Article Titled: Black People Are Cowards

Article Titled: Black People Are Cowards

A must read article: http://gawker.com/black-people-are-cowards-1568673014

The problem is, we, us, black people, can’t afford to be like everyone else anymore. Not if we want to survive. I don’t know how we got here, but everywhere you look we’re at the bottom of the global totem pole. We need to make history. We can’t be cowards like every one else, not any more. In fact, we need to set a new standard for heroism. For bravery. For courage. Maybe a standard never before seen in the history of humankind. Extreme situations call for extreme measures, and in modern times our inferiority is ingrained in every single aspect of our lives, from our media, to our religion, to our science, to our public education, to our higher education, to Africa appearing to be the same size as Greenland on all of the maps despite the fact that in reality Africa is 14 times larger. It’s harder to see our enemies than it’s ever been. Our enemy isn’t white people. It’s people who value greed more than human life. Racial division is one of their oldest weapons, and media is their latest. We mustn’t forget how young this weapon is. I didn’t grow up using the Internet. The television itself isn’t even 100 years old. The idea of global celebrity, and global transference of ideas and perceptions of culture, has never existed the way it does today. Just as Howard Beale prophesized in Network in 1976, we’re up against “the most awesome God damned propaganda force in the whole Godless world.”

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver Bans Donald Sterling For Life

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver Bans Donald Sterling For Life

Following his press conference regarding the distasteful statements that are now confirmed to be made by Los Angeles’ owner Donald Sterling, NBA Commissioner Donald Sterling has ruled to ban Sterling from all NBA dealings for life. He also has issued the maximum fine of 2.5 million dollars that will be dedicated to anti discrimination and tolerance efforts.

“This has been a painful moment for all of the NBA family,” Silver said. “I am particularly grateful for the leadership of Head Coach Doc Rivers, Chris Paul and Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson.”

Even though it was apparent that Sterling possessed hateful views of non-white people, Silver asserted that only after they received concrete evidence were they able to swiftly act. Aside from this total and complete ban, Silver also hopes to force Sterling to sell the Clippers.

NBA is teams of mostly black players owned by older white men – enslavement just in a form where the slave gets paid a nice chunk of money. But, still owned by the white man.

It is known that white men like Sterling takes trips overseas and mail-order women of Latin, Asian or African descent to have as sexual toys. They’re exotic as the phrase goes….

Sterling just fckd up and let his words which are more than likely shared amongst friends & colleagues got heard this time. American Racism at the hands of Anglo-Saxons has not seized.

LGBT Community & NBA history made in 2013

LGBT Community & NBA history made in 2013

NBA player Jason Collins comes out! He was definitely a much needed representative of gays to show hiding the true you is not the way to live. Humans hatred shown through ignorance needs to be refaced. Also, in Colorado gay marriage passed being the 8th state to recognize gays & lesbians as humans who should not be denied the things straight people are granted. http://www.democracynow.org/2013/5/1/tennis_star_martina_navratilova_among_first
