If you have been following the bloggings and interwebs you may have heard that conservative blowhard Rush Limbaugh is interested in buying the St. Louis Rams. Why anyone would want to buy that wretched franchise, given its current state is beyond me. But it poses an interesting question: If a man who is pretty much a blatant racist tries to buy a football team, will African American players refuse to play for him? What better person to answer that question than Mathias Kiwanuka, the grandson of Benedicto Kiwanuka, who was Prime Minister of Uganda before he was murdered by Idi Amin. From the New York Post:
"All I know is from the last comment I heard, he said in (President) Obama's America, white kids are getting beat up on the bus while black kids are chanting 'right on,'" Kiwanuka told The Daily News. "I mean, I don't want anything to do with a team that he has any part of. He can do whatever he wants, it is a free country. But if it goes through, I can tell you where I am not going to play."
"I am not going to draw a conclusion from a person off of one comment, but when it is time after time after time and there's a consistent pattern of disrespect and just a complete misunderstanding of an entire culture that I am a part of, I can't respect him as a man."
Exactly, I am blushing with BC pride right now. See what happens when you make racially disparaging remarks against Donovan McNabb, and your entire talk show is a veiled attack against an entire race? You get nothing Rush, you have an entire league of football players that hate your goddamn guts, and fans that have no sympathy for your bullshit. I apologize I know politics shouldn't be brought onto this fun, dick joke loving blog, but I had to.
Oh, and Kiwi I didn't mean to call you boy. I didn't mean it like that, you're not a boy Mathias. You are quite a man, a man that could swallow and eat me.
