Mad Man-Hood and Accidental Racism(t)

I posted about this on facebook several months ago. I guess people are still talking about Jon Hamm's rather large endowment.  But, he wants y'all to stop looking at his junk and watch his show.  I must admit I have never seen Mad Men and really don't have any intentions to watch the show. There is no longer an incentive to watch, because from what I have read online (whether it's true or not) he has been asked to wear underwear while on set in those tight 60's era suits. One website site even reported that it was becoming a problem on set.  Seriously!?!? I had to laugh.  But, regardless, he has a right to feel the way he does.  I will agree with him that making a Tumblr page dedicated is a little much.  But, at the same time I think it's a compliment. Albeit, a seedy one.
This is what Jon told Rolling Stone about how much attention his private parts were getting, "But it is a little rude. It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have - a prurience."

A Daily Beast insider shared that even the promotional pictures and posters needed to be air-brushed so not to offend anyone. (see their story here) But, you know the paparazzi always gets their man or manhood in this case. And while on a shopping trip with his girlfriend they captured Jon's, not so elusive, trouser snake.

My advice to John is to wear underwear or wear a jock. Yeah, it sucks to be all objectified by the public.  But, like he agreed I guess it's better to be called out for this rather than the opposite. You got the right!

Did you know Jon was on Sesame Street? If you close your eyes and listen to the video, this whole large penis thing  makes this video hilarious.

Switching gears from accidental exposure to the latest song by Brad Paisley ft. LL Cool J, Accidental Racist. Ain't that a title!  Everyone in the blogosphere has been blogging, tweeting and posting about this song.  The whole country rap duo thing didn't appeal to me at first, but after all the hoopla I had to hear it.  I must say it's different.  And at times a little comical.  I know this is a conversation that has to be had between the black and white races. But, I don't think this was the way it should have been delivered.  All I can say is, it was an effort.  Notice I didn't say a good one. I mean lyrics like "Dear Mr. White Man, I wish you understood. What the world is really like when you're livin' in the hood. Just because my pants are saggin' doesn't mean I'm up to no good", Isn't some of LL's best work.

I am okay with people having their own perspective.  But, some of the words in the song don't even apply to my world.  Have I been a victim of racism? Yes.  Have I had my own preconceived notions about someone who wore a rebel t-shirt? Yes, I have.  To me this song exploits some of the stereotypes in today's world pertaining to black people. Sagging Jeans.. Gold Chains.. etc.. Because in my world, I do not wear sagging jeans nor do I have fat gold chains around my neck.  I doubt we will be hearing this in any of the hip hop clubs or boot scoot and bogeying to it at the next square dance.  If it was attention that these two artist wanted, although they didn't need it, they definitely found what they were looking for.  Too bad it's left a sour taste in most mouths and ears.

You can here the entire song below. Mess!!!
