Great Black Fish Story
GREAT BLACK FISH STORY COME GET ME JESSE IF YOU CAN
More African Americans should
write to us about their own
success stories in Sports
we might make you
Turns out that Jesse Moore is not only a rising STAR in the ever growing and competitive Sports Fishing. He was also SMART enough to write us with his AFRICAN American success story. In case you don’t know even after reading past Boxes even if you have been far away in Iraq forced to do George Bush’s dirty work and your laptop was destroyed when fleeing American diplomats stepped on it running for cover in the Green Zone.
The fact is Sports Fans there are
virtually NO African Americans
in competitive Sports Fishing
WHY. That’s like asking WHY is The White House WHITE. Because it is and except for one precious exceptions African Americans need not apply. Now we suspect Jesse Moore does not care about any of this HE JUST WANTS TO FISH and make a good living and winning BIG as hundreds if not thousands of White Anglers do.
The name of the game is BASS
as in the Bass Master Series
with MEGA prizes and fans
Jesse Moore is trying to tap into that world where to use a phrase ONLY THE BASS ARE BLACK most of the time. Which of course evokes its own set of images. Well heeled White Fishing Pros in their ultra expensive boats hooking prize winning BLACK bass and bringing them into to the officials DEAD to be weighted and counted and the winner getting piles of money and other gifts as adoring White crowds cheer.
Anyway that is not the Fish Story
we are here to tell today
We are putting cynicism aside and we are here announcing the Jesse Moore Fan Club to encourage him here in Cyberspace to overcome all the obstacles to persist in his Dream and beat ALL THE ODDS to do the impossible within the next few years, stun the pro fishing universe and become Bass Master Champion of the World.
Which for starters means Jesse Moore needs one of those very EXPENSIVE boats that are a absolute requirement for tier one competition. Where the money and the glory are. As you will see Jesse is having his successes but he is forced to compete in the NON-boat category. He is not bitter or mad but think what he could do if he had the equipment he needs.
Now here is Jesse in his own
words from a week ago …
” This is just a quick blast to inform everyone of my success this past weekend. I competed in the 2nd of five events in the Toyota Tundra Weekend Bass Tournament series and I won the event in the non-boater division. I also won the Largest bass of the event award with a fish hitting the scale at 6.51 pounds.”
