Sportyblog Saddle Sores: Black ‘N Blue, Racism is Not A Convenient Soundbite, Nor Should It Ever Be One…

October 6th, 2020 · No Comments

So your El Senor Sportyblog Scribe Touchdown Tommy has been Quiet for Quite Ah-While now, especially since I just really haven’t felt compelled to write anything during first the lack of Sports, and then Stick ‘N Ball Sports in general during the never ending, elongated COVID 19 Pandemic Lockdown era we’re still combating…


And most notably by the reprehensible Murders of a trio of Black People, just the latest in a long line of never ending racial violence. Beginning with Ahmaud Arbery whose only Crime was Running while being Black in Georgia.


Breonna Taylor an EMT who was Shot eight times while sleeping in her Bed during a Senseless No Knock Warrant being served by Louisville Police.


And as we All know, the final Despicable Death that Broke the Dam, when a White Minnesota Police Officer sat with his knee on George Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds for reportedly trying to pass a $20 Counterfeit Bill on Memorial Day No less!


As Gory Hell, I wasn’t even very much excited over my Open Wheel Racing’s IndyCar series finally resuming action in Texas Wayback on D-Day’, aka June 6th, when I scribble the following sentiments on No Fenders, ergo my Day Job…


When Motor Racing really Doesn’t Matter…

As I began typing these thoughts on another Day of Infamy, June 4th, Y’all know when China was clearing Tiananmen Square of Protesters with the use of Deadly Force Wayback in 1989! Hmm, Sound Familiar?


A Day of Marked Differences…


As wasn’t it some Megalomaniac in thou White House imploring our 50 State’s Governors the need to Dominate Protesters in the wake of the vile, Despicable 21st Century Lynching of George Floyd…


As rightfully, Americre’s finally woken-up to the Stupidity of such Entitled White Football Stars like Drew They Call Me lots ‘O things Besides Duh’ Brees! Regarding his trying to continue Trump’s Narrative on those Dark Sons ‘O Bitches Daring to Take A Knee; Oh Never Mind!


As the ceaseless Non-stop Din of Corporate Hypocrisy still is Deafening, even if Belatedly the NFL’s Commissioner Roger Goody Two Shoes Goodell Backtracked over his previous stance towards that Rebel Rouser Colin Kaepernick by simply stating the league had Moved On and Nothing will stand in the way of its continued Corpotocracy.


George Floyd’s Killing Matters too much for Corporate Sports on-Brand Insincerity


Since isn’t it funny how Nobody’s talking about George Floyd’s Death; Err Lynching, Uhm Murder Anymore? Whilst we’re all supposed to simply be Distracted by having our Beloved live Stick ‘N Ball Sports back nightly on our Televisions instead, Righto?


While I’m Not One Bit Surprised that that Gory Buffoon in the White House continued Spewing his Bigotry during his Made for Primetime TV Reality Show Down Home Sweet Alabama RNC Infomercial! As somehow apparently they switched Speeches, Eh?


If I were Donald Trump’s Speechwriter, this is the Team Talk I would Suggest



Yet to truly grasp the Political situation of Our Country, and the Systemic, Overt Racism of Four-plus Century’s, then you really need to watch the following Amazingly Powerful Tamika Mallory speech from a Peaceful Minneapolis Rally held on Friday, May 29th below,. Held just days after Floyd’s Murder, which still gives me Chills when watching it now! As I cannot implore her words any better: Do Your Damn Jobs! Which includes you Donald Trump!

But the Hits just Keep Ah-Coming! With No Pun intended, as when will the senseless violence against Blacks, Latinos or Native Americans ever end? Since just when things were somewhat tamping down, as we All know, another White Police Officer Savagely Shot a Black Man seven times in the Back! Propelling the Milwaukee Bucks team to Rightly, and Courageously Boycott playing their NBA Playoff game 5 Wednesday, August 26th vs. the Orlando Magic! Which we know sparked a massive Up swelling of support from the various Professional Sports leagues, i.e.; NBA, WNBA, MLS, MLB and even the NFL.


NBA will Return, But Anger still Burns after Historic Stand on Racial Injustice


And although I was never a Fan of his during his LA Lakers Playing Days, I must say I tend to grow more ‘N more impressed with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar the person and Sports Pundit the more I read his thoughtful and insightful words regarding the life experiences of a Black Male Athlete. As Kareem’s most definitely endured his share of prejudice during his lifetime.


Hope is a Dying Ember for Black People in the U.S.


While the only words I can think of for this most recent Heinous Crime against Jacob Blake is you must be a Coward to Shoot Somebody in the Back, repeatedly! Not to mention the Disgusting Double Standard of Handcuffing a Paralyzed person to his Hospital bed simply because He’s Black!


Blake Shackled to Hospital Bed, Father Says 



And while I’m not trying to compare their egregious plight vs. African Americans, albeit it’s interesting that I just learned of Angela Buxton’s Death, who was the only White Female Tennis Player to first befriend the only Black Female then on the Women’s Professional Tennis Tour Althea Gibson. Before they formed a Championship winning Doubles partnership, winning at Wimbledon in 1956 No less!


Or the undue Censorship the late Charlie Chaplin endured centering around his apparent Communism, which ironically he allowed Buxton to practice on his private tennis court before she turned Pro. As although it was a totally different era, as Chaplin noted in his Satirical 1940 film The Great dictator


“The World’s A Green and Lush place, with plenty of Room for Everyone, be it Jew, Gentile, Black Man or White…”


 VIDEO: Charlie Chaplin - Let Us All Unite



Or in the oft repeated words of the late Rodney King: “Can’t We All just Get Along?”
