Taylor's Death a grim reminder for us all.
Fox Sports ^ | Nov 28, 2007 | Jason Whitlock

Posted on 11/28/2007 3:56:57 PM PST by JohnD9207

There's a reason I call them the Black KKK. The pain, the fear and the destruction are all the same.

Someone who loved Sean Taylor is crying right now. The life they knew has been destroyed, an 18-month-old baby lost her father, and, if you're a black man living in America, you've been reminded once again that your life is in constant jeopardy of violent death. The Black KKK claimed another victim, a high-profile professional football player with a checkered past this time.

No, we don't know for certain the circumstances surrounding Taylor's death. I could very well be proven wrong for engaging in this sort of aggressive speculation. But it's no different than if you saw a fat man fall to the ground clutching his chest. You'd assume a heart attack, and you'd know, no matter the cause, the man needed to lose weight.

Well, when shots are fired and a black man hits the pavement, there's every statistical reason to believe another black man pulled the trigger. That's not some negative, unfair stereotype. It's a reality we've been living with, tolerating and rationalizing for far too long.

When the traditional, white KKK lynched, terrorized and intimidated black folks at a slower rate than its modern-day dark-skinned replacement, at least we had the good sense to be outraged and in no mood to contemplate rationalizations or be fooled by distractions.

Oh pleeese, gun wielding megalomaniac with half a brain.

You make what a year and can't afford a proper security system to protect your family?

It's not like he was shot at a traffic light in Miami.

Forrest Gump has one thing right.

Jason Whitlock is one brave man. Now he can look forward to joining Bill Cosby and Clarence Thomas as one of the most hated black men in the black community.

He did have a proper security system- it was (conveniently?) turned off.

This article should have been postponed until a suspect was arrested with solid evidence of a link to the shooting. We endured weeks of stupid speculation about the DC sniper events as well. All that speculation was wrong as well. Get the facts straight before publishing an article.

Words like this will get him put in a treatment program.

You’re damn straight I blame hip hop for playing a role in the genocide of American black men. When your leading causes of death and dysfunction are murder, ignorance and incarceration, there’s no reason to give a free pass to a culture that celebrates murder, ignorance and incarceration.

Sweet.

No, no, no! Just ask Jesse Jackson, Barack Hussein Obama, Al Sharpton, the NAACP, and the rest of the race pimps...it’s all the fault of the white man!! No one alive today in America was ever a slave, but it’s all the white man’s fault! Reparations have been paid since at least 1964 (trillions of dollars) but it’s all the white man’s fault! Repeat after me: “It’s all my fault!!”

I’m a Redskins’ fan and it’s a great shock Sean Taylor is dead. He is an amazing athlete in his prime. It’s almost like Len Bias died of cocaine overdose back in 1986.

Well it’s racist to point all this out because, after all, it’s a “black thing”. Rap and gangster-rap videos glorify violence and are filled with soft-core porn, but hey, it’s a black thing. Fathering many kids with many women is a black thing. Statistically, the number of unwed mothers and children who never know their father is somewhere above 60% in the black culture. Black women have multiple children with multiple fathers, but hey, it’s cool. Obviously, the black-on-black murder rate is way above the national average. The prison population? Blacks are ten times the represented population in prison than they are in the general public.

It is a culture that has by-and-large been rotted out, and white people - liberals especially - have enabled, nay facilitated this rot.

According to reports, Sean Taylor had difficulty breaking free from the unsavory characters he associated with during his youth.

Maybe the NCAA shouldn't be so quick to condemn a college from buying a house in a nice crime free, gang free, and drug free neighborhood for gifted high school athletes.

These kids are damned to survive in an unsavory environment because the righteous NCAA demands it.

All their BS about integrity rings hollow with me and they should know that at least some of the blood is on their hands.

Conveniently? and who would do that?
Could it have been it was he was the one who didn't turn it on?

Sounds like another Gumpisim.

I would agree that this article might have been postponed, but Mr. Whitlock was smart enough to say up front that the details of the Taylor case could differ. If they do, it changes not one fact he detailed in his column.

According to his girlfriend, the alarm was turned off to accommodate a house guest who was visiting. The same girlfriend, by the way, who was hiding under the covers and therefore unable to identify the attacker(s).

You would be shocked at how many people don't bother to turn their security systems on.

You would be horrified at how many people don't bother to even lock their doors.

Turn off the alarm? Okay here it goes, stupid is as stupid does.

I know lots of people with security systems and only turn them on when they are not home, myself included.

There’s nothing odd or suspicious about that at all. I bet if you ask around, you’ll find that that is pretty much the norm.

The Black KKK is enforcing the same crippling standards as its parent organization. It wants to keep black men in their place — uneducated, outside the mainstream and six feet deep.

Wow. Writing something like that takes steel cojones. Talk about an inconvenient truth.

I retract my previous prognostication concerning any negative response to Mr. Whitlock's column.
My newest prediction is that there will be none, whatsoever.
I neglected to notice Mr. Whitlock's race when I posted my initial retort.

Taylors father is the Chief of Police in a neighboring city. The guy would have known how to use a security system and probably would have been armed as well.

But Whitlocks article just deserves a single word....Kudos.

“According to his girlfriend, the alarm was turned off to accommodate a house guest who was visiting. The same girlfriend, by the way, who was hiding under the covers and therefore unable to identify the attacker(s).”

Sounds like she had been told by Taylor that they were coming.
She likely hid so she wouldn’t end up like Taylor.
My guess is she knows more than she is willing to tell.

Seems a likelihood that Taylor may have had some big gambling debt, and they were there to ‘collect’.

I’ll wait on the system to catch up with the perps to form a final judgment, but from the beginning I’ve wondered if this was not a random crime, but something coming out of his own life.

I rented a resort property a few years back that had a very sophisticated security system. The damn thing kept going off and we couldn’t figure out why. It was a very large house and it scared us to death. We ended up calling the security company patrolling the resort and had them shut it down completely.

The motion detector can be a source of pain with home security systems. Had to turn it off because the cat set it off. Now my motion detector is a .45 auto.

Well, there’s plenty of times when the cops say the husband is not a suspect- until they arrest him a week later. They do it to make him think they believe his story and to keep him talking.
