"Not White, Not Black, Both Colored"

Re-post NamSouth 2007

I remember in my mother's latter years, she was helped by a lovely lady that may have reminded her of her own mammy, Aunt Emily Johnson, who was her wet nurse beginning in 1907.

Once my mother and this sweet lady were discussing the rampant debates concerning race terminology such as African-American, black, Caucasian, colored, white ad infinitum.

My mother stated she thought this was all just silliness when her friend and companion held her arm next to my mothers and stated: "Miss Ellen D, you're not white and I'm not black, we're both colored."


My sister Anne to the rescue.

"Are you speaking of Annie Mae Johnson ? She always called mother, Miss Ellen D. Annie Mae died last year. She was truly a lady."

1968 Shelby GT500KR Fastback 428 CI, 4-Speed

 S125 1968 Shelby GT500KR Fastback 428 CI, 4-Speed Photo 1

About two thirds of the way through the 1968 model year, Shelby introduced the GT500KR, which of course stood for King of the Road. The cars were equipped with the new 428 Cobra Jet, which utilized the 428 Police Interceptor block from the GT500, but with new Cobra Jet heads featuring larger valves and combustion chambers, plus a nodular crank, stronger connecting rods, dished pistons, high rise aluminum intake manifold, Holley 735cfm double pump carburetor, larger diameter high-flow exhaust system, and functional Ram Air induction routed directly from unique dual functional scoops on a revised fiberglass hood and front fascia.

The KR also received special engine compartment chassis bracing, uprated rear brakes and heavy duty wheel cylinders in addition to adjustable Koni shocks (with staggered rear layout arrangement on 4-speed equipped cars) for the suspension, which was already upgraded for 1968 with variable rate springs, and larger front sway bar.

And the KR was, indeed, an extremely competent package, out-handling all but purest sports cars, delivering want everyone knew to be well in excess of 400hp (even though it was comically rated at 335hp/440lb-ft for insurance purposes), and with an aggressive presence and brash red Cobra Jet badges that led the road test editors at Car Life magazine to observe, "The car is so impressive, so intimidating to challengers, that there are no challengers. The KR breeds confidence bordering on arrogance."

MSNBC: All Apologies, All The Time

“Barack Obama is a clown” and the “biggest liar I know”


“We have a man in the White House who doesn’t have a clue,” said the billionaire real estate developer, who toyed with vying for the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination.

Trump also noted it appears that Obama does not enjoy being president.

“It seems to me that Obama can’t wait to get out of the White House so he can go play golf. He doesn’t have the right instincts to be president. He isn’t tenacious and he isn’t tough,” he said.

Is Trump, then, the man with the instincts and tenacity needed to succeed in the Oval Office?

Speak for yourself.  I've sure got #1 down pat. :)

Reader Charlie sent me the latest blog post from entitled 11 Skills Your Great-Grandparents Had That You Don’t.

It starts by saying, "Our parents and grandparents may shake their heads every time we grab our smart phones to get turn-by-turn directions or calculate the tip. But when it comes to life skills, our great-grandparents have us all beat. Here are some skills our great-grandparents had 90 years ago that most of us don’t."

A Long Island police lieutenant has been awarded $1.35 million in his racial discrimination lawsuit against the village of Freeport.

Lt. Christopher Barrella, who is white, had accused the village of awarding the police chief’s job to a Hispanic officer with few qualifications and a lower test score.

Following the federal jury’s decision Wednesday, Barrella described the process as trying but said he always had faith in the jury system.

As Syrians line up here at their embassy on a second day to vote for the next Syrian president, a Virginia state lawmaker is praising Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for “rescuing” Christians in his country and fighting jihadists affiliated with al-Qaida.

“I write to thank the Syrian Arab Army for its heroic rescue of Christians in the Qalamoun Mountain Range,” Virginia state Sen. Richard Black, R-Loudon, wrote in a letter to Assad. “I am especially grateful for the spectacular victory in Yabroud.”

Black’s two-page letter was posted on Assad’s official Facebook page.

Black is a former military lawyer with a background in Middle East matter.

 "The child’s parents have contacted the GBI but were told no further investigation was needed."
 A 19-month-old toddler was critically injured after a police flash bang was tossed into his bed during a police raid at a Habersham County home on Wednesday.

“It’s my baby. He’s my only baby. He didn’t deserve any of this,” said Alecia Phonesavanh, the mother of the child.

“It landed in his playpen and exploded right in his face,” said Phonesavanh.

The child is now being treated at Grady hospital and has a 50 percent chance of survival.

“He’s in the burn unit. We got to see him and his whole face is ripped open. He has a big cut on his chest,” said Phonesavanh. “He’s only 19 months old, he didn’t do anything.”
