CHARLES BARKLEY: "BLACK ENOUGH" - CRAIG SHELTON - 10/29/2014




CHARLES BARKLEY: "BLACK ENOUGH"
Written by: Craig Shelton
Date posted: 11/29/2014


The "truth" is predicated on one's personal experiences.

Charles Barkley comments aren't applicable to all Black people because our life experiences as Black people are as vast and different as the various shades of our black skin. Ultimately, where I come out in definite terms on Barkley's comments are as follows.

If there is a "dirty little secret" within the Black community as Barkley stated, the secret is the moment an African-American man marries a white woman, he inherently aborts any reasonable expectation of having any relevant amount of social cache within the majority sector of the black community.


Just know, Charles Barkley and no other Black man who goes home to a White woman speaks for the Black community.  

Charles Barkley has been "tap dancing" for White folks for years to get a reaction. Barkley has no cache with Blacks outside of NBA talk on TNT and the awesome highlights he gave basketball fans over his amazing career.

All communities of all racial and ethnic makeups have troubling concerns; we're all aware of that. We also possess the awareness to identify a Negro all too eager to say what the majority takes pleasure in hearing. We also have the awareness to question Barkley's "true" intent? Just who would benefit most from Barkley's message and why not compose a forum best suited for the desired recipients to properly receive his message?

Sorry, but for this Black man, all I got from Barkley's comments was a front row seat for another Charles Barkley, Sambo-like tap dance.

LANCE ZIERLEIN ON RATINGS WIN

Tuesday morning, Sports Talk's 790's Lance Zierlein told his coworkers they won the ratings.  In the audio, he dropped a few nuggets. I was unaware that this was the first time Sports Radio 610 had been beaten during the football season.  The other nugget, midly dropped, Lance acknowledging that is was more of the competition not performing up to par.  He said it jokingly, but it really was not that far from the truth.

ADAM CLANTON'S Matthew McConaughey Impersonation

I caught this faux interview one minute in. My dumb ass really thought it was Matthew.   Adam Clanton delivered a gem impersonation.  The questions sounded real until the repeat trailer references.  Over the years, I have died on impersonations but I really enjoyed Adam's work.

TEXANS RADIO DEEPI SIDHU ODD QUESTION TO DJ SWEARINGER

Over the weekend, I caught one of Texans Radio many programs on ABC 13.  In this particular interview, Marc Vandermeer and Deepi Sidhu were interviewing DJ Swearinger.  During the interview, they asked DJ about his background.  DJ explained, he was from the country.  At the conclusion of DJ's explanation, Deepi Sidhu asked a question I would expect from Rich Lord.

CHARLES BARKLEY ON UNINTELLIGENT BLACKS HATING SUCCESSFUL BLACKS

Basically Charles Barkley reiterated what Bill Cosby said a few years ago.  There is in some truth in Charles' take but there are some things that can be debated.  It's definitely a must listen.  What I really liked about this audio, we have heard this now from two polar opposites.  It's not exactly a "Dirty Secret", its been said

Chicago Activists Unchained, Destroy Black Leadership

As I listened to this audio, I couldn't do nothing but listen.  This is very odd days before a Mid Term Election.  It reminds me of the Swift Boat Veterans against John Kerry in 2004.  Rarely do I post any political stuff but this caught my attention.

NICK WRIGHT - UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS CLASS WARFARE BY LM


NICK WRIGHT - UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS CLASS WARFARE
Written By: LM
10.23.2014


Wednesday, The University of Texas announced, they will pay each student athlete $10K a year.

Later, a twitter friend, @dustinbennett76 told me Sports Radio 610's Morning Host Nick Wright is on a rant. I checked it out.









As I read Nick's twitter rant, I quickly realized,  he was trying to point out the hypocrisy of "socialism" and "wealth distribution" argument from the political right.  What he was trying to say, "Yo, Republicans and conservatives, what are your thoughts now about wealth distribution".   Sometimes, I really think this guy woke up yesterday and realized there is something called America.  

What's next, is he going to cross compare Affirmative Action to Legacy System Kids in major universities?  You know, kids that get in to schools based upon their family connections to a school. 

He is actually stereotyping by thinking the football and basketball teams are (Inner city kids) and all other sports are (suburban).  Don't be fooled, his use of inner city kids is code for black and suburban is white.  He also has assumes, suburban kid's parents have money on the platter for them.  We have some old fashion leftist Class Warfare aka Political Talking Point. I laugh because I have kids in college and I live in the suburbs (I'm from inner city) and I'm black but according to Nick's world I guess I'm affluent.  I guess if my kid played Tennis for UT, he or she don't need the money because I have money.  This assumes every suburban parent is a piggy bank for their kids and that's stupid.

Reading Nick's tweets, you would think he's talking Property Tax receipts collected in Third Ward funding Capital Improvement Projects in the Heights or River Oaks.  From Nick's tweets, you would think an employer received record revenues and profits on the backs of manual labor and distributed it to upper management. No, we are talking about college education.  Not only College Education but University of Texas where if you don't make it in sports, you are likely to have a nice network after you leave the program.

