Last week I told you that former choreographer-turned-music mogul Devyne Stephens wined and dined singer Kelly Rowland during the BET Hip Hop Awards weekend in Atlanta.


Some scoffed at the news that Devyne and Kelly Rowland were a romantic item. They doubted my word, as they always do. But Devyne and Kelly set tongues wagging when they stepped out as an official couple for the first time last night in Atlanta!

The occasion was the ASCAP event honoring outstanding females in the entertainment industry.

Honorees in Atlanta included Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Kelly Rowland; Hannah Kang, General Manager of Grand Hustle Records; and Sandra Brown, Entertainment Attorney.


Celebrity photographer Prince Williams of ATLPics.net was there to capture the moment when Devyne stood up to proudly applaud his lady, Kelly Rowland, as she walked up to the podium to accept her award. Isn't love grand?

Canadian rapper Drake is in Atlanta recording an album with Trey Songz and others, or so I'm told.

During a break in recording, Drake decided to partake in the skills of the local talent -- a business woman -- so to speak.

The couple -- who had known each other for all of 3 hours -- stopped by the newly christened "Monday Nights" at Tongue & Groove last night.


Monday nights at Tongue & Groove is a new joint venture by AG Entertainment's Alex Gidewon (pictured above with Drake) and Upscale Entertainment, who moved Mondays from the Gold Room to Tongue & Groove.


Drake and his date chilled in the VIP, smoking Newports and downing a few drinks before calling it a night. I assume they went back to Drake's hotel room to make a movie?

Rapper 50 Cent, who's been acting quite bizarre lately, was spotted at the Los Angeles Premiere of "Red" at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood yesterday. I wonder if he stayed to watch the movie, or if he just walked the red carpet and left like everyone else does?

Stylish rapper Kanye West is still in Sydney, Australia promoting his 40-minute movie/music video.


Is it a little late in the evening for some Morning Wood? Sexy singer Akon performed at the Think Pink Rocks concert to benefit breast cancer research charities at Mizner Park Amphitheatre on Saturday (Oct. 9) in Boca Raton, Florida. That's confetti all over him, not blood.

A loyal reader emailed me to ask why I never covered the Peter Thomas/ Uptown scandal. the answer is: I couldn't care less. I guess I have other things going on in my life that take precedence over worrying about nobodies and what they're up to.

Anyway, my reader accuses Thomas of not paying his workers when Uptown Restaurant was open. She also says Bravo network hired stand-ins to act as employees of Uptown, which was closed 6 months ago.

**Loyal reader Ruby Kisses writes:

Your stuff is always FIRE! However, Im curious as to why you have not address Peter Thomas the con man that is NOT the owner of Uptown Restaurant and Lounge, everyone (except the chick he married) knows his game..... The place is closed I personally saw a marshal's eviction note slapped on the door ---- when it was open there was always bs, this dude would not pay the people who worked there.

Imagine working for 2 weeks, and being told: "you started on an off pay week, payday is in two MORE weeks for you." You could wait it out for 2 more weeks, and on payday he has another lie, or just doesnt show up! Eventually the staff (one by one) would quit and he would just replace them, with another naive cocktail waitress. (Oh he is goooooood at what he does: CONS) -The "staff" on tv tonight were Bravo stand-ins as they did not work there... Too funny!

Im sure he hoped to capitalize on celebrities being in town for the BET hip hop awards. He has never owned ish..just a front for the real owner (Uptown is OWNED by a retired nfl player .... Research the spots he claims to have owned in other markets (NYC, LA, MIA etc)! He will "do the town" and get run out of town. He usually dates "celebrity woman" to use them for who they know and of course their money!

Cadillac Kimberly was right: there is nothing Real about this show! He claims to have been an executive at Def Jam..... more lies. He is NOT an executive at anything. There are a million pending lawsuits, people would come to the club to serve him all day every day -- he doesnt care due to the fact that is NOT HIS PROPERTY HE OWNS NOTHING!!!!!!! Fraud, Phony, BS! This spot for the longest didn't even have a liquor license and was shut down because of that, he just would reopen and buy liquor himself - ILLEGAL IN GA!!!!!!!!

I heard Bravo peeps "had enough" and wanted a real married couple......... and he desperately needed the money so.......... wha-la, opportunity a knocking! He only would hire woman, because he knew he would take advantage of them! A real punk!

