Conservative Memes Comparing Phil Robertson’s Bigotry with Miley Cyrus’s Twerking

December 22, 2013

Recently, Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson made comments many find offensive. For those of you unfamiliar with Duck Dynasty, it’s a reality show featuring a family who gained riches from creating products for duck hunters. Based in West Monroe, Louisiana, the viewers see a family were the males sport long beards.

In a recent GQ interview, the interviewer asked Phil Robertson what does he consider sinful.

Phil answered this, “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”

Also, these are his views on black people before civil rights: “I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

Views like this earned Phil a suspension from A&E, the cable network broadcasting Duck Dynasty.

I’m sure many readers were already aware of the story I just described. Yet, here’s something amusing I later saw on Facebook. Conservatives are now posting memes comparing Phil Robertson’s comments to Miley Cyrus’s twerking. I guess twerking is just as harmful as a guy aiming obvious bigotry towards other people. If one can’t spot the bigotry in Phil’s words, you are a goddamned idiot who probably still believes in George Dubya Bush’s weapons of mass destruction. Just like a female friend pointed out, Miley Cyrus did not go around using the bible to condemn other people. Yet, here are the memes comparing Phil Robertson’s views with Miley Cyrus’s twerking.

A Funny Harlem Shake Photo Meme

March 18, 2013

For those of you who have been living under a rock, you can go to Wikipedia and find out what the Harlem Shake is.

For the rest of us, I’ll show you the funny Facebook meme uploaded by The Dungeon Family, a crew who produced the early OutKast hits.

Ten Songs White People Love To Hear

March 15, 2013

First of all, don’t take me too seriously about this.  Yet, I couldn’t help but notice this in my search engine section.  Right under the search for Meagan Good’s booty, someone searched for songs to play for white people in a bar.

song to play for white people

Being a DJ that plays for mixed crowds, I guess I would know what white people like.

In no real particular order, I shall offer ten songs white people love to hear.

1. Dancing Queen by ABBA:  White womenz of all generations love this song.

2. We Will Rock You by Queen: You’ll hear the whole bar stomp-stomp-slap to this.

3. Sweet Caroline by Neal Diamond:  Nobody but the white folks ask for this song. As some white people deny liking it, they will more than likely know the lyrics and sing to it anyway.

4. Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leppard: Usually, any 80’s hair metal band would do.  Yet, this tops the lists of said genre when it comes to getting drunk white folks to sing.

5. The Time Warp by The Original Rocky Horror Picture Show Cast:  Out of every group of white folks, someone is liable to be a huge fan of cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

6. Hey Jude by The Beatles:  Out of all Beatle songs, this one definitely gets white people going.

7. Piano Man by Billy Joel: You’ll notice a theme with some of these songs.  White folks love sing-a-longs.  Well, here’s another one.

8.  Friends in Low Places by Garth Brooks: Don’t let the yuppies bullshit you.  Many white folks love this county music gem.

9. Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-A-Lot:  I can hear you now.  “Isn’t that a rap song?”  What are you trying to say?  Are you trying to say white people don’t like rap music?  Well, let me tell you.  More white people ask for this song more than they would any Eminem rap song.

10. Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey: This is the granddaddy of them all.  White people will demand you play this song.

Like I said earlier, don’t take this list too seriously.  Yet, it does get results.

For white folks who are offended by this list, I have this to say.  Good!  Now, you know how it feels to be the butt of a nasty racist joke.

Comments and suggestions are welcomed.

Get Off My Back!!! White People Requested The Song!!!

October 7, 2011

Last Sunday, I played another DJ gig at The Peacock Room.

“You wanna perform in the back?” Joe asked me.

Joe is usually Sunday night’s head bartender.

If I chose the bar counter, I would be sitting next to the creature in the following pic.

Every October, the Peacock Room displays monsters and other scary things.

I chose the performance room.  Not because of the monsters, but because I wanted to experience the difference between bar counter DJing versus DJing in the back room.

As usual for Peacock’s Sunday nights, not many people showed.  Still, good times happened.

What are these two eyeballing, you ask?

They’re looking at the videos playing behind me.

Despite the good times, some things did turn me off.  One person complained about another person’s music request.

Seeing that the complainer was white, I decided to be a dick.

“White people picked it,” I said.

“I wanna hear music where I can shake my white ass,” the complainer said.

Folks have to realize the night is for everyone, not one particular person or group.

Women dancing used to motivate my choices.  Not anymore.  Well, not as much.  Now, I prefer picking songs that get most women dancing versus songs that only gets one woman dancing.