Nick has a problem picking his arguments to promote his political agenda.  Ranting about income distribution at the University of Texas is lame.  Yes there are lots of Inner City Blacks on the Football and Basketball teams but there are also wealthy blacks, whites and whatever else on those squads.  If you follow the logic of Nick's tweets, most would conclude that UT's basketball and football teams are Bed-Stuy Brooklyn NYC and all other sports are Hartford Connecticut.  How do you distribute money within the team itself with different classes. Pay all of the inner city players more than suburban kids on the team?

Here's the kicker, we are talking about athletes that didn't have any thoughts of money yesterday (via legal channels) and now has some positive news but Nick went for the low hanging fruit "class warfare".  Is this guy actually upset that suburban athletes will also get paid like the inner city athletes?  Is the object to help the less fortunate or shit on the fortunate, in his mind?   

The way I see it, its cool athletes are being paid period.  Who cares if a school wants to uniform payouts.  The "Nick Wright" types,  are one of the main reasons college athletes can't be paid because the shit becomes political.  These types are going to bitch no matter what.  As proven in his rant, they don't care about helping the needy, they want to squash who they believe are not needy but that will never be said because they conceal their true intentions. What's really sad, his suburban stereotype, is actually the middle class and there are idiots who think just like him.  

Dude is using broad stereotypes and generalizations, inner city kids poor, suburban kids got money.

ADAM CLANTON VS LANCE ZIERLEIN "TEXANS FIGHT" BY LM


ADAM CLANTON VS LANCE ZIERLEIN "TEXANS FIGHT"
Written By: LM
10.21.2014

WOW, at first I was actually planning on writing about the disagreement but after I listened to 790's Podcast version, I much rather write about what I heard.

During the 7 O'Clock our this morning, Lance Zierlein and Adam Clanton got into a heated debate.  It was one of those debates where I understood both sides.  No shock in knowing that Adam Clanton is all things Houston Rockets.  The Rockets are his team but he will blasts the Texans mediocrity as he should.  But, lets not act like the Rockets have been legit year in and out for the last 20 years.  I can't blame Adam or any fan for not caring about the Texans.  I care about them and that's all that matters.

It was a good debate and as I stated before, it was heated, so heated Adam yelled at Lance.  However, you will not get to hear the full debate when they were screaming because Sports Talk 790 edited the audio.  Notice in this audio how it abruptly goes to commercial in mid sentence.

This is now the second time I've caught 790 altering their audio.  How sensitive are the 790 hosts?  Who's idea was it to modify the audio?  What was the big deal with two grown men disagreeing?
LMAO, some of these hosts are way too sensitive.  I have a hunch who probably had the audio edited.

(addition) Later, I reached out to Sports Talk 790's Producer Michael Connor about the audio.  In a tweet, Michael explained the issue.



Below is some of the heated audio between Lance and Adam

LANCE ZIERLEIN VS NICK WRIGHT, NATIONAL STORIES by LM


LANCE ZIERLEIN VS NICK WRIGHT, NATIONAL STORIES
Written By: LM
10.18.2014

I'm a total loser for this article but I admit, I actually monitor twitter activity especially when it comes to local media.

As much as the local media say,

  • They dislike Twitter
  • Twitter is negative
  • Inaccuracies of Twitter
  • They don't care about Twitter

We all know, they love it.  About 3 years, I started a blog post that tracked Twitter Local Sports Media followers.  It allowed me (for the most part) to gauge what host(s) are being felt on social media.

LANCE ZIERLEIN VS NICK WRIGHT

When any  local guys Break or involved in a local story, I like to monitor how Twitter reacts.

A month ago when the Adrian Peterson Child Abuse story broke, Nick Wright was a huge center piece in terms of reporting.  Nick had a lot of information regarding the story.  So much information, he made his rounds via multiple national shows on TV and Radio.  I was expecting Nick to get a huge bump in followers but I didn't notice it on Twitter.

Friday, Seattle Seahawks traded Percy Harvin to the New York Jets.  Lance Zierlein begin dropping nuggets on the 411 via his inside connect.  Eventually Adam Schefter retweeted a few of Lance's tweets and Lance gained a significant amount of followers.

Below are what the Twitter Follows looked like in September. Nick Wright has always enjoyed a comfortable lead over Lance.  That said, Nick entered the market with a huge twitter following.


After the Percy Harvin/Seahawks Story



WRAP IT UP

As I looked at the twitter behavior, I came to the following conclusion.  Sports Big Stories is still stronger than Social/Off The Field Stories in Sports Talk.  Real Talk, I think Nick Wright had the story with the most impact.  The Adrian Peterson story went beyond sports.

Both received national attention via various formats.  From a sports Point Of View, the stories didn't anything to do with the Houston Texans although Adrian Peterson was locally related to Houston.

Any who, by the time this article is completed, Lance Zierlein will have surpassed Nick Wright in twitter follows.  

What's odd in all of this, Lance Zierlein is still not verified by Twitter.  For the amount of sports information Lance tweets, I would think he would be verified but he's not.  Below is a tweet Lance tweeted me about Twitter Verification.
