Mr. Fetchit goes to Washington.

*
I am getting ready to watch Le Bron's return to C-Town. It should be fun. The haters are out and in full effect. I am sure they are going to let my man have it for treating them like the girl he dated all through high school then dumped for the homecoming Queen.

But don't worry Le Bron, you need haters. Haters can serve as a great source of motivation.
-I am with my man Kat Williams. Paraphrasing: If anyone out there is looking for someone to hate on, please feel free to hate on me.- Still, Le Bron looks like he is somewhat of a sensitive guy. Unlike Kobe, I am not sure my man can thrive on the "hateration". He strikes me as a guy who needs love. That is not a good thing. Now if he drops 40 on the Cavs tonight I will change my tune. But until then, I am thinking that Le Bron might be regretting his decision to bolt for South Beach.

Staying with the sports theme: The Eagles are my team, but I have always liked the Ravens. They play with a certain amount of swag and the players on that team have never been afraid to speak their minds. Now comes this shot at the NFL from Terrell Suggs:

"The hottest trends for winter 2010 are prints, jungle themes, chambray and bashing Roger Goodell. One day after Hines Ward.. ripped Goodell's NFL for hypocrisy on a number of issues including player safety, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs... said the league plays favorites with Tom Brady(notes) and Peyton Manning...., and doesn't care about other quarterbacks.

[Related: Star defender threatens to retire over rules]

He made the comments after being asked about the fines levied this season against James Harrison(notes), who will take the field opposite Suggs and the Ravens on "Sunday Night Football":

"I think they are looking at [Harrison] more closely than they are everybody else in the league. In the referee world, they kind of red-flagged him.

"The league has their favorites. One being in Indy and one being with that other team up north. Besides those two, everybody is fair game. Some quarterbacks are getting the calls right away. Some quarterbacks they don't care.

"Like I always said, Carson Palmer(notes) got hit in his knee in 2005 but there was no rule made. Then Tom Brady got hit in his knee and all of a sudden there is a rule and possible suspensions, excessive fines -- it's just getting ridiculous." [Source]

Of course the suits in the NFL have their favorites; and Suggs just named the two biggest ones. Can Manning and Brady ball? Yes, they can. (BTW, what's up with our boy Brady putting plugs in his hair? Is it that stressful hooking up with a "super model"?) But Stevie Wonder can see that they get special protections from the hypocrites who run the NFL.

Finally, I have ripped the CBC in the past, and lord knows I am not a particularly big fan. But if you are a black elected official in Washington, wouldn't you want to be a part of that organization? And, if you think, as I do, that they have some issues; wouldn't you want to become a part of it and try to change it from the inside? Not my man, *Tim Scott, he wants to look forward, and silly things like racial distinctions are a distraction.

"The new Republican representative from South Carolina was the focus of many Congressional watchers after this year's midterm elections in regards as to whether we would be joining the Congressional Black Caucus. His membership would have made him the first Republican in the group since Rep. Gary Franks was defeated in 1996.

While new Florida congressman Allen West who has accepted the invitation to join, Scott has chosen, quite publicly, to decline the invitation extended from the CBC. West promised to "shake up" the group -- whatever that's supposed to mean.

However, Scott, who will represent South Carolina's 1st District, says he won't be joining because "the future is more important than the past."

He says the black community will benefit basically when capitalism fixes everything for everybody and there's no need to look at black folk as special.

"...reducing the tax burden, decreasing government interference in the private sector, and restoring fiscal responsibility, and I don't think those ideals are advanced by focusing on one group of people."

For Scott, apparently, history means nothing, disparities in education, housing, health, crime, economics in the black community are not significant enough to tackle for a politician whose campaign was "never about race." Apparently, in his district, there are no black people, so he really won't have to worry about them.

Indeed, the area votes largely conservative and is almost 75 percent white with only a 21 percent black population, 2.5 percent Latino, and 1.3 percent Asian populations. So maybe what he's scared of is riling up his major voting constituents -- who likely couldn't care less about issues in the black community -- by joining a legislative caucus whose primary focus is the black community."

Jig Tim, Jig!

