As if brothers don't have enough to answer for.
Yes, answer for. We've been hiding behind this "woe is me, the Man's marked me for genocide and sisters diss us" crap. Oh yeah, folks what us hung and flayed like a prize elk. But have we been stepping up? Of course. Millions of us. But millions more emulate clowns like Isiah. Or Diddy for Godssakes. Or rappers and athletes and others who literally either buy into or get paid by the gatekeepers of this white ethos that we are dumb brutes, loud slicksters. Carnal beasts. Urban thugs. Dirty ol' Fred Sanfords. Cheating, snarky smarmy Buppies. Wave-cap headed bammas. "Money Over Bitches." That is what's portrayed because that is what we reflect back to these people, rather than bust the mirror.
So Madison Square Garden's going to have to pay MILLIONS for Isiah's nonsense. My boy Steve Mills, a Princeton brother, should have reined this little bastard in. I hope the Knicks fire Isiah. Yeah I know this sounds like the get Vick rant, but folks, we need another body on the pyre to show all of our men to stop the bullshit. Mr. Charlie can get away with it. We can't, we shouldn't. Games must end. There's no reason why Halle Berry, crazy as she is, shouldn't be having a beautiful African American baby rather than the spawn of her pet white prettyboy who "understands" her. For too many brothers, "understanding" our women, our mates, means "let's have a Christ-centered life," or "let's have a crack centered life." Jesus or crack, we need some sort of external force to help us focus and relate. I don't need Jesus to do that. I don't need drugs or macho or some vampire preacher or some made up mumbo jumbo from a Motherland that treats women worse than America does. I need a shared spirit with my black woman. That comes from inside.
The reverse, the other side, can be truly scary. While the vast majority of couples consisting of brothers with non-black females (or males, hey) are based on mutuality, love, respect. You have some fools who still like to avid sisters based on the notion that white women won't sweat you. Or that sisters are cruel and demanding or are golddigging tricks. Hmmm. Many white women will dump you in a nanosecond for reasons ranging from banal and ridiculous to deep seated fear. And yeah, many of them are crazy, too. Look at Clarence Thomas's spouse. She is a right wing lunatic who likely edited the manuscript of his already insane memoir. She was especially hard on Professor Anita Hill, who's done nothing but call Clarence the liar he is. Read between the lines. Stay away from my sick-head blackman, you black women! Well, we may come to a point when sisters say: "Go ahead and have his lame, crazy ass!" They may be nuts themselves, but sisters have hung in there despite our immaturity and public clowning. How long, though. How long? Don't give aid and comfort to the enemy, brothers.
So Steve--pay that women her damage award and cut Isiah loose. Please...
