White people’s primary means of maintaining domination over non-white people is through the use of deception. As such, the universe is bloated with incorrect data and malarkey. Consequently, a staple aspect of Gus’ counter-racist code takes for granted that when White people directly or indirectly participate in events that contradict logic, White Supremacy/Racism is in full effect. We’ll use the Los Angeles Lakers as a case study.
The 2012 Lakers were handily defeated in the conference semifinals. One of their major deficits was a lack of athleticism and vitality from the point guard position. They jettisoned 37-year-old Derrick Fisher (black male) midway through the season; Fisher started at point for five Laker championship teams. But as the great Charles Barkley says, “The NBA is no country for old men.” Late 30’s is ancient in basketball years. In an effort to upgrade their backcourt and perimeter defense, the Lakers acquired two time MVP, 38-year-old Steve Nash – White male.
37 = too old.
38 = just right.
Because the System of White Supremacy provides a steady diet of deceit, it hampers our ability to accurately access value. The 2012 – 2013 Laker squad was/is mightily over-valued (which led to a black male losing his job, but we’ll discuss that later). Kobe Bryant is still one of the top three players on the planet. But he is 34; he’s not capable of carrying a team for a full season at this stage of his career. He began the season injured, which tends to happen with age. Dwight Howard is the best center in basketball, but he’s recuperating from back surgery. He missed most of training camp and reported that he does not expect to be full strength until February 2013.
But they got Steve Nash!
Before you defend the Johannesburg native, Racist Suspect, remember… $8,900,000. That’s Nash’s salary for the 2012 – 2013 season - a season in which he missed 24 of the first 31 games. Nash ain’t Joe The Plumber or a blond toddler begging for scraps. Legions of White hard court fans felt justified criticizing three time MVP LeBron James for his failures to secure a championship and not measuring up to MVP standards. Well, Nash is a two time MVP, he’s never made The Finals, and his bball accomplishments pale to King James’. In fact, Gus contends Nash wouldn’t have those MVP’s if it weren’t for the System of White Supremacy.
Gus, are you saying an 8 time all-star, 5 time NBA assist leader and 7 time All-NBA team member is overrated?
Because he’s White?
Allow me illustrate. In May 2012, Dr. David Leonard – Suspected White Supremacist – visited The C.O.W.S. to discuss his debut publication, After Artest: The NBA and the Assault on Blackness. This White man posits that David Stern and the White officials who preside over the NBA coordinated an anti-black campaign in the wake of the 2004 brawl between the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers. The Victim of Racism formerly known as Ron Artest was suspended for the remainder of the 2005 season. The league subsequently barred high school players from entering the draft and instituted a player dress code. Many White and non-white people have branded these policies Racist. It was almost exclusively black males rejecting the NCAA plantation for the NBA draft. And the dress code... well... Stern and company could have explicitly stated: we don't want you niggers dressing like niggers and scaring our White fan base.
Scores of Whites have acknowledged that many White people are repulsed with the NBA – and the White House - because of the high melanin levels. And looped footage of 6’7” Artest/Metta World Peace defending himself and charging a pale, petrified White Man in the Auburn Hills suburbs could’ve dented ticket sales. Stern – an attorney – and White league officials wouldn’t let World Peace ruin them. So they hyped a White Man.
Gus invested a shameful amount of time viewing NBA games when he was more confused about Racism; he’s seen many MVP’s. They tend to have melanin. For three consecutive seasons following the Detroit brouhaha, a White Man was crowned Most Valuable Player. Nash in ’05 and ’06, Dirk Nowitzki in ’07. It had been 19 years since a White man received this accolade (Larry Bird 1986). Bird was the only White man awarded an MVP in the 25 years preceding Nash’s 2005 accomplishment. Much like albino chipmunks or NBA teams with only White point guards, a White MVP is a most uncommon siting; coincidentally, this season’s Lakers got two White point guards. One intriguing stat is that Steve Blake - the other pale point in LA - has also missed 24 of the first 31 games.