Good for Mr. Scott, for eschewing the politics of racialism. The CBC has done nothing regarding disparities in education, housing, health, crime, economics in the black community; they are a corrupt bunch of incompetents interested only in playing the racial spoils system for personal gain. They are the past, and good riddance.

PilotX said...

Scott, like Jim Demint, benefitted from a clear cut case of political chicanery. You can't honestly tell me Alvin Greene won that race fair and square. Scott's opponent was also Black, how did that happen in that district? Really? The Dems thought that their best candidates were a moron and a Black Dem running against a Black Repub? They wanted some negros in the congress very badly obviously so they could say "see we're not racists". They got their wish and now they can even give Mikey Steele his walking papers. Win win win.

Field you are a hypocrite! Obama hasn't given two cents about the Black Community and but I haven't heard you yell, "Jig, Obama, Jig!".

I don't blame the congressman for not joining that sorry ass CBC when his constituents are 75% White.

On the other hand, Obama carried 97% of the black vote and he has bearly said "hello" to us. Of course, a progressive liberal black dem like you will can't see such a glaring and obvious pattern. That's because you are busy finding ANY little fault with Black Conservatives instead of seeing the faults of liberals.

Face it. You are an Obamaholic who can't see straight. Consequently, you will never know what it means to be "fair and balanced."

uptownsteve said...

"West promised to "shake up" the group -- whatever that's supposed to mean."

The only thing West is going "shake" is his Tom ass....for the rightwing financiers and the tea partiers who got him elected by a thread.

Scott on the other hand is trying to play the "race-neutral" game his rightwing handlers taught him which is little more than promoting white supremacy.

We know the deal.

A vote for a black democrat is "racial tribalism" but a white vote for Republicans is a perusal of the "issues".

Even though the Reoubs haven't offered a detailed alternative to the so-called "failures" of this administration's policies.

Rudy said...

As a black man, I do not have a problem with Scott being a Republican or declining an invitation to join the CBC.

It's great to see some political diversity among my population.

I think it is actually possible, albeit rare, to be "conscious" and a Republican at the same time. Alas, Scott doesn't fit that bill.

mellaneous said...

Rudy its barely possible to be a so-called Democrat and be what used to be known as "conscious", and that is knowing what time it really is that we live in a classist and racist society and that we don't enjoy real democracy at all but a form of bourgeois democracy.

Its almost impossible for a Republican to be conscious by the definition. But granted some republicans have sense enough to fight for their own and community's best interest on the local level; sometimes.

mellaneous said...

Field I think you may have touched on something about LeBron I think you are right. He tries to hide it but I think he is a bit of sensitive soul.

I think unlike Kobe who really does only seem to care about himself and is the epitome of the selfish, self absorbed, boorish superstar, LeBron seems to be a bit reflective. And he is more honest than most of his colleagues.

He could have easily have played off the question about whether some of the hateration coming his way was racially motivated. But he chose to tell the truth.

Because of course it is!

Wesley- I feel you. I keep waiting for the announcers to ask if the Pittsburgh quarterback has reformed his ways. Its strange that they don't ask aloud whether he will stop forcing himself on women and pulling his penis out.

Yep it's on paper witnesses testified that the boy showed a woman his penis. But barely a peep about his serial shenanigans and misconduct toward women.

Where are the feminists on that subject why aren't they yelling foul and picketing his games. HMMM!
JOdy, Focused Purpose, LA LA anybody?

And Field you got put that fool Jason Whitlock up for the world to see that he is the most hatingest Tommingest Negro so-called writer in the US. What a shameless effort at cow towing to white folks his writing about black athletes usually is, that Negro makes think about spitting on his shoes if I see him person. Yeah I know that's a bit extreme but that guy really gets under my skin.

I took him on at Black Agenda Report a year ago or two when he tried to call young blacks the KKK. What a shameless uncle Tom.

mellaneous said...

Oh yeah Field about Scott. Well at least he is consistent.

Ironically, judging from what he says he wants to do, he doesn't even represent the interests of white constituents either, because most of them are working class white folks. I am sure deregulation and tax cuts aren't on the top of their wish list this Christmas.

