R.Kelly’s publicist quits.

R Kelly

SandraRose is reporting that R Kelly’s publicist Regina Daniels has seen the urine light and had more than enough as his spokesperson, and officially resigned back in August.

“Friends and Colleagues – After careful consideration and counsel, I have decided to formally announce my resignation as publicist for R&B artist R. Kelly.

My resignation was effective as of August 28, 2007. Throughout the course of my 25 years as a publicist, I have prided myself on loyalty, respect and professionalism. It saddens me that I was not always shown those same courtesies during my 14 year tenure as Mr. Kelly’s publicist.

Though I have a great appreciation for Mr. Kelly as an artist, there are some lines that should never be crossed professionally or personally. Mr. Kelly crossed a line that forever altered the scope of our relationship. For this reason I made the decision to resign.

My husband, music retailer George Daniels, has also disassociated himself from Mr. Kelly.”

Assistant secretary of homeland security for immigration Julie Myers is a racist!!!

Julie Myers

Wow with the tons and tons of racist acts being committed by public officials every day, that MVP race for “Racist of the Year” is becoming a tight one. And we thought Bill O’Reilly was a sure win…Julie Myers and State Rep Carla Blanchard Dartez are gaining on you. You better start slinging some more Sylvia’s comments.

Just when it appeared Julie Myers had cleared every hurdle in her quest to officially become the nation’s top immigration official, a dreadlocked wig and a prisoner’s outfit could cost her the job.

Myers, director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ran into trouble earlier this month after she and two other agency managers gave the “most original” costume award to a white employee who came to the agency’s Halloween party dressed as an escaped prisoner with dreadlocks and darkened skin. (SMH)

The incident drew complaints of racial insensitivity and a fake ass apology from Myers. It also cast doubt on whether she’ll get a confirmation vote before the end of the year, when her original appointment expires.

Myers has apologized repeatedly for the costume incident, saying she was “shocked and horrified” to learn the employee had altered his skin color and conceding “it was inappropriate for me to recognize any individual wearing an escaped prisoner costume.”

Bullish…If she was shocked and horrified she would not have still given the dude the award! Aren’t you just so tired of all of these fake ass apologies??? We are. Look you did what you did and you feel how you feel don’t apologize now because that position you want as immigration secretary is on the line. We don’t believe you you need more people. Yep looks like another job for Bishop Weeks….
