Trump’s America, yeah . . . they’re sooo-desirous of
“Great White Hopes” - it’s honestly disturbing,
extremely disturbing . . . to say the very, very least.

the National Football League is proving to be a ugly-reflection of
the vast-array of ills and woes plaguing American culture: racism,
sexism and economic elitism are continuous and ever-present elements
of all the “controversial” headlines emanating from the
NFL soap opera.
Black-balled and listed Colin Kaepernick,
who’s taken a Nobel-like 1968 Mexico City Olympic's Smith n’
Carlos “Black Power” stand . .. and paid dearly - with
his NFL career. The Plantation Big Daddies have deemed him far too
uppity and ungrateful they let him play their game.
over to Dallas or the Kansas City Chiefs and we’ve had another
woman-beater exposed to the world. Move-on to the astronomical if not
obscene revenue and salaries - which are reflective of a society with
misplaced priorities and values - the examples of “isms”
is endless . . .
However this post-season weekend we’ve
got a barn-burner before our gazed-over fanatically over-interested
eyes - the Kansas City Chiefs (Warlords) stand on the eve of battling
the Indianapolis Colts - this is a contest which will also provide
these so-called “United States of America with a vivid, black
and white “selfie” summation of an issue which is at the
core base of what ills America - specifically and particularly White
America . . . translation - Donald Trump's America;
field general Andrew Luck pitted against KC Signal Caller Patrick
Mahomes. . . . Yesterday versus tomorrow . . . a blue blooded NFL
legacy “great white hope” going toe-to-toe with a uppity
part black man (his parents union irritates and aggravates many a
White guy still today) who doesn't know his inferior, secondary place
on the field of competition. . . or in life and who’d dare-to
confront and oppose the gutter-low expectations held and maintained
by most white folks about most black folks.
How funky is
Patrick Mahomes, along with Russell Wilson, Cam
Newton, Dak Prescott, Deshaun Watson and a few other “Tenacious
Airmen” are defying an age-old law of White guy science which
rules the NFL up until . . . yesterday - the belief, the computation
and calculation that Black men could not successfully man the
alpha-male position on the gridiron because we lacked, were void of
all the cerebral and emotional qualities required to lead men into
battle on the frozen tundra fields of the NFL.

As a kid growing up in South-Central LA, the 213,
Crenshaw . . . I had the opportunity to go with my gramps to a
handful of LA Rams games at the Coliseum, and I saw the Grambling
Tiger, James Harris man the helm of the team. Coupling that with my
pops being chin-deep in the Black Panther Party, a member along with
Black Power icon Angela Davis in the Che-Lumumba Communist Party . .
. so at an early age I read through the White supremacy/domination
company lines. I was Black, beautiful, strong and smart, and white
America couldn’t tell me anything else
However as I
played the game of football I realized that the seldom openly spoken
rule was the unspoken law within the game. Black boys, man-cubs and
young men were told in so many ways, spoken, unspoken, direct and
indirectly blacks didn’t have the character, intelligence nor
composure to lead a team. And on the rare occasion we did . . we
relied on our "feets to do their thing”" and run
fast, quick and hard . . . for we didn’t have the mental
ability to one, grasp the complexities of damn near any offense while
we didn't have the brain-power to dissect a defense. We could just
Tenacious Warren Moon was the exception, the good ol
boy brain-trust had no choice, while for quarterbacks Marlin Briscoe,
Tony Dungy, Don Mcpherson, JC Watts . . . the list of college QB’s
who were denied a chance, a fair and equal opportunity to practice
their craft in the NFL is endless and shameful.
Mahomes snaps on his chin-strap and steps under center it will be a
form of blatant defiance of white man rules and laws, just as it is
for newly elected US Congresswoman Rashid … to “tell it
like it really is:” we’ll have to impeach this mo-fo to
ensure justice in a divided land.
Mahomes, the child of a once illegal relationship which would get a
Black man lynched in most parts of the country, who now dates a
Nordic princess - his simply “touching” her, let-alone
having sex with a white woman never forget once got Heavyweight
champion Jack Johnson imprisoned a hundred years ago in this country.
And note: this is the time period of the good ol’’ happy
days which King Trump and his people yearn to drag this empire back
We saw a vastly snow white fanbase in Baltimore on
Sunday the abandon Lamar Jackson for “Great White Hope”
Joe Flacco. Those fans weren't going to ride or die with Action
Jackson” they were more than willing to exploit, pimp and then
throw him aside, and his entire maturation process to do so, but a
“good,” “decent” white man, Harabaugh, whose
dad placed the most uppity black man, Muhammad ALi on a mantel in
his home for his sons to learn from, well, he didn’t give the
fair-weather fans the human sacrifice and instant gratification they
There’s never been any legit “investment”
made in Black people or Black America, and true to history it became
clear to the black Raven players that thousands of fans saw Jackson,
and themselves as what some of us know they are - after-meal
“entertainment,” 21st century gladiators, nameless,
faceless” Mandingo/Zulu bucks”, who if they can’t
perform, generate the wins, championships and profit stream, then
hell yes, revert back to the “Standard” - Joe “cool”
Flacco to rally the barbarians with his intellectual grasping of the
game - he wold have l came in the game and “read” the
defense, calmed his hysterical black teammates and do something
Jackson just really isn’t capable of - thinking.
funky is this onion?
Just as most of White America hopes
like hell Trump’s a long over-due version of an 87-yard “hail
Mary” pass to regain control and power in the last seconds of a
over-time game they’re losing . . . despite cheating all game
long . . . Most of the white fan base across the US is hoping Andrew
Luck, Rivers, Brady and the remaining “good ol’ boys”
beat-back these black Signal Callers, “take back” the
NFL, make it 1963 white again, running backs, defensive backs. . .

all over the field.
