DENVER, CO. (BASN)–Dan Snyder may have wanted to draft RGIII, but I’d bet the plantation Mike Shanahan and his boy Elroy would have rather drafted Michigan State’s Kirk Cousins first and only QB drafted. . . , they could identify and releate-to his plight ; all the brains n’ heart in the world (of-course) but not as much physical talent and magnetism in his entire body as “Bob” Griffin has in his baby toe . . . . Oh the web we weave, when at first we seek to deceive. Forgive me, but based solely on absolutely nothing else then this tid-bit; Mike Shanahan’s daughter was the college roommate of George W’s. daughter, Jenna . . . yes, just based on that – I don’t trust the man. If Mike can break-bread with George W., chew-the-fat with a draft-dodging confessed drunk and suspected coke-head, . . . man for whom well-over half-the-globe regards as a mass-murderer based-on a needless war/land-oil grab . . . where this Ivy League educated buffone exchanged the red blood of young soldiers for Black Gold, Texas Tea, yeah, if Mike has no problems with that, well that makes him an elitist weasel, but also a Republican TEA Party member Do what you wish with it, but the Shanahans were at Bush’s’ daughter’s wedding . . . they’re practically family. Mike Shanahan, might I say . . . compelled his Denver Bronco players to participate in George W. PR events staged here in Denver, more than once. I’d imagine t some of these GOP extravaganza’s Mike’s had a few cocktails n’ brews with Carl Rove, Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh . . . and I’m sure Rush and the rank n’ file bigots have shared their views on the NFL . . . and how it’s going-the-way of the NBA, becoming far-too Black. Vultures of the same feather . . . , flock together and angry White men who see the nation and the world the same, as a cesspool overstocked, full-of the unwashed, undesirables. . . well, yes, they do all hang-out together, they wash they invisible sheets at the same washateria . . . . Sorry, I was in Texas last month, and laundromats are still called “washaterias” None of these diabolical bastards I just spit-out “like” Black people, forget mutual respect, that’s a pipe-dream. Now, if that’s over-the-top, at the very-least can we all agree; the vast, overwhelming-majority of Black folks would never believe Rush n’ the rest of these good ol boys give-a-flying rat’s ass about our peculiar position in American society . . . unwanted. Or for that matter, they don’t cre about any Americans-Of Color. Or working class folks. Or any woman who’s “not both content and happy” being a whore in the bedroom, a maid in the kitch, and not-a-damn-thing else. To dismiss the idea these type of elitist don’t belong to a monolithic country club which devalues everyone who isn’t a card-carrying member of their fractured fraternity is to be naive , clueless, gullible and simple-minded. Now, if I toss-in the hands-on-knowledge I’ve of the man based in-part on I’ve lived in Denver since the mid 1970′s . . . I watched the man’s entire tenure here. I hosted a radio show on the Denver Broncos official radio station, 850 KOA for 8 years, 1994 till 2002 – I talked to I don’t know how many NFL gladiators who gave me a glimpse into Mike’s head. And least I mention, I saw the Little Dictator at a few high school games,spoke to him a few times – our sons are the same age and played in the same conference . So I believe I’ve got a little-bit of knowledge amassed, perhaps a elf’s mitten full concerning Mike Shanahan, as-well-as . . . and this is critical – my spider-sense have been telling me for years Shanahan was . . . not a very fair nor decent fellow – but after the debacle with Donovan McNabb, the way the Shanny’s handled it, the racist verbiage, the 1964 terminology – which all of it was, if you can decipher Rednecklish, little more than . . . ‘the niggers too-dumb, fat n’ lazy to “man” the alph-male Signal-Caller slot in the NFL.’ After that sop opera played-out, there was no question in my little-mind, and that of millions of other Black sports fans who n’ what the Shanahans are. Give it time, let RGIII not ‘pop-off” and “set-it-off” instantly. Let the ebony lad get hurt . . . the Shanny’s will be doing all they can to ensure Kirk Cousins gets the chance to lead the Washington Redskins. They’ve got a dog in the fight. Rush Limbaugh and his cohorts understand what’s happening to the NFL, in their anti-Black minds the game is a battlefield in the larger internal conflict, the struggle to control US culture, “precisely who n’ exactly what” the US-of-A is and what the country represents. RGIII, Cam Newton, these young men translate and equate into Barack Obama . . . Black men who pose a clear and present danger to the White guys “Top -Cat” status. A ranking these real Americans achieved by excluding their sternest competition, by rigging America’s national pastimes so Blacks couldn’t flourish . . . and white men could artificially predominate n’ dominate. Mike Shanhan and his son are hoping Robert Griffin fails, so they can save the league, save the game, . . . save “their” America.
