That’s right the SI Swim Suit issue is to Sports like the Iraq Occupation is to a REAL war So what. We need to do a Box for tomorrow. Getting fired is not an option. The pay and the perks are just too good. Anyway you also know what our story line is going to be how few African American Honeys are included. RIGHT AGAIN !
Listen it’s a Story leave us alone We gave you enough slash and burn yesterday in the Racist World of NFL Coaching. Today a Lighter Touch. After all we span the World of Black Sports in ways that cannot be found anywhere else. Not close. Consider it a Gift ! Free to you !!
OK now let’s get to the Numbers …
There are 41 Beauties featured in the Sports Illustrated 2008 Swim Suit issue. How my are Black. How many do you think. Here’s a hint Sports Illustrated is politically and racially correct. OF COURSE. Just about 10%. And if you don’t think they count we mean Sports Illustrated not the Black Beauties you are crazy. Of course they do.
Now that we got that out of the way we will provide Balance for the 2008 SI Swim Suit issue we will ONLY feature the Black Beauties here Feast your Eyes A DISCLAIMER One man’s beauty is not necessarily anothers. We say man here but being gender and sexually neutral and equal and all inclusive we will add some women’s beauty is not necessarily anothers. Anyway …..
