A Unique Take on Sports and Entertainment
I just read you letter of introduction. I congratulate you on your new business.
However, I feel after reading your letter that you do not have a clue about what the problems are with race issues between whites & blacks.
One would think that by now everyone would understand this age old issue.
Just to qualify me as a person that just might have a different view than most black or white person.
My perspective started in 1955. I was in boot camp for the US Navy. I was stationed in San Diago. CA.
After my third week of boot camp I and the rest of my company was allowed to go to town for the night.
There were 8 sailors in our band of trainees. We wanted to get some great food in our bellies.
We entered the first café we came across. We walked in and was waiting to be seated. The hosted approached us and said ” sorry but we do not serve Negros in this restaurant.
We were all very disappointed. I asked the hostess if she understood that the two black sailors were U.S. Navy Military sailors. I also informed her that they were ready to fight for our country. She replied that she was sorry but the white sailors could take a seat. But the black sailor would have to leave.
Long story short we went to 4 restaurants and were told the same thing. At the fourth restaurant we were escorted to the police station because we were “causing too much trouble”.
I owned and operated a retail business for 45 years. I felt like I was on the front lines in a war maneuver.
I have a story to tell. I would like to get someone like yourself to hear this story.
America needs to hear this story. The black community needs to hear this story. This story could go a long way in helping people understand just what the story is.
Racism is very real in the USA. But the reason for the racism is greatly misunderstood.I understand it. I would like someone to hear this story before I die.
I am 78 1/2 yrs. old. Time is wasting.
If color doesn’t matter to you then it wouldn’t be in the domain name. You not helping you are creating divide. If You really want equality then the name would be different. You are acting like black people need special treatment, why? are they better than everyone else? Lesser than everyone else? The great bill Russell said it best – don’t give me special treatment cause I’m a black man, and don’t disrespect me cause I’m a black man, just treat me as a man.
What did buck say to you when you interviewed him about the moss quote? You must have know what he meant right?
