To shake or not to shake....

You don't always have to chase racism; sometimes racism chases you.


My homie, Marc Lamont Hill, found that out in a very bizarre way, recently.


"CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill had an encounter of the racist kind while at a sports bar in Detroit, according to a series of tweets he sent out Friday.


As Hill tells it, he was at Sporting News Grill in Detroit Thursday night when an “old white guy” approached him and his company to ask, “What are you blacks doing here?”


Hill said the man stuck his hand out for a handshake. “So, me and the people I’m with are looking like we’re getting punked,” Hill tweeted. He said the man then asked for a handshake, which Hill declined. “Nah.”


Then, the CNN contributor said a group of white people nearby told the potentially drunk patron to leave the restaurant. “Get out of here, Henry,” Hill recalled them saying, “You’re embarrassing all of us.”


“Apparently, Henry had been using the n-word all night,” Hill tweeted. “We just didn’t hear him. They told the server what happened and they made him leave.”
In Hill’s final tweet on the matter, he said he wasn’t angry, calling the situation


“bizarre.”


“But I appreciate the white customers for saying something,” he concluded. “It matters.”


Mediaite reached out to Sporting News Grill for comment. The manager we spoke with, who deserves a raise for how polite and concerned she was on the phone, said she was not working at the time of the alleged incident but that she would look into it and get back to us.


We’ve also reached out to Hill for more details, like whether the possibly racist man smelled like booze and whether Hill alerted management." [Source]


Yes, "bizarre" indeed.


Just some "old white guy" being true to himself after a few drinks.


Still, I take issue with Hill making the regulars in the grill look like they had a "profile in courage" moment.


They obviously knew the guy.


I wonder how many nights he dropped the n-word to the crowd while they laughed and downed Coronas? Henry was apparently dropping the n-word out of earshot of Hill and his crew on this particular night as well.


The only reason that "group of white people" told old Henry to leave was because he was "embarrassing" them, not because he was making a group of people feel like they didn't belong and that he was being an ignorant racist.


“But I appreciate the white customers for saying something,” he concluded. “It matters.”


I don't. Not if the only reason they said "something" was because the Negroes were there. I would really appreciate them saying "something" on the nights when Henry goes all David Duke and there are no Negroes in the house.


That's what would really matter, Marc. Not acting a certain way for the sake of political correctness.

Yup! That's obviously how it rolls in that bar!

Sad Marc had to be humiliated,embarrassed that way!

My goodness it seems there's no civility in the states any longer.

No respect! and that always brings trouble.

Great post Field. If you are gonna be against racism, you have to be against it all the time, not when it is convenient.

Man, what delicate flowers you all are. Some old drunk says something and it's national news. Now Field has his panties all in a bunch. Black people are the biggest pussies in the world.

Brother Field, aren't you overreacting IN YOUR IMAGINED MIND?

Geez, when is enough going to be enough for you? It's NEVER enough for you, esp with the FACTS. You have got to twist it into your imagination until reality becomes the dream and your baseless imagination becomes reality.

The White members at the bar put the racist sob out because he was an embarassment. Do you know that ordinarily, even THAT would not happen in America, let alone a sports bar?

Yet, it actually DID happen. And, that in itself is surprising...no it's a miracle! And as a bm that is enough. It certainly was enough for Marc.

With YOU, it's never enough. You just can't be satisfied about ANYTHING can you? It seems as though you WANT to find everything wrong no matter how good the outcome.

Brother Field, I sometimes think you went to Rev Al Sharpton's school of Creating Advanced Racism.

What? Whites being embarrassed by some white racist? Back in the day in the 60s NO WHITE PERSON would be embarrassed AT ALL. Guess times have changed.

However, don't expect Whites to caretake for Blacks because of a rogue white racist in a bar in Detroit. Times haven't changed that much. More importantly, Whites haven't changed that much.

Never forget: White Privilege is always in play no matter where you go as a black person.

