Having gone to West Side,  I always noticed how our school played second fiddle to Roosevelt in the minds of the elders in my neighborhood as well as the sports writers. I understood history was on their side.

As I understand it, Roosevelt was the place where black kids attended high school during the segregated times of the city…before white flight. Though all Gary High Schools were all black during my time, Roosevelt always seem to get the attention AND ALL THE CALLS whenever they played West Side.

Didn’t matter to me. I was a proud Cougar. Could have gone to Horseman but had to follow in the foot steps of my bro and sis as well as several other close neighbors and attend the best school in G.I., West Side! I went to ALL the games before I got to West Side because my bro and sis went there, and of course I went to all of them when I got to high school. I was and still very passionate about my Cougars.

I remember how Winston Garland used to stick it to the Side when he played at Velt. I remember it all too well. I guess El Dubb alumni can understand when I say OH HELL NO to a Velt Alumni coaching West Side. They’ve had to go through it with Notty.

I think the people on that school board are F’d up. They are botching the coaching hiring of football and now they choose the enemy to coach West Side! That’s like the Bulls signing John Starks… just makes no sense.

I’m sure he’ll be a great coach. But couldn’t they have found someone with Cougar blood! Hell I’ll take ole Ike back before I’ll take this. I now understand what John Boyd was talking about when he left the Side for MC. He mentioned how he could get NO RESPECT, being one of three coaches in Gary history to win the state championship ( the other two- Mallard and Heflin- coached at that scrub school Velt).  I mean, Boyd was an alumni of West Side! HE WON THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. WHILE COACHING IN GARY! He went there, taught there, ran his mouth there ( I went to school with him and boy could he do this!). AND he was a hell of a coach there.  now I know why. The people on the Gary school boards are Panther Homers. 🙂

I would take Omar (Wirt’s old Coach) over a Velt alum. Wirt was chumps anyway. The rivalry between West Side and Roosevelt will just not be as good with Garland at coach.

HE’S GOING TO CHEAT FOR VELT. When the games on the line, he’ll pull his best player or something like that!

JUST KIDDING. I’m not that much of a fanatic.

But I do think its a sad day in the history of Gary West Side high school basketball… But it could have been worse. We could have gotten Notty. Oh hell no!

This post serves as a check point and archive of the various racist events that I have witnessed during the Obama Administration which were directed towards Barack Obama.  They speak for themselves…

This depiction of President Barack Obama emailed to other conservatives stating that Obama is an “African Witch Doctor” that will cause the quality of care in the country to worsen, caused it’s creator

Dr. david-mckalip (name in caps intended to show no respect for person)

to issue a statement that he would withdraw from public debate about a public health care plan.

The actual pic that was altered isn’t even that of an African Witch Doctor.  It’s a Papua New Guinea tribesman…

I wonder if he has any black patients that has seen this…

Anyway, this is the first entry, though I will be going backwards towards January 09 to find and post other examples of Digital Jim Crow…

Republican Mayor Sends Hilarious “Not Racist” White House ‘n Watermelon Joke

Watermelon patch in the lawn of the Obama White House

The Mayor joked, “No Easter Egg Hunt this year.” Ha ha, because Muslims don’t celebrate Easter, right? (Sure, they celebrate Good Friday, but anyway ….)

Ousted Staten Island education official apologizes over racist e-mail

Mock Photo Strip sent by Salvatore Ballarino

The e-mail, which Ballarino forwarded on Jan. 4 to about 30 people, depicted a photo strip of a mock debate between Barack Obama and John McCain that was rife with racist jokes about black people, including comparisons of African American babies to excrement.

GOP candidate wins despite racism flap

audra-shay-young republicans-facebook-03_233200859004

Thirty-eight-year-old Audra Shay’s campaign to become the next chairman of the Young Republicans went from obscure to infamous over the past week, after The Daily Beast revealed details of posts of her Facebook account. Specifically, a thread where one of her friends posts that “Obama Bin Lauden [sic] is the new terrorist… Muslim is on there side [sic]… need to take this country back from all of these mad coons… and illegals,” and Shay responds eight minutes later with: “You tell em Eric! lol.”

“This is an outrage and I CAN NOT believe this nation has him as our leader! It makes me sick!” She posted a few minutes later: “My disdain for Obama is directly proportionate for his disdain of this country.”

