Stacy Who?…Again

A man walks into a bar and spots a beautiful woman.

He walks up to her, and says “Would you go to bed with me for a million dollars?”

Somewhat abashed, she stutters, and then says “Yes”.

He responds, “WOuld you go to bed with me for $10?”

She angrily sputters back, “No. What sort of woman do you think I am?”

He responds…”We’ve already established that. Now all we are doing is haggling over the price.”

Conservative black dipwit Stacy “Who?” is at it again. I guess the only way the poor girl can make money now that her Sugar Daddy cut her loose is to appear on TV trying to be outrageous. Her newest rant? “poor women don’t work hard enough!”

Apparently the cost of Stacy is down to $10. Might want to change that moniker to Stacy Ho!

REVEALED: Stacey Dash complains poor women don’t work hard enough — and collects $6K from fiancé

Former actress and Fox News contributor, Stacey Dash is drawing fire after theDaily Mail uncovered her 2004 bankruptcy documents that show she was financially supported by her former fiance to the tune of $6,000 a month, Perez Hiltonreports.

Dash was apparently so broke and drowning in debt because she says she couldn’t find work and ultimately filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.

Eleven years after that, Dash told Meredith Vieira in an interview that she thinks women need to work harder and stop complaining about the gender wage gap. Dash continued, claiming that women should stop trying to make excuses about the discrepancy in pay between men and women and, instead, take control of their own financial opportunities.

“It’s an excuse. Stop making excuses. If there are opportunities, seize them. And be prepared for them. And be the best, if that’s what it takes. If you have to be extraordinary, be extraordinary,” said Dash.

When Vieira told Dash that women make just 70 cents for every dollar a man made, Dash didn’t question the data but questioned women instead.

“I don’t know if that’s true,” she began. “I know that the numbers are true, but I feel like your daughter will be able to make as much money as she wants in her life. Just like you are. I mean, look at you.”

Vieira then responded with her own personal story about being paid less than her male counterparts.

“I guess I won’t put my fate into anything other than my own action and taking my destiny in my hands,” Dash responded. “I will not play victim to anything.”

Taking that advice back in 2004 would have put Dash in a difficult predicament while she tried unsuccessfully to score acting gigs. Instead of working part time as a server as many performers in New York and Los Angeles have done, Dash did exactly what she’s accusing others of doing: Playing the victim.

Dash lashed out at Hollywood in an interview with the conservative CNS News, claiming she was persecuted and blacklisted by the entertainment industry because she is vocal about her conservative values.

“My acting opportunities have ceased because of my political beliefs,” she said. “I’m being persecuted in Hollywood. I’ve been blacklisted. My agents have dropped me.”

For two years Dash couldn’t find work while her British former fiance James Maby bankrolled her lifestyle. When she ultimately filed for bankruptcy` she claimed $28,582 in assets, but $157,703.53 in liabilities owed to creditors.

White Anchorwoman Sues After Being Fired for Racial Comment

I can see this woman’s case. I am not terribly sure what she said was racist, it was the truth for black kids from poor inner city neighborhoods who are part of the violent criminal element. Racism would have been applying her generalization across the whole black community, as conservatives and Faux News dos.

Your opinion?

Former WTAE newscaster, Wendy Bell and a few of her Oscars

 

Newscaster canned for racial comments seeks to turn tables

A Pittsburgh newscaster fired after her comments in a Facebook post about a shooting were deemed racially insensitive sued her former employer Monday, saying the television station let her go because she is white.

Wendy Bell said her federal lawsuit that WTAE fired her on March 30 “because of her race,” violating her civil rights.

“Had Ms. Bell written the same comments about white criminal suspects or had her race not have been white, Defendant would not have fired her, much less disciplined her,” the lawsuit reads. “Ms. Bell’s posting of concern for the African-American community stung by mass shooting was clearly and obviously not intended to be racially offensive.”

A message left with station management was not immediately returned. Bell is seeking back pay, punitive damages and her old job.

In a Facebook post, Bell commented on the March 9 shooting of five black peoplein the poor Pittsburgh suburb of Wilkinsburg.

“You needn’t be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts,” Bell wrote March 21. “They are young black men, likely in their teens or in their early 20s. They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before. They’ve grown up there. They know the police. They’ve been arrested.”

In the same post, she praised a black restaurant worker in a way some readers felt was condescending.

