Jesse Jackson Loves Obama

(I see the future! And it's biracial!!!)

Start Snitching is busy trying to eat cheeseburgers with LeBron James and Warren Buffett, but I just saw that Jesse Jackson is ready to let go of the 80's and endorse Obama.

I'd take that nomination over Al Sharpton's anyday.

Maybe some of the Negro sheep out there will drop their foolish bellyaching about Obama's nigrosity and get on board.

LeBron James and Warren Buffett, Best Friends Forever?

(These Negroes sure jump high...)

Warren Buffett, who could buy the whole damn NBA, fuck the Cavs, was chilling at the Cavs game against the Nuggets to cheer on his main nigga, LeBron James.

Yea, you read that right,Warren Buffett was cheerleading for LeBron James.

  • "He wanted a few tips on basketball and I wanted a little advice on money," joked Buffett, estimated by Forbes Magazine to be worth $52 billion. "We switch. He tells me what socks to buy and I tell him what stocks to pick."

Yuk, yuk, yuk.

How in the hell does LeBron James know Warren Buffett you ask? It wasn't just a ploy by David Stern to get old white men to watch basketball.

That's how you meet billionaires? Eat some fucking cheeseburgers? Man, I got this shit all twisted. I thought you twist out their daughters and force yourself into the will...

All jokes aside, I respect LeBron using his ability to put a ball into a net to climb that social ladder. So many NBA players and athletes in general never grow out of the state of niggerdom they enter the professional sports world with.

Cough... Artest, Owens, Pacman Jones, Ray Carruth, Carmelo Anthony, Allen Iverson, Mike Tyson... Cough.

Instead of using their riches to try and open the new doors in front of them, they throw bags of dollars bills in the air and strip clubs and cause shoot-outs.

Tis a damn shame.

If you have to model yourself after a wealthy white man, it would be hard to do better than Buffett. As the second wealthiest man in the world, Buffett is ridiculously modest, he still lives in Nebraska and he's going to give away most of his money to Bill Gates' charity.

Kudos to you LeBron.

- I'm not going to pretend to be up on the NBA in general, especially this year. But Kobe even has a hater like he standing up and applauding. He even has people calling him MVP, better than MJ and more gully than Jesus Christ on Easter morning.

And this is coming from a guy who spent many years losing his voice cheering against the Lakers in the playoffs. Don't get it twisted, I'm no front-runner, I still don't want the Lakers to do shit in the playoffs. But this dude is single-handedly doing what LeBron and all them other new cats were supposed to be doing. Keep the NBA interesting and getting people talking.

Can we let Kobe out of fake rape/Duke LaCrosse purgatory?
How many more 50 point games does he need until he gets his endorsements back?

Obama wants the Duke LaCrosse players let off, can he get Kobe off too?

Snitch of the Week: 3/18 - 3/24 (Anonymous Snitch)

So the Washington Post went against their normal policy and posted an anonymous Op-Ed piece by a John Doe who received a National Security Letter stating that he had to turn over information on a business client to the government and remain absolutely silent about this request or else he would get scooped up on some super spy shit. This obviously put him in a weird ass position.

From the article,

  • Living under the gag order has been stressful and surreal. Under the threat of criminal prosecution, I must hide all aspects of my involvement in the case -- including the mere fact that I received an NSL -- from my colleagues, my family and my friends. When I meet with my attorneys I cannot tell my girlfriend where I am going or where I have been. I hide any papers related to the case in a place where she will not look. When clients and friends ask me whether I am the one challenging the constitutionality of the NSL statute, I have no choice but to look them in the eye and lie.

    I resent being conscripted as a secret informer for the government and being made to mislead those who are close to me, especially because I have doubts about the legitimacy of the underlying investigation.

That's some real shit right there.
It's all fun and games to mouth off against the government until you get one of these National Security Letters that the Government has been handing out like party favors in the mail.
How many American citizens are either willfully dropping dimes on their neighbors because George Bush got them shook or being forced to drop dimes because they are scared out of their minds that the NSA will come down off a helicopter and disappear their ass.

This is why I'm constantly highlighting the type of snitching that sheds light on reality that needs some daylight. Taking notes and snitching on your neighbors for Bush is a bitch move. That's the type of shit these ignorant Negroes need to wear a "Stop Snitching" shirt for.

