You Can’t Get Too Caught Up In Yourself (Simone Biles)

So Gymnast Simone Biles decided to withdraw herself from the Olympic competition to focus more on her personal well-being, and that move has further propelled a questionable political agenda. Some are failing to see it, but it was quietly happening for some time, and now they want to attach mental illness to it. There’s an attack on Black Female sports figures. They’re looking for every reason to get you out of the competition whether you self-disqualify like the case of runner Sha’Carri Richardson with the dope thing, or you take yourself out by claiming injury, or other personal reason impedes your win like Naomi Osaka. They’re even citing over-masculinize female track & field runners for disqualification even though they are naturally born women who just pump a lot of weights. Many of them being affected in the sweep are Black Women runners known to win races. Now if I was a White Girl growing up somewhere training for The Olympics, I would rather be in there competing with Black Girls because it would force me to bring my game up. You don’t want to travel The World competing with weaklings in your race, walking around with a gold medal you won too easy. In the 1968 Olympics held in Mexico, with the two Black American track & field Stars, Tommie Smith & John Carlos standing on the podium barefoot with their gold and bronze medals, raising their Black Power Fist in civil protest in that iconic pose, along with them was that White Australian Gentleman Peter Norman also wearing a social justice badge in protest, and his silver medal as a testament to his skill to be up there being honored with them. I have more on that story here. Now, when Hitler attended The Olympics held in Germany in 1936, he expected his Ubermensch (German Superman) to win, but Jesse Owens, our Black USA Superstar won, and do you know why? Well, the heat of the racist political atmosphere weighed so heavily on this poor soul that he was running for ALL Black People, and proved that he was The Greatest. You know who else was The Greatest? Muhammad Ali. Now, in our time, this issue still exists in just about every competition when you’re Black, and it’s a shame that these Black athletes even bother to represent a country that treats their people like shit. Many have a lot to say about Simone Biles’ decision, some positive, and others insulting. And what I have to offer is an alternate perspective. Now Simone, it’s all the same thing. You won gold medals before, and you are the only one capable of those historic gymnast moves you did not too long ago so fearlessly within your same physical capacity. Anyone deliberately getting you to doubt yourself or distracting your discipline away is not truly with you or care about the team. When Greats like LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and others had to carry the weight of their team and be The One scoring the gold while injured, it was their destiny, and you were poised to do the same, even after being shaken from something racist directed at you in the media or in the locker room like Gymnast John Orozco. Simone Biles has already been anointed with the title ‘Greatest Of All Time’ doing gymnastic moves named after her, and accomplishing these historic things under less pressure, and in a more supportive environment. So what we’re seeing with her right now, with what they’re calling a mental health issue and parading in the media targeting other Black athletes is completely unfair and racial. What it really is from a Black standpoint, is dealing with the pressure. A young White female doing anything be it sports, or whatever, is not confronted with the same racial issues or tension to strive and obtain something. Just growing up myself being involved with academics, sports, fine arts, etc. in competitive ways, sometimes I was the only Black there or one of the few Blacks in something, and I knew I was representing my people. This is not unusual for conscious thinking People Of Color even if they’re Hispanic, Asian, or other. You know damn well that you’re this Colored person there and you’re competing with these White People, and you become highly aware of yourself there representing your race. Now if the situation was turned around and some White Male or Female entered into a heavily dominated Colored Competition, be it entertainment or sports or whatever, you better believe that those dark ethnics notice you and are wondering what the hell is he or she doing here. And you know what White boy or girl? You better bring it. You better be just as good or better representing your people bringing some kind of honor so they can be proud of you back home, because you had a right to be there and you won, or came close to. And I’m proud to say that in my case back in the day, being the only Black from my District submitting for things and winning, and coming up on people’s radar, made me even more aware of race, social status, and politics early in my life. And I made sure I looked nice in my outfit, spoke properly, carried myself well, and did the right things. It also helps when you have parentage or other Mentor educating you about race & prejudice, and giving you the pep talks you need to hear, to see yourself through it. That’s why some of the stuff I say sometimes against people coming at me, is all a part of an intellectual arsenal I use in dealing with bigotry. Your repertoire of defense needs to be developed no matter what race or culture you are when you’re out there, because you’ll run into some racialism. If I was a White person dealing with a Black Prejudice person barking at me, I would know what to say also. And sometimes what pops out of my mouth or what I type back to somebody might sound racist, but hey, you started it first, and biting back at you is just a game to me. Now I say all this just to make a point. With Simone Biles’ situation, we’ve seen something like that before concerning Gabby Douglass, another dynamic Black Female Gymnast who was dealing with race issues behind the scenes. They were both surrounded by White Trainers in a White World who along with other Caretakers, failed to protect them from sexual molestation at the hands of an approved Doctor as I described here, but they were also unequipped to mentally and emotionally reach those young Black Women in the right encouraging way. Now if both Gabby and Simone had Kobe Bryant or some other Black Big Brother or Sister continuously talking to them, like how we know to, those young ladies would have had a similar message told, that was reinforced in me at a young age, and they would be seeing that White World and themselves in it through a different lens. This is true for Hispanics, Asians, Indians, Arabs, etc. Such encouragement is very important. It protects you from pressure and feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders. Instead, you would be realizing that your ethnic ass got up somewhere because you are that good, and you are the only one there, and you know what, you are competent enough to beat those people and win that prize. And somewhere in your head along with the other things you’re telling yourself, you’d know that you are The Greatest.

