This morning President Obama gave a very passionate and heart felt speech about the TERRIBLE shootings at Newtown where little kids were shot down like in a western movie by a crazy man. You can tell the President meant business this morning.
He said “Shame on you” if you cannot support gun control here in America. I got my remote and before I changed the channel I knew in my mind the Fox News would not be showing the President’s speech. Guess what readers? CNN was broadcasting the President’s speech, MSNBC was broadcasting the President’s speech, BUT FOX NEWS DID NOT BROADCAST THE PRESIDENT’S VERY IMPORTANT SPEECH! WHAT???
Instead a Fox News anchor was talking about the President’s so called falling ratings. THIS IS A FLAT OUT OUTRAGE ON THE PART OF FOX NEWS!! It again shows that Fox News led by the bigot Sean Hannity is in the bed with the Republican Party/Tea Party etc.
How can MSNBC and CNN realize the importance of the President’s emotional speech and the racist Fox News did not? THIS IS TERRIBLE readers. It proves for sure that Fox News is doing EVERYTHING TO MAKE THE PRESIDENT LOOK BAD. The President was giving a speech about kid’s getting killed at a school that were 6 or 7 years old! The President was giving a speech on gun violence EVERYWHERE in America and Fox News was blasting the President’s “falling ratings”!!! TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE!!
Fox News ratings have been falling big time. Yes there still ahead of MSNBC and CNN. But they are falling. You want to know why they are falling readers? Because of the STUPID actions like they did this morning by not broadcasting the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IMPORTANT SPEECH. I wonder if this was President Romney if Fox News would have done the same? Gordon Curvey

I watched the Olympics in great joy as little Gabby Douglas put herself for ever on the sports map as she let everyone know how great she is in gymnastics and she did it with a great smile and personality. It brought tears to my eyes seeing this 16 year old African American girl do such great things. I am sure some of you reading this feel the same way I do.
But then NBC took the happiness away from me. Right after NBC’s coverage of Gappy’s great performance, they quickly went to a commercial that featured a monkey on gymnastics rings. I said to myself “I know I am not seeing things” I thought to myself if others are as angry and bothered by this as I am.
How can NBC be so STUPID readers? Did they even think that this was wrong and that folks in the African American community will be upset with NBC by them showing a monkey on gymnastics rings? To make matters worse, NBC does not think it is a problem and they say it was not intentional on there part.
All I can say is NBC is guilty of being stupid. Pure and simple. For them to play that commercial after Gabby’s win was just plain stupid. But truth be told I have a problem with any commercial that features a monkey or a gorilla. To me it saying a monkey or a gorilla is like a African American.
Another thing I am bothered by is this. When you see young Gabby in London doing what she does best, her mom Natalie Hawkins is always ther. Here is a question. Where is Gabby’s father? Is he anywhere in her live? To many times young African Americans are shown with just their mom and their dad is nowhere around. I would like to know where is Gabby’s father. Gabby and her mom is making a apperence on CNN’s Piers Morgan. I wish Gabby’s father was on Morgan’s program too.
I am not hear trying to knock African American moms. I am saying this readers. Stats show that 7 out of 10 African American kids are growing up without a dad in the household. It is a HUGE problem. A huge problem folks. In my opinion a black child needs BOTH parents in the houshold. So a child will know their daddy. Have a male image at home. Here that “deep” voice of their dad.
I hope Gabby has a relationship with her dad like for instance Venus and Serena Williams have a relationship with there dad. When you see a tennis event with Venus and Serena you will see their mom AND THEIR DAD and they are divorced. But they show up. I hope it happens for Gappy. Gordon Curvey

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
I CANNOT believe what so called “shock jock” Howard Stern said about Oscar nominee actress Gabourey Sidibe over the air about her size!
Please listen to his STUPID and yes RACIST comments about Ms. Sidibe by clicking the link above. I am real bothered by his comments. And I am bothered by his sidekick Robin saying what she said too! The question is WHY DID HOWARD MAKE THESE COMMENTS AND WHY IS THIS NOT BIGGER THAN WHAT IT IS?
First of all Gab will find work again!!! She is looking over new roles right now Howard!!! And not only that I am sure OPRAH AND SPIKE AND DENZEL AND TYLER PERRY and others will make sure she will have a job acting in a movie!!! What a STUPID thing to say that Gabourey will not find another acting job!!!
It hurts me as African American that Howard would say that about her and hurts me even more that Gab’s African American sista would also make negative comments about Sidibe!!!!
Gabourey seems like such a down to earth young lady with a great personality. Yes she is a large lady. This is true. And hopefully she will shed some pounds for her health. But when she is ready she will. She does not need CLOWNS like Howard and Robin blasting her on national radio!!
And here is a question. What kind of talent does Howard have or Robin have? I think the pitbulls that Shorty trains on “Pit Boss” on TV have more talent than Howard and Robin!!!!!!!!!!! All Robin does is laugh and makes a stupid comment after Howard’s stupid comments!!!! It is beyond me why he makes millions. He is a no talent!!
These comments made by Howard and Robin should make Sidibe work harder and show the fool and crazy Howard that she is going to work and she will continue to be a wonderful actress and a great lady.
What Robin should have said on the radio as a African American female is how proud she was of Gabourey to be nominated for a Oscar and how proud she was of Monique to win a Oscar!!!! Instead of the very negative things said. Those comments make me angry and also very very sad.
What Howard said about Gabourey Sidibe is FLAT OUT WRONG AND TERRIBLE! I hope you readers are as bothered as I am by his comments.
