Is Un-American the new "N" word Triatafilou vs. Hunter

This blog is unedited and we love you, and you and you. Black, white, brown.

                                    Is Un-American the new “N” word? (click here)

On Saturday I called into Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld’s radio show on WDBZ the buzz Cincinnati and questioned his guest Hamilton County Republican chair Alex Triantafilou in regards to the juvenile court judges’ race between Democrat Tracie Hunter and Republican John Williams which is still undecided.

My question of the Chairman Triantafilou led to a barrage of attacks including Triantafilou referring to Tracie Hunter as un-American.

The word un-American is used a lot by mostly Republican white men when they refer to President Barack Obama.

I knew, as do many, exactly what white men mean when they refer to a black person as Un-American. They mean like the slave owners meant it when they referred to slaves as niggers. When people like presidential candidate Newt Gingrich refer to President Obama as Un-American. When Triantafilou refers to Hunter as un-American they want it to mean nigger.

I looked up the word on several online dictionaries and it means -  not in accordance with the aims, ideals, customs, etc., of the US

In case you are not familiar with the Tracie Hunter or the juvenile’s court saga, please read here and here and here.

If it’s is Un-American to sue so that votes will be counted -  than why in the hell does everybody and their mother have President Obama in court?

I ask that if you have taken the time to read this, that you take the time to contact Alex Triantafilou and WDBZ the buzz radio  (513.679.6000 and tell them that Tracie Hunter is AMERICAN.


She is not a nigger. Or a nigga.

Happy Black History month America. We love you.

MLK Coalition March in Cincinnati & Dem Chair Timmy Burke

blog post written in 2012
Who should attend the MLK day march in Cincinnati on Monday?

I for one won’t be participating in the circus. I don’t have a fur coat. I’m not running for a political office. I’m not a poverty pimp. I don’t have any money to give to the Baptist preachers who have failed to stop the genocide in the black neighborhoods. How the hell are there 54 churches in Avondale and the streets are crumbling like crack and the neighborhood ended 2011 tied for the most homicides in Cincinnati?

The only way you’ll see me at that march if my friends from ‘Occupy the Hood’ want to show up with signs to protest. Other than that, I’m staying home. In the heat.

My pastor has a great saying, “Singers –sing, Swimmers – swim, Sinners – sin.” I’ll add to that - Symbolizers – symbolize. That’s what the Cincinnati MLK march sponsored by the MLK Coalition has become – Symbolism without substance. A day in which black liberals and white liberals, and, oh yeah, Republican Councilman Charlie Winburn, and others march from the Freedom Center to Fountain Square to Music hall, while holding hands and singing, “We shall Overcome.” Although some of us never will Overcome, because some will make sure that some they succumb.

A symbolic march was NOT Dr. King’s dream. Furthermore, I don’t think Dr. King would march in 2012. 49 years after the “I Have a Dream” speech and we still have to march? In the cold? Really? Shiiiiiid.

The only thing that has really changed is that they won’t “sick” the dogs on people. Instead they “sick” sophisticated attacks. I swear if the Chair of the Democratic Party Tim Burke’s   ass is at the march somebody ought to kick him straight in his butt for not seeing to it that the Tracie Hunter saga ends. Oh, and while you’re at it kick Mayor Cranley, Christopher Smitherman (head of Poverty Pimps)  in their asses too, and a few other Democrats.

You don’t have to worry about kicking any Republicans (like JOE DETERS) in their pasty asses because none of them will show up. Many of them don’t waste our time pretending they care about the poor and disenfranchised.

No siree I’m not going to march in that watered down, sanitized, commercialized parade sponsored by poverty pimp Smitherman.

Nor am I going to go to Music Hall to here regurgitated symbolic speeches. Nope, can’t do it.

I don’t know why anybody would take their family/children to the march or the event. Because some of the people they will hear and see don’t really exist. They are not who they proclaim to be and as soon as the event is over they disappear into their neighborhoods across town.

Seriously, don’t go kicking Timmy or the others in their asses.  And for the record this blog is a fan of Councilman Winburn. But I'm about Substance.  I am the change that I want to see in our communities. This blog and many (not all of it's posts) are community service announcements.  I volunteer in the community because I care and don't need a For Profit MARCH, sold-out Breakfast, and Event to show I care.  I want my voice to be heard and I don't need to be seen.

