A bitch is back...!

My ass had a fantasmic vacation. A bitch needs to extend gratitude to Brother Rob for holding down the blog while my ass got some rest.

This bitch was able to meet several fellow bloggers and fans while visiting San Francisco! We gathered over drinks at the Tonga Room…where it rains…every ten minutes. Seriously chil’ren, the fucking room has a rain shower thing that…well…showers on a regular schedule. Fantabulous! Thanks to everyone who was able to come out and share a vodka cran with a bitch! And a very special thank you to Boadwee of Boadwee Blog for driving a bitch and a bitch’s sister home after the festivities!

A life passage…
A bitch was saddened to learn of the passing of Eva Bobo, the founder of Delmonico’s. Delmonico’s is a fatabulous soul food restaurant here in St. Louis and Brother Rob and this bitch frequent it often.

If you are able to bring joy and comfort to others in your lifetime then you have lived a good life. Eva Bobo gave joy and comfort to many through the art of cooking. Delmonico’s is more than a restaurant and more than a treasure…it is home, soul, militant resistance, black, cultural, ethnic, dense, warm…it is life.

Blessed be Eva Bobo…your legacy is grand and shall extend on beyond your passage.

Moving forward…

A bitch’s take on William Bennett…
A bitch was fired up when my ass read about William Poker is my Game Bennett’s comments on abortion, blacks and crime. This bitch was also pissed off at the fuckers who didn’t step up to condemn him than my ass was at what he said.

Where the fuck are the anti-choice assholes? Where the fuck are all of those media monitoring fucks who can shoot off two million e-mails in 30 seconds over a PBS cartoon depicting lesbian moms? Hello? A bitch is waiting…

Sorry assed hypocritical motherfuckers! Whatever. When you really would like them to announce a boycott surrounding a public figure these motherfuckers head for the hills.

A bitch has several problems with Bennett’s statements. First, they reek of a call for a return to our nation’s eugenics program that this bitch is pretty sure certain compassionate conservatives would rather not dredge back up…in a fucking election year...after they let thousands of brown/black/poor people drown. My ass also has a problem with the assumption that black and felon go hand and hand in this asshole's mind. And this bitch wonders if Mr. Bennett really wants to unearth this argument when my ass can see so many other ways his theory can be applied.

Wait a minute bitch. What did you mean by that last one?

Good question, chil’ren!

For example, Scooter took this nation to war…on false intelligence…that resulted in the killing of thousands. If you follow Bennett’s theory, we should assume that all Scooters (rich, stupid, white, male cheerleaders with vacant looks in their eyes) should be…well…prevented and therefore illegal war would never happen. Just think…one simple procedure and the world would be at peace.

How about this one…most serial killers are white, straight men. If we follow Bennett’s theory, we would dramatically reduce the number of flesh eating freakish serial killers if we simply…well…prevented them.

Here’s my favorite! Think of the economic devastation, pollution, fraud and lost lives that result from marauding corporate fiends. Again, to follow Bennett, we could put a stop to it all with some properly applied choice!

You can see where my ass is going with this.

This bitch is so very tired of this shit. Blacks make up less than 20% of the American population and that includes babies and old people. Yes, blacks theoretically commit more crime…and there was a time when my militant ass would call that statistic payback…but my ass has matured some and now a bitch simply calls it both questionable and a challenge.

To the William Bennetts of the world a bitch has something to say...my people have survived the white man’s science before and our asses will survive it again. This shit ain't new, it ain't science and it sure as shit ain't defendable. A bitch will stand toe to toe with Bennett any time…any day.

Place your bets, you money hungry corporate whore! This bitch hopes that Mr. Bennett references his poker playbook and notes the difference between when one holds and when one should fold…

I've always thought that it should never be too late for Scooter's mother to exercise her right to choose, but looking at the idiot she married, I would say her judgment is clouded anyway, so we can't count on that.

There's also the fact that she is a fucking Nazi disguised as a grandmother, but there we are.

and if we aborted all white babies there would no longer be racism.

in any case... glad you are back and had a good time.

thoughts and prayers on the death of eva for all who will miss her.

Welcome back!

