small brush shouldn't fuck with big timber

Death's Door, the view from the Spanish announcers table: down in front

down in front

Well it looks like somebody’s kid got told to shit the fuck up because they had their head up their ass.

I’m talking about this big fancy hoo-doo that went down this past weekend in Miami for Black Enterprise magazine.

According to my many inside sources, funnyman Eddie Griffin was hired as part of the entertainment. And when it came his turn to do his thing on stage Friday night, he started dropping the N-word like it was fuckin going out of style.

Now at this big fancy hoo-doo was a literal who’s-who of black crème de la crust types among others who weren’t digging Eddie’s shit one bit.

Everything came to a head when Eddie asked the crowd. “Why are our Black leaders telling us to stop using the N-word?”

That’s when his mike went dead and Earl Graves, the publisher of Black Enterprise magazine and the one who hired Eddie’s signifying ass, stepped up on stage.

"We will not allow our culture to go backwards. We will pay Mr. Griffin all that we owe him but we will not allow him to finish the show if that's the way he's going to talk."

And ole Eddie got told to unass the stage.

I’d like to think that Earl got all old school on Eddie and whispered in his ear that he was gonna fuck Eddie’s shit up if he didn’t step off, but of course that probably never happened. Right?

And to be fair this was Eddie Griffin after all, who’s known for his excessive use of the N-word in his routine.
It’s like what I always tell people. “Don’t let the fuckin dog out of the yard if you know he’s gonna bite”.

t doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Eddie ain’t right and that he’s not gonna behave. So even though Eddie Griffin’s a local boy from Kansas City, I have to say he did shit the bed on this one.

Plus if the truth be known I stopped digging Eddie ever since he came out with that stupid, stupid sitcom “Malcolm & Eddie” that was based in Kansas City. I still think someone owes me TV money from that fuckup.

I had the same opinion of this - I'm not a huge fan, but come on, it's Eddie Griffin. What the hell did they EXPECT him to do?!?
