Race bias 'still rife in football'

Follow THE LOGIC.

Increasing the number of non-white people to be in close proximity to white people does not counter the SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism) and help to establish a SYSTEM of justice.

There were large numbers of non-white people in close proximity to white people during what is called "slavery" in what is referred to as the United States...even subjected to having sexual intercourse with white people...but the save was still a slave.

An increasing number of non-white people at any time and/or in any place, under a SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism), does not force white people who practice white supremacy (racism) to stop practicing it.

Don't be fooled by this strategy by white people. It is not justice.

Follow THE LOGIC.

I understand that logic.

I worked for the Seattle Supersonics back in the late 90's at their practice facility and the echoes of slavery were rampant. The potential "draftees" or "product" would come in to be "worked out" by the strength coach and the assistant coaches. The players would perform all types of tricks, exercises, would be tested for strength and endurance, shooting accuracy, would be worked to exhaustion. The only thing the coaches didn't do was check the slaves teeth or testicals to see if they'd be good breeders.

On the flipside, the media was 98 percent white, the coaching staff at the time was 90 percent white. The contempt of the coaches and the media, the paradoxical awe that they had at the players physical gifts and disrespect they had for them as men was crystal clear. Though there was one black exec in basketball operations, he was a peon and his "work ethic" was constantly questioned, ie, people indicted him for being lazy. Hmm.

Granted the players are paid mega money, but they are high priced slaves exploited for their physical gifts, enriching white men who control the game; then you've got them "hooking" generations of non-white kids- being "shoe pimps," propagating the dream of filling an NBA slave slot. Indeed, what good would it due to hire more blacks in a game that duplicates slave/master relations. Slavery ain't ovah; its just morphed into interesting new configurations with the same result.

I was watching a documentary where a white professor noted that a careful reading of the 13th Amendent that ended slavery does nothing of the sort:

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, EXCEPT as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

No wonder Eddie Bauer, Microsoft, Victoria's Secret and all kinds of corporations are using prison labor

Racism is a prison inhabited by all (only) of the people who have been convicted, by the White Supremacists, of being non-white. Hence, all of our labor is "prison labor."

maxjulian, are you a white person or a non-white person?

Non-white
African-American
male

Helix Hair,

If our labor involves chiseling our way out of the prison, does that make that action prison labor? We may be in the pen, but does that mean all action/behavior by definition is P. Labor? On the plantation, if Massa got poisoned by one of the slaves, was that prison labor, or revolt against the conditions of imprisonment?

If I refuse to pay taxes to support the military's racist war in Iraq...
If I refuse to press license plates...

Thank you for your prompt and direct answer, maxjulian.

In answer to your questions, if it's labor that a person would not be doing if not in the prison, it's prison labor. In the prison, however, some labor is more constructive (effectively counter-racist) than others. I have some working theories as to what labor is more effective. But, until Racim (White Supremacy) has been eliminated, they will remain working theories only.
