A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
Pac is Right: Mayweather is a Buffoon, a clown, a Minstrel,
My mother always told me; “there’s a big difference between people laughing with you, and people laughing at you.” Most of the world laughs at Floyd “Money” Mayweather . . . not with him. Tragically, I don’t believe “King” Floyd knows the 5th grade difference, nor do I think he gives a damn. All Floyd knows is - he’s rich, right here n’ now, today, for the moment.
This may hurt some of you; but here’s what Lord Floyd is . . . “Black Trash” - with money. An Hillbilly with a really good tan . . . and a-lot of moo-lah.
Mrs. Wikipedia says “Hillbilly” emphasize that a person is poor and uneducated and comes from the backwoods with little awareness of the modern world, while “White trash” emphasizes the person’s moral failings – they’re seen as dangerous because they may be criminal, unpredictable, and without respect for authority whether it be political, legal, or moral.
Now you tell me if that ain’t Floyd . . . dipped-in-chocolate?
I’d predict “Pretty boy” Floyd will have a decent, after his retirement. A re-entry into the real world’s atmosphere . . . and he’s gonna burst into blue- flames like Allen Iverson, TO, or pick another mildly-educated, slightly enlightened Black sportsman who has the intellectual/emotional IQ of a 16 year old.
Sharp as a bowling ball I tell ya’.
So when the “conflict” between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao went over-the-top with Pacquiao citing the good book while saying he was not phased by the king’s below the belt shots -“I’m not angry at him,” Pacquiao said in a Filipino TV interview “I still feel sorry for him because he acts like an uneducated person. It’s pitiful to me and I’m praying for him.
“He should fear God.”
Pacquiao then quoted the Lord . . . as in Jesus, not Floyd. “For what is a man profited if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?” Pacquiao said.
Pac is right, Floyd’s lost his soul, he has no moral-compass – he’s a wife beater and a buffoon. He is one-of the worst role models a young Afro-American male population can have. He’s the flip/side of Russell Wilson or RGIII. The last thing you’d want your son to grow up to be like, and the last man you’d want marrying your baby-girl, and if you don’t feel like that . . . I feel for ya’, because you too must be cut from the same lame fabric as this gloved-fool.
You must have had parents like Floyd . . . and God knows we’ve seen Floyd’s extremely, highly dysfunctional family. Might I suggest the god-damn obvious here? That’s the flippin’ problem; Mayweathers was raised by a band of barbarians. Floyd’s family, collectively as a group of Black people reflects a segregated America with woefully inferior everything for poor Black folks, however additionally, individually they reflect a vast-complex array of personal ills, woes and issues which can’t be explained away.
It’s just a bad scene man. A train wreck where they used jet fuel to put out the flames . . .
Floyd personifies and embodies the ghettoization, thugarazation and sadly the Niggerazation of Black American culture. He represents the almost absolute worst of what I believe is Black Americana. Yes, and despite even all his money – Floyd is a failure as a father, a husband . . . thus as a man. Being a wealthy gladiator is irrelevant and meaningless in the eyes of the Gods, any God you may hit your knees for – if you’re a lousy dad and soul-mate.
Unquestionably Floyd’s flaws reflect a moral failing in the Black community. Far too-many Black men place a low, low, low-ass priority on being a father and husband. Every single societal measure undeniably indicates just that. Blame “who” or “whatever” element you wish – but as Black men . . . at this juncture in time . . . we suck. Yes we’re targeted by the White man, but good-lord, we shoot ourselves in the ass everyday. We got to make a change, as opposed-to waiting for Uncle Sam or the NFL to create a program to parent you n’ I . . . so we stay in school, get a J-O-B, don’t beat our loved-ones and shoot each-other.
Please, stop me when I’m lying!
It’s the horrific yet undisputed truth . . . and Floyd Mayweather is a poster-punk for that backward, rooted in the 1910 mindset of “limited options” for Blacks. White folks aint got to hold us back in the classroom or workplace half the time – hell we do a good job of it all by ourselves. Regrettably, we don’t think too-much of ourselves and don’t ask too-much of ourselves. We’ve adopted n’ embraced the White man’s gutter-low expectations for ourselves. We must mentally move-on beyond Floyd’s flawed values and morals . . . or risk history depicting us as damn-irrelevant if not inconsequential beyond placing Obama in the White House.
For me, Floyd brings-to-life Chris Rock’s adage; ”I luv Black people and I hate niggers.”
Desi Cortez hates Floyd Mayweather . . . make your own determination.
Mayweather’s behavior, his primitive perspectives, he transforms into actions makes it difficult for good, decent Black people. His inner-city/urban popularity paints n’ taints the whole barrel. Here, let me say that one more time, slowly, with purpose His inner-city/urban popularity paints n’ taints the whole barrel. A large slice of “us,” a chunk of Black America ain’t got no problem with Floyd – he’s just keepin it real. Put Chris Brown and O’Kelly in this sinking boat – the love still for these men says so much about us.
Floyd’s what’s wrong with us . . . and what we have to change. A “change” the White man has nothing to do with. We need more Boy Scouts, Officers and Gentlemen, not more lost, hardly enlightened, unlearned, lacking any level of worldliness beyond the Black Reservation – which allows them to function and prosper outside of the hood . . . Negroes who’ve no concept of the complex, hostile environment we dwell in.
Floyd’s the product of the individual failures of his family, and the culmination of what centuries of American Apartheid had on Black folks as a whole. Floyd “represents” what this nation gets when you deny generations of people economic/educational fairness and equality. America has created millions of Black folks who can’t be convinced Floyd’s not merely a fool, buts he’s whats wrong with us as a people.
This pains me.
I leave you with this; “If you can control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his action. When you determine what a man shall think you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself. If you make a man think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door. He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one.”
― Carter G. Woodson, The Mis-Education of the Negro
Floyd is apart of that sub-group within our sub-group who are demanding a back-door be made for them.
