Watch A Fox News Anchor Say The UCONN Huskies Are The "NAACP" Champs Instead Of NCAA!

Filed under: ZportzBasketball

What??! How hard is this to get right!?

We've never even seen a basketball in real life, and we still know what the NCAA is! (JK, we've seen plenty of balls! Basket ones too!)

After the University of Connecticut men’s basketball team won the NCAA championship on Monday night, they became the top story everywhere.

And that includes Fox & Friends First, where Heather Childers reported that the team won the NAACP championship.

Homophobic Oklahoma State Legislator Gets Reprimanded For Horrid Racist & Sexist Comments

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitik

sally kern gets reprimanded

Last week, Oklahoma City Rep Sally Kern was living up to her reputation by supporting approval on a proposed constitutional amendment to eliminate Affirmative Action in state government.

Sally made horrendous comments to the press about the amendment passing. She expressed her warped belief that minorities earn less than white people because they don’t work as hard and have less initiative. She felt that stripping them of the ease of Affirmative Action will make them proactive.

She said even worse things about both African Americans AND women, and now we're VERY happy to learn that the Oklahoma House has voted to reprimand Kern for her horrendous comments.

Here's what Kern had to say about it:

"Last Wednesday night while debating a bill, I said some words that were not well thought out and that offended many African Americans and many women. That was not my intent, but sadly it happened, and I take full responsibility for it and I'm truly sorry."

"While my words were not expressed well and implied things I did not mean, they were not spoken with any contempt or malice."

Despite Sally's apology, the president of the Oklahoma chapter for the NAACP and the chairman of the Oklahoma Democratic party both are calling for her resignation.

YES! We think she should absolutely resign. As we said before, she's a narrow-minded, homophobic, sexist bigot, and we feel sorry that the people of Oklahoma have her as a representative.

Kid Rock Causes NAACP Drama!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooMusic MinuteAwardzKid Rock

kid rock causes naacp turmoil

Looks like Kid Rock has caused some turmoil within NAACP.

Supporters of the group are planning to boycott their "Detroit arm's annual fundraiser" because they'll be honoring Kid Rock, who "doesn't mesh with the civil rights group's goals."

Many NAACP supporters have issues with Kid Rock because of his use of the Confederate flag during concerts, and as a result, they'll be sitting out from the fundraiser, where Kid will receive the "Detroit branch's Great Expectations Award."

Here's what head of Detroiters for Progress Adolph Mongo had to say about the misuse of the confederate flag:

"It's a slap in the face for anyone who fought for civil rights in this country. It's a symbol of hatred and bigotry."

And here's what NAACP officials had to say in Kid Rock's defense:

"Kid Rock…has consistently lifted up the Great Expectations of many persons…concerning the future of the city."

Do U think Kid Rock deserves the honor? Or do U also take issue with his usage of the Confederate flag during concerts?

Justin Timberlake Nominated For NAACP Image Award!

justin timberlake gets naacp nom

Guess the NAACP must have REALLY liked The Social Network.

The NAACP Image Awards "honor accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film," yet Justin Timberlake got a best supporting actor nomination for his performance as Sean Parker in The Social Network.

We think it's cool that this organization is recognizing his excellent performance, but as is probably the case with many others, we were surprised to see the nomination.

Should be inneresting to see if he wins!
