Dr. Regina Benjamin: Big Momma’s White House

Well it seems that the love affair with fat, black women is over. Dr. Regina Benjamin, who is slightly overweight, has come under fire for being rotund. Why? Because she’s up for the Surgeon General’s position and should offer a better visual representation.  Wow. After predecessors like Dr. C. Everett Koop, we want our 2nd African-American woman Surgeon General to look like Halle Berry. Awwwwwww. How cute? The fact that folks would rather focus on her one flaw (if indeed being slightly overweight is a flaw since the average American woman is a size 14) is quite tragic. You know you are truly qualified when people have to sink that low to find something “wrong” with a candidate who is so “right.” Double chin up Dr. Benjamin. You pretty much rock and anyone who doesn’t think so because you’re a little chubby, can kick rocks.

    Nsenga, thank you for this one…”kick rocks” eh? Okay. As usual, you are precise in your assessment of what’s really going on here.
    As I recall, Dr. Elder was no skinny-minny, but then she had the audacity to talk about masturbation. Remember?
    Keep up the great work “N.”

      You’re right. They treated Dr. Elder like she stole something when she was only telling the truth.
