Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder

Yesterday, news broke that Attorney General of the U.S. Eric Holder suffered chest pains, palpitations (rapid heartbeat) and shortness of breath during a Justice Dept. meeting. My initial thought was that Holder suffered a panic attack. Especially after it was revealed that doctors gave him medication to “return his heartbeat to normal” then discharged him. If his condition was all that serious he would have been hospitalized, if only to monitor him overnight.

Of course, at 63, he could also be diagnosed with any number of heart ailments such as Ischemic Cardiomyopathy, Coronary Artery Disease, Angina, Congestive Heart failure, mild heart attack, etc. But based on his symptoms — and the fact that hundreds of black pastors are calling for his impeachment — I think he suffered a panic attack.

Apparently, The Hufffington Post does, too.

Pharrell Williams

Mega-producer Pharrell Williams is feeling the heat for neglecting to feature a black woman on the cover of his new album, titled simply “G I R L”.

The cover features Williams, 40. posing with three women — 1 Caucasian, 1 Hispanic and 1 LSLH. All four are clad in bathrobes and dark sunglasses.

Williams, who recently married a mixed race woman, said, “The woman I’m standing closest to, she is black and she’s been a friend of mine for a long time.”

I beg to differ. It is ignorant and racist to assume that people of mixed parentage are black. This is the type of backwards thinking that is reinforced by people who still believe in the archaic one drop rule.

Deen, 67, is being given a second chance by corporate sponsors after she was unceremoniously dumped by the Food Network for being racially naive in these changing times.

“I’ve learned a lot,” said Deen in a cover story of this week’s People magazine.

“I feel like ’embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out,” she said, referring to gay NFL draft prospect Michael Sam.

Deen continued: “He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying.”
