Wokeness at ESPN

The wokeratti civil war going on at ESPN has been interesting to observe. You have the woke white female who is all in on the Black Lives Matter train and the whole diversity none sense, going up against the super woke black female also in on the BLM scam. Make no mistake the white female is woke. She is down for the black cause. Like many woke white lefties she has no problem talking about injustice and all of the other SJW talking points, pretending that black people are oppressed in America.

Like so many of the white agitators who are constantly stirring up grievance and discontent amongst black people, she is unwilling to start with herself.  She is not willing to give up her white privileged position for the cause. It’s always those other evil whiteys. The buck stops there…with those other evil whiteys, not “here” with her.  Let those other white people sacrifice their white privilege and give some oppressed deserving black person a chance. 
After Nichols forgot to disconnect her transmission while broadcasting from her hotel room, She was caught in a private conversation complaining that the beautiful and talented black female, Maria Taylor had cost her her prestigious gig at ESPN. Nichols had no problems with Taylor getting opportunities to expand her horizons, just expand somewhere else. Just don’t mess with my gig was her complaint.

It’s a familiar story isn’t it? I’m good, everyone else is bad. It’s especially true in the wokeratti. They have no problem stirring up discontent and encouraging grievance, telling how everyone else is out to get the particular victim class of the moment, but the wokeratti themselves are never the problem. Because they are so good at creating monsters, they always keep focus off themselves. They then get to rhetorically set the world on fire and wreak metaphorical havoc. In the process many of the wokesters get to pat their own shoulders for being good white people. 

Of course in this instance the conversation of Nichols complaining about her equally woke black female colleague added a plot twist and now the lights are turned on her. She is now cast as the insensitive privileged white female who Iacks self awareness. She says one thing in public, but when the cameras are off makes her true feelings known.

On the other hand you have Maria Taylor. What do you say about this woman? She has so much going for her. She is talented. She is bright. She is personable. She is competent. She is successful. On top of all of that, she is a physical specimen. She is incredibly attractive. She is TV gold. 

Despite all of that, at times when you listen to her; the attribute she seems to cherish more than anything is her blackness. Like so many in sports media, it often seems like she sees the world in terms of the oppressor and the oppressed. That viewpoint often colors the way she interprets many of the issues she covers and also her commentary on a lot of what is happening in the world of sports and other areas.
Another thing that stands out in this saga is the way that Nichols is being cast as a racist for her comments. People in the leftist sports media and the wokeratti in general are convinced that her white privilege gives her a blind spot so that she can’t even see her own racism.

What is crazy is that Nichols may be right that Taylor was given the NBA finals gig as a token gift for being a black female. It is also wild that people think it is ok to accuse a whole group of people of so called privilege, but if one member of that group says that she lost her job to a black female because of affirmative action then everyone acts like the world is on fire.It’s not that Taylor does not have what it takes to do the job. She is very capable. In addition she may have a unique perspective to add to her coverage of the NBA finals as a basketball player herself. She has what it takes to do the job, but in the world of the righteous woke, where color and identity politics as a whole is prime; these two women may simply be collateral damage in the stupidity of the diversity games where everyone is either oppressed or oppressor.

Black victimhood in full swing

There is a common refrain in America that black people are slaughtered by the police for no other reason than because they are black. People everywhere sing the song, from the king of charlatans himself, Barrack Husseing O’, to all of the the other pimps in the black race hustler oligarchy. 

No matter where you go, these fomentors continue the propaganda that black people everywhere are being slaughtered by the numbers (no one ever gives you the actual numbers). The black victim class just laps it all up without an ounce of critical thinking. Without ever examining the data they just repeat the mantra. You can see them posting all over facebook, just basking in victimhood. “They are killing us, they are killing us.” “We have to walk the streets in fear of the police taking our lives for no reason,” and on and on they go. “Look at us, poor us everyone just hates us.” It’s sickening!

Larry Elder has a name for them. He calls them Victocrats, a nice play on the word victim and the political party that so many of these people mindlessly follow. How is it possible that in a year when a handful of unarmed black people died at the hands of the police that so many people think the numbers are exponentially higher, how is that even possible? Well the answer to that is simple. There is a well oiled political propaganda machine whose main purpose is to keep black people in a state of discontent and grievance. 

