Boneqweesha Jones: "I don't know what it is, but it sure is a funky atmosphere in the world of media and entertainment. Is it the funky global-warming, drought-stricken air we're breathing? Brother Kunta 'Rahsheed X' Toby is with me on 'Boneqweesha Live' to figure out what's really inside the hearts of radio and television celebrities—like that bounty hunter who said the 'N' word almost as many times as that police officer from the O.J. Simpson trial.
"Brother Kunta, what is your take on this issue?"
Kunta 'Rahsheed X' Toby: "Wise King Solomon said, 'There is nothing new under the sun;' country-western singer/songwriter Charlie Rich sang, 'No one knows what goes on behind closed doors'; and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, 'Truth crushed to earth shall rise again.'"
Boneqweesha Jones: "What are you saying to the people? Break it down, and let it stay broken!"
Kunta 'Rahsheed X' Toby: "A lot of people harbor a lot of resentment, fear and animosity. A lot of people are afraid of losing their power and privileges. And a lot of people just do not care. Stevie Wonder is right: 'Hate is going around breaking many hearts.'"
Boneqweesha Jones: "Right on, Kunta! Let's take a call from 'Operation White Backlash.'"
Operation White Backlash: "I'd like to express my solidarity with the bounty hunter by saying, 'Don't let the haters get ya down!'"
Boneqweesha Jones: "Oh no, he didn't say what I heard!"
Kunta 'Rahsheed X' Toby: "Oh heck yeah, he did!"
Sue Doh Nem, ole dog, the bounty hunter, didn't lose a single fan or supporter. He even gained fans in the eyes of liked kind. As one blogger told me yesterday concerning his flag, aka the stars and bars, the more blacks protest, the more he, his girlfriend and their kind would fly his flag. I already knew that though, and thank God all white folks aren't his kind.
I'm not for killing ole dog though or meting out much punishment to him. How can you blame him too much for being what he has been taught, socialized and encouraged to be. Hopefully, he'll grow up soon. I'm not putting much blame on Ike Brown either, the poster child for voter fraud by white racists and republicans. White racists and some republicans have amnesia concerning vote frauders who really stole and mis-shaped elections. Ike Brown is the only vote cheater they mention these days. What's worse, they don't even contextualize his deeds with the poll taxes, murder and violence, et al, done to blacks. Their memories and deeds have all been purged as it they were dinosuars.
Do you Sue Doh Nem or Kunta or Boneqweesha or anybody else you know have any idea what we coloreds can do about this amnesiac condition that southern white folks are being clubbed and beat down by? Do you think there is any chance that this amnesiac condition will become so bad if untreated that white folks might soon forget we're are colored, negro, black or african-america and accidentally start treating us better and irrespective of race or color? Or do you think they will get some help before that happens.
Mr. Sue Doh New, I hear you live in the land of the free over there in Atlanta where a colored man and his family can be somebody. We wish we were there too, and as soon as ole master turns his head or takes a nap I'm loading up my family and heading that way. Any help you can give us here in ole mississippi would sho' be 'preciated. Tell the King family I said hello.

Ray Carter, I would say pick me up on your way out but, those folks are catching hell in JaGHA. The walda dried up and ain't no rain in site.
On a more serious note, I hear and feel your passion for the pain for "colored" Americans whose suffering is forgotten, marginalized or is seen as "better" because we are out of the cotton fields: The noose was in the tool box on the back of the truck, until Jena and the confederate flag has become the new peace symbol.
Justjess they may not have any "woter' over there but I hear they "gots" some freedom over there, and I been wanting me some of that freedom since I was alittle boy. The lawd is going to send some water soon, I pray.

Sue Doh Nem, I forgot to do the follow up to the Stevie Wonder lyrics written in your headline. Hate is going around and "breaking many heart." Stop it please before it goes too far. Love is in need of love today. Bring some in right away."
