Preach On, Bruther


"But [Ricky] Williams is seemingly just a harmless and hopeless pothead on the verge of being drug-tested out of the league because NFL powers-that-be have declared marijuana to be evil. I can just hear the NFL muckety-mucks now as they sit at the big mahogany bar at the owners meeting ordering single-malt scotches and vodka martinis and lamenting to each other, "Why in the world does Ricky Williams need marijuana to get through the day?" - Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel

I think you're confusing the word "evil" with the word "illegal". Both alcohol and mary jane can be evil, only one is illegal at this time.

OK, I came in here to applaud the writer of that piece, but comments 2-4 just absolutely took my breath away. Holy racist a-holes, Batman ...

Wow, you guys. Truly stunning. Not to mention cowardly -- all anonymous comments, naturally. Ugh. For shame.

ANON 10:28 here. Sorry gleem. Let me check that pic out again. This time I'll put my readers on. Now I can see.

Uhhhhhh....are you sure that's not a monkey?

We can probably all agree that Ricky has a problem, but that's no reason to break out the white pointy hats & flaming crosses.

Here we have a guy that was at the top of the world, one of the greatest college football players of all time and winner of the Heisman. But, then he fails due to an inability to stop using weed.

Where are all of the regular "good Christians" who populate this Blog? As usual they are silent when it comes to actually praying for and supporting someone that needs help. Whether that's because he's black or for some other reason, we don't know.

Why don't we treat this as an opportunity? Ricky would make a wonderful success story if he's able to turn his life around.

Please, guys, your giving this blog a huge black eye with your racist comments. I was wondering why Barry was allowing these posts & I answered my own question with thoughts of free speech issues that I am sure are dear to Barry's heart.
It is still hard to accept that there are still people who think like this. What an embarassment! How disgusting! I feel dirty reading it.

You're right. I post them because I'm constantly shocked at the level of racism that exists. People need to know.

I think some people mistake racism with humor. It is ok for every black comedian to make fun of whitey, but as soon as whitey makes an ethnic joke it is called racism. This is simple reverse-racism. The reason some on this blog are so outraged is because you have been programmed by society to be that way. I have many ethnic friends and we give each other racial barbs all the time, but it is in good fun and we all know that. Most white people kill me when they try to distance themselves from what they believe is racist for fear of being called a racist themselves. I am guessing most of the previous posters on here probably have no ethnic friends and are just pandering to political correctness! Would somebody please watch an episode of Mind of Mencia!

Anon 3:42 -- How in the world did you turn a post about a guy who smokes too much dope into an anti-Christian screed? And then you tinge it with a veiled accusation of racism??!

Many people -- Christians included -- don't announce every prayer or good work that they do... and especially not in a venue like this where such a post would immediately be answered with criticism and ridicule.

Gleemonex said...

"Reverse racism," oh my. Nice try, 4:34, but there's no white equivalent to "spear chunker" or "monkey." I think it's much more often the case that most racists ("I have many ethnic friends") confuse what they call "humor" with ... well, just being racist.

Anon @ 3:42, I love the "white pointy hats & flaming crosses" bit. No sh*t. Geez....

And it's odd too...usually there's a lot of talk about how hot Ricky Williams is. Shame he's such a stoner though.

Hey 4:34 - I'm the 4:11 post. I can assure you that I have "ethnic" friends and one family member, so quit supposing I am pandering to political correctness. There is no way the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 7th comments on this would be said to Ricky Williams face without expecting him to be highly insulted.
It's true that comments are tossed back and forth among friends that might be considered insulting if they were said to strangers. But for that to work, the friends have to be confident that everyone in the group respects & cares for each other & they know that the intention behind the words is not a sense of superiority, disrespect, or hate. You can't make that assumption when words like these guys are using are said about someone they do not know personally. I think it is safe to assume that they don't know Ricky Williams personally.

WOW, how fascinating Mr. Green. Here we have a grown man who, in a professional capacity surfs Myspace and other internet sites for pics to post of young girls (half his age) with T and A’s and other body parts hanging out and who allows others to make questionable comments about these pics of someone’s daughter, granddaughter, niece, wife, etc. has the audacity to say he is constantly shocked at the level of racism that exists but, is not SHOCKED at his own and others existence for having the characteristics of perverts.

P.S. I post this because I am constantly shocked at the level of pervert’s that exist. People need to know. I will be happy to pull a “mzchief” and state the facts if needed.