In 2019 the number of black unarmed people killed by the police was 27. The numbers are not out for 2020 as yet. Now 27 dead men are 27 too many, but all we have to do is add a little bit of context, and any blind bat could see that there is a lot more nuance to the story. One of the issues is that unarmed does not necessarily mean “undangerous.” Another issue is that police go where crime is, and the harsh simple truth is that many urban communities and neighborhoods where black people live are hotbeds of violence and crime. Where there is crime there is more potential for things to go wrong with the police. When things go wrong, it will go wrong with the inhabitants of the communities where crime is rampant, more often than not, black communities, but no one wants to talk about any of those issues. 

In the entire discussion of black men who suffer violent deaths, the main focus is the  handful of blacks killed by the police. The 7000 black men killed by other black men is a topic that is off limits. Who cares? Always remember no group of people slaughters members of those in their own communities like black people do. The number of murders in other groups do not even come close, Black lives matter should change their name to black lives matter only when killed by white men or cops. How’s that for an acronym?  BLMOWKBWMOC!  It has a nice ring to it. 

No one is willing to have the hard discussion about the absence of black fathers from the home and  what drives that culture. No one wants to talk about the many consequences that one important factor has on the lives of so many black people. There is never a discussion about encouraging black people to modify the behavior that often leads to the unfortunate situations that we have too often seen played out on YouTube in interactions between black people and the police. Instead it’s just a constant drum beat of whitey is out to get black people. On the rare occasions when there is legitimate polic brutality; the media, politicians, celebrities, and academics begin to jump for joy and do a jig because they get to point their finger and say “see we told you.”

Why do so many black people embrace this nonesense in a country where whatever racism does exist in 2021 is not enough to stop anyone or any group from accomplishing their dreams, objectives and goals. Why would anyone want to live in such a cage?

The machine that is so invested in promoting the myth of white supremacy as a major cause of problems for black people wouldn’t have it any other way. This machine does not wish to see black people as a whole rise to the level of prosperity that other groups have risen to in this nation that affords so many awesome opportunities to one and all. These provacateurs stand to lose a lot of prestige, and power in the race hustling industry if more  black people were to wake up and see themselves as victors and not victims. 

These manipulators would be crest fallen, and no longer able to present themselves as the saviors of helpless black people. They will be recognized for the absolute, shameless swindlers that they are, and they can’t have that. 

Quite frankly, encouraging the culture of black victimhood is good business, and a large percentage of the black people say “we loove it.”

The blessing of America

We should never ever forget our history and all the terrible things that have occurred in the United States. Slavery was in contradiction to the founding documents of the people who framed them.

For centuries we failed to live up to the idea that all men are indeed created equal. The beauty of the founding documents though is that they were created in such a way that it allowed us to apply remedies to that which was wrong. So we were able to successfully battle slavery, Jim Crow, beat the Klu Klux Klan, lynchings, prison camps, integrate the military, integrate sports leagues, Brown vs Board of Education etc., etc., etc. 

With the passage of time, the United States has fought injustice, racism, inequality and other ills that have plagued society since the beginning of time. Keep in mind that before the United States, the way of the world was exactly what we fought to defeat. People lived their lives according to the whims of kings, monarchs, and tyrants. The rights that we enjoy in the world today and in the west is a gift given to the world by God through the United States and a handful of others nations. 

While slavery was a scourge that plagued the world since time immemorial, it was the British, then the French, then the United States that gave freedom to slaves in a way that was never ever done anytime before in human history. 

Nations like Saudi Arabia abolished slavery in the 1960s, and in Mauritania, slavey was abolished in 1981. in 2020 slavery is a scourge that still plagues the world. Many women and children are enslaved in the sex trafficking industry, while in current day Libya, actual slave markets exist and thrive. In Sudan there are enslaved people who can only dream of the freedom that we enjoy in America. 

Today in America we have grown so used to the way of life that we have that we think it exists everywhere, and that this is the way it always was. People need to be reminded that it is not, and it has not always existed in the way we have it in America today.