Be thankful that some Whites can be embarrassed enough to take action against a racist and had him thrown out. You can be sure that Marc didn't have the privilege or power to have that rednect SOB thrown out.

Some of the last hired crop of young aspiring Brothers and Sisters have to "keep stepping" when confronted with the cold realities of racism. I feel sorry for the "ole dude" because I am sure he sometimes under the push of alcohol- is operating in the times where he could have that colored person tossed.. I say this because i too gget that feeling from yhe days whereby you had yo be ready for action.

this new crop of "Black faces on tv" should be aware with some people and especially some age groups display negative latent behaviors, and again they must toughen up to the real America. If you guys let some old man ruffle your feathers, you better stay on the tv station set.... where it is safe.

Laugh at who? White people? Yeah, they are kind of funny.

Pilot, Marc's brother is a Bert successful trial lawyer here in Philly, and he is as fast talking as his brother. :)

But they are both good people.

I love what SAP2 said about the young bucks and Marc probably fits in that category.

Anon@2:04, do u have a link to that list? Not saying it doesn't exist, I would just like to see it.

Anon@11:51 had some real talk for us.

I hope you do realize what a stupid statement the above is. It always is and always will be "blame YT" no matter what. No explanation will ever be good enough.
Meanwhile in Chicago...... the weekend shitshow is ON. Two killed and 12 wounded with overnight box scores still be tabulated.

That's a lot of assumptions right there. You're probably right that on some previous occasions, the patrons of this bar have probably heard old Henry's views on the darker-hued members of our society, but that's no guarantee that they agree with them, that they all laugh along with his bigoted jokes. Maybe they just tolerate Henry, as long as he's not harassing anyone?

And it also strikes me as a little unfair to pick apart these people's word choice. Just because they said the old coot was "embarrassing" them, that doesn't mean they weren't concerned for the welfare of Hill and his friends.

On the broader subject, I can say that it's no easy thing to change someone else's prejudices, particularly if those prejudices are deeply ingrained, as with many older people. Henry might not be "fixable," in terms of altering his racial outlook on the world. Probably the best that can be managed is to make him understand the limits of acceptable behavior in the 21st century.

Marc Lamont Sanford said...

Henry was a douchebag. The world is full of douchebags.

It doesn't give you the right to be a douchebag and go Polar Bear Hunting or burn down a Quick Trip.

People who obsessively focus on meaningless slights are just exploiting the situation for their own purposes.

Nation of Lies said...

The media don't raise the alarm over the hundreds of teacher sex abuse cases that occur every year because the media is not interested in attacking a liberal democrat institution.

In contrast, the leftist media is in a frenzy in its blood lust for the NFL.

The campaign over the Redskins name, the campaign to get an openly gay player on an NFL roster, and now an absolute witch-hunt over a few players problems with domestic assault.

This is not about Ray Rice, who had worked things out with his wife, gone through the criminal justice system, and had been additionally suspended by his employer in a very public way.

This is not about Adrian Peterson who overdid disciplining his child and is facing criminal charges. Before all the facts can be heard, he is out of a job.

The media's real focus is instead on Roger Goodell and the league itself. Why are the 95% of players who have no history of domestic abuse under such a siege? Why have the problems of a couple of players been fashioned into a cudgel with which to beat all men?

This is just more politics masquerading as news. The NFL is a symbol of America and masculinity and thus is the enemy of the left. This is a way to put corporate and male America on notice as to where they stand in the modern power structure, and to reinforce what will be the cornerstone of Hillary Clinton's campaign for President: War on Women II.

But I know how much the truth hurts u folks on the right.

"Nation Of Lies...." , is that how u prove your manhood? By watching the NFL? Your love life must be special.

Bill said...


Someone less cynical of politicians might not see the connection...

