Saturday Night Card Game (Jew Hear The One About The Black Ho?)
This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry over this one.
The NAACP is upset because a Hallmark talking graduation card uses the term “black ho” in it, as in black whore.
Except that it doesn’t, it uses the term “black hole,” as in space, and the universe, and science fiction. They even made a movie about it, so it must exist:
Now back to Planet Earth, which is far less rational than outer space. Put your ear up to the speaker, and listen really carefully to the Hallmark card, so that you too can prove that, just like the NAACP, you have nothing better to do (via IgnorantMe! and reader Nathan):
Question: Would it have made a difference if “black hole” were pronounced more clearly? I doubt it:
A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre this afternoon.
County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.
Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections “has become a black hole” because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.
Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud “Excuse me!” He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a “white hole.”
Perhaps I’m being too harsh on the NAACP. After all, I distinctly remember, growing up, the clearly racist “Secret Asian Man” theme song. Because of the controversy the title was changed to “Secret Agent Man,” but Johnny Rivers always seemed to sing “Asian” and no one noticed:
And of course, who is more paranoid than my People, who long ago convinced ourselves that your People speak in code:
In finding material for the Saturday Night Card Game series, I sometimes feel like Woody Allen in this clip:

Here in Australia we have a brand of cheese called Coon. We had a series of ads where people were lined up for a photograph and when told to say "cheese" they all said "coon".
On my first trip to the USA which was in 1984-85, I nearly made the mistake of imitating the ad… it seems that would have been a very bad thing if overheard by members of a certain community….
This is an experience of language differences and nothing at all to do with any black community…..
Clearly the NAACP has become irrelevant and so must create controversy where none exists to justify their continued existence. Do they not see the subliminal message being sent when they publicly make a stance against a card that references a black hole in context with the theme of the card which is space? The subliminal message is "We lack the intelligence to put the term black hole in context. We never took science courses and so do not understand that the term black hole is an accepted term for a phenomenon to be found in space. Therefor, we will rail against this term because it is racist."
Further, I believe the term ho as a derogatory and demeaning term for a woman was coined by black people. It is kept alive as common verbage in part by black people. Perhaps, the NAACP should focus their efforts on educating black people not to use these terms and ask rap groups not to use such terms because it demeans women and specifically black women.
I live in the South. Here, the NAACP speeks for the black man. Anything they say, the black population believes with vigor. I don't mean to seem racist, but the fact is that in our community, blacks take their direction from only a handfull of source. First is their preacher, then the NAACP, and finally a select group of national personalities (Jesse Jackson). I have had friendships with several blacks who have varied in education level from high school to professional degree. It is suprising that almost all fit into the steriotype I have described. Few other groups are influenced by such an organization. It is strange that many of the individuals I knew clearly know the NAACP is irrelevant and that their claims are preposterous, yet they still support the claimed issue and interpretation. When I ask them about this and point out the logic of a different view, they still stand by the NAACP and will justify the stance as "a black thing". In many ways they thus have a dual personality. Both my wife and I have seen blacks carrying on a conversation in getto language, when they approach a group of whites, they completely chang language to very proper English and their whole manner changes. This makes for a very confusing set of circumstances for whites. Most foreigner (Indians) are completely mistified by the process and the dual communities (the division is not white induced). Thus when I make a statement as I did, it is from a perspective that I don't think you can understand.
What's next? Banning the Beverly Hillbillies because their theme song mentions "black gold"? That's racist!
