DENVER (BASN) — If your going to say it, if you’re going to insult good decent folks – who were victims of a natural disaster, a disaster of epic Cecil B.

DeMills Hollywood proportions . . . then Chris Myers – be man enough to say what’s on your little mind, don’t impishly beat around the bush.

Chris Myers is both a weasel and a coward. And, that’s in addition to being an elitist and a closet racist .

Dig this; Chris Myers guest hosted the Dan Patrick Show this past Monday. During his “best of the weekend” segment the sportscaster succeeded in leveling transparent camouflaged shots at both Black and Brown folks in the same spoken paragraph.

“My best is and maybe it’s a little corny, but I like it. It’s a great country here. We have disastrous issues where people pull together and help themselves and I thought the people in Tennessee, unlike and I’m not going to name names. When a natural disaster hits people were not standing on a rooftop trying to blame the government, okay, they helped each other out through this. Middle Tennessee, where a lot of hardworking, tax-paying, legal American citizens have been affected by the floods and are trying to rebuild their lives and they are helping out and I think that other people around the country, of course the music industry in and around Nashville helping, without making a big deal out of it and I think that’s a good thing.”

“I’m not going to name names? I’m not going to name names!” Really Chris, really?!

Well hell, I will Chris; Black folks, Niggers. That’s the name Myers is tap-dancing around. He’s using Red-neck-lish to speak in veiled White boy code to his racist, heartless brethren who concur with Myers cruel summation of the Katrina disaster.

“Where people pull together and help themselves;” how dare Myers contend Black folks don’t pull themselves up . . . how in the hell does he think we’re still around, still visible, still walking?

Mr. Myers, we, as Black people are only present and accounted for because we have a legacy of “improvising, adapting and overcoming” even the barbaric actions and deeds of the U.S. White majority, who if tomorrow were drug before a global court – would be tried and convicted of crimes against humanity before the sunset.

Standing on rooftops, blaming the Government . . . .

Yeah, believe it, that’s Chris Myers’ observation and evaluation of this nation’s worst natural catastrophe. . . . and he “represents” Fox Sports,” as well as announcing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pre-season schedule on WFLA-TV.

Yes, believe it, these cold, harsh angry, non-empathetic words speak volumes about the angry White man behind the mic. Not to mention, Myers is merely articulating the coast to coast, national Angry White Man Holding Company . . . company line.

His thoughts, ideals, attitude and emotions reflect exactly how White America, that separate and seeing themselves as superior slice of the American Pie – clearly regards Hurricane Katrina and its horrific aftermath.

Un flippin’ believable . . . no? Talk about cold, non-sympathetic Vulcan bastards.

Myers’ thoughts are what the other side of AM talk Radio in America sounds like: Irate White men on the warpath, or at least suffering from their manly end-of-the-month time, bleeding out of their asses, continually, ever since the White House was painted Black . . . .

Hey I keep telling folks, here, in Denver, like all across the country, this land’s only true-blue “real patriots” are on the radio, if you can believe that, and, on a daily basis attacking Black and Brown people.

Here in Denver it’s Peter Boyles painting the President as a bastard, whose mother was a colored man-luving tramp, while daily alternating that hot-topic with attempting to rally the Rednecks into a revolt – where they go door-to-door dragging “aliens” from their homes, breaking up families, sending parents back to a land they may have left at age 3 with their parents 30 years ago . . . in the name of “taking back our country.”

These pied pipers of hate do this on stations which they share the mic with NFL, MLB and NCAA teams . . . go figure?

Mike Brown, former FEMA Head, who is directly/indirectly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of people in the Hurricane Katrina debacle shares the studio with these same Clear Channel crackers.

Yes, that’s precisely what they are, Crackers, guys who would ‘ve 40 tears ago got a kick out of demanding my grand mother give her seat up on bus – have few qualms about giving this mass murderer a 50′watt radio signal to send out smoke signals to other half-mad white males.

“Taking back their country . . . .” I wonder what Sitting Bull n’ Crazy Horse think when they hear that one . . . our land .

. . these cats are delusional, strung out on Hillbilly crack or something.

