I agree....the "history" of racism is there..ignored or not....but, too, is the "reality" of black babies born out of wedlock who grow up without fathers is nowadays almost 75%, up from just over 20% in the early 60's...perhaps in some way it can all be traced back to racism and perhaps a resulting type of self hatred......but still the "reality" exists of a large proportion of fatherless children doing poorly in school , getting in trouble and many of those ending up in jail...please read the article Peg Tyre wrote for Newsweek, "The Trouble with Boys"..not an indictment against boys....but an astoundingly sad collection of statistics on what happens to many boys when their biological fathers are not at home....she says father figures, uncles and such can be good but it is just not the same....ignoring, blaming, victimhood will not (re)claim sanity in this saddest of situations....(more than a situation..I just don't have a word for it)
1 year ago on Phil Mushnick wrote the most offensive sports column in the history of Earth
@leisamadaris @1michturner @jordansmom214 maybe I am a "B".....I have not only read what I wrote, I have lived it..I do know something...not much but something...you then disagree with the #1 job is to take care of those you bring into the world? Wow, such anger......no, I do not know the particulars.....I think I know he fathered the child...and you know what? That column maybe is in fact full of falsehoods....but I look around.....having taught school for 32 years and have seen up close what the results are for the sad children who have been neglected/not taken care of.....if I told you the mirrors I have looked in you might again minimize/ and slander that too...making it personal with me and with such hostility, well.....this is only the second time I have ever posted something in response to ANYTHING on the internet.....I knew better...here's a quote for the road...."A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still".....I know......lame...by a "B" 'a'hole, no nothing, wannabe smart like you, not introspective person, funky 'a' column writin' person who needs to STFU.....
@jordansmom214 wow,,,,,scumbag(s)....that's a broad stroke.....I hardly know the Post from the Times no, I didn't hang out with AP, or HIS child's mother...nor do I think that you have...nor do I believe everything that is reported in media....and if AP did just find out....why in 2 months has he seemingly not connected..moreover, why might he not know that he fathered a child...how old was the child, 2, that's a long time to not know...she did have help in bringing the child into the world....and as far as judging young....black .....men....in sports.....all I said was that the #1 one job is to take care of those you bring into the world....if that is judging.....well then.....columnists write, that's what they do......and I spoke to how the truth can make someone mad....maybe, just maybe, there is some truth to what the columnist said....and to admit to that truth might call for a rearranging of one's life map.....the morals..the respect, the decency you spoke to....
The #1 job in the world is to take care of the the people you bring in the world...if done maybe 95% of the world's problems would not be here....YES, THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE, BUT FIRST IT WILL PISS YOU OFF.....another way I heard it, "wanna make somebody mad, tell 'em the truth."
