  1. Reblogged this on Big Blue Dot Y'all and commented:

    • Ametia says:

      Thank you. And might I add that MHP nailed it when she said, it wasn’t about black folks standing taller and taking more pride in themselves when PBO got elected, it was de white folks who needed to feel good about themselves.

  2. Ametia says:

    and yes, Rikyrah. How dare that BLACK WOMAN call me out.

  3. Ametia says:

    that’s not what my piece was about! Well see, Chait, you get to tell us what it’s all about, aftr we read it and take your ass to the woodshed for the “false equivalency” BS.

  4. Ametia says:

    Chait came off as a defensive, WHINY TITTY BABY. And did y’all see the steam coming out of his ears after MHP’s setup?

    • rikyrah says:

      how dare THAT WOMAN call me out?

      • Ametia says:

        OK! Did you see both videos, Rikyrah? I was waiting to post them both together

        Chait’s chicken, or did he and Ta Nehisi both decide they didn’t want a face-face on the MHP Show? Doubt it. Chait didn’t even come on the set with MHP. He’s a white privileged CHICKENSHIT.

        MHP handed his ass to him from jump, and he got DEFENSIVE and dug deeper, trying to convey to us black folks that what we read wasn’t what he intended in his false equivalency, blatant denial of the most RABID racist attacks on PBO from the Republican Party and their base.

        NO MENTION OF TRUMP, THE BIRTHER. Now you tell me who of the prior 43 POTUS’ ever got asked for their BIRTH CERTIFICATE? WHO?!
