An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Well, it appears our African-American friends have found yet something else to be pissed about. A black congresswoman (Sheila Jackson Lee) reportedly complained that the names of hurricanes are all Caucasian sounding names. She would prefer some names that reflect African-American culture (such as: Chamiqua, Tanisha, Woeisha, Shaqueal, and Jamal).
She would also like the weather reports to be broadcast in language that street people can understand because one of the problems in New Orleans is that regular folks couldn’t understand the seriousness of the situation due to the racially biased language of the weather report.
I can hear it now: A weatherman in Houston reports:
“Wazzup, mutha-fukkas! Hehr-i-cane Chamiqua be headin’ fo’ yo ass like Leroy on a crotch rocket! Bitch be a category fo’! So grab yo’ chirren, yo’ Ho, be leavin yo crib, and head fo’ da nearest guv’ment office fo yo FREE shit!”
