CNN Celebrates Old Black Lady With Delightful Musical Slurs

by Jim Newell

You can just see how excited CNN was to do this, to celebrate the Journalistic Scoop of a 103-year-old black lady still driving her car with hip-hop rap lyrics, about driving cars! But then that rap song included the word “nigga,” so CNN’s fluff story about a nice old lady driving a car somehow managed to be one in which they call an old black person the n-word. [YouTube]

Yo,CNN – Stop snitchin’ (on yourself)

stew May 26, 2010 at 6:09 pm

Have they “made it up to” us yet? Details!

stew May 26, 2010 at 6:13 pm

This is quickly becoming the funniest fucking thing I’ve seen in months. “Ain’t no punk ass nigga be trippin’.” Indeed!

Not_So_Much May 26, 2010 at 6:13 pm

CNN is headquartered in Atlanta, so this is perfectly acceptable.

Moonbatting_Average May 26, 2010 at 6:17 pm

Pfft, everyone knows 103 year-old black ladies listen to Pharcyde when they are out driving:

Please, don’t pull me over Mr. Officer, don’t pull me over Mr. Officer, please

Can we Taser Rick Sanchez for this?

smitallica May 26, 2010 at 6:17 pm

103-year-old bitches ain’t shit.

iwillsavethispatient May 26, 2010 at 6:21 pm

CNN please!

There are two types of network news, there’s regular network news and there’s CNN. CNN gives all network news a bad name.

Larry King probably edited the piece without his hearing aid and thought the song said “Shiva”. He was said to reply that he was sorry for her loss.

Clankie May 26, 2010 at 6:23 pm

Best fucking CNN ever. Don’t they know that it’s the honky grandma that b trippin’? Did you know that the gay porn about Levi Johnston has a cameo from Nailin’ Palin’s titular star?

what a great note to end the video on.

I’d love to do blunts with the old gal.

O.O.G.* is literally ghostridin’ the whip! RESPECT.

“I thought you liked rap music. ”

“I did, but that was before I realized it had words.”

“Wait a minute, you didn’t know rap had words? Why did you think it was called rap? ”

“I thought it was because of the rhythm. You know, rap-rap, rappity-tap. “

carlgt1 May 26, 2010 at 7:04 pm

umm, so what lame CNN story would that tune be appropriate for?

“…but 103 year old white ladies drive LIKE THIS.”

Joehoya May 26, 2010 at 7:38 pm

That bitch is straight outta Compton…

Of course, back then, Compton was mostly orange groves.

[re=586174]Extemporanus[/re]: If those space-age, robot-controlled scooters are in the HCB, can we call them ObamaCarts?
And was grandma in a Union that gave her Cadillac Health Care? Shit, OOG.

bitchincamaro May 26, 2010 at 8:01 pm

Haha. Smoove an’ nicely, CNN!


Sharkey May 26, 2010 at 8:03 pm

[re=586156]stew[/re]: Ah so that’s why they called her Miss Flamer. Wait, is that actually her name?

I like how the white bitch tries to get all hippity – since that’s how all black people talk…

[re=586170]TexanMary[/re]: Word.
Those are some seriously jacked up brows. She needs to throw some gang signs with that shit.

“We’re working very hard to make up for it” is code for “We are scourging the control room tech who pushed the wrong button, and preparing him for crucifixion.”

Oldskool May 26, 2010 at 8:16 pm

Wonder who complained. It’s hard to keep track. There’s a huge monument to the Confederacy maybe 15 min from CNN that creeped me out every time I drove by and I’m so white Hubble keeps pointing toward me.

southern mark smith May 26, 2010 at 8:53 pm

One of these days, I’d like to see a CNN clip where Kyra Phillips is *not* apologizing for something.

assistant/atlas May 26, 2010 at 8:58 pm

Um…. at least they didn’t use the Thong Song? Or something?

I’m white so it’s very difficult for me to make rap jokes that don’t involve Vanilla Ice.

Finally, they’ve identified St. Ronnie’s infamous welfare Cadillac!

I got bitches in the newsroom ’bout to go on
But the news cycle don’t start ’til six in the morn.

I’ll be rolling useless clips, payin’ no attention
Sippin’ on Diet Coke…

Say what?

I totally saw her in “Don’t Be A Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood!”

schadenfreudian slip May 26, 2010 at 9:52 pm

how do I embed videos all up in this bitch?

The car is even the same!

crumpet May 27, 2010 at 12:50 am

[re=586248]Jim89048[/re]: Exactly. And the lady still has her Cadillac and looks spry enough to dance on Ronnie’s grave. There IS something like justice in this pathetic country.

Beanball May 27, 2010 at 4:35 am

I had that bitch. Shit was cash.

plowman May 27, 2010 at 9:10 am

Or just play music that offends or satirizes the subject of the piece every time. Obviously blacks get hip-hop w/ lots of nigga and ho. If it’s white folks, play Lawrence Welk polkas. Asians get the ‘Siamese Cat’ song regardless of origin while Islamic types get the ‘Snake Charmer’ song (doubly offensive as written by a Jew). When covering Israel just play Wagner.
