  1. Honestly… he could've gone further *shrug*.

    Nope, Rock didn't go nearly far enough. No disrespect to 42 he was a good player but by no means great and gets no special props from me. IMO, black folks really an imdependent or additional educational system and stop letting white folks define thier hero so they can begin to utilize critical thinking skills to analyze reality and results to avoid past mistakes. Case and point. In the end 42's inclusion in the Majors merely co-signed and partially sealed the demise of Negro League which had far superior players and was black controlled and own. If the players and black audience of the Negro League era had the correct conciousness and fortitude to stuck to thier guns true white fans of baseball would of crossed over to them. (Or did a Tulsa move..smh.) Unfortunately as long as folk subconcious feel inferior they'll continue to trade ownership for a check. Sometimes you have to scarifice in the short term to truly advance in the long run. IMO.

IMO, black folks really need an independent (or at least an additional) educational system and stop letting crackers define their heroes. Folks really need to study their own history and begin to utilize critical thinking skills to analyze reality and results to avoid past mistakes.

  4. Just another story of blacks begging to be accepted into white society. Segregation FORCED us to do for self and each other. Meanwhile, the Civil Rights Movement inadvertently created a dependency on our oppressor to produce for us.

    Jackie Robinson was an integrationist traitor. The negro league not only employed more black people, but pay black players more. I work unceasingly to bring about a future where we as a people accept the truth that absolutely no good can come from seeking nor having the acceptance of any race before we accept ourselves before anyone else. And as for EVERY single black person alive who believes that it is in ANY circumstance ok to choose another race over their own, they are guilty of high race treason and are not fit for life.

  6. Chris Rock was merely stating what closed minded people refuse to see and acknowledge. He told the TRUTH!

  7. Our sports teams that were only black employed black people and the money was ours. Now we do not share any money from sports arenas at all.

  8. Right on Chris! Of course Jackie was not the best player but I understand his role…Thanks Chris.

  9. Monise Davis says:

    He actually treaded lightly.

  10. He didn't go far enough. We didn't NEED the MLB. Just like we don't need country and hillbilly music. We got Jazz, R&B, Hip hop, house, etc. We NEVER should've integrated our sports and arts. But no matter how you flip the script they always find a way to capitalize off us and created wealth off our backs. Just how many ball players now are willing to leave the NBA or NFL so we can form our own and build our own wealth?(sound of crickets)!

  11. He's telling the truth, even though you can tell he's holding back
