Stepping Off of Racism
R.Merle Lavengood 3/9/10
Since the election of our first half black President, we as a nation have been barraged by accusations of racism. Anyone half white or more that disagrees with Obama's want to remake the country in his own likeness is a racist.
Contrary to the rants from the hood the opposite is true.
The Professional sports organizations of historically white sports are falling over themselves and throwing millions of dollars in the hopes of creating a black champion to reign supreme over the traditional crackers of their respective sport.
NASCAR, the grandaddy of the good old boy sports created their Diversity Program years ago. By supplying tracks and cars to minority kids to learn on they have high hopes of building a black Richard Petty.
The stated goal is to have a black champion of the whitest sport this side of hockey,
Their dream of a black champion of the Stanley cup is costing millions and they won't stop until they have a 25% black champion like the PGA has apparently.
This historically black sport of stomping your feet in unison while slapping your hand against your thighs somewhat resembling a chicken on hot pavement is very popular in the deep south. Sororities at the black colleges compete for prizes and honor every year in this intensely competitive sport.
The black audience was outraged that a white team won a historically black sport. There were loudly voiced opinions in the media by blacks stating that whitey should not have even been allowed to enter the contest. Jackie Robinson must be turning in his grave.
Racism, just like non-racism is a two way street. As soon as one group or the other demands that their end of the street be closed off then there is no longer a route to move forward as a whole.