Speaking out against the steps that will lead this country into a surveillance state deserves respect.

John Doe says it perfectly,

  • "I recognize that there may sometimes be a need for secrecy in certain national security investigations. But I've now been under a broad gag order for three years, and other NSL recipients have been silenced for even longer. At some point -- a point we passed long ago -- the secrecy itself becomes a threat to our democracy. In the wake of the recent revelations, I believe more strongly than ever that the secrecy surrounding the government's use of the national security letters power is unwarranted and dangerous. I hope that Congress will at last recognize the same thing."

John Doe, for not ratting out on your fellow citizens, for no damn reason, you are the Snitch of the Week.

Will The Muslims Ever Love Us?

(If he can't make 'em, no one can.)

You may be thinking, "What the fuck does Wolverine have to do with the Middle East?" so let me explain.

Marvel Comics is opening a $1 billion comic book theme park in 2011, located in the Dubai of the United Arab Emirates. This is fresh off of the United Arab Emirates buying the rights to open a Louvre in Abu Dhabi for $1.3 billion.

Keep in mind this is the same country that got shut the fuck down when they tried to buy the American ports.

Despite our accusing them of being terrorists trying to bomb our ports, which some of them might be, they are still going forward with serious moves to Westernize their country. As one of the more "liberal" areas in the Middle Easts, it would make sense that they Westernize their country as much as possible to appeal to those that pump the tourism dollars into their country.

These mother fuckers are so damn liberal that they are already planning for when the oil runs out, so that they can hook us on the wind, solar and hydrogen power crack when they get it popping. It'll be a damn shame if the oil runs out and we are still looking to the Arab world for our new energy fix.

Reading about the Louvre and a Marvel Comics theme park in the UAE, got me thinking of other places in the Middle East don't have even have love for their fellow Muslims, let alone for the West. Peep this article about the terrorists who used children to get past a military checkpoint, then jumped out of the car, left the children inside and then blew the car up.

They did all of this and only killed 3 people, who were Muslim civilians. In terrorist math that's a net Jihad gain of 1.

When people are willing to kill 2 kids just to get 3 civilians, you have to look at the UAE new initiatives and wonder if they will be terrorist targets.

Will the Al-Qaedas try to take out the X-Men roller coaster?
Will the Taliban try to cut off the Arab Mona Lisa's head at the Louvre?

These symbols of Western culture will surely be sexy ass targets for the freedom-haters and who knows that the state of the Middle East will be next decade in 2011 when these projects launch?

I have no idea, but I do know that if they want to have a chance to survive out there, Wolverine needs to be the Western ambassador to the Middle East. Think about it, he's violent, loves blades, he's hairy and anti-authority, he was betrayed by the government and although he's Canadian we think of him as American and overseas it's better to be Canadian than American anyway.

I got it all figured out Secretary of State Condi Rice.
Holla at Start Snitching.

The Shield Is So Close I Can Taste It

(Pull it, please...)

It's been more than 12 months since The Shield was on the air, but by God, that holy time at 10 PM on Tuesday is coming to FX on April 3rd.

I found this interview on IGN with the most hated man on cable television, Walt Goggins, who plays Shane on the show. He's actually much smarter than you'd imagine based on how damn stupid Shane is.

There is a 15-minute mini-episode on Yahoo! TV that picks up right where the 5th season ended. It's good stuff.

While the Sopranos whimpers to a close and Lost becomes lost in own mythical bullshit, The Shield continues to be as relevant and powerful as ever. With the ethnic tensions in L.A.; the father-son relationship between Vic and Shane; all the betrayal and hypocrisy that exists between them, along with the depth of the supporting cast and Oscar-winning actor, Forest Whitaker coming back, The Shield is going to be on some Shakespearean shit this season.

Chris Rock Is Still Hilarious

Peep this clip of Chris promoting his new movie, "I Think I Love My Wife" and dropping politics on HBO's "Real Time."

Shit is hilarious. "Real Time" is actually pretty good too.

Anyone saw the movie?

