Sorry. You will just have to bear with me on the baseball allusions now that Spring Training is in full swing (couldn’t resist that pun -sorry).
John Conyers stepped up to the plate on this federal judge for his racist and misogynist “joke” about Barack Obama. As you all know, I am no Obama fan, but my issues with him have to do with primary campaign activities, as well as policy moves (and lack of same) since he took office. Racism has no role, should not, in ANY American discussion, campaign, or courthouse.
John Conyers is one of those people with whom I would trust my life without ever having been fortunate enough to meet him. Bottom line, I guess, is that I would trust him to be POTUS. He is not running for that, but he is rightfully calling out Richard F. Cebull for his racist remarks.
Here is a clip from tonight’s The Ed Show on the issue. Value added: our homegirl, Karen Finney comments. She happens to have some experience in this racist arena. I love her. “He’s old enough to know.” (The judge). Yes, Karen. He’s also old enough to be removed from the bench since he lives in a different century from the rest of us. I hope Rep. Conyers extracts some payment I hope it is the max.
