Marc Lamont Hill and the Mediocre Negro

January 17th, 2017 | By

Earlier this week on the #FakeNewsNetwork CNN, Marc Lamont Hill said President Elect Donald Trump’s diversity coalition are “a bunch of mediocre negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo-op for Donald Trump’s exploitative campaign against black people.”

The Morehouse College professor also made his feelings on Steve Harvey meeting with Donald Trump very clear…

…my disagreement is the way in which he’s being used by folk like Donald Trump. Again, his intention is just to have a seat at the table. But when you’re at the table, you should have experts at the table. You should have people who can challenge the president at the table. … Because all — because they keep bringing up comedians and actors and athletes to represent black interests is demeaning, it’s disrespectful, and it’s condescending. Bring some people up there with some expertise Donald Trump, don’t just bring up people to entertain.”

For my own sanity, I had to take a trip down memory lane.

In June 2008, Barack Obama refused to meet with the black power brokers in Harlem, which led to Jesse Jackson desperately wishing to “cut his (Obama) nuts out”.

In March 2010, to flex their muscle, the Congressional Black Caucus voted unanimously against an Obama “jobs” bill. They got a meeting…

…he reached out to us because last week the caucus in a show of unity did something unprecedented in quite some time, actually. And that is to stand together to vote against what was called the jobs bill last week. We felt that it was important to highlight the fact that while we understand the crisis that small business is facing, the bill fell woefully short in terms of addressing needs in communities of color to really get people employed.
Rep. Yvette Clarke NY

In August 2011, Congresswoman Maxine Waters was questioned why Obama wasn’t in black communities…

We’re supportive of the president, but we’re getting tired. We’re getting tired. And so, what we want to do is, we want to give the president every opportunity to show what he can do and what he’s prepared to lead on. We want to give him every opportunity, but our people are hurting. The unemployment is unconscionable. We don’t know what the strategy is. We don’t know why on this trip that he’s in the United States now, he’s not in any black community. We don’t know that.”

In 2012 it was so bad, there was a petition for President Obama to meet with the CBC.

Congresswoman Marica Fudge (D-OH) who leads the Congressional Black Caucus, (CBC) has asked for a meeting with President Obama since January. The President still has not found time to meet with the CBC, though he seems to find time to meet with every other constituency. True, he has lots on his plate. But is is very disrespectful NOT to have this meeting with a key core constituency, especially one that voted for him at 97 percent. At this point in The Obama Presidency, this is a disgraceful way to treat the duly elected Congressional representatives of his core national African American constituency. National Black Wall Street USA movement joins the call for President Obama to immediately schedule a meeting with The Congressional Black Caucus!

In July 2013, the Congressional Black Caucus FINALLY got another meeting with President Obama. They discussed voting rights, the economy and immigration. However, a follow up meeting wasn’t scheduled.

In August 2014, riots start in Ferguson Mo., the Justice Department is dispatched, and this entire record of disrespect by the first black President towards the Congressional Black Caucus is forgotten. All the CBC wanted was a seat at the table. These are the experts. Right?

The purpose for my trip down memory lane wasn’t to play “hypocrisy gotcha” with Marc Lamont Hill. I wanted to remind the American people, and the CBC, how irrelevant the CBC has been to Barack Obama’s presidency. That reminder is important as John Lewis, Maxine Waters and the rest are championed for standing up to Donald Trump, when he couldn’t even get a meeting with Barack Obama. To paraphrase  Marc Lamont Hill, they (the CBC) couldn’t even get a set at the table and they are the experts.

What’s really funny? On December 14, 2016, I tweeted…

The tweet was commentary on President Elect Donald Trump meeting with football greats Ray Lewis and Jim Brown. I’m guessing these are the “athletes” Marc Lamont Hill finds condescending. I refuse to justify Marc Lamont Hill’s characterization of these men by stating their rags to riches stories. I don’t defend people. I defend ideas and Marc Lamont Hill’s idea of black mediocrity needs to be exposed.

I have been fighting the Republicans and conservatives to include black culture for years. In fact, the entire #DidSheSayThat podcast is a mix of conservative intellect with Hip Hop culture. It’s what I do.

By choosing this path, I have lost my seat at the “conservative intellectual” table. Republicans and conservatives looked at Hip Hop artists as nothing but entertainers. For years I’ve argued they are entrepreneurs, spouses, parents…they came from these Democratic hellholes and they can help get the people out. While my intellect has never been questioned and my conservatism is second to none, my love of Hip Hop and support of its culture only reside on Breitbart.

If you ask an African American Republican or conservative intellectual about me, they would probably label me…mediocre. I don’t use their buzzwords, source their white papers, or talk about the Democrat plantation. I must come to them humbly, acknowledge their years of Republican service and denounce Hip Hop to receive my place at the table. Not happening.

This is not a trait of the Progressive left. This is a trait of the elites in BOTH political parties. President Elect Donald Trump is changing that and I pray the more people like Marc Lamont Hill criticize his outreach, the more he understands it’s working.

