Poem: Richard Sherman

Filed under: Racism — millerlf @ 5:56 pm

Ode to Richard Sherman and Justin Bieber:

Richard Sherman–

angry, dark, loud, dreads

thuuug

Is he a credit to his race?

Is he a good role model?

Didn’t he take the course on Black leadership behavior?

what would Booker T say?

Wait, what would Jack Johnson say?

What would Fred Hampton say?

But he did break the rules.  “He may have set race relations back 100 years.”

Justin Bieber —

Fun-loving, mischievous, cute, mousse, white

thug wannabe(part-time)

Is he a credit to his race?

Is he a good role model?

What would his father say?

What would  the judge say?

What would  his homies say?

But he did break the rules.  “He may have set race relations back 100 years.” Or will his

Miami drunken rampage get him a movie deal or a new Lamborghini or a gangsta cd deal?

The Super Bowl is no longer between Seattle and Denver

SuperBowl XLVIII :Richard Sherman versus whiteness– those afraid, those defensive, those ignorant , those arrogant, haters

Bet on Richard Sherman

 “It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels his two-ness,—an American, an African American; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.”
W.E.B. Du Bois The Souls of Black Folk