But I’m really not feeling the march. Are you?

Edit?  Who edits?  I\We rarely  edit on this blog. Sorry Pastor.

Haley Barbour gives GIFT to Joe Deters

Haley Barbour
Eat your "MF" heart out Joe Deters.

Remember when that fat-nasty-pasty Paul LePage, Maine’s Tea Party-backed governor declined to attend a NAACP Martin Luther King, Jr. Day event? Remember he told the NAACP TO kiss his ass?

Well for some reason I’m getting LePage confused with Governor Haley Barbour who recently gave reprieves to more than 200 inmates. Some are angry and think Haley has lost his mind. I think he’s spent a life time of hating folk and his  releasing the inmates is a form of reverse hate. He’s hated so many for so long that now he’s set free those that remind him of people that he’s spent a life time hatin’ It's late I have to think this one through.  Read a more meaniful post on the this blog below.  Good night wonderful blog readers. 

We've been saying it for over four years at this blog.

Blog Readers Deters has got a lot of money in his war chest.  Trotter can win this through the power of the social media.  If you like the article, please share.  Post comments.
Joe must Go!
Joe must Go!
Jo must Go!
We applaud and salute Attorney Trotter.

Farewell 2011 – What political party will local blacks join in 2012?

Happy New Year – Who We Be?

During the 2011 Cincinnati City Council election season hopeful Democrat candidates tried to spoon feed blacks the tired line – I’m an endorsed Democrat. Apparently they didn’t get the memo floating around black communities, which reads blacks are fed up with the local Democratic Party.

That does not mean blacks in Cincinnati and Hamilton County have stopped drinking the local Democrats Kool-Aid, case in point their support of Democrats in the Cincinnati City Council race. Some just refuse to drink as much of the sugary substance. If they are a Democrat - they are Progressive, if they are not a Democrat - they are Independent, and if they identify themselves as a Democrat - they don’t vote the straight Democrat ticket, and they will tell you in a “Joe Deters lynch-a-black man minute” that they voted for Republican Charlie Winburn. Woo-hoo.

Blacks dissatisfaction with the local Democratic party can more recently be traced back to one man - Timothy Burke, Chair of the Democratic Party. The pill is still yet to be swallowed, although Burke denies he cut a deal in 2008 with the republicans not to run democratic candidates against currently elected republican judges, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters, and the sheriff. There are some recent whispers that Burke is once again shaking the pill bottle and considering playing let’s make a deal.

Burke remains on the black shit-list and many are disappointed that Burke and other prominent democrats haven’t fought harder to help Tracie Hunter secure her seat on the Juvenile Court bench. Count the votes and let’s stop wasting tax-payer dollars, OK?

A few prominent Democrats say that Burke isn’t all bad. Last month he stood with the black Democratic Municipal Court judges who fought to be sure African Americans received a fair consideration for the two openings for magistrate in Municipal Court.

Too bad it didn’t work out.

Although the local Democratic Kool -Aid is nasty as hell, it’s better than the deadly sugary drink mix served up by Hamilton County Republican Party chairman Alex Triantafilou (pronounced trying-to-fool-ya) and Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters (prounounced Hoe Penis).

Christopher Smitherman, Cincinnati NAACP President, Councilman, Stockbroker – often acts as a broker between the ever spanning space of Middle class blacks, aggrieved blacks and the white economic and political power structure.

Smitherman may handle stocks and people’s money with no problem but he’s got his work cut out for him trying to mediate between blacks and what some view as the greedy and crooked local Republican party. Sure there are good local republicans, Kingpin Deters is not one of them. The good ones, not to be confused with the good ole’ boys must work harder to be more inclusive.

Having a black mayor, a black city manager, a black police chief, a black football coach, a black baseball coach, a black majority on Cincinnati City Council don’t mean a black-eyed peas thing if every other power structure is controlled by some unethical Republicans.

Who-we-be? You tell me.

I don’t speak for anyone mentioned in this piece. I write my opinion while others speak thiers. I reserve the right NOT to edit.  If you don’t like it, don’t read it. Have a Happy New Year. Can't we all just get along? Maybe not.
