Who’s Playing Along with the NBA? On LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Kawhi Leonard & The Rules on Color

I look Arab. Don’t I? Draft me!

I woke up this morning to a slew of Facebook posts by black people saying how ridiculous it was to have ever spoken of LeBron James as being anywhere near the greatness of Michael Jordan— after last night’s 4-1 San Antonio Spurs blow-out win over LeBron James’ Miami Heat team in the NBA Finals. These posts were given thousands of thumbs-ups — by other black people. White folks wouldn’t go to much trouble to disagree with that. But, white folks were spending their basketball-trash-talking minutes this morning fawning all over the greatness of the most international team (and, arguably the most explicitly anti-black team) in the NBA and, of course, the greatness of their beloved Great White Father, “Pop.” That latter title of the Spurs’ coach always sets to mind for me Adolf Hitler’s name for Nazi Germany as the “Fatherland.” But, I’ve digressed. What I’m going to do in this article is point out: 1) why so many black people show love to Jordan but throw glare on James, and; 2) why so many black people REALLY delighted in seeing the Spurs demolish the Heat.

WHY SO MANY BLACK PEOPLE SHOW LOVE TO MICHAEL JORDAN BUT THROW GLARE ON LEBRON JAMES
No, the facts do not bear out that MJ and LBJ are widely separated by performance.

From the outstanding article on Black Men on Sports (BOSS), BOSS Sports | Vigalantee: LeBron, Show Black Pride Openly And You’ve Got MJ Beat:

“Michael Jordan’s team did not clear .500 in the regular season until his fourth season in the league, 1987-1988, when Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant came aboard and Doug Collins was coach….”

The Cav’s went to the playoffs [James’] 3rd season in the league and that was coming straight out of H.S. while Jordan came into the league after 2 years of college ball. James left Cleveland for Miami and has reached the Finals in all three years, winning twice. Through 10 years, Jordan holds a 3-2 edge in championships and Finals MVPs. James has a 4-3 edge in Finals appearances and regular-season MVPs. The numbers for these two all-time greats are through Jordan’s age-31 year and James’ age-28 year. “

Like most beliefs that do not reconcile with the facts, this one about Jordan far out-performing James is based upon bias. In this case, it is a bias caused by white folks to further their system of domination.

A lot of black people dislike LeBron James, essentially, because a lot of white folks dislike him: kinda the way black people disliked Malcolm X in his day because, they were told was an adequate reason, The Minister advocated “violence” ( self-defense).
In LBJ’s case, somehow it’s related to “how The Decision was done.” That was a product created by the white folks who control marketing. LBJ had every right to profit from it though all the money he made from it went to charity. James also had/has every right to be vocal about his confidence. When white men do it, it’s called “leadership.” When black men do it, it’s called “cockiness” (not surprisingly). Think about the word, “cocky.” Minister Malcolm was not a well-behaved Negro and neither is King James of America. I understand that we don’t like those of us whom our dominators don’t like because those rebels make us nervous. But, we gotta deal with that nervousness in a more constructive way. The rebels are right and the dominators are wrong.

WHY SO MANY BLACK PEOPLE REALLY DELIGHTED IN SEEING THE SPURS DEMOLISH THE HEAT

Black people hate blackness, of course. We hate seeing it like a vain 50-yr-old hates looking into mirrors. We prefer to see ourselves as something different, something better, we believe, than we actually are. Most black people prefer to see ourselves as the mulattoes that have replaced us in mass media. This is often discussed as regards black women and hair weaves. But, witness it now in black men: A friend of mine told me this morning that she was watching game 5 last night in a lounge. My friend told me, “at a table next to mine were several young black men who talked about The Spurs having a black man from this country and that…how this one was mixed with this and that….they high-fived when the Spurs scored and one yelled for them to whoop them ‘black mutha fuckas asses'”

Hasn’t anyone noticed how the NBA has had, for the last 5-10 years, a much higher percentage of lighter-skinned black players than exists in the general population or that existed before that time? Professional sports have now become like any other job. Lighter skin can qualify you when ability alone cannot. This change in policy by the racists was quite deliberate and explained very well in a piece on Aljazeera, entitled, Far from Sterling: Rebranding racism in sports, written during the 2nd round of this year’s NBA play-offs:

“The National Basketball Association (NBA) has evolved into a global commodity. With fans all over the world, its top athletes are as recognisable as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Although a worldwide brand today, the NBA’s struggle has long been selling a “Black game” to a white audience stateside, and non-Blacks on the international front.

