Someone finally came to their senses: Rachel Dolezal ain't coming here

I cannot speak for the late Miss Lena Horne, but I can't imagine she
would think that this was a good idea.  Oh, no. Oh, Hell no.

Baltimore, has a race issue.

And for very good reason.  African Americans have been used, abused, been demonized and mistreated in the U.S.   And in Baltimore, they have received the short end of the stick for far, far too long.  I cannot list the indignities, but when things heated up over the murder of Freddie Gray, over two years ago, they boiled over.

Add to that the mishandling of the charges against the police officers involved in the Freddie Gray case, and other indignities foisted upon the black community since then and you understand that the tensions are just has high.

INTO THIS comes some idiot at the Baltimore Book Festival who booked Rachel Dolezal - the White woman who pretended to be black and ran the Spokane NAACP office - to make an appearance for her new book, In Full Color: Finding my way in a black and white world to appear at the event.

Shit, Cookie says.

Seriously.  What the hey.

A friend said to me "So now she's an author?"

My friend Nita said "They invited the female Sideshow Bob?  Here? Really? Really?"

This was a terrifically bad idea.  Especially at what looks to be at the end of a long, hot summer.

I cannot speak for the Black community, but I know as a gay man that if someone had booked John Paulk  (The former head of Exodus International - the pray away the gay people - who got caught hustling drinks in Mr. P's a number of years ago) to speak at the Baltimore Pride festival, Cookie would put his foot down.  The paunchy Mr. Paulk ain't welcome here. And that is the nicest thing I can say about it.

But thankfully, either some came to their senses or their was a come to Jesus meeting, someone might have had a foot up their ass, but the "invitation has been rescinded."

I don't wish any bad on the woman, she just needs to find an apology, find a different message and stop acting like she has the right to speak for people who can speak better than her on issues of their identity.

May cooler heads prevail.

Mixed marriages never work

We all knew that the bride was heading for heartbreak.

She married the Tapioca Prince, but it didn't work out because he wouldn't touch her, and she was not gonna let that gunky lunky white stuff slide down her throat.  They were on an espresso track to a dessert, when she decided that like all 1950s girls, she would commit to her husband because in heart she loved him.  And because no one really likes a canned Danish ham go to waste.

Admit it.  Now that you have seen Princess Spamalot, you are tight like two dollar watch because your caterer never gave you this option.  That buffet plate needed a little bit-o-height, but not enough to outshine the cake.

Marry in haste, reception at leisure.

Now that you know what your friends are missing, take one to their wedding.  The secret is that dressed meat is hiding a crocheted toilet paper holder for a skirt attached. This centerpiece goes from the buffet table to the bathroom just like you will!

Think about it: Winky Dink

I hate to pop that childhood illusion that millions of baby boomers fell for: but Winky Dink never really needed your help. 

It was a scam.

You were played, Dork.

Winky Dink always made it from one side of the screen to the other.  You didn't have to draw a bridge.


Winky Dink was a Warlock and floated across the screen. Drunken Warlock.  Look at that red nose.

So what happens to all that rage? 

Trump wins the White House.  That's what.

Every God damned Trumpster loving dickwad that voted for the President did so because they fell for the Winky Dink Scam.

And in the back of their minds, Winky Dink could never have made it across the TV screen.  Winky Dink only made it across because these idiots were there for Winky Dink.

Then the world turned on them and shattered the myth.

And the outcome?  Trump.

Think about it.
