...Jonathan Capehart, the Washington Post editorial writer, who incidentally is a black gay man...

Okay Rod, if you say so!
Just because you have black skin don't mean you are black!

What is on the meny at this cocktail party?

DOMA canapes?

Don't Ask Don't tell martinis?

Oh yea maybe this is where some deputy chief of staff will "apologize" for the DOMA brief, Obama walks in shakes everyones hand and does photo opps, and we're told all is well?

Jesse

cocktail party = fail

We don't need any schmoozing at all. No canapes, no champagne no finger food. We need a time line and the Congress to get on the ball. And the White House to tell Congress to get on the bal!

Oh and where did this 60 VOTE meme begin? So now every Senate vote needs a 60 vote supermajority for cloture? WTF is Harry Reid doing, its his majority, senators cant filibuster everything...and saying that raises the bar and puts all the responsibility on us and congress.

So much for being a "fierce advocate", make a damn call or two, get something from these damn Republicans you cater to every day and night!

FREELEO

I guess my invitation got lost in the mail.

Faison

Yours and mine both Freeleo, lol

Chitown Kev

@FREELEO

lmao

Pam put her foot in that that essay too.

Faison

Signorile is absolutely right. We don't need a cocktail party, we need some action and deliverables.

Oh and I mam so MFing sure Capehart will be there.

The house Negro could afford to do that because he lived better than the field Negro. He ate better, he dressed better, and he lived in a better house. He lived right up next to his master - in the attic or the basement. He ate the same food his master ate and wore his same clothes. And he could talk just like his master - good diction. And he loved his master more than his master loved himself. That's why he didn't want his master hurt. If the master got sick, he'd say, "What's the matter, boss, we sick?" When the master's house caught afire, he'd try and put the fire out. He didn't want his master's house burned. He never wanted his master's property threatened. And he was more defensive of it than the master was.

That was the house Negro. But then you had some field Negroes, who lived in huts, had nothing to lose. They wore the worst kind of clothes. They ate the worst food. And they caught hell. They felt the sting of the lash. They hated their master. Oh yes, they did. If the master got sick, they'd pray that the master died. If the master's house caught afire, they'd pray for a strong wind to come along. This was the difference between the two.

And today you still have house Negroes and field Negroes. I'm a field Negro.

OKAY!!!! This is TRUTH!
We might have a black man in the White House but baby its the same ole script, field negroes vs house negroes. And whatbis so funny is that all the black folks in Chicago used to accuse Obama of being a house negro ... now, he has fooled everyone and all the black folks now say if you disagree with him, you are trying to be "house." This is craziness, even crazier than that Craigslist hustler's video.

Why are these gays and even more importantly black gays alllowing themselves to be paralyzed against fighting for their rights?

A damn cocktail party. Aint that a blip.

Chitown Kev

That is exactly what is so F'ING hilarious (and sad) about all this. Much of the black conservative church community in Chicago HATED Barack Obama. I still can't get used to all this Obama love in the black community.

King Drive

@ Chitown:

Don't get me started, man. We could write a book between us called "Bamboozled". We are from Chitown and know the real deal.

(pause)

I wish the gay activists best of luck on pressing for our demands. But he is a smooth talker, our President. I admire the man but have seen up close how he will run a Chevy Suburban (in reverse!) over anyone in his way!

TheRevKev

I have never been so insulted in my life.

A COCKTAIL PARTY TO SOOTHE THE GAYS?


REALLY?!

A Cocktail Party?

Will they be flying in Janet and Beyonce; Liza and Patti Lupone; Lady GaGa and some other pseudo diva, to insure that we are properly distracted?

OR is this when they enlisted HOT ACTORS AND ATHLETES to bang out and bend over for the gays, for the good of National security!?

THIS IS VILE! That food needs to be given to the homeless that sleep directly across the street from The White House.

We can make our own food, thank you Mr. President. The Blacks better not get mad or Mother Robinson will be up frying chicken all night!

Chitown Kev

"The Blacks better not get mad or Mother Robinson will be up frying chicken all night!"


Damn, RevKev, you owe me a keyboard. lmao

ReggieH

I didn't get an invite either...guess it's back to The D List for me!:)

BTW, even with 'the recent unpleasantness' I'd still go to the White House, to express my unhappiness to The Pres in person (and to hail Diva Michelle:)

@ Rev Kev:

I moved your comment into the story. And as Baltimore Femme told me in a nother post, "You ain't gonna worry me!" -RM

TB

This doesn't impress me at all.
And that Mr. Jonathan Capehart...he lives very removed from the rest of us. He has a great job, money in the bank, benefits for his partner..they are gonna trot out their house so called negro to tell folks to calm down.

Hey JohnJohn: BITE ME!

yeah and who is invited to this soiree?

Kevjack

This is how Obama does damage control. Remember when he invited Repubs over for the Super Bowl and other events? Remember how that blew up in his face when the stimulus passed with zero Repub support in the house and then three Senators held it hostage? Certainly party planning is not his forte.

@RevKev-- you are so right! But I see you did not mention Patti LaBelle, Whitney, or Ms. Ross. (We both know the children would *certainly* be distracted by them!)

Nathan James

A White House shindig held exclusively for "A-list gays" will not necessarily enlighten the Obama administration about the true mood of the LGBT community on recent developments. President Obama will not learn of our ire over the DOMA and DADT briefs, or the continuing support of "civil unions" vs. gay marriage which has been his position since before the election. The only way the White House will become aware of how much it has alienated our community (and gays and lesbians of color in particular), is to hear from us as a voting bloc.

I hope things change for the better vis-a-vis the WH and LGBT rights. Cocktail parties for the "A-list" isn't even "appeasement", it's just sad.
