Miami Heat: The Most Threatening Slave Revolt Since Haiti?
Sporting News, May 26, 2010,
“As the Miami Heat have found out over the course of this season, pretty much wherever they go around the NBA, they’re a target for the disdain of fans who were put off by the way the team’s trio of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh conspired to join forces in South Beach. What they may not have known, though, is that the disdain can reach high up in NBA front offices.
Celtics partner Wyc Grousbeck, speaking to the Boston radio station WEEI at a charity event, said he has been tuning in to this year’s postseason even after his team’s disappointing Eastern Conference semifinal loss to Miami for the same reason many fans around the country are watching—to root against the Heat. ‘I’m watching this year because I want Miami to lose so badly,’ Grousbeck said.”
Conspired. Conspired. The writer, editors, and publisher of this article have all pronounced the crime of these three black males and the pursuit of them is being reported.
I am not surprised by this consensus of white people. I fully expected it as soon as I learned of Mr. James’ decision. In the system of racism (white supremacy), the only man is supposed to be a white one. The Man. To white people, when a black male man-ages any significant part of his own affairs, it is a capital crime. In such a crisis, all white people are deputized crime-stoppers. Like I said, this is to be expected.
I am astounded that so many black people have cheered on the franchises competing against Mr. Bosh, Mr. James, and Mr. Wade.
–No.– I’m more than astounded. I’m wondering when the ship for the 100 black supporters of this trio is going to beam us up to our home planet. Surely, this must be a planet operating on a whole different logic system than the one installed in my galaxy. Here, the most abused reward their abusers and never reach their limit.
Of course, white people all over the globe know they are on the same team. The team whose sole objective is to dominate black people.
It is that same objective the pale-skinned people had who kidnapped our ancestors on distant shores. Then, we did not grasp the oneness of purpose with which white people operate; that there are no tribal constraints on their unity of purpose. 500 years later, we haven’t gotten any smarter. That’s harsh. Reality often is.
Millions of black people are cheering against Mr. Bosh, Mr. James, and Mr. Wade in favor of the NBA franchise nearest them or of the franchise with uniforms the same colors of their alma mater. But, white people get that this NBA season is the most important one in history because it could be the beginning of the most threatening slave revolt since Haiti’s. The trio took salary cuts deciding that managing their own basketball careers was more important than the tallest stack of paper. They are working under much greater pressure because of that decision to place greater value on trying to be men than on comfort. See where this is going if it catches fire?
Go H E A T
Or, beam me up Scotty.*