But what do we expect? Too many black folks continue to believe that the Dems and the Repubs actually represent them. Of course the Republicans with their more overt racism, conservatism and snobbery make it a little more obvious and most black folks except for conceited, misguided and well off black folks know enough to know that they don't have anything to conserve.

Since we're not moving forward (and no Obama actually does not represent political or working class progress) then it makes since that more Negroes are actually believing that they have overcome and can pretend.

Dont forget the tax breaks and free apartments or freezers full of cash or money in your bra or steering money to your husbands bank or doing crack or...nah I wont go on. You get the point dont ya? The best thing this man can do is stay away from the CBC Corrupt Black Caucus. They only gets theirs and screw everyone else. Word security check is Alibi...that is so fitting. Too bad Rangel didnt have one when he got busted.

Wesley R said...

Field,

The Texans hung better then I thought they would. Most of the Divisions are super tight so they ( Eagles) have to stay hungry and get their defensive players back.

And what separates Kobe from Lebron is heart. But at the end of the day Boston will win the championship this year. LA again next year, then Miami will make a Bulls type run. The league is rigged, I've been saying that for 25 years. The only thing that could change that is if Rose in the Chi or Durant in OK City get some unexpected help the next few years, and say 'F' the 'rules' and snap in the playoffs.

Your not to bright are you sambo?
First of all that BO fella is president. He doesnt represent a "district"

Duval, I think you mean Deval is a governer, he also doesnt represent a district.

Keith Ellison is more muslim then black. He makes Obama look like a nigerian.

I can go on and on but will leave the highlighting fact that you are a complete and utter moron who absolutely needs affirmative action or a woman supporting you to survive with Charlie Rangel. Do you even know which district he represents and how even though he got caught being corrupt, he got relected?

Ike Legitt is a county executive, not a senator nor a congressman. Oh and also isnt he the guy who during a real bad point in the recession decided to build a 66,000 bathroom in his office. I'll tell ya, he is definitely one of those corrupt blackocrats.

Dumbass. Problem with you is you are obviously so uninformed that you try and make it right with venom. Now go back to your fantasy land you claim others live in, but we know who ignores facts. Or in fact makes things up when he doesnt have a clue.

LACoincidental said...

Hmm...the new Black Republican Congressmen, brought to power by the closet Klansmen that make up the Tea Party, are snubbing the CBC claiming to be 'independent' but acting as little more than right wing lawn jockeys for corporate paymasters. Surprise, Surprise.


In more breaking news, Obama worked behind the scenes to keep Bush's top advisors out the Interpol pookie for torture, according to the Wiki Leaks documents. No surprise, since Obama and Pelosi already said they weren't going to look into Bush torture stuff. However, this is another chink in the O-Man's liberal armor (which for some folks, is about as thin as toilet paper at this point), but this is not unusual. And frankly, if he didn't pressure Spain, Obama would be complete political moron. Obama gains nothing politically putting GWB's top advisors on trial, let alone letting a Spanish court do it. He would raise the ire of the Tea Party and GOP.

And despite the kind of giddiness it would give some of us lefty blogger folks, I don't see Obama shipping off Cheney to a Nigerian court, either. Again, he nothing to gain and a lot to loose by letting a developing nation's court try a former VP, no matter how much big a jerk said former VP is.

M, on that we will agree.

Rudy, I actually agree with you. But I don't think Mr. Scott is a good exampple. Somehow I think my man is a jigger, who doesn't really care about helping people. (black or white)

Birds win!

Wesley, you are right, they made it a little too close for me. And we need an O line or Vick is not going to make it through the season. :(

field negro said...

La~Coincidental, I hear you about Mr. Scott. And as for this thing with his O ness and W's people; someone e-mailed me a very disturbing article about his O ness from Mother Jones. (I wish I could remember who it was to give them their propers) But I might blog about it later.

LACoincidental said...

Field, I read the article this morning. It's here.

Like I said, this is politics pure and simple. Once you're the President, you're in the club - and you don't talk trash about other members of the club. Honestly, it sucks but what does Obama have to gain from letting a foreign court put a former US President's advisors on trial when our own Congress won't do it? Making the Blogosphere cheer is small potatoes.

