Essay 4306

Voting rights and wrongs in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…

• Michelle Obama spoke out to anyone still questioning her husband’s Blackness. “We’re still playing around with the question: Is he black enough?” said Mrs. Obama during a Chicago campaign event. “Stop that nonsense.” Insisting that the lingering questions ultimately confuse kids, Obama declared, “We are messing with the heads of our children.” As if campaigning alone isn’t enough to mess with everyone’s heads.

• Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton continues to woo Black voters, enlisting Earvin “Magic” Johnson for a fundraising event. “We need a winner as our next President of the United States—someone that can help realistically improve relations in the world, someone that will work to provide affordable and accessible health care, and someone that is simply a strong leader,” said Johnson. “I know that’s Hillary Clinton.” Wonder if Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith of the NBA on TNT will also join the Clinton posse.

Magic Johnson campaigning for Hilary Clinton? Makes sense given how much NBA ball players love white women.

Hilary's finally stuntin' like her daddy, Bill.

On the other hand, if Barkley started campaigning, I might just bite.
He cracks me up-- his commentary on games is hilarious-- though he's admittedly someone who could get a roomful of people laughing just by reading the phone book.

He makes those "Fave 5" commercials with Dwayne Wade tolerable the 258th time they run on the YES network.

Like Charles said:

"My gramma asked me, 'baby why you votin' 'republican'?— they only care about rich people."

"But gramma", I said, "I am rich."
