To Play or Not To Play (It Shouldn’t Be A Question)

necessities;_socks,_blackso the clippers team were left with a decision yesterday.
“to play or not to play?”.
you know.
that “racist scum donald sterling” showed his natural white racist ass.
well they decided to play,
but they did something different.
they wore their uniforms inside out and black socks.
um ok.
i personally wouldn’t have played.
i did like what president obama had to say about the situation…

President Barack Obama was asked to comment on the remarks during a press conference in Malaysia to which he replied, “When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t really have to do anything. You just let them talk. That’s what happened here.” – taken from( x Just Jared ).

tumblr_lrsgh0Hpwz1r0ralmo1_r1_500let em know barack.
let em know.
everyone should use that little nugget for their daily lives.
i know i am.
in a twist of ignorance,
donald sterling released a statement:

“We do know that the woman on the tape — who we believe released it to TMZ Sports — is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family, alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would ‘get even.’”

Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life.”

“He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them.”

  1. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_and_Mamie_Clark “The Clarks’ doll experiments grew out of Mamie Clark’s master’s degree thesis. They published three major papers between 1939 and 1940 on children’s self-perception related to race. Their studies found contrasts among African-American children attending segregated schools in Washington, DC versus those in integrated schools in New York. The doll experiment involved a child being presented with two dolls. Both of these dolls were completely identical except for the skin and hair color. One doll was white with yellow hair, while the other was brown with black hair. The child was then asked questions inquiring as to which one is the doll they would play with, which one is the nice doll, which one looks bad, which one has the nicer color, etc. The experiment showed a clear preference for the white doll among all children in the study. These findings exposed internalized racism in African-American children,

    Michael Jordan has his nerve as do many black NBA players. They rail against the racism of Sterling but are infected and spread the same disease. He’s infected with self-hating anti-black racism. He put black women off limits for dating and dated exclusively white women and married a white woman. Just as in the the doll experiment, the black children preferred the white doll to the black doll, it “makes sense” that a black man–particularly a rich one like Michael Jordan and many NBA players–would prefer a white (or other than black) woman to a black woman. He can afford the best house, the best wine and the best car so he wants (and can afford) the best woman to go along with it. Well, black self-hate and the adoption of European standards of beauty means that the best woman will have “fair” (pale) skin, an aquiline (pointy) nose, long “silky” (stringy) hair and thin lips and not dark skin, wide (broad) nose, nappy (strong/tightly coiled) hair and thick/big (full) lips.) And see http://www.bet.com/shows/being-mary-jane/episodes/being-mary-jane-season-1-episode-5.html

    • After several years in the NBA Jordan married a Black Woman, had 3 kids with a Black Woman and remained married to her for 17 years until SHE filed for divorce.
      Despite living in a racist society, every Black person who dates or marries Non Blacks do not have some self hating “disease”.I date Black and White men.I don’t think White men are superior, more attractive, more intelligent, etc. than Black men.I love my brown skin, my natural hair, etc.
      I’m aware of intraracism, colorism, racism etc. I see it everyday , I live in Texas ,but I also know that it is not an explanation for everything. I don’t assume every negative encounter I have with a White person is related to race.Just like I don’t assume every negative encounter I have with a man is related to my being a woman.
      Everything is not Black and White, no pun intended.

      • Y Colette, I see little to nothing that you wrote that I disagree with. Michael Jordan’s wife filed for divorce. Correct.

        Every Black person that dates or marries a non-black is not self-hating. Correct.

        Every negative encounter that you have with a white person is not related to race. Correct.

        Everything is not Black and White. Correct.

        Self-hate is pervasive among African Americans. I cited the doll experiments that prove that! And the behavior that expresses that self-hate (as cited in my second paragraph) is the natural outcome of that self-hate.

        Love is love is love. I understand that is a person of one ethnic/racial group can come to love a person of another ethic/racial group and that’s fine. On the other hand, we know that there is a tremendous amount of self-hating racism among African Americans whereby they hate black/African features-dark skin, broad noses, full lips and strong/nappy/tightly coiled hair. And because of that self-hating anti-black racism, they see is superior/preferred white/European features–pale skin, pointy noses, thin lips and stringy hair. I don’t know whether or not Shaun T’s (a black fitness guru) affection of his (white) husband is influenced by this self-hating racism but I do reject racism in all its form and all its permutations. ( I do suspect that his affection of his husband is influenced by that racism because in the USA, we swim in racism/raciat media all day, every day.) So, I cannot agree with the attitude “as long as they’re happy, good for them”. I say “As long as they are happy and not influenced by racism, good for them.” I reject racism in all its forms and permutations–even if it is disguised as “just love”. And I invite you to reject racism in all its forms and permutations too.

        You might think of the difference between “some” and “all”/”every” Some is less than “all” and it’s less than “every”.. So, if we’re talking about 1 billion people, then the all is the 1 billion but the some includes from 1 and up to 999,999,999 people. As you can see, nothing that you wrote negates or detracts from what I wrote. Enjoy your evening.

  2. I wanted them to play, most definitely. As I said yesterday, they want it for themselves, and Chris Paul and Doc Rivers were not going to allow them to boycott because they know the importance of the game. Boycotting was discussed, but at the end of the day, they have a goal they want to achieve. They lost today, and I do not believe the incident had anything to do with that. They were NOT winning that game today regardless lol.

    Sterling’s wife said she did not listen to the whole recording so she did not know if it was him or not. How are you going to listen to some of it but not all? I call bullshit man. It was Sterling’s voice on the recording and the truth will be revealed.

Play nice, stay on topic, and for the love of god: NO SPAM!
