Shout Out to Courtland Milloy


Mr. Milloy,

I could not understand why I had an unexpected spike in visits last week, or why one of the most influential¬† and trusted black political consultants in DC would contact me an encourage me to continue writing.¬† I finally figured it out after reading your Wednesday column in last week’s Post. From the bottom of¬†my skeptical heart, I thank you.¬†

It is a tremendous honor to be mentioned and quoted in the Washington Post, the house organ of the Washington power structure.  I am totally flabbergasted.  I come from the Jill Nelson School of sarcasm, have worked for a newspaper, and consider myself just a small voice in the wilderness.  Thanks again for validating my work and boosting my self-esteem.

Senator “Bojangles” Lambert, as a friend calls him, is truly deranged and confused if he thinks his so-called friendship with George Allen is anything more than a get-out-of-jail-free-card for the ignorant confederate.¬† George Allen is a racist, a homophobe, and a damn liar undeserving of the support of anyone in the black community, much less¬†people of the stature of his confederate bandwagon of confused colored folks.¬† Allen has insulted the intelligence of the entire black community with this parade of black minstrels trying to best each other¬†in a buck-dancing contest.

Where were Mayor Holley, Bishop Glenn, Senator Lambert, and¬†Dr. Harvey when Spike Lee was looking for actors in Bamboozled? I am sho Spike coulda used some authentic coons and Stepin’ Fetchit’s.¬† Seen through the prism of four centuries of oppression, these happy darkies invalidate our collective suffering, segregation, and enslavement.¬† Their actions are sensless and analogous to slaves endorsing Jefferson Davis over Abraham Lincoln.

Where is the Drop Squad when you need them?