‘Less black and more professional’

Today 76 percent of NBA players are Black. Before the influx of international talent in the 1990s, the proportion of Black players was even higher. NBA owners, all of whom were white until 2002, set off to do the impossible: convert a predominantly Black NBA into a non-Black league.

First, league owners sought to transform the league’s image. Hip-hop culture was ubiquitous in the NBA, manifested by the music played at stadiums to the style of dress worn by its biggest stars. The corn-rowed Allen Iverson, who commonly wore baseball caps and medallions at press conference, replaced the suit-and-tie professionalism of Michael Jordan.

The shift was far more than merely aesthetic. Jordan personified the apolitical sensibility and trans-racial marketability NBA owners coveted. Jordan was said to ‘transcend race’, while Iverson’s slang resonated more with street kids than corporate sponsors. While Jordan faded away from race and politics, claiming: ‘Republicans buy sneakers, too’, Iverson represented the very culture and community NBA owners sought to clip.”

To “transcend race” means to not talk about racism (the domination of black people). That can include not talking much AT ALL and looking down when not looking at some task on the court. It’s not his fault and I’m not demeaning the Spur small-forward, Kawhi Leonard’s, talent. But, of course, his behavior and speech fit the latter specs. The same can be said of The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Reggie Jackson. Let me reiterate that I am NOT blaming Mr. Leonard or Mr. Jackson. They are being severely victimized and it shows. Victims are not to blame for their victimization. Period.

To be “more professional and less black” as referenced in the Aljazeera piece, means to as much as possible, literally and phenotypically be less black. The international list of black NBA players fits this bill more than it does not. But, it also includes many born right here in these 50 united states in North America. An Arab in Dubai watching an NBA game might think that Danny Green, Tim Duncan, Stephen Curry, or Blake Griffin are Arabs. And, a lot of black people would like to escape their black self-perception by seeing themselves in such players.

In other words, a lot of the dislike that black people have for the Miami Heat, as currently constituted, and much of the fondness we have for the Spurs is not because of the way the latter play team ball but is just plain colorism born of being dominated by non-black folk.

Just Say No to Combs

Posted in Counter-racism with tags , , , , , , on May 16, 2014 by CREE-EIGHT

JustSayNoToCombs

It’s just plain math, i.e., logic. No one likes pain. IF combing hair causes pain and hair must/should be combed, THEN, hair that can be combed with no/less pain IS “good hair.”

Time is precious. IF combing hair rakes a lot of time and hair must/should be combed, THEN, hair that can be combed with no/less time IS “good hair.”

If you have very tightly coiled-hair that you don’t regularly change into not-so-bad hair with chemical or mechanical heat, your hair could logically be reasoned to be bad unless you style your hair WITHOUT COMBING in a manner that does not require pain or undue time (more than about 90 minutes per week). Or, unless you shave it all off.

I do not have “bad hair” and I am not bald. My hair is a mix of curls of various diameters (some natural and some fashioned with conditioner and my fingers) and naps and locs. I REASONABLY de-tangle my hair with my fingers before and after washing. I do use scissors to clean the lines here and there as I got myself emotionally unattached to length except enough to see the luxurious, has-its-own-mind textures. But, I’ve no need to rid my head of every single tangle anymore than I’ve a need for the shrubbery in my yard to look just like the grass. And, I get compliments all the time on both my hair and my yard.

I had a math problem to solve and I solved it.

In South Africa, during “apartheid,” white folks would administer the “comb test” to determine whether to classify some children as “coloured” (mixed race) and, therefore qualified to be spared of some mistreatment coming to those classified as black. THAT is a “racially biased” test if ever I heard of one. I refuse to administer it to myself.

I must, according to my counter-racist code, tell the truth about my weaknesses and faults in any matter that I solicit the same of others. And, that truth is that I did not correctly solve this problem at the time that I chose to have offspring. I solved the “bad hair” problem of my offspring by selecting a father with straight hair. He also has pink skin.

