LeBron on Vogue: Approved!

This is a little late. But, as you are well aware, we have been busy helping to entrench the finality of Half-Brother Barrack's coronation as King Democrat.

Much to do was made by several Negro columnist (and more than a few of their white guilt riddled counterparts) protesting and questioning a recent Vogue magazine cover featuring a wonderfully portrayed LeBron James.



One columnist characterised the photo as being like King Kong holding his kidnapped white girl. Insinuating that LeBron was being portrayed as a violent ape, crazed by the possibility of handling a white woman.

From espn.com's Jemele Hill:

A black athlete being reduced to a savage is, sadly, nothing new. But this cover gave you the double-bonus of having LeBron and Gisele strike poses that others in the blogosphere have noted draw a striking resemblance to the racially charged image of King Kong enveloping his very fair-skinned lady love interest.

LeBron is just the third male ever to appear on Vogue's cover, but it's hard to believe Vogue would have made Brett Favre, Steve Nash or even David Beckham strike his best beast pose. And even if Vogue had, it wouldn't carry the same racial undertones as having a fear-inducing black man paired with a dainty damsel.

Too often, black athletes are presented as angry, overly aggressive and overly sexual.

We take offense at Ms Hill's offense.

The notion that James is being portrayed in an offensive way is ignorant. It is fueled by a desire (conscious or not) to conform to the white man's attempts to confine and unsuccessfully refute the Original Man's superiority in physicality.

The evilishness of the plot Ms Hill has found herself being hooked by is that it depends on the Negro to be the one to demand that James image be that of a melba toast, yes sir- no sir nonthreatening minstrel of basketball.

Ha.

James is a beast on the court. Let the white man fear him.

Let the white women imagine being held on that muscular arm of his.

Let them.

And let the Negro not be deceived by this attempt by the mainstream media to use reverse psychology on them. Let the Negro not be bamboozled into forming self-lynching parties to police the Negro ranks and force conformation with the white man's desire to quell the natural Negro physical (add in sexual) domination.

We understand, that as a fairly plain looking Negress, that Ms Hill would be threatened by the uninhibited affirmation of the Original Man's virility. Certainly, she would think that most white women (when presented with such an image) would be compelled to lay themselves down before the Original Man. Lessening her own chance of landing one.

We get that. And are sympathetic to the factors which would help to drag Ms Hill into this plot.

But we ask that she not go about questioning a photo such as this or trying to add some sort of racially offensive overtone to it.

The picture is accurate and real.

Accept it.

If it scares the white folk, it scares them.

We ask that women of Ms Hill's ilk take a moment of silence on this particular non-issue. That they not make an issue out of something that isn't one.

Let the brothers tap that milky nana in peace.

Yes, we can change.

Gentlemen,

I have found literature trashing our fine religion.

Help a 'brotha out.

NOIS, I find it so funny how time and time again in your blog you have referenced the unquestionable superiority of your elite "original" race. You suggest this in many different contexts, although your main platform is of course the physique of your dominant race. Yours being a sports blog, I suppose its natural to focus on the physical and athletic superiority of your great race.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I have no real objection with your glorification of the black athlete... only that you typically insist on discussing everything in a very racist light.

You make convenient generalizations and assumptions about everything (even in the non-sports world) and truly seem to root exclusively for black athletes and coaches. You're not so much a fan of sports or teams as a fan of only the black people within those sports or teams. Your lack of objectivity and hatred for everything white is astounding.

Bias aside, I think it is very ignorant of you to make claims of racial superiority chiefly on account of the demographics of professional/collegiate sports and the physique of particular black athletes.

I write this as a general response to your blog entries as a whole. And no, I am not afraid of LeBron James... I do believe he is an outer-worldly talent and physical specimen, though, and enjoy watching him play bball.

"Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I have no real objection with your glorification of the black athlete... only that you typically insist on discussing everything in a very racist light."

Sir, if you have no real objection to our profferings; why did you subject us to your misinterpreted view of our posts?

That just isn't right.

Gentlemen, if you refuse to respond to the allegations tarnishing our faith, I may have no choice but to begin questioning our merits...

"Gentlemen, if you refuse to respond to the allegations tarnishing our faith, I may have no choice but to begin questioning our merits..."

Sir, we find the rants of the lunatic 'writer' of the 'allegations' to be beyond humorous.

That was some of the best satire we have seen on the web.

i've never seen NOIS make claims of racial superiourity based on all that.

Just athletic superiority.

Dave,

You're right. Then we can all look and say "Dave's Mom dresses so well."

Gentlemen,

The "rants" of the "lunatic" writer appear to be quite strongly supported by quotes and examples from the Holy Book. How dare you question the validity of The Glorious Text and The Prophet Himself!?

RighteousReasoner said...

And in his final sermon, Prophet Mohammed made clear that racism has no place in Islam:

"O people! Verily your Lord is one and your father is one. All of you belong to one ancestry of Adam and Adam was created out of clay. There is no superiority for an Arab over a non-Arab and for a non-Arab over an Arab; nor for white over the black nor for the black over the white except in piety. Verily the noblest among you is he who is the most pious."


Hmmmmmmmmmmm...could our Righteous Nation be operating under false pretenses?

Sebastian said...

LOL!

I was wondering if you could add 2+2....

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"Hmmmmmmmmmmm...could our Righteous Nation be operating under false pretenses?"

Sir, you solidify our argument.

"most pious"....that means righteous. That provideds the difference and the superiority.

How plainer can this particular translation be that the Negro is superior.

You've pointed it out perfectly.

Thank you.

RighteousReasoner said...

Wonderful response, gentlemen. I would have expected nothing less

Thank you for solidifying my faith, I was beginning to doubt...
