What?

Dissing my gurl on national radio, racist





On the March 31 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio program, Neal Boortz said that Rep.

Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) "looks like a ghetto slut." Boortz was commenting on a March 29 incident in which McKinney allegedly struck a police officer at a Capitol Hill security checkpoint. Boortz said that McKinney's "new hair-do" makes her look "like a ghetto slut," like "an explosion at a Brillo pad factory," like "Tina Turner peeing on an electric fence," and like "a shih tzu." McKinney is the first African-American woman elected to Congress from Georgia.



From the March 31 broadcast of Cox Radio Syndication's The Neal Boortz Show, with producer Belinda Skelton and talk radio host Royal Marshall:

BOORTZ: For instance, or for goodness sakes, jump in and I'm gonna say -- I'm gonna start out with something controversial. I saw Cynthia McKinney's new hair-do. Have you seen it, Belinda?

SKELTON: No.

BOORTZ: She looks like a ghetto slut.

SKELTON: Well, how is it?

BOORTZ: It's just -- it's hideous.

SKELTON: Is it braided? Or --

BOORTZ: No, it's not braided. It just flies away from her head in every conceivable direction. It looks like an explosion in a Brillo pad factory. It's just hideous. To me, that hairstyle just shows contempt for -- no, it's not an Afro. I mean, no, it just shows contempt for the position that she holds and the body that she serves in. And, I'm sorry, there's just no other way to -- it's just a hideous and horrible looking --

MARSHALL: Her hairstyle?

BOORTZ: Yeah, the hairstyle. It just, it looks like an explosion. Have you seen it?

MARSHALL: Yeah, I like it.

BOORTZ: Oh, jeez.

MARSHALL: It looks better than the braids she was wearing.

BOORTZ: No, the braids had some dignity. They had some class.

MARSHALL: The braids had dignity?

BOORTZ: They had more class than this thing.

MARSHALL: This says, you know, kinda 2000s, you know, stepping up to the plate. Contemporary look, you know?

BOORTZ: She looks like Tina Turner peeing on an electric fence.

MARSHALL: OK, so you don't like her hair.

BOORTZ: Yeah, OK, I don't like her hair. I'm sorry.

MARSHALL: That being said, I think a lot of people would say it looks a lot better than those cornrows she was wearing. You can't tell me that's dignified.

BOORTZ: Well, I'm not a big cornrow fan but I got used to her with that. OK?

MARSHALL: So she's staying the same for you?

BOORTZ: She looks like a shih tzu!

MARSHALL: I like Cynthia's new hairstyle.

BOORTZ: Well, there you go. Differing opinions.

Boortz posted similar comments on the "Neal's Nuze" section of his website, in which he said McKinney "looks like ghetto trash." From Boortz's website:

It doesn't look like the latest Cynthia McKinney mess is going to go away any time soon. Today's Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that the Capitol Hill police have notified the federal prosecutor's office in Washington that they are going to seek an arrest warrant for McKinney next week. OK, Now I've seen Cynthia McKinney's new hairstyle. There is just no other way to say this. It's just hideous. She looks like ghetto trash. Get a braider over there ... quick! Nobody with a modicum of self-respect would go around looking like that. And don't give me any stuff for saying this. I've endured years of "bald" remarks. I'm entitled.

Always Remember that: "Anytime We As A People Are Not Having Our WaySomeone Else Is Having Theirs...And It's Never To Our Advantage."

Original Post
This is absolutely disgusting.......

This shows us, exactly how black women/men are still viewed, and it should empower/motivate us to continue to move forward.
I see non-black people pay close attention to the way black people look.

Mmmm interesting.

And its making huge national headlines. They dont care if blacks are organizing themselves for betterment. Only how we "look".

As a fool, I am glad I dont look up to white god minions.
I think this guy needs his @$$ kicked ghetto style ... and then he'll think twice before he comments again on who's a 'ghetto slut'
My approach is from a 'psychologically grounded' perspective....

I believe it is a overt statement of white men's repressed desires towards black women.

It was political profiling as well, though.

Tsk, tsk, tsk--nothing has changed. However, our attitudes and thinking should change.

We need to realize and understand that when this type of rhetoric comes out of the mouth[s] of non-hueman[s] that it is purely a displaced projection of their own paranoias/and repressed feelings of inadequacy.

We as black people have nothing to be ashamed of as it relates to our beautiful black skin nor our nappy-kinky-curly-soft-course hair, period!