Hi, My Name is Timmy

“Hi, my name is Timmy. I’m 37 yrs old , 7ft tall ,and weigh over two hundred pounds. I’m a future hall of fame inductee and I have helped my team to 4 NBA titles so far in my career. I’m not the highest paid player on my team, and Pop says I “shouldn’t worry about the money and focus on being a good boy”. My wife is leaving me and probably taking most of my money with her. But Pop says “give her whatever she wants and don’t make her out to be a gold digger in the media.” Oh and “be a good boy”.
I try my best to please Poppa. Tony does too, but sometimes I think that…(need to catch my breath)…sometimes I think that Pop is a big bully! He scares me!!! I’m doing my best to make him happy. Hopefully we beat those Big thugs(lol ,I mean three) and Pop will take me camping this summer After this divorce I will probably need a tent anyway. Hehe.- Goodnight diary.”

San Antonio Spurs Coach Pop: Supreme Manager of Black Cock-y-ness

Dressing stylishly for media events after games implies pride and confidence. Confidence, in any amount, in a black male is cocky-ness to white men. White folks’ chief complaint (only complaint?) against world MMA champions Anderson Silva and Jon Jones, and 4-time NBA MVP, LeBron James is that they are COCKY. I suspect that the reason that Spurs players dress down in post-game media conferences is that white “Coach Pop” (Popovich) rewards and enforces an “aw shucks, tuck in your confidence/cock” demeanor on the black Spurs players. Confidence in any amount in black people makes the black person a target for greater abuse. And, when it is in black men, it is, of course, berated as damnable cockiness. Everyone knows black men have big ones. I guess that’s why Ginobili, the Spurs best white player, has the biggest salary in order to compensate for his lack of cock-y-ness compared to Parker and Duncan.

Danny Green, who along with Gary Neal was a no-marquis player who shot the lights out last night in game 3 of the NBA finals, is “the only player in the history of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) with 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 250 assists, 150 three-pointers, 150 blocks and 150 steals. He won the NCAA men’s basketball Division I national championship in his senior year at UNC and played in his first NBA finals in 2013 with the San Antonio Spurs.” Still, according to espn.go.com, the Spurs “couldn’t stand him… didn’t like his attitude and didn’t think he’d fit in with their team-oriented culture.” Green, then, left a voice-mail message for “Pop” saying, “I’ll do whatever you need me to do. Rebound, defense, towel boy, water boy … whatever you need me to do, I’m going to do that.” Ole Pop gave Green second and third chances after that—- the third time having his former white college coach at North Carolina vouch to “Pop” for his “attitude adjustment.”

YOUR NAME IS TOBY!

In circumstances such as these, when black men are pulling down millions of dollars, white men feel strategically re-assured when black men date and marry white women as bed-side overseers. Being reassured that these black men want so desperately to please white folks. So, should we be surprised?……

 Spurs game 3 hero, Gary Neal, who says he wanted to come back to the states from Europe so he could "start a family."

Being born into a system that allows white folks to so effectively punish black men for healthy confidence is the reason I blame white folks (and that includes the blonde “wives” shown below) not Mr. Duncan, Mr. Neal, or Mr. Green for all the tragic facts discussed in this post.

About Christopher Dorner’s Firing From the LAPD: It Never Was Complicated

Posted in Counter-racism with tags , , , , , , , , on February 11, 2013 by CREE-EIGHT

Former LAPD officer and accused murderer, Christopher Dorner.

The facts about former LAPD officer, Christopher Dorner’s, termination as they’ve been reported through various sources, is a classic illustration of the way racism (white supremacy) works.

Already we’ve been told both that Dorner was stripped of his badge in 2009 and that his badge was found in San Diego on Febrary 7, 2013. So, in this piece, I am assuming that this situation isn’t some set-up or drama orchestrated by white folks — who are known to execute massive frauds.

In this piece, I am also not addressing the murders that Dorner is accused of recently committing in the southern California region except to say the following: 1) It is incorrect to harm any person that is not white who poses no imminent danger to the physical safety of anyone else who is not white or to major property owned by persons who are not white, and; 2) I am grateful to the Creator that neither I nor anyone whom I hold dear has ever reached the desperate state that Mr. Dorner would’ve had to have been in order to seek to end one’s own existence or that of another.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

White reporters and white editors of media with the largest audience across the nation are cooperating with white persons who are officials in the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) by presenting the story of Christopher Dorner’s firing from the LAPD in 2009 as if it’s “complicated.” Racists (white supremacists) will always try to make things seem complicated whenever black people are close to clearly understanding anything about racism (white supremacy). This is not complicated. As said in that media release (“Manifesto”), it’s “plain as day.”

