Can we Agree to Disagree?

by Coltrane @ 9/27/2006 10:25:00 AM

I was recently asked by a friend for my thoughts regarding comments made by former Sports Reporters Co-host and Kansas City Sports writer Jason Whitlock. Just to paraphrase his comments in the interview in the interest of time: Scoop Jackson and Flavor Fav are Bojangles and there is a war of coonification going on amongst Black Americans and yes we have to pick sides....... The 5 percenters vs. the 10 percenters.....

I read 'The Souls of black folks', and Dubois never mentioned the ignorant ass m*&^** 5 percenters in his book.

I disagree with Jason Whitlock's premise in the interview of a new war between Black Folks and a somehow parallel of this war to a new 21st Century Civil Rights Movement. Basically, he's played the Michael Eric Dyson card, when he went at Cosby, in this case ESPN Columnist Scoop Jackson. My issue with this is in both cases is this plays into the ultimate goal of Willie Lynchism. 'Divide and the they will never rise as a people'. When these public tiffs amongst black folks arise, I always think why not show a united front in public then work together and fix ourselves and our problems in private? Being a sports writer, you would think Mr. Whitlock would understand that concept. Most Championship Teams keep their dirty laundry in the house. Why air another brother out? What do we gain as a people?

Wouldn't another approach be:

"While I know Mr. Cosby and I are trying to get to the same place regarding the urban black youth of America, I think we should take the following steps to do so. I believe the steps he's articulating as a means of eradicating the problem are slightly different, but in the end we're both worried about the same thing .......black children"

"While I think Scoop has made some valid points and some points with which I don't agree, the great thing about America is there is a channel, website, periodical, blog for each of us to speak freely and honestly from our own perspectives. I'm not a 5'3 black man from the south side of chicago, so I can't really speak to his truths, but the great thing is we can all have medium to not only speak our views but feed our families in the process....That's the great thing about America."

"While I don't particularly enjoy the Flavor Flav show myself and some of the actions of the women are somewhat embarrassing, I do think it's great that hip-hop has grown to the point of there being a vehicle for militant conscience rapper like the former hype man from Public Enemy to still express himself. Yet another great thing about America'

Why can't black men agree to disagree without cutting each other's throat?

Our focus should be on getting the habitually racist Senator Allen out of Virginia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our focus should be on getting Congressman Harold Ford elected to the Senate in the state of Tennessee!!!!!

Our focus should be on taking legal action in the state of Maryland over voter irregularities, and getting a run-off so the true Democratic candidate Kweisi Mfume can run for the senate seat against Steele!!!!!!!

WE have a lot of work to do and having two irrelevant ass sports writer dish dirt on each other is a distraction we don't need..