{PS--Though no less racist, this same message would have had more significance in meaning [to me] if the coinage had been preferred upon Condolezza Rice....}
Boortz's comment was intended to do exactly what it is doing, distracting the conversation from the "how in the hell a security officer did not recognize a sitting member of the house" question to something completely irrelevant.

If we could only find a fishing pole large enough, we'd eat forever because there are so many that will swallow any bait. bang
I feel both of ya Dusty Elbow and Honest Brother...nobody gives a fuck what these inbreds think....but they should get the schit kicked out of em as a lesson in consideration.......
Cynthia McKinney should take steps to sue the bastard on GP.

The absence of her badge was not a precursor for the mis identification nor the name calling....

So what if she had a bad hair day, I have 'em every blue moon, her face didn't change...!

And I "wish" a white person would given negative commentary on my hair or person....!

You know what this all boils down to, as this economy starts to slide more and more and the gap between the haves and have nots continue to grow, race will become more and more of a problem.The notion that an outspoken 6 term congresswoman such as Cynthia McKinney not being recognized by security is imcompetance at best but I suppect it was a big joke for someone who wanted to put excuse my french, "that nigger bitch" in check.We as black men need to realize that our women will begin to be attacked more and more by the establishment and since we are portrayed as lazy irresponsible, they feel they can do whatever to our women. Did you guys hear about the Sista in Durham who was raped by the Duke Lacross team, the way the case is being handled is something like a travesty. Sistas better realize there is no such thing as an independent black women in a system of white supremacy. Learn to value your man and realize his worth im more than superfical materialistic things , his primary responsibility is to protect our women and children.This type of stuff will continue to happen until we get back to loving and supporting one another as black men and women

This is so true!!!

The White Supremacy operative is "well" understood by many here, including the author.

However....

I firmly believe we do not have a full grasp of the hidden aspects that relate to the projection, repression, and regressive nature of this cultural group....

We do in fact "fully value our beautiful black brothers, 4ever! -- His worth spans thru black antiquity.
I see it all too clearly, if you really look at it honestly it basically boils down to common sense. The whole history of this Nation and this global european capitalist system was from its inception designed to allow rich European men to control and dominate all the Worlds natural resources and labor. The process of Slavery, Colonialism and Now NeoColonialism are mere phases in the grand scheme of "One World Dominance"
Yes, Zakar---the 99 laws that kept black folk in their place firmly outline this fact!

Actually, and not to veer tooo far off what is ["really"] going on encompasses much more than "One World Dominance" trust me....!

"Cynthia McKinney is a racist," Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, said on Fox News Channel, a day after abandoning his reelection bid under a cloud of ethics charges.

-------------------

Humph!

Does this asshole really believe what is coming out of his mouth. If Cynthia McKinney is a racist then we overcame, run the world and control all levels of people activity and no one told me, damn --
Maybe this IS a case of a congress person thinking they are above the law and rules...which is pretty much the way it is on the hill...

I'm not sure what really happen and the way this is going it will probably remain in the public eye for awhile. THEY will be playing the race card as much as possible...when it benefits them...see how they spin the story before all the facts can be told.."McKinny is racist" and "the black girl that was raped was a stripper"

As usual, demonize and dehumanize.

I work on Capital Hill. I've been in most of those buildings and been thru security check points. I NEVER display my badge and the only time an officer will ask for it is if you come in the building before 7:00 am. During normal business hours you only have to place bags on the x-ray machine and walk thru a metal detector.

Now, if she tried to go around security then I understand why she was stopped...but once again SHE'S a congress person and above the rules, which is how she probably looks at the matter. And if I hadn't been told who she was I would never have recognized her as a member of congress

Yeah, being called "bald" is comparable to calling a Black woman a "ghetto slut". Roll Eyes

Yet another example of why I hate anti-PC fucks. The majority of them just use anti-Political Correctness as a shield from criticism for airing racist, sexist, homophobic and bigoted remarks.

I fucking hate radio shock jocks.

T-FREAKING-RIFFIC. Now it's "racist" to speak out against racist discrimination. Roll Eyes

Well, he's a Republican, so that's to be expected. The modern day racist tactic of Republicans is to deny that racism exists any longer. Then ironically accuse people speaking out against racism or trying to expose it, of being "racist".

He reminds me of conservative White guys that say, "Racism is dead. White people are no longer racist like our grandparents and great-grandparents. In fact, I'd say that Blacks are more racist in general today than White. How come they say 'cracker' and we can't say 'nigger'?"