In order to make a determination that Christopher Dorner should be fired from the LAPD, its Board of Rights (BOR) was only required to determine that it was “more likely than not” that Dorner lied when he said that his white female partner, Teresa Evans, kicked white male suspect, Christopher Gettler, in an excessive use of force.

The state courts held a similar but lesser standard. The courts had to decide whether the Board of Rights (BOR) REASONABLY BELIEVED that Dorner was more likely to have lied than not.

Contrary to the findings of the BOR and the California trial and appellate courts, the testimony of neither the arrestee, Christopher Gettler, nor his father, Richard Gettler, is made less significant for any of the reasons the BOR cites. That testimony was that the female arresting officer kicked Gettler in the chin and the chest and that he told his father that he had been kicked by the female arresting officer who could have only been Evans. Simple.

It is irrelevant that Gettler suffers from mental illness.

It is immaterial that Gettler got Evans’ hair color wrong one of the two times he made a statement about it.
Anyone might have a condition that makes them more prone to be confused or forgetful about something. But, if such a person makes a statement that independently matches another person’s account, it is a practical certainty that the statement is true.

It is also irrelevant in this fact set whether, at the time of his report to his sergeant of the excessive use of force by Evans, that Dorner believed he was about to get an unsatisfactory performance review from Evans. This is the claim of Evans but one that has not been reported to have been documented anywhere. It matters not whether Evans was attempting to fabricate an unsubstantiated record of poor work performance by Dorner or whether Dorner actually was performing unsatisfactorily. It is immaterial because it is a statistical improbability that amounts to a practical impossibility that Gettler and Dorner would give independent accounts of Gettler being kicked by the female arresting officer unless Evans, in fact, kicked him. Dorner was not fired for poor performance. He was fired for lying about his report of Evans using excessive force. Simple.

It is clearly not more likely that Dorner lied than that he didn’t. It is, therefore, ridiculous to conclude, as the courts did, that the Board of Rights officials reasonably believed that Dorner lied. Yet, the system of racism (white supremacy) is as designed to produce such judicial and quasi-judicial outcomes as it is designed to produce resistance to them. As counter-racism science originator Neely Fuller Jr. wrote, “The seeds of the destruction of Racism (White Supremacy) are implanted in the existence of Racism itself.”

What does matter is that Los Angeles Port Police officer, Sgt. Hernandez, who is likely a white person that claimed to witness the entire arrest, lied about telling Dorner to fix his tie when Dorner wasn’t wearing one. I suspect that this was a code for the lynch rope that he and others were conspiring to metaphorically tie around Dorner’s neck. There is no other reason that I can think of for the man to include such an obviously false and extraneous piece of data. Malicious, coded language is an ever-present part of the practice of racism.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Fresh out of the police academy in 2006, Dorner reported officers (who have Hispanic names but are arguably white) for using the word “nigger.” From that moment on, he was on the clock kept by the terrorist collective of white persons as a target of even greater mistreatment than he would normally receive as a black person. I’m sure with Mr. Dorner’s confusion about the system of racism (white supremacy), he had no clue that white folks were laying in wait for him with special plans for harm. This confusion was, necessarily, infused daily with his intimate interactions with white folks whom he “dated” and called his “friends.”
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
If Mr. Dorner is still breathing, he surely sees now that this entire planet is a prison run by white supremacists. Whether they smiled at him, cried with him, drank beer with him, swore an oath to justice, or whispered sweet and absolute nothings in his ear, white folks meant him harm. Heck, I wonder if he’s heard the latest about Richard Gettler? The elder Gettler says he told Dorner that filing the report about his son being kicked by Evans was making “too big a deal” out of it. Best wishes to Mr. Dorner on the other side. Simple but hard.
Doesn’t get any simpler or any harder.

Serena Williams and Her Sexual Threat to White Females and Testosterone Challenged White Males–Guest post by Josh Wickett

Racist Mocking Serena

SeranaOnLetterman
Josh Wickett, the skilled veteran counter-racist practitioner and one of my favorite writers in the world, put on a clinic of counter-racist speech with the white folks on the PUA (Pick-up Artists) Blog concerning that sour-grapes mockery of Serena Williams’ beautiful figure by that marginal talent white female tennis player. So, here it is in its entirety as it arrived in my inbox this morning. It’s a tutorial. A great one. So, I hope less experienced victims in the use of compensatory conversation control will study this jewel. Gotta make our work our fun. Racists (white supremacists) do.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Guest post by Josh Wickett

OK, so I post the article on the PUA (Pick-up Artist) blog.

