Say something stupid

There's no end to stupidity of some United States elected officials. Just when you think you have heard all of the stupid things that are going on in the US -- this comes along...

Now it's Black hurricanes....

Well, it appears our African-American friends have found yet something else to be pissed about. A black congresswoman (this would be Sheila Jackson Lee, of Houston ), reportedly complained that the names of hurricanes are all Caucasian sounding names. She would prefer some names that reflect African-American culture such as Chamiqua, Tanisha, Woeisha, Shaquille, and Jamal. I am NOT making this up!

She would also like the weather reports to be broadcast in 'language' that street people can understand because one of the problems that happened in New Orleans was, that black people couldn't understand the seriousness of the situation, due to the racially biased language of the weather report. I guess if the weather person says that the winds are going to blow at 140 MPH, that's too hard to understand.

I can hear it now: A weatherman in New Orleans says...

"Wazzup, mutha-fukkas! Hehr-i-cane Chamiqua be headin' fo' yo ass like Leroy on a rocket! Bitch be a category fo'! So, turn off dem chitlins, grab yo' chirren, leave yo crib, and head fo' de nearest FEMA office fo yo FREE ****.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

So...what Sheila Lee Jackson is saying is that Afro-Americans are unable to understand plain English ?

I can only imagine what the reaction would be if a white Congressperson said this. Downright insulting.

It's a mad world my masters....
