Last week I needed to grab the present cover of "Ebony Magazine" to do a post about how, despite the chatter regarding the damage to the "NAACP Black Image Awards" that the new reality show: "I Love New York Hip Hop Artists Who Move To Atlanta As A NBA Ex Wives To Hang Out With Tiny And T.I. Hustling" do. The point was that even though SOME Black Progressive Journalists are pointing this out - for Ebony/Jet nothing is too low in the entertainment genre - as long as you are not a right-wing politico: their main enemy.
In doing so I saw that Ebony had their entire picture archive for sale on the Internet. The popup of the recently elected Mayor Hatcher of Gary Indiana - THE FIRST BLACK MAYOR of a large city - caught my attention. Since I was sitting in the airport, heading to Chicago - I had to make sure that I did my standard "Mission Accomplished City Tour" of Gary Indiana (as well as the Southside of Chicago).
I have a collection of pictures but the relevant ones to this post are as follows.
GET YOUR "BLACK HISTORY" - IN A DESIGNER FRAME FOR ONLY $249.00
THIS VICARIOUS LIVING WILL MOTIVATE YOU TO TRY AND UNDERSTAND HOW "SUCH A GOOD PERSON" COULD POSSIBLY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MISERY IN THE "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED ZONE" AS YOU STAY "CONGREGATIONALLY UNIFIED" IN THE STRUGGLE AGAINST HIS ENEMIES.
WHEN "THE ENEMY" FLIES AWAY FROM THE MISSION ACCOMPLISHED DISTRICT - YOU MUST FORM A "PROGRESSIVE JOINT VENTURE" THAT YOU CAN BE PROUD OF - IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THE RIGHT-WING ENEMY - WHO WILL NEVER, EVER, NEVER GRACE A PICTURE ON YOUR WALL.
