Point-CounterPoint: African American Privilege

Grunt: We have with us today, two experts on the African American experience in America. We’d like to get to the bottom of the latest discussion point: Are African Americans hogging the limelight when it comes to being the most underprivileged group in America? Mrs. Obama?

Mooch: I guarantee you that right now, there are (African American) kids living less than a mile from here who would never in a million years dream that they would be welcome in this [shithole].  And growing up on the South Side of Chicago, I was one of those kids myself.  So I know that feeling of not belonging in a place like this.  And today, as first lady, I know how that feeling limits the horizons of far too many of our (African American) young people.

Grunt:  Mr. Lagoon?

CBL:  First off, my people come from the Black Lagoon.  Not the “African American” Lagoon.  The very fact that you assumed I’d want my title translated like that is proof that African Americans have been hogging the underprivileged spotlight in this country for far too long.  Hell, it’s not just us lagoon-dwellers who get pushed aside.  What about all the other brown and yellow kids who grow up poor around here, huh?  Not only that, but I don’t get this obsession on color, anyway.  Down in the American South, where we creatures spend a lot of time swimming around in the bayous, plenty of the poor kids are white.  I don’t know how many times I’ve had to attack white women swimming in their sexy bathing suits out a little too far from the beach.  You think I like leaving their kids orphans?  Of course not, but a creature’s got to eat.  Still, don’t think I don’t feel bad about how underprivileged those poor white kids are.  We need to raise some awareness about that!

And by the way, is that really the First Lady of the USA?  She seems a little scary to me.  Does she ever stop scowling or harping about race?  One of my people should probably eat her some day, but from what I hear, they’d have to be lurking in the pool of a 5-star Dubai hotel to get a chance.  Namaste.

  2. Y’know Grunt, by this point we figure we’ve just about seen everything a soul could possibly see somewhere on the Internet, what with about a million new blog posts every hour.

    But a debate between Mooch and the Creature from the Black Lagoon?

    I stand corrected. You, sir, have broken new ground.


    • In our own quirky way, we can be ground-breaking here at PoliNation. 😉 But I must admit, I only got the idea because Mooch’s expression looked to me like a vicious creature from a science fiction movie. Sorry to post something so scary on a family website, but thanks for the compliment. At least, I hope it was a compliment. 🙂


  3. Michelle is such a liar. I grew up in the Chicago suburbs, and I spent a lot of time in the city at places such as the Art Institute, the Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Brooklyn Zoo, the Lincoln Park Zoo, etc., etc., and I can assure you that all of those places were integrated way back in the sixties. The notion that museums and so on didn’t welcome black people the same as white ones is so ridiculous that only someone as deranged as Michelle Obama would be loopy enough to suggest it. I think all those toxic chemicals she uses on her hair to make it look less African might have penetrated her scalp and skull and caused damage to her brain.


    • Excellent points, Blue. And absolutely correct. I also used to spend time downtown in Chicago when I was a kid. I have fond memories of laying in the grass at the end of the Meigs Field runway watching the planes come it. That’s something you can’t do anymore thanks to the capriciousness of Democrats, BTW. I never felt at ease in many places because I was white, but I had to admit that it was all very racially integrated in the 1970s. There were class & money distinctions, but no race.

      Michelle is so full of shit here it boggles the mind. And her claim of being from “the South Side” is OUTRAGEOUS! When people say that, they’re talking about places where the Chicago police won’t even go. I can tell you that Michelle has never set foot in any of those places. Even now, she won’t go anywhere without Mama Robinson. She’s stealing her creds.
