The Fight for a Man's Rights
In all the hoopla surrounding the elections, Ed Bradley's death from cancer (or was it AIDS?) and whatever else happened this week, I've been remiss in mentioning the fact that Britney Spears is now seeking divorce from Kevin Federline, citing irreconcilable differences.
Interestingly enough, I actually heard about this on the radio the other day during the elections. Of course the conspiracy theorist in me couldn't help but think the timing of this announcement was somehow meant to distract people - especially young people - from voting.
As revealed in Fahrenheit 9/11, Britney Spears is a hardcore, stay the course Republican. If she's willing to risk her fanbase to go on TV and encourage kids to stick with Bush Mengele no matter what, it doesn't seem outside the realm of possibility that Karl Rove could have her announce her divorce on election.
I'm not sure what Kevin Federline's politics are, but you'd have to assume he's a Democrat, given the fact that he's essentially a black man. In addition to the two he has with Britney, he's got his share of "outside" kids and no real source of income other than his allowance from Britney.
Does K-Fed have to get money from Brit-Brit to go take care of his other kids? That's some ol' Bobby Brown shit if I ever saw it. In fact, when I heard Britney Spears was dropping K-Fed like a bad habit, I couldn't help but be reminded of how Whitney Houston let her handlers talk her into dropping Bobby after all these years, as if he was the real problem.
Indeed the key issue here seems to be that the public just plain doesn't like the idea of a black man getting ahead through marriage. It's not enough that a brother can hardly do shit else in this country, but god forbid he finds a broad with a check to lay up with. The idea alone is just too damaging to the white collective psyche.
Think about it: would Bobby Brown's career have been ruined if Whitney Houston was some broke crackhead bitch like she is now, while his career was still hot off of Don't Be Cruel? If not, I don't think you can chalk this up to anything other than racism as well as predatory feminism run amok.
Here's hoping K-Fed comes out of this with hella alimony.
