Okay...okay, that meeting between Clinton and liberal bloggers...the one that went down in Harlem and yet somehow managed to achieve a level of non-blackness unseen in that 'hood since The Cotton Club closed...pissed me off too.
This bitch was please to see this issue properly addressed by my fellow bloggers of color and had almost let it go and put is down as another display of liberals behaving badly...until it all came rushing back at me Sunday during Howie Kurtz's how on CNN Reliable Sources.
Howie, honey! A bitch was beyond disappointed that you failed to address this angle when John Aravosis from Americablog.com (who was at the meeting) was on your show yesterday.
Call a bitch. We need to talk!
Listening to Aravosis discuss his "half-swoon" over meeting Clinton made it clear that my issue with the Great Cotton Club Revival-Blogger Meeting of 2006 was that I was denied the access Mr. Americablog was given...denied and therefore taken for granted.
Since this incident made my afro hurt...and Howie didn't go there for me yesterday...a bitch is going to vent a wee bit.
Dear organizers of the blogger meeting with President Clinton,
Thanks so much for asking for my perspective at the recent meeting of leftish bloggers! This bitch can't tell you how heart warming it is to know that, when a meeting happens between liberal bloggers and a former president in Harlem, black feminist voices are always on the invite list!
Way to demonstrate that you get it!
This bitch hopes that this meeting can be part of the process of rebuilding the relationship with voting blacks that has been damaged by the liberal assumption that our votes are a given.
Yeah...that would have been nice.
If a meeting of liberal bloggers happens in Harlem without minority participation...did it really happen?
Fuck this shit!
The sad fact is that I'm used to having my say from outside the meeting...down the street and around the corner.
Did I hear an amen?
That's why a bitch is so loud.
What would this bitch have asked had I been invited?
Many of us feel that we have been ignored and taken for granted.
Do you feel that the liberal establishment is aware of minority voter apathy and concerned about the lack of black participation in the political process?
Oh, wait...y'all answered that one...