It's not unusual for President's to let their predecessor's shit slide. Clinton didn't put Pappy Bush on trial for Iran-Contra or God-only-knows what he was doing as the head of the CIA. Bush, as far as I know, didn't chase Clinton's penis to infinity.

Mack Lyons said...

"Scott on the other hand is trying to play the "race-neutral" game his rightwing handlers taught him which is little more than promoting white supremacy."

Didn't Harold Ford Jr. try that out? I might be wrong, but that definitely didn't work out for him, either.

"He says the black community will benefit basically when capitalism fixes everything for everybody and there's no need to look at black folk as special."

This completely ignores the fact that many individuals and organizations with a built-up bias against the Black community will do whatever they can to exclude Blacks from capitalist "fixes", then turn around and blame Blacks for not profiting from these fixes like everyone else. Until genuinely equal treatment without undue bias is practiced, people will continue to side-eye guys like Scott every time they spout quotes such as the above, because they know for a fact that not everyone will be allowed to participate, despite assurances of the contrary.

Ben Roethlisberger? You might get a benign boilerplate response...empathsis on "might". He's White, so it wouldn't fit in with their Black male bashing meme, which is why I wouldn't expect any response from them on this.

Mack Lyons said...

"Again, he nothing to gain and a lot to loose by letting a developing nation's court try a former VP, no matter how much big a jerk said former VP is."

I've always wondered if the prospect of losing something drove many of his policy decisions these past couple of years. Not something political or monetary, but something.....or someone...near and dear to his heart.

I bet someone pulled him aside and showed him a 3D-modeled movie similar to the Zapruder film, only instead of Obama riding in an open convertible, he's walking somewhere with Michele, Sasha and Malia in tow. And Obama's not the one who's about to eat the bullet.

I think the only thing that'd rattle Obama is seeing his kids getting killed over the Powers That Be™ not liking how he's handling things. He may have overestimated the full weight of the presidency, in regards to pleasing those who wouldn't hesitate to send lone gunmen after you and your family if you aren't doing things their way. And I bet Obama would be releaved as hell for an opportunity to walk away come 2012, if only to take his family out of harm's way.

Which is why I wouldn't be president. Because by now my hyperparanoid ass would have put together a taskforce for the sole purpose of "neutralizing" these people.

YOu know nameless you criticized Steve for not having his facts straight. So let me enlighten you.

I am friends with Congressman Ellison we fought the good fight against housing discrimination, police brutality and some other social justice causes in the early 90's.

I don't always agree with his politics these days but he is and has always been black first.

Don't be so hard on Steve in the future. Admit it,you too are just guessing sometimes.

Because he choose to defend himself and his religion when he is attacked does not diminish his blackness he is very black. In fact he spoke at our church not that long ago. So he flows freely in the community. And if any other black person from the Twin Cities sees your statement they will know you don't know what you are talking about!

I'm with you Mack, I think the big boys did the same thing to Obama they did to Clinton - sat down and gave him 'the way of the world'. Remember, Clinton went from Free Healthcare to DADT and Welfare Reform rather rapidly.

Along with ideologues (left and right) more interested in scoring points and soapboxes than getting things done, a constituency so ill-informed and self-absorbed that it can be swayed with a few fancy ads and the world Socialism, a global community that hates your guts but runs to you every time it needs a loan (or someone's ass kicked), the 24 hour danger my family would be is enough for me not want the job. Too much of a hassle.

Obama is a R...by policy. Wailing that he is a SocialismsNigerKenyan when everyone knows he is to the right of Nixon only serves to notify what you really, really want to say. Just like Addison Graves Wilson.

Here in Pennsyltucky there was a woman who swore that she was impregnated by 'famous black man'. Said celebrity denied knowing her, in any sense and offered DNA to show her claims were specious. Even after the test was run, she still claimed that 'famous black man' was BabyDaddy. Another was a college basketball standout who was constantly being accused of sexual harassment by women...who wanted settlements or else...we laughed in their face over their futile threats. Seems handsome, virile, tall student with gorgeous girlbeard was stridently gay.
So, maybe these claims are real...maybe they are not.

