What does this even mean?

This is quite possibly one of the most offensive headlines I have ever seen.

When I was in High School, I went over one of my friends house who happened to be white and his father was there. My friend and I were cool, we never talk about black and white things, we were just friends. So, I am over his house and his father is watching the news. Some black guy got arrested and his father starts dropping “N-Bombs”.

I was in shocked because I was sitting right there, I told my friend I was uncomfortable and he said something that I’ll never forget.

“Rob, you are different black guy, not like those N*ggers”

Meaning that some white people are cool with a certain type of black person, as if we still aren’t all black and that suppose to make their prejudice, stereotypes and racism ok.

The Dallas Morning News tries to blame Lou Holtz, but it was their headline and they knew exactly what they were doing.

“Not a Hip-Hop Coach = Black guy who prejudice white people are going to attempt to like.”

I hope Strong knows what he is in for in Texas.

    The most ridiculous thing is the “clarification” that stresses the word “NOT.” Like the DMN is saying, “no no no, guys you’re bugging out over nothing, the quote is that he’s NOT actually a hip hop coach.” Totally missing the point in the first place.

      What this is all about is another attempt at race baiting by Blacksport Online. How long did you have to search to find something for which you could start something? But from my point of view it might mean that Charlie Strong is a serious and talented coach, and not some trash talking ghetto gang banger bringing his low life culture to the college coaching ranks. How’s that BSO?

      • Funcrusher says:

        Speedle, I was trying to listen to your racist garbage, but your daughter is slurping too loudly on my black stick. Now get off the library computer and clear out the interracial porn you beat your chub to.

    This is why I said in a past story that this will be one of the biggest challenges for Charie Strong! Sylvester Croom had to deal with the same kind of situation. Same racism, different state, different university. It’s the type of obstacle I know Charlie Strong will overcome. I’m not from Texas, but now I say hook ’em Horns!

    Quote from Malcolm X-
    “There’s no place that man (White People) has gone and it’s been peace and harmony”.

    • Craig says:

      @Power 2 Tha People U are totally correct, war, disease and death follow them not to mention greed.

    • Morgan says:

      Where have black people gone that experiences peace and harmony? Compare Europe and Africa.

    • jamesben says:

      Ya, sure, RACIST. What are the murder rates amongst black people in Detroit, Chicago, ghetto D.C.? Name ANY peaceful African country – they’re ALL violent DISASTERS. Add Islam in – and you double disaster.

      Stop blaming your own failings on “da white man.”

      Black people in the USA have MORE opportunities to succeed than anywhere on EARTH.

      If you still fail, look in the gdamn mirror.

    Robert Littal said, …”Some white people are cool with a certain type of black person, as if we still aren’t all black…” What Robert experienced is what Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell, Susan Rice, the President and his wife deal with every day. What makes them strong is that they have the power to not react in a violent manner. They continue to follow the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King. That is why they have succedded. That is why young black boys and girls should use men such as the President and Charlie Strong as guides to success. If they can do it, all black boys and girls can do it.

      @nba is fixed kiss my behind, white people love bringing up MLK, MLK was the safe black guy, I avoid the safe black guys when he was alive whites hated MLK now that hes dead they wanna hold his words against rightfully upset blacks, I say this if white people love u, u are doing something wrong, I gravitate toward blacks that white people hat, white people never quote Malcom X hmmm I wonder why? And F Obama.

      I’ve got that same u are a good black guy comments, I’ll say this black Americans are the most peacefulk people on the planet to their detriment they have been brainwashed into thinking the USA cares about them an looks at them as an equal, Marching accomplishes nothing, while on the other hand white people are the most evil and problem causing people on the planet, plenty of facts to back that up, not all white people but u get my drift dont get too comfortable around them.

      • a dose of reality says:

        Racist Much?

      • Chris says:

        You obviously must not realize how ignorant you sound. I will give you that white people have a pretty deplorable history of violence, but you have only to look to the east, in Africa to see what blacks are capable of doing as well (hello Rwanda!). And to that point I would further suggest it’s not even a black or white thing, but a human thing.

        We’re only a few generations removed from segregation. It’s going to take a few more generations even for that deep seated bigotry to weed itself out. There are quite a lot of nuances and wrinkles to the problem right now as well a fair amount of ignorance on both sides.

      • speedle says:

        Hey pal, don’t you think it’s about time you stopped groveling in your skin color and using it as an excuse for failure? Nobody cares who you are “comfortable around”. Be a man and do something positive for the culture instead of whining.

  5. nba is fixed says:

    Remember a few years ago the Detroit media called former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick the hip hop mayor? White people automatically associate all black people with rap music! That’s like saying all white people love and worship everything on Fox News, which you know isn’t true. Even though we have a black President, racism and ignorance is still prevalent in the U.S. and always will be. Divide, and conquer and collect the cash!

  6. phil Dawson says:

    texas will suck in 2014 whether he is hip or not. who gives a shit. win some damn games

  7. not even wrong says:

    I have a different perspective here. When I was in middle school my father was transferred to a different location and the school I went to was predominantly black. Let’s just say that I was a target because of my skin color. The difference is that who was I going to complain to? White people aren’t allowed to be victims of racism? Even the football coach thought it was hilarious that his running back was a “cracker” (his words). So before you get on your high horse maybe you should lead by example and judge people based on their value not their skin color. Maybe start by changing the name of this site from “blacksportsonline”.

  8. Conundrum says:

    Robert, I can relate to your childhood experience. It’s not new or unique. I was once playing with friends in my neighbor’s yard when a car pulled in. They muttered “dirty Jews!” Then they turned to me and said, “Oh, not you–your one of the clean ones”.
    There was a time in my lifetime when there were no black players in the Sugar Bowl, when the idea of hiring a black head coach in Texas was considered preposteous, and where the mere thought of hiring a black head coach with a white wife was grounds for an even more troubling response. The fact that both Texas and Texas A&M have black football coaches speaks volumes for how far we as a society have come. There will always be the bigots, but what’s important is that the institutions have moved beyond the old thinking.

  9. nba is fixed says:

    Texas, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, UCLA, Stanford, Washtington, Miami and Mississippi State have all hired black head coaches. Thank you! USC, Arizona State, CAL, San Diego State and Oregon have never hired minority head coaches. Shocking that not one but four schools from the south would hire black head coaches before the premier west coast schools!
