LeBron James: NFL owners hold ‘slave mentality’ toward players

 

Like they’re the only ones who do!

LeBron James claims that the NBA owners hold their slaves in higher esteem than NFL owners. The claim by James is that the NBA owners have no problem with their slaves displaying a minimal amount of ‘field slave’ mentality when something happens to get their goat up as was the case when George Zimmerman gunned down unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin. James and the other Black players were allowed to go so far as to wear hoodies onto the basketball court, ostensibly in honor of what Trayvon Martin was wearing when he was murdered by Zimmerman. Wow! Talk about being allowed to show your outrage! That was quite a display of outrage and solidarity with the field slaves those NBA owners allowed their house slaves to put on. They displayed such an amazing amount of outrage, I mistook them for dead people. I was quite outdone, I was. I hope you’re good at spotting sarcasm.

In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams and they got that slave mentality,” James said. “And it’s like, ‘This is my team. You do what the f— I tell y’all to do or we get rid of y’all.”

James made the authoritative statement with star NFL running back Todd Gurley in the room, along with friend and business associate Maverick Carter, and Ice Cube. James then went on to express gratitude for the level of freedom NBA players are allowed to express themselves and voice their concerns.

“Yessum massa suh! We iz so glad you’ze gwine let us deesplaaa sum sort uh onering ov one uh hour own hue got hisself kilt by anovuh membuh uh de Klan, massa suh! It beez so kine uh u too let us due dis thang. We preciate yo kindness suh! cause dee massas o dee NFL don’t beez allowen dey slaves tu due dis!” – LeBron James

Seriously?!! Because that is basically what James was saying. How is his comment below any different from the one above it?

“I’m so appreciative in our league for our commissioner,” LeBron went on. “He doesn’t mind us having…a real feeling and to be able to express it. It doesn’t even matter if Adam agrees with what we are saying, he at least wants to hear us out. As long as we are doing it in a very educational, non-violent way, then he’s absolutely ok with it.” – LeBron James

He is REAL appreciative that his white massa allows him and the other Black players to express, in the most mild manner possible, their feelings as they pertain to racial injustice, police brutality and racism. Yes indeed, he loves the fact that his massa ALLOWS them to express themselves in a “very educational, non-violent way.” Adam, James’s massa, just demands respect of his slaves when they witness other slaves getting fucked up for no reason by other massas. As long as James continues to head onto that basketball court and do what massa pays him to do in order for massa to make money off his ass, he can, respectful like, protest for a couple of minutes PRE game, but when it’s game time, cut the bullshit because he’s cracking the whip. Like in why whitey pasty asses laud the hell out of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for his so-called ‘non-violent’ stance of peacefully protesting against a lack of Civil Rights, Jim Crow, racial profiling, police brutality, high-powered hoses, dogs, no voting privileges and the goddamn list of the like is endless.

One thing we will never, ever see and that is a holiday devoted to Malcolm X because Malcolm X was for none of that bullshit about non-violent, peaceful protesting because he knew what Dr. King knew, but Dr. King was too much of massa’s house slave to say that the only way the white man is going to sit up and take notice is if you cause the flow of money to his ass to dry up. He don’t understand shit else. That mean, mean green is all he knows because that means power and as long as he is the owner of us, he has got the power. Fuck his shit up and your ass is grass and LeBron James and every single last one of those players regardless of whether or not they play for the NBA or the NFL are well aware that there is a line they’d better not cross. Whitey pasty ass will yank that chain attached to their Black ass back in line so fast, every motherfucker’s head will be spinning. Go against massa and you’re on your own. Get some highfalutin’ ideas in your head and no more millions for you! And the next thing you know, you’re accused of sexually assaulting some piece of trashy, filthy, pasty-faced female of their species and the millions you did ‘earn’ will go to legal fees, or in other words, to yet another white massa and to her skank ass. Ask Bill Cosby who once fancied himself as head of NBC.

LeBron James cannot even blame hits upside his damn head for his stupidity and stupid he is, I don’t care how much his net worth is. If he can stand somewhere and publicly claim that his white massa is any better than the white massas that own those NFL players, then he really is dumb as fuck. And to ‘thank’ those who in his words are a “bunch of old white men,” for allowing him a bit of leeway when it comes to protesting serious shit going down is slave mentality on his part and yet he is so stupid, he can’t even see that. We are blind to our own slavery and that is a sad ass fact. Even those who are supposedly educated are still unaware they they are in fact, slaves. Nothing more, nothing less.