Welcome back! Brother Rob did a fantastical job, however, you were missed! Glad to know you had a great vaca.

As for the Bennett thing, just goes to show you, ignorance is rampant. . . .

Welcome back, ABB... ! We missed you! :)

Welcome back, Bitch! Hope you're rested and happy!

Brother Rob was a fantabulous guest-blogger, as well.

Welcome back! Yanno, I was at breakfast yesterday and my gf and I were talking about THIS and comparing it to the Tuskeegee Project and the fact that Hitler actually used the Eugenics philosophies which were so popular here in the USA at that time. There's a great book out there I need to get another copy of, War Against the Weak, by Edwin Black, and it's regarding precisely that. Some folks compare Scoots to ol' Adolf... there are others who say the US "inspired" the ethnic cleansing. It's just sick, and sadly, part of our reality.

It's reasonable to say that you eradicate any portion of the population and that portion's contributions, good and bad, to society would go away. That being said, Bill Bennett needs to shut the fuck up. Saying what he did wasn't a mental exercise, but proof that he's a mental midget. The high crime rate among black people is not simply a result of the color of their skin. Higher incarceration rates are a product of a racist/classist system, not necessarily more criminal activity. Public defenders aren't as good as private ones--don't have the time or resources to build a good defense. So once more, the system will get you if you're poor, somewhat, but not entirely, regardless of race.

Of course, this is a simplification, but the bottom line is that crime (*cough* incarceration) rates cannot be looked at in a vacuum... that is, of course, unless you have an agenda to push and the only way to do so is to ignore everything else that contributes...

Shit, that being said, welcome back A Bitch, and perhaps I should switch to decaf...

monkey said...

welcome back, a.b.b.
i surely missed a good time with you here in s.f. pobres mim! o.t. and apartment hunting kept me down for the count.
brother rob threw down in your absence. much props.
on bennett... jeezuz gawd. that fucking toad can say that racist shit on air with little to no consequence, and bolster his own ratings in the process.
the dixie chicks say they're ashamed pres bush is from texas and all hell breaks loose.
it boggles the mind that bennett was the secretary of education for reagan.

Jenna said...

Glad to have you back!

I was shocked to hear the comments made by Bennett.
I wanna know who put that asshole in charge of shit???

Homer said...

That fucker Bennett- you know he claimed it was a hypothetical situation but somewhere in his crappy brain he probably believes that shit. I'm glad you had fun in SF, hope you had lots of cran & vodka!

Well everything old is new again. Yes, it is true that the eugenics movement that was popular in the US was used by the Nazi establishment.The US exported racism around the world. We are living in that same time. It is as if history has warped over itself and has returned to all the crap of the past. These are strange times indeed. Fact is there is only one race, the human race. These rednecks who want to blame blacks for everything are such idiots. They really think that whites do not commit any crimes, are not poor, and do not receive welfare. These crazy white people are really sick and really sad. I mean what has gone wrong in their upbringing that they think in these ways and actually verbalize thier insanity. They are really sick people. I am so sad for them. Having said that how do we retaliate? Lets write every newspaper in our towns speaking out against this insanity!

Planned Parenthood Advocates Abortion to Reduce Crime

And the bizarre thing is that Bennett, who explicitly rejects abortion, is under attack.

Gordo said...

As much as I despise Bill Bennett, I don't think he was publically advocating racial genocide (much less understanding the complications - quadroons and octoroons? dark-walnut-colored south asians?) as much as he was combining his lack of understanding of what he was dicussing with his racist assumptions.

The guy who wrote the book responded to Bennett's comments by making it clear that his research supports the idea that the more easily abortion is available to people who don't want to have children at that time, the lower the crime rate becomes when those unwanted kids get old enough to commit crimes (not that all of them do, but having a shitty upbringing certainly makes it more likely.) He said he also pointed out in his book that when you add in all the variables - age of mother, income, single-parent, education, etc. that race becomes unimportant in the equation.

So the really telling thing about Bennett's comment is that he assumed that the most important abortion-crime connection was the race of the mother and potential child. Not poverty, not inability to raise the child with the attention it needs, not helping it get a good education, not starting out life with a lot of strikes against it. Just race.
