D.C. Rapper Blasts Reid On Redskins Talk, Reminds 3.65M Followers Of ‘Negro Dialect’ Remark

 

 

 

 

” D.C. rapper WaleWale told his 3.6 million Twitter followers Friday that Sen. Harry Reid’s recent comments on the Washington Redskins‘ name was just his way of bringing attention to himself.

Wale, whose real name is Olubowale Victor Akintimehin, said that Mr. Reid was “sketchy” since he once made comments about then-Sen. Barack Obama’s lack of “negro dialect” in the run-up to the 2008 election.

“Anybody been followin the Senator Reid Stuff?” the musician tweeted. “Senator Reid got a lot to say about other ppl bein racist . But I did a lil research . He sketchy. … Basically he [trying to] use racism to make a bigger name for his self.”

In 2010, the Senate majority leader told journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann that Mr. Obama could be successful in his election bid because he was a “light-skinned” African-American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Mr. Reid later apologized for the remarks.

Wale, who also has a friendship with Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, tweeted of Mr. Reid: “Same dude tht was talkin down on Obama bein a ‘light skinned’ with ‘negro dialect’ all the sudden is a crusader for what’s right in race.

“Senator Reid don’t know anything about Washington team and I doubt he cares he just using a sensitive time to garner attention. Easy call,” he tweeted.”

Here’s How Obesity Relates To Gender, Race And Income In The US

obesity, income, gender-01

 

” In developed economies the quantity of food available to people is less of a differentiator than the quality of food that’s available. While low-income people have access to food, they have less access to quality, healthy foods than high-income people do.

However, obesity might not be as closely related to poverty as it is to other factors, like race and gender.

In fact, a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that for black and Mexican-American men, obesity rates actually increased with income.

For women, the correlation between obesity and poverty seemed to bear out the theory. However, there is still a higher correlation between race and obesity than income and obesity.”

Obama To Unleash Racial-Preferences Juggernaut

   If this all sounds familiar that’s because it is … can you say ” Community Reinvestment Act ” boys and girls ? For those that don’t remember ,  this policy , created during the Carter administration ,  turbo-charged by Bill Clinton and championed by the “community organizer ” crowd of Obama and his ilk , forced banks to make loans to customers regardless of their credit-worthiness thus fueling the housing bubble that led us to our current fiscal meltdown .

   This is government at it’s ” best ” … create a problem , blame the private sector , demonize them and then step in with the ” Solution ” .

  ” If your organization has a policy or practice that doesn’t benefit minorities equally, watch out: The Obama administration could sue you for racial discrimination under a dubious legal theory that many argue is unconstitutional.

President Obama intends to close “persistent gaps” between whites and minorities in everything from credit scores and homeownership to test scores and graduation rates.

His remedy — short of new affirmative-action legislation — is to sue financial companies, schools and employers based on “disparate impact” complaints — a stealthy way to achieve racial preferences, opposed 2 to 1 by Americans.

Under this broad interpretation of civil-rights law, virtually any organization can be held liable for race bias if it maintains a policy that negatively impacts one racial group more than another — even if it has no racist motive and applies the policy evenly across all groups.

Equal Outcomes

This means that even race-neutral rules for mortgage underwriting and consumer credit scoring potentially can be deemed racist if prosecutors can produce statistics showing they tend to result in adverse outcomes for blacks or Latinos.

Already, Attorney General Eric Holder has used the club of disparate-impact lawsuits to beat almost $500 million in loan set-asides and other claims out of the nation’s largest banks.

In addition to the financial settlements — which include millions in funding for affordable-housing activists — Bank of America, Wells Fargo and SunTrust have all agreed to adopt more minority-friendly lending policies. ”

  I’m a little late to this party , thanks to Bob Owens for pointing me to this Examiner article about the wondrous state of racial affairs , courtesy of the great racial “healer”.

” Al Sharpton recently said that Republicans were waging a war on Black people, (and) time to fire
back. I missed the memo; I didn’t realize Republicans had done that, and I’m not sure under whose orders.”

Fan the flames Rev ,

” Sharpton concluded that
Republicans are trying to take back the achievements of Blacks over the last half century because they don’t like the idea of a Black president. He’s simply fueling the flames of violence, hoping Black Americans will fight. “
