You’re reading the story wrong. That’s just all there is to it. I appreciate that you live in a world where the cops are all honest guys doing an honest days work to keep you safe, and that may actually be true where you are. But that isn’t true here. There’s something you have to think about. There’s a world out there that you just simply don’t understand, and you never will. It’s not your fault, it’s just a part of life.
Whenever you see stories about how these athletes deal with the police one HUGE elephant lives in the room. We’re talking about young black men and police. That history isn’t so good. I’m not going to talk a lot about Cincinatti, but that city is known for it’s police killing a lot of black men. So the Bengal’s crime troubles run a lot deeper than a bunch of stupid niggers getting in trouble. That’s too easy, and it’s lazy.
So on to Ceddy B. That arrest where he was on the boat. That’s bullshit and if you read any of the facts you’ll know that straight away. What we have is a guy on a boat. The cops come and talk to him. At least four of them walk him off around a corner so he’s removed from the sight of the people who were with them. All of a sudden he decides to attack the cops? You can’t believe that and have a brain. Naw. That was a case of a good old fashioned nigger beating. So much so, in fact, that one of the people on the boat called her father (who was a big time lawyer) to figure out how to get Cedric out of that situation. How many articles did you read pointing that out? Lazy ass journalists just giving you the easy story.
Now this most recent incident. The Austin police (who are notoriously racist. check the youtubes sometime) are called in on a bar fight. They wait OVER A MONTH to call up Cedric and have him fly back to Austin? How many bar fights are there every night? How many times have you ever heard of someone getting arrested months after it happened when no one was injured or killed? Never. Because it doesn’t happen. What we had was a bunch of white kids pickin on poor Cedric (facts, look at ’em) and when bad shit goes down the Austin cops waste over a month of tax payer dollars to investigate this. What do they find? That they need to call in Cedric Benson so they can arrest him long after the fact. Because during that time no other bar fights had occurred in that Small Texas college town. Give me a break.
Now I know that the race card makes people bristle. That’s because they don’t want to believe they live int he real world. They live in a fantasy world where people don’t have biases and prejudices against other people. Sorry to break it to you, people suck. If you stop taking the easy way out and look at some of the situations that go on in this country you’ll see how royally jacked up it all is.
Racism exists. Just because the cross burning thing has died down doesn’t mean those feelings and sentiments are gone. You think in the space of 50 years everything people believed has just up and gone away? No sir, it has just changed forms. Now they institutionalize it. The people who never ever have to deal with it love saying how my people only use it as an excuse just so you can make yourselves feel better about whatever issues you have going on in your life. That’s just more willful ignorance.
