The Curious Case Of White Americans & Their Selective Patriotism


Unless you've been living under a rock, you should have heard that Serena Williams fell short of her goal of winning a grand slam (a term used to describe a swept of all majors within a year). Had she won the U.S. Open she would have been the first woman to achieve a grand slam since 1988. To my knowledge, she would have been the first BLACK women to achieve the feat period. She would have been 1 major away from tying the woman who currently holds the most majors. 

Watching Serena lose was heartbreaking. It was like watching someone you've grown up with fall short of a dream. I felt sorry for Serena. I think most BLACK Americans felt her pain. But what wasn't surprising was the orgasmic glee seen and felt by A LOT of WHITE Americans after Serena lost...

I have come to see that for all their talk of patriotism WHITE Americans would throw that shit straight into the bushes when faced with the possibility of a black woman (or black man) physically overpowering hundreds of whites in a sport. They don't care if that black woman or black man shares their nationality and is the frontrunner at a tournament bearing their country's name. When push comes to shove they would rather cheer for a foreign white woman or white man than a BLACK AMERICAN! 

While watching Serena fall short of her goal was troubling to black Americans, it was like a dream come true for WHITE Americans, who have always regarded Serena and her sister, Venus, as "beast," "men," and "animals." And then when Serena and Venus aren't acting "happy" and "friendly" toward "them" they want to call them "angry" "aggressive" and "bitter." 

I'm sick and tired of this shit. 

No matter how good, law-abiding, productive, rich, or successful a black person is in this country at the end of the fucking day these miserable, jealous, demonic White Americans still see a NIGGER. 

And then they wonder why we hate them.

Let's face it...when it comes to physical ability, White Americans suck! 

In a sport where they are the vast majority, two lone black girls, who grew up poor in Compton came through and kicked ass! These two black girls who didn't come from wealth, didn't have the means to travel and compete at a young age, and had the odds stacked against them came through and dominated the world of women's tennis. For well over a decade now they have been the ONLY Americans actually doing shit in women's tennis. Think about that for a minute.

I truly believe that regardless of the sport, black people will ALWAYS dominate whites. I don't care if it is tennis, golf, hockey, soccer, or bowling....when given the opportunity we will always dominate them. I believe whites (particuarly White Americans) are aware of this reality, and it makes them feel some kind of way. 

The few who actually admit it almost always want to piggyback with, "Well yeah, you blacks might dominate sports and music, but you are dead last intellectually"....as if they haven't spent hundreds of years keeping blacks from equal access to education, wealth, etc.

When given the same opportunity, same access to education, healthcare, wealth etc, black people almost always rise above whites. They know it, and it scares the shit out them. The day is coming when they will find themselves the minority amongst a sea of brown and black faces in this country. I'm curious to see how they will fare once that systematic oppression comes back to bite them in the ass. I have a feeling it's going to make this look like child's play...


This rant can go on forever, but I just wanted to share my thoughts on the sickening nonsense I've seen and read since Serena lost.
