Black people have it pretty good in Black Run America (BRA). Despite being 13 percent of the population, Black people have the benefit of controlling permissible dialogue in the United States by dictating what can and can't be discussed.
The prevailing wisdom in America is of Black dominance and superiority in sports, which anyone paying attention to the National Basketball Association (NBA) or National Football League (NFL) would concur is the case.
The fear of Black baseball players becoming extinct in Major League Baseball (MLB) is a cause for national emergency and every effort is to be attempted to alleviate the situation.
Indeed, Hank Aaron had this to say about the new Atlanta Braves player Jason Heyward:
However, the treatment of Toby Gerhart and Tim Tebow in the 2010 NFL Draft highlights something sinister underneath the appearance of Black dominance in sports that undermines the credibility of an entire league and concept.
The legendary Atlanta Braves slugger told The Associated Press Tuesday that Heyward, who is black, "can mean an awful lot to what ails baseball."
Aaron shares a growing concern that there are too few African-American players in the game. It's a concern he expressed again during spring training. He says it's a common problem that baseball has been slow to address.
Aaron isn't wasting anytime promoting the Braves' newest African-American star.
After Heyward's debut on Monday — which included a three-run homer on his first swing — the Hall of Famer was even more optimistic that the 20-year-old rookie can make a difference.
"You don't know how excited I was, and not only me," Aaron said. "I was talking to (civil rights pioneer and former Atlanta mayor) Andrew Young about the same thing, and he wants me to bring him out there to meet Heyward. It's beginning to move through the black area. People are getting excited."
Aaron, 76, says the buzz makes him feel good."He can certainly bring the excitement back, not only for Atlanta but also for African-American players," Aaron said. "We do need to have many, many more Jason Heywards
BRA can only endure as long as the perception of Black superiority in sports is maintained and this ruse is shown all to carefully in how Heisman Trophy runner-up Toby Gerhart was treated in the NFL Draft for daring to have the dexterity of running the football from the tailback position and being a white athlete.
Most white people are well aware of the high crime rates that accompany Black people in which ever city they live, but they firmly believe that with the help and influence of superior white values and morals, that every Black person can be remade into the image of Michael Oher.
White people live far away from Black people, segregating themselves from the crime and mayhem that strangely follows Black people in every city they choose to reside.
Now all Black people are not criminals, though Black people do worry about high rates of Black-on-Black crime. Of course, not all Black people are exceptional athletes either.
For those who fail to make professional sports, the Federal Government quickly can step in and find room to employ Black people disproportionately to their percentage of the population. Jobs with some form of 'Diversity' coordinator or head of 'Diversity' are also a common vocation for Black people.
Black Run America continues because white people believe that if everyone works hard they too can achieve the American Dream. In fact, white people tried desperately to give Black people the American Dream of home ownership that they removed bothersome and unneeded burdens such as down payments, credit checks and employment verification in the mortgage process through a system of subprime lending in an all effort to ameliorate past discrimination in lending.
This attempt of white paternalism brought the world economy to its knees, crashing Bear Sterns and Lehman Brothers, nearly bringing down American International Group (AIG) in the process.
Black people defaulted on mortgages they couldn't pay and were unqualified for in the first place, yet they still had the authority through the strength of BRA to sue banks for predatory lending:
The NAACP filed lawsuits Friday against two of the nation's largest mortgage lenders -- HSBC and Wells Fargo -- alleging "systematic, institutionalized racism" in their subprime lending.The suit would be dropped, but the good intentions of white people to give Black people a hand out in home ownership was obviously not appreciated.
"We have targeted these banks because we have gone through what we can get our hands on, and it seems like there's a real problem here," NAACP CEO Benjamin Jealous told CNN.
Jealous said the group wants "transparency." "We want to see the books," he added. "We are not seeking damages; we just want them to fix the problem."
Both companies denied the allegations.
HSBC spokeswoman Kate Durham said the company does not comment on litigation, but she said, "We stand by our lending practices."
That nebulous term, The American Dream, is difficult to attain for some and the disadvantages Black people continue to have economically in America seemingly disable them from attaining that dream and in the process, live in a perpetual nightmare of Black underclass existence.
White people have created a system entitled commonly know as welfare to help those less fortunate survive while they land on their feet and get their life back on track. These same white people believe Black people are welfare abusers, who take advantage of system designed to help people in the short-term, while Black people use it for long-term economic betterment.
Nothing brings joy to a white persons heart like watching a sporting event on television and learning that a Black athlete survived the perils of a welfare home and the absence of a father to make it through sports.
