For the past several days, New York Yankees star player Alex Rodriguez has had some splaining to do with the powers-that-be of baseball. After it was discovered that he used a banned substance, the Commissioner of the Sports decided to suspend him until 2014, or whenever the hell he feels like.
So, when the topic of discussion comes up among the throngs of white male sportswriters, I’m not at all shocked by their reaction, mainly that they feel he is being unfairly persecuted. Sure, some have laid the hammer down, but most act as if they feel sorry for A-Fraud, that he is being singled out, which is hilarious to me considering that is exactly what they did to baseball’s most infamous mega star Barry Bonds.
As I have said before, you would have thought Mr. Bonds ran over a pregnant woman and her 4 year-old daughter the way those bitches were behaving, even though now, they try and pretend that they feel the same about all the cheaters and have the absolute nerve to lump him in with white males. Well, if that’s the case, then why didn’t those bitches act the same way when it was about the white males who cheated, hmmm?
No. They did what they always do when it’s a white male, pussyfoot and vilify as little as possible, which is the same thing they are now doing for A-Roid. Granted he’s not white, but he damn sure ain’t black either.
I have noticed that any time there is a scandal – if even if the person isn’t white – as long as they also aren’t a no-good Negro, they won’t get as much criticism, like the former boyfriend of one time Miss America Carolyn Sapp. Her ex, who played for the San Diego Chargers, is also Polynesian, and she claims that he was physically abusive during their relationship.
I sure as shit don’t remember many white males rallying the flag for domestic violence victims when Ms. Sapp came forward with her allegations, unlike what they do any time the accused is a black male such as football quarterback Houston Oiler legend Warren Moon. Mr. Moon – as usual – became the black boogeyman poster boy for wife-beating thugs everywhere, something that also never happened with former St. Louis Cardinals player Will Cordero who is Cuban and a wife-beater.
Yet, for some inexplicable reason, many white male assholes in the sports media felt an incessant need to throw another baseball star, Albert Belle, under the bus for thuggery. They kept harping on Albert Belle while talking about Cordero as if the two had any relation whatsoever. Fact of the matter is that they didn’t, other than an excuse for the white male media bitch brigade to not attack someone they consider in their inner circle.
At least they do, whenever a true darkie face is around and by that I mean a straight up African. Sorry, but unless I get a DNA history, I refuse to label Sammy Sosa or the late great Roberto Clemente as one of us. The bottom line is if you look close enough to the dominant culture, then those asswipes will embrace you. Rodriguez is light skinned with hazel eyes and hair that is only slightly kinky. So, he obviously qualifies in their little race scorecard.
Although they keep yacking about Tiger Woods racial make-up, he is still attacked because of his black blood. Don’t get it twisted. It’s just like my boy Michael Eric Dyson said, if he’s so fucking ‘half Asian’, why the fuck then are all the slurs regarding only his black side, bitches?
Please. If there was no one-drop of half-pop these whiny little shits would not be vilifying him to the extent that they did, all while happily ignoring a white male quarterback who was twice accused of being a rapist. How fucking typical.
And don’t even get me started on that model minority bullshit which is all it is. A very obvious divide and conquer strategy that some who are Asian can’t wait to live up to but will rush to black folks any time a white person says something to piss them off.
Excuse me assholes, but you don’t get ANY sympathy from me when you do everything possible in the world to live by white people’s standards and it comes back to bite you on the ass. That goes especially for that new “Asian Girlz” song and video made by a group of drunken, horny, white male, frat boy performers.
It’s not mine or any other black person’s job to police the streets of racism, especially when you have a no talent, unfunny cunt like Esther Ku saying that it’s better to adopt babies from Asia rather than from Africa because an Asian baby pays off in the long run. Well, how nice that she sees herself as an investment rather than a believed loving accepted member of a family.
That could also go for any comedian of color who uses the tearing down of black people behind their little jokes as a stepping stone to acceptance in the white culture. It really pissed me off one time when a self-righteous black female of a certain blog was giving crap to former RNC head Chairman Michael Steele for laughing at some comments made by a conservative radio host about Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal. For those not in the know, Jindal is of Indian descent and has, for the longest of times, been trying to fit in, even going so far as to change his first name to ‘Bobby’ so it would sound less ethnic.
Still, that hasn’t stopped the white people supposedly on his own side, from making snide comments about him, like calling him ‘Slumdog Governor’ assuming he was born in this country and didn’t grow up somewhere in the slums of Calcutta. If those same good old white males he hurries to buddy up to talk shit behind his back, well then, that is his own damn fault and his problem, not Mr. Steele’s.
He chose to be on that end not to say that it is any better on the liberal or Democratic side. This is also not to say that I lump all white people in the same category, just the ones from the media, the ones with the attitude that although you aren’t white, you still aren’t black, and in their eyes, that makes you very much ABB, and a shitload more acceptable.
