Won't Win this Race


According to Bleacherreport.com Terell Owens says there is a racial double standard of criticizing Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's sidleine rant from Sunday when Tom Brady does the same shit. As a black man I can not disagree anymore with that notion. On Sunday the 4th year wideout appeared to have thrown a tantrum when the Cowboys gave up a touchdown  in the last 12 seconds of the game. Racism is very much alive and serious but this can not be taken serious on any level. Bryant got the attention he wanted.

Coming into this game Dez Bryant was already messing up. Aside from the reputation he had off the field he was trying to compare himself to Calvin Johnson. As I'm typing this I'm laughing about that sentence. There is no real comparison. Calvin Johnson's nickname is Megatron. That says something when you are nicknamed after a Transformer. But Bryant thought he was Optimus Prime I guess. He had a decent game which was 3 catches for 72 yards and 2 touchdowns. How many did Johnson have? Oh just a measly 14 catches for 329 yards and a touchdown. Bryant looked more like Optimus Prius and the sideline activities did not help. 

You can not compare Dez Bryant and Tom Brady whether position or player. As players, Tom Brady is a veteran who has not only been to multiple Super Bowls but won multiple Super Bowls. Has a few Pro Bowls under his belt and an MVP. Has the single-season record for TD passes. He has placed this franchise into a position of dominance in the past decade. Yeah he should yell at receivers if they are screwing up. He is also the Quarterback. Therefore he is THE undeniable leader of this team. Quarterbacks have to take charge of football teams because that is where the credit goes for wins and losses. Bryant has not put up anything close to those numbers. He does not even have a pro bowl. As much as I hear people brag on him year in and year out he should have at least two of those. 

So again how is this about race? What's racist is these black coaches getting fired and not being able to find jobs after they have proven records. What's racist is people still using blackface for their Halloween costumes. That is racist and only the tip of it.  Dez Bryant throwing a fit because Calvin Johnson dominated Dallas' defense is pathetic. And yes I did see the video with the audio. Even with the audio, everybody's body language does not look like they are trying to hear anything Bryant has to say especially when it looks like he's getting into it with Jason Witten. Plenty of black players have been seen yelling amongst their teams over the years but not portrayed as negatively as Bryant. I could say "kudos" to the Cowboys for sticking up for their player but I felt it was more about deflecting from their sideshow reputation gained in the past few years rather than justifying Bryant's actions. 

With all due respect T.O., because I think the media had a favoritism for Tom Brady anyway, Bryant's sideline act is nothing more than attention-seeking just like your comment could be classified as. He has no legitimate beef with anybody other than himself getting into that situation. Speaking as a  black man, there are way more problems with our community other than a football player throwing a fit because his quarterback is not throwing him the ball. Even though racism is a problem, it's not the only problem for African-Americans.

Are you Beautiful?

So I'm up for no damn reason but I caught an epsiode of Dr. Phil and he had an intersting show: 62 yr old lady with a 28yr old boyfriend; a lady lost 140 lbs and her husband didn't like the attn she got; and a lady frm some show "The Swan" who didn't like the new attn she got. Pretty much all the guests were beautiful but could not find happiness.

Its pretty ironic. These women are gorgeous and putting smiles on a lot of guys' faces but at what cost. Either they're mad or their family is mad but somehow a silver lining is found in all this. They are getting the attention they did not expect.  Take the weight loss lady for example. When she was fat her husband was more slender and women would hit on him in front of her face. ( one chick that had a crush on the husband referred to her as "the fat wife"). Now she is getting hit on and he is heavier (partially due to eating the food her skinny self can't finish hahaha) but he can not handle that shit. He once punched a guy who was trying to flirt with her. As for her, Dr. Phil put it best when saying she is doing an "endzone dance": celebrating and rubbing in a newfound victory (she said the chick who called her fat wife could kiss her ass).

Who could blame her tho? Could you imagine not only being overlooked but when you are acknowledged it is negative. The thing is a lot of us feel that way but won't admit it. We feel we are cool ass people to be with and that should be enough but sometimes we feed into the images of tv and music and feel we're not attractive. Don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with being with someone you have a physical attraction to (face-wise) but make sure they have a personality or share some connection with you. Porn stars are beautiful and fuck different types of ppl all day yet some of them are married. Its that connection they're significant other has to understand what their job is and be okay with it.

But regardless of who you are with you or what you look like you have to be on point with self. A couple years ago some friends of mine came up with our own excercise commitment called Project: Get Cut where we were all gonna get fit for that summer. We joke around saying I'm gon look like so and so twin or I'm gon have all the hoes such and such be singing about lol. It was goofy but sometimes its the stuff I always thought about when working out. Pushing myself because one day I'm gon walk in the bank with my shirt off pulling bank tellers like "Bitch you see these triceps come roll to Church's chicken with me"? Unfortunately it doesn't work like that. We need our personality to manage our own sanity and understanding. That understanding is gonna help us find that one person that sees us as a Benz when we feel like a Pinto.

So all my friends are doing this healthy eating thing and working out just like the rest of the country. Somewhere somebody is changing their appearance somehow but that won't change who we are in anyway on the inside. These 3 women are beautiful on the outside but it's important they feel beautiful on the inside. Beauty is not measured in hair length, lost pounds or price of clothes. It is measured by integrity, values and the size of your heart. Beauty is found in the eye of the beholder and we have to realize we are our own beholder. Holla black.