Ruby kisses for you, love what you do, cuz you bring it to us first!

Dorrough, an obscure Dallas, Texas rapper (code word for dope boy) managed to get B and C-list rappers to jump on the Remix of his subpar "Get Big" single.

The remix features drops by Diddy, DJ Drama, Yo Gotti, Bun B, Diamond, Shawty Lo & Maino.

You're probably wondering how does an unsigned artist manage to get so many recognized names to jump on his remix? Well, considering that all of their careers have seen better days, what else do they have to do with their time?


Are you sitting down? I think the following news might devastate some of you delusional CB Stans. I don't want you to pass out and bump your heads on the way down to the floor.

Yesterday, I received an email from a loyal reader who asked to remain anonymous. The reader identified the "boy" standing with convicted woman beater chris brown in yesterday's Celebs Out & About Post as a girl.

In all of the pictures taken outside the hotel, chris and the person I assumed was a boy, appear to be attached at the hip. brown does not leave her side.

The reader also stated that the two are secretly dating (!!), and that her hair is up in pins because they just left their NY hotel room together to catch a limo ride to the airport. Supposedly, chris doesn't want it to get out that he's dating such a rough looking chick. But my loyal reader tells me it's true love!

That would make sense, especially when you consider that brown has been looking extra zesty lately, wearing his girlfriend's Capri's and other feminine articles of clothing.

Despite all appearances, the 21-year-old, who calls herself "Moe," probably short for Monique, includes the phrase "No Homo" on her various social networking pages -- as if to stress that she isn't a lesbian.

Her Myspace and Twitter pages have been recently scrubbed clean of all pics of chris brown -- even though they are obviously close.

On her Myspace page, Moe had a pic of Rihanna with the words "ON DA D*CK."

But my loyal reader says that "Moe" is in fact a lesbian. The word my reader used to describe Moe was "butch."

She does in fact, look like a cute tranny when she is cleaned up. But maybe that's what brown is into these days?

So does this mean that all of those recent paparazzi shots of convicted woman beater chris brown frolicking in the surf with hawt bodied chicks were staged to throw us off the real story?

Even though U.S. President Barack Obama's name is not on the ballot in the upcoming midterm elections, he has hit the campaign trail hard because he desperately needs a win.

So for the first time in 20 months, Obama, who is half black, is reaching out to the black and independent voters whose passion and eagerness to make history, helped propel him into office in 2008.

Never mind that he promised the moon and the stars -- and failed to deliver -- Obama fully expects black voters to turn out in record numbers at the polls on November 2nd.

“We need to finish the plan you elected me to put in place. And I need you. I need you because this isn’t going to be easy," said Obama at a Congressional Black Caucus’ annual dinner last month. [link]

A typical narcissist, Obama has made the midterm elections all about him rather than about the politicians whose names are on the ballot. He has made it clear that a loss for the Democrats in November would be a devastating failure for him personally.

“Don’t make me look bad, now,” Obama pleaded at a rally on the campus of historically black Bowie State University last week.

“Two years ago you defied the conventional wisdom in Washington,” Obama told thousands of black supporters Sunday at a rally in Philadelphia. “They said, ‘No you can’t. No you can’t elect a skinny guy with a funny name to the presidency of the United States,’” he added.

But not everyone in the black community hears Obama's rallying cry. There are some who are suspicious of Obama's sudden interest in the black community -- even if they don't voice their suspicions out loud.

“We haven’t heard from you in a while,” radio host Tom Joyner said sarcastically to the president at the start of his interview last month. [link]

“You know, I don’t get a chance to do much radio these days,” replied Obama, who records a weekly radio address every Saturday morning.

It's clear that Obama's faithful flock doesn't hold him to the same standards that they held George Bush to. Despite record unemployment in the black community, there are those who still make excuses for O.

“We know that people have short memories, but they have to remember that Barack Obama didn’t create this problem,” Carolyn Pinkney, an African American voter, said at Obama’s rally.

“Of course there’s some disenchantment because the president came in with such high expectations levels,” said Rendell. “But on the other hand there’s still a lot of African Americans who say, ‘Hey, he’s not superman and he can’t change everything in 20 months.’” [link]

According to a loyal reader, who asked to remain anonymous, NBA player Amar'e Stoudemire is upset with ESPN magazine for Photoshopping his shorts off of him in that soon-to-be classic Body Issue shot.

