It’s time. This is President Barack Obama’s last State of the Union Address. According to the White House, not only will this be the shortest SOTU address from President Obama, but it will also be the shortest address in 25 years-and that’s probably because, as most of you know, President Obama has insufficient f*cks to give.
Who’s up for some trading? I am! Over the last year, a lot has happened. And the truth is, a lot of these unfortunate (AND fortunate) events have brought out a lot of people’s true colors. Whether it be your Facebook friends, your real life friends, or your favorite celebrities, thanks to social media, we have access to EVERYBODY’S thoughts on a regular basis…and sometimes, that can be really annoying.
One thing that’s annoyed me to no end is seeing some of my favorite Black celebrities make complete and utter fools out of themselves, turning their backs on the Black community, making comments on national TV and via Twitter that they really should reconsider. So I’ve decided that there are 6 Black people that I’d like to trade in exchange for 6 White folk. Here’s who I’ve chosen:
Last week, we got the terrible news that Vice President Joe Biden’s son had lost his battle with brain cancer. The 46 year old military veteran left behind his wife and two children. Over the weekend, President Obama delivered a teary-eyed eulogy at the funeral. Afterwards, hugging and kissing the VP, it was clear just how much Beau Biden had affected those who knew and loved him.
Everybody loves Uncle Joe Biden. He’s the quintessential wing man. He’s the kinda guy you can always count on. Unfortunately, Biden is the one who needs a shoulder to lean on after this weekend. His son, Beau Biden lost his battle with brain cancer on Saturday, at the age of 46 after his cancer returned this Spring.
