A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
RGIII: Life As A “Black Quarterback In The NFL . . . It’s Rough Baby!
RGIII thought all these White folks loved him about this time last year, but now that the skies have gotten a little stormy . . . everybody ain’t your hunny nor buddy. Call them fair weather fans n’ friends. Call it being a Black Signal Caller in a league that does not want you.
If Griffin does feel as if his back-up, Captain Kirk Cousins ‘s being prepped by Starfleet Command, readied to be beamed-out to the huddle – he’s right. If someone planted a false story claiming Griffin doesn’t want his negative game lowlights to be reviewed in-front of his teammates, then yes, there is an assassin . . . within the tribe.
I’d submit this young ebony Field General’s realizing he really is Black . . . in a White man’s NFL and America. Perhaps his international/military background led Robert to believe fanciful notions like “color doesn’t matter,” “people are people . . . all men were created equal?”
Sorry young Mr. Griffin, that’s not the case here.
Everybody White don’t like you son, yes, they may smile n’ grin while up in your face . . . insult the entire Black race with that “gee, how refreshingly different you are . . . from the rest “ nevertheless, behind closed doors , well that’s another thing.
Now insurt Mike Shanahan drafting a totally different type/stlye QB in Cousins . . . wasn’t coincidental nor accidental, no, it was strategic and tactical. Kirk’s the traditional (White) Signal Caller the Shanny’s were more, dig this,
with. . . . .
The owner, Dan Snyder, once wanted the enigma that is RGIII, Shanahan, and his boy-wonder son Kyle wanted Miami’s Ryan Tannehill . . . .
Unquestionably Cousins is the White horse in the race, the sentimental favorite of a head coach – whose personal friends with George W. Bush, and an Owner who’s turned a rich man’s cold shoulder, blind-eye n’ deaf-ear to the noble Red savages who ask him to cease using the term Redskins.
You know, consider the current “season from hell” this phenom‘s having – I wonder if RGIII has not elicited the ire of
for defending his . . .
Don’t scramble by the fact – Grif , the independent-minded soldier’s kid did take Synder’s pompous position, chalked the “Redskins” controversy all up to
Look, dig this, in the estimation of backups Rex Grossman n’ Kirk Cousins, and both the Shanahans – Robert Griffin is a-part-of Dan Snyder’s “forced experiment,” a product getting a trial-run – to assess if Robert’s as-smart as he comes across. Because after all, the issue in Washington DC is – Do black men have any brains, any heart, any character? That’s the prevailing question, still, today in 2013 all-across White America.
Please, let’s not deny “Negro inferiority” wasn’t the spoken viewpoint up until about when? The post James Harris/Warren Moon era, after 1979? Randall Cunningham, Jeff Blake faced the same assumptions – too-dumb to grasp complicated NFL offenses and too-scattered brained and too-faint-of-heart to stand-tall in the pocket under pressure and decipher complex defenses.
It’s the identical assertions Black doctors, college Professors, Dentist, Rocket Scientist and US Presidents contend with everyday. If I’m lying or grossly exaggerating . . . let me know.
Donovan McNabb attempted to enlighten Griff, but being young, dumb and arrogant the self-labeled “color-blind” kid thought he knew everything – alas he dismissed McNabb’s words to the wise. Now it seems he understands life in the NFL, for a Black Field General, tain’t no joke.
Mr politically Independent minded RG3 ought to have headed the suggestions of a man who just went down the pothole filled road he has yet to travel,and he should of listened to McNabb, because Donovan as once the same “company man” who dismissed the issues of race, then the day he said race “matters” in America, in the NFL – Rush Limbaugh had no trouble assembling a journalistic lynchmob to go after #5.
Here. permit me to be brutally blunt and shark-tooth sharp – In suburban barbershops, rural diners and below the Mason/Dixon Line sports bars you’ll find Confederate flags and Nazi Swastikas and the opinion -If a Black QB is not performing like, then he’s on a short chain – the mainstream,
I say conservative White male fanbase, sponsor pool and established media are quick n’ happy to betray and abandon him, see Vince Young.
Why you ask?
Because Black folks are tolerated, not accepted. Do you understand the difference?
I think this kid thought the Shanahan’s liked and respected him, that’s why they were at the his wedding, where he married a White girl. I bet, silly-ass me, RGIII thought, at the time of his wedding – Mike, Kyle and Dan were his friends.
I bet he doesn’t feel quite that way today.
RGIII, like Tiger Woods is learning that White people weigh n’ measure you by the color of you rskin, not the contents of your character. You get maybe one chance . . . boy, then you stand the possibility of having to endure Vince Young’s fate. Marked, branded, going from the Heisman trophy winner to can’t get a job.
I’ve been telling this kid to put on the Soul Classic “Smiling Faces” by the Undisputed Truth . . ..
See, RGIII thought his wit n’ intelligence would be interpreted as positive attributes, but like an smart, assertive woman being branded an aggressive bitch, he’s a bright young Black man being branded an arrogant, uppity Nigger who does not know his 1967 assigned place.
Robert, they’re trying to put you back in the 3rd class seat they put us in - don’t let the bastards have their way son.