She also implies that the majority of you who thought he was packing might be correct.

Ok Sandra ..you know my people's is the mother to Amare's children ...an she thinks this is hilarious cause she wants people to continue to believe that he has a small peen...lol

But he was in Italy when the pics came out..so when she told him the pics where online , he asked , "with my shorts on right?"...lol. When the pictures were taken he had on shorts , they airbrushed them off...

*don't use my name , just clarifying ...cause the media was having a field day

A NFL wife and her mom has responded to comedian Steve Harvey's successful book "Think Like a Man".

Shanae Hall, who penned "Why Do I Have To Think Like a Man?" with her mother Rhonda Frost, says, “It’s not the man that makes the difference, it’s how you (women) deal with the man that makes the difference between heartbreak and a mutually beneficially situation.”

She is right about one thing: the success of a relationship often falls on the woman's shoulders. Healthy (non-narcissistic) men tend to be uncomplicated, while women can be complicated for no reason at all.

Men come into a relationship with a simple mindset: Me, man. You, woman,. It doesn't get any simpler than that.

But women manage to upset the balance of a relationship due to their unchecked emotions, unrealistic expectations of men, and their dogged determination to change him.

Even though Hall is no longer married to former NFL player Cory Hall, she and Frost combined to write a book dispensing tried and true advice to women on how to deal with the men in their lives.

The book, which is in stores now, is based on more than 300 interviews with men and women over 25, and the author’s own dating drama.

It reveals a unique perspective on deal breakers, commitment, baggage, what men really want and getting what women want in return – from Hall and her mother, Rhonda Frost. The mother-daughter, hold-nothing-back collaboration aims to give readers a perspective that Steve Harvey’s “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” and his upcoming piece “Straight Talk, No Chaser” could not, an uncensored woman’s view on dating. Source

While Harvey believes that thinking like a man is a recipe for a successful marriage, Hall says she can teach you to continue thinking like a lady, and still get your man.

Apparently, it didn't work for her though.

A loyal reader sent in these pics of VH1's Football Wives, baby mamas and jump-offs doing lunch in Dallas, Texas over the weekend. Shout out to Dallas' most well known exotic dancer, Zeralyn, who dated one of the Dallas cowboys and was made a kept woman by another NFL player. She should have been cast in this show since it doesn't matter if the cast members are married or not.

Anywho, most of the cast met for lunch recently, except for Pilar Sanders --who's married to retired Cowboys star Deion -- and who the rest of the cast hates.

Their faces may be unknown to us now, but I'm sure they will leave an indelible impression on our souls once the Football Wives season debuts on October 24.


Amanda Davis (wife of Cowboys' RG Leonard Davis) rocked a Louis Vuitton bag that we've never saw before. Is it real? She is obviously meant to be the Kim Zolciak of the bunch. Let's hope she has better sense than the wig wearing mother of 2.


Chanita Foster aka "The Drag Queen," looked Fab! We don't really believe she was born a man. But she does make Wendy Williams look like Miss USA. Chanita is the wife of UFL Tackle George Foster.


Dawn Neufeld, wife of UFL TE Ryan Neufeld, is the only member of the cast who I am even remotely interested in (for now). Why? Because she seems to be the only one who is comfortable in her own skin. She's not wearing makeup, which to me is a sign of confidence and comfort with her own natural beauty.

U.S. President barack Obama stood grinning in front of a cheering crowd of 17,000 during a campaign rally in Philadelphia on Sunday, when suddenly a book thrown from the crowd whistled past his head.

Obama seemed to be oblivious to the book toss. If he knew that the book narrowly missed his head, he sure didn't indicate it.

Meanwhile, police and Secret Service had their hands full after subduing a man who decided to strip completely naked at the rally.

It isn't clear if the man was the book tosser, or what happened to his clothes. But it is clear that the man's protest action was in reference to the children's storybook fable "The Emperor's New Clothes," about a man -- in this case, Obama -- who is so narcissistic and self-absorbed that he simply can't see his own flaws or the fact that he is being made a fool of.


I wonder if that the hurled book might have contained short stories, including the children's classic "The Emperor's New Clothes"?

The book throwing incident is reminiscent of the infamous shoe throwing incident that occurred at a Bush press press conference in Baghdad in 2008.


