Limbaugh and “The Magic Negro”

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 6, 2007

Afro-Neitzen blogs about the differences between Limbaugh’s “magic Negro” theme song and Imus’ “nappy-headed ho’s comment in the blog of the same name:

Rush Limbaugh’s racist “parody” called “Obama the Magic Negro”, is set to the tune of “Puff the Magic Dragon”.

Will Clear Channel-owned Premiere Radio Networks (which also distributes Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Keep Hope Alive radio show) cancel Rush’s show? You’re kidding me, right?

So, why was Imus sacrificed, but Limbaugh will likely prevail, you ask?

The entity that distributes Limbaugh’s show is owned by conglomerate, Clear Channel Communications. So, what does that mean? Some of your favorite “Black” radio stations/shows that so many African Americans listen to everyday will have a conflict of interest if they were to call for terminating Premiere’s distribution of Limbaugh’s show because — like Limbaugh’s show — they too are owned by Clear Channel!

Michael Husayn Young: A “Liberal” for Bush

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 6, 2007

As’ad, of the blog Angry Arab News Service/وكالة أنباء العربي الغاضب, writes about Michael Husayn Young being interviewed Najat Sharaf Ad-Din and his support for the Iraq War and his claim that he represents “Arab liberals:”

She asked him whether he believes Bush’s promises of democracy: he dodged that question, once, twice, and thrice. He just did not want to answer it. It was clear that he was embarrassed to say the he indeed believes Bush and his promises. He indicated that he supported the war and occupation of Iraq because it was good for “Arab liberals.” That was the hilarious part of the program: Young’s constant reference to himself as an unofficial spokesperson of Arab liberals. You would think that Arab liberals would at least select a spokesperson who can write and speak in classical Arabic.

Updatable Black Blogger Aggregator

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 6, 2007

Dr. Lester K. Spence writes:

I became aware of Bronze Trinity through Myblog. She’s put into play something that I said would be an excellent idea–a single place where I can quickly see what other black bloggers were writing about.

Check out her pageflake. In fact, bookmark it. There are literally hundreds of black bloggers, but she’s created a page that seemingly combines a set of topic centered news widgets, with the feeds of almost every black blogger connected to the Afrospear.
