When the coons come rushing in!

It’s very difficult for black people to stand up and justify their fights for social justice to white people, when so many coons like Jason Whitlock, Barkley, Ray Lewis, James Harrison, Rodney Harrison, and many others who allow themselves to be used by white people as an affront that racism doesn’t exist. We could have learned to forgive and forget in the case of Ray Lewis, but he dropped to 2 knees for master yesterday. In his own subliminal way, he didn’t kneel with the players, he took a knee in prayer.
It’s not just Jason Whitlock, Ray Lewis, James Harrison, Stewart, LeSean McCoy, though, there were many other coons who jumped the gun about Kaepernick before Trump made his statement. It’s more about rich black men becoming whitewashed, because they have been given limited access to the “good ole boy” network who continue to use their expertise after retirement, for their own gain. By limited access, I mean that these men are given jobs after they retire, regardless of their inability to be eloquent on television. When we think of articulation and eloquence, I’m quite sure Ray Lewis and Charles Barkley don’t come to mind. They barely speak like English is their first language. These guys are hired for their opinions, and expertise as former players, not their eloquence in front of the camera. They can be replaced at any moment, if they dare go against the grain. However, we must also understand, in order for a person to be articulate and eloquent, they have to have a certain level of thinking capacity outside their sport, a required level of education and the ability to reason. Now, reasoning is very important, because a lot of black professional athletes never learned to reason until they met their first white coach in little league or high school, thus their reasoning is influenced by white logic. Don’t forget, many of these young men look to their white coaches as father figures. A white man cannot instill black values in a young black man. That shit is impossible. No college coach has spoken out publicly in support of these players, even though these players probably spent most of their adolescent years around these coaches. These men are treated like livestock by college coaches who front like father figures, and they induce only what the coaches dish out to them. No coach can be a father to 53 men at a time. I’m a father of 2 daughters, and it gets difficult for me sometimes.
The problem we’re facing is not an NFL issue, it’s an issue affecting black boys, girls, women and men. These white cops are murdering 12 year-olds for playing with toy guns, so it’s not an adult issue. A 14 year-old just got murdered when cops confused his saxophone for a machine gun. How a saxophone can resemble a machine gun is beyond me. Anyway, we must dig into the roots of cooning a little bit more, because a lot of white men are influencing the thoughts of our black boys on the court and on the field on a daily basis. White men can’t see limited opportunities, because their white privilege remove all the limitations. Unfortunately, a lot of black single mothers are forced to trust these white men with their black sons, and the brainwashing starts at an early age. These are the same coaches whose team members are sometimes accused of rape and other bullshit crimes. Do you really think they have the time to be a father to your sons? Yeah, they might spend more time with the super athletic kids. The ones who can catapult their careers to millions of dollars at a well-known university. White coaches only see opportunities for black boys, as long as they have athletic talent that they can exploit. Most of the time, the black coaches who worked with these guys during their formal years are shut out of their lives by the white coaches at the college level, or whatever next level where the white coaches took over. It is during that crucial period of a young man’s life that the cooning mindset is developed. When your first impulse is to see opportunity, instead of oppression, because your physical talents provided those opportunities, it seems very normal to see other people as obstacle and barrier to their own success. You don’t take an introspective look at your own exploitation to see how people used you for their own gain, while also helping you to attain your success. It’s difficult for a guy like Ray Lewis to relate to a regular black person who has no athletic talent. Ray’s focus has always been football, and many people in his life have made sacrifices, so he could excel in football. The shit that’s going on in the world is foreign to him. He’s attained his goal of making it to the highest level his talent could have driven him to, which is the NFL, and he made a lot of money doing it. In addition, the NFL also shielded him from prison, because of his talent on the field. Now, he’s sheltered. There are many black athletes that are disconnected from their own community and family after becoming rich. Just because someone does community service, it does not mean they are connected to the community. We must first understand that. In addition, nobody wants to go back to poverty, and many successful people are ashamed of their upbringing and background. They tend to latch on to this new fantasy of having rich friends and being around people with the means to do what they want to do, whenever they feel like it.
Cooning is not as simple as many people think. It’s deeply rooted in white influence, and few of us have been exposed to the white coaches, mentors, talent agents, lawyers, accountants, and those people who have way more to gain from our talent than we have to lose.
