I love that Mitt and I are performing!” Debra smiled, and before she could respond Mitt Romney added his two cents. “I want an all black choir behind me when I sing ‘America The Beautiful’.

We’re gonna be over populated, so we need a lot of narcotics to keep our Negroes high! A huge prison compound and a good Negro hunt.” Herman said, “I’ve heard what both of you gentlemen have to say, but you both forgot to mention alcohol…Negroes love liquor and bass music!

I Agree With Elton John: Madonna Sucks!!!

February 7th, 2012


Most of us watched the Super Bowl game on Sunday and if you watched the game you saw the pop icon Madonna’s halftime show and guess what–Madonna’s performance was so weak that to  enhance her show Madge, invited her Jolly Negro friends to share the stage.

Madonna did what she does best, that’s lip syncing and when Cee Lo Green took to the stage I was like “what is this nicca doing” Dude looked like Missy Elliott in her video She’s a Bitch.

Nicki Minaj was there too but I forgot what she did. Know why? Because British pop star, and fake revolutionary, M.I.A. stole the show by giving the audience her middle finger. Continue Reading…
