A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
Super-Bowl Champions Russell Wilson and The Seattle SeaHawks . . . What Does Black Crow Taste Like boys . . .?
Being a Black man, I have to ponder if my charges and claims of 1967 type Alabama racism being but an inch beneath the collective skin of million upon millions . . . upon millions of Euro-Americans, WASP, i.e. White people all across America still today are valid and legit.
Well, I don’t have to ponder any longer. Internet sports media websites and sports talk radio seem to more-than confirm the hostility and anger bubbling beneath the surface.
Super Bowl 48 validated and confirmed what I’ve contended for most of my adult life . . . there’s little love for Black folks in this country. “Like” is even a term I’m reluctant to toss-around when it comes to “how” I believe most White folks honestly. truthfully, generally speaking feel about Black people. The term ‘respect” as in mutual respect is a concept I don’t believe most White folks, specifically Conservative (sexist/racist/ elitist) males refuse to entertain in relation to Blacks.
There’s virtually nothing we can do to , dig this . . . earn their respect.
Russell Wilson became the first QB to pass for at least 200 yards, 2 TDs and complete 70 percent of his passes, 3 runs for 26 yards, over 8 yards a carry on average . . . in a Super Bowl win without being named MVP. He had a 121 Qb rating . . . Russell Wilson is the fourth quarterback to win a Super Bowl in his second NFL season, joining only Kurt Warner, Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger. Wilson, who has an NFL-record 28 wins in his first two pro seasons, and he threw no interceptions in the playoffs – nonetheless it’s as if he’s a sidebar/side note.
Russell Wilson is still a camouflaged “thug,” a thug in disguise to millions of White folks, while Stanford grad student Richard Sherman is a card-carrying West Side Peru Crip . . . who only majored in Mass Communications. It seems his major was right on the money and will serve him as well as a degree in Business Management.
Tolerance - that’s the feel, taste, tone and flavor of what I believe is the mindset of most, the vast overwhelming majority of White Americans towards Black Americans as opposed to an accepting and welcoming mentality. Wilson will be tolerated, not accepted, adopted nor embraced , and that type of tolerance will be half-ass and disingenuous because Russell Wilson embarrased a, if not the Greatest of Great White Hopes - Peyton Manning
Jerry Rice was overtly snubbed in Super Bowl 16 when he was dubbed the MVP, but yet Joe Montana got the nod to go to Disneyworld. A form of the same type of disrespect was shown to Russell Wilson by tagging Michael Smith as the MVP .. . the good ol’ boy pigskin establishment just couldn’t bring themselves to anoint the Black Signal Caller when they were all geared-up and pumped-up to award it to Captain America – Peyton Manning.
Russell Wilson is a very, very good NFL Quarterback – in the classic mold of a Signal Caller and Field General, and he appears to be as “good’ a man as anyone, by any and all measurements – yet it’s crystal clear how difficult it is for the American sportsfans base to admit it. To see what appears to be all-so very obvious. Despite his proficient Super Bowl performance – it leaves one to ask aloud . . . is this country, mainstream USA able, capable or willing to ever give a Black person their well earned and deserved due?
I’d like to personally thank Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll for giving Black Signal Callers an opportunity; Carroll is a “good” White man, and in this country today . . . they aren’t that easy to run across. Tragically in the eyes of millions of sportsfans Carroll is little more than a Negro Whisperer; translation - Doctor Dolittle . . . the Beast-tamer – the aging Liberal who can “talk to the animals” get them to play good defenses and operate a simple simple-minded junior college offense.
Yeah I know, how crude does this sound . . . ? In some Republican TEA Party circles Carroll, like Bill Clinton or Joe Biden is regarded as a “Niggerlover” . . . please don’t try to suggest otherwise .
Just consider all the sewer-low expectations Russell just defied; passed over by all the experts and gurus who believed some immobile tree stump of a Quarterback, out of BYU of course “projected” better and they just merely “felt a little more comfortable with.
What does “Black crow” taste like boys?
