Sir another awesome analysis. I am 100% in agreement with your points.I am glad Richard Sherman mentioned that hockey. No one ever gets mocked for fighting in hockey. I hope this event is another wake up call for black people.
Football player Jonathan Ferrell's killer-acquitted! Black young man looking for help, no drugs no alcohol in his system, killed by a police officer... and ACQUITTED! Yet another Wake Up call.
How many wake up calls will it take?!
Black men are becoming weak! Simply said.
Black men have been in a position of weakness as a group since the beginning.Sure, we had strong individuals, like Mandela, Marcus and Malcolm but from slavery to jim crow, to the crack epidemic to the war on drugs which was really jim crow part II, it is has been hard for black men to build a center.
. I hate retreading history but it has been a constant onslaught against the black man. It is amazing any of us are in our right minds.
As for the wake up call, anyone still sleeping is charged to the game. Assume they will never wake up. I'd rather deal with 10 solid blacks than 100 flaky blacks. Let those dusty people sleep on.
It's one thing when the NFL says apologize, but in all reality, he did nothing wrong. He didn't use profane words. He is answering to white Amerikkka.
Appreciate the brother Tariq Nasheed, he's revolutionary in his thinking!
In Dallas, TX Hidden Colors broadcasted on one of the local stations, however, it was a Minority owned station
Family I know you may not understand where I'm coming from (unless you've spent time in the Armed Forces or the 3 letter organizations; sitting with, congregating with, and bumping shoulders with the powers) but please try... all we've got is each other.
There are well known organizations that when you speak out agaisnt racism and white supremacy, the following happen:
1- Your phone, internet, and social means of communication are broken into, hacked, monitored, cut, blocked, and manipulated.
2- Agents follow you everywhere you go and legal problems start to come up.
3- ELF waves are used for the purpose of manipulating your thought patterns so you can get labeled insane and to flat out destroy your life.
4- Naturally, steps 1 to 3 are used for economic castration, and blackmail.
5- All the public hears about is the suicides and accidents that are in fact murders. But black on black crimes are so common that these murders are rarely intensely investigated.
By the way, all this is done in the military with your tax dollars. But, don't take my word for it. Here's two well know stories: Aaron Alexis and Christopher Jordan Dorner. Peace.
I only wrote this to let you guys know some of the rules of racism and racial politics that goes on higher up the food chain beyond your day to day workplace.
But first of all this is about what has happened and is still going on at Fort Sill in Oklahoma under the following people:
Colonel Gene Meredith,
Lieutenant Colonel Robert A Krieg and
First Sergeant Scott J. Schomaker,
Captain Joshua J. Phillips; to include
First Sergeant Leondra Felder.
I am an Intelligence Officer so I (obviously) can't say too much. My colleagues are taking part in these acts and they don't have the free will to say no.
More importantly, you guys need to know about the hell that our people are going through in these white organizations. The trick to it is that these folks have signed a contract with the devil so they are bind and the white man can pretty much do whatever they please. Peace.
How are you complaining and you joined their army?!
Lemme guess, it was the "patriotic" thing to do. Just doing what ya had to do, right? You musta missed the old memo from the 1700s that spelled out how this country's full of shit!!!
I've played college and pro football, and it's a shame theme a player so good, who performed so well, is being treated like a criminal instead of the hero he really is. He made the play that sent Seattle to the super bowl. If you watch what happen Michael Crabtree pushed Sherman in in the face when Sherman tried to shake his hand. Reguarless, sad to see Sherman being held in a negative light.
Nice job.My problem is with brother is because he apologize why? he;s very smart is it because some sort of group sign his checks, is it because he got a lot of things to pay for which he owes. You might stand with the brother, or will he stand with you or do fake high class negros just waste other black peoples time. sometimes we just have to move on. good luck with HC3.
A black artist just did a come back with a man being used as a chair and he is sitting on it. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/24/gay-russian-artist-black-woman-chair_n_4659014.html
I wouldn't call that a comeback, it's too moist!
Also, the dominant society wants the "bad black man". Especially in this case since a black quarterback is facing America's white golden-boy quarterback in this superbowl.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, although black, doesn't fit the thug image. So Richard Sherman is now their man by default.
Clarification: I meant that Russell Wilson doesn't fit the dominant society's image of a thug.
Of course we know that neither Wilson nor Sherman fit that image.
They will probably eventually view Wilson as a bad guy though. They were even going after RGIII a bit near the end of the season.
Justin Beiber can get busted with Marijuana and get a DUI and whites never call him a thug. But let a brotha just raise his voice a little and he gets criminalized for it. Thugs don't graduate from college and play in the NFL.They wouldn't know what a real thug was if he walked up and shot them yet they are quick to use the title on somebody.Black Men need to unite and stand strong, we all we got.Equality my ass....
Seattle 43 - Denver 8
Richard Sherman got the last laugh!
The Suits of the NFL just saw their appointed "Team of the Dominant Society" a.k.a. The Denver Broncos get their asses whipped by the Band Of Brothers in blue and green!
I LOVED EVERY MOMENT!!!!
Tariq, when you said "On an equal playing field, blacks DOMINATE the competion", you were right on the money, brother!
Tariq, I hope you do a Post-SuperBowl follow-up on this story!
You were talking about the "dominant society", and I was thinking about the fact that most NFL players are black, but most NFL owners are white. The NFL players are also members of the NFL Players Association, a worker's union, that allows them to organize to negotiate salaries, contracts, work hours, and their rights as football players.
Why don't the NFL players, a majority of whom are black, use their collective bargaining power to demand more owners who are people of color?
Also, why don't they demand the NFL to stop drug testing them for marijuana? The NHL doesn't drug test their hockey players for marijuana; because marijuana isn't considered a "performance enhancing drug".
