You have heard the new controversy right. There is some talk that fair skin Black women are abused by dark skin black men? And light skin black woman love it. Do Fair skin black women select dark skin men as their soul mates only to be abused by them? OK, and as reported by Politco.com when on his pre-inaugural visit to Ben’s Chili Bowl, a landmark for Washington’s African-American community, President Barack Obama was asked by a cashier if he wanted his change back. “Nah, we straight,” Obama replied. The phrase was so subtle some listeners missed it. The reporter on pool duty quoted Obama as saying, “No, we’re straight.” But many other listeners did not miss it. A video of the exchange became an Internet hit, and there was a clear moment of recognition among many blacks, who got a kick out of their Harvard-educated president sounding, as one commenter wrote on a hip-hop site, “mad cool.” Why Did Micheal steele apologize, Is Madea on the down low, and more tonight on the slugfest! y
