Amiri Baraka Calls Michael Steele A “Real Public Coon” At Black Writers’ Conference

31 Mar

Talk about a bad day for black conservatives! The HNIC gets black conservative victimology bragging rights on this one. And this after firing the “staffer” who apparently didn’t include him on a RNC funded strip club party, no less…

Hat Tip to NewsOne on this one –

Amiri Baraka

Amiri Baraka Calls Michael Steele A “Real Public Coon” At Black Writers’ Conference

Renowned author, Amiri Baraka, had harsh words for the Republican party and words of praise for Massachusetts Governor, Deval Patrick and President Barack Obama at the Black Writer’s Conference at Medgar Evers College last Saturday.

Baraka revealed that he had recently been in the presence of Deval Patrick. Baraka said that he knew Deval’s father, Pat Patrick, who played saxophone with Sun Ra and his Arkestra as well as John Coltrane. Baraka could go on to say how Obama and Patrick were descendants of the Black creative movement that he was a part of.

He would talk about the need for African Americans to be supportive of Obama, bringing up Hannity and Beck as those who opposed him. He also had a harsh criticism for Michael Steele, who he called a “Real, Public Coon.”

Toni Morrison also spoke at the Writer’s Conference and she revealed some interesting stories about when she was an editor for Random House and published books by Angela Davis and Muhammed Ali. Former honorees, Sonia Sanchez and Cornel West also addressed the crowd in Brooklyn.

While I’m at it, I’d also like to provide a link over to a post by “The D Spot” back in 2008 –  Amiri Baraka speaks on Obama, which includes a letter written by Mr. Baraka.

The Parade of Anti-Obama Rascals

We certainly know the animals of the right, the US Reich, the Foxes and Klan in Civilian clothes, e.g., O’Reilly, Hannity, Limbaugh & Co., and certainly a coon or two. Tavis & Andy. Some people even came up with the slogan “Strangle Rangel”. Happily, w/the departure of Bonnie & Clyde, more of these Negro retainers will replace their “ HillJig” buttons with the shit-eating grin of exposed Toms as they try to ease painlessly into at least the margin of the masses who support Obama …