It didn't do that hot last weekend, but none of Chris Rock's movies really do. And besides it doesn't have the lowest common denominator coon factor that a "Norbitt" has. It was actually based on a French film. Not exactly box office gold.

What's next movie marketing people?
An inspirational movie about black people swimming?

Oh wait,

My bad.

- Also, didn't I tell y'all that NYC negroes where fiending for a riot?

Sean Bell verdict be damned, the negroes will riot!
Surely a slightly hard foul between two Brooklyn basketball teams is a worthy cause for an uprising...

As always, I blame rap.

Snitch of Week: 3/11 - 3/17 (Khalid Shaikh Mohammed)

I was going to pick the six-year old girl who called the cops on her mom,

  • Jenkins said the girl was wise to her mother's cocaine dealing, telling them she chops up a white substance, puts it in bags and takes them and the girl to alleys. There, people gave the mother money for the bags, police said the girl recounted.

But I have to pick Khalid Shaikh Mohammed or KSM, who last week confessed to committing every terrorist act ever as the Snitch of the Week.
The dude was dropping science about assassination attempts and terrorist plans that weren't even previously disclosed.

  • Mr. Mohammed also outlined a vast series of plots that were not completed. Among his targets, he said, were office buildings in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York; suspension bridges in New York; the New York Stock Exchange “and other financial targets after 9/11”; the Panama Canal; British landmarks including Big Ben; buildings in Israel; American embassies in Indonesia, Australia and Japan; Israeli embassies in India, Azerbaijan, the Philippines and Australia; airliners around the world; and nuclear power plants in the United States.

That's a lot of terrorism.

At first I thought he must have gotten the shit tortured out of him and that all his exploits made him the gulliest terrorist ever (Start Snitching loves America and freedom, don't get it twisted) but then my boy Sam pointed out to me that he might just be pulling a "Wee-Bey."

And this article pretty much proved him right. KSM basically took the fall on a bunch of charges so that his fellow Arabs could get off easy and his rep could go up all across the Middle Eastern streets.

The real question is, does KSM have a son that will fail to live up to his father's gully ways and then run away from his legacy a la "Namond Brice?"

KSM, for bringing to light the realness of the "War on Terror" and the scariness of men with large amounts of back hair, you are the Snitch of the Week.

- Also noteworthy in the world of Snitching was the fact that Guiliani gets paid by Hugo Chavez.

Despite how dirty the history on Guiliani is, he is better than any of the other crazy ass choices for President coming from the Republican side.

NYC Dodged a Bullet Sean Bell Didn't Get To

(Still making it rain for Sean...)

New York just dodged a big ass riot by indicting 3 of the officers involved in the Sean Bell shooting.

Shit was already getting hot for the NYPD, 2 cops were shot by a pizzeria (video of the shooting here is pretty crazy) a few days ago and another one caught a bullet up in Harlem.

The Grand Jury tried some shady shit by bringing in a "mystery witness" who claimed to have seen a fourth man jump out of the car and shoot at the police, but Bloomberg shut all that down with the quickness. With black male joblessness around 50% in NYC, there a lot of Negroes with the free time to share their unpleasant feelings about a grand jury ruling they weren't feeling.

Y'all thought those poor Africans who rioted in the French suburbs two years ago were gully?

U.S. Negroes export ignorance overseas through (c)rap music, so rest assured the French got their rioting strategies from us. A NYC area riot would put the East Coast back on the map. With NYC's crime rate dropping like the black population in Harlem, ghetto New Yorkers have been waiting for the opportunity to prove their gulliness.

Luckily, they didn't get their chance and blacks remain placated. Nothing to see here colored folk. Please get back to "throwing some D's on that bitch."


- Management

Meanwhile, as NYC gets safer and more Disneyfied the rest of the country has lost their damn minds.

You know shit is real in the field when a little girl's dog got Godfathered (meaning her dog's head was cut off and sent to her.)

Are New Yorkers actually safer staying home?

Snitch of the Week: 3/4 - 3/10 (Leroy Nicholas Barnes)

It's pretty disgusting how a whole culture has emerged around glorifying the infamous drug kingpins who decimated the black community throughout the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s. People memorize their exploits like baseball statistics and swear by their glorified street code like that shit is worth it’s weight in toilet paper. That’s why this article from the NY Times on Nicky Barnes was such a kick in the ass. This shit is really worth the read.

