My boy the Field Negro recently laid it out there, as I did on Facebook and everyone got deathly quiet, even squeamish. Note that Kobe, Pacman, Tank et all...even Vick, that cretin Plaxico "Dirty Harry" Burress--all didn't get the benefit of the doubt. All got slammed before any disposition of their cases. All vilified. But a white Superbowl QB...one who has a reality show owned by ESPN and ABC's parent...well. I guess Brett Favre has sullied the image of the white superstar pocket protected QB enough once you get beyond Mr. Gisele Bundchen's utterly p-whipped persona. No, we can't have that.
Such is our fully vertically and horizontally integrated corporate media at work. And doing so, as with the stupid coverage of Skip Gates and the Cambridge cops, to the continued censorship & intellectual peril of us all.
As for newsworthyness, as a commenter stated: "Nothing imparts a sense of urgency more than a black penis invading a white vagina."
Here's an NFL video of what Big Ben has to say. Too bad Gates no such largesse from good white folks...
