I'm Just Saying . . .
With the recent headlines regarding explicit photos of AI's current contestant Antonella Barba being brought to focus, a rally
on Tuesday will examine the issue of a double standard as it relates to the Fox-TV program's treatment of Frenchie Davis.
Civil rights activist Najee Ali along with a group called Friends for Frenchie Davis will confront American Idol producers tomorrow claiming a double standard exists.
If the name Ali's name rings a bell it's because he is the same community leader who protested that Eddie Murphy's film 'Norbit' was offensive to Black women.
Just to show you how important
the protest really is Frenchie Davis will join via telephone.
I'm not trying to rain on the brother's parade or anything but there has got to be another cause his ass can hold a rally for besides this. I'm just saying.
You don't see me standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial giving speeches about why James Brown is still chilling above ground or Bobby Jones flagrant use of rhinestones and sequins. I am passionate
about those issues yet I choose to remain silent. I'm not out demonstrating against Akon's face in that damn Verizon commercial. And believe me when I say that shit makes my soul disintegrate every time I watch it.