ECSTASY OF THE RAP GROUP WHODINI DIED 🎤🧥🌆

 

 Whodini – “Five Minutes Of Funk”

I’m not going to let reckless events happening in 2021 throw off too much of my orderly list of topics this year like it did in 2020. So I’ll discuss my controversial views on that recent Capitol Hill Insurrection and other political stuff as they play out, AFTER I see whether or not a transition to President Biden happens or not in the coming days because it’s important to see people make their own independent choices sometimes without outside influence. For now, I’ll entertain you with the recent passing of a Rap Icon I felt should have received more mainstream coverage.

I recently learned that John “Ecstasy” Fletcher of the Iconic Rap Trio Whodini, died at age 56 on December 23rd 2020. The cause of death is unknown. Whodini was one of my all-time favorite rap acts. I simply loved their rap and fashion sense. I don’t have much to say because in cases like this, losing yet another musical favorite, I just grieve and enjoy the nostalgic past.

Kaepernick’s NFL Workout Fiasco 🎟⚽🏆

 

 Eric B & Rakim ~ “I Ain’t No Joke”

Audemus Jura Nostra Defendere 🤾🏽‍♀️ 🤾🏾‍♂️ We Dare To Defend Our Rights

It was a disaster for the NFL, not him. So here’s what happened since we last left off with Kap. While the NFL tries to repair its image back to the heydays by getting 2 top Hispanic Singers, Shakira & J.Lo to sign on as performers despite other top performers who’re mainly Black refusing to because of the whole ‘side with Kap’ thing, to attempt to resolve it, they reach out to Colin Kaepernick. The NFL wanted the Workout to be held in a controlled environment of their choosing where the media will learn what they chose to disclose, but being a Conscious Brother, Kap wanted the venue to be more public so the people can see what’s going on. They should have never reached out to him! If there are still some grievances, that was a mistake. It wasn’t negotiated properly. I’m with Kap. After hearing the shit, he was right. At first, listening to the news account, the real info didn’t get out right why it sounded like Kap was a no show until the cameras got on him to explain what happened. It was a set up! A Black Idiot ESPN Commentator, Stephen Smith, always had something negative to say about Kaepernick, and he jumped on it the day before the Workout saying to Kap through the camera & pointing his finger, “You better show up.” Well he did, but the event created more problems than solutions. Had they just left Kap alone, it would have been better. What’s really going on here is that they don’t want him back. It’s like Fuck You Kap, you first took a knee on August 14th 2016, then got others to take it with you & ruined our brand, you sued, we paid you, now move the fuck on, get lost, go play with another league, but the public agrees with you that you should have your job back with us since we’re a GIANT football league here in the United States, having not worked in 3 years & you want to play ball. And he proved he was still fit & ready to play at the Workout. To be fair here, this whole conflict could have been avoided from the very beginning had some legally thinking person, left him the fuck alone. You see him there taking the knee refusing to recite the National anthem, just make a quick positive press remark about it and play ball. The NFL later on letting their blood boil, creating a big stink around it due to mounting political pressure from Trump, caused it to escalate to a valid movement. Ignore his Black Ass, get your press people on a side note to articulate some encouraging social change argument to explain his protest on YOUR football field and protect your brand. Nobody would have cared much had they kept everything else about the game, merchandise, & the half-time show. And stop focusing the cameras on him too much, it’s fodder for a trouble-making press person. The problem would have went away with the right grace & tactic. Is the NFL responsible for police brutality? No, but Kap used their platform to make a point. Was that fair to them? No, but it happened. So now we’re here. Their response could have been better. Addressing the issue in a sensitive manner since a lot of their players, about 90% are Black, would have been smart. A carefully worded ad playing on the airwaves supporting the political consciousness of your players would have softened any Right-Wing aggression coming against it to understand, though the games are meant to bring people together, we should strive to continue to repair the problems that divide us. The NFL missed an opportunity to be a proponent for change, when back in the 1980s ya’ll would have dealt with the topic wiser like the WWF, (now the WWE) & G.L.O.W (the original Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling). They had all kinds of diverse wrestlers & were smart to recognize their power in presenting forward thinking THEN on socio-political topics. If you couldn’t do that, then simply funding certain philanthropic projects in poor communities to help improve their daily lives would have been looked on as heartwarming since many of your players came out of there. But instead, after a number of days, the leaders of the NFL decided to attack Kap. Oh shut him up, remove him and let’s play ball, and life will carry on as usual, but a topic like Police Brutality can’t be removed from the table like that. You have a bunch of ‘Niggers’ playing ball for your league earning trillions of dollars for you and you can’t just dismiss their right to take a stand on a relevant topic. There was ample time for somebody to have delicately handle issues like that. I agree it shouldn’t be the elephant in the room when you take your family out to have a good time, but Kap was the player it emotionally affected the most to take a knee and NOT salute the flag, and no one in the administrative level was apparently equipped to discuss a proper method in dealing with it. Most problems can be diffused with the right person managing it. The NFL thought that person was Jay-Z but he drew criticism for some remarks that it’s time Kap move on from taking a knee and NOW some people are blaming Jay-Z for pushing the whole Workout event hoping it would turn out well, but simply offering him his rightful place back into the NFL would have wiser. So the ball is still in Kaepernick’s court. The NFL has not made any new motion towards Kaepernick since then. We’ll see if the Superbowl does well this year with the performances, since its last great success was with Lady Gaga before the Kaepernick controversy, and if ever their struggle with him gets resolved the right way. Anyway, you can enjoy more of Colin Kaepernick since the Workout incident now that sports gear giant NIKE released a new sneaker in honor of him.