After a social media backlash, Bell apologized, saying her words “were insensitive and could be viewed as racist.” The station also apologized, saying Bell’s remarks showed “an egregious lack of judgment.”

After Bell posted her comments, the Pittsburgh Black Media Federation issued a statement, which read, in part: “The irresponsible statements demonstrate a persistent problem with how African-Americans are negatively stereotyped by too many journalists and news organizations.”

No arrests have been made in the case.

While Bell’s comments sparked a backlash from some who saw her words as racist, they also drew defenders who found her post honest.

Bell was fired nine days later after WTAE determined her remarks violated the company’s journalism and ethics standards.

In an interview with The Associated Press on the day she was fired, Bell said she did not get a “fair shake” from the station, and that the focus on her comments was a distraction from the issue of “African-Americans being killed by other African-Americans.”

Bernie to Debate Trump?

This could be fun. The Political whatnots and talking heads think this is a bad idea. I disagree. While Bernie is still in the race, I think he is in it more for the soul of the Democrat Party  to win the nomination at this point. Polls have consistently shown that a significant portion of Trump’s support would shift to Sanders should Trump be out of the race. Then again…Bernie may score a knockout.

Sanders camp on Trump debate: ‘We want this to happen’

The suggestion that Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump debate in California before the June 7 primaries would appear to be more than just a late-night joke.

“We want this to happen,” Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs told POLITICO on Thursday, when asked if the campaign would reach out to its counterpart, hours after Trump said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” he would be willing to debate the Democratic candidate if the proceeds from the event went to charity.

Within minutes of Trump’s remarks, Sanders tweeted, “Game on. I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary.”

Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but senior adviser Sarah Huckabee Sanders told MSNBC that the prospect of the debate “just goes to show that Donald Trump is not afraid of Bernie Sanders nearly as much as Hillary Clinton is who refuses to debate Bernie.”

“If she can’t handle the guys in her own party, how do we expect her to take on foreign leaders that are probably much more aggressive than Bernie Sanders,” Huckabee Sanders added. “Whether it happens or not, I think we’re all waiting to see about that. But Donald Trump certainly is happy to debate Bernie Sanders, I think, at any point.”

Al Roker Can’t Get a Taxi IN NY

Sounds like this driver’s next gig…Is unemployed.

NYC Cab Driver Pleads Guilty To Refusing Service To Al Roker

A New York City taxi driver who black NBC “Today” show weatherman Al Roker said passed him by in favor of picking up another fare for racial reasons has pleaded guilty to a service refusal violation and has been fined.

The Taxi and Limousine Commission says driver Mahabur Rahman made his plea last month and was fined $500.

Roker had filed a complaint in November and wrote on social media he and his son had been ignored for racial reasons. He said the driver picked up a white man a block away.

The commission says it was the driver’s second refusal violation. The driver hung up a phone Monday when called for comment.

The TLC says Roker was notified of the outcome. NBC hasn’t answered an email seeking comment.

Leaving America

If you have a chance to travel to Europe, check out the local TV. The Ads, particularly on British TV are 10 cuts above most of what you will see in America. This is the new British Stansbury Christmas Ad which is making waves felt in the US already – If you are a cat owner, you probably will recognize a little of Mog in your own cat.

Department Store John Lewis is known for some of the best ads annually. This certainly beats the hell out of the jingle driven drivel presented on US TV –

This one from the Lottery company in Spain. It engages the watcher by telling a story in one minute –

And this from German Grocer LIDL and it’s “Christmas Class”

Apparently, the concept of grabbing the audience with quality over quantity sailed over our advertiser’s heads. As advertisers on cable now chew up 20 minutes of an hour program – maybe these clowns could learn something about why folks are increasingly buying ad blockers and watch commercial free on the Internet. Familiarity, in terms of ceaselessly being bombarded with the same poorly constructed information indeed breeds contempt.

Black Woman Photobombs Trump Speech

Hey! Want to be on National TV?

Easiest photobomb in the world is for a black person to show up at a Republican candidate’s speech. They put every one of the half dozen or so which show up at the major rallys in seats behind the candidate to be “visible” as supporters.

This woman objected to being used as a black prop.

Organizers seat woman behind Trump ‘because she’s black’ — so she silently protests by reading her book

An Illinois woman became an Internet celebrity after she read a book during a campaign speech by Donald Trump.

