This blog will be about whatever suits my fancy. Chances are, it will concentrate on media misrepresentations of the American "Black community", Black politics, politics in general, and whatever else I want to mentally masturbate about.

"He also said the group had reduced his pay to $850,000.
One reason Mr. [ Ward ] Connerly has been a particularly effective advocate is that he is black. Mr. Clegg said there were “few people who can do or would do what he does,” adding that it is hard to set a salary on a job that requires enduring racially charged name-calling from fellow blacks. "
Paula Deen disclosed she has type 2 diabetes. Given the way she cooks, that shouldn't be a surprise. What, to me, however, was distasteful -- HAH! -- about her announcement was the disclosure that she is now the pitch woman for a drug to combat diabetes.
When it was first reported that then acting mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake had authorized the Baltimore City Housing Department to ignore a court order to pay victims of lead paint poisoning in Baltimore housing projects, I thought to myself that the lawyers should have a lien filed on city hall. Then, after field, chain lock the doors on city hall and hold an auction to sell everything in the building. Today, I read this:
Representatives from the Baltimore sheriff's office moved across a city housing authority parking lot Wednesday morning, tagging 20 of the agency's vehicles to be seized and eventually sold to pay part of a court judgment to lead paint victims.
The Housing Authority of Baltimore City has resisted paying siblings Antonio Fulgham and Brittany McCutcheon the $2.59 million awarded by a jury in 2010, as the agency appeals the case. But the plaintiffs, who suffered lead poisoning while living in public housing, have filed legal actions to move forward with collecting the debts. The levy against the vehicles, and Wednesday's tagging, paves the way for them to be auctioned.
It's not city hall, but it's a start. It's a great move on the lawyers part.