Ex-VP, Joe Biden’s Mistake Not To Assume Power Then 🛎☁🏢

Rick Derringer ~ ‘Real American’

Seditio Civium Hostium Est Occasio  😡 Sedition of the Citizens is an Opportunity for the Enemy

OMG, why run now? So my criticism goes all the way back to when Barack Obama ran for Presidency in 2010 and chose then Senator, Joe Biden as his Vice President. At the time, my instincts found that choice questionable. I was expecting someone that made more sense, and not Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. And since people were celebrating it as a successful ticket, I kept my fingers crossed and hoped no problem came of it. Race-Readers were seeing Obama’s move in choosing Biden as a cover, since it would calm down racial tensions if they saw a white male there with him. Somewhere in my head I didn’t think he needed him. Now look, about 6-8 years towards the end of the Obama Administration, I’m seeing my suspicions about Biden were right. The time to run for President was right under Barack to win the succession of power. That’s how it’s done. Only somebody better at the time could beat you. When I saw this ridiculous campaign going along to setup Hillary as the 2016 Candidate, THAT was questionable. It wasn’t necessary. She was there before. That was a problem for many Voters. And before you say, the Russians would have made Trump win anyway, entertain this, were they interfering before? When they saw a circus in your politics and thought about it, THAT was an opportunity to fuck with it. Had the system went the way it should, Russian interference wouldn’t have happened. I blame Joe Biden for all that went wrong and still, with our politics now. His excuse at the time was his dead son, personal/familial issues and so on. Hmmm……. In ancient times if you were Caesar, a Greek Ruler, Pharoah, Asian Emperor, or other Leader, and you were dealing with treachery all around you and death of those close to you, you got your act together and fight back and maintain your kingdom. So I’m thinking the real reason here is to separate himself from Obama and his policies, especially when he went a few weeks ago to tell his ‘friend’ publicly to not endorse him so he can win it on his own. I knew this guy was suspect and to this day many people are still absorbing his bullshit. So now, he expects to win against other capable Democrats, and succeed over an already sitting President. Why this puts him where he was before Obama in the wee political past when he lost running on his own. His best chance was a VP ascending to the corporate throne right after Obama like the Republicans did in the past, but that little mistake showed me how dumb Democrats are, because you had the helm and you let feminism and other stupidness get in the way of something practical. That’s why you see the rattiness and teamwork of Republicans winning seats in the Judiciary branch, and the Senate, and watch them recover the House of Representatives again, because they are not playing with ya’ll. YES, there are problems with them ‘handling’ Trump from the get go, BUT they’re in power now. Do you really think they are just going to give that up? All they have to do, is deal with a Motherfucker, and quickly work to re-instate Republican policies and derail/dismantle Democratic values. WHY??? WELL, somebody name Joe Biden could have stopped it, but failed to do a critical move at the time that would have kept all this shit we’re seeing right now at bay. Had Russia seen a normalcy, an interest in pimping a Candidate would not have been there. Now the Ex-Vice President, so-called forerunner, is openly being attacked, disrespected by fellow Democrats and they have a right to. He got in it with Cory Booker and Kamala Harris over the race thing both times in recent debates. Hmmm, is a circus happening again? I don’t blame Trump behaving the way he is. He’s doing the right Republican move. Oh, I’m up here as President of the United States of America. See me make a trip overseas talking to Dignitaries, other World Leaders and so on. Who are you? I’m not worried! He can keep doing that. If you Democrats don’t get it together, you’re gonna lose.
