Days ago, I sent an email to Brotha with a response to the very intelligent and thoughtful post he wrote about the controversy surrounding Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice. It seems that folks were calling for Rice’s head on a silver platter, because he was seen on video dragging his fiancé out of an elevator, apparently after knocking her unconscious when their argument turned into a physical altercation. I don’t know what happened prior to the video but Mr. Rice took a lot of heat from the media holier-thans for what occurred. The commissioner for the NFL Roger Goddell also was criticized for giving Rice such a light sentence. Ray Rice was only suspended two games sending many so called fans and media harpies into a virtual frenzy.
Brotha rightfully pointed out the double standard naming famous white males who have also laid their hands wrong on a woman. To add fuel to his fire I emailed him about a white male MMA fighter named John Koppenhaver who now goes legally by the name “War Machine” (Rolls eyes). If that stupid and creepy moniker just begging for brutality wasn’t bad enough, several pictures surfaced on Instagram of his ex-girlfriend porn star Christy Mack. Ms. Mack was beaten very badly by Koppenhaver, because supposedly he came into her apartment unannounced and caught her in bed with another man. Mack claims that they were broken up already, and he had no business being there, especially considering that he also attacked the man she was having sex with.
The story caught some steam when noted bounty hunter and lover of the blond mullet Dwayne ‘The Dog’ Chapman became involved. Mr. Chapman didn’t mince words while on the Nancy Grace show of the MSNBC network as he discussed what he thought of that punk Koppenhaver. However, because this is a white male, the story died almost as soon as it was born. Many in the media completely ignored the despicable and criminal act of the MMA champion. They haven’t uttered one fucking peep, save the always-ready-to-make-excuses-for-white-men-behaving-very-badly-supposed psychologist Dr. Drew Pinsky.
Dr. Drew, also on MSNBC, seems to have become a how-to on not taking responsibility for your actions when you are white. And along for the ride is his gang of bubbleheaded Barbie clones agreeing with every stupid, arrogant self-serving word that he spews. He and his crew of airheads tried to justify Koppenhaver’s behavior by whining that he had a bad childhood, took steroids and suffered a lot of distress in his life. Well, gosh golly gee! With that entire trauma, it’s only natural and understandable he would be so stressed out as to do what he did.
For those of you dropping your jaw right now, I’m being sarcastic. There’s no way in hell I agree with those dumbasses, and yes I am calling them that. By the way, Dr. Drew, having a so-called psychological expert doesn’t change your bullshit rationalizing of his horrific and heinous behavior. Nor does sticking your head up your ass as if it were sand and you were an ostrich do anything to change the blatant glaring obvious racism and hypocrisy of the media. In case you jackasses were wondering yes your shit does stink too! And if one of you violently assaults a woman, you should face the same pious venom you hurriedly unleash on black males.
Even more troubling is the snide commentary by many on the internet stating that Dog (Mr. Chapman) was just an attention whore looking to get air time. Maybe he is rightfully excited about treating that piece of shit with the same disgraceful disdain that he did his ex Ms. Mack. Plenty of people experience horrible things in their life and they have never laid a hand on anyone, especially not someone who looks like she doesn’t weigh more than 115 pounds. Him being a well-trained combat fighter, Koppenhaver has won many tournaments, and he knew damn good and well how horribly he would hurt Christy. So spare me the ‘he was caught in the moment’ nonsense. Tough shit!
Still, the high and mighty of the media has stayed silent about this loser Koppenhaver. And please do not tell me it’s because the MMA isn’t as popular a sport as football, because that has nothing to do with anything. I don’t give two shits about how well known a sport is. He beat the shit out of his ex- girlfriend. So, he should be getting JUST as much outrage. Then again, there have been white males in the past who committed domestic violence and nobody spoke one word about it.
Race car drivers Danny Sullivan and Al Unser Jr. have both attacked their former female loves. Hockey player Patrick Roy was arrested more than once for domestic violence. Golfer John Daly once hit his ex in public. And boxer Andrew Golota has also beat his wife as well as brutally assaulted two men in his native Poland, one of whom has been in a coma since 1992. Good luck getting the judgmental white media brigade to say boo about them.
Obviously, white males are determined to make sure that the face of domestic violence stays a black one. It doesn’t even have to be just athletes. There is the sickening and outrageous video of a California Highway patrol officer raining blows on pedestrian and Grandmother Marlene Pinnock. Another cop in Chicago was sued by a female bartender after he was seen on video pummeling her practically into unconsciousness. He claims that it was because he was upset his dog had cancer while she says that he was angry, and she refused to serve him any more drinks, which is the policy of the bar where she works. Yet, this brave young woman was viciously attacked because she chose to do the right thing instead of be impressed by a boy in blue. Keep in mind he is 6’2 weighing 196 pounds while she is 5’4 and weighs only 125. Not exactly a fair fight. Shit not a fight at all. That was a beat down.
Yet, curiously when it’s a white male administering it, those very same folks crying out against a black man are quiet. Either thet have a bad case of laryngitis or they care more about persevering their racist arrogance than the very issue they call themselves crusading for.
