(The Wire)   One graduated from Stanford with a 3.9 GPA and showed poor sportsmanship after biggest win of his career. The other street-raced a sports car while drunk. Guess which one the pundits labeled "misguided" and which one they called a "dangerous thug"?   (thewire.com) divider line 45

I think we're all forgetting that this black man unleashed his thuggishness in the vicinity of a PRETTY WHITE WOMAN. Yes, he exercised his free speech, but doing so made an attractive white woman BRIEFLY CONFUSED AND UNCOMFORTABLE.

This was that woman before Sherman thugged his thuggery at her:

xtrc8u: "Thug" is being thrown around too much. He yelled in a loud stadium after a highly emotional moment and was clearly upset. Sounded like a pro wrestling interview.  He used words, not physical violence, to express himself. He did not curse. He did not beat up the reporter and steal her lunch money. No "thug like" activity was seen.
Using the drunk teenager behaving badly as a comparison of being a thug is laughable.

Beiber. Thug. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha ....

Impossible? no. I also can't say it's impossible the Earth has been visited by space aliens.

But which is FAR more likely, a 3.9 football player or another example of a cheat for grades? The numbers say the latter.

Mi-5: Serious Black: Did anybody in the media call the Vancouver and Calgary hockey players thugs for instigating five separate fights within the first two seconds of their game this past Saturday and triggering 142 penalty minutes?

Of course not.  Hockey thugs are called "goons" or "enforcers", and the sport is mostly white, so it's all okay there.

Sherman was right.  People were quick to jump on the "thug" line and call him "dangerous".  For what?  Because he was saying what he said in the presence of lilly-white Erin Andrews?  So Fox and all the others decide to "white-knight" her and save her from the dangerous Stanford grad?

BTW, Erin Andrews was jacked up about Sherman herself, and loved his spontaneous reaction:   http://blog.seattlepi.com/football/2014/01/23/erin-andrews-on-richard - sherman-interview-it-was-awesome/

But Bieber, spits on people, drives drunk and racing a sports car in a neighbourhood, getting into random scuffles with paparazzi,  eggs neighbour's homes, is a "misguided" guy.  WTF ever, Bigots.

Sherman was right; people are using the "thug" term to cover what they really want to say.


Where is this bullshiat meme that Bieber is getting a pass coming from?

I haven't read anything good about Bieber in years, except when he was nice to some girl with cancer.  He's mocked constantly, and as far as I can tell deservedly so (viz the Anne Frank remark).

But now because a black guy acted like a jerk on national television, we have to pretend that Bieber is being treated like a little angel.   Screw them both.

And just to illustrate, sometimes it takes a white celebrity acting a fool to show how ridiculous the usual comments are when a black celebrity does the same.

Now, how about if one of your opponents tried to fight you last year at a charity race, was a c*nt before the meet, said you weren't the best even though you were, then cut you off in your lane (if that were somehow possible without getting DQ'd) and you still beat him, then you went to shake his hand and he pushed you in the face?

[cbssports.com image 640x400]

I have no opinion on thuggery or lackthereof. But what he was doing there was saying, "that play I just made? It won the game." The game wasn't over yet when he did it, but he was rubbing it in Crabtree's face that it was pretty much a done thing.


The game was over. It wasn't rude.

Also, when did Crabtree suddenly become an innocent? This is the guy who raged out and refused to play because Hayward-Bey was a higher draft pick.