Crime’s Mr. Untouchable Emerges From the Shadows

For those who don’t know, Nicky Barnes, now 74-years old, was a major heroin dealer in Harlem who was running shit in the 70’s. His smug pose above, which appeared on a magazine cover, caused Jimmy Carter to make sure the book was thrown at him when he was brought in and he caught a life sentence with no parole. As always, the people wanted for the craziest shit get busted on nonsense.

  • “He was pulled over on a traffic violation and was not carrying ID. The two arresting officers did not know who they had caught until they brought him into the police station.”

So it goes.

Apparently he was on some real life Wire shit,

  • “Barnes was the leader of the so-called "Council of Seven", a consortium of Harlem based heroin dealers who organized their retail operations and their revenues to create legitimate businesses to protect their illicit assets. They even had a seven word oath: "Treat my brother as I treat myself."”

You can imagine how long that bullshit lasted. The council stopped paying his legal fees shortly after the shit went down and one of them started twisting out his wife.

Damn. Please believe that Barnes flipped the damn script.

  • ““They had a sleeping lion, a caged lion,” he recalled, “and they woke him up.” And so Mr. Barnes roared, so ferocious a government witness that scores of drug dealers were convicted. He forwarded a list of 109 names, 5 of which were council members, along with his wife's name, implicating them all in illegal activities related to the heroin trade. Barnes helped to indict 44 other traffickers, 16 of whom were ultimately convicted. In this testimony, he implicated himself in eight murders. After Barnes cooperated with the government by working as an informant, Rudolph Giuliani sought reversal of Barnes' life sentence, which was shortened to a 30 year term. He was released into the federal witness protection program in 1998.”

All of this because of a ho...

Now he’s out and trying to sell his book and promote his movie.

It’s a pathetic testament that someone who obviously had the business savvy to run such a successful organization has to live out the remainder of his life as a John Doe in Whitey McWhiteBread, America mowing lawn or some shit as the article states.

“The dapper Nicky Barnes that audiences will see bears little resemblance to the man he says he has become, a grandfather who puts in solid 40-hour weeks at an undisclosed job, who lives in a white neighborhood in an undisclosed state, and who matter-of-factly takes home doggie bags from restaurants.”

It’s not that I feel sorry for him, it’s just sad commentary that Bill Gates can work his genius and hustle in a way that breaks all types of laws which never harms him but so many people end up in a field where a mistake equal death or life.

Maybe if dude had a silicon chip in hands instead of a needle, shit might have turned out a bit differently for him.

And now hip-hop, sadly, is the new conduit for this poison. Peep this article about witness intimidation in NJ. Witness intimidation, aka "Stop Snitching" has gotten so serious that it has affected whether prosecutors even attempt to try single-witness cases.

From the article,

  • Those who do help often do so surreptitiously -- leaving detectives a note in a trash can or asking to be taken away in handcuffs ''so that neighbors will think they're in trouble with the police and not cooperating,'' Mr. DeMattia said.

It's come to a point where trying to get people out of your neighborhood who murder 15-year old honor students makes you the aberrant.

It's been 10 years since Biggie's death and the rap game has only gotten more culturally toxic since, not to mention financially.

If anyone is taking this hip-hop shit too seriously, peep the final words from Mr. Barnes,

  • “Being in prison for the rest of your life,” Mr. Barnes said sharply. “I’d rather be out as a witness than be in there and what they characterize as a stand-up guy.”

    “I’m out,” he said. “They’re in."

Nicky Barnes, for dropping that truth, you are the Snitch of the Week.

Snitch of the Week: 2/25 - 3/3 (Obama Has Slaves!!11)

(Looks so clean...)

I'm going to keep it moving quick with this one and give the Snitch of the Week to William Reitwiesner for digging into Obama's genealogy to uncover the fact that his great-great-great-great grandfather, George Washington Overall, owned some slaves.

It's not that big of a deal honestly, and between the Sharpton DNA snitching and this Obama story, this new DNA fad is getting a bit old, but maybe this will make all the light-skinned black people who have some slave-owner in their bloodline appreciate him a little more.