To view more intelligent statements from this “young” 38 year old Republican leader, go here:

The reason I’ve been a registered independent for the past 10 years is demonstrated by the actions of the so called “Blue Dog Democrats” with respects to health care reform.

I believed that Bill Clinton AND Hillary Clinton were “blue dog Democrats” all along. They were just smarter ones then those who are currently blocking health care reform. I mean, the State of North Carolina is dominated by the Democrat Party at the state level. I have found their political behavior to be akin to that of Republicans when it comes to corruption and bigotry here in the State of North Carolina.

Now Kay Hagan, MY SENATOR, is essentially identifying with the coalation of Democrats (Blue Dog Democrats) who  are in opposition to a public health care plan?

!#&@*^%+ (WTF is Wrong with This Woman)

It’s a new day. With blogs and whatnot, Kay’s gotta learn that this type of behavior will surely see to it that she is a one term politician. The only way her sorry arse beat Elizabeth Dole is because those of US who voted for her sorry arse wanted someone in there who would be for change.

Instead, Hagan is the status quo! What’s the difference between Dole and Hagan so far? Nothing! Oh, and those rural voters who suffer the most with respects to receiving sub par health care, they got the internet now. They see your behavior.

If the Republicans can waste 1 trillion on a war that did not bring one benefit to the American people, then  1 trillion spent on Health care reform that benefits ALL American People is money that is better spent.

If Hagan was saying that she opposed the reform because it allowed illegals to benefit from the plan, then I’d understand. But this crap about it being too expensive. That what’s getting you in trouble.

How dare Republicans and these punk Democrats that allow their Republican Masters to pull their strings bring up cost issues. The People are well aware of the money they wasted on the War in Iraq the past 6 years. That’s why their on the ropes.

Spend MY MONEY/TAXES on something that I do support, health care reform. Not on funding the pockets of the Republicans constituents, the banking industry, the military industrial complex the health care industry and the Oil industry.

I think we need to take a look and what Glaxo and the Bayer’s out there are contributing to Kay Hagan. It looks like she might be in their pocket…

Michael Steele is trying to woo blacks into the GOP joking that he’d bring “fried chicken and potato salad to a GOP cookout for the recruitment of blacks while a gay black blogger would bring the “collard greens”.

This dude is a clown.

And how come every time I go into Bojangles here in NC, there are more whites in there eating “fried chicken” then any other customer?

She is the second coming of George W. Bush when it comes to properly representing Republican Ideology.  Unlike someone like Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin is an easy smack down. Just let her have a press conference and watch her make no sense at all, Ala George Bush AND Bobby Jindal.

When it comes to Republicans, gender is no issue in the area of ineptness. The men are as inept as the women.

Self destruction.

Even if things change by tomorrow, the verdict is in…the leaders of the Gary Indiana School system from top to bottom are inept.

Enough of th excuses. To not have the high school football coaches INTERVIEWED 3 weeks before the first games are played is unacceptable. Especially if the decision was made to actually interview basketball coaches before the football coaches. Plain and simple. This is a leadership issue. The haters are all out there (Crown Point, Hobart, Merriville, Valpo citizens alike) licking their chops. Your giving them the meat to feed there contempt of all things Gary with your lack of leadership on something that really should not be that difficult.

The real sad part about this is that it’s the kids that are being HURT by this more then anything else. If sports is an outlet, Gary’s youth need more of it, not less opportunity to participate in it. This is exactly what this has caused, a lessened opportunity for Gary youth to participate in something that will keep them out of streets! And lets face it, Gary high school football needs as much practice as it can get.

It’s bad enough this debacle has caused the loss of one of Gary’s prized coaches, John Boyd of West Side. It’ll be even worse when one of those potential West Side/Lew Wallace or Roosevelt students gets into some negative situations during times in which they’d normally be in practice.

Gary’s summers are normally rough incident wise.

Things are going  a wire. All of these deaths of relatively young black American celebrity men . Gerald Levert, Sean Levert, Bernie Mac, MICHAEL JACKSON, now Steve McNair.

Regardless of what Mike wanted, these were all black men. Falling dead either in their prime or in the prime of their careers.  This needs to be addressed within the black  blog  community as well as withing the community themselves. It’s just not happening to the “gang bangers”. It’s happening to Regular Brotha’s and the so regular brotha’s (celebrities).

We gotta talk…
