The NFL, Rush Limbaugh, and Racism

To illustrate the low cognitive ability of professional football players, read up on the responses many NFL players gave after hearing Rush Limbaugh's comment about a certain NFL player's inability to conquer the sport. Some such individuals declared they would never play for Mr. Limbaugh -- citing him as 'racist' for his comment about a specific athlete, disabling Limbaugh from buying a pro-football team.

I'm so disgusted with these imbeciles who cry "racist" every time anybody makes a negative comment about a solitary "black" or "native American" individual. I am so tired of hearing the same old rhetoric about "racial slurs." I appreciate my First Amendment right to free speech, and while any citizen of the United States of America is within his or her rights to call such a comment as Rush Limbaugh's about an inadequate professional athlete "racist," that doesn't make the offended persons in any way an accurate assessor of the comment. If they are so interested in citing racism in the media, they should boycott Essence, JET, and Ebony magazines, as well as BET: Black Entertainment Television. It is entirely hypocritical to expect to have one aboriginal demographic represented as a feature on the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine equally as often as "big bad whitey," and then have entire periodicals devoted to that same aboriginal demographic. That is true and deliberate discrimination. It's despicable, a common deviance, and very uncivilized. Does there really need to be a civil rights movement for "the big bad white people," that we may reject this form of apartheid? It's not supposed to be about "taking turns." It's supposed to be about human evolution. If you have excrement in both of your hands, it doesn't matter which one you reach into the cookie jar with; all of the cookies will be made inedible.

Another Subhuman Primate Appears on WCCO 4 News. . .

On the WCCO 10 o'clock newscast this evening, a high school student was featured for his amazing abilities: he can play a song on the piano after hearing it only once, he has composed over 100 songs -- in his head, he possesses mathematical and scientific genius, and he can recall minute -- if boring -- details from random days that transpired years ago. His blindness aside, there's just one caveat: he's autistic. As I'm sure you (my readers) are aware, one of the criteria for an autism disorder anywhere on the spectrum is a lack of the ability to feel remorse for one's wrong-doings. I know I cannot speak for anyone else, but I'll take having a conscience, thus my humanity, over all of those abilities and much, much more. No amount of fame, talent, money, awesome jewelry, genius (and I don't say that lightly at all), respect, love, and/or life-altering and mind-flaring sex could ever make up for a conscience. It's the one thing that truly separates us from laboratory monkeys. Seriously. That's it. We have the cage around ourselves (if sometimes only figuratively), and everything else, but the stamp of humanity is the ability to experience remorse from within one's spirit.
