Black NFL players, I humbly submit, would put their own mommas on
the corner - if the price was right. I’m sorry gentlemen, but
if the helmet fits . . . then strap-it-on. They’ve got a lot in
common with the sellouts in the movie “Harriet” -
a lot in common with the Uncle Toms who pathetically back Trump:
they’ve no brains or backbone.
lets walk n’ talk, permit me to back-up what I know is fightin’
NFL’s ownership is comprised of super rich white men, white
men gone mad - it is a round-table of aristocratic rednecks and
"good ol' boys” who overwhelmingly support the “Party
of Trump.” It’s no secret the league's owners have given
millions to Trump’s band of deplorable sexist and racist
half-mad white folks.
light of the basic, obvious facts, ice cold facts, the players should
make a decided and deliberate stand - if the percentage of Black NFL
head coaches isn’t at 35% by 2023 or 2024 (in a league which
the players are 70% black) then the Players Union should boycott the
entire preseason schedule. If that doesn't work, they move-on to
boycotting regular season games. Yes it'll take balls, brains and
guts while apparently most of these “brothers” don’t
have enough of any of those high character elements we saw a half a
century ago with Ali, Ashe Jabbar and Jim Brown.
dollar slaves in a gazillion dollar industry, and as long as they
keep getting paid so much moolah - we’ll only see a Colin
Kaepernick every so often.
Black players must show the sports-world what vintage 1968 “Black
Power” looks like in 2023, in order to send a clear, direct and
tactical message - if concrete measurable and weighable change
doesn't come, there will be severe “consequences and
repercussions” of the financial sort - because that’s
all these fat-cats understand.
uncut Black Power is the only answer. Yes they have to
grow-a-set and risk their personal treasure chest. Life is more than
strippers, private parties, orgies and other forms of full-grown
teenage excess . . . .
look at the NFL situation in its entirety: the league reflects the
racial bias which plagues white America. The league embodies
the racial animosity, hostility, antagonism, and bitterness which is
entrenched, ingrained if not eternally embedded in the very fabric of
White American culture, you know that “all-American”
mindset. These owners don't want to hand-over the operation to a
Black man, because they believe we don't have the
intellectual/business faculties required, not to mention it just
don't feel right, they're just not comfortable with a seasoned
leader like one time NFL head coach Jim Caldwell, but they'll take a
“Great White Hope” who's 34 years-old to lead the
franchise and team into gridiron battle.
has to look no further than Hollywood or Washington DC for
society-wide validation and confirmation - the socalled, self-dubbed
“liberals” on Sunset Blvd. can’t find the
objectivity nor inclusive mentality to cast Black in roles white
folks aren’t comfortable seeing us in, the academies won't
recognize our work. Just as the Democrat Party, home to the so-called
elitist enlightened “good white folks” can’t bring
themselves to support a Black or Latino for the highest office in the
land, instead they are sidetracked, comfortable with two white men as
old as dirt . . . , there safe in the eyes of White liberals who’ll
more concerned about voting for a contrived and transparent
openly-gay mayor - so they can illustrate how “open minded and
progressive" they are - then actually nominating someone who can
speak the “burning bush” truth to a clown whose skin and
hair looks as if he’s been sunburned while tanning on the Sun's
at stake? If Lord Trump gets another 4 years the fate of the
nation, of black and brown folk, even that of the world . . . this
man has the destiny of the globe in his tiny-ass hands….
then to bring it back, the NFL, “Redneck round-table” of
aristocratic pigskin plantation owners, of whom virtually one n’
all refuse-to hire Black men as head coaches. Black men who’ve
paid their dues as players and assistant/position coaches, like the
Kansas City Chiefs’ Eric Beinnemy, yet after 20 years of
coaching on the league can’t “earn” a top job,
instead they lose-out to 34 year-old “great white hopes/dopes”
who are given positions of power and control simply, merely . . .
only because they’re white.
game-of-life, as well as the game of pro-football is so very “rigged”
that it’s undeniable and unquestionable. Even when this
discriminatory and exclusionary attitude is evident and on-display
for all to see: 31 of 29 of 32 teams are run by white guys.
signs which say “No Niggers need apply” have been freshly
and defiantly rehung here now in the 21st century and yet, and yet .
. . and yet - the leagues vastly all black labor force, the “talent,”
i.e., black men, sadly most of whom tragically operate with the
worldly knowledge and sophistication of 17 year old boys - they still
go out on the gridiron and perform for a team, a league and its
vastly Klan sheet white fan-base, who blindly supports the racist
rascal in the White House . . . because they’re getting well
Black men perform, put on a what can realistically be compared to a
”minstrel show” for millions (yes millions) of white
folks who wouldn’t want them as neighbors nor in-laws - out
there on the field shakin’ their asses after a touchdown,
tackle or sack - dancing around in a "Step-en-fetch-it”
buffoonish manner which would have their grandparents flipping over
in their graves - all the “shuckin n’ jivin’”
done by mostly immature, mildly-educated and slightly enlightened
gladiators who, dig this, check this . . . talk about just wanting to
“entertain” the paying customers, the white folks in the
stands and glued to some screen waging millions on whether these boys
(monkeys/apes/chimps) can bring home a championship.
both pathetic and trifling, to say the goddamn least.
people are still being relegated to the back of the bus, the back of
the caboose - still being treated as sub-bar, unworthy and 3rd class
- in a vast array of social areas and arenas. why don’t we, as
a people see this? Why won’t we make a stand, dig-in and
fight-back, use what we’ve got, to get what we want, what we
are due - “societal respect” - versus capitulation and
compromise in the name of money?
go put on the OJays “45,” “for the
love of money” - the lost brothers in the NFL need to hear it
and heed it’s words.
