Some, diatribically venomous ad hominem attacks voicing no real point of view; other than the writer is angry that the world is changing rapidly and he/she is being left behind.
We generally aren't the type to pat ourselves on the back and devote time to pointing out every instance in which our activism leads to change.
But, we feel this time is important enough to lend some attention.
Our regular readers will recall last weeks sermonical presentation on the racist tendencies exhibited by a Sports Illustrated football writer. In his weekly column, the writer gives out a "Good Guy of the Week" award. All winners this season had been white.
We believed that it was time to take a stance against the writer, and we put together a well received expose on the writer's pattern.
Brothers and Sisters, the response of Mr. Peter King overwhelmingly substantiates our findings.
This morning, in his 'column', Mr. King anointed a new 'Good Guy of the Week'.
Lo and behold, after our public outcry against his award practices which thus far had repetitively excluded Negroes from being crowned as 'good guys'; Mr. King coronated Brian Dawkins as his 'Good Guy of the Week'.
Certainly, no one can argue that Dawkins deserves the award. He did something to help someone or donated some time to a charity or helped kids or some such endeavor. What he did is not of consequence.
It is the recognition of a Negro player as a 'good guy' that matters.
We applaud Mr. King for tapping out under the pressure administered by our previous literary choke hold. And caving to the concentrated demands of our movement.
Now that the precedent has been set, we anticipate a run of Negro players winning this coveted award.
In related news:
Last week we also ran a piece illustrating that Ronnie Brown was one of the most efficient QB's in football and that he was best suited to be the starting QB for the Dolphins.
Seems Mr. King has jumped on that bandwagon as well.
The best thing for Miami is how adept Brown is at taking snaps and using play-fakes and even throwing the ball.
King even went so far as to name Miami Quarterback Coach, David Lee, his Coach of the Week for the work he has done implementing this package centered around Ronnie Brown assuming the role of Negro QB.
While we must admit there is certainly going to be a lingering issue in King's blatant attempt to credit the white coach with the success of the new Quarterback; we must agree with the sentiment of King's statement.
Clearly, in naming the Quarterback Coach the coach of the week for his work with Brown, King is anointing Brown the Quarterback of the Dolphins.
We made that point over a week ago, but it is fulfilling to see the mainstream media agree that Ronnie Brown is one of the best Negro-QB's in the NFL.
Yes, we can change!
