You KNOW what NEEDS to be done?

I think Black women should make a "tribute" character to gay men in the SAME vein of Shirley Q. Liquor because I'd love to see how many gay men would fucking shit bricks over it.

And before anyone says "two wrongs don't make a right"--you just acknowledged Knipps' crappy show as a wrong.

haha

i think shirley is very awsome and she shouldnt be banned so go fuck yourselves

Today, with the development of science and technology, the internet is beginning to play a more and more important role in our life. More and more people are staring to use the intent. Thanks to the intent which make me lives so wonderful.

I certainly understand your points of concern about this character Shirley Q. Liqor.

However, with all the truly ugly and hurtful racism in the country (and the world), why is this one rather minor individual singled out? I am not condoning his act, but to be honest, I had never heard of the man until I read some complaint about his character on another website and then Googled him and saw this site. Don't you think that this website and any similar ones which are filled with links to his performances simply act to give the man free publicity?

For the record, I am gay and white, and I think fairly "hip" to what is popular in the gay community, and I can say, even though I cannot nor do not wish to speak for all gay people, I really do not think Shirley Q. is very popular in the gay community, let alone in the much, much larger mainstream community. In short, this is a rather marginal fellow in a marginal community. If he wants to be a buffoon for handful of folks, let him be one! As the real civil rights activist, Eleanor Roosevelt, said, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." This man is so not worth the effort, and he certainly isn't worth this sort of shrine built in his honor (trust me, people like him thrive on negative attention).

If you really dislike Shirley Q. Liquor, the best thing you could do to hurt her, would be to ignore her. Let her little high school act fade away.

I smell some jealousy and an uptight publicity hungry half-retarded twat who is so desperate to MATTER that her cause, despite it's obvious double standards becoming evident everytime she opens her fat mouth to judge Knipp, is a lost one- and she can't even see it. Last time I checked, the First Amendment was still part of the Constitution, and I am reasonably certain that no one is being FORCED to she Shirley's act, so my question is : Why can't this bitch get a life and just NOT GO SEE HER??? Seems obvious to me. I know Knipp isnt racist, and neither am I, for that matter, BUT IF HE WERE, I WOULD DEFEND HIS RIGHT TO EXPRESS THAT THROUGH NONVIOLENT MEANS, including speech, characterizations, or what-the-hell-ever. GO FIND A WORTHY CAUSE and leave Shirley Alone!!!

Who runs this blog? Who supports them?

How about all the Black comedians the portray White Americans in a negative ways? Dave Chappelle dressed in White Face.This is ok for black people to make fun of whites because of the past? Do you really want to move on and heal, or just let comedy be comedy? Or should we live in a society like nazi Germany? With no Free Speech.

Homygah!

"And I’ll add, we’ll just laugh at the fat white gay man who is passing judgment."

I smell a double standard! So, its wrong for Shirley Q. Liqour to depict the stereotype of a ghetto black woman for the sake of humour, but its ok to make fun of someone for being white, gay and fat? Youre such a hypocrite.

Let's be honest..

Jasmyne Cannick's is a PUBLICITY WHORE.

She is a high school drop-out who started working the streets at age 15.

No one is interested in ANY of her opinions, unless it involves Shirley Q/Knipps.

I laughed so hard at this comment:

Mel Reeves, a black Miami activist, was insulted when shown a video clip of Shirley Q. Liquor portraying a stewardess for "Ebonics Airlines," in which the black-owned plane crashed from ineptitude. "That insinuates that black people can't run successful businesses."

Let's do business the "AFRICAN WAY: -"

They say it was not even one protester at the Shirley Q. show in Miami and that she had black women as back up dancers and singers.

Shirley Q. Liquor Quotes

  • "I'm gonna burn me up some chitlins and put some ketchup on there and aks Jesus to forgive my sins." Shirley also shops at "Kmark," eats "Egg McMuffmans," visits her "gynechiatrist" and just loves "homosexicals."

    "On the fifth day of Kwanzaa, my check came in the mail/AFDC!/Thank you, lawd!/Come on, kids/Let's go to the store/For some collard greens, ham hocks and cheese!"

    "Baby, we was extremely povertied this week. My check had not came on time. Oooh, we was stretchin' it, honey. I aks them to keep my power on. I said, 'A woman have got to have some fans runnin' down here in this heat.' "
