Dumb, Dumb and dumber. White Privilege rears it's ugly head again. Was Beyonce's outfit inspired by Michael Jackson (most likely) or the Panthers ( I saw many Black Panthers and never saw one with a sexy outfit on)? What does it matter? What was wrong with the "Black Panther Party For Self Defense"? Are not Black people entitled to defend themselves from physical abuse just like white people? The "so called" founding fathers took up arms against the British for far less cause than African Americans have to revolt today. Remember the founding "so called " fathers were rich slave masters. George Washington was the richest colonist in the 13 colonies (See Howard Zinn, A Peoples History of the United States). This is a controversy only because some dumb, narrow minded, poorly educate white folk think they have the right to tell people of color what symbols we should use and how we should celebrate our history. Unfortunately white supremacy is so ingrained in American culture that most Americans, of all colors fail to see it's most obvious manifestations. May Huey P Newton and Nat Turner's ghost pay these whining whites a visit in their dreams, LOL.
Entertainer Beyonce has been slammed by some police and politicians who say her Super Bowl 50 half-time performance was a salute to the Black Panthers party and was anti-cop. Others say, the performer was paying homage to Michael Jackson, particularly with her outfit. Ty Hunter, Beyonce's style director, weighed in on the outfit during Good Day NY on Thursday.

"On Sunday, at the Corinthian Baptist Church in Des Moines, former President Bill Clinton, looking frail and sounding faint, stumped for his wife, working through her qualifications with a husband’s devotion and a Svengali’s facility.

But one thing he said stood out to me for its clear rhetorical framing.

He attributed much of the anger that’s present in the electorate to anxiety over a changing demographic profile of the country, but then said: We are going to share the future. The only question is: What will be the terms of the sharing?"

Story
Tagline
I am originally from New York City. I was shaped by three major forces. As a child I was part of the voluntary integration of the City’s public schools beginning in the third grade in 1961. I experienced hostile and intolerant teachers as well as students. In high school I was repeatedly victimized by violence. I was the only Black student in my class from the third grade to high school graduation and the only Black student in my high school during my last two years. At Hunter College I encountered the Africana Studies Program which opened my eyes more fully to the oppression of Africans on the mother continent as well as the Americas. In addition I learned of the many great civilizations of Africa that predated Europe by many millennia. Jazz was the final force. It gave me a philosophy of life, an aesthetic through which I could assimilate all of my life experiences and a pedagogy for living my life and teaching others.
Introduction
"The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways—the point however is to change it,"-Karl Marx - "If you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor" -Desmond Tutu - "If you save one life you save all the world" -The Talmud - "Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'" — Isaac Asimov - Practice is the preparation for transcendence. - Cecil Taylor " - Just by virtue of their ideological stance, liberals can tolerate difference, they can tolerate not knowing, wondering ‘it could be this, it could be that.’ They can tolerate someone saying, ‘you’ve got it wrong.’ Liberals are just more open to all of that. It’s less of a problem, it’s less of a concern. They’re much more open to compromise, more open to experience—what would otherwise be threatening to people would not be as threatening because of their ideological disposition." - Scott Eidelman,

I grew up in Staten Island, New York. My first teenage job after delivering my last newspaper was working at the long defunct Zullos Super Market and Deli on Castleton Ave. in West Brighton. I learned from a master Italian Immigrant deli and grocery family to appreciate the joys of Italian Deli food. I left New York City for Georgia in 1984. After spending over twenty-five years in Georgia and over twenty in East Cobb I had lost given up my hope of eating the food, that was comfort food for me, living in Georgia. That would have to wait for my YEARLY, Christmas Season trips back to New York City. Then I discovered Matt's Capozzi's NY Deli. I remember my first time walking into the deli and peering into the cooler and seeing a roast beef that looked rare and juicy, just like at Zullos back in home in Staten Island. I, of course, ordered a roast beef sandwich with meunster cheese with horse radish and a little deli style mustard. It melted in my mouth. I knew then that I had found a home where I could enjoy my favorite comfort food. I was back in a neighborhood, Italian American culinary world. But like any top shelf NY Deli, the cultures of other ethnic groups were there in full bloom fully assimilated as if The Borg had paid a visit. (Star Trek). The German potato salad was prepared just like the Germans in the old upper East Side neighborhood of Yorkville in Manhattan used to prepare it. Pastrami, Rubens and fabulous Jewish rye as well as Kosher pickles were there and even knishes were readily available. The owner Matt Capozzi is a graduate of New York States prestigious Culinary Institute, the training ground of many of the finest Chef's in America. Like all master chefs Matt has mastered the art of making ordinary, everyday food, that we all take for granted, taste extraordinary. As an example you must try the Philly Cheese Steak with Matt's signature jalapeño mayonase sauce. It is truly extraordinary. Matt's recommendations should always be followed. Like a master chef he will advise you on what food is especially good on that particular day, or if the bread, baked fresh daily from a local bakery, is not up to Matt's exacting standards. In closing Matt's staff, particularly his long time "Madam of the cash register Sam" reflect the bosses high standards. Sam, brings a motherly Southern charm and since of humor which adds to the hominess of the environment. It is obvious that there would be a strong coterie of regulars who make this deli a neighborhood social center. Bob, our senior regular, sets the tone with good humor and intelligent wit. There are not many family run businesses left in America as we have been engulfed in the homogeneity of chain restaurant sameness. Do yourself a favor. Stop by Capozzi's NY Deli. You will not regret it.