Middle Tennessee, where a lot of hardworking, tax-paying, legal American citizens . . . .

One can only conclude Myers’ innuendo was a under-the belt jab at racially diverse urban centers, and specifically at illegal aliens . . .

from planet Mexico. This cat just does not harbor any significant, meaningful respect for Brown people either.

And to level the “lazy Mexican” insult, perhaps even the “lazy, shiftless Black boy” shot . . . I don’t believe Chris Myers likes Black or Brown people any more then Glenn Beck believes President Obama likes White folks.

Taxes? Taxes? Who pays taxes but the little people, rich folks and corporations buy political pimps to create “loop-holes” so Tea-Baggers don’t have to pitch-in. Brother’s keeper, all for one, one for all . . . please, all that American brother hood stuff went out the window with integration.

Who does this clown Myers believe cleans the bathrooms, picks the fruit, cuts the lawns, changes little White babies dirty behinds while mommy is at her daily yoga class, which follows her poetry class, which follows her green house class, which follows her twice weekly tanning session . .

. who?

Somebody else, someone “inferior” has to raise Muffy n’ Buffy’s babies, illegal immigrants, who do it – for semi-servant wages.

Upon covering this artificial turf, I must lay this question at the feet of the ESPN and NFL Grand Pooh-Pahs; I’m to assume this SOB, Myers, is capable of offering non-bias sports reporting? I don’t think the slits in his rope are big enough for Chris Myers to see clearly.

Chris fails to grasp the reality of life in the ol’ US of A, Mexicans and Blacks do, and have historically done the vast over-whelming majority of all the heavy lifting; between the two of us, along with those drunk Injuns Myers didn’t get a chance to slight, we’ve provided the land, the Blood, sweat and endless tears of which this blood stained empire was ruthlessly constructed upon and with.

How dare this ignorant of History 101 bastard present this crap as “sports commentary” when it isn’t even factually based enough to pass on “Romper Room ” or “Yo-Gabba Gabba.”

What burns my ass . . . Myers’ comments will be rationalized, minimized, and at some point – justified by, not just the sports-fan, but by his peers in the sports media industry, i.e., the entrenched establishment will want to, at best, at best . . . reprimand Chris Myers for . . . dig this – “slipping.”

Since I can read between the forked tongue language of this racist. I’m here to demand this hate filled butt-hole be pulled from his media responsibilities, under the guise of – he’s a racist who can’t take off his sheet and hood, who can’t even see trapped and dying women and children, Black women and children . . . as victims.

Ain’t that a bitch!

The NFL Players Union would have, by now, fired off an e -memo to Lord Goodell informing him this type of perspective logically prohibits Chris Myers from offering non bias commentary. His racism paints n’ taints his words before the man open’s his mouth. Not to mention, his opinion is insulting, belittling and adds insult to an already major wound.

Why give this guy a mic?

Please note, Myers submitted this racist o-pine on the Dan Patrick Show, the same Dan Patrick who snapped when Bryant Gumbel told the truth about the Winter Olympics in 06 “So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world’s greatest athletes, despite a paucity of Blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention.”

Dan went around demanding Gumbel be silenced . . . for telling the burning bush truth about what the winter games resemble to most people of color. Patrick was also incensed when Gumbel described the late NFLPA head, Hall Of Famer Gene Upshaw as a pawn of the NFL’s aristocratic ownership.

He wanted Gumbel pulled from announcing NFL games. And, for all intentional purposes, Bryant was on the money – there’s no way Upshaw was as assertive as DeMaurice Smith has been.

Well Dan, you and the corporatist media moguls you and Myers work for ought understand; Chris Myers words were both a slap-in-the-face and a kick-in-the-crouch of Blacks and Latinos, at least from our irrelevant viewpoint – what are you going to do about this?

I can only hope Myers is never invited back to guest host your show, and hopefully those who put you before the world, Direct TV, Primer Broadcasting, FOX Radio, NASCAR . . . will prohibit Myers from guest hosting your show.

NASCAR, FOX . . . Gee, I won’t hold my breath.
