The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
This is a post I wrote in the Oregon sports page and heads exploded:
Since the dumb snowflakes were triggered for having no sense of humor we may as well talk about the elephant in the stadium. Why is it the team is 80% black yet the stands 99% white? Is that racism or is it something else?
Everyone in the stands wish they had half the speed and talent on the field and most the field wish they had the ability to afford seats in the stands although 5 or 6 will be able to afford dozens of seats in a year or two and that is really the answer to the racism question. Both groups are chasing their dreams. Capitalism is the strongest survives and thrives and fueled by chasing dreams.
Blacks for the most part are using their talents to improve their economic situation. Unfortunately, inside the black neighborhoods there are a few ways which they believe they can improve their situation from generations of cultural beliefs. There are basically three main ways out of their situation which are sports, rap or music and crime or a combination.
Blacks in general have a superior physical ability from thousands of years of living in a very physical living existence. In the Africa days when being chased by a lion or jaguar you didnt have to outrun the cat you only had to outrun the kid next to you which by natural selection made surviving generations faster and stronger so Darwin was right about something as they adapted to their environment of eat or be eaten.
Today you see kids in black sections of town becoming wonder kids on the field and they are competing to get scholarships and eventually winners of lifes lottery into the NFL. The problem with lotteries is only a very few win them and those kids eventually have to beat physical specimens like Freeman Rolls and fall short since Freeman is the one in a million who has all the God given tools in one package which is a true rarity and why we appreciate those rare talents.
Only about 10 of these amazing Ducks will make their dream come true as the other 80 will have to rely on their education to get a job doing something else. The tragedy comes if they dont take full advantage of the classroom opportunity.
The stands have the same competition only rather than competing against the Freemans of the world they are competing against each other. They have been taught for thousands of years to compete in the classroom to prepare to compete in the corporate world in the same way and have won that competition enough to purchase the tickets to attend.
Rather than having to beat the Phil Knights of the world those whites in the stands only have to beat the 50% who they are competing against and make a choice to value purchasing those tickets. Some of the whites in the stands have tried the athletic route and found out early they do not have the physical talent to make a living and were encouraged to take the education field to compete in the corporate world and work just as hard as those on the field in the classroom to get their ticket to economic freedom.
The fact that 80% of the players on the field are black and 99% of the fans are white is not racism, it is simply cultural. There is no right or wrong answer to is this racism or is it cultural as much as an observation which nobody wants to talk about for fear of being called a racist or Uncle Tom. This issue continues to exist and those blacks who chase that lottery ticket and fail to win are the tragedies when they have no learned skills for the corporate world for chasing a dream which is nearly impossible to catch and fall back into poverty.
Now the local thought Nazis are going to scream racism since they never want this said or talked about, but scream away. Some of us dont have a racist bone in our noses so who cares what others accuse, they should look in the mirror. Most of the time people accuse others of what they are.
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
And a lot of those Whites are going to stop watching millionaire blacks spit on the flag, the country and all of them. Stop the politics in sports or rot in Hell.
Will gates talk about UBI right out of the movie, ‘Obsolete’?
Civil War II draws ever closer today.
50 years of Marxist indoctrination in our failed Public Schools has produced a generation of entitled, spoiled, ignorant fools.
Sides will be drawn on the playing fields of America this Sunday. We are about to find out what the people of this country are made of.
Deep Staters at work Susan Collins Rand Paul all the other running us destroying the president’s agenda just what we need
Problem is when the left loses the race card they have very little to play since their party really stands for nothing at all.
Thanks for thread A.B. OMG Trump offered an opinion on lack of respect in NFL and now all H is breaking loose. He will be personally blamed for their decline in viewership (instead of their provocative nascent disrespect of our flag and everything else American).
Problem is if it wasn’t that it would be something else. They’re always going to be after Trump.
Its nevermind going to end.
The only thing we can do is continue to help him drain the swamp.
Morning AB, All. As always, thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably and keeping the peace with gentle thread policing. Thank you Bray for weekly written wisdom, Thank all yon contributors for excellent commentary to flesh it all out.
Below are the words from my daily political diary. It is quite long so scroll on by if not interested. But do stay around and add your commentary and point of view to the thread.
Compilation of top ten dumbest things so far this year, politically. Only got six so far, welcoming entries.
The infamous Mitch McConnell comment about having a president who does not know what he’s doing is the number two in stupid political action in 2017.
For the record and for a smile, appointing that Anthony Scaramucci as Communications Director is one of the top ten of this category. What was Trump thninking?
John Mccain’s vote AGAINST repeal and replace obamacare. He won’t go down in political history as a hero. This action will be remembered as a selfish act of revenge and anger.
Steve Bannon saying firing Comey was dumbest political move of modern times. Comey is Director of US, the people’s , FBI. Just because keeping him around would benefit the elected politically and keep them in the know .NO he’s a crook and a liar and Mr. Bannon I used to really like you but you forget who those political cheats represent.
Hillary Clinton’s entire book “What Happened” is a big mistake, beginning with the title.
UN comes to town-Trump’s speech
And yeah, I think calling that fat dictator with the world’s worst haircut “rocket man” is sheer genius.
Also, yeah, Iran is the WORST deal with America in the history of the planet and thank God Trump had the courage to say it out loud.
George Dubya would have called him a “fellow earth dweller” or some such.
