Re: Obama Tells Congressional Black Caucus to "Stop Complaining' - Jobs Bill Will Put People Back to Work.

I counted 83 times President Obama used the word or versions of the word "we" in this speech regarding what "we" as African Americans should be doing but after 3 years of evading Black folk except for showing up and giving speeches in "safe from the public wrath of White folk" larger Black venues like the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Phoenix Awards Dinner and not going to any African American local urban/surbuban communities the same way he goes to farmland, back yard, hay...

No, it's not just her! That commercial rubbed me the wrong way, too! But unlike her, I know exactly what it was that I didn't like about it! It was the portrayal of a Black child that young having no home-training and no respect for an adult - and a Black man at that!! Dude should have dropped-kicked his little ass into the next millennium, if you ask me! And that might have been funny! (j/k) But, no, I was not amused by that ad.

Yemaya said: "This little boy in a satirical way was saying to a grown ass man, you will respect my mama!" And that little boy would've had his narrow behind sizzling after he said that to me.

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. Would the commercial have been as popular with...

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. )

ROFL ... okay, I understand that. I can also understand the need/desire of a little one to protect his Mom ... understanding that one day he will be a man and, in the meantime, may be a little eager to take the duty/responsibility seriously. And with that I have no problem! Admittedly, most of the single mothers I know have raised their sons (and daughters) to be respectful of adults. However ... I do know some that do not.

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.

Aside from that, he had no business being "fresh" or "smart" with an adult. Period.

Manufacturers publish coupons to bring product awareness, boost sales and to promote new items. When Coupons are published they have an expiration date anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months from the date of publication. Generally within the life of the coupon, there will be a sale at one of your local stores and you can match the coupon to the sale for additional savings. So, the key concept is to get the coupons for items you normally would purchase and hold them until there is a sale. Patience...

They sent Obama a message and Obama, at the UN, changed his tone and ways concerning Isreal and the Palestenians. Obama talks down and at black people, which helps to secure his white support.