If superior NBA marketing can manipulate legions to bludgeon their own grandmother, brave arctic cold and pepper spray for a $200 pair of sweatshop sneakers, they can certainly convince a sizable population that a White player is better then he actually is. A good number of White fans have been pining for a Caucasian hoops hero since Bird left the Garden - they’d such high hopes for Jason “White Chocolate” Williams. Hoards of Caucasian fans voiced their antipathy with cornrowed, dark pigmented, tattooed, teenage millionaires marauding the hardwood. But these same Racists fawned over a man nicknamed WHITE CHOCOLATE.
“White Chocolate” provides a marvelous illustration of White people’s ability to distort the value or importance of people and things.
As a rookie, Williams was a legitimate sensation, to the point where he got attention that far exceeded his actual contributions to the Kings' success. In fact, the team didn't really take off until Williams was shipped to the Grizzlies for Mike Bibby (non-white male)... [Full report]
The Williams hype preceded Nash by a couple years, so White league officials had recent practice propagandizing pale players. Nash is unquestionably superior to Williams, so his fraudulent campaign worked even better – to the tune of consecutive MVP’s.
As always, context is integral to understanding the need for and success of the Nash deception. In the three years preceding Nash being declared 2005 MVP, White/Racist NBA angst was booming. LeBron James’ 2003 debut was the capstone of you young black males invading the league from high school. And as evidenced by James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Dwight Howard, Jermaine O’Neal, Amar’e Stoudemire and many others, these players weren’t just taking up spots on a roster. Many of them became dominant, franchise players. The 2004 brawl in Detroit centered on World Peace, but Jermaine O’Neal was also involved. He was filmed giving a sledgehammer right hand to a Racist Suspect who stormed the court during the melee. In 2003 Bryant was accused of raping a White woman in Colorado. This taps a Racist nerve that has prompted untold acts of White Terrorism. The court proceedings and media attention lasted a year – and continue to mar Bryant’s legacy. The shameful bronze medal finish at the 2004 Olympics in Athens – which featured, James and “NBA thug” prototype, Allen Iverson. The bronze failure was just a few months before the Detroit debacle. And in 2003, five time MVP Michael Jordan retired. White people made him the epitome of William Rhoden’s 40 Million Dollar Slave. Scores of writers commented on Jordan’s “vanilla” personality (Vanilla is frequently associated with White, but it’s birthed from a tar black bean). When this term is used, people most often mean that Jordan behaved in manner pleasing to Racists/Whites. He never, ever commented on Racism or anything remotely political. He chided Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf for refusing to participate in the national anthem, and declined to support Harvey Gantt’s (black male) unsuccessful campaigns against former North Carolina senator and notorious Racist, Jesse Helms.
To Whites, it was like watching the plantation shift from well trained/seasoned slaves who worked diligently and silently obeyed master, to a crop of younger, rebellious hands who constantly question the overseer and potentially jeopardize the harvest. With a system founded on deception, Whites found it economically viable – and gratifying - to fraudulently glorify Nash as the best player in the league as opposed to promoting cornrowed, melanated, tattooed teens – one being an accused rapist. Whites forge the skills and accomplishments of White people ad infinitum. Lance Armstrong. Elvis. White Jesus. It’s reflex to unhesitatingly accept the hyped White.
Which is why Gus is getting a small heap of enjoyment watching the Laker plantation’s epic fail. Lies can’t endure forever, and the mythology of Nash-the-great unravels further with each loss. LA has solved none of the problems they whined about for the duration of last season – lack of speed and youth in the back court, and it’s only getting worse as the number of extraordinarily skilled, black point guards abounds in the Western Conference.
We’ll pen a part two to this piece, as Nash is not the White person most to blame. Mitch Kupchak, Jim Buss and White Laker management decided to employee the services of Nash for $8.9 million this season. These same White people chose to terminate Mike Brown – black male – when this season’s fiasco began. This is also a standard Racist exercise – 1-800-BLAME-A-NIGGER.
