“What we talkin’ ’bout real ish or we talking about rhymes. You talkin’ bout millions or you talkin bout mine. What we talkin’ bout? Cuz I ain’t got time for what people be talking bout all the time. What we talkin bout fiction or we talkin bout fact. You talkin’ bout fiction? Hold up, pardon my back!…We just seen a dream as predicted by Martin Luther.” Jay-Z “What We Talkin’ ‘Bout”, The Blueprint 3 (2010).
WHAT WE TALKIN’ ‘BOUT??!

JUSTICE. I’m so damn tired of Donald Trump I could just scream! And I used to like “Tha Donald” and that piece of hair on the top of his head. I watch “Apprentice” AND “Celebrity Apprentice”. I even own Trump University’s Entrepreneurship 101. But he lost all of his cool points the day he went on this media tirade calling President Obama the “worst President ever”, and questioning his American citizenship. It’s one thing to not like someone. Heck it’s plenty of people I can do without. But do we have to be disagreeable to disagree? Where’s the justice in this “birther bill” BS (bogus stuff) that Arizona State Rep Carl Seel authored, and Trump supported. Arizona just keeps embarrassing themselves. First they didn’t want to support the King holiday. (Y’all forgot about that huh?) And now these dingbats wanna up the ante on proving one’s citizenship because an African American (who got a white momma) is President of the United States. Of course Seel says “it’s not about Obama.” He says it’s about “maintaining the integrity of the Constitution”. Puh-leeze! The Constitution was written before African Americans were even considered whole human beings. So what does he mean by “maintaining the integrity of the Constitution.” It’s all about Obama. It’s about Dr. King. It’s about the Hispanics living in Arizona that the “natural born Arizonians” want to have work for peanuts rather than gain total citizenship. It’s about a state that’s STILL stuck on stupid in 2011. This is why I wrote “The S-Word” last week. Who really cares whether or not the world acknowledges the real reasons for the Civil War when this “birther bill” BS (bogus stuff, I didn’t curse) is verifiable evidence that we STILL got work to do in the race relations department.
So what we talkin’ bout?? Real ish or we talkin’ bout rhymes?
Obama is our President. He was ELECTED!! He didn’t steal his votes. But he’s the worst President of all the 44 we’ve had?! Puh-leeze! What we talkin’ bout? And now Arizona and other states are supporting legislation to prevent “Americans” of color from eligibility to run for office?! What we talkin’ bout? If this law is passed, Obama and other multicultural candidates will have to damn near give up some DNA to prove they are natural born Americans. Wow! Parents should just start saving their kids’ umbilical cords in a freezer somewhere. It just might come in handy 35 years from now if they want to run for office. I thought we were in post-racial America; that the color of one’s skin doesn’t matter in comparison to their character. Well Donald Trump should be ashamed of himself, right along with the government officials supporting this bogus legislation, and the media (CNN) that’s actually wasting airtime having conversations about this man’s birthplace. How do certain people feel they have the right to say whatever they feel – respectful or disrespectful? This is not a free country, but a democratic society. If enough people wanted Donald Trump to sit down somewhere, it could happen. Society has to start demanding what is better for this country. And Donald Trump’s tirades are not better. We can do without them.
The Daily Dose of Realness: So what we talkin’ bout fiction or we talkin’ bout fact? Fact one: Barack Obama is the President of the United States. Respect him damnit! Fact two: He’s an American. Every investigation he’s had since 2008 has proven he is a natural born American, and not a natural born Kenyan. Fact three: I’d have more respect for Mr. Trump if he just admitted he has some racialized tendencies and wants to use them to promote his show. So Mr. Trump, YOU’RE FIRED!!!
