And so it goes. Whenever people object to this crap (and it looks like a video has finally gone and literally used crap), the 1st amendment cries start up. I have long felt sorry for black female children being raised by TV, whose self-image must by now be subterranean.
Juan Williams, a black man who is a contributor to Fox's Beltway Boys, has recently written a book on the subject of modern black culture, which I intend to read:
Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead-End Movements, and Culture of Failure That Are Undermining Black America--and What We Can Do About It
by Juan Williams
Summary on Amazon.com:
From Publishers Weekly:
"When Bill Cosby addressed a 50th-anniversary celebration of Brown v. Board of Education, he created a major controversy with seemingly inoffensive counsel ("begin with getting a high school education, not having children until one is twenty-one and married, working hard at any job, and being good parents"). Building from Cosby's speech, NPR/Fox journalist Williams offers his ballast to Cosby's position. Williams starts with the question, "Why are so many black Americans, people born inside the gates of American opportunity, still living as if they were locked out from all America has to offer?" His answers include the debacle of big-city politics under self-serving black politicians; reparations as "a divisive dead-end idea"; the perilous state of city schools "under the alliance between the civil rights leaders and the teachers' unions"; and the transformation of rap from "its willingness to confront establishment and stereotypes" to "America's late-night masturbatory fantasy." A sense of the erosion of "the high moral standing of civil rights" underlies Cosby's anguish and Williams's anger. Politically interested readers of a mildly conservative bent will find this book sheer dynamite." (Aug.)

I thought it might be nice to include some facts on this since Mr. Crouch couldn't be bothered to do any research in his article. Snoop Dogg did walk around with women wearing leashes and dog collars, most notably at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards. The Awards show was covered by every newspaper in the country and seen by 100 times as many people then "Where My Dogs at?"(2006). Stanley Crouch and pressure group head Lisa Fager did not complain about Snoop's behavior. Even the poop gag was based on the 2nd season premiere of "Flavor of Love" when a woman names "Somethin" pooped on Flavor's floor. The woman who started the campaign to get the show cancelled was Lisa Fager, co-founder of the pressure group "Industry Ears". If you click on Lisa Fager's Facebook page you will notice that she lists "The Boondocks" as her favorite TV show. In December of 2005 "The Boondocks" aired an episode called "The Trial of Robert Kelly" that included footage of a 14 year old black girl constantly being urinated on and enjoying it. That episode aired 6 months before "Where My Dogs at?" premiered. Stanley Crouch was given this information in two emails and refused comment. There was also never a retraction by the New York Daily News. The Daily News also refused to comment. Lisa Fager proudly lists the shows cancellation on her resume.
This is the way black people are, don't blame MTV.

He's probably right. For Godssake look what it did to white people.
I wasn't blaming MTV. I was blaming Lisa Fager and Stanley Crouch for the whole badly researched story and I don't think either of them represent Black America, even though they claim to.
I was wondering why Insein started this thread since it was people like him forwarding this hack article that ended up cancellng this show. If anybody on the board knows him, will you please ask him to explain what motivated him? Does he forward a lot of Stanley Crouch articles? Does he know that Stanley Crouch has a long record of sucker punching homosexuals that is well documented in the Village Voice article "Crouching Stanley, Hidden Gagsta" (Google it) and is probably not the best person to be leading a moral crusade against anything. Did he know that it appears that Stanley Crouch had never even seen an episode of the show and did no research. The cartoon did not show a woman going to the bathoom and didn't even show any poop. Insein lists "South Park" as his favorite show and yet he is offended by the idea of someone making fun of the time Snoop Dogg went to an award show with women in dog collars. Are you kidding me? Insein also applauds South Park for making fun of Tom Cruise and Scientology. Did he know that two of the eight episodes of "Where My Dogs at?" made fun of Tom Cruise and Scientology. Have you ever even seen the show? It seems like if you are going to forward badly researched articles in this group you should at least explain yourself. I am asking because this article was forwarded to about a million websites in a little over a 7 day period. It was almost like a deranged chain letter type virus that was spread all over the internet five years ago. It would be nice to know why.
