Of Annoyed Black Folks, More Annoyed Black Folks, And The Titanic’s Nemesis

It seems like Obama can’t make anyone happy at the moment. Sends troops to Afghanistan and he pisses people off. Receives the Nobel Prize but gives the concert a pass and he pisses people off. Creates a new job plan and still, he pisses people off. Prozac, Sir?

The latest of course, is that the members of the Congressional Black Caucus are annoyed that Obama hasn’t addressed the high unemployment figures for the black community. The word used in The Baltimore Sun article is “grim”. The Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, one Barbara Lee, argued her case.

Barbara Lee. Isn’t she amazing? She’s like the entire world in one person. White first name, Asian last name, shrewdness of a Jew, but she’s African-American.

Jokes aside, I do think she is an incredible person. The only person in Congress to vote against the authorization of use of force following 9/11. It’s rare to find an American who would say “No” to war after 9/11, but she did, and that deserves a lot of respect.

On to another piece of news, where Nigeria is apparently full of armed robbers. Amnesty International reports that the Nigerian Police have been indicted for what has been termed “unlawful killings”. The reports mentions that the police frequently claimed that the victims were ‘armed robbers‘ killed in ‘shoot-outs‘ or while attempting to escape from custody.

So in order to do my part and show some love to the West Africans, I have decided to come up with a few excuses they can use to justify the killings.

1. “My gun went off by itself!”

2. “I was trying to catch dinner but he dashed in front of my chicken!”

3. “I thought the safety was on! I even made ‘bang bang’ noises!”

4. “He was depressed and requested for me to put him out of his misery.”

5. “He trashed Jay-Jay Okocha!”

Finally, a giant iceberg almost twice the size of Hong Kong has been spotted drifting towards Australia. Which leads me to this latest inspiration. New sanctuary for cannibal polar bears?
