|If you can't blame racism for failure, blame God|
The failure of a company or corporation to properly assess a Black employee’s value and quickly promote them to levels beyond their competence is grounds for an immediate discrimination lawsuit. Restaurants that fail to serve Black customers in a timely manner will be subjected to harassment from professional Black agitators, boycotts and eventual multi-million judgments awarded to the aggrieved plaintiff(s).
Most powerfully, though, and the ultimate trump is the ability to claim virulent racism as the real culprit behind continued Black failures. No known deflector of this accusation has been invented as of it, the toxicity of the allegation a true weapon of mass destruction (WMD) that has been found to be liberally deployed by Black people facing life’s continued challenges.
We've heard athletes blame coaches, teammates and playing conditions when things go wrong, but God?
That's what Buffalo wideout Steve Johnson seemed to do Sunday, after dropping what would have been a game-winning 40-yard touchdown in a 19-16 overtime loss to Pittsburgh.
"I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME !!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THO...", Johnson tweeted.
Usually athletes are thanking God for their exploits on the field. Last week, after scoring three touchdowns in a win over Cincinnati, Johnson tweeted, "Jus Goes To Sho God Is Good N Real! Keep Faith Thru Good N Bad."
The 24-year-old University of Kentucky product, who's had a breakout season, streaked behind the Steelers' secondary three minutes into Sunday's overtime. Ryan Fitzpatrick's pass came down perfectly into his arms. Somehow Johnson did not hang on.
"I had the game in my hands and then dropped it," Johnson told reporters. "I'll never get over it. Ever."
