The Final Answer, man: The Answerman

A new feature.

We will address specific requests for information from our intelligent readers.

Today's question (culled from our comments, but certainly worthy of the full attention of our readership, and therefore, the "nation") :

Brother NOISb, I, nay, WE, await your commentary on why Brother Johnson was subject to an extensive jail term for probation violation and Ms. Hilton was let out early for her similar violation today. FREE PACMAN!

Brothers and Sisters, clearly we live in a "nation" that appraises the worth, privileges and rights of individuals through specific factors. The notion that we are "created equal" and therefore afforded similar, or at least congruent, rights and privileges is a fallacious notion. It is a predatory notion. It is used to occupy our minds and quench our souls, while the realities of the true implementation and enactments of our judicial and civil system figuratively rape and pillage a known segment of the "American" demographic on a regular and specific basis.

Brother Johnson committed a violation of his probationary agreement. He received punishment. Certainly, if he was accurately found in summary discord with an agreement that belayed his due punishment, we can find no fault in holding him accountable. We can't even find fault in the judge mandating that Johnson relinquish his freedom for the full term of his sentence.

Ms. Hilton was found to be in violation of her agreed upon probationary agreement. She surreptitiously tried to blame others for her supposed non-receival of specific information about the conditions. Evidence was found in the glove box of a vehicle she was driving in violation of the terms of execution of her probation that clearly demonstrated she had knowledge of the terms. Ms. Hilton's term was cut in half from the get go. Then Ms. Hilton's term was cut in tenth of that half.

Certainly there is some incongruity in all this.

The argument will be made by jesters, fools and conspicuously racially oppressive folks that they see no inherent intellectual disparity between a large, "scary" Negro being locked up for full term and a blond, white sex pot being "scared straight" by a night of special treatment in county lock up. The basis of their argument will be that the evil and scary Negro's violation involved weapons. While the PYT piece of white deliciousness only committed infractions involving impaired MV operation and non-compliance with her license suspension.

The focus will be to connect the weapons possession violations with violence. And to mitigate Ms. Hilton's violations more as being some sort of administrative infraction.

The argument will anectdotally portray guns as being more dangerous than an impaired individual driving at breakneck speeds. The argument will falsely surmise that statistics show more people are at danger because of guns than drunk drivers.

The argument of the jester, fool and conspicuously racially oppressive, that is.

MADD, an organization which tracks drunk driving statistics tells us that over 500,000 people are injured or killed by impaired driving each year.

Ceasefire, an organization that tracks gun use statistics tells us that just under 100,000 people are injured or killed by guns each year.

Clearly, the incidence of an impaired driver hurting or killing someone is greater than a gun user.

We can accurately say, then, that an impaired individual choosing to operate a vehicle is akin to an individual choosing to use a gun.

The problem in juxtaposing Brother Johnson's situation with Ms. Hilton's?

Ms. Hilton chose to get behind the wheel and on the open road. Thereby endangering the public at large. Thereby threatening to add to the 500,000.

Brother Johnson? He was charged with having weapons at his home. Not possessing them in public and not USING them.

The cogent mind can clearly see what happened here.

It's much more important for Ms. Hilton to be out getting paid to be at sponsors' parties at clubs than it is for Brother Johnson to be in uniform striving to become the NFL's Man of the Year.

Maybe if Brother Johnson had been photographed carry a copy of the Qu'ran around with him the days before he was locked up, it would have led to a lessened stay.

The bottom line is this:

Brother Johnson's stay has led to a lifestyle change.

And Ms. Hilton needs the love of a good brother.

Sir, my pharmacist recommends that you stay away from Ms. Hilton

I don't get it. What are you guys talkin' about?

Hey, somebody tell me!

m. leinhart said...

Then, theoretically, what would have been the punishment if all other circumstances being identical, Brother Johnson's first name was Rochester and he worked under the employment of Miss Hilton?

On one hand, he would fulfill the aristocracy's ideal of the model minority. On the other, that ideal is almost always disposable.

"theoretically"

Sir, we deal in realities.

What if's are a wonderful game.

But they have little to do with the question at hand.

Diversion is not subversion.

