Whitlock's article on Sean Taylor - November 29, 2007, 08:53 PM

He certainly is a fire starter but you can't say he doesn't make some decent points.

Its true, it is sad that in this day and age that Americans as a people "celebrate" these types of tragic events. In my opinion its all about the "me" factor. It could be the person commiting the robbery that pulls the trigger for 40 buck or the person that runs to the store after such an event to snatch some shirts so they can sell them on eBay at an inflated cost. The jackasses that print shirts and rush to disaster zones pedaling their " I Survived " bumper stickers and all just to see what they can get out of it. You can call it what you want, the black KKK or the white KKK, Americans as a people are greedy and and quick to jump to conclusions. Whatever is going to be the best story to suit the needs of those out to make a dollar.

In talking with a couple of Sean's teamates today ( present and former ) Its got them pretty shoke up. Those guys don't even watch the news anymore because its a bunch of hype and trash.

RIP

Very good article. Its rare that you hear someone make comments like this, and such strong facts to back them up. Wonder what would have happened if this was a white columnist writing this article.

Oh wait I forgot.

I seem to have lost my freedom of speech again on this site. Maybe I should keep my comments to myself.

wow...

very interesting article.

Take from it what you will but...

I will quote this one paragraph as the one that stuck me as having the most [negative] impact on society today.

Quote:
The "keepin' it real" mantra of hip hop is in direct defiance to evolution. There's always someone ready to tell you you're selling out if you move away from the immature and dangerous activities you used to do, you're selling out if you speak proper English, embrace education, dress like a grown man, do anything mainstream.

@ Duc999 people fireback at Whitlock too LOL

but even tho I agree with the overall purpose/conclusion of the article I don't agree with all his supporting points. Yes, black people should take more responsibility on this conditions, but you can't discount the things that got them to this point and in some ways continue to work against them.

a dude on another forum made a good reply.....

i mean yea we need to change our own community but dont rule out institutionalized racism for the reason black americans hate themselves, who taught black people all over the world to hate ourselves? who made sure that when we stood up and started loving ourselves, our leaders would be assassinated? is hip hop just imagination? or does it reflect a global problem that those with power dont want to deal with? this shit aint only black americans, go to brazil if u think shit hard out here. go to jamaica, hell go to angola. i am not sayin that this makes it okay for us to kill and steal from each other, but i damn sure aint lettin them pass the buck back to us when they the reason we hate each other in the first place. tell them stop shutting down our black rpide functions and schools. tell them to stop trying to write black people out of history. black people did not show up on earth as slaves. teach the kids something positive about themselves in school the same way u teach white kids about presidents and colonizers. same way u teach white kids about columbus, teach black kids about Joseph Cinque. teach black kids about what the ancient egyptians REALLY were like. teach the black kids something more than slavery and a pale faced egypt and maybe people would start loving themselves. Education is key

lol... had to re-read that to see what yall was talkin about.... think he's referring to how Egyptians are usually portrayed as white/european or whatever. of course the debate still looms on whether they looked "arab" or black african.
