1.) I think it needs to be said that it's really weird to know that there's some white dude named Massa who's reportedly sexually harasses his subordinates. I can't even say the dude's name without wincing. I feel like Cedric in Kings of Comedy. "I'm a grown-ass man, dog. Ain't no way I'm calling some white dude 'Massa'" Of course one of our commenters picked up on it:
If he goes to jail, will the Post headline be 'Massa heading to the Big House' ? Did his aides resent 'Running errands for Massa all day'? It never ends.
To which I might add, in the best Negro dialect I can summon, (like thick Mo-lasses) "Massa is good white folk" and/or "Don't believe them Yankee lies about Massa."
2.) Jon Stewart did a great job on Massa and Glenn Beck.
