Hi kids. Just a brief note before I head out to see Happy Rhodes (and if you're in Chi and on the fence about attending, long-time fan and Ecto member Vickie Mapes has some samples available).
Stating the obvious, but sometimes these things need to be said:
- Yr. humble webmaster is, when all's said and done, a Negro from the south side of Chicago, a couple generations removed from sharecroppers, and just slightly more from slaves. Often, he expresses himself in a manner consistent with these origins. This sort of language may be unsuitable for younger, more sensitive readers and the chronically melanin-impaired.
This is not my fucking problem.
- Yr. humble webmaster also, as the name implies, pays for the hosting, domain name and bandwidth for this site, and as such will write about whatever he fucking well pleases, when he pleases, in whatever manner he pleases. If this bothers you, again, this is not my fucking problem, and you can leave at any time. Immediately would be best.
- Yr. humble webmaster is, in most cases, older than you, blacker than you, and has been through shit that would have left you having a closed-casket service. If he needs a lecture from anyone on any topic, he'll ask.
Don't hold your breath waiting.
Anyone having problems with any of the preceeding is heartily encouraged to explain, in email, where you feel I've gone wrong. Or you can post a polite comment to that effect, and there's the off chance I won't just delete it on G.P.
Because you know, the name of this place is Uppity-Negro.com. Maybe it's about time I started earning that title.
Management does not apologize for the inconvenience. See above.