This just goes to show that the white man has done his job well. The slaves don’t even know they’re slaves. They look at other Black people and think they’re still under the boot of slavery when in reality, we ALL are. Nothing has changed. Just because some of us have chains that allow us to go further than others does not mean that we are free. Just because massa has allowed some of us to gain fame and fortune because of what we can do for him does not mean that we are free. Again, look at what happened to Bill Cosby. That man had enough money to enable him to think about buying NBC and where is he? Sitting his ass inside a prison cell for allegedly drugging in order to seduce what to me, looks like the most hideous monster to ever slither across this planet. And what’s more, at one point in time, he was grateful to his white massas for allowing him to obtain fame and fortune to the point where he threw us field slaves under the bus for allegedly “stealing pound cake.” He obviously thought his slave chains had been broken and he was free. Massa sure showed him! 

And so to ALL you house slaves out there, if you think that you are in a better position because massa seems to favor you, you’ve got another think coming. Because believe me, step out of line and massa will show you, quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry that your ass is just as meaningless as those of us who are considered massa’s field slaves. You’ve only got something he values more, but display a field slave mentality, rebel and attempt to fuck up massa’s ability to make more money off your ass than he does ours and you’ll find yourself just as fucked up as we are! Count on it!

 

I Owe You Nothing!

Colin and Jesse

Colin, I too, sit!
Not only do I sit,
but I also spit
upon a flag
that I perceive
to be nothing
more than
a worthless rag.
No one fought
to free me,
for I am
still, a slave.
If not,
then why,
why am I
in jail?
I am
making money,
not for me,
but for
my white masters.
In this arena,
I am,
a spectator sport.
I am admired
for my prowess
on the football field,
on the tennis court,
on the hip/hop stage
and for the NBA.
I sit because
I cannot stand,
not with these
iron chains
that drag
me down.
Tired, though
I am,
you want
me to stand
and salute
my slavery;
your hypocrisy.
I owe you nothing;
not my soul
nor any allegiance.
You want me to leave?
Tell that to my ass
and kiss it good
for you know
why I am here.
So, hate me!
That’s nothing new.
Denounce me
for I could care less.
When are you
going to leave?
No one
invited you here.
Ask an Indian man
just what the fuck
your white ass
is doing here!
Me? Disrespecting
the troops?
The troops
can kiss my ass!
How’s that
for disrespect?
Killing the Vietnamese
did not set me free.
Killing Iraqis
did not set me free.
Killing Iranians
did not set me free.
You are the Nazis,
experimenting
on my blood,
infesting it
with your diseases,
but you want me
to stand and salute
my annihilation
by your hands.
Suck it motherfuckers,
and go to hell!

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has willingly immersed himself into controversy by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem in protest of what he deems are wrongdoings against African Americans and minorities in the United States.

His latest refusal to stand for the anthem — he has done this in at least one other preseason game — came before the 49ers‘ preseason loss to Green Bay at Levi’s Stadium on Friday night.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

And before you get started on the questions, “Why are these bi-racial people taking such public stands against oppression of Black people in Amerikkka? Is it because they are insulated due to the fact of their having a ‘white’ parent and so therefore, they feel as though they’ll not suffer much from the condemnation of their stance?,” ask yourself, does it really matter who is taking a stand? We all remember Jesse Williams speech at the 2016 BET awards.

“Now, this award, this is not for me. This is for the real organizers all over the country, the activists, the civil rights attorneys, the struggling parents, the families, the teachers, the students that are realizing that a system built to divide and impoverish and destroy us cannot stand if we do. All right?” he explained. “It’s kind of basic mathematics: The more we learn about who we are and how we got here, the more we will mobilize.”

And ‘white’ Amerikkka, right on par, went nuts, being ‘post-racial’, of course. “There’s a Black man in the White House! What more do you ‘people’ want?” I am sure that is tame in comparison to all that was said and all that is being said because Colin Kaepernick had the nerve to sit and by doing so, dishonored the troops. Who the fuck cares about the ‘troops’ when the ‘troops’ are needing all up and down on some medical care and some anti-suicide help in their time of crisis? You fail to recall concrete evidence that no one gives a shit about the troops until a Black person takes a stand that’s deemed, ‘unpatriotic’ and then, let’s put the ‘troops’, front and center, when the ‘troops’ can’t even get necessary medical care when they need it. The ‘troops’ are homeless, hungry and fucked up in the head, but Colin disrespected the ‘troops’ by not standing during the national anthem; an anthem that is as racist as the day is long and well into the night. As racist as it was from the time this land was ‘discovered’ and illegally occupied by a nasty, syphilis dripping ‘white’ ass! You hypocritical shits take the goddamn cake with your fake ass attempts at outrage; outrage that acts as a shield to cover the filth that hides beneath it. You’re not outraged! You’re a nasty ass blight on the face of this planet and you hate to be shown up for what you are! Well, you can suck it! Because the ‘troops’ don’t mean shit to you and they certainly don’t mean shit to me since not one of those military whores did I ever ask to put a goddamn thing on the line for me and quite frankly, they have not put a goddamn thing on the line for freedom. For when has ‘freedom’ ever been achieved by violence, missiles, drone warfare, torture, war crimes and illegal occupation? It has not!

