Not fulfilling the dream

Since we're subversives (haters, for short), the First Lady and I have grown weary of people claiming that Barack Obama's election means the "dream has been fulfilled."

In fact, the First Lady has recently taken to pointing out the many ways in which we - the people - are "not fulfilling the dream." Not MLK's dream, not yours, not your mama's, not anyone else's. We've truly got a long way to go.

So consider this new - and hopefully, regular - feature on this blog to be a reminder that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was not simply speaking of the ascendancy of one gifted man among us. He was striving for a day when the rising tide lifted all boats.

With that, let me introduce you to Ju. He "been had money":

Sigh. I'm SMH even as I type this down.

Since this idea belongs to the First Lady, she's got first dibs. If she ever follows through on her threat to start up her own blog, this feature belongs to her. In that case, I'll simply refer to this regular item as "Bad Understanding," a phrase my mother uses to cover people like the one you just watched above. No explanation is really necessary.

Why? This HAS to stop. We have to start educating our people on what to do with money. He has all that cash on him now, but if you come back in a few years, he'll have lost it all or wasted it by spinning rims or something. I can't figure this out. SMH also.

You know, it's only going to get worse from here. Where's the DROP Squad when you really need them?

Even Mantan Moreland thinks Ju is embarrassing.
