Roseanne Barr Blames Sleep Aid “Ambien” For Her Racist Tweet Calling President Obama’s Top Adviser…Valerie Jarrett…An Ape. YES!…God Gave Us A Freewill…Even To Be Racist. But PLE-E-E-E-A-S-E!!! If You Choose To Be Racist, Then…Own That Shit!!!

O.k…   For decades, I’ve heard the rumor that King Kong REALLY committed suicide by leaping off the Empire State building, after taking the sleep aid “Ambien,”                but…D-A-A-A-M-N!!!…   I didn’t know that taking it… could make you…RACIST???   But…  You live & you learn.  Now, check this out…

A few days ago, Roseanne Barr (who starred in the “Roseanne” show) felt the need to tweet out to the world & reveal, again…her true nature.   This time…her target was, a 61-year old Black woman, Valerie Jarrett (President Obama’s top advisor in the White House).   Roseanne’s tweeted the following:

Barr uses Valerie Jarrett’s initials in the tweet…saying that this Black woman…is an “ape.”  There is no ambiguity here.  Roseanne makes it very plain…what she is saying about Valerie Jarrett.  O.k…

It’s one thing to disagree with someone on politics…but, it’s a whole other thing…when you try to degrade & demean them…based on race.   OH, MY GOODNESS!!!  When you step into that lane…of…EVIL…we are in a whole other realm that MUST be dealt with.  First…

We must understand that when you talk like this…it is not in a vacuum.  Everything must be considered in it’s proper context.  Thus…   Roseanne Barr’s tweet cannot stand “alone.”  It can’t.  When she sent the tweet, this country’s racist-ass history…automatically raised its head.   It raised up & took its place right beside…her tweet.  So, we must…go back a bit.

For centuries, White folk… wrongfully held Black folk in captivity…in bondage.  History.com reports… “Though the U.S. Congress outlawed the African slave trade in 1808, the domestic trade flourished, and the slave population in the U.S. nearly tripled over the next 50 years.  By 1860 it had reached nearly 4 million, with more than half living in the cotton-producing states of the South.”  4 million!!!  That’s a helluva lot of Black folk held in captivity. White folk mercilessly worked them…24/7.  Daily…they were ferociously abused by White folk.  And, by “ferocious”…I mean that White folk treated Black folk in a savagely cruel, violent & vicious manner.  These abusive actions entailed White folk…whipping, lynching, mutilating, tar & feathering, shooting, raping women, sodomizing men & starving them…at whim.  Now…

To justify their savagery, White folk decided to come up with some theories about Black folk.  They came up with the notion that Black folk…were more akin to animals, than human.  In this way, the pro-slavery argument would go something like… “Well, because they are sub-human…God created them to be enslaved by White folk.  It is the natural order of things.  They are inferior to White folk. They can’t learn like White folk.  They do not have emotions like White folk.  There is no harm done when their children are sold off…because the parents don’t bond with them, anyway.  By enslaving them, White folk are doing them a favor.   White folk are saving them from themselves.”

O.k…

On March 6, 1857, Chief Justice Roger Taney, in the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dred Scott v. Sanford decision…elaborated on this sentiment that Black folk were inferior to White folk.  In this case…Dred Scott, an enslaved African-American, sued for his freedom.  What a BRAVE…BRAVE…soul to BOLDLY stand-up for his GOD GIVEN right…to be FREE…in the midst of such EVIL!!!  (picture of Dred Scott to the right) Now…

In denying Dred Scott any relief…Chief Justice Taney said… “The words “people of the United States” and “citizens” are synonymous terms, and mean the same thing. They both describe the political body who … form the sovereignty, and who hold the power and conduct the Government through their representatives….

The question before us is, whether the class of persons described in the plea in abatement [people of African ancestry] compose a portion of this people, and are constituent members of this sovereignty? We think they are not, and that they are not included, and were not intended to be included, under the word “citizens” in the Constitution, and can therefore claim none of the rights and privileges which that instrument provides for and secures to citizens of the United States. On the contrary, they were at that time considered as a subordinate  and inferior class of beings, who had been subjugated by the dominant race, and, whether emancipated or not, yet remained subject to their authority, and had no rights or privileges but such as those who held the power and the Government might choose to grant them.”

