Danced true politic.. for the games..

Danced politic.. for the games..

Tony  HELLO.. I FIND IT TRAGIC THAT ‘TABLOID TACTICS’                    HAVE EXTENDED RACISM IN ANY WAY..

            A MAN TODAY ASKED ME IF I FOLLOWED            
            BASKETBALL.. ANTICIPATING THE TOPIC.. I SAID..
            ‘I FOLLOW PRIVACY FIRST’..
             
            WHEN A MAN DISCUSSES HIS FEELINGS.. ABOUT FAMILY.. ESP. A DAUGHTER.. IT IS NECESSARILY PERSONAL.. THUS IT MAY NOT BE HOW HE ACTS AROUND OTHERS..
  1. BUT A NEED TO UNDERSTAND
    IN FACT IT QUITE OBVIOUSLY IS NOT HOW HE SOCIALLY PRESENTS HIMSELF..  (IE.. the tabloids would have warmed their roasting fires at the hint of such a thing)..
    NOW THIS SAME MAN HAS HAD HIS LIFE TURNED UPSIDE-DOWN BY AN UNTHINKING ACT.. 

    PROMPTING A ‘RUSH TO JUDGEMENT’.. TAKING WHAT HE LOVES FOR FEELING.. EXPRESSING.. TRYING TO UNDERSTAND.. IN WHAT WAS THOUGHT TO BE A PRIVATE PLACE.. 
    VIOLATING THIS MAN’S PRIVACY WAS A SINGULARLY SELFISH AND DESTRUCTIVE ACT.. YOUNG BLACKS.. AND BLACK BASKETBALL PLAYERS.. AS WELL AS THOSE PLAYERS.. COACHES.. ETC.. WHO THINK THEY ARE UNINVOLVED.. FEEL THEY ARE BETRAYED BY SOMEONE WHO HAS SUPPORTED WELL WHAT THEY LOVE.. THIS OPINE OF MINE IS BASED ON DECADES OF BELIEF IN AN EGALITARIAN SOCIETY.. A FREE SOCIETY.. I HAVE LEARNED THERE ARE RARELY ANY HEROES FOUND OVERINDULGING THE EVIL OF RACISM.. THERE NEVER IS IN LIFE WHEN THE GOAL IS SNAKY EXPLOITATION..
    WE ALL KNOW SNAKES ARE DEAF.. AND APPEAR UNCARING BY HUMAN STANDARDS.. I FIND IT TRAGIC THAT A MAN’S RIGHT TO PRIVATE COMMUNICATIONS TO A FRIEND?.. WAS RECORDED.. TAKEN IN COLLUSION OR FROM THE RECORDING INDIVIDUAL’S MACHINE.. UNKNOWN TO THE OWNER OF THAT MACHINE.. (which in itself shows what this taking was)  
    A PERSON WHO IS SIGHTED.. A PERSON WHO CAN HEAR.. PROBABLY ENJOYS EXPRESSING THEMSELVES BUT DOES NOT HAVE THE GUTS…  
    JOINS THOSE RANKS OF DISREPUTABLE MORONIC PARASITES.. (mother loving tabloids or organizations that are attracted to the cheesy scent of betrayal)
    TOOK  PRIVATE MOMENTS THAT BELONGED TO ANOTHER.. AT EXPENSE TO EVERYONE..
    AGAIN TAKING A RISK OF ‘BACKSLIDING’ INTO THE GARBAGE DUMP OF GOSSIP AND RACISM..I AM A MAN WHO PAYS FOR HYPOCRISY.. ONE TIME.. IN ONE SITUATION.. WITH ONE PERSON.. I BROKE FAITH.. I SUFFERED IN CONSCIENCE FOR DECADES.. LEARNING A LIFETIME LESSON.. MY MOTHER-IN-LAW PASSED ON IN 1984.. SHE USED TO SAY.. ‘DO NOT SAY SOMETHING UNLESS YOU WANT TO SEE IT IN THE PAPERS’.. (news)  
    I AGREE.. FOR YOU SEE.. THOSE WHO SNEAK.. EAVESDROP.. ANY FRIEND.. LOOK.. TAKE A PEEK.. SEE IT  OUT OF CONTEXT.. RARELY GET IT RIGHT..TO AVOID MISUNDERSTANDING OF ANY KIND.. I HAVE ALWAYS WISHED FOR AND SUPPORTED AN EGALITARIAN.. FREE SOCIETY.. WHERE WE CAN BE FREE TO GROW TO OURSELVES.. SHARE OUR FEELINGS.. OUR GIFTS.. IN FIRM FRIENDLY EXCHANGE..
    WHO CAN BE JUDGMENTAL?.. WHO CAN JUDGE SO BLIND?..  WHO WANTS PEACE FOR OTHERS BROTHERS.. WHO CARES FOR SANE MINDS?  
    IN TAKING THE FINAL STEPS ERADICATING RACISM TO ANY BUT HISTORICAL MEMORIES.. I LEARNED TO REMEMBER.. ‘RACISM DID NOT JUST FALL ON THE BACKS OF BLACKS’.. FROM POLITICIAN.. TO WINO.. DEMON HEAD TO PRIEST.. SNARL OF HUNGRY WOLF.. LAMB BLEAT IN HIS FLEECE..
    FROM THE PRIMAL LIVING THING.. FROM WHERE ALL FEELING FLOWS.. MAN WILL ALWAYS QUEST.. WHERE HE GOES.. WITH WHAT HE KNOWS..
    PRIVATE ON THE LAND.. THERE CAN BE NO JUSTICE.. NO PEACE.. MISUNDERSTANDING MAN..
    YES HE SAID IT.. YES HE THOUGHT IT PRIVATE.. YES HE HAS THE RIGHT TO QUESTION.. TO LEARN.. TO EXPRESS.. 
    PEACE TONY

I write philosophy and poetry. I postulate solutions for problems..I find similiar things in history to compare to present day, hoping to find a solution to the seemingly difficult task of giving and receiving love. I play music. Blues harp, piano, guitar, electric and acoustic. I sing..I love to sing..Peace Tony

    My feelings about this are similar to yours. I find it all-around distressing. We know there are many people who have racist feelings. I HOPE the number of those people will continue to decline as we evolve.
    But, to have his comments in a private conversation recorded and shared with the media. That just feels wrong to me.

    • Yes.. The rights of one to express themselves is what has made our country one of hope in all areas..
      One would be foolish to tell a wolf not to howl.. a lamb not to bleat.. Great writers would have nothing social to write about.. no more soaps.. or dreams of perfect little homes.. children.. As we find our way to survive this wonderful planet.. what has fallen on this man is an extension of the horror that is racism.. dirty and exploitative.. beyond the pale of any decency once held to the light.. a right violated cannot result in recognition of rights for another.. or lack of respect in anger.. Peace Tony