Tom DeLay, OF ALL PEOPLE, should be the LAST ONE to fix his mouth to talk about anyone being racist. Tom DeLay himself is a freaking Klansmen-supporter.
Speaking of Tom De "Lie", I hope they put his butt under the jail. And you're right Empty Purnata, he has no business even speaking on this issue. He'd better worry about his own behind.

*BUMP*

When Tom DeLay accuses YOU of being racist, it's all over. lol Next, Dennis Hastert, Jesse Helms, Bill Frist, John Ashcroft and Trent Lott will cry "racism". lol

Tom DeLay's comment reminds me of an episode of that show "Reno 911!" on Comedy Central where some Klansmen called the police complaining that their KKK sign being vandalized is a "hate crime".

To wit, when a Capitol Police officer asks you to stop because you
cruise past the metal detectors without showing ID, *you stop*. especially when black
Period. You do not strike the officer and then defend your actions as
a statement against "racial profiling". SHE SHOULD KNOW BETTER OR SHE FOROT SHE WAS IN AMERICA!
Sickening!!! I really can't stand this man! I don't know anyone from the Ghetto rocking a hairstyle like this. Regardless of their sexual habits. Is it normal to refer to any woman as a slut on the radio? He should be fired.

A racist calling somebody a racist, because she talks about racial profiling? What's next? Smokey the Bear is declared an arsonist because he always tells us that "only you can prevent forest fires?"

Stupidity is running rampant now.
Exactly, Huey!

Latest development: Ms. McKinney apologized. The Impotent Black Caucass is silent now and were at the time that the incident occurred.

But it ain't ova til the fat lady singeth...!

It's even worse than that, the CBC was the one who told her to shut up

The night before the apology, members of the Congressional Black Caucus urged McKinney in a private meeting to find a way to put the matter to rest, said a person familiar with the session.

That's sounds like something that happened to me last year. I was airing an episode of "Girlfriends," a show that I HATE! This episode, Lynn's white adopted (and very Afrocentric) sister came by to visit Lynn and her girlfriends, and there was this part of the story where she was hanging with Maya and singing to Jay-Z's song "H to the IZO" and she said the N-word.

Now, there was this good ol' boy who called near the end of the program and asked me, "Why is it okay for a black person say 'cracka', but when a white person says 'nigger', black people get upset?"

I said, "Nobody on the show said 'cracker' on the show." Then he got upset, and I added, "Ain't nobody white gotten hung for calling somebody a cracker."

He asked me the name of my supervisor. I refused and then the cussfest was on: "You go back to Africa, MF!!" "You go back to Europe first, you country-ass bitch; this land ain't yours either!"

It must've been snowing in Hell that day, because I don't usually defend a show that I dislike.
Huey--I remember the episode, didn't like that part either. And, no-girlfriends is nor one of my favorite ethnic programs...but with big-Kelsey Grammer as the executive producer I am not surprised at the various story lines...

ItAintEasy--like I said they are impotent...and weak!

Black aspiration for 'real' political advancement went out the window decades ago [i.e. I remember Adam Clayton Powell...]

off The sad part about Girlfriends is that that wasn't the only episode I hated. Remember the one show where they were mad at William for not being able to be Santa for Maya's son?

I'm like "How come these heifers didn't call Darnell, JABARI'S FATHER, to do it? He works at the airport, carrying luggage. Carrying toys in a sack isn't that much of a stretch." Then they didn't talk to William for weeks, until he embarrassed himself and wrote a poem and THEN they forgave him. Forgave him? Shouldn't that be the other way around?

bang Man, I wanted to shoot the TV after seeing that hot steaming mess.
Why should he apologize for having a life? And why William always take crap from women who just use him? They are so lucky they're pretty. They have to be the sexiest women I never want to meet.

He's a straight black male Republican lawyer who lives in LA. And he's wasting him time with those leeches? If I was William, I would've gotten with the first model,actress, bimbo, Laker Girl, Raiderette within arm's length. Those girls make the women from "Living Single"...no, they make the women from "Waiting To Exhale" look like Stepford Wives.
Sounds like a boycott to me Tmonster. And we can also start a flood of e-mail campaign. Lock up their network Big Grin.....
Did some quick research and the Neal Boortz show is out of Atlanta. There the show is sponsored by Cox Radio and their marketing team on satellite is Jones radio networks at www.jonesradio.com. Just for your own information. Big Grin
