Comedian Bernie Mac ruffled some feathers at a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama Friday night when some of his jokes apparently crossed the line.

The 50-year-old star of “The Bernie Mac Show” poked fun at menopause, sexual infidelity and promiscuity, and dropped some rather salty language during his 10 minute routine at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Chicago.

“My little nephew came to me and he said, ‘Uncle, what’s the difference between a hypothetical question and a realistic question?'” Mac said. “I said, I don’t know, but I said, ‘Go upstairs and ask your mother if she’d make love to the mailman for $50,000.'”

According to the Associated Press, the punch line drew an angry response from at least one person in the audience, who said it was offensive to women.

“It’s not funny. Let’s get Barack on,” shouted a member of the crowd.

Obama took the stage 15 minutes later and tried to smooth things over.

“We can’t afford to be divided by race. We can’t afford to be divided by region or by class and we can’t afford to be divided by gender, which by the way, that means, Bernie, you’ve got to clean up your act next time,” Obama said. “This is a family affair. By the way, I’m just messing with you, man.”

Obama’s campaign released a more formal rebuke of Mac’s words in the following statement from spokeswoman Jen Psaki: “Sen. Obama told Bernie Mac that he doesn’t condone these statements and believes what was said was inappropriate.”


The closest thing Black America has to a royal family is the King family, the descendants of Martin Luther King Jr.

Unfortunately the family legacy is being tarnished because they’re embroiled in a divisive dispute over their father’s estate.

Bernice King and Martin Luther King III filed a lawsuit Thursday to force their younger brother, Dexter King, to open the books of MLK Jr.’s estate.

The lawsuit claims that Dexter King, the estate’s administrator, is refusing to provide his two siblings with documents concerning the estate’s operations. That includes financial records, contracts and other documents, the lawsuit said.

The AP reports that Jock Smith, an attorney representing the elder siblings in the case, said Friday that the decision to sue their brother was not an easy one.

“This was very heartfelt on their part and very, very taxing on them to have to do this,” Smith said. “They are not happy that they had to bring this action. All they’re asking for is … to be included in their daddy’s legacy.”


Music Producer/Composer Spud Too Tight /p/k/a Stephen Counce – recently signed a Publishing/Administration Deal with Missing Link Music – Hoboken NJ, one of the music industry’s leading music publishing and copyright administration companies covering all genres of music from R&B and Rock to Hip-Hop to Jazz and all styles in between. Their client roster includes songwriters, producers and artists who have written for: Madonna, Elvis Presley, James Brown, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Britney Spears,Luther Vandross, P. Diddy, Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, DMX, Ja Rule, Public Enemy and a catalog legacy of many more. They have facilitated soundtrack placements with Dreamworks, Miramax, Sony Pictures, Paramount Pictures, 20th Century Fox, ESPN, MTV, VH1, UPN, and NBC to name a major few.

Spud Too Tight’s strong musical desire to master keyboard playing and technical production was inspired by the New Jack Swing era that was heavily aired on Atlanta’s R&B radio stations while he was residing with his mother just north of downtown Atlanta. He practiced, studied and began playing keyboards in his uncle’s music studio. With many years of navigating in the studio, he was commissioned to produce smooth jazz jingles and commercials along with original music contributions for a national docudrama, and his gift of music flourished to ink a deal with a major A List music publisher.

Sean O’Neal of Missing Link Music says of Spud Too Tight, “While Missing Link Music usually takes on artists and producers that have a few more credits than Spud, you have to recognize extraordinary talent when you see it. His music has a fullness to it that you usually only see with extremely well established and highly regarded musicians. Everybody at Missing Link believes in Spud and knows what he is capable of and that is why we did not hesitate at all in getting him on board.” He will be involved in film music projects, commericals and producing artists. Spud’s mission accordingly was to develop a savvy and talented unsigned artist/writer and produce a hit R&B song. In his state of the art music studio; Mission Accomplished.