An enraged Iraqi journalist stood up and hurled both of his shoes (one by one) at the head of former president George Bush, before being immediately tackled and jailed.

Philly's huge rally is part of Obama's plan to reconnect with black voters and to re-energize his base that got him elected president.


Obama largely ignored black people during his run for president in 2008. Though Obama's support among blacks remains high, he doesn't enjoy the same level of comfort that he did in '08 when he knew for sure that blacks would vote him. The unspoken opinion in the black community is "What have you done for me lately"?

With high unemployment and a housing crisis that is nearing the critical stage, Obama and the Democrats are attempting to avoid a bloodbath in the upcoming midterm elections on Nov. 2.

Republicans need to pick up 40 seats to win power in the House and would need to gain 10 seats in the Senate to take control from the Democrats.

Governing parties typically lose seats in U.S. midterm elections, which take place in the middle of a president's four-year term. But polls indicate that Democratic losses are likely to be particularly severe. [link]

Legendary Blues and Soul singer Solomon Burke died early today of a heart attack on a plane at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands. He was 70 years of age.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee was scheduled to perform in the Netherlands this week. Burke and his band were famous for not using set lists, instead they preferred to play whatever the audience requested.

"It's like turning back the hands of time instantly," he said on his website. "We can be in the middle of singing something from my recent 'Like A Fire' album, and they'll call out 'Stupidity' from 1957 and we're back 50 years!"

Burke started out as a preacher in Philadelphia where he was born. He soon moved on to Gospel radio and then to Atlantic Records in the 1960s, where he began his recording career.

Burke was best known for his hits "Cry to Me", and “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love”, which was re-recorded by the Rolling Stones in the 1960s and the Blues Brothers for their 1980s film of the same name.

Burke is survived by 21 children (14 daughters and 7 sons), 90 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.

Atlanta pastor Creflo Dollar considers himself a prosperity preacher, but he is nothing more than a money hungry, modern day charlatan.

Creflo Dollar is a con artist who is driven by greed. He runs his church like a cult and he uses the bible to hold his cult members spellbound.

Dollar was among the first of the mega-church preachers to begin demanding W9 forms from his parishioners so he would know exactly how much income they earned -- and how much they should be tithing.

Loyal reader Ashland says "This is not of God..."

She writes:

I dont know how authentic this is or if you have seen this, but dude is saying if you don't tithe to him you will go to hell and how he wished he could shoot those that didn't tithe right. This is not of God..

have a blessed day.

Edited:

"Prosperity preacher" Creflo Dollar moved his family out of this modest house off Cascade Road in Atlanta...




...into this mansion in Fayetteville, Georgia, thanks to the tithing of his cult followers.

The aerial image above was snapped while the house was still under construction. It now boasts a 3-story foyer, a 6 car garage (2 garages on opposite ends of the house) 2 fountains, a helicopter pad and an Olympic sized swimming pool.

A former friend, who is a member of Creflo's World Changers Ministries, once told me that his personal bodyguards (who sit in the front row of the pews) carry concealed Uzi machine guns under their jackets. Maybe those were the Uzi's that Dollar referred to in this video?

R&B crooner Usher was seen arriving at his London hotel, The Mayfair, late yesterday. Usher is in town to promote his upcoming 25-date OMG tour with Trey Songz and Miguel.


As you can see, when Usher travels abroad he doesn't pack lightly! It took two full luggage trollies to cart all his stuff into the hotel. As you recall, Usher lost $1 million worth of jewelry, clothes and Apple laptops in a brazen daylight car break-in back in January.

Usher and his former bodyguard had just left Atlanta's Hartsfield airport in a SUV loaded with all of his luggage.

The burglar struck after they parked and went inside the Verizon store on Peachtree street just south of Lenox Square Mall. Many believe the robbery was an inside job. As a result, Usher's longtime bodyguard (the tall, skinny one) was summarily let go.

Here's a list of the items Usher says was stolen in the heist:

Jewelry bag containing five watches

3 necklaces, 2 rings and six bracelets ($1 million)

2 furs and assorted clothing and shoes ($50,000)

Bottega Veneta Duffle Bag ($4,000)

2 MacBook Pros ($5,000)

Louis Vuitton Garment bag ($3,000)

Louis Vuitton laptop bag ($2,000)

2 Sony Powershot cameras ($700)

2 Flipcam video cameras ($500 a piece)

I'm sure Usher's phat insurance check was more than enough to replace all of the stolen goods.