I realize picky women are just out for attention anyway.   First, I’m already giving them too much attention by listening to their complaints and wants.   Second, I’m going out of my way finding that right song or songs that will make them dance.   Third, when they dance, it’s obvious they want dudes watching them…including me.  All three things brings picky women the attention they crave.  And that’s why they annoy my ass.

As for another annoying thing, one of my friends started text messaging me song requests, a new experience for me.   I played one request and ignored the others.

Still, good times happened.

Tonight, I go back to the Peacock Room, my first time DJing a Friday night in Orlando.   Wish me luck.

The Top Ten Most Overrated White Musicians

May 9, 2011

Don’t get me wrong. It isn’t as if I think these artists suck. Most on this list I find to be very talented.

Also, if anyone requests their music during one of my deejay gigs, I’ll be more than happy to play it.

Yet, I am getting sick and tired of mainstream media always telling everyone how great these people are. Why do white musicians who perform “black music” receive more press than the folks who created it? When the all white Beastie Boys’ Licensed To Ill reached number one on the album charts, people made a big deal about it being the first rap album to do so. Yet, few folks wanted to admit The Beastie Boys’ skin color may have contributed to it.

Sometimes, it don’t even have to be about white musicians performing “black music”. Some white musicians are just plain over hyped.

So here I go. If this list offends, it wasn’t intended that way.

10. Aerosmith

If it wasn’t for Run-DMC covering one of their songs, you wouldn’t be seeing lead singer Steven Tyler on American Idol. Before Run-DMC remade “Walk This Way”, Aerosmith was considered has-beens. Run-DMC’s version pushed Aerosmith back into the public spotlight. Yet, some Aerosmith fans seem to ignore that important fact.

9. Eric Clapton

I don’t get it. Why are folks labeling him one of the best blues guitarists ever? What makes him stand out among B.B. King and Muddy Waters? A great guitarist Clapton may be, but a great BLUES guitarist?

8. Britney Spears

Since day one, never were there any intentions on presenting Britney as a true artist. All she had to do was shake her titties and sing.

7. Lady Gaga

When shock artist Marlyn Manson ripped from Alice Cooper, there was at least some originality to it. When I see Lady Gaga, I see a too obvious and unoriginal rip from Madonna.

6. George Michael

This pertains to an incident in the late eighties. The American Music Awards possessed the audacity to award George Michael the Favorite Soul/ R&B Male Artist. This over Michael Jackson and Bobby Brown, two dudes who created way more soulful albums than George Michael. And it wasn’t because they were black either.

5.Kurt Cobain

After Nirvana’s “Smells Like Team Spirit” became a hit, folks labeled front-man Kurt Cobain the voice of his generation. At this time, I was a few years younger than Kurt. Even though I liked the song, I resented folks saying this white man spoke for me. Public Enemy spoke more for me than Kurt ever did. After Kurt committed suicide, he instantly became more important than he should have been. Well, at least, white people aren’t going around saying he faked his death and moved to Paris.

4. Jim Morrison

For awhile, white people who grew up in the sixties kept going on and on about the man. Some still do. One time, I bought a book of Jim Morrison’s poetry. That shit sucked. It’s a bunch of ramblings that don’t make sense. I’ll take Charles Bukowski’s poetry over Jim Morrison’s.

3. Eminem

Back in the day, black rappers faced constant criticism for talking about bitches. Eminem raps about bitches and folks crown him an important poet. What’s artistically different about a black guy rapping about slapping hoes versus a white guy rapping about killing his baby’s mama? Yet, the baby mama killer is considered the true artist.

2. The Rolling Stones

These dudes borrowed heavily from American blues music. They even named themselves after a Muddy Water’s song. Yet, forgetting that the blues already existed in the States, white Americans sucked these British guys’ dicks and proclaimed them one of the best bands in the world.

1 Elvis Presley

There was nothing original about this man. He just happened to be a white man performing music created by black artists. Just like with Emimen, many white people were more comfortable with that versus appreciating the folks who created the music. How the hell do you name a Caucasian the king of music created by black people? I’ve been saying this for nearly twenty years, and I’ll say it again. Fuck Elvis.

UPDATE: After some Internet chatting, I’ve had second thoughts about Eric Clapton.  Several folks suggested I put Justin Timberlake on the list.  Seeing that Mr. Timberlake is another overrated white artist who sings black, it makes sense.  Okay, Justin Timberlake takes Eric Clapton’s place.

As for Lady Gaga, a white female friend pointed out she borrowed her fashion from Grace Jones.  Borrowing from a black woman makes Lady Gaga stay on the list.
