Straight No Chaser: Nigger Lover

Negro Leagues NormanDENVER — Nigger Lover. That’s what sportsfans and patriotic White folks called Pee-Wee Reese, Brooklyn Dodger shortstop and teammate of the immortal Jackie Robinson, and I guarantee you, behind closed doors, behind smiling faces, that’s exactly what they’re calling the Windy City’s Father Michael Pflengen after his sermon in Senator Barack Obama’s former church. Matter-of-fact, he’s a damnNigger lover in Hillary’s house, have no question about it.

Come with me, back to the Good Ol’ days, yesteryear, when White folks could speak their mind, call a Black man a Nigger without him whipping your ass — on the spot. Call a women a bitch, without her bitch slapping you in public. These cats long for the days when they could control their women….with the rule of thumb.

Yeah, a lot of folks wish for a time past, when you could exclude Black and Latino folks from both the American Dream and the American pastimes.

Under such dire, screwed up circumstances – Pee-Wee Reese made the mistake of treating Robinson like a man, with decency and respect. His civility earned him the dreaded tag of “Nigger Lover”, by his baseball peers and, across America.

The same could be said of Chicago Bear, Brian Piccolo, who would 20 years later, after significant progress had taken place, roomed, roomed with the greatest talent to ever tie on a pair of cleats, Gale Sayers. They were amongst the first NFL teammates to share living quarters. Now, for agreeing to such horrific conditions, branded Pic a Nigger Lover in some quarters.

And dare I not mention the Max Schmeling, Adolf’s Great White Hope, who split two matches with the “Brown Bomber.” After Joe Louis dropped a few tons of dynamite down on the poster-boy for Nazis in their rematch, Schmeling treated Brown with dignity and respect. This lasting mutual friendship inflamed the German boxer’s homeland -boys, who deemed him a god-awful “Nigger lover.”

Some folks began to call Patriot QB “Tom Cat” Brady a Nigger lover when he wanted Randy Moss on his team …..

The Pee-Wee treatment is exactly what Father Pflengen is about to experience, because he’s broken a cardinal rule. Don’t lend aid, comfort nor legitimacy to the enemy, i.e., (a person of color).

The colorful catholic man-of-the-cloth, being caucasian, offered authenticity to the nation-wide consensus — Hillary is playing both the Vagina card and the race card in order to gain the sympathy of everyday White folks. The big mean Black man and his White hooligan friend, (a wigger) are being mean to her, making fun of her B movie dramatic actress bit.

Now, whether or not you concur or not, outside of bad timing – The father spoke the truth, it’s just that Angry paranoid white folks were listening. Outside of that, Pfledger told the truth, and their ain’t nothing ever wrong with tellin’ it like it really is.

Tell the truth, shame the devil…

The Father spelled out how “White Privilege” told the Clintons they’d walk away with this election. But, and I’m talking a big beautiful Donna Brazil butt; a man without a plan… is not a man. Same thing applies to a wo-man. Hillary had no plan past Super Tuesday. So her and her man Bill, went with what they knew, playing the racial dozens.

Hillary’s arrogance caused her to take for granted she’d win the top slot. Perhaps this is derived from her childhood, growing up with a racist father, being a Goldwater Girl (Google it), being the product of all the best neighborhoods and schools, being the first Black president’s ol’lady, being anointed Big Apple Senator, all this guaranteed – in her mind — she was in — like Lynn…Swann that is.

And, yes, along comes an Ivy League educated Mulatto man called Obama to derail Ms. Clinton’s coronation. She is now an wounded political animal, a multiply scorned women capable of damn near any thing.

Word to ya’ mamma…Obama

So what part of Father Pflenger’s version of Senator Clinton’s rumbling, tumbling, fumbling, bumbling and stumbling race for the throne is a fabrication or concoction of mis-truths?

The Father’s telling the Burning Bush truth – Hillary, and the liberal Army of female Amazons she heads up (go Google that’s a compliment, kinda sorta’) have permitted the stereo-typically entitled White girl mentality to bubble to the top… The “I want it all”, or “I cry, hold my breath…”

Aren’t we talking about White privilege, and the fact that it can’t be mentioned, it’s taboo, off-limits to utter the term, forget discussing it. It’s as if this special favor, this clear advantage, this immunity from consequences and repercussions…. is an unbelievable thought, like Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster.

The only racism which can be found in The US today is …reverse racism, qualified white people losing a job to some under-qualified person of color.Gimme’ a blinking break.

Can you White people, yes you people who say 75% of you – who apparently think and react as a angry, paranoid monolithic group, be so simple-minded as to think – if you don’t admit you’ve systematically, tactically and deliberately stacked the cards against Black people, than the controversy, the frustrations – would all just go bye-bye? Disappear?

Or, is it you simply don’t want to hear the truth? Could care less? Keep your bellying aching to yourself…!

My Pop’s loved the “Planet of The Apes” movies. I remember him getting a kick out of the scene where the High Council apes strike the “hear, see, nor speak no evil” positions.

He’d today equate them to Cheney, Bush, and Condi and he’d be so very right. This is a nation which sympathized and offered half-ass weak excuses for these bastards turning their backs on the Big Easy.

So why be shocked when those power hungry top shelf citizens facilitate, enable petrol to soar to $7.00 bucks a gallon, milk $9.54 a gallon, as long as they, the few at the top…. are financially prospering.

This country, the US of A needs more Nigger Lovers. America needs White people to give a damn about somebody else but themselves. The world needs White Americans to adopt the humanistic attitude of “I am my brothers keeper,” “we are all in this — together.”

“All for one, and one… for all,” as opposed to judging people not by the content of their character, but by the color of ones skin. Assigning value based on skin hue, what’s between your legs and what’s in your wallet.

Without question Right Wing, conservative, fanatical bible thumpers… need to embrace a Nigger Lover mentality, but so do the Democrats, the hard working Blue Collar White folks, Reagan Democrats, NASCAR Families, the salt of the earth… need a few more Nigger Lovers to boldly step up and speak out like Father Pflenger has.

The world of politics should take a tip from Tiger’s wife, a Nigger Lover, who apparently is not afraid nor angry with people of color….
