Eediat!

Ok Aaron McGruder is officially a moron. Love the Boondocks comic (not so much the tv series) but he's an eediat!

On the topic of race and ethnicity, McGruder said that to him, Obama is not black because he is not a descendant of a slave.

"The person who is one of us in the White House is Michelle Obama and her momma," McGruder said.


That dont even make sense man. Explain that to the millions of black people living in Africa. Oh I'm sorry you're ancestors never were sent to the new world as slaves so that invalidates your blackness. What a jackass!

I'm going to go out on a limb here--that was some sloppy reporting.

Aaron McGruder was paraphrased and not quoted directly. I'd like to know what McGruder actually said. Because there is a difference between Black and African American. All African Americans are Black. But not all Blacks are African American.

Wouldn't it be a little different if McGruder had actually said "Obama is not African American"?

I know I'm not African American.

Such an interesting comment GC. Cause I too don't consider myself an African-American. All of the ancestors are Caribbean and African. So I am an Afro-Caribbean or just simply black.

I do disagree with Mcgruder statement, because having a father who is Kenyan from the motherland, how much more black or African does he want Obama to be.

Wow... this early in 2009 and a black man has the stupidest line for the year. Sad. Simply sad.

Some African-Americans really make me scratch my head. Obama is Black. Plain and simple. When KKK comes looking to lynch someone, they aren't going to say to Obama, 'Oh, you ain't no real n*gger! Yur pappy's from Africa! Don't worry! We likes yur kind!' Chupse. Eediat fuh troot.

If that guy's comment is paraphrased correctly, then even a jackass is smarter that that guy.

Eediat ting is right...
No other way around that.

So many people who have always wanted to say what is black and what is not...snipping and parsing black...when anyway you cut it...black is black is black...
