An Interesting Bit of Trivia .... - April 29th, 2012, 10:10 AM



Apparently in the 1950s, a popular nightclub, Mocambo would not book Ella Fitzgerald because she was black. Fortunately for Ella, she had a powerful and unlikely benefactor Marilyn Monroe.
“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt…it was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she promised she would take a front table every night. She told him - and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status - that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman - and ahead of her time and she didn’t know it.” - Ella Fitzgerald

Ah yes, those happy golden days of yore when Hollywood celebrities did something besides clutter the headlines with the intimate details of their private lives.

“We, as a nation, are hero killers. If George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were alive today, we would be so consumed with their personal lives and their addictions and frailties that I doubt they would ever be allowed to be great.”
-Karen Hunter, Stop Being Niggardly (and Nine Other Things Black People Need to Stop Doing)





Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's, and to God what is God's, and beware those who get one confused with the other.

“In many ways the evidence of our faith is found in our ability to control our tongue (or our keyboard)."
-Adam Hamilton, Seeing Gray in a World of Black and White

Marilyn did that? I had no idea. Thanks for the history lesson. Neat.

We may not have cell phones these days if not for Hedy Lamarr, and she dropped out of school. Too bad most celebrities these days aren't interested in being that smart.

But let's face it, the club owner would have let a monkey sing if Monroe promised to be there every night.

Me neither but that doesn't take away from what Monroe did for Ella. Good for her and thanks for sharing the story PureX.





Well this is fun isn't it?

True enough, though on the flip side blatant racism of this stripe wouldn't be tolerated today at least...

Doesn't the Constitution protect the rights of citizens to be racist?

Yes, it provides people the right to be rubes, hicks, bigots, idiots, fools, and buffoons. Having the right to do something doesn't make it the right thing to do.

That's the beauty of it, Bill: when an idiot or all-American butthead proclaims that he has the "right" to act like a waste of sperm, we can correctly point out that self-discipline should probably enter the equation. Too many people confuse reckless stupidity or acting like a sphincter with "freedom."

Too bad the Op's interests weren't a bit more comprehensive, race, homosexuality, I figure his TV's rabbit ears only pick up BET, LOGO, and MSNBC.

... more shlock from the shlock meister! hicks is code for whitey, you're a goober in the first degree, not much depth to your vocabulary - just like I pointed out in the other thread, it doesn't take you long to type the word bigot in most of your posts.
