So if you're white, it's roids?

I know I'm switching up on my positions, but I'm playing Devil's Advocate here.

ATLANTA - Pro wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife and smothered his son before hanging himself in his weight room, a law enforcement official close to the investigation told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Authorities also said they are investigating whether steroids may have been a factor in the deaths of Benoit, his wife and their 7-year-old son. Steroid abuse has been linked to depression, paranoia, and aggressive behavior or angry outbursts known as "roid rage."

Now, the Chicago man who murdered his wife and two children recently is being "evaluated" by shrinks. So let's be honest, whether you see structural and/or personal racism in society, the criminal justice system etc or not: I don't think they are checking Bobby Cutts, Jr. for roids, nor are any talk show pundits debating mental illness. I think you know what I'm getting at.

As for the roid angle....so what? Vince MacMahon's pr flacks & lawyers willhandle it, and Red Staters with nothing better to do will continue to support WWE. It's better than 90% of the realty shows and sitcoms out there, after all...

STAY TUNED for interviews with authors Lisa Jones Johnson, Cora Daniels, Tananarive Due Steve Barnes and Blair Underwood...

You are too much! You really know which buttons to push! The title of this post is too much.
Okay, I'll bite.

I think it is a shame when anyone, black, white or green comitts suicide, let alone kills his spouse and child. What a shame. Can this be blamed on steroids? Maybe. If it was, it was his choice and he had to know the risks. I think it is shame that these things are out there and we can't do a better job of monitoring what people are doing. I feel sorry for this.

Now, Bobby Cutts is a different animal altogether. But these two stories go to show, that no matter what, you can wake up one day and your whole world is forever changed.

Now, didn't Vince McMahon die in some tragic accident?

That is the one thing strange about this horrible situation and the man who was captured after murdering his wife and children in the Midwest. We seem to be searching for illnesses with the white males, but the black male is a violent predator, though he'd never exhibited that behavior previously, even as a police officer.

There is one unifying theme and this is males, regardless of race, out of control in a society that refuses to give them either help, let them cry for help, or give them bounds. I won't blame it on the iPhone, as you do in your previous post!

A few years ago I had my first colonoscopy. Some nasty symptoms indicated a need for the procedure.

Turns out all I had was roid-rage.

Christopher Chambers said...

Same for me. They gave me an endoscope down my throat, too. If they did the back end first, I hope they cleaned off the tube before switching...hehehehe

The white man in Mo. has a $1Million bail. He clearly murdered his wife and children. Cutts has a $5Million bail. Why? Because he's a dangerous black man. Benoit strangles his kid and wife, and people are asking why?

To all,
I respect anyone who is ready to have a real dialogue on racial issues since that is not what your doing I save my respect.Mr. Benoit
was disturbed enough to actualy take not just the lives of his poor family but also himself.Unlike
the police officer in Ohio, who I doubt used any form of Roids.Whos only form of Rage was directed at his wife and unborn child and probably at his own race at the end of a police baton or Taser.All of these people are or in Benoit's case were sick. I feel for all of these families loss.
If you would like to address
race though, try real racial issues. Like for instance the degradation of women and culture of rape in the Black community,partially in Society as a whole, Gangs and the way of the gun, the neglect of children in the projects and beyond,Crack or slingin rock,wich ever you prefer,
Since you want to point out certain issues thats what I am doing.For instance the involvement
with African Americans and a corrupt form of Islam. May it be Louis Faracon excepting money,pre 9-11,from former dictator Sadam Hussein and Omar Kidaffi. The F.O.I
,"The Gods,5 percenter's,or other Jihadist
Islam off shoots.This coming from one of the White Devils grafted by Yakuh.I wont elaborate more on that myth now, feel free to ask Mr. Chamber's I'm sure he can explain how the White Race was created,grafted,by all that was evil in the Orinal Man in the Caucass Mnt's. by his Scientist Yaku.
The list can go on for some time
on the Issue of Islam(not to be confused with the untainted worship
of Islam, wich in its self is not a bad thing at all, by black people or any other people)and the Ihmans,clerics,Gang Leaders etc...
Who twist these ideas to fit said Political/Racist ideologies that they hold and feed it to people searching for spiritual structure or enlightenment. This and the courtship with radical Islam in the Black Community is something you should address.Especially in a time of War.Regardless if you support it or not.Americans are (Blacks are also this is not just a white issue,its an American issue)dieing over their,and here,because of these issues.
I apologise for any misspelling.
I am a little agitated.
You need to worry about cleaning
up your own yard.If you truly care about your people dont use Race as an attention getter.Address true racial issues.Instead of making up
one, there are enough in your own backyard(and in all of ours)to take care of. I only listed a few.
To all the woman and children
to have been killed by Husbands, WIVES,Spouses etc...I apologize for not giving them enough of a voice in this. They are the innocents who deserve to be protected and remembered.Not used as a tool or made into a target for
anyones perversions.They should have known loyalty and safety,not
violence and betrayal.
Maybe one day when were done
arguing over issues of race and religion in this world,so sad that it will probably have to wait till
then, we can give at least children if not women also an Umbrella of safety to protect them from the actions of wolves.May the anscestors of thoughs that have died embrace them on the otherside.
With Heart Felt Sincerity,

You're actually making a case for black media victimization based on these two murderers? What are we coming to? I realize that the allure of being unjustly victimized provides a powerful pacifier when faced with difficult life situations. But this statement appears to be a blatant case of Confirmation bias. Perhaps you should see a shrink. In your case I would recommend a African-American one who isn't a racist.

Maybe I'm wrong and shouls ee a shrink myself, but I would say white American has a more of a problem with cognitive bias and it's even more evil twin, "cognitive dissonance" than we ignorant culud folks. Indeed, I believe a true indicator of this is when white folks can't see the difference between brother Chambers tossing some vinegar and satire at you, and brother Chambers just expressing some ideas. I think with Benoit, it was a bit of both, but you attack nevertheless. A word to the wise: black people really don't think about Farakhan or even Al Sharpton, all that much. Please, please find a new boogieman. I suggest Al Roker. His scathing attack on Don Imus lost him some fans, and rightly so...

LOL...so that has become standard blog gear, huh? LOL

Sorry I didn't see satirist in your bio, it's funny how you attack me for taking you seriously but not the fellow who pointed out the difference in bail.

>even more evil twin,
>"cognitive dissonance"

Cognitive dissonance is a healthy way in which human beings (of any genetic disposition) question their own beliefs.

Leon Festinger defines it best, "The theory of cognitive dissonance states that contradicting cognitions serve as a driving force that compels the mind to acquire or invent new thoughts or beliefs, or to modify existing beliefs, so as to reduce the amount of dissonance (conflict) between cognitions."

In other words, it's a good thing, it's how we mature intellectually.

Our bias works against this dissonance in order to confirm our positions regardless of the conflicts in our belief system. We see what we want to. So we don't have to face the facts.

Personally, I'm not buying that brand of victimization that Fox news is spoon feeding to whites. It's the same BS that the left has been feeding to blacks for years. Now the right is trying to mentally enslave whites using the same manipulative tactics.

Thanks to cognitive dissonance I can see this today. I'm not falling for the trap of defending someone because their skin is the same color as mine. That is total insanity!

Last question, what's your favorite bourbon? I love a good Woodford when I get the chance, always neat. :)

This boring. A sicko goes beserk. Happens all the time. I'd rather read your author interviews because you're the only writer, white or black, who doesn't pose gayish questions to obscure, gayish authors!!!
