Great video interview of football great Burgess Owens by Steve Malzberg.
Some quotes from the interview:
"The pathway that the black race took is exactly the pathway that america will take if we don't become engaged and become aware."
"When we see the black family today is exactly what the american family will be if we don't wake up and understand that is that has been done to us over the last hundred years."
"95% of black americans have voted for the same party for the past 40 or 50 years."
"There should never be a time when 95% of black capitalists vote for the same person as 95% of communists... There's something wrong with that scenario."
Owens has written a book, "It's All About Team: Exposing the Black Talented Tenth"
Link is to the video interview.
I viewed part of the interview, today. My goodness...this guy “gets it”!!!
How long before he’s labeled an Uncle Tom, or that they say he’s not black enough, or not authentically black like they did with Herman Cain.
What an obvious and elegant analysis. Brilliant.
Does this mean Mr. Owens is a “WHOLE WHEAT” craker?
Does this mean Mr. Owens is a “WHOLE WHEAT” cracker?
LOL! That, or a graham cracker.
People like this give me hope. It’s not about race. It’s about the real stuff of life.
I was reading about Dick Parsons and it was so refreshing to read his comments downplaying race. His pursuits have to do with his interests and loves, not with race. That’s so reflective of Martin Luther King Jr’s dream - that race wouldn’t matter. It’s just so rare to see a Black leader who doesn’t much care that he’s Black. He’s a person first - and that makes him appealing to others who identify first as persons.
That kind of thinking and living can unite the races under the banner of simply being persons. I am so hungry for that. That was what we had on 9-11; for a brief time we were all just persons again, and that was what mattered. I want that so much I can taste it.
And people like these guys bring me to tears of joy. Kudos to them!
This guy is AWESOME!!!!! :)
A graham cracker would have played for Cleveland.
The festering pustule that is black racism can only be dealt with from extremely brave blacks.
Let us all pray for their success.
Do crackers come in pumpernickel?
It’s such a stupidly divisive thing. There are PEOPLE people much more than there are black people or white people or red people or yellow people. It happens that due to an accident of history, white people lucked into the wisest, most durable form of civilization known, but that has nothing to do with their whiteness. Absolutely nothing. And the sooner that people of all colors realize that acting wise doesn’t mean somehow being untrue to something as ephemeral as skin, the sooner they will live in relative peace.
Another escapee from the Democrat Plantation...
The Race-hustling/race-baiting Plantation Overseers are not gonna be happy with him.
Ping for later.
If good people like Burgess Owens are Oroes, then is it OK to call any Whites who still support 0 Fig Newtons?
Interesting interview. Here’s his book with sample pages:
When i was young and growing up in Virginia the black famlies were tight and strong and the black community was full of thriving small businesses. And we all went to school togather. Then came LBJ. The last time I went back there, there was no black community.
God bless him!