Now I already knew that according to code, the first white person to respond would be the white supremacist (smartest white person on the blog) and sure enough, that’s exactly what happened. “Mathew King” is a very smart white person. He is a major contributor to this site, but he’s not a “pick up artist”, he’s a theologian, with some amount of training, study and obvious interest in mans salvation and purpose in the universe.

Buts he’s still a racist; How do I know?

Because he was the first white person to respond. Why was he the first white person to respond?

Because the rest of the white people were waiting for the smartest white person to show them what to do.

That’s how it works.

You can run this experiment anytime you are surrounded by white people.

The other phenomenon I would like to highlight is the clear UNITED DEPENDENT capability white people employ in their practice of racism; i.e. white people easily cooperate and WORK TOGETHER to practice racism under the tutelage of the white supremacists. This is the pattern Ive noticed on all forums. White people who don’t even know each other and often even hate each other, will band together to attack a nonwhite person.

Do black people do this when they practice counter racism?

No.

Why not?

I don’t know. Ive been running CR experiments on this site for several months now and I know who the regular black commentators are; but they NEVER jump in to cosign or defend any of my counter racism comments the way white people jump in and promote defend racist comments.

Luckily, I find it easy, entertaining and educational to engage and defeat 5 racist at the same time with no assistance.

This has led to an interesting phenomenon.

Sometimes no person white or nonwhite will respond to a post I make.

This is a unique circumstance because racists almost never allow a counter racist to have the last word.

It used to disturb me that no one responded to my comment. But the truth is, when your code is pure, ANY respond they give will only reinforce it (and they know this).

You have placed them in “check” and rather than highlight it by responding, they try to ignore it so no one else notices.

Barring that, as per Neely Fuller’s observation, they only have 3 choices of response:

Tacky – (what the white girl did by stuffing towels in her clothes)

Trashy – (usually something sexual) “ah, ah,… maybe someone should shove a watermelon up Serenas ass…”

Terroristic – “lets see how well she plays tennis hanging from a tree”

I strongly suspect that 3rd one is the reason black people don’t practice a cooperative form of counter racism in the same way white people practice a cooperative form of racism. The tendency of black people to avoid provoking a terroristic response in white supremacists is understandable given the historical record.

But guess what?

That “event horizon” is precisely what black people must pass through if a system of racism is ever to be replaced with a system of justice. We keep trying to avoid passing through this “skinny part of the hourglass”; well… most of us that is.

I have a theory that white peoples expressed discomfort with the physical appearance of the Williams sisters is really just a diversion. What REALLY disturbs them is the Williams sisters ATTITUDE towards tennis; the diligence, confidence, focus, study, discipline…

What if black women took this same attitude in all 9 areas of people activity?

Here is what racists say is the answer to that question:

I used to like women’s (girl’s) tennis as a kid. Then those bead-braided, screeching monkeys came along and ruined it forever. Not even a sweaty swaying Danish piece like Caroline Wozniacki could bring me back. Forever unclean.

Interesting how a stacked body like Serena’s could be utterly repulsive to me. It’s cartoonish in its exaggeration, and usually squeezed into tight shit that leaves nothing to the imagination. No subtlety, no delicacy. Her broad shoulders aren’t the only masculine thing about her..

Dat azzzzzz! Badonkadonk. *retch*

I’d say thwack (our Josh) can keep her, but I know he wants the milk-skinned Beckys too.

Do you think the too-tight clothing plays into the black culture of overt, obscene sexuality or just a matter of convenience for the game? And when I refer to overt, obscene sexuality, I’m thinking of nine year olds ‘popping’ their asses, the women you see on the streets wearing clothes that would make a prostitute blush, the video we’ve all seen of the children emulating sex at a party with either no adult supervision or might-as-well-be-no adult supervision. If you have to shave to wear a skirt, and I don’t mean your legs, then you shouldn’t be wearing it in public. Save that for the bedroom. Granted, a lot of white people are picking up on that, too, now, but it seems to have started in the black community.

