When I opened up my email just a few minutes ago, I was surprised to find a nice email from New Hampshire DJ extraordinaire herself, Sarah Sullivan of WBYY – 98.7 The Bay and the kick-ass Sunday morning 10 am – 12 noon radio show, Brunch By The Bay.

Here it is:

Hey Tina!
I read your blog. Thank you for the correction! I was sure Rapture came out in 1979, but I was El-wrong-o! My apologies! This coming Sunday, I’ll make the correction. It will give me a good excuse to play the Sugar Hill Gang!
Feel free to make suggestions for the show. I could use help from a fellow music lover! I always have my ears open for great music.
All the best!

Sarah Sullivan, 98.7 The Bay, Garrison City Broadcasting, The Sugar Hill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Blondie & Rap Songs you guys totally rock!

I sure as hell hope that I don’t start a race war with this one but I gotta’ keep it real and tell Sarah Sullivan, a disc jockey on New Hampshire’s 98.7 The Bay Radio Station that “Rapture” by Blondie is not the first rap song.

At approximately 11:00 am this morning on her popular radio show, Brunch By The Bay, Sarah Sullivan introduced the song “Rapture” by Blondie as “The First Rap Song” and with that opened up a big-ass can of racial worms! So, here we go!

“Rapture” by Blondie was the first rap-influenced song to reach number one on the Billboard Music Charts in early 1981.

But Rapper Kurtis Blow’s influencial rap song, “The Breaks” hit the Billboard Charts much earlier in 1980 peaking at number 87.

While the Sugar Hill Gang’s rap song, “Rappers Delight” hit the Top 40 on the Billboard Music Charts on January 5, 1980 making it the first rap song to ever hit the music charts.

And way, way, way before even these history making boys and girl, other rappers in the late 1970’s in places ranging from New York to California had already created popular rap songs that were played and sold around their neighborhoods only. So rap music was out and about way way way before Blondie’s hit rap-influenced song, “Rapture” ever came out.

Blondie’s place in rap history is that they brought rap to the white masses and diversified it.

And in this black girl’s opinion, they did a damn good job because I absolutely love the song!

So Sarah Sullivan of 98.7 The Bay & The Bay Radio Station, please get your facts straight before you broadcast them to the New Hampshire masses so you can avoid blog posts like this from pissed off rap fans like me.

P.S.    Sarah, even though I feel that your statement on the air was false this morning, I still love your show! Keep up the good work  Sarah, Garrison City Broadcasting & Robert Demers!  But be sure to precheck your facts!

Whether he is a cold-blooded murderer or simply a man who was justifiably protecting himself from harm or whether he is a die-hard racist or a man who simply made a negative remark without thinking because let’s face it, it does happen to all of us at one time or another, even if George Zimmerman doesn’t get charged with second degree murder or a hate crime or a civil lawsuit or any other charge that people can think of to throw at him to avoid a race riot, basically this man’s life is over.

And to me that’s sad.

People let’s face it, even though in Mr. Zimmerman’s case there is compelling evidence to suggest that he was indeed acting in self-defense (although in Mr. Martin’s defense I do believe that Mr. Zimmerman did instigate the scuffle that broke out between them) his life is still over in America and especially in  Black America.  (Because to most of Black America he will always be the ultimate symbol of injustice for blacks in the American legal system.)

For instance, if Mr. Zimmerman is ever convicted of one of the crimes that he will eventually be accused of and eventually goes to jail, he’ll have to deal with the black inmates of that prison either wanting to kill him or beat the shit out of him on a regular basis for what he did to Trayvon.


If Mr. Zimmerman is never charged with any crime related to the Trayvon Martin case he’ll still have to deal with the many angry black people all across America who think he got away with murder and alot of people in this case are not willing to let this issue go so Mr. Zimmerman’s only options in this case is to either go into hiding, move out of the country or get extensive plastic surgery which totally sucks!

It is unfortunately a no-win situation for this man all around.

So people always remember that on February 26th 2012, not only did a 17 year old black boy’s life end but a 28 year old white/hispanic man’s life ended as well.

And that’s a damn shame for both of them being so young and all.

As a black person myself one of the the things that really pisses me off is when an advocate in favor of making an illegal Hispanic immigrant’s status legal use the argument, “Hispanics will do jobs that even Blacks won’t do.”

Generally people the jobs that these advocates are referring to are menial labor/extremely low paying jobs.

