Entertainment Weekly just published their 100 Top TV icons.
The only Blackfolks that made it were
#3: Oprah Winfrey
#4: Bill Cosby
:#36: Diahann Carroll
#43: Flip Wilson
#62: Redd Foxx
#68: Don Cornelius
#83: Isabel Sanford
#89: Robert Guillaume
#97: Cast of 'In Living Color'
Do you think anyone was missing? If so, who (either real or fictional, as Homer Simpson and Kermit were on the list)?
Personally, I don't see how you could have Isabel Sanford on the list and NOT Sherman Hemsley.
I wanted everyone to know that I am a 13 year old cracker who lives comfortably on white privilege and likes seeing the black folk get uppity.
There: didn't that make you feel better? That a black man could never speak the hard truth as I have done? That it had to be a troll? If that gives you relief, believe this comforting lie and go back to watching BET like the product you are. For the true black folk here, I will give you explanation for my prior comments.
In this vital time when the black community is seeking moral foundation, we must not allow ourselves to be eroded by false political correctness. Homosexuals do not share the same cause as the true civil rights movements. Theirs is a choice of sin.
And there is consequences for that sin, for both the sinner and the community that harbors them. If you do not believe, just look what God did to New Orleans. The black community is not immune from the Holy Wrath.
I am through trying to educate you. Consider this post my last comment on the matter, yet I will pray for you.
i gotta say
I haven't been around much cause i started my second job for the holidays. (working 8am to 1am is NOT what's hot in the streets right now) I'm exhausted and sleepwalking and just turned my computer on today.
Mr. Ebonyglow was the funniest thing i've seen all weekend. I think we all enjoyed it, eh? let's wave him a cheery goodbye. As a friendly reminder, blackfolk is no longer a locked community, per member request via a poll. So everytime we get linked elsewhere, get ready for lots of new faces, and trolls. And it goes without saying, this is the internet and nothing is private.
That said, what are everyone's holiday plans?? We don't do family gifts anymore, nor thanksgiving at moms, so I may get some sleep after all! get some chinese takeout with the SO and
curl up with a movie and smores for dessert. Ahhhh useless american holidays.
I had the t.v. on mute cause I'm talking to my mom on the phone; but I looked up and I'm bout sure I just saw a group of Bills fans wearing black face with Afro wigs. I turned the t.v. up real quick to see if the commentators were saying anything about it, and they weren't. Then they just went to commercial.
Did y'all see that?
