Our absurd society

Doug Powers writes at Michelle Malkin’s site:

Let me get this straight — the William Morris Agency has reportedly dropped Mel Gibson as a client because he used the “N-word” in an unhinged privately recorded rant, but William Morris continues to represent the likes of P. Diddy, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, 50 Cent, and many more, who broadcast the same awful word to millions — daily, unabashedly and continually?

Gotta love Hollywood.

Take up a career in Hip-Hop, Mel — the WMA will bring you back on board in a heartbeat.

Again, Gibson said any number of extremely offensive things in his surreptitiously recorded private phone conversation with his former girl friend, including telling her that with the way she dressed she deserved to be gang raped. But the thing that got him in trouble, the thing that has all the tongues wagging, the thing that has scandalized the world, the thing that has people saying his movie career is over, was his single use of the word “niggers.” Some of the news stories even said that Gibson punched his ex-mistress in the mouth and broke her two front upper teeth. Yet in every story in which that charge has appeared, it is way down in the article, as a distant afterthought compared to the only news that really matters—his use of the “N” word. Is any further proof needed that the worst crime in liberal society—worse than disgusting invective, worse than wishing for a woman to be gang-raped, worse than punching a woman in the mouth and knocking her teeth out—is for a white person to say anything discriminatory about black people?

We used to be a nation under God. Now we’re a nation under blacks.

To be more precise, we are a nation under the twin gods of black sacredness and white guilt—gods which we ourselves have created.

It’s a small point but Mary J. Blige is not a rapper whose “music” consists of long strings of profanity and n-word laden rap.

She does not deserve to be lumped in with the talentless hacks P-Diddy, 50-Cent, Snoop Dog, et al.

She is a modern R&B singer with a beautiful voice who has written many great songs, some of which reflect her struggle to escape her background. I have several of her CDs and I don’t recall hearing the n-work on any of them.

Here is a nice video of her singing the song “One” with U2.
