Talk Radio show he said something to the effect "My momma told me this would going to happen..."

Something that the host of this 'citing Fox News' as a reputable source Talk Radio Show thought was relevant which of course is part and parcel of overstating his weight, drug use, etc. What's relevant is that he attempt to attack the...

I think that Raheem is saying that there are some women, educated or not, are attracted to bad boys. It's not like all the Urkels of the world are blaming other women for not being attractive. From my POV, Raheem is saying that b/c the Urkel brother isn't the 1st choice for a thug-hungry woman, he shouldn't accept being the "buddy" of that woman or the constellation prize-potential husband when the thuggish baby-daddy abandons the woman. He's not making this up. C'mon, how does anyone...

First of all, not every woman wants a thug, and of the ones who do, you can't possibly say that's a black woman's thing as Raheem was indicating. How many black entertainers are married to or dating non-black women? Yet no one steps up to say that those women are thug-hungry and should be left alone. And apparently Vivica's first husband was also a rapper. So either she likes them or there isn't much else to choose from. Her business either way. Also the thug vs. Urkel thing is a little off.

I'm told the reason President Vicente Fox is so intent on getting Bush to agree to amnesty for illegal Mexican Aliens is due to the Mexican economy. Millions of dollars are pumped into the Mexican economy from illegal immigrants who get jobs and send their $$$ home. Fox wants this to continue. Wasn't NAFTA aimed at increasing jobs/middle class in Mexico?