The conservatives are shoring up one of their Achilles' Heels...that of racism. It gets more difficult to point out Toomey is racist when his fellow travelers choose a minority to carry the States Wites program forward. It gives cover to other, more pertinent, issues and defuses the continued presence of un-Reconstructed confederates within their ranks.

Mr. Negro I have to beg to differ. He is a Representative of his constituency that is all. Now I'm a very liberal fella in the great state of Texas so I want you to know where I'm coming from when I voice my opinion. Also I am a young man. In Tim Scott I see a more complete spectrum of black political thought. I see your point of view and respect it. I also strongly reject it. The idea, I think, is to solve the problem. Not to root for our team. That being said. Tim Scott is black history and you should respect that fact. Much Love, Pause lol...is it still hip to say that? I don't know

uptownsteve said...

"Also I am a young man. In Tim Scott I see a more complete spectrum of black political thought."

And as a young person you also are expressing a certain level of naivete.

There has never been a time in America where there hasn't been black sellouts, slave catchers, racist co-conspirators, and mercenaries.

Thomas Sowell has been doing it for 40 years.

The main difference now is because the President of the United States is a black man, some monied rightwing interests decided to back a couple of willing black dupes to be frontmen for their nefarious intentions.

Mack Lyon,

I wouldn't know who Ben Roethlisberger if he was standing in front of me. I may know an Eagle's player, because he is in the hometown team, most, even famous sports people I don't pay attention. I don't even blink an eye or remember the names, when I hear of such behavior, because there is quite of bit of reporting of misconduct by sports players, professional and college. It is almost like the weather.

I think it should be the feminist in the fans that know how the teams and the major sports organizations operate, do the protesting. Of course that would many men would have to express their disgust over such behavior and the unequal treatment that certain players get. One doesn't have to be a woman to be a feminist.

Tim Scott declined to join the CBC because he KNOWS cans of whoop-azz will be broken out on him, too, if he comes in there trying to jig for Massa. He knows he can do his jiggin uninterrupted if he's not in the CBC.

chicago dyke said...

whew! for a minute there i thought this was going to be an all-sports post. i have no idea what you're talking about the vast majority of the time when you talk about famous athletes. i enjoy watching and playing various games, including football. but the TV coverage of the pro stuff is so horrid and ad-ridden i haven't been able to get into any of them for, hell, decades now.

like you i don't really care for a lot of the membership of the CBC. so it's not really a big deal to me if he doesn't want to join, altho i suspect the real reason is because his white masters, i mean bosses in the RNC don't trust him and don't want him to go spilling any of their evil plans with the nigres on the other side of the aisle. he sounds like most republiclowns and i can't wait for him to have his first JC Watts moment. "you can carry my bags, boy." -republican politician to JC Watts at some convention before Watts finally got tired of being a house negro and quit.

La♥audiobooks said...

Mell and Mack, what response are you looking for?

I'm curious myself. If the quarterback was black, I doubt either of you would have condemned him as a rapist in the first place.

And guess what, male athletes raping and taking advantage of women isn't anything new. Especially the black athletes who's been using the poor black women/girls as beginners practice for decades. It seems only when they feel confident enough to try their luck on the white woman, they finally get caught. Now THAT is what I will choose to comment on.

Thanks for asking...

La♥audiobooks said...

Btw Mell, I had no idea who you were talking about, I had to google using some clues. Eventually I figured it out even before I spotted your buddy Mack's comment.

Typical men, always leaving out crucial details, and expect women to read their minds. Thank goodness women are smarter. LOL.

Wow LA LA you are all over the place. I was just having fun with you suggesting that I hadn't heard your opinion on this since you defend womens rights very well.

I too try to defend the rights of women and always have so to suggest that I wouldn't have a problem with a black rapist is beyond ludicrous.

But the point was that dogs seem to be on a higher pecking order than women since Rothlisberger has assaulted more than one woman.

And my point was that even the feminist community was silent.