Now…

What gets me is this…  Even with this racist, self-serving rationale…if Black folk were the inferior sub-humans …that White folk tried to make them out to be, then, why???…   Why would you have to make it illegal for them to be educated?  Why the need to figuratively & literally hold them down?  Wouldn’t they naturally (without shackling their bodies & minds) lag behind White folk, intellectually?  I tell you what…  I could put a book in front of a cat all day long…& I’ll bet you money that…that cat will never out read me.  O.k…

These theories about racial inferiority, sub-human qualities…were not just espoused & sprinkled…here & there.  No! No! No!  A whole propaganda campaign…was put into full force & effect.  This shit was disseminated through books, pamphlets, cartoons, newspapers, speeches, etc.    The campaign was designed to reach a large segment of society in hopes that all White folk would could get on board.   In this way, who would be left to shudder at the true barbaric nature of the “White folk” who kidnapped & held other human beings in captivity?  Who would be left to declare the true savage heart of the “White folk” …who treated other human beings so viciously…& so vile?  Who would be left to shout from the mountain… “Slavery is the evil work of  human devils…not, God!”  Now…

Don’t think that just because emancipation laws removed the physical chains…that the hearts of the enslavers…somehow changed overnight.   HELL NO!  Most White folk weren’t sorry about enslaving & oppressing Black folk.   Those devilish asses were only sorry that they LOST…the war!  And…don’t kid yourself.  Vestiges from those wretched hearts…live on today.   Believe it…or not…but, to this day…many White folk don’t see anything wrong with what happened to Black folk…during slavery.  For example…

Roy Moore was the 28th and the 32ndChief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.    This is the highest Judicial position anyone could hold in the state of Alabama.  Moore served as Chief Justice (2001-2003)  & (2013-2016).  He recently ran for the U.S. Senate seat for the state of Alabama but lost to the Democratic candidate,  Doug Jones, on Tuesday, December 12, 2017.   Now…

The Los Angeles Times…reports that… in September 2017, at a campaign rally in Florence, Alabama… “In response to a question from one of the only African Americans in the audience — who asked when Moore thought America was last “great” — Moore acknowledged the nation’s history of racial divisions, but said: “I think it was great at the time when families were united — even though we had slavery — they cared for one another…. Our families were strong, our country had a direction.”” So…

What we had here was a White man…as the top judge of Alabama…making decisions in important cases involving Black folk in Alabama…holding the view that slavery was “GREAT!!!”  Meaning…   He saw NO PROBLEM…with millions of Black folk being denigrated, tortured & held as captives.   His racist…evil ass…had no business EVER being in that position of power!!!  Now…

Despite Roy Moore thinking this country was “Great” during the days of slavery…Donald Trump STILL backed him to be a United States Senator.   Trump Tweets:

Pelosi/Schumer Liberal Puppet [Doug] Jones into office in Alabama would hurt our great Republican Agenda.”

O.k…

Today, we have people like Roseanne Barr…believing that she is superior to Black folk.  Oh, for sure…this is how she feels.  Think about it.   You don’t use the playbook of slavery…pull the “you look like an ape” trick out of your hat…if you are not being “racist.”  Roseanne Barr could have said fifty, non-racist things about Valerie Jarrett (photo to the right, courtesy of MSNBC)…to show how she disagrees with Jarrett’s politics…BUT…she didn’t.   This wench…used “racism” …to go for Jarrett’s throat.   Roseanne Barr intentionally texted what she texted…& she loved it.  This is a warped, evil & racist ass heart.  And…

Valerie Jarrett is not the first Black woman that Roseanne Barr has talked this “ape” shit about.  In December 2013, Susan Rice, President Obama’s U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and National Security Adviser…also was on the receiving end of a Roseanne Barr love tweet.   Here’s the tweet:

First, she calls this Black woman a man.  But, a man…with ape balls.  Her racist heart just wouldn’t even let her give Susan Rice…human balls.  Ain’t that a shame??? Anyway…