Nothing brings outrage to a white persons like the notion of a welfare abuser however, especially all of those Black people who fail to become big-time Black athletes that they can cheer for in at the college or professional level.
There is a perception, a misconception mind you, that a lot of Black people are on welfare. Since 70 percent (and rising) of Black children are born out-of-wedlock, the idea of the Black welfare queen has arisen:
A welfare queen is a pejorative phrase used in the United States to describe people who are accused of collecting excessive welfare payments through fraud or manipulation. Sensational reporting on welfare fraud began during the early-1960s, appearing in general interest magazines such as Readers Digest. The term entered the American lexicon during Ronald Reagan's 1976 presidential campaign when he described a "welfare queen" from Chicago's South Side. Since then, it has become a stigmatizing label placed on recidivist poor mothers, with studies showing that it often carries gendered and racial connotations.It has been stated by that local nightly news casts distort the reality of Black people, as:
According to Lawrence Grossman, former president of CBS News and PBS, TV newscasts "disproportionately show African-Americans under arrest, living in slums, on welfare, and in need of help from the community.He is correct, as this news story out of Tampa, Florida can attest:
TAMPA - The din of room 168 at the Economy Inn on East Busch Boulevard occasionally drowned out conversation.The United States economy collapsed largely because of the subprime mortgage fiasco, which was instigated as an attempt to undermine traditional lending requirements to augment the number of Black people who owned homes. When these Black people failed to pay mortgages, banks that held Credit Default Swaps ( mortgage protection) defaulted, posting massive losses that caused the entire system to buckle, contract and basically collapse.
Twelve children ranging from teenagers to toddlers to infants spent the past week here, scrambling across the floor, bouncing on beds. With eyes filled with resignation on Wednesday morning, they were hungry and dirty and they wore the same clothes as the day before and the day before that.
Angel Adams, the mom, was asking for help, as the children rambled about the room. She was homeless and hopeless, she said. A relative paid for the motel room for a week, and after that, who knows. Her fiancé is in prison. Her 1-year-old is named John The Baptist Brown.
With measured indignation, Adams said somebody owes her.
What do I do?" she said earlier in the day. "I have no answers. My family has been railroaded. Someone needs to pay.
"Nobody's helping me."
She remained distrustful of the system, she said. It was a system that despite all good intentions landed her in the motel, in this fix, in the first place.
Others would disagree, saying Adams is the cause of her own problems.
This morning, inside the dingy motel room, Adams handed out a list of her children's names and ages. Across the top: "Three fathers. One Mother. Fifteen Children."
Ten of the children, she said, were fathered by Garry Brown, currently serving a five-year prison term for dealing cocaine. A sampling of his kids' names: Garry Nesha, Garry Brown Jr., Garry Lethia, Garryiell and Garry Rick.
Thus, the hope of giving home ownership to Black people facilitated the economic collapse, triggered massive unemployment (that Black people face at higher rates) and yet, white people were still blamed for practicing predatory lending.
The best intentions are what the road to hell is paved with, and the system of welfare is but another example of white peoples benevolence gone awry:
Indeed, sports is what Black Run America is fueled by and for those unlucky enough to make it to the pro ranks, the fallback plan of welfare and hoping that one of your children is athletic enough for a scholarship to college is the best plan moving forward.
Blacks are vastly overrepresented on the rolls. As the first chart on this page shows, 5.4 million — nearly 40 percent — of all recipients are black. The second chart compares actual numbers of recipients with numbers in the population to show the percentage of each racial group that lives on welfare. Only 2.9 percent of whites are on welfare whereas 18 percent of blacks are. This means that any given black is six times as likely as any given white to be on the dole. Although Asians have the lowest percentage on the dole after whites, they are still nearly twice as likely as whites to be recipients.Given these disparities by race, it is no surprise to find that the states with the most non-whites generally have the most welfare. In the District of Columbia, which is 75 percent non-white, 9.3 percent of the population are on welfare. In 35 percent — black Mississippi, 6.8 percent are on welfare. In some notorious black ghettos, more people are on welfare than not. In Camden (NJ), two-thirds of the adults are on welfare and in East St. Louis (IL) 75 percent of the population gets AFDC.
White people care about Black people and Black Run America so much that they brought the economy to its knees in an attempt to bring about social justice. White guilt is an incredibly powerful force.
Stuff Black People Don't Like includes the welfare queen title, for Black people would never, ever take advantage of handouts and them complain about them afterward, right?
