If you followed the sports reports you would have heard the glowing testimony of those who appeared thrilled with the accomplishment of this team. The Jackie Robinson West, little league baseball team, that came second in the world little league championship, drew significant attention as it advanced to the tournament’s title game, where it fell to Seoul, South Korea. In a sport that increasingly struggles to attract Afrikan children in amurdikkka, the team representing Chicago’s South Side emerged as a force, beating Las Vegas 7-5 in the U.S. title game.The Chicago players were lauded for not just their prowess on the field but also for their sportsmanship, and they later were honored by President Barack Obama at the White House. However, if you listen really, really carefully, you would have heard the questions. Because there were a lot of noise, albeit over shadowed by the accolades.
The last few days, if you listen carefully, you would hear the hew and cry of the sore losers and the haters, who would uphold white supremacy at all cost. I call them sore losers because, yurugu will always complain about unfair advantages when they get their ass kicked, in any area they believed they should dominate in. It kind of gives lie to the superiority of his kind.
The Jackie Robinson West Little League team was ruled to have used players from outside its local area by recruiting players from neighboring districts.
According to the findings by the league, the coach and team officials were culpable in bringing in players from outside of district boundary to compete in this league. Sister Souljah once rapped, two wrongs don’t make it right but it just makes it even. Yurugu as a people, an entity are a duplicitous and disingenuous lot. Whose propensity for deception and under handed acts is rivaled by no other on the planet.
Gentrification refers to trends in neighborhood development that tend to attract more affluent residents, and in many instances concentrated, upscale commercial investment. Put it plainly, wealthy yurugus move into a neighborhood and through a combination of real estate malfeasance, police harassment, political shenanigans and income disparity which allowed them to benefit from income disparity and rental discrimination, Afrikans in amurdikkka are shunted away from that neighborhood to pockets of ghettos. The children of these wealthy yurugu, can then exist in an area that eventually was created for their pleasure and comfort. All this happened in Chicago in the late 1950s and continues to this day. A lot of the so-called black on black murders in Chicago are the results of living in an oppressive environment, that is run down, poor, heavily policed with an infusion of drugs, that Afrikan people are not suppliers or distributors of. The neighborhood i grow up in in Toronto, can’t even compare to a city or area like Chicago south side, but I am fully much aware of police dropping off drugs, collecting their money,shaking down dealers, pimping women and creating beef by snitching or claiming such and such is snitching on someone else.
Now I am specifically speaking of how gentrification has created an environment where yurugu children can benefit from the best coaches, the best sports program, that money can by. AS the article stated, the league was struggling to bring Afrikan children in. This is partly due to football and basketball being more exciting and popular among us, but it is also because they don’t want us around them….period. So of course the level of preparation will not be the same. Before the national championship, Las Vegas had beaten Jackie Robinson West, something like 10-2. Therefore the team was good enough to have gone to Korea to lose to the Koreans. But what changed? Did they bring in older players? Did they bringing semi-pro players? No, the team just gelled and got better. One would think a team as good for so long like Las Vegas would be invincible, but once that bubble was burst, the sore losers looked for loop holes, that they caused to manifest, to deny these young children some shine.
As one poster stated…“Little League Baseball is the same as the NCAA. Every team cheats. It’s a don’t get caught policy. Someone was really upset that an inner city team won and took action. So now these games never occurred? Strip them of victory? Hardly matters now, these young men know what they accomplished. No board of old men can take that away from them.”
What the poster should have said was, no board of jealous WHITE men can take that away. But yurugu has cheated us in sports since for ever. There was a time when HBCU’s more than held their own or in some cases, dominated when they played a superiority funded college sports team, during a period of segregation. Remember the movie Glory Road? In 1966, UTEP (university of Texas El Paso , formerly known as Texas western Miners, were the first black starting five, to the NCAA basketball team to win the NCAA tournament, when they upset Kentucky 72-65 and notorious anti-Afrikan hater Adolph Rupp. Supposedly one of the greatest coaches in college his story. This after years of being denied the pleasure of rubbing up against the bodies of these good white boys.
When the NFL started, in the 1920s, a handful of Africans in Amurdikkka played in the new league. But from 1934 to 1946, there were no black players in the NFL. There wasn’t an official rule against them, but there was an unwritten understanding among the teams. The teams would not allow Africans in Amurdikkka into the league. Not as many kids — or adults — know about Kenny Washington. But Kenny Washington was the Jackie Robinson of the National Football League (NFL). Then there was Jackie Robinson himself. Ernest “Ernie” Davis (December 14, 1939 – May 18, 1963) was the first African athlete to win the Heisman Trophy. Wearing number 44, Davis played college football for Syracuse University before being drafted by the Washington football team then immediately traded to the Cleveland Browns in December 1961
Harry “Bucky” Lew was the first recorded African to sign a professional basketball contract. Lew signed with Lowell, MA’s Pawtucket Athletic Club in the New England Basketball League in 1902. On November 2, 1902, Lew’s team faced a team from Marlborough, MA. After a few injuries to his team, the manager chose to play four on five, instead of inserting Lew into the game. In 1950, six players ended up on a NBA roster. They were:
|April 25, 1950:||Chuck Cooper drafted by Boston Celtics in second round.
Earl Lloyd drafted by Washington Capitols in ninth round.
Harold Hunter drafted by Washington Capitols in tenth round.
|April 26, 1950||Harold Hunter signs training camp contract.|
|May 1950||Nat Clifton signs with New York Knicks.|
|October 31, 1950||Earl Lloyd debuts with Washington Capitols.|
|November 1, 1950||Chuck Cooper debuts with Boston Celtics.|
|November 4, 1950||Nat Clifton debuts with New York Knicks.|
|December 3, 1950||Hank DeZonie signs with Tri-Cities Hawks.|
As the tide of competition changed,so did they idea of many yurugu team owners, who were primarily small hats and Khazar, hit upon the idea of pimping black bodies for profit. Sort of like back in the good old days of enslavement. So realizing that the better, more exciting, more magnificent athletes were often the Afrikan athletes, they started mining these black bodies, in our neighborhood, and Historical Black Colleges and universities. The NCAA set up a scam where they would defund the black colleges, super fund the white colleges and funnel Afrikan athletes to their campuses, those creating a new form of gentrification. Considering that knee-grows have no loyalty to each other and certainly do not practice race-ism, it was only a matter f time before black college sports started dying off. You don’t think we have no loyalty? When the Negro baseball league was thriving, parallel to the league was the rise of hotels, restaurants, taxi and bus services, concession workers and loads of money circulating from town to town, when the negro league games come to a “black” neighborhood. Once integration happened, all those opportunities died, because to this day we think the white mans toilet flushes better, his water is cooler and his game is better.
This is the same mentality that made the coach, pursue the route he did, in a league and a game where little black boys stood out like…well a bunch of black children in a sea of white. Of course many won’t see how yurugu, created the disparity and lived comfortably off of it for decades. That’s alright, the knowledge is not for everybody. More than anything, what I see wrong in this whole drama, is not that yurugu will seek to get an advantage over us…that’s his nature. What I see wrong is how we keep thinking that we have to be around them to enhance our worth.
It sucks to be the coach and these children right now. But it sucks even more if we don’t learn the lessons I laid out above, instead of talking some shit that cheating is blah, blah , blah. Fuck these mother fuckers been cheating us since they crawled out of the caves of Europe….