So, yes indeed, I SIT with Colin and damn the consequences! Now, come on up in here with your fake-assed outrageous patriotic bullshit and see if I don’t sit your hypocritical ass down beside me for the next singing of the national anthem!

Oh and lastly, yeah! This is how much we fucking care about the ‘troops’!

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold Please!”

The VA, has been swamped with calls since opening in 2007. The volume increased from fewer than 10,000 in 2007 to more than 500,000 last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report.

A 2010 calculation by the VA estimates that 22 veterans kill themselves each day. The VA, which has not updated that estimate, says the hotline “rescues” 30 veterans from suicide each day.

Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.

In February, an Inspector General investigation revealed that some of the in-coming calls early last year had rolled over to back-up centers and gone to voicemail.

But we ‘care’ about the ‘troops’???!!! Shut the fuck up! Because if you really cared about the ‘troops’, your ass would be ‘manning’ the suicide hotlines in an attempt to aid those military whores in their quest for some peace of mind that they will never find since they willingly chose to surrender peace to a gun, a uniform and ‘fake-ass patriotism’! I spit on the flag and to hell with your racist ass national anthem! Shove it up YOUR pink ass! I can’t because I’m sitting this shit the fuck out!

My Heart To Heart!

black folks

Today, I am going to have a heart-to-heart talk with Black folks. Everybody else, this does not apply to you. So, you can move along. Now then, Black folks, have you taken a really good look around lately? Have you noticed what is happening to Black folks? We’re getting arrested in record numbers and we’re being fed to the prison industrial complex and that means that some real nasty shits are making a killing off of us. This is the modern day version of slavery and it ain’t going nowhere, not unless you learn what to do to mitigate your chances of being caught up in some real foul ass shit and since you can’t cite affluenza as a defense and I’ve already tried using povertenza and that didn’t get it done., well, now…you know the old saying, “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!” Now pay close attention to what’s coming next.

If you find yourself driving down the street and the next thing you know, you hear sirens and you look in your rearview mirror and low and fucking behold, racists in uniform are gunning for you. Don’t panic. Here’s what I want you to do. Before you go anywhere, ask your great grandmother to go to the store for you. And here’s what she needs to pick up, the biggest package of Alka-Seltzer tablets that she can find and a small bottle of water. Next, ask her to pick you up some ice pops and finally, ask her to buy you a mini-recorder. Once you have these, keep them on your person at all times, even when walking and I’ll get to the reason why next.

Now that you’ve got what you need, if the police stop you, quickly insert 6 Alka-Seltzer tablets into your mouth followed quickly by the bottled water and open up an ice pop and no, don’t freeze them and only use the red ones. Quickly tear open the red ice pop and squirt it in and around your mouth. By now, the Alka-Seltzer tablets should have produced foam and with the red ice pop, you should be foaming pink shit from your mouth. When the officer comes up to your car window, he’ll see that you need immediate medical attention and he SHOULD call the paramedics. Now, remember to turn the mini-recorder on so that when the paramedics arrive, everything gets recorded.

Don’t say a word, just roll your eyes around and keep foaming at the mouth. Once they get you to the emergency room, the doctors are going to try and figure out what it is that made you foam pink at the mouth. But of course, by now, the racist ass cops will have gone through your vehicle and found the Alka-Seltzer tablets, the water and the ice pops. Don’t worry about that because at this point, just be very glad that you’re still alive. Before the racist ass cops arrive at the hospital, tell the doctors that you have ‘arresticitis’ and that this is an allergic reaction to being arrested for the serious condition of ‘Blackacitis’ of which there is no known cure because you can’t help having been born of Black parents. I know that this seems like a lot to go through and believe me, it is. But the alternative is a long stint inside a FOR profit prison on some bullshit ass charges of which whites don’t get the ridiculous sentences that you get for the same damn thing. If the racist ass cops find anything in your vehicle, at least you’ll get your day in court as opposed to an almost automatic death sentence on side the road. Remember, there have been reports of suicides of suspects while handcuffed in the back of a police cruiser. If they can get away with that shit, do you really think that doing what I suggest is any more wacked out than what they’re doing AND getting away with? Exactly! Do whatever you can to stay alive and at the same time, try NOT to get fed into the new version of slavery. You’ll never escape it because even if by chance you get out of prison, you can’t find a job. You will be denied housing and public benefits even though at some point in time, you paid taxes in this shithole called America.

