THIS IS ONE GUY THAT IS WORTH A POST/TRIBUTE IN MY BLOG. BEING A FATHER OF TWO GIRLS MYSELF, I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT THAT CONNECTED WITH ME LIKE BERNIE MAC DID IN THE BERNIE MAC SHOW.

SURE, I KNOW ABOUT THE KINGS OF COMEDY AND THE “I AINT SCARED OF YOU MOTHA F’ERS”. BUT THE MAC SHOW WAS ALL BROTHA, NO CHASER.

HIS “I HATE YOU M’FERS” LINE IN HOW TO BE A PLAYER IS LEGENDARY TO ME. IT’S EXACTLY HOW I FEEL ABOUT CERTAIN SEGMENTS OF MY PEOPLE SOMETIMES. AND I’M UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT IT. JUST LIKE THE MAC MAN WOULD BE.

BERNIE MAC,

I told you this was where the action was going to be……………..Gary, Indiana School Board officials are arranging for students age 18 years old and older to be bused to the voting location in Crown Point, Indiana, the place where Hillary Clinton downed a shot of Crown Royal on a campaign stop last month in front of the media.

The Mayor of Hammond, Indiana chimes in that “When you corral kids together and ship them to polling places, it’s completely unethical”.

His city hosted Hillary Clinton on March 28, 2008 and is predominantly white.

Gary Indiana has a populous of around 100,000 and most of the citizens, about 90%, are black. This means that the majority of the kids being bused are black.

The Hammond mayor further chimes in, “These kids come from the worse performing schools in the state of Indiana and WE are giving them a day off to go vote for Obama. They can vote on election day like everybody else.”

The Gary School Board trustee chimed in and said, “This is a very adequate and educational field trip to go see the voting process and have time to actually vote. It is a learning process for government economics, which is a mandatory requirement to graduate.”

Washington said Gary Lew Wallace High School students have been bused to Crown Point to vote for three years now. “The entire board thought this was a great idea. We told (Dr. Mary Steele-Agee) to make sure all the high school seniors are able to go out and vote.

“Elections Board Director Sally LaSota and Lake County Elections Supervisor Michelle Fajman said Gary school officials notified them last week all high school students registered to vote would be bused to Crown Point this week.

LaSota said they wouldn’t turn away potential voters of any age. Fajman said, “Students don’t have time before school opens on election day to vote and they have extracurricular activities at the school. I think it’s a good idea.””

This was all taken from here:

Sounds like sour grapes to me. What about you?
