Funny Things Friday: Yo, Is This Racist?

My friends are the funniest. They are way funnier than your friends, unless I am one of your friends… then they are not funnier then that friend.

Because my friends are so funny they are always telling me about hilarious things they read, do, and say. Here is a great example:

Yo, Is This Racist is a hilarious site we should all be reading. Go have a funny.

Happy Friday!


  1. There you go again! I think I will start a blog called “Are You Whitey-Tighty.” What do you think?


    1. Haha! That might work… the reality is though, that I (as a Black woman) live in a world where race is always a subject and always a factor. So while to others it might seem that I am harping on something that is removed from them- I am actually just commenting on my everyday experiences. 😉

Lately Arkansas State Representative Jon Hubbard has been in the news because of his book. Hubbard’s book was totally off my radar until he made headlines on Huffington Post concerning the condition of African Americans and slavery.  Hubbard, a Republican from Jonesboro, makes some very interesting assertions in his book.

He pontificates that African-Americans/Blacks do not contribute to our communities and therefore drain society. He also wraps his heinous statements up with a lovely statement that Blacks had it much better in slavery than we ever would have had in Africa…and therefore we should embrace this blessing in disguise that God has provided us.
