Rejection: Coping With Institutional Bias

From most of our readers, if we type out the initials "KSK", we'd probably receive emails wondering if we made a typo and switched out a k for an s.

But, KSK is the acronym for a little known fringe of blogfrica, located at Kissing_Suzy_Kolber.

Recently, the "bloggers" on KSK held a contest to determine what lucky individual would receive a special invite to participate as the last member of their fantasy football league.

NOIS felt that it would be a worthwhile undertaking to claim the spot as our own. We also felt that we would be doing the "blog" a favor by giving it the unparallelled exposure it would get from the affiliation with NOIS. As part of the lineage of the original tribe of blogfrica, we feel a social responsibility to lend assistance and guidance to all inhabitants.

So, we submitted a reasonable, friendly and detailed application for admission into their league. An application highlighting the advantages our inclusion would provide. Submitted under the assumption that all entrants would be evaluated with an open mind and that presumed ideology (read: race) would not be an issue or used in determining acceptance into the all-white undertaking.

To our consternation, our application was rebuffed.

Our first instinct, rage. The pondered response was a concentrated assault of deadly vitriol aimed at assassinating the character of KSK. But the reality of the character of KSK assured the futility of such an energy draining proposition.

Further instinct led to the possibility of mustering our garrison of commenters and "busing" them to the hinterland of blogfrica occupied by KSK with the intention of orchestrating a peaceable, though staunch, virtual picketing of the site.

But, we realized, based on the admonition received in the rejection, that a better course of action was available.

"We couldn't bear the thought of spending a season being lectured to by these guys."

In light of that sentiment, our course of action is clear.



We're gonna start a fantasy league with these guys.

Sir,

You place too much blame on us. Surely, the white she-devil has a greater role in this hideous transgression.

"Surely, the white she-devil has a greater role in this hideous transgression. "

Sir...tits.

You went with tits.

We fully relate to this veiled admission

Sir, the future is NOW.

"their rigid insistence can be a little, gulp, intimidating:"

further indication of bias!!!

threatening and intimidating are always code words!

Dave the Wave said...

i think i am KSK's new biggest fan!

excellent move to keep these imbeciles out of your league.

THANK YOU, KSK!!!

This blog is not a fun thing for me, this is not a blog where I post my favorite recipes or talk about my favorite sports or fishing or … whatever. That is not a luxury I have, because I am a black man in America. The posts on this blog represent black men in America, they are our views. I write for us, so that people can hear the other side of the one sided story they hear every day.

megalomania - meg·a·lo·ma·ni·a (měg'ə-lō-mā'nē-ə, -mān'yə) Noun - A psychopathological condition characterized by delusional fantasies of wealth, power, or omnipotence.

i get what you are saying...NOIS and that other blog are perfect for each other and their own league....good point!

John S. said...

uhhh.... not really, but, hey, you are free to think whatever you like.

gymclassheroes said...

Dave and John...

I don't quite think you're getting what NOISb is all about...and because of that, I say THANK YOU, for you are making my day!

John S. said...

I do get it.

I was critiqing the site that he linked to.

Dave the Wave said...

whats to get?

nois is a douchenozzle.

John S. said...

and... yes... I think the "business manager" thing is funny as hell.

Johnny Cockring said...

NOISb, Sir, to be precise, I don't think the 'black man's kryptonite' in question supplied the standard Joe Francis-inspired photographic offering.

To be precise, KSK went with the anticipation of tits. A decision I wholeheartedly support.

However, their decision to provide a quota for the number of entrants in their pretend-pigskin collective, to the exclusion of NOISb, is a classic example of discriminatory effect. No more quotas!

Dave the Wave said...

"No more quotas!"

screw you.

No quotas, no peace!

Johnny Cockring said...

he has to be pretending, right? He can't really be this stupid

I mean, to be able to use the computers at the library, a crackhead gotta be smart enough to operate a doorknob.

John S. said...

Well, most libraries come with automatic door openers now, so, maybe not.

Johnny Cockring said...

even in Kentucky?

John S. said...

I stand corrected.

Chris said...

NOIS I love you - I hope this man crush does not go against the teachings of Islam.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"NOIS I love you - I hope this man crush does not go against the teachings of Islam."

Sir, we're sure you can come up with a Mike Tyson quote to better sum up your amorous emotions for NOIS.

The eloquence of a Tysonism is more frequently than not the best communicative devise available.

John S. said...

On Razor Ruddock:

"You're sweet. I'm going to make sure you kiss me good with those big lips. I'm gonna make you my girlfriend."

Good?

ATL_eagle said...

NOIS, the KSK rejection shouldn't be a surprise. Drew is WASP who worked in US advertising and Caveman is a product of the US Military. Did you expect products of those industries to respect a strong negro voice like yours? You had a better shot at running point for Coach K.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"You had a better shot at running point for Coach K. "

Sir, the only "shot" applicable to the above situation....would be the one I discharged into my temple.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"Good?"


Sir...you've outdone yourself there.

Burnsy said...

"There are nine million people who see me in the ring and hate my guts. Most of them are white. That's okay. Just spell my name right."

I think that's the more fitting Tysonism.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"I think that's the more fitting Tysonism"

Sir,.....and you spelled his name right...

how your monkey ass was able to figure out how to use a keyboard?

runninonmt said...

