DON IMUS ON THE RADIO! HEAR WE GOES AGAINEZ! DON IMUS CAN HAZ RADIOZ! OH PLEEZE!

JEWELZ HAND.jpg7th Grade JEWELZ HAND ***(This picture was done two years ago by J-Jewelz.)*** -My son’s interpertation of his hand.—I asked his permission to use it as my interpertation of media and it’s control over our listening ears in this society today 2007 and beyond!

Why is it that this society loves to have an unending diet of hatred,  ignorance and disrespect tossed and bantered about the radio waves like a volley ball? 

Why can’t we all get along? 

I heard on 1010 wins—my  usual radio news program that I listen to while driving….that Don Imus is going to get a black side kick!

  Do they really think that is going to do anything to prevent him from making inappropriate statements? 

Whoever sits there unless it is Whoopy Goldberg, or Rosey O’Donnel will just be a YESUH,  YESUH BOSS person —like the STEPIN’FETCH-IT of my mothers days!  Ugh!

  It is so disgusting.  But I will not lie. I might have done the same for the type of money if I  was offered the chance. 

 But I would not sit there like “Robin” does for that  other ICK, YACK ,YUCK,  radio talk show Host— who went to satillight dish radio with his always inappropriate talk show. 

“Robin”  yuck,  yucks it up and laughs all the way to the bank. 

 ((((I can’t remember this guys name but you know who it is.  He has dark black hair and he is tall.  He is very rich, and I believe he divorced his wife.—-you know a realy winner/looser in my opinion because he talks in sterotypical terms on men,  women,  himself etc. )))) —I got it now!!!  Its a gentleman named Howard Stern.

It is annoying.  BUT—HE does have an audience that eats that stuff up.  Okay,  lets be honest. 

***Please help me out here—what is that guys name with the black female side kick to all of his obnoxious statements yucking it up to the bank and laughing at all of the nonesense that goes with his show?—please comment and tell me this guy’s  name!—Thanks!

 I do listen to Wendy Williams (((at 107.5 WBLS))).***  She does say inappropriate stuff sometimes….or rather it borders on inappropriate topics!!! 

 But Wendy tends to attack only the RICH AND WEALTHY—not the poor up and coming young people in our world today like Mr.  Imus did. 

If Wendy has something to say to a person she generally states it to the person.  Generally it is to rich folk who are grown enough to handle it.   (Like Puffy, P. Diddy-Diddy and the like*****)   

 An example would be how she and HER sidekick Charlmane The –G-d!      They try to let young women who appear to have confused concepts on their path in life and how they allow themselves to be  badly treated in their personal relationships—-So Wendy calls them “DONKEYs—THEY EVEN HAVE A SONG FOR THEM. LOL! —Look nobody is perfect. —But the difference between Wendy is that she speaks directly to the young people that are actually asking for her insight in life experiences.  It seems hard to believe but some of these young people take  Wendy quite seriously and then they make their own decisions. 

But Mr. Imus talks about people he probably would not even think about unless he was at work. 

 Wendy Williams comes to the Hood,  promotes the hood  and even has scholarships for young women and gives them opportunities to do internships! 

Who has Don Imus Mentored?  I will leave that to your imagination!

 But let us remember I WAS B0RN IN  1961!   KENNEDY,  MARTIN LUTHER KING AND  OTHERS WHO HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AMONG THE RACES DID NOT DIE ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO…..SO wHY ARE WE TREATING EACH OTHER AND OUR PERSONAL RACIAL HISTORIC PATHS IN SUCH A LIGHT AND FLIPANT WAY!? 

I hope that this re-assignment to his perch does not have Mr.  Imus –who by the way is not a young wippersapper and does know the damage he is doing–

I hope he does not crow up another worldwind of negativity between blacks, whites, browns, yellows, etc.  We are all bleeding red!

  We need each other!  –Just like the sea animals need the ocean.  We are one in the same as a human race. 

 I do not believe that we could survive without the other in the world.  Family does not always get along….but deliberate acts of self-hatred between the races will jeopardize our childrens, children in the generations to come. 

 Please,  you may not agree with me.  But lets try to maintain and manage those radio jocks who have the power of the air ways and have the power of influence with the media attention and commerical air time

 If you do not sponsor or agree with some negative statements speakout!  

 Why wait for the AL SHARPTON’S OF THE WORLD to speak out for you?! 

 Think it through.  That statement about those basketball players was uncalled for. 

 So I hope Mr.  Imus learned his lesson!  KEEP IT LIGHT MR. IMUS AND THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK!   I hope the radio producers know what they are doing! 

It is not fair when radio jocks try to make abrupt and thoughtless statements  about COLLEGE STUDENTS–or anybody for that matter. 

It is ususally stated that it is not fair to talk about somebody who is not present in the room.

