Still Moooonnnkeying Around...
By S-Dot for The S-Dot Files
Hmm...this doll could be endorsed by the "Boss" rapper William Leonard "Rick Ross" Roberts II who's also fond of calling black people "moooooonnnnkey" as he repeatedly said to 50 Cent during their recent beef in which he got pummeled into virtual obscurity. So, if we're going to get mad about Costco selling lil' monkey dolls, get mad about Rick Ross and stop giving him a pass because you nod your head to his music. It's terrible that they would put out a product like this, but its hypocritical for us to get upset about them and then not deal with our own. Remember, Rick Ross began making those mooooooooonnnnnkey" comments mere days after the cartoon illustration depicting President Obama as a monkey. Let's stop the double-standards. If it's wrong for "them" it's wrong for "us" too.
Let's end the mongrelization of ALL people of color by ALL people.
Stop monkeying around people. Get Your Mind Right, it's not a Game out here. On this week's The BOOTY Call Show we're going to be doing it a little different. Stay tuned for details during the week.
In the meantime, and in between time, check out last Friday's show episode #10, "Reclaiming Your Personal Power" and don't forget to peep the archives to catch up.
