Blige never got over the public response to her racist “Crispy Chicken” Burger King commercial in 2012. The commercial set in motion a backlash that ultimately derailed her career and her marriage. “It hurt my feelings and crushed me for two days,” Blige told Hot 97’s Angie Martinez. Apparently Blige didn’t learn a thing from her spectacular lack of judgment in 2012. ~ If an officer stops you Always be polite And never ever run away Promise mama you’ll keep your hands in sight Is it a gun? is it a knife? is a wallet?

He says and does things with full intent to demean and denigrate.@chamblee54 @EmoNegro1 @SenatorReid people don’t toss the word racist around lightly…they aim and use great force with intention of hurting people ~ when BS was asked how to quit outsourcing of jobs to asia, he said raise the minimum wage ~ ‏@jerryspringer Hillary Clinton belongs in the White House. Donald Trump belongs on my show. ~ At least we don’t have comedy insurance. ~ Its okay for a white person to be silenced in my opinion. ~ Comments have been disabled for this story. ~ The moderator of the debate was the Lester of three evils ~ @BCDreyer #CopyeditingProTip You’re not allowed to insult millennials if you can’t spell “millennials.” ~ In colonial India, the dam was a coin of little value. The British soldiers would say that something was “not worth a dam.” This got back to England, the n was added to dam, and stronger expletives used. After a while, instead of something being not worth a cussword, people did not give a cussword. This is said to indicate a lack of concern. Now, giving a shit is a peculiar way to say that you care. Feces is a nasty, smelly substance. To gift someone with ordure could be seen as an insult. “The Universe giving a shit.” Lets start with Universe. This entity is unfathomably large. English speaking Americans are a tiny, tiny, part of the universe. If the universe were to give a shit, it would overwhelm the milky way, with whatever goes for fecal matter in outer space. As for a church slogan, perhaps you can go back to the origins of “worth a dam.” Today’s american penny has very little value. Maybe you could say “People giving two cents.” Even adjusted for inflation, that is still not very much. At least it does not stink. ~ KimKierkegaardashian ‏@KimKierkegaard Hair flip & eye roll belong to completely different spheres; different sides of the soul are set in motion. ~ “This HAS to be said!” No, it doesn’t. The hateful rhetoric on both sides of this nightmare election has been beyond horrible. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. The railroad pictures were taken by Jack Delano in January 1943 ~ “Freight operations on the Indiana Harbor Belt railroad between Chicago, Illinois and Hammond, Indiana. Conductor Cunningham reports at the yard office where the yard clerk gives him the waybills for the train and instructions to deliver it.” ~ The other pictures were taken at Bethune-Cookman College, Daytona Beach, Florida. “Students waiting to be taken to the agricultural school farm where they will learn modern methods.” Photographer: Gordon Parks, February 1943. ~ selah