The Internet is buzzing about a drunk woman tossing a drink on Kim Kardashian at a NYC club last night. Of course we knew it was staged even before TMZ put the pics up.

Here's what TMZ had to say:

The Kardashian clan was at Juliet last night, when a male fan asked for a pic with Kim. His girlfriend flew off the handle and threw a drink at Kim.

Scott Disick and Khloe jumped into the fracas and in the scuffle, Khloe's ring flew off and skidded across the floor. Our spies inside the club say Khloe literally dove across the floor to retrieve it ... which she eventually did.

Maybe poor Scott wasn't let in on the secret that it was just a stunt?

Actors Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez visited a photo exhibit at Marcelita French Boutique on 3rd St. in Los Angeles yesterday, to see artist Harry Abbo's New Photo Exhibit of children in India. I guess they really are dating? Too bad it won't last. Unfortunately, Halle Berry has a history of failed relationships with what she perceives to be "perfect" men who she hopes will complete her. This need to find herself leads her to look for love with the wrong types of men. She needs to find herself an ugly man who will cherish the ground she walks on. Right, ladies? (Photo compilation)

Within an hour after putting up this post yesterday of Rihanna wearing a gorgeous cream colored outfit, I received 3 emails from readers asking me to identify the designer.

I had no clue, but I knew that Allen over at UpscaleHype would:

Pop star Rihanna was seen out in Paris wearing a Altuzarra Keyhole Sweater ($875) in peach. This wool boatneck sweater features a keyhole cut-out and ribbed detailing at collar, cuffs, and hem. Her beau Matt Kemp is also seen wearing a Rag & Bone fedora ($140) in brown canvas.

Allen forgot to mention Matt's sneakers were Lanvin high-top cap toe sneakers ($730).

According to online reports, former president Bill Clinton gave $500,000 to actor and humanitarian Sean Penn for Haiti for continued earthquake relief efforts.

It's important to note that Clinton didn't even consider giving that money to singer Wyclef Jean who has proven himself to be an opportunist.

The Clinton Foundation gave $500,000 to Penn's charity, J/P Haitian Relief Organisation.

The donated money will be used to provide bridge funding for a camp in Petionville, which is run by the organisation.

Penn, 50, told People.com: 'The support of President Clinton and the Clinton Foundation is an extraordinary boost in our organisation's ability to continue its work in Haiti. [link]

Former presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush were among the first dignitaries to visit Haiti after the earthquake.

"From the beginning the Clinton Foundation staff and leadership have generously shared expertise and essential logistical support," said Penn who spent 6 months helping out in a refugee camp.

Meanwhile, Wyclef, who failed at his attempt to get his hands on Haiti's money as its president, is off somewhere making music videos and faking hospital visits for attention.

Yesterday, U.S. President Barack Obama vetoed a controversial foreclosure bill that would have benefited big banks and corporations.

Obama's refusal to sign the bill into law resonated with critics because they say the bill would have made it easier for banks to evict homeowners who fell behind on their loans.

As a result of Obama's audacious decision, Bank of America today halted foreclosures and evictions in all 50 states.

"We will stop foreclosure sales until our assessment has been satisfactorily completed," company spokesman Dan Frahm said in a statement. "Our ongoing assessment shows the basis for our past foreclosure decisions is accurate." [link]

Critics of the foreclosure bill say there is evidence that mortgage company employees and/or their lawyers used illegal tactics to sign documents in foreclosure cases, resulting in increased evictions.

State and federal officials have put pressure on the mortgage industry over worries about potential legal violations. Also Friday, PNC Financial Services Group Inc. announced it would stop foreclosures and evictions in 23 states for a month.

PNC and Bank of America join Ally Financial's GMAC Mortgage unit and JPMorgan Chase & Co. in halting foreclosures and evictions.

It might seem like such a small thing to be merciful and kind to others. But Obama, and big banks in particular, seem to have trouble finding compassion in their hearts for families who face foreclosures.

I guess all it took was for voters to threaten Hope and Change in November?

Hopefully the benevolence of bankers -- who get so much and give so little -- will carry over to next month.

