Here’s the deal with Donald Trump. All his previous announcements to run for President were publicity. You may be saying, “no kidding,” but allow me to elaborate.
After years of oppression and discrimination that black people have endured, a white woman has benefited from these atrocities. Born and raised as a white person, Rachel Dolezal who’s the President of the NAACP chapter in Spokane, Washington, appears to genuinely believe she’s actually a black woman.
The loss of National Treasures evokes thoughts of one’s own mortality and legacy. THEY DID THEIR WORK; THEY’VE LEFT THEIR MARKS ON THE PLANET; TOUCHED THE LIVES OF MILLIONS! How much time do we/ I have left? What will we/ I leave behind? My/ our child (ren) and/ or future children? This blog, a Facebook post? I believe those of us still here… STILL HAVE STUFF TO DO.
Some television shows celebrate their 200th episode. Unless I’ve completely lost it, this is my 200th blog — no, I haven’t lost it, it is my 200th blog. 20 blogs per page, at 10 pages, equals 200 right? 20 X 10 = 200. Generally T-V programs will review and/ or reflect on shows past, when celebrating the 200th show. That’s very appropriate for television, and I suppose I could touch on a few of my favorite blogs over the past five years, but I believe speaking on public figures that are anti-FUNK or just plain FUNKED UP may be more intriguing.
The Museum Of UnCut Funk will never get enough of our newly re-eleced Black President of the United States. As we continue to document his presidency in our Funky President blog and our Barack Obama comic book collection, we will also continue to look for artists who create the hippest and koolest portrayals of President Barack Obama. Ben Heine is definitely one of these artists.
Radio pioneer Hal Jackson will be laid to rest this Thursday, May 31st at 11am.

The Museum Of UnCut Funk has taken a very different approach to collecting items that are relevant to our cultural experience. As children of the 1970’s, we are dedicated to collecting artifacts from what we believe is one of the greatest decades ever. We have also been blessed to bear witness to the election of the first Black President in American history, Barack Obama, one of the greatest historic events in our lifetime. As President Obama is also a child of the 1970’s, it makes sense for The Museum of UnCut Funk to collect artifacts that highlight his Presidential achievement, in our own unique way. Thus we have added The Barack Obama Comic Book Collection to our archive.