This is a case of the super-rich or super famous being able to find a way to wiggle out of trouble. It is more a problem of social class then racial class. Paris has a billionaire family to save her ass. Michael Vick should maybe ask Rick and Kathy Hilton to adopt him.

Sir, sure it is.

Race and perception based on media representations of it have nothing to do with this.

Nothing.

Absolutely nothing.

You realize, apologists for racists are just as racist as racists are? Don't you?

"This is a case of the super-rich or super famous being able to find a way to wiggle out of trouble."

Sir, while Ms. Hilton stands to potentially inherit a lot of money when her trust fund matures...is she really that much richer or famous than Brother Johnson, a NFL player on a Super Bowl team? Really?

NOISb, I am humbled, sir, that you took the time to address my quest for knowledge and feel blessed with the fountain of knowledge that you have provided for all of us to drink from. I only hope enough do drink from it. As they say, you can lead a ignorant bigot to the river, but you can't make him drink.

Free Pacman!

Praise be to Allah!

"As they say, you can lead a ignorant bigot to the river, but you can't make him drink."

Sir, we realize this completely.

And we don't aim to quench the thirst of ignorance.

We aim to drown it in the river of righteous enlightenment.

"What if's are a wonderful game."

don't mean to step on your toes...but you did ask if maybe Tank would have got a lighter sentence if he carried a religious book around.

that is kind of a what if, no?

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"that is kind of a what if, no? "

Sir, it is kind of a what if.

But not that kind.

The commentor posed a what if that required us to consider and answer. To contemplate a hypothetical.

Our conjecture relating to Tank carrying the Qu'ran was more rhetorical in nature.

Well, actually, let's be frank. It was a clever dig at the fact that Paris thought carrying the bible with her would invoke a positive effect, public image wise. We brilliantly substituted the Qu'ran for the bible. In homage to the title of our blog. The comment, in addition to what we have stated, was not meant to contemplated as a hypothetical question.

So, while one could admittedly classify our "maybe" question about Tank as a "what if". It would be a "what if" under a different subsection than the question posed by the other commentor.

Essentially, his was a "what if".

Ours was a "what if".

Hey man, what if there was a secret compartment in the bible so that she could try and smuggle her...uh...ahh...stash...i mean...stash her jewelry in.

that'd be ok, right?

Sir, well, apparently people look to the bible for the answers to many of life's difficulties.

If they opened it and found a "stash" to help get through troubled times...I'd guess that would be yet another miracle that could be attributed to the volume.

Maybe I should explore the philosophy and practices of this 'Western Religion' in my search for self-fulfillment and holistic wellness

Are you serious? Just do a little test for yourself and google both peoples names. See the results. It is not even close. Paris is constantly followed by the media whereas Johnson is a role player on an NFL team. You would be hard pressed to find a non-NFL fan who even knows who Johnson is. It is about HER FAMILIES money. When you are a billionaire you can pay to make things go away. I mean didnt that singer Brandy kill someone while driving and she isnt in a cell. It is about fame and the privelege that comes with having alot of money.

fixed.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"I mean didnt that singer Brandy kill someone while driving and she isnt in a cell."

Sir. Well, once again, you choose to immediately find a Negro guilty and call for incarceration.

Brandy has not had her due process. She has not been tried yet.

Now, why on earth should she be in jail, when she has not yet been convicted of anything?

Oh, yea. She's a Negro.

Yet another in the myriad of examples of YOU hoping to deny Negroes of due process.

Why not just round up all Negroes and put them in specific and limited areas of land.

Oh, wait, you've already done that with Native Americans.

Brandy is a billionaire now?

kind of like when you use your negative bias to post only against white athletes.

Sir, if you want to see points of view dedicated to lauding or ignoring the poor behavior of white athletes, go to espn.com or si.com

Our mission is not to regurgitate the bile spewn by the mainstream media. Our mission is not to reinforce the negative Negro stererotypes and the all perfect Caucazoid stereotypes that you hold so dear. Our mission is not to goosestep along with the mainstream media, crushing any positive view of minorities that might proliferate.

Our mission is to propogate righteousness and TRUTH.

Our mission is to shed darkness in a world of light.

Our mission is not subject to the ranting ill informed, illogical and racist opinions of the open eyed blind.

We are right.

Sir, we thought it meant "Black".
