to friends of all negroes:
a rap song i just heard on a "retro" radio-station is appalling. i don't know the racist company which released it, i don't know the singer, and i can't believe that such a song would not have been banned from the radio. just what exactly is being implied in a song-title as racist as "i ain't too brown to beg" - i will tell you. anyone saying "i ain't too brown to beg" is discriminating against anyone who is not white - "i ain't too brown to beg" is so obviously stating that anyone who is not white is a welfare-seeking lowlife who begs and who relies on handouts to survive. handouts in the form of programs like welfare which give money to lowlifes who are too talentless to earn a legitimate living, handouts in the form of programs like affirmative action which give a college-education to lowlifes who are too stupid to get into college based on their minds alone.
i guess handouts have become a way of life, though, and it's no longer considered to be shameful to receive them. maybe i just think that "i ain't too brown to beg" is a racist thing to say because i don't understand that it doesn't embarrass negroes to receive free food and free education based on the lackluster abilities of their lackluster race. i'm sure it doesn't embarrass "strong women" to know that requirements for the military are lessened for members of the shorter/smaller/weaker (lesser) gender. everywhere i go, it seems that people have accepted the unwarranted overcompensation that is given to losers to make them feel like winners. maybe that's why nobody is offended by a song called "i ain't too brown to beg".
but, still...nobody has a backbone anymore. i am a man - i don't have the egg-bleeding vagina or the milk-spouting mammary-glands to be a mother, but i don't care because my gender was not designed for that. what kind of self-discontent and testosterone-lacking vag-hole is hell-bent on getting society to swallow the jagged little "a woman can do anything a man can do" pill?! the token "strong woman" won't accept her lack of physical aptitude, she does all she can to guise it by basing every physical competition in existence on gender, but why can't the token "strong women" accept that she simply cannot do anything a man can do? men accept that they don't bleed eggs and spout milk, for crying out loud, why can't women accept that are the members of the shorter/smaller/weaker gender who aren't as hungry or as horny as men are? "i ain't too brown to beg," i guess that, in today's society, a negro is too proud to realize the shame of programs like welfare and affirmative-action. i guess that, in today's society, a woman is too proud to realize that she simply cannot do anything a man can do.
it still bothers me, though, a song-title as racist as "i ain't too brown to beg".
i would so much like not to have heard these words being spoken over the radio. i am just as offended to hear these words as i was when i first heard jimi hendrix say "excuse me while i kiss this guy".
"excuse me while i kiss this guy" - a man who is saying that he kisses other men is only saying that he reveres masculinity and that he doesn't feel that he's man enough to regard all men as commonplace, and that's just as offensive to hear as someone saying that they're not white enough to stop begging.