But then you said you aren't familiar with football so I guess you get a pass. But cut the crap nobody supports rape or rapists on this board that I am aware of. Ironically it is I and Mack that raised the issue so you ought to aim your fire elsewhere and ask like we did why this quarterback is not being haunted and hassled by the press about his character.

mellaneous said...

Whats wrong with you LA LA you are all pro black one moment and then you write this honerous crap.

What do you mean "especially the black athletes"? Black have not held the franchise on rape, in fact during the Jim Crow years no black woman was really safe because white racists were known to just walk in folks houses and take what they want.

LA LA there is nothing life giving or life affirming about your perspectives this seems like bitterness to me. Which you try to pass off as somehow everyone's reality.

once again i'm struck by the force of your troll, FN. they just amaze me. i guess i'm just naive about the degree of racism and hatred of intelligent black men in particular, that many white americans must have.
you also must be too influential and dangerous; i read a long list of political blogs and yours is absolutely the most infested with hatred like this. Rove et al pay people to disrupt places like this and i suspect you've been targeted.

My Folk: the trick is to ignore them. it's really the only way to make them go away. don't respond, don't react, and scroll on by any post that doesn't have a nym or ID. trust me, that really does work. FN has expressed that he lets them comment here so no one will doubt just how much hatred a black man on the internet gets from racists, but that doesn't mean we have to let them ruin the conversation here. "set phasers to ignore."

LA LA you didn't throw any wrenches you just revealed how narrow you see things.

I get it black men bad! Bad stuff perpetrated in the world, black men worse! I get it racism bad, black folks own color hang ups worse! Immigrants especially Latino's disparage and have a dim view of black folks, solution don't even try to extend the arms of understanding!

I get it LAA, cyncism and hatred of black men thy name is LA LA!


AB --OH come on AB rape is not the province of the black male! Its foolish to waste time going there. I am aware of all the idiots and never do wells and am definitely aware of all the sexist crap and violence perpetrated against women in the US.

But its spawned by a system that finds it to its advantage to promote men over women, white women over women of color and white men over men of color.

alicia banks said...

mell:

please quote me

i never ever lie either
especially on u

who said only black men rape???

no one promotes colorism and wfs like black men

mell

alicia banks said...

mell

i adore tupac

even though he was often sexist/he and biggie made lil kim mutilate and bleach her face like mj/he called women bitches often

precisely because i know he was only speaking of female dogs like the vdlr and never female queens like his mom/me/laa/fp etc...

see?

when laa and i are as honest as tupac about male bitches like uts...real bm like you need to learn to make the same distinctions

hey uts:

here is some self awareness from ec:

Eldridge Cleaver’s book opens with the first chapter, “Letters From Prison.” In this chapter he describes his place in society as a Black man and a prisoner. In my opinion, the most shocking aspect of his personality he reveals in this chapter is that he discovered that he was motivated to rape white as an “insurrectionary act...defying and trampling upon the white man’s law, upon his system of values, and...defiling his women.” He described his acts of rape as revenge upon the white man by sending fear through the white community. I believe his acts of rape cannot be excused by their motives of anger and frustration, but it is very important to recognize the abyss of hopelessness he must have felt being a Black man at this time in America’s history. I think this was a very important turning point in Mr. Cleaver’s life because he realized, after he was sent to prison, “...that it is easier to do evil than it is to do good.” This is the reason he began to write. He used writing to find out exactly who he was in an effort to save himself from himself.

(Let me don my Mr. Rogers demeanor)

How does Eldridge friggin Cleaver come to represent black men in general?

alicia banks said...

hey lying ass uts!

who said any man reps all men in general?????!!!!!

more self awareness from that rapist bitch ec:

I became a rapist. To refine my technique and modus operandi, I started out by practicing on black girls in the ghetto-in the black ghetto where dark and vicious deeds appear not as aberrations or deviations from the norm, but as part of the sufficiency of the Evil of a day-and when I considered myself smooth enough, I cross the tracks and sought out white prey. I did this consciously, deliberately, willfully, methodically-though looking back I see that I was in a frantic, wild, and completely abandoned frame of mind

In one essay, Cleaver described his rape of white women as “an insurrectionary act. It delighted me that I was defying and trampling upon the white man’s law … defiling his women.”
”I wanted to send waves of consternation through the white race,” he said.