I hope no one is stupid enough to try and hold this against him, but you never know these days.

William Addams Reitwiesner, for dropping the DNA truth on generations of presidential candidates, you are the Snitch of the week.

Learn Your History: Ye Old Negro Space Program

So what Black History Month just ended, I need to educate y'all on the old Negro Space Program my boy put me onto. How come now one told me about this earlier? It's damn near 5 months old man. C'mon y'all.

Take the time and watch the whole thing.

And peep Cam'ron's new HP commercial,

Like Dick Cheney, You Can't Stop Me

(You call that a suicide bombing?!)

I really need to stop posting once a week, especially after getting some good feedback from that Curtis/Obama post, but shit keeps popping up.
What kept me occupied this past week was my new phone. I was rocking that Sidekick 2 for a minute because I got it for free, but I got tired of the glowing pink lights, sprinkles and teenage attention that shit seems to attract. No one over age 16 should be rocking a Sidekick. I guarantee R. Kelly has about 30.

So I got me a T-Mobile Dash at one of those Indian hustle spots in Midtown and I haven't been this happy since the mid-90's.

This phone is the hotness. If anyone has that T-Mobile hook-up, holla at me about the data plan...

But the realest shit of this all is that I now have a Nintendo in my phone with dozens of games, but most importantly I have Mike Tyson's Punchout on my phone.
Mike Tyson's Punchout.
Do you know how serious that shit is?
This phone has restored my youth. It could only be better if Catherine Zeta Jones came with the phone.

A lot of crazy shit happened in the last week. Here's what caught my eye.

  • Dick Cheney faked a assassination attempt to get back the sympathy of the American people after saying crazy shit all week. I don't buy that bombing. Shit was staged like 50 and Cams beef.
  • Women are getting HPV like iPods. Good thing men can't get it.

  • India is the new Africa. Most Indian women never heard of AIDS and Indian kids are starving worse than Africans.

  • Kelis is attacking undercover prostitutes. WTF?...

  • NYC just banned the N-Word and Virginia just became the first state to apologize for slavery.

    Man, I could blog for a week on this shit alone but since I'm so behind let me just simply state that symbolic government actions are some ol' bullshit.

    Were Blacks in NYC (and Virginia) being held back by the word "nigger" or because no one said sorry to them for slavery?
    I guess the AIDS crisis, unemployment, high dropout rates, witness intimidation and good old inner city crime should all disappear by the end of the week.
    The old black dinosaurs and the whites trying to absolve their guilt who pushed these pieces of legislation through need to wake the fuck up.

    When sites like get 200,000 black teens to sign up I would say the problem runs a little deeper than most people realize.

    Star recently said,

    "During my syndicated radio show on Clear Channel Communications, I once asked a Vice President of programming about playing less music and discussing more news. I was told that my audience was more passionate and rhythmic. Truth is, people who are conditioned to receive cash prizes, free goods and trips will always be attentive and incoherent."

    Even when blacks controlled BET they did nothing to dispel these notions that are held by the corporations that control black culture. Oh well, we could always Chicken Noodle Soup the problems away and go see Norbitt. Almost $100 million worth of y'all did already.

Snitch of the Week: 2/18 - 2/24 (Sharpton and Thurmond)

(Without words, for once.)

Austin Fenner from the Daily News who proved Al Sharpton to be Storm Thurmond's slave is clearly the Snitch of the Week. Who would want to have been Strom Thurmond's slave and then have that news get out. I mean damn.

(Original Daily News article here.)

The funniest shit from this whole story, as always, are the quotes of the naively racist white people involved.

From the article,

  • Some of Thurmond's relatives said the nexus also came as a surprise to them. Doris Strom Costner, a distant cousin who said she knew the late senator all her life, said Sunday she "never heard of such a thing."

    "My momma never would talk to me about nothing like that," Costner said of ancestors who owned slaves. "She only talked to me about good things."

Momma never talked about bad things...
Like how Cousin Strom probably raped the black housekeeper, got her pregnant, and then paid her to shut up and disappear with the kid, while being an ignorant segregationist bigot his whole life?

I wonder what else people in the south don't talk about...

Austin Fenner, for dropping this genealogical bomb, you are the Snitch of the Week.