Ugh, and NOTHING is more disgusting than a big, fat person, male or female, white, brown, yellow or black, wearing clothes that leave nothing to the imagination. Overweight and happy, fine, but wear proper fitting clothes. If your back looks like cleavage, don’t wear that shirt. cOVER IT UP. Ugh, so gross. Eww.

Serena Williams shouldn’t be playing other girls, she’s a foot taller than they are and oputweighs ‘em by half a person.
That’s how she gets to just caveman-club them right off the court.
Pit her asgainst Rafa, they can just grunt each other to death.

Its “cartoonish” to YOU because you cannot accept the phenomenon called the black woman; especially one that routinely crushes your precious “Becky” in court.
From an evolutionary perspective, womens tennis demonstrates all the qualities men values in a woman *if he could only have one* That is the key to its popularity among men; that’s why you watch it. “Masculine” is a relative term; relative to the observer. Just because you are a pussy doesn’t mean Serena is any less feminine. It just means you would have married her when she was 14 because that’s all you are confident you could have handled.

All female tennis pros (if they are any good) have pronounced masculine qualities because their craft requires it. The fact that Serena clearly appears more than capable of producing, suckling and defending a baby… just makes her more attractive from an evolutionary perspective.

But only to real men.

Womens professional tennis is not a beauty pageant, its not a popularity contest… it’s a war. Your flaccid comments about Serena are a weak attempt to compensate for and distribute your own insecurity about your own masculinity (what little of it you obviously have).

Please miss me with that ball-less rhetoric.

Multitasking on the Re-election of President Obama: Defense AND Offense

Posted in Counter-racism with tags , , , , , , on November 9, 2012 by CREE-EIGHT

The overwhelming number of times that I’ve lost a chess game to my gentlemate/partner/husband as well the few times I’ve beaten him have taught me something about how to view Barack Obama’s re-election as POTUS:

A successful war strategy strikes a balance between optimism and skepticism. Being too optimistic makes you prey to traps. But, if you’re too skeptical, you’ll fail to move on opportunities to advance to victory.

So, the question is whether Mr. Obama’s election in 2008 and, again, in 2012 were Trojan horses—traps. Or, whether they were opportunities to move against racists (white dominators) in more than a cosmetic way. I am one who does not think that is clear. And, I don’t think the smartest racists know how it will turn out either.

I’ll fall back on my living room chess experience. In the middle of a strategy, there are lots of moves that are gambles. Advancing in one direction leaves a corridor for the advancement of the adversary. On a competitor’s way to positioning for the win, he/she becomes vulnerable—often several times— in some way that he/she can only hope the adversary doesn’t see or doesn’t take maximum advantage of. Offense is strategic but defense is mostly spontaneous. A defensive move can throw off the moves you need to make for your offensive strategy. That’s why, in the middle of the game, the board almost never looks like you or your adversary hoped. So, you have to be able to make new strategies as the game goes along.

I don’t think the board looks as the racists had hoped when they began this strategy of “refinement.” Why not? Making black people feel like racism is not as bad as it used to be so that it can be practiced without costly violence comes at a risk: They have to let black people do things that allow more of us to learn constructive information. And, they have to project images that promote the idea that we can learn and do anything they can learn and do.

So, I agree with many race-prisoners that Mr. Obama is being used successfully to amp up anti-black sentiment and to provide cover for racist policies. However, white folks’ offense has slackened their defense a notch. For instance, there will be more black people expecting courteous and affectionate relations with their opposite gender partner. There will be more black people who aspire to be in charge of there own affairs and will be angrier when they find out that the system of white domination (racism) still prevents that. There will even be more black people who keep their limbs and kidneys or do not die because of care they receive through Obamacare.

I’m just saying, don’t refuse to take advantage of every opportunity to advance on the opponent on the grounds that each opportunity is a trap. The opportunity could just be something unintentionally created by our opponent’s offense. Strap up, yes. And, move forward, too. That Trojan horse has some wood that can be broken up for arrows, fortresses, and ships.

About our defense:
white folks are sighing about or trumpeting that 70% of voters who identified themselves as “Latino” voted for President Obama. So expect an acceleration by white folks of the re-classification of “Latinos” as white. Be careful about whom you regard as a fellow confused race-prisoner and whom you regard as a racist.