Next, I need you to understand something Black folks. The white motherfuckers have figured out a way to get us hating on each other. When other Black people come to America as refugees, they are given homes and vehicles and an income and free health care. They are told that they should stay away from the Black folks who are born in America. These refugees are also told that Black people who are born in America ain’t no good. They do this to initiate hate and it is working. I’ve seen it myself. For instance, people from Somalia are brought here as refugees and they are given carte blanche in many cases and here in my state, I have to drive a lot and there are so many Somalis driving while Black people who were born here are standing on the corners waiting on buses. There are so many Black people who were born here and who are homeless while the Somalis are living in townhouses paid for by your tax dollars. They don’t pay any taxes for at least six years after they first come to America. To be fair, this does not just apply to them but to other people who immigrate here as well. The Somalis do not interact with the natural born Black citizens of America. They form their own organizations and they have their own communities. This goes back to the ‘divide and conquer strategy’ which is so simple but yet, so effective.

Another thing I want you to think about Black folks is that we have a tremendous amount of purchasing power and yet what do we do with it? Do we buy up real estate and open up laundromats or dollar stores or convenience stores? No! We go out and buy up FUBU and NIKE and Louis Vuitton and Coach bags and Carharrt jackets and so forth and so on. We just love to hand our hard earned dollars over to the rich whites or the Chinese or the Koreans or those people from India because how many soul food restaurants are in your neighborhoods? How many Chinese takeout’s? You go to the Koreans to get your nails done. You hand money over like it ain’t no tomorrow to those people from India who come over to America and promptly open up convenience stores in your neighborhood. When was the last time you opened up the door to a shop or a neighborhood takeout place and Black folks was standing there waiting to take your order, cook it and ring it up? Those people that are taking your money hate you, but they want your money. When was the last time you opened your door and found a Korean living next door to you? Exactly! How about a Chinese person? Jewish? You fucking feeling me? Yeah, that’s some shit that’s on us because we are feeding these motherfuckers our hard earned money and they are laughing all the way to the bank and to their gated communities that are far away from the stores that they open up in OUR communities. Think on that shit for a while. Let it marinate.

Finally, Black people when are you going to start thinking for yourselves? When are you going to stop believing everything you hear and see on some fucking ‘reality’ show? When are you going to understand that you should know how to read and not just fumble some almost incoherent text shit? Pick up a book! Go to a library. It’s free and you educate yourself at the same time. Learn to do your own thinking. It’s not all about hair and nails and booty calls and fashion shit! What is that getting you? Not a goddamn thing worthwhile. Use your purchasing power to enrich each other and not some shits that hate the very sight of you but who will fawn all over you while you’re getting your nails done and then spit after the door closes on you.

….and to my readers who think that I am pro-gay, I am SO not! Yes, I wrote a poem about Michael Sam who got drafted by the Saint Louis Rams in the NFL and I wrote that because Black folks need to see what is happening to Black men and either get disgusted by it and do something or just continue to get assimilated. Yes, I believe in live and let live but even I have my stopping point and the picture that I posted with my blog post, disgusted me because I’ve said many, many times before that the Black male is deliberately being emasculated. But it’s falling on deaf ears see?, and so shock therapy is the next step. Will it work? We’ll fucking find out! But know this shit! Massa ain’t fucking fooling me! And I ain’t fucking buying what Massa is selling! And neither should you! Black folks, wake the hell up! The goddamn coffee has been perking to wake your ass up and you ain’t fucking smelling it! You better hope that it ain’t too goddamn late IF and or WHEN you do wake the hell up!! Massa is making it more and more difficult for you to live and if you don’t wise up, your ass is gonna be toast, one way or the other. Make no mistake on that! Massa ain’t hardly playing with us Black folks! From MY HEART straight to my PEOPLE!!! Wise the fuck up!!