"After I returned to prison, I took a long look at myself and, for the first time in my life, admitted that I was wrong, that I had gone astray-astray not so much from the white man's law as from being human, civilized - for I could not approve the act of rape. Even thought I had some insight into my own motivations, I did not feel justified. I lost my self-respect. My pride as a man dissolved and my whole fragile moral structure seemed to collapse, completely shattered. That is why I started to write. To save myself."

AB - don't want you to excuse anyone just trying to give perspective to the blanket accusations that LA LA asserted.

only cold hard truths about court jesters like uts who will NEVER be as regal as you sir...

Mell, don't forget LA also hates white men, but she especially hates white woman who she suspects date black men. Just look at how she treated Maria. Isn't it clear she's just insecure?

La♥audiobooks said...

I don't recall stating that black males raped more than others. And why is it that every time someone mentions the transgressions of black males towards black females, someone has to revert to slavery and jim crow? LOL.

Here's another wrench.... I wonder if some people are also aware that it wasn't just the evil white men who raped and tortured black females during Jim Crow and slavery? The enslaved black males and the black traitorous overseers also raped and tortured black female slaves through out these times. Who would have stopped them? You better stop that mess before I bring out the entire tool shed.

I once mentioned this little secret on another "black" oriented blog years ago and everyone freaked out as if a plague was coming out my mouth. LOL. Dare me.

Hey AB, that reminds me, I posted a comment to you on the other thread named Fieldleaks.

Yes Rudy, keep going and please don't stop. I always lock my doors, I have a sharp whistle, and I too have a bottle of mace nearby, not pepper spray... mace!

"I'm curious myself. If the quarterback was black, I doubt either of you would have condemned him as a rapist in the first place. "

We would. But you assume we wouldn't since that would fit neatly within your personal view of things.

"once again i'm struck by the force of your troll, FN. they just amaze me. i guess i'm just naive about the degree of racism and hatred of intelligent black men in particular, that many white americans must have.
you also must be too influential and dangerous; i read a long list of political blogs and yours is absolutely the most infested with hatred like this. Rove et al pay people to disrupt places like this and i suspect you've been targeted. "


That's an interesting way of putting it. Field's no-moderation rule grants people the ability to speak their mind without being censored or muzzled, but many people end up abusing the privilege to high hell. "And this is why we can't have nice things...."

Mack Lyons said...

"Here's another wrench.... I wonder if some people are also aware that it wasn't just the evil white men who raped and tortured black females during Jim Crow and slavery? The enslaved black males and the black traitorous overseers also raped and tortured black female slaves through out these times. Who would have stopped them? You better stop that mess before I bring out the entire tool shed."

Is it just me or does this sound like a way to save White slaveowners from condemnation while demonizing Blacks at the same time, even if quite a few deserved demonizing? Your predictability exceeds any finely made Swiss watch.

"How did this become about Eldridge Cleaver and Rape? Did I miss something between last night and this morning?

Oh never mind."


Exactly.

mellaneous said...

LA LA you take things too far....

The point of my post was that there is a white quarterback who has misbehaved and treated women like trash, has not come under the same kind of scrutiny as a black quarterback whose relatives ran a dog fighting ring and supposedly killed a dog.

You are right all kind of heinous crap was committed against women of all colors and esp black women.

You are right LA LA but what does that have to do with what we were talking about. And how do we solve the ocntinuing problem of sexism and the abuse of women overall, which is universal and systemic.

I guess you are right about the wrench if you mean your aim was to interupt and deflect reflective dialogue.

Otherwise you missed with that wrench and can continue to miss me with it, since you don't recognize allies but are always looking for enemies or trying to make them.

Because I don't disagree with what you are saying I just disagree with the way you seem to focus your fire at black men and black men alone when, they( the offenders of women) are only a part of the problem.

Now can we go back to my original point which was;
Why isn't there an outcry about Rothlisberger and his history of assaulting women? Are they saying that dogs are more valuable than women.
