Guinness Book of World Records*

In case you didn't hear - this year was the first year *ever* that 2 "African American" coaches went to the Super Bowl at the same time. Of course you heard - the fucking media was falling all over themselves to tell you. I fucking hate politically correct white America. Here is the problem - they are not being politically correct. They are being patronizing assholes.

It is fucking shameful that in my parent's lifetime that people in this country (the gretest country on earth) had to use a different drinking fountain. Are you kidding me? I will fucking punch every old person I see. Seriously old people WTF?

Well that all changed - and it is fantastic. Except now the media feels compelled to artificially insert race anywhere that they perceive it to be positive. Just fucking leave it alone. Perhaps this was the first year that 2 uncircumsized coaches made it to the Super Bowl. No one hit that angle - but it might be true. Maybe Barack Obama is the first guy with an apendectomy to be a major canidate in the presidential race. They don't report this - because that is not their agenda. Their agenda is to insult and entire race by reporting over and OVER each time someone from that race does something. Again this is patronizing and it drives a wedge deliniating *those* people from "us". If you want to track every African American achievement give them their own Guinness Book of World Records. Anything they haven't done (longest ski jumper) lets fucking get someone on it - get it in the books and fucking end this bullshit.

BL...African American

I'm a simple country boy. I graduated 7th in my class - and still was not in the top 10% (do the math ... yeah less than 70 people). My school had about 800 students. [you] "Scott if there were 800 people and I "do the math" 800 / 4 = 200 - but you said that you had 69 people in your class. You're a fucking liar!" (Sorry I assumed you were mad enough to swear). Well there were 800 people - see my school was K-12... all in one building. Awesome.

So my town is this dot 30 miles from the nearest city (Rochester, NY). The racial mix at my school was slightly different than my current stomping ground, Cleveland (where it is roughly 50% white and 50% black).

My roommate in college (black guy) used to make fun of me. I would say stuff like, "It's all good." He would immediately say, "don't say that infront of anyone ever again - you sound like a tool." I tried to explain that growing up with 68 other white kids didn't bring a lot of spice to the mix and I was pretty bland. Actually my class wasn't 100% white - my old joke (if a racial joke that is totally light hearted and meant with no malice is going to offend you just stop reading this paragraph and move to the next one).... My old joke was - "if a race riot broke out at my school, we'd kick his ass."

I graduated with 1 black kid. *1*. Actually he was 1/4 black. So my background in things racially sensitive may be a bit weak. I use the term black to describe people that are of a certain skin tone. I don't use the term "African American" for 2 reasons.
(1) Some people who are black are not African. My coworker is Jamaican - so he is black. Not African American. It's a misnomer.
(2) Some people who are white *are* African. Yeah - they have white people there too. If one of those people hop on a plane and get citizenship - BAM! African American.

A lot of white people aren't comfortable saying black - so you'll get this. "Ray? Oh you mean Bill's BL...African American friend?" C'mon people. I agree we need to move on - treat skin color like eye color. Where sometimes you prefer people with blue eyes - but you don't lynch people with brown eyes. But society likes labelling people. There has been an evolution. N-word ... "Colored" ... "Black" ... "African American" (People of Color may be in there too). We are constantly trying to be more politically correct. Just treat people how you would want to be treated. Do I mind if a guy calls me "white"? No. So therefore I assume things are ok with black. Maybe not - maybe I am a racist, biggoted asshole. But I don't think so.

Read more in part 2 of my series (Black People). Intriguing huh? I'll write it when I f'ing feel like it. But this was all setup and part 2 is where I unload and get hella pissed.

First Person Shooter

I am a computer gamer. I know - dorky - but true. One genre that I never really got into was First Person Shooters (FPS). These are the kind of games that make you kill everyone in your entire school. Anyway, the last time I played one of these was back in the 90's - "DOOM". Here is a link to some of the awesome graphics of the day - http://psychosaurus.com/doom/images/space1.jpg

I am sure the graphics for new games are better - but it is still the same deal - run around with a gun in front of you in "First Person" perspective and kill tons of monsters/aliens/Germans. Oh and open lots of crates. That is it.

I think a bold next step in this genre would be First Person Showerer. You select the avatar of your liking, "Let's see.... um I'll be Candi today." Then using state of the art "First Person" technology you strip down and shower.

This, to me, is a good time and has lots of replayability. Maybe I'll write to one of the game developers. I think this is gold - GOLD JERRY!

Fucking Democrats

If Iraq is the "worst policy decision in US history" and I am Bush - I call the Dems on it. I hold a press conference and say that I am willing to fully withdraw from Iraq - but first they have to decide on one of these alternatives (which by their very definition is "less worse" than Iraq).

[Bush voice] - I am willing to reverse what the Democrats have titled 'the worst policy decision in US history.' Our troops will be immediately withdrawn and returned home. But I am going to need some help from the fine Democratic lawmakers in Congress. I would like them to choose one of the following options for our returning troops (a) All troops of Japanese descent will be immediately interned in camps. See what I am getting at here folks? The Dems think that the US decsion to intern it's own citizens was not as bad as our decision to go to Iraq. So the soldiers, law makers and citizens should embrace this better choice. (b) All African American soldiers will have to decide between returning to slavery or being test subjects at Tuskegee. Get it? Some how these travesties of inhumanity and cruelty are less worse than Iraq. But you the fucking press won't call your beloved goddammed Democrats on it. So I am! So decisde you worthless shitbag Democrats pick one of these things that is not as bad as Iraq, by your own admission - and I'll get right on it.