Johari Osayi Idusuyi, a student at Lincoln Land Community College in Springfield, said she brought a copy of “Citizen,” an award-winning book on everyday racism by Claudia Rankine, to a rally near her home, reported WICS-TV.

“I’m genuinely not interested in him as a person, but if you have the chance to see a presidential candidate, why not?” Idusuyi said.

She and some friends ended up with a spot directly behind the Republican candidate after seeing an open seat and being invited into the VIP section by a campaign staffer.

“I think we were chosen for obvious reasons,” Idusuyi told Jezebel. “We are minorities and there weren’t a lot of minorities there. He also instructed us to sit in the middle, so we kind of already knew what this was.”

Idusuyi insisted she went into the rally with an open mind, but she took out her book and began reading after Trump demanded the removal of some protesters, and she said supporters cheered after a supporter removed a woman’s Obama hat and tossed it into the crowd.

“I thought, ‘That’s bullying, that’s aggressive,’” she said. “I don’t think Trump handled it with grace. I thought, ‘Oh, you’re really not empathetic at all.’ That’s when the shift happened.”

She decided to take out her book and read it conspicuously, realizing she was on camera behind Trump.

“Why not use the opportunity to promote a great book?” Idusuyi said. “I didn’t expect to get in an argument with the people behind me.”

Idusuyi gained online notoriety after video showed a white man sitting near her tapping her on the shoulder and angrily telling her to put away her book.

She can be seen telling the man to leave her alone, and she puts the book back in front of her face and resumes reading.

“The man, he was mad but not as mad as his, maybe, spouse,” Idusuyi said. “He had a more calm demeanor, just like, if you don’t want to be here, leave.”

She said the woman wouldn’t let it go.

“The woman kept saying, ‘If you don’t want to be here then leave. You didn’t even stand for the Pledge of Allegiance,’” Idusuyi said. “I said, ‘I do want to be here, that’s why I’m here. You don’t know who I am. I’m reading my book because I’m uninterested. Did you not just see what happened? This person disrespects women, minorities, everybody and you’re still supporting him. He’s not saying anything of substance.’”

She said the couple seemed like nice enough people, but she didn’t appreciate the way they treated her.

“I don’t think they have any right to tell me what to do,” Idusuyi said. “The lady, actually, she mumbled something. I didn’t hear but my friend told me the next day that she said, ‘I’m so glad you’re not my daughter,’ or something along those lines — and I was thinking, ‘I’m glad I’m not your daughter either!’”

She said Trump had not won her vote.

“I came here, yes, to observe a man that I already had low expectations for, but I thought maybe he could change my mind,” Idusuyi said. “Maybe it was just a media thing, and I’m judging too fast based on what the media says, and I was wrong — (but) I wasn’t. He was exactly what I expected him to be and his supporters are exactly what I expected them to be.”

The Wiz

My favorite “Dorothy” –

Apparently Stephanie Mills will be playing “Auntie Em” in the 2015 version on NBC.

Toto Is the Only White Cast Member in the First Promo for The Wiz Live!

In what is becoming a yearly tradition, NBC is resurrecting a classic Broadway musical for a star-studded live performance, and this time, it’s The Wiz, the 1975 Tony Award-winner adapted from L. Frank Baum’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and featuring an all-black cast. (Today, it’s probably most remembered for Sidney Lumet’s movie adaptation, starring Diana Ross as Dorothy and a pre-Off the Wall Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow.) The first promo is here, and while it doesn’t tell us much, it immediately calls to mind the bright, effervescent Oz of the 1939 Judy Garland filmrather than the grittier, ’70s-era New York City seen in the 1978 movie. Also, the part of Toto will apparently be played by an adorable white-haired terrier rather than a black one, making Toto the only white member of the cast.

Could it be that this time around, NBC’s live musical could actually serve as good live theater, rather than something to hate-watch and snark about on Twitter? We shall see—the failed movie adaptation aside, The Wiz is inarguably a stronger, better show than the incredibly dated Peter Pan, and while we initially had other folks in mind, the cast (which also includes newcomer Shanice Williams as Dorothy, David Alan Grier as the Cowardly Lion, Ne-Yo as the Tin Man, and Elijah Kelley as the Scarecrow, plus Queen Latifah, Uzo Aduba, and The Wiz’s original Dorothy, Stephanie Mills) looks pretty great. The live show airs on Dec. 3.
