You Decide: Fool Of The Week

 

Alright now, ya'll. I need some reader participation. Who deserves the honor of biggest fool of the week?

Solange:

Rap-up magazine: On being a Knowles

“At this point, it’s starting to hurt me more than help me because my family is sort of known as the new age Huxtables. We’re the clean-cut girls. But I got married at 17, had a kid at 17. Ever since I was younger, I always considered myself to be into more artistic things than [Beyoncé]. People just hear the [Knowles] name and they just put a stamp on it automatically.”

Bill O'Reilly:

FNC's Bill O'Reilly said Wednesday that the network didn't report on Jackson's use of the racial epithet previously because "I'm not in the business of hurting Jesse Jackson -- because it does hurt Jesse Jackson -- and I'm not in the business of creating some kind of controversy that's not relevant to the general subject: one civil rights leader disparaging another over policy. So we held it back. Some weasel leaked it to the Internet."

Soulja Boy:

On the importance of lyricism: "Ain't nobody into that shit no more."



Start at 1:45.

Elizabeth Hasselback:



Why is she crying?

Jesse Jackson:

Then:

Rev. Jesse Jackson is calling for entertainers to stop using the N-word.
"We will challenge and urge all artists and comics to stop using this word," Jackson said. "What other group is subjected to such a degrading terminology?"
Now:
The Rev. Jesse Jackson used the N-word during a break in a TV interview where he criticized presidential candidate Barack Obama, Fox News confirmed Wednesday.

Let your voice be heard!

The Cynical Ones.
