7105: Shout Outs.
Truth and Lies in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Former President Jimmy Carter continued to inspire reactions regarding his comments stating Representative Joe Wilson’s infamous shout was rooted in racism. Carter also said, “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward … Obama is based on the fact that he is a Black man. … I live in the South, and I have seen the South come a long way. But that racism inclination still exists, and I think it has bubbled up.” Joe Wilson would probably holler, “You lie!”
• Chris Brown started performing community service for his sentence stemming from assaulting Rihanna. The service included clearing weeds and brush by hand and with yard tools. Brown will also be removing graffiti and washing cars—which he’ll probably leverage into a new music video.
• Does she or doesn’t she? Abercrombie & Fitch filed a lawsuit against Beyoncé, accusing her of trademark violation. The clothing company insisted the songstress was launching a new fragrance called “Sasha Fierce,” while A&F has already been selling their own fragrance called “Fierce.” However, Beyoncé’s peeps claim her fragrance is not using the name at all. Kanye West will probably jump to Beyoncé’s defense.