  Well,  I have a better one. 

 *****IF YOU DO NOT LIKE SOMEONE’S METHODS,  OR ACTIONS, LIFESTYLE OR APPEAREANCE—WHY NOT INVITE THEM ON YOUR SHOW MR.  IMUS AND THEN LASH INTO THEM?

  GIVE PEOPLE A CHANCE TO RESPOND AND THEN YOU MAY AVOID THAT PUBLIC OUTCRY AND DECREASE  CALATERAL DAMAGE FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR RADIO STATION.

I will be listening and I will respond.

AS JESSE JACKSON STATES:

LETS KEEP HOPE ALIVE!

AS  I state:

Try to look past race, and look into your neighbors heart,  and see that we are all basically the same. 

 We all have same basic needs…..food,  clothing,  shelter, love.  To me the most important thing***after food and shelter is to have  LOVE!

We are Cold and We are Hungry!!!

HUNGER AND DOUBT.jpgI am Cold and I am Hungry!!!!  I can’t take it any more!!!  Last week after I paid my rent of $1600.00 my child said what are we going to eat?  

 I looked around the house and he did too….Ole  Mama in da Hood’s Cupboard was bare chile!!!  What to do?  What to do?  —Suddenly it hit me. 

 The “free food” places my mother used to frequent before she had her stroke.  I used to get angry at her for getting the canned food,  and bags of rice, and spagetti (uncooked) and also bags of dry beans.  I thought and even told her—You do not need that stuff —you have a good job at the Post Office.  

 I am not the best cook so I had No idea of what to do with a bag of dried beans.  You see, my husband  had been a Corrections Officer before his castastrophic illness that took him away from my son and I.  So when my husband had been with us,  we would shop for food and spend atleast $300.00 per food shopping session. 

 But now—for nine years…it is catch as catch can—Meaning do the best you can, pray for the Lord to increase a $50.00 food purchase to equal a $300.00 and stretch it as far as two weeks or more!   As my earlier blog on hunger discussed…”I am not eligible because the Welfare deparment only helps people who have more than one child and make less than $38,00.00 per year.  They do not care about your debt to income ratio. 

 They do not care about your net income—they do not care that you pay $1600.00 per month for a three bedroom for your mother, yourself, and your child.  They do not care about the life insurance policy that you have to maintain since your husband has left nothin for his son, and there is no child suuport.  —So what do you do when you have barely any heat in the house becuase you cannot afford to pay the heating bill and cannot afford to pay the food bill after it is all said and done?!

Mother’s are always right!!!  Get to the Free Food places—it is in your community—ask around at the churches….Don’t despair—I just had forgotten during the summer so we really suffered until a loan from my nearly empty pension  came in.  We did not got to any amusement parks, or any type of recreation.  All I did was create paintings to keep myself positive. 

 I would tell my son” Ca mon’ John lets do some art work!!!  Maybe it will make us rich one day!!!  My son is 14 and does not believe in Santa Claus any more—so he just patted me on my head and said yes Mommy,  I love you—I will just draw one picture—but I do not like to paint!   My mother said,  I don’t want to paint I don’t feel like doing that, if you do not mind. ”

I love my family—they have suffered and cried with me for the loss of my husband and  suffered with each other when we take ill,  and during the summer during my vacation we suffered together without food—until it hit me that I could go back to the free food places—no matter how humiliating it can  be. 

 But guess what—-when you have food like the beans I have come to learn how to cook…on the table with some white rice—IT IS BETTER THAN NOTHING ON THE STOVE OR PLATE AT ALL!!!  —So get up off of that computer and check your local churches for the Food Pantry—those who are hungry—God Bless and let me know if you get good results!—Meanwhile we still need an answer about the heat crisis in America!!! 

I think we should all blog, or write or call our local and Washington elected officals about the Oil and Gas Heat crisis!   What type of Christmas and Chanuka is this for our kids?  Hunger and Cold?  The rules of Heap are too strick,  and the prices are too high.  How do you expect me to even afford to purchas holiday gifts from the retailers—-I AM GOING BACK TO THE FLEA MARKET—GOOD BYE MARSHALLS,  GOOD BYE MACY’S,  GOOD BYE WALMART,  AND GOOD BYE COSTCOS!!!  How can I buy jewelry,  coats,  jackets,  shoes,  boots,  cameras,  etc., etc., when I cannot even put food on the table. 

If something is not done not there will empty stores and empty stores means the down fall of the Gross National Product and the loss of business as we know it in America.  I AM MS.  JOHN Q PUBLIC—-I CAN NOT SHOP RETAIL ANY MORE—I DO NOT OWN A CREDIT CARD EITHER—-

Give me some ideas on how to save our economy please—or better yet how to feed,  clothe and put heat on in my abode for my family.

Thanks!  riveroflifelisajoy
