Televangelist Pat Robertson holds many convictions in his heart, but, apparently, knowing what’s on the Thanksgiving menu in the homes of African-Americans is not one of them.
On his 700 Club show on Wednesday, Robertson showed a clip from co-host Kristi Watts’s interview with Condoleezza Rice, in which Rice says her favorite Thanksgiving treat is macaroni and cheese.
Following the snippet, Robertson turns to Watts, who is Black, and asks inquisitively: “What is this mac ‘n’ cheese? Is that a Black thing?”
Yes, you read that right.
From The Sydney Morning Herald:
When you’re the single, dynamic secretary of state for the United States, you’re bound to pick up groupies in all corners of the international diplomatic scene.
But for Condoleezza Rice, who charmed diplomats from Rome to London to Pictou, Nova Scotia, perhaps the strangest of all has always been Muammar Gaddafi of Libya.
”Leezza, Leezza, Leezza … I love her very much,” Colonel Gaddafi told al-Jazeera in 2007, calling her his ”darling black African woman”.

This was originally posted in February 2008 over at American Street and reposted here almost a year ago. Since we’re talking about the comics, I thought I’d dust it off.
First, though, a tip of the hat to the lovely and talented Friend of the Court who suggested the theme for this humble submission.
With the business out of the way, let’s begin with

Since it’s the holiday season, I’m thinking about toys, specifically dolls. We’ve seen a few of them in the last few posts, but I thought I’d find some others we might have forgotten about and brush the dust off them. There are all different kinds of dolls. For example, there are the ones that talk…and talk…and talk…
…even when they have nothing of value to say.

Seems that Princess Sarah Palin is a little pissed off at that blue-blooded Barbara Bush. I think that Princess had better realize that she’s feuding with perhaps the grizzliest of mamas when she picks on Babs (or Bar, as Poppy calls her). Being blue-blooded has taught Babs to be as nasty as she wants to be while wearing a smile. Princess could learn a thing or two from her. Here’s a look back at Babs. George H. W. Poppy Bush and Babs had their hands full with Chimpy and Little Jebbie…

I didn’t feel like picking out an old post to rerun, so I thought I might do a compilation of food products we’ve seen here at the Raisin. Since the Raisin started during the Chimpy administration, I thought we’d start with some of products from back then. Speaking of Chimpy, let’s begin with a hearty George W. Bush breakfast…