If you have a heart like Roseanne Barr’s…jealousy rules your day.   She has a hard got damn time processing that these 2 Black women rose so high up in government.   They were in very powerful positions.  One…the top adviser to a President of the United States.  The other…the  National Security Adviser/U.N. Ambassador of the United States.   These truths burn Barr’s ass.   Why??? Because to a racist heart…Jarrett & Rice have stepped out of their place.   Their place is not to ascend to some of the highest positions in the United States government.  For Barr, they should still be in some cotton field somewhere…pickin’ cotton.   And…preferably…for her.   O.k…

In tweeting out…these racist tweets against Susan Rice & Valerie Jarrett…Roseanne Barr is trying to demean & degrade them intellectually.   When Susan Rice & Valerie Jarrett speak, Roseanne wants you to think that you are listening to an ape…speak.  She is using racism as a way to undermine any  political viewpoint either of these woman espouse.   In other words, she is saying… “What human being needs to listen to the opinion of an ape?”  So, if she can convince you that they are less than human…then, maybe she will be successful in getting you to ignore anything they say.   (picture of Susan Rice…above to the left) Now…

What Roseanne Barr didn’t count on was the immediate backlash that she received after tweeting about Valerie Jarrett.   And, the hell that Barr broke loose…fell right on top of her  “trashy-ass” head.   Yes!

Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s show “Morning Joe” …tweeted in response to Barr’s tweet:

Joe Scarborough

✔@JoeNBC

Hey @ABC, Roseanne Barr compared Valerie Jarrett to an ape. There is no apology she can make that justifies @ABC turning a blind eye to this bigotry by airing another second of her show.
Even in the Age of Trump, there are red lines that can never be crossed. This is one.

11:04 AM – May 29, 2018

Wanda Sykes, who was an adviser to the “Roseanne” show…tweeted in response to Barr’s tweet:

Wanda Sykes

✔@iamwandasykes

I will not be returning to @RoseanneOnABC.

12:04 PM – May 29, 2018

Now…   Within hours of the tweet, ABC cancelled her re-booted…hit sitcom… “Roseanne” show.  Kaboom…Kabam…Kapow!!!  That shit was gone.   ABC Entertainment’s President, Channing Dungey, said…in a statement… “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”   Now…

Before her show was cancelled by ABC, Barr tweeted the following apology:

Now…

After, ABC cancelled her show…Roseanne Barr…said it was her Ambien medication which caused her to tweet out the racist rant…towards Valerie Jarrett.   Huh???…  Well…guess what?  The maker of Ambien,  Sanofi, let Barr know,  in no uncertain terms, that they weren’t going to lie down…or sleep…on that shit.

Yesterday, Sanofi tweeted in response to Barr’s tweet:

Sanofi US

✔@SanofiUS

People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.

9:57 AM – May 30, 2018

O.k…   The ONLY reason that Roseanne apologized is that she started feeling the backlash…& got “skeered.”   That’s right!  She was afraid thatABC” would do…just what they ended up doing.  CANCELING HER GOT DAMN SHOW.   CNN reports… “I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends. I begged them not to cancel the show. I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right. I’d worked doing publicity 4 them 4 free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis. I begged 4 ppls jobs,” she wrote.” There is no doubt in my mind that Roseanne meant what she said…& said what she meant.  She meant to perpetuate racial stereotypes about Valerie Jarrett, just as sure as I’m breathing.  And, she did it to discredit & devalue anything that Valerie Jarrett might say.   So….

I say to Roseanne Barr… “Don’t brazenly talk your racist shit…& then, try to hide & cower behind a thousand…“I’m sorry.  I’m sorry.  I’m sorry.”  If you are BOLD enough to tweet that shit out to the world…in order to degrade a whole race of people…then, got damn it be BOLD enough…to own it.   Stand-up girl!  Be counted as the trashy…crack showing…spitting on the national anthem…racist clown…that you know yourself to be.  You see…  I wouldn’t want someone to mistake you for being something…other than, the devilish ass that you really are.  And, for the record…   Your “sorry” means about as much to me…as that fake ass apology given by Paula Deen.   In other words, it don’t mean shit.  Just like the South was only “sorry” that they lost the war…your ass is only “sorry” that you… lost your show.   I noticed…    It was only when shit got real…that we hear you blaming “the tweet” on… “being a bad joke”… “being the fault of sedative medication.”   Hell…why stop there…Roseanne???  Why not blame it on the… oh, I don’t know… “rain???”   Especially since ABC…has hung your ass out to dry.”
