1. first off please don't act like racism didn't and don't exist
2. Blacks WHERE NOT EVEN ALLOWED IN THE NFL AT ONE POINT
3. MOST nfl owners believed that black guys did not have the mental capacity to play qb or be a coach
4. NEWS FLASH!!!! Most of the owners who believed that have owned these team for years and STILL own them!
Granted ALOT of the owners have been more progressive over the years
5.YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE THE BEST OR MOST QUALIFIED FOR A PROMOTION AND NOT GET IT DO TO YOUR RACE
6. I just listened to Warren Buffett , maybe some of you saw it. The reporter asked him if he was lucky. He said Lucky in a sense of where he was born. Also he was a white man. Had he been a Blackman or woman he wouldn't be where he is today BECAUSE OF HE OPPORTUNITIES THAT WHERE AFFORDED TO HIM! He said his sisters where smarter than him but couldn't get the same opportunities
7.as far as being duped by the Democratic Party. Let me enlighting you a little bit. Most black people are FULLY aware that Democratic Party don't do the things for minorities because of a sincere desire! It's to get votes! We all get that.
But here is what most republicans DON'T AND WON'T UNDERSTAND! There are ALOT of rich Black people that vote democrat EVEN THOUGH it would financially beneficial for hem to vote right. But what most black people understand is that there are ALOT of people in the inner cities that don't see any options! Who great grandparents where slaves,parents came up in the civil rights error, and that pattern of poverty gets passed and got passed on to even this generation. Some kids never seen a black doctor,lawyer etc! As sad as the Sany hook tragity is. Kids and people get killed in the hood either on purpose or stray bullets ALL THE TIME!!you can ask any kid from kindergarten on. Have you ever seen anyone shot or killed most would say yes! So guess what these kids grow up desensitized. Yet still have to o to school and perform. SO YES THEY NEED MORE ASSISTANCE FROM THE GOVERNMENT FOR SPECIAL PROGRAMS!
And please don't tell me oh that's the past get over it. Because IF that's the case what about all the wealth that was made on the backs of slaves? That wealth has been passed down from generation to generation even down TO THIS DAY! Jus like SOME whites STILL benefit from that wealth. SOME blacks are still suffering from mental enslavement
THAT'S WHY MOST BLACKS EVEN RICH ONES VOTE DEMOCRAT!
Also on that note the REASON YOU think blacks are duped by democrats is the VERY reason we need he Rooney rule! Republicans REALLY think black people don't understand political issues! We just go with the flow because we want things and vote dem. smfh! It's so funny that republicans ALWAYS say we have to broaden our tent and do a BETTER job of communicating our principles to minorities! NEWSFLASH!!!!! WE UNDERSTAND THE ISSUES AND LIKE MOST AMERICANS WHO VOTED FIR OBAMA WE JUST DON'T AGREE WITH THEM! That's like Greg knapp saying it takes time for the players to understand the zbs. No they understand it they just don't like it and it doesn't work! Trickle down philosophy is outdated! By virtue of the fact you mentioned Clarence Thomas and Herman Cain as good examples for black people(as did Rush Limbaugh) shows CLEARLY that you have no insight to the depth and otherside of this issue as well as the Rooney rule!
Rooney rule is a waste of time. THere are hardly any racist if any racist owners left in the NFL. Best person for the Job.
I think Mike Tomlin is a ****ty coach, not cause he is black, cause he is crap, I didnt think Cowher was a good coach either. if it wasnt for Dick Lebeau both him and Cowher would win 6 games a year . Go look at Cowher when he didn't have Lebeau. Go look at Parcells when he didn;t have Bellicheck. There is a lot that goes into Coaching, Tony Dungy couldnt put together a offense if his life depended on it. However, he had Peyton Manning.
"Darth Vader is a punk compared to Al Davis," Hunter S Thompson
It sounds like you guys are all sincere. And I agree I hate the Rooney rule. But the reality EVERYONE don't think as progressively as you guys!
I feel bad for those minority individuals whos time is wasted by teams that have zero intentions of hiring them simply to satisfy the Rooney Rule. I think that being used as a token is very offensive.
"The Media hated Davis because he kept his mouth shut when it counted and didn't bend over to their tactics. Most NFL owners hated Davis because he was a 'them', having worked his way up, and also because he had no problem hiring minorities when no one else would. You can only have so many people saying bad things about you before the sheep believe it...And now, the sheep don't even know why they hate the Raiders, it's just always been that way..." - Sir Pig
When Barack gets elected THEN you REACT by appointing Michael Steele and he CONSISTANTLY attacks and critisize Obama, after ALOT of white republicans where being called out as racist for doing so. That's gonna raise some eyebrows!
When you lose Hispanic vote by 71% THEN YOU REACT by trying to elevate Marco Rubio? Again you are gonna raise eyebrows
Who is really being duped?
Are they qualified?ABSOLUTELY! The issue is timing and the GOP has come out over and over again mentioning how Rubio should appeal to more Latinos
Also YOU YOURSELF SAID "look at Clarence Thomas and Herman Cain!" The sad part is YOU DON'T EVEN REALIZE HOW INSULTING AND OFFENSIVE THAT IS TO MOST BLACK PEOPLE!
See there IS a deeper element to this but I won't go into it but Herman Cain? Geeze. If republicans keep this thinking they will go he way of the wig party
