Black in a White Country

It's challenging being black in a white country.

February was considered black history month. However, I have since noticed a particularly disturbing trend lately and it appears to be more of a remnant of black history that still infects the present attitudes of blacks, particularly those living in many North American and European states. It appears there is still a portion of the black populace that largely hates other races and some of them have been drawn to this space — and probably for all the wrong reasons.

The Root of All Evil

October 22, 2010 36 comments

We are only capable of good because we are intrinsically evil.

Xenocrates

What is evil? The first thing that comes to the mind of many is the wanton and indiscriminate destruction of life by one of another. But evil is far more systemic than that.

The Spanish team celebrates their world cup 2010 win.

Did you see what just happened today in South Africa? Spain, an underdog after only 13 World Cup appearances, defeated The Netherlands for the championship win. So how did Spain get to a final in the first place? It’s because they beat Germany 1-0 after Germany beat Argentina 4-0, England 4-1 and Australia 4-0. How did this upset happen?

Asamoah Gyan of Ghana scores against the USA.

It is football season. No, I don’t mean that bloodsport between monstrous men that clash bones and rend muscle in what amounts to little more than an out dated version of rugby on steroids – literally. I mean football – a game that is actually played with the foot. It’s also called “Soccer” and it’s the greatest game on Earth – the only one America sucks at. I’ll give you 10 reasons why.