Finally, the absolute BEST part of the speech, besides Rocket Man possibly, was when Trump said he will always put the United States of America first as all those U.N. representatives should put THEIR country first.
Somewhere there are stupid liberals all angry because this nationalism is so out of style. We all live on this world, do we not? If Kim Jung-Un decides to launch a rocket to either Russia or America, we should not care as we all share the same planet. Right?
Common sense. Only the common people have it.
Celebrities and Stars Keep Us Straight.
And we for sure need a bunch of silly female actresses, to include Dolly Parton, to call our President a bigoted, white supremacist I didn’t know that about Trump. Thank you Lily Tomlin and the wonderful, patriotic and beloved Jane Fonda!
Of course the football players are teaching us how to belittle a country that gave them what no other country on earth would do.
Here’s what they have to learn. And it might take a while but give it time.
For us commoners with the common sense are made mighty by our numbers. Us commoners with the common sense are also handicapped by our numbers.
There are MILLIONS of us. We watch football, tv and go to movies. If those who refuse to shut up and act, or shut up and sing or shut up and dance, get on our nerves, we takes those huge numbers and walk away.
It takes a while and it’s a weakness. There is no Rocket Man Kim Jung-Un to put us all into jail, beat and torture us, should we not mind our masters.
So they might keep up their stupid political tirade but soon enough, we will be gone.
The Wonderful Valerie Plame
She served meals in the CIA cafeteria although the fake media called her a spy.
She is married to Joe Wilson, the liar who got Scooter Libby involved in an investigation because Scooter told the FBI that he wore a red jacket yesterday and they had a pic of him in a blue one.
Yeah, you better not lie to the FBI or you will be marched off to jail. Especially when the FBI is investigating some fake rumor in order to punish a politico for daring to talk back to their superiors.
Anyway, cafeteria worker Plame tweeted a link to an article written by an asshole titled “Jews determine America’s wars” or close to it.
Sure she came out in the morning and said she was sorry but she’s not people.
Evidently these people hate Jews it seems to me. Valerie has to take off her cafeteria hair net in order to tweet.
The same thing will happen to Trump, Manifort, Sessions, .any one of those guys should they declare wearing green pants and were proven to be wearing red.
Because they just want money to investigate nothing and they want to punish those who they hate.
Like the love Valerie Plame and sweet, sweet Joe Wilson.
Coming soon to an FBI investigation near you.
Weekly Wrap Up
President Trump delivered a great speech to the UN with a dire warning that “Rocket Man” has to stop.
Of course the media mavens went all atwitter about using Elton John’s song to dub an evil dictator.
I think it’s a perfect name, some fat asshole with an awful haircut shooting rockets all the hell over the place, a little nothing-burger and the world is sick of this guy.
President Obama and President Clinton did nothing ever but pay the guy off and tell us stupid Americans that it was a good deal for everyone involved.
The NFL is not doing too well it would appear because, folks, it ain’t, heh, rocket science. People that like football don’t want to see a lot of lucky losers who got a chance to earn money by playing the fame they know best mock our national anthem and other symbols.
We’re not going to watch the Emmys any more either. Not when we have that horrible woman Jane Fonda mocking our President when she aligned herself with our enemy once upon a time.
And Lily Tomlin can also go to hell and Dolly Parton needs to explain herself.
Mexico had a horrible earthquake and Puerto Rico suffered a direct hit from hurricane Maria.
Wow, Puerto Rico is corrupt and even their power company is corrupt. Which is while they’re not sure power will ever be restored to this U.S. territory.
We find out that the FBI picked the locks and barreled into the home of Paul Manafort. Scuttlebutt has it that the FBI had a criminal warrant, which allows such things, and not a FISA warrant. If so, why was a criminal warrant issued for the former Trump campaign manager?
Meanwhile, here in the keys we have electric,, we have water but you can’t drink it, no cable, no phones,no fax, hoping it’ll come back on.
It came back on for a while yesterday. I get to see a miraculous win by the Florida Gators still don’t know how they did it two weeks in a row.
The Powers that be decided to let everyone into the keys tourists, criminals, sightseers, you name it.
Garbage piles pile up everyday it’s different world for a while down here.Trump/Scott I’ve done a phenomenal job with the locals leave a lot to be desired.
BOYCOTT THE NFL!!!
Watching Susan Collins sputter and stutter is painful.
Bill Gates, someone who stole somebody’s idea and took credit for it? To be announced...? Why ABC, you can’t get John McCain to come on? Or any other RINO?
I love the Ravens but no, I’m done with the NFL.
Because that whole outfit, players up to CEO, are too stupid to know when they got it good.
I will not watch NFL football until the silliness stops.
We're talking a boycott that could cost the NFL several BILLIONS per year in revenue as TV viewership and stadium attendance takes a major nosedive. That could make the corporate sponsors and broadcast partners openly wonder can they justify the massive per year spending on the NFL from here on out.
Look at what happened to the movie industry this past summer as ticket sales fell 16% compared to Summer 2016. The NFL could suffer a similiar fate.
I’ll watch anything right now!
Two weeks with no cable sucks!
Ally ackbar, fold up the prayer rugs,cable is back on,I’ll even watch Chris Wall Ass I’m so desperate for the boob in the tube.
Wow he has wannnnn on today cant wait for him to open his yap.