#DSST: 10 Non-Religious Questions to Ask Syrian Refugees

December 10th, 2015 | By

In the wake of Donald Trump’s latest maneuver to steal the media spotlight, I thought I would drop in my 2 cents.

To borrow a line from President Obama…”Denying access to our country based on religion is not who we are.”

To take it a step further…Showing fear in the face of terror by shutting off our boarders from religion is not who we are either. Different religious ideologies meet in America. For the most part, we worship peacefully in churches, synagogues, and mosques in all 50 states. I don’t want to live in a country that let’s ISIS steal that identity.


We don’t need to change who we are to defeat ISIS. If you want to vet the radical elements out…just ask some simple non-religious questions. Of course, they’ll lie when answering but with a good profiler…10 lies should be enough to spot a jihadi.

1. Who is the Great Satan? And who is the Little Satan?

2. Do you believe in throwing homosexuals from the top of building for their sin? Would you bake them a wedding cake?

3. Do you believe in female mutilation to soothe male ego? Can a woman leave the house by herself? Drive?

4. Do you believe beheading the infidel is an appropriate punishment? Drowning in a cage? Exterminating an entire Yazidi population?

5. Do you believe in the Mahdi and do you welcome his return?

6. What do you think should happen to those the draw the Prophet Mohammed? Those that say his name without the blessing?

7. Did the holocaust actually happen? If it did, was it a good or bad thing? Does Israel have the right to exist?

8. Do you think it’s appropriate to dress little boys up like girls and keep them as sex slaves? Is an infidel an appropriate sex slave?

9. Do you believe in honor killings? If so, what offenses are worth murder? Should they only be carried out by a close family member?

10. Why do you want to come to America?


Some tips on Profiling…

(from a complete amateur with a hard knock education on how to spot a liar)

1 and 10 are subjective…one might even say, philosophical. Okay, an Elitist Progressive would say philosophical before they started explaining how terror is just a by-product of American imperialism.

To me…they are the truth bread in this profiling sandwich. If the Great Satan is anyone other than the people forcing them to leave their land or die…someone’s spidey senses should go off.

Number 5 is the pickle you didn’t expect…and didn’t really want. As a Christian, it SHOULD be hard to lie about welcoming the return of Jesus Christ. I would bet for someone who believed in the Mahdi…it would be equally as troubling to deny welcoming his return. And that has nothing to do with religion…that’s human nature.

(P.S. If you don’t know who the Mahdi is…do some damn research and get a concealed carry license.)

The other questions are like smoke signals. Their purpose isn’t to spot those coming to America to blow shit up. Those questions highlight the ideological and cultural differences that stand in opposition to WHO WE ARE AS AMERICANS. Forget your religion…if you, as an individual, believe you should kill your daughter for dating an American, you should not be welcomed in America. If you believe your wife is your property and you have the right to brutalize her in any fashion you see fit, you should not be welcomed in America. If you believe sex slaves are permissible…for any reason….you should not be welcomed in America.

YOU WON’T BE HAPPY IN AMERICA. That un-happiness can lead to radicalization and neither one of us wants that. If you want to live in the 13th century…then stay in Syria.

If they answer “I want to come to America to finally experience true Liberty and Freedom”…let them in…with the reminder, WE ARE AN ARMED, FREE SPEECH SOCIETY and we will not change to fit you.

RIP Andrew Breitbart: Gone But Never Forgotten

March 1st, 2012 | By

As the saying goes Make Sure You Tell The Ones You Love How You Feel Before It’s Too Late.  Luckily, I got to share my appreciation for Andrew Breitbart with him and the world at #CPAC.

There are two types of Conservatives I’ve met in my travels.  One group constantly qualifies every statement they make and consider diversity a cause.  Then there are the conservatives that say what they feel and never consider diversity because they focus on commonality from the beginning.  Andrew Breitbart was the latter.

Most of the “tolerant left” who spew hate and evil, vile comments his way never got the chance to meet Andrew.  They never got to see his upbeat tempo, his fearless exuberance, or his endless passion.  They never got to experience his smile that melted your heart, his words that lit up your spirit, or childlike nature that made you shake your head in disbelief that he was the man that brought down ACORN, Anthony Weiner, and gave us the BIGS.

But their hate can’t replace what those of us who had the privilege of knowing Andrew will always remember.  The first time I met him we were at the RightOnline conference.  I saw him at the top of the escalator surrounded by people.  I rushed up to get my chance to meet him and he spotted me the moment I reached the top.  I stuck out my hand to shake his and as I tried to introduce myself, he grabbed me and hugged me and said “Hello, Sonnie.  It’s great to finally meet you.”   He invited me to lunch but I hadn’t even put my things in my room yet, so he stated, really demanded, I take down his phone number and call him when I was settled.  Twenty people were surrounding him and he made me feel like the center of attention.  That’s the Andrew Breitbart I knew.