My response to this is “Excuse me, but I thought that the United States of America was a free country where one of the luxuries is that a person regardless of race has the right to choose whatever job that they want.” And I believe that if a Black person doesn’t want to do that job then that’s their God given American right!

People, what I truly admire about these crafty advocate bastards is the way that they create a big-ass smoke screen by diverting a person’s attention away from the true issue and that issue being that these Hispanics have entered the USA illegally and not only aren’t supposed to be here but haven’t earned the right to be here either! To put it simply, they are breaking the law! And in my opinion they sure as hell shouldn’t be rewarded for it, in other words, granted American citizenship just because they will do jobs that even Blacks won’t do. That’s nothing but a copout and a failure to take responsibility for their illegal actions and that ain’t right!

Incidentally at this time, I would like to send a great big ol’ shout out to all of those kick-ass immigrants, white, black, brown, red, yellow, etc. from all over the world who have filled out a shitload of paperwork and given themselves completely over to answering many questions and being constantly investigated just so that they could enter this fine country of ours legally. Hey kick-ass immigrants, you have made our dear lady of liberty damn proud! God bless you new fangled Americans and God bless America!

Anyhoo getting back to the subject. Regarding these so-called jobs that Hispanics will do, in terms of employment, you have two kinds of employers when dealing with this issue. First, those employers who knowingly hire illegal Hispanic immigrants and second, those employers that are totally unaware of an illegal Hispanic immigrant’s legal status.

In these terms, to me it’s simple really. If you are an employer who knowingly hires an illegal Hispanic immigrant then you are just as guilty as they are (You’re breaking the law, idiot!) and you should be punished accordingly right along with them. And if you are an employer who accidentally hires an illegal Hispanic immigrant then you need to work with the INS or your local police department to rectify this situation.

People, I am not a racist but a realist. I know that everything in life is not black and white or in this case, black and brown. I know that there are alot of innocent illegal Hispanic immigrants who may be here illegally for several good reasons such as a safety issue like they will be killed if they return to Cuba or Mexico for standing up for a cause that might be illegal in their country or the illegal Hispanic immigrant is very poor and only enters the United States to make a better life for their child.

Part of me really sympathizes with them on some of these situations but however sad that these situations are these illegal immigrants are still breaking the law. And since these illegal immigrants want to be legal citizens of America so bad that they are willing to break the law they have to take all of America including their justice system. And being here in America illegally is a crime. A crime that has consequences and repercussions.

Furthermore I know that alot of these advocates will say places like Las Vegas’ economy will shut down if illegal Hispanic immigrants are deported but I laugh at these imbeciles because deep down in my heart I truly believe that America will take a major hit but like the beautiful summer sun she will rise no matter what! America is a powerhouse, an unstoppable force that you can’t stop from overcoming. And I truly believe that it can survive the deportation of millions of illegal Hispanic immigrants.

P.S. Look at our current economy, which totally sucks, with all these illegal Hispanic immigrants and tell me if it is truly better now with all of them still here.

Number 10: If you are a White person and don’t vote for him, basically you are a racist.

Number 9: If you are a Hispanic person and don’t vote for him, basically you are a racist.

Number 8: If you are a Asian person and don’t vote for him, basically you are a racist.

Number 7: If you are a race, nationality or creed other than the above and don’t vote for him basically you are a racist.

Number 6: If you are a Black person and don’t vote for him, you are not only a traitor but you should be kicked out of the Black race just like Michael Jackson.

Number 5: If you are not a Black person and use the phrase, “That’s the pot calling the kettle black”, basically you are a racist.

Number 4: If he catches you buying a can of green olives at the supermarket basically you are a racist because you didn’t do the Reverend Jeremiah “Wright” thing and buy the black olives.

Number 3: If he sees you eating white, brown, red and yellow jelly beans and not eating the black jelly beans basically you are a racist.

Number 2: If you make any kind of racial slur (i.e. the “n” word or nappy-headed ho) and truly regret your hateful words afterward, be prepared to appear on his radio show for a severe scolding only to be told that you are a racist who will never be forgiven which is the perfect message a man of the cloth should be sending out. (Hey Don Imus, I can feel your pain!)

Number 1: Bouffant’s in your face twenty-four hours a day until November 2012! No! No! No! Say it isn’t so! (I’m sorry but a Black
Man wearing a bouffant hairdo is just plain wrong at least from this Black Woman who just wrote this blog post point of view!)
