Tell the lawyers they can take the rest of the day off.
No disrespect, but Most people don't want to touch/discuss racial issues with a 10 foot pole these days, especially in a forum about sports man. Sports are a form of escape from the real world that we can all enjoy. While I have my thoughts I'll save those for another time and place.
Nope didn't hurt my feelings it just doesn't have anything to do with Mike Johnson being arrested or the shooting on campus. I'm happy for you that you're proud of how you were raised but it's weird that you felt the need to cram it in and use it to make a point about African Americans. I'm just really struggling to see the point of your post. To me it comes across as you stroking your ego.
Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I did that mainly to demostrate the environment I was raised in(not for my "ego") as you put it and use that to get some answers from some African Americans on here to educate me on how they are raised so maybe I can understand why many, not all african Americans(and yes I know there are alot of bad white dudes out there), men especially prefer throwing their lives out when they have way better opportunities than say a kid like myself that grew up in an African environment were you can't even get a free education for example. If you ready my post with a free unbiased attitude(assuming you're one of those that hate my posts,which I could care less), then you would have understood my post...point is many of you hate my posts here because I call it as it is with no apologies whatsoever..atleast I believe that. So I tried to relate this to Mike Johnson and others because I have quetions as to why I see crimes committed when these guys have the best opportunities to be somebody better in their lives for themselves and their families. Again, no egoes on my part, just asking questions from those that might have answers.
And then there's this one:
Facebook posts. Serious business.
all that over a tweet or facebook post? A break from football is probably best for everyone involved, especially Mike.
Nothing good happens on Facebook after midnight.
You do realize that most black kids aren't natively from Africa, right? A large, large portion of them of born in this country. They are just as American as anyone else.
And stuff like this isn't a "race" thing. It's a stupid people thing.
This link also says he was assaulted as well, was she arrested?
facebook is the root cause of all evil
Of course, it sounds bad and probably is. However, let's not just applaud Campbell's reference to "zero tolerance." Let's also take seriously his statement of "as we gather more information" and "once we gain more facts." So far, it sounds like officers are responding to interviews at the time of the police call. There may be much more (or less) to this story. Let's not act like we already know things we don't.
...or Oklahoma, or go play basketball for KU.
well duh, I know that as I have a lot African American friends that are not criminals or thugs and nobody is denying that fact of them being American, to me it becomes a race thing because most, I assume black kids, key words there is "most I assume" are not brought up in good homes because maybe daddy is in prison or just a loser hustler out there doing his own thing while mommy whom does not have a job/education and live on food stamps, is left to raise the kids in poverty stricken communities with lots of violence, so when the kids grow up seeing that, they think it is ok to put a hand on someone to hurt them. I don't know for sure and that is why in my initial post I spefically ask for the perspective from African American people on the site in an attempt gain some understanding/education on a lot of brothers with an opportunity on a silver plate screw up like that, granted everyone is raised differently, but the violence reported a lot always has to do with "brothers" out there. I think its more than just a "It's a stupid people thing" issue. There is definately more root cause to violence, so lets not deny that fact and label it as a I just a "stupid people thing".
I can't believe going to jail over something as stupid as facebook.
Pretty sad day when a man puts his hand on a women.
Depends on the context. The wife likes my hands on her.
Everyone slow down. The bottom line is that this players actions will be evaluated by the staff when all facts are in. The result will be either removal or a path back to the team requiring him to earn the trust of his teammates and the staff. No more, no less.
Pics or it didn't happen