According to Politico.com's columnist Ben Smith, MTV, BET and CMT are casting the audience for a town hall meeting with President Obama in Washington, D.C. next week.

The casting form, which can be found on this website, lists the qualifications for audience members.

While all the networks mentioned are seeking males & females, 18+ -- only MTV requests a recent photo of potential audience members.

Seeking—Audience Members: males & females, 18+.

To apply, email townhallaudience@mtvnmix.com and put “Town Hall” in the subject line. To ensure that the audience represents diverse interests and political views, include your name, phone number, hometown, school attending, your job and what issues, if any, you are interested in or passionate about. Also, provide a recent photo and short description of your political views. Submission deadline: Oct. 14. No pay.

Ben Smith theorizes that MTV (and Obama) prefer an audience made up of pretty people who reflect MTV's "Teen Spirit" idealism.

But I'll take his theory a step further and say that MTV (and Obama) are seeking to control not only the 'look' of the audience, but the number of blacks in it also.

Kelly McAndrew, a spokeswoman for Viacom, which owns MTV, denies that MTV is screening out ugly people, blacks or Republicans from Obama's Town Hall meeting.

"We’re just trying to get the broadest, most diverse audience possible," she said. "We want to have divergent points of view – we’re not looking for a single-view audience."

"We’re going to have a very diverse looking audience," McAndrew said. "We want gender diversity, we want ethnicity diversity, we want religious diversity, we want political view diversity. We want diversity of all kinds."

I'd be interested to know how many black applicants are turned down based on their photos.

It seems that no one at the Miami Dade Police Department reads Forbes magazine. If they did they would have immediately recognized one of the men on the cover, quarter-of-a-billionaire rap mogul Jay Z, as the gang banger illustrated on the front page of their website.

Once word began to spread, the police quickly removed the graphics, according to Miami New Times. There was no comment or explanation forthcoming from the police, according to Karen Civil.

Of course the Miami Dade Police knew who Jay Z was. We're sure they deliberately used his images to portray a gang banger, because after all, didn't Warren Buffet say the children can learn from Jay Z? Doesn't Jigga continue to glorify his former drug dealing lifestyle in his songs?

This goes to prove that it doesn't matter how many zeros Jay Z has in his portfolio, or how many Armani suits he has hanging in his closet, he will always be just another gang banger to law enforcement.

Rihanna and her beau Matt Kemp were seen shopping at Colette's in Paris, France today. Rihanna paid for the purchases herself, which is consistent with her independent nature.

You probably won't read past this first paragraph. So you will probably be one of those confused Kool aid drinkers who won't know what hit you come November, when the Democrats are gutted in the midterm elections.

U.S. President Barack Obama is painfully aware of what might take place in November. Unlike the arrogance and indifference he displayed in his first 2 years in office, Obama is now behaving like a president who realizes he has lost his base.

That is why this next bit of news should come as no surprise: according to Politico.com, Obama plans to target black voters in a rally.

For the second time in as many weeks, President Barack Obama returns to a favorite setting Thursday – a big rally on a college campus.

But Bowie State University, where the president will appear, is a far different setting than the University of Wisconsin, where a get-out-the-vote rally last week drew 26,000 supporters.

The historically black Maryland college is much smaller, and officials expect around 5,000 people to attend the rally. Source

In 2008, Obama displayed his arrogance by not courting the black vote. He assumed correctly that black people would vote for him because he was black.

Back then Obama avoided going near anything even remotely resembling a black voter rally. Not only did Obama not want to be seen by white America as a back president -- he didn't want to be seen as your president.

But all that has changed now.

This go 'round Obama doesn't enjoy the comfort of knowing you will be there for him. He's afraid you won't.

Obama knows that in 2008 the turnout of registered black voters was only slighter higher in 2008 than in 2004. Now he needs you more than ever. In 2008 you didn't count in his grand scheme of things. But today you do.

Narcissists are astoundingly cold, unemotional, unsympathetic people. The only time you see a spark in their eyes is when they want something from you -- such as your vote.

Since they grew up having no sense of self, they see other people as simply an extension of themselves. Like an arm or a leg.

In 2008 Obama didn't rally the black vote -- not even for sentimental reasons. An aide has recently described Obama as "the most unsentimental man I've ever met." Expect that to change now that Obama really needs your vote.