A Texas man who scaled the White House fence made it through the North Portico doors on Friday night before being apprehended, the Secret Service said.
...
Security Service officials said they could prevent such intrusions by shutting down Pennsylvania Avenue to pedestrians. The section of the thoroughfare in front of the White House was closed to traffic after the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 but remains open to pedestrians. It is often clogged with tourists and is a favorite site for protests.

Protests outside the white house is a bad optic for any president.

Yep, let's not forget that with or without his bridge issues,he is a horrible governor.

You will obey said...

The current "crisis" of "domestic violence" in the NFL seems to be manufactured. If you've been following the NFL closely for years, you know there have ALWAYS been players getting arrested for this crap. It's just that this time, there was visually dramatic media available for shock value. The video footage of the Janay Rice TKO and photo's of AP's kid's switching provided an opportunity the Social Justice Warrior cultural marxists found it too good to pass up.

Note that when AP was first arrested when the incident occurred MONTHS AGO, his case was dismissed. After the Ray Rice video got released by TMZ, the AP Grand Jury was reconvened and AP was then indicted.

Then we have the photo's of AP's kid leaked right after the Rice video went viral, and voila...we now have a "crisis" and the NFL, Goodell and the new VP of $ocial Responsibility will certainly not let this opportunity pass them by in pushing their Social Justice Warrior agenda on society at large.

Also note that the Viking's tried to reinstate AP after the one game suspension by the team. Within hours the team's owner, executives and head coach were issuing apologies and retractions while announcing AP's suspension was now indefinite.

There is a hierarchy of priorities on the Left, and if a fair number of black men have to be thrown under the bus to promote the feminist agenda, so be it.

Please Field, Christie is the Democratic Party nominee for the Republicans and not much else. MSNBC has a love hate hard on for him. I don't know why considering that's he's got a snowball's chance in hell of getting the nomination.
Meanwhile in Chicago, kill #29 was a 16 YBM whose last words on the phone were "please don't let me die." Shameful but somehow it will be YT, the NRA and the tea party's fault. Go look in the mirror before you apply blame.

Brother Field, why are we involved in so much ugly crap?

I mean, we beat our bw, knock them out, beat our children which scars them for life...

and NOW we were last seen with a ww who has been missing for over a week? If they don't find some clues real soon, that brother is going to be convicted, whether he is innocent or not. That is, provided the police don't shoot him dead first and THEN convict him.

WTF is wrong with us?

First of all, the MAJORITY of Blacks abuse their children. Why do you think there is so much child abuse in black families?

Look at the all tha absence of fathers in black families. That is more common that the other way around.

Stop hiding behind your illogic and irrational mind and be a man for a change and admit our faults.

You of all people ought to know we need to change. Otherwise, we are doomed. And please, spare me the Field way of avoiding the truth by getting caught up in who's Black and who's not. That kind of thinking only keeps a bm ignorant and unable to face the truth.

I don't know if the majority of black parents beat their children or not they but they sure are the ONLY ones on TV talking about how they got beat when they were children and they turned out ok. If I hear a dumb azz negro say that on TV one more time ...

The other day I was watching a segment on CNN about whipping children. A black woman was being interviewed about the practice by a white male reporter. She was enthusiastically endorsing whipping her children. She said the bible said that this was the correct thing to do to "discipline" children.

I swear the white reporter was smirking at this silly woman. Especially when she said she loved her children so much that it brought tears to her eyes whenever she said she loved them. smdh

Of course, individuals from other racial groups whip their children from time to time but black people are the only ones all over the airwaves boasting about it to anyone who will listen.

Lilac said...

I have heard all of these mothers speaking on TV about how whipping is a way of life. And granted I think we've all smacked our kids from time to time.

It's a natural reaction in the animal kingdom and especially to keep them out of a potentially dangerous situation!

BUT! THESE ARE WOMEN DOING THE WHIPPING, NOT 300 POUND,MUSCLED ATHLETES THAT EXERCISE VIGOROUSLY EVERY DAY AND TAKE PERFORMANCES AS WELL AS BODY BUILDING SUPPLEMENTS!
