Homo Is The Nigger Of The World

When Adam Lambert lost American Idol last night, I couldn’t help but think of John and this famous 1972 performance on The Dick Cavett Show.  Before singing what is still today considered a controversial tune, Lennon explains what he meant when he wrote that song — women are still better than the gays.

Just read up on Brian Epstein and psychological projection.  It’s a salacious rumor which means it probably is true.

I had a conversation with someone on “Unusable Signal” who did not see a parallel (without respect to Idol) between Jim Crow and the treatment of homosexuals today.  Of course I agreed with him.  The very definition of Jim Crow must encompass separate drinking fountains and the like.  Short of that, the analogy holds no water and I cannot think of one recent example of basic rights being denied to gays.

I am certain a statistically significant number of people did not vote for Adam because of his sexual orientation causing him to lose.  Local Fox coverage after the show did not mention this issue once.  Not a word?  The lack of discussion evinces fear of the real discussion.

It’s a mad world.

    My mom used to say that she was trying to pronounce the more polite “nigra”,
    but that her accent made it sound like “nigger”.

      Ok.

      Um… Don’t you think homosexuals have taken over for women in terms of Lennon’s tune?

      “Gay. The New Black.” -me

      Btw… I actually am one of few who appreciate and care about Yoko. John loved her and who are we to judge. Paul screwed more things up IMHO. He messed with Pete Best, Stu Sutcliffe, and Yoko.

      That being said, her strange, herky-jerky with the drum I can’t id and her silence throughout reminds me of another instance of judging books by covers. Everyone blames Yoko.

      No. The Beatles broke up b/c their time was sadly at an end. “I don’t believe in Beatles… I don’t believe in Jesus.” Maybe John lost a little faith (not really he retreated from those remarks to an extent) because they dumped on his wife. I’d hit one of ’em over the head with the Rickenbacker.

    cube,
    who has seen the wind?
    niether you nor I, but when the trees bow down their heads the wind is passing by.

    p.s.
    and my original pressing of “don’t worry kyoko – mommy’s only looking for her hand in the snow” has survived 2 tidal surges that displaced a million people and killed every magnolia tree it touched.

    So SAD but TRUE How did this happen people? I thought Adam had this in the bag….Oh….my heart hurts!

    • Cube Says:

      I’m so pissed, I could have written a blog about it.

      It’s a sad commentary on society I think. Anyone who knows squadoosh about music, if blind, would have chosen him.

    My Goodness!! I think Kris Allen won the competition not because Adam is a gay, but because Kris’s voice is soooo amazing.. 🙂

    anyway, im sorry to hear about this.. but yes, it’s a mad world.
