tuesday rant - 5th edition

I wasn't going to do this. I told myself this crap didn't deserve the effort required to type it in. When my blood started boiling an hour ago I realized I didn't have a choice.

Josh Howard - you idiot.

In case you haven't heard, yet another overpaid, bloated ego, doesn't realize the chance he has been given athlete has shown his true colors and opened his stupid mouth. This alone should not be a shock, usually when this happens I simply shake my head and ignore it. Since I don't keep up with sports in general and more specifically I know nothing about professional basketball it usually has little impact on me other than pissing me off because I know that's all the news will talk about for a few days.

But this time, this time my friends, was different. This time the jackass of the day based his comments on the country by saying the following:

As the national anthem plays in the background, Howard approaches a camera and says: ``'The Star Spangled Banner' is going on right now. I don't even celebrate that shit. I'm black.

Apparently his excuse now is that he didn't know the camera was on and he doesn't know why he said that. I know why, because maybe it's actually how the bastard feels.

Does he have the right to say it? Yes. I think what pisses me off the most is when people use their freedom of speech against the same thing that provides them with that right. Don't like something the government does - say what you will about it. Don't like the war - hold up a sign and scream at the top of your lungs. Think you are entitled to something because of your race - wear a button and live your life being pissed off. As long as you stand up and show respect for the country that provides you with that right, I don't care.

For those who choose to exercise their freedom of speech against the Nation as a whole, I should remind you that I have the right to bear arms.

For you Josh Howard, I offer a ticket to the city I lived in. You will love Johannesburg, I promise after that you will tattoo the National Anthem on your bicep.

Here's my comment:
Why are there the Essence Awards, the Latin Grammys, and the Asian Excellence Awards, but no Caucasian Excellence awards?

How come it's okay for some race groups to segregate themselves for the sake of celebrating their heritage and culture, but White people can't do that? We'd be called the KKK. THAT is discrimination in my mind.

Amen brother.....

"Why are there the Essence Awards, the Latin Grammys, and the Asian Excellence Awards, but no Caucasian Excellence awards?"

It's normally because there are no excellent caucasians. Naturally, I'm an exception to that rule.

Preach on! I for one say if you hate this country soo much..quit your over paid jobthat you have..go back to your "homeland" and try to find a team to join there, and get paid what you do here. Ya know, if it is THAT bad here. That is what I thought, not going to do that are you?

PlancksPost said...

Don't be too hard on the guy...he was probably high on weed at the time.
Ah, screw it...Let him have it! I'm a huge Mav's fan or least I was until that comment. How can I cheer a team that allows that kind of crap to go on in their organization? Fire his ass...he sucked anyway!

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

Caught on tape, man. Asshole!

The only country where he could make that kinda dough bouncing a ball around and he doesn't celebrate that stuff?

Yeah, he should visit J-burg to fully understand discrimination. Maybe he should also visit countries where people survive in horrible circumstances like parts of India, China, Cambodia......living in filth, little or no food, lack of fresh water, forms of slavery.....I think I just came full circle.

Da Old Man said...

Guy makes 9 million dollars a year for playing a game. Yeah, it really sucks to be black in America.
I'm trying to find a nice way to say it, but I can't. He's a fucking asshole.
BTW, read a bit about him. He's relatively stupid, couldn't score enough to get a free ride into college. Scored under 600 on his SATs. They had to bend all the rules to get him in, so he can make millions. Yeah, it sucks to be a black man in America. Did I mention that he's a fucking asshole?

HumorSmith said...

Great...nothing I like more than some ignorant bastard mouthing off about how they don't like America. Know what? No one is forcing you to stay, so get the f*** out.

dadthedude said...

I tell you what, I couldn't agree with ya'll more (and Angie twice).

I get pumped up thinking about it, I need to replace this post...
