Ugly Betty Pleasant Gets Even Uglier: She Says She Owns The Black Community

We finally found someone uglier
than Aunt Esther
For some reason that always rascally and never classy Betty Pleasant mouth-runner at one of Los Angeles' litter box liner throwaways thinks we're excited she's back from whatever trip home to Hades she went on.  And before she even gets in the door she manages to tag everyone from Steve Cooley to the LA Times as racists.

But Betty is up in arms that we outed two of her buddies a hack non-profit operator who has previously committed ethics rules violations and a nutty anti-transit gadfly who was arrested for allegedly beating the crap out of his girlfriend.

Betty has a longtime major woody for Councilman Bernard Parks.  Probably because he's the only politician in South Central who doesn't kiss her ass, which she has been known often to ask folks to do.  Like the little kid who saw dead people, Stupid Betty sees Parks everywhere.  And she thinks Parks is responsible for our story.

If Betty knew how to do anything but run her mouth she'd know that all the information we got on poverty purveyor Forescee Hogan-Rowles is easily available on the web, on City websites.  All the questionable contracts (of course minus the usual supporting documents for some unknown reason) and her ethics fine.

That Damien Goodman was arrested in the reported attack on his girlfriend (because she apparently didn't have $20 for him to buy some food) is known in the community.  Police arrested the guy.  No one made that up Betty.  And we offered to Damien BEFORE we printed the story to give his side.  To date he has never responded.

Racist Betty goes even further in suggesting that a white blogger can not cover things that happen politically amongst people who happen to be African American.  In Betty's words "when it comes to Black communities in this city I own ’em. He’s out of his league and he needs to stay where he belongs."  I didn't know communities could be owned but for those who are Black if you didn't know Betty owns you, I guess you do know.

For sure Betty will call me a racist for being critical of someone who is Black.  And maybe she's right since I'm always down on lots of Black people such as Tom LeBong, Bill Rosendahl, Greig Smith, Carmen the Clown, Steve Cooley, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Brown.

Time for Betty to get a reality show!

Congrats Higby, for having brass ones to call out this piece of shit for the race-baiting hate-monger that she is.

How long will it be before Ugly Betty jumps on the Mitrice Richardson bandwagon? You know, the unseemly lawsuits that have been filed against the County over Mitrice's release from custody in Malibu.

Do you think Betty has the brains to figure out which of the two lawsuits she should support?

On the one hand there's the lawsuit filed by the mother who couldn't be bothered to bail her f'd in the head daughter out of jail for stealing a sushi dinner.

On the other, there's the lawsuit filed by the biological father, who enjoyed doing "typical dad-daughter" things, at least that's what he said in a recent interview with John Philips. Pity Philips didn't ask "when was the last time you did one of those 'typical dad-daughter' things?"

It' all looks like a very unseemly money grab by people who never heard the word 'responsibility.' It is therefore right up Ms. Unpleasant's street. But it's also a huge dilemma for Ugly Betty; she has to use her street smarts to calculate which one of the lawsuits gonna hit pay dirt?

Perhaps Ugly Betty should enlist the counsel and advice of Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson? OMG, another dilemma for her!

This post is a classic.
Love the photo of Aunt Esther.
Betty Pleasant called you "Son of Sam".
That's funny.

But her best line was months ago when she said "Tell him (Higby) that he can kiss my ass!"

Her ORIGINAL quote was "Tell him (Higby) that he can kiss my BLACK ass!!"

But I edited out the word "black" because I felt it was unnecessary.

And Joe B. would get on his high horse about racism.

But facts are troubling things.

Pleasant is a racist.
She defines everything by race.

KABC newsman Sandy Wells was introducing me to someone at a party once and said "This is Son of Sam."

That's twice this week that Higby name drops about going to a KABC party.

Funny, Higby seems to need to assure everyone that he is worthy of an invite to a down-in-the-ratings radio station party. KABC hasn't been good since they dumped Michael Jackson, oh, uh, I mean, since he "retired."

Speaking of KABC, anyone noticed what a good job John Philips is doing in the morning standing in for the vastly more expensive Peter Tilden? Of course, if KABC would bring Doug McIntyre back for the morning show, that would be great.

Philips is good. I switch over to KABC because I couldn't listen to another day of Handel's ranting. I don't know how his talented co-hosts can put up with it. You can feel the tension.

Aunt Esther really was not ugly at all. What made her beautiful was her lively and fun personality.

You can not say that about Betty.

The smear against Bernard Parks continues, but now the LA Weekly is joining Ms. Unpleasant: http://blogs.laweekly.com/informer/politics/bernard-parks-residence/

They've got it all wrong. Parks always lived in the 2nd Supervisorial District. He just made a simple mistake and forgot to change his homeowner's exemption from his house in Windsor Hills. Probably only got about $7,000 a year in an extra tax break. And though he apparently did commit perjury by putting the wrong address on his candidacy papers, it is not really a big deal since both addresses are in the Supervisorial District. Stop the witch hunt against Parks!
