It’s been kinda quiet on the front lines in the struggle lately. I’m guessing this is why a few Negroes out in Oakland saw it fit to use the senseless killing of Lovelle Mixon as the new movement for justice. Yup, that’s what’s wrong right now with my brothers and sisters on the front lines; we’re running low on causes.
I was told by someone over here that we should selebrate Mixon because White people celebrate Billy the Kid and John Dillinger. Umm, can you tell me how you feel about that one? That said, compliments of fellow blogger Siditty (you guys should check her out her blog), I will now present to you, something definitely worth protesting, or even fighting for.
Ok, I have to confess. When I first saw this video I laughed just a little bit. Ok yeah, so I thought it was kinda funny. Though the video was funny, it is still yet a worthy cause worth the fight; yes, racism is just that important to fight. The thought of this commercial being ran on TV here in this country made it even funnier. Why? Because I could see Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson leading a boycott of this fried chicken franchise, and some of us being conflicted on doing it. What? Don’t act like you don’t like fried chicken.
But hey, we all need to get together as a people, and stand firm for our melanin afflicted brothers and sisters over in Korea right now. There aren’t too many of them over there, so they sure can use our voices in support. Yup, this week fried chicken, next week we’ll work on watermelons. And speaking of support, I’d like you folks to check out this post by Fungke Blak Chik:Mommy, Is He A Good Cop or Bad Cop?. I think you’ll find it interesting as it deals with how we educate our kids on perceptions of the police.