This is a very new experiment in history, no older than 250 years old in terms of the type of Democracy that we enjoy today, and no older than 160 years in terms of the way that America and others in the world view slavery.

Despite all that America has achieved. Despite all that we have done to correct the ills of the past, people continue to hold America’s sins against the country as a whole, failing to appreciate what we have now. Here is the thing to keep in mind though. As much as America has not always lived up to its ideals, there have always been people all along way, holding the country accountable, fighting to make the country into what we know it to be today.

During slavery there was the abolitionist movement and other examples of people rising to combat racism and other ills that prevented the country from achieving it’s full potential.

It is because of the promise of America that we passed the many civil rights bills that we have over the years, and got us to where we are today. The America of today is a world in which opportunity awaits everyone. Does racism exist? Sure! But there is no group of people in 2020 America who has to overcome what people in 1960s 70s, 80s, or 90s and earlier  had to endure. The racism that does exist is not enough to stop any group from achiving success by simply making use of the opportunties that do exist. 

The fact that bad things happen in life, including racism is the consequence of living in an imperfect world where bad things are bound to ocur. 

If no racism is the goal, then people are destined to be disappointed for the rest of their lives. Racism, like greed, like hatred, like jelousy, sociopathy, and all of the other reasons why people do bad things will be with us until the end of time.

We can choose to be appreciative of all the blessings that we have, and continue working to improve the society that we live in, or we can continue to live in grievance, upset that bad things do happen, reaching for this fantasy world where no racism exists.

Happy Independence Day America!

Lebron James and the SJW movement

Lebron James quoting Dr. Martin Luther King:

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

This guy who is always popping off at the mouth,  and telling us what a God awful terrible country America is could not muster the courage to speak a word against a country that mercilessly persecutes its people for the wrong political opinion. 

Lebron James is a typical social justice warrior. He creates false battles in which he portrays himself as the hero. He then basks in the adoration as people call him brave. He gets to pat himself on the back as he pretends to “speak truth to power.”

 Lebron James’ idea of bravery is wearing a hoodie with “Black lives matter” emblazoned across the front. People like Lebron James love to take the bad things that happen in America, and exploit them by using these unfortunate situations to portray them as the norm. They hardly ever speak a good word about the United States.

When Lebron wants to speak truth to power, he turns his attention to the President of the United States, and calls him a bum, then he self righteously declares that he will never sit across from the President.

Yes sir, that Lebron sure is brave.

This young man who knows first hand the value of hard work, (good for him) and reaped millions upon million upon millions of dollars as a result only heaps scorn on the country that has afforded him so many opportunities.

He can’t even muster a word of support for a general manager who sent out a tweet supporting the people of Hong Kong who are truly fighting for freedom.

Truth is ladies and gentlemen, Lebron James is not brave. He is not like any of the brave sportsmen in the past who have fought against true injustice in America.

He is no James Brown. He is certainly no Muhammed Ali. Muhammed Ali stood for something when he had so much to lose, but he held his ground because his cause was righteous. 

Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Medgar Evers, Rosa Parks and others, these people were true heroes. Some of them gave their lives in the fight against injustice (real injustice). 

When Lebron James speaks “truth to power”, he gets accolades. He is praised by America haters who shower him with compliments.

No one should be surprised by Lebron’s hesitance to criticize China or support the General manager of the Houston Rockets who dared tweet his support for true freedom fighters. 

We have seen this movie before. 

While Colin Kaepernick was calling the police pigs, he was at the same time wearing a T-shirt of the murderous dictator Fidel Castro.

On college campuses, and everywhere across the country, young lefties shamelessly sport T-shirts of a man who famously hated black people, the mass murderer Che Guevarra, while they simultaneously tell anyone who would listen how awful life in America is.

They openly side with and support organizations like the Palestinian Authority that supports terrorists who slash the throats of babies, and oppress muslims all across the Middle East. 

These same social justice warriors save all of their venom for Israel, the only Democracy in the most hostile part of the world, where enemies threaten Israel with annihilation everyday. 

They call Israel an apartheid state.

This is the left ladies and gentlemen, heroes of false battles, champions fighting make believe oppression, but silent when they have a chance to truly speak out against real tyranny.