NOISb, while I support your decision to play w/ like-minded individuals, based on the commenting on your new friends blog, you may be the only 2 in the league. Perhaps you may find a larger field here- http://theassimilatednegro.blogspot.com/

I want to throw down your kid and stomp on his testicles, and then you will know what it is like to experience waking up everyday as me. And only then will you feel my pain.

Unsilent Majority said...

how your monkey ass was able to figure out how to use a keyboard?

Do you kiss your sister with that mouth?

John S. said...

I am just trying to figure out whether the above statement qualifies as "irony" in that it attempts to paint the NOISb author as an inarticulate "monkey" by using such horrible grammar.

Johnny Cockring said...

"Do you kiss your sister with that mouth?"


Only on the anus.

ZEKE said...

Do you kiss your sister with that mouth?
___________________________________

nope...but lick your sisters asshole with this tongue.

MMMM...toasty!

Johnny Cockring said...

john, Sir, as long as you see the irony, it counts.

even if unintended

John S. said...

@johnny

Bravo!

I laughed at that one.

John S. said...

Now I trying to determine how zeke's exclamation that he licks someone's sisters ass can, somehow, constitute an insult.

I mean... its her ass... and you are licking it...with your tongue.

Johnny Cockring said...

John, Sir, possible explanation:

Most people would be upset when their sister turns up with anal warts.

Martin said...

"I mean, to be able to use the computers at the library, a crackhead gotta be smart enough to operate a doorknob."

Sir, Mike Cooper scoffs at your notion.

John S. said...

@johnny

A very plausable explanation.

Johnny Cockring said...

ah, Cleveland

don't act like you never got your freak on in the library. Just bring a partner, please!

Johnny Cockring said...

Martin, Sir, I finally finished watching the Mike Cooper expose'. first I've seen it.

I'll stop laughing soon...

any minute now...

let's hear it for fans of THE Ohio State University!

Well, that one apparently knows how to operate a knob, so I don't see your point.

H.N.I.C. said...

Sir, doesn't KSK stand for 'Kock Suckin Krew'. I swore it did, fuck, back to the drawing board.

Jackin'4Beats said...

I'm still waiting for that interview with Brother J. Sirs, please make that happen.

And Zeke and Dave can go back to tippin cows and boiling moonshine now.

I'm reminded of my favorite Onion headline:

Damn, it ain't right that the most militant blog gets the most crackeriffic commenters. Sirs, I feel your pain.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

", I feel your pain. "

Sir, if u feel what we feel, it's not pain. It's righteousness

Jay Goober said...

Thanks for the invitation, I think it's a great idea. We'll just have to choose a location for our league. As a sign of my gratitude I'll even give you Peyton Manning, one of the greatest regular season QB's of our time.

I never read this blog before that KSK post. With one short message and the responses to the comments, you won me over.

I am simultaneously laughing and amazed at the extreme flexibility of the Malcom/Nation oratorical style. Couched within politeness, you attack, question, understand, laugh at, lament and celebrate pretty much everything under the sun.

I love you already.

Andrew said...

Sirs,

I humbly request entrance into your league of fatnastic football.

I promise to comport myself with the class and dignity of one who would name their team Oprah's Va Jay Jay.

Thank you for your time.

Andrew

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"Thanks for the invitation, I think it's a great idea."

Sir, we're unfamiliar with your handle here.

Feel free to email us, so that we may clarify this.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"I never read this blog before that KSK post."

Sir, interesting.

And unusual.

We have been getting the converse response from most readers...

But, we welcome you to the land of opportunity....for righteous thought.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"I humbly request entrance into your league of fatnastic football."

Sir, dear friend Andrew, surprisingly enough, we have received emails asking for inclusion in the fantasy league.

Unlike KSK and their inflated egotistically driven effort to affect an air of self importance and relevence...we won't be holding a contest for our dear and valued readers to prostitute their allegiance and beg to be a part of...our league will include everyone.

Everyone that willingly takes a pledge of loyalty to the righteous ideals that we profess.

Additionally, we will take suggestions as well as to rules and such...we don't want to put much effort in this, and want the very simplist version of a fantasy league possible.

Our mental energies are depleted after the lesson we so insightfully supply to blogfrica each day, so, thinking about a fantasy league is not condusive to maintaining our top as the most informative and in deman blog in blogfrica.

Get back at us with suggestions for an easy league.

Johnny Cockring said...

"Get back at us with suggestions for an easy league."

The simplest thing would be to get a cardboard box and a pair of dice.

If you roll a seven, you get a 'touchdown'. Huzzah!

If you roll a two, it's a 'safety'. Booooo

Dave the Wave said...

"The simplest thing would be to get a cardboard box and a pair of dice."

gee, one of you peoples wants to roll de bones...how shocking.

ZEKE said...

"The simplest thing would be to get a cardboard box "

If you take the cardboard box, where is nois and his staff gonna hold their meetings?

Another example of why I love this place.

Scolding KSK for having big egos because of their contest. Then demanding anyone that wants to play in YOUR league has to take a pledge to you.

All without taking a breath.

Well done.

Johnny Cockring said...

ultrasound, Sir, thanks for the narrative; the idiots still won't get it and the rest of us already do.

examples aplenty visible above.