When Andy Kaufman was spooked about a black face in The Undefeated, I fired back with a scathing article.  Many news organizations, radio shows and online publications contacted me for an interview.  Every single one of them focused on media bias and unfair treatment of conservatives.  Andrew Breitbart was hosting the Dennis Miller show that week and invited me on as a guest.  I just knew he would spend the entire time talking about alleged racism in the Tea Party or the Left’s attack on blacks on the right, instead we spoke about my mission, God, and how we were going to save this country.  He never once brought up Kaufman.  That was the Andrew Breitbart I knew.

This year at #CPAC Andrew requested that I introduce him.  I took it as an honor.  I sent him a copy of my intro and sent me a tweet saying he was glad I accepted.  When I arrived at CPAC I asked him what he thought of my intro.  He said he didn’t read it; he trusted me to say what needed to be said.  As we sat in the room waiting for Andrew to give his KEYNOTE speech, he grabbed a piece of paper and started to jot down little notes.  I asked him what he was doing, he said “writing my speech”.  As we stood behind the big screen and waited to take the stage, I started to feel the butterflies in my stomach.  He looked at me, holding my stomach, and said “this sounds like some hard core porn music”.  I laughed uncontrollably and said Thank You for reminding me who I’m introducing.”  That is the Andrew Breitbart I knew.

But the one thing that sticks out in my mind the most was leaving the stage as he walked on.  He grabbed me and hugged me so tight. I was trying to give him the stage he rightfully deserved and he looked me dead in my eyes and said Thank You.  That is the Andrew Breitbart I choose to remember.

I never got to meet his wife or his kids.  I would’ve told them thank you for sharing him with us.  Thank you for handling the attacks and lies and letting him be who God put him on this earth to be.  Thank you for allowing him to inspire so many of us to stand up and fight for the country we love.  Thank you for being the reason he fought.  Just Thank You, God Bless You, and know that you are in our prayers.

But…..OUR TEARS CAN’T LAST for there is still work to be done.  Andrew Breitbart did not want followers. HE WANTED LEADERS.  He wanted those of us who felt afraid to speak our beliefs to be silent no more.  He wanted us to know our voice was as powerful and necessary as any on the left.  He wanted us to understand WE THE PEOPLE are the last line of defense for this country and our silence could no longer be accepted.  He wanted us to know the -isms (racism, sexism) shouldn’t scare us but should embolden us.  But most of all, he wanted us to know we weren’t alone and if he could do it there was no reason we couldn’t.

Now the question is will you remember Andrew Breitbart with a tweet, a blog, a radio show, or with results.  You only have two choices America or Occupy.  Decide.

Sacrificing Human Need For Material Want

March 7th, 2011 | By

As it usually happens for me, I can’t sleep and I there is nothing on the 300 channels I pay an arm and a leg to receive.   So, I stop on “Spanglish”, and laugh as the Hispanic Maid ripped the sides out of a outfit too small to fit her bosses daughter.  Just as my interest was fading, I heard an important argument I would like to share.  To paraphrase, all women yearn to be thick and full.  When they sacrifice that basic human  need to be fed and well nourished for fashion, they begin to hate everything associated with thick and full.  They find fault in women who don’t care about their waistlines, starve themselves with fad diets, and exercise until they drop; all in an attempt to disassociate themselves from their betrayal of human nature.

Is this not common?  Doesn’t every human, in some form or fashion, attempt to cut themselves off from human reality to live in the world of material want.  Some case studies, please:

  1. If you sacrifice freedom for safety, you deserve neither.   The most basic human need is to be free.  When we let Terrorist change our way of life with their deadly acts, we are, in fact, turning over our sovereignty to them.  We begin to limit Free Speech, criticize a Free Press, abandon a Free Market and gain comfort to enjoy of Materialistic lives.
  2. If you sacrifice love for money, you will forget how to love.  After freedom comes acceptance and we all want to be loved.  A person who pledges their devotion because of dollars, will not be spouse of the year, parent of the year, or friend of the year.  Once that threshold has been crossed, that person will sacrifice anyone or anything for their material possessions.   
  3. What profits a man to gain the whole wide world and lose his soul?  While we have a basic need for acceptance, we also have a Heavenly duty to obey God.  We begin to let Pastors, Profits, and Politicians lead us, whether they are obeying the scripture or not, and we dismiss those feelings in our gut that tell us it’s our time to stand alone. 
  4. If you sacrifice life for comfort, you will have a dis-comfortable life.  There is nothing more natural in all of creation than reproduction.  When we turn our backs on that human characteristic, it lowers us below beast, most of whom would fight to the death to protect their offspring.   Death for the living is easy to justify when you already accept death for the unborn.
  5. If you sacrifice financial independence for reparations, reparation will always be needed.  The basic human need to provide for yourself and your family, turned over to someone else’s management.  Is this why, with an 10.3% unemployment rate, their are jobs Americans won’t take?  Is this why we are losing the honor once awarded for hard work? 

Are we sacrificing the important things for they things that don’t really matter?  How safe can you be without freedom?  You can figure out the rest of the questions and ponder this:  What have you sacrificed today?
