Good world, what’s going on? This is your man Handy back on it with another blog for the masses. Black History Month for 2014 have not necessarily been the best for me, but there is always March around the corner haha!!! But let’s end off the month right by making sure we hit a Black History topic all of us can relate. Nigga, nigga, nigga, nigga!!! My nigga, your nigga, everyone a nigga!!! (In my Katt Williams voice) Say it with me one time!!!!! Let me take time to all my NIGGAS in the world.

Sounds like I’m out of control right now. Sounds like I am trying to offend some people right? Being a black man in America, do you now give me a pass? Is it now okay for me to just throw the word everywhere and anywhere. If I were a middle aged white man, would you be outraged and angered? Would you want my blog taken down from the Internet? If I were a young Spanish woman, would you be confused on how to feel? Would you be indifferent about me using the word? These are all different questions that we as a society ask ourselves when referencing the use of the N word.

The Weight of the World…

Sorry bloggers, I have been M.I.A. for a while. Just needed a break from writing to get refreshed and energized. Call it writers’ block or call it laziness, but either way I’m back in rare form ready to give to the masses fresh material out on these streets. So with that said let’s get right back into it.

So I was watching YouTube and came across a revelating video. It was a clip about Derrick Rose crying at an Adidas event held in his hometown of Chicago. Now for those who don’t know who Derrick Rose is, let me give you a quick bio. Derrick Rose is now the point guard of the NBA team Chicago Bulls. His athleticism is extraordinary and considered one of the best, if not the best point guard in the game today.

Recently in sports news, there has been a big ordeal making a lot of noise. BOUNTY HUNTING across the NFL, has come to the forefront causing all types of dismay.  For those of you who miss episodes of Sportscenter, and have been living under a rock for the past few days, this topic hit the presses over the weekend.  The NFL team the New Orleans Saints were exposed for bounty hunting over a span of years, while defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was there.  Bounty hunting is pretty much when players are payed for devastating hits.  There lies the problem, making the sport even more dangerous and deadly in nature.  As I look into more about bounty hunting, I find that many players felt it has always been around, and not a big issue.  I as a fan can’t respect this at all, I don’t want to see big name players injured so somebody can get a quick bonus.  … keep reading!

damn again?!?!

The NFL has teams located in 32 cities across the country, many of the teams have a wide variety races who play on a daily basis. Unfortunately that  does not hold true for the coaching staff, and even the next level of general managers. After the recent firing of Raiders head coach Hue Jackson, we got into heated conversation about the league. Now I do acknowledge that many of followers may not keep up with football as much as  WE do; however, I ask for you to focus more on the numbers at hand then the sport itself.  Often the phrase ” men lie, women lie, numbers don’t”  is tossed around frequently, but in this case it’s very well warranted.  … KEEP READING!

It Has Returned!!

Yes, the NBA has returned. As of Friday December 9th, NBA teams opened and began their training camps. The first official game will be a Christmas gift, for all to enjoy on Christmas Day.  After taking part in a lock out that stretched for a period of more than 5 months and missing the entire first month of the season (about 240 games), they have ended the lockout ready to get back on the hardwood.  Fans everywhere are excited, but have the players set themselves up for disaster?? The NBA was on freeze due to disagreements with two sides that matter the most, the players and the owners. Money being the major conflict of it all… proving that yet again money makes the world go round.  After several collective bargaining agreement (CBA) meetings the players and owners alike have come to a ‘compromise’.  During the lockout, I as a fan felt the players were being selfish, and unwilling to bend for the season to take off.  After the deal has been signed, and things are back in action, I retract my thoughts about the players. … KEEP READING!

To Be or Not To Be… A Black Quarterback

So after watching Donovan McNabb lose his spot twice for essentially no reason, David Garrard lose his spot for essentially no reason, and Jason Campbell essentially losing his spot before our eyes, I have come to the conclusion that it’s impossible to be successful in the NFL as a black quarterback. It seems as if the most basic of white quarterbacks keep their spots forever (Carson Palmer, Matt Hasselback, etc…), but the minute a black QB flips up, he’s outta there faster than a fat chick playing dodgeball. Come on people, you cannot tell me McNabb isnt better than Rex Grossman and John Beck. REX GROSSMAN though?!!! This is the same Rex Grossman that has more INTS than TDS for his career. As my man Cris Carter says on NFL PRIMETIME, #COMEONMAN!! We watched Brett Favre get chance, after chance when he clearly ended the Packers, Jets and Vikings seasons throwing picks. We are watching Palmer play with the Raiders when he has a career losing record and yet Garrard sits at home when he is clearly better than the Chiefs, Bears or Texans current QBs. All im sayin is this slap in the face that the NFL is clearly giving to black QBs has to stop…

So recently the assistant coach for Syracuse Univ Bernie Fine, was fired for not 1, not 2, but 3 counts of being a perv.  Much respect for all the young men who came forward, because this shizer is getting out of control. WTF is wrong with old white men playing grabby grabby with young kids.  This is shizer is disgusting…  These old heads have wives, kids, dogs, cats, and choose to throw it all away. Think about the CATS AND THE DOGS! What have they EVER DONE TO DESERVE THIS?! Now he’s fired, they are prob goin to lose their home and the cats and dogs will be homeless, shizers just not right smh. Sorry guys, I went off on tangent just now. What makes it even crazier is, his wife admitted to knowing what went down. Like why would you EVER just let that go. I have got cursed out for looking at tv models too hard, I mite get shot for even thinking about playing grabby grabby with anyone.  This shizer needs to stop. I’m sure there is another university waiting in the rafters, ready to get exposed for having their hand in the cookie jar.  Young men watch out, these coaches hand shakes may not match their smiles.
